Too hot to shop shopping

07-22-jewel

Seriously, that 90 degrees is kind of a shock after the cool and rainy summer we’ve been having! But I decided to stop by Jewel for the $1.49/lb cherries (they looked OK but not great, so just bought the smallest bag they had), and then realized I needed avocados to make guacamole and couldn’t bring myself to spend $1.99 each at Jewel, so went down the road to ALDI where they were $.79 each. Phew! Anyway…

Jewel

One banana, $.19. Submitted for $.25 back from Checkout 51.
Cherries, $1.64.

Paid $3.89. Will get $1.50 back when I post redeem the Barbara’s coupon and $.25 back from Checkout 51 for a net cost of $2.14.

They have Tyson fresh wings on sale this week for $1.99 lb., and I was able to use the dollar off Tyson that was printable a while back. You do have to buy more than $15.00 of fresh meat, so, I did buy enough to cover the coupon, as I know rebates are pretty strict about following the rules.”

Check Ibotta BEFORE you buy things shopping

7-9-shopping

So do you ever have shopping trips that are OK, but you just feel like they could have gone better? — Anyway, stopped at Target this morning, and then also took a quick trip through ALDI and Pete’s Market. At Target, I forgot to check that the Park’s Finest rebate was still on Ibotta. It wasn’t. So I thought they’d be $.99 after cash back, and instead they were $2.49 — I wouldn’t normally pay $2.49 for a pack of hot dogs, no matter how “finest” they are, lol.

Buen Sabor, $3.99. Used $1.50/1 printable (boosted on Hopster — I already used the $2.50) and will get $4.00 back from Ibotta.

Got $.05 off for bringing a bag. Paid with $15.00 in gift cards and $1.64 on REDcard (saved $.04 with that, lol!). Will get back $5.50 from Shopmium and Ibotta, for a net cost of $11.14.

Pete’s Market

4 Galbani mozzarella, $9.96. Used two $3.00/2 coupons.
Cherry tomatoes, $.99.

Reader deals 7/7/14

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

  • From seachicago: “I found Aldi brand dishwasher rinse aid today (like Finish) for 49 cents for an 8.45 oz. bottle. I found some about 6 months ago and snapped it up, and it seems to work fine! Outstanding price. Found mine at Aldi on the SW side of Chicago (yes, I shelf-cleared all 8 bottles—sorry!).”

CVS

  • A question from lisa: “the ad says the limit for gas deal is 1. does is actually work for more if done in separate transactions?”
  • Something to keep in mind, from julie: “CVS carries these [Scott Extra Soft packs] and puts them on spend $30, get $10 ECB deals quite regularly at an even better price per roll depending on what magic coupon machine coupons are available.”
  • A tip from Abigayle: “Just in case anyone else is having trouble with the PG/Tide rebate…I am able to open it in Firefox but not IE.”
  • A heads up from feelgood: “Printed up the $2.00 coupon from the link above, but it has the Walmart logo on it. My CVS won’t accept these, as per CVS coupon policy :-(“

Jewel

  • From Krystle: “Another Jewel deal, $1 instant savings when you buy 2 Kellogg’s items (big book page 24). Keebler cornbread and townhouse pretzel thins are on sale this week for $1.99. So buy 2 use the $1/2 Keebler/towhnhouse from the 6/29RP, pay 99 cents a box.”

Loyalty programs

  • Amy on Facebook says: “Just got a free sample of a newborn diaper and wipes from Huggies being mailed to me when I went to enter codes at Huggies rewards program. You have to either be a member or sign up, not sure how long this has been going or how long it will go for. Just an FYI

Online deals

  • An offer to go with the Gymboree 40% off sale, from Amy: “I have an extra 20% coupon from Family Fun magazine if anyone wants it. Let me know!”

Prescriptions

  • Maureen sends over: “Want to share this w/you if you’ve not already heard of it.  It’s a website www.goodrx.com that saved us a significant amount of money on a prescription for my husband.
    You enter your location and the med you need on the GoodRx site and they find you the lowest price in your area (Walgreen’s, Wal-mart, Target, etc.). You then print out a discount card and take it to the retail pharmacy of your choice.
    In our case my husband filled a prescription at Wal-mart using the discount card and saved $120 on a 30 day supply compared to what we’ve been paying Caremark for a 30 day supply for the last seven years. Since this is an organ transplant med for my husband that he’ll be taking for the rest of his life, we’re thrilled to be saving over $1400/year on just one of the many prescription meds he takes. We’ll try GoodRx for the other meds as his inventory runs low.
    The only caveat is that amount you pay isn’t applied to your deductible since you are filling the Rx outside of your medical plan. In our case we meet our deductible pretty easily so it’s not an issue, but it may be for some.”

Target

  • Tamara posts on Facebook: “Another unexpected savings from my Target mobile coupon (it never said I redeemed my $1 off of $5 fresh fruit or the other mystery coupon it took off from last week). Today, I was using the GRILL text to take $1 off Iams cat food and it took $.75 off one of my Oreos. I’m guessing this was from the “honey maid snack item” since they are both Nabisco products. $1.25 for a pack of Oreos isn’t bad!
  • A similar story from Brandy: “Oddly, I did the Oreo deal today (2 and a milk gallon) as you mentioned above and scanned all my mobile coupons. I scan them all anyway just in case I forget something and while I didn’t have any of the items in my transaction, it appears the $1 off two 5.5oz Nabisco Wheat Thin crackers came off from the Oreo purchase (also Nabisco?). The mint ones taste like thin mints, by the way. Yum.”
  • Krystle shares: “But here’s a Target deal, buy 1 milo dog treat on sale for $3, and 1 milkbone brushing @ $3.99 (price matched with Jewel @ $3.50). Used $1.50/1 milo dog treat 6/29SS, and $1/1 milkbone brushing 6/29SS. Total after coupons and price match = $4.00. But you can also earn $3.25 back through Ibotta, $1 for the milo, $1.25 for the milkbone, and $1 “love your pup” bonus for buying both. So only 75 cents for both. (If you bring your own bag, and pay with your Red card. You will only pay 50 cents for both!!!) “
  • Sarah noticed: “Cartwheel has 5% off of lots of Up & Up baby stuff like diapers, wipes, formula, baby food, and baby lotion. That’s not a great discount obviously, but at least we can pair it with the $20/$100 coupon.”
  • A scenario from Victoria on Facebook: “Awesome deal for diapers. Buy 4 $24.99 diapers Huggies, Pampers, Luvs. Buy a cheap baby related item like wipes or baby food (you have to hit $100 for this deal to work). Use the $20 off /$100 in the target ad. If you got today’s papers there was $3 off Pampers use that for Pampers. You will get back 2 $10 target gift cards. Grand Total: $60 for 4 boxes or $15 a box … (this is after giftcards) with coupons goes down to $12 per box”
  • From Amy on Facebook: “I was there yesterday and saw a lot of girls toys at 30% off. The Target in Naperville.

Whole Foods

  • Peaches shares: “Almost every weekend each Whole Foods store has a three day sale where you can get stuff substantially cheaper. They usually have three items for sale on their three day sale, and frequently meat, seafood or poultry is included on the three day sale. They occasionally have one day sales. They had one a few years ago where they had whole organic chicken for $1,99 a pound, and they occasionally put their rotisserie chicken on sale for one day for $5. They always have a black Friday sale too. A few years ago, they had imported Italian Parmesan cheese on sale for $10 a pound. It is normally $22, and yes it is better than domestic cheese, and is way better than the stuff in the green can. I won’t even buy that stuff. If you buy good cheese, you only have to use a few tablespoons on your pasta, and so it lasts me forever.. Some Whole Foods are more coupon friendly than others. The Whole Foods in South Evanston, is way more coupon friendly than the one in downtown Evanston. I buy most of my spices at WF, and they are way cheaper in bulk, and they are way better than the jars you get for $1 at Aldi’s. I do occasionally buy spices at Spice House on Central Street in Evanston. They have wonderful spices, but you have to buy a minimum amount there, and so I only buy spices that I use tons of such as basil and cinnamon. Their Vietnamese Cinnamon is to die for, and is their biggest seller. I add it to my oatmeal. I don’t buy as many other bulk items at WF as I used to. The downtown Evanston store downsized their bulk department, and for instance they don’t carry soy flour in bulk any more or baking yeast.. I do buy cornmeal and wheat germ in bulk though”
