Butera

  • From Diane S.: “A heads-up on the Piggly Wiggly water on sale at Butera for $1.69. There is no recycle number on these bottles, so I don’t believe they are recyclable. I don’t usually buy bottled water, but I was going to buy some for a graduation party. These is a note on the plastic packaging that states that the bottles may not be recyclable in your area. Where can you recycle plastic with no number? I was stunned to think that all these bottles will be going to landfills.”

Jewel

  • Patty comments: “The Trans-Ocean 20 oz. mock crab is for the Supreme only, not the Classic, so you can’t use the coupon. In addition, there was a sign next to the crab stating there’s an error in the ad; the price is $5.99, not $2.99.”

Mariano’s

  • On the Nut Exactly coupon + Snap, from liz: “They are on sale at Marianas for 2.50..or they were yesterday when I went..”
  • And peaches asks: “Does anybody know if the home made Italian sausage they have on sale for $2,50, includes chicken sausage?”

Meijer

meijeroffcat

  • Sophie shares an OFF Catalina she received at Meijer: Buy two OFF products between 5/18/15 – 7/12/15, get $1.50 OYNO.
  • From Cari: “Found tear pad at the deli at Homer Glen Meijer. Free Hawaiian sub rolls (up to $3) whey you buy 1 lb sara lee deli meat.”
  • On the Dreft deal, Debbie points out: “By the way, both coupons expire 5/31.”

Reader requests

  • A response to yesterday’s bread machine question from seachicago: “April, if your bread is always coming out hard and dense, I would check to make sure your yeast is “live.” Just put a couple teaspoons of yeast in a cup of warm water, and add a little sugar. If it foams up, it’s good. If not, it’s dead and your bread won’t rise. Also, when you add water to your bread machine, make sure it’s warm but not hot (think body temp!), and make sure your other ingredients are room temp. I keep yeast in the freezer to extend its life. For anyone looking to buy a bread machine, I bought a cheap WestBend from Bed Bath & Beyond online, with coupon and free shipping it was about $60. My family thinks it’s the best thing I’ve bought in ages! Rather than buying bread machine mixes at the store (pricey!), I use the recipes that came with my machine and mix up a few loaves-worth of dry ingredients at once and store in a ziploc bag. That way, I can have a loaf in the machine in about a minute, and with the “rapid” cycle we can have a hot loaf in about 90 minutes. That’s almost faster than I could get to and from the store to buy bread! :) We *love* our bread machine, but my husband complains it’s messing up his low-carb diet!”

Target

  • On the Hormel party tray deal, Diane asks:” Does anyone know if you have to go to a SuperTarget to get this? Or are they at the regular Targets? Thanks!”
  • And ann replies: “Only found these at Super Targets. The smaller ones were at the regular targets.”
  • If you’re having trouble finding the Horizon snack crackers, SoapboxTray says: “I find them on and off, the one I shop at never got the regular type just the sandwich crackers. Near the goldfish. (Super Target Mundelein)”

Whole Foods

  • On the Lightlife Smart Dogs deal, yvette says: “the coupon keeps printing over and over, I am able to add this to printer and it prints with a new code each time…”

Portobello chimichurri grilled cheese

portobello-grilled-cheese

I’m really enjoying the heck out of the $.45 portobello mushroom sales at Jewel. Last night MashupDad grilled some up along with our pub burgers, and today for lunch I made a grilled cheese on sourdough with a leftover grilled portobello & chimichurri. This was so very good that I just had to share the photo with you all. 😉

What are you making with your cheap mushrooms this week?

Cut the cord

  • Don responds to a question from yesterday: “HGTV is part of the base package on https://www.sling.com/ for $20 with several other channels – check that out”

CVS

  • Samantha comments: “I did the Playtex deal today. I was able to use the B1G1, along with the $3 manufacturer, and the $2 store. Register never beeped. I also did the Pull-Ups deal (4 @ 8.99 -4x$2 manufacturer – $2/10 Huggies, which did beep, but they put it through)”

Food 4 Less

  • Deal to look for from TracyS: “If you do the I can’t believe it’s not butter deal today, you get .50 for eggs in checkout 51 and .20 in ibotta. No guarantees checkout 51 will have the eggs deal tomorrow. Paid .32 for buttery spread and eggs!” Eggs is personalized; I don’t have it — check your own app.

Jewel

  • It’s late, but if you’re still out at Jewel buying pub burgers Cari suggests: “If you are buying the Sam Adames, look for coupons on the product for $2 off beef or grilling essentials when you buy a 12 pack ( or 2 six backs). Pair that up with the cheap pubs!!”
  • From hollis: “The St Charles Jewel had Hormel pork back ribs Buy 1 Get 2 free. Now the vast majority of packages were priced $7.99/lb but some were priced@ $3.99/lb so I bought those packages which worked out to just a little over $1/lb. The pub burgers were packaged in quantities of 3 or 4 and the limit of 10 was posted on the signs by the burgers”
  • Several of you have suggested getting a rain check if your Jewel is out of pub burgers tonight.
  • On the HFCS I spotted in hamburger buns today, barb suggests: “Between acrilomide, hfc, and various other preservatives softeners and the fact that the carbs aren’t good for us either had me digging out our 2 bread machines again. 1 for gf 1 for regular and getting unbleached flours at the farmers market. Cheaper, healthier and who doesn’t love thr smell of bread rising and baking. We make and freeze once every 2 weeks buns bread. As far as couponing…deals for bread machines are really the only true break I see that you could get.”
  • April asks about that one: “My bread in machine always comes out very hard and dense. I am not sure what am I doing wrong. I am following the recipes. Do you have any suggestions on how to improve the texture?”

Meijer

  • Kitty comments: “Re: meijer pet food deals. Be sure to check the mperks coupons. There are many that can be stacked for great deals. For example, $2 off $25 any cat food and treats; buy 40 get 10 free Friskies cans; 75c/6 cans any flavor Friskies cans; $2/3 Purina cat treats 5 oz+; and several for Purina dry foods and litter. Most of them should apply to the Purina spend $35 get $5 or spend $50 get $10 (either off or back ).”

Pete’s Fresh Market

  • Charlotte shares that: “There’s a Pete’s market opening up in Darien. It seems to be in the old Kmart location.”

Reader requests

  • A question from liz: “if you signed up for saffron emails..I got a coupon for 1.00 any product..there is also 1.00 back on saffron chickpeas from snap.. And .50 back from Ibottas ..anyone know where they are on sale? Or how much they run”

Target

  • Julie says: “the target pepsi sale price is 4/$10 when you buy 4. This works at the register as ringing up 4 at the regular price and then a store coupon for the difference in the regular price and sale price for every group of 4. You are correct that a 9th would be regular price.”
  • And shirley verifies: “12 pack Pepsi is 4/$11 in my area. When I bought it a few months ago, it rang up sale price after the 4th one but it is different this time.”
  • Kristin asks on Facebook: “Has anyone been able to find the Playtex Liners deal at Target? Not even a spot for them at my store. I am in the NW burbs. Thanks!”
  • An addition from feelgood to the midweek deals: “For the Weight Watchers Smart Ones deal, the SavingStar Spend $40 get $10 back offer has returned, and it doesn’t expire until July 29th. It’s also “one-or-many”, so doing one deal of 12 would put you about half-way toward your $10 back!”
  • BethP asks on the Horizon deal: “Are these crackers in the regular cracker aisle? I looked on target.com and it shows these in stock at my store but they weren’t in the regular cracker/cookie aisle…”
  • And Karen asks: “I’ve checked two Target stores and can’t find the Horizon crackers. It’s frustrating. Anyone having luck finding these?”
  • Nancy replies: “I found them in the aisle with the goldfish and other crackers, however the shelf was empty!”
  • ElizabethF comments on the Horizon deal: “I did the deal three times, one cheddar and two peanut butter. Here is how they worked: 2 Cheddar Crackers at $3.49 each. 50% Off from Cartwheel came off first (now $1.74 each). The coupon “beeped” but my cashier pushed it right through at $4.29 off. This amount worked as a payment for the total bill. = overage of $0.81 (applied to other things). Did this twice: 2 PB Crackers at $3.49 each. The coupon went right through subtracting $3.49 from the total. But this is where it got interesting. The 50% off from Cartwheel only came off the one I paid for. The receipt shows one box at $1.74 (citing a Cartwheel discount) and the second box at $3.49 and the coupon listed directly below the box for -$3.49. This coupon was applied to the item NOT the total bill. =$1.74 for two boxes.”
  • One more deal from Jessica on Facebook: “Target in crestwood clear conditioner $2.48. Buy 2 clear and 2 dove – use 4 – $2 = $7.74 with tax and get $5 got card = $2.74 for 4.”

Whole Foods

  • One from feelgood: “For anyone with American Express cards, go online and check your offers at the bottom of the page. Mine has: Spend $75 or more at Whole Foods Market, get $10 back.”

Jewel observations and clearance meat

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

harvestland

I stopped by Jewel today for pub burgers and strawberries. The “ten for $10 limit 10″ thing in the ad turned out to be “we have pub burgers packed in packages of six or eight, no limits posted on the signs.” I bought two eight packs, one for Memorial Day and one to have some tonight and possibly make chili later.

jewelbrats

The Lombard Jewel also had quite a bit of clearance meat, including packs and packs of 20 oz Jewel sausage and brats, 2/$7.00 with $2.00 off stickers = $1.50 each. I bought a couple of those for Memorial Day, too! I also picked up a couple whole Harvestland chickens clearanced at $.79/lb. which is a great price for that brand. Mine were $4.50 and $4.22 — and the full price chickens next to them ranged from $14 on up! I’ll go back and post-redeem two of the $1.00/1 printables (ZIP 02134).

gladcling

I told you in the matchups about the deal on Glad 200 sq ft cling wrap — $2.50, use $1.00/1 in the 5/3 SS1 and get $1.00 back from Ibotta. If you’d prefer smaller totally free Glad, the 100 sq ft is $1.99 — so $.99 after coupon, free after Ibotta cash back.

hfcsbuns

Lastly, I’ve mentioned before that I’m really trying to avoid buying products with HFCS. I went to go grab a pack of cheap hamburger buns for tonight, and found that both the Jewel brand buns and the Wonder buns sport high fructose corn syrup in their ingredient lists. I ended up getting Butternut (which, yes, contains all sorts of other stuff, but one step at a time, lol).

However, I still will be buying them Wednesday, but I probably will use the meat for chili, tacos, etc.”
