Amazon

CVS

  • If you also get this from the magic coupon machine, Kelly comments: “My CVS had Finish gelpacs and power balls 25 ct boxes on sale for $4. Today the magic machine gave me a $1.50 off one Finish or Cascade dish detergent. Combined that with the 50 cent coupon off Finish Gelpac/Powerball from recent Sunday paper and paid $2.00 for the box. Almost as good as the $2.15 coupon!”

Home Depot

  • If you’re going today and want to match the Menard’s 11% rebate through 4/18, feelgood notes: “For the 11% match, Home Depot does it by mail. You get a Home Depot Gift card after you submit a rebate form and copy of your Home Depot receipt. Here’s the rebate form.”

Jewel

  • Something to look for from Kelly: “So, Jewel has this weird deal going on this week where you buy 2 Twizzlers ($1.77 each) and get $1 off Jewel 24pk water bottles ($2.49- $1=$1.49). Well, at the display by the entrance at the North Wheaton Jewel, they had buy 1 get 1 free tear pads on the Twizzlers. So paid $3.26 for all 3.”

Meijer

  • From joan: “If you still have McCormick 75 cents off coupons use at Meijers ,I used mine for salt grinder ,had only 6 so took a pass on one free when you buy 10 , so 25 cents each ,very happy(:”
  • Valentina S. comments: “I stopped by CS and got approved stack of printable Target and MQs $1.00/2 Red Baron pizza which is on sale now at Meijer, 2/$6.00.”
  • More problems with coupons + mPerks $/$$ off, from feelgood: “Went to the Homer Glen Meijer tonight, what a disaster! Wanted to use the $10/$75 mPerks. Rang up over $75 in groceries at the full-serve, the $10 came off. Had a manufacturer coupon for a free Smart Ones smoothie, it rang up $2.19, only $1.17 came off from that coupon. Had a $1.00/2 and a $2.00/3 Stouffers manufacturer coupon, neither one came off, although the cashier was quick to throw them in her drawer. And those were only 3 coupons, I had about 12-15 more to go. Supervisor was called over, she’s telling me since I already got $10 off, any coupons I use are prorated. I told her what’s the point of giving me $10 off, then taking it back by shortchanging my coupons. Left everything behind and walked away.”

Menards

  • Be forewarned if you are looking at the free-after-rebate Green Envy house wash in tomorrow’s ad. Charlotte found: “Just on a note on the Green Envy Housewash (I know it’s free, but still) 1 star across the board.”

Reader requests

  • nilo asks: “I need help trying to find a stay at home job, any suggestions?”

Walmart

  • Looking at the Persil detergent sale + coupon? From Charlotte: “We used Persil at times when we lived in the Netherlands (20 years ago… I feel so old now). It’s laundry detergent. Then again, I’m not picky about my detergents :P… Aha! Also, it used to be Dixan, which is a brand I’m VERY familiar with, they must have re-branded during the time we lived in the Netherlands. Anyway, I was highly allergic to Dixan, so I won’t be getting Persil. :P

I just opened up all 18 of my Monopoly tickets from this morning’s shopping trip and I’m a BIG WINNER of one free can of Chef Boyardee, lol. (Hey, given that all I’ve won so far is… more tickets… I guess that is a step up. Mr. 8 will be pleased, anyway.)

So I’m curious: Have any of the rest of you won anything good yet?

If you’re curious: Jewel has posted a list of the “big” winners so far here.

Cheap pork roast is already in the Crock-Pot shopping

jewel417

Stopped by Jewel this morning to get the $.99/lb pork roast for slow cooker pork carnitas tonight! (Some of my savings were negated by the overpriced Flatout, but I didn’t have time to make another stop and get dinner going in time to eat at a reasonable hour…) The Lombard Jewel also had a bunch of Apple Dole Fruit Squish’ems on clearance for $.98, so free after the $1.00/1 in the 4/12 SS. I bought three, and will bring back coupons to post redeem.

3 clearance Dole Squish ‘ems, $2.94. Will post redeem three $1.00/1 from the 4/12 SS.
Clearance Wild Harvest organic cocoa mix, $1.00.
2 Flatout flatbread, $7.98. Used BOGO coupon + $.50/1 coupon here.
Essential Everyday sour cream, $1.50.
9 Chobani Greek 100 yogurt cups, $7.92. Used three $1.00/3 coupons: Print $1.00/3 Chobani Greek 100 here. Print $1.00/3 Chobani Greek here.
8 lb pork roast, $7.93.
2 Fresh Express salad blends, $3.00. Used two $1.00/1 from the April big book of savings.

Paid $22.34, but will get back $3.00 when I post-redeem Squish ‘ems coupons to make that $19.34. Are you going this weekend for the three-day sale, too?

Reader deals 4/15/15: Here are the deals, heads up, and requests you shared over the last 24 hours — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

  • Email Rachel: [email protected]
  • Comment below, or on any post where it seems to fit.
  • Post on the Mashup Mom Facebook page.

*** If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

American Express

  • A great find from feelgood: “For those with American Express credit cards, go to your account online and check your offers at the bottom of the page. On 4 of my 5 AMEX cards, there was an offer for $20 off an Amazon purchase of $20 or more!”

Contacts

  • If you’re looking at getting contacts from Canada as per the suggestion in yesterday’s Reader Deals, Heather is curious: “Meg, did you submit it to your insurance? Just curious if insurance would cover contacts from Canada”
  • Meg replies: “No, I don’t have vision insurance. But if you have a medical FSA, I bet they would reimburse it. I’m pretty sure contacts are a covered expense; I doubt it matters where you get them from.”

CVS

  • Doing the Honey Nut Cheerios deal? Maggie shares: “I was able to get a great deal today, since I still had the BOGO coupon from a box of Cheerios a while back. It took off $4 but combined with another 50 cents off coupon, I paid almost $4 but got $6 back in ECB. That doesn’t happen too often these days, so a good day for me. :) Just a reminder for those of you who still have one of those “box coupons” in your wallet! By the way, after getting 2 boxes my receipt does NOT say that I met the limit… Anyone know what the limit is for this deal?”
  • Liz replies: “I saw somewhere it was 3″ I think so — my receipt is showing one to go.

Food 4 Less

  • Sandra warns: “Heads up, check your receipt if you do the buy 4 save $4 instant. I was at F4L this morning and 6 of my 36 items did not receive the $1 discount. CS gave me a $6 store credit and said that earlier none of the discounts had been working. Most had been fixed, but they figured some had still been missed which is why 6 of my items didn’t come off. It was a mixture of some of the Kraft cheeses and some of the Snak Saks that caused the issue with me. Oh, and check the shreds for $1/2 peelies. :)

Jewel

  • Check your local Jewel ad for a separate flyer for select stores, per letsshop: “Some Jewel’s have banana’s 29 cents pound ,a separate flyer came in my paper .”

Mariano’s

  • If you’re still heading over today for double coupon Weds., Linda found: “Ken salad dressing is on sale for $2, doubling the $0.75 coupon a while back, and get it for $0.50 a bottle, not bad!”
  • And one from Silvia: “Mt olive has .75 off any item coupons on the jars, get mild banana pepper rings 12oz jars for .49 cents!”

Meijer

  • From Joanne: “I don’t know if all Meijers suck – or if it’s just the Orland Park location. Here is one example of what has happened to me. 1) If I buy something and use a coupon – and then for whatever reason have to return it – they do not refund the coupon money – which I don’t have a problem with – what I do have a problem with is that the receipt I get shows that they gave me the entire amount – but they do not. Example: If I bought coffee for $8 and I had a $2 coupon – I’m paying $6 (plus tax). If I return it – my receipt shows that I received an $8 refund – when in reality they only give me the $6. I don’t like that the receipt doesn’t reflect the truth – it should show a $6 refund – since that’s all they are giving me. Has anyone else experienced this?”

99 Cents Only stores

  • From seachicago: “In case anyone has plans to take a “self-catered holiday” (aka rent a condo and cook) out west, I want to recommend the 99cents Only stores. They’re in some of the western states, and while they don’t take manufacturer coupons, I was really impressed with their prices. The stores are huge (2x Dollar Tree size), and filled with a lot of name brands. At least half the store is food, including produce and dairy, and name-brand bread. Some of the food sizes are smaller than at the grocery (but that’s often okay, since you usually only need a weeks-worth of condiments, etc. on vacation!), but a lot are full size. For instance, I bought 16 oz. strawberries, 14 oz. box of Kellogg’s cereal, 8 ct. name-brand thin bagels, 15 oz. Hellman’s light mayo, etc. BTW, everything is actually $1—as in 99.999 cents!”

Rebates

  • If you’re still waiting for your Smirnoff rebate, David comments: “Diageo rebate – been 10 weeks but I did get an email saying approved $60 on 4/3/15. Just called, said $40 has mailed. Yep so they will send an additional $20…
    in another month to process. Nice!!” See yesterday’s Reader Deals for other comments on this rebate.

Target

  • On the issues with Kleenex and the $10/$50 code with the Kimberly-Clark deal, Kelley comments: “I had the same problem as Kerri with the 10 off 50 at target. I just did a live chat and they took off the $10 since it shows on the ad as participating.”
  • Patty comments: “Update on Pantene deal- it’s still running; however, the hair gel tubes are now $4.59-$4.99, so not such a great deal.”

*** If you are sharing a deal from another site or an online coupon, please include the link. If you found a deal at a specific store, please include the location.

ALDI

  • Caroline on Facebook found: “YMMV Aldi has Starburst jellybeans for .25 a bag.”

Contacts

  • Meg shares: “I wanted to share something I just learned. I’ve been looking for a contact lens exam so that I can buy another year’s worth of my contact lenses. Most of those cheap exams at LensCrafters and the like do not cover contact lenses. And I stumbled across this little known (to me, anyway) fact: you do not need a valid prescription to purchase contact lenses in British Columbia. And online retailers located in BC will ship to the US. I was skeptical, but my years’ supply of Accuvue arrived today and they are exactly the same ones I’ve been wearing. The site I used was http://www.visionpros.ca and I just entered the prescription info off one of my current boxes of lenses. Of course, it’s recommended to get an eye exam every year. So I will probably still go get a $19 one just to ensure good eye health. But I won’t need the pricier contact lens exam, at least not every year.”

Dollar Tree

  • Print the new $1.00/2 Thomas’ coupon, because focadima comments: “My dollar tree also carries these by the brownberry bread”

Jewel

  • A find from Dee Clawed on Facebook: “Jewel is clearancing Mt. Olive Super Stacker dill pickles. They were marked $1.34 for large jars but rang up at .74 cents! There were also .55 cent coupons elastic-banded to the lids making for .19 cent big jars of pickles! Be careful as these are the long flat slice…not the quartered spears.”

Mariano’s

  • A confirmation of the $1.00 Crest toothpaste (use $3.00/3 in the 3/29 PG!) from Linda: “Saw the toothpaste at Mariano’s today. Still a dollar a tube. In a bin near the checkouts”
  • Print the reset So Delicious coupon, because SoapboxTray found: “So Delicious: These double perfectly at Mariano’s and yogurt are regular price 1.99 so free on Wednesdays. Yum!”

Meijer

  • On the cheap Lactaid milk at Target, feelgood points out: “Just an FYI, the free Fairlife 2% white and chocolate milk at Meijer this week are also lactose free.”

Reader requests

  • One from Coreena: “Hi! Need some help finding protective covers for an IPhone 6. Thoughts?? TIA!”
  • Laura asks: “Has anyone else noticed that all of the flavors of Dole Squish ‘ems have hard little pieces of rind or something in them. I’ve bought different packs thinking it was just that particular pack but the hard pieces are always in there. I’ve contacted the company and even sent in one of the hard pieces and all they do is send coupons for more of the product. They are on clearance at my local jewel and I think that is maybe why. None of the other brands of these applesauce pouches have this problem.”

Rebates

  • Jadeyzma replies to the Smirnoff rebate question from yesterday: “Feel good, I’m still waiting on my rebate for Smirnoff too…they are definitely behind this time. I did get an email saying that it has been received and being processed. Go online to check your status…it hasn’t taken this long in the past.”
  • But a heads up from Anne: “Just a heads up on the Smirnoff Rebate – make sure they send you the correct amount. I looked up to make sure I’d received my rebate (I had, about a month ago), BUT it was only for $40, not the $60 I was supposed to receive.”
  • Alicia says: “I got my Smirnoff a week or two ago. Yours should be on its way!”
  • And if you’ve been waiting for Kohl’s appliance rebates, good news from letsshop: “Wanted to mentioned received rebates from Kohls slow cookers deal ! Put all 4 rebates in one envelope because I was able to buy them at the store ,since they ran out of stock ! was sent in 2 CG in the amount of $40 ,took a extra 3 weeks because of stores type of receipts ): but all is well .”

Target

  • Another Easter clearance candy idea from Diane: “On the Target M & M’s, suprise I was at Target today too, LOL. Anyway, we had a buy a 9 oz or larger bag of M&M’s & get the crispy M&M’s free. I only had the Target $1/2 M&M coupon left, so got 4 bags of M&M’s ( 2 Easter & 2 Crispy) for .90 cents! No sure which insert, I think weekend of 4/12.” 4/12/15 RP.
  • And a clearance candy find from Caroline on Facebook: “And if you still have the Hersey $2/3 Easter candy coupon you can pick up bags of Cadbury mini-eggs at Target for .33 cents a bag for the 10 oz bags.”
  • If you’re having trouble with the codes for the Kimberly-Clark deal, a reminder from shirley: “The old code is missing a letter so try TGTE59AF. Make sure you enter this one first if your subtotal is like mine $55.xx. Hope this helps.”
  • If you’re still having trouble, vicki suggests: “Try TGTCDQH5″
  • A heads up from Kerri: “The Kleenex is still on the page but when you add to the cart and try to put the 10 off 50 coupon in it says you don’t have enough in your cart for that offer.”
  • And Chris shares on Facebook that: “A heads up for Super Target on Diehl in Warrenville: they are resetting dairy and frozen. Lots of frozen fish and desserts plus MP and Kraft cheeses today. Cashier told me to keep checking back all week, a lot more will go on clearance instead of moving it . Works for me!”

Walmart

  • A find from Nancy M.: “Colgate spinbrush in box with toothpaste at Walmart are ringing up $0.59.
    They had SpongeBob and Hello Kitty.”

Whole Foods

  • From Judy: “Mambo Sprouts has a DeBoles $1/1 coupon. Checkout 51 has $2/2, must be purchased in 1 transaction. Whole Foods has some DeBoles pasta on sale for $2.19 throught [today], 4/14. $.19 pasta. The boxes are only 8 oz.” I don’t have the DeBoles offer; check your Checkout 51 to see if you do.

Blue Bunny

  • Looking for Blue Bunny? Mandy says: “The Ultra in Lombard used to carry some Blue Bunny ice cream and the Walmart in Bloomingdale. I haven’t checked recently though.”
  • And jessica adds: “I know Tony’s sells the blue bunny. Shop and Save might sell it too, I haven’t shopped there for a while but they used to.”
  • And from Matt: “Walmart sells Blue Bunny and Ultra does too.”
  • Laura asks: “Has anyone seen the NEW Blue Bunny Dairy Free w/Almond Milk frozen pints? I read they come in about 4 flavors, would love to try them.”

Empire

  • On the Empire 50% off sale, Jovandi comments: “Empire was way overpriced for me 2bedrooms and a hallway $1000″

Jewel

  • Theresa found yet another ice cream changing over to frozen dairy dessert: “on the Friendly Ice Cream at Jewel picked up 2 on the weekend sale, but the ones I got say dairy dessert since no longer ice cream going to have to read the label better. I want ice cream and what is happening to the size 1.5 short fat containers.”

Rebates

Storage totes

  • Matt chimes in on the question of where to find cheap storage totes: “I’m a regular Good Will shopper and I usually find their totes are cracked, missing a top or incredibly overpriced (e.g. more than a new item would be). It never hurts to look at thrift stores. Menards will run promo deals on totes a couple times a year. I think they often have the 10 gallon ones for $2 or $3 when they are on sale. Or look for a store that has clearance on totes. I bought 5 fairly big totes from Staples just because they were $2 a piece on clearance and I happened to be in the store.”

Target

  • If you’re doing the crazy Kimberly-Clark paper products deal, Kari O. points out that: “The ship to home gift cards take FOREVER. I did it once and I had to call and complain because my gift card took over a month to come after the initial item purchased arrived. The electronic ones are a pain, but at least you get your $ faster. lol”

Warby Parker

  • TracyS:  “…bought from warby Parker last month. Picked out 5 pairs and decided I wanted to try one frame in a different color. So, headed to the store in Lincoln park, which is really cute. Lollipops in a big bucket, TV with vhs movies, recommended reading set below the shelves of glasses, and a free photo studio. Got great pics of my kids and they shipped the glasses to my house. $95 included anti scratch and anti glare.”
