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.”
    • Mary J found it to be $12.49 AFTER the savings in Des Plaines.
  • Kelly emails: “Fresh Express Salad 30 Day rebate/coupon Fresh Express Coupons Offer Form ( New! Ongoing ) Receive For every two bags you enter up to 14 bags in 30 days they’ll email you a money-saving coupon OR Enter 15 salad bag codes within 30 days after signing up and get $50 in coupons to use throughout the year.

Loyalty programs

  • For Starbucks, Elizabeth posts on Facebook: “check youe emails..i just got an offer if you reload your card with visa get a $5 bonus with 25 or a $10 bonus with 50
  • 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.”

Freebies

Household tips

  • 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.”

Jewel

  • Something to look for from kitty: ” Found a large display of Keebler and Kelloggs products at Jewel in Glenview (Glen) with a  coupon booklet called “Kelloggs Fuel for School Lunches.” There are 11 coupons to save $1 or 75c on one product  WYB (usually 2 or 3) other products. The coupons expire 9-30-14.  “

Mariano’s

Meijer

  • From Andreana on Facebook: “Check out mperks. Head and shoulders is $4.99 a bottle and there is a mperk for $5 off 2 bottles. There are also other hair care products listed in the mperks system. Short expiration dates on mperks”

Target

  • SoapboxTray shares: “My husband came in the house “guess who’s Target favorite shopper is?!” I said ME!!!??? Great job Target. 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.!

Amazon

  • Found by feelgood, select Amazon accounts are receiving an offer for a free $10 promo code with a $50 gift card purchase. Sign into your account then click on this gift card promotion link, and you’ll either see the offer or a message saying your account is ineligible.

Costco

  • Sarah says: “I know that Costco always has Horizon organic creamer in the 32oz carton for that $4ish price. They also carry organic milk, but its not the Horizon brand. Their organic ground beef is a little over $4/lb which seems to be a good price. If you eat a lot of organic food, it seems like Costco would be a good place to go.”
  • She also shares: “I don’t know if this was a special deal or not, but at the Costco in North Riverside, they had an 8 pack of cartons of Kirkland Campbell’s soup tomato basil bisque soup for about $5 and they are delicious. I also got an 8 pack of Muir Glen fire roasted diced tomatoes for around $3. Right now La Croix sparkling water is $6ish for a pack of 30, which is a good price for that.”
  • Artie confirms: “Every Costco I’ve been to,7,carry Horizon half & half,and heavy cream. 64 oz cartons”
  • From Lori: “The [Namaste] GF flour is a favorite of my gluten free teen who loves to bake! We also have been purchasing the Nitrate free bacon at Cosco – I think it is $14.99 for three 12oz pkgs. My family loves bacon, but I hate to feed them Nitrates – and the bacon tastes great.”
  • Martha comments: “The organic milk is sold in multiple packs of 1/2 gal containers, and I want to say the works out to around $4 per 1/2 gal.”
  • SoapboxTray adds: “I regularly buy the Horizon half and half for creamer, I gave up the flavored ones about a hear ago. The expiration dates on the half and half is good too, usually a month or two out. Lake Zurich usually carries Horizon whipping cream too and the individual chocolate milks. There organic milk was $11 I believe for 3 half gallon containers.”
  • Martha shares: “I have a family of five and a few regular items I buy there are:
    • Kirkland/Starbucks Fair Trade coffee beans, it’s something like a 3 or 5lb bag for $10
    • Organic tortilla chips, a HUGE bag is about $3
    • Their 2pk of Kirkland multigrain bread is delicious and is $4, and does not have that yoga mat bread additive in it
    • Hamburger buns come in a 12 pack for about $2.30, nice big ones, also without the additive in it.
    • Usually I’ll buy them and we’ll have burgers and crumbly burgers (like sloppy joes) that week.
    • Their 4 lb packs of butter are between $8-9, so about $2 per lb
    • Their 24 pk of organic free range eggs are a little over $6, they can be found cheaper occasionally elsewhere, but for consistency, this is a decent price
    • They have a big pack of 6 romaine lettuce hearts for I think just under $4 that we get and use for salads, sandwiches, shred for tacos, etc.
    • At first I thought I was crazy for getting so many at once, but so far, I don’t know that we’ve had much waste when I’ve bought them.
    • I also buy their diapers when there is a coupon that month, it works out to be cheaper than Amazon Mom (both huggies and Kirkland), and
    • Oxyclean generally goes on sale for $4 off every couple of months, making it about $12-13 for the big box of it.
    • We used to always get string cheese there, but the price has gone up a bit over the past year or so. It is still a decent price at $10 for a 48 pack, but it used to be $8-something.”
  • Lynn says: “Charisma bath sheets (the great big towels) are $11.99. They have limited colors, but I bought off white and they’re less than half the price of other stores. They also now sell baguette style bread in their bakery and it’s delicious. The shorter fatter loaves were tasty, but the long skinny ones are more versatile for our family. I think they are $4.99 for 2. Fage nonfat yogurt is also a good deal. They increased the size of the container and raised the price – now 48 oz for $5.99, but delicious if you can eat the equivalent of 8 small containers by the expiration date (hint: only use a clean utensil to scoop; fruit remnants will encourage mold to grow quickly!). K-cups, organic chicken stock, sea salt, dog food and (for an occasional indulgence) cheeseburger flavor chips – weird, but oddly addicting – are recurring buys.”

Coupons

  • On the Starbucks coupon, Terri J reports: “Wouldn’t work at Walmart. Worked at Jewel with 1.00 overage.”
  • And Valentina S. points out: “Save $1.00 when you buy one single bottled Starbucks iced coffee offer is also on Saving Star. Exp. 9/15/2014. One time use only.”

Freebies

Jewel

  • A find from Liz: “I found GOT 2 Be hairspray on clearance at jewel in park ridge normally 4.99 priced at 2.49..use the man. coupon 2.50 off hairspray for free hairspray”

Kmart

  • Sent over by feelgood: “Sears & Kmart Coupon for Shop Your Way Members: $10 in Points w/ $10+ Purchase (Facebook Required)” Click earn $10 back in points here, click get offer, then they email the code/coupon.

Mariano’s

  • From SoapboxTray: “I buy my organic milk from Marianos. $4.99 for a gallon but it is in plastic.”
  • She adds: “Also noticed that Mariano’s had Kalona Super Natural Milk with cream on top! I was going to try it but didn’t want to get too much milk to haul into work. If anyone has tried curious to know how it is. $4. for half gallon.”
  • Something to look for from John W: “The front section of my Tribune today had a Mariano’s wraparound ad that included a $4/$40 coupon thru Sept 3 (it doesn’t seem to have any exclusions, has anybody tried to buy alcohol with it?). Also, some specials in the ad good through Sept 3, $3/lb fresh made Black Angus pub burgers, half gallon fresh orange juice $3.50, fresh wild swordfish $10.99/lb. Mariano’s is also running a daily $4 special announced on their facebook page each morning”
  • From peaches: “Every time I have been in the Northfield Mariano’s they have had the fresh squeezed OJ for $3.50. It is really good. I think it is a lost leader. They sell tons of it. “

Meijer

  • A report from liz: “just came back from Meijer in rolling meadow and they had about 30 trial size rave hairspray..free coupon expires in 3 days..excited I finally found them”

Savers

  • Kari O. warns: “In Utah and Oregon I LOVED these 50% Holiday sales, but here the Lake Zurich store has been a huge disappointment. They overprice their items anticipating this sale…. For example: Regular Used Under Armor shorts priced at $19.99 instead of the “normal” $9.99 during non-holiday times.
    So, if you’re in between Crystal Lake or Lake Zurich… Go to Crystal Lake! Or any other location. :)”

Target

  • Something to be on the lookout for, from Kari O.: “I got a new Target Mailer of $21 worth of coupons…. It’s adorable. ‘How do we thank you? Let us coupon the ways. As one of our favorite shoppers, we think you totally deserve it.’ I love Target….”
  • From ellen: “went to target today and got Pasta Chips on sale $2.00. I had a printable for $2/2 so they were $1 each after coupon. Hope I like them. I had 2 $1 target couons for scotch tape. they were on sale bogo50%off. I got ones that were $1.44 so just $.44 after coupons on the 2 of them.”
  • On the Glad deal, Like2save says: “FYI – The $3.44 trash bags are the 4 gallon size.”
  • Maureen says: “8 gallon, those are $3.44, too.”
  • And anne warns: “Just did this deal and the 50% off the second one didn’t come off. Of course I only noticed AFTER I left. BUT I had 2 mobile q’s for glad, one was for $2/1 and the other for $1/1. I bought 2 and should have paid $1.16 minus the 5% CW. Going back to the ad to see if it says the bogo half off is only on larger ones…”
  • From Shandelle: “Like anne mentions, there’s also $1 off one Glad trashbags with mobile coupon PACKITBACK exp 10/4. I think you could stack both since those mobile coupons are from different sets on the same phone and the store coupons are different values, if your store doesn’t let you use multiple of the same one (mine has never cared but others have said theirs won’t).”
  • She adds: “Also the Buy 1 get one half off is only for larger sizes per the ad on target.com. Good on 13 gallon at the smallest.”
  • She also says: “You should be able to scan coupons from multiple barcode sets on the same phone in the same transaction also.. Like if they’ve sent you several sets and you did some of the promo code ones. They all count as separate ones as long as the barcode is different and you’re following the rules of one store and one manufacturer per single item.”
  • And finally, she suggests a way to possibly get more than one of the same mobile coupon: “In my experience you can. I have a friend that never shops Target because it’s a half hour drive when he has WM & Meijer basically across the street. When he comes to visit me, he does the Target texts so I can use his. We’ve done 2 of the same mobile coupon from 2 phones/barcodes in one transaction before and it worked. YMMV as far as cashier resistance to trying, though.”
