Coupons

  • Annette says: “I was at Ultra Food today and found tear coupon pads for $1.50 off ONE Kraft cheese or dairy product. I post a pix , but don’t know how. It works at the Jewel cheese sale.”
  • Diane asks: “Which Ultra? Thanks!”

Donations

  • Katie emails: “In honor of Domestic Violence Awareness Month, I wanted to send out a request to our local couponers. On October 18th, Mutual Ground domestic violence shelter in Aurora will be holding it’s annual Walk For Hope. The center is always in need of monetary donations of course, but they are currently in need of items most of us have tons of laying around the house or have the ability to get for almost free. Shampoo, conditioner, mouthwash, cleaning supplies, diapers,baby wipes, etc. are items that they are currently very short on. The center donation information is below. I am looking for anyone in the area willing to come out on the 18th to donate items directly to the shelter and if they feel moved to so, come out and walk with us.”

Mariano’s

  • SoapboxTray shares: “I saw this fantastic coupon book at Mariano’s in Vernon Hills. Store coupons able to combine with Man Q’s. If anyone has seen these before let me know I am curious if they will continue and have a new one tomorrow. This one ends 10/1.
    marianos book
    I utilized the Barilla Pasta 88¢ with store coupon, and I had a $1. off 3 boxes IP which doubled to make it 64¢ for all 3 or 21¢ a box. Flav-R-Pac Classics were 75¢ and used the 35¢ IP doubled to make them 5¢ a bag. Brownberry Store Coupon $1.98 each. 9/7 SS $1. off 2 doubled makes it $1.96 for 2 or 98¢ each wyb2. The Kalona milk is still $4. if you still have the coupon, $2. after coupon.” It may be a bit late for this book, but definitely worth being on the lookout for the next one!

Meijer

  • A find from liz: “at the Niles Meijer, back in the clearance shelf 36ct green mountain keurig coffee 50% off doesn’t expire till nov 20. Just 8.49 for 36 ct!!”
  • Charlotte posts on Facebook: “Meijer in Bolingbrook on Boughton (off the expressway) had a lot of Soda Stream machines for 50% off at $50 each. I get the refills at Bed bath and Beyond with a $5 off $15 coupon. :) I know some people have jerryrigged their soda streams with CO2 canisters from diving equipment…”

Reader requests

  • Don posts in Hot Deals: “Hoping to find a nice deal on a dehumidifier as a seasonal buy – ty”

Target

  • From VB: “hello kitty costumes are 50% off with cartwheel coupon and then you can combine that with the mobile coupon for a better deal.” Text SPOOKY4 to 827438 for $5/$25 Halloween costumes or accessories.

Walgreens

  • On the flaxseed, letsshop asks: “Went to 2 Walgreen stores ,couldn’t find !is it the large book or small ?”
  • And Outlander shares: “My store has it tagged $6.99- $5 Q in a book. But after I paid I also got 50 cent reward, so it’s $1.49 AFTER Q and rewards. I only found one.”

$.79 flaxseed at Walgreens — or $1.49

walgreens

Update — At some stores in Chicagoland, this is $6.49, not $5.79, so will cost you $1.49 after coupon. Price may vary by store.

—————————————-

Through 11/1, Purelife Naturals organic ground flaxseed is priced $5.79 at Walgreens. In the October coupon booklet, you will find a $5.00/1 coupon for Purelife Naturals. Score your flaxseed for just $.79! Note — you’ll find this generally by the vitamins & supplements, not by baking.

Aldi

  • Something to look for from Caroline in Hot Deals: “Keep a look out at Aldi I found [Ghirardelli brownie mix] for .99 a box recently.”

Amazon

  • Found by grandma g, the Starbucks Refreshers deal has returned: “$14.11 ($0.10 / Fluid Ounce) after 20% discount But then there was a coupon, I think 25% off, to bring it down to only $9.70 for 12. I like these for a nice little treat, at .83 each seems like a good deal.”

Coupons

  • On the Curad PDF, Jane wonders: “Do you have to print the whole page of coupons?”
  • Kari O. replies: “Yes, you probably should. At least on my computer if you tried to take a screenshot of the PDF there are little black lines that show up on the image that don’t print out on the paper. So, it becomes very apparent to the manufacturer than you copied the image and didn’t just print the whole page.”

Food 4 Less

  • Shandelle shares: “Just got an email from Saving Star stating that Food 4 Less will be a supported store as of October 1st. I can’t remember if I saw a post about it or not, but they announced a week or so ago that Kroger and all their affiliate stores won’t do store cards for credit anymore and we will have to start scanning the receipts manually into the app like with all the other non loyalty card stores.”

Staples

  • On the Maxwell House coffee, Laura on Facebook says: “You can place more than one order, its limited to two per order!”

Restaurants

  • Brandy shares: “Also, bought McDonald’s Halloween $1 booklets with 3x of each: apple slices, small juice or milk, gogurt, hamburger (total 12 coupons). Only one per person, under 12yo. Burger King did not have Halloween booklets but BK Scholars booklets which are also $1 and 3x value fries or onion rings & 3x ice cream cone (total 6 coupons). One per person per visit BUT no age limit because not for kids..everyone! Looks like I will be hitting up McD for the burger and going across the street for the fries via drive thru. Hah!”

Target

  • Brandy reports: “Saw backpacks on 70% off clearance at Diehl Target in Warrenville yesterday. Tons. “

Walgreens

  • A Colgate report from LovinSavin: “[The $3 RR wyb one] just worked for me at 12:44 pm on Max Fresh Intense with Whitening.”

Whole Foods

  • A question from peaches: “Does anybody know if the Imagine soup is still on sale at Whole Foods because I did not see any of it marked at 2/$5. BTW when I was at the Whole Foods in downtown Evanston today, there was actually an employee at the front entrance to the store handing out Whole Deal coupon books. Of course probably 90% of the customers turned her down..”

 

Money making Colgate at Walgreens DEAD DEAL

walgreens

As of today, certain varieties of Colgate at Walgreens are ringing up $2.59 (when you buy one — 2/$5.00 wyb two) — and producing a $3.00 RR when you buy one instead of the advertised two. This is unadvertised and could end at any time. $2.59 varieties triggering the RR are: 4.3 oz Total Whitening, 4 oz Deep Clean Total Advanced, 6 oz MaxFresh Cool Scrub, and 6 oz MaxFresh cool strips with whitening. So:

  • Buy one for $2.59.
  • Use the $1.00/1 coupon in the 9/28 SS.
  • Pay $1.59 + tax and get back a $3.00 RR!

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

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.

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

Amazon

  • On the Charmin, Kari O. says: “The app keeps telling me there is a $3 Instant Savings but doesn’t calculate it. So, we either just missed it OR it’s still upcoming.”
  • For Finish tabs, Liz posts on Facebook: “These are usually pretty easy to get cheap with coupons. I’ve gotten them at Jewel and Target”
  • And on the Gold Box cookware, Charlotte warns: “Be aware that even though the box and website and stuff might say they can be put in the dishwasher, there is a booklet with it that says you can not. I had the same issue with my Rachel Ray cookware. I tried one pan in the top rack of the dishwasher, and it’s totally toast. The lids might work fine though. My RR lids go in the dishwasher, no problem. Disappointing, because I have a 8 year old HA pan from Aldi (Crofton brand) and I LOVE it. It goes in the dishwasher. no problem. I can use metal in it (though I generally don’t), and no issues.”

Household tips

  • From anne: “Another storage technique I recently started using and LOVE is for scarves — I bought a super cheap over-the-door shoe storage ‘thing’…it’s one that has clear plastic pockets. I use it to store all my scarves, belts, and other miscellaneous things like winter hats. The little pockets hold the scarves perfectly, I can see everything at a quick glance, and it looks really cool.” See, I wanted to do something like that, but I have accordion doors on the closet and the door to the actual room is configured in such a way that nothing other than the tiniest hook can be on the back. Grr, I am jealous of the extra storage!

Loyalty programs

  • SoapboxTray shares: “this weekend we stopped at Thorntons and they have a new rewards card, and for the first month you get 10¢ off per gallon. ThorntonsInc dot com and check out the Refreshing Rewards.” Thanks so much! I got it today. It was super easy and I got $.10/gallon right away after registering on the kiosk in the store.
  • Kari O. adds: “Keep in mind you can use the discount for 20 times at the pump. If you don’t get gas 20 times in 30 days… Have your spouse/child use the same rewards card. After 30 have THEM get the card… It’s kinda awesome. Plus you earn free drinks and candy bars.”

Organic milk

  • Pam says: “I used to buy Horizon as well till I read more about it on this website  Out of a possible 5 “cows” (which rates organic practices, transparency, etc), Cornucopia institute gives Horizon ZERO. So, I buy Sassy Cow (5 cows) when I make it out to Caputo’s in Naperville, or Organic Valley (4 cows) elsewhere.”
  • And on the Sassy Cow milk, she adds: “Actually, I just realized it has been a while since I’ve been to Caputo’s to get it, but they would have it on sale sometimes for $4.99 a gallon. Let me know if you find it there and what the price is running.”
  • And peaches adds: “Dean’s owns Horizon now, and I have heard that the farmer’s don’t like doing business with Horizon anymore. I do love their low fat eggnog though, and that is the only thing that they make that I buy. I personally don’t like the taste of Organic Valley. I love oberweis milk, and yes I know it is not organic, but it is close, and no Jim Oberweis is not involved with the company anymore. If I could afford it, I would drink nothing but oberweis. I have not tried it, but I have heard that Kalona milk is supposed to be good too, and is organic too. They carry it at Whole Foods, but it is $5.19 a half gallon..”

Mariano’s

  • After Don shared that he got a substitution for the Kalona organic milk, Pam said: “Don–thanks for the update! Wish they would have given me the option to get another organic milk, but didn’t think to ask, ended up paying full price for the Organic Valley.”
  • And peaches was wondering: “Hi- They let you use the $2 off coupon too? Somebody on LTH just posted yesterday that they went to the Mariano’s in Northfield for the first time on Saturday, and she loved the store, but she said that the CS was inferior. When she asked anybody any questions, they were unable to give her an answer, and she said that while she was waiting in the checkout lane, the person in front of her was buying a yellow pepper which was missing the sticker, and so the cashier made him go back and get another one that had a sticker on it. Peg will not be going back there very soon.”
  • Finally she asks: “Are any of the Mariano’s stores carrying this Kalona milk?”
  • SoapboxTray responds: “I saw it last week at the Vernon Hills store for $4.”

News

  • From peaches: “I just saw this on Eater.com, where I was reading the review of the Food Network’s all day program that took place at Ravinia this last Saturday, and drew 10,000 people at $99+ a pop. Whole Foods is going to trial a rewards program at their Princeton, New Jersey store in the next few weeks, and if it is successful, they are going to expand it to the Philadelphia area by the end of the year, and if it is well received, they are going to go national with the program by the end of 2015. Apparently their stock has decreased in value recently by 25%, partly due to the fact that places like Walmart have started carrying more organic produce, and for less money than what Whole Foods is charging. I was in the new Walmart on Touhy in Skokie for a few minutes to look at microwaves, and I took a look at their grocery section, and their produce looked tired. Apparently they are trying to get people inside the door of Whole Foods that have never been there before. I am afraid that they are going to turn away some of the long standing Whole Foods customers, many of whom hate rewards programs, and some of them would start shopping at Jewel where they don’t have to deal with it. They say that this is going to be the first time they are going to have a rewards program, but I remember maybe ten years they had one, and they had to abandon it because a lot of customers hated it, and said that the reason they shopped at Whole Foods was because they did not have a rewards program like Dominick’s and Jewel did. I know that Whole Food’s business went down when the economy tanked maybe three or four years ago, but I thought it had picked up since then, and when I go in Whole Foods, I always see lots of shoppers. there, but Evanston does not have a Walmart, and because of Northwestern people there are more into organic food, and the downtown Evanston farmer’s market on Saturday morning is packed.”

Reader requests

  • Don posts on Facebook: “I have been looking for a deal on a counter microwave – something small to mid size and nothing fancy – tyia”

Walgreens

  • A tip from Caroline on Facebook: “”I buy the bags of [cashew] pieces at Wags for $1.99 when on sale and fill up the Planters container with 3 bags and it comes out to the same price. About two weeks ago I got points so it made it an even better deal at Wags.”

Carson’s

  • A reminder from ellen: “dont forget Carsons has the Goodwill sale going. Accepting donations till the 23rd and you can use the coupons until October 4th. you can use the coupons on make up and other things that dont usually go on sale.”

Coupons

  • Jill shares a tip for Spirit Halloween: “The ‘Coupon Sherpa’ app also has it and you can use it an unlimited number of times, I think.  There are also MANY other store coupons in the app.”

CVS

  • A report from kelly: “I did the L’Oreal Scrubbers deal today.  To make the deal even sweeter, I had a magic machine coupon from a week or two ago that expires on 9/24 for 25% off any facial cleanser/moisturizer.  So that took another $2.50 off the deal!  Also, not sure if this was already mentioned, CVS has the Wet n Wild nail polish at Buy 2, get 3rd free.  So I got 3, used 2 $1 off coupons and got 3 polishes for free.”

Freebies

  • On the Redbox rental today only, Swimpg says: “Good for free DVD rental or $1.20 off BluRay which comes to $.30+tax”

Mariano’s

  • An idea from SoapboxTray: “These [Flav-R-Pac veggies] are usually around 99¢ regular price at Mariano’s and good one to keep on hand for Double Daze Wednesday.”
  • DON reports: “I was at the Shorewood location today and one of the managers there were super terrific , she asked the store district about this [Kalona milk] and was told they have no plans to carry this product, however, they would be willing and able to special order this and be sure they accepted the coupon when it came in…,. I asked if she might be willing to offer an organic for the equivalent price of $2 per 64 oz after coupon, she walked with me to the dairy case, across the entire store, and allowed me to pick any organic 64 oz that I wanted at the same price. I spotted a couple Horizon cartons and they accepted the deal…. I am super impressed with the c/s they gave me without batting an eye about it.”

Target

  • Shandelle says: “There’s also $.25 back on eggs good at Target for the above deal (also works at WM & other stores) in the JINGIT iphone app. Jingit has changed the way they do things so it’s MUCH easier to cash out now. The minimum seems to be $5 and you can cash out for various gift cards. The app has all sorts of barcode scanning things very similar to Shopkick and also earnings for watching short videos, similar to Ibotta. I just cashed out today for a $5 Walmart eGift card while I was in the store. It’s definitely an app I’ll be keeping a closer eye on from now on, since they do quite a few offers good on any brand eggs, milk, bread, etc.”
  • Sarah shares: “Here’s what I did for the Target beauty deal since I really needed my Olay moisturizer. It is B1G40% off for moisturizers, cleansers, and wipes. So there are definitely lower priced items, which would make for an even better deal. Purchased 2 Regenerist moisturizers that were $23.99 each full price. After the B1G40% sale, $10/$35 beauty purchase, 2 $4/1 coupon (was from a separate sheet either last week or the week before), and 5% Olay cartwheel, I was at $20.84 ($10.42 each) including tax. Not bad for something that would have cost almost $50 with tax included at full price :-)”
  • From veronica: “I just did this deal
    • 4 Olay regenerist cleanser $5.99.  $23.96 . Used four $4/1  9-14 PG flyer
    • 4 Garnier shampoo & conditioner $2.99.  $11.96 . Used four $2/1
    • Total was $35.92 . Used $10/$35 in ad, plus above Q’s
    • Paid $1.92 for 8 items or .24 each!!!”

Walgreens

  • A $4.00/2 Pantene idea from VB: “Saving them for the Walgreens deal next week for $.50 shampoo and conditioners. They have a spend $20 select p&g get 5000 points. Pantene will be on sale 3/$10. Get 6 bottles for $20 use 3 of these coupons come to $8. Get back 5000 points!”

  • *** Disclaimer: All of the deals below come straight from readers.

CVS

  • VB reports: “I got the scrubbers and my reciept says I need 2 to earn my next $10 ecb so for now the limit is not 1 like it says in the ad. Also I scored 6 bottles of the L’Oréal shampoos and conditioners. Free shampoo and that too told me I could still get another 2 for my next $5 ecb so the limit is more than 3 for now as well!”
  • Carolanne comments: “L’Oréal Paris Go 360 Clean Deep Exfoliating Scrubs sell for $5.49, I grabbed two for $10.98 and got 10 ECBs. And even though they advertised limit is one it’s not showing limit reached on the receipt. The same goes for the L’Oreal deal buy two get 5 ECBs. Has anyone successfully completed more than one of these deals?”
  • VB adds: “I tried the scrubbers deal once since after that there was only one bottle left of the scrubber and i am thinking this will be rare to find in the stores the rest of this week. I did the shampoo deal 3 times and my reciept still says I need 2 more for my nest ecb! Free shampoo! (Well besides the tax).”

Groupon

  • From letsshop: “Went to Prime N Tender got 10 #ground sirloin ,made a burger as soon as I got home delish ! expensive gourmet meat market ,so glad I bought a Groupon [$30 for $50] from Rachel’s post couple weeks ago . Going to vacuum seal later in small packages .”

Household tips

  • Outlander shares: “I keep these [bacon bits] in the freezer. So easy to just sprinkle some on food for great bacon taste.”
  • From VB: “Thanks! I use the scrubbing bubbles with bleach bathroom cleaner to use as a pre treater on my son’s white shirts. It is the only thing that I found that will work! (I was in a pinch when I took out his shirts out of the washer and it was still stained I saw that my cleaner had bleach and gave it a try). Unfortunately they don’t carry that kind at CVS so hopefully a Target deal pops up!”

Jewel

  • Kitty emails: “The 10 percent off coupon you get when you get your flu shot at Jewel/Osco has an expiration date of 11-22-14, so good for your Thanksgiving turkey, etc.  (up to a $100 purchase.)”

Loyalty programs

  • Jane says: “There is a new free offer from Eight O’clock coffee for a “Friends” coffee mug when you buy 3- 11 oz. + coffee bags between 9-21 and 12-21. I just checked the details online and it looks like it is FREE shipping for it! You can send a picture of your receipt or send in the US Mail. It says 2 offers per household and allow 12-16 weeks for your mug to arrive. (geez, I hope it gets here before then!) You have to purchase all 3 coffee bags in 1 transaction. I saw this in the coupon inserts from today with the new $2/2 coupon. Go to: www.eightoclock.com/friends to see all the information and other offers about the Friends coffee shop. I would like to have 2 of these mugs, I think they look neat and BIG. We will see?”
  • She adds: “*also, there is $1/1 printable coupon on the Eight O’clock website to use if you’d just like to get 3 bags for the FREE coffee cup promo instead of 4 bags using 2- $2/2 coupons from todays inserts. Here is the link for the $1 coupon to print. (I had already signed up and got mine in an email they sent!) You have to sign up for their website/emails to get it.”

McDonalds

  • Maureen reports: “McD on 75th Street and Naper-Plainfield Rd in Naperville has the Halloween coupons. Bought a few a couple of weeks ago.”
  • From Jean: “McDonald’s at Half-Day Road and Milwaukee (Lincolnshire) sells the coupons.”
  • And Allison says: “The McDonalds on Lake street in Bloomingdale has Halloween books.”
  • Another sighting, from Miriam: “Mc on Butterfield Rd Aurora il has some Halloween books”
  • Sent over by sonia: “For the person looking for the mcdonalds Halloween booklets they have them at the bridgeview one at 87th and Harlem.”
  • Peanutzmom adds: “McDonalds on Summit in Oakbrook Terrace has the coupon books”

Reader requests

  • From shirley: “What is the tipping etiquette for people who deliver furniture/mattresses/appliances? I pay $99 to have the mattress delivered and set up.”
  • VB responds: “It may depend on the company. It was a year ago but If I recall correctly we were told by the rep at Ashley’s to not pay them a tip. She said that they pay them well enough so that they would not ask for tips and according to their policy were not allowed to accept them. At least that is what we were told.”
  • Samantha asks: “So, I’ve got 2 boys. I’m wondering if anyone has had success buying multiples of this [Living Social] deal, and using it all in one day? For example, Mr. 4 gets his own shoot, Mr.2 gets his, then pictures together? Thanks!”
  • From letsshop: “Any ideas I turned in about 18 old ink to [Office] max ,thinking I could get anything free like a rebate !!! Rules have changed big time since I have done this last ,its a 50/50 deal now ): any ideas on how to get the best deal ?”
  • She also wonders: “Anyone find one [replacement printer ink] that Epson printer excepts ? my NX400 knows the minute I put a imitation in ):”

Target

  • Anne reports: “Joliet Target today had lots of backpacks, lunchboxes, and water bottles at 75% off. If someone doesn’t want to order online…”

Walgreens

  • From letsshop: “You probably know this ,but 3 hydrogen peroxide for $1 at Wagreens ‘s today  got me a free  first aid bag *:D big grin
