  • Rosemary found this, “Free ShopRunner – If you’re an American Express Cardholder, head on over here to score a FREE ShopRunner membership? All that’s required is that you keep an eligible American Express Card as your default card in Express Checkout at ShopRunner! “
  • Chelsea sent this, “Free redbox rental through the weekend. If you text MSTRICKER to 727272 (the redbox texting number) you can help a friend out and get a free one night rental that expires sometime later this weekend. Great way to get a free movie rental!”

Heads Up

  • Melissa sent a heads up on the Walgreen’s bandaid deal, “I tried this deal earlier and the coupon beeped. They told me it was only for first aid products. Lol I asked them if Band Aids were a first aid product. They said it had to be gauze. I think it beeped because she scanned my jingle cash first. They lost a sale for over $30 because I said just forget it and left everything there.”
  • Karen comments on the leggings thread from yeserday, “I too purchased the leggings for my girls.  Very disappointed to find tights not leggings.  I am not certain that they will never wear them.  I had planned on one for my daughter for this weekend.  Guess I will be hitting the stores to find real leggings and not seamed tights.”
  • Connie has a comment on Groupon Goods, “I’m surprised it took so long to get your Groupon Goods order! I’ve placed 3 orders since Thanksgiving and all were received in about a week (some a little longer, some a little less).  That includes the one I placed under the $10 off clearance apparel coupon on 12/6, the clearance video I ordered arrived in 2 days and then the shapewear I ordered took until 12/12 to arrive.”
  • Elizabeth sent this heads up on the Lego Women Scientists, “WOOHOO! I got one. Schaumburg got “lots” in today. They would only let me hold and purchase one, but if you are still looking for this give them a call. Hopefully the keep that policy so everyone gets a chance. As a bonus they are giving out a free Lego ornament, while supplies last.”


  • Andrew commented on the post Money Making Energizer batteries at Meijer, “For mPerks members, these will also count towards the “Electronics” personalized reward. Mine is for $9/$65.”
  • Tori send some information on Beats Solo2 deal at Meijer, “All the Beats items are included.  I got the Beats Studio (regularly $300) for $175 after 25% off, $20 mperk, and $30 oyno coupon.  The Beats Mixrs (reg $249) come to $137. The Beats Drenched are $99.99 this week at Staples. They are pretty much out of stock, but you could price match at Targte pr Walmart.”
  • On the Meijer deals — $15 Bath & Body Works gift cards, Krissy points out, “Bought these yesterday, they are three $15 each gift cards in the package. So $40 for $45 worth if gift cards. Packaging is deceiving. I didn’t realize my error until after I bought them. Tried to return them to no avail.”
  • Feelgood sent a deal alert, “Got an alert from Meijer last night for another Scrubbing Bubbles Catalina deal: Buy Scrubbing Bubbles products between 12/29/14 and 1/25/15 and save up to $3.00 on a future order with coupon. Buy 2 get a $2.00 cat. Buy 3 or more get a $3.00 cat”

Reader Requests

  • Chrissy asks, “Does anyone own a decent air hockey table? I don’t want to buy a professional one or anything, but just one that actually blows enough air for the puck to “float” across the table. Thanks!!”
  • Kay asks, “Does anyone have prepaid/no contract cell service they are happy with? Someone just gave me an iphone 4s so I want to use my own phone. I spent over an hour today with Straight Talk over my order from Tues morning with the ‘free overnight shipping’ that they charged me $14.95 for – when I still don’t have my order. Actually they have not even processed the order yet (36 hrs after they charged my account). Apparently ‘overnight’ is from whenever they process the order (which seems to be whenever they feel like it). They told me they will ‘probably’ process the order in 24-48 hours. And since you have to sign for the order, don’t leave your house for 2-3 days! Precisely why I went with no contract service – because now I can walk away. Looking for unlimited talk, text and data. Anyone?
  • Julie asks, “Another Lego question! (Got great help last time!!) Besides ordering individually from, anyone know where I can get sets or lots of bricks like these together? Also does anyone know what the “ear” bricks are called? Same question for the whiskers and the nose. Oh, and the eyes?



  • Kelly sent a deal she found, “I know there are a lot of Gluten free shoppers out there . . . Saw this at Target in Wheaton today. Glutino gluten free cornbread stuffing on clearance for $2.34, down from $4.69. Seems like a good deal to me. It was on an end cap across from the refrigerated liquor. Also, the Stove Top stuffing rang up as $1.23 or something (even though it was marked as $2.19) and then Cartwheel’s 40% off brought it down to $.75 a box.”
  • From Jane: “I think there is a 40% Cartwheel on boots for the family today, too.”

Gone again :(

Feelgood found that the $5 PEZ gift cards are back in stock at Target. (Well, any denomination, but $5 gives you the most bang for your buck.) Here’s mine from the last round — it’s cute! You pay $5 for a $5 Target gift card, and it comes with the two PEZ dispensers and candy — nice stocking stuffer or little gift.


And while you’re buying gift cards at Target, they are also offering $5 off iTunes codes wyb $50.

  • focadima comments on the Noise Isolating Headphones Gold Box Deal, “We bought my teenage son these headphones 2 years ago for Christmas, he was initially disappointed that he did not get beats But once he started using them he LOVED them and even convinced a few friends to buy them as well!


Heads Up

  • From Lisa, “Got my Gear XS “leggings” . I am certain a lot of you ordered this as it was blogged heavily. Decent item but I purchased several of them as my intention was to pair them with a top as a gift. Now I am out shopping for leggings as when they came the packing reads tights. Totally different mind set from a wearers stand point. Leggings you imagine as pants and could wear with a top. Tights you imagine something like a skirt going over  and more of a under garment. I personally felt that these were misrepresented and would not have ordered them had I known they were tights. Did Everyone else get tights too?”
  • Rachel comments, ‘I always thought of leggings as footless tights, unless they are like jeggings — these are actually thicker than some of the ones I have seen worn with tops?”
  • Lisa replies, “True, they are thicker than a lightweight pair of leggings. I bought a lined pair of leggings at Walmart and they are structured like pants and not tights. These have 2 seams  on the tush part that are very akin to thermal long underwear and are tube shaped as apposed to a pant shape. For tights, they are a decent deal. In my area they are available for about $5 a pair for similar quality so worth the money. If I were buying them for the purpose as they are labeled “tights”, all would have been good. However they probably would not have sold so many (especially to me) if they were accurately described and not represented as something they are not.”
  • From feelgood, “Hollister has all jeans and pants on sale for $20 today only, with free shipping at $25.”
  • Sharisse commented on the Buffalo Wild Wings deal: “I did this last year & never received anything back. :(“
  • Caroline sent this:

  • Michelle found some deals today, “Just got home from Jewel at Geneva Road and Main Street y(Wheaton) and they have the hormel pork loin back ribs for $1.99/lb most packs were $5!! They have quite a few of these. They also have some hamburger patties on sale $4 for 4 patties.”


  • Feelgood sent this comment about a Meijer policy, “Looks like you can buy something today at a higher price, then get the difference back after the item goes on sale in an upcoming weekly ad.”

Reader Requests

  • Rachel sent this for Nancy: Meijer is doing Santa Bucks Wed and Thurs this week, and they’re already available to load in mPerks.
  • Allison sent a suggestion for the kitty litter question from yesterday, “Joanne- I recommend Cat’s Pride Fresh & Light. I use this for my cat with sensitive skin and it doesn’t bother him at all. I use the fragrance free variety and it is dust free and does a good job of keeping the box smelling fresh. Jewel and Meijer carry it and it goes on sale pretty often.”
  • Sabrina also has some suggestions, “Dustless cat litter-we use the Breeze litter box system for our two cats. It uses pellets and also absorbent pads at the same time. Not only is it way cleaner than traditional litter, the cost also ends up being less for us weekly. But the initial cost was higher than a regular box.”
  • –and about the groupon goods, “For the groupon goods I too ordered four things from them. The shipping did take way longer than I anticipated, but I finally received the fourth and final order today. My orders were placed before thanksgiving.”
  • Lisa Maria has a question, “Hi! Any deals when you renew your Sam’s club membership?” two day code, $25 for $4.25

  • Feelgood sent some suggestions for Letsshop on the two day code, “there are a few restaurants in your area that don’t require you to spend double the certificate amount. Examples: Broadway Pancake House in Brookfield, $5 certificate for a $7.50 minimum purchase, or $10 certificate for a $15 minimum purchase. Grand Tavern in Brookfield, $10 certificate for a $15 minimum purchase. Andreas in Forest Park, $5 certificate for a $7.50 minimum purchase.”

Star Wars Phone Cases


  • Jessica on Facebook, found Just Dance 2015 is on sale for $25.00, shipped, for multiple platforms.
  • Vicki adds, “I found ToysRUs has the xbox 360 version on their website for $19.99. Target price matched for me on Sunday even though theirs was on sale for $25 in store. Plus used my red card for extra 5% off!”
  • Debbie sends a comment on the Target Free With Coupons, “Our Champaign Target had the Clorox wipes at $.92 and not the $.48.  I have more trouble with them than any other store when you mention deals in the Chicago area and then we don’t get them here always.”
  • Kay replies, “I have noticed some Target stores here (Western Suburbs) have them priced at $.92 and other stores have them for $.48. Prices are pretty inconsistent even with stores relatively close to each other.”


Two Target Today Toy Deals

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.


Here are a couple of Target toy deals you might want to do today. First up, head to Cartwheel and load 50% off Mega Bloks Call of Duty Beach Set, today only. SoapboxTray comments: “Call of Duty Beach Set is on Cartwheel for 50% off today and Mundelein Super Target has them on clearance for $16 something (normally 20.99). I purchased one and half off the clearance did work. Paid $8 something.”


(While you’re in Cartwheel, also load 50% off Pokemon Battle Arena Decks through 12/20.)

I already told you about this great price for the Little People Disney Princess Klip Klop Stable, now down to just $19.99 on Amazon and eligible for Prime or free shipping at $35.00. This is the number one bestseller in preschool toy figure playsets, and has 4.4 stars in 416 reviews!

  • Well, make it even better by price matching at Target: Allison noticed that you can use the $5/1 Fisher Price Disney Princess Klip Klop Stable from the 12/14 SS to bring the price down to $14.99! Note that it has to be a current price to price match, so I would head to Target ASAP if you are planning to do so, since Amazon prices fluctuate all the time.
