Dollar Tree

Fresh Thyme

  • Erika emails: “Just a heads up for Fresh Thyme fans, but I was shopping at the one in Mt. Prospect (love the 2x ad Wednesdays) and they put a little coupon book in my bag with over 10 coupons for natural and organic products.”


  • Betty shares: “I was wondering around the liquor section and found two things. 1) a manufacturer coupon for 25$ off of groceries if you purchase 6 bottles of Smirnoff (750 ml or larger) includes others. 2) a manufacturer rebate for $35 dollars off 6 bottles. So $60 off 6 bottles of Smirnoff. It was price (with 10% off for buying 6 or more) $10.79 a bottle. So after everything considered just 79 cents a bottle plus tax. I believe these only over lap July 1- through July 5. Rebate ends July 5th. Didn’t really need liquor but for 79 cents got some vanilla vodka. HTH”
  • For those who got the $2.00/1 EE bath tissue coupon, Dolores reports: “I have brought the essential 12 double rolls for 4.99 .”
  • And feelgood adds: “Just got back from Jewel. There is an EE 1000-sheet single roll, it’s $0.99 ! Bought the EE roll and a package of $3.50 Dietz & Watson Beef franks for the overage. Used $2.00 coupons on each, both scanned the full value off. Total was $0.49 + $0.14 tax, total $0.63 :-)”
  • David found an even lower price on the Deitz & Watson franks: “Stickney Jewel – priced 5.49 B1G1 = $1.49 for 2 with coupons. Never ate before. We’ll see. All the packages had a July 7 expire date though.”
  • A find from Outlander: “At Jewel, look for clearance Starbucks Spring blend bagged coffee for $2.25 and use those $2/2 Qs to get 2 for $1.25 each. I bought 10, and there’s still at least 20 left. They have stars on them too. Is there still anything going on where you submit and get GC with purchase?”

Loyalty programs

  • Shandelle shares: “I got an email from Stouffer’s yesterday that they’re ending their points rewards program December 31, 2014. Got a similar email from Lean Cuisine Delicious Rewards today also, ending their program at the end of the year. Both said you can continue earning points and redeeming until then but just a heads up.”
  • Maria says: “Just entered NUTRITIONINABOWL on Kellogg’s Family Rewards for 50 points. (Found this on


  • April is wondering: “Which store carries that Superstars yogurts? I was in Bloomingdale store and a person who stocks the shelves told me that they don’t carry that product :(” Berwyn carries it but they were out yesterday!
  • But Kari O. shares: “mPerks just texted me that they’re extending the freebie offers to get more products to the stores. They’ve had A LOT of complaints and some stores have been substituting items, which defeats the purpose.” Look at that, mine expire 7/12 now!

Online deals

  • From Kari O.: “Tilly’s online is having a 50% off Clearance prices sale for the 4th of July. I just ordered some men’s hoodies for $12.49 as super early Christmas Presents. (And maybe some cute women’s shirts for $3.99 for me now….)…Oh, and if you use FREESHIPME you’ll get free shipping too.”
  • A heads up from DD on 4Checks: “Great deal but be careful as you are checking out–it asked if I wanted an identity theft protection for $10.95 and when I clicked on “no thanks” it added a BASIC protection for $4.95, which was not even an option or mentioned on the previous screen.  I had to change the drop down bar and click “no thanks” 3 separate times to get the total down to what it was supposed to be. Look at your subtotal and charges VERY carefully”


  • Artie emails: “IHOP panckes for 56 cents on Tuesday, July 8 ‘The 56-cent deal for a short stack of buttermilk pancakes is good 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. at participating locations. As always with these sorts of deals,I recommend calling ahead to verify your restaurant is honoring the deal. No coupon required. Just ask your server.'”


  • Angela comments: “I just purchased 16 [notebooks] (didn’t really need 24). 16 brought me over the $25 min. to get the discount, plus I have free shipping because I’m a rewards member. Total shipped w/tax came to under $3.00.”
  • Callie found, in addition to the other staples school supplies deals: “Composition notebooks are $0.50 also!!”
  • Charlotte says: “These deals are also available in store, for the most part. The Bolingbrook store does not have any of the items tagged at this price, but they did ring up correctly, except the glue sticks. The cashier had no issues changing the price to the online price once I looked it up on my phone. My advice is to write down the prices from online, before you head to the store.”


  • Something to look for from Sue: “Picked up the Oxiclean Dishwasher Detergent at Target today, and found TMF tags on the bottles. Counting in my stamp to mail it in, and what I paid at the store, all four containers ended up being free!”
  • Ashley has something to look for if you are buying Oreos: “There’s peelies on many of the Oreos for save $1 when you buy one and any size milk”
  • Kelly posts on Facebook: “Check Cartwheel 10% local brand milk offer and a 5% MP as well as ibotta :)”

    Ok I know I goofed last week with the Orville Reddenbacher coupon usage at Ultra. BUT if you still have the $1/1 6 pack blinkie, they are one sale through 7/29 for $2.99 @ Jewel. You can see the sale price in Jewels July big Book of Savings, in case there is a huge obnoxious red sign blocking the price tag! So $0.99 for the normal size 3 ct box.
