  • 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.”

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.”


  • 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:(“


  • 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.”


  • 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.”


  • 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.”

  • 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.”

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

Meijer deals week of 7/24/14 – 7/30/14


Here are the best Chicago Meijer deals and coupon matchups I see for the week of 7/24/14 – 7/30/14.

(Note: Smaller neighborhood grocery Chicago Meijers such as Niles, Melrose Park, Berwyn, and Orland Park, go off a different ad than other Chicago Meijers, so some of your deals may differ from those shown here. Please verify in your own ad. Other states, Northwest Indiana, and downstate IL are on the Sunday-Thursday ad schedule, so sales there start the Sunday before the Thursday they start in Chicagoland in IL.)

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.

In-store deals

  • Outlander shares: “If anyone is looking for headphones, I got a good deal at Hot Topic at the mall. They have some accessories on clearance BOGO free. Well, they have Grumpy Cat headphones (orig. $29.50) on clearance $9.98 and BOGO free, so about $5 each. My kids love them. There was clearance on shirts too. They were about $15, and you get a second one for $1. My son got 4 for about $32, so $8 each, which is great since regular price is around $21 each.” She adds: “Here are the headphones.

Hair services

  • Laura asks: “Has anyone seen a coupon for Great clips?  Do they take competitors coupons? thanks”
  • Shandelle shares: “Someone told me they take competitor’s coupons but I tried to go into one with a $4 supercuts coupon from a couple weeks ago in the inserts and they told me no. This was in the city and they’re all franchised I think so maybe stores just make up their own rules about that sort of thing. Check for an Early Bird special if you can’t find a coupon. I think the store near me advertised a $9.99 haircut if you come in before noon on Mon or Tue.”
  • From Comicbob: “My great clips gave me $2 off with competitor’s coupon.”

Home Depot

  • Jackie on Facebook likes the $5 golf umbrella: “I bought one of these last time around and it was surprisingly nice!”


  • If you find clearance like Rachel did, David sweetens the deal: “Snackimals (or Puffins) are still $1.50 back on Shopmium. Don’t know if Rachel already redeemed, but good for everyone else to know.”
  • A possible deal from feelgood: “If the Keebler S’mores and Simply Made are really $1.99 this time around (a few weeks ago during the Keebler cookies sale these were tagged at a higher price), then they should be $0.99 each after the $1.00/2 printable coupon and the $1.00 instant off when you buy 2, as advertised on page 24 of the Jewel monthly ad.”
  • He adds: “Also, S’mores are giving 220 points each on KFR. And until 7/25, enter 5 codes from Keebler cookies and get a bonus of 1000 points, limit twice. With just 5 S’mores, you should get 2100 points. You can redeem 1000 points for a $1.50/1 coupon on Keebler cookies…don’t these print 2X? With the instant $1.00 off on 2, the cookies would be $1.49 each, so more free cookies. And then enter those codes for more points!”
  • And he sends over three Essential Everyday printable coupons: $1.00/3 EE condiments, $1.50//2 refrigerated salsas, $1.50/2 pickles.
  • Something to look for from Sandy K-G: “My Tribune has a glossy separate ad $5 off $50 for Jewel. This is besides the normal sale ad. Nice surprise today.” She adds: “Oh ya. Fine print says Eola Rd or Napeville Sorry. But for those out this way a nice surprise.”


  • Outlander shares: “Just bought strawberries at Bloomingdale Meijer on sale 5/$5. Only 25 cents with my Driscoll Q. Free if you have $1 Q.”


  • Sent over by letsshop: “At my Menards flowering perennial bushes on sale $5.24 with  $5 each rebate = 24 cents 12 limit  ,bought 12  (: Don’t know if all stores marked ,worth checking . Lots of Butterfly bushes ,Spirea and Forsythia and Wieglia  !”

Piggly Wiggly

  • Some questions from liz: “I am going up to Wisconsin this weekend and am going to check out this store since I see they have double coupon days..I am wondering if any of your readers can help with the coupon policy . It says you may double 10 coupons up to and including $1.00 with a $25. purchase. Is the $25 before or after coupons? Do they take printable coupons?”
  • Kari O. responds: “Before coupons. And they take some printables. Mostly just at my store. They had a few fraudulent Smartsource ones recently, so they’re very picky in Antioch. Also make sure the coupons you have don’t say “Do Not Double” or “DND” because they will not double them. I found this to be true on Blinkies, Peelies and Little Debbie coupons. Make sure you have a Piggly Wiggly card first. Sign up at the customer service desk. Also make sure grab a physical ad because you must have the in ad coupon to qualify for double coupons. It’s fun.”
  • And liz follows up: “after the 10th double can you still use a 11th single coupon? I wamt to get $25 in free groceries lol”
  • Kari O. answers: “Yes. You can use more than 10 coupons. But only the first 10 will double. I usually hand those over first on a separate pile. Keep in mind they manually enter each doubled coupon. So it takes awhile to check out. Just be patient and super nice. I find most of the cashiers coupon and take advantage of double coupons too, so they’re nice about it too.”
  • She also suggests: “Use the Butera ad to plan too. In my area the Butera ad and Piggly Wiggly ad are nearly identical. I do get lots of stuff free, but I always throw in treats for my kids and overpriced items too. I feel guilty taking advantage of them sometimes. My local store uses double coupons as a gimmick just to get people in the door. They are competing with a Walmart and now an Aldi’s too. So, they are desperate and that’s why they double coupons.”

  • From Vivian in Hot Deals: “I’ll be shopping for a Queen size mattress soon. Med-Firm. Any ideas of the best places to shop?”



Print now save later — Galbani Mozzarella at Meijer


I’m loving these high value cheese coupons! Head over and use ZIP 80525 to print $2.00/1 President or Galbani gourmet cheese.

If you don’t have a Meijer, Galbani mozzarella also goes on sale as low as $2.49-$3.00 at stores like Pete’s Market, although you won’t be able to use Ibotta there.

(Thanks, Bargains to Bounty)

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.

Ancestry research

  • Charlotte shares: “I tried this, but because I’m from Europe (as in born in Europe), doesn’t have very good coverage over European ancestors. Kinda bummed.”
  • Patty suggests: “Check with your local library. Sometimes they have the subscription and you can either access it from their website or using a computer in the library. All you need is your library card number. Also, many libraries hold classes on this subject to teach you how to start searching on your own. A fantastic use of your tax dollars!”
  • Connie adds: “It’s a great show, really enjoy it. Often you can find it and its British counterpart on YouTube (the British one is better, of course!) They still run the reruns on TLC and I bet they are on the TLC website. Ancestry is a good deal, but there are many other sites that can be helpful in genealogy that offer free assistance or low cost assistance. Places like FamilySearch ( , US GenWeb ( and others offer many original records to anyone. If people really enjoy it I’d be happy to write up a bunch of the money saving habits I’ve learned since I started to do genealogy when I was 10 years old.”


  • Something seachicago noticed: “Recent, I saw a 96 pack (8 dozen) of Ticonderoga pencils for $9.49 at Costco. Go to the store, though, because has them for $14.99.”


  • Scott M. says: “The CVS Deals for Dial can be stacked with a promo that expires on Monday at 11:59PM Eastern Time, where if you buy $25 of Dial products, you get a free $10 gas card:


Household tips

  • From Steve F.: “About those white rings on furniture…..This product works great. Had huge white ring on table after Thanksgiving where the hot gravy bowl sat on the tablecloth. Found this Jasco Furniture White Ring Remover up at Clark-Devon Hardware in Chicago…Didn’t pay the high price of Amazon tho! It’s a cloth with stuff on it, you follow the instructions and the ring came out completely. Polished up the table and you couldn’t even tell. Saved the antique table from the dump ditch!!! Link and pic is here, but I think you can find it cheaper other places.”
  • He adds: “Oh….and it’s just not a one time use thing. Put it in a Zip-lock sandwich bag and it’ll last for years.”
  • A question from maggie: “Hi Steve, just saw your reply here. I wonder what the active ingredient in this cloth is – spending $ 26 on a cloth is a bit over my budget but I’d love to try something like this! :)”
  • Steve F. responds: “Maggie, I have no idea what’s in it. I still have the original wrapper, and there is no ingredient listed anywhere on the package. I’ve had mine for probably 10 years or so, and it still works like brand new. Like I said above, I didn’t buy mine from Amazon, and I keep mine sealed in the original zip bag it came in, plus I keep that in another zip bag. I know that I have rescued countless pieces of furniture from thrift stores and alleys in Chicago that had white rings on them with this stuff! , so I’m thinking it’s cheaper to use this rag for years and years, instead of buying new furniture every time a piece gets ruined with water rings. Of course, there is always grandma’s doily to strategically place over that nasty water ring!! :0″
  • Anne found: “The MSDS for the product is here:”
  • Another option, from mama: “Liquid Gold would probably work on the white marks on the table. It does wonder for stains on my wood floors!”
  • And one from Jill: “For all the “white ring” problems, if the methods suggested don’t work, I work for a furniture repair company that can help. Depending on the extent of the damage, we charge $120 and up for the repair of a table. Here is the website if you are interested.


  • Susan C. reports: “Just came back from the Jewel on Janes in Woodridge. Signs say $1.99/lb . Grocery person said he didn’t know about a [$1.49/lb cherries] sale. Went to the register, they rang at $1.99/lb but the checkout clerk was nice enough to adjust the price. Be aware.”
  • A deal from John W: “Also at Jewel this week, the 7-Up/Sunkist/etc soda for 79 cents when you buy 4 includes the 10 varieties, so you can use the 55 cent or $1/2 coupons for 24-29 cent soda. The Sunkist 10 is hard to find, but most Jewels seem to have a little of the other 10 soda. And the new Jewel at Clark and Howard in Chicago has bananas for 19 cents/lb, an in-store special at that store only.”


  • From Joy: “My mPerks had a store coupon for $1/4 granola bars, including nutrition bars (any brand). It pictures boxes, but I bought 4 single Clif bars as part of my $10/11 items and it came off! About $.66 each all told. I imagine it would work fine on the Larabar or Luna singles, too.”

Online deals

  • From cowsarecool22o on Twitter, on the cheap Android phone: “Phone runs Android 4.0 (ice cream sandwich) which was released 2 yrs ago. Ibotta runs on all Android 2.2 or newer.”

Reader requests

  • From peaches: “Does anybody know if there are ever any coupons for Hair Cuttery? Do they accept competitor’s coupons? I know that most people here go to Great Clips because they have coupons all the time, and are a lot cheaper, but the last two times I have gotten a bargain haircut at Great Clips, I have been really disappointed with my haircut. At least at Hair Cuttery you get a half way decent haircut most of the time, and sometimes you get a great one. The last time I got my hair cut, I went to an independent salon in Evanston, that did a wonderful job. I got a lot of complements about my hair, but it cost me $45, and I don’t have that kind of money right now.”
  • Michael asks: “Does anyone know whether you have to order a “movie on demand” to apply the $6 credits to or if it just goes to the cable bill whether you have ordered movies or not?”
  • One from Kimberly: “Any good stainless steel appliance cleaner recommendations? We like the stuff we’re using now but the shipping costs are outrageous! Thanks!”

Sam’s Club

  • Interested in the Groupon, Kristen asks: “Been waiting for this to come around again. My membership expires today, anyone know when I’d be able to use it? Or if my husband can sign us up since he is my 2nd person? Thanks”
  • Margie is wondering too: “If you had a membership and it has been expired (since may) is it considered a new membership if you buy this groupon?”
  • Monique reports: “It worked for us last year with the March Livingsocial deal. I can’t remember the actual dates. The sequences was… bought Livingsocial deal, Sam’s membership expired a month later, waited a month just to be sure, and then redeemed the livingsocial code before its expiration date.”
  • Jackie says: “Mine expired this past March. I was waiting for a deal like this, so I didn’t renew. I bought the last one they had and signed up as a ‘new’ member in June- no problem.”
  • Kim adds: “It worked for me last time. I think spouse was primary on the old membership and then now I am primary on this one.”
  • A tip from Kari O.: “Did you know the Sam’s Club app has a scannable image of your membership card? No photo or name, just membership number and barcode. I am logged into my mothers account in Utah and when my sisters run into Sam’s Club for something they always text me “Send me the card!” And I send them a screenshot. Works every time and they don’t ask for ID. Just a strange loophole in case someone loses their card or their spouse is near Sam’s Club and forgot their card. The only bad part is the sample machines aren’t big enough for my phone to slide into. So, no free Luna bars for me. You need an actual membership card to scan in order to use them.”
  • Another from peaches: “You know you can become an associate member for $10 a year. The only downside to it is if you decide to order anything on their website. I tried to order tires on their website recently, and it asked for my sister’s password, because she is the primary member. She lives in New Orleans, and I had to call her up and ask for her password, and after asking me why I had to buy the tires online, and why did I have to buy them at Sam’s Club, and was I sure that I needed new tires, she told me that she did not have a password. She does not order much on line. She is on a guilt trip about not paying sales tax at Amazon. Yes, she can afford to pay sales tax, and plus sales tax in Louisiana is a lot less than it is here. She finally figured out that she did have a password, and gave it to me, and I copied it wrong. It was a long password. I did not want to call her back, so I ended up going to Sam’s Club, and they were able to order the tires for me on line, once I gave them my member ship card.”

School supplies

  • Some tips from mama: “The worst pencils are Target’s own. They break easily and are a waste of money at any price. Our teachers specify Ticonderoga on their lists. And it’s a huge help if you can take the time to sharpen pencils before donating :)”
  • Allison shares: “ is a good price comparison website for book rental sites. I also use when I need to sell my textbooks. I tend to find that if it is a newer book that I can sell it for a higher price using”


  • Sarah shares: “Target has a coupon $1.50/2 cleaning products. It excludes items under $1. At my store the 2 pack up&up sponges are $1.04 so double check the price at yours. Buy 2 and pay $0.58 after coupon for 4 sponges! Just did it this morning and no beeps!”
  • A scenario from Krystle: “Awesome Target trip/idea I had to share. Buy 2 bags pedigree dog food @ $12.99 ( i found 20 lbs bonus size bags), 2 x pedigree dog treats @ $2.99 each, 2 x Beneful baked delights @ $3 each, 1 12LB bag of Purina Pure Nature kitty litter @ $12.99. Total = $50.95, minus $5/15 TQ, 2x $1/1 pedigree dog food TQ printable, 2x $3/1 pedigree mfg 6/29RP, 1x $1/2 pedigree treats printable, 2x $1.50/1 Beneful baked treats 4/27SS, and 1x $2/1 purina pure nature printable NLA. Pay $21.95, plus earn $10 in gift cards from the dog food/ treat combo, and submit for the Purina Pure Nature MIR( option to submit online!) for $10.99. So 96 cents excluding tax!” She adds: “Oops meant $15/50 Pet TQ. Also tax was around $4 for me for this transaction, something to keep in mind.”
  • A deal letsshop did: “Got 3 boxes for my daughter Tampax pearl 36 ct. for about $4 (: nobody mentioned it ! isn’t it a good deal ?I am definitely to old and its been to long since I bought any !!Just trying to help my non couponer daughter .”
  • She clarifies: “$5/$15 Target coupon today’s paper and (3) $2/1 and 5 % Cartwheel and receive $5 GC making and $1.65 each”
  • And Sarah adds: “Maybe it is what I did this morning. 4 boxes of radiant tampons or pads at $4.19 each = 16.76. Use the personal care coupon, 5% cartwheel, and $2/1 coupons. Works out to a little over $3 total for all four boxes.”
  • Cynthia emails about the Frozen Sparkle Elsa doll: “I know you had posted about this doll coming in and out of stock on Amazon.  I’ve been watching the Target websites, and checked tonight and almost all the local Targets (Bolingbrook, Wheaton, Orland, etc.) have her listed “in stock” right now.  My mom picked up one in Orland for my daughter’s birthday.  Hopefully this helps other readers with Frozen fans in their homes!”

Toys R Us

  • Ruth reports: “Toys R Us had these exact same [Frozen] dresses for $19.99 as of yesterday (7/18)”


  • A deal from Maggie2: “Found a great deal on Centrum vitamins at Walgreens today. 125 count were on sale for $9.99, plus BOGO 50%. I bought two for $14.98, used a $5/2 Centrum coupon in the Wags July coupon book, and two $4/1 coupons from the 7/13 RP. $1.98 for 250 vitamins!”
  • From letsshop, you might find Capri Sun 10 packs for $2.00 and producing 2,000 points when you buy two, so net $1.00 each after points if you find this deal.

Whole Foods

  • Liz shares: “Right beside the Pacific non-dairy beverages are Dream Latte™ Coffee + Almond Non-Dairy Drinks ( They were $1.99 for me and there is a $1.00/1 in this month’s Whole Deal. Not free but only $0.99 to try something new. Maybe this will stop me from hitting Dunkin Donuts each workday morning.”
  • David says: “Last month’s whole deal (expires July 31) had $1/2 tasty bite. You can find the coupons here still
  • A find from Krystle: “K stopped at the hinsdale location on the way to breakfast this morning, picked up some free clif mojo bars, and noticed they had Kettle chips with $0.55 MFG peelies. Stacked with the instore coupon they were $1.44 each, not bad IMO. No hassle check out either, oh and Rachel is correct the way they deducted my coupons was just weird. Some scanned, and others were bulk discounted. Overall nice experience, will be adding whole foods to my monthly rotation!”
  • Diana shares: “I go to Wheaton and also can’t wait for Elmhurst to open! I have to second the bulk bins! We get dried beans, rice, oats, coconut, the list goes on and on. The bulk spices are really great and like peaches said are better quality. Plus, you only have to pay for what you need. If my memory serves me right, they had vanilla beans for around $2.60 EACH. There is also a tour you can take that will explain how to save on their items. I think you just need to ask at customer service. I only wish it was easier to know what all their prices were, on produce for instance, since I don’t go too often. All in all, I love going for the great selection and nice employees.”
