  • From Shandelle: “Had a couple new freebies in the 7-Eleven iPhone app yesterday. Any 20 oz bottle of TEN soda (7-Up, Dr Pepper, A&W, Sunkist) OR regular! A warning, the ecoupon would not scan for any of these products (TEN or regular) last night at 7-Eleven in the city. The clerk was nice and just gave it to me, and I’ve already submitted a ticket to 7-Eleven to fix it. The other freebie is for Pillsbury Cookies, which neither of the 2 stores by me carried. It’s a new product so it may not even be in the Chicago area yet. It’s hit or miss whether or not Chicagoland 7-Elevens carry the freebies in the app!”


  • Ashley found: There’s $1/1 peelies at Meijer for those [Tyson Grilled & Ready] strips.”


  • Julie suggests: “Check you MCM coupons and CVS mailed coupons for a possible great deal on Flintstones Vitamins or other vitamins from Bayer. I received a $5/$30 vitamin purchase coupon in the mail (2 actually, 1 good now until Feb 15, the second good after Feb 15th). I also got a $4/$20 vitamin purchase from the MCM. Flintstones are on sale BOGO 50% and the 60 count gummies and chewables are $8.49 reg price. (second one rings up at $4.24) Buy 6 @ $38.19, Use 3 $5/2 Bayer products (includes Flintstones) from the 1-5 SS (the one with the general mills coupons), $5/$30 CVS mailed coupon and $4/$20 MCM coupon and you are down to $14.19 with $6 ECB back for a net of $8.19 for 6 pack of 60 count kids vitamins, or in our house about a month and a half’s worth.” And: “Also hubby wanted to add that he is a bit ticked off at Bayer on the vitamins. We got 1 pack of chewables for our 3 year old and he discovered that his childhood favorite of the Flintstone’s car was replaced by the Great Gazoo.” LOL!

    K-Mart off of Torrence Avenue in Lansing, Illinois had a ton of Christmas merchandise available…One in particular was the JELL-O Christmas Molds for $.70 cents…

  2. Outlander says

    You know all those Corelle dishes supposedly on sale, like this one
    Well their regular price is $26.99 at Meijer every day. Those are the ones listed for $27 on Amazon and Walmart. They have a smaller bread and butter plate 6.75″ not 8.5″ salad plate. The more expensive sets are $59.99. That could be a good deal at Meijer with one of their Qs.
