- From SPORTNFOOD: “Aldi had 8 oz. bricks of cream cheese for $0.89.”
- From seachicago: “Dollar Tree has 5lb. bags of flour (I’ve never heard of the brand, but it’s made in Kansas). I don’t remember seeing such large bags of flour there before, so maybe it’s just for the holidays. Pretty good deal, though—I stock up and just pop it in the freezer to store.” I’ve seen these at mine, too!
- John W. shares: “The Chicago Book Expo on Sun. Nov. 13, noon-5pm at Columbia College, 1104 S.

- From jane: “Also included in B6S$3: Celestial Seasonings tea is $1.89/box, use $1/2 coupon (11/6 SS) and look for boxes that say “coupon inside,” for another $1/2 coupon to use next time. Fleishman’s yeast is $.99, use $.75/1 expired (9/11 S2) or $.40/1 (11/6 SS).”
- If you lost a coupon wallet at Meijer, check customer service. Rebecca emails: “I was in the Evergreen Park Meijer a few days ago and found a coupon binder in the cart. I gave it to the lady at the service desk. It was a tiny accordion wallet.”
- From feelgood: “Menards has 16 oz Nutty Naturals brand shelled or chopped walnuts $2.99 each this Friday to Sunday only.”
- From seachicago: “Sally Beauty: I bought something there today and got a $5 q for a $5 minimum purchase made from Dec. 1-18—so that will make for a nice freebie/stocking stuffer. I was surprised to see the coupon in my bag, so I looked online and it says you receive the coupon with a minimum $20 purchase. My purchase was only about $6, so YMMV.”
- Maria S. shares: “Check your 7-11 app. I had two free offers redeemable today only. I have an offer for one free single pack of Stride gum 14ct. I also have an offer for one free Mutant Super Soda (Original or Red Dawn) -the soda offer is only good until 7pm. Both offers say limited quantities available.”
- Emily asks: “I’m cooking my first turkey this year (second Christmas we’ve been married)! I bought a Nature’s Rancher turkey from Whole Foods for about $10.50. Anyone cook a Nature’s Rancher last year? I’m wondering if I should pre-emptively purchase a second for Christmas. Has anyone had an experience with this brand? Are they good turkeys?”
- Lori asks: “Anyone have a preference on brands?”
- Christian replies: “That’s a good question… a culinarian would probably call for a brand of fresh, free-range bird, but then you’re talking $$$. If you’re simply roasting, brining is highly recommended. In my case, I will buy the cheapest “boyd” and probably follow a recipe similar to this: http://www.foodnetwork.com/recipes/alton-brown/good-eats-roast-turkey-recipe.html Note: Butterballs seem to be the more expensive of the national brands. They are already pre-brined, but you can brine them as well…”
- Liz points out on the turkey deals roundup: “Adding this here (I know you have it on the Jewel write-up page). From the Jewel ad: We will match the price on our Frozen Jennie-O Turkeys Frozen Grade A to the lowest advertised Frozen Turkey price offered by ANY competitor.

Jewel-Osco will match any competitor with valid ad or proof of competitor Thanksgiving Turkey Program including price, minimum purchase requirements and restrictions. Limit 1 Turkey per customer per transaction.”
- From Jane: “My Walmart has all gallons of store brand milk for $1.28! I got it this morning at the Bradley Walmart and then submitted to Ibotta for another 25c off, making it just over a buck for a gallon net!”
