  • Kelly shares: “ALSO, a great deal on raspberries! Only $1. They are marked as 2/$4 but ring up at a $1. And darn it, they are NOT Driscoll’s but that would have been too good to be true! The cashier said they have been ringing up $1 yesterday and today (Monday) and didn’t know when or if that would change.”


  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “By the bys, did you know that at least here in Bolingbrook, the library offers free kindle loans? I’m currently reading 50 shades of Grey, but I also saw they had big titles like Game of Thrones available. It’s a 2 week loan, but you can most likely loan it again and again. At least my $19 kindle is getting a work out :)

  • From Eliza: “Friends of the family just moved into the city (Gold Coast) – any suggestions on a good housewarming gift for a young couple with an 8 month old? I’d like something Chicago specific, maybe something fun to do for baby and SAHM to do, but I’m drawing a giant blank. TIA!”
  • Liza is wondering: “Do anybody know how to put all target giftcards together on the target app”
  • VB asks: “Help we need advice on lawn care. We have a really bad weed problem and some of them are the really prickly ones that are tough to pull out. The hubby thinks that we should call a landscaper but I am afraid of that price tag. I think we should attempt to take care of the problem ourselves but like I said it has gotten really bad. Any suggestions on products? I heard round up was good.”
  • A response from julie: “It will really depend on the type of weed, some respond well to weed and feed type treatments while other may not. As for Roundup, make sure which product you are looking at. Some of their products are for clearing everything, including the grass.”
  • Tammy adds: “Trimec Classic works great on weeds. Try and find the concentrate. Roundup will kill your grass.”


  • Debbie reports: “I found the scotch tape back in the school supplies with the post-it notes (on the opposite side) for $1.02. It was a colored plastic. The coupon for the post-it notes wasn’t taking and the clerk said it was for a cube (pictured) but he manually put it through anyway. I didn’t see any cubes anyway. (Champaign Target)” See information on both deals here.
  • And gfamily95 sends over: “Saw this in the ‘back to school’  supply area. Scotch tape $1.02 signage. Used the $1.00 off Scotch tape or scissors item Target printable. Only .02 cents for Scotch tape! No issues or beeps! NOTE: coupon states, ‘one coupon or offer per guest.’”

  • On the ship to store deals, Beth confirms: “I did call and ask about manufacturers coupons because you can always go to CS after a transaction with your coupons and get reimbursed, but they said no, you couldn’t get reimbursed with an emailed receipt, just a register receipt, something about the way it’s scanned in or something. I was hoping to use the $1.50 off coupons as well as the free wipes coupon from this last sundays paper! Oh well, still a good deal on diapers!”
  • SoapboxTray emails: “I purchased 8 Downy Free & Gentle on price cut for $6.99 = $55.92. Minus the $10. discount for store ship. Minus $20. (2 $10. gift cards for 4 select purchases, btw other downy scents are included). Minus $2.30 for using Red Card. I will submit for the rebate another $10. *Minus another $10. *I also had the egift card from purchasing and picking up the 2 Bounty and 2 Charmin). OOP Paid $35.10 with tax. My total will end up being: $15.10 after rebate and gift cards. That is $1.89 a bottle. By the way I was too having issues with the store pickup selection but I waited until later on in the day and then it worked fine. It will actually be $10 less for me because I had that extra $10 gift card, but if you didn’t have it, you would pay 45.92 approx and then get $20 in GC and $10 on rebate. Hope that makes sense :) still comes to $15.10.”


  • On the L’Oreal Advanced deal, anna asks: “did any one try it?”
  • Laura reports: “I just did this L’Oreal shampoo/conditioner deal today (Tuesday). I did the above directions but bought the following: 1 shampoo $3.99 sale price 1 conditioner $3.99 sale price 2 hair spray $3.99 sale price each I only got ONE $1.50 RR and I think that this is due to the fact that I purchased two hairspray products and did not stick to just shampoo and conditioner. However, I did receive 6750 BR points! There is a Catalina printing on these products: L’Oreal Advanced Haircare Product, Any, Walgreens 7/7/2014 – 8/3/2014 Buy 2, Get $1.50 RR Buy 3, Get $3.00 RR The Catalina does say “ANY” so I’m not sure why I only received one $1.50 RR.”
  • A find from comicbob: “Walgreens had bottles of One-A-Day gummy vitamins on sale for $5.99. Use $3.00 off coupon from this weeks paper and get 3,000 points for buying 2.”


  • From jackie on the Dr. Pepper deal: “Targets price is also 4/$10. I price matched at Walmart for this deal with no problems”
  • And something to look for from julie: “Dr. Pepper fans keep an eye out for any 12-packs you currently have with a Fandango movie promotion on the box. There are $0.55/1 2 liter and $1/1 12-pack or 2 2-liters on the inside of the box.”

Reader deals 7/28/14

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.


  • From julie: “FYI – we just ordered [the Sam's Club membership] a day or 2 ago and they mail the vouchers to your house. I’m not sure if they mail everyone’s or if I clicked the wrong option, but I wanted to give a heads up to anyone that wanted to activate and use the membership right away that you’ll need to wait for it to come in the mail.”


  • From peaches: “The Kemp’s frozen  yogurt is not on sale anymore at Jewel.  I was just there tonight.”
  • On the D&W franks and sausages, Jane says: “Bourbonnais has a ton of books out BUT only chicken and hot dogs left, so $1.33 down to 50 cents each after coupon! I got several different varieties and they were all clearly marked on shelf.” *hint to others…if you don’t know where these are (like me!) they are in the Deli section and not in the regular meat or lunchmeat section. It took me 15 mins. to locate them this morning. Duh, and the seafood guy even had no clue where they were either!”
  • From feelgood: “I accidentally found this deal as I was poking around looking to redeem my expiring rainchecks for deli beef franks. Visited several Jewels, lower prices not marked at most stores, had to do a price scan to check for lower prices. I bought these for $3.00 each: smoked sausage cheddarwurst, black forest bratwurst, natural casing beef franks, uncured beef franks. Deli beef franks also $3.00, didn’t get any this time around. Saw 3 types of chicken sausages 3/$10, didn’t get any. Deli franks $2.50, made with beef and pork (no chicken filler), might be good. Found books in all the Jewels I visited this weekend: Lockport, Homer Glen, Lemont, and both Orland Park stores. Be careful and check your dates. Some sausages I got don’t expire until September. I also found some sausages with expired dates at several Jewels dating as far back as July 2nd!”
  • And a heads up from julie: “Check you dates!!!! We bought some last time they were on this sale and they were 1 week expired at the time. We didn’t notice the dates. They seemed to go bad on us within 24 hours after opening the package.”
  • A question from peaches: “Any books in the Evanston, Skokie, WIlmette area? I was in the Chicago Avenue store last night and they were out of books, and all they had were the chicken sausages and hot dogs. All I wanted was the chicken sausages anyway.”
  • Outlander comments: “I just checked my store, no books, but I had 5 Qs with me. I was happy to find the sausages (after a long search, since no one knew where they were :( ), only to see they were all expired within last week or two. Only one pack of Black Forest brats doesn’t exp. until 8/5, so I got that and will try it today. I got rainchecks for 10 Cheddarwurst, and 10 Black Forest brats. Now if I can only find the books! Does anyone have 15 extra Qs they can send me? I mean if your stores still have plenty of books. Please post if you can, I’d appreciate it!!! Thanks!!”
  • And diane also found expired: “No books at the Addison store& all they had were hotdogs. I picked up 5 different packages & all 5 were expired! Wood Dale store had all products as of noon today but also no books.”
  • CHRISTINE reports: “The hot dogs and sausages are on sale until 9/2.” Note they are in Wednesday’s ad at 2/$7.00 and Jewel sometimes pulls tags early, so wait at your own risk.
  • On the 7/31 expiration, Outlander says: “That doesn’t matter, if they were valid during the sale or when you got the raincheck. Even if I go a month from now to redeem my raincheck and use the Qs that exp. 7/31, I can still do it.” YMMV on that, although if you buy them now and post-redeem the coupons, they will take them up to 60 days as long as the purchase was before the coupon expired.
  • Laura reports: “Went today (Monday) for the Dietz & Watson hot dogs. Worked perfectly and got myself some nitrate free hot dogs for $1.00! Note: the hot dogs are not by the “regular” hot dog cooler area. At my Jewel, they are located near the Deli in a cooler.”

  • Shandelle wonders: “Does anyone know if they’ve seen Tortillaland uncooked tortillas around the Chicago area? I received a coupon in the mail to try one free but so far did not see that WM, Jewel or Food4Less carried them. Their site lists Meijer but it’s kinda far so I haven’t checked there yet.”
  • Callie asks: “Does anyone know if the P&G rebate will work with an amazon.com receipt? They are having a spend $50 get a $15 giftcard on certain products. I think you could combine that with the rebate to get 25 off…”
  • On the washer & dryer, liz is wondering: “So does anyone think this is a good deal?”
  • Jane is skeptical: “It says you are saving $1000 but it is still a “Kenmore” and I don’t care if it is made by Whirlpool (or another company) for Sears’ specs, you are still getting a Kenmore. I hate my Kenmore set, period. I bought it under the impression that it would be exactly like my old Whirlpool set (which I loved) but it is not the same! This set I’m sure is a better and newer model but I will go back to my old brand the next time I buy new. This is only my opinion and I am just putting in my 2 cents worth. Some people swear by Kenmore. It sure does look good on paper though, doesn’t it?”


  • Melissa A reports: “Adult size S-sport shoes ranged in price from 34.99 to 39.99 at the Oswego Target”
  • Krystle shares her ship to store experience: “I picked up my order today, the e-gift card was emailed 10 minutes after (it can take up to 4 hrs). Once you receive the e-gift card you can then add it to your ‘Gift Cards’ on your Target app. This section of the app stores, combines, shares and provides a barcode to scan in store.”
  • Rosemary posts on Facebook: “My Target today has buy one toy, get one toy 40% off. It applies to the clearance toys too for a great deal!”


  • Kitty noticed: ” Walgreens has milk for $2.49; Ibotta 25c = $2.24/gallon”
