Coupons

Heads up

I didn’t read this until after I paid. I am keeping the subscription but putting a note in my calendar to cancel after a year.”

Kohl’s

  • Kate had asked could you use gift cards to pay your Kohl’s charge bill. Generally, no, but Pam clarifies: “only the Kohl’s GC that are fundraising ones. For instance, I have a requirement to buy so many GCs for my daughter’s school through shopwithscrip.com. Those ones ARE able to be used on your bill.”

Target

  • Losing Lindy says: “I picked one of these [Advent wreaths] up last year, because instead of presents, I gave my Mr. 7 “experiences” and put the coupons inside this advent calendar. The experiences were a variety of things that cost money and things that didn’t. (i.e. going to the movies, roller skating, trip downtown on the train, snow ball fight, sledding, pizza/pj/movie night, game night, no chore day)”
  • On the Almost Free LED light bulb deal, Eun points out: “The gc is supposed to end the third week of Dec, but the 15% cartwheel ends this Sat.” She also asks, “Does anyone know of a Target in the city that has the gc deal?”
  • Valentina S.adds: “I bought two 40W bulbs today at Willowbrook Target. They were tagged $8.09, but scanned at $6.74. I used the same stack of coupons and cartwheel (took off $1.44) as above. I got a $5.00 GC. Up by $1.96.”
  • Kay adds, “I noticed the bulbs were still on sale as well. There were no 60W but they had 40W. I hope they restock.”
  • Maureen has this comment: “On the Cottonelle gift card Deal (FREE $5 Gift Card wyb 2 select Viva Paper Towels or Scott or Cottonelle Bath Tissue) look for $1 peelies on the 18 ct. double rolls.”

Walmart

  • On the money making deal on Glade wax melts, from Roselle: “I just did this today. I used the $5 off coupon, submitted the $3 ibotta, and emailed the receipt to [email protected] I’ve already received my virtual prepaid card. There’s a limit of 3 entries per person with a max # of 10,440 rewards. The prepaid mastercard comes in the form of a pdf. I’m not sure how many retailers accept these so that may be the challenge.”
  • Mandy reports: “Walmart in Bloomingdale,IL had Ocean Spray cranberries for .98 or .99 this PM. If you have the $1 printable,free is good!”
  • From Ashley: “GE Energy Smart CFL three packs are $1.62 at all IL Walmarts. There are two packages, a blue one and an orange one. Use the $2.50/1 MQ and you have a nice pre-holiday money maker! Also you can check inventory online before you go! Also GE Soft White 4pk are now $1 at all IL Walmarts, use the $1/1 insert coupon and get them for free!”

Heads up

  • A heads up from Vanessa that the Glade Wax Melts Warmer coupon wouldn’t scan: “Tried to do the deal at Forest Park Walmart. Coupon wouldn’t scan so they wouldn’t take it. They said they don’t take “photocopied” coupons. I don’t know why I bother going to Walmart. There is always a problem.”

Dollar Tree

  • Jane says: “I got the 10% coupon today @ DT w/ my paper. I asked the mgr. if we can use coupons with it and he said yes. Then when I checked out the checker warned me I’d have to spend $10 without coupons. I told her the mgr. said I could use them and she was thrown off. She said she’d have to learn how to do that, though instructions are clearly spelled out on procedure on this coupon right on the back. I’m going back tomorrow to try to get the WW desserts, I saw them at my store as well today!!!”
  • Victoria shares: “I was at Villa Park if by any strange chance you are like me have firefly coupons great place to use them. I could 2 -2 packs of toothbrushes no problem ….saw some other coupons to watch out for in the cleaning aisle.

  • One from mama: “I would like to find a deal on How to Train Your Dragon 2 and Frozen, DVD version (we are old school – no Blue Ray player here!) My daughter is having minor surgery on Dec. 23rd so we are having a moviethon on Christmas this year. Thanks!” One option is here for the combo pack. One could also try showing the online in stock Walmart price at Target to price match.
  • Kari O. had luck with that approach: “We price matched at Target fine and got 5% off using RedCard. Just make sure you take the item straight to Customer Service and let them verify the price with their iPad.”

Target

  • A find from jill b: “Target in Evsnston, IL has the 3 packs of [Clorox wipes] 34 count in each pack on clearance for 2.98 (50% off 5.99) With these coupons its an awesome deal since the 104 count bottle right next to it is 5.99″
  • An idea from feelgood: “Went back to the Lemont Target tonight for another round of [GE LED] bulbs. Noticed another area with more bulbs. The 40 W bulbs were tagged $7.49, the 60 W bulbs were tagged $7.99, and both types of bulbs had the tag for the $5 gift card when buying two.” And Rachel was at Hillside this morning — 40w is now also tagged there at $8.99 (!) but both kinds were out.
  • Pam says: “My 40w actually rang up cheaper for me at $7.49. Not sure what the shelf tag read, but that’s what it rang up (I am assuming the $7.49 is a sale price, like the 60w was on sale, right?) So by buying both a 60w (@7.99) and a 40w, mine ended up free.”
  • Valentina S. also confirms: “This deal worked for me at Willowbrook Target.”

Walgreens

  • From kitty: “There’s a BOGO Urgent RX coupon in a recent SS, so 2 free.”
  • Yvette says: “Also, check your balance rewards account before shopping and see if you have a new offer for 25 points on every dollar spent in the store thru the end of the year.”

Activities

Amazon

Apps

  • Shandelle says: “Regarding the Other option in Jingit, I just submitted 2 receipts from Aldi that way last night and was awarded $1.25 in credits for grocery essentials items! :)”
  • She adds: “Click on Grocery Essentials and Reserve your items. Then from the menu go to Shopping List and click the button to submit a receipt. it should pop up a list of stores and now there is one for Other as well as Jewel being added, too.”

Dollar Tree

  • Jane says: “I loaded the PDF [of the 10% off coupon for Sunday] to see and you have to print both sides of coupon. On the ‘back’ it states cannot be used in conjunction with any other voucher or discount. I’d bet they would consider that a coupon when we all know a manuf. coupon is a form of payment. I may pass on the struggle….though if they still have papers on Sunday, you’d get them for 90c each!?”

Gift cards

In-store deals

  • Sarah in Hot Deals says: “Bed Bath and Beyond has [this Atari Flashback Classic Console] for 39.99 with the $5 off coupon on back”
  • Caroline adds: “What’s old is new again. My DH saw it at Sam’s yesterday for the same price.”
  • And tracy saw it as well: “They have the same thing at bed bath and beyond, for the same price, but you can use a 20% off coupon. Sega too.”

Loyalty programs

  • From Jean: “Kellogg’s Rewards just gave me 100 bonus points for every code I entered today. I’m not sure why or how long it will last, but hopefully this will work for everyone.”
  • Pam adds: “Yes, even better for Nutrigrain products— the BONUS points are stacking! Normally you get 80 points for Nutrigrain, but there is a promotion giving you an extra 100 which ends 11/23. Today started an additional promotion, giving you 100 bonus points for ANY product, I think it goes thru 11/30. So for double bonus points on the Nutrigrain, enter them now through 11/23! So, for Nutrigrain products you are getting 280 points for each. For Special K bars, etc you are getting 180.”

Meijer

  • Pam reports: “I bought these [Carnation Breakfast Essentials] with the coupon at Meijer today. These are on sale for $4.99. I bought 2 and got a $1 OYNO Meijer STORE catalina.”

Online deals

  • From savinlikeu) on GearXS: “I entered freeship14 under codes and got free shipping :)”
  • Lisa shares: “Just bought this [Keurig Elite] last week  at Kohls and really like it. I was a hold back as I was not a fan and preferred the pot as well. I bought the K45 Elite and it has the filter and 3 cup sizes. I was actually thinking of picking one up for my mom. Comes with a 12 pack of k cups. It is quick in the am when time is limited for me to get out of the house.”

Tablets

  • Kari O. warns: “I have the Office suite [like what comes with this tablet] on my iPad and the thing I find most unappealing is nothing saves to the tablet. Instead it connects to your SkyDrive account and downloads your file everytime you want to open it. Not a big deal of you have WIFI all the time, I however do not, so it’s a huge inconvenience that nobody warned me about,”

Target

  • A GE LED bulb report from feelgood: “Went the Lemont Target tonight. No signage for the $5 gift card, but one did pop out after the second bulb scanned at the register.”
  • Sara comments: “Looked it up on their store finder, this [Celeste pizza that is free with SavingStar this weekend] is sold at target so could be used on the Buy $50, get $10 food and beverage deal, through Sat.”
  • She also shares: “There’s a bunch of new Glade offers on Ibotta, some will work nicely with the Target gift card deal (Buy 5 Winter items, get a $5 gift card). $1.25 for 2 jar candles $1.25 for 2 Wax melt refills $1 for 1 PlugIns scented oil refill $1 for Premium Room Spray $1.50 for 1 ct PlugIns Warmer $3 for 1 Wax Melt Warmer $1.50 for 1 Automatic Spray Refill Looks like they all expire 11/27″

  • Martha posts on Facebook: “I found this at the Bolingbrook Target. The Caesar variety [of Snapea crisps] are marked down to $.87 each. Paired it with a $.50 off printable coupon and made for some cheap cheap snacks for the kids lunches. Also, if you do shopmium, there is an additional 30% rebate on these. The downside of this was that the expiration date on the Cesar are only on November 27. I guess they had a bunch of them in the warehouse that they needed to unload quickly.”

Television

  • Sara shares: “Channel Master has a couple of offers for their DVR and Antennas for the Holiday weekend: $175 DVR+ 16 GB model, requires external USB hard drive, not included, limit 3 per customer Offer is good on both Black Friday (Nov 28) and Cyber Monday (Dec 1) from 8 AM – 1 PM CT – HDMI output only – No subscription required – 14 day program guide – This works only with a TV antenna, not cable – Has a dual tuner – Streaming services (Vudu and Pandora) – Compatible with Slingbox 500 (If you get the DVR, check Amazon for a cheaper price for the hard drive or any other accessories.)

  • She adds: “Yep, it has a 14 day guide. Also, noticed it streams YouTube. It was released last December and this is the lowest price I’ve seen.”
  • She also clarifies: “[dual tuner] means it can tune into 2 different channels at the same time. This allows you to record a show and watch a different show at the same time.”

Ultra Foods

  • Valentina S. shares: “I spotted 16 ct. Lipton black tea bags $1.69/box regular price at Downers Grove Ultra. Used $3/2 coupon. Those boxes are great items to fill up the basket to $20 and use Ultra Foods store coupons that I received in the mail in October and November. This week’s coupons are $1 off any meat, $1 off any produce, $1 off any bakery, and $1 off any milk purchase. One $20.00 purchase qualifies a customer to use all four coupons for the week. Mrs. Cubbinson’s croutons will be my fillers too this week!”

Walgreens

  • Christina M. comments: “There is a Robitussin Medi Soother coupon in the 11/2RP to make that a money-maker [for the Black Friday ad].”

Walmart

  • A tip from Stephanie: “Check your local Walmart for Skylanders. I went to Palatine & although the shelf had no indication of a sale, it range up $37.”
  • And on the Lego Friends Olivia’s House, Gina says: ‘It was showing as sold out, but when I went to the store, they had over 8 boxes and they automatically rang up as $39. So check your stores.”

Amazon

  • Outlander on silicone baking mats: “I don’t know the brand (I have a bunch different ones). But the one I use the most is from Carsons. I bought it when they had that $10/$10 Q in the paper before. The mat is reg. price $32 (crazy!), but it was on sale 50% off, and then $10 off, so only $6 which is a good price. I don’t know why you wouldn’t be able to cut them though. It’s not like there’s something inside.” Then she found: “Here read this. It says to cut to size.”
  • But mama warns: “The Artisan brand has fiberglass. Some do not. I would check the label very carefully before cutting!”

  • Deanna posts in Hot Deals: “I need men’s size for my son, and is been difficult. Anyone know if heading to Payless is worth the trip?”

Target

  • A report from Eun: “Deal didn’t work for me at the Target in Evanston. 60W LED was $7.99, but did not prompt the $5 gc nor was there signage to back me up. I had the store call the Mid North location (on Addison) and it was the same there.”
  • Jane says: “I just bought the LED bulbs from Target today and am already loving them! They are actually cooler and brighter than the curly CFL’s I replaced. They are also using less electricity and ‘should’ last even longer. Too new to comment on that but I am happy to snag them on this awesome deal!”
  • Melanie sends over: “I made a short trip to Target (Romeoville) today and noticed a coupon booklet next to the register.  I asked the cashier what it was and she had to ask the manager.  Manager told her it was ok to give out.  Anyway, all coupons expire 12/6/14.  I have attached a pic of the booklet (approx. 3″x4″).  Coupons are as follows:

Aldi

  • A find from Jordan: “Can’t speak to quality, but as of yesterday, cranberries were being clearanced at the Oakbrook Terrace Aldi for 49¢.”

Coupons

  • Judy S. advises: “Choose at least 1 other coupon to print or the [Barilla Plus] pasta coupon prints at the bottom of the page with an ink wasting picture above it.”
  • She also offers another tip, if the Covermate coupon is printing too large: “Make sure it’s not set to ‘fit to page.'”

Donations

  • An idea from Kari O.: “For that price I REALLY hope people consider buying a jacket, even if they don’t have kids, because there are LOTS of cold children who would really appreciate a donated winter coat. My family has limited funds, but my daughter fits in her jacket from last year, so I am going to buy one for her classmate. I went on a pumpkin picking field trip with her class and saw one little boy who was still wearing sandals and only a hoody because his parents couldn’t afford warmer clothes. I volunteer at the school, I know I can slip this into his cubby during class, but I know there’s a few organizations collecting jackets too.”
  • Another option, from jess: “Merlins 200,000 Miles stores also participate in a winter clothing drive. Snug Hugs for Kids. I bought ten hats last week at The Childrens Place for $0.80 each and dropped them off along with everything our kids have outgrown. They take all types of winter wearc for ages 0-18, baby blankets, and clothing as well!”
  • And Sara shares that Jewel is doing a Bears coats drive.
  • A suggestion from barb: “Call your kids grade school or school board offices. Many school secretaries know of someone within the school (or district) in need. Sometimes they will give you a size range and gender and if you drop it off at the office, the secretary will quietly put the kids name and phone number in it and call the kid down to the office saying that this was found and it’s their coat. We did this 4 timed from old navy, Macy sales last year. It’s fun knowing someone in need right in your area got immediate help. Cause burr it’s cold out right now.”

Exercise equipment

  • Suzann shares: “I had a gym quality treadmill about 20 years ago—I got it through the catalog Damark(called something else know). It folded up and was not too obtrusive but I had a huge master bedroom. Back then I think I paid about $500. Eventually about 7 years into ownership we both got bored and I sold it for about half what I paid. I would look at Greensheet or Craigslist for a used treadmill.”
  • Beth says: “Sears is great for fitness equipment- do not go with chicago home fitness- their service plan is terrible! Sears is great and service technicians are very knowledgeable. It is highly recommended to have once a year tune ups on equipment. Sears has been great with our elliptical! Sure they would be just as great with treadmill.”
  • But Samantha adds: “LOL -we bought ours from Chicago Home Fitness. I actually thing it’s a good place to go to find out more about treadmills as the people working at Dicks, Sports Authority don’t usually know too many details. Consumer reports often reviews them -so that’s a good place to start. We spent about $600 -It does what it needs to but probably not a good enough model for serious runner. I like to walk/run on it. Craigslist might be a good bet if you can find near you -they are heavy to transport!”
  • Advice from Michelle on Facebook: “I bought mine 2 yrs ago on Black Friday. There are a few things to think about, where are you putting it? Want it delivered and assembled? How heavy duty do you need? My answer was yes on all so I did a middle to high grade precor, I think it was at Chicago home & fitness. We needed something that was guaranteed to withstand my husband running:) . The only deal they had running bc of bf was the mat you need to have under it if you keep on carpet and basement. With that, I highly recommend if you are putting it anywhere remotely difficult to bring into your house, delivery and assembly:)”

Gift cards

  • Pam shares: “You can also get Chili’s GCs at Thorton’s 20% off through the end of November! Those seem to be in stock more than the Amazon that I am still hoping to find!”

Kroger

  • Something to look for from Suzann: “Kroger also sells [LaBrea bread] and when it show up on the oops we baked too much rack, they all come home with me!! So tasty.”

Meijer

  • A reminder from Outlander: “If anyone still wanted to buy those bottles of Veev vodka and Vita cocktails, they are still on sale at Meijer. Today is the last day on Ibotta, and until 11/20 on Snap. So I finally did it today. :)”
  • From feelgood: “Eckrich smoked sausage is also $2.00 at Meijer 11/20 – 11/26 , so $1.00 after coupon there.”

Reader requests

  • From Claribel on Facebook: “Any pointers for this first virgin Peapod user…I have no interest in braving the cold this week….it’s going to be a LONG winter!” Check out the current top ten here. The new sales start Saturday. One little tip from me: If you don’t need your groceries right away, you can start an order now and select a date Sunday or later, then on Saturday add stuff from the new sale while keeping the things you added during the current sale.
  • Heidi posts on Facebook: ” Hi–I am looking for deals on the movies Cars and Cars 2 in Blu Ray. Don’t want to spend more than $10 each and would love to find them cheaper than that,”

Shop n Save

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “Even better at Shop n Save free when you use the coupon since the cranberries will be $1.”

Starbucks

  • If you snagged the Groupon, something else to look for from Kari O.: “Holiday Drinks are Buy 5, Get the 6th one FREE. They give you a card and you collect stickers. The promo cards feature the new drinks, but is valid on the yummiest of all: Egg Nog latte.”
  • She also says: “Oooh, my rewards coupon is 50% off a Holiday Drink!” Check your emails for personalized rewards! Rachel and my husband both got 3 bonus stars with a holiday drink purchase. I got a $3 credit wyb five…most likely because I bought one yesterday.
  • Something to check from feelgood: “For those with American Express Cards, sign in to your account online and check AMEX Offers For You (towards the bottom right). Mine had a “Spend $10 or more, Get $5 back” at Starbucks stores. Also found offers for Spend $50 Get $10 back at JCPenney, and Spend $50 Get $10 back at Office Depot/Office Max.”

Tribune

  • Monique posts on Facebook: “Note for lapsed Chicago Tribune subscribers. I got a neat postcard in the mail today. As a former subscriber they will be giving me the Thanksgiving paper and Sundays 11/23 – 12/28 for FREE. I typically subscribe mid-Nov thru end of the year. I meant to resubscribe last weekend. Procrastination paid off!”

Walmart

  • SmartShopper shares: “Last time this Covermate variety coupon was available, I printed it (and yes, mine printed huge too). Took it to Walmart in Rolling Meadows, IL. The variety pack was indeed $1.98 so it was FREE after coupon. The cashier studied the coupon and even called over the Head Cashier, but they did put it through.”

Whole Foods

  • Pam comments: “Yay! Was able to get Zevia free today! I bought 4 six packs, which the cashier told me she was giving me the case discount for. That made each one $2.70. I used the $2/1 IPs with the $1.50/2 WF coupons. Also, got Back to Nature crackers for only $1 each (used $1/1 WF coupon from last month Whole Deal plus $1/1 coupon from this month’s Mambo sprouts.) They do have several gluten free varieties as well, for those of you who prefer. In the end, I got 3 boxes of different crackers and 4 six packs of Zevia for like $3.69 out the door (in addition to the dirty look from the person behind me, LOL). The normal price of one six pack of Zevia is $5.99 there!”

Reader requests

  • Don posts in Hot Deals: Any good deals on new/used Amazon Fire tablets, 7″ / 7″ hdx, I am just starting to look harder at the tablets for keeping a watch of fb, MM, a little easy light reading – eyes are not what they used to be – thank you? maybe there are other tablets you or readers may suggest – Tyia”
  • From Martha on Facebook: “My husband and I are considering purchasing a personal treadmill for the home (asking for cash for Christmas and birthday gifts from family to help pay for it). Some questions I have (as a couponer) are:
    -Is there one good place to get them over another (Sears? Dick’s? What about the model that’s on sale at Costco?)
    -Is there a good time to buy one (are they generally involved in Black Friday/Holiday sales? Wait til after the new year for all the resolution-ary type stuff?)
    -What about the actual treadmill? What are features that I absolutely should have vs. ones I wouldn’t need? I have generally only used whatever is available at the gym, so I don’t know how different those machines would be different than one I’d get at the store.
    Anything else I’m not considering? Thanks!!”
