Costco

elsadress

  • From Martha on Facebook: “Found at Bolingbrook Costco in case anyone still is looking for an Elsa dress. $4.97, and the have a BUNCH, but it looked like all were size 4-6x. There were 2 Anna dresses, but I bought one, so there was one left. Not sure if other Costcos had such a surplus of them though. (I am half tempted to go get a second Elsa dress at that price for when the one we have inevitably falls apart.)

Coupons

  • Kitty emails: “In Friday’s paper, don’t know if it was Trib or Times, there was an advertising supplement magazine called Heart Health Matters.  Inside, there is a 55c coupon for any I Can’t Believe It’s Not Butter product.”
  • Laura found $1 off Pepperidge Farm Swirl Bread.

Jewel

  • Liz comments on the Scarletts deal that: “Yes I went back to jewel today and asked about the 2.99 grapefruit I got yesterday and they said that was a sale for all the jewels but others might not have signs posted..so check it out”

Reader requests

  • A question from Amy on Facebook: “Have you ever looked into leasing solar panels? I know living in IL doesn’t make us the best candidates but I wonder if it would still be worthwhile.”

Tea

  • In response to peaches’ question about tea, Suzann replies: “I love the Republic of Tea brand but it is a little pricey. They serve this tea in the 4 Seasons hotel dining room–it was a great place to treat your self for lunch since their daily specials were so reasonable. That is where I discovered it. I found it ages ago at CostPlus. Too bad this chain was acquired by private equity and they shuttered the location closest to me. They do have a web site—republicoftea.com which I have ordered from. Maybe it is just me but I do not think Celestial Seasonings is as good as it was many years ago–they have gone corporate!!”
  • And in Jane’s opinion: “I think Celestial Seasonings gets stale if you do not use it right away since it is not packages individually like the other brands are. I like some of their teas, just not crazy about that wax paper bag it comes in.”
  • Emily found: “Celestial Seasonings tea has a Cartwheel offer for 20% off; but it expires today 2/27″

Whole Foods

  • A free find from Judy: “The Mambo Sprouts coupon book (Holiday) has a $1/1 coupon off any Enjoy Life product. The WF coupon book also has a $1/1 coupon. The small chocolate bars are normally $1.99 so free with coupons. I think they may be on sale for $1.50 but they weren’t marked on the shelf. The manufacturer coupons expire 2/28.”

Costco

  • From Laura: “Just got a letter from Costco today stating that they are turning the Bedford Park store into a Costco Business Center. Apparently there are only 9 others like it in the country. Basically, they will gear the merchandise to cater to small business. Their hours will change to Mon-Fri 7am-6pm Saturday 7a-4pm and Sundays Closed. It states that 70% of their current selection will change. They will be taking out Apparel & Jewelry, Consumer Electronics, Seasonal Goods, Fresh meat and rotisserie chicken, Bakery & Service deli, Photo Center, Pharmacy, Optical, and Hearing Aid center, and tire center. Not sure if I will like it or not. It’s also strange because as far as Illinois is concerned, it’s was one of the first Costco’s put in here. I guess Orland park will have to get my business on the regular.”
  • And Sabrina comments about the Costco gluten free deals, including Udi’s: “Lisa, we have had tons of the small Udi loaves turn out with huge holes. It especially stinks when you try to make French toast. I agree that since it’s so costly they should fix this issue. I’ll tick to buying the bigger loaves at Costco for sure. My Costco also was selling for $8.99 gluten free black bean “spaghetti” noodles. I bought a box but haven’t tried them yet.”
  • On that black bean pasta, Mandy notes: “They just had black bean pasta on Dr. Oz. They said to make sure you don’t over cook it. They tried 3 diff. gf pasta’s and all thought the black bean to be the best.”

Jewel

  • If you’re looking at the clearance Cuties at Jewel, Kitty comments: “I bought some of the Cuties, and even tho they didn’t look or feel great, they were pretty good. I figured I’d take them back if they were terrible.”
  • And from peaches: “I was at the Jewel on Chicago Avenue in Evanston last night, and I had to go through the pile, but I finally found a box of oranges that weren’t bad for $3.99. There were a few bags that were leaking when I lifted them up. They also had a huge pile of cuties at 10:30 last night. I’ve eaten two of them so far, and they were passable.. The Heritage navels I bought at Jewel for $3.99 a bag weren’t bad..”
  • Shandelle shares some MyMixx madness — did this happen to anyone else? “The Johnsonville sausages and free eggs deal rings up a bit wonky FYI. So online I swore the verbiage on the ecoupon for the free eggs in My Mixx said good for ANY free Jewel brand dozen eggs up to $2.29. So I was like I’ll get jumbos! The cashier scanned 2 packs of the fully cooked breakfast sausages and the dozen jumbo Jewel eggs. Instead of the $1.50/2 ecoupon AND the free eggs coming off, it took off $2 as “free item” twice.. the jumbos were priced $2.19 so that isn’t free and the ecoupon was only supposed to be for $1.50 so I just rolled with it. My brother is visiting and signed up for a My Mixx so I could do the deal twice. We went to get large eggs instead of jumbos, since large were $1.99 vs $2.19. But for transaction 2 using his account, the cashier scanned 2 packs of sausages and the $2 “free item” ecoupon came off without even scanning the eggs! So then she scanned the eggs and the same $2 off “free item” came off again. I handed her a paper coupon for $1.50/2 from the 2/8 SS and it scanned without issue. So that transaction cost only $2.64. Ummm ok??”
  • Also from Shandelle: “Also I want to remind everyone that for the same Johnsonville deal, if you purchase the fully cooked breakfast sausages and use Jingit, they’re offering $1 back for checking in at Jewel and scanning the barcode and another $2 for actually buying it. And Jingit does allow you to cash out for any amount to a linked bank account. No waiting around to accrue. I took these sausages to work and they’re really good and super convenient to have at the office along with my oatmeal.”
  • Kelly comments: “On the Scarlett grapefruit, The Jewel in North Wheaton has the 5lb bags on sale for $2.99. Be careful, though, they are mixed in with 8lb bags that are NOT on sale. Also did the Johnsonville/egg deal. Bought 2 fully cooked sausages ($6) and 1 large egg ($1.48). . My Mixx deducted $1.48 for eggs and $2 for sausages. Then I used $1 off 2 Q. So got all 3 items for $3.”
  • On the clearance Jewel ice cream ellen mentioned yesterday, she follows up with: “i forgot to mention that i got a $1.50 catalina from unilever when i bought the ice cream. not sure what items qualified.” Anyone know the Catalina details?
  • Laura found a new coupon: “New Save $1 on any Wild Harvest cereal coupon on the Wild Harvest Organic Facebook page. Offer available to print until 3/20/15.” In the Chicago area, Jewel carries Wild Harvest.

Meijer

  • From Kitty: “The Niles Meijer has raspberries for 4/$5 and some of them were Driscolls so 25c each with $1 coupon.”
  • And if you do head to Meijer, Jovandi comments on Facebook to look out for: “Lots of clearance throughout the store.”

Target

  • Melissa had asked about the Colgate Target deal, and Juan Ra. replies: “…be sure you grab the ones Optic White “Express White”, those are the one that produce the G.C.”
  • And Kelly confirms: “On the Colgate Optic White, the Wheaton Target did not have the $5 gift card posted on the main toothpaste aisle, but right around the corner in the back, they had an endcap with the toothpaste and $5 gift card deal posted. I bought them and it worked fine.”

Valli Produce

  • Susan spotted another deal: “Also, Imported Krakus Polish Ham $3.44lb”

Walgreens

  • A find from Kelly: “Also, at Walgreens this week, they have Fubble Bubble Wands in the seasonal aisle for $1.00. BUT, if you use your Register REwards card, the price drops to $.59. That is not posted anywhere on the sign nor is it in their weekly ad. That’s the best price I’ve ever seen them at.”

Whole Foods

  • From peaches: “It’s the Original Brat Han’s sausage that is on sale for $2.99. I’ve bought it before at WF, and it is good. It is normally at least $5.99, and so that is a really good deal.. I’ve only had the chicken sausage, but they have other kinds too. They occasionally have coupons for it in the Whole Deal book too, but I don’t know if there are any right now.”
  • A followup plus a question from peaches: “I just checked the latest Whole Deal book, and the Original Brat Han.s is not in there. The coupon book is a lot smaller, and so I don’t know if they have as many coupons, or if they just made the coupons smaller. I just counted them, and there are 39 coupons in the latest one, including a $1 one for Alexia, and a $.75 one for Celestial Seasonings. Has anybody seen Celestial Seasonings herb tea on sale anywhere? It is on sale at Jewel right now, but it is still $2.99. which is more than I am willing to spend. I am also open to other herb teas too. Last year I got some bigelow ginger tea on clearance, but I am almost out, and I have not seen any holiday herb tea on clearance.”

Amazon

  • On the Amazing Happy Birthday Candle, Elizabeth comments on Facebook that: “I have bought 2 of these previously and they are a hit , a one time candle so I suggest buying 2.”

Coupons

Jewel

  • On the three day $1.50 salad sale, a reminder from liz: “just an idea, if you belong to fresh express salad swap..Jewel has their bags of salads on sale but I no longer had the January coupons. They would send $1.00/2 coupons as a reward in my emails and I never used them because we have had higher value coupons the last few months. If you haven’t deleted those emails you can still print them. I had an email from last april I just printed an it expires a week after you print it not when you receive it!! type in email from salad swap to search for it.”
  • And a find from liz: “des plaines jewel has citrus pledge wipe packs clearance for 1.20 in the osco section…normally 4.00..had a 50 coupon and get 1.00 back from checkout 51

Mariano’s

  • Something to look for from Silvia: “Minute multi grain medley rice is $2.19 and there are $1 off peelies on the box so today Wednesday, they were .19″

Meijer

  • Lori S. warns on the Goody deal: “Meijer— Goody Elastic Hairbands, the Meijer on Boughton Rd in Bolingbrook had lots of pegs with 2.19 price but not one package to be had. Employee said they had them all on clearance. Packages they do have all range in price from 3.99 and up. Don’t waste your time going there either!”
  • But Meg had a better experience: “Meijer in Algonquin still has lots of Goody Elastics for $2.19. I got ten for $5.70. Most of it was $2.19 and rest more than $3. I have two girls and we go through them like crazy. There was still lots and lots left.”

Target

  • On Valentine’s clearance, Maureen T shares: “I was at the Lombard target today. Food and candy were 50%, cards, etc were 70%.”
  • And TracyS comments: “My target is 50/70 but I didn’t buy anything. If a stuffed animal is holding a bag of candy, that is food and only 50%. In the dollar spot, black star items are 50%off. Got some hello kitty jewelry over there.”
  • And here’s what Julie found on Valentine’s clearance: “I found 25 count goldfish 0.4 oz valentines packs/bags where you can write the names right on the goldfish packs on clearance for $2.49.  This works out to 10 oz. of goldfish overall and the small regular pouches of goldfish are 6.6 oz, and $1.99.  So, for 50 cents more, you get an additional 50% of the regular 6.6 oz package.  And, they are already in individual bags and great for lunches.  They had the cheddar blast and vanilla cupcake flavors.”
  • On the $1.00/1 Cracker Barrel cheese coupon (ZIP 60148), Heather found that there is: “25% off on Target cartwheel too.”
  • A deal from Kari O.: “The Market Pantry fruit snacks are on sale this week for $1.69. While most of them are the 10 count boxes, most stores also marked down their 50 ct boxes for the same price. I used the $1/3 Mobile coupon that expires today and the 5% off Cartwheel. I went yesterday (2/17) and haven’t checked prices today but the DCPI inventory still shows the $1.69 price.”

Meijer

  • JFS clarifies that: “Meijer’s chicken is from Tyson. I was there one time when the “butcher” department was stocking the cases, and all the boxes were from Tyson. All their chicken is wrapped in the thicker plastic and heat-sealed, not the cling-wrap on trays that the in-house packed stuff is packed in.”

Recipes

  • Liz shares: “If you have nutella laying around, try buttering up 2 slices of bread like a grilled cheese and spread nutella on one side, the other spread marshmellow fluff(I used) or stuff with actual marshmellows and grill it…so good!”
  • Kari O. warns, however: “I keep seeing this “sandwich” on fb and it makes me cringe. There is little nutrients and a whole lot of sugar. lol. Definitely a desert and not really food.”

Reward programs

  • From Jean: “Free 25 point Kellogg’s Family Rewards code: KFRISCRAZYFORYOU expires 2/15/15. Also, a while ago someone mentioned that they weren’t able to print out a coupon reward, but then it said that it had already been printed. Recently, that happened to me and I contacted their customer service and they credited my account with the points which was a nice surprise.”
  • A heads up from Shirley: “FYI-Nature Made Wellness Rewards program is ending. Effective May 1, 2015 members will no longer be able to earn or redeem points for $3 and $7 rewards.”

Target

  • A warning from Jeanette on the Target baby registry: “Target’s registry is terrible….I got 3 toasters, 2 sandwich makers, 2 sets of pots & pans and a whole host of other duplicates. The morning of my shower NOTHING was taken off my registry even though every person said they gave the sheet to the cashier. The women at my shower were pi**ed….I thought there was going to be a riot when I opened the third toaster. Then when I tried to return some of the things I got the lowest sale price even though the stuff hadn’t been on sale in a while. I would never recommend their registry and will never use it again.”
  • Erin had a similar experience: “Same experience at my baby shower in October 2013. Multiples of things bought and nothing taken off my registry. Corporate claimed they’d look into it, but I later found out this has been an issue for years. I will never create another registry with Target or buy off someone’s registry there.”

Whole Foods

  • Shelly comments: “365 brand……..check out the cornocopia web site…….the 365 dairy products/eggs etc get very bad ratings” It looks like it depends on the product. Milk gets good ratings. Eggs, not so much.

Woodmans

woodmans-halos-nivea

  • Two finds from Heather on Facebook: “3lbs halos at woodmans this afternoon used my 50 cent coupons to make it $2.29ea.” and… “Nivea lip balm also at woodmans only paid 29 cents each with the $3/2 coupon.” Nivea coupon: 2/8 SS. Halos coupon: 1/25 SS.

Here are some of the deals (and heads up!) YOU found recently — Thanks! Browse every Reader Deals post here, and: 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.

Amazon

  • On today’s cheap Kindle books, Kari O. comments: “If you’ve got Amazon Prime, I highly suggest the book Wreckage from Emily Bleeker. Free download as a Kindle First because it’s not actually released til next month. Very intriguing story so far and she’s a local author!” Note — it seems now to be $1.99 as a Kindle First.

Cut the cord

  •  A question from JessicaD: “I am thinking about the option of moving to SlingTV, but wondering if there is a DVR-like device that can be used to record programs? I use my Verizon box as a DVR right now. Thanks!” See more on SlingTV in yesterday’s Reader Deals.
  • Jenny’s reply: “I was part of the test bracket last week. So far we love it. We paid 5 extra for the kids package and went to best buy to get a roku 3 (just to get cable installed would have been $100).no dvr option, but after cutting the cord 3 years ago, we got used to not having dvr anyway.”

Jewel

  • A tip from feelgood, if you’re doing any last-minute weekly Jewel shopping tonight: “If you’re buying Ruffles using the MyMixx coupon, look for “Family Size” Ruffles. The bag is slighly larger than the regular size Ruffles, yet both ring up $2.50. The MyMixx $1.00 off came off on the larger size, too. I got the Cheddar and Sour Cream variety.”
  • Outlander comments: “Checked Stella cheeses at my Jewel, but they were 2/$6. Not 2/$4 unfortunately. Still not a bad price, since regular price is like $6.49 each.”

Meijer

Target

  • On the Market Pantry eggs deal, BethP notices there is also $.25 back on Ibotta. So: Dozen Market Pantry eggs were $1.70, and there’s 5% off on Cartwheel to make them $1.62. Get $.25 back for a net cost of $1.37.
  • On the granola + eggs deals, Brandy points out: “Jingit often has cereal, milk, bread and eggs as $.25 back each. Granola counts for cereal, or at least it did when I bought the Nature Valley one last week. But… it’s a weird app. The offers come and go with no apparent understanding of when/why. But I always check when I get home from the store with those basics just in case.”
  • And Outlander comments with some different pricing on the in-store deals I saw today (unadvertised pricing can vary by store): “Nutella is tagged at $3.14 sale price in Streamwood. The eggs are still super cheap- reg. dozen $0.98, and all others 50% off including organic, cage free…”

Whole Foods

  • Jen has an addition to the Top Eight Tips on How to Save at Whole Foods: “I would add that the Whole Foods 365 store brand is a great value and I’ve been really pleased with the quality. Their Olive Oil, canned tomatoes, crackers, etc are on par with Trader Joes prices and I know I’m still getting products without artificial colors, favors, or hydrogenated oils.”
