Help Sign What order do you hand the q's to cashier

I was at walgreens today , And was having a heck of a time with my manufactures q's. i didnt get to use any of my dove q's the register beeped and beeped, I was told to hand them to them , Mans first, then walgreens q's and then rr rewards,
Is that the way to give them to them in that order ? or is there a better way for the register not to beep at me

Thanks for all your help love this site
TIA

Yes, if you also want to use RRs because they count as man q's. If no RRs, then no, you don't need fillers because the wags q's don't count toward your total.

If you have 10 manufacturer's coupons, whether they are RR's or otherwise, you just need to make sure you have at least 10 items. If you have 2 Walgreens coupons you want to use in addition to those 10 manufacturer's Q's you do NOT need a filler if you hand them in the RR, manufacturer's Q's, Walgreens Q's order.

I always hand over RR LAST because they are NOT tied to a specific product. That means that if you miscalculate your OOP (like when something rings up lower than the ad price or something) you can still use your RR for a future purchase. If you use manufacturer Qs last, you may end up running back into the store or grabbing something overpriced by the register to get the register to cooperate with you. I never sacrifice my RR just to get a low OOP - I know I will be able to use them later if needed. I have a couple things I always need to buy at Wags so I am confident I will be able to use the RR towards that later on if I can't roll them in any given week

Still not too sure about this, but as I understand it, you're supposed to give the RR's first, then the MQ, then the Wags Q's. Although it doesn't matter because when I give the cashier my stack of Qs in that order, she always fans them out on the counter and picks and chooses which ones she wants to scan first. I always end up a couple pennies short and then she'll say, you can't use this RR.

I always hand over Manf Q first, then Wags IVC, then RR's.
Manf Q's first gets you the full value right then, IVC if they lower a item price may cost you the use of a Manf Q so use them second. RR's being just like money (to me) are used last so I can use $$ amount and expiration dates as needed. Never any beeps this way for me.

Yes Yes Yes... never sacrifice your RR for a low OOP because miscalucation will get you one of these days! Speaks from experience =( For me i use mQs, wQs and last RR! In the end, we all have one mission LOW OOP but be clever w/ it@

I think that when you use the RR first it may do something with the tax, but I could be mistaken. I usually do my order mq, wags q, then RR, but I have done it with RR first just not sure if I noticed a difference in anything.

I typically never have any beeps with mq, wags, then rr

Some managers tell their employees which order to scan the coupons. I know at my main store they scan the Wags coupons first and if you do the "oh I forgot I had these" and hand them last the cashiers get angry (only did that once and I truely had forgotten it in my stack of stuff and 3 kids). The cashier said the manager had made a big deal about it so she just didn't want to get in trouble. I don't want to irritate an otherwise friendly cashier over what order to scan the Q's if they are afraid they will get in trouble because of it.
But I do Wags, MFQ and RR. I do the RR last because I rarely know exactly what my total will be and that way I can hand over the right RR to get the lowest total. But I don't generally get the super low OOP because I only go about once a week.

I would hate it if they had to scan Wags coupons first. That would equate to no overage.
I am sorry that you have a store that does it that way.

Can you expalin to me how the way we give them to the cashier makes a difference? I guess I am kinda clueless! I can never figure out why it would matter they all have only one set amount on them so I don't get why one way is better then another way. How does that change the oop for the better?
Thank you

Some people are able to get overage using the MFQ first and then the WagsQ next. Say the item is originally $4.00 and then have a $3.00mfq for it but with the WagsQ the sale price is $2.99. If the cashier scans the mfq first it will take the whole $3.00 off and then the WagQ will drop the price of the item to $2.99 causing you to get $0.01 in overage. But if the cashier scans the WagQ first and drops the price the register will beep when the MFQ is scanned because it is worth more then the sale price of the item.

We have lousy coupons in my area so I don't ever seem to be able to get those overage level coupons anyway so I guess it doesn't bother me to much that my Wags is one of those that insists on WagsQ first.
