Amazon

CVS

  • If you also get this from the magic coupon machine, Kelly comments: “My CVS had Finish gelpacs and power balls 25 ct boxes on sale for $4. Today the magic machine gave me a $1.50 off one Finish or Cascade dish detergent. Combined that with the 50 cent coupon off Finish Gelpac/Powerball from recent Sunday paper and paid $2.00 for the box. Almost as good as the $2.15 coupon!”

Home Depot

  • If you’re going today and want to match the Menard’s 11% rebate through 4/18, feelgood notes: “For the 11% match, Home Depot does it by mail. You get a Home Depot Gift card after you submit a rebate form and copy of your Home Depot receipt. Here’s the rebate form.”

Jewel

  • Something to look for from Kelly: “So, Jewel has this weird deal going on this week where you buy 2 Twizzlers ($1.77 each) and get $1 off Jewel 24pk water bottles ($2.49- $1=$1.49). Well, at the display by the entrance at the North Wheaton Jewel, they had buy 1 get 1 free tear pads on the Twizzlers. So paid $3.26 for all 3.”

Meijer

  • From joan: “If you still have McCormick 75 cents off coupons use at Meijers ,I used mine for salt grinder ,had only 6 so took a pass on one free when you buy 10 , so 25 cents each ,very happy(:”
  • Valentina S. comments: “I stopped by CS and got approved stack of printable Target and MQs $1.00/2 Red Baron pizza which is on sale now at Meijer, 2/$6.00.”
  • More problems with coupons + mPerks $/$$ off, from feelgood: “Went to the Homer Glen Meijer tonight, what a disaster! Wanted to use the $10/$75 mPerks. Rang up over $75 in groceries at the full-serve, the $10 came off. Had a manufacturer coupon for a free Smart Ones smoothie, it rang up $2.19, only $1.17 came off from that coupon. Had a $1.00/2 and a $2.00/3 Stouffers manufacturer coupon, neither one came off, although the cashier was quick to throw them in her drawer. And those were only 3 coupons, I had about 12-15 more to go. Supervisor was called over, she’s telling me since I already got $10 off, any coupons I use are prorated. I told her what’s the point of giving me $10 off, then taking it back by shortchanging my coupons. Left everything behind and walked away.”

Menards

  • Be forewarned if you are looking at the free-after-rebate Green Envy house wash in tomorrow’s ad. Charlotte found: “Just on a note on the Green Envy Housewash (I know it’s free, but still) 1 star across the board.”

Reader requests

  • nilo asks: “I need help trying to find a stay at home job, any suggestions?”

Walmart

  • Looking at the Persil detergent sale + coupon? From Charlotte: “We used Persil at times when we lived in the Netherlands (20 years ago… I feel so old now). It’s laundry detergent. Then again, I’m not picky about my detergents :P… Aha! Also, it used to be Dixan, which is a brand I’m VERY familiar with, they must have re-branded during the time we lived in the Netherlands. Anyway, I was highly allergic to Dixan, so I won’t be getting Persil. :P

Apps

  • More on the Shock Top rebates — nilo comments: “bought mine at meijer and had a rebate on it. buy a 6pk or larger and $6 of fruit and produce, get $6 back. $6 worth of free produce and fruit!”
  • And from cindy: “Shopmium says the limit is 5. I have also done the Shocktop on Ibotta 3 times for both the 6 pack and the 12 pack. It keeps reappearing for me about 2 days after I redeem it. It has also earned me an extra $10 since I reached 2 of my teamwork goals. All 3 have gone through with no problem. I am still waiting on my 2 Shopmium rebates to credit. Guess what we are bringing to every barbeque this summer!”

Coupons

  • If you’re looking for the Altoids Arctic to use the new $.75/1 coupon, KeeKee says: “Yes, i bought some recently from FairPlay foods in Chicago priced around $1.99-$2.19, they taste much better than the original Altoids and the taste is not so overpowering. Walgreens has them also and sometimes on sale for $1.50″
  • And SoapboxTray comments: “My husband quit smoking several years ago and had been on the nicotine mints since, but February quit those (yippee) and had gotten these at Walgreens when they had a store coupon for $1. each. They sell them there regular price 1.99 around that but when I stopped in Jewel last week they were on sale (at the checkout) for $1. each (which is very good). Agree they are better than the other Altoids and they have a dual side texture :-)

CVS

  • Pam shares: “if anyone is wondering, the Shea Moisture that was NOT ringing up BOGO earlier in the week has now been corrected, and is ringing up.”

Home Depot

  • If you are shopping the spring Black Friday sale at Home Depot, letsshop says: “And don’t forget they match Menards 11% off rebate sale (:”

Meijer

  • Read more concerns about Meijer, returns, and mPerks in comments here.
  • And Kitty shares: “Got this at Meijer: Buy any Tombstone Pizza (11.25 oz-29.5 oz) between 4-20-15 and 5-17-15 and save up to $3 OYNO. Buy 3 get $1; Buy 4 get $2; Buy 5 or more get $3. Limit 1 offer per transaction.”
  • From llz A: “At niles Meijer they have kcups green mountain and donut(brand) 12ct on sale for 4.99 use the 1.00 off from coupon.com for 3.99. Also on my mperks there is a 1.00 off colgate mouthwash no size restriction so I got the 1.00 trial size for 1.00 it did not come off but customer service refunded me.”

Reader requests

  • Vivian asks: “I am going to Crystal Lake, IL tomorrow. Is there any cool stores or anyplace I need to visit to take pics or have a great day?”

Target

  • On the Applebee’s gift card deal, pam points out: “you can do this in store as well this week.”
  • And Julie found: “There are also some that when you buy $50, you get 10% off. I bought 2 Applebee’s $25 gc, and 2 Starbucks $25 cards – all email delivery. I paid $90.75, saving 10% on Starbucks, and 5% with my Redcard, and then will get $10 Target gc back for net $80.75 for $100 worth of gift cards. :-). Thank you for sharing!!”
  • Cindy asks: “Have you heard where the Dreft Spray is? I checked the laundry aisle near the Shout and other stain lifters as well as the Baby section but couldn’t find them.”

Amazon

  • A note from Artie on the cheap spice gripper strips: “I’m in for one too. I also have a lot of glass bottles. If you look closely at the pictures you can see that some of the bottles pictured are McCormick glass bottles which are much larger than the plastic ones so it should work with my larger ones.”

Apps

  • On the overlapping Shock Top rebates, SmartShopper found the 6 packs for $6.99 at Meijer, so a money maker there.
  • SmartShopper also has a higher value offer on her Ibotta, so it varies by user — check yours! “My Ibotta shows rebates on Shock Top: $5.00 for the 6-pack and $7.00 for the 12-pack.”
  • Brandy had the higher value too, and got hers at Target: “Yep, also had $5 in my Ibotta and the Shopmium $5, plus if you redeem today on Ibotta, extra $.50 for some random Tax Day bonus 4/15-4/16 over $2 in redemptions. I paid $7.49 at Target and got $10.50 back, so $3 moneymaker! I don’t even think I’ll like this stuff, but I was all about getting paid to buy it!”
  • Also on Shock Top, something to look for from liz: “There is also coupons attached to the six packs for buy shocktop get 2.00 in produce free”
  • From SmartShopper on the overlapping Nature Valley granola offers: “Nature Valley Protein Granola is on sale at Target for $2.69. Use .75/1 mfg and submit $1.00 to Snap by Groupon and $1.00 back on Checkout 51 = .6 cent money maker after coupon, and apps.”

CVS

  • SoapboxTray clarifies on the Cheerios deal: “CVS Cheerios deal is 3 of each of the 2 varieties: 3 of Honey Nut and 3 of regular yellow box.”

Mariano’s

  • Shandelle asks: “Has anyone been able to redeem that ecoupon for a free Yoplait Greek 100 Whips cup at Mariano’s from the Pillsbury email list last month?? Went to Mariano’s with a friend last weekend and no flavors came off free from either card despite loading it and pillsbury stating it was loaded. The manager was very nice and just comped them anyway but I hope I didn’t get the wrong kind or something! And that Mariano’s will be reimbursed for that (probably not :-/ ).I was really wary about this freebie actually working since it’s through a 3rd party site and not Mariano’s store ecoupons.”

Meijer

  • On the idea of stacking the ten for $10 get the 11th item free deals, feelgood suggests: “Beth, I would do one transaction of 11, pay, then do another one. If you stack two deals, I’ve had it where the register sometimes randomly decides which ones becomes the 11th items, and lose out on the coupon value.”
  • And a reminder from Julie: “Also keep in mind, you cannot use a coupon on the 11th/free item, so make sure you plan for that and place whatever item you are not using a coupon onto the belt or scan it yourself as the 11th item for the deal.”
  • Sue B replies to yesterday’s question about returns: “Joanne – in regards to the Orland Park Meijer – it is an independently run meijer in that it is separate from other meijers in that it runs its own adds – and doesnt always have the same sale items as all the other meijers. At least that is what I was told not to mention its just a crappy store in general. I shop at the new Wolfe road store it big and has everything.”
  • Veronica asks: “On Meijer~ isn’t that illegal? The are still going to get paid from the manufacturer for that coupon so they got the item back but are still chasing in? That doesn’t seem right….”
  • Kitty comments: “Joanne re Meijer returns….same thing in Niles. I do have a problem not getting my coupon money back. After all, they get the money plus the handling fee. I always complain and can usually manage to get a store credit. That’s one of the few things I don’t like about Meijer PLUS they raised the price of their Friskies cat food from 46c to 55c So I will have to start going back to Pet Supplies Plus again.”

99 Cent Stores

  • Suzann comments: “We have 99 cent stores in Houston– they are a treasure hunt. They put
    the latest non perishables up front and some of the warehouse club sizes. They moved in when Albertson’s pulled out of this market around 2004 and sold them that fairly new distribution facility. They also get products the majors did let get established.”

Oregon Trail

  • Admiring the new tee? Becky shares that: “…you can now play it online at archive.org I’m talking about the old school one from the 80’s and 90’s. I’ve now hooked my DD on this game! :)

Target

  • On the Pantene deal, Melissa asks: “Patty – on the pantene did you price check because I have seen pictures that the price on the shelf was changed but that the gel stills rings up 2.48. I haven’t been out to try it yet.”
  • And another hair deal from seachicago: “Target has Clairol Natural Instincts haircolor 2 for $12. Pair this with the $5/2 q in the 3/29 PG for a good deal at $3.50/box!”

TurboTax

  • A reminder from Judy: “Don’t forget to apply for the $25 Turbotax rebate if you bought the Premier version this year after using the Deluxe version last year. Must file by 4/20. I almost forgot to apply.”

*** 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.

American Express

  • A great find from feelgood: “For those with American Express credit cards, go to your account online and check your offers at the bottom of the page. On 4 of my 5 AMEX cards, there was an offer for $20 off an Amazon purchase of $20 or more!”

Contacts

  • If you’re looking at getting contacts from Canada as per the suggestion in yesterday’s Reader Deals, Heather is curious: “Meg, did you submit it to your insurance? Just curious if insurance would cover contacts from Canada”
  • Meg replies: “No, I don’t have vision insurance. But if you have a medical FSA, I bet they would reimburse it. I’m pretty sure contacts are a covered expense; I doubt it matters where you get them from.”

CVS

  • Doing the Honey Nut Cheerios deal? Maggie shares: “I was able to get a great deal today, since I still had the BOGO coupon from a box of Cheerios a while back. It took off $4 but combined with another 50 cents off coupon, I paid almost $4 but got $6 back in ECB. That doesn’t happen too often these days, so a good day for me. :) Just a reminder for those of you who still have one of those “box coupons” in your wallet! By the way, after getting 2 boxes my receipt does NOT say that I met the limit… Anyone know what the limit is for this deal?”
  • Liz replies: “I saw somewhere it was 3″ I think so — my receipt is showing one to go.

Food 4 Less

  • Sandra warns: “Heads up, check your receipt if you do the buy 4 save $4 instant. I was at F4L this morning and 6 of my 36 items did not receive the $1 discount. CS gave me a $6 store credit and said that earlier none of the discounts had been working. Most had been fixed, but they figured some had still been missed which is why 6 of my items didn’t come off. It was a mixture of some of the Kraft cheeses and some of the Snak Saks that caused the issue with me. Oh, and check the shreds for $1/2 peelies. :)

Jewel

  • Check your local Jewel ad for a separate flyer for select stores, per letsshop: “Some Jewel’s have banana’s 29 cents pound ,a separate flyer came in my paper .”

Mariano’s

  • If you’re still heading over today for double coupon Weds., Linda found: “Ken salad dressing is on sale for $2, doubling the $0.75 coupon a while back, and get it for $0.50 a bottle, not bad!”
  • And one from Silvia: “Mt olive has .75 off any item coupons on the jars, get mild banana pepper rings 12oz jars for .49 cents!”

Meijer

  • From Joanne: “I don’t know if all Meijers suck – or if it’s just the Orland Park location. Here is one example of what has happened to me. 1) If I buy something and use a coupon – and then for whatever reason have to return it – they do not refund the coupon money – which I don’t have a problem with – what I do have a problem with is that the receipt I get shows that they gave me the entire amount – but they do not. Example: If I bought coffee for $8 and I had a $2 coupon – I’m paying $6 (plus tax). If I return it – my receipt shows that I received an $8 refund – when in reality they only give me the $6. I don’t like that the receipt doesn’t reflect the truth – it should show a $6 refund – since that’s all they are giving me. Has anyone else experienced this?”

99 Cents Only stores

  • From seachicago: “In case anyone has plans to take a “self-catered holiday” (aka rent a condo and cook) out west, I want to recommend the 99cents Only stores. They’re in some of the western states, and while they don’t take manufacturer coupons, I was really impressed with their prices. The stores are huge (2x Dollar Tree size), and filled with a lot of name brands. At least half the store is food, including produce and dairy, and name-brand bread. Some of the food sizes are smaller than at the grocery (but that’s often okay, since you usually only need a weeks-worth of condiments, etc. on vacation!), but a lot are full size. For instance, I bought 16 oz. strawberries, 14 oz. box of Kellogg’s cereal, 8 ct. name-brand thin bagels, 15 oz. Hellman’s light mayo, etc. BTW, everything is actually $1—as in 99.999 cents!”

Rebates

  • If you’re still waiting for your Smirnoff rebate, David comments: “Diageo rebate – been 10 weeks but I did get an email saying approved $60 on 4/3/15. Just called, said $40 has mailed. Yep so they will send an additional $20…
    in another month to process. Nice!!” See yesterday’s Reader Deals for other comments on this rebate.

Target

  • On the issues with Kleenex and the $10/$50 code with the Kimberly-Clark deal, Kelley comments: “I had the same problem as Kerri with the 10 off 50 at target. I just did a live chat and they took off the $10 since it shows on the ad as participating.”
  • Patty comments: “Update on Pantene deal- it’s still running; however, the hair gel tubes are now $4.59-$4.99, so not such a great deal.”

*** 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.

ALDI

  • Caroline on Facebook found: “YMMV Aldi has Starburst jellybeans for .25 a bag.”

Contacts

  • Meg shares: “I wanted to share something I just learned. I’ve been looking for a contact lens exam so that I can buy another year’s worth of my contact lenses. Most of those cheap exams at LensCrafters and the like do not cover contact lenses. And I stumbled across this little known (to me, anyway) fact: you do not need a valid prescription to purchase contact lenses in British Columbia. And online retailers located in BC will ship to the US. I was skeptical, but my years’ supply of Accuvue arrived today and they are exactly the same ones I’ve been wearing. The site I used was http://www.visionpros.ca and I just entered the prescription info off one of my current boxes of lenses. Of course, it’s recommended to get an eye exam every year. So I will probably still go get a $19 one just to ensure good eye health. But I won’t need the pricier contact lens exam, at least not every year.”

Dollar Tree

  • Print the new $1.00/2 Thomas’ coupon, because focadima comments: “My dollar tree also carries these by the brownberry bread”

Jewel

  • A find from Dee Clawed on Facebook: “Jewel is clearancing Mt. Olive Super Stacker dill pickles. They were marked $1.34 for large jars but rang up at .74 cents! There were also .55 cent coupons elastic-banded to the lids making for .19 cent big jars of pickles! Be careful as these are the long flat slice…not the quartered spears.”

Mariano’s

  • A confirmation of the $1.00 Crest toothpaste (use $3.00/3 in the 3/29 PG!) from Linda: “Saw the toothpaste at Mariano’s today. Still a dollar a tube. In a bin near the checkouts”
  • Print the reset So Delicious coupon, because SoapboxTray found: “So Delicious: These double perfectly at Mariano’s and yogurt are regular price 1.99 so free on Wednesdays. Yum!”

Meijer

  • On the cheap Lactaid milk at Target, feelgood points out: “Just an FYI, the free Fairlife 2% white and chocolate milk at Meijer this week are also lactose free.”

Reader requests

  • One from Coreena: “Hi! Need some help finding protective covers for an IPhone 6. Thoughts?? TIA!”
  • Laura asks: “Has anyone else noticed that all of the flavors of Dole Squish ‘ems have hard little pieces of rind or something in them. I’ve bought different packs thinking it was just that particular pack but the hard pieces are always in there. I’ve contacted the company and even sent in one of the hard pieces and all they do is send coupons for more of the product. They are on clearance at my local jewel and I think that is maybe why. None of the other brands of these applesauce pouches have this problem.”

Rebates

  • Jadeyzma replies to the Smirnoff rebate question from yesterday: “Feel good, I’m still waiting on my rebate for Smirnoff too…they are definitely behind this time. I did get an email saying that it has been received and being processed. Go online to check your status…it hasn’t taken this long in the past.”
  • But a heads up from Anne: “Just a heads up on the Smirnoff Rebate – make sure they send you the correct amount. I looked up to make sure I’d received my rebate (I had, about a month ago), BUT it was only for $40, not the $60 I was supposed to receive.”
  • Alicia says: “I got my Smirnoff a week or two ago. Yours should be on its way!”
  • And if you’ve been waiting for Kohl’s appliance rebates, good news from letsshop: “Wanted to mentioned received rebates from Kohls slow cookers deal ! Put all 4 rebates in one envelope because I was able to buy them at the store ,since they ran out of stock ! was sent in 2 CG in the amount of $40 ,took a extra 3 weeks because of stores type of receipts ): but all is well .”

Target

  • Another Easter clearance candy idea from Diane: “On the Target M & M’s, suprise I was at Target today too, LOL. Anyway, we had a buy a 9 oz or larger bag of M&M’s & get the crispy M&M’s free. I only had the Target $1/2 M&M coupon left, so got 4 bags of M&M’s ( 2 Easter & 2 Crispy) for .90 cents! No sure which insert, I think weekend of 4/12.” 4/12/15 RP.
  • And a clearance candy find from Caroline on Facebook: “And if you still have the Hersey $2/3 Easter candy coupon you can pick up bags of Cadbury mini-eggs at Target for .33 cents a bag for the 10 oz bags.”
  • If you’re having trouble with the codes for the Kimberly-Clark deal, a reminder from shirley: “The old code is missing a letter so try TGTE59AF. Make sure you enter this one first if your subtotal is like mine $55.xx. Hope this helps.”
  • If you’re still having trouble, vicki suggests: “Try TGTCDQH5″
  • A heads up from Kerri: “The Kleenex is still on the page but when you add to the cart and try to put the 10 off 50 coupon in it says you don’t have enough in your cart for that offer.”
  • And Chris shares on Facebook that: “A heads up for Super Target on Diehl in Warrenville: they are resetting dairy and frozen. Lots of frozen fish and desserts plus MP and Kraft cheeses today. Cashier told me to keep checking back all week, a lot more will go on clearance instead of moving it . Works for me!”

Walmart

  • A find from Nancy M.: “Colgate spinbrush in box with toothpaste at Walmart are ringing up $0.59.
    They had SpongeBob and Hello Kitty.”

Whole Foods

  • From Judy: “Mambo Sprouts has a DeBoles $1/1 coupon. Checkout 51 has $2/2, must be purchased in 1 transaction. Whole Foods has some DeBoles pasta on sale for $2.19 throught [today], 4/14. $.19 pasta. The boxes are only 8 oz.” I don’t have the DeBoles offer; check your Checkout 51 to see if you do.

Meijer

  • A find from feelgood: “Check your Meijer mPerks. The two free Fairlife milk coupons have reset! And the Ibotta offer for $0.75 on Fairlife has reset, too. Meijer is included :-)

Rebates

  • A question from feelgood on the long-ago Smirnoff rebate: “Did anyone get their Smirnoff $60 rebate yet? I submitted my rebate form and receipt the beginning of January. Already called the rebate company three times, they confirmed receiving my submission but said they are behind sending out rebates. 15 weeks and counting, still no rebate!”
  • And if you’re concerned about the Hamburger Helper rebate, Valentina S. confirms: “I did it last year and got my rebate check.”

Target

  • If you’re doing the Target Kimberly-Clark deal, Deb comments: “I agree about the Target gift cards that are snail mailed. For the last Kimberley-Clark deal, I kept getting e-mails that the gift cards were delayed, and then they finally cancelled them! I called Target and they immediately replaced them with e-cards.”

Walgreens

  • Jenny shares an alternative to the Target paper deals in the Hot Deals FB group: “If you don’t want to have to deal with the hassle of online ordering, standing in a long customer service line picking up your items, and waiting for your money back…. Walgreens has 6 packs of Scott paper towels for $4 after in store coupon. The rolls have slightly less square feet (Scott is 37.9 sq feet per roll and viva is 47.3 sq feet per roll). But after doing the deal with just paper towels for target, it came out 1.5 cents per square foot for viva and 1.7 cents per square foot for Scott. I have 3 kids under 5, going to target is like the inner ring of hell. I will pay extra to not have 2 carts of paper towels and 1 cart of screaming kids. Lol!

Blue Bunny

  • Looking for Blue Bunny? Mandy says: “The Ultra in Lombard used to carry some Blue Bunny ice cream and the Walmart in Bloomingdale. I haven’t checked recently though.”
  • And jessica adds: “I know Tony’s sells the blue bunny. Shop and Save might sell it too, I haven’t shopped there for a while but they used to.”
  • And from Matt: “Walmart sells Blue Bunny and Ultra does too.”
  • Laura asks: “Has anyone seen the NEW Blue Bunny Dairy Free w/Almond Milk frozen pints? I read they come in about 4 flavors, would love to try them.”

Empire

  • On the Empire 50% off sale, Jovandi comments: “Empire was way overpriced for me 2bedrooms and a hallway $1000″

Jewel

  • Theresa found yet another ice cream changing over to frozen dairy dessert: “on the Friendly Ice Cream at Jewel picked up 2 on the weekend sale, but the ones I got say dairy dessert since no longer ice cream going to have to read the label better. I want ice cream and what is happening to the size 1.5 short fat containers.”

Rebates

Storage totes

  • Matt chimes in on the question of where to find cheap storage totes: “I’m a regular Good Will shopper and I usually find their totes are cracked, missing a top or incredibly overpriced (e.g. more than a new item would be). It never hurts to look at thrift stores. Menards will run promo deals on totes a couple times a year. I think they often have the 10 gallon ones for $2 or $3 when they are on sale. Or look for a store that has clearance on totes. I bought 5 fairly big totes from Staples just because they were $2 a piece on clearance and I happened to be in the store.”

Target

  • If you’re doing the crazy Kimberly-Clark paper products deal, Kari O. points out that: “The ship to home gift cards take FOREVER. I did it once and I had to call and complain because my gift card took over a month to come after the initial item purchased arrived. The electronic ones are a pain, but at least you get your $ faster. lol”

Warby Parker

  • TracyS:  “…bought from warby Parker last month. Picked out 5 pairs and decided I wanted to try one frame in a different color. So, headed to the store in Lincoln park, which is really cute. Lollipops in a big bucket, TV with vhs movies, recommended reading set below the shelves of glasses, and a free photo studio. Got great pics of my kids and they shipped the glasses to my house. $95 included anti scratch and anti glare.”

Build-A-Bear

ALDI

  • Angela recommends the outdoor chair cushions on sale this week: “I purchased 6 chair cushions for my patio set today!!! I love them! SO reasonable, durable, and quality like most things from Aldi. Usually I am seeing cushions more around $25 or more for the quality of the ones I got. I LOVE THEM!! :)

CVS

Empire

  • On the current 50% off sale at Empire, boce says: “We just used empire. Way cheaper than Lowes and they removed and hauled away the old carpet. Lowes does not. We are seeking out house and got a great deal. They give you an extra discount for economy installation—installing on Tues, Wed, or Thurs. Our salesman was fabulous—not pushy and negotiated price. If you’d like his name, let me know. You can request him. I was pleasantly surprised by the whole process.”

Jewel

  • Susie shares: “The jewel near 103rd & Cicero in Oak Lawn, has the essential everyday cheese for $.99 each limit 2. It is a separate flyer for that location only and its on sale through Tuesday. Also the yoplait yogurt is $.39 each limit 10.”
  • And finds from peaches: “I was at the Kosher Jewel on Howard yesterday, and they had a ton of Passover stuff 75% off, including coconut flour and tapioca flour, as well as ground walnuts and ground and whole filberts. I ended up getting some wild harvest canned beans, which they had on clearance for $.74, and some jars of Polaner strawberry fruit spread, which they had marked down to $1.99. I also got ten of the Banquet ziti parmesan. The meals were marked down to $.80 a piece when you purchase 10, and they actually aren’t that bad, and you get double monopoly tickets on them. It is a new item. I also got 4 packages of Tabatchnick frozen soup for $1.50 a box. Today is the last day they are on sale, and I love their soup. It is usually in the frozen kosher section of the store.”
  • Laura asks: “I has a $1 off Method cleaner product Mymixx coupon that I clipped and at the register after I entered my Mymixx number I asked why it didn’t come off and they said you had to buy more than 1. It specifically stated “on the purchase of 1″. Did anyone else have this happen?”

Reader requests

  • Marion asks: “Sorry for ot but does anyone know if the cat chow deal is still working at Chicagoland Meijers?”
  • feelgood is wondering who still sells Blue Bunny ice cream: “Just me, does your Jewel still sell Blue Bunny ice cream? The Jewels near me clearanced all their Blue Bunny ice cream a while back, and now have Friendly’s brand ice cream in the same spot where Blue Bunny used to be. Unfortunately, Meijer doesn’t carry Blue Bunny, and I don’t remember seeing it at Target, either. Did see it at Walmart a while back.”

Storage totes

  • And on yesterday’s question about cheap storage totes, Jen suggests: “@Allison, if you have a thrift store near you, check there for storage totes. Mine gets them every week and sells them for like a dollar. They need a wash but that’s a simple matter. An employee there told me how they often get donations dropped off in them and then they sell the box, too. My local store has one day of the week where they do their big sale day, and that’s the best day to find the most selection of anything, including boxes.”
  • Another idea from Maureen: “Allison, try Ikea, I have a bunch from there.”

  • If you’re looking for additional places to help out after the Illinois tornados, Chris comments: “Jewel on Ogden/Washington in Naperville set out canisters for monetary donations today-will be up at least a week.”

ALDI

  • Heather comments: “The Aldi in Plainfield had a huge cart of their protein bars marked down to .99 a box. Heat and serve rolls were marked down to .25. They had several other bags of chips and Easter items reduced, too.”

Best Buy

  • From VB: “In case anyone is in the market for a TV. We picked one up at Best Buy it was one sale $700 off the retail price for $999.99 and it had almost everything that we wanted for the price ( I would have like the 4K ultra but we’d have to go up in price and we had set a limit)so we were pretty happy to get a good deal on the TV and then It turns out that the store employee incorrectly told us the free financing would be 18 months (it was actually only 12 months) so he called the finance dept and had them extend the 0% financing period to 18 months. When we got home my husband looked up the TV on the Best buy website to see the features and he noticed that online they were giving a free Smart 3D bluray/dvd player that retailed at $139.99 with the purchase of that same TV. He went back to the store and they honored the online deal (we were prepared to return it and order it online to do store pick up but glad we avoided that hassle)! It worked out great since we were already saying we would need to buy a bluray player since we were moving the old tv to my daughters room that has no cable to watch movies but since it’s a Smart Player she has access to apps to watch TV in her room (I did not even realize the made smart bluray players). With the $700 sale and the free Smart Bluray player and 18 month 0% financing it turned into a great deal for us. They did mention if we pay it off in 30 days we would also get 10% off ( I am going to have to look into that!)”

Carson’s

  • Caroline shares: “Carson’s Black Friday $10/$10 off coupon is back. Check your email I got one emailed to my email address and I also have one from the sales ad in Thursday’s paper”

Caputo’s

  • If you have the Driscoll’s survey coupons, check out Caputo’s. Kristina comments: “I was just at the Naperville store. Driscoll’s strawberries are 99 cents!”

Coupons

  • Here’s a nice high value $3.00/1 Oxiclean detergent coupon, spotted by feelgood.
  • If you’re printing the Brach’s candy coupon, Mary Beth points out: “Menard’s also sells Brach’s. Might be worth a look.” And Joy says that “Easter candy was 50% off at Walmat yesterday” and Wendy found “70% off all Easter at Walgreens today”
  • And while you’re taking a look for that, Julie comments on the Clorox 2 coupon: “Menards puts these on sale for $1.50 every so often too.”

Jewel

  • A heads up from Jodi on the sale tamales: “Went to Jewel today and wanted the 10 for $10 tamales advertised. You have to ask the butcher and then he brings them from the back at the store in Kankakee. Anyway, he told the pork ones were recalled so they only had the chicken. I got those but not I wonder why the pork was recalled and if the chicken is ok. My frustration level with the Kankakee and Bourbonnais Jewels is getting to the point of not shopping there anymore! Trying to use a good coupon is like pulling teeth!”

LivingSocial

  • Jessica doesn’t recommend the Dells deal: “I do not recommend this resort at all. It was dirty, overcrowded and outdated. The food was mediocre at best and the grocery store a rip off. I paid $7.50 for 10 tampons. I understand a convenience mark up, but come on!! In talking to other guests, I found out that they give waterpark passes to guests of about 5 other hotels in town. No wonder it was so crowded. The lifeguard staff was severely lacking. I even saw one at the top of the slide lean in and kiss a girl while he was on duty. Extremely unprofessional and unsafe. They don’t have adequate tubes for the rides and their line procedures are ridiculous. I’ll never go back. Stick with a nicer resort such as Wilderness Territory or Kalahari, they’re more expensive but now I see why.”

Meijer

  • A heads up on the free Fairlife milk from Kristina: “Beware – the chocolate has Splenda (sucralose) in it. Splenda gives me terrible headaches… so glad I read the ingredients list!”
  • From feelgood: “Besides the Hamburger Helper and Chi-Chi’s salsa listed above, there is also a 50% savings on the following products with mPerks digital coupons (prices listed after 50% off coupon):22 oz Kraft Miracle Whip or Mayo $1.49
    4-pk Jello Refrigerated Pudding $0.99
    14.5 oz Del Monte Tomatoes $0.45
    Del Monte Specialty vegetables $0.69
    4-pk Del Monte Fruit Cups $1.09
    7 oz Del Monte Refrigerated Fruit Cup $0.49
    Entenmann’s Donuts or Little Bites $1.99
    16.3 oz Peter Pan Peanut Butter $1.25
    Orville Redenbacher’s Microwave Popcorn $1.75
    Chi-Chi’s Tortillas $0.94Easiest way to find the 50% off coupons is to search “newest” in the mPerks coupon section. Also, they’re manufacturer coupons.”
  • And another Purina find from feelgood to add on to the cheap Purina Natural Cat Chow deal here: “For those with dogs, 24 oz. Purina Alpo Wholesome Dog Biscuits are $2.50 each at Meijer. Redplum (zip 60154) has a Buy One Get One Free coupon, and a $1.00/1 coupon. This would also work well with the Catalina offer, and both mPerks pet offers.”

Target

  • Sue is wondering: “Since Target went to 70% off Easter on Thursday, anyone know if it’ll be Saturday or Sunday for the 90% off?  Need to get the basics for 150 baskets for next year, and don’t want to miss the day!  Thanks.”
  • Jesse found Lime-A-Way trigger cleaner at the City Target in Chicago on State Street with a try me free rebate on it.
  • A great Easter clearance candy find from Pam: “Just left Target in Villa Park. I used the Brach’s coupon on Chocolate marshmallow rabbits to get them for $.60. Better yet, M&Ms bags are 50% off @ $1.59. Used four $1/1 coupons from 3-15 RP I believe & two target coupons from their website of $1/2 to get four bags for $.09 a piece!! Yay! Plenty left!”
