  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • On the Amazon Mom changes, Mary Jo on Facebook shares: “In good news, current members get a $30 credit. I suppose they are trying to keep me happy. It’s kind of working.

Apps

  • BethP noticed on Ibotta: “And Mariano’s is added too, yay!”

Dollar General

  • For the $.85 sale, Jane says: “I see a new coupon in todays red plum for Renuzit, buy 3 get 3 free, max value $3.30!”
  • From renee: “Check your dollar General stores also for the cascade rebate. I work in a advertising company and we put those rebates up in there this week.”

Kmart

  • A question from katy on the double coupon event: “Any good diaper deals for this scenario. Tia”
  • A warning from lisa: “Km art (in Joliet anyway) will not take ANY coupons that are printed by you.No manufacturer coupons you printed.just so people don’t go with them and get disappointed…..”

Meijer

  • Rangerdave says: “Meijer has backpacks on clearance.and they will be an additional 25% off Sunday through Saturday. The store on Boughton and Weber will have a larger variety of clearance backpacks.”
  • A find from kim: “At Meijer the 18 ct popsicle brand air head popsicles are $2.14 and there is a $2.00 off 9-24 ct popsicle brand. 14cents!”

Reader requests

  • DON is wondering: “Someone once mentioned that Goodwill gets Target stuff on Tuesdays – any truth to this?”
  • Kari O. responds: “Goodwill does receive Target Salvage, but the day is dependent on the locations. The super northern Chicagoland areas gets them on Friday. But keep in mind they price the items for more than the 70% off clearance price was. So you’re better off catching the items before they are Salvaged.”

Rebates

  • Sent over by Kitty: “There’s a $20 rebate on Olay facial skin care products wyb $50 worth.   it expires 9/30 but some of us may have purchased Olay products this week at Target and there’s still time to get to the $50 if you are close.”
  • Jane wonders: “On the rebate for the Action Pacs (Cascade), do you think they will send you the Visa card for $5 no matter what price you’ve paid? Like when you bought yours at DG, even without a coupon, it was less than $5. So, are we smart to shop around for the cheapest pacs if they issue a $5 card no matter what you paid. I wonder if they can actually issue a card for say $3.29? I see the rebate started 9-1….possibly others can chime in on what they did.”

Target

  • Susie shares: “Try the target in crestwood, I just picked up some backpacks @70% off on Friday. I got my 6th grader a black one on clearance for $11.98 to keep as a spare, it was originally $39.99. Also I picked up some other ones for $4.98 and $5.98. Call around because each location does markdowns at different times. The back to school clearance was between the sporting goods and toys department”

Kmart double coupons up to $2.00 face value starts 9/28

kmartdouble

Kmart will be doubling manufacturer coupons with a face value of up to $2.00 (so $2.00 doubles to $4.00) for Shop Your Way Rewards members 9/28-10/4/14. Minimum purchase of $25 of grocery, household, or drugstore items required. Limit five coupons per customer per day. When they do this, you can USE more coupons on your other items, but only the first five will double.

  • Please comment here with any scenarios you try or put together — I’m not a Kmart shopper, and mine closed a while back. :)

There’s also a $10 Visa gift card rebate when you buy $30+ in participating P&G products, get offer form in store. I haven’t seen the form, but if it is before coupons, you should be able to do pretty well with doubles + rebate.

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.

Amazon

  • Found by feelgood, select Amazon accounts are receiving an offer for a free $10 promo code with a $50 gift card purchase. Sign into your account then click on this gift card promotion link, and you’ll either see the offer or a message saying your account is ineligible.

Costco

  • Sarah says: “I know that Costco always has Horizon organic creamer in the 32oz carton for that $4ish price. They also carry organic milk, but its not the Horizon brand. Their organic ground beef is a little over $4/lb which seems to be a good price. If you eat a lot of organic food, it seems like Costco would be a good place to go.”
  • She also shares: “I don’t know if this was a special deal or not, but at the Costco in North Riverside, they had an 8 pack of cartons of Kirkland Campbell’s soup tomato basil bisque soup for about $5 and they are delicious. I also got an 8 pack of Muir Glen fire roasted diced tomatoes for around $3. Right now La Croix sparkling water is $6ish for a pack of 30, which is a good price for that.”
  • Artie confirms: “Every Costco I’ve been to,7,carry Horizon half & half,and heavy cream. 64 oz cartons”
  • From Lori: “The [Namaste] GF flour is a favorite of my gluten free teen who loves to bake! We also have been purchasing the Nitrate free bacon at Cosco – I think it is $14.99 for three 12oz pkgs. My family loves bacon, but I hate to feed them Nitrates – and the bacon tastes great.”
  • Martha comments: “The organic milk is sold in multiple packs of 1/2 gal containers, and I want to say the works out to around $4 per 1/2 gal.”
  • SoapboxTray adds: “I regularly buy the Horizon half and half for creamer, I gave up the flavored ones about a hear ago. The expiration dates on the half and half is good too, usually a month or two out. Lake Zurich usually carries Horizon whipping cream too and the individual chocolate milks. There organic milk was $11 I believe for 3 half gallon containers.”
  • Martha shares: “I have a family of five and a few regular items I buy there are:
    • Kirkland/Starbucks Fair Trade coffee beans, it’s something like a 3 or 5lb bag for $10
    • Organic tortilla chips, a HUGE bag is about $3
    • Their 2pk of Kirkland multigrain bread is delicious and is $4, and does not have that yoga mat bread additive in it
    • Hamburger buns come in a 12 pack for about $2.30, nice big ones, also without the additive in it.
    • Usually I’ll buy them and we’ll have burgers and crumbly burgers (like sloppy joes) that week.
    • Their 4 lb packs of butter are between $8-9, so about $2 per lb
    • Their 24 pk of organic free range eggs are a little over $6, they can be found cheaper occasionally elsewhere, but for consistency, this is a decent price
    • They have a big pack of 6 romaine lettuce hearts for I think just under $4 that we get and use for salads, sandwiches, shred for tacos, etc.
    • At first I thought I was crazy for getting so many at once, but so far, I don’t know that we’ve had much waste when I’ve bought them.
    • I also buy their diapers when there is a coupon that month, it works out to be cheaper than Amazon Mom (both huggies and Kirkland), and
    • Oxyclean generally goes on sale for $4 off every couple of months, making it about $12-13 for the big box of it.
    • We used to always get string cheese there, but the price has gone up a bit over the past year or so. It is still a decent price at $10 for a 48 pack, but it used to be $8-something.”
  • Lynn says: “Charisma bath sheets (the great big towels) are $11.99. They have limited colors, but I bought off white and they’re less than half the price of other stores. They also now sell baguette style bread in their bakery and it’s delicious. The shorter fatter loaves were tasty, but the long skinny ones are more versatile for our family. I think they are $4.99 for 2. Fage nonfat yogurt is also a good deal. They increased the size of the container and raised the price – now 48 oz for $5.99, but delicious if you can eat the equivalent of 8 small containers by the expiration date (hint: only use a clean utensil to scoop; fruit remnants will encourage mold to grow quickly!). K-cups, organic chicken stock, sea salt, dog food and (for an occasional indulgence) cheeseburger flavor chips – weird, but oddly addicting – are recurring buys.”

Coupons

  • On the Starbucks coupon, Terri J reports: “Wouldn’t work at Walmart. Worked at Jewel with 1.00 overage.”
  • And Valentina S. points out: “Save $1.00 when you buy one single bottled Starbucks iced coffee offer is also on Saving Star. Exp. 9/15/2014. One time use only.”

Freebies

Jewel

  • A find from Liz: “I found GOT 2 Be hairspray on clearance at jewel in park ridge normally 4.99 priced at 2.49..use the man. coupon 2.50 off hairspray for free hairspray”

Kmart

  • Sent over by feelgood: “Sears & Kmart Coupon for Shop Your Way Members: $10 in Points w/ $10+ Purchase (Facebook Required)” Click earn $10 back in points here, click get offer, then they email the code/coupon.

Mariano’s

  • From SoapboxTray: “I buy my organic milk from Marianos. $4.99 for a gallon but it is in plastic.”
  • She adds: “Also noticed that Mariano’s had Kalona Super Natural Milk with cream on top! I was going to try it but didn’t want to get too much milk to haul into work. If anyone has tried curious to know how it is. $4. for half gallon.”
  • Something to look for from John W: “The front section of my Tribune today had a Mariano’s wraparound ad that included a $4/$40 coupon thru Sept 3 (it doesn’t seem to have any exclusions, has anybody tried to buy alcohol with it?). Also, some specials in the ad good through Sept 3, $3/lb fresh made Black Angus pub burgers, half gallon fresh orange juice $3.50, fresh wild swordfish $10.99/lb. Mariano’s is also running a daily $4 special announced on their facebook page each morning”
  • From peaches: “Every time I have been in the Northfield Mariano’s they have had the fresh squeezed OJ for $3.50. It is really good. I think it is a lost leader. They sell tons of it. “

Meijer

  • A report from liz: “just came back from Meijer in rolling meadow and they had about 30 trial size rave hairspray..free coupon expires in 3 days..excited I finally found them”

Savers

  • Kari O. warns: “In Utah and Oregon I LOVED these 50% Holiday sales, but here the Lake Zurich store has been a huge disappointment. They overprice their items anticipating this sale…. For example: Regular Used Under Armor shorts priced at $19.99 instead of the “normal” $9.99 during non-holiday times.
    So, if you’re in between Crystal Lake or Lake Zurich… Go to Crystal Lake! Or any other location. :)”

Target

  • Something to be on the lookout for, from Kari O.: “I got a new Target Mailer of $21 worth of coupons…. It’s adorable. ‘How do we thank you? Let us coupon the ways. As one of our favorite shoppers, we think you totally deserve it.’ I love Target….”
  • From ellen: “went to target today and got Pasta Chips on sale $2.00. I had a printable for $2/2 so they were $1 each after coupon. Hope I like them. I had 2 $1 target couons for scotch tape. they were on sale bogo50%off. I got ones that were $1.44 so just $.44 after coupons on the 2 of them.”
  • On the Glad deal, Like2save says: “FYI – The $3.44 trash bags are the 4 gallon size.”
  • Maureen says: “8 gallon, those are $3.44, too.”
  • And anne warns: “Just did this deal and the 50% off the second one didn’t come off. Of course I only noticed AFTER I left. BUT I had 2 mobile q’s for glad, one was for $2/1 and the other for $1/1. I bought 2 and should have paid $1.16 minus the 5% CW. Going back to the ad to see if it says the bogo half off is only on larger ones…”
  • From Shandelle: “Like anne mentions, there’s also $1 off one Glad trashbags with mobile coupon PACKITBACK exp 10/4. I think you could stack both since those mobile coupons are from different sets on the same phone and the store coupons are different values, if your store doesn’t let you use multiple of the same one (mine has never cared but others have said theirs won’t).”
  • She adds: “Also the Buy 1 get one half off is only for larger sizes per the ad on target.com. Good on 13 gallon at the smallest.”
  • She also says: “You should be able to scan coupons from multiple barcode sets on the same phone in the same transaction also.. Like if they’ve sent you several sets and you did some of the promo code ones. They all count as separate ones as long as the barcode is different and you’re following the rules of one store and one manufacturer per single item.”
  • And finally, she suggests a way to possibly get more than one of the same mobile coupon: “In my experience you can. I have a friend that never shops Target because it’s a half hour drive when he has WM & Meijer basically across the street. When he comes to visit me, he does the Target texts so I can use his. We’ve done 2 of the same mobile coupon from 2 phones/barcodes in one transaction before and it worked. YMMV as far as cashier resistance to trying, though.”

Walmart

  • An idea from feelgood: “The $5 Minute Maid Walmart $5 gift card deal is still going on. Minute Maid is now $1.88 at Walmart, but can be price matched at $1.29 from the Eurofresh or Butera ad. After price matching and using the $1.00/4 printable, it becomes a $0.84 moneymaker!”

Amazon

  • Outlander found Nivea shaving cream: “Another cheap thing on Amazon. There’s $2 Q, and it’s also part of Buy 3 Get 1 free. “
  • Heather on the Izze deal: “No, They are way cheaper at Costco. I believe their around 11.99.”

CVS

  • A question from ellen: “if anyone has a good scenario on foundation and/or powder can you please post here? i am almost out of powder and my foundation supply is getting low. i am not brand specific so any kind will suffice. thanks.”

Jewel

  • Kari O. asks: “Has anyone seen 25¢ Affy Tapples single apples at Jewel-Osco? I saw this on IG but their “Red Alert” pricing is SO random at every location. Hoping it’s at all locations but feeling doubtful.” She adds: “I think they’re delicious as long as you refridgerate them first, then slice them off the stick. The center gets mushy.”

Kmart

  • Check your SYWR account, because Felicia sends over: “I logged into my acct last night and saw that I have $88 in surprise points for shoes. (!!!) I don’t know how I got so lucky. Athletic shoes for the family are buy one, get one 50% off so I got my dd2 a couple pr for the winter and a pair for myself. I also had $10/$50. I walked away not paying anything and still have points to buy more shoes!”

Menards

  • Kari O. reports: “I noticed yesterday at Menard’s they had 20 ct Frito-Lays Classic multipack chips on sale for $4.99! Cheaper than the last Amazon deal and Sam’s Club. :)”

Reader requests

  • From Carlyn on Facebook: “I’m in the market for a rug steam cleaner. Any advice/deals? attachment for cleaning the couch would be a bonus!

Target

  • Kari O. is wondering: “Does anyone know what day Targets meat department does markdowns? Hoping to triple stack with a $2 off coupon. :)”
  • Krystle shares: “Bought Laughing Cow @ $2.79 and Babybel @ $2.99, total $5.78. Used $1/1 printables for both, but to my surprise the $1/$5 Target mobile coupon for market pantry cheeses applied to my purchase. So after Ibotta, my total was $1.78 for both!!! While scrutinizing my receipt, I also noticed cartwheel discounts for items I did NOT have selected on my CW. Has this happened to anyone else? I normally check my items as I throw them in my cart. But my DH was randomly grabbing things. I thought this was strange. Oh and don’t forget about the FREE Colgate toothbrush with $1/1 Colgate mobile coupon (text Thanks), auto adjusts at register.” I had that once with Cartwheel, where all of the applicable offers came off, regardless of whether I had selected them. I have no idea why it happened that time and not others where I forgot to check and add.

Jewel

  • Andrea reports on the $1.49 EE cheese: “Also at the Jewel on Laraway in New Lenox, but not the one on Nelson in New Lenox.  I figured it had something to do with the Meijer opening in Frankfort.”
  • Terri J adds: “It’s .49 cents in Lockport too!”
  • Kay asks: “Which Oswego Jewel?”

Kmart

  • Jane says: “It’s K-Mart that sells Crystal Farms cheese! I was confusing Dutch Farms that they sell at Ultra and Jewel with this one. It is actually featured on the front of the Kmart ad thru today for 2/$5 8 oz. chunks or shreds. Whew, glad I figured that one out because it was bugging me.”

Meijer

  • Mandy reports: “Meijer in Bloomingdale had [the Rave travel size] just after the coupon came out, but, they were $1.29 or more I think, which isn’t a good deal to me, but, if you need them, try there.”
  • Valentina noticed: “I got an e-mail from Chobani with subject line ‘New Chobani Limited Batch. Special offer just for you!’ The offer was BOGO Chobani Greek Yogurt 5.3 oz. I printed 2 copies. And I have an Ibotta offer $.75 back when you buy 3 Chobani limited edition yogurt.”

Reader requests

  • Amanda asks: “Has anyone seen any discount codes for Morton Arboretum? Thanks so much!”
  • An alternative from Jen k: “If you’re near Morton Arboretum, consider Cantigny in Wheaton. It’s the old Robert McCormick estate that he donated to the city. The grounds are gorgeous, you can do tours of the home, plus there is a war museum on the property. The kid favorites are the real tanks they can climb all over. The whole thing is family friendly, they allow picnics or eat in their cafe. Parking is $5 and entrance is FREE. “
  • Kelly replies: “A second “yay” for Cantigny. Tanks are a highlight, as are the glass floor in the welcome building with a diorama underneath and the walk through war museum. My kids have loved it for years.”
  • Maggie is wondering: “Has anybody used these replacement screens before? Would you recommend doing this yourself? Thanks!”

On the left side, pick the ‘Back to School Specials’ menu. They’re on Montgomery Rd in Aurora. We just paid $12.xx for an 18″ xl pizza with one topping.”

Target

  • Outlander shares a Quaker idea: “I guess I would buy 11 for $22.50, use 4 $1/2 mfr Qs, 3 $2/3 Target Qs. Pay $12.50 for 11, or $1.14 still. I can’t get it cheaper.”
  • Amanda shares: “When we were in Michigan last week my mother picked that exact place mat up for my daughter at Target. It was $1.99 and they had a lot of other characters. I haven’t looked since I’ve been home but if someone is visiting Target it’s worth a look.”
  • Janell comments: “I read on Hip2save that [Vlasic Farmer's Garden] may be $2.34 at Target.”

Walmart

  • Beth P suggests: “There’s a $1/1 Birds Eye Recipe ready on Savingstar (exp 8/30) so you can submit your receipt from Walmart on the SS app!”
  • A tip from Shandelle: “You can check specific stock on walmart.com including these travel size Rave hairsprays. It’s usually fairly accurate.”
  • MamaHan shares: “The Walmart in Bloomingdale has the latest issue of Que Rica Vida by the customer service counter. The person at CS said they’re free, and they had some decent coupons inside. http://issuu.com/quericavida/docs/july-aug-2014_compressed?e=6360471/8731058 shows what the front cover looks like.
