  • Jean reports on the $.99 strawberries: “My Jewel didn’t have Organic in stock so I was able to get a raincheck. I’m not sure all stores will be as amiable, but my store (Palatine on Dundee/Hicks) gave it to me.”
  • Ashley says: “Only Jewel I’ve seen with Driscoll’s strawberries is Hoffman Estates on Roselle Rd.”


  • Shandelle shares: “FYI, no Kroger & affiliates Friday Freebie this week and the message on the page indicates there will not be one again until 6/20.  Something to note if you’re buy an actual Kroger, I’m participating in multiple BzzAgent campaigns for Kroger right now and they sent me an email saying there would be a lot of promotion around the ethnic aisle in June, especially on weekends, so be sure to check that out for possible samples, coupons or other freebies. They sent me 2 coupons for free items in their new store brand of higher end ethnic products. :)”


  • Cari shares: “I found $1/1 peelies on the Ball Park Lean Angus Beef Franks.”
  • A warning from kim: “I’ve been to the Meijer in rolling meadows and melrose park and they never stack coupons. They will let you use target coupons, but you cannot use a manufacturer coupon with it. Also the last time I had an mperks deal with the same manufacturer coupon a pop menu came up on the register asking me if I wanted to use the mperk or the manufacturer coupon. They will not take both.” I have had a similar experience in Melrose Park. That isn’t what the policy says, but I have given up trying to fight it. The second point depends on the mperk. Some are manufacturer and some are store and the store ones do stack with manufacturer coupons.
  • Laura sends over: “Meijer signage for Ziplock sandwich bags deal at Meijer.”

  • From mandi in: “The sinful nail polishes are good for their price range. It requires 2 or 3 coats to cover your nail bc they go on very thin.”

    the jewel in Niles (Milwaukee ave) had lots of beautiful, organic strawberries (at 5:30 pm). I checked at the service desk to make sure they were aware of the offer, and they were. The cashier had no clue, but was quickly brought up to speed. I got three, so I was happy.

    I’m looking at the Picanova deal from Groupon to order a canvas print. I have never bought one before – anyone familiar with this company or can you recommend another site perhaps? Picanova has a 16×12 for $27 (this includes shipping!) and for the next couple of days Groupon offers an additional discount of 20%.
    Is this a good deal?? Thanks for any input you can give me. Would like to have a special Father’s Day gift this year… :)
