Sunday Ads and Coupons Oct. 24

On the front of my Tribune there's a coupon sticker for free fried mushrooms at Brown's, the chicken place.

COUPONS

Parade has a copuon for a free Doublicious sandwich with the purchase of a 30-ounce drink. Does that seem wierd to you? I think it's weird that they even SELL a 30-ounce tub of pop, much less that they're going to try to make me buy it in order to get my free sandwich. I pass.There's also a coupon for $2/1 Cover Girl & Olay Simply Ageless product.

SmartSource has a coupon for a free Birds Eye Steamfresh Lightly Sauced or Whole Grain blends when you buy one Birds Eye Steamfresh (which is frozen vegetables with rice); $1.50/1 Tully's coffee.

RedPlum has $2/1 Millstone coffee,$10/1 Nicorette, $1/1 Neutrogena hand & body lotion.

DRUGSTORES

For CVS, see my post about getting Halloween candy for $1 a bag. Bumble Bee tuna is 49 cents a can. Milk is paying $1 Extra Buck again, with the same $2.79 price. Limit 2. that's the best stuff I see -- not much going on there.

Walgreens has FREE after Register Rewards items: Colgate Sensitive toothpaste @ $3.49, Contac Cold & Flu 28-ct. @ $6, Children's Mucinex @ $6.99, Chestal Adult Cough syrup @ $6, Pill Glide Swallowing Spray @ $5.99. (Um, what? Gross!)

Wag's also has an in-ad coupon for a 24-pack water bottles for $1.99. Quaker Quick Oats are $1.50 for the 18 oz. cannister, so if you still have a $1/1 coupon get it out. Dole mixed fruit cups are $1.50 for a 4-pack. Scotch tape is 49 cents with in-ad coupon.

Wag's Coke deal: There's a Register Rewards offer for $5 RR when you spend $20 on products including, among other stuff, 12-packs of Coke @ $3 apiece. If you want to stock up on Coke, buy 7 12-packs for $21. After the $5 RR, that's $2.29 each, a sale price that you practically never see.

Kleenex is 89 cents for a 78 or 110 pack. Use the $.50/3 coupon from the 10/3 SmartSource to get them for 39 cents apiece.

GROCERY

Dominick's is advertising a Catalina deal on Sobe: buy 10 20-oz. bottles, get a $5 off coupon for your next order. There's a "buy 3 save $3" offer that gets you Marie's 12 oz. dressings for $1.49 and 10-oz. bags of Monterey mushrooms, also $1.49. See the whole weeks' Dominick's deals from the Wednesday flyer.

Value packs of 93% lean ground beef are buy one, get one free.

Jewel-Osco -- I didn't notice anything great that's new. See the whole week's deals from the Wednesday flyer.

EVERYTHING ELSE

Target has Halloween-colored plastic storage tubs for $4.30. Maybe it's just cause that's all I need, but that's the only exciting deal I'm seeing this week.

There's an Ulta Beauty flyer with a coupon for $3.50 off a $10 purchase.

Menards has free after mail-in rebate items: free reusable shopping bag after 98 cent MIR, free U-snap vinyl gutter after $3 MIR. Finch food bird seed is $3.98 for a 7-8 lb. bag after $3 MIR. And, hey: knit hats are on sale for 79 cents.

Carson Pirie Scott has a coupon for an extra 25% off regular or sale price apparel or fine jewelry, and lesser discounts on other stuff.

World Market will give you a free tote bag with purchase of $10 or more.

Sunday Newspaper Ads and Coupons: Free Eos Lip Balm, Free Schick Razors, Cheap Apple Juice

Lots of freebies in the Sunday paper today! Free Nivea lip balm, free Schick Hydro razors, free Renu contact solution, all kinds of free after Office Depot Rewards stuff, free utility blades, shelf linter and book light at Menards. Scroll down for the deets.

I'm in Milwaukee today, and the Journal Sentinel (home of my first journalism internship) I picked up had only SmartSource and a General Mills insert. But the SS is a nice fat one, with $1/1 GE light bulb which usually results in free bulbs, $1/1 Energizer batteries, $1/1 Tom's of Maine toothpaste and deodorant, $1/1 Frigo string cheese, $1/1 Bush's beans (these usually go on sale for about $1.67) a Walgreen's store coupon for $.50/1 Kleenex 4-pack as well as a $.50/1 manufacturer's coupon for same, and two $4/1 Schick Hydro coupons which make them free at either CVS or Walgreens this week.

There should also be a RedPlum in your Tribune; the JS does not get RP for some reason.

Sunday Tribunbe Ads and Coupons 9/26 -- Free Shampoo at Menards, Money Making Natural Cough Stuff at Walgreen's, Hasbro Coupons

This has to be quick this a.m. because I am off to my first Wrigley rooftops experience. On a Groupon, of course. Between the chilly weather and the crappy team, we may have the place to ourselves. Here are the best deals and coupon matchups I see in the Sunday paper for Walgreens, CVS, Target, Toys R Us, Jewel-Osco, Dominick's and more, plus the four coupon inserts -- a SmartSource, a RedPlum, a P&G Saver and a special Hasbro insert.

RedPlum Coupon Insert: $1/3 bags various candy which matches up with the CVS ExtraBucks deal (see below), BOGO full-sized candy bars, Einsteins's Bagels Qs including one for a 50-cent pumpkin bagel.

P&G Brand Saver Coupon Insert: The usual, + Buy a Swiffer Starter Kit, get a refill free and Buy a can of Swiffer Dust and Shine, get one free; BOGO Old Spice products, and of course plenty of coupons that match up with Jewel-Osco's P&G Catalina deal (see below).

Hasbro PlaySaver Coupon Insert: (If you don't get the paper you can get the same coupons online, plus a bunch more like $2/1 Mr. Potato Head.)

Walgreens

Free Fullbar Fit appetite control bar after $1.99 Register Rewards

Free Emergen-C after $3.49 RR

Free Hyland's Cold n Cough 4 Kids after $4.99 RR -- moneymaker if you use the $1.50/1 printable coupon (thanks Common Sense With Money!)

Vaseline Sheer Infusion Lotion 99 cents after $5.99 RR

Pampers jumbo packs are $6.99 after RR, and you might have gotten a $3/1 coupon in a mailer If not, use the $1/1 from today's P&G Saver.

For the full Walgreen's deals, see Common Sense With Money.

CVS

Welch's grape juice is 2/$5 after $1 ECB. Use two $1/1 from the 9/12 Smart Source to get them for $1.30 each.

I have a $3/$15 coupon from the in-store coupon printer, and I think I'll use it to get my Halloween candy early and stash it in the basement freezer:

Buy 4 bags Reese's or Kit Kat for $10. Buy 5 bottles Dawn dish soap for 96 cents each. Use one $1/3 from SmartSource. Use five $1/1 Dawn (I got these in a special booklet at BlogHer.) Total should be $15 before coupons, $9 plus tax after coupons. Use the $3/$15 store coupon, and I'll pay $6 plus tax, and get back $3 for a final cost to me of $3 for a big bowl of Halloween candy and a year's worth of dish soap.

For a full list of CVS deals, including a free Oral-B rechargeable toothbrush, see Money Saving Mom.

Target

I actually don't see any deals worth reporting in the Target ad. Am I missing something?

Menards -- mail in rebates require a $10 non-rebate purchase

free Physique shampoo or conditioner after $6 mail-in rebate

Super Hook 20-piece set 29 cents after $3 MIR

Eyewear repair kit 19 cents after $3 MIR

folding utility knife 99 cents after $3 MIR

Toys R Us

They put Hasbro stuff on sale to coordinate with the PlaySaver Hasbro insert. Cheapest thing I see is the Strawberry Shortcake Berry Cruiser RC, $4.99 after the $10/1 coupon.

Lots of gift card deals:

$25 gift card with any Mario purchase of $100 or more

$10 GC with Star Wars purchase of $50 or more

$5 GC with SW purchase of $30 or more

$15 GC when you buy 2 Pampers value boxes (see coupons above)

and then, if I'm reading this right, if you buy any of these things in addition ot the Pampers, you can get more $5 GCs: Tide detergent 150 oz. or larger, Dreft 100 oz. or larger, Pampers value box wipes, Pampers Extra Protection diapers mega pack, Pampers Easy Ups 60-68-ct., Charmin toilet paper 30-ct., Bounty giant paper towels 12 ct. With no prices listed it's hard to see how this compares to Jewel-Osco's P&G Catalina deal.

Speaking of which ...

Jewel-Osco

The Proctor and Gamble Catalina deal is this: Spend $30 on select products in a single transaction, get a $10 coupon to spend on your next order. See my intro to Catalina deals to learn how these special deals work, but keep in mind that if you are calculating the amount you spent on pre-Preferred price, Osco items don't have Preferred prices so they don't work that way.

Promising-looking items in this deal are the 100 oz. Tide liquid at $9.99 (use $2/1 coupons from various magazines), 12-ct. Charmin for $6.99, 3-pack Puffs for $4.99, and Big Pack Pampers for $19.99. A good filler to make sure you spend $30 is the $1.50 can of Pringles. Match with coupons from today's P&G Brand Saver.

Please let me know if you try this deal. I do notice that the Tide, Bounty paper towels ($9.99 for 8 giant rolls), Charmin and Puffs have little badges saying "Preferred Price," so you might be able to get a spread on those.

The Sunday Jewel ad also has that $2/1 Bacardi coupon -- but not the $3/1 Sauza tequila. 

Dominick's weekend update has Super Coupons for Huggies jumbo packs diapers at $7.99 -- so break out your expired $3/1 coupons. There's also a SC for Tide 50 oz. @ $5.99 -- but the P&G deal should get you a better price even before you get your $10 coupon back; at Jewel it's $10 for 100 oz., so even before the deal that's $5 per 50 oz.

JoAnn Fabric and Craft Stores has a coupon for 50% off any regular price item, good all week.

Michael's has the usual 40% off one item coupon, and they're having a "Duk Tape Costume Demo" on Saturday, Oct. 2, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Intriguing. 

Carson Pirie Scott has a coupon for 20% off sale price shoes and bags.

Office Max has two-day deals good Sunday and Monday only, including $50 off a cross-cut shredder, making it $49.99. I need that. Too bad I don't have those MaxPerks available yet.

Sunday Tribune Ads and Coupons - Make Money Buying Deodorant

Parade has a coupon for $2/2 Glade 9.7 oz. Premium Room Sprays

Sears has a coupon for an extra 15% off regular and sale priced apparel, footwear and accessories, good 9/10-9/26. According to the ad, you could also get the same 15% off coupon by texting "fall" (3255) to 50101.

Jewel-Osco's weekend update has buy one, get one free Jenni-O turkey breast. Also a $2/1 manufacturer's coupon for Bacardi rum, which expires 9/26. I love turkey and rum, don't you?

The Dominick's update has new Super Price Coupons (require $10 purchase, can be stacked with manufacturer's coupons): Smuckers Preserves or Jam 18 oz. for $1.99, Jif peanut butter 18 oz. $1.49. Happily, there's a coupon in the 8/8 Redplum for $1 off if you buy 1 Smuckers and 1 Jif, so for $2.50 you're in happy school lunch land. Just add bread.

CVS has a moneymaker this week, and may I say it's about time? Make $1 buying Right Guard deodorant thusly: Buy 2 @ $2.99 each, use the $3/2 coupon from Coupons.com, and get $2 ExtraBucks back per stick. So after the coupon you're paying $3, then getting $4 back. CVS also has Revlon lipstick for $1: Buy one for $6, use $1/1 from the 8/15 or 9/12 SmartSource, pay $5 and get $5 Extra Bucks back. (Ooh, Mashup Mom just reminded me that there's a $2/1 Facebook coupon that makes the lipstick free.)

 Aaand, pretty good deal on Huggies diapers: 2/$14.98 after $3 ECB. If you get home mailers, you may have two $1.50/1 coupons on hand, whcih would bring them down to $6 a jumbo pack.

For a full list of this week's CVS deals, see Money Saving Mom.

Walgreens has Quaker Oats for 50 cents after coupon -- it's $1.50 for the 18 oz. cannister of quick oats; use the $1/1 from the 9/12 SmartSource to get it for 50 cents. Reach floss or toothbrushes are 99 cents with in-ad coupon. Have you ever looked for coupons for Reach at your dentist? I got a bunch for $2/1 coupons there, lucky me.

Target has an adorable owl shirt for infant and toddlers for just $5. And KitchenAid appliances and cookware are all 20% off, included -- you know it -- the stand mixer. Other than that, I don't see any deals of note.

Sunday Ads: More Free OfficeMax Paper, Free Candy Corn

OfficeMax is offering those 10-ream cases of office paper for free after MaxPerks again, as well as a free 12-pack of Sharpies, free Scotch tape pop-ups, Post-It pop-ups and Mead Five Star Advance notebooks. Have you successfully used MaxPerks? I went in this week and got the paper, tape and Sharpies, but I can't tell if I'll be getting the rewards or not.

Sunday Ads Deals and Coupons: Free House Wash, Free Tampons, $1 Off Nutella

Well, it's late Sunday afternoon, but if you still haven't decided whether to pick up a Sunday Tribune, here's what's in that plastic bag of ads.

Parade has coupons for $1/2 Libby's fruit products and $1/3 canned vegetables, and another for 60 cents off 1 Kellogg's Raisin Bran.

There's a P&G BrandSaver that includes several BOGO coupons as well as a mail-in form for that P&G Everyday Solutions coupon book -- but you have to spend $50 on P&G products first. The total is before coupons, so if you have any amazing P&G deals planned, it could be worth it. Personally, I am too busy these days to jump through all those hoops.

Sunday Ads and Coupons for August 22

First off, a gripe: I hear a lot of people talking about picking up early Sunday Tribunes on Saturday at various stores for extra coupons. But whenever I buy one, the plastic bag in the middle is always missing lots of inserts, namely the coupons! I have vowed time and again to never waste $2 on an early paper, and yet today I did it again since I'll be too busy tomorrow to summarize the ads for you. Bought it at Walgreen's on Harlem and Lake in River Forest, and, you guessed it. No coupons.

(According to Couponing for 4, this week's Sunday paper should have just one Smart Source in it.)

Here are the only interesting ads I go in my early Sunday Tribune:

Target has a diaper gift card deal. Buy 2 value packs of Huggies or Pampers, get a $10 gift card. Use $2/1 Huggies printable from Coupons.com, $1.50/1 Pampers from the 8/1 P&G, or check your mail -- I got a $3/1 Pampers this week.

Jewel-Osco has added a sale on Italian sausage or bratwurst @ $1.99 a pound. (Jewel shoppers, I have a big treat in store for you later this week with the grocery shopping installment of the Frugalista Challenge. Stay tuned!)

Walgreens is still low on Register Rewards deals. Instead they're having "coupon days," with lots of in-ad coupons. If you still need school supplies, there's one for BOGO backpacks at $9.99. There are RR deals on Pampers and Crest dental care stuff, if you're into that, but no money makers. Blah.

Carson Pirie Scott has a coupon for 10-20% off, depending on the merchendise, that's good Sunday through Tuesday. To use it online, enter coupon code BTSWK4AG810.

Michaels has the usual 40% off one regular-price item product, plus a bonus coupon good all week for 40% off regular price artist paints, pencils, pastels and markers.

Jo-Ann has the usual 40% off one regular-price item coupon.

I will try to add more tomorrow but it may be tough as we are driving to Milwaukee to drop the kids off with their grandparents, and then coming all the way back to Ravinia. La vida mama.

Sunday Tribune Ads and Coupons: Free School Supplies at CVS

This week's Sunday paper ads' best deals are a bunch of freebies at CVS, including free school supplies. School supplies deals are hot all over, and there are a couple good shoe coupons too. Happy back-to-school shopping!

Back to School Deals

CVS free after $1/2 Caliber coupon printing daily from the in-store printer: 70-sheet spiral notebook, 10-count pens, 5-oz. glue. They're also advertising Caliber pink eraser, sharpener, ruler, 10-count pencils, index dividers and school box as BOGO, but I don't know the prices. Will report back!

Sunday Tribune Ads and Coupons: Free Crayons, 99-Cent Pistachios

Chicago Tribune Sunday Ads and Coupons: Free backpacks, 90-Cent Fannie May Ice Cream Pints

Here are the best deals to be found in today's Sunday Chicago Tribune. It's back to school season, so I pulled out the school supplies deals separately at the bottom of this post.

In today's Sunday paper, in the front section, look for Fannie May coupons. There's one valid Sunday, July 25 only, that will get you a pint of their ice cream for one dollar -- from their retail store only. Not bad if you live near one! There's also a buy one, get one free coupon for the ice cream pints, good Monday July 26-July 31.

Parade has a $.50/1 coupon for any Walgreens brand over-the-counter medication, good through 7/31.
