Coupons

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.”

ALDI

liveg

  • Charlotte commented on Facebook yesterday: “Saw this at the Lily cache lane aldi in Bolingbrook this morning, for all you gluten free peeps”

Meijer

  • A heads up from jennyh: “Got an email today from Meijer, baby rewards are changing and moving to personalize rewards. I gather its because they want to put time limit to earning rewards. Boo”
  • On the baby rewards note, Andrew F. shares: “Here’s a really great Pampers Diapers and Wipes deal this week. Pampers Diapers and Wipes are included in the P&G Household $5/25 deal. This will stack well with the $5/$30 Catalina. I stumbled onto this deal while in the store and did one Baby Dry Super Pack ($24.89) and one Wipes 64 count ($1.59). I had a few other items to hit the $30 total. Use the $2/1 mPerk for diapers and $0.50 mPerk for wipes (or identical paper coupons from the latest P&G). I got both the $5 P&G ONYO and the $5 Meijer ONYO. Also applies to mPerk baby rewards, so effectively another $2.65 off in the future. Slightly better deals would be using paper/printables and buying Jumbo Packs ($8.99). For Cruisers or Swaddlers, buy 3 diapers and 3 wipes, use (3) $2/1 Diapers and Wipes printables [Swaddlers here or Cruisers here]. For Baby Dry, buy 3 diapers and 2 wipes, use (3) $1.50 printables and (2) $0.50 wipes paper coupons.”
  • And ann piotrowski shares that: “Save $5.00 OYNO wyb $30.00+ — on your total purchase is working before coupons and discounts. Did one order with razors (had spend 30 earn 5 personal care on mperks) and one order with the b1g1 stayfree coupons. Worked great. The $ 5.00 OYNO is a store coupon and does not roll. Will be doing the J & J next, along with the P & G.”

Reader requests

  • One from letsshop: “Would you mention where the best deals are for Bunn coffee pots ? so far its close to $100 at Kohls”
  • Christine asks: “anyone know what a good price on Method laundry soap would be? I have a $3 coupon and wondering if $9.49 for 53 oz is good.”

Redbox

  • An online-only one night Redbox rental code today July 30 only, from letsshop (who saw it on Hip 2 Save): UB89RBBB.

Staples

  • Marsha shares: “Staples’s ad is out for the week of 8/2 – they’re going to have the Crayola washable markers for $0.75. Limit 5, no min purchase. Excellent for price matching, too!”

Target

  • LauraC shares a deal: “Target Hillside has the 9 ounce Evol Quesadillas on sale for $1.98 until 8/1. The $2.00 Evol coupon works on them plus there’s a Cartwheel too. I’ve looked for these at other Targets and I’ve only found them at Super Targets.”
  • And from seachicago: “Not sure what happened, but I got (3) 12 packs of Diet Coke for $5.18 (actually, $4.92 after my 5% redcard discount). My receipt says: Package subtotal: $11.97. Coke Diet Promo: -$3.99. Cartwheel: -$2.80. Can anyone figure out the math on that one??? Each 12 pack was $1.73 (or $1.64 after redcard)—best price I’ve gotten in years, maybe ever! High Chicago tax though, at 12.25%. Anyone know how many times you can do a deal on Cartwheel? I’d like to get some more!” Unless otherwise stated, Cartwheel is four per transaction, six transactions per day. Check the fine print on each offer, though.

  • 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.

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.”

Back-to-school Fairs

Hmart

  • From MamaHan: “HMart in IL has a dozen Extra Large Eggs on sale for 2/$2.88, limit two when you use your HMart card. (No charge, just sign up in store.) Chicken drumsticks are also on sale for $.48/lb. Sale runs from 7/24-7/30.
    http://www.hmart.com/company_new/coupon_event_enlarge.asp?loc=IL&num=&lan_type=eng has the online weekly ad for this time period. There are locations in Naperville, Hoffman Estates, and Niles.”

Mariano’s

  • Karen has a question: “I went to Mariano’s today and didn’t see any Crest toothpaste for 1.00. The cheapest I found on sale were priced 1.49 and most were 2.50 or 3.00. Can someone please share which specific ones are on sale for 1.00?”
  • And Caroline asks: “Does anyone know how long the Crest deal will be $1 at Mariano’s?”

Menards

  • On the Menards back-to-school deals, Diane asks: “Has anyone found a Menards with black pens? (The one I went to only had blue pens.)”
  • And Holly asks: “First time shopping for school supplies. If the list says Crayola washable markers I assume there is a reason it says Crayola?? Anyone out there ever used this brand Menards is advertising? Is Crayola really that much better? $0.79 is calling my name!”

Walgreens

  • From seachicago: “I bought something at Walgreens last week (milk & school supplies, I think), and the register printed out a 75 cent coupon for Butterball turkey bacon, which worked out great this week. Check and see if you got one, too!”

Whole Foods

  • On the Illinois Whole Foods deals to celebrate the new Evanston store, peaches comments: “Hi- I live in Evanston, and so I am sure I will check out the new store. They are supposed to have a wine bar, and the store is going to be larger than the two other WF stores in Evanston. The sale definitely underwhelms me though. Hopefully they will have some additional grand opening specials that are only taking place at the new store. Valli’s grand opening sale was much better, but the Evanston Valli store in general underwhelms me”

Carson’s

  • Heads up on today’s KitchenAid deal, from Suzann: “When I bought the KichenAid professional mixer on their last great promotion- they hit me with a $9.95 shipping charge because it was very heavy even though they had the free shipping offer over $75.00.”

Dollar Tree

  • Jane has a use for the BOGO Nutella & Go coupon: “I found these at Dollar Tree the last 2 trips there. Last time I used an insert BOGO coupon and got them for 50c each. We were out riding bikes and they were devoured in a second because they are small, though I agree with Mr. 8…..quite tasty!”

Furniture

  • More on the question of cheap furniture, from Bridgitte: “try freecycle .org , love this site everything is FREE and you post pick up and enjoy your freebie :)”
  • And another idea from Karen: “Furniture is available on Bookoo.com. There is an app – VarageSale. You can sign up for different areas & follow the home/furniture section. You will receive notifications when new items are posted. I love it!”

Kohl’s

  • A suggestion for the new Kohl’s codes, from erin: “10x” The Big One” solid towels @ 3/$10 -$10 HEATWAVE10 -$3.50 PYDAY15=$19.80 for 10 towels. ship to store for $0 shipping. just in time for college!”

Meijer

Migraines

  • More on the migraine topic from michelle s: “hi, I’m a long time migrainer and actually was at my 90 day neurology visit. I have worked with several doctors and highly recommend if someone has serious head pains to find a doctor they like. a neurologist is a good start and i also like my newer to me homeopathic doctor. feel free to email me if you have questions as i think i have finally found what works for me. everyone is different, but stay hydrated, i have been put on a gluten free/dairy free diet with high protien, and use essential oils, homeopathics, supplements, botox for migraines, and typical prescribed pain meds.”

Rebates

  • A heads up on the Hormel pepperoni movie deal from feelgood: “FYI, they changed the terms. Now the terms state that you need to buy three pepperoni products 5 OZ OR LARGER to get a free movie ticket. BOO! Also, texts from Cricket are not going through.”

Target

  • Heads up from Sue: “Just to let everyone know that the dog treats that r 10/10 was a mistake. I went to the lombard store and they did not have the signs so went to the woodridge store and they had taken the signs down. Just letting everyone know .”

Walgreens

  • Wendy shares on Facebook: “Socks at Walgreens 70% off. Orange signs everywhere!!! West Loop(Walgreens brand)”

Amazon

  • On the free Fire Stick with Ooma purchase deal, Nancy M. asks: “Can you tell me more about the phone service? I have been looking into getting this for my parents. Does it call internationally as well? Pros and cons please from people who have used it. Can they keep their same number they have had for the past 35 years?
    Thanks!!!”
  • Debbie replies: “We just switched over to Ooma after trying it out for about 2 months and have been very happy with it. We did recently port our phone number to this new service. The porting charge is $39, unless you sign up for the premier (an extra service), which we did as we liked all the extra goodies, such as telemarketing/anonymous call blocking, being able to automatically forward calls to a cell phone in case the internet goes down, extra second number, ability to sync with nest (which we don’t have yet), free calls to Canada, ability to get a text and/or email when someone leaves a voice message, etc. There is a long list of features on the Ooma website as well as a comparison between the basic and premier models. We were paying $44 a month with At&t and I think with all the tax charges and the premier service, Ooma will run us about $15 a month. Without the premier service, it was only around $4 a month. (You get a free trial of the premier service when you sign up, but we liked it so decided to go with the premier service)”
  • And on the Expo Dry Erase Markers deal, Wendy suggests: “Buy some extras now, so when the schools are requesting more in january, you have them (for cheap!)”

Furniture

  • Melissa asks: “Looking for places to buy a comfortable, easy to clean sofa. And of course, the lower the price, the better. We have only gotten couches for free
    from my parents for the past ten years when they upgrade, but we are out of luck this time and very little in the budget to replace one that has developed a terrible smell because my child got ill on it. I have been looking at Big Lots, Hobo, Bargains in a Box. Are there other places that could offer low price points?”
  • Jaci suggests: “Just like us with the recycled furniture! Craig’s list or even if you have a value city furniture by you?”
  • And an idea from peaches: “Melissa I would check out craigslist for used sofas as well as Goodwill and the Salvation Army. You can also join your local freecycle. People give away sofas fairly frequently. You could also post at freecycle that you are looking for one. Things like that go really fast on freecycle if they are in halfway decent condition. Also try checking out some moving sales this weekend, You could also look at Ikea, but there sofas might be more than what you are willing to pay”

Headaches

  • More on the migraines topic from CarolS-T: “I get cluster headaches which are awful. Drinking lots of water definitely helps – 16 oz every 2 hours. I have also found that 1/2 – 1 oz of apple cider vinegar in 8 oz orange juice every morning helps, too. No science to back this up, just my own experience.”

Hot Dog Day

Jewel

Kohl’s

Office Depot | OfficeMax

  • On the $10 SwissGear backpacks, CMKW shares: “Shipping was free for me, it seems like it is based on the $35 per backpack. I got two and it triggered free shipping. I was unable to use any other coupon codes though.”
  • This is good, because Julie comments on the free store pickup option: “Careful on the store pickup option. I ordered 2 on Sunday, but they only pulled 1 and were out of them by the time I picked them (well, it) up on Monday. Then they substituted another brand for the missing backpack. I got home and realized the brand they substituted was absolute crap, and went back for a refund. Of course, the staff there at the time did not have the authority to make the refund, so they told me to come back at 1:00 when someone would be there who can make the refund. So it basically took me 3 trips and over an hour of time spend in their store to pick up 1/2 of my order and get a refund for the other half, and now I still need another backpack. Had I known all of this before, I would have just paid for shipping.”
  • SoapboxTray comments: “The only other coupon code I was able to use was the free Twizzler with $60 in HP ink, which I needed for work anyway. Tried a bunch of others and it removed the backpack code etc. Thanks for posting!”
  • Julie replies: “Yeah, I looked again today and it looks like they changed things around a bit from Sunday. On Sunday they only counted as $10 each towards shipping, but I was able to enter the 20% off code.”

  • A heads up from Diane: “Don’t run to Target for the free dog treats deal – I am in Wood Dale & they are out anywhere within a 20 mile radius & no rain
    checks”

Valli Produce

  • Some Evanston grand opening deals, from peaches: “At the Evanston store pineapplr is $.98 and a 20 pound bag of Idaho potatoes is $1,49. Bareman Milk is also $1.99 a gallon, but you have to have $25 in purchases. I heard that the crowd was not that bad at the Evanston store today. I don’t think they advertised the grand opening that much, and the store is not easily visible while you are driving down Dempster. The closest Valli store is at least 15 miles away too, and so most people in Evanston aren’t familiar with the chain. When the Mariano’s opened up in April in Skokie it was a zoo at the store the first week.. The other Dominick’s store in Evanston is being converted to a Whole Foods store, and that store in having their grand opening in a week on 7/29. That store is much more visible from the road, and so I expect a large crowd for that opening. That location is going to have a wine bar..”
  • And from John W.: “Also at Valli this week, 1 lb. baby carrots for 89 cents.
    The new Evanston store also has a few discounted prices: blueberries and raspberries are 99 cents, sugar and Kellogg’s cereal $1.67, cheap bread and buns for 69 cents.”

Carson’s

  • A note on today’s Carson’s sales from Nancy: “A note about the microfiber sheets, I bought them before and they are cute but very slippery and do not stay on the bed! I guess you could secure the fitted sheets somehow, but for me, not worth it!.”

Chipotle

  • A heads up from Christine on the BOGO Chipotle coupon: “We used our Chiptole coupons last night. Everyone in my family played the game and got a coupon on their phone. when we went to Chipotle only one of the coupons scanned correctly. They did give us BOGO after they saw the coupon on each phone.”
  • And a comment from Jill: “This is a clarification on the post about Chipotle. The Chipotle BOGO text comes to you automatically after taking the quiz. They also send a second text message asking for your zip code if you want to join the mobile program and receive more Chipotle texts and offers.”
  • And Brandy shares: “Just entered the Chipotle thing on my husband’s phone at 10:35 p.m. CST and it gave me an expiration of 8/12. On my phone earlier today, my expiration was 8/11. So if you enter Thursday, it will be 8/13, so on.”

Migraines

  • More advice from Cari: “More on headaches. I try to avoid my triggers (over sleeping, bright lights and strong smells). But am currently trying tea ( a mixture that the people at Teavana made me) which helps a little. And also some essential oils, my friend sells it and made some kind of mixture based on my symptoms. Not giving up my excedrine migraine or my ice pack yet =D . My favorite headache ice pack…which reminds me I should order another as mine is like 10 years old!!!”

  • Also from Kari O., on the Lay’s/Doritos deal: “The fine print on the Cartwheel has been changed. I bought six bags of regular sized Lay’s, used $5/$15 mobile coupon and $3 came off from Cartwheel. Paid less than $7 after RedCard and tax. https://instagram.com/p/5a1xsXMiUb/ This was in Gurnee yesterday. PS: Regular size bags of Doritos should have worked too but we don’t buy them. Too much red 40. But they were scanning valid for the Cartwheel.”
