Deals of the day

  • From Kristina: “I think this is a great deal. LocalFlavor.com has $20 to spend at Zoo City Treats in Brookfield for just $10. Use code SIZZLE and get another $5 off! (Promo Code Not Valid on Outlet Deals or Local Flavor Gift Bucks. May be used more than once; one deal per transaction.)”

Goodwill

  • A suggestion from Karen: “For anyone who cant get this binder on line; I find binders like this at Goodwill fairly often. They are priced around $1-$2.”

Jewel

  • Jane comments: “Jewel registers are still not working properly. I also got 3 of each Muller type BUT I found a printable coupon in my purse that was about to expire and instead of using the other MyMixx one I used my paper one. I was almost expecting the register to take off 50c but it didn’t take off the regular Muller one for me either. I will go back and get more later to “try” to use that last MyMixx plus I did get the email finally for the BOGO when you take a survey. Those will only be 25c after the BOGO coupon. Also, my friend went tonight to get the Unilever deal and none of the Dove’s were working on the instant $5 deal. She said all of them were clearly marked on the shelves but the $5 would not come off. She did 4 orders and they were well over the $15 mark on them all. I felt bad for her because she had her 2 small kids with her and it was a headache at the registers. So watch your registers closely, if you have many more items in your order you may miss it!”
  • And from Maria S.: “Just like Jane, I also had two $1/3 coupons for the Muller yogurt in my MyMixx. Yesterday, I bought 3 regular Muller and 3 Greek 100. I scanned the Greek 100 first and the $1/3 MyMixx came off, then scanned the regular ones and did NOT get my second $1/3. (The buy 6, save $3 did come off.) Be prepared to have a printout of your MyMixx or be able to show it on your smartphone.”
  • A heads up from Pam: “For the SunRype fruit strips: be sure to check the expiration date. When I got home, I realized some expired in April and in May.”
  • A Catalina alert from Laura: “This printed from the register at Jewel today. Buy Barilla Gluten Free Pasta between 8/3/15 and 8/30/15 and Save up to $2 on a future order with coupon. Buy 2 and receive $1. Buy 3 and receive $1.50. Buy 4 or more and receive $2 on your next order.”

Target

Walmart

  • Kari O. does not recommend the cheap futon at Walmart: “We had this…. Emphasis on HAD. It is the most uncomfortable thing, ever. Just sitting on it hurts your booty, so sleeping on it is a nightmare for your back. It was donated after a month.”
  • Laura concurs: “I had a similar one and had the same experience. It also broke quickly. The springs broke through the bottom with just normal use.”

  • Also from Laura: “There is a coupon for $1 off Pepperidge Farm Brightside Soft Baked Granola bars on coupons.com under zip code 31705. There is also a $1 rebate on Ibotta.”

Jewel

  • From peaches: “I was just at the new Whole Foods store in Evanston tonight. It is a beautiful store. It is much nicer than the Dominick’s that used to be there. They have a wine bar in the store, and they also have a gelato bar there. They were very busy tonight, and after I left there, I drove down to the Jewel store down the street, which was not nearly as busy. Jewel had organic tomatoes on sale for $.99 a pound, and they had organic kale on sale for $.79 a pound, as well as organic strawberries on sale 2/$5, and the strawberries were driscoll. . .”
  • John W shares: “My MyMixx had a Muller corner yogurt coupon, $1 off 3, which makes it 3 for 50 cents as part of the buy 6, get $3 deal. Also a $1.25/2 Mitchell’s 14 oz. ice cream, which are 2/$5 this week.”
  • Jane replies: “My MyMixx has 2- $1/3 coupons, one for the Greek 100’s and the other just says Muller yogurt on it! Thank You for reminding me, because I have been waiting for my BOGO coupon when you sign up for their email but nothing is coming? I am excited about 17c yogurts!”
  • And peaches found: “Kemp’s frozen yogurt is still 2/$6, and I have a $1 off two coupon on mymixx. I did not get the Muller coupon on my mymixx.”
  • Jane asks: “How is the Smuckers natural PB? We are low on PB and wanted to get some for the buy 6 sale. Its either that or Jif Whips for that price this week at Jewel.” $1.49 after instant savings on the buy six save $3.00 sale.
  • Christine replies: “I like the Natural Smuckers, but my kids don’t like the oil on the top and stirring it around. I like the peanut taste and not as sweet.”
  • And from Laura: “Try storing the jar upside down. All the oil will be at the bottom of the jar next time you open it.”
  • If you happen to pick up Smucker’s topping and brownie mix at the Jewel anniversary sale this week, Suzann suggests: “The caramel Smuckers ice cream sauce is very good swirled into chocolate brownies with extra chopped pecans–I call these turtle brownies– when it is that cheap you can be generous( for 13x 9 pan I would use slightly more than half a bottle maybe more now since the sizes are constantly shrinking).”

Restaurants

  • Today was half price cheeseburger today, and Artie shares: “They will be running this same promotion on Thursday August 13 “National Back to School Day”. I have the flyer in front of me.”
  • Elizabeth shares A&W National Root Beer Float Day on August 6, 2015 — free small root beer float! Read more here.

Pork back ribs $1.88 lb.Pineapples $1.88 each. Kellogg’s cereals,Pleasant View milk,Jays potato chips,Chips Ahoy cookies advertised for 1.99 are 1.88 as is”

Shopping the Jewel anniversary sale today

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

jewel-anniversary

Stopped by Jewel this morning to check out the anniversary sale, and here are some things to look for:

  • If you’re buying the $.99 Kraft BBQ sauce, look for $1.00/2 peelies. Also the ones I saw have new packaging and now no HFCS! (Still tons of sugar, but now actual sugar at least.)
  • Only the plain vanilla Pillsbury frosting was priced at $1.25 on the buy six save $3.00 instant savings deal. All the other varieties were tagged for the instant but priced and rang at $1.79, so would be $1.29 after instant rather than $.75.
  • Look for $1.00/2 tearpads by Smucker’s ice cream toppings. They’re $1.17 on the instant savings deal wyb six mix/match items, so just $.67 after coupon + instant.
  • If you’re buying Quaker on the instant savings deal, look for $1.00/2 peelies (I saw on granola bars and Life cereal).
  • NONE of the Dove was tagged. I scanned a bunch and found that the shampoo and conditioner in tubes are not $3.00, but the ones in bottles are.

jewel729

I also used my Frigo rainchecks from the $2.50 mozzarella + free tomatoes deal a couple of weeks ago plus the $1.00 Frigo insert coupons that are about to expire (and some random MyMixx coupons I’d forgotten about also came off my order, oops). But all of the above came to $16.14 after instant savings + coupons — see the full Jewel matchups for this week here.

*** 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.

Amazon

  • Suzann comments on the Fancy Feast cans deal: “That is a deal–I have not seen that price on Fancy Feast cans in a long time(probably a decade) and that was when a store was closing.”

Children’s Place

Focus groups

  • One from northwesternly: “For you “Super Couponers” who can spare the time, just saw this on Craigslist: (posted shortly after midnight, Tues 7/28). $300 for a 4 hr In-Home interview on Super Couponing. “Do you regularly clip coupons and find online deals? Do you have a great way to store and organize the coupons you’ve found? We’d like to learn more from you about how you find the best deals.” Jump & Associates is looking for you. To see more and apply –> http://chicago.craigslist.org/chc/etc/5144393988.html — They seem legit; located at 1 N LaSalle, Suite 1800, Chgo.”

Jewel

  • On the Buddig coupon stack, Linda comments: “I had the $1/5 coupon in my my is account, and used the checkout51 offer the other day. They were originally $.79 each at Jewel.”

Mariano’s

  • From letsshop on the $1.00 Crest toothpaste question: “My Mariano’s in Western Springs happened to have about a dozen left at $1 they are not going to carry that particular flavor of paste any longer ,so I was able to buy all the amount that he had left .”

School supplies

  • On the earlier question on brand name school supplies, Rebecca comments: “Yes, when a teacher’s list specifies the brand, it’s for a reason – because they have found it’s the brand that works best, and, as someone noted, because it’s more than likely that it’s all going in a group container anyway. Crayola is always tops. Stay away from Rose Art crayons, and don’t do generic pencils. Your kid will spend more time re-sharpening than writing, LOL.”
  • TracyS concurs: “DO NOT USE THE MARKERS FROM MENARDS!!!! They didnt even all work straight out of the package. As for black pens at Menards, I found some in the Niles/morton grove store.”
  • And Karen says: “The Menards in Hanover Park had plenty of stock for both blue and black pens.”

Target

  • A find from SoapboxTray: “Target has a 20% off Save on clearance car seats, strollers and play yards All clearance items in Dept 30/Class 9. I found a $179. Safety 1st convertible car seat marked down to $50ish and after 20% $43. Can’t find something this nice even on Craigslist for this price. They had some really nice clearanced play yards at the Lake Zurich store and strollers.”
  • A question on the Cartwheel pop deals from ellen: “i have 2 $3.00/1 12 pk coke from mcr. has anyone used coke coupons with this deal? I am wondering if I would get the full $3.00 off 2 of the 12 packs and if it would take the 35% off the full amount or after the coupons.”
  • And from Kari O.: “Yes, Crayola is specifically listed because of its high quality. My teacher friend was complaining about generic “washable” markers that stained kids and had parents upset. Also, it helps prevent parents from buying special hello kitty or spiderman themed markers and then watching the kids freak out when they are all mixed into one group marker bucket. PS: I know you are talking about markers, but in general I believe in using high quality art supplies. http://wgntv.com/2015/07/09/group-finds-asbestos-in-childrens-crayons-toy-crime-lab-kits/ I know it’s pretty unlikely but I would rather not be the parent who buys the cool TMNT crayons instead of Crayola and accidentally exposes the children to asbestos.”

Whole Foods

  • On the Illinois-only Whole Foods deals to celebrate the new Evanston store opening, Judy shares: “There is a $1/1 MC for 16 oz glass bottles of Honest Iced Tea in the Spring Mambo Sprouts booklet that Fresh Thyme gave out making it free. The coupon expires 7/31.”
