Do you know if you can use Up rewards to cover the deposit on the soda cans? TIA

There are no pay bottle deposits here, so I'm not really sure! You might want to post that question on Slick Deals or Hot Coupon World and see if anyone knows.

When you put that the limit is 2 on the Playtex tampons..does that mean that after I buy two, if I wanted to buy 2 more in another transaction, I won't get any UP rewards? Also, if I use my $3 UP reward from the Playtex to buy another Playtex, will it give me another $3 UP reward?

Good trip for me at RA today. Bummer at my local CVS. I can only use one card per trip. No more using DH card as a separate transaction. Guess, I'll have to run to another CVS to do a second deal. Not sure why, I usually spend $20.00 each transaction.

It means that no matter how many you buy, you'll only get two $3 UP Rewards for the Playtex. I bought mine at the same time, but I could have bought each individually. You can use your Playtex rewards to buy more Playtex if you want, it "rolls".

That stinks! Maybe you could make your second trip later in the day when the cashiers are different. That's what I usually do. I rarely do back to back transactions with different cards, partly because I don't want to confuse myself and mess up and partly because I don't want to attract too much attention to myself.

Just updated the post with all the limits for each deal at RA, but that one is limit 3 this week. :)
