  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • A find from Outlander: “Good deal on hazelnuts on Amazon if you like them for baking or whatever. Only $7.65/lb. with 20% S&S. I checked at Caputo’s 2 days ago and it was $12.99/lb.”

Costco

  • Rebecca comments: “Costco usually has Hansens, Apple & Eve, and their own Kirkland varieties, which are 100% juice or (even better in my opinion) watered-down juice, and nothing more. You can also get Hansens and Apple & Eve at most grocery stores.”

Coupons

  • Jane noticed: “It shows in the preview of the Walgreens ad that there is $1 Wet n Wild coupon in Sundays paper. I’m not sure if this is a new one or not or if it says you must buy more than $1 this time either? We will see….”

Food 4 Less

  • To get digital coupons, Valentina S. says: “Food 4 Less is a Kroger store. I registered here

Meijer

  • Tori shares: “I just came back from the Meijer in Aurora. They have all clearance clothes an extra 25% off what they are marked. I’m not sure if it’s all clearance because I was in a hurry, but got some boys athletic shorts for $3.38, boys jeans for $7.35, girls swimsuit $4.50, and even mens cargo shorts for $9.”
  • Something to look for from Maria: “On my mPerks, I had a coupon for 10 free 4×6 single image prints with the restriction that I had to print from the Meijer mobile app to store. The offer expires 8/23. I think this is a new feature on the Meijer mPerks app.”

Menards

  • Jane says: “I see the Gum 2 packs of toothbrushes are $1.49 BOGO and we have an insert coupon for 55c/1 Gum product. Does Menards allow a coupon on the free item? I’m guessing not but I really have not read their policy. Even if you use just 1 coupon, that makes 24 cent toothbrushes after the deal. Not bad if you need them. (they say super soft, which does sound nice on my gums…no pun intended!)”
  • A question from Sally: “Did anyone get papers at Menard’s Joliet last Saturday? My inserts were very thin, like Suntimes inserts.”

Rebates

  • Shandelle shares: “I can’t remember who it was that asked in the last couple days but regarding the Clearasil free after MIR questions concerning needing the UPC off the package. I just noticed on their facebook page they’ve responded to people saying you can either include a photo of the UPC along with the rebate form -or- more simply you can just write down the UPC on a post-it or something and include it with your submission. I plan to just take a screenshot of this Facebook reply & print it out to send along with the UPC written down, just to cover my bases.”

Target

  • To go with the $2.00/2 Ziploc, Cari points out: “Totally Target posts there is a Target $1/2 as well.” Note that the Target coupon is only for the 20-50 ct.
  • And Krystle noticed: “New Target mobile Q’s, text THANKS. Includes a 75 cents off of 2 Ziploc items (food storage and wrap). So $1.16 each for the 100 count sandwich bags.”
  • Andi has a possible use for the $1.50/1 coupon: “Spotted Infant’s Advil on clearance at Target in the Baby aisle for around $4.”

Ultra Foods

  • From susie: “There is a $1 coupon in the 6-29 RP that expired on July 27 for the Ben & Jerry’s ice cream.”

Walgreens

  • An idea from Kitty: ” Lets All Complain to Walgreens. Here is the Walgreens customer service number……….1-800-925-4733. I called them today, nicely explained how unhappy I was with the new RR wording and rules and how that will affect my not shopping at Walgreens in the future. If each one of us took 5 minutes to do this, maybe it would have some effect.”
  • Shandelle shares: “Last year I went through a self check at Walmart and tried to scan a Walgreens RR just to see what would happen but it was rejected. And I know their system will scan normal manufacturer cents off catalinas, so I don’t think WM takes them. No idea about Kroger, since we don’t have any in the greater Chicago area. I saw a comment on KCL where someone said I think Publix takes them? But we don’t have those here either so not certain.”
  • Jane adds: “Yes, Steve right above my comment said Publix takes RR. I will have to re-read Krogers policy again to check, but several years ago I was talking to the CS girl at Kroger and she said they took them then but I do believe policy has changed. They were denying my Driscolls (printable) coupons if they were worth more then 75% of the price of the product, but since have changed that policy. They now accept printables just like insert coupons. I think they were afraid of fraud because people would make copies and the checkers were not trained to spot them. I will send my RR to my friend in TN to use at Publix if I get stuck with any! She will love that since she sends me any rebates for beer they cannot do there in TN.”

Walmart

  • Mandy reports: “Someone asked about the Rave trial size hair sprays a few days ago. I found them at the Bloomingdale, IL Walmart a few hours ago for .97 each. The bin was about 1/2 full , so I would guess about 20-30 of them. That is after I bought 1!”

Reader requests

  • Martha posts on Facebook: “I just found out that I need new brake pads and rotors (like now) at Midas, to the tune of around $400. Does anyone have any sources for savings from them, or an alternate place I could go for cheaper? (I am in south Naperville/Bolingbrook area if that helps.)”
  • From juli on the deal at Meijer: “So the free split top bread with skippy/welch is also part of the 10/$10…it doesn’t screw up that free 11th item, does it? Would it count as one of the ten (so i’d get 11 items, 2 free) or is it independent, where I’d have to get 10, the free 11th, and then the free bread with the pbj?”

Rebates

Target

  • Eun confirms: “Wet Ones is also a good deal this week. The 40ct is on TPC for $1.99. There’s a $0.50 for 28ct or larger TQ, a $1/2 IP on coupons.com and a $2 ibotta rebate for buying 2. My store lets me use multiple TQs so they were free for me after the rebate.” Yep!

Amazon

  • Outlander shares: “I made my own Almond and Cashew butter the other day with those great Planters nuts we bought recently from Amazon. They are awesome!!!! Last one I made mixed almond and cashew and added a teaspoonful of coconut oil to it. It is just soooooo tasty! I’m gonna buy more, because with 20% S&S it’s still a great deal. Hopefully there will be a Q again soon too.” They are still $37.35 shipped with Subscribe & Save, or $3.11 per BIG can.

Caputo’s

  • Outlander reports: “Raspberries are Driscoll’s!! I have to print a lot more of my Qs and go get them. Only got 3 today, and I had 1 $1 Q and 2 $0.50. I asked if its ok to come back and get more with $1 Qs, and the lady said no problem, but they will adjust them down to 99 cents. I’m hoping to stock up my freezer. I love raspberries!” Yes, I have never had a problem with them adjusting those coupons down and accepting.

Dollar General

  • Jane says: “Well I signed up for the new Digital coupons on Dollar Generals site a few days ago and finally went last night to try it out. BIG MISTAKE! I bought almost $5 worth of stuff and when I tried to punch in my phone number to get my free $2, it locked up the transaction. People started forming a line behind me and 1 lady walked out it was taking too long. (for her) The manager was not there so they had to call her and between 2 employees and the mgr. on phone now…none of them had tried the new system yet. There were signs for this new digital program right on the registers and I even asked about it before I started to check out, in order to prevent what ended up happening. I was in the store for well over AN HOUR and left the store in my prescription sunglasses because it was bright out when I got there and pitch dark when I left! I was the first person to try to use this new system!? I think I signed up Friday night for it because I recall we rode bikes on Sat. and I was dying to test it out then.”
  • And she adds: “*also wanted to share an article I read yesterday about DG.”

Information

  • From mama: “Another ingredient to watch for is triclosan. Colgate Total includes this ingredient. The news report that I saw recommended that pregnant women and children avoid this ingredient.” She also says: “Was bummed to read about triclosan in Colgate Total yesterday. I have 12 tubes in the closet – good thing they were free so I don’t feel guilty not using them! Just not worth it IMO.”

Jewel

  • Valentina S. comments: “Jewel at 4 E Ogden Ave Westmont, IL has avocados tagged $0.59. I checked with a lady at the produce department whether the signage was right. She confirmed that it’s right. She added that this store has some special prices. I got 2 avocados. I found EE Ketchup, 20 oz. squeezable bottles that stand upside down tagged 5/$5. Just $0.25 each after $1.50/2 EE any condiment coupon. I got 2 since the EE coupon is 1 per transaction. I also used $1/2 Fresh Express printable coupon from Salad Swap on two spinach bags to make $0.49/bag. Jewel eggs at this store were $0.99, limit 2. Great shopping trip. Spend $4.76 OOP after coupons with tax for all the items above!”
  • And Kitty found: “Bananas were 19c PER POUND at the Jewel in the Glen in Glenview. There was a RED ALERT sign with the price showing that it is good thru Aug 26.

Online deals

  • From Kari O.: “Oooh, this is dangerous knowledge. I got sucked into the same [Tilly's] sale during the 4th of July and ended up spending $65 using three different orders. lol. They’re stuff is awesome! Although, be aware that the “lightweight hoody” is actually as thin (if not thinner) as a T-shirt. Stretchy and long sleeved, but really really thin! I like mine but was surprised how thin it was when they came. (We got men’s and women’s).”

Reader requests

Kmart

Meijer

Reader requests

  • Amanda asks: “Has anyone seen any discount codes for Morton Arboretum? Thanks so much!”

The grounds are gorgeous, you can do tours of the home, plus there is a war museum on the property. The kid favorites are the real tanks they can climb all over. The whole thing is family friendly, they allow picnics or eat in their cafe. Parking is $5 and entrance is FREE. “
  • Kelly replies: “A second “yay” for Cantigny. Tanks are a highlight, as are the glass floor in the welcome building with a diorama underneath and the walk through war museum. My kids have loved it for years.”

  • Amanda shares: “When we were in Michigan last week my mother picked that exact place mat up for my daughter at Target. It was $1.99 and they had a lot of other characters. I haven’t looked since I’ve been home but if someone is visiting Target it’s worth a look.”

Food information

  • Sarah comments: “I just learned how to do a whole chicken in the crockpot thanks to my America’s Test Kitchen cookbook for slow cookers. The basic idea is to mix your spices and oil in a bowl and nuke them in the microwave until it is fragrant. You stir about every 30 seconds. Rub the mixture under the skin and on top too. Place breast side down and cook on low 4-5 hours. You place it breast side down so the juices from the leg keep it moist, who knew!” I love America’s Test Kitchen!

Jewel

  • A find from peaches: “I was shopping at the Jewel on Chicago Avenue in Evanston last night, and I spotted the Al Fresco chicken grillers, but there was not a shelf tag for them. When I scanned them, they scanned for $2.99! They are normally $10.99. There is a $1 coupon that is in the 6/22 RP, that I am going to post redeem the next time I am in Jewel. I bought the Italian ones, but they also had buffalo and blue cheese, and caramelized onion burgers too. I have not tried these yet, but I love their chicken sausage. The grillers are in a freezer near the deli department.”

Back to school

  • Kari O. responds: “They make safes that attach to your bedpost. Sounds strange but it’s really helpful. Some are even big enough to store a laptop. Here’s one example I found at Target awhile back. They make smaller ones too just for wallets, credit cards, etc. that are cheaper.”

Online deals

  • From Leslie on the Tanga maxi dresses: “I bought a dress last go round. I like it. I am going to order another. The dress runs kind of small. I am glad I the size up.”

It’s seen some rough times, but it was the greatest. Good backpacks are worth it. :) For now, our oldest is starting Kindergarten, and from what I remember from my childhood, the size needed for backpacks dramatically increases over the next few years. So, I’m sitting back to see what the size requirements will be.”
