Amazon

  • From Deanna on Facebook: “I have a friend who just released a book yesterday – her first! I was a beta reader, it’s a really good political thriller/romance. Check out the reviews – and the book is currently only 99 cents! It’s a great read.” Dissident: The Bellator Saga Book 1 — $.99 for Kindle.

Anti-Virus

  • More on the Kaspersky deal from Nora: “In the 16 years that I’ve owned PCs, Kaspersky has found (and eliminated) several threats that other anti-virus software didn’t detect. As a result, I think it is well worth the investment. But then, my business is online – and I’m willing to pay for a quality product to protect my livelihood. A “free” program isn’t worth the risk.”

Costco

  • Another tip on non-members using gift cards, from Martha: “Just wanted to add a further loophole to the whole Costco gift card thing. You can check to see if your school sells fundraising gift cards for Costco. I used to be able to get them through my daughter’s preschool.”

Coupons

Dollar Tree

  • If you also find $1.00 Nature Valley granola at your Dollar Tree, Jane points out: “I found the Nature Valley granola in the clearance section at my Kroger store for $1 each as well. It says limit 3 PER RECEIPT. I bought 3 in 2 separate orders on the same day and they approved them both! I went back and post redeemed several 75c insert coupons we had for them as well. (Nature Valley granola: 75c/1, 2-8 SS, exp. 3-21.) I did this deal last week, awesome! I hope I find them at my Dollar Tree as well, but I never hold my breath….especially if there were insert coupons out.”
  • And more finds from Liz: “Also at the des Plaines dollar tree while you are getting your free werthers.. And mm nature valley granola…75 off from 2\8.. Thanks Jane they also have Thomas English muffins for a dollar and on snap get 75 cents back

Jewel

napjewel1

  • Martha shares on Facebook that the Re-Grand Opening is still going at the Jewel in S. Naperville. These prices good at 1227 S. Naper Blvd in Naperville, and 1340 S. Canal St. in Chicago.

napjewel2

Joe Caputo’s

  • Liz comments: “Joe caputo in des. Plaines has 3lb bag halos for 2.98 and. 1.00 back from snapAlso use the $.50/1 in the 3/8 SS.

Target

  • Peaches comments on the King Arthur Flour deal: “I love King Arthur flour, and that is a really good price. I especially like their white whole wheat flour, which has a milder taste than WW flour, but has as much nutrition and fiber as WW.”
  • Focadima asks: “if anyone in the Chicago suburbs ( south suburbs especially) find the [Planters] peanuts for 2.99 please post! Mine were 3.49 as well”
  • Another great Snap matchup from liz: “at target p.f. chang frozen rice apps are on sale 2.99 with the 5% cartwheel and I got an unlimited offer on snap for 1.75 back on any p.f. chang making each box 1.09.. great price for last minute meals!! They are normally 3.50 a box over here there is also a target deal buy 3 dinners get one free. I wasn’t thinking should of got those. 5.99 each, so 4 for $18.00 -.90=17.10 plus 7.00 from snap is 10.10 for 4 dinners(the bags)”
  • Wondering if the $.80 Mom’s Best cereal is any good? SoapboxTray comments: “My 14 year old had the Cocoa Rice one this morning even though he doesn’t need to eat Gluten Free, he ate half the box. Ugh… so if that is a feedback rating I would say it is a good one. I stopped this morning on my way to work and and bought 3 more boxes of that one and 3 more of the marshmallow one. The best by dates seemed pretty close on the ones I bought but it doesn’t appear that there will be an issue with using them by that date (July and Sept.)”
  • And Susie concurs: “My kids have tried the honey nut cheerios and cinnamon toast version when i purchased them for $1.50 at Mariano’s. Its their everyday low price. I normally don’t like to pay more than $1/box for cereal, but since these cereals had only simple ingredients in them I figured I would give them a try with my kids( ages ranging from 3-11). They all liked them, so yesterday I purchased the other varieties at Target and they were a hit the kids… So it looks like I will be grabbing a few more boxes at Target this week :)
  • From Valentina S.: “Tena 26 ct. liner are $2.89 at Willowbrook Target. At least 2 more were left after I got 2, used two $2.00/1 printable MQ and got $5.00 GC. Nice MM!” Note: Price will vary by store on these — they were tagged $3.49 at Hillside and sold out yesterday. :)
  • And a post-St. Patrick’s Day clearance find from Lynn: “Vernon Hills Super Target had Cooks Corned Beef Flats $1.99/lb today. Many had sell by dates into May. It won’t go any lower, so I bought a year’s worth for the freezer.”

Ultra Foods

  • A feelgood find: “12 oz Lavazza ground coffee is also advertised for $5.99. If you have the Lavazza $5.00/1 tearpad coupons, makes them $0.99 each! Better than the Jewel sale, where they’re tagged $6.99 until April. Found some at Jewel earlier this month.”

Anti-Virus

  • In response to yesterday’s question about Kaspersky & Norton, northwesternly says: “re: Kaspersky pc security — Been getting Norton pc security at a song every year from Staples’ 20% off q, stacked with any toner ink rebates and Norton’s annual markdown. But learned last fall, all Comcast internet customers get free Norton security along with their Comcast internet acct. So all our home tech devices are now protected FREE through Comcast. There isn’t a bit of difference with it than with Norton’s multi-device or 360 purchased individually.”And Suzann comments: “There is a website avg.com and you can download for free anti-virus. Checkout the website askbob.com.
    Norton is considered bloat ware by many savvy tech sites.”

Costco

  • Maureen says: “before your membership expires buy yourself some Costco gift cards. You don’t have to be a member to redeem them – you just tell the person who checks membership cards at the door that you’re using your gift card. When you checkout redeem one or two cards and pay the balance with your debit card or cash.”
  • But Cheryl replies: “I thought they did away with this loophole. I would make sure you call your store just to be sure.” So I asked the Google, and survey says: “You must be a Costco member to purchase or reload Costco Cash Cards. Members and non-members may use the cash cards to shop at any Costco location in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico and online at Costco.com or on Costco.ca. Costco Cash balances may be used toward membership or merchandise.”
  • And from Betty: “You don’t need to split the coupons!!! They ALL ring automatically on your card. My cashiers don’t even scan the flyer anymore. You can share the membership, but you both can get all the deals. Also if a member buys a cashcard for you; you can shop with that and you don’t need a membership- and yes all the coupons apply!!”
  • And a question from Artie: “RE: Costco Exchange Policy Do they ask for identification other than your members card when you return something? The reason I ask is that I use the membership card that was issued for my brother-in-law. Obviously we have different last names so I’ve always been afraid to return anything myself for fear of having to surrender the card. Thanks”
  • An answer from seachicago: “I admit—I’m a horrible, serial returner in general! But I’ve never had them ask for anything other than my Costco card for a return, and I always get cash back (I always pay with debit).”
  • See more comments on what’s always a good buy at Costco + my ideas here.

Coupons

Dollar Tree

  • Liz scored a great deal: “My dollar tree has the nature valley granola bags normally 4.50 a bag and on snap there’s a 1.00 back offer making them free limit of 3..however when I got the receipt it printed as I bought a granola bar..I will let you know if I get my 3.00 back…record fast reply, I got credit already. I purchased these at the des plaines location”

Jewel

  • From Laura: “There is a 75 cents off 2 essential everyday dry pasta items coupon on http://www.essentialeveryday.com to go along with the sale” $1.00 each at Jewel this week, so two for $1.25 after coupon.

Meijer

  • On the baking products Catalina, Anne comments: “Did this yesterday – also includes baking cups & baking soda. If you scan it at the price check station, it will verify whether it’s part of the promo.”

Reader Requests

  • A question from Rosemary on Facebook: “Reader request – Recommendations for decent quality *affordable* furniture Chicagoland stores or online. Thank you.” See lots of suggestions people have been adding in the Hot Deals Facebook group, and see if you have any to add.
  • And a question from Martha on Facebook: “Reader request: Any good deals on decently performing laptops out there? I am looking to replace (and upgrade) my Dell with 4.0GB memory 2.2 Ghz. I am not opposed to reputable retailers with open box or factory remanufactured if they carry the same warranty”

Target

velveeta

  • Some of you have commented the the Target Rotel/Velveeta deal didn’t work for you. SoapboxTray sends in this photo and says: “Showing date through 4/1! This is Super Target Mundelein, maybe just a Super Target deal?”
  • And more Target deals from SoapboxTray: “when I was scoping out the meat section this morning at Super Target, the meat guy said he will be marking down the corned beef to $1.99 a lb and asked if I wanted one he would mark it for me. He was going to do the rest of them yet this morning… Cheez-It Chrunch’d 35% off cartwheel and they are on sale for $2.66 a bag. Reduced it to $1.72 and I had a 70¢ off 1 that Kellogg sends me from their email newsletter. Also a 50¢ off ibotta.
  • If you don’t want four colorful duct tape for $6.00 shipped, here’s some clearance to be on the lookout for from Kari O.: “I actually just scored some Scotch and Duck brand duct tape at Target on clearance for 50% off. The pink and chevron designs were $1.68, glitter and sparkles for $2.48 and TMNT for $2.98. They will probably get marked down further, but I need them now for a project with my kiddo. Also, the TMNT while costing more, actually was thicker and had more on the roll than the glitter one.”

  • Kitty has something to check for if you are looking for a prescription deal: “Meijer Mperks has a personalized deal for prescriptions. After you fill 5, you get $10 off of a $10 purchase; if you fill 10, you get $20 off of a $20 purchase.”

Online deals

  • On the pretty Swarovski clover necklace, Amy comments: “Lucky I didn’t get it from here, the last two years I found it for under $1.95 on Amazon….and ebay, but this year they caught the emotional buyer with St Patrick’s day and I had trouble finding it under $8.95…. Like the leprechaun just keep hunting for that treasure.” I’m not sure if the quality would be the same, but you can get one for next year for $3.59 shipped on Amazon here.

beefsteak

What goodies have you spotted at your Dollar Tree lately? I popped into the Glen Ellyn store to buy papers today and it was a zoo — the Ross Dress for Less in the same strip mall is doing its grand opening today, and the Dollar Tree checkout line stretched way back into the aisle with one beleaguered cashier.

But here are some things I saw — and as I was leaving, a guy rolled in a cart and started unloading Beefsteak Rye, Brownberry bread (oat something and country white), and Sara Lee sandwich thins. Alas, I was not standing in that line again to buy bread, but if you find these at yours: Use $.50/1 Brownberry in the 1/18 SS, $.75/1 Beefsteak in the 3/8 SS.

campb

They had a bunch of Campbell’s Home Style soup pouches. $.50/2 in the 1/11 SS2.

Costco

  • On the Costco gluten free deals, Alex is curious: “I did not read the location you where at that had the flour and the and the waffles? Does anyone know if the Bloomingdale store has these items?”

Dollar Tree

  • On the $1.00/2 Pictsweet coupon, Jane comments: “or I have seen these at Dollar Tree as well. I even saw spinach, but the ones at Ultra may be larger. The Dollar Tree ones were 10-12 oz. at my store.”

Meijer

  • You might try a couple of times for the free yogurt coupons on mPerks. Maria says: “When I looked under the Dairy category, I originally only had 5 of the Bonza and Yulu offers. I clipped them. Then I looked at the Dairy category again. Got 4 more Bonza and Yulu offers for a grand total of 9 offers. My sister had all 9 show up the first time. Weird!”

Reader requests

  • A question from Elizabeth on Facebook: “help please..does anyone know of a new prescription deal anywhere or have a coupon?”

Tea

  • More on the tea discussion from Connie, who shares: “World Market has the Republic of Teas line, and they regularly run it on sale. And there’s 10% off coupons fairly regularly if you’re in their loyalty club. That’s where I usually get it. I actually prefer the teas from Adagio, though. Its a little bit more for the outlay (usually $6-$10 a bag) but you can resteep many of their teas, making the tea last much longer. Celestial Seasonings I think gets stale after awhile.”

Apps — Deals for CVS, Jewel, Meijer, and Target!

  • Laura comments: “On the Shopmium App there is a 40 cent rebate on Idahoan potatoes. I purchased 3 packages of Idahoan Potatoes at Jewel and used the printable $1 off 3 from coupons.com and received a 40 cent rebate that went directly to my PayPal account.” (If you’re new, use code GMEFHHTP on signup to unlock a welcome offer for 100% back on a Lindt bar.)
  • On the Nature Valley granola deal at Target, Eun found: “I have a $1 offer on the NV Protein Granola on snap too. Should have gotten $2 back, but they only credited me 1. I asked them to review the receipt, but this the norm for snap when claiming more than 1 of an item. Ugh, my least favorite of the rebate apps!”
  • From Maureen: “Check your CVS for clearance prices on Acne Free products, with current Ibotta offers there are some great deals that be had.” Also coupons to stack in the 1/11 SS1.
  • A Meijer find from liz: “there is a great 1.50 off 3 cleaning items STORE coupon on mperks.. this is how I used mine..fabuloso 1.89 lavender scent, 1.00 back from checkout 51 and .50 man. coupon from mperks, clearance 62 count green works wipes for 2.93 and ibotta 1.00 back and .75 off printable, and I needed dish soap so 24 oz gain for 1.89( no coupon) which totaled about 2.00 the price I would of paid anyways for the dish soap I needed. I am sure you can think of other ways to use this good store coupon!”
  • Some useful info from Shandelle: “I actually contacted Jingit last week because I was annoyed that the Grocery Essentials were there when I was at work and gone only a few hous later. This is what they told me as far as how often they et refreshed: As you know, the offers available through Jingit come in a limited quantity, and, for a limited time. Offers will run out, and if you are trying to reserve one that has, will not be able to. Once an offer runs out, the section that contained it, like Grocery Essentials, will disappear from the app. Some sections of the application will be refilled on a schedule, giving you additional chances at redeeming them. – Grocery Essentials refilled weekly on Thursday and Sunday. – Home Essentials refilled weekly on Thursday and Sunday. – Special monthly sections refilled weekly with new content”
  • And a follow-up suggestion from Shandelle: “I tested it and they did refresh on Thursday and Sunday. So I set an alert in my iphone reminding me to immediately reserve everything so they don’t disappear within a few hours! At least they allow that so it’s not quite as infuriating at the Snap produce offers that run out immediately!”

Coupons

Dollar Tree

  • A free find from Victoria: “At Villa Park this Saturday I got breath right strips using a $1.50 coupon for the 10count.” Coupon is in the 1/25 RP1.

Dunkin Donuts

  • A Facebook share from Elizabeth: “If you have the dunkin donut app check it..I just received free small ice coffee today only since the bulls won yesterday..nice!

Heads up

  • Maggie noticed: “Just something I noticed when it comes to Nutella: the first ingredient in the 13 oz jars is usually sugar. When you compare bigger and smaller jars, you will see that there is a difference and that the bigger jars have more hazelnuts and, according to my friend, taste a lot better as well. It might have to do where they manufacture this product – apparently in different places for different sizes?! I don’t know how/why, but I thought this was interesting.”

Jewel

  • Amanda comments on the BOGO sale this week: “Check the Marzetti dressings at Jewel. I found $1/1 hangtags today :)
  • And Kari O. points out that the $.50/1 coupon from the February Big Book of Savings will work on the $1.99 Jewel water during the three day sale Friday-Sunday.

Meijer

  • From Juli: “Elgin Meijer has boneless skinless Chicken Breast 1.99lb everyday when you order from the meat counter.”
  • A great suggestion from Corissa: “Meijer also has their Baby Rewards mperks program. For every $100 you spend on baby stuff (including diapers) you get a $10 mperks coupon–good for your total purchase of anything, not just baby stuff. So you if do the Luvs diaper deal twice (in 2 transactions), you would spend enough to get another $10 off coupon.”

Reader requests

  • Connie asks: “Has anyone seen a deal on the new blu ray for 101 Dalmatians? I haven’t seen anyone post coupons or prices for it yet.”

Sweepstakes

Target

dialsoap

  • A great deal from Maureen on these fancier hand soaps: “Great deal at Target on these Dial liquid soaps: Original price $2.29, less 20% Dial cartwheel, less $1 MQ attached to each, equals $.83 each.” And she follows up: “Lots still on the shelf at Naperville/Bolingbrook Target on Boughton Rd.”

Ultra Foods

  • Something to look for from Valentina S. on this week’s $2.99 butter sale: “The packages of Challenge butter quarters that I bought on sale at Ultra when the $1.00/1 Challenge butter MQs were available have $0.55/1 MQs on the inside. Exp. 12/31/2015 !”
