Facts Dumpster Diving at RA!

Ok, so it isn't the dumpster, but still kinda funny. You know those bins to collect the plastic bags that RA has on the way out? I've noticed that people throw their receipts in there, so I have been grabbing what I can and using the codes for the $3/$15. I am also putting them in the Single Check Rebates...why not? I found one that qualifies for a $5 check!!!

I'm going to be one of those people throwing away my survey Q receipts in a few days, here. I've been splitting up my transactions for the last week to try to use them all and I swear I've received a new survey every single time. Of course I could have worse things to complain about....

Also, I think the survey limit has increased again because I definitely did more than 21 between yesterday and today alone and it's still letting me take it and print.

I don't get one too often myself. Maybe 1/4 receipts. But there's a store about 15min's north of me that I don't shop at to much that is just a 3/15 magnet.
I'm pretty sure every receipt is printing a 3/15 and the customers toss them all over the place.

So I'm beginning to think that it's just the way the store is set up and less about your Wellness account telling the register to print.

On the bottom of your receipts they have codes that you use online to take a survey and when you complete the survey you get a printable RA coupon for $3 off your order of $15 or more.

i have been getting them on almost every receipt!! I currently have 9 I think. Love those coupons! I havent seen any laying around here anywhere but maybe I need to look and see if I can spot any. I have been using private browsing on firefox and have not reached a limit message in awhile now, its been at least two weeks that I've been doing an unlimited number of surveys

I didn't know you firefox had a way to browse privately...hmmm...I need to know more! I'll go in stealth mode for that! I actually haven't been getting as many surveys as I used to though and have been rather bummed about that. Some surveys though, so I can't whine too much on that.

Now, hmm...I may just have to set out a recycle can at my RA (we don't have them) and "man" it personally!

I walked by the trashcan and one receipt with survey on it was half hanging out of it like someone wanted someone to find it...so i nabbed it...my mom said what are you doing? (taking trash out of the can?) and i said no i just found $3!!! then she understood!
but the reciept was only for foil pans (for easter) nothing rebate wise..darn..that would be awesome! lucky you! I'll have to look more often. I did ask the cashier for the reciept the last time i did a return..they try to crinkle them up here and i stopped her and said I'd like that please!! oh..she said..and then handed it to me.

Don't they make you match the rewards card to the printed receipt? CVS does.

Last time I brought my 12 yr old ds he saw them in the garbage and grabbed me at least 20 of them. No ups, most were for soda, beer, or candy. Makes me wonder about who shops there !

I have quite a few, I get one with every transaction, but I love everyone that works at my rite aid, so I do the work of filling out the survey and give my extra coupons to the employees. I went in today and spent more time chatting with the ladies than shopping! If I still have too many I will start doing raok giveaways of the codes.
