ALDI

  • For those asking if the fresh meat coupon is in the ad in store, Linda shares: “They had the ad right there as I walked in, and it had the $3 off fresh meat coupon. When the cashier rang me out, she put the coupon in my cart, I assume to use again. I asked if she needed it, and she said no.”

Apps

  • Jay has also been having SavingStar issues: “I’ve been having A LOT of problems with Saving Star all of July and August, and I use it regularly. At least 1-2 times a week. It is frustrating to have to contact customer service, and yes, it is 5-10 days. However, if you just respond to the last email with your “next/new” issue, they respond same day/next day! So don’t submit a new inquiry online. Respond to the rep by email!”

Coupons

  • A heads up from feelgood: “Read on other boards that the 8/30/15 Sunday Red Plum coupon insert has a coupon for a free 60 day Sam’s Club membership, and a second coupon for the free Instant Savings book. Hoping it’s in the Tribune!” I’ll let you know tomorrow…
  • And on the new Crayola coupon, Kari O. suggests: “Use at Target! They have Cartwheel offers to stack, including a 40% off SuperTips Markers….!”

Jewel

  • A find from seachicago: “At the deli: Wunderbar Bologna is $1.99/lb. I found a tear pad right there for $1 off a pound. Seriously cheap bologna!”

Kellogg’s Family Rewards

  • From Maria S.: “25 point Kelloggs Family Rewards code: ITSS-OEAS-Y2LU-VKFR Expires 8/28/15”

Kohl’s

Resale

ALDI

  • From Linda: “Re: Aldi meat coupon. I used it today on sweet Italian sausage, $3.69 for the package. Paid $.75 out of pocket. The cashier had to check with another cashier sbout how to use it, but it scanned just fine. Yay for cheap meat!!”

Dollar Tree

  • A note from seachicago on the Duncan Hines coupon: “I’ve seen Duncan Hines at Dollar Tree a lot lately, especially their “velvets” specialty mixes.”

Jewel

  • Kitty shares: “8.5 oz Kettle Chips are BOGO $2.99 on Mymixx.  When I purchased 2 of the 13 oz size @$3.68 (they were marked $3.99), $3.49 was deducted for the second one.”
  • Jaci comments on the Ice Mountain deal: “Worked like a charm! If you don’t find any on shelve check the front of your store mine had a ton. Pizza deal was awesome also ton a lot of stock.”
  • And dani combined the Ice Mountain with the DiGiorno deal: “I bought 3 cases and 3 Digiorno pizzas (thin) to get to the Nestle Buy $20, Save $5 sale. Used 3 – .75 coupon and 3- 1.00 coupon. got back $2 cat for digiorno pizza and 2.25 cat for water. so, total 6.55. good deal.”
  • From Michelle b on the Ice Mountain deal: “If you buy 12, $5 comes off instantly on the Nestlé deal ($5 off instant when you spend $20) Use 12 qs and get the 2.25 Catalina. 3.75 for 12 packs of water.”

Meijer

  • Dawn comments on the free Propel deal: “i think they have the sizes wrong. we bought the regular propel water yesterday and they are 710 ml. i didn’t see the fitness water at all at meijer but maybe we missed it. there was a deal on gatorade that if you bought 2 8-packs of gatorade you got 3 750ml bottles of propel for free but we couldn’t find the 750ml bottles……they gave us the 710ml bottles instead for free……weird!”
  • Sabrina doesn’t recommend it: “I bought 11 of the giant bottles of the Propel Electrolyte water to bring to an outside concert at Millenium park. The water tastes terrible and even though it was close to 100 that day, everyone that came with preferred to drink from the nasty water fountains that were providing hot water rather than drink the Propel water. To me it sort of tasted like a flavorless Gatorade, salty with a slimy mouth feel.”

Reader requests

  • Lori asks: “Anybody know of a Highlights Magazine deal? My dd wants this for her bday and I can’t find a deal on it.” I know it’s not much, but here’s a $5 off offer: http://bit.ly/1PVVueH — anyone else?
  • And jane has a question: “Can anyone recommend a book for kids how save and use money wisely. Would like to get for my nephew”

SavingStar

  • From Like2save: “Like feelgood, I discovered that SavingStar is not crediting my account properly. It seems to be happening at all stores, including receipt submission stores, not just Jewel. I contacted customer service on several occasions. By the way, customer service responds within 5-10 BUSINESS days.”
  • Shandelle is also having issues: “I hate the stores in Ibotta the require a card. It almost never works. Over the weekend I wasted so much time in an email going back and forth with one of their reps who was refusing to give me credit and passing off my complaints as “feedback” – um, no, your system is broken and I have proof I bought this item; this isn’t “feedback” !! I never used to have problems with Savings Star crediting my stuff. But lately it’s been a small problem here and there. When Jewel did the free Nature Valley nut bars a couple weeks ago, there was also a coupon for $.75 off a box on Savings Star. It never applied. But maybe it was because it came through as $0 and somehow their system didn’t realize I “bought” it. Their customer service fixed it no questions asked and they almost always do. I’ve had a lot of the produce offers not credit and they just give me credit without even putting up a fight. The problem is their service is soooo slow now. They take upwards to 15 days to get back to you now. Wonder why they don’t just hire more people?!”

Staples

Valli Produce

  • John W shares: “The Evanston store’s prices are similar this week, although it has a $10 off $50 coupon instead of $10 off $75. There is an extra 2-page spread in the Evanston ad with a few deals: Shish Kabobs, $2.99/lb limit 6. Whole catfish $1.99/lb. Focaccia bread, 99 cents. Dutch Farms chicken kievs, 67 cents. Imported Parmigiano Reggiano, $8.99/lb. Eggland’s Best organic large eggs, $2.77. Wrapped candy, 99 cents/lb. Valli is also giving away a back-to-school gift basket at each location, entry here: https://www.facebook.com/valliproduce?app_data=%7B%7D&v=app_190076381016644.”

*** 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.

ALDI

  • On the $3 off meat coupon, from Valentina S.: “I got this $3.00 off meat coupon in the ad at ALDI on 6415 S Cass Ave, Westmont and used it on one package of 73% lean ground beef, 5 lbs., $12.99. $9.99 + tax for 5 lbs of ground beef after coupon!”
  • But Priscilla comments: “I just went to Aldi and used the meat coupon on a package of lean ground turkey for 3.29 and the cashier said that in order to use it that I had to purcahse 2 pkgs of meat. So I was puzzled and she called to the manager and he said ok, but I will check with corporate to verify details of coupon. Anyone else have trouble?” The wording on the coupon is “$3.00 off fresh meat with any fresh meat purchase.” So I think that’s unclear — do they mean $3.00 off any fresh meat purchase, or $3.00 off fresh meat when you buy another fresh meat? Although I’m not sure why they wouldn’t just say $3.00/2 packages if they intended that, to avoid confusion.
  • Maria S. asks: “Does anyone know if the paper ad at the store has the coupon?”
  • Joanne says: “I live in Tinley Park and my ad does NOT have this coupon.”
  • Jane comments: “I live in Bourbonnais and my ad ALSO does not have that nice meat coupon. I even checked in the actual newspaper and it is not there in either my local or my Tribune today. I’m guessing they may put in in the paper tomorrow? We can only hope.”

Amazon

Coupons

  • On today’s new chocolate coupon, from Catherine: “The Ghiradelli Coupon has a long expiration date- 12/31/2015. Plenty of time to find it on sale or better yet a discontinued flavor on clearance!”

Jewel

digio

  • From SmartShopper: Just came back from Jewel. I did the DiGiiorno Pizza deal. I mixed and matched 4 participating pizzas (rising crust and pizzeria varieties). Used three 1.00/1 manufacture principles. I did receive the $3 dollars Catalina. $2.00 Pizza is a great price!
  • And feelgood asks: “Is anyone else having problems with SavingStar tracking receipts and adding payouts to their account? I added my Jewel MyMixx number to SavingStar a few months ago, and for a while all items on my SavingStar list paid out. In the past two weeks, I added 4 SavingStar items to my list and purchased them at Jewel with my MyMixx number, none of them have paid out. I looked on the SavingStar facebook page and noticed others waiting 2 weeks or more with no payout.” I JUST got something from a Jewel trip like three weeks ago that posted to my SavingStar, so it may just be slow — anyone else?
  • Finds from Jane: “Just got back from Jewel and they have the fake crab priced at $2.50 for the one you buy. So after using 2- 75c coupons, it comes to 50c each when you get 2! Naturally I had to argue with a (veteran) checker that I could indeed use a coupon on the free item. But I also scored on the Tribe hummus. Watch for peelies off short dated ones, I found some for all 3 ($1 stickers), making them only 49c for all 3! That’s only 16c each after the coupons and deal. I was happy with this trip!”

Mariano’s

  • Julie asks: “So I am completely not impressed by the loyalty card linking to Ibotta. I have now been to Mariano’s on 2 different occasions, purchasing several items eligible for rebates and NOTHING! No credits whatsoever. I made sure that the rebates were unlocked beforehand and made sure to give them my card (once scanning my actual card and once scanning the card through the ibotta app). I contacted ibotta at the end of last week and today got a response saying they don’t show any submissions since July. This is definitely not easier than taking a picture of my receipt. Has anyone else had success with this? I am really annoyed.”
  • Heads up from Karen: “I went to meijer today and was trying to get my free maricle whip and the 5 birthday cake gums. They were out of both and the lady at the service desk told me if they run out you are out of luck! no rainchecks! just as supply lasts. Bummer!”

Meijer

  • On this week’s mPerks deal, joe asks: “Where exactly are the gums in the store? I tried by the checkout lane, the candy aisle and the cake section,… no luck”
  • And feelgood replies: “By the checkout lane at my Meijer. They were on the top shelf on the left side above all the other gum. Package is white and pink about 3″ by 4″, doesn’t look like regular gum sticks, so kind of easy to miss.”
  • Meg reminds us: “Just wanted to mention, if you got those $2 produce or $2 dairy catalina…..they roll. Each time I used one of those, I got both (one of each) every single time. Make sure not to use mperks or card as a payment. I paid cash each time and got them. I also noticed that when you use the cataline from the same day, it does not give out those catalinas. I have been doing this for the past three days 2 -3 transactions of dairy and produce.”

Menards

  • Don points out: “Sprecher 4 pack soda, $1.27. – this was typo in paper… this price is after rebate and limit 4…. still great deal.”

Pete’s

  • Susie recommends the sale Halal chicken: “The Mediterranean whole chicken on sale for $1.49 is a very good price. I bought it before when Pete’s first opened in Bridgeview to try it. The chicken is very tender and juicy. I will be picking up some this week. :)”
  • And Trish shares that: “Oak Park Pete’s opens 9/2!”

Tickets

  • Patty comments on the Chicago Ultimate Women’s Expo: “I also saw that you can get free tickets at every Starbucks, as they are the big sponsor for the expo. The sign said that stores should have tickets in by Aug 18th. The sign said that it was good for all parts of the expo.”

Apps

CVS

  • Heads up from Kitty: “Looks like the Edge offer that was limit 2 yesterday is limit 1 today,  Tuesday.”

Dental

  • Don also recommends this place for affordable dental work: “In regards of the Midwestern University Clinics 630-743-4500 in Downers Grove that Christine kindly passed along…. I just got done with extensive dental work and everything said about this incredible place is true. Read her review…. they also have a sliding scale for financial need.”

Jewel

  • Some clearance finds from Lisa: “Jewel Clearance.-$1.00 MM -i just picked up some L’Oreal Infallible Lipsticks on the clearance end cap for $1.99. Used the 08-09 RP (ex Sep 05) L’Oreal Infallible Pro Last 2 Step Lip Color $3.00 /1 coupon. Also picked up some Tazo Camomile K Cups for net .69 a box. They were $2.69 and I used the 07-12 S (ex Oct 12) Tazo Tea K Cups, 10 or 16 ct $2.00 /1. The overage from the lipsticks actually more than paid for the tea so it was a fruitful stop. I actually went there for the free fruit things Rachel wrote about. This was the Bourbonnais store and they do not have any left but just in case your Jewel is clearing the same things bring your coupons with you.”

Mariano’s

  • News from Brandy: “Speaking of Dominick’s, the former location on Naper Blvd./75th street in Naperville is under serious construction (gutted and right side totally demolished!) to get started on the Mariano’s transformation. Can’t freaking wait! Until then, I will continue to ignore and be jealous of the Mariano’s highlights and Wednesday doubles posts. :/”

Meijer

  • Another mPerks freebie from feelgood: “Also check your mPerks for a $5.00 off 5 coupon on Project 7 Birthday Cake Gourmet Gum, redeem thru 8/29. Gum reported to be $0.99 each, so 5 free gum!”
  • And deals from S.T.: “I picked up 2 Melt Organic Spreads at Meijer today going for BOGO Free. I forgot to check for how long but I assume it’s until Wed. It’s $3.99 and they had Original & Honey flavors. I also had a $1 for this product in my Ibotta app. I wish I checked my email before heading out because they emailed me a $2 off coupon and it’s also here: http://www.meltorganic.com/special-offers/. Also, if you’re doing the but 8 & get $8 off Snyder’s of Hanover Pretzel Pieces was included in the deal with the final price of $1.99. There is a $1 Ibotta for Snyder’s as well.” Here’s a coupon for $.55/1 bag Snyder’s of Hanover pretzel pieces.

Reader requests

  • Abby is wondering: “Has anyone had any luck finding a bathroom rug that you can use the $5 off mperk?”
  • Mandy replies to yesterday’s question about personal checks: “I don’t know what is a good price for personal checks because my bank gives them for free, but, I used to buy from Walmart online personal checks and at the time they were the most reasonable to me.”

Rebates

  • Ella asks: “Has anyone received their rebate money from the Bacardi offer a little while back?”
  • And feelgood replies: “Haven’t received mine yet. Everyone I know who sent away for the rebate hasn’t received theirs, either. The December one took forever to arrive also.”

Settlements

Target

  • On the today only IAMS dog food deal, Jacque says: “My Target Wood Dale had additional 2.00 coupons on each bag also! 9.99 5 pounds but some bags had 20% in the bags”
  • Same price for nilo: “9.99 at my store.”

Walgreens

  • A surprise find from Tamara: “I found an unexpected deal on TreSemme tonight at Walgreens. I bought 1 hairspray and 1 heat tamer spray at $4 each. I only had one $1 coupon so I used that. Then I got back a $4 RR! This means that each product ended up being $1.50 each. If you had two coupons to use then they would be $1 each.”

CVS

  • Kitty comments: “At CVS, the Edge shave cream deal is limit 2, not 1 as advertised. The orange can labelled sensitive is $2.99.  Others are $3.49.  These prices were in Evanston and Niles.”

Dental

  • On yesterday’s cheap dental care question, a response from christine:” Jeff, I called the Midwestern University Clinics 630-743-4500 in Downers Grove recently. This is a university with a dental school where the students would be working on you. You can call to get more information but the cost is really minimal. We are in the process of being evaluated to see if we would be good candidates for the school You can have all sorts of things done here: cavities, sealants, crowns etc. There is a lengthy process, but we have no dental insurance so this looks like a good alternative.”
  • And miriam shares: “For kids dentist I take my kids to the VNA clinic in Elgin they only take kids but the doctors are awsome 8474717370”
  • And yvette suggests: “Jeff, try 1st Family Dental. I’ve been going to the Roselle office, but they have other locations: http://1stfamilydental.com/ I don’t know about the other offices, but the Roselle one is great. Very modern, top equipment, very professional, excellent care!”

Enchiladas

  • Making enchiladas? A suggestion from jen: “If you don’t feel like making Enchilada sauce, I recommend the Rick Bayless Frontera red chile enchilada pouches – it’s fantastic. I make almost everything from scratch but this is a great pre-made product. I use two pouches for a large tray of 12 enchiladas.
  • And from Celmarie: “I make my enchiladas like a lasagna. I alternate layers of sauce, tortilla, chicken, corn , black beans and cheese.”

Kmart

  • A deal from feelgood: “FREE 12-pk Smart Sense 8 oz water on Friday 8./28 at Kmart. Text Free to 56278, reply Y, then click for mobile coupon.”

Meijer

  • Another note from Kitty: “I was at Niles Meijer today, Monday, to use the last of my $2 produce and dairy coupons. Lo and behold, I used one produce coupon and got back BOTH a produce and a dairy coupon. It worked with the older ones, but not when I used one of the ones I got today.  Maybe another day?”
  • And from karen: “fyi, I have ore ida potatoes on savingsstar. and Jacks pizza has a catalina that printed for me. I got $4 for buying 6. and I had 2 previously available printables 75/1 so it was a pretty good deal if you like Jacks!”

Reader requests

  • Lori asks: “Anyone know where to get checks cheap if you are a returning customer? I went to order from a few companies and the deals are for newbies only.”

School supplies

  • A heads up from seachicago: “FYI: as of today, one Expo *or* Sharpie coupon per customer; not multiples or one of each, *one or the other*. Corporate issued a memo, cashier showed it to me. Apparently, it was “too chaotic” yesterday with people trying to get their free Expos and cheap Sharpies!!!”

Coupons

  • A heads up from Alice on the BOGO YoBaby coupon: “Hurry to use them, printing expiration date 08/30. I saw these 3.99 at Target and Garden Fresh and 4.29 or 4.59 can’t remember, at Jewel”
  • Lucky comments on the new Red Plum coupons: “Thanks! Print the Aunt Millie’s coupon and use at Meijer through Wednesday for $.49 bread” Reminder: This one is ZIP specific. Try 60148 here if you don’t see it.

Frontier

  • More on those cheap Frontier flights from Kari O.: “This happens ALL the time with frontier! They bank on the idea that people cannot physically make it from the check-in counter to the planes gate in the limited time allowed. I watched them refuse to allow people to board because it was only 23 minutes before take off and they require you to get there 30 minutes before scheduled take off. Apparently they had already given their seats away because they considered this couple “no shows”.”

Jet.com

  • Elizabeth comments on Facebook: “Just ordered 144 Tide Pods from jet.com for $16.66. Buy two 72 count for $27 and the codes SAVELOTS for $10 off. Check the box for no free return shipping and the use the code CURISMA to extend the trial account to 12 months. Found the deal on SD. Check the discussion there for jet.com hold amounts. May not be for the faint of heart.”

Jewel

  • Looking for the free Smucker’s Fruit-fulls? Melissa comments: “The Jewel in Villa Park had plenty!”
  • And Karen says: “I had to ask at my jewel..they are located in the aisle with the peanut butter :) There were plenty of all flavors at 179th and Wolf in Orland Park.”
  • Teresa found them: “I just got back and my jewel (River Forest) did have them with the other squeezable fruit. They had plenty of them.”
  • Laura comments on those: “I have seen the Smucker’s Fruit-Fulls clearanced recently at the Jewel near me. They must be giving them away for free to get rid of them. They do not taste as good as other fruit pouches. The strawberry variety tastes like strawberry jelly not applesauce and who wants to eat jelly plain”
  • Cleob concurs: “I found the Smucker’s Fruit Fulls on center aisle endcap nearby where the fruitpullups/granola boxes are located, at Rand/AH, priced 3.99 for 4 ct. I did not realize this was a fruit pouch product, but has thick consistency, thicker than applesauce, and weird off-taste with the added ingredients. I agree does not taste that good.”
  • Mary T. suggests: “I have tried them and they are ok. I like to add it to my Plain Greek Yogurt to help my Yogurt taste better :)”
  • Teresa comments: “With the Goose Island or Leinenkugel’s I got there was a $3.00 off Produce/Beer coupon, I got my 2 spinach for free (I would have gotten 3, if I had know about this deal)!!!”

Reader requests

  • Jeff is looking for some advice: “Our children qualify for the state health insurance, including dental. We saw one of the dentists who is part of this program, but we will not go back. The place looked outdated and a bit run down and the hygienist kept cussing in front of our son because the x-rays didn’t work out…. Needless to say, not a good experience and not a place I trust. Our 10-year old needs a couple cavities taken care of, so I was wondering if any of you have state dentists that you like and trust and can recommend (or perhaps a “real” dentist who would take us!!). We live in the Wheaton/Glen Ellyn area, but any recommendations are welcome!! Thanks a lot!”
  • And cea asks: “I wasn’t able to print the Little Remedies coupon because it said I had to have a “physical printer” connected to my computer. I’m assuming that meant that I can’t print because I have a wireless printer now . . . which would be pretty strange because most new printers sold today are wireless. Did anybody else have this problem?” I haven’t been able to print from that site since upgrading to Windows 10, so maybe that’s the issue…

Valli Produce

  • Peaches checked out the new Evanston store: “Hi- I was at the Evanston store yesterday for the grand opening, and they had lots of free samples, including a free Vienna hot dog including a free nun and condiments. All they had in the way of condiments was mustard, hot peppers and relish though. The guy in front of me asked for ketchup, which of course they did not have. They were the busiest that I had seen them since the store opened. They have more free samples until 4:00 this afternoon. I just got the Dutch Farms cheese, a gallon of milk and some green bananas. They did not have any ripe ones.”

Freebies

  • From feelgood: “Free Domino’s 2-topping pan pizza, entry starts Monday 8/24 at 2 pm central time. Got a free pizza last month, the Italian sausage and bacon with garlic parmesan white sauce was delicious! Details here: http://mlb.mlb.com/sponsors/dominos/dominono/index.jsp

Frontier

  • If you picked up the cheap Frontier flights yesterday, Judy S. warns: “We were at O’hare on Tues, 8/13 and the security line was horribly long. Found out that was the line for Frontier to check bags and go through security. We went to a different security and had a short line. If you fly Frontier, get there really early. What a mess.”
  • And from Kari O.: “Frontier actually suggests you get there 3 hours early, which is hilarious because they don’t pay for employees to work the desk until after 3. So, depending on what your flight time is, they only arrive about 45 minutes before your plane takes off. That’s why their line is so long.”
  • Also from Kari O.: “I have flown frontier a few times over the past year and each time has been a gigantic nightmare. Don’t fall for their über cheap flights because they nickel and dime you with the most absurd fees. If you HAVE to fly Frontier, make sure to purchase their “Classic Plus” ticket because even though it’s $80 more than their value flights, you’ll actually save money after all the extra fees for “economy” tickets. This won’t stop you from rolling your eyes or wanting to riot while waiting in absurdly long lines, BUT you’ll get to board the plane first! lol”

Jewel

  • Shandelle asks on the free Smucker’s Fruit-Fulls: “Anyone able to find these? The Jewel I just stopped at had no spot on the shelf for this where the other brands of fruit squeeze pouches are.”

Meijer

  • Linda asks: “Does anyone know if you can do more than one “Buy 8, Save $8″ deal in the same transaction? Thanks!”

  • Heads up from Shandelle on the Almay deal: “Did this tonight and the cashier had to fix all of it manually. The cardboard display says ALL Almay products are BOGO 50% off. The waterproof 25% more rang up at $5.99 each but not the BOGO half off. The beauty counter clerk then tried the smaller size without the bonus and those rang up for like $6.50 but the BOGO half off DID apply… haha what?? In the end she couldn’t figure it out and just changed the prices. The coupons came off just fine. Paid $1.82 after the tax. HOWEVER the stupid 1000 bonus points for buying 2 did not apply. I was in a hurry and didn’t notice. I emailed them because I don’t feel like going back to the store tomorrow to do a return… sigh.”
  • From Patty on the Walgreens Kleenex deal: “The .75/3 also states it’s .75/1 bundle pack. BTW, if you purchase (2) 3-pack bundles, you get a $1 catalina, and if you purchase (2) 4-pack bundles, you receive a $2 catalina.”

Costco

  • From SoapboxTray: “Seriously love their Kale salad in the bag. Yum. Easy prep. and like 4.99 for giant bag of deliciousness. They had a really great deal on Kraft cheese slices, I cannot recall the price but it too had an instant rebate. I bought one, we are freezing sandwiches and the kids can then grab them for lunches. I think it was 7.99 for 96 slices?”
  • And on the LED light bulb deal, from Susie: “Thanks that’s a great price on the light bulbs even if you have to pay taxes on the $14.99 price. My husband bought a 3 pack at menards for $14.99 because he wanted to see the difference between light bulbs and loved the way the foyer was brightly lit. However $14.99 is a lot of money, $2.99 is much better :)”

Costco

  • Kari O. shares an article: “Out of curiosity since you also posted about Costco today… Did you know Costco’s shrimp is a “product of human slavery”? So, that makes this Mariano’s deal for wild caught American shrimp just a little bit better! http://www.ksl.com/?sid=36053690&nid=157&title=lawsuit-against-costco-label-shrimp-as-product-of-slavery I know. Random article, but you posted Costco AND shrimp today. lol”
  • Julie is looking for: “Anyone know of any new membership deals for Costco? Our Sam’s Club membership just ran out and we’ll need to wait either 3 or 6 months to do another “new” membership deal there. We aren’t that impressed with them either and want to switch to Costco anyway. TIA”
  • And from Brenda: “I’m also looking for a Costo deal on memberships”

Jewel

  • A heads up from rifat on the free Body Armor MyMixx deal at Jewel this week: “Body Armor = sugars (18g per serving) and the bottle is about 2 servings!”

Mariano’s

Meijer

  • Additions to this week’s Meijer deals from Maria V. “I have a mperks coupon for $2.00 off 2 ziploc brand slider bags or containers but it expires 08/22/15. Then I also have Ibotta rebate for Ziploc bags ($1.00 back when you purchase 2 in the same transaction) and ziploc containers ($0.50 back when you purchase one ziploc container).”

Reader requests

  • Rebecca asks: “Any back-to-school eye exam specials out there that you know of? When my oldest entered K 2 years ago, he needed one, and JCP Optical had a $20 kids exam special. Now my youngest needs one, and I can’t find any price info or specials on anyone’s sites anymore! Thanks!” Back on the 2nd JCP had an ad in the inserts: JCP ad for $39 children’s eye exams (16 and under) and $29.99 children’s eyeglasses. You can check to see if the price is still good. Visionworks has had $42 coupons in SmartSource almost every week. Anyone seen one cheaper?

Walgreens

  • Maggie has an even better update to the Kleenex deal at Walgreens: “I was planning to get these, but then found that the 4-pack of 160 sheets each is on sale for $4.99. There’s a walgreens store coupon for $1 in the monthly book. I also used the 75 c printable so my total came to $3.24. I got 30 store points and I will try to use Ibotta. This seemed like a good deal to me because these boxes are a lot bigger… The Ibotta amount turned out to be $1.50 for the multi pack…. This deal just got better!😀”
  • Valentina S. concurs: “I did exactly the same deal as Maggie. No need to worry about a Catalina that would expire in two weeks.”
  • Lisa comments: “Walgreens-Thr money making Colgate deal is rolling so you can rinse/repeat.”

  • Kitty comments on the new Lip Smacker coupon: “I have seen them at Target. The single pack I saw was $1.47. There are also multi-packs.”

Walgreens

  • Samantha has an alternative if you’re not in need of Diaper Genie refills: “Another deal with this store coupon is the Playtex bottles or cups.  They are on sale with card for 3.99-2.00 store coupon.

  • On the Almay makeup remover deal, from Kitty: “It doesn’t beep. Only certain packages always ring at $5.99. They are the 25% more bonus packs which can sometimes be found on a separate cardboard display. Otherwise the price varies by store.”

Whole Foods

  • Maureen recommends the sale cookies this week: “Ah, Carol’s Cookies! They are so delicious! First encountered them 16 yrs. ago at Northwestern Hospital when my husband was an inpatient. I was 8 months pregnant at the time and stressed out beyond belief, but knowing I could go down to the gift shop and get myself one every day literally kept me going!”
