Reader deals 10/26/16: Here are some of the deals, heads up, and requests you shared recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?
- Email Rachel: [email protected]
- Comment below, or on any post where it seems to fit.
- Post on the Mashup Mom Facebook page or in the Hot Deals group.
- More on the ongoing car-buying discussion, from Illini Mom: “4+ years ago, I had decided I wanted a new Honda CRV. I inquired about Costco pricing. They sent me to the O’Hare Honda in Des Plaines. I went there by myself(husband was unavailable). I told my salesman exactly what features or add-ons that I wanted. He gave me a printed price on paper. The day afterward, I went to my hometown Honda, printed invoice in hand, and negotiated a deal that was the same or a teeny bit better as Costco. We told the mgr that we wanted to keep our business locally. The sales mgr appreciated our frankness & honesty when we showed him the printed invoice. We never looked back! Great car with everything we needed. Good luck!”
- And from Lori: “Regarding buying a car, we looked into Costco, wasn’t really any deal. Your best bet is too research the car you want online. Cars.com, autotrader, and I know there is another search type engine that will actually tell you what $ is a good price, average, and high. Take your time, and find the dealer that has the lowest price. Bob Roarman in Schuamburg was significantly lower than any other dealer, and they even dealt off that price. The more research you do the better off you will be!”
- Sarah shares that: “Costco for glasses is excellent! I had a great experience. Saved $200 by getting my eye exam done by my regular eye doc through my VSP insurance, then taking the RX to Costco. (Their eye doc doesn’t take my insurance for the exam) Ordered glasses on a Tues. evening right before they closed, and they were ready earlier than expected – picked them up Friday. I paid the same price ($80ish) that I paid last year at one of the online glasses places (Glasses USA I think?) and the Costco ones are much better. I am really glad I didn’t pay $289 for glasses from my eye doctor.”
- Here’s a deal CharlieQ spotted: “CVS has Tic Tacs B2G1 @ $1.67. There are 6 separate flavors offering Ibotta rebates 2 each @ $.75, $.50, & $.25 ($3 total). Buy 6 (one of each flavor). Use 3 BOGO IP (SS). Pay $1.67, submit 6 Ibotta for $3 total. Register prompted for price input and accepted 3 coupons @ $1.67.”
- Cleob asks: “Can someone confirm that the pictured rebate form will work with the Beringer wine on sale at Jewel? I notice the sale wine is not the same as the varieties/bottles shown on the rebate form. But Jewel store says it’s the correct rebate form and they are tagged on the wine bottles. Just not sure if the sale wine qualifies for this rebate. Any thoughts on this?”
And Jane suggests: “Also check your Ibotta if you’re doing the wine rebate deal, I have $1/1 Sutter Home on mine. No Beringer though.”
- From christine on the grand re-opening Jewel deals: “I don’t live in these areas, but I continue to get a $5/50 coupon in my inserts on Wednesday. The insert also has sale items that are not at all Jewel stores. In fact, they happen to be some of the grand reopening prices on some items. This is at the West Dundee store.”
- A suggestion from Marianne on the Facebook freebies: “I gave up trying to do it at the register. I just bring the item to Customer Service Desk and they typically know what I am talking about and have the paper to scan there.”
- Eun says: “1% off and $1 Lay’s on savingstar, exp. 10/31, makes the Lay’s family size chips $1.”
- Look at this rebate hangtag feelgood found! Remember last year’s deals? He comments: “There should be some good prices and coupons for Pinnacle coming up before and during the holidays. I did the same rebate last year, paid $37 for 6 bottles after all coupons at Berkots and got $50 back.”
- Something to look for from Kitty: “Found this on a large display at Target in Glenview at front of store.”
Select Toys R Us stores are now carrying American Girl Truly Me items, and the first guests to visit the American Girl Shop at participating stores on Saturday 10/29 will receive a free gift from store opening until gifts are gone — plus, enter for your chance to win a free American Girl Truly Me Doll.
(Find a participating location here — but the only one I see in IL is the store in Joliet!)
LOL — seriously! So today I spotted Driscoll’s organic strawberries 2/$4.00 at Pete’s Market in Oakbrook Terrace, and they looked great! (The conventional were $1.99, so I’m thinking it’s worth the extra penny here…) But of course I didn’t have any Driscoll’s coupons with me. When I print them out and carry them, I can walk around for weeks seeing sales on every other brand until they expire, but whenever I don’t have Driscoll’s coupons, I’m sure to spot a deal. Is it just me? 😉
Pete’s also has Earthbound Farm organic salads for $1.98, organic cauliflower $.99/lb, and organic Lacinato kale $1.69 each off the top of my head, for all you organic produce shoppers out there…
Target is now offering free shipping and returns on all orders through January 1, 2017 — no minimum purchase required, and no REDcard needed! (Although you’ll save that extra 5% off if you do use REDcard 🙂 ) I guess this means that the holiday shopping season has now officially started?
Speaking of Target and early holiday shopping, I was just in Cartwheel and saw an offer for 50% off a Barbie President two pack dolls. Plus a couple other high value Cartwheel toy offers:
The Rebecca Everlene Trust Company is holding its annual event for kids, a pre-Halloween celebration where kids can take part in Halloween poem readings, make their own yummy sweets and even tinker with “spook-licorice” science experiments. This year’s theme is Candy Land Adventure, with the little ones flexing their creative muscles by crafting four kinds of candy (think PB&J cheesecake bites and marshmallow-choco-nut delights) and designing their very own perfect-for-Halloween tutus or capes. Lunch, drinks and goodie bags will also be provided at this fun family event at Leona’s Restaurant in Chicago.

This is a great price for a CHI, and you get free two day shipping or free in store pickup, your choice.
Head over to Taco Bell next Weds. 11/2/16 for a free Doritos Loco taco from 2-6 PM local time. Because someone stole a base in the World Series, apparently! 🙂
And then you can also read all the comments on their Facebook post — apparently people are very upset they can no longer buy a beefy crunch burrito.
