First, read this.

Walgreens is having a 4-Day Sale from Wednesday to Saturday. If you spend $25 (pre-coupon) in one transaction, you get $5 Register Rewards. These RR's will roll into each other, so you can use one to pay for a transaction of $25 or more (pre-coupon) and you will get another $5 RR. You can only used one of the $5 RR per transaction, though.
