Here’s an updated Meijer deal from feelgood: Energizer MAX 8 pack batteries are on sale $5.99 each, and through today 12/17 you will get back a $5.00 Catalina when you buy four. Look for specially marked $8 rebate wyb two packages (you should be able to see the rebate through the packaging), and if you find those:

  • Buy four packs for $23.96.
  • Use four $1.50/1 printable coupons here = $17.96.
  • Get back a $5.00 store Catalina = $12.96.
  • Send in for $16 in rebates = $3.04 money maker!

Note: This is a store Catalina, so will not roll. The rebate deal runs through 4/30/15. Feelgood notes that there are some complaints on the Energizer Facebook page that some people are finding packages with expired rebate forms — so check expiration dates on packages and try to find newer packaging, too.

Today they sent a response that seemed to regard a Via Taste Test, and it seems like I will receive a free bag of coffee. Either way is fine with me, but I’m wondering if anyone else received this email, rather than the $5 g.c. confirmation.”

Coke Rewards

  • SmartShopper commented on $25 Best Buy Gift card for 625 My Coke Rewards Points, “Awesome deal for the Best Buy gift card through My Coke Rewards. Ordered it…Thanks! BTW, the free 12 pack of Coke is still only 30 points as of Tuesday morning. (check to see that this is still good if you plan to do this deal)

California Pizza Kitchen Gift Cards

  • Brandy sent this deal, “Two $50 gift cards can usually be purchased at Costco as well for CPK at $79.99… same price year around.”

Coupons

  • Liz found a coupon and a deal, “There was a .75 off 2 coupon this past weekend in the paper on certain Christmas skittles..star burst lifesavers….walmart has many of the candy pictured for 1.00 which makes nice stocking stuffers”
  • Siv sent some deals on Maybelline Great Lash or Baby Lips $2.79 or less shipped, “Both of these Maybelline items are also BOGO 50% off, even with S & S: http://amzn.to/1AcUY3j I got 2 of these which also have a 25% coupon, BOGO 50%, and is S & S elgible: http://amzn.to/1GbyvI2 “

Reader Requests

  • Liz sent this comment on buying a car, “Go to Consumers Reports online. For a few dollars you can subscribe for a month and then cancel anytime. They have a list of the best used cars under $5000, under $10000 etc. We bought a Vibe off this list last year and we are very happy!”
  • Kay adds, “I was able to google some lists of best cars – by price, by safety, under a certain dollar amount. You can also check your library for Consumer Reports” (Rachel sent the same comment! ;) )
  • John W sent this comment, “For used cars, I always buy on Craigslist, if you can pay cash without needing a loan. You have to be careful, but the deals are always better than a car dealer (and you can’t trust them, either). Always go with someone to look at cars, use the blue book but be wary of a deal that’s too good, do an autocheck, have a mechanic check out the car before you buy, do the final transaction inside your bank.
  • Shirley adds, “Stay away from ebay. Craigslist is good but make sure the neighborhood you are going is safe. If you buy from a car dealer, you have better negotiation power if you don’t trade in your car and have your own finance line up. If the car dealer does not want to come down in price and you really like the car a lot, try add something to the package (remote car starter or free car wash for x months).”
  • Seachicago weighs in, “Don’t rule out a “luxury” car dealership, for a decent used car at a reasonable price.  They often have a variety of makes and models, and you might have a better experience.  We got a good deal and had a great experience at Muller Acura in NW Indiana (so good I want to give them a shout-out!).”
  • Jill has another option, “We have bought 2 cars through Costco. Costco doesn’t actually sell the cars but sends you to a dealership in their network and sets a price. The first time we used that price to haggle with a different dealership and it served us well. Most recently we just bought through the dealership Costco recommended and are happy with that transaction too.”
  • One more option from Artie, “http://www.wheelsofchicagoland.com/  Good reviews on Yelp and rated A+ by BBB  They buy cars but sell them too”
  • John has another question, “I also have a question about Obamacare. Are there any sites or blogs or news reports about the best quality/deals on the health insurance options in Illinois? I was looking at Land of Lincoln LLH Family Health Network Silver 3100, which for me is $272/mo, $100 deductible, $2250 max out of pocket, pretty good coverage.
  • Kay asks, “Have you tried the “get covered Illinois” website? I think they can help you find the best plan”
  • Maggie adds,”Whatever plan you pick, make sure your doctors are accepting it (and even your favorite hospital!). That sure can make a difference – our doctors are not accepting some of the BCBS plans, so that helped make our decision.”
  • Peaches sends a comment, “I’ve had  a Blue Cross PPO Choice plan this year.  It was $200 a month cheaper than their regular PPO plan, and my doctor and my hospital are part of the plan.  The only thing is there are not a lot of mental health and holistic doctors that take Choice.  One of mine does not, but she does not take PPO, and I would always have to submit her invoices to BCBS anyway before I got on this plan, and I would never know how much they would pay.  I found out with the Choice plan if you go to a provider that is not part of the Choice network, there is an additional $5,200 deductible either just for that provider or for the total bills for all of the non Choice providers I go to.  BCBS got 90% of the business on the marketplace last year, and there were just no other really good options.  I looked at Land of Lincoln, but my doctor was not part of their plan, and they were way more expensive than BCBS.  Kaiser Family Foundation has a good site for Obamacare.  I also know of an insurance agent that is wonderful that is on Belmont in Chicago, that only deals in health insurance.  You can PM me if you are interested.  Good luck with the marketplace.  I just turned 65, and so Jordan helped me pick a medicare plan, but nobody told me that I had to call the marketplace to cancel my old plan instead of BCBS, and right now I have two plans, and the marketplace cannot cancel my first plan until 12/20, and they can’t back date it.”
  • Mandy has some advice, “Be wary of the max. out of pocket.  Some of the copays and other charges do not count toward it.  I looked at one plan that sounded good, but, it was $250 per day copay for inpatient hospital and from what I was reading it does not count toward out of pocket.  If you were in the hospital many days, it would be very expensive.  I think you should talk with someone that really knows for sure.”
  • Silviavm has a question about the mperks 10 free photos,”the app is not working for me on my iPhone for some reason.  it is forcing me to select all my pics which total out to 836 and then it gets me to crop and closes!  Anyone else try?”
  • Laura is wondering if anyone is collecting the stamps from Jewel for the Cuisinartcookware for donation.

Rebates

  • A reminder from Stacey that the $5 Cascade rebate is still available.
  • Kim sent more information on VEEV-a las rebates!, “If you do the Veev vodka rebate on Ibotta, you also qualify for the$10  December bonus. I just got back $25 through Ibotta, I am waiting for Snap to credit, I am working on Berry Cart and I was able to use a coupon in my stash. This may be my biggest money maker ever at $23. If only I had an iphone and could use Shrink.”

Target

  • Stacey sent some Target deals, “Shopped tonight at Batavia Target-this was the most exciting: I bought 4 blue Barilla pasta boxes (.99 each in Batavia), received one free, (so paid for 3) Stocked up on Oscar Meyer wienies-Cartwheel had 25% off, limit 4, mine ends 12/13. Progresso soups were 1.42, Cartwheel had 10% off thru 12/13, so 1.27. Philips String lights buy 3 get 1 free, (so paying for 2-$11.99 each). From pic you’ll see I bought “B5″ style. Sorry if you already know all this; I don’t always have time to read all the posts.”

Ultra

  • Lisa sent a comment on the Ultra Foods Deals for this week, “There is. Also an expired bogo that you can use for the Patene if you are planning on buying it.” Rachel adds, “Pantene sale is $2.88 through today 12/9.”

Walmart

  • Seachicago found a better deal for Craisins than CVS, “Found a better deal on the Craisins at Walmart—too late for me, but maybe not for you!  10 oz. bags (several varieties, incl. reduced sugar/calorie) were $1.88.  Equal to 44 cents/5 oz. bag, and your coupons will get you twice as much (11/23 RP)—looks like a good recipe for oatmeal craisin chocolate chunk cookies, too, right above the coupon.”

Color Changing Bulb With Remote, $3.99 shipped

  • Jamie comments on the deal, “It’s not shipping until dec 19- jan something. But I have one of these and get a ton of compliments from my neighbors. I paid three times as much so I ordered them one at this price.

Fit Bit

  • Martha comments about a Fit Bit comment from yesterday, “Thanks for the heads up on the RR Points from the Fit Bits Tami.  I hadn’t checked and sure enough I only got the 30k.  Did they give you much trouble to get the additional points?”

Jewel

  • Peaches comments on Jewel’s New Big Book of Savings, “I love the Tabatchnik soup, and I stock up when it goes on sale.  It is usually either in the kosher section or in the frozen natural foods section.  The chicken noodle is especially good, but the split pea soup I love too.  Don’t forget that the midnight madness sale starts at 3:00 pm at all Jewels, and goes until midnight.  They have sugar for $1.48 a bag, and I am going to pick up a bag of it, and they have 10 pounds of potatoes on sale for $.97.  I don’t need potatoes though.  The Jewel at Chicago Avenue had broccoli crowns on sale for $.29 a pound right before Thanksgiving, and I was able to pick up four decent ones.Kay comments, “I was at Jewel today at about 2 pm and the potatoes were already on sale. Russet and red. Right inside the door. Not sure if that was the ‘madness’ price or just a sale price.”

Reader Requests

  • Benita has a question about the MPerks from yesterday, “Under what category is the women’s panty under in mperks? Thanks”
  • Debbie has the same question, “I looked under Women’s Apparel and couldn’t find it.  I’d like to know where Outlander found it also.  Thanks!”
  • Meg answers, “I had the free panty offer in two of my accounts. One was under Women’s Apparel and the other was not. I found it in the coupons-first page. HTH.”
  • Debbie comments again, “I’m still not finding it, probably gone.  I found 3 other items under Women’s Apparel, though.”
  • Smartshopper also comments, “Re: Meijer Mperks: Looked in both the Women’s Apparel and scrolled through all the coupons and I did not get the free women’s panty.”
  • Tina has a question about laser pegs, “Does anyone have any feedback on these? On some, the reviews are awful – like, they say the pieces don’t stay together at all. And then other reviews rave about them! We don’t have any, so I’m totally unsure!”
  • Tammy responds to Tina, “Hi Tina! We picked some up over the summer and they are great. They work with legos we already have and they light up, flash or stay on, or when we play music, they flash to the music, or television or even talking! You choose the setting on the “power base”.  Both my daughters like them as much as my son does! I have read the reviews on amazon also, (that’s where we bought ours). It looks like they had a few kits a year or two ago that were in simple white boxes with a logo and colorful image or simple black boxes with a logo and colorful image – those are the ones where the lego type pieces don’t fit together well. The new black boxes, like the one Rachel put up there, are the ones to buy. Some amazon sellers will be selling the “old laser pegs” and customers leave reviews for the new ones, since they don’t know the difference or the amazon seller just mislead them. If you buy them from the laser pegs store, you won’t have anything to worry about.” :) Merry Christmas! Tammy

Rebates

  • Shandelle comments on the Veev rebate, “I don’t think you get the $9 rebate twice in Ibotta. I got $9 the first time and redeemed it. Now it’s only for $3 and says if you redeem the VitaFrute “rebate” twice it’s a $3 bonus. I want to say it was like this previously when it was a $6 rebate. After the first redemption, the rebate reduced in value but you still got a bonus for buying it twice in 2 shopping trips.
  • Shandelle continues, “Also to note on Shrink: The Veev loyalty bonus points are separate from the ones for just produce and other things. I redeemed 2 receipts for VitaFrute from a couple weeks ago and wondered why I hadn’t received my 3000 loyalty points. When I emailed to ask, they said different brands have their own loyalty systems. Maybe that was explained on here before, but I was thinking 3000 pts would be $3.50 in cash but it’s not. They have different tiers within the Veev loyalty program also. Each bottle is 1500 loyalty pts separate (3200 pts if 2 bought together). But at 15,000 points they do offer $15 cash back. The rest are for VitaFrute and Veev coupons and freebies.”

Recipes

  • Christie has an idea about using the Veev Vodka, “I have toyed with making my own vanilla extract .  You use vodka to make it.  It takes a few weeks to ferment, so I don’t think it will be done by Christmas, but sounds like a great idea!”

Restaurant & Retail Holiday Bonus Gift Card Offers

  • Jen sent another gift card deal, “RockBottom Brewery has 5$ gift card with every 25 you spend.”
