  • Shandelle reports: “Also I noticed this week that Jewel registers are printing out some pretty decent high value catalina coupons. I always go through self scan and yesterday and today I received: $1.50 off 1 Ultimate Hamburger Helper (Exp 5/21), $1.50 off 1 box of Chocolate Toast Crunch or Multi Grain Dark Chocolate Crunch Cheerios (Exp 5/20), $1 off 1 Campbell’s skillet or slow cooker sauce (Exp 7/15), and two $1 off 1 Philadelphia cream cheese tubs! They are all manufacturer catalinas, too, so you could take them elsewhere such as Walmart or whatever other stores will accept the ones that have Jewel’s logo on it.”

  • Something to check your Checkout51 for, from Tori: “Apparently not everyone got $1 back on any variety, any size Flipz this week, but if you did get it the 5oz bag of Flipz are on sale for $1 at Menards through Saturday (4/26). Or I saw them a few days ago at Dollar Tree (south Naperville, 111th St & Rt 59), but I’m not sure of the size. Free Flipz.”

Product reviews

  • Suzann was not a fan of Ten soda: “Reason is in my opinion, they taste awful. We decided the 7 UP10 tasted like dishwater- the taste you get when someone has not rinsed a glass well. Of all the flavors, RC10 was the best. Just our opinion.”

Reader requests

  • Shandelle is wondering: “For those who use Shopkick, I noticed one show up to receive 1000 kicks for scanning any fuel-efficient Ford vehicle. lol so what are you supposed to scan? Anyone try this? I mean, cars don’t have barcodes.. does the VIN work? The nearest Ford dealer to me in the city is like 8 miles away so I’m not sure if this will be more trouble than its worth. I googled and found all sorts of people wondering the same thing and saying the car salesmen had no clue what they were talking about. Apparently this is an offer only for the greater Chicago area.”
  • Amanda asks: “Any one know anything about Glen Ellyn Dump Day this year? Is it happening?”
  • And jane responds: “I just discovered that Staples will recycle all your old electronics, tvs, and batteries. In case that’s what you need to get rid of.”
  • Artie adds: “Here is a huge list of where to recycle Registered Residential E-Waste Collection Sites I need to get rid of one or two 25in tube TVs. Anyone know of a place that would pick them up at my home for a free or at a low cost?” I would love to know this as I have a 32″ that needs to go!


  • A warning from Amy on ordering rugs online: “Be careful, be very very careful. IF your expecting fringe on the end, there is none. The pile is very synthetic feeling. Very disappointed with the online rugs I ordered, but I have to remember I am ordering sight unseen – rug unfelt.”
  • Kari O. comments: “Another cheap option for area rugs with more variety is a local company called Carpet Concepts in Round Lake. She binds carpet remenants and sells them for $40 flat. The sizes vary from 4×7 to 9×7. In the nice weather she puts a cart out by Circuit dr which is off Rollins but you can also call her shop too and ask if she has anything you’re looking for.”


  • Shandelle says: “Target has California Pizza Kitchen pizzas on price cut for $5 each (reg $6.19). You can use the $2/2 Target printable and two $1.50 manufacturer bricks printables from the CPK site (Not sure the bricks link is still working or it may be out of prints now) to get both for $5.”


  • Tina shares: “If you are too far from Ultra for price matching, Montgomery Market also has [Hamburger Helper] for 88¢. However, the ad says ‘While supplies last’, will WalMart allow the match with that wording? Or just not show the ad? ;-)”
  • Another allergy rebate idea, From Sandy: “At Walmart } Buy 2 Benadril Allergy 24 tabs @ 4.44 = 8.88 and one Kleenex ultra soft 75 count for 1.57 = 10.45 Use $3.00/ 2 Sudafed adult PE, Sudafed children’s, Benadryl, Children’s Benadryl, Tylnol sinus, Visine or Neosporin Ecxema Essentials product (SS 04/13 ) 10.45 – 3.00 = 7.45 oop = a big fat $12.55 MM !!”
  • Tamara adds: “Shopmium also has $.50 off on Kleenex”
  • From Shandelle: “I noticed in Ibotta there is $1 back on a 5.3 oz Yoplait greek yogurt cup (any flavor but excludes Greek 100) which is a Walmart exclusive rebate. These are 10 for $10 at Jewel right now. Not sure what Walmart sells this product for, but I plan to price match Jewel if they’re higher for a free yogurt. :)”

  • Outlander says: “I found this book at my library to help with Windows 8.1. No, I’m not a senior. :)”

Bridal gowns

  • To add to yesterday’s collection, Mandi says: “For wedding dresses- try house of hope in Barrington. Some of the dresses are older, but alot of them were donated from wedding boutiques for the tax write off. I found mine there -never been worn, beautiful hand beaded detailing all over the dress. I just had to get it hemmed. All the dresses are $50. The veils range in price. Also the ladies that work there are very friendly. They also have formal dresses for bridesmaids/ mother of the bride. Check their website, they have particular hours. Hope this helps!”


Cost Plus World Market

  • From John W: “Weds. April 23 is World Market’s one day BOGO coffee sale on their house brand 12 oz. coffees, which start at $5.99 (regular and decaf, it’s a very good deal on decaf). So, get 6 coffee for $17.97, use a 10% off coupon (via email or the 4/13 World Market ad, or joining at to make it $16.17, plus members (World Market Explorer) will get double coffee credits, enough for one free bag of coffee in the future (you can get the expensive kinds for free, too). So that’s 7 bags of coffee for $2.31 each, a great deal on good coffee.”


  • Theresa posts on Facebook: “In today’s Chicago Tribune, the back cover of the wrap-around for the sales inserts has a nice Brach’s candy coupon – $1 off any one Brach’s product, 12 oz. or smaller. Expires 6/1/14. Wanted to point it out, since it is easy to miss.” Yesterday, I got this in my hand-delivered ads and Rachel got it in her mailed ads.


  • On the allergy rebate, Suzann wonders: “Do you have to buy the 48 count? If you could do the 24 count as Jenny at the Southern Savers blog points out your mm would be over $14.00.” The rebate doesn’t seem to specify a size.

Fannie May

  • Sent over by feelgood: “Easter Candy Sale – Up to 50% @ Sale items, low to high sort - items from $1.99. And, these coupons stack with sale prices: 53119  - 30% off $30 purchase 11999  – 15% off any purchase”

Food 4 Less

  • On the 4/$8.00 cereal that gets you a free gallon of milk, ellen says: “you could use the cereal coupon that came with the sunday paper.” There was a $1.00/1 and samples with some Sunday papers, but I got mine with Saturday’s Sun-Times.


  • Raegan posts in Hot Deals: “Some of the EB Farms 5oz salads have $1/2 peelies on them too.” I have seen them at Meijer recently as well.

Plastic wrap deals


Fran had emailed looking for plastic wrap deals, and it reminded me of two things, so … here goes! First, on Amazon you can really stock up on the good stuff. Pick up 1500 sq ft of Kirkland Stretch-Tite food wrap for $18.19, eligible for Prime or free shipping at $35.00. Last time I posted this (several months back), everyone raved about Stretch-Tite quality and these rolls that last forever. :)


Secondly, there is 10% off Glad cling wrap on Target Cartwheel and a $1.00/1 Glad coupon to stack here. I don’t know how much Glad runs at Target, but it might be worth a look next time you’re in.

Know of any more plastic wrap deals? Please comment here!

Internet service

  • From feelgood: “looking for cheaper internet service, you may want to look into this offer on Groupon. You can get up to 500 mb a month free, or 2 gb for $17.99. Don’t get the stick, it’s only for one device…the Photon is a hotspot and several devices can sign on at the same time. Uses 4G Sprint. Lots of mixed reviews on freedompop, though.”


  • Kari O. shares: “I found after Easter Fresh Turkey and Turkey Breasts for 99¢/lb at two different Jewel-Osco’s today. Not a bad price since there’s no minimum purchase and it’s not Thanksgiving. We got 2 for the freezer. I’m also searching for clearanced Easter hams too. Has anyone seen any markdowns on those?”

Mobile phone plans

  • April shares: “For a cell phone plan I use Family Mobile from Walmart. It’s based on Tmobile network . $45 per month includes unlimited talk and text + 5 gb Internet access. I think you can add additional lines for $10-15. The draw back that you can’t recieve any of text massages from Target with coupons”


  • A tip from Matt: “When you go to the resale shop look for ink that matches your printer. Every once in a while I find expensive ink for under $5. Sometimes the outer box is damaged and the ink is sealed inside.”

Reader requests

  • An Ultra Foods question from Jeff: “Does anyone know if the aloha Hawaaian punch is included in the sale to use the 1.00 off coupon tia”
  • From benita: “I am looking for a wedding dress for a friend. Last year house of hope in arlington heights has a may bridal sale, but they are no longer running the sale. Goodwill and the Salavation Army is a hit or miss. Does anyone know of sample sales, charity shops, etc for wedding dresses. The wedding is a year away, so if the sale is later in the year that is ok.”
  • An idea from Samantha: “I had seen this in the Sunday Trib and it looked cool”
  • Martina says: “Low in Kellogg’s Raisin Bran as well. Thank’s again :0)” There is a $3.00/3 printable here. Anyone know of a good place to use it?

  • For the Method deal, liz noticed: “theres a $1.00 off handwash method on my shopmium also!”
  • A baby food deal from andi: “check’s post (search Ella) on some of the recent baby deals. I got 4 pouches of Ella’s organic baby food for a friend for $0.40 total, or 10 cents each. TotallyTarget provides a link to a $1 printable, which works on a single item (obviously, you’ll need multiple printers as it’s 2 per [computer]). Then, Target text club for baby deals provides a $1.50/4 Target coupon. Lastly, I had 10% on Cartwheel (not sure when this expires). Had I been able to get ALL Strawberry apple, it would have been $0.06 total for all four. However, store was picked over, and I had to get other pouches with a ring price of $1.77 (the strawberry/apple was $1.39). Then used my redcard, of course.” Unfortunately, the Cartwheel expired 4/19.


  • Tamara found: “Free Glade Decor refills at Walgreens. $1 each when you buy 3. Buy 4 at $1 and use two $2/2 from rightathome.”


  • On the Hamburger Helper deal, Jane says: “I just printed up the rebate and it is limit 2 offers per address! I wonder how much ground beef is at Walmart anyway? That is $12.88 worth of free meat!” Not sure, but you could price match that as well!
