Caputo’s

  • A find from letsshop: “Also went to Caputo’s red,yellow &orange peppers 99 cents a pound unadvertised I think , love the taste of them.”

CVS

  • Plan ahead with Maureen: “Never fear, though, next week at CVS Sally Hansen Xtreme Wear polish will be free after MQ and ECB.”

Jewel

  • From letsshop: “Also Sierra Mist is a Pepsi product ,so might be on sale too !and we have those 25 cents coupons 3/15 SS”
  • Finds from Jane: “Look for 25c on snap off any olive oil as well as 25c on Pompeian olive oil Monopoly coupons. Pair that with the sale this week plus the printable coupon and you may snag some pretty cheap EVOO! $2.49 after the stack?”
  • Michelle b suggests: “Check your monopoly coupons for .25 off the Armour Lunchmakers.”
  • On the $.97 Fresh Express spinach this weekend, from Jane: “Go to their website and join the salad swap. Then for every 2 salads you buy, you enter the codes to get $1/2 (coupon) on your next purchase. This is good on all bags, so I use these on the non-blends like spinach! Otherwise the $1/1 coupon is better if it is the blends or mixes that are on sale that week.”

Mariano’s

  • An app deal from llz A: “before doing this deal make sure your saving star has Mariano’s linked to scan stores…at Marianos…Dole strawberry and banana dippers are $3.00.

Meijer

  • If you’re looking for the free Nestea, SmartShopper found: “Note: at the Rolling Meadows Meijer, the Nestea 12 packs are not in the juice isle like the coupon states. I found a pallet of them in the main isle half way down.”

Reader requests

  • Anyone know more about this program? A question from grandma g: “I just received a flyer from Macy’s about “Plenti”, a brand new way to earn points at lots of places, including Mobil, Exxon, Rite Aid, etc. Have you heard anything about this? Just curious. :)

Staples

  • Christine comments on the $10 Sharpies deal: “And in the store these are even less, only $9 for 24/pack. In a couple of different color options.”
  • Cara asks: “Does anyone know a limit for the Staples paper…either the penny ream or the 5 pack for $3? Thanks!”

Target

  • Lisa got a great deal on Pepsi with the in-ad $5/$15 coupon this week: “I picked 4 24 packs of Pepsi at Target in Plainfield on Rt 59. They rang up $3.98 each and used the $5off $15 coupon. Paid $10.92 for 96 cans of Pepsi! Came out to $0.11 each can. Target in Bolingbrook, Shorewood and Plainfield are ringing up this price. I saw on FB many stores were ringing that price, regular Pepsi only, no diet.”
  • On the Huggies Catalina deal, Maria V comments: “I went to target in Illinois. I bought 2 super huggies pack that were 24.99 each and wyb two you would receive a ten dollar gift card. Well I was surprised to receive $5.00 off my next purchase from huggies. It worked for me.”
  • Alice comments: “I did the 6 pads 3.99 deal, u sing 3 bogo coupons, better han expected, after checking my receipt, noticed coupons scanned full valué, so great mm applied to my toilet paper deal, score!”

Amazon

Coupons

  • Looking for a use for the Delightfulls morsels coupon? From kelly: “I HAD seen them on clearance at Target about a week and a half ago. Don’t know if they still are, though.”

Fresh Thyme

  • A find from Joann: “For those in N IL or S WI on their website it says one will open in the Milwaukee area later this year.”

Jewel

  • Laura shares: “I asked Jewel on Facebook again about the 2015 Kid’s Free Fruit card and they said that all the stores should have the new card by now. They asked for the stores I shop at so they can talk to the store directors. If anyone is having trouble getting a card the Morris and Minooka locations should have them soon.”
  • From silvia: “Cherrios yellow box can be 1.13 if you still have the .75 off print from the pillsbury site. you can get the same one on the box top site too!” $1.88 on the 3 day sale this weekend.
  • Also from silvia: “So oreos had a peelie a while back on packages for $1/2. if you can get more than one gallon free, well buy 6 oreos, use three coupons and get two free gallons of milk that if you divide the cost of all, its like paying $1.49 for each item.”
  • On the Quaker select starts oatmeal coupon, Brandy asks: “Anyone know what these are at Jewel? Probably $5.99 considering their prices. :/”
  • Susie asks on the Ice Mountain Catalina deal: “Are the 12 oz 12-packs also included in the Catalina deal? They are also on sale 3/$5 and there is a $.75 off one coupon in the same paper 3/8 [RP].”
  • Yamagirrl tried it: “Ok… Just tried the three 12-pk 12oz.. NO CAT! But still a good deal at .92 each pack.”
  • And a heads up from Sandra: “I bought 2 of the 8oz 12 pks this morning and did not get the OYNO. All I got was a manufacturer catalina coupon for $1/2. I did a second transaction with 2 of the 700 ml 6 pks and did get the $1 OYNO that time (but no $1/2 Q). CS forced a print of the $1 OYNO on my first order since I was able to show them the cat on the second order and the shelf was tagged.”
  • More couponing heads up from couponer4eva: “I used the $1 off 3 Essential Everyday can vegetables last week, my store had some varieties on sale for 50 cents. The receipt showed “$1 off my Mix, maximum value 50 cents”, and it only took off the 50 cents. Had I known that, I would have thought twice about buying them. You would think a reputable chain like Jewel, would get their act together instead of trying to rip people off in such a sneaky manner. I just don’t trust them anymore.”
  • It happened to Andrea, too: “This happened to me, too. I didn’t notice it until I got home, and I didn’t think going back for $.12 was worth it! I did, however, ask the cashier to adjust my two $1 coupons that I noticed rang as $.75 each. I’m not sure which ones they were, but I’m guessing they were the $1/2 Essential Everyday pasta that I printed awhile ago.” Watch the registers, guys!

Mariano’s

  • From SoapboxTray: “At Mariano’s this morning and the Entenmanns Little Bites are on sale for $2.50 a box. If you still have some $1. off IP’s (not sure if still available) you can get for 50¢ a box doubled today (on Wednesdays).” IP is no longer available to print, but if you still have it…

Meijer

jacksmeijer

  • If you clipped the $10/4 Jack’s pizzas mPerks coupon only to have it change to $1.00/4 on you, check again — several of you have commented that a new $10/4 Jack’s pizza store coupon has appeared, but it seems only to be for those who clipped it the first time before it changed up — see above screenshot from feelgood.

Reader requests

  • From llz A: “reposting-looking for someone in Des Plaines that coupons, has surplus items, and is interested in making carebags for homeless. If anyone has extra travel size items, toothbrushes, toothpaste, wetwipes, the 2 packs of disposable razors, soaps, sample packs of medicine, , granola bars, or anything that might go into a bag that you are not in need( of I am willing to do a pickup if you are close to Des Plaines”
  • Julie asks on Facebook: “Windows. Any suggestions for windows? They seem insanely expensive. But ours need to be replaced. No doubt about that.”

Target

  • A find from Maureen: “There is a triple stack on Ritz Fresh Stacks: 20% Cartwheel, 20% Target printable, and a $1/2 MQ [3/22 SS]. The math was wonky on my receipt, but the total for two boxes was $2.60.”
  • On the Gain Flings deal, kate comments: “14.99 at my store. Winfield Rd”

Walgreens

  • On the Pull-Up wipes deal, Jaci says: “Have yet to see these in the nw suburbs.” Anyone found them nearby?
  • Heads up from Jane on the Gillette razors deal: “Well I just tried to use the coupon at Walmart and it was denied! Not just for any overage, just plain refused to allow it on the 2 packs of razors. I showed the cashier it was not excluding any sizes and she still said no. She even showed me the register showing it was not the correct product. I hate Walmart lately using coupons. They also denied me the printable coupon on the South Beach good to go bars for that price match with Big Lots the other day too. This time the reason was that it was only good for “diet” bars! I showed her it was for South Beach DIET bars, but she said it was not the correct kind because you have to get those over in the pharmacy section. I am tired of arguing with them. I have so much better luck at Target it seems. (though, they do not carry South Beach bars at my non Super Target! Dang it.)”
  • Diane comments: “Did find the Gillette razors @ Walmart & also noticed they also carry the small bags of Werther’s carmels for $1, in case anyone is looking for them.”

Amazon

  • A note from Artie on the cheap spice gripper strips: “I’m in for one too. I also have a lot of glass bottles. If you look closely at the pictures you can see that some of the bottles pictured are McCormick glass bottles which are much larger than the plastic ones so it should work with my larger ones.”

Apps

  • On the overlapping Shock Top rebates, SmartShopper found the 6 packs for $6.99 at Meijer, so a money maker there.
  • SmartShopper also has a higher value offer on her Ibotta, so it varies by user — check yours! “My Ibotta shows rebates on Shock Top: $5.00 for the 6-pack and $7.00 for the 12-pack.”
  • Brandy had the higher value too, and got hers at Target: “Yep, also had $5 in my Ibotta and the Shopmium $5, plus if you redeem today on Ibotta, extra $.50 for some random Tax Day bonus 4/15-4/16 over $2 in redemptions. I paid $7.49 at Target and got $10.50 back, so $3 moneymaker! I don’t even think I’ll like this stuff, but I was all about getting paid to buy it!”
  • Also on Shock Top, something to look for from liz: “There is also coupons attached to the six packs for buy shocktop get 2.00 in produce free”
  • From SmartShopper on the overlapping Nature Valley granola offers: “Nature Valley Protein Granola is on sale at Target for $2.69. Use .75/1 mfg and submit $1.00 to Snap by Groupon and $1.00 back on Checkout 51 = .6 cent money maker after coupon, and apps.”

CVS

  • SoapboxTray clarifies on the Cheerios deal: “CVS Cheerios deal is 3 of each of the 2 varieties: 3 of Honey Nut and 3 of regular yellow box.”

Mariano’s

  • Shandelle asks: “Has anyone been able to redeem that ecoupon for a free Yoplait Greek 100 Whips cup at Mariano’s from the Pillsbury email list last month?? Went to Mariano’s with a friend last weekend and no flavors came off free from either card despite loading it and pillsbury stating it was loaded. The manager was very nice and just comped them anyway but I hope I didn’t get the wrong kind or something! And that Mariano’s will be reimbursed for that (probably not :-/ ).I was really wary about this freebie actually working since it’s through a 3rd party site and not Mariano’s store ecoupons.”

Meijer

  • On the idea of stacking the ten for $10 get the 11th item free deals, feelgood suggests: “Beth, I would do one transaction of 11, pay, then do another one. If you stack two deals, I’ve had it where the register sometimes randomly decides which ones becomes the 11th items, and lose out on the coupon value.”
  • And a reminder from Julie: “Also keep in mind, you cannot use a coupon on the 11th/free item, so make sure you plan for that and place whatever item you are not using a coupon onto the belt or scan it yourself as the 11th item for the deal.”
  • Sue B replies to yesterday’s question about returns: “Joanne – in regards to the Orland Park Meijer – it is an independently run meijer in that it is separate from other meijers in that it runs its own adds – and doesnt always have the same sale items as all the other meijers. At least that is what I was told not to mention its just a crappy store in general. I shop at the new Wolfe road store it big and has everything.”
  • Veronica asks: “On Meijer~ isn’t that illegal? The are still going to get paid from the manufacturer for that coupon so they got the item back but are still chasing in? That doesn’t seem right….”
  • Kitty comments: “Joanne re Meijer returns….same thing in Niles. I do have a problem not getting my coupon money back. After all, they get the money plus the handling fee. I always complain and can usually manage to get a store credit. That’s one of the few things I don’t like about Meijer PLUS they raised the price of their Friskies cat food from 46c to 55c So I will have to start going back to Pet Supplies Plus again.”

99 Cent Stores

  • Suzann comments: “We have 99 cent stores in Houston– they are a treasure hunt. They put
    the latest non perishables up front and some of the warehouse club sizes. They moved in when Albertson’s pulled out of this market around 2004 and sold them that fairly new distribution facility. They also get products the majors did let get established.”

Oregon Trail

  • Admiring the new tee? Becky shares that: “…you can now play it online at archive.org I’m talking about the old school one from the 80’s and 90’s. I’ve now hooked my DD on this game! :)

Target

  • On the Pantene deal, Melissa asks: “Patty – on the pantene did you price check because I have seen pictures that the price on the shelf was changed but that the gel stills rings up 2.48. I haven’t been out to try it yet.”
  • And another hair deal from seachicago: “Target has Clairol Natural Instincts haircolor 2 for $12. Pair this with the $5/2 q in the 3/29 PG for a good deal at $3.50/box!”

TurboTax

  • A reminder from Judy: “Don’t forget to apply for the $25 Turbotax rebate if you bought the Premier version this year after using the Deluxe version last year. Must file by 4/20. I almost forgot to apply.”

American Express

  • A great find from feelgood: “For those with American Express credit cards, go to your account online and check your offers at the bottom of the page. On 4 of my 5 AMEX cards, there was an offer for $20 off an Amazon purchase of $20 or more!”

Contacts

  • If you’re looking at getting contacts from Canada as per the suggestion in yesterday’s Reader Deals, Heather is curious: “Meg, did you submit it to your insurance? Just curious if insurance would cover contacts from Canada”
  • Meg replies: “No, I don’t have vision insurance. But if you have a medical FSA, I bet they would reimburse it. I’m pretty sure contacts are a covered expense; I doubt it matters where you get them from.”

CVS

  • Doing the Honey Nut Cheerios deal? Maggie shares: “I was able to get a great deal today, since I still had the BOGO coupon from a box of Cheerios a while back. It took off $4 but combined with another 50 cents off coupon, I paid almost $4 but got $6 back in ECB. That doesn’t happen too often these days, so a good day for me. :) Just a reminder for those of you who still have one of those “box coupons” in your wallet! By the way, after getting 2 boxes my receipt does NOT say that I met the limit… Anyone know what the limit is for this deal?”
  • Liz replies: “I saw somewhere it was 3″ I think so — my receipt is showing one to go.

Food 4 Less

  • Sandra warns: “Heads up, check your receipt if you do the buy 4 save $4 instant. I was at F4L this morning and 6 of my 36 items did not receive the $1 discount. CS gave me a $6 store credit and said that earlier none of the discounts had been working. Most had been fixed, but they figured some had still been missed which is why 6 of my items didn’t come off. It was a mixture of some of the Kraft cheeses and some of the Snak Saks that caused the issue with me. Oh, and check the shreds for $1/2 peelies. :)

Jewel

  • Check your local Jewel ad for a separate flyer for select stores, per letsshop: “Some Jewel’s have banana’s 29 cents pound ,a separate flyer came in my paper .”

Mariano’s

  • If you’re still heading over today for double coupon Weds., Linda found: “Ken salad dressing is on sale for $2, doubling the $0.75 coupon a while back, and get it for $0.50 a bottle, not bad!”
  • And one from Silvia: “Mt olive has .75 off any item coupons on the jars, get mild banana pepper rings 12oz jars for .49 cents!”

Meijer

  • From Joanne: “I don’t know if all Meijers suck – or if it’s just the Orland Park location. Here is one example of what has happened to me. 1) If I buy something and use a coupon – and then for whatever reason have to return it – they do not refund the coupon money – which I don’t have a problem with – what I do have a problem with is that the receipt I get shows that they gave me the entire amount – but they do not. Example: If I bought coffee for $8 and I had a $2 coupon – I’m paying $6 (plus tax). If I return it – my receipt shows that I received an $8 refund – when in reality they only give me the $6. I don’t like that the receipt doesn’t reflect the truth – it should show a $6 refund – since that’s all they are giving me. Has anyone else experienced this?”

99 Cents Only stores

  • From seachicago: “In case anyone has plans to take a “self-catered holiday” (aka rent a condo and cook) out west, I want to recommend the 99cents Only stores. They’re in some of the western states, and while they don’t take manufacturer coupons, I was really impressed with their prices. The stores are huge (2x Dollar Tree size), and filled with a lot of name brands. At least half the store is food, including produce and dairy, and name-brand bread. Some of the food sizes are smaller than at the grocery (but that’s often okay, since you usually only need a weeks-worth of condiments, etc. on vacation!), but a lot are full size. For instance, I bought 16 oz. strawberries, 14 oz. box of Kellogg’s cereal, 8 ct. name-brand thin bagels, 15 oz. Hellman’s light mayo, etc. BTW, everything is actually $1—as in 99.999 cents!”

Rebates

  • If you’re still waiting for your Smirnoff rebate, David comments: “Diageo rebate – been 10 weeks but I did get an email saying approved $60 on 4/3/15. Just called, said $40 has mailed. Yep so they will send an additional $20…
    in another month to process. Nice!!” See yesterday’s Reader Deals for other comments on this rebate.

Target

  • On the issues with Kleenex and the $10/$50 code with the Kimberly-Clark deal, Kelley comments: “I had the same problem as Kerri with the 10 off 50 at target. I just did a live chat and they took off the $10 since it shows on the ad as participating.”
  • Patty comments: “Update on Pantene deal- it’s still running; however, the hair gel tubes are now $4.59-$4.99, so not such a great deal.”

Mariano’s toothpaste shopping

marianos415

(Don’t worry — I’m planning to donate a bunch of this toothpaste, lol…) I also stopped by the Elmhurst Mariano’s today — I always forget to go on double coupon Wednesdays, but they’re kind of fun.

200 sq ft Glad cling wrap, $2.69. Used a $1.00/1 Glad printable which doubled to $2.00.

Bagels, $4.20.
Bananas, $.82.
Fingerling potatoes, $1.84.
Driscoll’s raspberries, $2.00. Used a $.50/1 survey coupon which doubled to $1.00.

Free Crest at Mariano’s

crest-marianos

A couple of you have mentioned that Crest 4.6 oz paste (regular, tartar control, the other basic varieties) has been on sale for $1.00 at Mariano’s. I stopped by the Elmhurst store today and they even had this giant Crest banner hanging from the ceiling — so I’m not sure if this is a permanent price, but it should be good for a while! Use the $3.00/3 Crest paste coupon in the 3/29 PG to get three free tubes of toothpaste.

ALDI

  • Caroline on Facebook found: “YMMV Aldi has Starburst jellybeans for .25 a bag.”

Contacts

  • Meg shares: “I wanted to share something I just learned. I’ve been looking for a contact lens exam so that I can buy another year’s worth of my contact lenses. Most of those cheap exams at LensCrafters and the like do not cover contact lenses. And I stumbled across this little known (to me, anyway) fact: you do not need a valid prescription to purchase contact lenses in British Columbia. And online retailers located in BC will ship to the US. I was skeptical, but my years’ supply of Accuvue arrived today and they are exactly the same ones I’ve been wearing. The site I used was http://www.visionpros.ca and I just entered the prescription info off one of my current boxes of lenses. Of course, it’s recommended to get an eye exam every year. So I will probably still go get a $19 one just to ensure good eye health. But I won’t need the pricier contact lens exam, at least not every year.”

Dollar Tree

  • Print the new $1.00/2 Thomas’ coupon, because focadima comments: “My dollar tree also carries these by the brownberry bread”

Jewel

  • A find from Dee Clawed on Facebook: “Jewel is clearancing Mt. Olive Super Stacker dill pickles. They were marked $1.34 for large jars but rang up at .74 cents! There were also .55 cent coupons elastic-banded to the lids making for .19 cent big jars of pickles! Be careful as these are the long flat slice…not the quartered spears.”

Mariano’s

  • A confirmation of the $1.00 Crest toothpaste (use $3.00/3 in the 3/29 PG!) from Linda: “Saw the toothpaste at Mariano’s today. Still a dollar a tube. In a bin near the checkouts”
  • Print the reset So Delicious coupon, because SoapboxTray found: “So Delicious: These double perfectly at Mariano’s and yogurt are regular price 1.99 so free on Wednesdays. Yum!”

Meijer

  • On the cheap Lactaid milk at Target, feelgood points out: “Just an FYI, the free Fairlife 2% white and chocolate milk at Meijer this week are also lactose free.”

Reader requests

  • One from Coreena: “Hi! Need some help finding protective covers for an IPhone 6. Thoughts?? TIA!”
  • Laura asks: “Has anyone else noticed that all of the flavors of Dole Squish ‘ems have hard little pieces of rind or something in them. I’ve bought different packs thinking it was just that particular pack but the hard pieces are always in there. I’ve contacted the company and even sent in one of the hard pieces and all they do is send coupons for more of the product. They are on clearance at my local jewel and I think that is maybe why. None of the other brands of these applesauce pouches have this problem.”

  • Jadeyzma replies to the Smirnoff rebate question from yesterday: “Feel good, I’m still waiting on my rebate for Smirnoff too…they are definitely behind this time. I did get an email saying that it has been received and being processed. Go online to check your status…it hasn’t taken this long in the past.”
  • But a heads up from Anne: “Just a heads up on the Smirnoff Rebate – make sure they send you the correct amount. I looked up to make sure I’d received my rebate (I had, about a month ago), BUT it was only for $40, not the $60 I was supposed to receive.”
  • Alicia says: “I got my Smirnoff a week or two ago. Yours should be on its way!”
  • And if you’ve been waiting for Kohl’s appliance rebates, good news from letsshop: “Wanted to mentioned received rebates from Kohls slow cookers deal ! Put all 4 rebates in one envelope because I was able to buy them at the store ,since they ran out of stock ! was sent in 2 CG in the amount of $40 ,took a extra 3 weeks because of stores type of receipts ): but all is well .”

Target

  • Another Easter clearance candy idea from Diane: “On the Target M & M’s, suprise I was at Target today too, LOL. Anyway, we had a buy a 9 oz or larger bag of M&M’s & get the crispy M&M’s free. I only had the Target $1/2 M&M coupon left, so got 4 bags of M&M’s ( 2 Easter & 2 Crispy) for .90 cents! No sure which insert, I think weekend of 4/12.” 4/12/15 RP.
  • And a clearance candy find from Caroline on Facebook: “And if you still have the Hersey $2/3 Easter candy coupon you can pick up bags of Cadbury mini-eggs at Target for .33 cents a bag for the 10 oz bags.”
  • If you’re having trouble with the codes for the Kimberly-Clark deal, a reminder from shirley: “The old code is missing a letter so try TGTE59AF. Make sure you enter this one first if your subtotal is like mine $55.xx. Hope this helps.”
  • If you’re still having trouble, vicki suggests: “Try TGTCDQH5″
  • A heads up from Kerri: “The Kleenex is still on the page but when you add to the cart and try to put the 10 off 50 coupon in it says you don’t have enough in your cart for that offer.”
  • And Chris shares on Facebook that: “A heads up for Super Target on Diehl in Warrenville: they are resetting dairy and frozen. Lots of frozen fish and desserts plus MP and Kraft cheeses today. Cashier told me to keep checking back all week, a lot more will go on clearance instead of moving it . Works for me!”

Walmart

  • A find from Nancy M.: “Colgate spinbrush in box with toothpaste at Walmart are ringing up $0.59.
    They had SpongeBob and Hello Kitty.”

Whole Foods

  • From Judy: “Mambo Sprouts has a DeBoles $1/1 coupon. Checkout 51 has $2/2, must be purchased in 1 transaction. Whole Foods has some DeBoles pasta on sale for $2.19 throught [today], 4/14. $.19 pasta. The boxes are only 8 oz.” I don’t have the DeBoles offer; check your Checkout 51 to see if you do.
