Auto Show

  • Charlotte sent this,”if you’re looking to go to the Auto show, check with your local Chevy dealer for free tickets. In the past I’ve had to fill out forms to get the tickets, but this year they just gave them to me. Keep in mind that parking is $14-22.”

Dunkin Donut

  • Swimpg commented on the Dunkin Donut DDperks Free Coffee, “$5 Bonus offer until 2/6. Use Dunkin Mobile App from Google Play or iTunes and – register a gift card – or purchase a DD gift card on the app for $2 or more and use promo code BONUS”

Home Depot

  • Charlotte, “The Home Depot in Bolingbrook had (up to) 75% off pet food today. I saw large (30-40lbs?) bags of Pedegree Pal for $8/bag.”

Jewel

  • Diane asks a question about the Free Mama Lucia Meatballs, “Am I looking in the wrong place?  I went to the Westmont Jewel because I had a lot of coupons from that week and they were marked $3.99.  I was looking in the frozzen food meat aisle.”
  • Kay replies, “They are in the case along the back wall”
  • Caroline sent some information, “The (old Jewel) cards still generate Catalinas, tho. I scanned my card, got a “welcome MyMaxx user” and 3-4 Cats”

Meijer

  • Liz reports on a Wonderful Pistachio deal,”Meijer has 16 oz on sale for 5.99, its a 2 day sale plus 5% off on mperks..I think I will run over there  ty for the heads up! I called around wanted to get some quick before snap runs out”

Online Shopping

  • Brandy comments on the Crocs deals, “I just bought two pairs (black and brown) and really like them… but I’m a size 8 (in ALL shoes), but had to take these back and get a size 7. No 1/2 sizes. It’s $7.50 to ship back (buyer pays return shipping) for exchange or return, but you can exchange or return free at any Crocs store (not retailer, STORE). There’s one at the Aurora outlets, so I exchanged there and was able to try on. Good return and exchange policy and I like that these clean easily, will last forever and look cute with dressier clothes.”
  • Focadima also has a comment, “I bought these flats at 6pm before Christmas– I am a 6.5 so i ordered a 7 wayyyyy too big. So I gave them to dd and bought myself a 6- a bit too small :( BUT I am wearing them  and they are stretching more each time.very comfy and keep my foot warm even without socks”

Restaurants

  • VB reports, “Not sure if you posted about this… It is restaurant week!!!  I have never heard of this so I am so excited about this.  You can get Lunch (most are 3 courses) for $22 and dinner for $33 or $44 at some fancy schmancy (well at least to me they are) restaurants.  It goes from 1/30 to 2/12 (maybe plan an early Valentine’s dinner to beat the crowds and get a good deal!). Has anyone done this? How was it?  It says to call and reserve so I am wondering if the restaurants limit the number of reservations for this deal.”
  • Peaches comments, “I have never done restaurant week, but I have heard that you can get some really good deals on lunch at high end restaurants that you would not be able to afford any other time.  You can purchase a lunch for $25, at a restaurant that would cost you $150 to purchase a dinner any other week.  As far as I know they do not limit the number of reservations they make during restaurant week.  Probably 90% of the restaurants are in Chicago though.  There are only 11 restaurants in the whole Northern suburbs participating in restaurant week, with four of them being in Evanston”

Groupon

  • Raegan sent suggestion on there’s a Groupon for that, “Might I suggest a facial? Especially if the kids are swimming in Lake Geneva, take a 20 minute drive to RED’s Skincare, there’s a Groupon for that!”

Heads Up

  • Julie sent this, “A heads up to anyone who stocked up on Quaker Instant Oatmeal last October at Jewel when they had the big Quaker sale with the $1/2 tearpads out.  My hubby opened a new box of Apples and Cinnamon and found weird black/brown moldy stuff at the top of most of the pouches near where they are glued shut.  The date code on the box was JUN 07 15 L2 45.  You can see the weird stuff up in the top of the pouch even without opening them.  If you have any boxes with this date code, I would recommend contacting Quaker.  My husband posted a photo to their wall when he contacted them in case anyone has this date code but isn’t sure what to look for.  We have some other boxes with different codes and they don’t seem to be affected.”

Jewel

  • John W. has a comment on the weekly deals, “Pringles aren’t $2 after the buy 8 deal, they are $1. So, you could buy 8 pringles, buy 4 7-Up, get 2 Orville free. Use 2 $1/3 pringles, use 2 $1.50 off coupons, use $1/2 Orville and pay $5.96 for 14 items, or about 42 cents each. Or buy 2 pringles for $1.50 each, 4 7-Up, 2 Orville, use 2 $1.50 coupons, $1/2 Orville, and pay $2.96 for 8 items, or 37 cents each.”

Mariano’s

  • Soapboxtray sent a use for the New Morningstar Farms coupon catalina deal, “I used the coupons today at Mariano’s they usually have the same cat deals but I didn’t get anything. Coupons doubled though so I ended up paying approx 1.19-1.58 a box after doubles.”

Meijer

  • Liz found these deals, “at the Niles Meijer, stove top turkey flavor stuffing is 1.25 with a 1.00 off 1 mperk coupon for .25 stuffing, there is also a 1.00 off 1 mperk for dole dippers and they have chocolate almond on clearance for 1.99 making them .99,  They also have on clearance jalapeno poppers(frozen case on end) normally 10.99 on clearance for 5.49 by Farm Rich 38 oz….I had a 1.50 coupon from a recent insert”

Reader Requests

  • Couponnurse has a question on the Canon Laser Printer,”Can this take a remanufactured cartridge/ink?  I have a Canon Pixma Printer that only takes Original Canon Ink and it gets quite expensive in the long run. Can anyone suggest of a good printer that takes remanufactured cartridge/Ink? Thanks.”

Plus some clothes for me and a few things for the hubby. Paid less than $40 and walked out with 4 bags full. The savings almost makes up for the depressing nature of a store closing…. Almost. :'( “
