Checking

Cheese

  • Another thumbs up from Artie: “Second the Wisconsin Cheese Corp that Caroline recommended”

CityPASS

  • 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!”

CVS

  • The Tums deal may be over — Marah comments: “Did the peppermint chewable and got nothing. Boooooo.”

Great America

  • 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.”

Jewel

  • 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”

Reader requests

  • 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!”

Target

  • 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.”

Ultra Foods

  • 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.”

*** 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.

Cheese

  • Caroline recommends: “Wisconsin Cheese Corp. is owned by the other Caputo brother, Pasquale. He has two retail shops one in Melrose Park and the other in Lake Forest. Prices are a lot cheaper most days depending on what cheese your looking for. Worth a stop once in a while. http://www.wisconcorp.com/caputocheese.html

CVS

  • Several of you commented that a $4.00 rebate for Calendula cream just showed up on Ibotta — so if you bought it last week and still have your receipt, or got a rain check to buy later, enjoy!

Jewel

  • On the BOGO Manischewitz broth, Judy shares: “There is a coupon for the Manischewitz 32 oz broth in the calendar that is by the Holiday display in the Highland Park store. I think it was for $1/2.”
  • From Maria S.: “Read this on the Chicago Tribune website: http://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-jewel-osco-debit-cards-0902-biz-20150901-story.html (Not sure how long you have access to read stories online)
    It said you can call Jewel’s customer service center at 877-932-7948 with any question. In the article, it said that Jewel may take up to 5 days to reverse any duplicate charges. Jewel also said it was a “nationwide problem affecting many retailers,” though it didn’t elaborate.”
  • Jane comments: “I asked a girl at the CS desk if she knew anything about this and she said it was just last FRIDAY when the system was down. I did not use a card that day, so I “think” I am fine. I should go online to check and make sure though?” I would!

Joseph’s

  • From Theresa: “Joseph’s ad has 4 manufacturers coupons printed in it for this same sale week. One is for 2.00 off a purchase of 4 Nabisco snack crackers, ritz crackers or ritz crackerfuls filled crackers 8 oz or larger. Not sure if boxes are 8 oz size on anything on sale at Meijer or try using at Jewel this week.”

Reader requests

  • Fran is wondering: “Our bank has decided to start charging all kinds of fees beginning this month on everything from not maintaining a minimum balance in Checking accts, to a monthly service fee for ALL Savings accts (yes, like I want to pay them to have 24/7 use of my money, sheesh!). Anyway, does anyone know of any current bonuses for opening accts, and does anyone have any bank recommendations? Thanks!”
  • And Deb has another question: “Didnt know where to post this– I was wondering if anyone could help me–I have a very aggressive fungus on my pumpkin plants. Its white and covering the leaves. I clipped off EVERY affected leaf but that didnt help. Leaves grew back but they got covered too. Now its spreading down the vines and they are starting to die. I really didnt want to use a strong chemical since my zucchini and cucumbers are in the same bed. I have a ton of teeny pumpkins too so Im so sad! Any ideas at all would be greatly appreciated. TIA!!”
  • Christine asks: ” I know you said you had trouble printing coupons after getting new wireless printer. I have been having same with coupons.com. Were you able to resolve it? I’m trying to figure out how. It is not working properly on my laptop or desktop. Very frustrating. Maybe you can email me if there is a solution.” I wasn’t — but if anyone has suggestions, please comment.

Rebates

  • From liz a: “speaking of settlements, did anyone get the redbull rebate yet?”
  • LovinSavin comments: “I mailed my Bacardi rebate on 6/27 and have not received it yet. the number is 1-800-BACARDI. I haven’t called yet.”
  • And from letsshop: “Loving savings , I called and they are not seeing my rebate , I sent them my Jewel receipt again by scanning a copy this moth that I kept in computer but she also wanted rebate form ! I can’t find what I did you extra one ,was hoping someone kept one and they could scan it over. Thanks anyone (:”

Schnucks

  • Wendy found: “$1.99 bacon!!!! Limit 2 per order. 12-16oz Schnucks brand all varieties. While supplies last”

Target

  • Christine comments: “I just came back from Target in Algonquin. It seems there is a new coupon policy at Target. The cashier took all of my coupons before she rang me up, searched through all of my groceries to get the items to match my coupons and then rang them up. She told me several of them would not work since the picture was not the same, but I had to explain that the description and picture do not have to match. My item has to match the coupon description. I felt like a criminal. Beware, this also took a lot of time! I complained and told the manager that not everyone using a coupon is a criminal ripping Target off. They need to think of a better way to take coupons and educate their cashiers.” Sounds like a bad cashier; to my knowledge their policy has not changed.
  • Heads up from Lisa: “I too was a bit disenchanted with Target this evening. I went in for the Garnier deal that is being blogged on every site to find they pulled the gift card. The cashier told me that because Target realized that there were great manufacturer coupons out, they dropped the promotion. Now, if you were talking about Walgreens and the monthly book I would think par for the course. I was surprised that Target is doing this frankly. Typically they go out of the way to own up to their errors in marketing. Considering this was a destination stop for that deal, I found this to be disappointing that I was penalized for the lack of forethought on their part.”

Whole Foods

  • Tamara shares a deal: “Stonyfield Organic Petite Creme, 5.3 oz are on sale through 9/15 for $1.50. Buy 2, use $1.25/2 Mambosprout coupon and $1/2 Whole Foods coupon and it comes out to 2 for $.75 or $.38 each. If you have access to 3 computers, then print out 6 of the Mambosprout coupons, 6 Whole Foods coupons, buy 12 to get a 10% case discount and you’re down to $2.70 for 12, or $.23 each.”

Cheese

  • A suggestion from Outlander: “As for cheese, I also like Costco, or when I’m at Caputos, I get cheese ends. Then I toss them all in my food processor and just pulse until I get crumbly little pieces. I just call them cheese crumbles. That works great. And if I have a lot of cheese, or a big Costco bag, I keep it in the freezer.”

Coupons

  • If you are wondering if the Auntie Anne’s frozen products coupon is worth printing, jolynn shares: “I bought them at a super target. Ticketed $3.99. My 12 year old son said they were not as good as the store and don’t buy them again…not worth it.”
  • But Daisy says: “I purchased the pretzels from the Target on North Ave in Villa Park, awhile ago though. And yes they are good, not quite as good as getting them in the mall, but worth a try especially with a coupon. They were under $5, I think.”
  • Laura points out: “There is a 75 cent off one Kix cereal coupon on coupons.com and a 75 cent off one Kix cereal coupon on Saving Star.”

CVS

  • Jay comments on the money making Tums: “Got some this morning before work. Still a few left at 105 S Wabash, 2nd floor!”
  • LC notes: “Did you get the peppermint chewables? Some stores have the berry flavor, which does not work.”
  • And from Marsha: “i did the deal tonight at about 9:30 Worked like a charm. There were several boxes left at the store at 3100 Clark tonight. Thanks!!!”

eBay

Jewel

  • On the multiple payments issue, Lisa asks: “How are refunds being issued? Does anyone know? I was charged twice and I threw out my receipt.”
  • And silvia suggests: “got to your bank and contest the charges, they should know what to do!”

Reader requests

  • Lettshop is wondering if anyone has a copy of the long-ago Bacardi rebate.

Apps

  • Allison G also has had issues with Ibotta card-linked offers: “Ditto on the issues with Mariano’s and Ibotta! It sucks. I wish we could just upload the receipt still. I even took my card number out to see if I could submit the old way and no such luck.”

Meijer

pledgecat

  • Sophie got a Pledge Catalina alert — see above.

Menards

  • Jane found a Menards deal I missed: “Free Hoover carpet cleaner after rebate! Page 16, I know I am getting these since we have a cat that throws up all the time and we NEED a spot cleaner. Limit 4 cans it says.”

Reader requests

  • Amy is wondering: “Any deals on iPod touch? I have a friend who is looking to buy her daughter one”

Sam’s Club

  • On the free 60 day membership coupon in the 8/30 inserts, feelgood points out: “Sam’ Club has a 10% upcharge on one day passes, which are not considered memberships. This coupon is for a membership, so no 10% upcharge.”
  • And on the coupon for the free instant savings book, he adds: “Here’s what’s in the Instant Savings book, if it’s the same one you get with the coupon. Says “More than $5,000 in offers”, saw some nice deals there! http://catalog.samsclub.com/instantsavings/national/app.php?RelId=6.5.2.1

Target

  • Kari O. points out: “The Garnier deals gets a little better if you got the Target beauty box with $3/$15 Beauty Purchase that expires 9/6. Pretty much just add a cosmetic, skin care or hair care filler to hit $15 and it will be free.” The deal again: Buy four participating Garnier psa $2.99 = $11.96, use four $2.00/1 in the 8/30 RP = $3.96, get a $5 gift card.

ALDI

  • For those asking if the fresh meat coupon is in the ad in store, Linda shares: “They had the ad right there as I walked in, and it had the $3 off fresh meat coupon. When the cashier rang me out, she put the coupon in my cart, I assume to use again. I asked if she needed it, and she said no.”

Apps

  • Jay has also been having SavingStar issues: “I’ve been having A LOT of problems with Saving Star all of July and August, and I use it regularly. At least 1-2 times a week. It is frustrating to have to contact customer service, and yes, it is 5-10 days. However, if you just respond to the last email with your “next/new” issue, they respond same day/next day! So don’t submit a new inquiry online. Respond to the rep by email!”

Coupons

  • A heads up from feelgood: “Read on other boards that the 8/30/15 Sunday Red Plum coupon insert has a coupon for a free 60 day Sam’s Club membership, and a second coupon for the free Instant Savings book. Hoping it’s in the Tribune!” I’ll let you know tomorrow…
  • And on the new Crayola coupon, Kari O. suggests: “Use at Target! They have Cartwheel offers to stack, including a 40% off SuperTips Markers….!”

Jewel

  • A find from seachicago: “At the deli: Wunderbar Bologna is $1.99/lb. I found a tear pad right there for $1 off a pound. Seriously cheap bologna!”

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

  • From Maria S.: “25 point Kelloggs Family Rewards code: ITSS-OEAS-Y2LU-VKFR Expires 8/28/15”

Kohl’s

Resale

  • Heather shares: “SEEKING SELLERS AND SHOPPERS! Have a bunch of kids clothing, toys and other equipment that is sitting in your basement? Have your kids outgrown them? Consider selling at the Mothers and More Oswego fall resale! The resale will be held on September 12 at Long Beach Elementary in Montgomery. Registration is now open.

ALDI

  • From Linda: “Re: Aldi meat coupon. I used it today on sweet Italian sausage, $3.69 for the package. Paid $.75 out of pocket. The cashier had to check with another cashier sbout how to use it, but it scanned just fine. Yay for cheap meat!!”

Dollar Tree

  • A note from seachicago on the Duncan Hines coupon: “I’ve seen Duncan Hines at Dollar Tree a lot lately, especially their “velvets” specialty mixes.”

Jewel

  • Kitty shares: “8.5 oz Kettle Chips are BOGO $2.99 on Mymixx.  When I purchased 2 of the 13 oz size @$3.68 (they were marked $3.99), $3.49 was deducted for the second one.”
  • Jaci comments on the Ice Mountain deal: “Worked like a charm! If you don’t find any on shelve check the front of your store mine had a ton. Pizza deal was awesome also ton a lot of stock.”
  • And dani combined the Ice Mountain with the DiGiorno deal: “I bought 3 cases and 3 Digiorno pizzas (thin) to get to the Nestle Buy $20, Save $5 sale. Used 3 – .75 coupon and 3- 1.00 coupon. got back $2 cat for digiorno pizza and 2.25 cat for water. so, total 6.55. good deal.”
  • From Michelle b on the Ice Mountain deal: “If you buy 12, $5 comes off instantly on the Nestlé deal ($5 off instant when you spend $20) Use 12 qs and get the 2.25 Catalina. 3.75 for 12 packs of water.”

Meijer

  • Dawn comments on the free Propel deal: “i think they have the sizes wrong. we bought the regular propel water yesterday and they are 710 ml. i didn’t see the fitness water at all at meijer but maybe we missed it. there was a deal on gatorade that if you bought 2 8-packs of gatorade you got 3 750ml bottles of propel for free but we couldn’t find the 750ml bottles……they gave us the 710ml bottles instead for free……weird!”
  • Sabrina doesn’t recommend it: “I bought 11 of the giant bottles of the Propel Electrolyte water to bring to an outside concert at Millenium park. The water tastes terrible and even though it was close to 100 that day, everyone that came with preferred to drink from the nasty water fountains that were providing hot water rather than drink the Propel water. To me it sort of tasted like a flavorless Gatorade, salty with a slimy mouth feel.”

Reader requests

  • Lori asks: “Anybody know of a Highlights Magazine deal? My dd wants this for her bday and I can’t find a deal on it.” I know it’s not much, but here’s a $5 off offer: http://bit.ly/1PVVueH — anyone else?
  • And jane has a question: “Can anyone recommend a book for kids how save and use money wisely. Would like to get for my nephew”

SavingStar

  • From Like2save: “Like feelgood, I discovered that SavingStar is not crediting my account properly. It seems to be happening at all stores, including receipt submission stores, not just Jewel. I contacted customer service on several occasions. By the way, customer service responds within 5-10 BUSINESS days.”
  • Shandelle is also having issues: “I hate the stores in Ibotta the require a card. It almost never works. Over the weekend I wasted so much time in an email going back and forth with one of their reps who was refusing to give me credit and passing off my complaints as “feedback” – um, no, your system is broken and I have proof I bought this item; this isn’t “feedback” !! I never used to have problems with Savings Star crediting my stuff. But lately it’s been a small problem here and there. When Jewel did the free Nature Valley nut bars a couple weeks ago, there was also a coupon for $.75 off a box on Savings Star. It never applied. But maybe it was because it came through as $0 and somehow their system didn’t realize I “bought” it. Their customer service fixed it no questions asked and they almost always do. I’ve had a lot of the produce offers not credit and they just give me credit without even putting up a fight. The problem is their service is soooo slow now. They take upwards to 15 days to get back to you now. Wonder why they don’t just hire more people?!”

Staples

Valli Produce

  • John W shares: “The Evanston store’s prices are similar this week, although it has a $10 off $50 coupon instead of $10 off $75. There is an extra 2-page spread in the Evanston ad with a few deals: Shish Kabobs, $2.99/lb limit 6. Whole catfish $1.99/lb. Focaccia bread, 99 cents. Dutch Farms chicken kievs, 67 cents. Imported Parmigiano Reggiano, $8.99/lb. Eggland’s Best organic large eggs, $2.77. Wrapped candy, 99 cents/lb. Valli is also giving away a back-to-school gift basket at each location, entry here: https://www.facebook.com/valliproduce?app_data=%7B%7D&v=app_190076381016644.”

*** 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

  • On the $3 off meat coupon, from Valentina S.: “I got this $3.00 off meat coupon in the ad at ALDI on 6415 S Cass Ave, Westmont and used it on one package of 73% lean ground beef, 5 lbs., $12.99. $9.99 + tax for 5 lbs of ground beef after coupon!”
  • But Priscilla comments: “I just went to Aldi and used the meat coupon on a package of lean ground turkey for 3.29 and the cashier said that in order to use it that I had to purcahse 2 pkgs of meat. So I was puzzled and she called to the manager and he said ok, but I will check with corporate to verify details of coupon. Anyone else have trouble?” The wording on the coupon is “$3.00 off fresh meat with any fresh meat purchase.” So I think that’s unclear — do they mean $3.00 off any fresh meat purchase, or $3.00 off fresh meat when you buy another fresh meat? Although I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just say $3.00/2 packages if they intended that, to avoid confusion.
  • Maria S. asks: “Does anyone know if the paper ad at the store has the coupon?”
  • Joanne says: “I live in Tinley Park and my ad does NOT have this coupon.”
  • Jane comments: “I live in Bourbonnais and my ad ALSO does not have that nice meat coupon. I even checked in the actual newspaper and it is not there in either my local or my Tribune today. I’m guessing they may put in in the paper tomorrow? We can only hope.”

Amazon

Coupons

  • On today’s new chocolate coupon, from Catherine: “The Ghiradelli Coupon has a long expiration date- 12/31/2015. Plenty of time to find it on sale or better yet a discontinued flavor on clearance!”

Jewel

digio

  • From SmartShopper: Just came back from Jewel. I did the DiGiiorno Pizza deal. I mixed and matched 4 participating pizzas (rising crust and pizzeria varieties). Used three 1.00/1 manufacture principles. I did receive the $3 dollars Catalina. $2.00 Pizza is a great price!
  • And feelgood asks: “Is anyone else having problems with SavingStar tracking receipts and adding payouts to their account? I added my Jewel MyMixx number to SavingStar a few months ago, and for a while all items on my SavingStar list paid out. In the past two weeks, I added 4 SavingStar items to my list and purchased them at Jewel with my MyMixx number, none of them have paid out. I looked on the SavingStar facebook page and noticed others waiting 2 weeks or more with no payout.” I JUST got something from a Jewel trip like three weeks ago that posted to my SavingStar, so it may just be slow — anyone else?
  • Finds from Jane: “Just got back from Jewel and they have the fake crab priced at $2.50 for the one you buy. So after using 2- 75c coupons, it comes to 50c each when you get 2! Naturally I had to argue with a (veteran) checker that I could indeed use a coupon on the free item. But I also scored on the Tribe hummus. Watch for peelies off short dated ones, I found some for all 3 ($1 stickers), making them only 49c for all 3! That’s only 16c each after the coupons and deal. I was happy with this trip!”

Mariano’s

  • Julie asks: “So I am completely not impressed by the loyalty card linking to Ibotta. I have now been to Mariano’s on 2 different occasions, purchasing several items eligible for rebates and NOTHING! No credits whatsoever. I made sure that the rebates were unlocked beforehand and made sure to give them my card (once scanning my actual card and once scanning the card through the ibotta app). I contacted ibotta at the end of last week and today got a response saying they don’t show any submissions since July. This is definitely not easier than taking a picture of my receipt. Has anyone else had success with this? I am really annoyed.”
  • Heads up from Karen: “I went to meijer today and was trying to get my free maricle whip and the 5 birthday cake gums. They were out of both and the lady at the service desk told me if they run out you are out of luck! no rainchecks! just as supply lasts. Bummer!”

Meijer

  • On this week’s mPerks deal, joe asks: “Where exactly are the gums in the store? I tried by the checkout lane, the candy aisle and the cake section,… no luck”
  • And feelgood replies: “By the checkout lane at my Meijer. They were on the top shelf on the left side above all the other gum. Package is white and pink about 3″ by 4″, doesn’t look like regular gum sticks, so kind of easy to miss.”
  • Meg reminds us: “Just wanted to mention, if you got those $2 produce or $2 dairy catalina…..they roll. Each time I used one of those, I got both (one of each) every single time. Make sure not to use mperks or card as a payment. I paid cash each time and got them. I also noticed that when you use the cataline from the same day, it does not give out those catalinas. I have been doing this for the past three days 2 -3 transactions of dairy and produce.”

Menards

  • Don points out: “Sprecher 4 pack soda, $1.27. – this was typo in paper… this price is after rebate and limit 4…. still great deal.”

Pete’s

  • Susie recommends the sale Halal chicken: “The Mediterranean whole chicken on sale for $1.49 is a very good price. I bought it before when Pete’s first opened in Bridgeview to try it. The chicken is very tender and juicy. I will be picking up some this week. :)”
  • And Trish shares that: “Oak Park Pete’s opens 9/2!”

Tickets

  • Patty comments on the Chicago Ultimate Women’s Expo: “I also saw that you can get free tickets at every Starbucks, as they are the big sponsor for the expo. The sign said that stores should have tickets in by Aug 18th. The sign said that it was good for all parts of the expo.”

Apps

CVS

  • Heads up from Kitty: “Looks like the Edge offer that was limit 2 yesterday is limit 1 today,  Tuesday.”

Dental

  • Don also recommends this place for affordable dental work: “In regards of the Midwestern University Clinics 630-743-4500 in Downers Grove that Christine kindly passed along…. I just got done with extensive dental work and everything said about this incredible place is true. Read her review…. they also have a sliding scale for financial need.”

Jewel

  • Some clearance finds from Lisa: “Jewel Clearance.-$1.00 MM -i just picked up some L’Oreal Infallible Lipsticks on the clearance end cap for $1.99. Used the 08-09 RP (ex Sep 05) L’Oreal Infallible Pro Last 2 Step Lip Color $3.00 /1 coupon. Also picked up some Tazo Camomile K Cups for net .69 a box. They were $2.69 and I used the 07-12 S (ex Oct 12) Tazo Tea K Cups, 10 or 16 ct $2.00 /1. The overage from the lipsticks actually more than paid for the tea so it was a fruitful stop. I actually went there for the free fruit things Rachel wrote about. This was the Bourbonnais store and they do not have any left but just in case your Jewel is clearing the same things bring your coupons with you.”

Mariano’s

  • News from Brandy: “Speaking of Dominick’s, the former location on Naper Blvd./75th street in Naperville is under serious construction (gutted and right side totally demolished!) to get started on the Mariano’s transformation. Can’t freaking wait! Until then, I will continue to ignore and be jealous of the Mariano’s highlights and Wednesday doubles posts. :/”

Meijer

  • Another mPerks freebie from feelgood: “Also check your mPerks for a $5.00 off 5 coupon on Project 7 Birthday Cake Gourmet Gum, redeem thru 8/29. Gum reported to be $0.99 each, so 5 free gum!”
  • And deals from S.T.: “I picked up 2 Melt Organic Spreads at Meijer today going for BOGO Free. I forgot to check for how long but I assume it’s until Wed. It’s $3.99 and they had Original & Honey flavors. I also had a $1 for this product in my Ibotta app. I wish I checked my email before heading out because they emailed me a $2 off coupon and it’s also here: http://www.meltorganic.com/special-offers/. Also, if you’re doing the but 8 & get $8 off Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces was included in the deal with the final price of $1.99. There is a $1 Ibotta for Snyder’s as well.” Here’s a coupon for $.55/1 bag Snyder’s of Hanover pretzel pieces.

Reader requests

  • Abby is wondering: “Has anyone had any luck finding a bathroom rug that you can use the $5 off mperk?”
  • Mandy replies to yesterday’s question about personal checks: “I don’t know what is a good price for personal checks because my bank gives them for free, but, I used to buy from Walmart online personal checks and at the time they were the most reasonable to me.”

Rebates

  • Ella asks: “Has anyone received their rebate money from the Bacardi offer a little while back?”
  • And feelgood replies: “Haven’t received mine yet. Everyone I know who sent away for the rebate hasn’t received theirs, either. The December one took forever to arrive also.”

Settlements

Target

  • On the today only IAMS dog food deal, Jacque says: “My Target Wood Dale had additional 2.00 coupons on each bag also! 9.99 5 pounds but some bags had 20% in the bags”
  • Same price for nilo: “9.99 at my store.”

Walgreens

  • A surprise find from Tamara: “I found an unexpected deal on TreSemme tonight at Walgreens. I bought 1 hairspray and 1 heat tamer spray at $4 each. I only had one $1 coupon so I used that. Then I got back a $4 RR! This means that each product ended up being $1.50 each. If you had two coupons to use then they would be $1 each.”

CVS

  • Kitty comments: “At CVS, the Edge shave cream deal is limit 2, not 1 as advertised. The orange can labelled sensitive is $2.99.  Others are $3.49.  These prices were in Evanston and Niles.”

Dental

  • On yesterday’s cheap dental care question, a response from christine:” Jeff, I called the Midwestern University Clinics 630-743-4500 in Downers Grove recently. This is a university with a dental school where the students would be working on you. You can call to get more information but the cost is really minimal. We are in the process of being evaluated to see if we would be good candidates for the school You can have all sorts of things done here: cavities, sealants, crowns etc. There is a lengthy process, but we have no dental insurance so this looks like a good alternative.”
  • And miriam shares: “For kids dentist I take my kids to the VNA clinic in Elgin they only take kids but the doctors are awsome 8474717370”
  • And yvette suggests: “Jeff, try 1st Family Dental. I’ve been going to the Roselle office, but they have other locations: http://1stfamilydental.com/ I don’t know about the other offices, but the Roselle one is great. Very modern, top equipment, very professional, excellent care!”

Enchiladas

  • Making enchiladas? A suggestion from jen: “If you don’t feel like making Enchilada sauce, I recommend the Rick Bayless Frontera red chile enchilada pouches – it’s fantastic. I make almost everything from scratch but this is a great pre-made product. I use two pouches for a large tray of 12 enchiladas.
  • And from Celmarie: “I make my enchiladas like a lasagna. I alternate layers of sauce, tortilla, chicken, corn , black beans and cheese.”

Kmart

  • A deal from feelgood: “FREE 12-pk Smart Sense 8 oz water on Friday 8./28 at Kmart. Text Free to 56278, reply Y, then click for mobile coupon.”

Meijer

  • Another note from Kitty: “I was at Niles Meijer today, Monday, to use the last of my $2 produce and dairy coupons. Lo and behold, I used one produce coupon and got back BOTH a produce and a dairy coupon. It worked with the older ones, but not when I used one of the ones I got today.  Maybe another day?”
  • And from karen: “fyi, I have ore ida potatoes on savingsstar. and Jacks pizza has a catalina that printed for me. I got $4 for buying 6. and I had 2 previously available printables 75/1 so it was a pretty good deal if you like Jacks!”

Reader requests

  • Lori asks: “Anyone know where to get checks cheap if you are a returning customer? I went to order from a few companies and the deals are for newbies only.”

School supplies

  • A heads up from seachicago: “FYI: as of today, one Expo *or* Sharpie coupon per customer; not multiples or one of each, *one or the other*. Corporate issued a memo, cashier showed it to me. Apparently, it was “too chaotic” yesterday with people trying to get their free Expos and cheap Sharpies!!!”
