Apps

  • From nilo: “Just an update jingit now has jewel and the option for other. I have tried using other but with jewel receipts, it was not showing up in their list to choose, and they were processed.Also, jingit has a “thanksgiving” icon and it has rebates for butterball turkey, ocean spray cranberries, potatoes, green beans & corn, stuffing & more…I thought i’d post since jingit is not an app I read about that often.”

In-store deals

  • A tip from Outlander: “sign up for Payless texts. You’ll always get discount codes. This is the latest one: PAYLESS: $10 off any $25 in-store purchase + up to 50% off Boots- Final Weekend! Use 251451957 or view here (Exp.11/23/14) Reply HELP=help”
  • From susie: “i just received an email from carson’s for $50 off $100 purchase or $25 off $50 purchase. In the fine print it says all purchases count towards the $100 but $50 of that purchase must be regular or sale( and this includes their other clearance thats not yellow or black dot). It might make for some good sales”

Kroger

  • Suzann shares: “Kroger is running a deal on gift cards this week–get 4 times the value in fuel points. I get Amazon cards– just moving money from one pocket to the other.”

Mariano’s

  • SoapboxTray reports: “I was at the Vernon Hills Mariano’s yesterday and they have 18 oz. Quaker 1 minute or regular oatmeal canisters for $2. Print the $1. off from the Target site (man. Q) and get for $1. or FREE on Double Daze.”

Meijer

  • Something to look for from feelgood: “For the Kraft chunk cheese deal, check your local Centrella ad to see if you have a Kraft $3.00/6 manufacturer coupon. Found one in my Chipains ad. Buy 6 chunk cheese for $12, use one $3.00/6 coupon. Pay $9.00 and get a $4.00 catalina, for a net cost of $5.00, or $0.83 each.”

Reader requests

  • From Ann in Hot Deals: “Has anyone seen any great deals for Lego Batman 3 for XBOX360? I have a little guy who has this game at the top of his list. Thanks.”

Target

  • J. Alan says: “No signage or GC at target in Broadview two days ago but the [GE LED bulbs] deal was working at the Hillside location.” Yep!
  • Pam adds: “I *accidentally bought both a 60W and a 40W (meant to buy both 60W but somehow inadvertently grabbed a 40w). I DID still get the GC.” Good to know!

Aldi

  • A find from Jordan: “Can’t speak to quality, but as of yesterday, cranberries were being clearanced at the Oakbrook Terrace Aldi for 49¢.”

Coupons

  • Judy S. advises: “Choose at least 1 other coupon to print or the [Barilla Plus] pasta coupon prints at the bottom of the page with an ink wasting picture above it.”
  • She also offers another tip, if the Covermate coupon is printing too large: “Make sure it’s not set to ‘fit to page.'”

Donations

  • An idea from Kari O.: “For that price I REALLY hope people consider buying a jacket, even if they don’t have kids, because there are LOTS of cold children who would really appreciate a donated winter coat. My family has limited funds, but my daughter fits in her jacket from last year, so I am going to buy one for her classmate. I went on a pumpkin picking field trip with her class and saw one little boy who was still wearing sandals and only a hoody because his parents couldn’t afford warmer clothes. I volunteer at the school, I know I can slip this into his cubby during class, but I know there’s a few organizations collecting jackets too.”
  • Another option, from jess: “Merlins 200,000 Miles stores also participate in a winter clothing drive. Snug Hugs for Kids. I bought ten hats last week at The Childrens Place for $0.80 each and dropped them off along with everything our kids have outgrown. They take all types of winter wearc for ages 0-18, baby blankets, and clothing as well!”
  • And Sara shares that Jewel is doing a Bears coats drive.
  • A suggestion from barb: “Call your kids grade school or school board offices. Many school secretaries know of someone within the school (or district) in need. Sometimes they will give you a size range and gender and if you drop it off at the office, the secretary will quietly put the kids name and phone number in it and call the kid down to the office saying that this was found and it’s their coat. We did this 4 timed from old navy, Macy sales last year. It’s fun knowing someone in need right in your area got immediate help. Cause burr it’s cold out right now.”

Exercise equipment

  • Suzann shares: “I had a gym quality treadmill about 20 years ago—I got it through the catalog Damark(called something else know). It folded up and was not too obtrusive but I had a huge master bedroom. Back then I think I paid about $500. Eventually about 7 years into ownership we both got bored and I sold it for about half what I paid. I would look at Greensheet or Craigslist for a used treadmill.”
  • Beth says: “Sears is great for fitness equipment- do not go with chicago home fitness- their service plan is terrible! Sears is great and service technicians are very knowledgeable. It is highly recommended to have once a year tune ups on equipment. Sears has been great with our elliptical! Sure they would be just as great with treadmill.”
  • But Samantha adds: “LOL -we bought ours from Chicago Home Fitness. I actually thing it’s a good place to go to find out more about treadmills as the people working at Dicks, Sports Authority don’t usually know too many details. Consumer reports often reviews them -so that’s a good place to start. We spent about $600 -It does what it needs to but probably not a good enough model for serious runner. I like to walk/run on it. Craigslist might be a good bet if you can find near you -they are heavy to transport!”
  • Advice from Michelle on Facebook: “I bought mine 2 yrs ago on Black Friday. There are a few things to think about, where are you putting it? Want it delivered and assembled? How heavy duty do you need? My answer was yes on all so I did a middle to high grade precor, I think it was at Chicago home & fitness. We needed something that was guaranteed to withstand my husband running:) . The only deal they had running bc of bf was the mat you need to have under it if you keep on carpet and basement. With that, I highly recommend if you are putting it anywhere remotely difficult to bring into your house, delivery and assembly:)”

Gift cards

  • Pam shares: “You can also get Chili’s GCs at Thorton’s 20% off through the end of November! Those seem to be in stock more than the Amazon that I am still hoping to find!”

Kroger

  • Something to look for from Suzann: “Kroger also sells [LaBrea bread] and when it show up on the oops we baked too much rack, they all come home with me!! So tasty.”

Meijer

  • A reminder from Outlander: “If anyone still wanted to buy those bottles of Veev vodka and Vita cocktails, they are still on sale at Meijer. Today is the last day on Ibotta, and until 11/20 on Snap. So I finally did it today. :)”
  • From feelgood: “Eckrich smoked sausage is also $2.00 at Meijer 11/20 – 11/26 , so $1.00 after coupon there.”

Reader requests

  • From Claribel on Facebook: “Any pointers for this first virgin Peapod user…I have no interest in braving the cold this week….it’s going to be a LONG winter!” Check out the current top ten here. The new sales start Saturday. One little tip from me: If you don’t need your groceries right away, you can start an order now and select a date Sunday or later, then on Saturday add stuff from the new sale while keeping the things you added during the current sale.
  • Heidi posts on Facebook: ” Hi–I am looking for deals on the movies Cars and Cars 2 in Blu Ray. Don’t want to spend more than $10 each and would love to find them cheaper than that,”

Shop n Save

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “Even better at Shop n Save free when you use the coupon since the cranberries will be $1.”

Starbucks

  • If you snagged the Groupon, something else to look for from Kari O.: “Holiday Drinks are Buy 5, Get the 6th one FREE. They give you a card and you collect stickers. The promo cards feature the new drinks, but is valid on the yummiest of all: Egg Nog latte.”
  • She also says: “Oooh, my rewards coupon is 50% off a Holiday Drink!” Check your emails for personalized rewards! Rachel and my husband both got 3 bonus stars with a holiday drink purchase. I got a $3 credit wyb five…most likely because I bought one yesterday.
  • Something to check from feelgood: “For those with American Express Cards, sign in to your account online and check AMEX Offers For You (towards the bottom right). Mine had a “Spend $10 or more, Get $5 back” at Starbucks stores. Also found offers for Spend $50 Get $10 back at JCPenney, and Spend $50 Get $10 back at Office Depot/Office Max.”

Tribune

  • Monique posts on Facebook: “Note for lapsed Chicago Tribune subscribers. I got a neat postcard in the mail today. As a former subscriber they will be giving me the Thanksgiving paper and Sundays 11/23 – 12/28 for FREE. I typically subscribe mid-Nov thru end of the year. I meant to resubscribe last weekend. Procrastination paid off!”

Walmart

  • SmartShopper shares: “Last time this Covermate variety coupon was available, I printed it (and yes, mine printed huge too). Took it to Walmart in Rolling Meadows, IL. The variety pack was indeed $1.98 so it was FREE after coupon. The cashier studied the coupon and even called over the Head Cashier, but they did put it through.”

Whole Foods

  • Pam comments: “Yay! Was able to get Zevia free today! I bought 4 six packs, which the cashier told me she was giving me the case discount for. That made each one $2.70. I used the $2/1 IPs with the $1.50/2 WF coupons. Also, got Back to Nature crackers for only $1 each (used $1/1 WF coupon from last month Whole Deal plus $1/1 coupon from this month’s Mambo sprouts.) They do have several gluten free varieties as well, for those of you who prefer. In the end, I got 3 boxes of different crackers and 4 six packs of Zevia for like $3.69 out the door (in addition to the dirty look from the person behind me, LOL). The normal price of one six pack of Zevia is $5.99 there!”

Activities

  • Maria shares: “Something to do this weekend…..This Saturday 10/18 and Sunday 10/19, The Chicago Architecture Foundation is sponsoring Open House Chicago. It’s a free festival that offers behind-the-scenes access to more than 150 buildings across the city. More info at www.openhousechicago.org

Amazon

  • Don posts on Facebook: “I read most of the reviews from several sources as I have been looking for a Humidifier and although a refurb, I decided to take a chance on this one [$49.99 shipped] – I just thought I would mention this.”

Caputo’s

  • Kelly reports: “The new Angelo Caputos in Carol Stream had 2 POUND bags of baby Carrotsi for 79 cents. Use 25 cents off from Checkout 51 (if it stays) and get them for 54 cents or 27 cents per pound. Even without Checkout 51, it’s still a great price. Also, the blackberries on sale were NOT Driscolls brand and they rang up incorrectly at $2.49 (should be $1.89). I caught it and they amended it easily. ” Unfortunately, the carrots offer did not come back today.

Halloween

  • Alicia comments: “1. It’s my first year with trick or treaters and I’m super excited, but I just started noticing how ridiculously expensive candy is this year! My mom suggested getting some glow sticks instead, which I thought was a great idea. The kids are already getting lots of candy, and these should still be glowing the next day. Michael’s has them on sale this week, too: a 50-pack of bracelets for $4.99, B1G1 1/2 off. 2. On that note, anyone know when trick or treating is happening within city limits this year? I know sometimes it varies by town or neighborhood. Couldn’t find much online about it.”

Kroger

  • From Lisa: “I looked 4 Starbucks coupons today too as Kroger has an awesome deal on both the K Cups and bags. These are in the Bourbonnais Store and are on select flavors (found in the coffee aisle not the clearance section). They are 3.99 which is an awesome deal by itself but if you buy 3 you save 3 so only 2.99. I had some $4/2 coupons (IP,s) that were posted on krazykroger so I paid .99 ea but was looking to buy more. If you have some IP’s now is the time to use them. I have no clue if you could find this in another location but they had quantity in Bourbonnais. They even had some on and end cap by the coffee right by the registrars.”

Mariano’s

  • DON says: “Organic cinnamon is a very good price as well” It is $2.00 for the 1.5 oz jar.

Meijer

  • A find from Liza: “I seen [Soda Stream] in clearance yesterday at the Meijers on 95 for 27.00″
  • Pam shares: “This ‘Happy Dance’ credit go’s to Jill Cataldo… Just wanted to let you know cuz I didn’t see it posted here…. Suave Shampoo & Conditioners, Lotions and Deodorant are on sale $1.39 WYB 5 ($1.50/1 in 9/28 RP) Free Suave Stylers and Treatments are on sale too $1.39 WYB 5 ($2.00/1 in 9/28RP) Free Purine Dog or puppy chow 4-4.4lb ($1/1 7/27 RP)or cat chow ($1/1 8/17RP ($3.99 WYB 4, stack w Target $5/2 9/21SS .49 cents ea Purine Begging party poppers dog treats $4.99 WYB 4 ($2/1 9/7SS) stack w Target $5/2 9/21SS .49 cents ea Wishing everyone a little ‘Happy Dance’ today ;)

Online deals

  • From me, on the Ninja blender: “Ooh, this is very similar to the one I have. It looks just slightly cosmetically different, and the number is different though the watts are the same. I absolutely LOVE this thing. It handles whatever I put in there. Smoothies were smooth, margaritas amazing, mojo marinade was super quick, and breadcrumbs easily from a rock solid baguette. The single serve cups are also very convenient. It is easy to clean but you have to be careful because it is incredibly sharp.”

Reader requests

  • Barb B asks: “Locking for the best price for contact lenses. Any recommendations?”
  • VB responds: “I order from walgreens.com. I always checkout retailmenot.com to check for codes. Occasionally a 25% off code is released so look up future ad scans to see if you should wait. I also use cash back sites to increase savings. They have a verification process but the longest I have had to wait was maybe 5-6 to get my contacts.”
  • One from Gale: “I have a dear Jewish friend that is celebrating her birthday this coming Sunday. She hinted that she wanted a new Afikoman Bag. I called several Judaica stores and find that they are closed to celebrate Sukkot until Sunday. Anyone know of a store that I can get one at?”
  • A question from Jay: “I’ve never heard of raise before or have used it. Sounds neat. Have you used it in the past without any trouble?” I have a few times with no problems.

Resale

  • Alicia shares: “VIllage Discount Outlet on Milwaukee near Western (and it looks like some of their related stores, too: villagediscountoutlet.com) has 1/2 off everything in the store October 25th and 26th. The store is HUGE and has really reasonable prices (cheaper than Goodwill, for sure). Most t-shirts were between $2-4, decent kitchen stuff priced around $4, etc.”

Target

  • From Shirley: “Here is what I did: 2 stayfree, 2 Tresemme keratin shampoo, 2 Tresemme keratin conditioner and 2 Tresemme keratin heated treatment. $4.99 x 2 + $4.09 x 2 (PM online price) + $4.99 x 2 + $6.99 x 2 = $42.12 – 2 x $1/1 IP for stayfree – 2 x $6.99 IP for Tresemme keratin heated treatment (It was available to print last month- buy shampoo & conditioner get heated treatment free) Paid $26.14, got back $25 in gift cards for a net cost of $1.14. If you have 3 x $5/2 Tresemme MQ, that is even better.” Although the coupons are limit two, so having three may not matter.

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

Best Buy

  • Ann shares: “Recently bought 4 kitchen appliances at Best Buy to get the rewards. However because we moved to a home without appliances and Best Buy rep tried to “trick” computer each appliance was delivered a different day. Weeks apart. The fridge, after ordered, was in their backroom (without our name on it) and it was sold!!! (GE SLATE) Waited 6 weeks for a new one. Be careful.”

CVS

  • From liz: “At cvs..If you have a magic machine coupon expires today from a week or 2 ago.. $3.00 off 3 snack twisters which are 2.50 this week…Combine with cvs 1 off 2 store coupon get online..from their site…Combine with 1.50 off 3 Hershey coupon manu. And get 1.00 reward back…who hoo. 1.00 for 3 bags” I think you can only use one store coupon, so the CRT or the printable, but still a great deal at three bags for $2.00 if you have the CRT. Mine printed on Friday and is good through 10/10.

Food 4 Less

  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “Just found out that Food4Less in Bolingbrook is shutting it’s doors on November 8th :( Reason being they are not making enough money. How that is even possible I’m not sure, as there is always a line at the registers.”

Jewel

  • From Krystle: “@ Jewel, Fleishmans Simply Homemade Cornbread is on sale for $2. Use the $1/1 mfg from the 9/14RP for $1 per box.”

Kroger

  • Heidi reports: “Kroger has [Seattle’s Best] on sale now for $4.99. It might depend on what region you’re in though.”

Meijer

  • Ashley reports on the Dove Catalina/instant savings deal: “It is working beautifully at Meijer.”
  • She adds: “Also remember the [Dove Target printable] which you can use on the two you’re buying!”
  • She also shares: “Starting 10/12 Meijer cleaning products: Buy $5 get $1, Buy $10 get $3, Buy $15 get $5″

Reader requests

  • From maggie: “So is there any [Pledge floor care] in particular that you really like for your wooden floors? We are about to tear up our carpet and use the wood floor underneath so I’m not too familiar with this stuff… This is great timing but I’d like to see if there is one in particular you would recommend. Thank you!”
  • And letsshop asks: “I am looking for laminated floor cleaner &shine ,hope they have a good one ! anyone know for sure ?”

Target

  • Eun points out: “I have a $1 Pledge offer on checkout51 too.”
  • Krystle comments: “Ok consider this a cornbread post… 3 deals in all. 1st @ Target, buy Krusteaz Honey Cornbread $1.52 and use the $0.55 mfg from the 10/5SS and earn $0.75 back from Ibotta. So $0.22 per box but this deal gets better, there is a bonus $0.50 offer if you redeem this offer twice (so I guess FREE after ibotta bonus offer).”
  • And she shares: “Also @ Target All You magazine for $0.69 when you stack the $1/1 mfg printable on coupons.com and the $1/1 Target printable coupon.”

Ultra Foods

  • Another cornbread option from Krystle: “Lastly use the $3/2 Bobs Red Mill mfg @ Ultra for $1.39 per. I now have enough cornbread mix to last me through winter :)”
