- A correction from dani: “kinda late at doing deals this week…been busy. anyway…big oppps…..this deal doesn’t work but my manager at cvs let it go through which was incredibly nice….the coupon is for 70 count or higher….those bottles are 60 count….. Scenarios: Online, Flintstone vitamins are $8.49 for the 60 count (prices may vary somewhat in store). So buy four at buy one get one 50% off and you’re at $25.47. Use two $5.00/2 from the 1/6 SS, and you’re at $15.47 with $6.00 back for a net cost of $9.47/4, or $2.37 a bottle. Or another idea: online, Citracal + D 120 ct is $13.99. So buy one get one 50% off and you’re at $20.99. Use the $5.00/2 from the 1/6 SS and you’re at $15.99 with $6.00 back for a net cost of $9.99/2, or $5.00 each.” She is right. But you can use four $2.00/1 from the same insert to make it work for $2.00 more.
- Sarah says: “I found Tresemme products in my CVS tonight with $1.75/1 manufacturer peelies on them. With six of these coupons and 2 $2/2 CVS manufacturer coupons that printed for me this week, I paid just over $7 with tax for 6 hair care items and I got credit for $20.01 toward the $30/$10 cash card deal.”
- A find from Liz: “CVS had the castle, spaceship, and house on clearance for $4.99 this week”
- Michelle posts on Facebook: “I had a $10 q out of the coupon machine from CVS good towards CVS probiotics item. The 15 count adult probiotics is $9.99. My coupon expires 1/22.”
- From Suzann: “Hormel has tear pads for $0.55 off any size pepperoni. Found at Kroger–made for $0.45 pepperoni.”
- A tip from Nikki: “Just a note on endorse. I used it for the first time yesterday. I went to CVS first and purchased a package of diapers and paid with two CVS ECB. ECBs covered almost the entire amount. I submitted for the 50% rebate on endorse and expected a $4.50 refund. My refund was $.32. I also went to meijer yesterday and purchased the McCormick Chili seasoning and purchased 6 seasonings and a couple of other items. I paid with some coupons including a $4OYNO. No coupons were for the seasonings. I was expecting a $1.50 rebate and received $.60. I wrote to the website. They tell me that they take all of the coupons and evenly divide them amongst all of the items on the receipt. The refund is then calculated from that amount. I suggest that you do a separate check out for just the item on endorse and pay with cash if you want to use this app.” Yes, it is after any coupons for endorse. Some receipts they can figure out, some they can’t.
- Jackie points out: “If you look on Homeland Security’s website, you’ll see the alert is actually for JAVA 10 and lower. From what I’m reading the most current version 10.9 is not effected. This is defiantly a story worth keeping watch on and a good reminder to keep your software up to date. Thank you.”
- SoapboxTray’s experience: “Java 7 has never worked right for me with Target coupons, I would never be able to print from certain computers and it came down to that. A month or so back I looked into the Java issue and removed 7 and installed 6 without automatic updates and it prints. Still a little wonky on the Target coupons, sometimes no expiration but sometimes it does… no one at Target has complained yet on those but it is hard for me to remember because they will not scan if they are expired. That I did find out.”
- Some finds from Suzanne on Facebook: “stopped at Jewel for Special K & OJ and they were in the process of resetting the store so lots of clearance including Huggies pure & natural diapers and wipes $4.78, Kashi cereal around $1, Wet wipes single boxed $.78 and Triaminic $2.39 and they were still putting up more so check your stores too!!”
- And she also found: “Tons more clearance items ,pasta $.39,olives $.25, Kleenex $.44, crystal lite and G2 $.89 tons more!!”
- Nikki shares: “Another interesting article. This one speculates what will happen next.”
- Kim points out that Special K cereal is: “$1.88 at Jewel today.” Yep, through Sunday.
- Melanie found: “Just did a quick trip to my local Jewel (20 S. Weber Road) and to my delight their books located in the Bargain Book Bin were 75% off. I picked up this Amelia Bedelia book for my 4 year-old for just $1.75. They also had other books for infant/toddlers, cook books including Sandra Lee Semi Homemade titles, some Jackie Collins & more.”
- Deanna’s take: “Mariano’s is tricky. I find most of the deals by walking the aisles, not in the ad. It’s most worthwhile to go there only on Wednesdays as they double up to 5 mqs BUT only with a $25 total. Some reliable bargains are the Krakus ham at $3.28 lb (great when there is the $1 ip to double). There are always good prices on many produce items. The Silk milk was $3.38 yesterday, so $1.38 after the doubled ip. Many Westpac frozen veggies were .57 and .64 instead of the advertised .89 price. Don’t forget the .50 coupon from 12/2? to get them for .07 to .14 each! There was a huge display of Quaker products at the front of the store, but I have no idea for how long since it is unadvertised. 42 oz oatmeal was $2.50 and oatmeal squares cereal was $2. Both of these were nice candidates for the $1/2 Quaker ip.”
- A deal idea from Laury: “On the Mperks you can add a coupon for vitamins $1.00 off. I was just there and they have the gummy vitamins on sale buy 1 get 1 free. Kids bottle of 190 are $9.99. When I rang up 2 bottles, my grand total came to $6.60. I am looking at my receipt now and I got $9.99 off plus $1 off plus $2.50 off for meijer brand health care offer. I had no idea that extra $2.50 would come off. Great deal! I went back and got 2 more and didn’t get the $1 off but still got $2.50 off so the final total for that order was $7.62.”
- Clearance from Pam C.: “I found Holiday (in shapes of stockings, trees, stars) Meijer brand pretzels on clearance for $.49.”
- A report from feelgood: “I was at the Meijer on E. Boughton Rd. in Bolingrook tonight, Little Debbie danish didn’t work there, either. They were tagged on the shelf and rang up $3.09 each, total $12.36 for four. So not even the fourth one was free. Neither the cashier nor the service desk would budge for a price adjustment, ad states ‘select varieties.’”
- Liz recommends: “I make these as chicken nuggets rather than chicken fingers. My four year old (allergic to dairy/corn amongst other things) loves them. Watch the mayo – Hellman’s contains sugar (OK for my son), while Kraft contains HFCS. Last time I bought 10lb of BSCB and made 3 cookie sheets worth. I froze on the cookie sheets and then transferred to freezer bags. Only took about an hour of prep/organization time for many meals.”
- Jean spotted: “At Target by GolfMill, found various GE lightbulbs on clearance. I bought 4 pack of 75 Watt bulbs on clearance for $3.54. Used MC of $1, exp.3/6 and Target q of $2, so paid .54. MC might have been from 1/6, not sure which one.” 1/6 SS.
- Pam C. comments: “Costco is also selling this TurboTax Deluxe (with State) for $49.99 with a $10 coupon through 1/27/13.”
- Donna K reports: “I got this one and it gave me this message via email: ‘Your recent order entitles you to a promotional credit which we have added to your account. This credit can be applied to your next qualifying purchase.’ Clicked on the link for details: The promotional credit added to my account was $35.00 to be used on the purchase of Quicken Deluxe 2013, Quicken Premier 2013, Quicken Home & Business 2013, or Quicken Essentials for Mac Purchases of the qualifying Quicken program must be made between 11/18/2012 – 4/30/2013 (expires 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time) I already use Quicken Deluxe so I may hang on to this credit and see if it goes any lower on Amazon (currently $52.94)
- A reminder from Pam A.: “double check your ibotta, mine is for the single serve pizzas so full size won’t work.” Yes, the offers will vary from person to person. I have the rising crust on mine.
- Amy on DiGiorno: “The deal is even better if you have two coupons and buy six pizzas: $5 each x 6 = $30 2 free with coupons = $20 3500 bonus points = $20-$3.50 = $16.50 $2.75 each for six pizzas”
- SoapboxTray comments: “May have been a fluke but the Mambo Sprout coupon for Arrowhead Mills printed out 6 times for me. If you likey, Whole Foods with the stack, pancake mix usually ends up being very cheap (haven’t been there in a while but I seem to remember $2.69) so 69¢. Or Jewel has the rice puffs on sale frequently for $1. something.”
