Amazon

CVS

  • On Got2B, Outlander says: “There’s $1 back on Saving Star too, for CVS, so could be a good deal there.”

Gluten-free dining

  • Anne shares: “Rev Burger in Carol Stream offers gluten free buns and healthier options. I don’t know if that seems like a birthday dinner restaurant, but it’s an idea.”
  • Some ideas from peaches: “Concerning GF restaurants, are there any Indian middle eastern or vegetarian restaurants in the area? From what I understand there are a fair amount of people from India and Pakistan living in the area, and some of their dishes are GF. None of the chains are going to have very many GF options.You can also go to yelp and put in a zip code and gluten free, and there are several options mentioned”
  • Nora says: “Texas Roadhouse offers gluten free options.”

Jewel

  • Jane says: “Plus there is a store coupon for 50c/1 EE cereal on the front of the Big Book that expires 10-28 [to go with this $1.00/1 manufacturer printable]. Would be great if these are on sale or in the clearance section. I think I saw some priced at just $2 last time I looked but am not sure of the dates on that?”
  • And peaches adds: “When I was there Saturday they had the crunchy nuggets cereal on sale for $2.00″

Magazines

  • DON comments: “I HIGHLY suggest the magazine ORGANIC GARDENING, the only magazine I consistently renew. This magazine comes every other month and is packed with excellent information. This is a great price and as I just found out, I subscribed for 2 years and before checkout was offered a third year for $4.99 which I took advantage of as well. This magazine is straight forward without the fluff and propaganda or speculation, just true and tested info. You will not be disappointed and will feel good offering this on your coffee table.”

Meijer

  • A report from findin’deals: “Suave Professionals reg size shampoo/conditioner is $2.99. Large is $5.19. If purchasing regular size, cashier may adjust one of the $2 coupons to $1.49 to match $1.49 sale price”
  • Sanee is wondering: “A question to any other shoppers of Meijer in St.Charles….Has anyone else had an inconsistent experience with using ‘competitor coupons?’ I carry the policy with me for this reason, but had a horrible experience last night trying to use a target coupon with a manufacturer. I talked with corporate a LONG time ago to make sure the policy was being interpreted correctly and was reassured, but even the “big” manager last night said they can’t accept both and, ‘we’ll do it this time….’ any suggestions?? To my knowledge the policy hasn’t changed….??”

Reader requests

  • Don posts on Facebook: “ISO bread bowls like those at Panera without the Panera price…. any grocery stores etc. sell these?”
  • Lisa is wondering about the tanks on Tanga: “Has anyone gotten these? I’m tall and am concerned they’ll be short…”
  • Meg responds: “I haven’t bought these specifically, but I’ve bought a couple of different variety packs of shirts from Tanga and I’ve been disappointed every time. The quality is not good and the colors are usually weird. Not worth it for me.”
  • From Outlander: “have you heard of some survey site called Paradigm Sample? Just got an email from them. Thanks!”

Walgreens

  • On the Viva deal, letsshop says: “Printed (2) $1/1 coupons for Viva from Jill site ,in case no one seen her blog ! and happy my store had plenty (: so 41.5 per roll”

Whole Foods

  • A heads up from Judy S.: “The $1 coupon on the Imagine site is no longer available. The 17.3 oz soups are $2 in Deerfield.”

Meijer

  • Kerri says: “Saw on theshoppersapprentice about the ad that started for us in Indiana on Sunday. Buy a Meier shampoo or conditioner and get a free goody hair brush. Kids 2 in 1 is 1.79. It was tagged on the shelf that it qualifies for the free hairbrush (up to 6.99!) I tried it and it worked no problem!” This will start Thursday in Chicagoland.
  • A heads up from SmartShoppper: “I got both yogurt coupons too! Note that the free yogurt coupons are good thru 10/2. Only a few days to redeem them.”

Online deals

  • Meg warns: “I bought these [Finish Line fleece] last year and the quality was horrible.  They looked nice out of the box, but started losing their shape and pilling after the first wash.  I also got the sweat pants and they are ridiculously short; they looked like capri pants.  These are not worth even the 2/$40 price.”
  • Charlotte shares: “I saw over on Hip2Save that Carter’s is having a 50% off outerwear sale. I managed to get 2 sets of winter clothes (coats + snowbibs) for $66 total. (Plus some taxes and ended up around $72) I used the code JUST4YOU to get an additional 25% off the order. Now for snowboots, and we won’t be caught in the snow like we were last winter… 5 months of snow, if it happens again this year, we’ll be prepared! :D”

Reader requests

  • One from shirley: “Do diapers count towards the $25 purchase requirement at Kmart? I saw it from somewhere that no points can be used to pay for purchase if you want to earn points? Is it true? Thanks for the help.”
  • Ande H asks: “I can’t get the RedPlum coupons to print in Chrome, Explorer or Firefox. Can anyone give me instructions on how to get these coupons to print? I did download the software that pops up, but it still just sat there, and did not print.”
  • From Charlotte: “Got any tips on how to navigate the new mPerks site? For some reason, I’m struggling, especially on my phone. Maybe I’m just getting old?”
  • Shandelle replies: “Are you using a smart phone? They have an iphone app which is pretty easy to use I think. I had an old old version of it and then noticed in the app store a couple months ago they put out a completely different one. At least for iphone.”
  • Sabrina adds: “If you are using the app, click the search tool and enter the code in the search box.”

Whole Foods

  • Eun reports: “the Imagine soups weren’t 2/$5 at the south Evanston WF when I shopped 9/24. I just bought 2 of the $2.99 varieties.”
  • Something to look for from peaches: “I just got a coupon in the mail from Whole Foods good for $10 off any $50 purchase. The coupon is good through the month of October, but is only good for the downtown Evanston store.”

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..”
