Stopped by Jewel this morning to check out the anniversary sale, and here are some things to look for:

  • If you’re buying the $.99 Kraft BBQ sauce, look for $1.00/2 peelies. Also the ones I saw have new packaging and now no HFCS! (Still tons of sugar, but now actual sugar at least.)
  • Only the plain vanilla Pillsbury frosting was priced at $1.25 on the buy six save $3.00 instant savings deal. All the other varieties were tagged for the instant but priced and rang at $1.79, so would be $1.29 after instant rather than $.75.
  • Look for $1.00/2 tearpads by Smucker’s ice cream toppings. They’re $1.17 on the instant savings deal wyb six mix/match items, so just $.67 after coupon + instant.
  • If you’re buying Quaker on the instant savings deal, look for $1.00/2 peelies (I saw on granola bars and Life cereal).
  • NONE of the Dove was tagged. I scanned a bunch and found that the shampoo and conditioner in tubes are not $3.00, but the ones in bottles are.

I also used my Frigo rainchecks from the $2.50 mozzarella + free tomatoes deal a couple of weeks ago plus the $1.00 Frigo insert coupons that are about to expire (and some random MyMixx coupons I’d forgotten about also came off my order, oops). But all of the above came to $16.14 after instant savings + coupons — see the full Jewel matchups for this week here.

2 Speed Stick Gear deodorant, $8.00. Used BOGO from the 7/26 SS.

It’s been a while since I’ve been to CVS — OK, like a couple of weeks, but it feels like forever. 😉 I had a $10/$40 in my email last Thursday, printed it Saturday night and never went, so figured I’d use that before it expired.

Dean’s milk, $2.89. Used $1.00/1 printable (77477) and will get back $.20 on Ibotta.
Two 16 oz bags Blue Diamond almonds, $13.98. Used two $2.50/1 printables (no longer available).
2 snack size cashews, $2.00. Used $3.00/$15.00 nuts CVS coupon from the magic machine on these and the almonds above.
2 Schick Hydro 5 razors, $23.98. Used two $2.00/1 printables.

Used my $10/$40 and $19 in ECB. Paid $2.93 and got back $11.00 ECB ($10 for Schick and $1 for milk) + $.20 from Ibotta for a net cost of $10.73.

Went to Jewel, went to ALDI — Clearance at Villa Park

Was at the Villa Park ALDI today and all their corned beef had half off stickers — plus four pack of expiring knockoff Oreo and M&M yogurt parfaits were clearanced out at $.25!

aldijewel

I did buy corned beef because all the boys (including the tall one!) love it so… plus $.99/lb clearance hamburger at Jewel. At Jewel, spent $4.00 on just a couple lbs of hamburger and the $1.50 Frigo/free tomatoes deal with $1.00 MyMixx coupon (the tomatoes didn’t come off, go figure, but she took it off manually). At ALDI, I went for the $.49 avocados (8 of ’em) plus tortillas and tortilla chips, so spent $13.61 on those + the corned beef, $17.61 all together.

Chili tonight, corned beef tomorrow…

Today I ran through Pete’s Fresh Market and ALDI — and found these pretty $.10 peaches at the Oakbrook Terrace Pete’s! I didn’t buy any — you know what’s weird? The only person in our house who likes peaches is MashupDad, and he’s being all low carb and stuff. I love the smell of peaches, but won’t eat them and neither will the kids.

aldipetes

So anyway, I did spend about $29 on all this other stuff. (And will get a whopping $.25 back on limes on Checkout 51, lol.) Some great produce prices today!

  • Limes 15/$.98 at Petes. I bought six for $.33 with $.25 back for a net cost of $.08.
  • Celery $.69 at Pete’s.
  • Driscoll’s strawberries $1.98 at Petes, and used $.75 survey coupons.
  • Corn $.10 an ear at ALDI (limit 10).
  • Blueberries $.98 at Pete’s and $.99 at ALDI.
  • Yellow Campari tomatoes $.69 at Pete’s.
  • 2 lb carrots $1.19 at ALDI.
  • Chickpeas $.65 at ALDI.
  • 10 lbs Idaho potatoes $.98 at Pete’s.
  • Broccoli $.48/lb at Pete’s.
  • Cauliflower $.59/lb at Pete’s.

Frustrating Jewel shopping

So I went to Jewel this morning. It was of course a zoo with the overlapping one day and four day sales, but that’s to be expected. But things weren’t ringing up right, coupons weren’t scanning (the Yucatan one from yesterday scanned expired even though it’s good through 7/14), and I have to go back to get my buck back on popcorn now.

  • The $.98 pineapple scanned at $1.98, so that required override.
  • The Challenge butter was tagged $3.00 but rang $4.29. (I got back the difference at customer service.)
  • The O Organics popcorn rang up 2/$4.00 rather than the advertised 2/$3.00, so I’ll get back that $1.00 next time I go in.
  • None of the Perdue coupons would scan, and the Yucatan one scanned in as expired.

So that took a while… lol. Then I came home and ate some cherries, only to find a little cluster of moldy ones hiding in the middle of the bag. Grr.

What I bought today

2 Essential Everyday sugar, $1.96. Then a random $.98 MyMixx coupon came off — was there a $1.00 coupon for EE sugar on there at some point, and it just auto-adjusted down on me?
2 O Organics popcorn, $4.00. (Should have been $3.00.) Use $1.00/2 MyMixx coupon.
4 Essential Everyday cheese, $3.92. Got $.20 back on Ibotta.
Challenge Butter, $3.00. (See note above on it ringing $4.29.) Used $1.00/1 MyMixx coupon and got $.75 back on Ibotta.
6 Perdue Short Cuts, $13.47. Used six $1.25/1 printables. (Oh gosh, and $1.25 also came off on MyMixx that I didn’t realize; I didn’t do that on purpose.) Print $1.25/1 Short Cuts here (ZIP 77477).
Pineapple, $.98. (See above note, price adjusted to ad price.)
Blueberries, $1.25.
Cherries, $4.74. Got back on Ibotta.
2 Earthbound Farm organic salads, $3.00. Used $1.00/2 printable. Got $.20 back on spinach on Ibotta.
Vidalia onions, $.78. Got $.20 back on Ibotta.
Portobello mushroom caps, $2.00.
2 Yucatan guacamole, BOGO at $6.49. Used $2.50/1 printable. (Pick any recipe here and scroll down to the bottom to find a link for a $2.50/1 coupon; limit one per visit.)

Paid $30.14 with $1.55 back, and will get another $1.00 back on my next visit for the ring error on the popcorn = net $27.59.

Don’t you miss the days when they used to give you the item for free if it scanned wrong?

Perdue clearance at Ultra Foods Lombard

If you’re near Ultra Foods Lombard like… now… you might want to stop in. Tracy commented on Facebook that they had Perdue boneless skinless chicken breast on sale for $.99/lb BOGO. I happened to be right by there when I saw her message, so stopped in — this is short dated clearance (packages exp. 7/1) and mine did not ring BOGO, since they were tagged as Sanderson Farms, lol. I figured it was a good enough deal nonetheless and got six packs (about 9 lbs) for $5.99 after three of the no-longer-available $1.00/2 printables from last month. When I left about 5:35 PM they had around 20 packs left.

Went to Pete’s for the $.78 naan today

Junior High boy elbow not included… Today’s the last day to pick up Swad tandoori naan (5 pcs, frozen) for $.78 at Pete’s Fresh Market! The regular shelf price on these was $2.19, so this seems like a good deal — and these are made with: wheat flour, water, sunflower oil, milk, salt, sugar, yeast, and soy flour, so no weird ingredients. It’s also the last day to pick up cauliflower at $.48/lb and Dean’s sour cream for $1.69 (minus $.55/1 in the 5/10 SS = $1.14).

Cauliflower, $1.22.
Bunch spinach, $.50.
3 lbs of Red Delicious apples, $1.45.
Sourdough bread, $3.29.
Meat ends, $2.67.
Dean’s sour cream, $1.69. Used $.55/1 in the 5/10 SS.
3 packs Swad naan at $.78 each = $2.34.

Got $.05 off for bringing my own bag and paid $12.79.
