Jewel

  • Zuanne reports on a Deal of the Week, “Nature’s Bounty vitamins & supplements are BOGO, so I got 2 bottles of 120 count odorless fish oil capsules for $11.59.  Used two “$3 off fish oil or Co-Q10″ coupons from the 1/4 RP and a Catalina printed for $4 off my next shopping order. Not sure which “select varieties” are included or will produce the Cat, but it was a nice surprise!”
  • Terri reports on her deals, “Tried the MyMixx today. Couldn’t find the Sparkling water but my husband grabbed a 12 pack of A&W along with 3 coke products and it gave the root beer free and still rang the others up at $2.77! It also let me stack a McD’s coffee coupon in hand with the MyMixx one I clipped. With the $5.00 off it was a nice trip! Also, my clearance had a bunch of Olay Regenerist and Pro X items and clearance too for $4.99! There are P&G coupons for right now!!!”

Meijer

  • Katrice sent a deal, “Since this is meijer related, stopped in to grab Hefty paper plates & taco bell shells on sale. They had extra 50% off clearance toys and games.  Used 10% general merchandise meijer perks for toys and 5% perks for grocery. Scored two games to play with my luv bug!!”

Reader Requests

  • Liz reports, “snap is out of pistachio rebates already…anyone know of a good almond deal for the 2.50 rebate?”

Restaurants

  • Jen comments, “I don’t know if restaurants limit the Restaurant Week reservations (my guess is many do), but I do know the best places tend to book really early, so if you’re interested in some place get on it ASAP! You do need to look at the info closely because you’re usually choosing from a special small menu. (The Restaurant Week website links to the menus.) If that menu includes stuff you like it’s great, but if you’re pickier or just wanted something else, it’s not such a good deal. The value can also vary–some places only give you cheap options so it’s not really a huge discount. But DH and I love trying new restaurants, and this is a wonderful way to do that. There’s also a similar “Chicago Chef Week” that happens some time in March. And there’s a North Shore Restaurant Month that happens in February that includes casual as well as fancy restaurants: http://cnscvb.com/special/resmonth/restaurant.php

Walgreens

  • Tamara has a question about her deal,”At the Walgreens at 410 N Michigan Ave, the Trident gum 18pk was on sale for $.49.  I was able to use the in-ad coupon to get 500 points on 2.  $.98 and 500 points – almost like 2 packs for $.48, or $.24 each.This is my question – the in-ad coupon says $.69 each, Limit 3, 500 points on 2.  Usually the “Limit 3″ would be how many you could buy at that price in one transaction, but is there a limit on how many times I can get the 500 points on 2 using the in-ad coupon?  Can I buy 4 in one transaction and get 1000 points?”
  • Tamara updates, “Never mind… The 500 points on 2 had nothing to do with the coupon.  Bought 14 more packs at .49 each and got 3,000 points.”

Jewel MyMixx heads up — stop using your Jewel card

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

If you have been accustomed to scanning your old Jewel card or Upromise card at checkout for SavingStar or personalized Catalinas, you may wish to stop. Several of you have reported today that if you scan the card, the opportunity to scan your MyMixx phone number disappears and MyMixx offers won’t work. Looks like it’s time to add your MyMixx number to your SavingStar account and finally toss that old card!

  • Note: To clear up some confusion, adding your MyMixx number to your SavingStar account does not add it to your existing card. You cannot use your card for MyMixx. Everything is now done through your phone number.

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”

So I stopped at Jewel today and tried out Jewel MyMixx, and it was super easy! After you sign up and load your coupons online or in the app, just punch in your phone number on the keypad at checkout while they are scanning your items and you can see the coupons come off right as items are scanned. Here’s my free Canada Dry Sparkling water, which, by the way, is tasty…

C) So-so.
D) Other.

This week at Jewel, frozen Margaritaville breaded shrimp are on sale BOGO at $8.99. There’s a new $1.00/1 printable coupon here that should allow you to get two for $6.99 after using two coupons — handy if you long ago reached the print limit on the one on the Margaritaville site!

meatballs

Update – OK, so it may ONLY be the Westmont store, since no one else is finding them tagged this price. :(

——

Kay sends over this photo of Mama Lucia meatballs tagged $1.00 at the Westmont Jewel (Ogden & Cass) through 2/21, making them free with the $1.00/1 coupon in the 1/11 RP. These were not tagged at several other Jewels, so it looks like a sale at select locations only. If you spot them on sale for $1.00 at your store, please comment with the location — thanks!

Catalinas

  • From Sarah, “Just a heads up on the Farm Rich catalina.  I received the notification in the past week or so when checking out at Meijer.  It is valid on 16 oz or larger so double check your sizes!”

Jewel

  • Lynn comments on Deals of the Week, “On the buy 4 Canada Dry, get 2 free Orville Redenbacher 3-packs, note that the OR is BOGO, so you get; 4 popcorn and 4 sodas for $3.96.  The machine didn’t want to take my coupon and I didn’t argue (“too few items purchased”), but I think you should be able to stand your ground and use 2 $1 q’s and get the whole thing for $1.96!  I could be out of date on Jewel’s coupon policy, but think that’s right.”
  • Dani has suggestion for using your Mymixx number on Savingstar, “ok.  I just entered mymixxx phone number in both tabs and it worked.  So, if you are new to saving star, you just register for mymixx and then go to savingstar and added “new card” which would be your mymixx number.  I figure if I don’t have to carry around a card, then I will register for savingstar.”

Meijer

  • Feelgood has a comment on the Two Day Sale, “Check your stash for Jack’s Pizza $.75/1 printables from a few months ago. They had very long expiration dates, mine don’t expire until 3/31/15.”
  • More on deals of the week from Feelgood, “Another good advertised deal this week is Kraft 12 oz Cheese Singles for $2.00. There’s an mPerks coupon (exp 1/31/15) for $1.00 off, making it just $1.00.” and “Went shopping to the Homer Glen Meijer Wednesday night and scoped out the Farm Fresh, regular shelf price is $5.99 each. If you do the deal Friday or Saturday using the mPerks 5% off, the deal for three would be $11.98, minus $.60 (5% off) = $11.38. Minus two $1.50/1 coupons = $8.38, minus a $5.00 OYNO, for a net cost of $3.38, or $1.13 each!”
  • Some coupons to look for from Feelgood, “Also check your stash for DiGiorno B2G1F printables from about a month ago, mine expire 1/31/15.  Figuring on buying in sets of three, paying $9.00 after coupon, and getting a $2.00 OYNO, for a net cost of $7.00, or $2.33 each.”

Reader Requests

  • Nilo answers a question about the Canon Laser Printer from yesterday, “couponnurse, i have a canon pixma too and i use remanufactered ink in it only. i stick with ink for dummies as that one does work in my printer. i have used a different on (don’t remember the name) and it did not work. maybe try a different one.”
  • Artie also has a response, “Couponnurse,I have used Canon printers for over 20 years,used generic ink and have never had problems. I currently buy them on Amazon from a company called  TonerPlusUSA and end up paying less than $1.00 a cartridge for a Canon MX892 printer.”
  • SoapboxTray has a question on Midweek Meal Planning, “Question on this topic, does anyone use an app or anything to keep track of what is stored in freezers? I have 3 freezers and am always digging around trying to figure out what I have meat wise. Curious if something with scanning bar codes… would be nice. Maybe wipe boards in my basement by the freezer? Would love to know how others keep track. Thanks!”

Target

  • Cindy points out a deal to go with the Cheap Hot Chocolate, Cheap Cookies deal, “There is also a 10% off 10 count Swiss Miss Cocoa on cartwheel.
  • Kay asks about the cookie deal, “Has anyone done the Keebler cookie deal with any cookies other than the S’mores? The Sandies did not work at my Target.”
