Costco

  • A warning from kristin b: “I am a costco member, but do not use their gas. Watch your mileage after a fill up there vs elsewhere..i got terrible mileage with costco gas. It was cheaper but i got 40 to 50miles per tank more elsewhere so i stopped going…”

Coupons

  • A couple of heads up from Jane: “Wow, I was clipping some P&G coupons and noticed the Clairol hair color ones (to match up nicely with your clearance Jewel finds here) and the $5/2 is already EXPIRED! 4-12 The other $2/1 is good thru 4-30 however. I was shocked when I saw this and wanted to warn people in case they spotted hair color in their clearance section too. I have seen BOGO P&G cpns. expired in only 2 weeks, but never a reg. one. *It also appears all of the P&G cpns. now have that wording about NO OVERAGE on them.”
  • And a new find from Laura: “Brand new 75 cents off Essential Everyday Paper Towels coupon on http://www.essentialeveryday.com

Big Lots

  • Finds from Connie: “I went to Big Lots in Oakbrook Terrace for the first time in like, forever, and they have a new deli and dairy section. Prices are absurdly high but it might be worth keeping an eye out for deals there. Also on sale right now is gluten free Chex Oatmeal. *Most* of the boxes were marked $2 but some were marked $2.50. This is cheaper than the Amazon subscribe and save price right now ($2.53 per box in a 2 pack). I got 3 boxes of the brown sugar variety, but they had plenty of original, brown sugar, apple cinnamon, and variety packs. Also a good deal is the Gluten Free Cafe Soup cans for $1.25 each. Be careful in the rest of the gluten free section – it merges with the “healthy” section so you need to read labels carefully. There were some wafers in there, for example, that were made with whole wheat.”

Deals of the day

  • On the cheap cake molds today, seachicago suggests: “Just a tip for these type of silicone molds in general: don’t use dish soap when you wash them! Sounds unsanitary, I know, but wash them with hot water and then you can dry them quickly in a hot oven, if you feel like you need to disinfect! I have a lot of experience with these molds, and they tend to retain the soap, which will give your foods an odd, unpleasant taste.”
  • A heads up on the magnetic screen from Charlotte: “I tried the Aldi brand of this 2 summers ago, and it didn’t work. It kept falling out, both with tacs and the velco strips.”

Dunkin Donuts

  • Brandy shares: “Also, heads up. Until April 30. If you use your Dunkin Donuts Perks app gift card (must be loaded), any size coffee is $.99 until 4/30. You can pair this with a free donut receipt (do survey from last visit to get free donut with Medium or larger beverage) and you’ll pay $1.07 for a donut and extra large coffee each time! Been doing this all month. Good for a week more.”

Jewel

  • Some clearance Martha spotted: “Bolingbrook at Boughton & Weber has a bunch of organic baby food jars for $.37/ea – various flavors.”
  • Brandy confirms the Quaker oatmeal price: “Confirmed price of those Quaker Oat Select Starts are $3.99 at my Jewel. Not on sale, no bonus ticket. With coupon (also on MyMixx) + cash back on Ibotta, will bring down to $2. Still not an ideal price IMO… but not terrible. I didn’t buy.”
  • And if you find the weird flavors of Betty Crocker cupcake mixes on clearance too, Brandy says: “I’ve only tried the orange variety, but those cupcake mixes are not even a little bit delicious.”

Meijer

  • Additions to this week’s Meijer deals from feelgood: “For the 3/$5.00 Coffee Mate deal, there’s a $1.00/3 Target coupon. Also check your stash of Meijer Catalinas. I have $1.00/1 and $2.00/2 Coffee Mate manufacturer coupons good on 16 oz or larger.”
  • Another find from feelgood: “45 oz Country Crock Spread is also on the Buy $8 Save $8 deal, for $1.99. Look on your mPerks, I have a $1.50/1 coupon on mine. So $0.49 for the big tub!”
  • Valentina S. shares: “I have both MQ $2.00/1 Speed Stick Gear deodorant and store $1.50/1 any deodorant or antiperspirant mperks coupons. Free Speed Stick Gear!”

Target

  • On the L’Oreal treatments deal, Patti says: “At my store, all the treatments were $5.99. The stylers were the only ones that were $3.99.”
  • And SmartShopper comments: “I did this L’Oreal Target deal Wednesday night and worked perfectly. It is hard to determine what is a treatment and what is a styler.  However, my coupons went through without any beeps and I did receive my $5.00 Target gift card.  There is also a $2/1 printable available if someone does not have (3) $3/1 mfg coupons.”

Walmart

  • Heads up on the Walmart $5 beauty box from Kari O.: “I got the last box…. Very disappointed. Targets is better. The items I got are things I’ve gotten free from Pinchme. The perfume same was a tiny tube and the only big item was a bad Rimmel mascara.”
  • Lisa comments: “I too was unable to use the razor coupon at Walmart. I was dealing with a manager on this and as I was waiting realized they were the cheapest razors known to man and I was annoying myself for nothing. I thanked him , took my useless coupons and went home. Walmart is more miss than hit for me.”

Why I don’t have a place to trade Jewel Monopoly pieces

Because this has come up repeatedly in comments and emails: There’s no place to trade Monopoly pieces here because: Everyone needs the same ones. There is one “rare” piece in each prize category, so each and every one of you looking to trade will be looking for the exact same pieces.

The definition of insanity shopping, plus a lot of baked beans

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

jewel423

I went to Jewel this morning looking for the advertised $7.99/lb sockeye salmon. My Jewel of course had none — as they also had none on the last sockeye salmon sale, or the one before that. What’s the definition of insanity, something like doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result? lol — so, my NEW if somewhat less healthy meal plan for tomorrow is cheap corned beef in the slow cooker ($1.99/lb for points at Ultra Foods and another extra stop later…). Tonight I’m going to cook up this corn to have with our portobello mushroom pizzas, and maybe some $.88 salad. (Also from Ultra. Oh wait, it was actually net $.63 after Jewel Big Book coupon + Snap app rebate.)

Nine cans Bush’s baked beans, $8.93. Used three $1.00/3 from the 4/12 SS.
O Organics soy milk, free with coupon that appeared randomly on my door last week.
Herdez salsa verde, $2.50. Used $.50/1 printable here.
Chef Boyardee, free with coupon from the Monopoly game.
Two 12 pack 8 oz Ice Mountain, $3.33. Used $.75/2 in the 3/8 RP.
Organic Roma tomatoes, $.52. Will get back $.25 from Ibotta and $.25 from Snap Groupon.
4 ears of corn, $1.00.

Paid $12.29 and got back a $1.00 Catalina from Ice Mountain + $.50 back from Ibotta & Snap for a net cost of $10.79.

Oh — I’m really on a Monopoly roll now!

herbal

Last week at Jewel, we won a free can of Chef Boyardee. Today… a free bottle of Herbal Essences Hello Hydration shampoo. It’s not quite the $1 million I’ve been hoping for, but…

Anyone win anything else since we last chatted about this? :)
