  • Jennifer posts on Facebook: “Do you remember Jingit? Well, they have coupons now, just like Ibotta and Checkout 51, where you scan your receipt. Although the scanning takes FOREVER, they have a lot of generic coupons on there, like glass cleaner, sugar, chicken nuggets, wings, meatballs, corn dogs, grape jelly, etc.” Note — to cash out you have to pay a fee to get a Jingit Visa debit card, which they then will reload as you earn.

Household tips

  • One from CHRISTINE: “A handy man/fix it guy told us to try garage door opener light bulbs. He said they were more expensive, but they will endure the bouncing and vibrating of a ceiling. We did this in our basement and have not had to replace them for the last 5 months. My husband about died when he saw how expensive they were, but we have not had to replace them yet. That is highly unusual for us!”


  • Krystle comments: “Found the same [Challenge butter] coupon on Jewel’s website (their version of! There are also a few EE products coupons available to print.”

Loyalty programs



  • On the Hawaiian Punch Aloha Morning, Soapbox Tray says: “If you are a Mariano’s shopper these usually end up free or close to it with these $1. Qs! On Double Daze Wednesdays that is!”

  • And karen shares: “I bought 4 of the NIvea at Meijer. Used 2 $5/2 mc, 4 $1/1 target c, brought cost down to $6. Then I get $5 rewards on MPerks for spending $20 on beauty/cosmetics products. End result 4 large Nivea for $1. Oswego Meijer takes target c. no problem….”
  • Outlander says: “If you still have $0.75/2 PB square Snickers Qs from a week or two ago (might still be available), they are on sale at Meijer for 50 cents. There is also one $0.75/2 Q on Mperks. So you get 2 for $0.25!”

Reader requests

  • From Outlander: “Does anyone know of a good deal [to use the $5.00/2 coupons on Nivea lotion]? At Meijer the big ones were on sale $5 (reg $6.19), but that’s still pricy. Thanks.” There are a couple of Meijer options above, anything else other than free tiny ones at Target?


  • A heads up from Tamara on the previous Friday Reese’s egg freebie: “Because they were BOGO, SavingStar only gave me $.38 as opposed to $.74. Boooo. Oh well, at least we’re not talking huge amounts here! Plus, I really like them anyway. :)” I bought mine at CVS when they were $.75 B2G1, and got $.50. At least they are consistent!


  • From Kari O.: “For those with little boys (or action figure loving girls) the Marvel Titans figures have a 10% off Cartwheel and a $2/1 on At Target they are $9.99, $8.99 after Cartwheel and $6.99 after coupon. Except Hulk who is bigger and starts at $11.99. This a pretty good deal for the new Marvel Avengers figures. They also feature 10% off sale on select Captain America toys, plus Cartwheel plus manufacturer printable coupons. My kiddo is too young for those select toys, but he seems to love the 12″ Titan figures.”

    I did the action figures at target earlier and price matched 2,65 for the Star Wars figure and 599 for the hulk then I used coupons and cartwheel came out to 4.94 for both Easter basket gifts

  2. Shandelle says

    Aquafina Flavorsplash is 2/$1 at Jewel thru 4/22. If you still have any of the BOGO coupons from the SS 1/26, this makes them $.25 each, which is the best price I have seen so far. They are regular price $.78 at Walmart, too.

    So is this Jingit app worth it? I just downloaded it on my iphone and signed up. I’ve heard virtually nothing about it on any coupon blogs, which makes me think it’s one that’s really difficult to earn anything. It looks like it’s $3 to get the Visa card for them to actually pay you but you have to earn that through money made using the app, so not really a deal breaker for me I guess. I tried to google for reviews and didn’t find much other than a few random blogs saying it wasn’t the best for earning money. But maybe with the coupons/offers it’s a little easier. It looked like the only stores it was offering me was Target, Walmart and Food4Less. Looks like you check in with the app so is it similar to Shopkick? Anyone been successfully using this to say if it’s really worth it? I’m all for free money, even if it accrues and takes a while (a la Checkout 51).

    Just got an e-mail that they’re going to credit me for the full amount of the Reese’s egg and it was the way the store transmitted the data to them. Woo hoo!
