Reader Deals 6/25/15: Here are the deals, heads up, and requests you shared over the last 24 hours — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

  • Email Rachel: rachel@mashupmom.com.
  • Comment below, or on any post where it seems to fit.
  • Post on the Mashup Mom Facebook page.

*** 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.

American Express

  • Look for this offer on your account, from CMKW: “There is a promotion for some American Express card holders where if you spend $100 at either Target or Walmart, you receive a $30 statement credit at the end of a 90 day waiting period. It can be used a whopping FIVE times, and it can be combined with anything…coupons or clearance. I made out like a bandit last night after combining my health and beauty and home storage Qs.”

Build-a-Bear

  • Mark asks on the $8 online promo: “Can anyone explain how this works when ordering from them online? The site isn’t clear (at least not to me). So basically, if you order the bear online, it arrives “completed”, stuffed, dressed (if you choose), etc…so you’re basically just buying a teddybear online like you would from any shop? Or do they ship you the unstuffed bear that you can then take to one of their stores and watch them stuff it, etc. It seems that’s the whole point/enjoyment from “BUILD” a Bear…actually getting to build it. If you’re just ordering a teddy bear online, that doesn’t have the same appeal to me. Has anyone done this via build a bear online? I know you can walk into the store and purchase an unstuffed bear, stuff it, etc…but then the sale doesn’t apply….” Here’s what I found online: They come stuffed unless you specify otherwise in the comments box: “How do I order an animal unstuffed? To order an animal unstuffed, please enter a note in the comment section of the order screen.” I’m not sure if you can then just walk into build a bear with your already purchased animal and watch them stuff it — anyone else know?

Food 4 Less

  • TracyS has additions to this week’s deals: “also included in buy 6 save $3 are 59oz minute maid oj $1.99 and Coffee-mate 32 oz creamer $1.99, both below my price points, and both items on my low stock list.”

Fresh Thyme

  • A recommendation from Kristy: “I need to suggest the honey roasted peanut, grind your own PB at fresh thyme! Sooo yummy!”

Jewel

  • Here’s a deal from feelgood: “Essential Everyday 12.25 oz marinade is $1.00 until 7/28 at Jewel, and there’s a $0.50/1 store coupon on the front page of the new monthly Big Book of Savings ad (6/24-7/28), to get it for $0.50.”

Reader Requests

  • One from maggie: “Hi I’m looking for an inflatable (twin or queen) mattress – does anyone know of a deal or perhaps can recommend a certain kind?? Thanks!!” Here’s what I’ve got: I posted a deal here on a queen with built-in pump. Or, at Menards through 7/5: Twin classic air bed, $12.99. It doesn’t look like it has the built-in pump, but you’d have to check details. Anyone else?
  • A response to yesterday’s question about which papers to buy in NJ, from Mary: “The question of papers from NJ – I would suggest The New York Times and The Philadelphia Inquirer.”
  • Artie also replies: “Roni,RE: NJ couponws

Ultra Foods

  • Finds from Artie: “Lansing store has a variety of closeouts too numerous to mention located in the SouthWest corner of the store and they were still adding things as I was leaving.. Found Peak Fresh Re-Usable Produce Bags, Set of 10 for $2.00. Plenty left as of now. Amazon sells these for $7.41 Vienna Hot dogs & Polish sausage closeout $2.99 located in cases by the meat section.
    Major remodeling still going on here.”

Zaycon

  • From SoapboxTray: “Zaycon: In regards to more fat. I commented about mine having more fat as time has gone on ordering through them and I looked at my history and I ordered 4 times. First 2/15/2012 most recent 8/28/2013 and ordered 4 times. It has been a while I guess! But sounds like a common theme to having more fat than previous, however I wanted to note that yes, I agree with Rachel and others saying that it is less fat than store brand, but I have been buying “Bare” and there is no trimming required on that. So I am getting used to that! :)”
  • SoapboxTray also asks on the Zaycon salmon: “Has anyone tried their salmon and how they liked?” I think this is the first time they have done salmon in Chicago?

  • One from eula: “I am looking for coupons for Bistro salad coupons as I have rain checks for them. Seems to be all gone. Does anyone know for sure that they are all gone?” I believe they are — anyone else have a current link?
  • On the question from the other day about bank accounts for kids, Phyllis answers: “Old Plank Trail Bank has a junior savers if it is your area. Find a bank with a junior savers program so no minimum balance required.”
  • Ella has: “One more question about the paypal. Do you link it to your bank account and its safe?”
  • Artie replies: “I’ve had Paypal linked to my bank and a credit card for years. When I use it to make a payment and there is not enough funds in my Paypal account to cover the purchase I pay the remaining balance with my credit card but you can also elect to have the funds taken out of your bank account. I choose a credit card because I earn rewards on it. Paypal is completely safe and I’ve never encountered a problem in the 10+ years I’ve had an account.”
  • Meg too: “I second that. I have paypal account for the past 2 years. I get few amazing offers throughout the year like $10 off $50 or more when you use the app in store and such. I also have my bank account attached to it. I never had issues. HTH.”

Walmart

Zaycon

Also I love that Pete’s opened in Bridgeview, between them and Shop and Save market down the street, they are both competing for the customers and are putting really great sales lately :)”

Reader requests

  • Ella asks: “I was thinking of opening a paypal account was wondering if anyone had any thoughts?” I’ve had one for many years and use it frequently.
  • SoapboxTray replies: “I have had mine for a very long time. I have only had one issue where someone setup an auto pay to withdraw from my account but I noticed and called and paypal took care of it immediately. I have been very happy with it. I have had to get new debit cards for fraud over paypal issues.”
  • And comicbob says: “I have had one for several years. Never had any problems.”
  • Concetta is wondering: “Does anyone have any leads on good pet deals? A rescue I work with is looking for food for dogs and cats and I’d like to donate as much as I can. :-)”

Sam’s Club

  • On the Sam’s Club Plus membership deal, peaches notes: “With the Sam’s Club plus membership you can get cheap prescriptions. I used to get cheap prescriptions with my regular Sam’s Club membership, but the last time I got a prescription filled, my price went from $11 to $38. They told me they had eliminated the value prescription program. They just reinstated it, but you have to be a plus member to be eligible for the discount.”

Tanga

  • On the infrared thermometer deal, Debbie suggests: “We have one (but not this one) that we use to test the water temperature of the lake.”

Zaycon

  • Kerri is wondering about Zaycon: “I ordered this for the first time. I noticed that there is quite a bit of fat that I wasn’t expecting, a lot more than buying in the store. Is this normal for Zaycon? Also one of the first pieces I pulled out had a little bone left in, which I understand they can’t be perfect but I am freezing the rest for crock pot meals and am worried I’ll find more. Anyone else found this with the chicken?”
  • SoapboxTray replies: “I have ordered 3 times. The first was a few years back and the chicken breasts were huge and not much fat and no bones. The last 2 times I ordered, at least to me the quality had gone down. They didn’t taste as tender and like you said I found bones and other parts attached to the breast. I just spent a lot more time trimming than I had the first time I ordered. I don’t think I will get chicken from them any more although I contemplate it each time I see it come up because it is better than say Jewel or store brand. I rather buy the Bare chicken and have been trying to not freeze as much. It is so much tastier and tender cooking it fresh. I am fortunate to have a great Super Target that is on my way to and from work and they mark it down frequently.”
  • And I replied: “I haven’t found any bone in mine. The last batch I got (April) was more fatty than chicken I’ve gotten from there before, but not terrible — I got a pack at Jewel last week on their sale because I was on my way home and didn’t want to thaw, though, and it needed much more trimming.”

Zaycon Foods just announced a wild sockeye salmon event for October, at $6.99/lb! I am realllly tempted by this one — Although it’s a heckuva a lot of salmon at once, lol.

$6.99/lb is an amazing price for wild sockeye salmon fillets. These do come frozen, so you can pop them right into your own freezer to eat across the year if you’re able to make that initial investment.
