  • Martha posts on Facebook: “for those looking for frozen chicken wings…Caputo’s has 4lb IQF bags for $7.49. Usually these run about $10 each at most stores. I don’t know if they are cheaper elsewhere this week, but I knew this was a great price so I bought 3 bags to put in the freezer.”


  • Susan on Facebook shares: “Gluten Free bread now at Costco in Bolingbrook! 2 loaves of GF, DF, NF, SF Super Seeded Mulit-grain bread by The Essential Baking Company. Loaves are a nice size, don’t need to be kept in the freezer and holds up well even if not toasted. Price was $7.99 for the 2-pack. Tried some this morning and really liked the taste and texture. Hope they continue to carry. Now if they would only start carrying GF frozen pizza….”
  • Tammi on TP: “Compared these to our Costco prices and Costco wins. The only advantage is having this delivered right to your front door.”

    Regarding ultra rejecting the $5 coupon. Last year the manager rejected my coupon it was a similar kraft sale . I called corp. I told th that no where in the ad does it state that you cannot use coupons with this deal . They told me the manager was wrong for refusing it . I went back later that week and used it no problem

  2. says

    I did a price match at Target for Glade priced there $7.49 CVS $5 on sale ,forgot paper ,but they confirmed price in minutes and I used a $3 coupon balance $2.24 on a GC I had . Did a scan on receipt when I got home and within minutes 51 approved my $3 savings.Too much trouble sending pictures with old camera ,much easier with scan!

  3. Linda says

    I got the $.25 overage today on Colgate, but made sure I had extra things in my cart. :)

    I also got some Alexia fries and GoGurt today at Target. I had to go to customer service to get my $.05 for my bag and then checked my receipt again and hadn’t gotten my 25% off cartwheel offer for the Alexia. Went back and got $1 back. Whatever :)

  4. Victoria says

    Learned my lesson with the B1G1 at Walgreens check different stores for prices I ended up paying $.90 for two since they marked $3.89, when I am use to paying nothing …Ohh well, lesson learned. Another reason I am not a fan of Walgreens.
