- A response to yesterday’s question about checking accounts, from Artie: “Fran,Open an eligible BMO Harris checking account with qualifying direct deposits and get a $200 cash bonus. https://www.bmoharris.com/main/personal/always-on/2015/checking“
- Another thumbs up from Artie: “Second the Wisconsin Cheese Corp that Caroline recommended”
- If you are considering the CityPASS deal, Angie recommends it: “We did this one spring break and it w a s very cool. We also introduced the kids to all the city modes of transportation at the same time!”
- The Tums deal may be over — Marah comments: “Did the peppermint chewable and got nothing. Boooooo.”
- Andi comments on the Six Flags Great America deal: “Great deal if you want in for the rest of the season this year. If you’re really not interested until next year, know that Gold passes may be purchased for this amount or less next year (better if you have a Discover card, as I earn 5% each time I purchase). Just be sure to sign up for email notifications to receive. Assuming what has happened the past few years occurs once again, I got these down to a net $58 and change all in, for gold this year. Email arrived the first week of June (emails I received in May would have resulted in passes in the $65 or so range). Typically, I buy only one for me, and one for my eldest child – the younger attends once with the reading certificate he earns at school, and other times w/gold “bring a friend free” days. This year, the lowest offer was sent via email to me during the first week of June. Lastly, if your child’s school issues one-day tickets for reading a certain # of minutes during the school year, watch for a note on yours next spring – either I’ve completely missed this, or it was new this year – ours offered an option to purchase the season’s pass for $29.99 on the day we redeemed the free ticket. Not sure if this included parking, or an option to upgrade to the gold, but given my specific scenario noted above, I would have likely opted for $29.99 for my youngest…”
- And Lucky Day asks: “Feelgood, are you buying? Do you or anyone else want to collaborate to get to the 4+ threshold?”
- A heads up from Jessica: “One word of caution because I learned the hard way: if you sign up for monthly payments, it is considered a MEMBERSHIP and it WILL auto renew even after you have paid off your passes. You MUST cancel it 45 days prior to when you no longer want the pass active. I only purchased a good pass last June and noticed I was still being billed in August of this year after I had paid my 12 payments. I don’t even have a season pass this year so it would be impossible to get into the park to use the food pass they were billing me for. I had to call them and I had to dispute June, July and August charges this year. They were friendly and helpful BUT if I’d have cancelled it online I would have been committed for payments through October.”
- One from SoapboxTray: “Jewel: Maybe it is posted somewhere but the Wauconda Jewel has Hormel Always Tender B1G1 and I found some today that were $3.something with manager special $1. on each and I used $1. off IP. I didn’t realize that it was B1G1 there wasn’t a sticker on these and she tried to scan the other coupon and it wouldn’t work so I didn’t want to deal with it just thought a good deal anyway and then looked at my receipt and it was 80 something cents for the 2 of them so that is why it didn’t scan Also at Jewel saw Kraft BBQ sauce 99¢ and there is an IP for 55¢ off a bottle. Cheap BBQ sauce.”
- Lori S. shares: “Also in Jewel Big Book of Savings starting Sept. 16h thru the 29th show your jewel receipt at the customer service desk get a promo code for a 50 cent one night DVD rental from Redbox. 1 Code per transaction”
- One from mama: “The eye doctor just gave me a prescription for trifocals The prescription is very different than my previous one so I’d like to try it out with a cheap pair of glasses before I invest. Does anyone have a place they can recommend (either online or B&M)? Thanks so much!”
- A find from SoapboxTray: “The Starbucks Iced Vanilla coffee 16 ct. Kcups are on clearance (endcap at Mundelein Super Target) for $6.98. I bought 4 to see if the b3g1 would work and it didn’t, however the 20% off cartwheel did to make them $5.58 each, I used 2 $3. off 2 Kcups IP and submitted my receipt and UPC for the $5. Starbucks ecard. Net $11.32 for 18¢ a pod.”
- Diane comments: “I was completely out of chicken breasts, so I picked up 4 bags of Tyson trimmed chicken breasts at Target. They were $7.99/ bags ..Much to my suprise & delight there was $3 that came off each bag making them $4.99 for 40 ounces of chicken or 2 1/2lbs. then take off 25% cartwheel + $3.74 per bag! If my math is correct that makes them $1.50/lb.”
- ymmv on this one, but jan comments: “The Prospect Heights Ultra has Kraft cheese shreds 8oz 2.99 bogo plus the save $5 Kraft deal. They all ring up 2.99 then the $5 comes off. You have to tell the cashier that there are signs by the cheese that say they are bogo and they manually take 2.99 for each 2 cheeses that you bought.They said their system has been having trouble with bogo’s of late. That makes them 2 for .99 without coupons!! Some of the dates were short but, some were Dec and Jan.”
