You may have already noticed from the h-u-g-e ad this week, but Jewel is having a big anniversary sale! I talked about these P&G deals yesterday in the weekly Jewel coupon matchups, but the matchups were so long, and the deals are so good, that I wanted to pull them out separately for you — especially since some of the coupons you will need expire tomorrow 7/31.

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own 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.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Jewel

  • Kelly shares: “ALSO, a great deal on raspberries! Only $1. They are marked as 2/$4 but ring up at a $1. And darn it, they are NOT Driscoll’s but that would have been too good to be true! The cashier said they have been ringing up $1 yesterday and today (Monday) and didn’t know when or if that would change.”

Libraries

  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “By the bys, did you know that at least here in Bolingbrook, the library offers free kindle loans? I’m currently reading 50 shades of Grey, but I also saw they had big titles like Game of Thrones available. It’s a 2 week loan, but you can most likely loan it again and again. At least my $19 kindle is getting a work out :)

Reader requests

  • From Eliza: “Friends of the family just moved into the city (Gold Coast) – any suggestions on a good housewarming gift for a young couple with an 8 month old? I’d like something Chicago specific, maybe something fun to do for baby and SAHM to do, but I’m drawing a giant blank. TIA!”
  • Liza is wondering: “Do anybody know how to put all target giftcards together on the target app”
  • VB asks: “Help we need advice on lawn care. We have a really bad weed problem and some of them are the really prickly ones that are tough to pull out. The hubby thinks that we should call a landscaper but I am afraid of that price tag. I think we should attempt to take care of the problem ourselves but like I said it has gotten really bad. Any suggestions on products? I heard round up was good.”
  • A response from julie: “It will really depend on the type of weed, some respond well to weed and feed type treatments while other may not. As for Roundup, make sure which product you are looking at. Some of their products are for clearing everything, including the grass.”
  • Tammy adds: “Trimec Classic works great on weeds. Try and find the concentrate. Roundup will kill your grass.”

Target

  • Debbie reports: “I found the scotch tape back in the school supplies with the post-it notes (on the opposite side) for $1.02. It was a colored plastic. The coupon for the post-it notes wasn’t taking and the clerk said it was for a cube (pictured) but he manually put it through anyway. I didn’t see any cubes anyway. (Champaign Target)” See information on both deals here.
  • And gfamily95 sends over: “Saw this in the ‘back to school’  supply area. Scotch tape $1.02 signage. Used the $1.00 off Scotch tape or scissors item Target printable. Only .02 cents for Scotch tape! No issues or beeps! NOTE: coupon states, ‘one coupon or offer per guest.’”
    target scotch
  • On the ship to store deals, Beth confirms: “I did call and ask about manufacturers coupons because you can always go to CS after a transaction with your coupons and get reimbursed, but they said no, you couldn’t get reimbursed with an emailed receipt, just a register receipt, something about the way it’s scanned in or something. I was hoping to use the $1.50 off coupons as well as the free wipes coupon from this last sundays paper! Oh well, still a good deal on diapers!”
  • SoapboxTray emails: “I purchased 8 Downy Free & Gentle on price cut for $6.99 = $55.92. Minus the $10. discount for store ship. Minus $20. (2 $10. gift cards for 4 select purchases, btw other downy scents are included). Minus $2.30 for using Red Card. I will submit for the rebate another $10. *Minus another $10. *I also had the egift card from purchasing and picking up the 2 Bounty and 2 Charmin). OOP Paid $35.10 with tax. My total will end up being: $15.10 after rebate and gift cards. That is $1.89 a bottle. By the way I was too having issues with the store pickup selection but I waited until later on in the day and then it worked fine. It will actually be $10 less for me because I had that extra $10 gift card, but if you didn’t have it, you would pay 45.92 approx and then get $20 in GC and $10 on rebate. Hope that makes sense :) still comes to $15.10.”

Walgreens

  • On the L’Oreal Advanced deal, anna asks: “did any one try it?”
  • Laura reports: “I just did this L’Oreal shampoo/conditioner deal today (Tuesday). I did the above directions but bought the following: 1 shampoo $3.99 sale price 1 conditioner $3.99 sale price 2 hair spray $3.99 sale price each I only got ONE $1.50 RR and I think that this is due to the fact that I purchased two hairspray products and did not stick to just shampoo and conditioner. However, I did receive 6750 BR points! There is a Catalina printing on these products: L’Oreal Advanced Haircare Product, Any, Walgreens 7/7/2014 – 8/3/2014 Buy 2, Get $1.50 RR Buy 3, Get $3.00 RR The Catalina does say “ANY” so I’m not sure why I only received one $1.50 RR.”
  • A find from comicbob: “Walgreens had bottles of One-A-Day gummy vitamins on sale for $5.99. Use $3.00 off coupon from this weeks paper and get 3,000 points for buying 2.”

Walmart

  • From jackie on the Dr. Pepper deal: “Targets price is also 4/$10. I price matched at Walmart for this deal with no problems”
  • And something to look for from julie: “Dr. Pepper fans keep an eye out for any 12-packs you currently have with a Fandango movie promotion on the box. There are $0.55/1 2 liter and $1/1 12-pack or 2 2-liters on the inside of the box.”

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own 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.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Groupon

  • From julie: “FYI – we just ordered [the Sam's Club membership] a day or 2 ago and they mail the vouchers to your house. I’m not sure if they mail everyone’s or if I clicked the wrong option, but I wanted to give a heads up to anyone that wanted to activate and use the membership right away that you’ll need to wait for it to come in the mail.”

Jewel

  • From peaches: “The Kemp’s frozen  yogurt is not on sale anymore at Jewel.  I was just there tonight.”
  • On the D&W franks and sausages, Jane says: “Bourbonnais has a ton of books out BUT only chicken and hot dogs left, so $1.33 down to 50 cents each after coupon! I got several different varieties and they were all clearly marked on shelf.” *hint to others…if you don’t know where these are (like me!) they are in the Deli section and not in the regular meat or lunchmeat section. It took me 15 mins. to locate them this morning. Duh, and the seafood guy even had no clue where they were either!”
  • From feelgood: “I accidentally found this deal as I was poking around looking to redeem my expiring rainchecks for deli beef franks. Visited several Jewels, lower prices not marked at most stores, had to do a price scan to check for lower prices. I bought these for $3.00 each: smoked sausage cheddarwurst, black forest bratwurst, natural casing beef franks, uncured beef franks. Deli beef franks also $3.00, didn’t get any this time around. Saw 3 types of chicken sausages 3/$10, didn’t get any. Deli franks $2.50, made with beef and pork (no chicken filler), might be good. Found books in all the Jewels I visited this weekend: Lockport, Homer Glen, Lemont, and both Orland Park stores. Be careful and check your dates. Some sausages I got don’t expire until September. I also found some sausages with expired dates at several Jewels dating as far back as July 2nd!”
  • And a heads up from julie: “Check you dates!!!! We bought some last time they were on this sale and they were 1 week expired at the time. We didn’t notice the dates. They seemed to go bad on us within 24 hours after opening the package.”
  • A question from peaches: “Any books in the Evanston, Skokie, WIlmette area? I was in the Chicago Avenue store last night and they were out of books, and all they had were the chicken sausages and hot dogs. All I wanted was the chicken sausages anyway.”
  • Outlander comments: “I just checked my store, no books, but I had 5 Qs with me. I was happy to find the sausages (after a long search, since no one knew where they were :( ), only to see they were all expired within last week or two. Only one pack of Black Forest brats doesn’t exp. until 8/5, so I got that and will try it today. I got rainchecks for 10 Cheddarwurst, and 10 Black Forest brats. Now if I can only find the books! Does anyone have 15 extra Qs they can send me? I mean if your stores still have plenty of books. Please post if you can, I’d appreciate it!!! Thanks!!”
  • And diane also found expired: “No books at the Addison store& all they had were hotdogs. I picked up 5 different packages & all 5 were expired! Wood Dale store had all products as of noon today but also no books.”
  • CHRISTINE reports: “The hot dogs and sausages are on sale until 9/2.” Note they are in Wednesday’s ad at 2/$7.00 and Jewel sometimes pulls tags early, so wait at your own risk.
  • On the 7/31 expiration, Outlander says: “That doesn’t matter, if they were valid during the sale or when you got the raincheck. Even if I go a month from now to redeem my raincheck and use the Qs that exp. 7/31, I can still do it.” YMMV on that, although if you buy them now and post-redeem the coupons, they will take them up to 60 days as long as the purchase was before the coupon expired.
  • Laura reports: “Went today (Monday) for the Dietz & Watson hot dogs. Worked perfectly and got myself some nitrate free hot dogs for $1.00! Note: the hot dogs are not by the “regular” hot dog cooler area. At my Jewel, they are located near the Deli in a cooler.”

  • Kitty emails: ” If anyone has been having trouble getting to the Driscoll’s berry survey site, they have revamped it.  You can get to it by going to www.driscollspanel.com

  • Artie emails an article: Dollar Tree agrees to acquire Family Dollar Family Dollar Stores has agreed to be acquired by Dollar Tree for $74.50 per share, a 22.8% premium over Family Dollar’s closing price on Friday, both companies announced today.”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle wonders: “Does anyone know if they’ve seen Tortillaland uncooked tortillas around the Chicago area? I received a coupon in the mail to try one free but so far did not see that WM, Jewel or Food4Less carried them. Their site lists Meijer but it’s kinda far so I haven’t checked there yet.”
  • Callie asks: “Does anyone know if the P&G rebate will work with an amazon.com receipt? They are having a spend $50 get a $15 giftcard on certain products. I think you could combine that with the rebate to get 25 off…”
  • On the washer & dryer, liz is wondering: “So does anyone think this is a good deal?”
  • Jane is skeptical: “It says you are saving $1000 but it is still a “Kenmore” and I don’t care if it is made by Whirlpool (or another company) for Sears’ specs, you are still getting a Kenmore. I hate my Kenmore set, period. I bought it under the impression that it would be exactly like my old Whirlpool set (which I loved) but it is not the same! This set I’m sure is a better and newer model but I will go back to my old brand the next time I buy new. This is only my opinion and I am just putting in my 2 cents worth. Some people swear by Kenmore. It sure does look good on paper though, doesn’t it?”

Target

  • Melissa A reports: “Adult size S-sport shoes ranged in price from 34.99 to 39.99 at the Oswego Target”
  • Krystle shares her ship to store experience: “I picked up my order today, the e-gift card was emailed 10 minutes after (it can take up to 4 hrs). Once you receive the e-gift card you can then add it to your ‘Gift Cards’ on your Target app. This section of the app stores, combines, shares and provides a barcode to scan in store.”
  • Rosemary posts on Facebook: “My Target today has buy one toy, get one toy 40% off. It applies to the clearance toys too for a great deal!”

Walgreens

  • Kitty noticed: ” Walgreens has milk for $2.49; Ibotta 25c = $2.24/gallon”

Febreze Air Effects + Downy deal at Jewel

jewel9.jpg

Febreze Air Effects is currently on sale for $2.50 at Jewel. Buy two and use the BOGO in the 7/27 PG and $1.00/1 in the 7/6 PG (exp 7/31) to get two for $1.50, or just $.75 a can! There’s also a $.75/1 printable here.

But wait, there’s more!

In Wednesday’s ad there is a buy $25 save $5 instantly P&G sale that includes Febreze, and it looks like this is already triggering the instant savings. The limit on the P&G coupons is four, but you can mix/match Febreze with other participating items to get up to $25.00. Assuming sale prices on other items have already started, you could, for instance, buy:

  • Eight Febreze Air Effects for $20.00.
  • Three 41-51 oz Downy for $11.97.
  • Now you’re at $31.97. Get $5 off instantly = $26.97.
  • Use $5.00/3 Downy from the 7/27 PG = $21.97.
  • Use four BOGO Febreze from the 7/27 PG = $11.97.
  • Use four $1.00/1 Febreze from the 7/6 PG = $7.97 for all 11 products!

You could also buy six Downy for $23.96 + two Febreze for $5.00 = $28.96. Get $5 off instantly = $23.96. Use two $5.00/3 Downy in the 7/27 PG = $13.96. Use BOGO Air Effects from the 7/27 PG = $11.46. Use $1.00/1 Febreze from the 7/6 PG = $10.46 for all seven products.

  • (If Downy is not yet on sale, the $3.99 price is in Wednesday’s ad.)

The 7/6 P&G coupons expire 7/31, so not a lot of time to do the Febreze deals. I’ll be back later with the full list of participating products and coupon matchups, but these are the best deals I see offhand.

(Thanks, deranged.me)

Remember to get your $1.00 all beef hot dogs at Jewel

dietz-and-watson-hot-dogs-300

Thanks again to feelgood for being the first to spot this deal: Dietz & Watson all beef deli franks (both regular and the uncured pictured), cheddarwurst, and more are on price cut for $3.00 at Jewel. No idea for how long, since they were not actually tagged at my store — but did indeed scan two for $6.00.

The chicken sausages are on sale 3/$10.00 — I bought buffalo, but other kinds scanned that way as well.

dietz

Use the $2.00/1 coupon in the current Big Book of Savings (up front by the weekly ads) to score yourself some normally very expensive hot dogs and sausages for just $1.00-$1.33! The coupon expires 7/31; I’m not sure when the sale ends, so please comment if you see a tag.

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own 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.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • Janice is a fan of the HSI flat iron: “Love mine. My daughter comes over to use mine all the time.”

Jewel

  • On the cookies someone had trouble with, feelgood had better luck: “I bought both the S’mores marshmallow and the Simply Made peanut butter chocolate chip, both rang up $1.49 each after the instant discount. Used $1.50/1 from KFR redemption for free cookies. A friend tried the S’mores peanut butter, those rang up $1.99 and no instant discount came off.”
  • Also from feelgood: “Found this at all three Jewels I went to tonight. These Dietz & Watson 16 oz sausages marked $6.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00 each: Smoked Sausage Cheddarwurst, Black Forest Bratwurst, Natural Casing Beef Franks, Uncured Beef Franks. Deli Beef Franks, marked $5.99 on the shelf, scanned for $3.00. Deli Franks, marked $5.49 on the shelf, scanned for $2.50. After the $2.00/1 coupon found on page 11 of the monthly Big Book of Savings, makes the sausages $1.00 or $0.50 each!”
  • Finally, he shares: “Jewel has a gift card promo until Tuesday 7/29. Buy a $100 American Express Gift card, get a $10 Jewel catalina for your next purchase. $10 catalina expires a week later. Bought some yesterday, with the $5.95 fee total is $105.95, so a $4.05 MM. Even better if you pay with a credit card that offers cashback, miles or points for purchases.”

Kmart

  • Lisa reports on the Downy deal: “Yes, it rolls. You will need a filler just like Walgreens if you are using a coupon on every item you buy. I found Downy at my store with Spanish print for $3.47 so with tax it ended up being a $3.88 mm for 3 with coupon.”
  • Jane asks: “So, if you only bought the 3 Downys and used the $5/3 coupon, you will need to buy just 1 filler item (to be able to use the $5 Catalina) or will you need 2 filler items if you also use the 5000 points on that order? Thanks!”

Kohl’s

  • From Outlander: “At Kohls, through today, is this fantastic deal on Nutribullet: Go to Kohls.com, put Nutribullet in your cart. It’s on sale for $89.99. Use HOMESALE10, for $10 off, use a code from your email that gives either $5, $10 or $15 off your purchase of $25 or more (my code was $10 off), use JULY15SHIP for free shipping (or it’s free shipping over $75), and use POOLSIDE for 25% off with your Kohl’s charge card (maybe you have 30% off?). Brings it down to $55.64 for me, including tax, and you still get $10 Kohl’s cash for being over $50, so that brings your total down to $45!!!! That is the best price I have ever seen, and I would definitely recommend it!!”

Target

  • Krystle shares: “Awesome deal @ Target this week on Downy. Buy 4 @ $7.99 ea get a $10 Target gift card. Use $2/2 downy Mobile TQ, $2/2 downy printable TQ NLA (I think the same coupon was also in the home mailer if you were lucky enough to get one), $5/3 Mfg 7/27PG, and $1/1 Mfg 7/27PG. You will end up paying $2.99 each, that’s less than 3 cents per load if you buy the regular 120 load bottles. The downy infusions is also included but the bottles are only 96 loads. This trip helped me finish my PG MIR.”
  • Melinda posts on Facebook: “We were at the Lombard Target today and found Up&Up SPF30 (spray) on clearance for $3.00 each, reg price is $6.04

Walmart

  • Yvette shares some news: “A heads up to Wal-Mart shoppers who like to price match. There may soon be no need to price match at the register if you’re a frequent Wal-Mart shopper. The company is rolling out a new app that will allow you to input your receipt information and will then automatically determine if you could have saved money shopping elsewhere. Any difference will be issued as a Wal-Mart gift card on your next visit. The program is in beta for employees only at this point but it’s working really well and is getting great reviews. I expect we may see it roll out at the end of the year. Couldn’t wait to share with MOM readers!”

Amazon

  • Outlander found barbecue sauce: “Cheap filler on Amazon with 20 s&s and 25% off Q. And this one is delicious. I’m using it right now.”

Complete schedule of events

Hot dogs

  • Debra emails: “Vienna beef store on north damen ave north of Fullerton in Chicago.   I bought bags for $10.  Good prices”
  • And Margie suggests: “100 hot dogs, GFS has good prices on all beef hot dogs. They are precooked so you are only heating and putting them in a bun. They also sell the foil sheets you can wrap them in. Use a coupon at GFS for $5 off 50 often in the newspaper if not find a friend with an entertainment coupon book. Buns aren’t cheap there, GO TO ALDI for buns. I know a restaurant owner who buys buns at Aldi its a trade secret I guess. Hope that’s helpful.”

Jewel

  • A find from juli: “Gurnee Jewel has 8 oz pub burgers for $1.00. Thats 16 oz for $2.00!!!!! You can smush it up for any ground beef recipe…… Unless it is a misprint…Gurnee store only.”
  • A heads up from grandma g: “At Jewel today I bought 2 of the Keebler cookies, clearly marked on the shelf at $1.99 ea. After I checked out I checked my receipt and there was no “instant $1 savings” Went to the Service Desk and the woman there informed me that the “instant savings” was the reduction of $1 off each package, thus the $1.99 sale price, but there was no extra money off. What??? Leaves me speechless how the service people don’t understand their own ads and sales. I’ll just go back when someone else is there or ask for the manager I guess, but if the service desk doesn’t get it the manager probably won’t either. Maybe a different Jewel. Yet another reason why I rarely go to Jewel anymore:(“

Kmart

  • Jane warns: “I tried to roll points months back on a toilet seat and ended up returning it because the points did not show up on the 2nd one I bought using points.  I do recall the time they had the Tide/Hanes deal, the Catalinas rolled just fine BUT it did not involve points that time. I would almost bet that this deal on the Downy will not roll but anyone that tries it please report back! Thanks.”

Meijer

  • Rangerdave says: “7/27 through 8/2, all Meijer stores will take an additional 50% off clearance priced electronics. Televisions, tablets, and iPod are excluded from this promotion.”

Menards

  • From rifat: “YMMV Some Menard’s are a PIA on using more than 1 of the same coupon in a single purchase. You might have to do several transactions to do the ZEP deal.”

Online deals

  • From Carol S-T: “Bought these [New Balance shoes] a few weeks ago when they were on sale. Extremely comfortable! Unfortunately, the pink is very bright and the line pattern makes me feel like Spider-Man’s sister, so I only wear them on the treadmill at home.”

Reader requests

  • West is wondering about the pet beds: “Anybody purchase these before? I’m curious of the quality/thickness?”

Reader requests

  • Jane is wondering: “I just got my Hormel Freebie at Kroger but they don’t carry the Celeste pizza anymore. Anyone ever see them at Jewel?”
  • Linda responds: “I just got a Celeste pizza at Jewel in Glen Ellyn on Roosevelt.  They had cheese and sausage flavors.I still get strange looks from the Jewel cashiers who say I don’t need to use my preferred card.  I tried to explain to my cashier today about my magical things that happen online when they scan it.  She didn’t get it, but was fine with scanning my card.  I usually just say “I get magical things online”, and they scan it with no problems.  ;)” I am so thankful my store has a self-checkout! And I also found the pizza at Jewel, but not at Meijer.
  • Valentina S. also found it: “Yes, got mine at Jewel at 7329 S Cass Ave, Darien, IL 60561. They have original and sausage varieties, $1.00 each.”
  • One from karen: “Any good deals on 80/20 ground beef this week? I need lots.”

Recipes, etc.

  • Angie shares: “Baked Parmesan Zucchini has become a favorite here this summer. 4 Zucchini, quartered length wise, 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese, 1/2 tsp dried thyme, 1/2 tsp dried oregano, 1/2 tsp dried basil, 1/4 tsp garlic powder, 2 tblsp olive oil. Preheat oven to 350 coat a baking sheet with nonstick spray. Mix cheese and herbs in a bowl/bag, brush zucchini with olive oil. Coat zucchini with cheese mixture and place on cookie sheet. Bake until tender about 15 mins or until crisp and gold. I usually broil mine for the last 5 mins. Serve immediately.”
  • One from Fran: “This recipe is from Allrecipes.com. I made it this past weekend (along with stuffed zucchini and grilled zucchini slices), and these are very good. The only thing I did different was after shredding the zucchini, I sprinkled it with salt and let it sit and drain for about 30 mins. This recipe looks to be very forgiving in that other veggies could be added based on whatever happens to be ripe in the garden at any given time Zucchini Patties
  • For your zucchini or any other use, Outlander says: “I saw somewhere that you should never buy a mandoline with a blade that’s straight across, and that the V blade is not that great either. They recommend angled blade. This is the one I have, just the older model (black and grey). It’s great.”
  • Heather posts on Facebook: “You can also shed and freeze for baking later. Just freeze in portions for your favorite muffin/bread. There will be a lot of liquid when it thaws. Just dump it all in. Haven’t had any luck freezing and cooking. Too rubbery. But baking works.

Target

  • Valentina S. reports on Purell: “Thank you, Rachel. I got mine at Willowbrook Target, 12 oz priced $2.49 (50% more free, Refreshing Aloe).”

Walgreens

  • Lisa emails: “Just wanted to mention a deal I just stumbled upon. My son takes omeprazole everyday and we ran out. We usually buy it at sam’s but it was late so he just ran to walgreens to buy some. The 42 count walgreens brand is on sale this week buy one get one free ( 21.99) –nice enough BUT when he got home he had a catalina advertising a mail in rebate for $10. This offer is only through 7/26!! So after rebate we paid 11.99 for 84 pills.”

Whole Foods

  • Maureen found: “Whole Foods also has an online print $1/1 Organic Valley String Cheese to stack with the $1/1 Organic Valley MQ.”
