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.”

Reader requests

  • Sue emails: “Does anyone know who has Tiki Torch Oil Fuel on clearance (under $5.00)???”
  • Joy is wondering: “Has anyone seen caramel Starbucks K-cups at their CVS, or do they just carry unflavored varieties? Trying to decide whether to try to make it to CVS between my 4 month old’s naps. Thanks in advance for any help!”

Whole Foods

  • Ashley reports: “All but the single serve Rice Dream are at Schaumburg, they no longer carry the single serving ones”
  • April adds: “Last time I didn’t find any of them in Wheaton too.”
  • Pam shares: “the Single serve Rice Dream were not on sale at the Naperville store. They were like $1.69″

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

CVS

  • From feelgood: “Both of these are back on the $10 gas card deal for the week of 6/22- 6/28. Mars Bites 2/$5, Lancaster pouches 2/$6.”
  • Shandelle shares: “Check your CVS store coupons either from the red machine or receipts. I had one for $4 off a Speed Stick Gear deodorant. They’re 2/$8 right now. I stacked with two of the $2 printables from coupons.com and got both free as well as $2 ECB wyb 2! So a money maker.”

Hair services

  • Outlander says: “Great Clips Qs are very often in regular newspaper inserts, and in those junk mail envelopes with coupons that come in the mail. They also take any competitor Qs, so you can use any that you find.”
  • Shandelle responds: “Great Clips will take competitor Qs??? Are you certain? I prefer Great Clips over Super Cuts but SC seems to run coupons in the inserts more often and I almost never get anything from Great Clips even though I give them more business. I had a bad experience at Super Cuts in the city (Wickerpark) a few months ago when we were were still getting winter weather. The lady cutting my hair barely spoke English and just blow dried my hair (then put some gel in it that I didn’t ask for; I just assumed drying your hair was customary since they drown it in water to cut it!!! Especially given it was like 12 degrees outside!!) and they claimed this was the haircut AND a “style” which just pissed me off. I didn’t ask for anything but a trim and cleanup of my layers. They tacked an extra $8 onto my $8.99 coupon haircut. I submitted a complaint on the Super Cuts website and no one ever contacted so me so I guess they don’t care at all..”
  • Anne replies: “Yes, Great Clips accepts competitor coupons. We use them there all the time, and they even have a sign on the front door of ours saying they do.”
  • Outlander adds: “Yes, they definitely do. There’s a sign inside or on the door, I believe. I think it does say maximum discount $3 or $4, can’t remember. But my DH has used Supercuts and Sports Clips Qs there, no problem.”
  • Ashley shares: “If you go to your Jewel they can print a Great Clips coupon off for you if they participate”
  • Shandelle wonders: “How does Jewel print one? Do I just ask at customer service?”
  • John W comments: “Great Clips coupons: I got a $6.99 great clips coupon on the Mariano’s receipt from the one at Lawrence and Damen in Chicago, for the Lincoln Square great clips only.”

Jerry’s

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “Jerry’s has organic strawberries for .69 til Wednesday. They are nice and sweet.

Jewel

  • Found by feelgood: “New winetag booklet found at Jewel on Sutter Home wine. Says: “Save up to $17.00!” No alcohol purchase required manufacturer coupons: $1.00.1 Claussen Pickles (makes them $0.99 each at Jewel wyb 5, until 6/10), $1.00/1 President brie cheese, $1.00/1 Alexia frozen potatoes or French fries, $1.00/2 King’s Hawaiian buns or rolls, $1.00/2 PAM cooking sprays. Mail In Rebates: $2.00 any Sutter Home wine and beef, $10.00 12-pk Pabst Blue Ribbon beer AND $15.01 purchase of meat, produce, charcoal and/or condiments.” He adds: “BTW, found these at the Lemont Jewel. Should be at most other Jewels, too.”

Kmart

  • A tip from Kathy: “Kmart has an offer for a $5 award card and 2,000 points when you buy a $25 gift card from Kmart, limit 2 offers. If you are near a Kmart, pick up these cards which can be redeemed at Sears and get 4,000 points and $10 to spend at Kmart next week.”

Meijer

  • Jenny posts in Hot Deals: “a heads up for those of you going to the elgin meijer. They are all out of the free brut deodorant, and they are STILL out of boneless skinless chicken breast. Ran out last week when it was 1.99/lb so i got a rain check only to find out they are out again today! Also out of cheap ziploc bags… BOO for my trip!”

Reader requests

  • Connie asks: “We moved into a new place and got a new patio set on Sunday from Target (thank you, 40% off patio furniture from Cartwheel!). But we’re missing a grill. DH really wants one since this new place allows them. Has anyone seen a good deal on a charcoal grill? Most of the ones we have seen are $99, and we were hoping to get one for around $50 if possible. All ideas welcome!”
  • An idea from feelgood: “Hi, Connie. In case you missed it, MUM posted a deal on $50 back in points on $50 worth of grilling accessories at Sears, which you could then use towards a grill. Here’s a charcoal grill for under $40, there’s others around $50″
  • A question from rifat: “Does anyone eat Fisher Boy fish sticks at/from Dollar Tree? From what I’ve read, they are not worth the paper/ink to print the coupon that makes them free. I’m usually not choosy.”

Target

  • Amy reports: “Target in Warrenville $2 per lb for ground chuck”
  • A tip from Krystle: “Click sort coupons by ‘newest’. This helps me find coupons faster on Targets website. especially for Hot/New deals that pop up on Sunday mornings.”

Walgreens

  • Krystle says: “If you are shopping Wags and plan to do the booster points coupon (5k + when you spend $25). Don’t forget About the Resolve MIR in the 5/11SS. Made my trip free after everything (BR points, RRs, and MIR).”

sywr

Here’s one Matt sends over. Enter code SYWPTS10 at checkout when shopping at Sears online or at Kmart online to get back $10 in SYWR points on a $20 qualifying order. (You must enter your SYWR number on the bottom right of your checkout screen before you can apply the code.)

It’s also triggering on some items that are just around $10.00, including these men’s New Balance socks priced at just $10.40 each. Sure enough, I threw a pack in my cart and added the code and it’s offering me $10.10 back in points — $10 in bonus points and $.10 for the purchase itself.
