I’m adding a little disclaimer to these. All of the deals below come from readers; I have not necessarily personally tried them. Comments in italics after a deal are my additions.


  • A find from Sandy: “CVS-I found Werther’s Carmel Chocolates on clearance for .78 and I used the .75 coupon in the 3/13 SS paid 3 cents each bag!”
  • One from Jennifer: “My friend at work told me about another good scenario for the $10/$20 ECB deal with Air Wick.  Buy 4 refills at $5 each and use 2 of the B1G1Free coupons in the 3/20SS, it’s right next to the $4 kit coupon.  Get all four refills for free after ECB!  We both went and did it at lunch :)”


  • From Carrie R.: “Hi all, just another example of paying attention to your JFU special pricing. I was at Dom today and found BOGO offer on Jimmy Dean Pork Sausage, price $5.97- but my JFU price was $2.40. So that worked out to $1.20 per sausage- Excellent deal!” As always, personalized JFU deals vary by card.
  • And from Renee: “Dominicks on barrington and 58 had TONS of clearance jimmy dean sausage today.  Tags were for 50% off of 5.97, but it should come off of the JFU price since they are actually scanned in.  I don’t know if they will also ring as BOGO, as the variety wasn’t the “original” (i think i saw sage, maple and spicy/.)  I wish I had that on my JFU!”

Door to door organics

  • If you bought the Living Social deal the other day, Kate mentions: “Once you order you will be given “invites” that you can send to your friends for 50% off their first order.  The 50% off works on the bigger boxes too!”


  • From Marsha: “If your readers use any of the Hasbro coupons that came out this week, they should know that they can also get free Tombstone pizza via a mail in form- Up to 5 free pizza coupons will be given per household, you have to send your original register receipt, and it must be dated between 2/25/11 and 4/30/11. The form says “Any Hasbro game” and doesn’t’ qualify it anywhere, though the pictures shown are just of Life, Yahtzee, Scrabble Races, and Monopoly,”


  • Rebecca found: “FYI, Jewel on Cicero near Bedford park has a bunch of organis stuff on clearance (Wild Harvest: crackers, cookies, some chips, etc) all for $1.”
  • Another clearance find from Janel H. (these do vary by store, but worth a look): “I went to Jewel in Peru today and they had Schick Hydro Shave Gel (the moisturizing variety) on clearance for $1.64. I used my $1 off coupons from facebook yesterday to snag these for .64 each! Great price! Almost bought them at Walgreens at buy 1 get 1 free with an individual price of $3.69, which would have cost $1.69 for 2 after two $1 off qs, so a little cheaper at Jewel. : )”
  • From Amanda: “Just wanted to add that the BOGO M&Ms at Jewel have a movie game code on the inside of each bag.  I bought 4 bags as suggested, and tossed two wrappers before realizing the game codes were there.  On the two remaining bags, one was $3 off a movie ticket and one was a free movie ticket up to $12.  Participating theaters seem to cover the majority in downtown Chicago and the north side.  Not sure if every bag is a winner or if I just got lucky…” BOGO was last week, but check your bags if you bought ’em.
  • From like2save: “The McCormick cat ended yesterday [4/10] but my store decreased the price on quite a few of the McCormick spice blends.  The new price is $1.29 so after the $1 Q they cost only 29 cents each!”

Oil change

  • From Liz: “Bettenhausen Dodge (17514 S Oak Park Avenue) in Tinley Park is offering buy one oil change at 39.95 and get 3 free.  I just went for my second oil change and was very happy that there were no additional fees – so four oil changes for $40.”


  • From Mary Ann: “The coupons in the April book are scanning as mfg coupons and count toward your item total so hand them over last, after any RR you may be planning to use.      The RR will attach to your filler item and allow the IVC to float thru.  I got this tidbit from AFC after encountering a problem last week with the hair texturizer deal.”
  • Sheri found: “Playtex tampons (18 ct.) on sale for $4.00, if you buy 2 at $8, you can use the $1 store coupon on two packages, as well as a $3 off 2 in the February AY, making it $3 for 36 count tampons.  Good deal.”
  • And from Pam: “The Skittle eggs would be free as well as the Starburst jelly beans, for those who like my daughter, LOVE Skittles.”
  • And from Sandy: “Wags-I found by the office supplies a small cardboard display box of Scotch reusable tabs for .99. If you purchased any Scotch mailing envelopes in recent sales they may have had a $1 coupon attached to the front. These coupons do not exclude Trial size therefore you can use them on for the 4 pack and get them free!”

    Hey Rachel, if I have a buy four get two free on the fuze would I really only pay for two? Jewel actually sent me this cpn about two weeks ago in the mail.

    • Linda says

      Fuze is BOGO Free at $.99! So, just have them scan 2 Fuze drinks, and then scan the coupon, and you’ve netted yourself $.01. They also may have to adjust the coupon down to $.99, but either way, you have 2 free Fuzes. The Jewel in Danada Square in Wheaton had plenty of Fuzes left. :)

      • Melinda says

        I was going to use the $1 cpns I have also to get them for free (have about ten of these) but I was wondering about this other cpn I have Buy 4 Get 2 Free at this point would I end up paying for two? Thanks

          If you also have 10 of the $1.00 coupons, here’s what you can do:

          Buy 24. Get 20 free with 10 $1.00/2. Get 2 free with your buy 4 get 2 free. Get the last two free cause of the BOGO. = 24 free.

          (I just did something similar today. I had four $1.00/2, so bought 12. Got eight free with the $1.00/2. Got two free with the buy 4 get 2 coupon. Got the last two free on the BOGO sale = 12 free.)

    On the bogo “movie” m&ms that Amanda found at Jewel—they were bogo (still) for $1, in Indiana (Munster), by check-out. I bought two bags for $1 and won $3 off one ticket. Thanks Amanda! :)
    (Although, it takes a lot of ink—so you’ll have to decide if it’s worth $3…)
