Free Gummy Bears & Cheap Noodles @ Jewel


Through May 31st, Jewel has the Black Forest Gummy Bears and Worms as part of a 10/$10 sale.  Use the $1 coupon in 5/1S and pay tax!  You can still use it at Walgreens this week on the 99¢ organic variety ones, but it’s always good to have a back-up plan!  Coupon does not specify organic and scans fine.


I prefer FREE, but if you’re running low, this is a pretty good stock-up price:  Manuchan Noodle Bowls are BOGO this week, so buy two for $1.25 and use the $1 coupon in 4/24S – 12½¢ a bowl isn’t the worst price you can pay!

Free Beans & Skinny Pop at Jewel


Using the $1 sale price on Cocina Latina beans and the $1 coupon in non-Tribune papers (I’ve seen them in Hoy and Deals Delivered so far), I hit up to $45 with two bags of Skinny Pop…my current drug of choice.  OOP was 79¢ for each transaction.

The Cocina Latina beans are really tasty – I tried them when they first came out, but now they’ve expanded the line.

Overage is a many-splendored thing


When you can’t buy the items you want for the prices you want to pay, overage is a very handy way to shop.  Jewel with the $5/$50 and a variety of Garnier and Fructis coupons – first load.  A few boxes of Puffs, 3-pks of sponges and Hefty gallon freezer bags.  And a whole lot more losing Monopoly tickets…

$5/$50 in Sunday Chicago Tribune

d74bc864-73e0-4f08-a239-6596484d24ccBottom right hand corner of the front page of the Sunday Chicago Tribune is a $5/$50 coupon valid 4/24-26.  I’ve already clipped mine for today’s stock-up on Garnier Whole Blends and Fructis products.  We’re talking decent overage when you combine the instant savings, sale prices and coupons.  I’ll post a few of my transactions later today.

Jewel clearance shopping


Jewel is rebranding heir house brand, so check your clearance cart for deep discounts on Essential Everyday  – they’ve got to dump ’em so the price is certainly right!  The 10 oz jars of sliced olives were only 50¢ and PITA love those, so I grabbed ten, the salsa (they had a couple of varieties) was $1.25, ginger beer was 25¢, organic salads were $3.99 and the port was clearanced at $9.99.  I did not know my Jewel had a clearance wine/spirits section!!!

more Monopoly freebies @ Jewel today


Free Danimals 6-pk and a StarKist 2.6 oz pouch.  Three tins of clearance cart oil at $2.25 each.  Wanted to make sure Osco was aware of the various Fructis coupons in the 4/24 rp, since new coupon + sale + instant savings always attract average shoppers.  And yes, I know that doesn’t apply to us!

Tomorrow starts the Jewel BOGO on pork products, so I’ll be stopping by early enough to grab some boneless country ribs for the Crock Pot.
