If you’re near Ultra Foods Lombard like… now… you might want to stop in. Tracy commented on Facebook that they had Perdue boneless skinless chicken breast on sale for $.99/lb BOGO. I happened to be right by there when I saw her message, so stopped in — this is short dated clearance (packages exp. 7/1) and mine did not ring BOGO, since they were tagged as Sanderson Farms, lol. I figured it was a good enough deal nonetheless and got six packs (about 9 lbs) for $5.99 after three of the no-longer-available $1.00/2 printables from last month. When I left about 5:35 PM they had around 20 packs left.
Junior High boy elbow not included… Today’s the last day to pick up Swad tandoori naan (5 pcs, frozen) for $.78 at Pete’s Fresh Market! The regular shelf price on these was $2.19, so this seems like a good deal — and these are made with: wheat flour, water, sunflower oil, milk, salt, sugar, yeast, and soy flour, so no weird ingredients. It’s also the last day to pick up cauliflower at $.48/lb and Dean’s sour cream for $1.69 (minus $.55/1 in the 5/10 SS = $1.14).
Bunch spinach, $.50.
3 lbs of Red Delicious apples, $1.45.
Sourdough bread, $3.29.
Meat ends, $2.67.
Dean’s sour cream, $1.69. Used $.55/1 in the 5/10 SS.
3 packs Swad naan at $.78 each = $2.34.
Got $.05 off for bringing my own bag and paid $12.79.
Have you been to CVS yet today? (Don’t read the ingredients on the Atkins bars, yikes… but, the things I’ll buy for MashupDad.)
2 boxes Atkins bars, $12.00. Used BOGO printable coupon.
Gold Emblem Abound popcorn, $1.99. Used $1.00/1 that came in the mail.
Frank’s Red Hot sauce, $1.50. Used $1.00/1 from the 5/10 SS.
Dean’s milk, $2.89. Used $.55/1 from the 5/17 SS and will get back $.20 on Ibotta.
Paid with $8.00 in ECB (forgot about the no milk now rule, oops) + $2.13. Got back $7.00 in ECB ($1.00 milk, $5.00 Atkins, $1.00 popcorn) and $.20 from Ibotta for a net cost of $2.93.
It’s kind of weird how MyMixx emails you your receipt but doesn’t show coupons used, but here’s what’s what. Mr. 8 and I stopped by today for another free Redbox (Paddington — we’re watching it right now and it’s very cute!).
Fortuitously, we also got there during “Taste of Jewel” — so Mr. 8 feasted on chips & taco dip, chips & salsa, brownies, cheeseburger, Laughing Cow, Pretzel Crisps, guacamole… plus his free bakery cookie, then we went home with his Kid’s Club apple. Good day to be a kid at Jewel!
The Banana Boat on the BOGO sale turned out to run as low as $8.99 BOGO — So buy two for $8.99, use the $4.00/2 printable coupon here, and pay $4.99 for two, or $2.50 each. Banana Boat are also part of a spend $25 get $5 back deal on SavingStar. Johnsonville smoked sausage are on sale for $2.50, and look for $.75/1 blinkies right in front. Mangoes are $.25 on the 3 day sale, and get $.20 back on Ibotta for a net cost of $.05.
Two Banana Boat, BOGO at $8.99. Used the $4.00/2 printable coupon, and this will push me over $25 on SavingStar (added to previous purchases) for $5 back there.
Johnsonville sausage, $2.50. Used $.75/1 blinkie.
Apple, $.79. Free with Kids produce club card. (I’m not sure if I’ll get back 20% on SavingStar or the store coupon will cancel it out.)
Mango, $.25. Got back $.20 on Ibotta.
Banana, $.17. Got back $.20 on Ibotta already. Will get back $.25 on Checkout 51 and just got back my $.25 on Shrink. (New to Shrink, use code JQOJWO when you create your account in the app for a $1.00 signup bonus! Be sure to create the account manually; do not use Facebook to sign in.)
So that’s $7.95 with $5.90 back (or possibly a bit more for the apple), for a net cost of $2.05.
Can I just mention one more time how much I like having Fresh Thyme and Caputo’s basically across the street from each other? And I just realized from looking at this photo that one of my Pirate’s Booty is actually Pirate’s Smart Puffs — oops — I grabbed them off the same display and didn’t know they had different names.
- Also: Today 6/24 only Saffron Road simmer sauces are on sale at Fresh Thyme for $1.99. There’s a new $1.00/1 printable and $1.00 back on Snap Groupon (no limit) for a net cost of free!
Garlic bread, $.99.

Use code JQOJWO when you create your Shrink account inside the app, and you’ll get a $1.00 signup bonus! Create the account manually to use code; do not use Facebook to sign in.)

Paid $9.18. So, net $18.14 for everything. Hmm, that works out to $18 in coupons + cash back, so about 50% coupon savings — plus everything I bought was, of course, already on sale :). Not bad for a very produce heavy trip!
I got all sorts of random CVS coupons in the postal mail this week — one general mailer and one “preferred customer” mailer (which I think just implies I shop there too much?). So I thought I’d see how they all stacked up.
2 Coppertone, $18.99. Used $3.00/2 in the 6/21 SS, $2.00/1 CVS store coupon that came in the mail, and $5/$14 sunscreen from the magic machine.
2 Tena, BOGO at $3.99 = $5.98. Used two $2.00/1 manufacturer printables and a $4.00/2 CVS coupon that came in the mail (ymmv here, but they all scanned in).
Gold Emblem Abound popcorn, $1.50. Used $1.00/1 CVS coupon that came in the mail.
Meta Health bar, $1.49. Used $1.49/1 coupon from the magic machine.
2 Almay shadows, $10.58. Used two $3.00/1 from the 6/14 SS.
Cover Girl mascara, $7.00. Used $1.00/1 from the 5/31 PG and $5/$15 cosmetics from the magic machine (on this + the Almay above).
2 Ziploc freezer bags, $5.50. Used $1.50/2 printable coupon. Together with previous purchases this will push me over $30 on the Ziploc/Glade one-or-many-trips SavingStar rebate, so I’ll get another $5 back there.
Paid with $10 ECB and $10.22. Got back $14 in ECB ($4.00 Coppertone, $2.00 Tena, $3.00 Almay, $2.00 Cover Girl, $3.00 Ziploc) and will get back another $5 from SavingStar for a net cost of $1.22.
Did you get any random CVS coupons in the mail this week too? Anything good? I also got a 25% off non-sale items coupon — but had nothing to use it on, lol.
The good health chips advertised on the three day sale starting tomorrow turned out already to be on sale today, too. So:
2 bags Marley organic coffee, $9.98. Used two of the $2.00/1 printable coupon here and will get back $4.00 on Snap Groupon.
Garlic bread, $.99.
American cheese cubes, $1.00.
American cheese chunk, $1.69.
2 good health potato chips, $1.98.
2 Driscoll’s organic strawberries, $5.98. Used two $.75/1 survey coupons.
Paid $21.82 with $4.00 back, for a net cost of $17.82.
Oh, and they also had these little Father’s Day freebie packets in the bath & body section.
My perambulations today took me by both Pete’s Fresh Market and the South Elmhurst Jewel, so I stopped in both. Ended up with a 6.11 lb pork loin at Jewel — decided that for $7.88 it was a good deal (and the smallest one they had!), but now need to decide what to make with it, hmm. (Tomorrow night I think it’s going to be “salad bar” dinner here, so we’ll deal with that on Weds.)
- Pete’s has Michigan red apples for $.29/lb. A lot are banged up, but I picked through and got 3 lbs for $.86.
- Pete’s has Swad tandoori naan (frozen) for $.99 through 6/30. In case you were planning on making pizza or something…
- Pete’s has Driscoll’s blueberries $2.00 through 6/16 — I got two and used $.75/1 survey coupons.
- Pete’s has cantaloupes for $.98.
- Pete’s has regular red grapes for $.88/lb and organic for $1.48/lb — I went for organic today.
- Picked up four more Ready Pac salads at Jewel for $.49 each!
So all together, $22.44 after coupons. Did you guys get the $1.29/lb pork loin this week? What are you making with yours?
Here’s something you can do if you got the $2.00 Colgate coupon from the magic machine at CVS last week and didn’t use it:
- Buy Colgate MaxFresh 6 oz for $2.99.
- Use the $2.00/1 CVS CRT from last week = $.99.
- Use the $1.00/1 manufacturer coupon here to pay just tax, and get back $2.00 ECB. (No printer? There’s also $.50/1 in the 6/7 SS.)
So I haven’t shopped CVS in a couple weeks and had a bunch of ECB to roll, and figured I’d burn them on sunscreen since that we’ll use this summer.
Colgate MaxFresh, $2.99. Used the $2.00/1 coupon from the price scanner last week and the $1.00/1 printable above.
Banana Boat Sport, $10.49.
Banana Boat Kids, $10.99. Used $3.00/2 from the 5/17 RP2.
Paid with $18 ECB and $1.91. Got back $9.00 ECB ($7 Banana Boat, $2 Colgate) & $2.00 on Ibotta for Banana Boat, plus a surprise $1.00 Ibotta bonus for redeeming two Banana Boat rebates. Net cost: $7.91. (We’ve seen better sunscreen deals, but now all my ECB are safely rolled!)
Who says you can’t coupon for “real” foods, right? I went to Jewel today and found Driscoll’s raspberries on sale for $.99 (Lombard store — they also had another brand’s blackberries for $.99, and the sale strawberries were also not Driscoll’s).
2 Hormel sirloin pork roasts, BOGO = $9.92. Used two $1.00/1 Hormel Always Tender coupons.
2 Driscoll’s raspberries, $1.98. Used two $.50/1 survey coupons.
2 Earthbound Farm organic salads, BOGO at $3.00. Used two $.75/1 printables.
Red grapes, $1.79.
Paid $12.48. Oh, they also had a whole endcap shelf of Open Nature Greek yogurt cups for $.50 “priced to clear.” Expiration dates weren’t terrible, either, something like 6/14 on the couple I looked at.
