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

Groupon

  • 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.”

Jewel

  • 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.”

Loyalty programs

  • Kitty emails: ” If anyone has been having trouble getting to the Driscoll’s berry survey site, they have revamped it.  You can get to it by going to www.driscollspanel.com

News

  • 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 amazon.com 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?”

Target

  • 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!”

Walgreens

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

Everything at Henry’s stand is certified organic. He is in the back row at the very end. Here is a link to what Henry is bringing to the market tomorrow. www.blog.brockmanfamilyfarming.com He is also doing a free garlic tasting from 2:30-3:30 at Boltwood Restaurant at 804 Davis in Evanston where Lulu’s used to be.

Online deals

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.”
  • One from karen: “Any good deals on 80/20 ground beef this week? I need lots.”

Recipes, etc.

  • Angie shares: “Baked Parmesan Zucchini has become a favorite here this summer. 4 Zucchini, quartered length wise, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 2 tblsp olive oil. 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 Allrecipes.com. 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.

Target

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

Walgreens

  • 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. This offer is only through 7/26!! So after rebate we paid 11.99 for 84 pills.”

Whole Foods

  • Maureen found: “Whole Foods also has an online print $1/1 Organic Valley String Cheese to stack with the $1/1 Organic Valley MQ.”

Walgreens and Target deals

  • At Walgreens, stack with the $1.00/1 Purell coupon in the August booklet. Starting 7/27 (when the August booklet should also be out in stores), 8 oz Purell will be on sale for $2.99. Have fun fighting with their registers to get one free after both coupons.

Apps

  • A suggestion from David to go with the Checkout 51 offer: “Check your local store’s liquor department: I found 8.4oz cans of dole pineapple juice at the Quincy (24th street) County Market for just $0.50, so a $0.50MM after rebate!”

In-store deals

  • Kelly posts on Facebook regarding mattress deals: “Locally Gustafsons and The Room Place have sales right now

Groupon

  • Jenn is wondering: “I think I belonged to SAM’s YEARS ago … prior to 2005 probably. I can’t remember if I had the membership under my name or not. I tried logging into my account and it doesn’t recognize any of my email addresses so I wonder if I can use this. I’d hate to buy this groupon and then be told it’s only for “NEW” members altho as I’m getting older, my memory is seriously failing.”
  • Judy S. responds: “As long as your membership isn’t current, it should work. I’ve read comments from people who said their membership had lapsed only by a month and it worked. I wish I didn’t renew mine in April but we needed tires.”
  • Diane says: “There’s a Krispy Kreme Groupon for Elk Grove Village Choose Between Two Options $8.50 for two dozen Original Glazed or assorted doughnuts (a $16.98 value) $19.50 for five dozen Original Glazed or assorted doughnuts (a $42.45 value)”

Online deals

  • Suzann recommends: “If you want a refurbished HP product(these are usually returns or inadvertent open boxes and they put through extensive testing) try colocomputer.com(Colorado Computer Company). We have used them for about 6 years and they ship fast, which is free, and no sales tax unless shipped to Colorado.”
  • On the Sur La Table sale, Krystle shares: “I just bought the oven to table 2 section stoneware bakers for 8.99 each. These were 70% off. Also bought a cute apron for $11.99 (normally $34.95, so over 60% off). Xmas shopping for my mother in law, DONE! Thanks for the deal Rachel!”
  • On the same sale, Kari O. comments: “I found an Easter cookie dish regularly $13 for $1.99! Not that I need it. I just really wanted to find their 80% off item… lol.”

Reader requests

  • Sue emails: “My son needs 100 hot dogs and buns for a tennis program and I told him I would get them for the tournament.  Where is the best place to find these items?  I would appreciate advice.  Thank you!!”
  • From Amber on Facebook: “Are there any vegetarian deals I.E. Morning Star or other brands in the stores this week?”

Walgreens

  • A deal from Alex: “This would be an interesting deal for anyone who is looking to stock up on Cesar’s wet dog food. There is a coupon for B3G1 on their main website. www.cesar.com If you buy 4 for $0.75= $3 Deduct 1 free -0.75 (possibly could be $1.19 since its the max value) Comes out to $2.25 for 4 trays Each tray ends up being about $0.56 You can compare the price at amazon with subscribe and save where each tray is $0.63 This would be a great opportunity for anyone who wants to try this brand. Although I do not use it a lot in my dog’s diet, it is a nice meal idea for once in a while.”

Ancestry research

  • Charlotte shares: “I tried this, but because I’m from Europe (as in born in Europe), Ancestry.com doesn’t have very good coverage over European ancestors. Kinda bummed.”
  • Patty suggests: “Check with your local library. Sometimes they have the subscription and you can either access it from their website or using a computer in the library. All you need is your library card number. Also, many libraries hold classes on this subject to teach you how to start searching on your own. A fantastic use of your tax dollars!”
  • Connie adds: “It’s a great show, really enjoy it. Often you can find it and its British counterpart on YouTube (the British one is better, of course!) They still run the reruns on TLC and I bet they are on the TLC website. Ancestry is a good deal, but there are many other sites that can be helpful in genealogy that offer free assistance or low cost assistance. Places like FamilySearch (familysearch.org) , US GenWeb (usgenweb.org) and others offer many original records to anyone. If people really enjoy it I’d be happy to write up a bunch of the money saving habits I’ve learned since I started to do genealogy when I was 10 years old.”

Costco

  • Something seachicago noticed: “Recent, I saw a 96 pack (8 dozen) of Ticonderoga pencils for $9.49 at Costco. Go to the store, though, because Costco.com has them for $14.99.”

CVS

  • Scott M. says: “The CVS Deals for Dial can be stacked with a promo that expires on Monday at 11:59PM Eastern Time, where if you buy $25 of Dial products, you get a free $10 gas card: www.dialsoaprewards.com/#tcshow

Freebies

Household tips

  • From Steve F.: “About those white rings on furniture…..This product works great. Had huge white ring on table after Thanksgiving where the hot gravy bowl sat on the tablecloth. Found this Jasco Furniture White Ring Remover up at Clark-Devon Hardware in Chicago…Didn’t pay the high price of Amazon tho! It’s a cloth with stuff on it, you follow the instructions and the ring came out completely. Polished up the table and you couldn’t even tell. Saved the antique table from the dump ditch!!! Link and pic is here, but I think you can find it cheaper other places.”
  • He adds: “Oh….and it’s just not a one time use thing. Put it in a Zip-lock sandwich bag and it’ll last for years.”
  • A question from maggie: “Hi Steve, just saw your reply here. I wonder what the active ingredient in this cloth is – spending $ 26 on a cloth is a bit over my budget but I’d love to try something like this! :)”
  • Steve F. responds: “Maggie, I have no idea what’s in it. I still have the original wrapper, and there is no ingredient listed anywhere on the package. I’ve had mine for probably 10 years or so, and it still works like brand new. Like I said above, I didn’t buy mine from Amazon, and I keep mine sealed in the original zip bag it came in, plus I keep that in another zip bag. I know that I have rescued countless pieces of furniture from thrift stores and alleys in Chicago that had white rings on them with this stuff! , so I’m thinking it’s cheaper to use this rag for years and years, instead of buying new furniture every time a piece gets ruined with water rings. Of course, there is always grandma’s doily to strategically place over that nasty water ring!! :0″
  • Anne found: “The MSDS for the product is here: www.highlandwoodworking.com/msds/188321-msds.pdf.”
  • Another option, from mama: “Liquid Gold would probably work on the white marks on the table. It does wonder for stains on my wood floors!”
  • And one from Jill: “For all the “white ring” problems, if the methods suggested don’t work, I work for a furniture repair company that can help. Depending on the extent of the damage, we charge $120 and up for the repair of a table. Here is the website if you are interested. gfpwis1.guardsmanfurniturepro.com

Jewel

  • Susan C. reports: “Just came back from the Jewel on Janes in Woodridge. Signs say $1.99/lb . Grocery person said he didn’t know about a [$1.49/lb cherries] sale. Went to the register, they rang at $1.99/lb but the checkout clerk was nice enough to adjust the price. Be aware.”
  • A deal from John W: “Also at Jewel this week, the 7-Up/Sunkist/etc soda for 79 cents when you buy 4 includes the 10 varieties, so you can use the 55 cent or $1/2 coupons for 24-29 cent soda. The Sunkist 10 is hard to find, but most Jewels seem to have a little of the other 10 soda. And the new Jewel at Clark and Howard in Chicago has bananas for 19 cents/lb, an in-store special at that store only.”

Meijer

  • From Joy: “My mPerks had a store coupon for $1/4 granola bars, including nutrition bars (any brand). It pictures boxes, but I bought 4 single Clif bars as part of my $10/11 items and it came off! About $.66 each all told. I imagine it would work fine on the Larabar or Luna singles, too.”

Online deals

  • From cowsarecool22o on Twitter, on the cheap Android phone: “Phone runs Android 4.0 (ice cream sandwich) which was released 2 yrs ago. Ibotta runs on all Android 2.2 or newer.”

Reader requests

  • From peaches: “Does anybody know if there are ever any coupons for Hair Cuttery? Do they accept competitor’s coupons? I know that most people here go to Great Clips because they have coupons all the time, and are a lot cheaper, but the last two times I have gotten a bargain haircut at Great Clips, I have been really disappointed with my haircut. At least at Hair Cuttery you get a half way decent haircut most of the time, and sometimes you get a great one. The last time I got my hair cut, I went to an independent salon in Evanston, that did a wonderful job. I got a lot of complements about my hair, but it cost me $45, and I don’t have that kind of money right now.”
  • Michael asks: “Does anyone know whether you have to order a “movie on demand” to apply the $6 credits to or if it just goes to the cable bill whether you have ordered movies or not?”
  • One from Kimberly: “Any good stainless steel appliance cleaner recommendations? We like the stuff we’re using now but the shipping costs are outrageous! Thanks!”

Sam’s Club

  • Interested in the Groupon, Kristen asks: “Been waiting for this to come around again. My membership expires today, anyone know when I’d be able to use it? Or if my husband can sign us up since he is my 2nd person? Thanks”
  • Margie is wondering too: “If you had a membership and it has been expired (since may) is it considered a new membership if you buy this groupon?”
  • Monique reports: “It worked for us last year with the March Livingsocial deal. I can’t remember the actual dates. The sequences was… bought Livingsocial deal, Sam’s membership expired a month later, waited a month just to be sure, and then redeemed the livingsocial code before its expiration date.”
  • Jackie says: “Mine expired this past March. I was waiting for a deal like this, so I didn’t renew. I bought the last one they had and signed up as a ‘new’ member in June- no problem.”
  • Kim adds: “It worked for me last time. I think spouse was primary on the old membership and then now I am primary on this one.”
  • A tip from Kari O.: “Did you know the Sam’s Club app has a scannable image of your membership card? No photo or name, just membership number and barcode. I am logged into my mothers account in Utah and when my sisters run into Sam’s Club for something they always text me “Send me the card!” And I send them a screenshot. Works every time and they don’t ask for ID. Just a strange loophole in case someone loses their card or their spouse is near Sam’s Club and forgot their card. The only bad part is the sample machines aren’t big enough for my phone to slide into. So, no free Luna bars for me. You need an actual membership card to scan in order to use them.”
  • Another from peaches: “You know you can become an associate member for $10 a year. The only downside to it is if you decide to order anything on their website. I tried to order tires on their website recently, and it asked for my sister’s password, because she is the primary member. She lives in New Orleans, and I had to call her up and ask for her password, and after asking me why I had to buy the tires online, and why did I have to buy them at Sam’s Club, and was I sure that I needed new tires, she told me that she did not have a password. She does not order much on line. She is on a guilt trip about not paying sales tax at Amazon. Yes, she can afford to pay sales tax, and plus sales tax in Louisiana is a lot less than it is here. She finally figured out that she did have a password, and gave it to me, and I copied it wrong. It was a long password. I did not want to call her back, so I ended up going to Sam’s Club, and they were able to order the tires for me on line, once I gave them my member ship card.”

School supplies

  • Some tips from mama: “The worst pencils are Target’s own. They break easily and are a waste of money at any price. Our teachers specify Ticonderoga on their lists. And it’s a huge help if you can take the time to sharpen pencils before donating :)”
  • Allison shares: “TextbookRentals.com is a good price comparison website for book rental sites. I also use BookScouter.com when I need to sell my textbooks. I tend to find that if it is a newer book that I can sell it for a higher price using Half.Ebay.com.”

  • Sarah shares: “Target has a coupon $1.50/2 cleaning products. It excludes items under $1. At my store the 2 pack up&up sponges are $1.04 so double check the price at yours. Buy 2 and pay $0.58 after coupon for 4 sponges! Just did it this morning and no beeps!”
  • A scenario from Krystle: “Awesome Target trip/idea I had to share. Buy 2 bags pedigree dog food @ $12.99 ( i found 20 lbs bonus size bags), 2 x pedigree dog treats @ $2.99 each, 2 x Beneful baked delights @ $3 each, 1 12LB bag of Purina Pure Nature kitty litter @ $12.99. Total = $50.95, minus $5/15 TQ, 2x $1/1 pedigree dog food TQ printable, 2x $3/1 pedigree mfg 6/29RP, 1x $1/2 pedigree treats coupons.com printable, 2x $1.50/1 Beneful baked treats 4/27SS, and 1x $2/1 purina pure nature printable NLA. Pay $21.95, plus earn $10 in gift cards from the dog food/ treat combo, and submit for the Purina Pure Nature MIR( option to submit online!) for $10.99. So 96 cents excluding tax!” She adds: “Oops meant $15/50 Pet TQ. Also tax was around $4 for me for this transaction, something to keep in mind.”
  • A deal letsshop did: “Got 3 boxes for my daughter Tampax pearl 36 ct. for about $4 (: nobody mentioned it ! isn’t it a good deal ?I am definitely to old and its been to long since I bought any !!Just trying to help my non couponer daughter .”
  • She clarifies: “$5/$15 Target coupon today’s paper and (3) $2/1 and 5 % Cartwheel and receive $5 GC making and $1.65 each”
  • And Sarah adds: “Maybe it is what I did this morning. 4 boxes of radiant tampons or pads at $4.19 each = 16.76. Use the personal care coupon, 5% cartwheel, and $2/1 coupons. Works out to a little over $3 total for all four boxes.”
  • Cynthia emails about the Frozen Sparkle Elsa doll: “I know you had posted about this doll coming in and out of stock on Amazon.  I’ve been watching the Target websites, and checked tonight and almost all the local Targets (Bolingbrook, Wheaton, Orland, etc.) have her listed “in stock” right now.  My mom picked up one in Orland for my daughter’s birthday.  Hopefully this helps other readers with Frozen fans in their homes!”

Toys R Us

  • Ruth reports: “Toys R Us had these exact same [Frozen] dresses for $19.99 as of yesterday (7/18)”

Walgreens

  • A deal from Maggie2: “Found a great deal on Centrum vitamins at Walgreens today. 125 count were on sale for $9.99, plus BOGO 50%. I bought two for $14.98, used a $5/2 Centrum coupon in the Wags July coupon book, and two $4/1 coupons from the 7/13 RP. $1.98 for 250 vitamins!”
  • From letsshop, you might find Capri Sun 10 packs for $2.00 and producing 2,000 points when you buy two, so net $1.00 each after points if you find this deal.

Whole Foods

  • Liz shares: “Right beside the Pacific non-dairy beverages are Dream Latte™ Coffee + Almond Non-Dairy Drinks (www.tastethedream.com/products/category/851.php). They were $1.99 for me and there is a $1.00/1 in this month’s Whole Deal. Not free but only $0.99 to try something new. Maybe this will stop me from hitting Dunkin Donuts each workday morning.”
  • David says: “Last month’s whole deal (expires July 31) had $1/2 tasty bite. You can find the coupons here still
  • A find from Krystle: “K stopped at the hinsdale location on the way to breakfast this morning, picked up some free clif mojo bars, and noticed they had Kettle chips with $0.55 MFG peelies. Stacked with the instore coupon they were $1.44 each, not bad IMO. No hassle check out either, oh and Rachel is correct the way they deducted my coupons was just weird. Some scanned, and others were bulk discounted. Overall nice experience, will be adding whole foods to my monthly rotation!”
  • Diana shares: “I go to Wheaton and also can’t wait for Elmhurst to open! I have to second the bulk bins! We get dried beans, rice, oats, coconut, the list goes on and on. The bulk spices are really great and like peaches said are better quality. Plus, you only have to pay for what you need. If my memory serves me right, they had vanilla beans for around $2.60 EACH. There is also a tour you can take that will explain how to save on their items. I think you just need to ask at customer service. I only wish it was easier to know what all their prices were, on produce for instance, since I don’t go too often. All in all, I love going for the great selection and nice employees.”
