  • 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.”


  • 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.”


  • 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

Reader requests

  • One from Julie on Facebook: “Looking for a deal on the newest, hottest thing that my 3rd grader is into. Animal Jam. Any deals on Animal Jam membership cards?? (3 month preferable, but I won’t be too picky.) Thanks in advance.”
  • Diane is wondering: “Does anybody know if Recyclebank still offers the CVS e gift card as a reward? (It has said sold out for a a long time.)”


  • 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.”


  • On the cheap Chicago Bears sherpa throw, Mary comments on Facebook that: “Sears also has been having a huge clearance on Bears and Cowboys items. Many clothing items for kids through adults, male and female. Lots of odds and ends too (Blankets,Socks,Flags,Clocks,Mugs, etc…).

Ultra Foods


  • 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!).”

Some movie tickets for your gloomy Chicago morning. Maybe it’s sunny by you, though — but you’ll still want a movie eventually, lol. Anyway, let’s start with this nice AmazonLocal deal: $7 (up to $14 value) for one Fandango movie ticket.


Even better if you’re close to Wheaton — $5.00 Studio Movie Grill tickets are back on Groupon! And this is a great theater.


Or do Brew & View at The Vic, where $8 gets you tickets and popcorn for two!


At the Bensenville Theater, get up to 50% off movie, popcorn, and drinks.


And LivingSocial has half off Hollywood Palms tickets for two or for four.


Plus half off Hollywood Blvd. in Woodridge!

Oh do I need this! One of the top deals under Chicago-Western Suburbs on Amazon Local today is TWO hours of housecleaning for $19 from Handybook. That’s super cheap… and Mother’s Day is coming up… and… psst MashupDad! Update — I am not sure where exactly their service area is, sorry — it says Chicago on their page but no one seems to have found a ZIP that works. :(
