Auto Show

  • Charlotte sent this,”if you’re looking to go to the Auto show, check with your local Chevy dealer for free tickets. In the past I’ve had to fill out forms to get the tickets, but this year they just gave them to me. Keep in mind that parking is $14-22.”

Dunkin Donut

Home Depot

  • Charlotte, “The Home Depot in Bolingbrook had (up to) 75% off pet food today. I saw large (30-40lbs?) bags of Pedegree Pal for $8/bag.”

Jewel

  • Diane asks a question about the Free Mama Lucia Meatballs, “Am I looking in the wrong place?  I went to the Westmont Jewel because I had a lot of coupons from that week and they were marked $3.99.  I was looking in the frozzen food meat aisle.”
  • Kay replies, “They are in the case along the back wall”
  • Caroline sent some information, “The (old Jewel) cards still generate Catalinas, tho. I scanned my card, got a “welcome MyMaxx user” and 3-4 Cats”

Meijer

  • Liz reports on a Wonderful Pistachio deal,”Meijer has 16 oz on sale for 5.99, its a 2 day sale plus 5% off on mperks..I think I will run over there  ty for the heads up! I called around wanted to get some quick before snap runs out”

Online Shopping

  • Brandy comments on the Crocs deals, “I just bought two pairs (black and brown) and really like them… but I’m a size 8 (in ALL shoes), but had to take these back and get a size 7. No 1/2 sizes. It’s $7.50 to ship back (buyer pays return shipping) for exchange or return, but you can exchange or return free at any Crocs store (not retailer, STORE). There’s one at the Aurora outlets, so I exchanged there and was able to try on. Good return and exchange policy and I like that these clean easily, will last forever and look cute with dressier clothes.”
  • Focadima also has a comment, “I bought these flats at 6pm before Christmas– I am a 6.5 so i ordered a 7 wayyyyy too big. So I gave them to dd and bought myself a 6- a bit too small :( BUT I am wearing them  and they are stretching more each time.very comfy and keep my foot warm even without socks”

Restaurants

  • VB reports, “Not sure if you posted about this… It is restaurant week!!!  I have never heard of this so I am so excited about this.  You can get Lunch (most are 3 courses) for $22 and dinner for $33 or $44 at some fancy schmancy (well at least to me they are) restaurants.  It goes from 1/30 to 2/12 (maybe plan an early Valentine’s dinner to beat the crowds and get a good deal!). Has anyone done this? How was it?  It says to call and reserve so I am wondering if the restaurants limit the number of reservations for this deal.”
  • Peaches comments, “I have never done restaurant week, but I have heard that you can get some really good deals on lunch at high end restaurants that you would not be able to afford any other time.  You can purchase a lunch for $25, at a restaurant that would cost you $150 to purchase a dinner any other week.  As far as I know they do not limit the number of reservations they make during restaurant week.  Probably 90% of the restaurants are in Chicago though.  There are only 11 restaurants in the whole Northern suburbs participating in restaurant week, with four of them being in Evanston”

jewel-free-seltzer

So I stopped at Jewel today and tried out Jewel MyMixx, and it was super easy! After you sign up and load your coupons online or in the app, just punch in your phone number on the keypad at checkout while they are scanning your items and you can see the coupons come off right as items are scanned. Here’s my free Canada Dry Sparkling water, which, by the way, is tasty…

Deals I spotted at the Glen Ellyn store

freesalad

Here are a few deals I spotted — May vary by location.

  • Iceberg garden salad was tagged $.99 through 2/3. Free with the $1.00/1 coupon from the January big book of savings.
  • They had the baby bok choy that was on sale last week, now clearanced at $.49/lb. I got some. Now what should I make with it, hmm.

Look what returns to Jewel on February 4 — no, not the freezer promo (they don’t do that anymore) — it’s… it’s… Yes, it’s the MONOPOLY game. Are you:

A) SO SO SO EXCITED!
B) So fed up with all the fiddly little bits of paper.
C) So-so.
D) Other.

jewel9.jpg

This week at Jewel, frozen Margaritaville breaded shrimp are on sale BOGO at $8.99. There’s a new $1.00/1 printable coupon here that should allow you to get two for $6.99 after using two coupons — handy if you long ago reached the print limit on the one on the Margaritaville site!

Free Mama Lucia Meatballs at some Jewel stores

meatballs

Update – OK, so it may ONLY be the Westmont store, since no one else is finding them tagged this price. :(

——

Kay sends over this photo of Mama Lucia meatballs tagged $1.00 at the Westmont Jewel (Ogden & Cass) through 2/21, making them free with the $1.00/1 coupon in the 1/11 RP. These were not tagged at several other Jewels, so it looks like a sale at select locations only. If you spot them on sale for $1.00 at your store, please comment with the location — thanks!

  • Comment on any post where it seems to fit.
  • Post on the Facebook Wall.

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.

Catalinas

  • From Sarah, “Just a heads up on the Farm Rich catalina.  I received the notification in the past week or so when checking out at Meijer.  It is valid on 16 oz or larger so double check your sizes!”

Jewel

  • Lynn comments on Deals of the Week, “On the buy 4 Canada Dry, get 2 free Orville Redenbacher 3-packs, note that the OR is BOGO, so you get; 4 popcorn and 4 sodas for $3.96.  The machine didn’t want to take my coupon and I didn’t argue (“too few items purchased”), but I think you should be able to stand your ground and use 2 $1 q’s and get the whole thing for $1.96!  I could be out of date on Jewel’s coupon policy, but think that’s right.”
  • Dani has suggestion for using your Mymixx number on Savingstar, “ok.  I just entered mymixxx phone number in both tabs and it worked.  So, if you are new to saving star, you just register for mymixx and then go to savingstar and added “new card” which would be your mymixx number.  I figure if I don’t have to carry around a card, then I will register for savingstar.”

Meijer

  • Feelgood has a comment on the Two Day Sale, “Check your stash for Jack’s Pizza $.75/1 printables from a few months ago. They had very long expiration dates, mine don’t expire until 3/31/15.”
  • More on deals of the week from Feelgood, “Another good advertised deal this week is Kraft 12 oz Cheese Singles for $2.00. There’s an mPerks coupon (exp 1/31/15) for $1.00 off, making it just $1.00.” and “Went shopping to the Homer Glen Meijer Wednesday night and scoped out the Farm Fresh, regular shelf price is $5.99 each. If you do the deal Friday or Saturday using the mPerks 5% off, the deal for three would be $11.98, minus $.60 (5% off) = $11.38. Minus two $1.50/1 coupons = $8.38, minus a $5.00 OYNO, for a net cost of $3.38, or $1.13 each!”
  • Some coupons to look for from Feelgood, “Also check your stash for DiGiorno B2G1F printables from about a month ago, mine expire 1/31/15.  Figuring on buying in sets of three, paying $9.00 after coupon, and getting a $2.00 OYNO, for a net cost of $7.00, or $2.33 each.”

Reader Requests

  • Nilo answers a question about the Canon Laser Printer from yesterday, “couponnurse, i have a canon pixma too and i use remanufactered ink in it only. i stick with ink for dummies as that one does work in my printer. i have used a different on (don’t remember the name) and it did not work. maybe try a different one.”
  • Artie also has a response, “Couponnurse,I have used Canon printers for over 20 years,used generic ink and have never had problems. I currently buy them on Amazon from a company called  TonerPlusUSA and end up paying less than $1.00 a cartridge for a Canon MX892 printer.”
  • SoapboxTray has a question on Midweek Meal Planning, “Question on this topic, does anyone use an app or anything to keep track of what is stored in freezers? I have 3 freezers and am always digging around trying to figure out what I have meat wise. Curious if something with scanning bar codes… would be nice. Maybe wipe boards in my basement by the freezer? Would love to know how others keep track. Thanks!”

Target

  • Cindy points out a deal to go with the Cheap Hot Chocolate, Cheap Cookies deal, “There is also a 10% off 10 count Swiss Miss Cocoa on cartwheel.
  • Kay asks about the cookie deal, “Has anyone done the Keebler cookie deal with any cookies other than the S’mores? The Sandies did not work at my Target.”

Heads Up

  • Julie sent this, “A heads up to anyone who stocked up on Quaker Instant Oatmeal last October at Jewel when they had the big Quaker sale with the $1/2 tearpads out.  My hubby opened a new box of Apples and Cinnamon and found weird black/brown moldy stuff at the top of most of the pouches near where they are glued shut.  The date code on the box was JUN 07 15 L2 45.  You can see the weird stuff up in the top of the pouch even without opening them.  If you have any boxes with this date code, I would recommend contacting Quaker.  My husband posted a photo to their wall when he contacted them in case anyone has this date code but isn’t sure what to look for.  We have some other boxes with different codes and they don’t seem to be affected.”

Jewel

Mariano’s

  • Soapboxtray sent a use for the New Morningstar Farms coupon catalina deal, “I used the coupons today at Mariano’s they usually have the same cat deals but I didn’t get anything. Coupons doubled though so I ended up paying approx 1.19-1.58 a box after doubles.”

  • Liz found these deals, “at the Niles Meijer, stove top turkey flavor stuffing is 1.25 with a 1.00 off 1 mperk coupon for .25 stuffing, there is also a 1.00 off 1 mperk for dole dippers and they have chocolate almond on clearance for 1.99 making them .99,  They also have on clearance jalapeno poppers(frozen case on end) normally 10.99 on clearance for 5.49 by Farm Rich 38 oz….I had a 1.50 coupon from a recent insert”
