Jewel

  • Laura sent some news about the fruit cards, “I asked on the Jewel-Osco Facebook page and they wrote back “We are happy to say that we will be having the fruit cards this year!” My mom just asked at another Jewel location and they asked the produce department and they said that the shipment of cards will arrive randomly at different stores so we just have to keep asking.”
  • Peaches reports on the Great Grains and Milk deal, “At the Jewel on Green Bay Road in WIlmette, they had Great Grains vanilla graham on clearance for $1.25. yesterday. There clearance department is way in the back of the store, right next to the milk.  When I scanned it  the scanner said it was $2.89, but when I took the cereal up to CS, it scanned at $1.25.  The cat you get for the milk though is only good for a week.”
  • Kari commented on the Rubbermaid Lunch Blox, These are also $7.99 at Jewel and isn’t there a coupon? (Yes, $1.50/1 in the 1/4 SS1)

Meijer

  • Feelgood sent this deal, “On Meijer mPerks, there’s a new FREE Yulu Aussie Style Yogurt coupon to clip, it expires Sunday 1/25. Had one earlier this week and redeemed it Friday, a new one appeared today! BTW, this yogurt is delicious!”

Reader Requests

  • Rosemary asks, “Thinking about summer…does anyone know how to get discounted tickets to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH? Thank you!”

Recipes

  • Missb2004 has a yogurt recipe, “I make my own yogurt too, but with my crock pot. I put 1/2 gal of whole milk into the crock pot, put the setting on low until the milk reaches about 175 degrees, then turn off the heat and let the milk come to about 115 degrees. Then I mix a cup of yogurt with a cup of warm milk, or yogurt culture in with a cup of warm milk, in with the milk in the crock pot. Place the lid back on, and wrap the entire crock pot in thick towels and blankets and let sit for 8-12 hours. Then I will strain through some muslin until the desired thickness is achieved, sometimes I don’t strain it at all. And refrigerate. It can keep for a week or so. It never lasts that long though, as I have three little boys that love yogurt, especially with some honey or maple syrup. I use it to make homemade frozen yogurt at times, and it’s wonderful. The strained of whey can be used in baking, making soup, and your plants will love it (never water plants with whey from making cheese though, it is too acidic). I know the steps sound like a lot, but honestly, most of it is just waiting.”

Turbo Tax

  • John sent some information on Turbo Tax, “The TurboTax offer is $25 if you used Deluxe last year to file your taxes and then bought Premier this year and used it to file your taxes. Note that if you’re a customer of State Farm Bank, you can get a download of Premier for $30 (not sure if Turbotax will honor the $25 with that, though).

Wayfair

  • Natstans sent a reply about the Wayfair question from yesterday, “I ordered 6 dining chairs  it was great     they were packed so well – not a problem or a scratch. customer service is also responsive”
  • Carol also has some comments, “Stacy – we ordered a kitchen set from Wayfair in September.  Typical pub height table and two chairs.  DH is handy, so he was able to assemble these w/o a problem.  Said it was one of the easiest assembly projects ever – holes lined up and correct hardware.  No scratches.  Packaged very well.  It came incredibly fast – 36 hours from when it was ordered. This set has no upholstery, so cannot comment on “cushiony comfort” for you, but the ordering process was great and I earned money to spend on a future purchase. Will not hesitate to order from them again.”

Jewel

  • Laura comments on deals of the week, “Went to Jewel in Minooka last night and the lady at the service desk said MyMixx will not work until the 28th. I asked about the Kids free fruit card and she didn’t have this years card but she said the old card’s still work. I didn’t try it though because I wasn’t sure if the cashier would know that.”
  • Laura also comments on New Essential Everyday coupons, “Essential Everyday has a new coupon save $1 when you buy any two bags of Essential Everyday frozen vegetables. Also the jewel brand coupons on the Jewel website are:  Save $1 when you buy 3 Essential Everyday canned vegetable items, 14 oz or larger. Save $1 when you buy 1 bag of Essential Everyday trail mix. Save $1 when you buy 3 cans of Essential Everyday kidney beans. Save $1 when you buy 2 boxes of Essential Everyday instant oatmeal. Save $1 when you buy 2 boxes of Essential Everyday popcorn. Save $1 when you buy 1 Essential Everyday dish detergent. Save $1 when you buy 1 Wild Harvest broth.”

Reader Requests

  • Jolynn sent some info on making yogurt, “Ive made yogurt a lot,  no special yogurt machine needed.  I heated milk on stove. Mix with a yogurt container and moved to crockpot.  Crock pot goes in warmed oven overnight.  It was too loose for me so I drained in the fridge.  Look up receipes on line for necessary tempertures.   It was too much work for just me. My kids woundnt eat it.   Fun to try.  Go for it!”
  • Donna also has a yogurt recipe, “I also make my own yogurt about every other week.  It is so easy, and I don’t use a yogurt maker. I just heat a gallon of milk to about 180 degrees.  Let it sit on the stove until it cools to about 110 – 115 degrees.  Then you have to mix it with prepared yogurt (just make sure the container says ‘Contains Live and Active Cultures’.  you need those to make yogurt.  Then I have an insulated pack that I set my bowl in and cover with towels and put in a warm spot to sit and culture overnight. In the morning I have yogurt.  I strain some of the whey from the yogurt since I like it more the consistency of Greek Yogurt.”

Butera

  • Brandy reports, “I very much dislike Butera as a market (produce is never very good), milk was $.99 and eggs were cheap as well (I think?). You have to spend $10, but I easily did that with a 12pk of beer that was also a decent price. Bacon is $2.99, which is cheaper than Aldi even.”

Check Out 51

  • Judy comments on Checkout 51, “Jewel Highland Park had a “try me free” rebate form on a display at for the Nature Valley® Nut Crisp Bars Dark Chocolate Almond or Salted Caramel Peanut varieties only.  Something to look out for.”

Coco Key

  • Liz reports on the Coco Key Half price deal, “I went to check the height restrictions on the slide and I noticed the day pass prices. Admission:Fridays: $10.00. Saturdays and Sundays: $15.00. So it isn’t quite half price.”

Container Store

  • Marsha says, “Some good holiday clearance at The Container Store – large, high quality rolls of wrapping paper (some of which didn’t look very Christmas-y!) at 90% off – $0.89. Some cute tins with stocking designs for $0.39. They also have stuff like wreath boxes, ornament boxes, etc at 50% off.”

Food For Less

  • Cathy comments on the Top 10 Deals,”DiGiorno Pizza is part of the buy 6 promo this week ($3.99 after instant savings).  I use printable $2 off 2 and received a cat for a dollar off next purchase.

Jewel

  • Mary Beth commented on the Jewel Deals of the week, “The MyMixx worked last night but the cashier was not sure how to do it and the customer service person said it doesn’t go live until next week but put in phone number and it worked.  It is just hard to find it on the receipt. Also on the McCormick Grill Mate – the tubs are not on sale for $1.00 it is the envelopes that are $1.00.  (They have the wrong picture in the ad.)”
  • Jane also has a comment on the deals of the week, “Has anyone seen if the special instant Quaker oatmeals are included in the buy 5 deal this week? The one where you can use the new $1/1 insert coupon on. I was just there doing the milk deal yet forgot to look for them too! Thanks.”
  • Also, we did the Bud Light/ Red Baron pizza deal and there are coupons that make it even a better deal. Buy 1-12 pack of Bud bottles ($7.99) plus 2 classic Red Baron frozen pizzas and you get $5 off instantly. The pizzas are $3 each and there is an insert coupon for $1/2 making the whole deal only $7.99 for the beer AND 2 pizzas!
  • Julie reports on the Sara Lee snacks coupon, “FYI – It prints with a big ink/paper wasting ad if you only print a single coupon.”
  • Erin reports, “Jewel in DeKalb has Starbucks from Christmas reduced to $2. With coupon equals 1 dollar a bag! Also have k cups for $2 if you still have that coupon.”
  • Martha sent this, “I keep forgetting to post this. The Bolingbrook jewel at boughton & weber has these turkey broths marked down for over a week now. I keep expecting them to disappear, but they are still restocking them. They have long expirations too – December ’15 and later.

Broth

Meijer

  • Anne says, “Thanks for posting this – awesome deal.  (Great Kleenex Scrubbing Bubbles) I did as above except did 4 toilet cleaner gels (because I like it a lot) and used 2 BOGO mfr and 1 Target.  It all worked great!  Also, softline clearance (except kids’ & baby clothes) and office supply clearance were an extra 25% off.  The additional 25% off DID work on kids’ shoes/boots and Bears clearance gear, though, and signs were posted on those items.”
  • Liz adds, “normally 4 pack jimmy dean delight (6.99) breakfast sandwiches on clearance for 2.02 in niles..and a 1.00 off 1 on mperks…”
  • Andrew commented on the Free Floss at Meijer, “Yes, this is true of any mPerk coupon of any value with a 10 for 10, 11th free sale. The free item will always be the “lowest” priced item. So with the floss example, the floss is free via mPerk and the system will assign a discount of $0 to the floss as the 11th free item. As another example, say you had $1/2 MQ for a 10/10 item. The system will make one of these items the “free” item and only apply a $0.50 discount to the other like item. This applies to digital mPerk coupons only. Paper coupons will not fall victim to the “lowest price” rule. The free item will always be the 11th item scanned if you have matching paper coupons. However, you want to make sure an item for which you have a paper coupon is not the 11th item scanned. The system will automatically adjust the paper coupon value down. With the $1/2 example, if these were scanned as items 10 and 11, the paper coupon would only take $0.50 off since one item was already reduced to $0.”

Reader Requests

  • Monique asks, “I’m new to using a smartphone. Is there any magic app that successfully combines grocery lists by store, pantry including what needs to be restocked and a price book?… I currently print out spreadsheets for grocery lists and pantry restock list and never have gotten the knack of using a price book. I’m guessing “not”. Short of that, any recommendations on where I should start?”
  • Letsshop asks, “Has anyone ever made yogurt ? looks pretty easy but scared since I know  no one who has made it before ! Including me  (:”
  • Kay answers, “Yes, easy! I make it all the time for my dogs (I don’t like yogurt) I heat milk in a bowl, until boiling in the microwave – using my temperature probe. Then cool to warm and stir in a bit of yogurt. I then put my bowl in a crockpot and fill around the bowl with warm water. I ‘cook’ it on low oevernight. Yogurt!”
  • Brandy replies about making yogurt, “I’ve tried to make yogurt with that Kickstarter yogurt maker that was super popular and it was a huge pain in the behind! I’ll never do it again. Gave it away on Freecycle. Hah.”
  • And from Suzann, “A long time ago I had a Salton yogurt maker and used every couple weeks.  Thought I would like this better than store yogurt since I do not like yogurt (too sour just like I hate sour cream as a garnish ).”
  • Liz has a request, “I need another person on my team for ibotta…anyone?”

Schnucks

  • Debbie says, “I’m sorry but the biscuits I listed were not a deal ($1.50).  I was comparing it to the Schnuck’s that was posted for your area, 10/$10 making it $1 for you, $1.50 for me.  I thought the price would be the same no matter which Schnuck’s you go to.”
  • Rachel responds, “I’m sorry, that was misworded. With any of these chains, prices can differ by store — especially when you are in different regions. The Schnucks deals I get from NIC are from up in the Rockford area so may differ down by you; always check against your local ad.”

Where to Buy Milk and Eggs

  • On where to buy milk and eggs, Maureen says, “The Post coupon and Catalina also works wyb one Oberweis half gallon at Jewel (although you won’t be able to use the Ibotta). If you don’t need the cereal, consider donating it to your local food pantry.”

meijersmall

Here are the best Chicago Meijer deals and coupon matchups (for Meijer Thursday market ads) I see for the week of 1/22/15 – 1/28/15.

(Note: Smaller neighborhood grocery Chicago Meijers such as Niles, Melrose Park, Berwyn, and Orland Park, go off different and more localized ads, so some of your deals may differ from those shown here. Please verify against your own ad. Other states, Northwest Indiana, and downstate IL are on the Sunday-Thursday ad schedule, so sales there start the Sunday before the Thursday they start in Chicagoland in IL. I use the Bolingbrook IL (Boughton) ad for these matchups.)
