Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.
- From Shandelle: “Anyone managed to find the GUM 15 ct soft picks that are 100% back on Saving Star? I checked a couple CVS stores and they only have 8 ct and then 40 ct and get larger from there. I checked the travel section, too, with no luck. Also.. they have the Starbucks iced coffee drinks for $1.50 each right now. No coupons for those that I know of, but $1 back from Saving Star makes one only $.50. Since it’s so hot out and I walked to the store, I enjoyed an iced vanilla one on my way home. ”
- Something to check for from Nicole C.: “I have a Dom’s a J4U price loaded for .95 cents a box [for Barilla pasta]!” Good use of the new $1.00/2.
- A last minute deal tonight only deal I noticed: “SO Starbucks…no coupons but there is something going on here, I think. $6.49 with IAC at Dom’s through today. Through October something, you get a cat for $5 off a Starbucks card wyb 2. And per the ad in the SS if you enter 4 codes, you get a $10 card and special treats when you enter 4 codes. So if you did two transactions of two, you’d pay $26 and get $20 back in Starbucks money. You’d have to also spend another $20 for the cards because I think the smallest one is $15. So spend $46 and end up with 4 bags of coffee and $40 on Starbucks cards. Am I missing something? I need 5 stars soon to keep gold so I may just do it. I also have 2 $1.50/1 peelies but that is all coupon-wise. Make a printable appear, lol!” And of course Rachel did, in fact, make a printable appear with this $2.00/2. And I ran out to do it tonight and it worked!
- Nicole C. also noticed: “Thank you for sharing this [$1.00/1 coupon], Rachel. Starting tomorrow, Dominick’s has 16 oz packages of Perdue ground turkey on sale for $2.99.”
- Shandelle found: “McCormick Recipe Ready pouches are $1.79 at Jewel through 9/22.. with the $2 printable from coupons.com they are free with a little overage. I just got 4 at Jewel last night.” She adds: “Should be fine at Jewel.. they have to manually enter it anyway because of the overage. It scans fine otherwise, as Jewel’s system reduced it to $1.79 and I asked my cashier to void that and manually enter the $2 so I got the full value. She asked customer service because she wasn’t sure and finally they accepted it no questions asked. The coupon says it’s for “gourmet’ and the package says gourmet on it, if they even argue over it with you.” If you aren’t finding the coupon, try 33033 or 33317, then reload the page.
- Sarah shares: “If you are starting holiday shopping early or just want to save on eating out, there is a deal over at Meijer. Clip the $10 off $50 in gift cards for Red Lobster, Olive Garden, or Longhorn Steakhouse. This Friday/Saturday Meijer is having a 2 day sale with $5 off your total purchase of $50 or $10 off your total purchase of $100 to help sweeten the deal. So buy $50 in gift cards and some groceries and pay about $45.”
- I noticed: “[Barilla pasta] is on the 10/$10, get the 11th free at Meijer starting Thursday.” Another use for the new $1.00/2.
- Allison comments: “I read somewhere yesterday that there is also a $15 statement reward through Amex. I don’t have an Amex card so I didn’t pay much attention to it, but it may be worth looking into for those who have one & are interested in the $30/$75. $45/$75 at Maggiano’s would make for a great dinner out!”
- Possible details from susan: “I could be wrong, but I think you’d have to spend $105. The Amex credit will only come off if the amount put on the Amex is $75.”
- Sara adds: “Yes, I think you;re correct as you would need to have $75 charged to your Amex. If anyone is interested, here are the instructions on how to sync your Amex card to your twitter and/or Facebook accts. Please note: You need to add each offer to your acct. Best thing to do is to keep an eye on their Twitter or Facebook acct for new offers to be posted.”
- An important question from kim p: “Doe’s anyone here know how expensive it is there? DH won a $25.00 gift card, so with this coupon it would be awesome to eat there. No prices on their menu online…so just kind of wanted to figure out if it fits in our budget before the coupon expires. Average price say of a pasta meal??? Thanks in advance” I haven’t been there in a long time and the site has no prices. Anyone?
- From Samantha: “I have a reader request -Last fall someone suggested apple picking at a small orchard -you could drive into it -really good apples and cheap -then down the road another place sold apple cider (only last year didn’t have any due to weather) and cider donuts. It wasn’t a big fancy place but now I can’t remember the name and tried looking thru old posts. Any help appreciated.”
- Michelle answers: “Look under readers deals 10/5/12 or 10/6/12. It is under fall activities and pumpkins. I hope this helps.”
- Deb suggests: “Apple orchards – Jonomac Orchard in Malta. Has lots of fun activities on the weekends, plus a pumpkin patch, corn maze, bakery, and a store. Honey Hill Orchard in Waterman has pick-your-own apples and berries. It also has a pumpkin patch, bakery, and a small store/diner (they also sell their own honey – good for allergies!).”
- Kitty shares: “Got a postcard in the mail today from CVS offering 10 credits ($5 EB) to Pharmacy Rewards members who get a flu shot there. I know that Dominicks is offering some kind of cash off coupon to get flu shots there. Does anyone know of any incentives being offered by other stores? Would be good to know where the best deal is.”
- Benita asks: “Does anyone know of any coupon codes/deals for Disney on Ice? I would prefer a weekend show rather than weekdays. Thanks!”
- One from Mike: “Now, what about a recommendation for an Internet Service Provider? I’ve been using AT&T for a while – not as part of a bundle – but there’s got to be a better/cheaper option. Recommendations???”
- An idea for cheap crescents from boce: “lay out the crescents in a circle. Top with broccoli, diced ham, and shredded cheese. Roll then up to make a ring. Sprinkle with parnesan. Bake until golden brown. One of my favorites, but dh hates. Lol.”
- Yvette shares another: “Whenever I have Crescent rolls in the house I always end up making one of my childhood comfort foods. My mom called them Doughboys, and I think she got the recipe from Pillsbury years ago so it is probably still around somewhere. It’s a very simple and basic recipe that can be adapted to everyone’s tastes. Mom always made a meat filling that consisted of ground beef, shredded cheese and just enough sour cream to hold it all together. I frequently will add mushrooms and/or onions to that filling, or will go completely different and use chicken, salsa, cheese and sour cream. The most complicated part is that you do not separate the dough into triangles. Leave two triangles together and pinch the seams so that you have a solid rectangle, then flatten it out just a little. Put the filling along the middle of the dough and then close it up like a calzone. Bake it according to the directions for the crescent rolls, and voila! Homemade hotpockets! If you want to be fancy, brush it with egg whites before baking and sprinkle a little chopped garlic or shredded cheese on top.”
- Beth says: “You can stack a Target store coupon for $1 off 2 Always or Tampax. Coupon was included in the Target sheet in the 9/1 Tribune. There is also a Cartwheel offer, but I think the size restrictions won’t work with this deal.” Oh, I didn’t get it and Rachel didn’t mention in notes so I assumed we didn’t get it in Chicagoland. Good to know some may have it around here!
- For Colgate mouthwash, natalie0920 says: “There’s also a possible deal at Target. It’s B3G1 free on the 8-8.4 oz mouthwashes, and they are priced 2.99. Use 3 $2/1 from the 9/8 SS. Look for the TRY ME FREE rebate tags on some bottle, you can get back up to 3.99. If your Target will let you use a MQ on a free item, it’s a MM but YMMV.”
- Cari’s deal: “Just stocked up on dog food at Target. Purina dog chow is $12.99, buy 2 get $5 gift card. I bought 4, used the 2-$5/2 Target coupon from last weeks paper and 4- $1/1 from 8/25 RP. Loaded 5% off on my cartwheel. $12.99 x 4=$51.98 -$2.60 (5% from cartwheel program) -4 $1/1 coupons -2 $5/2 coupons =$35.36 and got back $10 in Target Gift cards =$25.36 or $6.34 for each 20 lb bag”
