Meijer deals week of 10/23/14 – 10/29/14


Here are the best Chicago Meijer deals and coupon matchups (for the Meijer Thursday market ads) I see for the week of 10/23/14 – 10/29/14.

(Note: Smaller neighborhood grocery Chicago Meijers such as Niles, Melrose Park, Berwyn, and Orland Park, go off different and more localized ads, so some of your deals may differ from those shown here. Please verify against your own ad. Other states, Northwest Indiana, and downstate IL are on the Sunday-Thursday ad schedule, so sales there start the Sunday before the Thursday they start in Chicagoland in IL.)

  • From jaci: “Looks like you can do the candy deal twice at CVS even though the ad says 1.”

Food 4 Less

  • Martha posts on Facebook: “Hi Rachel, I just read elsewhere on Facebook that the Food 4 Less in Bolingbrook has started marking down their merchandise in the stores in preparation for its closing next month. That person only mentioned Baby formula is 30% off. I called the store and the person said that “selected items” are marked down, not necessarily sections of the store. Does anyone know anything else that has been discounted? Also, she said that they are still accepting coupons on discounted items.”


  • A question from ellen: “were the p&g catalinas nationa or store ones? i have a raincheck for the olay but only want if the catalina is still good. do you know the end daes?”
  • Ashley responds: “It is over but it is returning again. I believe its next week”
  • And ellen asks: “do you mean next week starting tomorrow 10/23 or next week 10/26-11/1?”
  • S.T. shares: “About the Mejier cheese deal: I too was only deducted $2.48 with the same scenario. I have noticed that BOGO deals combined with mPerks MQs will deduct the amount of free item after the MQ discount. I was not happy when I was buying BOGO vitamins last month with a $3 off mPerks MQ. Is this right?”


  • Patty emails: “If you still have your Menards Sorry Slip (rain check) for the Curad Flexible Fabric bandages at 2/$1, use them soon as these items are now in the Clearance section of the bandages.  It looks like Menards has switched to Band-Aid brand and will no longer carry Curad.  They’re marked down to $0.96.”

  • Alicia adds: “Re: pie pumpkins – doesn’t Menards have them for $1.49 this week?”

Reader requests

  • Jeff sends over: “I wonder if you or your readers would know of GF restaurants in the Glendale Heights/Bloomingdale/ Carol Stream area (or even St. Charles on North Ave). I am taking my friend out for her birthday and she can only eat GF. I already looked around but didn’t come up with much. Panera doesn’t seem to carry GF.”


  • Mandi found: “Walgreens has fleece lined leggings for 2/$10. I just bought some and they seem like they are good quality.”
