  • Regarding deli ends, Liz says: “Angelo Caputo’s Hanover Park has them – also in the deli area in back corner”

Household tips

  • On the Ziploc Perfect Portions, gramma shares: “the plastic conforms to the meat (unlike Ziploc bags themselves), and thus helps to prevent freezer burn.”
  • Anne comments: “I would like to share a tip on hot peppers and contacts. I’ve found that the Clear Care contact solution does a GREAT job of removing those oils from the contacts. When I used to use the multi-purpose-type solutions, I would take the contacts out fine, but when I went to put them back in, they were contaminated by the residual oils on my fingers and would burn like crazy. Since switching to Clear Care – not a problem at all. It’s hydrogen peroxide, so you have to be careful not to use it like a rinse, but I am a huge fan!” I totally agree! It was recommended to me by an optometrist many years ago and I only use that type now.



  • From Outlander: “Savers in St. Charles is closing. Everything 50%off and today is the last day. Still quite a bit left I think.”

Sears Outlet

  • Martha posts about the free swimsuit on Facebook: “I went to the Naperville store, and really all that was there was non-matching separates for both girls and women (didn’t bother looking for boys/mens). So unless you’re able to be creative with the tops and bottoms, you might be wasting your time.


  • Shandelle reports: “The GoPicnic items are also generating $1.50/2 target store coupons at the register! I’ve gotten 4 of them so far. So they can stack with the free coupon. The free coupon also says $2.98 off but scans for $3 off.”
  • And she asks: “Are there any other kinds carried at Target? I’ve been picking them up at Target every time I’m there since the coupon came out.. I have so many (good donation items) but I’m wondering if they carry any other kinds than the 3 breakfast ones.”


  •  Emily on the deli ends: “I believe they are in the bottom of the open cooler with the macaroni and potato salads across from deli now”

  • DON says: “Caputos almost always has these [deli ends], same price, 1.99 I believe …. we scavenge and give the rest to the dogs :)”
  • Sarah asks: “Is this Angelo Caputo’s? Where do they keep them?” In Elmwood Park, they are at the bottom of a tall refrigerator case across from the end of the deli closest to meat and produce, near the olive bar.
  • And DON responds: “YUP, Angelo Caputo’s Naperville, Deli area in the back near the corner”


  • On the Arm & Hammer coupon, Nancy says: “I can only print one per computer.”
  • But Wende says: “It only let me print one, also, when I first read this. But I tried just now and it let me print the second one. Weird . . .but ok!!!”


  • From evelyn: “I don’t know if everyone has the same offers but for me jingit has .80 back on water (it says $3 minimum purchase for the water but I have never had a receipt rejected for not meeting the minimum purchase amount.). And .50 for scott toilet paper.”
  • A question from Natalie on the Scott bath tissue: “I was wondering if it is also on the regular one not the soft one. If so does anyone else know the roll count.”

Household tips

  • Jane warns: “Wear gloves if you wear contacts as well. I learned the hard way years ago I had cut up hot peppers and took out my contacts hours after touching the pepper seeds/membranes and burned my eyes and the contacts! Nothing takes the oils out of the lenses (soft) even after I cleaned/soaked them they still burned. I did dishes and washed my hands several times during the day before touching the contacts and it still burned! I had to throw out those lenses. Since that time, I now wear gloves or use the knife to remove the seeds from peppers.”
  • On the deli ends, Kari O. shares: “My husband gets these and pulls out his sushi cookie cutter. We end up with fun shapes and he puts them in my daughters bento case for homemade lunchables. Easy and cheap!”
  • She also says: “I got these [Perfect Portions bags] free from the Jewel freezer promo last year. I have only used half the box since then, but I don’t portion out meats often. My family uses a whole package in most cases. lol. But we do use them for popcorn a lot. This way my kiddos can take a handful to go without using an expensive ziploc or taking a Tupperware container and losing it.”

Shop and Save

  • Laura recommends: “Also check Shop and Save, they usually have these [deli ends] buy one get one free.”

Ultra Foods

  • Mandy says: “Valli foods used to have [deli ends] near the deli.  Not sure where they are since they remodeled, but, they were very popular, so, I would assume they still have them.  Glendale Heights store.


  • Stephanie posts on Facebook about the beauty box promo: “I got mine today, well worth it! Full size products! I hearse the baby one is nice as well.
  • Neilly on Facebook agrees and shares: “Got mine today. Definitely worth $5!

Chicago Tribune

  • Nancy R comments: “Chicago Tribune – bumped up to $32.00 for 12 weeks (Wed/Thur/Fri/Sun). Called and cancelled as we don’t read enough of it to justify the cost.

Got the Sun- time coupons in the valu pack = free coupons for canceling the tribune!”

Reader requests

  • VB asks: “So in 2012 We bought our kids the Nabi tablets and purchased the warranties for them. Luckily we did since it looks like there is a flaw in the port connection that doesn’t allow them to charge without applying pressure. Anyway we are getting our money refunded (thank you warranty!) and I have decided to buy the kids an Ipad mini to replace the tablets. What we liked about the nabi’s is that they were very kid durable. Does anyone have recommendations on cases for ipad minis to make them more child proof?”
  • Kari O. responds: “Lifeproof. Expensive but worth every penny. My five year old and two year old haven’t destroyed or even scratched our iPad and it’s been 1.5 years. It’s even waterproof too. :)”
  • Shandelle is wondering: “Question for ladies. I finally found the $3.49 smaller packs of Tena restocked at my Target and got 8 tonight. Has anyone else used these for menstruation? I know they’re intended for incontinence but honestly would they work ok like normal pads? Just curious if anyone else has ever tried. This is my first time ever doing a free Tena deal so I don’t know anything about how well they’re made.”
  • Kari O.’s opinion: “It’s useable but definitely stiff and feels like you’re wearing a diaper. I donated all my mm tena to a worthy grandma.”

Sam’s Club

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “I went to the Sam’s open house and had the same experience as the first person that posted. Waited forever then most of the stuff they used to carry and the only reason I went was no longer being carried. The store was a mess. Thankfully there is Costco. Much better experience.


  • Faith on Facebook found: ” At my Target (Central Indiana) Mead college-ruled composition books were marked down to nine cents. Plus, I had one of the $1.00 off any Mead coupons left, which came off, so 11 of them were free!
  • An idea from Ashley: “PM COD Ghosts to Amazon. In same transaction add a $1 reservation card and pay $2.69!

New and improved: Meijer Rewards

Unlike our dear Rachel, I am fortunate enough to have a couple of Meijer stores within reasonable shopping distance. They are both smaller “marketplace” stores, but I do shop there regularly and have been a big fan of the rewards ever since they appeared in mPerks. And they recently updated them to make them even easier to use and more lucrative for the shopper!

Personalized Rewards

mperks home

On your mPerks home page, you will see a snapshot of the rewards you are earning. Usually, the first one will be a general dollar amount back when you spend up to a certain threshold. The usefulness of this reward might be the best feature of the new reward arrangement. It used to be that there were three categories of rewards. You could only have one of each active at a time and couldn’t add another in the same category until the one you first activated was earned or the end of the month came and they were all reset. This $/$$ type of reward was usually paired with categories I knew I would complete faster like dairy, meat, and produce.

Now, you can activate as many of your available rewards as you like at a time. The only limitation is that the earning period for each reward expires 28 days after you activate it. So on your first trip, you can activate the $/$$ AND any of the categories you are buying to ensure that your spending counts for both the general threshold and the category.

When a reward is earned, you will be able to clip it and it will move to your wallet and it will show you the expiration date. A new reward will become available once the earned one is clipped. The next time you check out with mPerks, you will be asked if you want to use the rewards you have clipped, so make sure you have enough in your cart to take full advantage of your earnings before you say yes. And if you have more than one clipped, it will ask if you want to use the next one once you have exceeded the amount of the previous.

dairy deliThe amount of the required spending that the reward is will vary from person to person, month to month, and category to category. And the actual reward categories can vary by account as well. This dairy, deli, and cheese reward has always been one of my favorites, so my spending requirement is relatively high. But since the rewards are calculated BEFORE any coupons (store or manufacturer), promos, or redeemed rewards, it adds up faster than you think. I am almost half way to earning this $10 reward. Here is how I got there:

Trip 1 ($4.99 credit, $3.24 OOP):

  • 2 bottles Simply Lemonade, $4.00. Used $.75/1 manufacturer Catalina coupon that printed at Meijer and a $1.00/$4.00 refrigerated juice/fruit drink store Catalina.
  • Dozen Meijer eggs, $.99.

Trip 2 ($12.00 credit, $8.00 OOP):

Trip 3 ($11.39 credit, $4.55 OOP):

  • 10 Yoplait cups, $5.00. Used two regional $1.00/5 coupons I traded for and got 5% off for using my Meijer credit card ($.25).
  • 2 Danimals smoothie 6 packs, $4.00. Used two $1.00/1 from the 8/24 SS and got $.20 off for the Meijer card.
  • Jell-O pudding 4 pack, $2.39. Free with the two Danimals.

My OOP has been about 55% of what I am getting credit for. If I extrapolate that, I will get $65 worth of dairy, deli, and cheese for net about $28. How cool is that? And for the most part, Meijer has enough good sales on the things I actually need that I don’t have to go looking for something to push me over to earn the reward. I needed the lemonade for a party drink and the eggs and yogurt were great prices for things we needed at the time anyway. That said, when I do need something that I can’t find a deal on, it is so nice to be able to buy it at Meijer knowing that I am getting at least something for it in earning for the reward.

beautyWhen the rewards have a smaller threshold like this beauty one, it is easy to work them into a deal for a particular week and make your own deal that can rival a drugstore or Target deal!

The others I have available right now are home appliances/furniture/storage, frozen food, movies/music/books, health care, apparel, and pets. Most of these are low threshold, as low as $5/$20. So any of these has the potential to save me a trip somewhere else by creating a deal on something I need!

AND, once you earn and clip the reward for a category, you can start earning it again (thanks, Kerri)!

Pharmacy Rewards

pharmacyAs you can see, I am not taking advantage of the Pharmacy rewards, but that is only because I don’t have any prescriptions to fill.

20 pharmacy meijer

If I did, I would definitely take them to Meijer. A 5% grocery and HBA coupon is always nice, plus the Catalina machines are VERY generous with these coupons for $20 off your next shopping trip when you fill a prescription.

Baby Rewards

babyI also haven’t made much of a dent in this one, mainly because the closest think I have to a baby is four and thankfully is no longer in need of things that qualify for this one. I did activate it before I bought a tub of wipes to complete her school supply list because you never know, right?

One stop shopping?

Rewards are just one of the reasons that if I had to choose only one store to shop, it just might be Meijer.

  • I also love that their Catalina machines aren’t stingy. I often get $/$$ coupons, both general and category-specific.
  • mPerks can be great for an extra manufacturer coupon here and there, plus I have been getting great ones lately like BOGO butter, $2/$5 coffee, etc.
  • They are constantly offering 5% off grocery, 15% off general merchandise, etc., both through mPerks and for using their credit card.
  • And I can use all of the cash back apps! Both Ibotta and Savingstar work there, on top of Checkout 51 and Shopmium.
  • Their acceptance of competitor coupons can be nice as well.
  • I find fun clearance there almost every time. Last time it was $1.34 boxes of graham cracker crumbs, and often it is meat.Last month I found a $40 immersion blender on clearance for $32. I had a 20% appliance mPerks coupon and a $5 category reward, plus it pushed me over my general spending reward, so my net cost was somewhere between $15 and $20.
  • Finally, and this might be the biggest thing, I find their produce prices and shelf prices for last-minute needs to be usually reasonable and often great. If I run out of cilantro, it may be $.33 at Tony’s but I might not need to go there otherwise. If I am already in Meijer it is nice to pay just $.50 as opposed to $.99-$1.99 at Jewel. I recently needed barbecue sauce for a party, and found the shelf price to be 25 cents lower at Meijer than anywhere else (plus I was able to use a 5% off grocery mperk).

If you aren’t taking advantage of Meijer rewards, now is the time to start!

Household tips

  • Anne shares some banana info: “On The Chew this week, they also mentioned separating them, but also suggested turning them upside down so they rest on their ends (if you don’t own a banana hook). Another interesting tip was to wrap the stem end with tinfoil to prevent air getting in and causing spoilage. On freezing bananas-they make really moist banana bread! I am going to try your freezing method next time.”
  • Kerri has a question: “How long can you freeze them for?” I think a few months at least, but they never last that long around here!
  • From kitty: “If you just want your bananas to last longer on the counter, I highly recommend the Debbie Meyer green bags. Yes, they are $9.99 at Bed Bath and Beyond, but you can use each one over and over and over by turning the bag inside out and shaking off the moisture. If the bag gets sticky, just wipe it off with a damp rag and let it dry. The bags are also great for extending the life of strawberries and many other fruits and vegetables as well.”
  • And jen reiterates: “you can throw whole bananas in the freezer then just take them out when you need them. I always have a bannanas in the freezer” You absolutely can! But as I mentioned in the post, they are hard to peel frozen so if you want to use them for ice cream or smoothies, where the frozen texture is important, peeling them first saves some frustration :).
  • But letsshop also thinks: “Yes very big pain to peel after frozen !”
  • She also says: “If you open bag every day to take one or two out they start to turn brown quicker ! And frost also seems to build up quicker .So I put them in smaller bags since its just mean and my husband .Also even tho they get brown after while they are still fine . Been doing this for years ,Produce store where I shop use to shop would have large amount of ripe bananas in a box reduced for $2.00 (:”

Sam’s Club

  • An experience from jennyh: “Went today, they required us to go to customer service before shopping. 15 minutes in line there. Then the cashier had no clue about getting any gift cards with memberships. A bunch of people in line had printouts for $10 gift card after the $45 membership charge and after asking for that a manager informed our cashier and we were granted a gift card. Honestly I think she was playing dumb. So for us in Elgin, they have no clue about any gift card back and will not mention it or automatically give it to you. And its only $10 back, not $20″
  • But Jean reports: “I was at the Crystal Lake store today and had much better luck. Went to Customer Service right away and got a temporary pass and after finding several items, I decided to get the membership. Both times at customer service I did not have to wait and they immediately told me about the $20.00 gift card (yes, it was $20 not $10!) for doing the membership! Basically paid for what i bought!”


  • Natalie reports: “For the Mucinex deal at Target, I price matched the 30ct package with the $9.99 online price at They allowed me to use the 25% cartwheel, $2 target printable, and $7 MQ. It actually gave me $1.01 in overage!”
  • San on Facebook did that too: “I priced match their online 30 count for $9.99 used $7 off manufacturer, $2 store, and 25% CW.

Ultra Foods

  • On the Campbell’s Slow Kettle soup, ellen reports: “not on sale at crestwood.” Maybe it is just Forest Park? Sorry everyone!
  • A question on the free milk, from Jane: “Couldn’t you just type in the web page and print out the mobile coupon for them to scan like we can do for Target mobile coupons? I would love to try this. Anyone get the milk at Target yet? I cannot imagine the cashiers there having the knowledge to even scan your phone!” I used the mobile offer at Ultra and I don’t think a print out would work. There is nothing to scan. It just tells you to tap it in front of the cashier then “Redeemed” appears over the page with the PLU# there for the cashier to type in.
