Apps

  • Emily reports: “Yet ANOTHER rebate app? Great, lol! I submitted two receipts tonight after downloading the [Shrink] app and they both were approved within hours…much faster than Snap!”
  • And Evelyn points out: “There is $1.50 cash back [on Lysol wipes (works with Amazon)] from snap by groupon, you just need to forward your order confirmation to [email protected],  so $5.98 after all discounts”

CVS

  • From Angie on Facebook: “I checked my Extra Care savings online before I went to CVS today and I had a coupon for $2 off any Halloween Candy purchase!”

Food 4 Less

  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “It seems that Food4Less (Bolingbrook) has pretty much stopped ordering. So, unless you want bologna, beef or lamb, don’t come for the meat. Soda might be hit and miss too… I never thought I’d be this bummed to see a store close. :(“

Goodwill

  • Although it may vary by location since Goodwill stores here are broken up in regions with different promos, something to check for from letsshop: “Goodwill  10/15 double discount day for seniors & scratch  day ,lots of Halloween and garden and ?”

Household tips

  • Sheila shares: “I roast red peppers on the grill. Anywhere between 10-15 lbs at a time. Blacken the outsides. Then I put them in a stock pot with a lid. This lets them cool off and steam to loosen the charred outside skins. After they are all cleaned I then portion them and freeze them. Makes for a great addition to panini or DH & DD eat them as a side dish.”

Meijer

  • For the $1.00/2 Reynolds baking cups, Kerri shares: “I found them at Meier but they were hidden all the way at the bottom and pushed behind the Meier brand.”

Reader requests

  • Linda is wondering: “Has anyone ordered the [Target] college packs yet? I can’t figure out how to get the free shipping. It seems to require the red card to get free shipping even though the description says it ships free. Thanks!”
  • From Alicia: “If anyone sees any good deals on laptops, please let me know! I don’t really want one of the Windows 8 ones, but I realize I may not have a choice…”

Rugs

  • From Kari O.: “the company is called Carpet Concepts Unlimited and she is located on Circuit Dr off of Rollins Rd. Excellent quality rugs and repair work, but also sells regular area rugs for $40 in a variety of styles, sizes and colors. “
  • She adds: “Here is their FB page. Aside from their custom rugs and repairs, they also have the $40 regular area rugs in a variety of styles, colors and sizes. Definitely worth checking out. :)”

Amazon

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “Read the reviews before you buy [the Cuisinart ice cream maker]. I did ended up getting one at Costco only to discover that the reviews were right. It never froze the liquid I put in.”
  • But Outlander says: “I have that. Love it. As a matter of fact I have the ingredients to make my mango ice cream out on the counter right now.”

CVS

  • SmartShopper confirms: “I just came back from CVS and did this Coke deal (4pm on Sunday). I purchased (3) 12-packs of regular Coke. Looking at the receipt, they rang up at $5.99 each but below that it shows “sale savings” -$8.97.  I also received the $5.00 ECB  which equal $1.33 each 12 pack!”

Groupon

  • A warning from Susan: “I bought one of the Skechers Go Walk monitors last time they were on sale and it was awful.  The directions were in poorly translated English and when I called for help, Skechers told me they licensed another company to use their name, but they don’t provide Customer Service on the product.  It is not nearly as good as the Fit
    BIt products.  Spend the extra money.”

Household tips

  • From Outlander: “I roast red peppers on a much larger scale than that, for a couple of different uses. I prefer to clean them before roasting, just cut around the stem and remove the seeds, leave the rest whole. I also always roast them on a baking pan lined with foil for easier clean up. And make sure your baking sheet has a side or it can leak, peppers can sometimes have a lot of liquid. One thing I make is red pepper salad- after roasting them, put in a dish and cover with a bit of white vinegar. No oil needed. Add some chopped garlic and a touch of salt. Give a stir and let sit for a day or two before use. It will easily last a month in the fridge. Put on sandwiches or as a salad for meat and potatoes. The other thing I make is called Ajvar and is a kind of roasted red pepper and roasted eggplant spread.”
  • And Judy S. says: “I broil the red peppers, turning after each side is blackened and then I put them in a paper bag, heatproof bowl, or wrap in foil and let steam with their own heat for about 10 minutes. Great also with pasta, black beans and good Parmesan cheese.”

Meijer

  • From Caroline on Facebook: “Check your clearance at Meijer. I found Rolaid tablets for $1.12 a bottle and used the BOGO from the October P & G. I saw the liquid kind there too.”
  • Sheri shares: “On the $10 off your purchase of $25+ Playtex, Carefree, Stayfree, Schick, etc. I purchased (3) 32 ct. Playtex tampons ($6.99 each) , 2 packs of 20 ct. carefree panty liners (.99 each) and 1 pack of Stayfree pads ($2.89) and used 2 printable manufacturer coupons for $3 off playtex and one $3 off on my mperks, also used two .50 off panty liners in 10/5S and 1.00 off Stayfree. Paid about $4.84 for all those products. Not a bad stock up price.”

Target

  • A heads up from Debbie: “Speaking of SuperTarget, apparently the All You magazine that was posted a few days ago with man. coupon and Target coupon is only available there and not smaller Targets. We don’t have one here in Central IL that I am aware of.”
  • Maureen found: “I looked online, these seem to be the stylers that will trigger the $5 GC: TRESemme TRES Two Extra Hold Aerosol Hair Spray 11 oz; TRESemme Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray 8 oz; TRESemme Keratin Smooth Shine Serum 3.3 oz; and Keratin Smooth Flat Iron Smoothing Spray 8 oz. Sorry for being so confusing, my Target doesn’t have these.”

Walgreens

  • From Natalie: “This may be a glitch, but I bought two packs of the Dentyne Ice gum that was on sale 2/$1.50 and still got 1,000 BR points. Paired up with the $1/2 MQ from 10/12 SS, made this .50 mm.”
  • Susan: “Walgreens sells [fleece leggings] for 5.99 or 2/$10″

Coupons

  • A report from letsshop: “Most of these coupons are in the Hoy paper too (:”

Jewel

  • Jane says: “Hey, for your soup if you need some carrots, I saw 1 lb. bags of Earthbound Farm carrots for 99c at Jewel last week. I was planning on using the Wild Harvest $1/1 printable I had but they didn’t have anything in that brand at Jewel. I thought that was their house brand? Anyway, you could use the 75c coupon we just had to print for some 24c carrots!”

Meijer

  • Caroline on Facebook shares: “I had a horrible experience today at the Melrose Park Meijer store. I did the razor/Stayfree deal all the coupons beeped the cashier manager gave me a rotten attitude then her manager stepped in and had to manually put in the $5 Hydro coupons and the Stayfree beeped too. Wondering if it was a $10 manf. coupon thus the IPs didn’t want to scan. Just a heads up for anyone that planned on doing the deal. I was going to rinse and repeat but I’m not going to try again.”

Reader requests

  • Christine asks: “I am in need of tissue paper/Kleenex. Any deals anywhere? Costco had 10 boxes, 250ct for $14.50 (ish). Anywhere else have a decent deal? Don’t you love when everyone in your family uses something and never tells you, ‘This is the last box!’ Uggh.”

Sam’s Club

  • Caroline posts on Facebook: “At the last Sam’s open house we found fleece tights and leggings $8.44 for a two pack.”

Woodman’s

  • From nancy: “Woodman’s carries the Blue Bunny Ice cream. They have a big selection of varieties. Usually priced at 3.50 sometimes 3.00. You can sign up on their website to get coupons. They come about every other month. Usually 1.00 off 1 item or at least .75 off 1 item. It’s comes via email in a PDF printable coupon.”

Beef sources

  • From cindy: “We buy our beef straight from a farmer friend.   It cost us about $3.00/lb after processing.  We got a quarter cow which was about 200lbs.  Very good meat.   We also go to Lowrey meat market in Buchanan Michigan which is about 15 minutes over the state line.   Takes us about an hour to get there but can’t beat the prices for all sorts of meat.”
  • Outlander asks: “Cindy, do you have a name you can recommend. I’d love to order beef like that from a local farmer, but it would have to be good and not some kind of scam. How did they process yours? Thanks!”
  • And jaci shares: “The farmer we use happens to be a coworker of my husbands the meat when you buy it that way taste night and day. We do 1/2 before butchering weighed 350lbs after butchering and paying farmer works out to a little over $3lb for tenderloin ground beef roasts ect. I wonder if that’s something that could be posted in reader requests if anyone could suggest someone for you if he didn’t work with him I’m not sure how we would have come across someone”
  • Christina M. adds: “Here’s a list of several farmers near Chicago. www.eatwild.com/products/illinois.html I buy meat from local farmers in an effort to buy more humanely raised meat so I can’t say it’s necessarily cheaper. Here are the farmers I buy from in case they aren’t in that list: www.natureschoicefarm.com/ www.wallacefarms.com/ jakescountrymeats.com/about/ Most local farmers have farm tours available, either by appt or on specific days. I highly recommend going; it really makes you feel good about buying local.”

Meijer

  • Susie shares: “For the two-day sale, the Meijer vegetable oil is BOGO free and the Meijer brand sugar is B2G1 free. Depending on the price of these two items and whether the free items count towards the total dollar amount, we could have a good deal based on the catalina you have listed for Meijer: Meijer brand baking products 10/5/14 – 10/24/14 Buy $5 and get a $1 Catalina toward your next baking purchase Buy $10 and get a $3 Catalina toward your next baking purchase Alert from: Meijer (this is a Meijer-specific offer) When my mom told me she was heading out to the Meijer in Homer Glen yesterday I asked her to check the price of the vegetable oil and it was $2.68 a bottle, or $1.34 each after the BOGO free sale. Now, if we factor in the baking catalina and I think we are looking at a pretty good deal on oil that we have not seen since Jewel’s blackbelt catalina deals on the Wesson oil. Buy 8 bottles @ $2.68 each = $21.44 Minus 4 bottles @ $2.68 each= $10.72 Earn a $3 baking catalina = $7.72 $7.72/8 = $.965 a bottle”
  • From ellen: “on my checkout 51 i have a meijer specific buy 3 transocean snackers get $2. that would make them $.33 each after rebate.”
  • And liz reports: “I just got back from meijers in Niles..got a few good deals. First there is a schick/Playtex/carefree/stayfree deal spend $25 get $10 off instantly. I bought 2 hydro silk razors at 10.49 each, 2 carefree liners at .99 and 1 stayfree at 2.89 for 25.85 got $10 off then used 2 $5 off hydro silk printables from last week, 2 .50 carefree coupons and 1/1 printable stayfree from 2 weeks ago? for a total of 3.85..and credit towards my rewards. Next sara lee frozen strawberry or cherry cheesecakes and Danish’s were 50% off ..after discount were 2.49 and 2.79 plus there was a manu coupon from a insert I had in my book for .75 off. nice to have in the freezer.

  • An idea from peaches: “They might sell it at Food4less.”
  • Kari O. says: “There is a store locator on their website. Looks like Central IL like Morton, IL carry it but nothing nearer to Chicagoland.”
  • But peaches found: “I just checked on their website, and both food4less and Jewel carry it, as well as Mariano’s.”
  • And deann says: “ultra has blue bunny”
  • Mandy adds: “Walmart, Butera, & Ultra also sell Blue Bunny ice cream.”
  • Jane says: “I believe I have also seen Blue Bunny ice cream at Super Wal-Mart. Worth a shot?”

Amazon

  • On tee knockoff magic erasers, jackie shares: “I bought the knock off magic erasers. They came from a foreign country and didn’t hold up well at all. I needed to use many of them for one job. They are atleast half the thickness of Mr Clean. With Mr Clean I could use one pad for many jobs.”
  • But Don in Hot Deals likes them: “I really like them and at the price – win win”
  • On using them to wash dishes, Turken shares: “Re: Mr clean erasers — the “magic” erasers are nothing more than a piece of melamine foam, and generally considered safe. No chemicals other than worn-away particles of the foam itself.”
  • But Kari O. is not so sure: “That foam is made with formaldehyde… I wouldn’t want to wash my dishes with it.”
  • But then she found: “‘Here are some facts about the ingredients used in Magic Eraser: The ingredients in Magic Eraser have been safely and commonly used for many years in a wide range of household products. -Formaldehyde is not and has never been an ingredient in Magic Eraser. One ingredient in Magic Eraser (formaldehyde-melamine-sodium bisulfite copolymer) contains the word “formaldehyde” in its chemical name. However, this ingredient is not formaldehyde and poses no health or safety risks. (Think of this name like “sodium chloride”, which is table salt. Sodium by itself can be dangerous, but sodium chloride – salt – is safe.) Magic Eraser is considered non-toxic. As with any sponge-like product, when swallowed this product may block the gastrointestinal tract. Therefore, we do advise to keep this product out of the reach of children and pets to avoid accidental ingestion — it is not a toy. – It is possible that formaldehyde may be present in minute, trace amounts as a result of the manufacturing process. Even then, the amount present is significantly lower than standards established by governmental agencies and trade associations, and is actually less than what is found in indoor air. In fact, no ingredients in Magic Eraser are subject to any health-related labeling laws in North America or in the European Union.’ I don’t think Magic Erasers are dangerous, but I wouldn’t feel comfortable scrubbing it on my dishes.”
  • An idea from Outlander on the Finish tabs: “That same one is on Snap (must buy on Amazon and upload within 2 days). So if you don’t  want to do S&S, you can save $2 this way. I only don’t know if the Amazon Q will still be applied.”
  • She clarifies: “Actually, I don’t mean upload the receipt, you have to email them your Amazon confirmation email.”
  • Matt says: “I used to buy dog food at the Petco, but I saw on Amazon that it’s close to $10 cheaper to have it shipped to my house.”
  • Charlotte agrees: “I’m not Matt, but I get my dogfood from Amazon too. I feel a bit guilty about it, as I’m not supporting local stores. But those 30 lb bags are HEAVY. And IF I manage to get a $ off coupon from Pet Supplies Plus, AND it is on sale, I might get it for the same price as I get it from Amazon. We get Taste of the Wild by the way, and it’s around $44 for a 30 lb bag. Unlike other dogfood brands, our dog hasn’t grown tired from it and she gets two thumbs up on her bi-annual health check ups :)”

Costco

  • From jolynn: “If you are a Costco member…San Francisco Bay Fog Chaser 160 OneCup™ for $51.99…free shipping…$.325 per cup!!”

Goodwill

  • From letsshop’s email: “We’re opening our doors in Romeoville, at 1360 W. Airport Road, on Thursday, October 9! With fresh inventory and new product, be sure to stop by our newest location for AMAZING deals! “
  • Anne adds: “Romeoville Goodwill opened today. Cashier there said Frankfort grand opening is tomorrow.”

J.C. Penney

  • Matt reports: “It’s a good time for clearance shopping on summer items right now. I found some deals recently at JC Penney. $30 items were $5 and some items were even priced lower than that.”

Jewel

  • A find from rocket: “I think the twizzlers are 4 for $8 at jewel . Not pictured in ad but I think they were tagged that way.”
  • A report from bigmoney: “Got alert for Progresso soup cat at Jewel.”
  • Something to look for from Jane: “Did you see the other varieties of Marzetti besides the old fashioned one? I found some others on an end down by the bananas in my store. They also have Light, Peanut Butter and Sweet n Salty for the same price! We ate the Light one (isn’t diet!) last week and this week I picked up a PB and Sweet n Salty one. My husband likes the PB and we have yet to open the other one. I have a feeling I’m going to like the last one and eat too much of it. I try to avoid the caramel apples already made because sometimes the apple is mushy or bruised. I chop up a bunch of peanuts and dip your caramel sliced apple in the nuts! It’s awesome.”

Lawsuits

  • VB shares: “For AT&T wireless customers: here is the link to see if you are entitled to a refund from a class action lawsuit that goes back to 2009. People were charged fees that were “hidden” in their bill. If you fill out the claim they will do the work for you to see if you are entitled a refund. It will take a while to get the refund but if you were charged $9.99 a month since 2009 it may be worth the time.”

Meijer

  • A tip from Cindy: “Don’t forget to check your mperks rewards.  I have a $6 off when I spend $40 or more on paper, laundry, and cleaning items.”
  • Anne found: “The 10/$10 with 11th free facial tissue deal overlaps with the Meijer napkin/bath tissue/facial tissue Catalina running 10/5-10/24 where you buy $6, get $1.50 OYNO, buy $10, get $3 OYNO. The tissue counts are 75-160, so makes for a nice deal – 11 boxes for $7 net.” This also will count toward the reward Cindy mentions!

Reader requests

  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “Does anyone have any experience with the Allrecipe menu planner? I need a meal plan for my brain to function so we can have dinner on the table.”
  • From seachicago: “I live in Chicago (south side), and am wondering if it’s cost-effective (and tastier!) to buy a cow direct from a farmer—as in, already cut up and packaged ready for the freezer! I have no idea how to go about looking into that; any ideas or suggestions???”

Target

  • Jane says: “Or if you don’t want to deal with a gift card, I was at Target Sunday and their “Boots and Barkley” brand of litter was only $10.99 (reg. price) for the  35 lb. giant tub of clumping litter plus there was a Cartwheel for 10% off, making it only $9.90. I’m not sure if that offer is still valid, but it was a good deal for that size I thought. Plus you don’t have to pay all that extra high tax since you use no coupons and the Target Cartwheel takes the price paid down a bit!”

Trader Joe’s

  • A find from bigmoney: “Mini pumpkins were $.69 at Trader Joe’s today. “

Amazon

  • A tip from Christina: “Don’t diapers and wipes get 20 percent off with Amazon mom and subscribe and save without having to get 5 things? That is… until they change things in November?” That is right, so sign up for Amazon Mom (free with prime) if you haven’t already?

CVS

  • On the Nestle water, amy reports: “$2.79 currently at CVS less $1 coupon = $1.79 per 24 pack.”

Household tips

  • From patti: “For my floors all these types of products do is dull the finish (wood floors) and make it harder to clean next time. I stick to vinegar and water with a mop now. I’ve had a horrible time getting the residue off that these leave over a period of time!”

Jewel

  • Outlander shares: “I used those $1/3 EE tomato Qs today too. They are on sale $0.69 a can, or big ones for $1, so a good deal. I wanted to get more caramel dip (I got 3 the other day), but guess what? My store doesn’t have a single Big Book! I asked and they said they don’t have any, but I bet they pulled them because of that Q.” There were lots in River Forest today. I think it is just poor distribution.

Meijer

  • Tori suggests: “Check prices at your store. Mine has the Dove Body wash (22oz) for $5.79, and there are many Dove hair care products for 4.19 and even 4.99 (BOGO coupon limit). Depending on what you find you could do the deal with 2 body washes and only 1 hair care and still be over $15. Then you could use the $1.50/1 body wash Q and only 1 BOGO coupon, pay less and do the deal again. That’s what I did. BTW where did you find a $1.50/1?? I only had $1/1 coupons.”

Reader requests

  • VB asks: “My son’s birthday party is this coming Sunday. One of the activities that I want to do is have them paint mini pumpkins. What is the lowest price out there for mini pumpkins?”
  • Don posts in Hot Deals: “ISO NIU Sweatshirt”
  • Shandelle is wondering: “Does anyone know if any of the Pledge floor cleaning products are safe for pets? Specifically cats, as I have two. Would hate to do the deal and then not even be able to use them due to being toxic for my kitties.”
  • From Eun: “Can anyone tell me if the free inserts this week had the $2.50 EAS? I missed getting the ‘Deals Delivered’ inserts this week. :(“
  • A question from shirley: “I couldn’t find any Tide pods for HE when there was a deal at Target a few months ago. I don’t have a Super Target by me but I was wondering if it is only available at Super Target.”
