aldi-cvs

I was more successful shopping today at CVS and ALDI — can’t pass up a $.69 avocado week! At CVS, I did the Blue Diamond almonds deal. They were BOGO at $4.79 at my store, so net $2.37 for both after coupon, tax, and cash back. At ALDI I spent $7.34 on 8 avocados and a 3 lb bag of apples, with $.25 back from Checkout 51 for apples.

Reader requests

  • One from Charlotte on Facebook: “Anyone have any suggestions for duct cleaners? We had a company out nearly 5 years ago, and they broke our furnace, so we’re a bit leery.”

Sports gear

Target

  • Jane puts together a Starbucks deal with the gift card rebate link SoapboxTray shared earlier: “Thanks for this link. I bought 3 bags of Starbucks coffee and 1 Via. Used $2/1, $2/2 (for the bags), and $1/1 Via. Got the $10 Starbucks g.c. at checkout and then followed your link and will receive the $5 g.c. in 3-4 weeks via email. So, 3 x 6.99= $21 + $5.99 = $27 – 5 (Qs) – 10 (g.c.) – 5 (g.c.) = $7 for all four items! :)))) I wish the $10 g.c. was for Target, rather than Starbucks, but still—great deal.”

Walmart

  • Suzann comments: “The Kingsford charcoal deal is an excellent value – I did these last year and brought home 4 double packs. Kingsford Is a brand that puts out no coupons. This is1990’s pricing and amazingly this is the price I paid last year. Not so many years ago these bags were 20lbs.”

Costco

  • Do you agree with my list of good buys at Costco? Read everyone’s comments on this post for additional ideas.

Coupons

  • If you’re having trouble printing the Werther’s coupon, Valentina S. suggests: “You have to allow pop-ups in the browser. I tried it first, and was prompted to install RevTrax coupon printer which I already had. Then I allowed pop-ups and printed the coupons. HTH.”

CVS

  • If you’re looking for SC Johnson coupons for the cleaning products deal, Connie comments that: “Better Homes and Gardens usually has the SC Johnson inserts.”

Heads up

  • On the Menards patio furniture deal, Outlander warns: “Nikki, just be careful with those rocker swivel chairs. I hate them. My husband sat on one a couple of years ago, and it broke backwards, and he tried to catch himself in the fall. Well that damaged some nerve in his shoulder, now he’s been going to doctors and been in pain all this time. And it can’t be fixed… I mean his shoulder, not the chair. :)”
  • And on the Cents of Style sale leggings today, Luscoupons says that: “I’ve ordered leggings from this company and the fit runs short…(I’m 5’7″). I think that’s why they show the models wearing boots with them.”

Jewel

jewelnaper1

  • Martha shares on Facebook that: “I don’t think I have seen any mention of this on your site, and unfortunately my daughter decided to cut up the one that was sent to my house before I even had a chance to look at it, but the jewel at 75th and Naper held their grand reopening this weekend. I didn’t make it there until last night after all the fanfare was over, but I thought I would share the ad with you now that I have a good copy. Not sure how all of the items compare with the regular prices this week, but there are certainly a few things that are worth a stop.

jewelnaper2

  • Brandy comments: “Fresh Express 30 Day Salad Swap gives 50 coupons for the rest of the year if you submit 15 bag codes at once. I know this isn’t a new thing (as I did this last March and just finished my last $2/2 coupon). I saved all year and submitted another 15 codes for more coupons for this year. I was nervous it wouldn’t let me use the same account, so I used a different email address. I got two bags of FE salad at Jewel for the $.99 sale on spinach for free. Even if I can’t use, I steam down a bit, throw in my Blendtec and freeze in ice cube trays for addition to spaghetti sauce for my picky eaters. Can’t taste it and it’s so pureed that you can’t even really see it!”

Reader requests

  • On the Kasperky Anti-Virus rebate deal, letsshop asks: “Has anyone ever used this brand before ?I have been using Nortons 360 for the last 10 years (: generally free after rebate !not seeing it around on sale anywhere ! And really haven’t ever had a problems while using it for protection and now have only 30 days to go !”
  • Nora replies: “I’ve used Kaspersky for years and really love it.”

Restaurants

  • Judy emailed a heads up for the Pop’s deals posted yesterday: “Went over to the Pops in Elmhurst for their celebration letsshop sent over to you and was in Sunday’s letter.. Monday was supposed to be $2 beef sandwiches. The order taker said that you needed a coupon which they had passed out last week or could be on our phone. So no $2 beef sandwiches for us. You might alert your readers that at least at this location the deals are not available without their coupon.”
  • And feelgood found: “For the Pop’s $2 anniversary specials this week, you can also go to their website, download the offers to your phone or print them, and present them when ordering.”
  • On today’s free small cone at Dairy Queen, Maureen points out: “Just an FYI, they are asking for a donation to Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.”
  • Pam replies: “mine let you pick any flavor, and could get it dipped or with sprinkles. They asked for a donation as well, but made it clear it was optional.”

Heads up

  • On today’s free code, April found: “The code works online only. You have to make a reservation.”
  • On the corned beef at Jewel, from Karen: “According to my Jewel : The Harrington’s corned beef is priced at $5 something a pound. This price already reflects the 25% off regular retail price of $7 something a pound. The Ruben corned beef shown in the ad is a different product priced at $2.50 and $3.50 a pound. The ad is very very misleading” It is! They got me, sorry.

Jewel

jewelclearance

  • Some clearance finds to be on the lookout for, from Maureen: “Great clearance finds at the 95th/59th Jewel in Naperville. These OxiClean detergents were marked down to $2.99. Used five $2 MQs to get them for $.99 each. Also found Windex marked at $1.74, used the $1 printable to get it for $.74 and will submit for the $1 from Checkout 51. Also look for 150 oz.

Eurofresh

  • feelgood points out that: “The Eurofresh Market in Tinley Park runs the same weekly ad as Butera (they’re owned by Butera). So you can get your free Nutella there, or price match their ad at one of the nearby Walmarts.” The Butera $1.99 Nutella sale runs through today 3/10.

GFS Marketplace

  • A find from MamaHan: “I was at the Schaumburg GFS on Golf Road this afternoon, and they have 10 pound chub packs of 81% lean ground beef. It’s dated 3/11/15, and marked down to just $15.00. If you have the freezer space for it, you might want to venture over to the store. There were at least 8 of them there as of 3:30.”

Jewel

  • On the $1.00 Fisher Nut Exactly Snack Bites coupon, Jane found: “This just also popped up on my snap offers today as well! $1 back on any 5 oz. bag. It does not look like there is a limit and I do not think this is a special offer for me either. Anyone check to get a price for these at Jewel yet?”
  • And a question from kc: “At Shopmium, there is a promo for the Noosa yogurt 40% off if you buy 3. Also another for buy one Noosa get $1.00. I submit my Jewel receipt from the buy 4 get 2 free deal, and BOTH get rejected! Reason? “This offer cannot be combined with other special offers. You already benefited from discounts on this product” Felt kinda bummed. Anyone have the same problem?”

Well I ran out of those stock up bags just about a month ago and so I splurged In addition to what you have above, if you can find it, there is a Clorox and Glad coupon book Mundelein Super Target had by the customer service desk. In it, $2.50 off 2 Glad bags 20 ct. or larger. I will email you a pick of this. It says CLEAN HOME on the front.”

aldifruit

Did you ever have one of those mornings where everything takes 10x longer than it should? The ALDI portion of mine was at least mercifully quick, though. :) The above came to $9.99 — I have another one of those pork roasts from when they were cheap at Jewel a couple of weeks ago, so am thinking I’ll make another batch of carnitas because they were soooo good the first time around.

ALDI

  • Something to look for from SoapboxTray: “Fox Lake Aldi had 40oz Peanut Butter Chunky for $1.99 on clearance. There were about 10 of them there.”

Caputo’s

  • From Valentina S.: “1 lb. strawberries were $1.29 at Downers Grove Caputo’s and they were Driscoll’s. It has been a while since I got strawberries for $0.29 after $1/1 survey coupon.”

Daily deals

  • On the Thermos insulated lunch cooler, from TracyS: “I have that lunch bag! My kids use drink thermoses and they fit well in here. Only caveat is the square containers I often use for main dishes needs to be put in sideways. Front zipper keeps utensils clean.”

Jewel

  • Liz found one: “for the noosa yogurt there is also a 20/30/40% off if you buy 3 or more. I wonder if you get 4 with 2 free if it will count of buying 3–this is on shopmium
  • Tamara says noosa is: “some of the best yogurt I’ve ever had!”
  • On not using MyMixx and paper coupons together, Tamara points out when the digital ones can be useful: “However, you can use a mixx (hehe) of both. I used two printables and a MyMixx $1/2 for the P3 deal (buy 6, save $3). I have access to two computers, but figured since I only needed 3, I could save some ink and paper on the 3rd coupon.”

Pete’s Fresh Market

Restaurants

  • Tamara found: “An interesting Jimmy John’s side voucher claim form. This is the verbiage: “I purchased at least one sandwich identified on a Jimmy John’s menu as containing alfalfa sprouts, but which in fact did not contain alfalfa sprouts, between February 1, 2012 and February 7, 2015.” My voucher was received in less than an hour and is good until May 12.”

  • If you’re near the Ultra Foods in Downers Grove, you may want to stop by today. Chris comments on Facebook that she picked up the above “Markdown chicken at Ultra, all for $19!” And Nikki comments: “I went to the Downers store today. They had lots of Perdue chicken clearanced. They had whole fryers, already priced at $0.69/lb, with $2 off stickers on them- GREAT deal! I also saw chicken thighs (bone in), drumsticks, chicken leg quarters.”
  • And a great suggestion from Maureen for the $1.99 coffee: “Got two (although I have a Keurig and don’t use bags coffee is one of the most popular food pantry items so I know someone will be happy to have it!).”
