CVS

  • From jaci: “Looks like you can do the candy deal twice at CVS even though the ad says 1.”

Food 4 Less

  • Martha posts on Facebook: “Hi Rachel, I just read elsewhere on Facebook that the Food 4 Less in Bolingbrook has started marking down their merchandise in the stores in preparation for its closing next month. That person only mentioned Baby formula is 30% off. I called the store and the person said that “selected items” are marked down, not necessarily sections of the store. Does anyone know anything else that has been discounted? Also, she said that they are still accepting coupons on discounted items.”

Meijer

  • A question from ellen: “were the p&g catalinas nationa or store ones? i have a raincheck for the olay but only want if the catalina is still good. do you know the end daes?”
  • Ashley responds: “It is over but it is returning again. I believe its next week”
  • And ellen asks: “do you mean next week starting tomorrow 10/23 or next week 10/26-11/1?”
  • S.T. shares: “About the Mejier cheese deal: I too was only deducted $2.48 with the same scenario. I have noticed that BOGO deals combined with mPerks MQs will deduct the amount of free item after the MQ discount. I was not happy when I was buying BOGO vitamins last month with a $3 off mPerks MQ. Is this right?”

Menards

  • Patty emails: “If you still have your Menards Sorry Slip (rain check) for the Curad Flexible Fabric bandages at 2/$1, use them soon as these items are now in the Clearance section of the bandages.  It looks like Menards has switched to Band-Aid brand and will no longer carry Curad.  They’re marked down to $0.96.”

Online deals

  • Sara shares: “Saw this tweeted by a Baseball America editor: Kindle editions of 10 baseball books available for under $2 each during World Series: www.thebaseballreader.com/ High and Inside, by Russell Rowland — $0.99 Sol White’s Official Base Ball Guide — $1.99 The Greatest Show on Dirt, by James Bailey — $0.99 The Ringer, by Jenny Shank — $1.99 The Suitors of Spring, by Pat Jordan — $0.99 The Rules Abide: The Thinking Fan’s Guide to Baseball Rules (With History, Humor and a Few Big Words), by Jim Tosches — $0.99 The Book of Baseball Literacy, 3rd Edition, by David Martinez — $0.99 Nine Bucks a Pound, by James Bailey — $0.99 Parker Field (A Willie Black Mystery), by Howard Owen — $1.99 Slouching Toward Fargo, by Neal Karlen — $1.99″

Pumpkins

  • Anne reports: “Meijer had pie pumpkins for $1.50 each & Aldi’s were $2.”
  • Christine shares: “Joe Caputos had pie pumpkins for .38/lb. They were small and I bought 3 for 1.81 last week.”
  • Alicia adds: “Re: pie pumpkins – doesn’t Menards have them for $1.49 this week?”

Reader requests

  • Jeff sends over: “I wonder if you or your readers would know of GF restaurants in the Glendale Heights/Bloomingdale/ Carol Stream area (or even St. Charles on North Ave). I am taking my friend out for her birthday and she can only eat GF. I already looked around but didn’t come up with much. Panera doesn’t seem to carry GF.”

Walgreens

  • Mandi found: “Walgreens has fleece lined leggings for 2/$10. I just bought some and they seem like they are good quality.”

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

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.

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

Amazon

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “Read the reviews before you buy [the Cuisinart ice cream maker]. I did ended up getting one at Costco only to discover that the reviews were right. It never froze the liquid I put in.”
  • But Outlander says: “I have that. Love it. As a matter of fact I have the ingredients to make my mango ice cream out on the counter right now.”

CVS

  • SmartShopper confirms: “I just came back from CVS and did this Coke deal (4pm on Sunday). I purchased (3) 12-packs of regular Coke. Looking at the receipt, they rang up at $5.99 each but below that it shows “sale savings” -$8.97.  I also received the $5.00 ECB  which equal $1.33 each 12 pack!”

Groupon

  • A warning from Susan: “I bought one of the Skechers Go Walk monitors last time they were on sale and it was awful.  The directions were in poorly translated English and when I called for help, Skechers told me they licensed another company to use their name, but they don’t provide Customer Service on the product.  It is not nearly as good as the Fit
    BIt products.  Spend the extra money.”

Household tips

  • From Outlander: “I roast red peppers on a much larger scale than that, for a couple of different uses. I prefer to clean them before roasting, just cut around the stem and remove the seeds, leave the rest whole. I also always roast them on a baking pan lined with foil for easier clean up. And make sure your baking sheet has a side or it can leak, peppers can sometimes have a lot of liquid. One thing I make is red pepper salad- after roasting them, put in a dish and cover with a bit of white vinegar. No oil needed. Add some chopped garlic and a touch of salt. Give a stir and let sit for a day or two before use. It will easily last a month in the fridge. Put on sandwiches or as a salad for meat and potatoes. The other thing I make is called Ajvar and is a kind of roasted red pepper and roasted eggplant spread.”
  • And Judy S. says: “I broil the red peppers, turning after each side is blackened and then I put them in a paper bag, heatproof bowl, or wrap in foil and let steam with their own heat for about 10 minutes. Great also with pasta, black beans and good Parmesan cheese.”

Meijer

  • From Caroline on Facebook: “Check your clearance at Meijer. I found Rolaid tablets for $1.12 a bottle and used the BOGO from the October P & G. I saw the liquid kind there too.”
  • Sheri shares: “On the $10 off your purchase of $25+ Playtex, Carefree, Stayfree, Schick, etc. I purchased (3) 32 ct. Playtex tampons ($6.99 each) , 2 packs of 20 ct. carefree panty liners (.99 each) and 1 pack of Stayfree pads ($2.89) and used 2 printable manufacturer coupons for $3 off playtex and one $3 off on my mperks, also used two .50 off panty liners in 10/5S and 1.00 off Stayfree. Paid about $4.84 for all those products. Not a bad stock up price.”

Target

  • A heads up from Debbie: “Speaking of SuperTarget, apparently the All You magazine that was posted a few days ago with man. coupon and Target coupon is only available there and not smaller Targets. We don’t have one here in Central IL that I am aware of.”
  • Maureen found: “I looked online, these seem to be the stylers that will trigger the $5 GC: TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Aerosol Hair Spray 11 oz; TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray 8 oz; TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum 3.3 oz; and Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray 8 oz. Sorry for being so confusing, my Target doesn’t have these.”

Walgreens

  • From Natalie: “This may be a glitch, but I bought two packs of the Dentyne Ice gum that was on sale 2/$1.50 and still got 1,000 BR points. Paired up with the $1/2 MQ from 10/12 SS, made this .50 mm.”
  • Susan: “Walgreens sells [fleece leggings] for 5.99 or 2/$10″

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

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.

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

Apps

  • On Snap! by Groupon, VB points out: “Saving it to your list doesn’t guarantee that you will be able to redeem for that offer. Some one told me they had the offer and then when they went to redeem it had reached the limit. So basically I am not going to factor these offers in my deal for bottom line price. I have a full time job and kids and do not have time to run out of the house at the drop of a hat. I am wondering how many people emptied the shelves for this and found the limit was reached!” Unfortunately, most of these type of apps work like that.

Jewel

  • Jane says: “I realize these are both manuf. cpns. but do you see any way you can combine both the Fresh Express $2/2 in this weeks ad with the past BIG BOOK cpn. buy 2 fresh express get 1 free one? I am always confused on Jewels policy on the free ones. If you know how many to buy and if it’s possible to stack these? Thanks. PS by the way, how is spinach considered a “blend”? It even shows a picture of baby spinach on the new flier coupon!?” Jewel allows the use of a cents off coupon with a bogo coupon, so: Buy three. Get one free with the buy two get one free coupon, and use the $2.00/2 on the other two. So if you bought all spinach, it would be three for $2.00 after both coupons. I can’t tell you why they always put spinach in with the blends!
  • Something to look for from Kitty: “Some Jewels have eggs for 99c and 5 lb potatoes for 68c, so check the items at your Jewel.”

Reader requests

  • From Kristin in Hot Deals: “Cheap play-doh in large quantities? For a school drive. Looking for ideas”
  • Pamela replies: “Dollar Tree has generic play doh. It comes in packs of 8…. 8 different colors…. 1.5oz ea…. Can’t beat it for a buck. I bought 4 pks for my sons birthday party good bags. The kids loved it… Held up well & keeps well in container provided.”
  • An idea from Gerry: “Make your own” Unfortunately, Kristin says: “Making own not an option we are collecting for a hospital” But to keep in mind for next time!

Resale

Target

  • A find from Sharon V: “Re: dehumidifiers – I picked one up at Target last week on clearance for around $57 – was a 45 pint which is kin of small but has the hose connector for floor drains which works well in my basement. The same one was listed for $199 on Target’s own site, so check your local Target to see if they have any.”
  • A Celestial Seasonings option from jane: “There might be a Target cartwheel, too, and some tea on sale this week.” So there is, and it is 20%!

Walgreens

  • A tip from Carolyn: “This is probably stale now, but if you’re still looking [for the flaxseed], it’s in the long skinny October Savings Booklet on page 60. My problem was that I couldn’t for the life of me find the actual product in the store? Whatever.”
