Fruitful Yield

  • Jeanne shares: “Fruitful Yield on Essington in Joliet carries the Kalona Supernatural Milk. I was in there today and I think it was $4.22 each, so still not a bad deal.”

Meijer

  • From liz: “went to Meijer today..on mperk there was a 1.50 off Klondike bar 6pack and they were on sale for 2.50..so 1.00, also I had a 2.00 mperk store coupon for any “pac” dishwasher detergent. they have cascade and finish 20 pac’s for 3.99 so use they 2.00 and I had 1.00 man. coupons for both so take your pick for .99 detergent!”
  • Kerri reports: “I didn’t try to do 16 but I did buy 5 steam fresh and 3 Oscar Mayer and the $8 came off.”

Reader requests

  • Sent over by james: “I am looking for a McDonalds who is selling the Halloween Treat coupon books – I live in the Tinley Park and have tried several McDonalds in my surrounding burbs and no one has them. I went so far as to call the Oak Brook headquarters. They were no help – most of the stores are franchised and its up to the owner. Last year my son found then in the Pilsen area. If anyone knows of any McD’s selling them – please post it on MUM!”
  • Jane says: “I got the same Cat. alert for the cheese today at Kroger. Wonder why we didn’t hear about this until now since it says it’s been going on since the 8th of Sept? I haven’t checked any other stores prices yet on Kraft blocks. Anyone see a good price, please post it here!” It is NOT printing at Meijer.

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!

Ace Hardware

  • From DON: “GREAT POST – I have 2 [rain barrels] and they are great !!!! Great for the environment and water savings $$”
  • And letsshop agrees: “Yes me too but much larger capacity ,and love them .”

Gift Cards

  • Denise shares: “I go to Starbucks three times a week and buy at least three drinks every time (more if the kids are home from school or we have guests) — which means we spend a lot of money there. Buying Starbucks cards from Raise has been amazing. I pay around $80 for each $100 card – who wouldn’t want to save 20% right off the top? It’s super easy to buy the card and then transfer it to my registered card/app. I tend to buy a months’ worth at a time or, if they’re having a really nice bonus of some sort, I’ll buy even more because I’m obviously going to be able to use them.”
  • DON adds: “I have purchased no less then 25 GC’S from RAISE and have saved countless amounts of $$ – I swear by this place and your ecard is delivered same day via email – normally within an hour, which means that when Rachel posts one of the amazing online deals I immediately go to the Raise site and purchase a gc, if I dont already have one here, and use that card and make the deal that much sweeter !!!! This is one of the best ways to save and very few people know about this place …..”
  • Gramma asks about Cardpool: “Have any of you guys used this company? Any problems?”
  • DON responds: “I have and here is the email I already got from them… I have purchased before as well Thanks for your order! You saved 13% off your order by buying $35.09 in items for only $30.52. Your order should arrive within 3-7 business days. Your order number is #65367 and you have been billed for the amount of $30.52. We’ll email you again when your order has shipped. You ordered the following items: 1. $35.09 CVS Gift Card, sold at a 13% discount for $30.52. Note: This is a Paper Gift Card that can be used at any CVS location.”

Jewel

  • Krystle reports: “Bought 1 pack yesterday afternoon @ the Addison location on Lake St and my final price was $8.99 after $3.50 discount.”

Meijer

  • Andi asks: “For the Meijer Buy 8 Save 8, I’m also wondering if you can do 8 of each of the sales, or if they are just one sale. There is a limit of one per transaction, but in the ad, it looks like they are separate sales.”
  • And Chicago mom wonders: “For the tena deal can you use it for pads?”

School pictures

  • Susan posts on Facebook: “I do wish I saw this before I ordered my sons pics. But, I do try to volunteer at school on picture day, and they actually give you a free package for your child. It’s a long day, but worth it!!”

Target

  • A heads up from ellen: “i got 3 colgate enamel health toothpaste but they did not generate a gift card. i went to the service desk and she couldnt find any info on it but she said that they tell the employees the customer is always right so she gave me a $5gift card.”

Ultra Foods

  • From ellen: “i was able to use 2 expired $1/2 7up 10 coupons on the 2lt bottles. some flavors of the Campbell’s slow kettle soups were on sale for $1.79. i used the $.75 printable and got a $1.50 catalina back for buying 2. i wasnt sure if i would get 2 catalinas for buying 4 so i did 2 transactions. out of pocket after the catalina was $1.16 for 4.
    lipton tea bags 100 ct. are on sale 2/$5 and i got an email advertising the new packaging with a link to a $1/1 coupon so 100 tea bags for $1.50.”
  • Nancy is wondering: “Anyone have any problems using some printable coupons at Ultra? I was at the Ultra in Crestwood today, and they would not take my $1.50 Bob’s Red Mill coupon (expired 9/15). The cashier didn’t even scan it…she went to the service desk for 5 minutes to check if they could take it. When she came back, she told me they couldn’t take it because it was ‘photocopied’. I told them I do not use coupons fraudulently and that this coupon was printed from the Bob’s Red Mill site. I told the manager to go on their web site and see that they offer coupons, for future reference. Also, they don’t take Hopster coupons! Again, because they are ‘photocopied’.”
  • Jane says: “All of Bob’s Red Mill coupons are PDF files. I had this same issue before at Ultra and after I explained it to the CS lady, she took them “just this once” for me. Then a few weeks later I was denied using the printable Fresh Express coupons you print after you enter codes from buying salad bags in the Salad Swap challenge. They said they did not match the picture on the coupon (which said “any”) of the salad bag. I ended up contacting the mgr. on their web site (Thanks to Rachel for suggesting) and he personally sent back an email telling me he was sorry and they should have taken my coupons along with sending me a $10 gift card for my troubles! I would contact them about your issue as well. Some staff are not properly trained and are worried they may get into trouble if they take fraudulent coupons is all.”

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.
    I entered 2 codes and received a $1 off two coupon.  You can only print once.  So with the Jewel sale, you could get a bag for a dollar. The website is www.saladswap.com  Click on Sign Up under the 30 day salad swap.”

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.”

Chicago Tribune

  • Nancy R comments: “Chicago Tribune – bumped up to $32.00 for 12 weeks (Wed/Thur/Fri/Sun). Called and cancelled as we don’t read enough of it to justify the cost. Finally the rep let me cancel and offered me “FREE” valu pack savings every Sunday, even after I cancel. Got the first value pack today delivered with my paper (My subscription ends next week). Got the Sun- time coupons in the valu pack = free coupons for canceling the tribune!”

Kroger

  • And Melissa reports: “They do have an expiration date but I have found with the new mperks it is very generous. All of the ones I have earned this month don’t expire until 11/11/14.”

Reader requests

  • VB asks: “So in 2012 We bought our kids the Nabi tablets and purchased the warranties for them. Luckily we did since it looks like there is a flaw in the port connection that doesn’t allow them to charge without applying pressure. Anyway we are getting our money refunded (thank you warranty!) and I have decided to buy the kids an Ipad mini to replace the tablets. What we liked about the nabi’s is that they were very kid durable. Does anyone have recommendations on cases for ipad minis to make them more child proof?”
  • Kari O. responds: “Lifeproof. Expensive but worth every penny. My five year old and two year old haven’t destroyed or even scratched our iPad and it’s been 1.5 years. It’s even waterproof too. :)”
  • Shandelle is wondering: “Question for ladies. I finally found the $3.49 smaller packs of Tena restocked at my Target and got 8 tonight. Has anyone else used these for menstruation? I know they’re intended for incontinence but honestly would they work ok like normal pads? Just curious if anyone else has ever tried. This is my first time ever doing a free Tena deal so I don’t know anything about how well they’re made.”
  • Kari O.’s opinion: “It’s useable but definitely stiff and feels like you’re wearing a diaper. I donated all my mm tena to a worthy grandma.”

Sam’s Club

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “I went to the Sam’s open house and had the same experience as the first person that posted. Waited forever then most of the stuff they used to carry and the only reason I went was no longer being carried. The store was a mess. Thankfully there is Costco. Much better experience.

Target

  • Faith on Facebook found: ” At my Target (Central Indiana) Mead college-ruled composition books were marked down to nine cents. Plus, I had one of the $1.00 off any Mead coupons left, which came off, so 11 of them were free!
  • An idea from Ashley: “PM COD Ghosts to Amazon. In same transaction add a $1 reservation card and pay $2.69!
