Jewel, CVS, and everyone is competition shopping


I was out all morning ferrying a kid to a dr. appointment, then stopped by CVS and Jewel after dropping him off safely at school since I was out anyway…


Six Wright sausage rolls, $15.00. Used three BOGO from the 3/30 SS and three $1.00/1 printables (no longer available).
2 Fresh Express spinach, $2.00. Used $1.00/2 printable from the Fresh Express salad swap.
Two 22 oz bowls watermelon, BOGO at $3.49.

Paid $9.35. Remember how I said it was just produce and milk this week unless a really great grocery deal popped up? The $.75 sausage rolls qualified. :)



Then I went to CVS for the milk part of this expedition — where, as so often happens, it was cheaper to buy all this stuff than to walk in and just buy a gallon of milk. So here’s the thing. We always hear about grocery store competition in the Chicago market, but I think it’s important to look more broadly at drugstores, dollar stores, and more. Did I want to stop at another store today after Jewel? Not so much. But, buying a gallon of store brand milk at Jewel while I was there anyway would have cost me straight up $2.57 + tax. Running into CVS on the way home got me name brand milk + several other things for literally half the price of the gallon of generic milk at Jewel.

Multiply that by the number of the people who might run into Jewel for just that gallon of milk and end up picking up other things while they are there (the milk being in the back of the store for a reason!)  — but instead are running into CVS or Walgreens to get name brand milk at the same price or better. No, it’s not just milk, but milk is a prime example of what I mean here.

Anyway… here’s what I bought.

Dean’s milk, $2.99.
4 Almay eyeshadow softies, $19.96. Used $3.00/$15.00 makeup from the magic machine and four $4.00/1 from the 4/13 SS.
2 Scope to Go, $4.98.
popchips, $2.00. Used $.55/1 printable.

Paid with $10 ECB and $2.28. Got back $10.00 ECB ($1.00 milk, $3.00 Almay, $6.00 Scope) to bring that down to net $2.28. Will get back another $1.00 from Ibotta ($.50 milk, $.50 popchips) for a net cost of $1.28 for the lot.

Jewel deals week of 4/23/14 – 4/29/14


Here are the best Jewel deals and coupon matchups I see at Jewel-Osco for the week of 4/23/14. If your paper ads don’t come until the Wed. Tribune, you can sneak peek the Wed. ad on Tuesdays, here.

  • Note that the alcohol deals are sometimes different in Indiana stores, and that pricing may vary between stores. I am using the Lombard, IL ad for this matchup.

Confused by abbreviations in this post? See lingo for newbies.

Top deals

  • 9 oz fruit cup: Watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, mixed melon, pineapple, $1.00. Note that at Jewel, 9 oz here refers to the cup size, not the actual weight of the fruit — it’s all the same size cup no matter what kind of fruit or how heavy it is.

  • Angel Soft bath tissue 12 ct double or 24 ct regular roll or Sparkle paper towels 6 ct big or 8 ct regular rolls, 2/$9.00 must buy one of each. Use $1.00/1 Sparkle printable here or $1.00/1 in the 3/23 RP and $.45/1 Angel Soft in the 3/23 RP. That gets you the paper towels for $3.50, or $.58 a roll, and the TP for $4.05, or $.17 a roll.

Reader deals 4/22/14

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.


  • Zack posts in Hot Deals about the pinch guards: “We got these a while back! They are pretty cook and useful for under two bucks!”
  • And if you want to be terrified into buying them, Kari O. shares: “I’m buying these. My sister in law got her pinky chopped off earlier this year from a rogue door, so for $1.67 I can be a little less paranoid about my kiddos near doors. Thanks!” That is horrible!

Bridal gowns

  • Suzann says: “For bridal check the most upscale consignment shops in your area- that’s how I got rid of mine. Next marriage ceremony was at the courthouse—LOL. I am one of the readers in Houston so my consignment shop will not work for you looking for a bridal gown but try the upscale consignment stores in your area perhaps even phoning ahead so you don’t waste gasoline. This used to be a decent resource but I do not know what it has evolved into–David’s Bridal.”
  • Beth suggests: “Wedding Belles in Barrington sells sample dresses and on consignment. I paid about $400 for my dress there in 2005. Wouldn’t know what the prices are like these days, but I had a great experience there when I was a bride.”
  • Joanne’s advice: “For the person looking for wedding dresses – there is a little thrift store in Tinley Park – called NU2U – 170th Oak Park Avenue – every so often they get a donation from bridal salons of the sample dresses – they don’t have much left now(a couple of racks – a few months ago they had so many dresses, they held a special sale at t different location) – but they are only $15 – the fabric and ornamentation on the dresses is worth more than that. I think its worth a trip – you can ask when they’ll get the next shipment in(if they know they also had bridesmaid, mother of the bride, etc.”
  • An idea from theresa: “Bridal shop in west dundee having one day sample sale I think it is April 26th. Give them a call. saw sign as I drove through town but not really looking for that.”
  • A tip from Jamie: “Check craigslist and Facebook groups. There are also wedding blogs- I don’t remember the name but it was only 5 years ago but I had posted my dress. It never sold but it was kind of expensive.”
  • An idea from ellen: “try the Goodwill in Lincoln Park in chicago. My daughter shops there for designer clothes.”
  • Another from kelly: “I was just at Stratford Square Mall in Bloomingdale. There’s a store there called Total Wedding. I noticed they were having 50% off on wedding dresses. Looked like a pretty good selection. The store is on the upper level across from JC Penney.”


  • Jill warns: “I used to buy the groupon to King Spa a lot, but most recently I have found the place to be crazy busy and far from zen. I don’t think it is even worth $10 with the amount of folks packed into the place!”


  • Kari O. found Popchips: “I just bought these on clearance yesterday at Jewel! They were $1.50 in Spring Grove. Woo, looks like I’ll be post redeeming. :)”

Krispy Kreme

Reader requests

  • One from jane: “Does anyone have any free classes on Windows 8/8.1 to recommend? Staples offers classes, but I’m not sure if there is a cost.” One place to check is your local library; they often offer free basic computer classes.

Ultra Foods

  • Lori S. reports: “Ultra in Downers Grove doesn’t even sell Aloha Morning Hawaiian Punch, looked for it the other day.”
  • But linda found it: “the ultra in Kankakee has the aloha morning and is part of the sale I purchased 3 for 88 cents each and my kids love it.”

$.75 Wright sausage at Jewel starts Wednesday


Starting Wed. 4/23 at Jewel, Wright breakfast sausage will be on sale 2/$5.00! Use the BOGO coupon in the 3/30 SS and the $1.00/1 Wright brand breakfast sausage here (ZIP 77477 then reload). Out of prints :( — if you missed it, it’s just $1.25 each after the BOGO coupon, though. That gets you two for $1.50 after both coupons, or just $.75 each.

Note: I know some of you have had trouble with this at Jewel, but it is specifically allowed in their policy: “A cents off coupon may be used with a B1G1Free coupon, redeemable on the purchased item.”

  • Mike says: “$2/1 CVS diapers on the link that takes you to the page.”
  • A report from feelgood: “Just got from CVS. 4-pk Scope TO GO is regular priced at $2.57, with a $3.00 ECB, Limit 2. Bought 2, paid $5.14, got a $6.00 ECB.
    $0.86 MM.”
    cvs scope togo

Internet service

  • From feelgood: “looking for cheaper internet service, you may want to look into this offer on Groupon. You can get up to 500 mb a month free, or 2 gb for $17.99. Don’t get the stick, it’s only for one device…the Photon is a hotspot and several devices can sign on at the same time. Uses 4G Sprint. Lots of mixed reviews on freedompop, though.”


  • Kari O. shares: “I found after Easter Fresh Turkey and Turkey Breasts for 99¢/lb at two different Jewel-Osco’s today. Not a bad price since there’s no minimum purchase and it’s not Thanksgiving. We got 2 for the freezer. I’m also searching for clearanced Easter hams too. Has anyone seen any markdowns on those?”

Mobile phone plans

  • April shares: “For a cell phone plan I use Family Mobile from Walmart. It’s based on Tmobile network . $45 per month includes unlimited talk and text + 5 gb Internet access. I think you can add additional lines for $10-15. The draw back that you can’t recieve any of text massages from Target with coupons”


  • A tip from Matt: “When you go to the resale shop look for ink that matches your printer. Every once in a while I find expensive ink for under $5. Sometimes the outer box is damaged and the ink is sealed inside.”

Reader requests

  • An Ultra Foods question from Jeff: “Does anyone know if the aloha Hawaaian punch is included in the sale to use the 1.00 off coupon tia”
  • From benita: “I am looking for a wedding dress for a friend. Last year house of hope in arlington heights has a may bridal sale, but they are no longer running the sale. Goodwill and the Salavation Army is a hit or miss. Does anyone know of sample sales, charity shops, etc for wedding dresses. The wedding is a year away, so if the sale is later in the year that is ok.”
  • An idea from Samantha: “I had seen this in the Sunday Trib and it looked cool”
  • Martina says: “Low in Kellogg’s Raisin Bran as well. Thank’s again :0)” There is a $3.00/3 printable here. Anyone know of a good place to use it?
  • She also is: “Looking for a deal on Flushable Cleansing Cloths (Scott, Cottonelle…). Thank you :0)” This Amazon deal is one idea, any others?


  • For the Method deal, liz noticed: “theres a $1.00 off handwash method on my shopmium also!”
  • A baby food deal from andi: “check’s post (search Ella) on some of the recent baby deals. I got 4 pouches of Ella’s organic baby food for a friend for $0.40 total, or 10 cents each. TotallyTarget provides a link to a $1 printable, which works on a single item (obviously, you’ll need multiple printers as it’s 2 per [computer]). Then, Target text club for baby deals provides a $1.50/4 Target coupon. Lastly, I had 10% on Cartwheel (not sure when this expires). Had I been able to get ALL Strawberry apple, it would have been $0.06 total for all four. However, store was picked over, and I had to get other pouches with a ring price of $1.77 (the strawberry/apple was $1.39). Then used my redcard, of course.” Unfortunately, the Cartwheel expired 4/19.


  • Tamara found: “Free Glade Decor refills at Walgreens. $1 each when you buy 3. Buy 4 at $1 and use two $2/2 from rightathome.”


  • On the Hamburger Helper deal, Jane says: “I just printed up the rebate and it is limit 2 offers per address! I wonder how much ground beef is at Walmart anyway? That is $12.88 worth of free meat!” Not sure, but you could price match that as well!

Reader deals 4/18/14

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.


  • Jane says: “I used my 2- $1/1 printables for the Challenge butter Wed. to get them for $1.28 each….but then I noticed in this weeks Berkots ad, they had them for only $2 each. I was going there anyway this morning, so I tried to get another 2 for only a dollar each but they denied my coupon because it had a JEWEL LOGO on it! She even brought out the manual showing me the policy. It is a manuf. coupon and does not say ONLY at Jewel….I left them on the belt. Silly. Just wanted to share it w/ others who may shop there.”


  • Nikki shares: “I purchased the rain barrels Aileen is talking about last year. Unless they’ve changed it, it is a limit of 2 per household. They were not delivered in the time frame promised (shocker, right? LOL) but they were nice enough to hide them from street view, as we were not there when they were delivered. They were easy to install, came with instructions, & all the necessary hardware. After researching many rain barrels, these were the cheapest we found at the time.”


  • Something to look for from Outlander: “At Jewel, if you are doing $5/5 Kraft deal with Kool Aid Jammers, look for clearance ones (lemonade and watermelon flavors) for $1.58, so only $0.58 after the discount.”

Online deals

  • On the cheap refurbished desktop, Matt says: “I would add is that refurbished with desktop computers typically just means the computer was used, so they just wiped the hard drive and reinstalled a fresh copy of Windows. Individuals or businesses refurbishing computer are basically just part of a program where Microsoft allows them a cheaper license to put Windows on a used computer that has not had a motherboard change or processor upgrade so that it can resold or donated. Other types of refurbished products actually had something wrong with them and were repaired, so there may be a little more risk involved.  Definitely for the kids a machine like this is slightly faster than an old XP machine. Pick up a cheap flat panel monitor from the Good Will for under $10 and they’re ready to go. This machine was probably around in the early days of Vista (pre-2009) and may have had Vista or XP on it originally. You can usually get a decent used dual core machine on eBay for $100, but a lot of times the machines don’t come with an operating system. The biggest thing to check on a machine like this is to do a quick Google search to determine how much RAM you can put in these because that is the main thing that can be upgraded in a machine like this.” He also shares this link.


  • For the paper products deal, Kari O. says: “don’t forget there is a $1/1 Bounty DuraTowel in the coupon booklets from Pampers diaper cases! Also Target sent out those Spring mailers last month with $1/1 and $1/2 Paper Items which include Bounty 6ct+ packs.”
  • A deal from Jordan: “Use the Aveeno coupon in the latest of the Target Baby mobile coupons and the 5% off Aveeno on Cartwheel, then get $2 back from Checkout 51 for Aveeno baby lotion for as low as $.74 each.” Not everyone will have the Aveeno baby offer, but definitely worth checking your Checkout 51!


  • For more cheap detergent, Mallory realized: “If you “unlike” Ajax on Facebook and “relike” them again, it will let you print it more than once! :)”

Stop me before I shop again free Redbox shopping


I have shopped WAY too much this week. But Redbox texted a free code (Mr. 7 picked out Frozen to watch while they’re off school for Good Friday tomorrow!), and I figured as long as were were picking that up at Jewel anyway some cream cheese might be nice… As you can see, Mr. 7 quite enjoyed his free Kid’s Club apple, too.


Something was bonus here since I got six Monopoly tickets. They were all duds, but what can ya do.

2 Enjoy Life Plentils, $2.00 on the clearance rack. Will post-redeem two $.75/1 printables.
2 Claussen pickles, $3.98 after instant savings. Used two $.55/1 printables here.
3 Philly cream cheese tubs, $4.47 after instant savings. Used three $.75/1 printables here.
Land O’ Lakes half sticks butter, $1.99. Used $.50/1 printable (no longer available).

Paid $8.81. Will post redeem $1.50 in coupons for the Plentils to bring that down to $7.31. Oh, and got the free Redbox and free apple, too. :)

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.


  • Samantha posts on Facebook: “The $2 Dream Non Dairy coupon has reset!! Now printing with SmartSource”

Dollar Tree

  • Jane says: “Not about corn dogs….but I found Weight Watchers Smart Ones frozen meals today at DT! There were several kinds in freezer. I found the printable on Coupon tom for $2/7 and when you click the link it pops up a place to vote on a video and you will then get a $5/7 coupon! I tried to vote but cannot find the coupon to print up. Has anyone else got the $5 one to print? It says the contest goes on for 10 more days I believe. I clicked on the $2 link (thinking it may be boosted to $5) but nope. Thanks if anyone can assist me.”

Famous Footwear

  • Jane’s experience: “Just got to the mall today and they would not honor the $10 code they texted me! We tried to buy socks and the register said offer not valid on that purchase. We tried sale and regular and even over $10. I am going to email or call them because both my husband and I are rewards members and he even entered his info in. It was not a barcode to scan, just some numbers too. That was very disappointing to say the least.”
  • She adds: “Calling them was unreal, she told me they had to pull the offer because, get this: “too many people were getting that deal that were not supposed to” I told her I am a member and I texted the deal and received back a code to enter in store before they ended the offer. My code says it expires 4-21. She said she was sorry but they cannot do anything about it! I emailed them and complained. We will see if they reply. That is terrible business practice if you ask me.”


  • From Jeanne: “I notice that my local Jewel at Rt. 59 and Caton Farm in Plainfield/Joliet has begun sprucing up their produce department. I hardly shop there anymore since they can never seem to beat the prices of Tony’s across the street. They are putting in the vertical shelving similar to Whole Foods and Mariano’s, looks like they are adding more organic and the prices seemed a little lower. I have a feeling this is due to Mariano’s getting ready to open. Has anyone else had their local Jewel improve prices and or selection when Mariano’s came?”
  • Maureen reports on Annie’s mac & cheese: “These have been on sale at Jewel for $1.25/box for the last week. They have gone as low as $1.00/box at both Jewel and Target. This is not their 100% organic line which is usually over $2/box”


  • Kari O. says: “If you’re looking at Lowe’s website keep an eye out for their 12# Kingsford charcoal too. It’s a clearance item that has dropped to 90% off at certain locations. My parents got it for $1.28. So far I’ve only see $5.99 near me, so I’m waiting. I would do this deal but I don’t need that much charcoal.”


  • Emily is wondering: “There was a dollar coupon in this weekends paper for Birds Eye Recipe Ready vegetables. There are some Birds Eye vegetables on sale at Meijer this week for 1.00. Does anyone know if the Recipe Ready veges are included in this? Thanks!”
  • Melissa N says: “I miss the days of free Wesson. :( moment of silence observed. :). Anyway, starting on Thursday for you Chicagoland people at meijer (everyone else now). Wesson is $2.50/ bottle, use .75 coupon knocks it down to $1.75. It’s not free, but not bad.”


  • From peaches: “Save your money, and go to Menard’s and get their 8.8lb. bags of Royal Oak charcoal. It is on sale right now for $4.99 a bag, and there is a $20 rebate out there. This is way better charcoal than Kingsford is.”

Reader requests

  • One from tracey: “Can you please ask your readers where to find deals on or inexpensive graduation announcements.”
  • Elizabeth posts on Facebook about the coupon/stockpile swap: “is there anyone willing to do this in the des plaines area..on a weeknight somewhere?”
  • A question from cj: “i see there is a free coupon for 5 lb of shredding at office depot. is this good at office maxx as well? i heard the companies were combining. thanks!”


  • From liz: “I went to target yesterday with the 10 off 50 and spent $20.40 !! I got so many groceries using cartwheel mobile texts, coupons..ideas include stoffers family meals(get a free garlic bread) use the 1.50 coupon plus 1.00 target coupon(hip2save site, la Croix water was on sale for $3. (had a 1.00 off coupon), triscuit on sale for $2. (had $1.00 man. coupon), mini wheats cereal 50% cartwheel and $1/3(mashup), 2 dozen eggs, .50 mobile text, 2 driscoll strawberries 2/$4 with 2/5 produce text and 2 .50 coupons from their site, I found ground pork 3.74/lb, some had $1.00 stickers (because if a meat has a sell by date within a day or 2 you can ask them for a sticker coupon,,,I also used the $1 off fresh meat text and I had a $1.00off pork man coupon for .74 pork), .walk around your own store and take advantage of this coupon..use that coupon before any other coupon or text”
  • Something to look for from VB on the Mini-Wheats: “Th e mini what’s I bought where the ones for $2.99 the strawberry kind. Because those have the Spiderman codes. so by spending an extra 75 cents for three boxes I was able to get $5 In concession cash.” Be on the look out for special codes in general. Some of the regular have $5 cash with three codes, any of them could have $10 in music money with five codes, free books with three codes, $15 in coupons, etc. It all depends on when the boxes were printed and what ended up where.


  • A heads up from liz: “The $1/2 doesn’t work on the mars that are 2/$3. The coupon lists very specific sizes (2oz or larger) for the products and the snickers/m&m’s that are included are only 1 oz.”

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

Checkout 51

  • A tip from letsshop for using the app without a smartphone: “For the easiest way I just scan my receipts , taking picures for me and my old fashion cell phone to much trouble . So anyone else like me ! scan perfect every time (:”


  • Tips from feelgood: “For anyone registering for BP Rewards: If you also have an American Express card, check your AMEX account online under “Offers for You”. Mine has “BP: Spend $30, Get $5 Back”. If you have an American Express card but don’t have this offer for your card, you can sync it to your card through your Twitter or Facebook account.”
  • Jen k says: “I’ve been using BP rewards for about 6 months. Doesn’t save a lot but it’s something. The BP on Lawrence at 90 actually has good (city) prices to begin with so it’s not like I’m paying more just to save a nickel.”
  • He also says: “I don’t know if I have the same FRN card (there are several varieties). A few months ago, I went inside the Shell station and got a free FRN card from the clerk, registered it online without having to link a debit card, and have been getting $0.03/gal off every time since. Then I pay with a cashback or rewards credit card for even more savings!”

Harbor Freight

  • For those interested in more than just free tools, Steve F. comments: “Make sure you check your Sunday inserts too for coupons. We’ve had 25% off Q’s down here for awhile….and the dates go out pretty far .”

J.C. Penney

  • Ashley says: “Just a reminder that JCP in Stratford mall is closing this month, still a lot left, most 50-70% off.”


  • Shandelle found: “Jewel has select packets of McCormick seasonings on sale for $.69 right now, including taco and fajita seasonings and some others. They are also Monopoly bonus items. If you use the $.75 coupon from 4/6, you receive $.06 overage per packet applied to the basket also. Bought 4 tonight and it worked just fine.”



  • Shandelle shares: “There’s a $1/3 Hot Pockets in zip 03103 on which stacks nicely with the Target deal going on right now. Buy 5 boxes of Hot Pockets for, $8 for 4 AND Buy 4 Get 1 Free. Use $1 off 4 Hot/Lean Pockets Target printable, get 10% off Hot Pockets from Cartwheel ($.70 ; EXCLUDES Lean Pockets). Use $1/2 printable AND $1/3 printable. Final cost is $4.30 for five boxes or $.86 per box! Or if you have a Red Card, $4.08 or $.82 per box! This will only work on Hot Pockets. If you want Lean Pockets, you lose the Cartwheel discount.” She adds: “I realize you could use TWO of the $1/2 printables also but if you hoped to do the deal twice due to have 2 of the $1/4 Target printables, this would be a good way to do that.”
  • From andi: “Unless this deal was corrected, I got the $5 GC @ Target this past Sunday when I bought 1 Nasacort. Tag on shelf did not indicate two. Had a $5 MQ and a $4 TQ. MM, and coupon printer @ checkout spit out another $4 TQ.”
  • Brian is wondering about Angry Birds Jenga: “Anyone have any luck getting a rain check?  Woodridge had one in stock; said no to a rain check and no to giving me 25% off of the one.”

Ultra Foods

  • Mandy found: “The Miracle Whip at Ultra in Lombard had coupons on them for $1 off tuna with the purchase of the MW. A couple of the brands of tuna were on sale for a $1 a can. Nice bonus to the buy ten items deal.”


  • Suzann says: “The everyday price for the meow mix cups is $0.48 at WalMart. I have been finding a lot of clearance cat food on the end cap in the pet food aisle particularly the meow mix cups and Sheba cans.” Print BOGO Meow Mix here.
  • Renee found: “I was at Walmart in Joliet on Jefferson and they had the 2liter bottles of a&w 10, 7up 10, Rc 10 and a few more for a dollar but there was tags hanging off them for .55 so that would make them .45 per 2liter!!”
  • Shandelle adds: “Did you get the printable for $1.50/2 or $.50/2 TEN two liters from”
