You have the choice of either free shipping or they will send you the 2014 cards right away. I chose to get the 2014 cards. www.alacardchicago.com/buy_online.html I bought the cards last year when you posted a Living Social deal and found I liked them much more than the Entertainment Book. Good way to discover some restaurants.”

  • And Jane says: “I called my store and they said it was from between 12:40- 1:40 PM for the deal. I bet your store will offer this as well.”
  • Then she follows up: “…and called another store near me and they said the time was 12 noon to 1:40PM. Also, the guy said you could pick between hand tossed or thin. I expect a huge line if people hear about this!” So definitely check with your store to confirm participation and time!

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Aldi

  • Something to look for from Caroline in Hot Deals: “Keep a look out at Aldi I found [Ghirardelli brownie mix] for .99 a box recently.”

Amazon

  • Found by grandma g, the Starbucks Refreshers deal has returned: “$14.11 ($0.10 / Fluid Ounce) after 20% discount But then there was a coupon, I think 25% off, to bring it down to only $9.70 for 12. I like these for a nice little treat, at .83 each seems like a good deal.”

Coupons

  • On the Curad PDF, Jane wonders: “Do you have to print the whole page of coupons?”
  • Kari O. replies: “Yes, you probably should. At least on my computer if you tried to take a screenshot of the PDF there are little black lines that show up on the image that don’t print out on the paper. So, it becomes very apparent to the manufacturer than you copied the image and didn’t just print the whole page.”

Food 4 Less

  • Shandelle shares: “Just got an email from Saving Star stating that Food 4 Less will be a supported store as of October 1st. I can’t remember if I saw a post about it or not, but they announced a week or so ago that Kroger and all their affiliate stores won’t do store cards for credit anymore and we will have to start scanning the receipts manually into the app like with all the other non loyalty card stores.”

Staples

  • On the Maxwell House coffee, Laura on Facebook says: “You can place more than one order, its limited to two per order!”

Restaurants

  • Brandy shares: “Also, bought McDonald’s Halloween $1 booklets with 3x of each: apple slices, small juice or milk, gogurt, hamburger (total 12 coupons). Only one per person, under 12yo. Burger King did not have Halloween booklets but BK Scholars booklets which are also $1 and 3x value fries or onion rings & 3x ice cream cone (total 6 coupons). One per person per visit BUT no age limit because not for kids..everyone! Looks like I will be hitting up McD for the burger and going across the street for the fries via drive thru. Hah!”

Target

  • Brandy reports: “Saw backpacks on 70% off clearance at Diehl Target in Warrenville yesterday. Tons. “

Walgreens

  • A Colgate report from LovinSavin: “[The $3 RR wyb one] just worked for me at 12:44 pm on Max Fresh Intense with Whitening.”

Whole Foods

  • A question from peaches: “Does anybody know if the Imagine soup is still on sale at Whole Foods because I did not see any of it marked at 2/$5. BTW when I was at the Whole Foods in downtown Evanston today, there was actually an employee at the front entrance to the store handing out Whole Deal coupon books. Of course probably 90% of the customers turned her down..”

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Aldi

  • Lisa shares: “We bought the mums at our store, they are beautiful and HUGE! I know $11.99 may seem high but these are way larger than anywhere else I have seen them. I did notice there were 2 sizes of mums at mine but both ringing at the same price so try and look for the larger ones.”

Online deals

  • A heads up from crystal on the XBox live deal: “I tried purchasing it thru my phone app & it would not apply the discount code. I logged into a PC & I purchased thru there & it did take the 10FORU code.”

Reader requests

  • Tram in Hot Deals is wondering: “Best place to buy pumpkins?”
  • Kristen asks in Hot Deals: “I am starting the Christmas search. I am looking for mens jeans long 34x 38 length. So let me know any sales on jeans for giants! Thanks”
  • And grandma g is wondering: “About the [Jewel] in-ad-prescription coupon, I was excited to finally get a new prescription that I could get filled and get my $25 gift card, (though not excited about needing an antibiotic). On presenting the coupon the pharmacist told me that if you had Medicare D, or a state or federal insurance you could not use it:( He said it had always been that way but in the past they could just ‘override’ it, but now it’s being closely watched. So no gift card for seniors, unless you have some other type of insurance.. It sounds like it’s all stores, or at least all Jewels, not just this one. Anyone else run into this?” I think it is across the board, but I am not positive.

Target

  • SoapboxTray reports: “Target had Gold N’ Plump chicken sausage for $2.99 a pack last week, and a bunch were marked with $1. off manager special coupons, and I also used this: www.goldnplump.com/coupons-and-offers.cfm have to sign up, $1. off any 1 package of Gold n’ Plump ground chicken or chicken sausage. I had printed these a few weeks ago and I was able to print 2 more today. 99¢ a pack. Keep an eye out, I stalk the meat section on my way in to work and have found fabulous deals. Also, someone asked about marking down meats a month or so ago, Mundelein Super Target does his in the morning before shoppers arrive so best time for them is when store opens at 8am. I haven’t been in this week to see if they are still 2.99 a pack btw.”

Ultra Foods

  • Pam says: “If anyone has the prev available $1.50 IP off Breyer, Klondike q, use this week @ Ultra for $1.38 Breyers ice cream. Yum!”

More ALDI organizing

aldi-organizing

This post is inspired in part by Trish’s Upright Drawer Organization and other tips in last week’s Frugal Homemade. Like Trish, we also have no coat closet in our house. Our inside garage door opens into the laundry room, which has no convenient place to store shoes and coats. That room then passes through into a former long narrow bedroom / now computer, drum, miscellaneous walkway room, which does have a little bench and a couple of hooks and cubbies for hats, gloves, etc. — but nowhere near enough storage for four people, so things like shoes and backpacks tend to end up all over the floor.

So today I used my $5/$30 coupon that came in the mail for the remodeled Villa Park location only. In addition to my little ALDI herbs, and a few miscellaneous food items ($.69 avocados…), I picked up the shoe rack and over the door hooks that are on sale this week for $8.99 and $6.99 respectively. Now, part of the old bedroom closet is a jury-rigged coat closet — ta-da! I hooked them over the closet rod, which is metal and pretty strong, so hopefully it will hold up.

My original plan for the over-the-door hooks was to use them on the inside of the door coming in from the garage, but that was too wide for it to hook over — I think this worked out even better. Now the backpacks live on the old couple of hooks, jackets are face out in the old closet, and extra shoes are on the rack. The shoe rack, by the way? Not as easy to put together as they make it appear. Allen wrench warning! lol

The $1.99 ALDI herbs are really nice!

aldi-herbs

I bought three of the little $1.99 ALDI herbs this morning and stuck them in my south facing office window! We’ll see how they do over the winter, but they seem in very good condition and are in little plastic pots inside the decorative ones so you get the drainage. Now, to keep the darn cat away from them…
