- Lisa shares: “I went to CVS in Frankfort today and they had the big bag of snack size M and M’s for $1.17. The coupon machine spits out a $1.00 on 2 and they had manufacturer peelie for $1/2. So, .17 cents a bag. They had A Ton of them so still time to pick up 2 bags if your in the area. The bags are in stacked cases right next to the Christmas candy that has the $1/2 peelies.”
- On the question of whether a Dyson is worth it, from rifat: “Our Kenmore died after many years, this year. We dot a Dyson, works great. We weren’t thinking and bought the model that does not have the auto-rewind for the electric cord, that is my only complaint. Enjoy!” Yesterday’s deal is over, but here’s a new Walmart deal for today.
- John W shares an event — and has a question: “I have a question and a free event to promote: it’s the Chicago Book Expo (chicagobookexpo.org), Sat. Nov. 21, 11am-5pm at 1104 S. Wabash, free admission, over 100 exhibitors selling books, a book drive and used book sale by Open Books, and 19 programs about everything including food (Hot Doug and Ina Pinkney), architecture, historical mysteries, horror, great Chicago literature, poetry, music & fiction, writing workshops and much more. If you’re going downtown for the Mag Mile parade, it’s a great place to go first (one block from CTA Roosevelt stop, see the website for ways to get free parking). My question is, we’re providing free refreshments at the event, and I wanted to know some cheap places to get food. Marketplace on Oakton has good deals on clementines ($5/5 lb) and apples (39 cents/lb), Trader Joes has bananas, Aldi has OJ and snacks. Any ideas for cheap cookies/snacks, as well as the best cheap party trays? Jewel and Trader Joes are nearby, and I can also shop around Skokie/Evanston.”
- Joanne asks: “I have to ask for a little bit more help on the $10.99 Penfolds wine at Jewel – I live in Tinley Park (south suburbs) – does anyone know if any of the Jewels out this way carry it – and if so, which ones? I was out again today – there were two shiraz – bin 28 and bin 128 – both scanned at $19.99 – so if you could please tell me the bin#, the upc#, etc I’d really appreciate it. TIA”
- And Tian is wondering: “Does anyone know of any Smirnoff coupons? I see a rebate and possible a Smirnoff deal.”
- From rifat: “I did the wine deal at two different stores, it worked automatically. 2 comments: Have $10 of groceries scanned before scanning the wine, otherwise it starts subtracting from each item and my BOGO deal only subtracted 1//2 of the free item. Look at you receipt, as many of you commented on. My guess is that it can’t do multiple discounts properly. I did these on Monday, in stores that did not have the hangtags.”
- And from SmartShopper: “Went to Jewel last night. I was able to price match the Turkey to the Ultra ad price. Excellent final price of $4.17 for a 14+ lb turkey! Concerning the the Penfolds wine, the Palatine store (Hicks and Dundee Road) had both the Penfolds and Pepperjack wine (I believe it was in the import section). Penfolds Shiraz is $10.99. The Pepperjack is $23.99 ???, or close that. I did not see any hang tags. I purchased the $10.99 Shiraz. The $10 did not come off. I had to pull up the pic of the hang tag (Located in Reader Deals from several days ago), speak the the Jewel Customer Service Manager and Osco Manager to FINALLY get an “ok” to refund my credit card $10 since the instant credit did not come off my grocery bill (which was over $50). They had no idea about the promotion or paperwork detailing the promotion.”
- A reminder from jane: “Don’t forget the in-ad coupon to “Receive a $10 gift card with purchase of $50 or more of food and beverages (or text FOOD to 827438).” This is a threshold coupon, so I was able to get about $51 worth of groceries for net $31, after coupons and the $10 g.c.”
