Nice Target Pampers deal with our $10/$40!


Here is yet another awesome deal using our $10/$40 when you purchase online and pick up in store Target offer this week! Thanks to Nancy M for spotting this one. Select Pampers Giant Pack diapers are offering a $20 Target gift card when you buy two:

All of these make for a good deal, but Baby Dry will be cheapest:

Size 3 Baby Dry giant packs have 144 diapers, so that works out to 11.8 cents a diaper. The up & up diapers deal works out to 10.6 cents a diaper when you buy size three, so it’s only a penny more per diaper for the brand name — plus, save even more if you pay with REDcard.

Remember, Target is giving $10/$40 online orders when you choose in-store pickup this week! Here’s a great deal Kristin found:

(If you have a REDcard, save even more!) There are 180 diapers in a size 3 bulk pack of up & up diapers, so that is just 10.6 cents a diaper after instant discount + gift card.

  • From julie: “FYI – we just ordered [the Sam's Club membership] a day or 2 ago and they mail the vouchers to your house. I’m not sure if they mail everyone’s or if I clicked the wrong option, but I wanted to give a heads up to anyone that wanted to activate and use the membership right away that you’ll need to wait for it to come in the mail.”


  • From peaches: “The Kemp’s frozen  yogurt is not on sale anymore at Jewel.  I was just there tonight.”
  • On the D&W franks and sausages, Jane says: “Bourbonnais has a ton of books out BUT only chicken and hot dogs left, so $1.33 down to 50 cents each after coupon! I got several different varieties and they were all clearly marked on shelf.” *hint to others…if you don’t know where these are (like me!) they are in the Deli section and not in the regular meat or lunchmeat section. It took me 15 mins. to locate them this morning. Duh, and the seafood guy even had no clue where they were either!”
  • From feelgood: “I accidentally found this deal as I was poking around looking to redeem my expiring rainchecks for deli beef franks. Visited several Jewels, lower prices not marked at most stores, had to do a price scan to check for lower prices. I bought these for $3.00 each: smoked sausage cheddarwurst, black forest bratwurst, natural casing beef franks, uncured beef franks. Deli beef franks also $3.00, didn’t get any this time around. Saw 3 types of chicken sausages 3/$10, didn’t get any. Deli franks $2.50, made with beef and pork (no chicken filler), might be good. Found books in all the Jewels I visited this weekend: Lockport, Homer Glen, Lemont, and both Orland Park stores. Be careful and check your dates. Some sausages I got don’t expire until September. I also found some sausages with expired dates at several Jewels dating as far back as July 2nd!”
  • And a heads up from julie: “Check you dates!!!! We bought some last time they were on this sale and they were 1 week expired at the time. We didn’t notice the dates. They seemed to go bad on us within 24 hours after opening the package.”
  • A question from peaches: “Any books in the Evanston, Skokie, WIlmette area? I was in the Chicago Avenue store last night and they were out of books, and all they had were the chicken sausages and hot dogs. All I wanted was the chicken sausages anyway.”
  • Outlander comments: “I just checked my store, no books, but I had 5 Qs with me. I was happy to find the sausages (after a long search, since no one knew where they were :( ), only to see they were all expired within last week or two. Only one pack of Black Forest brats doesn’t exp. until 8/5, so I got that and will try it today. I got rainchecks for 10 Cheddarwurst, and 10 Black Forest brats. Now if I can only find the books! Does anyone have 15 extra Qs they can send me? I mean if your stores still have plenty of books. Please post if you can, I’d appreciate it!!! Thanks!!”
  • And diane also found expired: “No books at the Addison store& all they had were hotdogs. I picked up 5 different packages & all 5 were expired! Wood Dale store had all products as of noon today but also no books.”
  • CHRISTINE reports: “The hot dogs and sausages are on sale until 9/2.” Note they are in Wednesday’s ad at 2/$7.00 and Jewel sometimes pulls tags early, so wait at your own risk.
  • On the 7/31 expiration, Outlander says: “That doesn’t matter, if they were valid during the sale or when you got the raincheck. Even if I go a month from now to redeem my raincheck and use the Qs that exp. 7/31, I can still do it.” YMMV on that, although if you buy them now and post-redeem the coupons, they will take them up to 60 days as long as the purchase was before the coupon expired.
  • Laura reports: “Went today (Monday) for the Dietz & Watson hot dogs. Worked perfectly and got myself some nitrate free hot dogs for $1.00! Note: the hot dogs are not by the “regular” hot dog cooler area. At my Jewel, they are located near the Deli in a cooler.”

  • Artie emails an article: Dollar Tree agrees to acquire Family Dollar Family Dollar Stores has agreed to be acquired by Dollar Tree for $74.50 per share, a 22.8% premium over Family Dollar’s closing price on Friday, both companies announced today.”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle wonders: “Does anyone know if they’ve seen Tortillaland uncooked tortillas around the Chicago area? I received a coupon in the mail to try one free but so far did not see that WM, Jewel or Food4Less carried them. Their site lists Meijer but it’s kinda far so I haven’t checked there yet.”
  • Callie asks: “Does anyone know if the P&G rebate will work with an receipt? They are having a spend $50 get a $15 giftcard on certain products. I think you could combine that with the rebate to get 25 off…”
  • On the washer & dryer, liz is wondering: “So does anyone think this is a good deal?”
  • Jane is skeptical: “It says you are saving $1000 but it is still a “Kenmore” and I don’t care if it is made by Whirlpool (or another company) for Sears’ specs, you are still getting a Kenmore. I hate my Kenmore set, period. I bought it under the impression that it would be exactly like my old Whirlpool set (which I loved) but it is not the same! This set I’m sure is a better and newer model but I will go back to my old brand the next time I buy new. This is only my opinion and I am just putting in my 2 cents worth. Some people swear by Kenmore. It sure does look good on paper though, doesn’t it?”


  • Melissa A reports: “Adult size S-sport shoes ranged in price from 34.99 to 39.99 at the Oswego Target”
  • Krystle shares her ship to store experience: “I picked up my order today, the e-gift card was emailed 10 minutes after (it can take up to 4 hrs). Once you receive the e-gift card you can then add it to your ‘Gift Cards’ on your Target app. This section of the app stores, combines, shares and provides a barcode to scan in store.”
  • Rosemary posts on Facebook: “My Target today has buy one toy, get one toy 40% off. It applies to the clearance toys too for a great deal!”


  • Kitty noticed: ” Walgreens has milk for $2.49; Ibotta 25c = $2.24/gallon”

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


  • Janice is a fan of the HSI flat iron: “Love mine. My daughter comes over to use mine all the time.”


  • On the cookies someone had trouble with, feelgood had better luck: “I bought both the S’mores marshmallow and the Simply Made peanut butter chocolate chip, both rang up $1.49 each after the instant discount. Used $1.50/1 from KFR redemption for free cookies. A friend tried the S’mores peanut butter, those rang up $1.99 and no instant discount came off.”
  • Also from feelgood: “Found this at all three Jewels I went to tonight. These Dietz & Watson 16 oz sausages marked $6.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00 each: Smoked Sausage Cheddarwurst, Black Forest Bratwurst, Natural Casing Beef Franks, Uncured Beef Franks. Deli Beef Franks, marked $5.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00. Deli Franks, marked $5.49 on the shelf, scanned for $2.50. After the $2.00/1 coupon found on page 11 of the monthly Big Book of Savings, makes the sausages $1.00 or $0.50 each!”
  • Finally, he shares: “Jewel has a gift card promo until Tuesday 7/29. Buy a $100 American Express Gift card, get a $10 Jewel catalina for your next purchase. $10 catalina expires a week later. Bought some yesterday, with the $5.95 fee total is $105.95, so a $4.05 MM. Even better if you pay with a credit card that offers cashback, miles or points for purchases.”


  • Lisa reports on the Downy deal: “Yes, it rolls. You will need a filler just like Walgreens if you are using a coupon on every item you buy. I found Downy at my store with Spanish print for $3.47 so with tax it ended up being a $3.88 mm for 3 with coupon.”
  • Jane asks: “So, if you only bought the 3 Downys and used the $5/3 coupon, you will need to buy just 1 filler item (to be able to use the $5 Catalina) or will you need 2 filler items if you also use the 5000 points on that order? Thanks!”


  • From Outlander: “At Kohls, through today, is this fantastic deal on Nutribullet: Go to, put Nutribullet in your cart. It’s on sale for $89.99. Use HOMESALE10, for $10 off, use a code from your email that gives either $5, $10 or $15 off your purchase of $25 or more (my code was $10 off), use JULY15SHIP for free shipping (or it’s free shipping over $75), and use POOLSIDE for 25% off with your Kohl’s charge card (maybe you have 30% off?). Brings it down to $55.64 for me, including tax, and you still get $10 Kohl’s cash for being over $50, so that brings your total down to $45!!!! That is the best price I have ever seen, and I would definitely recommend it!!”


  • Krystle shares: “Awesome deal @ Target this week on Downy. Buy 4 @ $7.99 ea get a $10 Target gift card. Use $2/2 downy Mobile TQ, $2/2 downy printable TQ NLA (I think the same coupon was also in the home mailer if you were lucky enough to get one), $5/3 Mfg 7/27PG, and $1/1 Mfg 7/27PG. You will end up paying $2.99 each, that’s less than 3 cents per load if you buy the regular 120 load bottles. The downy infusions is also included but the bottles are only 96 loads. This trip helped me finish my PG MIR.”
  • Melinda posts on Facebook: “We were at the Lombard Target today and found Up&Up SPF30 (spray) on clearance for $3.00 each, reg price is $6.04


  • Yvette shares some news: “A heads up to Wal-Mart shoppers who like to price match. There may soon be no need to price match at the register if you’re a frequent Wal-Mart shopper. The company is rolling out a new app that will allow you to input your receipt information and will then automatically determine if you could have saved money shopping elsewhere. Any difference will be issued as a Wal-Mart gift card on your next visit. The program is in beta for employees only at this point but it’s working really well and is getting great reviews. I expect we may see it roll out at the end of the year. Couldn’t wait to share with MOM readers!”

$1.83 Target shopping — $.02 Post-It notes!


So I realized I hadn’t yet been to Target this week — and that state of affairs just could not stand. I’d read that single pads of Post-It were just $.02 at Target after the $1.00/1 Target printable, and that Scotch tape was $1.00 in the Dollar Spot and free after the $1.00 Target printable. (Thanks to Coupon Pro for these!) My store did not have the Scotch tape, but it did have a bin of the $1.02 Post-It in the school supplies section!

$1.83 at Target shopping


So I kind of punted on the personal care deal. They were out of the other stuff I had coupons for, so I used the $5/$15 personal care coupon + the Right Guard deal to get free regular Crest paste — because I like the regular paste and it rarely has coupons. They were also out of the grape Farmer’s Pick, so I got blackberry and we’ll see how that goes over…

2 up & up two-pack erasers, $1.04. Used $1.00/2 up & up school supplies mobile coupon (OFFERS to 827438).
3 packs up & up index cards, $1.50. Used $1.50/3 up & up school supplies Target printable (no longer available).
4 Post-It pads, $4.08. Used four $1.00/1 Target printables.
2 Sharpies 2-packs, $1.98. Used $1.00/2 Target printable and 5% off on Cartwheel.
Welch’s Farmer’s Pick Juice, $2.50. Used $1.00/1 in the 5/18 RP and 25% off on Cartwheel.
Purell, $2.69. Used $1.00/1 Target printable and $2.00/1 manufacturer printable.
3 Right Guard Xtreme, $10.02. Used three $1.50/1 from the 7/13 RP and three $2.00/1 Target printables.
Oral-B floss, $1.47.
Twin pack Crest regular paste, $3.74. Used $5/$15 personal care coupon on this, the floss, and the deodorant.

Got $.10 off for bringing my own bags. Paid $1.83 on a gift card.

Reader requests

  • Jane is wondering: “I just got my Hormel Freebie at Kroger but they don’t carry the Celeste pizza anymore. Anyone ever see them at Jewel?”
  • Linda responds: “I just got a Celeste pizza at Jewel in Glen Ellyn on Roosevelt.  They had cheese and sausage flavors.I still get strange looks from the Jewel cashiers who say I don’t need to use my preferred card.  I tried to explain to my cashier today about my magical things that happen online when they scan it.  She didn’t get it, but was fine with scanning my card.  I usually just say “I get magical things online”, and they scan it with no problems.  ;)” I am so thankful my store has a self-checkout! And I also found the pizza at Jewel, but not at Meijer.
  • Valentina S. also found it: “Yes, got mine at Jewel at 7329 S Cass Ave, Darien, IL 60561. They have original and sausage varieties, $1.00 each.”

Recipes, etc.

Preheat oven to 350 coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix cheese and herbs in a bowl/bag, brush zucchini with olive oil. Coat zucchini with cheese mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake until tender about 15 mins or until crisp and gold. I usually broil mine for the last 5 mins. Serve immediately.”
  • One from Fran: “This recipe is from I made it this past weekend (along with stuffed zucchini and grilled zucchini slices), and these are very good. The only thing I did different was after shredding the zucchini, I sprinkled it with salt and let it sit and drain for about 30 mins. This recipe looks to be very forgiving in that other veggies could be added based on whatever happens to be ripe in the garden at any given time Zucchini Patties
  • For your zucchini or any other use, Outlander says: “I saw somewhere that you should never buy a mandoline with a blade that’s straight across, and that the V blade is not that great either. They recommend angled blade. This is the one I have, just the older model (black and grey). It’s great.”
  • Heather posts on Facebook: “You can also shed and freeze for baking later. Just freeze in portions for your favorite muffin/bread. There will be a lot of liquid when it thaws. Just dump it all in. Haven’t had any luck freezing and cooking. Too rubbery. But baking works.


  • Valentina S. reports on Purell: “Thank you, Rachel. I got mine at Willowbrook Target, 12 oz priced $2.49 (50% more free, Refreshing Aloe).”


  • Lisa emails: “Just wanted to mention a deal I just stumbled upon. My son takes omeprazole everyday and we ran out. We usually buy it at sam’s but it was late so he just ran to walgreens to buy some. The 42 count walgreens brand is on sale this week buy one get one free ( 21.99) –nice enough BUT when he got home he had a catalina advertising a mail in rebate for $10.
