Coupons

  • Annette says: “I was at Ultra Food today and found tear coupon pads for $1.50 off ONE Kraft cheese or dairy product. I post a pix , but don’t know how. It works at the Jewel cheese sale.”
  • Diane asks: “Which Ultra? Thanks!”

Donations

  • Katie emails: “In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wanted to send out a request to our local couponers. On October 18th, Mutual Ground domestic violence shelter in Aurora will be holding it’s annual Walk For Hope. The center is always in need of monetary donations of course, but they are currently in need of items most of us have tons of laying around the house or have the ability to get for almost free. Shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, cleaning supplies, diapers,baby wipes, etc. are items that they are currently very short on. The center donation information is below. I am looking for anyone in the area willing to come out on the 18th to donate items directly to the shelter and if they feel moved to so, come out and walk with us.”

Mariano’s

  • SoapboxTray shares: “I saw this fantastic coupon book at Mariano’s in Vernon Hills. Store coupons able to combine with Man Q’s. If anyone has seen these before let me know I am curious if they will continue and have a new one tomorrow. This one ends 10/1.
    marianos book
    I utilized the Barilla Pasta 88¢ with store coupon, and I had a $1. off 3 boxes IP which doubled to make it 64¢ for all 3 or 21¢ a box. Flav-R-Pac Classics were 75¢ and used the 35¢ IP doubled to make them 5¢ a bag. Brownberry Store Coupon $1.98 each. 9/7 SS $1. off 2 doubled makes it $1.96 for 2 or 98¢ each wyb2. The Kalona milk is still $4. if you still have the coupon, $2. after coupon.” It may be a bit late for this book, but definitely worth being on the lookout for the next one!

Meijer

  • A find from liz: “at the Niles Meijer, back in the clearance shelf 36ct green mountain keurig coffee 50% off doesn’t expire till nov 20. Just 8.49 for 36 ct!!”
  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “Meijer in Bolingbrook on Boughton (off the expressway) had a lot of Soda Stream machines for 50% off at $50 each. I get the refills at Bed bath and Beyond with a $5 off $15 coupon. :) I know some people have jerryrigged their soda streams with CO2 canisters from diving equipment…”

Target

  • From VB: “hello kitty costumes are 50% off with cartwheel coupon and then you can combine that with the mobile coupon for a better deal.” Text SPOOKY4 to 827438 for $5/$25 Halloween costumes or accessories.

Walgreens

  • On the flaxseed, letsshop asks: “Went to 2 Walgreen stores ,couldn’t find !is it the large book or small ?”
  • And Outlander shares: “My store has it tagged $6.99- $5 Q in a book. But after I paid I also got 50 cent reward, so it’s $1.49 AFTER Q and rewards. I only found one.”

Amazon

  • On the Charmin, Kari O. says: “The app keeps telling me there is a $3 Instant Savings but doesn’t calculate it. So, we either just missed it OR it’s still upcoming.”
  • For Finish tabs, Liz posts on Facebook: “These are usually pretty easy to get cheap with coupons. I’ve gotten them at Jewel and Target”
  • And on the Gold Box cookware, Charlotte warns: “Be aware that even though the box and website and stuff might say they can be put in the dishwasher, there is a booklet with it that says you can not. I had the same issue with my Rachel Ray cookware. I tried one pan in the top rack of the dishwasher, and it’s totally toast. The lids might work fine though. My RR lids go in the dishwasher, no problem. Disappointing, because I have a 8 year old HA pan from Aldi (Crofton brand) and I LOVE it. It goes in the dishwasher. no problem. I can use metal in it (though I generally don’t), and no issues.”

Household tips

  • From anne: “Another storage technique I recently started using and LOVE is for scarves — I bought a super cheap over-the-door shoe storage ‘thing’…it’s one that has clear plastic pockets. I use it to store all my scarves, belts, and other miscellaneous things like winter hats. The little pockets hold the scarves perfectly, I can see everything at a quick glance, and it looks really cool.” See, I wanted to do something like that, but I have accordion doors on the closet and the door to the actual room is configured in such a way that nothing other than the tiniest hook can be on the back. Grr, I am jealous of the extra storage!

Loyalty programs

  • SoapboxTray shares: “this weekend we stopped at Thorntons and they have a new rewards card, and for the first month you get 10¢ off per gallon. ThorntonsInc dot com and check out the Refreshing Rewards.” Thanks so much! I got it today. It was super easy and I got $.10/gallon right away after registering on the kiosk in the store.
  • Kari O. adds: “Keep in mind you can use the discount for 20 times at the pump. If you don’t get gas 20 times in 30 days… Have your spouse/child use the same rewards card. After 30 have THEM get the card… It’s kinda awesome. Plus you earn free drinks and candy bars.”

Organic milk

  • Pam says: “I used to buy Horizon as well till I read more about it on this website  Out of a possible 5 “cows” (which rates organic practices, transparency, etc), Cornucopia institute gives Horizon ZERO. So, I buy Sassy Cow (5 cows) when I make it out to Caputo’s in Naperville, or Organic Valley (4 cows) elsewhere.”
  • And on the Sassy Cow milk, she adds: “Actually, I just realized it has been a while since I’ve been to Caputo’s to get it, but they would have it on sale sometimes for $4.99 a gallon. Let me know if you find it there and what the price is running.”
  • And peaches adds: “Dean’s owns Horizon now, and I have heard that the farmer’s don’t like doing business with Horizon anymore. I do love their low fat eggnog though, and that is the only thing that they make that I buy. I personally don’t like the taste of Organic Valley. I love oberweis milk, and yes I know it is not organic, but it is close, and no Jim Oberweis is not involved with the company anymore. If I could afford it, I would drink nothing but oberweis. I have not tried it, but I have heard that Kalona milk is supposed to be good too, and is organic too. They carry it at Whole Foods, but it is $5.19 a half gallon..”

Mariano’s

  • After Don shared that he got a substitution for the Kalona organic milk, Pam said: “Don–thanks for the update! Wish they would have given me the option to get another organic milk, but didn’t think to ask, ended up paying full price for the Organic Valley.”
  • And peaches was wondering: “Hi- They let you use the $2 off coupon too? Somebody on LTH just posted yesterday that they went to the Mariano’s in Northfield for the first time on Saturday, and she loved the store, but she said that the CS was inferior. When she asked anybody any questions, they were unable to give her an answer, and she said that while she was waiting in the checkout lane, the person in front of her was buying a yellow pepper which was missing the sticker, and so the cashier made him go back and get another one that had a sticker on it. Peg will not be going back there very soon.”
  • Finally she asks: “Are any of the Mariano’s stores carrying this Kalona milk?”
  • SoapboxTray responds: “I saw it last week at the Vernon Hills store for $4.”

News

  • From peaches: “I just saw this on Eater.com, where I was reading the review of the Food Network’s all day program that took place at Ravinia this last Saturday, and drew 10,000 people at $99+ a pop. Whole Foods is going to trial a rewards program at their Princeton, New Jersey store in the next few weeks, and if it is successful, they are going to expand it to the Philadelphia area by the end of the year, and if it is well received, they are going to go national with the program by the end of 2015. Apparently their stock has decreased in value recently by 25%, partly due to the fact that places like Walmart have started carrying more organic produce, and for less money than what Whole Foods is charging. I was in the new Walmart on Touhy in Skokie for a few minutes to look at microwaves, and I took a look at their grocery section, and their produce looked tired. Apparently they are trying to get people inside the door of Whole Foods that have never been there before. I am afraid that they are going to turn away some of the long standing Whole Foods customers, many of whom hate rewards programs, and some of them would start shopping at Jewel where they don’t have to deal with it. They say that this is going to be the first time they are going to have a rewards program, but I remember maybe ten years they had one, and they had to abandon it because a lot of customers hated it, and said that the reason they shopped at Whole Foods was because they did not have a rewards program like Dominick’s and Jewel did. I know that Whole Food’s business went down when the economy tanked maybe three or four years ago, but I thought it had picked up since then, and when I go in Whole Foods, I always see lots of shoppers. there, but Evanston does not have a Walmart, and because of Northwestern people there are more into organic food, and the downtown Evanston farmer’s market on Saturday morning is packed.”

  • Don posts on Facebook: “I have been looking for a deal on a counter microwave – something small to mid size and nothing fancy – tyia”

Walgreens

  • A tip from Caroline on Facebook: “”I buy the bags of [cashew] pieces at Wags for $1.99 when on sale and fill up the Planters container with 3 bags and it comes out to the same price. About two weeks ago I got points so it made it an even better deal at Wags.”

Carson’s

  • A reminder from ellen: “dont forget Carsons has the Goodwill sale going. Accepting donations till the 23rd and you can use the coupons until October 4th. you can use the coupons on make up and other things that dont usually go on sale.”

Coupons

  • Jill shares a tip for Spirit Halloween: “The ‘Coupon Sherpa’ app also has it and you can use it an unlimited number of times, I think.  There are also MANY other store coupons in the app.”

CVS

  • A report from kelly: “I did the L’Oreal Scrubbers deal today.  To make the deal even sweeter, I had a magic machine coupon from a week or two ago that expires on 9/24 for 25% off any facial cleanser/moisturizer.  So that took another $2.50 off the deal!  Also, not sure if this was already mentioned, CVS has the Wet n Wild nail polish at Buy 2, get 3rd free.  So I got 3, used 2 $1 off coupons and got 3 polishes for free.”

Freebies

  • On the Redbox rental today only, Swimpg says: “Good for free DVD rental or $1.20 off BluRay which comes to $.30+tax”

Mariano’s

  • An idea from SoapboxTray: “These [Flav-R-Pac veggies] are usually around 99¢ regular price at Mariano’s and good one to keep on hand for Double Daze Wednesday.”
  • DON reports: “I was at the Shorewood location today and one of the managers there were super terrific , she asked the store district about this [Kalona milk] and was told they have no plans to carry this product, however, they would be willing and able to special order this and be sure they accepted the coupon when it came in…,. I asked if she might be willing to offer an organic for the equivalent price of $2 per 64 oz after coupon, she walked with me to the dairy case, across the entire store, and allowed me to pick any organic 64 oz that I wanted at the same price. I spotted a couple Horizon cartons and they accepted the deal…. I am super impressed with the c/s they gave me without batting an eye about it.”

Target

  • Shandelle says: “There’s also $.25 back on eggs good at Target for the above deal (also works at WM & other stores) in the JINGIT iphone app. Jingit has changed the way they do things so it’s MUCH easier to cash out now. The minimum seems to be $5 and you can cash out for various gift cards. The app has all sorts of barcode scanning things very similar to Shopkick and also earnings for watching short videos, similar to Ibotta. I just cashed out today for a $5 Walmart eGift card while I was in the store. It’s definitely an app I’ll be keeping a closer eye on from now on, since they do quite a few offers good on any brand eggs, milk, bread, etc.”
  • Sarah shares: “Here’s what I did for the Target beauty deal since I really needed my Olay moisturizer. It is B1G40% off for moisturizers, cleansers, and wipes. So there are definitely lower priced items, which would make for an even better deal. Purchased 2 Regenerist moisturizers that were $23.99 each full price. After the B1G40% sale, $10/$35 beauty purchase, 2 $4/1 coupon (was from a separate sheet either last week or the week before), and 5% Olay cartwheel, I was at $20.84 ($10.42 each) including tax. Not bad for something that would have cost almost $50 with tax included at full price :-)”
  • From veronica: “I just did this deal
    • 4 Olay regenerist cleanser $5.99.  $23.96 . Used four $4/1  9-14 PG flyer
    • 4 Garnier shampoo & conditioner $2.99.  $11.96 . Used four $2/1
    • Total was $35.92 . Used $10/$35 in ad, plus above Q’s
    • Paid $1.92 for 8 items or .24 each!!!”

Walgreens

  • A $4.00/2 Pantene idea from VB: “Saving them for the Walgreens deal next week for $.50 shampoo and conditioners. They have a spend $20 select p&g get 5000 points. Pantene will be on sale 3/$10. Get 6 bottles for $20 use 3 of these coupons come to $8. Get back 5000 points!”

Gift Cards

  • Nikki shares: “I’ve purchased several Starbucks gc from Raise and always transferred the amount from the voucher to my Starbucks card without any problems. All of the Starbucks gc I’ve purchased have been at a 20% discount. Last week I purchased Subway and the actual gc was received in the mail within 5 days of the original purchase. I am very careful to only buy gc that have good discounts and there are many.”
  • From Kim: “Gramma, I have purchased from cardpool many times without problems. I have found it a great way to save a little extra money. If nothing else, the savings cover taxes. Combined with other sales and discounts, it’s a win!”
  • Jen adds: “My apologies if someone already mentioned this, but Target actually discounts some gift cards when you use your Red Card. Now, I do NOT know if it’s all gift cards or just specific types because, frankly, I haven’t gotten around to researching it yet. But I know some are eligible because I bought Disney cards and got the discount. We’re going to Disney World and I had learned on one of the Disney travel forums that if you bought the cards at Target you’d get 5% off and they can be used to pay for hotels, food, etc. None of the employees at Target knew, and in fact they insisted it wouldn’t work, so I bought one test card and it worked like a charm. Now I’m buying batches of cards each time I’m there, which is helping us pay for our vacation slowly over time AND saving us 5%.”
  • Maureen says: “Jen, you are so right – we paid for both a Disney Cruise and a Disney vacation with gift cards from Target. When you’re spending 1000s on a family vacation a 5% savings can add up to hundreds of dollars.”
  • Another option from Kari O.: “I reload my Starbucks goldcard at the kiosks inside Target and use my RedCard…. Automatic 5% discount. An employee told me about it. I also sometimes use MM Target giftcards as payment to reload my Starbucks goldcard. lol”
  • But Rita says: “I checked Panera and Subway discounts on Raise. These are not a deal. Check out giftcardgranny.com for any merchant you are interested in. A listing of all sellers show up with discount and fees. Click on the ‘discount’ heading and they will be listed highest to lowest. They also reference return policies of each company. I buy cards often. Have had two issues with the value not being on the card but was refunded quickly by both companies. Use them within the guarantee.”

Kohl’s

  • A heads up from Charlotte: “My husband has a lot of these shirts. Be aware that they are fairly thin and with regular use will last 9 months to 1 year.”

Jewel

  • From dani: “thanks Yvette, so I ventured over to jewel on wise and roselle and sure enough 12.49 minus 3.50. I stocked up big time. If I can get double rolls for 30 cents or less…it’s major stock up time. I would have bought more, but I am afraid of my husband’s response. the kids right now are having a super fun time in the basement playing nerf guns with the TP walls that they built. I did pay 12.49 plus minus a 1Q at my palatine store which is still a stock up price fur us. thanks again! if you are in the Schaumburg area…go get some TP. They still had a lot there.”
  • And Cari says: “Palos heights $12.49-$3.50 instant =D”

Mariano’s

  • Rita comments: “The Ortega black beans w/jalapenos are priced at $.89. Use the $1.00/2 on Wednesday Double daze and get them for free. I think the link is ortega.com/promotions. I make 4 cups of rice (cooked) and then mix with bite sized Kielbasa that I have browned, a can of ortega black beans w/jalapenos, a can of corn, a couple of handfuls of grated cheese, cumin to taste (I like alot) and a splash or two of chicken broth and call it dinner! Obviously you can really play around with the ingredients on this one!”
  • A warning from Pam: “Ugh, so I went to the Mariano’s in Shorewood, they did not have this milk. Couldn’t even find a spot for it. Finally asked a guy and he said that they were having a problem with receiving milk that was only a week away from expiration, and ended up often throwing a ton of it out, so until “they fix the problem” they are not going to carry it. Hmmm….maybe it might not have been a good idea to put it in the ad, then? Also, didn’t have much of the Noosa yoghurt. None of the flavors that I wanted were in stock, such as Pineapple, Honey, or the seasonal Pumpkin. Man, do I wish that store was still a Dominick’s! Really not impressed at all!”

Meijer

  • From Ashley on the diapers: “Some of the Jumbo packs are 38ct or more, and not triggering, but people are calling catalina and having it honored. But it is rolling, even though it is a store coupon”

Reader requests

  • From Laura: “Hi Don, and fellow rain barrel users. I too am a rain barrel fan. But the mosquitos this year have been so bad because of all the rain. so my question is Are mosquito laying eggs inside my rain barrels? If so what do I do about it? Thanks”
  • Pam asks: “I’m wondering about Zaycon Foods chicken…..we’ve purchased it before and were happy with our purchase but that was before the whole “chinese chicken” I’ve read about. Zaycon’s site says the chicken comes directly from the “processor” but where does it come from before that? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!”

Target

  • On expiration dates changing, Kari O. says: “Cartwheel offers can disapear quicker than intended, kinda like when printable coupons are out of prints. So, most likely the offer is nearing its limit so the expiration date got moved up quicker.”

Treasure Island

  • From seachicago: “Here’s a decent Barilla deal for city shoppers: Treasure Island has most varieties of Barilla pasta on sale this week for 88 cents, limit 4. Barilla sauce is also on sale for $2.50, and I found a tearpad next to the sauces with a q for $1 off Barilla sauce when you buy 2 Barilla pastas. So, buy 4 pastas (use 2qs 55 cents/2 from 9/7 SS) and 2 sauces (use 2 $1 tearpad qs) for $5.42 + tax. I think TI is a Centrella store, so maybe this deal is running at other stores, too.”

Walgreens

  • A report from savinlikeu): “Went to Walgreens and purchaced 3 bags of Riesen candys (Love these!) and out prints a manf. Q for 2$ off three, stack with wags store Q and there only aprox. .17 each piece I of course rinse, lather, repeated! Each time you get a new 2/off 3 Q”
  • Kitty emails: “Walgreens has Mentos candy on a monthly deal for 59c. Shopmium has 50c back, so 9c.”

Whole Foods

  • Something to check for from Eun: “I have a $1 Imagine Chunky Style Soups (Italian Style Wedding is considered “chunky”) offer from checkout51. Check if you have it too?” Not everyone does, but worth checking!

Household tips

  • On the Ziploc Perfect Portions, Kate says: “We always use these bags for our Zaycon chicken! Perfect way to keep the chicken fresh and free from freezer burn. We put one breast in each perfect portion bag and then put 10-12 in a ziploc bag. Easy, mess free way to pull out exactly what we need for dinner!”
  • SoapboxTray shares: “I put banana’s in a large flat ziploc container (kind of shoe box size) and stack them in the freezer. I use banana’s frozen all the time in my smoothies. The banana’s pull away from each other fairly easy and break easily in pieces for your bullet or blender. Just hate to see you spend that much on wrapping individual bananas! :-)”

Jewel

  • Jane says: “There is a printable coupon for the Jell-o pudding on Smartsource for 55c/2. That makes it 52c each for the big boxes of pudding when you buy 4 items.”
  • On the Quilted Northern deal:
    • yvette found it ringing up for $12.49 then $3.50 instant savings coming off (worked on a single pack as well as $7.00 coming off two), making it $8.99 at the Roselle/Wise store in Schaumburg.
    • Judy S. calculated: “That works out to $.25/double roll.”

  • Kelly emails: “Here’s another deal I saw on My coke rewards website.  You get a free pretzel if you download their app and the first 25,000 people get 10 free coke reward bonus points.  I did it 2 days ago, got my reward for a free pretzel, and got the free pretzel today while shopping at Stratford Mall.  That’s a $3 value.  It says it takes 7-10 days to get the 10 points, so I don’t know yet if I received that yet.  Here’s the weblink.”

Mariano’s

  • Rita found: “The Ekrich sausage is 2/$5 at Mariano’s so $.50 each after doubling of coupon which you can do on Wednesday’s! Just grabbed myself some today! I’ve been adding this to the pan when I roast veggies and potatoes in the oven and it makes for a quick yummy dinner!”

Meijer

  • Nancy noticed: “I saw a sign up today in Meijer near this detergent that said ‘Buy $25 of Clorox, Arm and Hammer, >>>, and _____ and get $5 off instantly’ I live in a Thursday-Wed. sale area, is this already going on? And if so, is it spend $20 or spend $25? Or is this another separate deal that is starting on Thursday?”
  • Kerri reports: “We are in Indiana and my mom went earlier this week. Both of the buy 8 save $8 were the same deal. She bought 2 deli fresh and 6 steam fresh and the $8 came off. Don’t know if this is the same everywhere or a glitch.”
  • So Nikki wonders: “Hmm-can you buy 16 in one transaction?”

Reader requests

  • Elizabeth on Facebook is wondering about Raise for discounted gift cards: “Has anyone tried this site… I have bought electronic CVS and Lucy and everything went smoothly each time!

Staples

Walmart

  • An idea from Jennifer: “Awhile back there was a Quaker rebate (I think in All You magazine?). Any idea if it’s still valid and can be used when price matching the [Jewel price for] Quaker Oats cereal at Walmart?” It is here, and says hrough 9/30 — although no guarantee it won’t run out like the Dr. Pepper one did on the last day or two.
  • Julie warns: “Make sure to compare sizes. We wanted to price match the granola bars a few weeks back, but Walmart carried slightly different sizes than everywhere else.”

  • For entertaining, Outlander says: “I read somewhere that the best way to do hot dogs in a slow cooker is just to stand them upright in an empty cooker and turn the heat on. Do not add any water because there’s enough water in them and they are already fully cooked. I haven’t tried it myself though.”

Also they fed me some delicious hash browns while shopping this morning. Yum… Some obscure coupon matches for Target: If you have the back to school little coupon book, Naked juice is in there $1. off 1, as well as a printable from savings.com I saw on TotallyTarget. $1. off 1 they end up being 49-69¢ I am holding out for a sale though there is a few more weeks on the Target Q. If you have the Pepsi Wild Cherry $2. off 2 6 pack 24 oz. or 7.5 oz. 8 pack; that was in a Jewel coupon book x9/10 (sorry I don’t know which one, all coupons expired in June except this one) use at Target where the bottles are 4 for $9. if you have 2 get 24, 24 oz. bottles for $5.!
