Gift Cards

  • Liz says, “I think Advanced also has a buy $100 get $25 gift card deal on right now.” Use your gift card today with a coupon code

Heads Up

  • Denise sent this comment on Photo calendar $7.99 shipped,”Do NOT use printer pix. I got a notice 2 weeks ago my order was shipped with my Christmas cards. Then got notice that there was a glitch and they won’t be available due to compromise to their computers. I went on their website and almost all of the comments had problems with their orders not being filled after payment. They want me to take a gift card.”

Online Shopping

  • Susan comments on the Cut the cord with today-only sale on TV Antenna sale, “We have the antenna pictured.  Basically I was afraid of my husband falling off the roof installing an outside antenna.  We tried several different indoor antennas that were dust collectors.  Then I saw this at Costco a couple years ago.  We get all the channels except channel 2 with a very clear picture.  When you see it you wonder how it could ever work, but it does!

Reader Requests

  • Brandy replies to a Pinecone question, “Never been offered that with $300 with Pinecone! I do love their consistent $3 though!”
  • Liz replies, “yes the $300 entails me to do some shopping first…its weird because its from the women who usually sends the emails but the email has a slightly different look so thats why I am leary”
  • Catherine has a suggestion,”You can email her at the Pinecone website to be sure.  I have had to contact them when I messed up a survey and she responded back.  If you are worried don’t link thru that email, just go to the website directly.  BTW, one time I did get a $20 or $25 incentive for doing an online focus group type thing.”
  • So does Peaches,”I also post over at Survey Police Forum, which I highly recommend, and I just asked about the $300 Pinecone survey, and one of the administrators just said that she can almost guarantee that it is fake.  She said a similar email was going around a few months ago.  She gave the link to the email when she responded to my post.  She is interested if yours is the same or a different email.  Here is the link to survey police.
  • Liz has additional information, “I emailed pinecone last night and I got a response it’s a scam someone has been was similar colors..look and came from the same person who usually sends..decieving..except that it seemed too easy..”

Red Box Code

  • Kari sent a free Red Box code, “Free Redbox code that expires 12/22…. Text DNILSEN to 727272″


  • Letsshop comments on Cheap Nivea lotion at Target through 12/27, “Did this last week ,guess I forgot to mention ,anyway they also have some pump bottles with extra  free 25% more free (: “

Here are the best Chicago Meijer deals and coupon matchups (for the Meijer Thursday market ads) I see for the week of 12/21/14 – 12/27/14. Special Sunday ads this week for Thursday market stores, one going all week and one just through Wed. Meijer is closed on Christmas and open Christmas Eve til 7PM.

(Note: Smaller neighborhood grocery Chicago Meijers such as Niles, Melrose Park, Berwyn, and Orland Park, go off different and more localized ads, so some of your deals may differ from those shown here. Please verify against your own ad. Other states, Northwest Indiana, and downstate IL are on the Sunday-Thursday ad schedule, so sales there start the Sunday before the Thursday they start in Chicagoland in IL.)
