    I’m curious how you were able to get the Tums deal to work twice. I understood you could only get one register reward per offer. Any subsequent purchases you would receive the sale but not the register reward.

      If you have another card account (say a friend or family member), that would be one way of doing it….granted, you would have to have the same card to redeem at another time, but thats one way it could work

      Actually the RR’s are not tied to your account at all. As long as you purchase 1 Tums in each transaction and do not use the RR you previously earn for purchasing Tums you can do the deal as many times as you want. As you can see in Gretchen’s scenario, she did 3 transactions with the second one not including a Tums purchase so she could use the RR from the Tums in transaction 1.
