Amazon

  • On the Hello Kitty cutters, lisa says: “ooh and I think I paid 1.36 for mine a while back! these are super cute and just yesterday we made sugar cookie sandwiches (with frosting in the middle of 2 cookies) with these for my daughters bday! very cute!”

Dollar Tree

  • Lora says, of the mini LED reading lights: “Just an FYI, they carry these at most Dollar Tree stores also. My kids love theirs!!”

Freebies

  • Christy posts in Hot Deals: “Snapfish is currently giving 100 free prints per mongh for a year if you download their app.”

Home Depot

  • A find from kelly: “Home Depot Carol Stream has Raid Ant and Roach Killer on sale this week for $2.88. With coupon, it’s $.88.”

Jewel

  • Shandelle reports: “Also I noticed this week that Jewel registers are printing out some pretty decent high value catalina coupons. I always go through self scan and yesterday and today I received: $1.50 off 1 Ultimate Hamburger Helper (Exp 5/21), $1.50 off 1 box of Chocolate Toast Crunch or Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Crunch Cheerios (Exp 5/20), $1 off 1 Campbell’s skillet or slow cooker sauce (Exp 7/15), and two $1 off 1 Philadelphia cream cheese tubs! They are all manufacturer catalinas, too, so you could take them elsewhere such as Walmart or whatever other stores will accept the ones that have Jewel’s logo on it.”

Loyalty programs

  • Sent over by feelgood: “Log in to your Starbucks account at www.starbucks.com/account/signin Scroll to the the bottom of the Rewards+ Dashboard, Click Start Now button and then click watch the C.A.F.E. Practices video to receive the bonus. You must stay on the Starbucks page while doing the activities and the redirect prompt will show up to register your completion. Must sign up between 4/23-4/29.”
  • He also emails: “Win Free Redbox codes from Conagra

Magazines

  • Sara comments: “Just read that Ladies Home Journal is shutting down. Another printed media victim in this digital age.”

Mariano’s

  • Sara says: “It looks like the new Mariano’s on Sheridan & Foster opened on Tuesday. Can anyone confirm that’s true?”
  • Christina answers: “Yes, they did. I know someone who went and someone who works there :)”

Menards

  • Something to check your Checkout51 for, from Tori: “Apparently not everyone got $1 back on any variety, any size Flipz this week, but if you did get it the 5oz bag of Flipz are on sale for $1 at Menards through Saturday (4/26). Or I saw them a few days ago at Dollar Tree (south Naperville, 111th St & Rt 59), but I’m not sure of the size. Free Flipz.”

Product reviews

  • Suzann was not a fan of Ten soda: “Reason is in my opinion, they taste awful. We decided the 7 UP10 tasted like dishwater- the taste you get when someone has not rinsed a glass well. Of all the flavors, RC10 was the best. Just our opinion.”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle is wondering: “For those who use Shopkick, I noticed one show up to receive 1000 kicks for scanning any fuel-efficient Ford vehicle. lol so what are you supposed to scan? Anyone try this? I mean, cars don’t have barcodes.. does the VIN work? The nearest Ford dealer to me in the city is like 8 miles away so I’m not sure if this will be more trouble than its worth. I googled and found all sorts of people wondering the same thing and saying the car salesmen had no clue what they were talking about. Apparently this is an offer only for the greater Chicago area.”
  • Amanda asks: “Any one know anything about Glen Ellyn Dump Day this year? Is it happening?”
  • And jane responds: “I just discovered that Staples will recycle all your old electronics, tvs, and batteries. In case that’s what you need to get rid of.”
  • Artie adds: “Here is a huge list of where to recycle Registered Residential E-Waste Collection Sites I need to get rid of one or two 25in tube TVs. Anyone know of a place that would pick them up at my home for a free or at a low cost?” I would love to know this as I have a 32″ that needs to go!

Rugs

  • A warning from Amy on ordering rugs online: “Be careful, be very very careful. IF your expecting fringe on the end, there is none. The pile is very synthetic feeling. Very disappointed with the online rugs I ordered, but I have to remember I am ordering sight unseen – rug unfelt.”
  • Kari O. comments: “Another cheap option for area rugs with more variety is a local company called Carpet Concepts in Round Lake. She binds carpet remenants and sells them for $40 flat. The sizes vary from 4×7 to 9×7. In the nice weather she puts a cart out by Circuit dr which is off Rollins but you can also call her shop too and ask if she has anything you’re looking for.”

Target

  • Shandelle says: “Target has California Pizza Kitchen pizzas on price cut for $5 each (reg $6.19). You can use the $2/2 Target printable and two $1.50 manufacturer bricks printables from the CPK site (Not sure the bricks link is still working or it may be out of prints now) to get both for $5.”

Walmart

  • Tina shares: “If you are too far from Ultra for price matching, Montgomery Market also has [Hamburger Helper] for 88¢. However, the ad says ‘While supplies last’, will WalMart allow the match with that wording? Or just not show the ad? ;-)”
  • Another allergy rebate idea, From Sandy: “At Walmart } Buy 2 Benadril Allergy 24 tabs @ 4.44 = 8.88 and one Kleenex ultra soft 75 count for 1.57 = 10.45 Use $3.00/ 2 Sudafed adult PE, Sudafed children’s, Benadryl, Children’s Benadryl, Tylnol sinus, Visine or Neosporin Ecxema Essentials product (SS 04/13 ) 10.45 – 3.00 = 7.45 oop = a big fat $12.55 MM !!”
  • Tamara adds: “Shopmium also has $.50 off on Kleenex”
  • From Shandelle: “I noticed in Ibotta there is $1 back on a 5.3 oz Yoplait greek yogurt cup (any flavor but excludes Greek 100) which is a Walmart exclusive rebate. These are 10 for $10 at Jewel right now. Not sure what Walmart sells this product for, but I plan to price match Jewel if they’re higher for a free yogurt. :)”

Reader deals 4/16/14

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

AAA

  • Megan posts in Hot Deals: “I think it’s worth it – we use it on hotel deals (it’s almost always cheaper than any other price for a hotel) and towing/jumpstarting cars.”
  • And jen likes it too: “I have been a member of AAA for 5 years. Not only is it great to have for cars when they go out of warranty but there are great store and travel discounts as well.”
  • As does theresa: “AAA membership and can use the service even if a passenger in someone else’s car. Nice added teenager on and then if car issue can always call. Love the discounts at hotels and really have not used the restaurant discounts. Also like the free maps and books. I like them in my hand sometimes not just in electronics”
  • But jennyh shares: “BEWARE AAA! I was a member for over 5 years. The one time i needed a tow it was -10 degrees at 8 oclock at night (on randall road just north of St. charles). It was really really cold and my husband had a flat. I thought, “Finally! I get to use AAA for what we bought the membership for!” We called the number on the back of the card only to recieve an automated message that “because of a high volume of calls they are unable to take any service calls. Sorry.” And. Click. Left us in the lurch with very little phone battery in the cold (this was a few years ago and we didn’t have smartphones to find a tow company on our phone). I will never be a member again after that. Like theresa says, “if there is a car issue you can always call” …. but don’t expect to get help. Also I have heard from others that their pool of tow trucks from companies they dispatch from are terribly slow. A person I know has spent hours waiting for a tow on the expressway (and not because of traffic back ups either).”
  • Nora says: “I’ve had AAA for nearly 30 years and wouldn’t live without it. That being said, they ARE terribly slow during blizzards and frigid weather (below zero) for obvious reasons – they get thousands of calls from people with dead batteries (and can’t possibly get to everyone within 15 or 20 minutes). Admittedly, that sucks, but it’s also fairly unusual. Most of the time, their response time is great and the providers they use are extremely professional.”
  • An alernative from Artie: “You can add road service to almost all car insurance policies at a fraction of the cost of AAA. I pay about $5.00 every 6 months for it on my GEICO policy. I used them once last year for a dead battery. They estimated the time to come out at 1 hour. 1 hour later they arrived and jumped my battery.”

Amazon

  • An endorsement from Caroline: “If any of your readers are wondering about the quality I’ll say that the scarves thst you have posted and I have ordered are of very nice quality and have been happy with every one of them.”

Eurofresh

  • Francesca found: “Eurofresh has farmland bacon for $2.99 if you saved your internet printables I think NLA”

Jo-Ann

  • From Julie in Hot Deals: “FYI – the JoAnn Fabric store in Bourbonnais has Easter baskets, eggs and other decor at 60% off. :-)”

Meijer

  • From Ashley: “Also through today only Greenworks All Purpose Cleaner is $0.50 each with the $1/1 peelies on the bottles, the $1/each mperks store coupon, and price cut”

Mariano’s

  • Soapboxtray shares: “I used some older IPs that I am not sure are still around, but if you have them or they still are: Hawaiian Punch Aloha $2.39 and used $1. IP Double Daze for 39¢ drink. Minute Maid Boxes 10 pack 100% Juice $3.19 used $1. IP Double Daze for $1.19 juice boxes. Farmland Bacon Apple Smoked is price cut $2.99 (just that variety) used $1. IP Double Daze for 99¢ bacon. De Waffelbakkers Mini buttermilk pancakes $3.29 used $1. IP for $1.29 pancakes.”
  • She adds: “PS. I also noticed they had bags of the Farmland cubed ham for 3.99 regular price. Bacon other varieties is $4.99.”

Menards

  • Liza found: “At menards they have clorox 2 laundry soap for 2/3 and it is q out there for 2 off which makes them free and oxi clean laundry soap a dollar which makes them free with q”
  • Jane wonders: “which menards? is it just a closeout or they may have them at others you think?”

Reader requests

  • From Kristin on Facebook: “Can someone help me? I just got a Costco membership. They run instant savings on a handful of items for the month. If there it states a quantity limit, is that a per membership or per transaction? Thanks!”
  • Laura is wondering: “I was driving by the closed down Dominicks in Merrionette Park tonight and saw a sign that told the Merrionette Park shoppers to get ready for the Jewel opening soon. Does anyone have any information on if they are going to close the Alsip store, or are they just adding another store to the mix?”

Sears

  • Something to check for, from Matt: “Sears sent me a free apparel coupon today for the Sears Outlet store. Did anyone else get one?”

Target

  • Shandelle shares: “Also for anyone still doubting Target because of their issue last year… I never noticed any fraudulent charges on my account. Like 6 months later, PNC decided to issue me a new card out of nowhere. I monitored my account closely and never saw anything unauthorized. Target also offered credit monitoring to Red Card holders, as well.. I accepted. I have had no problems at all to date. I just save lots and lots of money. :)”
  • Jane reports: “I went to Target this morning and they still had signs up for the $3.49 Starbucks, had a few dark roasts, yet scanning at $12.99. I would have bought them to use towards my $50 but they were out of most of my list. I’m going back Friday, but assume the signs for the coffee will be down by then.” Signs were not up at Hillside and the coffee they had scanned at $12.99.
  • A tip from Amy: “You can also go to cartwheel.target.com on the web – I have done that many times when the app refuses to load at the register (which is often).”
  • And one from Samantha if you have trouble loading the app: “Maureen, Cartwheel has a Widget you can add to your home screen. As long as your offers are loaded, it’ll work fine. I’ve long since given up being able to load the actual app in the store!”
  • Maureen shares: “If you purchase Disney gift cards with your Target red card you save 5% on each card (and if you have a RxRewards you’ll get another 5%). We’ve got a summer trip planned so each time I’m in Target I throw one or two $50 gift cards in my cart since they’re right at checkout (make sure the card says “Shop, Dine, Stay, Play”). The cards can be used to pay for Disney hotels, park tickets, Disney Cruise Line, pretty much anything Disney vacation related. 5% doesn’t sound like much, the savings is only $2.50 per $50 card, but for us, we should save enough to pay for an airline ticket. Plus, it’s great for our budget to pay off the trip a few hundred dollars at a time.”

Deal of day

  • Samantha comments: “Make a Messterpiece is on living social -2 for $15 -I bought 2 vouchers (I have 2 kids) and it took $4.50 off -so better than group on where it only comes off one deal -it came off the total transaction!”

Jewel

  • A find from Ashley: “The Schaumburg Jewel store has hundreds of bottles of alcohol on clearance for $4 each. Although the sign says wine, there’s others included too. Be sure to look for rebates and coupons in store, many of them have escalating rebates or coupons for money off another product when you buy that bottle.”

Jerry’s

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “I’ve been going to Jerry’ s Fruit Market for over 30 years and they do indeed change their prices on a whim. Strawberries were advertised at $1.50 then they dropped the price to .69 cents. Tomorrow’s sale says .69 cents. You just never know when the owner whom I know wants to do something special and drop the price. He gets a kick out of it.”

You will end up paying $0.17 per double roll or about $0.08 per single roll.”
  • A heads up from anne on the Checkout51 offer: “I think the variety of Bear Naked 50% off on CW is for a bag that is not quite 12 oz…nor is the only coupon out there on KFR for $1/1…..of course :( Sniff sniff”
  • Judy S. agrees: “I think Anne is right. The Bear Naked website shows that the Honey Almond Protein Granola is 11.2 oz:(“

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

Caputo’s

  • Krystle noticed: “There’s also a bunch of the Udi’s gluten free products( blueberry muffins, plain bagels, white/whole grain/ cinnamon raisin sandwich bread, tortillas, pizza crust, and 6pk hot dogs buns) on sale for $3.29, minus the $1.50/1 printable, $1.79 each! Also the 4pack of hamburger buns are also on sale for 2/$5, makes for $1 per pack for gluten free hamburger buns! I’m pretty sure this is a great deal!”

Chicago Tribune

  • Shawna shares: “I called today to order the Sunday only Tribune for 75 cents deal, and I got it for 50 cents per week. I’m not sure how this happened. I didn’t even ask for 50 cents, but I’m happy!”

Coupons

CVS

  • Jessica sends over: “Just a heads up for your readers…  I tried to purchase some allergy medicine (totaling about $33) and gave them two CVS coupons – a $5/25 any allergy purchase that printed out from the magic coupon machine, and a $5/25 ANY purchase that was sent to my card from an email.  CVS wouldn’t take them, and told me that per their new coupon policy any dollar off purchase coupons have to be distinct (so I could have used both only by purchasing $50 or more of merchandise).  I have stacked coupons like this successfully many times in the past, so I don’t know if it was just a fluke or if this is indeed a change, but since they cited the ‘NEW coupon policy’, be warned. :)”

Household tips

  • Some egg information from peaches: “I bought a dozen organic eggs at the winter farmer’s market in Evanston two weeks ago, and they were the best eggs I have ever had, and I am not an egg lover usually, but I spent $5 on them. $4 a dozen is the absolute cheapest you can purchase them for at the farmer’s market, and then they aren’t organic. I live by myself though, and so it takes a month for me to go through a dozen eggs. BTW- You can use one heaped up tablespoon of soy flour and one tablespoon of water in place of one egg when you are making cake or pancakes that call for eggs. I do that when I fix pancakes from scratch all the time, and I can’t tell the difference..”

Jerry’s

  • Marsha says: “Jerry’s has a weekly ad, does not change daily as stated belowThe original commenter may have been referring to an unadvertised deal.

Jewel

  • Maureen on the Challenge Butter: “There are also .55 blinkies at the store.”
  • Shandelle found: “Aquafina Flavorsplash is 2/$1 at Jewel thru 4/22. If you still have any of the BOGO coupons from the SS 1/26, this makes them $.25 each, which is the best price I have seen so far. They are regular price $.78 at Walmart, too.”
  • Shandelle shares: “I noticed on Jill Cataldo’s Jewel matchups for this week that 7 oz Bagel Bites will be on sale for $1.50. Through tomorrow, Wed 4/2, only- If you have the $1 back on 2 Bagel Bites from Checkout 51, use the $1.50/3 printable from www.bagelbites.com/en/Savings-and-Stuff and pay $.67 per box after Checkout 51.” She adds: “Also the $1.50 coupon prints with a very short exp of 4/8 in case that is an issue.”
  • Shandelle on the El Monterey breakfast burritos: “Jewel has these 10/$10 regular price, too.”

Mariano’s

  • From seachicago: “Another good coupon to double is the 50 cents/2 Ortega (1/19SS)—the black beans are 89 cents, so 39 cents/ea.  Also, Eggland’s Best large eggs are $2/doz., use 35 cent coupon (2/2 SS) to make these $1.30, which is comparable to Wags sale this week.  I usually like eggs to be under $1, but I’m curious to see if EB really does taste better!”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle asks: “So is this Jingit app worth it? I just downloaded it on my iphone and signed up. I’ve heard virtually nothing about it on any coupon blogs, which makes me think it’s one that’s really difficult to earn anything. It looks like it’s $3 to get the Visa card for them to actually pay you but you have to earn that through money made using the app, so not really a deal breaker for me I guess. I tried to google for reviews and didn’t find much other than a few random blogs saying it wasn’t the best for earning money. But maybe with the coupons/offers it’s a little easier. It looked like the only stores it was offering me was Target, Walmart and Food4Less. Looks like you check in with the app so is it similar to Shopkick? Anyone been successfully using this to say if it’s really worth it? I’m all for free money, even if it accrues and takes a while (a la Checkout 51).”

Target

  • Shandelle confirms that a gift card deal on Windex bathroom Touch-Up is still going: “Yes, the tags in my Target indicated the $3.39 price and the Buy 4 get $5 GC were both good until 4/19. Keep in mind, it was on the bathroom touch ups and not the kitchen ones as far as signage and what an employee told me.”
  • She adds: “I just read on Krazy Coupon Lady that Checkout 51 may be offering $1 back on Windex Touch Up tomorrow so maybe wait a day? :)”
  • A tip from Samantha on Facebook: “I was just checking out the Target coupons on their site. I noticed when you hover your mouse over the coupons, it tells you if they are Target store coupons!” I just noticed that today as well! And it tells you when it will expire.
  • From seachicago: “FYI: if you do the Right Guard deal, keep an eye on how much the coupons scan for. One of my MQs scanned for $1.50 instead of $2, and I have no idea why. On the plus side, the $5/2 Nivea lotion qs went thru without a hitch! Also, Krave cereal is included in the BOGO $3 sale. Got 12 boxes for $16 ($1.33/ea) using 2 $1/3 qs. Good price for a cereal that doesn’t go on sale too often, with no store brand available anywhere. It looked like all varieties of Mini Wheats were included in the sale, too.”
  • Nikki says: “The Right Guard Q scans at $1.50 off if they scan the old bar code. It will scan at $2 off if they scan the new bar code. (Thanks, ETC!) I had to explain a bunch of times to the cashier & Team Leader at Broadview last night about the Nivea coupons-they gave them to me for free, adjusting the coupons down.”

Walmart

  • Shawna reports: “I saw the Mars Bites at the Shorewood WalMart selling for $1, too.”
