*** 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.

Amazon

  • Suzann comments on the Fancy Feast cans deal: “That is a deal–I have not seen that price on Fancy Feast cans in a long time(probably a decade) and that was when a store was closing.”

Children’s Place

Focus groups

  • One from northwesternly: “For you “Super Couponers” who can spare the time, just saw this on Craigslist: (posted shortly after midnight, Tues 7/28). $300 for a 4 hr In-Home interview on Super Couponing. “Do you regularly clip coupons and find online deals? Do you have a great way to store and organize the coupons you’ve found? We’d like to learn more from you about how you find the best deals.” Jump & Associates is looking for you. To see more and apply –> http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/etc/5144393988.html — They seem legit; located at 1 N LaSalle, Suite 1800, Chgo.”

Jewel

  • On the Buddig coupon stack, Linda comments: “I had the $1/5 coupon in my my is account, and used the checkout51 offer the other day. They were originally $.79 each at Jewel.”

Mariano’s

  • From letsshop on the $1.00 Crest toothpaste question: “My Mariano’s in Western Springs happened to have about a dozen left at $1 they are not going to carry that particular flavor of paste any longer ,so I was able to buy all the amount that he had left .”

School supplies

  • On the earlier question on brand name school supplies, Rebecca comments: “Yes, when a teacher’s list specifies the brand, it’s for a reason – because they have found it’s the brand that works best, and, as someone noted, because it’s more than likely that it’s all going in a group container anyway. Crayola is always tops. Stay away from Rose Art crayons, and don’t do generic pencils. Your kid will spend more time re-sharpening than writing, LOL.”
  • TracyS concurs: “DO NOT USE THE MARKERS FROM MENARDS!!!! They didnt even all work straight out of the package. As for black pens at Menards, I found some in the Niles/morton grove store.”
  • And Karen says: “The Menards in Hanover Park had plenty of stock for both blue and black pens.”

Target

  • A find from SoapboxTray: “Target has a 20% off Save on clearance car seats, strollers and play yards All clearance items in Dept 30/Class 9. I found a $179. Safety 1st convertible car seat marked down to $50ish and after 20% $43. Can’t find something this nice even on Craigslist for this price. They had some really nice clearanced play yards at the Lake Zurich store and strollers.”
  • A question on the Cartwheel pop deals from ellen: “i have 2 $3.00/1 12 pk coke from mcr. has anyone used coke coupons with this deal? I am wondering if I would get the full $3.00 off 2 of the 12 packs and if it would take the 35% off the full amount or after the coupons.”
  • And from Kari O.: “Yes, Crayola is specifically listed because of its high quality. My teacher friend was complaining about generic “washable” markers that stained kids and had parents upset. Also, it helps prevent parents from buying special hello kitty or spiderman themed markers and then watching the kids freak out when they are all mixed into one group marker bucket. PS: I know you are talking about markers, but in general I believe in using high quality art supplies. http://wgntv.com/2015/07/09/group-finds-asbestos-in-childrens-crayons-toy-crime-lab-kits/ I know it’s pretty unlikely but I would rather not be the parent who buys the cool TMNT crayons instead of Crayola and accidentally exposes the children to asbestos.”

Whole Foods

  • On the Illinois-only Whole Foods deals to celebrate the new Evanston store opening, Judy shares: “There is a $1/1 MC for 16 oz glass bottles of Honest Iced Tea in the Spring Mambo Sprouts booklet that Fresh Thyme gave out making it free. The coupon expires 7/31.”

Back-to-school Fairs

Hmart

  • From MamaHan: “HMart in IL has a dozen Extra Large Eggs on sale for 2/$2.88, limit two when you use your HMart card. (No charge, just sign up in store.) Chicken drumsticks are also on sale for $.48/lb. Sale runs from 7/24-7/30.
    http://www.hmart.com/company_new/coupon_event_enlarge.asp?loc=IL&num=&lan_type=eng has the online weekly ad for this time period. There are locations in Naperville, Hoffman Estates, and Niles.”

Mariano’s

  • Karen has a question: “I went to Mariano’s today and didn’t see any Crest toothpaste for 1.00. The cheapest I found on sale were priced 1.49 and most were 2.50 or 3.00. Can someone please share which specific ones are on sale for 1.00?”
  • And Caroline asks: “Does anyone know how long the Crest deal will be $1 at Mariano’s?”

Menards

  • On the Menards back-to-school deals, Diane asks: “Has anyone found a Menards with black pens? (The one I went to only had blue pens.)”
  • And Holly asks: “First time shopping for school supplies. If the list says Crayola washable markers I assume there is a reason it says Crayola?? Anyone out there ever used this brand Menards is advertising? Is Crayola really that much better? $0.79 is calling my name!”

Walgreens

  • From seachicago: “I bought something at Walgreens last week (milk & school supplies, I think), and the register printed out a 75 cent coupon for Butterball turkey bacon, which worked out great this week. Check and see if you got one, too!”

Whole Foods

  • On the Illinois Whole Foods deals to celebrate the new Evanston store, peaches comments: “Hi- I live in Evanston, and so I am sure I will check out the new store. They are supposed to have a wine bar, and the store is going to be larger than the two other WF stores in Evanston. The sale definitely underwhelms me though. Hopefully they will have some additional grand opening specials that are only taking place at the new store. Valli’s grand opening sale was much better, but the Evanston Valli store in general underwhelms me”

Jewel

  • Heads up from LauraC: “Watch your Hormel Pork coupons. I went this morning and they wouldn’t scan with the pork chops on sale. The coupon in MyMixx didn’t deduct either.”

Mariano’s

  • Something to look for from Kitty: “Marianos has a new coupon booklet for their 5th anniversary….a bunch of store coupons good July 16-29.”

Prescriptions

  • In response to yesterday’s generic Lipitor question, from Debbie: “I get my generic Lipitor (Atorvastatin) at Meijer (Champaign and Bloomington/Normal do this) for FREE! You can only do a 30-day supply at a time, though.”
  • And Don mentions: “Peaches, I am sure you know this but just a mention that depending on reason or way of picking up medicare there may be a time limit to purchase Med D…… If it is because of discontinued employment – retired etc… you have 63 days before the penalty phase begins and a few other things to know….

ALDI

  • Kitty shares: “At Niles Aldi today,  egg price on shelf was $2.19.  They rang up at $1.89.”

Chicago Tribune

Contacts

  • Kari O. has a suggestion re: yesterday’s question about contacts: “For contacts I go to Sam’s Club. I called around and they had the cheapest flat rate for a contacts exam and the boxes of my preferred contacts were cheapest. I like acuvue 2, which is what I have had for years, but the dr will always give me tons (I mean TONS) of samples to try different brands. Usually it’s a two visit thing, so your son will try out different kinds for a month before ordering a years supply. The best price there is a years supply. PS: I always get my prescription written out too and go ahead and order glasses online with whatever amazing deal Rachel posts. :)”
  • And Debbz suggests: “HI I did my contact lens exam at America’s Best. Contact exam is usually 20 -40 more than just glasses anywhere you go. You want to get BOTH glass and contact exam for the RX. I paid $99 for 3 years of unlimited eye exams. Its with their Eye Exam Club. Comes in handy when you have an odd rx like I do. I would highly recommend it for someone just starting out with contacts. Most Drs will adjust your rx once for free but its nice to be able to go back after a few months with no charge. Even if you get just 1 exam a yr you are doing good for the price. I found the best price for contacts were online at Walgreens if they have a 20% off deal. You get a free trial pair at the Dr but Id also recommend starting with a small order when you do order. Its cheaper to buy in bulk but you could get stuck with a brand that might not be the best fit for you. HTH!!” Note: 20% off contacts online at Walgreens with code CONTACTLENS20.
  • From Artie: “I second America’s Best. I went there for decades and the multi year free eye exams can’t be beat. They also correctly diagnosed cataracts during a routine checkup and gave me a list of ophthalmologists to see. The upside of getting cataracts is that my ophthalmologist corrected my vision during the surgery at no additional charge. As a result I no longer have to wear contacts and have perfect vision.”

Dunkin Donuts

  • Lisa is curious about the free smoothie coupon on today’s Chicago Tribune: “Does anyone know what size it’s for? It doesn’t say on mine.”

Jewel

  • A question from letsshop on the Miller rebate: “Is everyone buying lite beer or regular ? does it work on regular too”
  • And Jane shares that: “It’s really low cal for a beer, 64 is the name because a bottle is only 64 calories! I think a regular beer has more than twice the calories. We stick a bottle in the freezer for 15 or so minutes and put lime in it and its awesome on a hot summer day. (especially after mowing the grass!)”
  • Rhonda says: “mine rebate says 1 12pk or larger bottles or cans, purchase between 5/18/15- 7/31/15 max. 1 per address hope this helps”
  • And a find from Jane: “Just spotted 99c cherries at Jewel (Bourbonnais) tags say good thru 7-15! Check your store to see if they are on sale as well. I’m guessing this is like the raspberries they had on sale a few weeks back, probably ordered too many and they do go bad quite fast.”

Mariano’s

  • From Kitty: “Got this today at Marianos. ..buy Morningstar Farms veggie food products between 7/13/15 and 8/9/15 and save up to $4.  Buy 3 get $2.  Buy 4 get $3.  Buy 5 or more get $4 OYNO.” This is also running at Meijer — probably national!

Menards

  • An addition to this week’s Menards deals, from Jane: “There is $1 coupon on coupons.com for the Goof Off to print. I know because that was one of the ones that printed on its own for me the other day!”

Target

  • On the Target toy clearance watch, Lisa comments: “The Target in Algonquin had a bunch on clearance today. Starting at 30%off. Found some at 50% off + the 20% cartwheel Got a mega blocks Halo set for $27, normally $62! I got a big chunk of birthday & Christmas shopping done!”
  • And Sabrina shares: “Maybe this has already been mentioned, but I purchased some clearance toys using the Cartwheel 20% coupon along with some regular/shelf price toys. The 20% came off all of the toys, including the regularly priced ones.”
  • On this week’s diaper deal, Alani shares that: “The Huggies deal printed with a 5 off your next purchase Catalina-that in addition to the gift card was a nice surprise!”
