Try new restaurants — A la Card is back on LivingSocial

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


Here’s a fun way to try out some new Chicago restaurants! Head over to LivingSocial and pick up an A la Card deck — A 52 card deck of $10 restaurant gift certificates — for just $15.00. You only need to use two and you’ve more than covered your initial investment.

Ready to celebrate spring and the return of al fresco dining? (We know we are.) Then get $10 savings at each of 52 must-try Chicago restaurants (for a total value of $520) — all conveniently packaged in a single deck of cards:

• $15 ($30 value) for a deck of 52 restaurant gift cards — a potential savings of $520
• Each card dishes out information on a local restaurant and is also worth $10 at that unique chef-driven, owner-operated restaurant
• Deck spans various cuisines, price points, and Chicago neighborhoods

Here’s the Deal
A la Card Chicago has selected 52 restaurants that have made exciting and unique contributions to the city’s dining culture. Each $10 gift card in the deck names a restaurant and lists some cool info about the independent business — what the ambiance is like, what type of cuisine it serves, and where it’s located. Bring along friends, family, or even business associates to experience some of the city’s hottest restaurants, such as Fat Rice, Bon Appétit’s number four pick on its “Best New Restaurants in America 2013″ list — or Longman & Eagle, a Michelin-starred restaurant also named a “Best New Restaurant in America” by Esquire and GQ.

Cash Back / Apps

  • To go with the Checkout 51 Glade rebates this week, Liz comments: “candles, one count oil refills and wax melts are 2/$6, get 2 rr, use 1/1 coupons and money back from checkout 51 making them free”
  • And Liz also found a Beyond Meat burgers stack: $3.00 back from Shopmium, $3.00 back from Ibotta at Target, $2.00 back from BerryCart, and $1.00/1 on Mambo Sprouts. If you’re new to the cash back apps, read more here.
  • Liz follows up on this deal, saying: “my target didn’t have the burgers. The crumbles or chicken was 4.99(my target usually runs higher compared to others). So after coupons and rebates ended up being .50 plus I received a catalina for target next time and if you redeem 2 beyond meat on ibotta you get a $1.00 bonus. Cheap tacos for me tonight!”
  • Also from Liz: “There is also a 1.00 off sambozan on shopmium, and .50 from ibotta if someone knows wher they are on sale at. Lastly don’t forget the jewel B1G1F noosa at jewel with the up to 40% off from shopmium.” The big bottles are $5.99 at Whole Foods this week.
  • A find from peaches: “I was just on Mambo Sprouts, and I noticed that valpak is going to start distributing their coupons in their flyer. There is also a deal on valpak where you can get a $5 Amazon GC, if you make a $2 purchase with your Visa card at any Peet’s Coffee shop. You have to make the purchase, and then go online to enter in your credit card number, so they can verify that you made the purchase, and then you will be emailed the Amazon code.”


  • Julie comments on the free jellybeans deal: “Heads up to anyone trying this deal, the coupon beeps, so ymmv depending on your store. I’m guessing either the smaller package UPC codes are not included on the coupon’s digital info (despite no size restrictions) or the CVS registers have a problem with the purchase requirement being 3, and only adding up to $1.50 for a $2 coupon. The cashier manually pushed it through for me, one I explained that I got 4 for each coupon to make sure I cover the $2. Probably not going to work for only buying 3 per coupon and trying to use the overage towards something else.” The CVS coupon policy does not allow for overage, so no.

Food 4 Less

  • A find from Larry: “Food for Less in Hammond has boneless skinless chicken breast for $.99lb!!”


  • A reminder from Connie on the great LivingSocial gluten free expo deal: “LivingSocial has $10 tickets to the Gluten Free & Allergen Friendly Expo May 2-3. That’s 50% off. I had an extra 10% off they offered so my purchase was only $9.”


  • From peaches: “Organic Life is $5.99 with the code [use code MASHUPMOM today 3/6 only]. If you purchase a year subscription to Organic Life, you can also get a year subscription to Bon Appetit. for $4.99.”


  • For those looking for a better method of locating the rebate deals at Menards, tips from Julie: “For Shopper at Menards, my hubby plays the Menards rebate game quite often and while there is no single trick to work for everything, there are a few rules of thumb he generally uses. If the item is a pretty typical Menards type item (hand tools, cabinet hardware, furnace filters, etc.) then they are generally found in the appropriate section, but will usually have a purple shelf tag and the rebate info near their spot. For items that are a bit further off from Menards regular items, like the money making hand towels, washcloths or oven mitts, from the last year or 2, these are typically placed on one of the end caps of the aisles. Food will generally be at the front of the store if you have a smaller Menards, or in the food section if you have a larger Menards, but the exception there is frozen food, these can seem to be places in freezers/coolers anywhere throughout the store (check the entrances, end caps and food sections. Otherwise, its pretty much a crapshoot. Good Luck!”
  • And from Don: “Shopper, seems to me that Menards seems to scatter the F.A.R throughout the store – seemingly to be sure we go into all the departments hoping to sell some items in the meantime”
  • Bankingonit suggests: “I ask a Menard’s employee where the item is. They are ususally very helpful.”
  • And a helpful cheat sheet from Anthony, who says: “The SKU numbers are only indicative of the department in which a given item resides.
    Any sku starting with 100-#### belongs to the building materials department
    Any sku starting with 200-#### belongs to the hardware department
    Any sku starting with 300-#### belongs to the electrical department
    Any sku starting with 400-#### belongs to the millwork department
    Any sku starting with 500-#### belongs to the paint and wallcoverings department
    Any sku starting with 600-#### belongs to the plumbing department
    Any sku starting with 700-#### belongs to the floorcoverings department.
    Source: Former shipping and receiving employee with Menards…I sorted and delivered incoming merchandise to the various departments.”
