Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • Sandra warns: “I got mayo from Amazon about 2 weeks ago and it had separated probably due to freezing during shipping. Just something to keep in mind depending on where you live. I contacted Amazon and they gave me a refund (even though these items say they are not eligible for return) apology, and assurance it wouldn’t happen again when I told them what had happened. I’m thinking, though, that mayo may not be a good choice to get through the mail.”
  • Tina on Facebook suggests buying yourself a gift [Prime] membership and setting it to deliver after your current one expires, then cancel the current one before the gift one starts.
  • An option from Mari: “For those who think Prime is still expensive, you can share your membership with a friend or family member. I currently am added to my friend’s Prime account (where I guess he has me listed as his brother/sister), and as a sub-member, I am only eligible for the free 2-day shipping/$3.99 1-day (no minimum). This means no free streaming video, but as I have other ways to watch television and movies, I can live without it. We split the cost of Prime down the middle, and it’s a great arrangement as I get much use out of it. Even at full price, it’s totally worth it, IMO.”

Coupons

Butera

  • Outlander comments: “Also use those BOGO Qs for Nutella. They expire 3/15.”

Ebay

  • A warning from Sandi: “Be careful with these shoes! They are made for speciality runners and only should be worn a short periods at a time until you become used to them. Read the reviews…also there use to be a warning when you placed them in your cart stating this.”

Freebies

Groupon

Hy-Vee

  • An idea from Shirley: “You can also buy 4 Totinos Pizza Rolls for $10. Use $2 in ad coupon and 4 x $1.25 off IP (NLA) to get it for $0.75 each.”

J.C. Penney

  • Allison comments: “JcPennny in Stratford Square mall is closing. Everything is 30% off.”

Jewel

  • From letsshop on the tiny Tides: “No problems in Countryside or Willow-brook still has display”

Meijer

Piggly Wiggly

  • Outlander says: “Piggly-Wiggly in Carol Stream opened yesterday 3/11.”

Reader requests

  • From Katharine in Hot Deals: “Has anyone seen a coupon from Office Depot for free printing? They usually have coupon for free printing around tax time. Thanks!”
  • Outlander is wondering: “Is that CB meat any good? What does it compare to? Thanks.”
  • And Maribel asks: “Anyone knows if the Jewel in Elk Grove has any [tiny] tide?”
  • From Nancy: “I would love a few ‘sisters’ to join my family as my [Prime] membership with my other family is not being renewed.  I think the limit is 5 so I am looking for 4 ‘family’ members!”

Surveys

  • From mary: “I have been a member of [Global Test Market] for a long time, and they do send out a lot of surveys, and you won’t qualify for all, but I have qualified for a ton of them, as well as many at home trials of products. The points you accumulate you can redeem for cash as well.”

Target

  • Kelly on Facebook reports: “”I finally broke down and bought the Belvita Soft Baked breakfast biscuits today at Target because it kept showing up on my Checkout 51 week after week. As someone posted yesterday, it is also on Shopmium and Ibotta. So I bought 1 box for $2.99 (not a sale price) and got back 50 cents from Checkout 51 (mine was good for 1 box, not 2), 75 cents from Ibotta, $1 from Shopmium, and 15 cents for using my Target Redcard (5% off) for a grand total of 59 cents plus tax. It would have been even cheaper if I had remembered to use my Cartwheel! Tried one as soon as I got home–it tastes just like a Fig Newton! Now we’re eating cookies for breakfast!”

Ultra Foods

  • Something susie remembered: “Last week someone on here posted about a catalina that if you buy 10 items we get a $5 OYNO, and I think the fruit snacks were included. If so that could make for some cheap fruit snacks.”
  • And susie confirms: “The Kellogg’s Catalina is printing at Ultra, I tried it today when I bought for boxes of cereal and i earned a $3 OYNO”

Walgreens

  • Kitty emails: “did anyone notice that the $2 colgate rr is rolling?? and  it comes out as soon as the toothpaste is rung up. I have been getting the optic white but should be the same for all.”

Coupons

  • Information on the Tribune’s inserts, from coupon cutie: “they will no longer be in plastic bag, cost cutting measure. Should be interesting to say the least!”

CVS

Food 4 Less

  • Ashley says: “Our Ragu coupon is $0.75/2 making them $0.66 each Heinz Gravy is also part of the instant. It is $0.79 Many have $1/3 peelies on the inside of the label. Pay just $0.46 each and get back: $1 catalina when you buy one $1.50 catalina when you buy three for a small mm”

Freebies

Home Depot

  • A tip from Steve F.: “Our Home Depot accepts Harbor Freight Q’s on tools….after I informed them that they take competitor coupons! ;)”

Jewel

  • Maureen shares: “Post Great Grains Cereal on sale this week, too, I love it, but so expensive. Felt good to use my 2 buy two Post get free milk Qs and get Oberweis half gallons for free.”
  • Ashley found: “Jewel has these new tiny tide bottles for $1.49 so free with $3/2 coupon, they don’t say trial or travel and are stocked in regular aisle.”

Mariano’s

  • Something to look for from aimee: “i rec’d a coupon in the mail for a $25 gift card with a new or transferred rx, expiring 1/31.  i think there was a sign in the store about it too, so an actual coupon might not be necessary.”

Meijer

  • From Kristina: “Meijer on Rt 59 in Aurora has their 1.75 (?) qt Purple Cow ice cream – limited edition pumpkin pie flavor marked down to just 99 cents. They had more than a dozen left. I only bought one which is good because it’s surprisingly delicious.”

Menards

  • Don posts on Facebook: “Sooooooo with the double dip at Menards tomorrow – 14% instant and 11% M I R , who is buying what? I need some fresh ideas…..”
  • Debbie comments: “I also learned the hard way with the 11% running for 3 weeks straight at the beginning of the month each week had a different rebate number and a different postmark deadline to mail them in. This next week’s 11% will definitely have a different number and postmark deadline also.”

Sears

  • Monika shares: “Yes, Chicago is the only store. Rent was too high.”

Target

  • Julie reports: “I did this [DiGiorno deal] tonight and the b2g1 coupon scanned in for 6.01!!!  Even better of a deal!”
  • From liz: “if you are holding onto the $1.00 bic coupons like I have since I cant find any bic for a buck..in tomorrows paper there is a one page flyer from target that has a target $1 coupon for bic which hopefully will make for free bic”

Ultra Foods

  • A heads up from Mary Ann: “The Nature Valley cat deal is not rolling in Prospect Hts. I’ve done 6 transactions so far and needed CS intervention every time.”

Vonage

  • Francesca says: “I have to say I tried Vonage a few years ago and it was a huge mistake. Dropped calls constantly. And when I called to cancel they told me I had to pay for the caller id receiver and it wasn’t rented equipment so they billed me for that. It was not worth the $ saved.”
  • But Outlander had a better experience: “I love Vonage and have had it for years now. I used to pay more than $200 a month for my phone bill because of the international calls, but with Vonage it’s $25 + taxes/ month! Yes, there are occasionally not the best quality calls, but altogether it’s great. And every time I called about anything, they have the best customer service. Those guys helped me when I had trouble with other devices too, like the router or int. modem (where the other guys wanted money).”

Walgreens

  • A deal from Emily for anyone still going out tonight: “There is a 1.00 off 2 Dial Soap in tomorrows paper and at Walgreens the hand soap and bar soap are b1g1 free (today’s the last day). They price is around 1.89-2.29 for 2 minus the 1.00 coupon”

Whole Foods

  • A deal from Valentina S.: “Organic Valley sour cream 16 oz is on sale for $2.69 at Whole Foods through 1/28/14. I used 2 $1/1 store and 2 $0.75/1 MQ (came in e-mail a week after signing up on OV web site). Got 10 cents back for bringing own bag. Total OOP $1.87 with tax for 2 16 oz containers. Great price for organic sour cream!”

  • Sue likes them too: “Love JoAnn Fluke’s books!!”

Dollar Tree

  • Jane says: “The Old El Paso 8 oz. cooking sauces are only 33 cents each at Dollar Tree right now. So using the .60/3 they are 13 cents! I bought 2 kinds; roasted tomato and chipotle but be warned they have short exp. dates on them. If you plan on using them soon, you cannot beat the price. Or if you don’t want to buy 8 items or deal w/ a Catalina. They are $2 before Cat at Ultra this week.”

Hurry, get there before people snatch it all up!”

Michaels

  • A find from cindy: “My Michaels (Valparaiso) had grab boxes and bags for $2. I got 11 and I’m guessing there’s over $700 worth of stuff in them. There was plenty left this morning.”
  • Kari O. is wondering: “What kind of things were in them? I keep seeing on Instagram the penny items they’re clearancing out like Christmas baskets, hello kitty items and art sets in briefcases. Are any of those items in the grab boxes?”

Ultra Foods

  • From Jane: “Did you get the 50 cents/1 Wild Garden coupon in 1-19 SS? I already used mine on a clearance hummus at Jewel, but I’m thinking it would work on the hummus singles at Ultra on sale. That would make them only 48 cents each, if that is the correct coupon?” We did get it, and it says “any” so it should work.
  • Cari comments on the GM Catalina issues: “Thinking the trouble makers might be pizza rolls and some frostings?”

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! How do you share your own deal?

Big favor: If you mention other sites, online coupons, etc, please include the link. Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

7-Eleven

  • From Shandelle: “Had a couple new freebies in the 7-Eleven iPhone app yesterday. Any 20 oz bottle of TEN soda (7-Up, Dr Pepper, A&W, Sunkist) OR regular! A warning, the ecoupon would not scan for any of these products (TEN or regular) last night at 7-Eleven in the city. The clerk was nice and just gave it to me, and I’ve already submitted a ticket to 7-Eleven to fix it. The other freebie is for Pillsbury Cookies, which neither of the 2 stores by me carried. It’s a new product so it may not even be in the Chicago area yet. It’s hit or miss whether or not Chicagoland 7-Elevens carry the freebies in the app!”

Coupons

  • Ashley found: There’s $1/1 peelies at Meijer for those [Tyson Grilled & Ready] strips.”

CVS

  • Julie suggests: “Check you MCM coupons and CVS mailed coupons for a possible great deal on Flintstones Vitamins or other vitamins from Bayer. I received a $5/$30 vitamin purchase coupon in the mail (2 actually, 1 good now until Feb 15, the second good after Feb 15th). I also got a $4/$20 vitamin purchase from the MCM. Flintstones are on sale BOGO 50% and the 60 count gummies and chewables are $8.49 reg price. (second one rings up at $4.24) Buy 6 @ $38.19, Use 3 $5/2 Bayer products (includes Flintstones) from the 1-5 SS (the one with the general mills coupons), $5/$30 CVS mailed coupon and $4/$20 MCM coupon and you are down to $14.19 with $6 ECB back for a net of $8.19 for 6 pack of 60 count kids vitamins, or in our house about a month and a half’s worth.” And: “Also hubby wanted to add that he is a bit ticked off at Bayer on the vitamins. We got 1 pack of chewables for our 3 year old and he discovered that his childhood favorite of the Flintstone’s car was replaced by the Great Gazoo.” LOL!

Daily deals

  • Charlotte posted on Facebook: “I found a new flash deal site, linked to Newegg. They have a good deal on a refurbished Roku 2 XS today.”

Dollar Tree

  • April says: “If someone interested, you can print Kraft recipe makers coupon on coupons.com and use them at Dollar Tree. I found different varieties in Villa park store.”

Jewel

  • Kari O.’s Rachael Ray experience: “The Fox Lake store had a shipment today (bowls, dinner plates, mugs and red/green small plates). I was able to redeem 8 pieces total but not the blue color I wanted. So I called Antioch and they’re expecting a shipment tomorrow. No guarantees on items but they are willing to let me exchange the items.”
  • She also found: “Jewel in Fox Lake has 8 ct Starbucks Via on clearance for $2.78. Use the $1/1 and pay $1.78. They also had French’s Marinade Injectors for $0.25 use the $1/1 and it’s a $.75 MM. They’re Shopper’s Value Capri Suns were $1 for a 10 ct box as well.”
  • Nikki found: “My Jewel stores still have the marinade injectors at $1.78. They’ve been that price for a while!”
  • A find from savinlikeu: “Found Anna’s cookies on back clearance for .68 with .50 off peelies….good price for yummy cookies!”

Schnucks

  • From tplz5: “I was at Schnucks tonight and got a catalina message “Buy any 4 participating General Mills Items Between 1/8/14 and 1/14/14 and SAVE $3.00 on produce on a future order.” Choose from Betty Crocker, Progresso Soup, Green Giant canned vegetables. Now green giant canned veggies on sale for 1.00 ea. On the picture it show Gushers, progresso soup can, green giant veg and a betty crocker boxed brownie mix.”

Target

  • Marjie shares: “I just got back from Target in Bradley. All Christmas decor was 90% off and candy was 70% off. There was still a decent amount of stuff left. I bought some new ornaments to go with the tree I got for 75% off at Walmart and some of those candy in the book things. I will take the candy out of the books and use them in Easter baskets. They also had plastic candy canes with red jelly beans in them. I picked those up for .30 and will give them to my kids on Valentine’s Day.”

Taxes

  • From Rose W. on the Turbo Tax deal: “Please note that the price does not include State. Right now Costco has a sale $39.99 with State or $29.99 without State.”

Ultra Foods

  • Nikki comments: “Funny-went to Lombard last night & my cashier didn’t question the pizza rolls coupons at all, but questioned whether or not she could take my expired free coupon LOL If you are heading there to buy pizza rolls, be sure to check the dates on them-many of 2 flavors (I think pepperoni & combination) have dates that end in a few days.”

Stopped by Ultra today, and managed to leave my Earthbound Farm coupon on my printer. Oops! Just picked up a few things; thinking pork roast and red potatoes for dinner tonight maybe…

5 lb red potatoes, $1.98.
4 Quaker Medley oatmeal, $3.52 after instant savings. Used two exp. $1.00/2 in the 10/27 RP.

Then I popped down the road to Jewel, picked up 10 Tyson grilled & ready strips for $20.00, and used 10 $.55/1 coupons from the 1/5 SS1. AtkinsDad likes to bring these for lunch, so $1.45 each seemed decent.

I’ll do a Pete’s/ALDI trip later for produce — maybe today if Mr. 6 is in a good mood when he gets off the school bus, lol. Yeah, that’s a lot of stores, but they’re all close together and I’m DARN STIR CRAZY. (Thanks, Polar Vortex!)

Activities

  • A tip from LauraL: “For the reader who wanted a waterpark, try WBIG1280.com. They usually have some cheap hotels with a pool. I think the only full waterparks are in Indiana/WI. (look under Wis Dells and hotels). Sign up for the emails because sometimes they discount their price by 70% and you can get super cheap rooms. Right now they have a 49 stay at a hotel waterpark in Wisconsin Dells.” For the person looking for cheap organic merchandise, check out Meijer. They have a nice selection and usually the cheapest prices.

Caputo’s

  • Mandy says: “if you want a good price on Organic apples, the Caputo’s in Blgdle had 3# bags of Braeburns yesterday for $2.69.”

Jewel

  • Kari O. says, on Rachael Ray dishes: “I found out that if you’re short stamps Jewel will give you 50% off a piece for 10 stamps. Kinda stupid to of spent $100 on groceries and still have to pay $2.99 for a plate, but it is what it is. Could be helpful for some.”
  • Aimee shares: “Just got back from Jewel, and there are some good clearance toys there. I bought my daughter a basket full of play food for $3.24. There were also cheap action figures and Bubble Guppies toys.”

Menards

  • Outlander’s deal: “I just went and got $10 GC, and then bought 10 papers. So I get $1.10 back on each receipt.”

Organic options

  • LauraL comments: “For the person looking for cheap organic merchandise, check out Meijer. They have a nice selection and usually the cheapest prices.”
  • And Kathy says: “For Kathy, I shop mostly at while foods now also too due to eating better. I found that Costco has many organic and all natural foods for cheap compared to whole foods. If you try Costco and then fill in the rest w whole foods or jewel and your coupons you should drop your bill.”

Reader requests

  • A tax question from jane, prompted by the H&R Block sale: “Does anyone know which product is best? Sometimes we itemize, but not always, if standard deduction is enough. And we would also need State. Are they all a download to your computer?”
  • A request from Judy Si.: “Still can’t see the bananas. If anyone has a link to the bananas, please post.”
  • Outlander suggests: “Check your emails. I had an email from them with direct link to bananas.” That made it work for me. She adds: “This is the third time I’m trying to post this. I don’t know what’s going on.” Here is her direct link.
  • Maggie asks: “My Walgreens Pharmacy told me that all the Winter Diabetic books will be taken out of the stores, because “of some coupon”. Hmmm, I wonder which coupon she meant… :) But seriously, our Walgreens never even got the booklet and apparently never will. Have you heard anything about this??”

Target
