Amazon

CVS

  • On Got2B, Outlander says: “There’s $1 back on Saving Star too, for CVS, so could be a good deal there.”

Gluten-free dining

  • Anne shares: “Rev Burger in Carol Stream offers gluten free buns and healthier options. I don’t know if that seems like a birthday dinner restaurant, but it’s an idea.”
  • Some ideas from peaches: “Concerning GF restaurants, are there any Indian middle eastern or vegetarian restaurants in the area? From what I understand there are a fair amount of people from India and Pakistan living in the area, and some of their dishes are GF. None of the chains are going to have very many GF options.You can also go to yelp and put in a zip code and gluten free, and there are several options mentioned”
  • Nora says: “Texas Roadhouse offers gluten free options.”

Jewel

  • Jane says: “Plus there is a store coupon for 50c/1 EE cereal on the front of the Big Book that expires 10-28 [to go with this $1.00/1 manufacturer printable]. Would be great if these are on sale or in the clearance section. I think I saw some priced at just $2 last time I looked but am not sure of the dates on that?”
  • And peaches adds: “When I was there Saturday they had the crunchy nuggets cereal on sale for $2.00″

Magazines

  • DON comments: “I HIGHLY suggest the magazine ORGANIC GARDENING, the only magazine I consistently renew. This magazine comes every other month and is packed with excellent information. This is a great price and as I just found out, I subscribed for 2 years and before checkout was offered a third year for $4.99 which I took advantage of as well. This magazine is straight forward without the fluff and propaganda or speculation, just true and tested info. You will not be disappointed and will feel good offering this on your coffee table.”

Meijer

  • A report from findin’deals: “Suave Professionals reg size shampoo/conditioner is $2.99. Large is $5.19. If purchasing regular size, cashier may adjust one of the $2 coupons to $1.49 to match $1.49 sale price”
  • Sanee is wondering: “A question to any other shoppers of Meijer in St.Charles….Has anyone else had an inconsistent experience with using ‘competitor coupons?’ I carry the policy with me for this reason, but had a horrible experience last night trying to use a target coupon with a manufacturer. I talked with corporate a LONG time ago to make sure the policy was being interpreted correctly and was reassured, but even the “big” manager last night said they can’t accept both and, ‘we’ll do it this time….’ any suggestions?? To my knowledge the policy hasn’t changed….??”

Reader requests

  • Don posts on Facebook: “ISO bread bowls like those at Panera without the Panera price…. any grocery stores etc. sell these?”
  • Lisa is wondering about the tanks on Tanga: “Has anyone gotten these? I’m tall and am concerned they’ll be short…”
  • Meg responds: “I haven’t bought these specifically, but I’ve bought a couple of different variety packs of shirts from Tanga and I’ve been disappointed every time. The quality is not good and the colors are usually weird. Not worth it for me.”
  • From Outlander: “have you heard of some survey site called Paradigm Sample? Just got an email from them. Thanks!”

Walgreens

  • On the Viva deal, letsshop says: “Printed (2) $1/1 coupons for Viva from Jill site ,in case no one seen her blog ! and happy my store had plenty (: so 41.5 per roll”

Whole Foods

  • A heads up from Judy S.: “The $1 coupon on the Imagine site is no longer available. The 17.3 oz soups are $2 in Deerfield.”

Print now save later — Popcorn and pop at Jewel — or not

orvillepop

Update: This coupon prints with an “available at Walmart” logo on it, so per Jewel’s unfortunate summer 2014 coupon policy update, they won’t take it. Sorry, guys!

Starting Wednesday 10/22 at Jewel, buy one 3 pack of Orville Redenbacher’s microwave popcorn, get another pack AND two 2-liters 7-Up type pops (specifically lists Canada Dry TEN) for free. Well, since Jewel allows coupons on both items in a BOGO sale, print yourself two of these new $1.00/1 TEN coupons (must share) for a nice deal.

No prices in the ad — I’m going to GUESS Orville runs about $3.69, so you could get two boxes and two 2-liters for around $1.69 after instant savings and two $1.00/1 coupons.

Amazon

  • Debbie emails: “Hey just a heads up.  I ordered some games from the vintage Hasbro sale.  I thought frustration free packing meant no annoying plastic clamshells that are so hard to open.  What it means is no packaging at all. Just the plain brown box its shipped in. Games and instructions were in loose plastic bags stuffed in the mailing box. I wanted these for gifts and was very disappointed.” Interesting, I ordered a vacuum listed as “frustration free” and it still came in its original box inside another box perfectly fitting around it. Not sure what frustration I was freed from….

Coupons

  • If you want more than just your freebie, maggie points out: “There’s a 50 cents off 2 coupon for Ortega in the 9/28SS”

CVS

  • A Coke deal report from ally: “Out here in NW IN doesn’t work anymore- the sodas are just $3 (not from the $5 price :( so have to buy more to get to $15″

Food information

  • Anne shares: “I subscribe to the CSPI’s Nutrition Action Healthletter.  www.cspinet.org/nah/index.htm  This month (October), they had an article on sugar substitutes, and they rated aspartame as an “avoid” and sucralose as a “caution”.  They cited studies that linked aspartame to cancer and sucralose to leukemia (study not published yet).  The article is not available yet on their website, but I highly recommend a subscription to this newsletter.  It helps cut through the hype on nutrition and health studies.”
  • And peaches adds: “I used to subscribe to Nutrition Action, and I got it on their website for $10 a year. I let my subscription lapse. even though I love the newsletter. I got an offer from them a few months ago to let me renew for $8 for one year. I might resubscribe if the offer is still good. When I clicked on the link that somebody gave, it looked like the price for a one year subscription had gone up to $20. They are totally unbiased, and they look at all the research out there before they pan something. Often times they will pan a study that receives a lot of publicity, and they will say why the study is not valid.”

Jewel

  • A find from Rachel: “Just got back from jewel. They had chi chi’s salsa on sale for $1.50. With the $1 off coupon from coupons.com makes a great deal!”
  • A tip from Christina on Facebook: “I went to jewel today for the honey crisp apples that are on sale for $1.29/lb. I was planning on buying quite a few but when I got there they only had a small amount and none of them looked good. I asked if they had anymore and it took some time but they brought out brand new, in the box, chilled and fresh apples. They looked amazing. Just a hint to your readers… ask for more of something if the produce doesn’t look too great! The ones that were out were not even worth the sale price!”

Loyalty programs

  • Valentina S. shares: “Free Kellogg’s codes from freebies4mom.com/kfr/ FREEPOINTSFRENZY (100 points) added 10/13 * UGOTTALOVEABONUS (100 points) added 10/13 * WEHEARTSURPRISES (100 points) added 10/13 * 3CHEERS4BONUSPTS (100 points) added 10/13 * HOORAYFORFREEPTS (100 points) added 10/13 * ELVESLOVEBONUSES (50 points) added 10/9 * MAGICOFBREAKFAST (20 points) added 10/9″

Meijer

  • A heads up from Marion regarding a deal shared yesterday: “Unfortunately I don’t think the $5/2 tq is a match to the smaller sized bags of food. Maybe the cat but definitely not the dog.
  • A question from KRISTINA on the Scrubbing Bubbles Catalina: “Does anyone know how long this goes for?”

Restaurants

  • SmartShopper shares: “I just called and the Palatine Domino’s location is also participating from noon – 1:40pm. I was told to order on-line or come into the store. No phone orders. Here is the address for those in this area: STORE #2721 450 E Dundee Rd Palatine, IL 60074 (847) 359-4200″

You have the choice of either free shipping or they will send you the 2014 cards right away. I chose to get the 2014 cards. www.alacardchicago.com/buy_online.html I bought the cards last year when you posted a Living Social deal and found I liked them much more than the Entertainment Book. Good way to discover some restaurants.”
  • On the Domino’s $1 promo, Ginger comments: “I called the dominos by me in Mokena and they are doing this so call your local one to see.”
  • And Jane says: “I called my store and they said it was from between 12:40- 1:40 PM for the deal. I bet your store will offer this as well.”
  • Then she follows up: “…and called another store near me and they said the time was 12 noon to 1:40PM. Also, the guy said you could pick between hand tossed or thin. I expect a huge line if people hear about this!” So definitely check with your store to confirm participation and time!
  • Also, Koupon Kat reports: “I ordered from the Lisle Domino’s last night and there was a flyer promoting this attached to the box.”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle asks: “ALSO is anyone else experiencing issues printing from the iPhone coupons.com app to wireless HP printers since upgrading to iOS 8? I have an HP wireless 6600 and have printed to it tons and tons of times from both an iPhone 5S and my old iPhone 4. Well Apple stopped supporting the iPhone 4 with iOS 8, so that still has iOS 7 on it. The last couple times I’ve tried printing coupons using the app on my iPhone 5S, it says it can’t locate any printers at all. Nothing has changed about my wifi network nor the printer settings. The coupons.com app from my iPhone 4 (still running iOS7) can still print just fine. Just wondering if anyone else has experienced this. I tried to contact them to ask but their support leaves much to be desired.. their default answer is often just “your printer must not be supported” when clearly that isn’t the problem. I’ve used both iphones to print to the same printer on the same network tons of times over a year period.”
  • Debbie is wondering: “Our Champaign Walmart doesn’t carry the Reynolds baking cup. Do you know of any other stores that do?” I have bought them at Jewel, but not recently.
  • Sara replies: “I believe Mariano’s carries Reynolds baking cups.”
  • Kristin posts on Facebook: “I know this has come up before, what is the name of the carpet place in Round Lake that people have recommended for area rugs? Thanks!”

Target

  • Maureen reports on TRESemme: “The ad is misleading. The deal only works on the 32 oz. keratin shampoo and conditioner marked at 4.99. The others are part of the spend $40 on select top brands get $10 gift card.”
