Top CVS deals week of 4/20/14

  • Sparkle paper towels 8 pk., Quilted Northern Ultra Plush 9 pk. or Angel Soft bathroom tissue 12 pk, 3/$15.00 get $5.00 ECB limit 1. $1.00/1 Sparkle in the 3/23 RP. $.45/1 Angel Soft in the 3/23 RP (exp. 3/23). So if you buy three Sparkle for $15.00 and use three $1.00/1 coupons, pay $12 with $5 back for a net cost of $7 for three 8 packs, or $.29 per roll.
  • Donut House, Green Mountain or Eight O’Clock K-Cups 12 ct., $5.99. Use the regional $1.50/1 in the 3/30 SS to get them for $4.49, or $.37 per K-Cup.
  • Hormel Compleats, $2.00. Print $1.00/1 here and get them for $1.00.
  • Dean’s gallon milk, $2.99 get $1.00 ECB limit 2. Milk brands and deals will vary by region, so check your local ad. Get $.50 back from Ibotta through 4/20.
  • Spend $10 on Almay cosmetics get $3.00 ECB limit 1. Use $4.00/1 in the 4/13 SS2. No prices in ad, so these are online estimates: Buy two eyeshadow softies at $4.99 each (will trigger ECB). Use two $4.00/1 in the 4/13 SS2. Pay $1.98 with $3.00 back for a $1.02 money maker. Or, buy three for $14.97. Use $3.00/$15 cosmetics from the magic machine and three $4.00/1 manufacturer coupons. Pay… nothing and get back $3.00 ECB for an even larger money maker! Note — the $3/$15 will likely scan but if you are uncomfortable or your store is with it being just short, buy four for $19.96. Use four $4.00/1 and the $3.00/$15. Pay $.96 with $3.00 back and it is still a money maker.
  • Speed Stick Gear deodorant, 2/$8.00 get $3.00 ECB limit 1. Use $1.50/1 in the 4/6 SS or print $2.00/1 here. So buy two for $8.00, use two $2.00/1 printables = $4.00, get $3.00 ECB for a net cost of $1.00 for two, or just $.50 each!
  • Buy Oral-B, Crest, Fixodent, Glide, or Scope to Go multipacks get $3 ECB limit 2. Check your 3/9 RP1, 3/30 PG, Coupons.com. Online, Scope to Go 4 packs are priced $2.49. If they are that price in your store, it will be a small money maker even with no coupons.

More birthday shopping

cvs-416

So while I abandoned you guys for several hours to do birthday shopping, where else did I go besides Target? All down Roosevelt Road, that’s where!

CVS

2 John Frieda hair color, $24.00. Used two $1.50/1 coupons that they emailed for my birthday. (Sign up for “clubs” for everything you like to buy, guys — you never know what they will send…)
Dean’s milk, $2.99. Got back $1.00 from Ibotta — $.50 for milk and $.50 for the milk+2 bonus.

Paid with $16 ECB and $9.96. Got back $11 in ECB ($10 John Frieda and $1 milk) for a net cost of $14.96, plus the $1.00 back from Ibotta = net $13.96.

Pete’s Market

petes416

Broccoli, $1.04.
Sourdough bread, $3.29.
Meat ends, $1.96.

Paid $6.40 and got back $.25 from Checkout 51 for broccoli for a net cost of $6.15.

Goodwill

goodwill416

Goodwill mailed me a 25% off postcard for my birthday, and they’re right next to Ultra Foods… I got four kid’s books, a t-shirt, and a pair of capris. They were super crowded and kind of picked over, but it’s always hit or miss there!

I also wanted to go to Kohl’s since they sent me a $10/$10 birthday coupon, but ran out of time, lol.

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

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • Outlander is wondering about the Coffee-Mate: “Isn’t that the same size that’s in Dollar Tree for $1?”
  • Nora says: “The ones on amazon are 11 ounce; the ones at Dollar Tree are 6 ounce. So, amazon’s price isn’t bad (but it isn’t great, either).” Dollar Tree would be 16.7 cents an ounce, Amazon 15 cents an ounce on the 5% tier, cheaper if you are on the 15-20% off tier.

CVS

  • Allison posts on Facebook: “Found this at CVS in Bloomingdale”
    antacid chews

Target

  • Shandelle shares: “if you use the Jingit app, I noticed $.60 back on strawberries there for Target. I just got this app a week ago so no experience yet redeeming their offers.”
  • Mary on Facebook reports: “Shopped at Target today and was sad that I didn’t have a $10 coupon off a $50 purchase that atleast 4 employees told me about. I was so tempted to leave my cart at the service desk and run out to the Dollar store to get an Early edition of the Sunday paper , so I could get a coupon. I don’t have a smart phone and am unable to get the mobile coupons. I decided to go to customer service and ask if they could give me the $10 off coupon when I check out. I was told “Yes” and just have the cashier call the supervisor over to approve. The supervisor also informed me that if I know of certain mobile coupons I wanted to use, just to let them know and they would take the coupon price off my purchase. :)”

Here are the best CVS deals and coupon matchups I see for the week of 4/13/14.

Top CVS deals week of 4/13/14

  • 4×6 photo book, $4.99 get $4.99 ECB limit 1.
  • On the spend $20 get $5 ECB P&G deal: Buy two 16 pack double roll Charmin for $19.98 (will trigger) and use two $1.00/1 printables = $17.98. Get back $5.00 ECB for a net cost of $12.98, or about $.20 per single roll equivalent.
  • Dean’s milk, $2.99 get $1.00 ECB limit 2. (Milk deals and brands will vary by region, so check your local ad if you are outside of Chicagoland.) Sunday only, get $.50 back from Ibotta.
  • Almay color & care liquid lip balm or eye makeup remover, $5.99 get $1.99 ECB limit 1. Use $4.00/1 Almay in the 4/13 SS2 to get it free after coupon + ECB.
  • Ban Total Refresh cloths 10 ct, $3.39. Use the FREE coupon in the 4/13 SS1 to get them free. Also look for try me free rebate stickers — I’m not sure if the coupon will affect the rebate, though.
  • On the spend $25 get $10 ECB Schick deal: No prices in the ad, but online a four pack of men’s Quattro cartridges runs $13.79 and a Quattro for men titanium razor runs $10.99. Assuming around that price in store, buy one of each for $24.78 (which should trigger since it’s over 98% of $25) and use free razor with cartridge purchase in the 3/23 SS. Pay $13.79 with $10 ECB back for a net cost of $3.79 for both.
  • Colgate Max 6 oz, Total 4-4.2 oz, 2-in-1 4.6 oz, or Optic White 4 oz, $3.00. Use $.50/1 in the 4/13 SS1. Ad says free with magic machine + manufacturer coupon, so I guess it will be a $2.50 coupon?

Reader deals 4/9/14

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

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • Nikki shares: “I received these bowls as a gift a few years ago-I LOVE them! (I AM a big fan of Pyrex stuff in general, though!) Before I met my hubby, someone had also given him the same set-lucky me! LOL”

Books & music

  • If you are going to buy SC Johnson cleaning products, checkout this free iTunes offer feelgood found.
  • He also found: “Big Jewish Music Box – over 8 hours of music celebrating Hebrew, Yiddish and Jewish culture for only $0.99″
  • A tip from Bunny: “Most likely your library has free ebooks. You will have to download am free app like 3M to read it.”

CVS

  • From Outlander: “Check your CVS for select liquor on clearance 50% off. They had some champagne, some maple flavored Crown Royal and small bottles (375ml) of Grand Marnier. Grand Marnier was $19 reg. price, so $9.50 with 50% off.”

Gas

  • Tamara comments: “Another gas saving opportunity is the Shell Saver Card and FRN Rewards. When I used the Shell Saver Card, it automatically linked to my debit card and saved me .02/gallon. I’ve never really used the FRN except when it linked to a Mycokerewards to save me .20/gallon or something awesome. Anyway, I got an e-mail the other day that Wednesday only I could save .22/gallon with my card – pretty nice! You can check the program out at fuelrewards.com.”

Gift cards

  • A heads up from Andi for those interested in Raise discounted cards: “If you are planning a trip, be aware that Southwest limits the number of payment methods per order to 4. So, you can use up to 4 gift cards. However, if the 4 gift cards are still not enough to cover your total cost, you actually can only use 3 gift cards and then a credit card to cover the rest. You could instead do separate orders for each ticket, but that would be more difficult.”

Jewel

  • Tamara noticed: “Shopmium has $.50 off Fage greek yogurt, any variety, so I think it should be good on this.”

Reader requests

  • ElizabethF asks: “Has anyone else been able to get Hopster coupons to print from Safari? Is there a magic trick?”

Target

  • Doree reports: “Skylanders deal worked at Arlington Heights Target today. $37.49 Skylanders swap force Wii (price matched Toys R Us) plus $10 coupon (McDonalds), plus 5% Red Card”

Ultra Foods

  • Krystle says: “The Greek version of Breakstone’s sour cream is included in the Kraft deal/sale. So check your expired stash for a $1/1 printable from coupons.com (my digital border says I printed it on 3/19/2014 HTH), you will end up paying $0.38 per 16 oz container.”

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

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • Kari O. shares: “I love zombies and like any girl I also love the Pride & Prejudice story. I highly recommend Pride and Prejudice and Zombies! So great and worth every penny.”

CVS

  • Shandelle comments: “I’m not entirely sure why milk is excluded from % off coupons but I think it may be considered a “vendor product” similar to soda, which is delivered directly from a distributer or manufacturer. Do % off apply to soda? Those external supplied products may be exempt. I know % also will not apply to bags of ice, cause I tried once a few months ago.. again, could be a vendor product. Not everything else brought in on a CVS/Walgreens/whatever store truck. Just a thought.”

Eyewear

  • Wende asks: “Has anyone purchased glasses from For Eyes?  I’m in need of a pair. Thanks ( :”
  • Samantha says: “Up until the Groupon 2 years ago for Pearle Vision, I only bought from For Eyes. Always had a good experience there, and I’ll go back. I still go there for my exams, but my RX has not changed in the last 2 years, but I would absolutely recommend For Eyes. Have you gotten your free pair from Coastal? All you need there is your prescription, and you pay the shipping.”

Groupon

  • A reminder and some information from Jennifer: “If anyone still has the Coldwater Creek Groupon that was available in December, heads up– it is expiring soon. It can be used on sales, but note that the Groupon comes off first, then any extra discount.  I went to Coldwater Creek at Cherryvale Mall (Rockford, IL).  This weekend they were running BOGO 50% on regular priced items storewide.  Also they were running some additional % off on clearance.  I found two pairs of petite jeans, regularly $70, on clearance for $50, with additional 50%.  After all discounts (first the $50 groupon came off, then 50% off remainder) my bill was $27 including tax.  The clerk then told me that I was pre-approved for their credit card… which would give me an immediate $25 off.  I usually DON’T do this, but ran the deal and owed NOTHING.  I paid only the original $25 for my Groupon and I will cancel the card if there is fee.  I also asked about them closing, as I had heard on the news that a buyer for the company was not found; the manage told me that the company is restructuring.”

Jewel

  • From erin: “Jewel in dekalb had Seattle’s Best K-cups on close out in back of store for $3.99. Minus the $1.50 mq from paper (last week?) made for cheap K-cups.Bought the last two, but check other stores!”
  • From Ashley: “Jewel Osco has McCormick recipe card spice/herb kits on sale for $0.79 each. Use the $0.75/1 coupon from this Sundays paper to get them for just $0.04!”

Reader requests

  • Stacy posts in Hot Deals: “anyone know who has girls softball gloves on sale? Looking for a size 11-11 1/2……………..”

Target

  • For the cheap Jenga, Outlander says: “Or use $3/1 from 4/6 SS.”
  • And she reports: “I went today to check it out. Had 3 insert Qs and 1 IP to get 4. They had a bunch on the end cap ( there is 6 different characters), not with the other games or the card versions. Used 4 Qs and cartwheel no problem. Cartwheel took off $1.50. Paid $1.46 for 4, minus 5 cents for my bag = $1.41 or about 35 cents each!! Thank you!! And luckily they finally had Windex Touch Ups Bathroom in stock, so got 4 at $3.39 each= $18.56- 2 BOGO took $3.99 each off – $1 mobile Q- new Cartwheel on Windex $0.63- $2/3 Target IP= $1.95! And got $5 Target GC back and submitted to Checkout 51 for $1, so it’s a money maker $4.05!!!!”
  • Jennifer confirms: “Did the Applebee’s card deal at Target this morning.  Works on both the $25 and the $50 cards.  I bought 4 $25 cards, received two $10 Target gift cards in return AND got a few bucks off for using my Target Redcard.”

USAA

  • Matt emails: “I recently became a USAA member because someone in our family was a military member. If you have a military member in the family you can get it and they have a lot of discounts on insurance and there are all sorts of other perks. Anyone who is eligible who doesn’t have it is definitely missing out.”

Zulily

  • Jen sends over: “I was just browsing through Zulily and noticed they have a deal for a year’s membership on Urban Sitter for only $35. Normally it’s $10/month I think. They’re in a handful of cities, one of which is Chicago, and the site helps you find baby sitters. At least in Chicago, there’s a lot of choices and great search options. We used the site when it was new and free and liked it a lot, but then they started charging and it didn’t seem worthwhile any more. I snapped up this deal though because we’re back in the market for a sitter. Just thought I’d share as this is a pretty big discount.”

Amazon

  • Outlander comments: “I just saw that movie based on that book Austenland. I love anything Jane Austen, and that movie is very cute!”
  • A warning from Tamara: “I got this [helicopter] for my niece and another girl for Christmas last year and thought it would be so cool. It worked well for about 10 minutes and then would never charge back up again! According to the reviews, sometimes counterfeits are sold and I think that’s what I had gotten. :(“

CVS

  • Krystle shares a scenario and a find: “If you do happen to find the Venus blue razor and have the $3/10 razors, shaving cream etc CRT. Your deal should look like this, 1 Venus(7.49) I edge shave (3.49) = $10.98 minus the $3/10 CRT, $4 Venus mfg. Pay $3.98(before tax), earn a $5 ECB and a $2 ECB for the edge shave gel, ends up $3.02 MM(before tax). Also check your stores for clearanced Allegra Itch cream, original price $7.99 on clearance for $1.99. But totally FREE after $2/1 mfg printable from Allegra’s website. Found 2 @ the CVS on North Ave in Lombard. Sorry I bought what they had left, but make sure to price check as they were not marked on clearance at my store.”

Jewel

  • Chris shares: “Finally got around to getting my Lavazza coffee – found it at the Jewel (used to be Dominicks) in Homer Glen for $6.99. Used the $2 from3/30S got the Checkout 51 $2.50 and the Shopmium $1.50 so $.99 coffee.”

Mariano’s

  • Beth reports: “Vernon Hills Mariano’s has gallon-sized Roundy’s organic milk on sale for $4.50 through April 11 (regular price is $4.99). I also noticed several items marked with ‘new, lower price,’ though the only thing I remember is the 6-pack 12-oz Gatorade. It’s now $3.49 (used to be $3.79).”

Sam’s Club

  • Francesca on Facebook found: “Large Nutella jars $3 at Sams Club in Tinley”

Target

  • Maureen confirms: “Not sure it this was already clarified, but the Bare Naked Granola that is 50% on Cartwheel does work with the Checkout 51 offer.” It is in their picture, so that is nice!

Ultra Foods

  • From lori: “Ultra in Kankakee has Sara Lee snack cakes 3/5.00, there is a 1.00 coupon in 2/23/ SS”
  • On that Sara Lee coupon, Jane says: “I got it in my Tribune and my local paper that week. I am in Kankakee though….is that why I got it in my Trib? I see the coupon, I just didn’t see the sale in the flier on the Sara Lees for 3/$5!”

cvs4614

Stopped by CVS this morning and found that the single Venus razors formerly known as $6.99 at my store are now up to $7.49. Did they price jump at yours, too? Also, a reminder that the % off coupons never work on milk; I don’t know why.

Dean’s milk, $2.99.
Venus razor, $7.49. Used $4.00/1 in the 3/30 PG.
Sun-Maid raisins, $1.99. Used the $2.00/1 coupon that was up on Facebook last month, which she adjusted down to $1.99. (They now have a $1.00/1 coupon up for doing their pledge thing so you can get these for $.99 — it won’t show up if you already got the $2 one.)

Used a 20% off coupon that came in the mail, which took off $1.48. Paid with $5.00 ECB and $.63 in tax. Got back $5.00 ECB for the Venus razor, and will get back $1.00 from Ibotta ($.50 for milk and $.50 for the milk+2 bonus, since I redeemed two other offers this week). Net cost: I made $.37. :)
