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!”

This offer is valid Monday thru Thursday 4pm to 9pm online only. Valid for pickup or delivery. Give our online ordering a try and save money doing it. www.eatza-pizza.com. 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. Pages 45 and 47 have the coupons, which all expire 8/31/14.

Amazon

  • Janice is a fan of the HSI flat iron: “Love mine. My daughter comes over to use mine all the time.”

Jewel

  • On the cookies someone had trouble with, feelgood had better luck: “I bought both the S’mores marshmallow and the Simply Made peanut butter chocolate chip, both rang up $1.49 each after the instant discount. Used $1.50/1 from KFR redemption for free cookies. A friend tried the S’mores peanut butter, those rang up $1.99 and no instant discount came off.”
  • Also from feelgood: “Found this at all three Jewels I went to tonight. These Dietz & Watson 16 oz sausages marked $6.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00 each: Smoked Sausage Cheddarwurst, Black Forest Bratwurst, Natural Casing Beef Franks, Uncured Beef Franks. Deli Beef Franks, marked $5.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00. Deli Franks, marked $5.49 on the shelf, scanned for $2.50. After the $2.00/1 coupon found on page 11 of the monthly Big Book of Savings, makes the sausages $1.00 or $0.50 each!”
  • Finally, he shares: “Jewel has a gift card promo until Tuesday 7/29. Buy a $100 American Express Gift card, get a $10 Jewel catalina for your next purchase. $10 catalina expires a week later. Bought some yesterday, with the $5.95 fee total is $105.95, so a $4.05 MM. Even better if you pay with a credit card that offers cashback, miles or points for purchases.”

Kmart

  • Lisa reports on the Downy deal: “Yes, it rolls. You will need a filler just like Walgreens if you are using a coupon on every item you buy. I found Downy at my store with Spanish print for $3.47 so with tax it ended up being a $3.88 mm for 3 with coupon.”
  • Jane asks: “So, if you only bought the 3 Downys and used the $5/3 coupon, you will need to buy just 1 filler item (to be able to use the $5 Catalina) or will you need 2 filler items if you also use the 5000 points on that order? Thanks!”

Kohl’s

  • From Outlander: “At Kohls, through today, is this fantastic deal on Nutribullet: Go to Kohls.com, put Nutribullet in your cart. It’s on sale for $89.99. Use HOMESALE10, for $10 off, use a code from your email that gives either $5, $10 or $15 off your purchase of $25 or more (my code was $10 off), use JULY15SHIP for free shipping (or it’s free shipping over $75), and use POOLSIDE for 25% off with your Kohl’s charge card (maybe you have 30% off?). Brings it down to $55.64 for me, including tax, and you still get $10 Kohl’s cash for being over $50, so that brings your total down to $45!!!! That is the best price I have ever seen, and I would definitely recommend it!!”

Target

  • Krystle shares: “Awesome deal @ Target this week on Downy. Buy 4 @ $7.99 ea get a $10 Target gift card. Use $2/2 downy Mobile TQ, $2/2 downy printable TQ NLA (I think the same coupon was also in the home mailer if you were lucky enough to get one), $5/3 Mfg 7/27PG, and $1/1 Mfg 7/27PG. You will end up paying $2.99 each, that’s less than 3 cents per load if you buy the regular 120 load bottles. The downy infusions is also included but the bottles are only 96 loads. This trip helped me finish my PG MIR.”
  • Melinda posts on Facebook: “We were at the Lombard Target today and found Up&Up SPF30 (spray) on clearance for $3.00 each, reg price is $6.04

Walmart

  • Yvette shares some news: “A heads up to Wal-Mart shoppers who like to price match. There may soon be no need to price match at the register if you’re a frequent Wal-Mart shopper. The company is rolling out a new app that will allow you to input your receipt information and will then automatically determine if you could have saved money shopping elsewhere. Any difference will be issued as a Wal-Mart gift card on your next visit. The program is in beta for employees only at this point but it’s working really well and is getting great reviews. I expect we may see it roll out at the end of the year. Couldn’t wait to share with MOM readers!”

Amazon

  • Outlander found barbecue sauce: “Cheap filler on Amazon with 20 s&s and 25% off Q. And this one is delicious. I’m using it right now.”

Freebies

  • John W shares: “Next week, Eli’s Cheesecake (6701 W. Forest Preserve Road in Chicago, near Montrose/Oak Park Ave.) celebrates Cheesecake Day with various free samples: July 30, free slice 9am-6pm; July 31, free samples 9am-3pm; Aug 1, free cheesecake buffet 3-5pm; Aug 2, free samples 9am-6pm. Complete schedule of events

Hot dogs

  • Debra emails: “Vienna beef store on north damen ave north of Fullerton in Chicago.   I bought bags for $10.  Good prices”
  • And Margie suggests: “100 hot dogs, GFS has good prices on all beef hot dogs. They are precooked so you are only heating and putting them in a bun. They also sell the foil sheets you can wrap them in. Use a coupon at GFS for $5 off 50 often in the newspaper if not find a friend with an entertainment coupon book. Buns aren’t cheap there, GO TO ALDI for buns. I know a restaurant owner who buys buns at Aldi its a trade secret I guess. Hope that’s helpful.”

Jewel

  • A find from juli: “Gurnee Jewel has 8 oz pub burgers for $1.00. Thats 16 oz for $2.00!!!!! You can smush it up for any ground beef recipe…… Unless it is a misprint…Gurnee store only.”
  • A heads up from grandma g: “At Jewel today I bought 2 of the Keebler cookies, clearly marked on the shelf at $1.99 ea. After I checked out I checked my receipt and there was no “instant $1 savings” Went to the Service Desk and the woman there informed me that the “instant savings” was the reduction of $1 off each package, thus the $1.99 sale price, but there was no extra money off. What??? Leaves me speechless how the service people don’t understand their own ads and sales. I’ll just go back when someone else is there or ask for the manager I guess, but if the service desk doesn’t get it the manager probably won’t either. Maybe a different Jewel. Yet another reason why I rarely go to Jewel anymore:(“

Kmart

  • Jane warns: “I tried to roll points months back on a toilet seat and ended up returning it because the points did not show up on the 2nd one I bought using points.  I do recall the time they had the Tide/Hanes deal, the Catalinas rolled just fine BUT it did not involve points that time. I would almost bet that this deal on the Downy will not roll but anyone that tries it please report back! Thanks.”

Meijer

  • Rangerdave says: “7/27 through 8/2, all Meijer stores will take an additional 50% off clearance priced electronics. Televisions, tablets, and iPod are excluded from this promotion.”

Menards

  • From rifat: “YMMV Some Menard’s are a PIA on using more than 1 of the same coupon in a single purchase. You might have to do several transactions to do the ZEP deal.”

Online deals

  • From Carol S-T: “Bought these [New Balance shoes] a few weeks ago when they were on sale. Extremely comfortable! Unfortunately, the pink is very bright and the line pattern makes me feel like Spider-Man’s sister, so I only wear them on the treadmill at home.”

Reader requests

  • West is wondering about the pet beds: “Anybody purchase these before? I’m curious of the quality/thickness?”

Kmart money making L’Oreal and free Gillette Fusion shave gel

kmart

This week Kmart is doubling up to five coupons with up to $2.00 face value (so $2.00 coupons double to $4.00) for SYWR members, no minimum purchase required. A couple of you have shared scenarios in Reader Deals (thanks! Keep them coming!), but here’s another couple you can do:

Gillette Fusion Shave Gel

… is $3.99. Use the $2.00/1 coupon in the 6/15 RP, which will double to $3.99 and make it free!

L’Oreal Advanced hair care

There’s a national Catalina deal going on L’Oreal Advanced: Buy two, get $1.50 OYNO; buy three or more, get $3.00 OYNO. So:

  • Buy three L’Oreal advanced shampoos for $4.50 each = $13.50.
  • Use three $2.00/1 from the 6/29 RP, which will double to $4.00 each = $1.50.
  • Get back $3.00 OYNO for a $1.50 money maker!

Got more?

They closed my closest Kmart and I don’t get their ad — if you have been shopping the doubles this week, please share your own great finds in comments. :)

Amazon

  • From focadima: “I read the round house last summer, I enjoyed it.”
  • And Maureen agrees: “I concur, Round House is wonderful.”

Coupons

  • A reminder from julie: “I saw this on Jill’s site.  Check your Wednesday tribute ad wraparound for 3 PG coupons.  $1/1 Herbal Essence Hair Color, B2G1 Free  Buy 2 herbal Essence Shampoo or Conditioner, get a body wash free, and $1/2 Aussie. I don’t get the paper delivered, but I checked the mailed version of the tribune ads and they were on that wraparound as well.”
  • Wendy noticed: “FYI — I was at coupons.com to print the Mitchum coupon, looking for the Starbucks ones for CVS, and on the side was an ad for Mitchum “click here to save $1.00″ — so I was able to print FOUR Mitchum coupons in all. Sweet!”

Jewel

  • Krystle shares: “Just got my $20 Gift card from the McNeil allergy rebate! (This was a $16MM or something like that) So of course i had to go out to do the $15 Budweiser/ and Fresh Meat (need to purchase $15 worth) MIR, found in the Jewel big book. Goes great with the freebie/ $0.01 deals at Jewel, like anther reader commented earlier this week! Buy 4/$10 pun burgers, get 4ct pretzel buns FREE ($2.50 value), and $5.23 worth of chicken breast @2.99/lb. 1 X 24pk bud light cans @13.99, get 1 family size bag of Doritos and 2L bottle of Pepsi for a PENNY! So total with tax $30.85, paid with $20 McNeil gc and the rest cash. Also I had 25 cent back offers through Checkout51 for the Pepsi, hamburger pattis, and buns(+$0.75). So after I also submit for the $15 MIR everything will be FREE, minus the cost of stamps. Had my inlaws over today, and they were amazed at the “free” lunch.”

Kmart

  • From lisa: “K-Mart will double up to a $2.00 coupon (5 each day) starting tomorrow with your SYW card. (7-7). Now typically this is only a $1.00 and you have to spend $25. This time there is no threshold and with a $2.00 coupon there has to be some good deals to be had. Read this on hip to save and she suggests a couple deals. I went thru the ad that ends 7-7 and noticed the big boxes of Kellogg’s Rice Krispies for $3.50. If you have points available from the Kelloggs Rewards Program they have a $1.50 off a box (1000 points for 2 prints). Double that and they are only .50 cents a box. I think I will spend some time scanning the ads and my coupons today but if you come up with a deal please post as I will be going there tomorrow and could use the extra knowledge.”
  • She adds: “The above mentioned Rice Krispies are the treat bars”
  • She also says: “Kmart-I also noticed that they have a P&G deal where you get a OYNO coupon for $10.00 when you spend $30. Team that with the current P& G deal and ultimately you will get $20.00 back ($10 from P & G and $10 from Kmart) on a $30.00 purchase. Not bad and could make for some good tide deals. Have not dived into this yet either as with the holiday coupons took a back seat.”
