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

Amazon

  • Outlander shares: “I made my own Almond and Cashew butter the other day with those great Planters nuts we bought recently from Amazon. They are awesome!!!! Last one I made mixed almond and cashew and added a teaspoonful of coconut oil to it. It is just soooooo tasty! I’m gonna buy more, because with 20% S&S it’s still a great deal. Hopefully there will be a Q again soon too.” They are still $37.35 shipped with Subscribe & Save, or $3.11 per BIG can.

Caputo’s

  • Outlander reports: “Raspberries are Driscoll’s!! I have to print a lot more of my Qs and go get them. Only got 3 today, and I had 1 $1 Q and 2 $0.50. I asked if its ok to come back and get more with $1 Qs, and the lady said no problem, but they will adjust them down to 99 cents. I’m hoping to stock up my freezer. I love raspberries!” Yes, I have never had a problem with them adjusting those coupons down and accepting.

Dollar General

  • Jane says: “Well I signed up for the new Digital coupons on Dollar Generals site a few days ago and finally went last night to try it out. BIG MISTAKE! I bought almost $5 worth of stuff and when I tried to punch in my phone number to get my free $2, it locked up the transaction. People started forming a line behind me and 1 lady walked out it was taking too long. (for her) The manager was not there so they had to call her and between 2 employees and the mgr. on phone now…none of them had tried the new system yet. There were signs for this new digital program right on the registers and I even asked about it before I started to check out, in order to prevent what ended up happening. I was in the store for well over AN HOUR and left the store in my prescription sunglasses because it was bright out when I got there and pitch dark when I left! I was the first person to try to use this new system!? I think I signed up Friday night for it because I recall we rode bikes on Sat. and I was dying to test it out then.”
  • And she adds: “*also wanted to share an article I read yesterday about DG.”

Information

  • From mama: “Another ingredient to watch for is triclosan. Colgate Total includes this ingredient. The news report that I saw recommended that pregnant women and children avoid this ingredient.” She also says: “Was bummed to read about triclosan in Colgate Total yesterday. I have 12 tubes in the closet – good thing they were free so I don’t feel guilty not using them! Just not worth it IMO.”

Jewel

  • Valentina S. comments: “Jewel at 4 E Ogden Ave Westmont, IL has avocados tagged $0.59. I checked with a lady at the produce department whether the signage was right. She confirmed that it’s right. She added that this store has some special prices. I got 2 avocados. I found EE Ketchup, 20 oz. squeezable bottles that stand upside down tagged 5/$5. Just $0.25 each after $1.50/2 EE any condiment coupon. I got 2 since the EE coupon is 1 per transaction. I also used $1/2 Fresh Express printable coupon from Salad Swap on two spinach bags to make $0.49/bag. Jewel eggs at this store were $0.99, limit 2. Great shopping trip. Spend $4.76 OOP after coupons with tax for all the items above!”
  • And Kitty found: “Bananas were 19c PER POUND at the Jewel in the Glen in Glenview. There was a RED ALERT sign with the price showing that it is good thru Aug 26.

Online deals

  • From Kari O.: “Oooh, this is dangerous knowledge. I got sucked into the same [Tilly's] sale during the 4th of July and ended up spending $65 using three different orders. lol. They’re stuff is awesome! Although, be aware that the “lightweight hoody” is actually as thin (if not thinner) as a T-shirt. Stretchy and long sleeved, but really really thin! I like mine but was surprised how thin it was when they came. (We got men’s and women’s).”

Reader requests

  • Mary Lou emails: “I need to find out if anyone out there has used Smart Must Haves for the $10 rebate.  I have emailed them numerous times and no one is responding.  It leads me to believe that this site is just a scam.”
  • Kerri is wondering if anyone has noticed: “was the quaker protein instant oatmeal included [in the Target deal]? There was a 55 c off in the 8/17 rp too.”

Recalls

  • On the nut butter recall, Suzann shares: “There was a similar recall about 5 years ago–I no longer had my receipts. I printed the story and customer service at Walmart refunded with no problem.”
  • And jen asks: “I have 5 jars I just bought because it was on sale:( is anyone getting through to this number? It rings ones and disconnects for me.”

Target

  • Wendy in Hot Deals points out: “I think [the TI-84 Plus] $90 at Target this week?”

A little shopping amidst driving around

723shopping

I had to drive around hither and yon on various errands today, so figured I’d stop into the stores I was by anyway. Like: I had to pick up a prescription at CVS, then realized I need to color my hair before my brother’s wedding, then realized I had no hair color at home — the magic machine gave me $4/$20 John Frieda and it’s buy one get one 50% off this week, so I bought two even though I didn’t have my ECB with me, lol.

I stopped into Jewel with Mr. 7 and got $1.50 back for post-redeeming my Barbara’s coupon for yesterday’s trip (dropping that to net $.64 after coupons, Checkout 51, and Shopmium — thanks to David for pointing out the Shopmium!). Then we discovered that if you redeem a Kids Club Produce Card for a free apple and don’t buy anything else, it locks up the register, causes consternation, and requires the override key. (One apple before the free card, by the way? $1.15. Not pictured, because Mr. 7 ate it down to the seeds.)

So what is pictured?

CVS

  • Two John Frieda hair colour, $19.48 after buy one get one 50% off sale.

Used $4/$20 from the magic machine and paid $17.09. (Didn’t realize it wasn’t up to $20, oops, I totally did not do that on purpose because my bad math in the store made me think it would be $20.48.)

Caputo’s

  • 2 Lunchables with Smoothies, $4.00. (Mr. 7 has been jonesing for Lunchables, which I buy maybe once or twice a year, because, ick.) Used two $1.00/1 printables here.
  • 4 Fisher almond pouches, $8.00. Used four $1.00/1 from the 6/15 SS.
  • 3 artichokes, $1.00.
  • Pineapple, $.99.
  • Blueberries, $1.50.
  • Corn, $.75.
  • Sour cream, $1.00.

Paid $11.44

Ultra Foods

  • Green Giant Idaho Potatoes, $2.00. Used exp. $1.00/1 Green Giant bagged veggies from the June big book of savings at Jewel.
  • 3 Borden sliced cheese, $5.94. Used exp. $3.00/3 printable (no longer available).
  • 3 lb Granny Smith apples, $2.50.

Paid $6.62. That’s $35.15 total. Darn hair color, lol. For the week so far I’m at an out of pocket cost of $53.21 and a net cost of $46.46. How’s your shopping going?

Stopped by the new Caputo’s in Downers Grove today

caputos712

I will take some photos the next time I go in — it was kind of a zoo today — but it was somewhat disturbingly still Dominick’s-like! They used the existing aisle signage, seafood & meat department signage, produce section lighting, bakery displays and more, so it looked like a Dominick’s with Caputo’s kind of stamped on top.

  • Popchips were on special 4/$5.00, and there is a $.55/1 in the 6/29 SS to make them $.70!
  • Earthbound Farm salads are $1.99, so use $1.00/1 from the June big book of savings at Jewel.
  • Family pack chicken drumsticks are $.79/lb — but a bunch of smaller packs like this one I picked up were also tagged at the same price.
  • Driscoll’s strawberries are $1.99, if you have survey coupons.
  • The corn was 6/$1.00.
  • 2% Borden milk is $1.99, limit 1.

I bought

  • Borden 2% milk, $1.99.
  • Earthbound Farm organic salad, $1.99. Used $1.00/1 from the June big book of savings at Jewel.
  • Chicken drumsticks, $1.60.
  • 3 heads garlic, $.56.
  • Tomatoes on the vine, $.55.
  • Bananas, $.60. Will get $.25 back from Checkout 51.

Paid $9.61 with $.25 back for a net cost of $9.36.

I’m now also stocked up on olive oil, thanks to Trish, who kindly picked me up this rainchecked Goya using my coupons at her Ultra Foods after my stores didn’t carry it on the recent sale. These six bottles ran about $11 after coupons, rain check, and tax, making this day a little over $20.00.
