Is the J&J baby wash buy $30 get $10 back just going for this week? Or was it one of the monthly deals?

Brooke,
I'm pretty sure its just a weekly deal for this week.

Glad you're feeling better Suz, and also glad you had the good sense to stay home being that far under the weather!

Thanks!

So you can buy more of the same product in the same transaction and get mutipule up rewards. Like the nivea you bought 8 in 1 transaction and got back 4 $2 up rewards?

annathy,
The only reason I tried to go into work is that we have blackout periods where we're not supposed to be out, plus I have a brand new person in my department. Oh well, I tried, but just couldn't do it.

Stephanie,
Hell yeah! Isn't that nice? And unlike CVS, you get a separate UP Reward for each item (versus CVS that would lump them together and give you one huge EB). Its pretty nice!

On the Nivea tins, I was wondering if you could buy 2 at a time and roll the UP. I don't think it would work because the next 2 would only be $1.49 and the UP would be for $2, but I'm not seeing a whole lot in the ad next week and I don't want to get stuck with $10 worth of UP rewards.

Any information or suggestions would be welcome.

Love your site and the specific deal details that you give.

Michelle,
UP Rewards do roll, so if you can find a $0.51 filler, you could roll and roll and roll.
