I've blogged about the truth behind the Walmart Challenge commercials before (see Where Walmart gets it wrong: The comparison-shopping challenge and Walmart's "Receipt Comparison" tool: Inaccurate and misleading.)
Today, Coupons In The News spoke with several of the "Walmart Moms" featured in these ads and learned that their appearances may have been incentivized and encouraged to tilt the challenge in favor of Walmart over the competing store:
Gretchen, who lives in Pennsylvania, was chosen for a Walmart ad in March of this year. Teandra, from New Mexico, shot her ad in April. Each had audition experiences similar to Laura and Joyce. But each ultimately found herself participating in a “savings contest” of sorts. When Gretchen went shopping at her local Weis grocery store, and Teandra went to Albertsons, each found herself shopping alongside another “real Mom”. Everyone was given an envelope of $250 in cash, and told to choose a few dozen items that they would typically purchase.
When they were done, and the prices of their items were compared with Walmart’s, the shopper who ended up saving the most at Walmart was selected to appear in a commercial, while the other Mom was sent home. Everyone got a $250 gift card for their trouble – so the total compensation package still equals $500 – but only the Mom who saved the most got to be on TV. In other words, only the Mom who bought things with the biggest price differential from one store to the next got her moment in the spotlight. So any Mom who might have purposely bought big-ticket items at the grocery store that weren’t on sale, that she knew would be cheaper at Walmart, had the best chance of getting on TV. Just as Schnucks had feared.
... the new “whoever saves more gets to be on TV” method of choosing participants does raise some questions. It lends legitimacy to Schnucks’ suspicion that Walmart “cherry-picked (participants’) receipts from among others in an effort to manufacture the largest price differential”.
Interesting - and as many of us on the blog have said, it would be extremely easy to tilt these ads in favor of either store, depending on what was purchased on which day.

At tonight's Super-Couponing workshop in Darien, attendees were asking about Ebates. If you've never used Ebates, it's easy - and indeed, it does pay you back for shopping! If you're not familiar with how to use Ebates, here's a quick overview.
First, if you don't have an Ebates account, create one online. It's free! This is a great time to sign up too, because you'll also get a FREE $10 gift card to the store of your choice once you make your first purchase of $25 or more through Ebates.
Once you're signed up, any normal shopping you do online, at any of Ebates' 1500 participating online retailers, will earn you cash back! But here's what you need to remember - you MUST log into Ebates FIRST, then select your online store. If you don't do this, Ebates can't track your purchase and award your cash-back bonus.
Pretty much every major department store online participates in Ebates - Kohls, JC Penney, Macy's, Target and more - even shopping site you might not think of too, like Ebay! I've gotten into the habit of logging into Ebates before I look to buy anything online, because so many stores participate in Ebates.
So, come along with me and I'll show you how it works! Recently I wanted to buy something from Radio Shack. First, I logged in to Ebates:
Are you playing the Good Cook Touch Treasure Hunt online contest? This fun, search-for-clues for a chance to win $1000 worth of new cookware web game is still on through May 21st! And, if you haven't entered yet, I have my own blog giveaway that's running in conjunction with this contest. Enter to win one of four Good Cook Touch 2-Quart Batter Bowls!
As we're midway through this promotion, Good Cook sent over some more new Touch products for me to use and play with. My new favorite? The Good Cook Touch Citrus Zester. While I have several favorite recipes that call for citrus zest, I never actually had a tool designed specifically for this purpose. I have always used the edge of a knife. (Not optimal, I know.)
So, now that I have a tool specifically for zesting, I can share with you one of my favorite recipes for seafood! Many years ago, I took a seafood cooking class at Jewel-Osco (do you remember when they used to do those in-store classes?) I still have my recipe instruction sheet from this class, which was taught at the Algonquin Jewel-Osco by chef Kit Moss on February 11th, 1998! I know this because the recipe sheet contains all of that information, and the fact that it's been in my recipe file this long should be an indicator as to how much I like this dish. My own tweaking to this over the past 15 (!) years has been to add a tablespoon of sesame oil too, plus an extra tablespoon of honey -- both of which I'm noting here:

Chicagoland's closest HyVee is in Sycamore, Illinois at 2700 DeKalb Avenue. Call the store at 815-756-6174 to confirm stock if you're making a road trip!
Reader Hometown writes, "The coupons are for free items... There are some really good ones. Butterball turkey burgers, Scott towels, candy bars, ibuprofen, Luigi's Italian ice, 7-up, polish sausage, fruit snacks, detergent, Dilusso cheese, and nuts are just a few examples. Coupons must be redeemed by June 11, 2013."
The free coupons are store coupons, so if you aren't from the area, your best bet is to redeem them at HyVee after you buy your grill.
Reader Crazy4Coupons2 writes, "Made the 1 hr. drive and got myself one! It was worth it! Looking forward to using it soon!"
AND, reader MoneyMom points out that visiting HyVee in Sycamore also puts you in close proximity to the DeKalb Schnucks for some TRIPLE COUPON action today!
If you need a new gas grill, this sounds like a great deal. Today is the LAST day to get the grill!

My husband ran to the Algonquin Dollar Tree today to grab a Tribune for me (so I can get on blogging tomorrow's ads for you!) and this location also had the $1 Luigi's Italian Ices. Who doesn't like free Italian Ice?
The coupons expire 6/14.
