CVS

  • VB reports: “I got the scrubbers and my reciept says I need 2 to earn my next $10 ecb so for now the limit is not 1 like it says in the ad. Also I scored 6 bottles of the L’Oréal shampoos and conditioners. Free shampoo and that too told me I could still get another 2 for my next $5 ecb so the limit is more than 3 for now as well!”
  • Carolanne comments: “L’Oréal Paris Go 360 Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrubs sell for $5.49, I grabbed two for $10.98 and got 10 ECBs. And even though they advertised limit is one it’s not showing limit reached on the receipt. The same goes for the L’Oreal deal buy two get 5 ECBs. Has anyone successfully completed more than one of these deals?”
  • VB adds: “I tried the scrubbers deal once since after that there was only one bottle left of the scrubber and i am thinking this will be rare to find in the stores the rest of this week. I did the shampoo deal 3 times and my reciept still says I need 2 more for my nest ecb! Free shampoo! (Well besides the tax).”

Groupon

  • From letsshop: “Went to Prime N Tender got 10 #ground sirloin ,made a burger as soon as I got home delish ! expensive gourmet meat market ,so glad I bought a Groupon [$30 for $50] from Rachel’s post couple weeks ago . Going to vacuum seal later in small packages .”

Household tips

  • Outlander shares: “I keep these [bacon bits] in the freezer. So easy to just sprinkle some on food for great bacon taste.”
  • From VB: “Thanks! I use the scrubbing bubbles with bleach bathroom cleaner to use as a pre treater on my son’s white shirts. It is the only thing that I found that will work! (I was in a pinch when I took out his shirts out of the washer and it was still stained I saw that my cleaner had bleach and gave it a try). Unfortunately they don’t carry that kind at CVS so hopefully a Target deal pops up!”

Jewel

  • Kitty emails: “The 10 percent off coupon you get when you get your flu shot at Jewel/Osco has an expiration date of 11-22-14, so good for your Thanksgiving turkey, etc.  (up to a $100 purchase.)”

Loyalty programs

  • Jane says: “There is a new free offer from Eight O’clock coffee for a “Friends” coffee mug when you buy 3- 11 oz. + coffee bags between 9-21 and 12-21. I just checked the details online and it looks like it is FREE shipping for it! You can send a picture of your receipt or send in the US Mail. It says 2 offers per household and allow 12-16 weeks for your mug to arrive. (geez, I hope it gets here before then!) You have to purchase all 3 coffee bags in 1 transaction. I saw this in the coupon inserts from today with the new $2/2 coupon. Go to: www.eightoclock.com/friends to see all the information and other offers about the Friends coffee shop. I would like to have 2 of these mugs, I think they look neat and BIG. We will see?”
  • She adds: “*also, there is $1/1 printable coupon on the Eight O’clock website to use if you’d just like to get 3 bags for the FREE coffee cup promo instead of 4 bags using 2- $2/2 coupons from todays inserts. Here is the link for the $1 coupon to print. (I had already signed up and got mine in an email they sent!) You have to sign up for their website/emails to get it.”

McDonalds

  • Maureen reports: “McD on 75th Street and Naper-Plainfield Rd in Naperville has the Halloween coupons. Bought a few a couple of weeks ago.”
  • From Jean: “McDonald’s at Half-Day Road and Milwaukee (Lincolnshire) sells the coupons.”
  • And Allison says: “The McDonalds on Lake street in Bloomingdale has Halloween books.”
  • Another sighting, from Miriam: “Mc on Butterfield Rd Aurora il has some Halloween books”
  • Sent over by sonia: “For the person looking for the mcdonalds Halloween booklets they have them at the bridgeview one at 87th and Harlem.”
  • Peanutzmom adds: “McDonalds on Summit in Oakbrook Terrace has the coupon books”

Reader requests

  • From shirley: “What is the tipping etiquette for people who deliver furniture/mattresses/appliances? I pay $99 to have the mattress delivered and set up.”
  • VB responds: “It may depend on the company. It was a year ago but If I recall correctly we were told by the rep at Ashley’s to not pay them a tip. She said that they pay them well enough so that they would not ask for tips and according to their policy were not allowed to accept them. At least that is what we were told.”
  • Samantha asks: “So, I’ve got 2 boys. I’m wondering if anyone has had success buying multiples of this [Living Social] deal, and using it all in one day? For example, Mr. 4 gets his own shoot, Mr.2 gets his, then pictures together? Thanks!”
  • From letsshop: “Any ideas I turned in about 18 old ink to [Office] max ,thinking I could get anything free like a rebate !!! Rules have changed big time since I have done this last ,its a 50/50 deal now ): any ideas on how to get the best deal ?”
  • She also wonders: “Anyone find one [replacement printer ink] that Epson printer excepts ? my NX400 knows the minute I put a imitation in ):”

Target

  • Anne reports: “Joliet Target today had lots of backpacks, lunchboxes, and water bottles at 75% off. If someone doesn’t want to order online…”

Walgreens

  • From letsshop: “You probably know this ,but 3 hydrogen peroxide for $1 at Wagreens ‘s today  got me a free  first aid bag *:D big grin

Gift Cards

  • Nikki shares: “I’ve purchased several Starbucks gc from Raise and always transferred the amount from the voucher to my Starbucks card without any problems. All of the Starbucks gc I’ve purchased have been at a 20% discount. Last week I purchased Subway and the actual gc was received in the mail within 5 days of the original purchase. I am very careful to only buy gc that have good discounts and there are many.”
  • From Kim: “Gramma, I have purchased from cardpool many times without problems. I have found it a great way to save a little extra money. If nothing else, the savings cover taxes. Combined with other sales and discounts, it’s a win!”
  • Jen adds: “My apologies if someone already mentioned this, but Target actually discounts some gift cards when you use your Red Card. Now, I do NOT know if it’s all gift cards or just specific types because, frankly, I haven’t gotten around to researching it yet. But I know some are eligible because I bought Disney cards and got the discount. We’re going to Disney World and I had learned on one of the Disney travel forums that if you bought the cards at Target you’d get 5% off and they can be used to pay for hotels, food, etc. None of the employees at Target knew, and in fact they insisted it wouldn’t work, so I bought one test card and it worked like a charm. Now I’m buying batches of cards each time I’m there, which is helping us pay for our vacation slowly over time AND saving us 5%.”
  • Maureen says: “Jen, you are so right – we paid for both a Disney Cruise and a Disney vacation with gift cards from Target. When you’re spending 1000s on a family vacation a 5% savings can add up to hundreds of dollars.”
  • Another option from Kari O.: “I reload my Starbucks goldcard at the kiosks inside Target and use my RedCard…. Automatic 5% discount. An employee told me about it. I also sometimes use MM Target giftcards as payment to reload my Starbucks goldcard. lol”
  • But Rita says: “I checked Panera and Subway discounts on Raise. These are not a deal. Check out giftcardgranny.com for any merchant you are interested in. A listing of all sellers show up with discount and fees. Click on the ‘discount’ heading and they will be listed highest to lowest. They also reference return policies of each company. I buy cards often. Have had two issues with the value not being on the card but was refunded quickly by both companies. Use them within the guarantee.”

Kohl’s

  • A heads up from Charlotte: “My husband has a lot of these shirts. Be aware that they are fairly thin and with regular use will last 9 months to 1 year.”

Jewel

  • From dani: “thanks Yvette, so I ventured over to jewel on wise and roselle and sure enough 12.49 minus 3.50. I stocked up big time. If I can get double rolls for 30 cents or less…it’s major stock up time. I would have bought more, but I am afraid of my husband’s response. the kids right now are having a super fun time in the basement playing nerf guns with the TP walls that they built. I did pay 12.49 plus minus a 1Q at my palatine store which is still a stock up price fur us. thanks again! if you are in the Schaumburg area…go get some TP. They still had a lot there.”
  • And Cari says: “Palos heights $12.49-$3.50 instant =D”

Mariano’s

  • Rita comments: “The Ortega black beans w/jalapenos are priced at $.89. Use the $1.00/2 on Wednesday Double daze and get them for free. I think the link is ortega.com/promotions. I make 4 cups of rice (cooked) and then mix with bite sized Kielbasa that I have browned, a can of ortega black beans w/jalapenos, a can of corn, a couple of handfuls of grated cheese, cumin to taste (I like alot) and a splash or two of chicken broth and call it dinner! Obviously you can really play around with the ingredients on this one!”
  • A warning from Pam: “Ugh, so I went to the Mariano’s in Shorewood, they did not have this milk. Couldn’t even find a spot for it. Finally asked a guy and he said that they were having a problem with receiving milk that was only a week away from expiration, and ended up often throwing a ton of it out, so until “they fix the problem” they are not going to carry it. Hmmm….maybe it might not have been a good idea to put it in the ad, then? Also, didn’t have much of the Noosa yoghurt. None of the flavors that I wanted were in stock, such as Pineapple, Honey, or the seasonal Pumpkin. Man, do I wish that store was still a Dominick’s! Really not impressed at all!”

Meijer

  • From Ashley on the diapers: “Some of the Jumbo packs are 38ct or more, and not triggering, but people are calling catalina and having it honored. But it is rolling, even though it is a store coupon”

Reader requests

  • From Laura: “Hi Don, and fellow rain barrel users. I too am a rain barrel fan. But the mosquitos this year have been so bad because of all the rain. so my question is Are mosquito laying eggs inside my rain barrels? If so what do I do about it? Thanks”
  • Pam asks: “I’m wondering about Zaycon Foods chicken…..we’ve purchased it before and were happy with our purchase but that was before the whole “chinese chicken” I’ve read about. Zaycon’s site says the chicken comes directly from the “processor” but where does it come from before that? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated, thanks!”

Target

  • On expiration dates changing, Kari O. says: “Cartwheel offers can disapear quicker than intended, kinda like when printable coupons are out of prints. So, most likely the offer is nearing its limit so the expiration date got moved up quicker.”

Treasure Island

  • From seachicago: “Here’s a decent Barilla deal for city shoppers: Treasure Island has most varieties of Barilla pasta on sale this week for 88 cents, limit 4. Barilla sauce is also on sale for $2.50, and I found a tearpad next to the sauces with a q for $1 off Barilla sauce when you buy 2 Barilla pastas. So, buy 4 pastas (use 2qs 55 cents/2 from 9/7 SS) and 2 sauces (use 2 $1 tearpad qs) for $5.42 + tax. I think TI is a Centrella store, so maybe this deal is running at other stores, too.”

Walgreens

  • A report from savinlikeu): “Went to Walgreens and purchaced 3 bags of Riesen candys (Love these!) and out prints a manf. Q for 2$ off three, stack with wags store Q and there only aprox. .17 each piece I of course rinse, lather, repeated! Each time you get a new 2/off 3 Q”
  • Kitty emails: “Walgreens has Mentos candy on a monthly deal for 59c. Shopmium has 50c back, so 9c.”

Whole Foods

  • Something to check for from Eun: “I have a $1 Imagine Chunky Style Soups (Italian Style Wedding is considered “chunky”) offer from checkout51. Check if you have it too?” Not everyone does, but worth checking!

Amazon

  • A find from Outlander: “I found this [Chef Boyardee pizza sauce] on Amazon. Only $7.88 for 12 cans after Q and S&S. Anyone know is that sauce any good?”
  • From Charlotte on Facebook: “Cheap tissues! Get your cheap tissues! $28.18 for 18 packs of tissues [on the 20% Subscribe & Save tier]. 210 tissues per box (so larger than the average boxes at the store). Comes to $0.007/sheet if my math is correct”

So then roll that ECB into two more, with another $5/$10 coupon and get them four boxes for net $4.98 pop. The $5/$10 scans right through because you are at 98% of $10.”

Reader requests

  • From letsshop, on the Groupon deal: “Has anyone ever made a purchase at Prime&Tender ,thinking expensive ,not a steak person anymore would like to buy pub burgers or ground beef only ! wonder if I would have a problem with that .The store is so  close to me (:”

I have never had a coupon rejected at either place, but I typically only use a few each time I go. But I have definitely used different types of black and white printables there with no problems.

Walgreens
