Mariano’s and a hair cut, two bits!

OK, yeah, a lot more than two bits… but I got a badly needed hair cut this morning (what do you think?). That put me much of the way toward Mariano’s, so I decided to also go check out their Memorial Day sale.

sabramarianos

This wants to be crooked… but if you printed the $2.00/1 Sabra hummus coupon I told you about yesterday, it’s on sale at Mariano’s 2/$5.00 through 6/3 — so just $.50 after coupon! I also saw that they’ve dropped the price on Udi’s bread to $4.00 with no end date, so if you picked up $1.00 coupons at the Gluten Free Expo you might be able to score some gluten free bread for $2.00 on Double Daze next Wednesday.

And, here’s what I picked up:

So Delicious yogurt cup, $1.99. Used a $1.00/1 printable coupon (no longer available) and got $1.00 back on Ibotta already.
2 Sabra hummus, $5.00. Used two $2.00/1 printables.
2 bottles of Tide, $8.00. Used two $2.00/1 from the 5/3 PG.
Bob’s Red Mill gluten free pancake mix, $3.67. Used the $1.00/1 printable coupon here.
Jennie-O frozen turkey breast, $7.11.
4 Driscoll’s strawberries, $5.00. Used four $1.00/1 survey coupons (that were a gift, since I’m not up to the $1.00 reward level yet!).

Paid $17.81 with $1.00 back for a net cost of $16.81.

*** 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.

Butera

  • From Diane S.: “A heads-up on the Piggly Wiggly water on sale at Butera for $1.69. There is no recycle number on these bottles, so I don’t believe they are recyclable. I don’t usually buy bottled water, but I was going to buy some for a graduation party. These is a note on the plastic packaging that states that the bottles may not be recyclable in your area. Where can you recycle plastic with no number? I was stunned to think that all these bottles will be going to landfills.”

Jewel

  • Patty comments: “The Trans-Ocean 20 oz. mock crab is for the Supreme only, not the Classic, so you can’t use the coupon. In addition, there was a sign next to the crab stating there’s an error in the ad; the price is $5.99, not $2.99.”

Mariano’s

  • On the Nut Exactly coupon + Snap, from liz: “They are on sale at Marianas for 2.50..or they were yesterday when I went..”
  • And peaches asks: “Does anybody know if the home made Italian sausage they have on sale for $2,50, includes chicken sausage?”

Meijer

meijeroffcat

  • Sophie shares an OFF Catalina she received at Meijer: Buy two OFF products between 5/18/15 – 7/12/15, get $1.50 OYNO.
  • From Cari: “Found tear pad at the deli at Homer Glen Meijer. Free Hawaiian sub rolls (up to $3) whey you buy 1 lb sara lee deli meat.”
  • On the Dreft deal, Debbie points out: “By the way, both coupons expire 5/31.”

Reader requests

  • A response to yesterday’s bread machine question from seachicago: “April, if your bread is always coming out hard and dense, I would check to make sure your yeast is “live.” Just put a couple teaspoons of yeast in a cup of warm water, and add a little sugar. If it foams up, it’s good. If not, it’s dead and your bread won’t rise. Also, when you add water to your bread machine, make sure it’s warm but not hot (think body temp!), and make sure your other ingredients are room temp. I keep yeast in the freezer to extend its life. For anyone looking to buy a bread machine, I bought a cheap WestBend from Bed Bath & Beyond online, with coupon and free shipping it was about $60. My family thinks it’s the best thing I’ve bought in ages! Rather than buying bread machine mixes at the store (pricey!), I use the recipes that came with my machine and mix up a few loaves-worth of dry ingredients at once and store in a ziploc bag. That way, I can have a loaf in the machine in about a minute, and with the “rapid” cycle we can have a hot loaf in about 90 minutes. That’s almost faster than I could get to and from the store to buy bread! :) We *love* our bread machine, but my husband complains it’s messing up his low-carb diet!”

Target

  • On the Hormel party tray deal, Diane asks:” Does anyone know if you have to go to a SuperTarget to get this? Or are they at the regular Targets? Thanks!”
  • And ann replies: “Only found these at Super Targets. The smaller ones were at the regular targets.”
  • If you’re having trouble finding the Horizon snack crackers, SoapboxTray says: “I find them on and off, the one I shop at never got the regular type just the sandwich crackers. Near the goldfish. (Super Target Mundelein)”

Whole Foods

  • On the Lightlife Smart Dogs deal, yvette says: “the coupon keeps printing over and over, I am able to add this to printer and it prints with a new code each time…”

Coupons

  • On the Blue Bunny novelty coupons, Maria S. shares: “Was able to print 2 from each zip. All four printed with a long expiration date: 10/31/15.”
  • Jane says: “*I swear last post about salad! I forgot to mention I got an email from Fresh Express today saying by popular demand they are extending the Salad Swap for another month! You can start your swap on June 1st and you have 30 days to print coupons from then. These are for entering codes off bags for $1/2 or if you enter 15 in a month you get a whole years worth of coupons to print which are $2/2 ANY type. I did that already and am set.”

Jewel

  • Apparently a number of Chicago Tribune Wednesday editions have had $5/$50 Jewel coupons — from everyone’s comments, check in papers near Palatine, far north side of Chicago.
  • Maureen points out: “There’s also $1 MyMixx coupon for Quaker Real Medleys Cereal and a $.50 Quaker Real Medleys Cereal Ibotta and a $.30 any cereal Ibotta..”
  • And another deal from Jane: “I found yet another deal for salad at Jewel. The Marzetti croutons are on sale this week for $1 and I found a 75c insert coupon from the 3-22 SS to make them only a quarter a bag to sweeten the salad deal at Jewel. Hurry though, that coupon expires 5-17. You could even get some cheap tomatoes they have for the weekend sale to make a nice salad with?”

Joe Caputo’s

  • Christine comments that: “Joe Caputos in Algonquin also has a $5/50 in the mailed flyer. Of course I forgot mine and they don’t take it after the fact.”

Mariano’s

  • Silvia found: “Bear Naked granola is on sale for $3.25 and have $1/1 peelies so if you come Wednesday’s, double coupon makes them $1.25 for an 11.2 oz bag😉!”

Reader requests

  • West M. is wondering: “whether anyone knows where the cheapest or best deal on glucosamine is? Have two members in the family on it now and it’s generally pretty expensive.”

Rebates

  • One from Maria S.: “https://www.chewykeepplaying.com/about Free Nerf Item wyb 3 specially marked boxes of Quaker Chewy Granola Bars. You pay $2.95 for S&H. There are 6 Nerf items to choose from. You have to enter the unique codes found inside each individual box on their website. Then you need to complete the online order form. It does state that you MUST provide a PayPal account to pay for the $2.95 S&H costs. While supplies last. Limit 4 free items per household. Offer ends 9/30/15. FAQ: https://www.chewykeepplaying.com/faq

Target

  • If you find this tearpad, a deal from Kari O.: “My 6 yr old collects coupons everywhere and found a $.75/1 Ben and Jerry’s tearpad. We combined it with the $3.25 sale price and 5% off Cartwheel to get a Phish Food for $2.33. She was pretty excited to make her own deal. lol I forgot to add I am fairly certain her coupon came from Thornton’s the day before.”

Anti virus

  • Shirley asks: “Any recommendation for antivirus program? I am currently using Norton 360 which will expire a month but Norton does not have 360 for 2015 and many people comment the Norton Security 2015 is not as good as the 360. TIA.”

Apps

  • TracyS asks: “Anyone else have major issues with snap? Before I make a purchase, I check to see if the offer is still available. I check again when I am ready to scan my receipt and it is still showing up. However, after I spend the time photographing my receipt, I am unable to select the item. I contact support and they say too bad. How am I supposed to know the offer is gone?”

Costco

  • Shopping at Costco any time soon? From kitty: “RE: Costco cinnamon: It’s a great price for the huge amount in the jar. I had heard that it’s a natural ant repellant, so I sprinkled it around my cat food dishes, on the tray and on the floor. Since then, I have not seen a single ant!! I was a little worried that maybe it wasn’t good for the cats, so I called my vet to inquire. Turns out it could actually be good for them and is used in the treatment of diabetic cats!!”
  • Also from kitty: “Speaking of cheese, did you know that Heinz is buying Kraft? RE: VITAMIX…we have had ours for 40 years,( yes 40) and use it several times a week. It’s a great product and well worth the $$$.”
  • Goddess shares more prices: “I picked up the fancy-schmancy beer for DH – Chimay was $10.99 (DH pays $13.99 at Binney’s) and the Lambic Framboise was $9.59. Shot pix to DH, asking if he wanted any…never heard back until we got to the front of the store…when I see FOUR missed calls. Heck, yeah he wants some! Wouldn’t get that fast a response if I texted from ambulance on way to hospital!”

CVS

  • More CVS deal ideas from feelgood: “Besides the Sure spray for $2.00, there’s also a men’s Brut spray for $2.00. The 5/3 SS has separate $1.00/1 coupons for each. I bought a bunch, got one $1.00 ECB which is all I expected, it did say limit 1. These are normally around $5 and almost never go on sale, so I didn’t mind stocking up for $1.00 each.”

Mariano’s

  • A find from seachicago: “Here’s a “sweet” Mother’s Day activity for the kids! Check your own Mariano’s, but the S. Loop store has this activity tomorrow (Sat. 5/9) from 11am – 2:00pm: kids can decorate a 5 in. single layer cake for mom, $3.”

Meijer

  • Finds from feelgood: “Went to the east Bolingbrook Meijer, Gillette worked like a charm! For a filler, I got Crest toothpaste tagged $1.99 which also displayed the $5 OYNO with $20 P&G purchase, and used Crest $1.00/1 mq from 5/3 P&G. Got the $5 OYNO right after I paid. They also had Fast Fixin’ frozen 24 oz chicken nuggets, marked for clearance at $2.49. On the self-price checker and at the checkout they rang up $1.49 each. I used $1.00/1 printables from the Fast Fixin’ site so ended up paying $0.49 for each big bag!”
  • Julie comments: “For feelgood, I’m not sure which sw burbs you are near, but Flossmoor is getting a Meijer this year, I believe they just broke ground recently, so you may have another option to try in the future. I’m in Homewood, so I can’t wait. The closest 2 to me are Tinley Park, which is a smaller Meijer and Highland, IN, which is huge, but also seems to run out of things pretty quickly.”
  • And for those having problems with competitor coupons, liz shares: “Feel good..the meijer I go to is in Niles..I haven’t had a problem there for at least 6 months so they must of told the cashiers”

Reader requests

  • Joe asks: “My 20 year old Mrs.Tea pot just died.Any ideas on how a can replace it.I looked around but the ones I found on line are ridciously expensive.I don’t need an exact Mrs Tea replacement(I’m not sure they are even made anymore)but something similar that brews 2 or so cups of tea would be great.Thanks for any help  “

Target

  • Do the Hillshire Farm American Craft deal sooner than later, because as Valentina S. points out: “The Cartwheel offer is good through 5/9.”
  • Looking at the Fitbit Flex deal? Christina M. comments: “I tried it and found it too bulky. Plus, the reviews on the accuracy of the Fitbit were not great. I have been wearing the Misfit Shine for a few months now and really like it. It’s slimmer and I forget I’m wearing it. Plus, people often think it’s jewelry rather than a tracker.”

Ultra Foods

  • Cran4 points out that there are Quaker granola bar coupons for the $1.88 weekend deal. $1.00/3 in the 4/12 RP.

Mariano’s

  • Don comments on the hydrangea sale: “6.5″ potted hydrangeas – ZONE 7,8,9 – for indoor use or as an annual”

Meijer

  • Another use for the Gillette Fusion coupons from llz A: “it was 4.99 at Meijer bought 4..spend 20.00 get 5.00 back so add another p&g item for better than free. On another note..i had cut coupons and didn’t zip my binder all the way on my way oput of the store. Nice breeze blowing and lots of coupons fall out of my binder…handsome man is collecting my coupons as they are blowing in the parking lot…I was embarrassed!”
  • But feelgood replies: “Surprised that your Meijer accepts Walgreens coupons. Which Meijer was that? The two Meijer stores I go to, don’t.”
