I wished for a deal on olive oil…

aldi-oil

.. and then went to ALDI. I was just thinking I needed to buy more olive oil soon, and the Villa Park ALDI on Roosevelt today had organic extra virgin Greek and Spanish olive oil on clearance for $2.49. So I kind of bought six bottles. (This made up for the insane road construction getting there — Roosevelt down to one lane from three, fun times.)

Now I will wish for a deal on shredded cheese and Purina ONE cat food. How about you?

aldi-shopping

My store still had a stack of the ads ending today with the $3.00 meat coupon. I just got tomorrow’s ad in the mail and it does not have another coupon, so you might want to grab an ad if you are out today, as the coupon is good through 9/8. So $15 in olive oil and 3 lbs of expensive-but-don’t-want-to-make-another-stop-potatoes later, I managed to spend an unprecedented $31.82 at ALDI today…

3 lbs Yukon Gold potatoes, $2.79.
Organic soy milk, $2.19.
Half & half, $1.89.
One of those natural-ish whole chickens, $5.20. Used the $3.00 meat coupon.
12 oz shredded cheese, $2.49.
Kids cheese slices with animal faces (lol), clearanced at $.99.
Tortilla chips, $.79.
6 bottles organic olive oil, $14.94.
6 avocados, $2.94.

Spent $31.82.

ALDI

  • For those asking if the fresh meat coupon is in the ad in store, Linda shares: “They had the ad right there as I walked in, and it had the $3 off fresh meat coupon. When the cashier rang me out, she put the coupon in my cart, I assume to use again. I asked if she needed it, and she said no.”

Apps

  • Jay has also been having SavingStar issues: “I’ve been having A LOT of problems with Saving Star all of July and August, and I use it regularly. At least 1-2 times a week. It is frustrating to have to contact customer service, and yes, it is 5-10 days. However, if you just respond to the last email with your “next/new” issue, they respond same day/next day! So don’t submit a new inquiry online. Respond to the rep by email!”

Coupons

  • A heads up from feelgood: “Read on other boards that the 8/30/15 Sunday Red Plum coupon insert has a coupon for a free 60 day Sam’s Club membership, and a second coupon for the free Instant Savings book. Hoping it’s in the Tribune!” I’ll let you know tomorrow…
  • And on the new Crayola coupon, Kari O. suggests: “Use at Target! They have Cartwheel offers to stack, including a 40% off SuperTips Markers….!”

Jewel

  • A find from seachicago: “At the deli: Wunderbar Bologna is $1.99/lb. I found a tear pad right there for $1 off a pound. Seriously cheap bologna!”

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

  • From Maria S.: “25 point Kelloggs Family Rewards code: ITSS-OEAS-Y2LU-VKFR Expires 8/28/15”

Kohl’s

Resale

  • Heather shares: “SEEKING SELLERS AND SHOPPERS! Have a bunch of kids clothing, toys and other equipment that is sitting in your basement? Have your kids outgrown them? Consider selling at the Mothers and More Oswego fall resale! The resale will be held on September 12 at Long Beach Elementary in Montgomery. Registration is now open. Check out http://mothersandmoreoswego.com/resale for more information or to register.”

TJ Maxx

  • Another possibility for cheap Method foaming hand wash from Natalie0920: “I just bought a bunch of Method hand soaps at TJ Maxx for $1.99 each.”

Under $9 at ALDI shopping

aldi-828

Stopped by ALDI today to get some things for our salsa chicken dinner tonight — needed tortillas, was almost out of cheese (come ooooon cheese deal…) and couldn’t pass up more $.49 avocados!

2 cans clearance organic refried black beans, $.49.
4 avocados, $1.96. Will get back $.25 from Checkout 51.
Corn tortillas, $.33.
Flour tortillas, $.85.
Raspberries, $1.29.
12 oz shredded cheese, $2.49.
Tortilla chips, $.79.

Paid $8.84 with $.25 back for a net cost of $8.59. I usually buy their restaurant style tortilla chips, but figured since the rounds are on sale this week we’d give them a try.

aldi-quarter

So when you find someone has left a quarter already in your ALDI cart, do you always pay it forward? :)

ALDI

  • From Linda: “Re: Aldi meat coupon. I used it today on sweet Italian sausage, $3.69 for the package. Paid $.75 out of pocket. The cashier had to check with another cashier sbout how to use it, but it scanned just fine. Yay for cheap meat!!”

Dollar Tree

  • A note from seachicago on the Duncan Hines coupon: “I’ve seen Duncan Hines at Dollar Tree a lot lately, especially their “velvets” specialty mixes.”

Jewel

  • Kitty shares: “8.5 oz Kettle Chips are BOGO $2.99 on Mymixx.  When I purchased 2 of the 13 oz size @$3.68 (they were marked $3.99), $3.49 was deducted for the second one.”
  • Jaci comments on the Ice Mountain deal: “Worked like a charm! If you don’t find any on shelve check the front of your store mine had a ton. Pizza deal was awesome also ton a lot of stock.”
  • And dani combined the Ice Mountain with the DiGiorno deal: “I bought 3 cases and 3 Digiorno pizzas (thin) to get to the Nestle Buy $20, Save $5 sale. Used 3 – .75 coupon and 3- 1.00 coupon. got back $2 cat for digiorno pizza and 2.25 cat for water. so, total 6.55. good deal.”
  • From Michelle b on the Ice Mountain deal: “If you buy 12, $5 comes off instantly on the Nestlé deal ($5 off instant when you spend $20) Use 12 qs and get the 2.25 Catalina. 3.75 for 12 packs of water.”

Meijer

  • Dawn comments on the free Propel deal: “i think they have the sizes wrong. we bought the regular propel water yesterday and they are 710 ml. i didn’t see the fitness water at all at meijer but maybe we missed it. there was a deal on gatorade that if you bought 2 8-packs of gatorade you got 3 750ml bottles of propel for free but we couldn’t find the 750ml bottles……they gave us the 710ml bottles instead for free……weird!”
  • Sabrina doesn’t recommend it: “I bought 11 of the giant bottles of the Propel Electrolyte water to bring to an outside concert at Millenium park. The water tastes terrible and even though it was close to 100 that day, everyone that came with preferred to drink from the nasty water fountains that were providing hot water rather than drink the Propel water. To me it sort of tasted like a flavorless Gatorade, salty with a slimy mouth feel.”

Reader requests

  • Lori asks: “Anybody know of a Highlights Magazine deal? My dd wants this for her bday and I can’t find a deal on it.” I know it’s not much, but here’s a $5 off offer: http://bit.ly/1PVVueH — anyone else?
  • And jane has a question: “Can anyone recommend a book for kids how save and use money wisely. Would like to get for my nephew”

SavingStar

  • From Like2save: “Like feelgood, I discovered that SavingStar is not crediting my account properly. It seems to be happening at all stores, including receipt submission stores, not just Jewel. I contacted customer service on several occasions. By the way, customer service responds within 5-10 BUSINESS days.”
  • Shandelle is also having issues: “I hate the stores in Ibotta the require a card. It almost never works. Over the weekend I wasted so much time in an email going back and forth with one of their reps who was refusing to give me credit and passing off my complaints as “feedback” – um, no, your system is broken and I have proof I bought this item; this isn’t “feedback” !! I never used to have problems with Savings Star crediting my stuff. But lately it’s been a small problem here and there. When Jewel did the free Nature Valley nut bars a couple weeks ago, there was also a coupon for $.75 off a box on Savings Star. It never applied. But maybe it was because it came through as $0 and somehow their system didn’t realize I “bought” it. Their customer service fixed it no questions asked and they almost always do. I’ve had a lot of the produce offers not credit and they just give me credit without even putting up a fight. The problem is their service is soooo slow now. They take upwards to 15 days to get back to you now. Wonder why they don’t just hire more people?!”

Staples

Valli Produce

  • John W shares: “The Evanston store’s prices are similar this week, although it has a $10 off $50 coupon instead of $10 off $75. There is an extra 2-page spread in the Evanston ad with a few deals: Shish Kabobs, $2.99/lb limit 6. Whole catfish $1.99/lb. Focaccia bread, 99 cents. Dutch Farms chicken kievs, 67 cents. Imported Parmigiano Reggiano, $8.99/lb. Eggland’s Best organic large eggs, $2.77. Wrapped candy, 99 cents/lb. Valli is also giving away a back-to-school gift basket at each location, entry here: https://www.facebook.com/valliproduce?app_data=%7B%7D&v=app_190076381016644.”

ALDI

  • On the $3 off meat coupon, from Valentina S.: “I got this $3.00 off meat coupon in the ad at ALDI on 6415 S Cass Ave, Westmont and used it on one package of 73% lean ground beef, 5 lbs., $12.99. $9.99 + tax for 5 lbs of ground beef after coupon!”
  • But Priscilla comments: “I just went to Aldi and used the meat coupon on a package of lean ground turkey for 3.29 and the cashier said that in order to use it that I had to purcahse 2 pkgs of meat. So I was puzzled and she called to the manager and he said ok, but I will check with corporate to verify details of coupon. Anyone else have trouble?” The wording on the coupon is “$3.00 off fresh meat with any fresh meat purchase.” So I think that’s unclear — do they mean $3.00 off any fresh meat purchase, or $3.00 off fresh meat when you buy another fresh meat? Although I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just say $3.00/2 packages if they intended that, to avoid confusion.
  • Maria S. asks: “Does anyone know if the paper ad at the store has the coupon?”
  • Joanne says: “I live in Tinley Park and my ad does NOT have this coupon.”
  • Jane comments: “I live in Bourbonnais and my ad ALSO does not have that nice meat coupon. I even checked in the actual newspaper and it is not there in either my local or my Tribune today. I’m guessing they may put in in the paper tomorrow? We can only hope.”

Amazon

Coupons

  • On today’s new chocolate coupon, from Catherine: “The Ghiradelli Coupon has a long expiration date- 12/31/2015. Plenty of time to find it on sale or better yet a discontinued flavor on clearance!”

Jewel

digio

  • From SmartShopper: Just came back from Jewel. I did the DiGiiorno Pizza deal. I mixed and matched 4 participating pizzas (rising crust and pizzeria varieties). Used three 1.00/1 manufacture principles. I did receive the $3 dollars Catalina. $2.00 Pizza is a great price!
  • And feelgood asks: “Is anyone else having problems with SavingStar tracking receipts and adding payouts to their account? I added my Jewel MyMixx number to SavingStar a few months ago, and for a while all items on my SavingStar list paid out. In the past two weeks, I added 4 SavingStar items to my list and purchased them at Jewel with my MyMixx number, none of them have paid out. I looked on the SavingStar facebook page and noticed others waiting 2 weeks or more with no payout.” I JUST got something from a Jewel trip like three weeks ago that posted to my SavingStar, so it may just be slow — anyone else?
  • Finds from Jane: “Just got back from Jewel and they have the fake crab priced at $2.50 for the one you buy. So after using 2- 75c coupons, it comes to 50c each when you get 2! Naturally I had to argue with a (veteran) checker that I could indeed use a coupon on the free item. But I also scored on the Tribe hummus. Watch for peelies off short dated ones, I found some for all 3 ($1 stickers), making them only 49c for all 3! That’s only 16c each after the coupons and deal. I was happy with this trip!”

Mariano’s

  • Julie asks: “So I am completely not impressed by the loyalty card linking to Ibotta. I have now been to Mariano’s on 2 different occasions, purchasing several items eligible for rebates and NOTHING! No credits whatsoever. I made sure that the rebates were unlocked beforehand and made sure to give them my card (once scanning my actual card and once scanning the card through the ibotta app). I contacted ibotta at the end of last week and today got a response saying they don’t show any submissions since July. This is definitely not easier than taking a picture of my receipt. Has anyone else had success with this? I am really annoyed.”
  • Heads up from Karen: “I went to meijer today and was trying to get my free maricle whip and the 5 birthday cake gums. They were out of both and the lady at the service desk told me if they run out you are out of luck! no rainchecks! just as supply lasts. Bummer!”

Meijer

  • On this week’s mPerks deal, joe asks: “Where exactly are the gums in the store? I tried by the checkout lane, the candy aisle and the cake section,… no luck”
  • And feelgood replies: “By the checkout lane at my Meijer. They were on the top shelf on the left side above all the other gum. Package is white and pink about 3″ by 4″, doesn’t look like regular gum sticks, so kind of easy to miss.”
  • Meg reminds us: “Just wanted to mention, if you got those $2 produce or $2 dairy catalina…..they roll. Each time I used one of those, I got both (one of each) every single time. Make sure not to use mperks or card as a payment. I paid cash each time and got them. I also noticed that when you use the cataline from the same day, it does not give out those catalinas. I have been doing this for the past three days 2 -3 transactions of dairy and produce.”

Menards

  • Don points out: “Sprecher 4 pack soda, $1.27. – this was typo in paper… this price is after rebate and limit 4…. still great deal.”

Pete’s

  • Susie recommends the sale Halal chicken: “The Mediterranean whole chicken on sale for $1.49 is a very good price. I bought it before when Pete’s first opened in Bridgeview to try it. The chicken is very tender and juicy. I will be picking up some this week. :)”
  • And Trish shares that: “Oak Park Pete’s opens 9/2!”

Tickets

  • Patty comments on the Chicago Ultimate Women’s Expo: “I also saw that you can get free tickets at every Starbucks, as they are the big sponsor for the expo. The sign said that stores should have tickets in by Aug 18th. The sign said that it was good for all parts of the expo.”
