I agree with Qpongirl. I am sorry too, that you are discourage. :( The first week I came across this site and my husband set up the printer for me, I was like a kid in a candy store. lol I ended up spending and saving--but getting disappointed with a few things as well. Some prices didn't match what KLC posted (cost of higher living here I suppose) and some coupons weren't worth it. What I do now is look for what my family and myself needs and go by that. Pantry staples, favorite brands, laundry items, etc. The basics. Everything else is just gravy to splurge on every now and then. Hang in there!!
I understand its easy to get discourage...I to live in a small town that has Walmart/Walgreens/Rite Aids but I have to drive 20 mins to do my Target runs (which usually are out of what I went after)...As for the coupons I honestly have stopped buying the papers because it was costing me more money than I stood to save long term...By the time I would buy 4 papers at $2 each that was 8 dollars and typically I would be after 1 or 2 big value coupons...What I do now is I plan a week ahead when the upcoming weeks previews come out as well as the upcoming weeks coupons (you can find the matchups on may facebook groups and coupon sites such as hip2save or yeswecoupon...I also found a few coupon clippers that I found to be reliable...For instance in my local paper I got the $3 Lysol coupon so that was $2 wasted...My coupon clipper had it where I got 20 of the $5 Lysol coupons for only $2 total...Everyone coupons differently and has to find what works for them individually but for me I found this way is more beneficial time wise stress wise and finacially...

The total needed to generate +up rewards is BEFORE coupons are applied. Manufacturer coupons are a form of payment for the item since the retailer receives the amount specified on each coupon from the manufacturer.
I shop at RA a lot, and in my experiences, you go by what price the item rings up to get to the $ threshold required for an UP reward to print--coupons do not factor in. It sounds like you got some bad info from an employee who is not familiar with how all of this really works. If I were you, I would try the deal reaching $20 BEFORE coupons and see if the UP reward prints. If it does not, simply return the items right then and there. This way you will know for sure. I am willing to bet that your UP reward will print, as long as you buy $20 of participating products and sizes. Good luck!

It has worked for us in Safari, Chrome and Firefox. Maybe it is an adblocker or some other ad-on that is keeping you from seeing it correctly? Occasionally I end up having to use an "incognito" or "in-private browsing" to get things to work correctly since that mode does not have all of the ad-ons running. Also, when I click play to watch the video, I don't have to watch it all the way through, a link pops up in the upper right corner to print coupon.
Hope that helps.
