  • On the question on the gluten free Barilla pasta from the $1.00/1 coupon, comicbob says: “Gluten free pasta didn’t taste much different, but smelled very different.”
  • Erin shares: “was just on coupons.com and bic coupon is still there. also almay $5/2 reset.”


  • From Mary Ann: “Just for fun, I shopped the Lombard CVS today searching for clearance , there were no tags up except on Christmas stuff. But lots of products scanned at 75% off, like hair stuff, lotions, make up and nail polish. So scan, scan, scan.”



  • More ideas for the $1.00/2 Essential Everyday coupon from Caroline in the hot deals Facebook group: “I got lentils .99 cents and pudding (.59 cents)”
  • And Jackie comments: “Holiday papers towels were also .50/roll so free if you can find them:-)”
  • And one from Nikki: “I used the rest of my coupons on single string cheeses last night – $0.49 each, before coupon. The Jewel I went to was out of bulbs,or else I would have stocked up on those!”
  • And from Anulka: “16 oz jar of Whole Pikled Beets – 1.29 on sale, very good for salad /red onion, oil, salt, peper and beets/ or soup /cabbage, carrots, kidney beans, chicken broth, beets with juice and sour cream to serve:)”
  • A possibility from David: “8oz cans of tomato sauce were 47 cents each at County Market in Urbana. Price may be similar in Jewel.”
  • And another idea from Mary Ann: “Then I went to Jewel up the road to use the last of my $1/2 EE Qs. Sure enuf, cashier wouldn’t give me the 22 cent overage on those Qs (I bought 39 cent tomato pastes), said he was pretty sure he couldn’t do that (?). CS fixed it for me and educated him. I have yet to have a cashier give me that overage without me whipping out store policy and getting a CS involved in the transaction.”
  • From Mary T.: “Yesterday Jewel in Libertyville marked xmas food items .50 cents each. Found in back of store on large wire shelves near Pharmacy. Also had paper plates red and green marked down.”


  • From Suzann: “If any of your Kroger’s have an instore Starbucks, the Christmas blend beans and a few other types were 50% off.
    They will grind the whole beans for you.”

    In the 7-Eleven app, there’s a coupon for a free bag of Chex Chips any flavor good until 1/5. I checked two stores in the city and neither carried this new product but maybe one of the others will. Some people are reporting they also got an ecoupon for a free Milky Way ice cream bar. I didn’t have one so it must be sporadic.

    Hi Rachel, I found a great deal for a $19 eye exam- go to visionworks.com to print a coupon (I found a printed flyer in last Sunday’s Daily Herald) it’s good till 3/29/14! JC Penny also has Children’s (under age 16) eye glasses $59 till 1/35/14- print from their website. So for those of you who have a child that failed the vision test at school get your eye exam and head to JCP for glasses :)
