Free Kindle books and cheap Kindle books info

Free Kindle books are usually only free for a day or two, and cheap Kindle books can go up in price. Prices are current as of the date and time of this post, but can change at any time.

Kleenex $.78 a box or less shipped


How about 36 boxes of 85 sheet Kleenex, $28.17 shipped when you clip the $5 coupon on the page and check out with subscribe & save? That’s only $.78 per box, shipped to your door — even less if you are on the 15-20% off subscribe & save tier!


Prices on Amazon often change quickly. You need to be logged in to see and clip coupons, which are limit one per account and will come off just the first shipment. You can cancel subscribe & save or skip a shipment at any time. You get 5% off and free shipping with subscribe & save, which increases to 15% off if you have five subscriptions on the same day/month, or 20% off if you have five + Amazon Mom with Prime — in which case your price will be even lower than shown above!

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.


  • Janice is a fan of the HSI flat iron: “Love mine. My daughter comes over to use mine all the time.”


  • On the cookies someone had trouble with, feelgood had better luck: “I bought both the S’mores marshmallow and the Simply Made peanut butter chocolate chip, both rang up $1.49 each after the instant discount. Used $1.50/1 from KFR redemption for free cookies. A friend tried the S’mores peanut butter, those rang up $1.99 and no instant discount came off.”
  • Also from feelgood: “Found this at all three Jewels I went to tonight. These Dietz & Watson 16 oz sausages marked $6.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00 each: Smoked Sausage Cheddarwurst, Black Forest Bratwurst, Natural Casing Beef Franks, Uncured Beef Franks. Deli Beef Franks, marked $5.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00. Deli Franks, marked $5.49 on the shelf, scanned for $2.50. After the $2.00/1 coupon found on page 11 of the monthly Big Book of Savings, makes the sausages $1.00 or $0.50 each!”
  • Finally, he shares: “Jewel has a gift card promo until Tuesday 7/29. Buy a $100 American Express Gift card, get a $10 Jewel catalina for your next purchase. $10 catalina expires a week later. Bought some yesterday, with the $5.95 fee total is $105.95, so a $4.05 MM. Even better if you pay with a credit card that offers cashback, miles or points for purchases.”


  • Lisa reports on the Downy deal: “Yes, it rolls. You will need a filler just like Walgreens if you are using a coupon on every item you buy. I found Downy at my store with Spanish print for $3.47 so with tax it ended up being a $3.88 mm for 3 with coupon.”
  • Jane asks: “So, if you only bought the 3 Downys and used the $5/3 coupon, you will need to buy just 1 filler item (to be able to use the $5 Catalina) or will you need 2 filler items if you also use the 5000 points on that order? Thanks!”


  • From Outlander: “At Kohls, through today, is this fantastic deal on Nutribullet: Go to, put Nutribullet in your cart. It’s on sale for $89.99. Use HOMESALE10, for $10 off, use a code from your email that gives either $5, $10 or $15 off your purchase of $25 or more (my code was $10 off), use JULY15SHIP for free shipping (or it’s free shipping over $75), and use POOLSIDE for 25% off with your Kohl’s charge card (maybe you have 30% off?). Brings it down to $55.64 for me, including tax, and you still get $10 Kohl’s cash for being over $50, so that brings your total down to $45!!!! That is the best price I have ever seen, and I would definitely recommend it!!”


  • Krystle shares: “Awesome deal @ Target this week on Downy. Buy 4 @ $7.99 ea get a $10 Target gift card. Use $2/2 downy Mobile TQ, $2/2 downy printable TQ NLA (I think the same coupon was also in the home mailer if you were lucky enough to get one), $5/3 Mfg 7/27PG, and $1/1 Mfg 7/27PG. You will end up paying $2.99 each, that’s less than 3 cents per load if you buy the regular 120 load bottles. The downy infusions is also included but the bottles are only 96 loads. This trip helped me finish my PG MIR.”
  • Melinda posts on Facebook: “We were at the Lombard Target today and found Up&Up SPF30 (spray) on clearance for $3.00 each, reg price is $6.04


  • Yvette shares some news: “A heads up to Wal-Mart shoppers who like to price match. There may soon be no need to price match at the register if you’re a frequent Wal-Mart shopper. The company is rolling out a new app that will allow you to input your receipt information and will then automatically determine if you could have saved money shopping elsewhere. Any difference will be issued as a Wal-Mart gift card on your next visit. The program is in beta for employees only at this point but it’s working really well and is getting great reviews. I expect we may see it roll out at the end of the year. Couldn’t wait to share with MOM readers!”

  • Outlander found barbecue sauce: “Cheap filler on Amazon with 20 s&s and 25% off Q. And this one is delicious. I’m using it right now.”


  • John W shares: “Next week, Eli’s Cheesecake (6701 W. Forest Preserve Road in Chicago, near Montrose/Oak Park Ave.) celebrates Cheesecake Day with various free samples: July 30, free slice 9am-6pm; July 31, free samples 9am-3pm; Aug 1, free cheesecake buffet 3-5pm; Aug 2, free samples 9am-6pm. Complete schedule of events

Hot dogs

  • Debra emails: “Vienna beef store on north damen ave north of Fullerton in Chicago.   I bought bags for $10.  Good prices”
  • And Margie suggests: “100 hot dogs, GFS has good prices on all beef hot dogs. They are precooked so you are only heating and putting them in a bun. They also sell the foil sheets you can wrap them in. Use a coupon at GFS for $5 off 50 often in the newspaper if not find a friend with an entertainment coupon book. Buns aren’t cheap there, GO TO ALDI for buns. I know a restaurant owner who buys buns at Aldi its a trade secret I guess. Hope that’s helpful.”


  • A find from juli: “Gurnee Jewel has 8 oz pub burgers for $1.00. Thats 16 oz for $2.00!!!!! You can smush it up for any ground beef recipe…… Unless it is a misprint…Gurnee store only.”
  • A heads up from grandma g: “At Jewel today I bought 2 of the Keebler cookies, clearly marked on the shelf at $1.99 ea. After I checked out I checked my receipt and there was no “instant $1 savings” Went to the Service Desk and the woman there informed me that the “instant savings” was the reduction of $1 off each package, thus the $1.99 sale price, but there was no extra money off. What??? Leaves me speechless how the service people don’t understand their own ads and sales. I’ll just go back when someone else is there or ask for the manager I guess, but if the service desk doesn’t get it the manager probably won’t either. Maybe a different Jewel. Yet another reason why I rarely go to Jewel anymore:(“


  • Jane warns: “I tried to roll points months back on a toilet seat and ended up returning it because the points did not show up on the 2nd one I bought using points.  I do recall the time they had the Tide/Hanes deal, the Catalinas rolled just fine BUT it did not involve points that time. I would almost bet that this deal on the Downy will not roll but anyone that tries it please report back! Thanks.”


  • Rangerdave says: “7/27 through 8/2, all Meijer stores will take an additional 50% off clearance priced electronics. Televisions, tablets, and iPod are excluded from this promotion.”


  • From rifat: “YMMV Some Menard’s are a PIA on using more than 1 of the same coupon in a single purchase. You might have to do several transactions to do the ZEP deal.”

Online deals

  • From Carol S-T: “Bought these [New Balance shoes] a few weeks ago when they were on sale. Extremely comfortable! Unfortunately, the pink is very bright and the line pattern makes me feel like Spider-Man’s sister, so I only wear them on the treadmill at home.”

Reader requests

  • West is wondering about the pet beds: “Anybody purchase these before? I’m curious of the quality/thickness?”

  • Callie says: “I LOVE this flatiron!! I have had much much more expensive ones and this one blows them away! Also, its dual voltage so it works great when you are traveling overseas!”

Farmers’ Markets

  • From peaches: “For those people here in their 20′s Henry Brockman is having a “Junior Citizen” sale at the Evanston farmer’s market,. For people betweeb the ages of 20-29 everything is 25% off. Everything at Henry’s stand is certified organic. He is in the back row at the very end. Here is a link to what Henry is bringing to the market tomorrow. He is also doing a free garlic tasting from 2:30-3:30 at Boltwood Restaurant at 804 Davis in Evanston where Lulu’s used to be. You get to sample all eight variates of garlic Henry is growing this summer, including a spicy Korean garlic. Both of these events take place on 7/26.

Online deals

  • On the eBay sun dresses, Joy on Facebook warns: “I would beware of ordering from them – 2,057 negatives in the last 12 months alone :(

Reader requests

  • Jane is wondering: “I just got my Hormel Freebie at Kroger but they don’t carry the Celeste pizza anymore. Anyone ever see them at Jewel?”
  • Linda responds: “I just got a Celeste pizza at Jewel in Glen Ellyn on Roosevelt.  They had cheese and sausage flavors.I still get strange looks from the Jewel cashiers who say I don’t need to use my preferred card.  I tried to explain to my cashier today about my magical things that happen online when they scan it.  She didn’t get it, but was fine with scanning my card.  I usually just say “I get magical things online”, and they scan it with no problems.  ;)” I am so thankful my store has a self-checkout! And I also found the pizza at Jewel, but not at Meijer.
  • Valentina S. also found it: “Yes, got mine at Jewel at 7329 S Cass Ave, Darien, IL 60561. They have original and sausage varieties, $1.00 each.”
  • One from karen: “Any good deals on 80/20 ground beef this week? I need lots.”

Recipes, etc.

  • Angie shares: “Baked Parmesan Zucchini has become a favorite here this summer. 4 Zucchini, quartered length wise, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 2 tblsp olive oil. Preheat oven to 350 coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix cheese and herbs in a bowl/bag, brush zucchini with olive oil. Coat zucchini with cheese mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake until tender about 15 mins or until crisp and gold. I usually broil mine for the last 5 mins. Serve immediately.”
  • One from Fran: “This recipe is from I made it this past weekend (along with stuffed zucchini and grilled zucchini slices), and these are very good. The only thing I did different was after shredding the zucchini, I sprinkled it with salt and let it sit and drain for about 30 mins. This recipe looks to be very forgiving in that other veggies could be added based on whatever happens to be ripe in the garden at any given time Zucchini Patties
  • For your zucchini or any other use, Outlander says: “I saw somewhere that you should never buy a mandoline with a blade that’s straight across, and that the V blade is not that great either. They recommend angled blade. This is the one I have, just the older model (black and grey). It’s great.”
  • Heather posts on Facebook: “You can also shed and freeze for baking later. Just freeze in portions for your favorite muffin/bread. There will be a lot of liquid when it thaws. Just dump it all in. Haven’t had any luck freezing and cooking. Too rubbery. But baking works.


  • Valentina S. reports on Purell: “Thank you, Rachel. I got mine at Willowbrook Target, 12 oz priced $2.49 (50% more free, Refreshing Aloe).”


  • Lisa emails: “Just wanted to mention a deal I just stumbled upon. My son takes omeprazole everyday and we ran out. We usually buy it at sam’s but it was late so he just ran to walgreens to buy some. The 42 count walgreens brand is on sale this week buy one get one free ( 21.99) –nice enough BUT when he got home he had a catalina advertising a mail in rebate for $10. This offer is only through 7/26!! So after rebate we paid 11.99 for 84 pills.”

Whole Foods

  • Maureen found: “Whole Foods also has an online print $1/1 Organic Valley String Cheese to stack with the $1/1 Organic Valley MQ.”

Handy iPhone tripod just $4.98 shipped


I posted this a week ago at $5.83 shipped — it’s now down to $4.98 shipped! And worth every penny — I have been playing with it for food photos and it does make a huge difference… when I remember to actually use it…


Why yes — it is a picture of a phone taking a picture. Maybe tomorrow I’ll bring you a photo of infinite dog food cans… Anyway, back in April I posted and purchased this neat little flexible octopus style phone tripod, which at the time was $6.25 shipped but now is down to just $5.83! It came about a month later, and I put it away and forgot about it until today, when I pulled it out and finally tried it out with some photos.


This little tripod fits my iPhone 4s perfectly, so no problems there. You need to be a little careful adjusting the legs and make sure it’s stable before letting go so that it doesn’t tip over (no one wants to drop their iPhone), but otherwise it worked great and holds the phone a lot more steady taking photos than my apparently very shaky hands do.
