Mmm, bacon! Help me decipher my Walgreens receipt...

Last week, I wrote about changes to Walgreen's acceptance of Register Rewards. Their coupon policy doesn't allow a Register Reward to exceed the cost of one item, where you could previously apply the balance of a larger $5 or $10 reward over multiple, lower-priced items.

I went to Walgreens today to stock up on bacon (16oz. Oscar Mayer is $3 after Balance Rewards - a super price!) and I had a $5 Register Reward from doing the Crest deal earlier in the week. I still had some Crest coupons left, so I did another round (Crest is .33 per tube after coupon/RR.)

Then, armed with two $5 Register Rewards, I decided to try to use them to buy my bacon. Reader SSMark1 noted that in his experience, as long as you are buying one item in your transaction that equals or exceeds the cost of the Register Reward, in his experience, you could use it. This does contradict the written policy, but I figured - let's see what happens...


Bear with me as I try to explain this, because it's a little confusing.

As I was loading my basket with bacon, I noticed many summer items on clearance. I picked up a mesh backpack for $5.49 (thought it looked like a good way to keep my kids sand toys together and the bag sand-free) and a beach bag for $1.25.

So, I bought one $5.49 item (mesh backpack,) one $1.25 item (beach bag) and eight $4 items (bacon.)

I handed over two $5 Crest Register Rewards. Both scanned without issue, and I paid $29.82 with tax & got 8000 Balance Rewards points ($8) back for the bacon.

Now, the question is...

1) Did both of my two $5 Register Rewards attach to the mesh backpack, as it was the only item that exceeded their $5 face values, or;

2) Is the store's register not yet updated to exclude RRs from being used on lower-priced items?

Walgreens ups the madness with new Register Reward restrictions

Back in May, Walgreens updated their coupon policy to clarify the following:

  • The number of manufacturer coupons, including Register Rewards®/Savings Rewards manufacturer coupons, shall not exceed the number of items in the transaction.
  • Walgreens will not accept coupons that exceed the selling price of an item and no cash back is ever provided in exchange for any coupons.

The first part about the number of coupons exceeding the number of items was not new in practice, but it was the first time this was actually defined in policy.

Now, the second point has been causing some issues in-store recently, and I think it's worth explaining this to fully understand what's going on.


Walgreens has always considered Register Rewards to be manufacturer coupons. Their registers do not allow shoppers to have more manufacturer coupons than items. So, for example:

OLD WAY:

    +         +              

If you had a $5 Register Reward and wanted to buy a $7.99 bottle of Tide, AND you wanted to also use a $2 coupon on the Tide, you could not complete your transaction. In this example, the shopper has more manufacturer coupons than items being purchased.


A bargain-priced idea for luggage organization

A few months ago, when I went on the All American RV Blogger Tour, one of the gifts I received was a set of Eagle Creek Pack-Its, which are small zipper bags that you can use inside a suitcase to organize socks, underwear and other items:

The lightweight bags are made of nylon. After using these a few times since then, I've found that I really like them - they seem well-made, and they keep the inside of my suitcase from becoming a wild mess of belongings! However, this set of three bags sells for close to $40.

We went to Ikea over the weekend, and I spotted a cool four-piece set of "UPPTACKA" travel organization bags in the store:

Now, while these bags are definitely of a different style, the price is different too... this set of Ikea travel bags was just .99!

Jewel-Osco hit by hack attempt

Crain's Chicago Business has an article about a hack attempt at Jewel-Osco:


Jewel-Osco suffered an “unlawful intrusion” made to try to take credit and debit card data, but the grocery chain's owner said it has not determined that any customer information was stolen. All Jewel-Osco stores were affected, according to a spokeswoman. But “as of this time, we have not determined that any card data was stolen and there is no evidence of any misuse of our customers' data,” she wrote in an email. “The investigation is ongoing.”

The chain's parent company said it “believes that the intrusion has been contained and is confident that its customers can safely use their credit and debit cards in its stores.”

The time frame in question may have begun June 22 at the earliest and ended July 17 at the latest, according to Jewel-Osco's owner, a group of firms that includes Cerberus Capital Management, Kimco Realty Corp. and Klaff Realty.

The incident also affected stores in other chains owned by the group of firms, which is offering customers a year of free ID theft protection.


Call AllClear ID at 1-855-865-4449 to learn more about the year of free ID theft protection.

My Jewel-Osco #HugeSale shopping trip for the week...

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Jewel-Osco. I have been compensated for this post. All opinions about Jewel-Osco are my own.

Have you been shopping Jewel-Osco's 115th Anniversary #HugeSale? I found quite a few bargains this week. Here's what I bought...

- Four Kemp's frozen yogurts. On sale for $3, I paid $2 each with the $1 coupon from the 7/27 SS2.
- Five Kraft Mac & Cheese SpongeBob pastas. On sale for .29 each after the "Buy 5" sale.
- Two Cabot cheese blocks. On sale for $2 each, I paid $1.50 each with this $1-off-2 printable.
- Six Pillsbury cake mixes. On sale for .79 each after the "Buy 10" sale, I paid .29 each with $1-off-2 tearpads.
- Four Pillsbury brownie mixes. On sale for .99 each after the "Buy 10" sale, I paid .49 each with $1-off-2 tearpads.

I had some clearance finds too:

- Two boxes of Eggo Bites Vanilla French Toast. On clearance for .89 per box, I'll post-redeem the $1-off-2 from the 8/3 RP2 and get these for .39 per box.
- Two bags of frozen Edamame on clearance for $1.49 each.


Correction to Jewel Mac & Cheese sale: Shapes only

Disclosure: This post is sponsored by Jewel-Osco. I have been compensated for this post. All opinions about Jewel-Osco are my own.

I just got back from shopping the #HugeSale at Jewel-Osco, and there are signs up in the store regarding the Kraft Mac & Cheese that's part of the Kraft "Buy 5, Save $5" sale this week:

The "regular" Kraft Mac & Cheese shown in ad is not part of the sale. You must buy the Shapes varieties (characters like SpongeBob, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles) to receive the .29 post-sale price.

Additionally, Jewel is limiting shoppers to one transaction per customer on the Kraft sale.

New Super-Couponing Tips column: Getting the skinny on double coupons

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Getting the skinny on double coupons." Here's an excerpt:


"Dear Jill,

"Certain parts of the country tend to have more stores that double coupons than others do, and market areas considered to be 'affluent' (whether we agree with that term or not!) tend not to offer as many double coupon promotions. In some regions, retailers double coupons simply because a competitor store in the area is also doubling coupons — they’ve decided to “play along” and double coupons, too, so they don’t lose market share to their competitor."

Friday fun: Remember when generics looked like this?

I was up at my grandparents' house this week and spotted this fun coffee can in the garage:

Remember when generic, store-brand products looked like this? It's almost as if stores wanted to make their house brands look as bland as possible!

Private label has certainly come a long way over the past few decades. So how old is this can, and which store is it from?

School supplies shouldn't break the bank

I recently did an interview for a story about saving on school supplies. It appeared in several Chicago Sun-Times-owned newspapers this week. Read it online at The Beacon-News! Here's an excerpt from the story:


Always on the lookout for penny rulers and 10-cent boxes of crayons, Cataldo urges shoppers to scour the sales fliers and be willing to travel to multiple places to purchase items because one store might have a sale on markers and another on scissors.

If the goal is to save money, Cataldo advises people to avoid buying everything at one store. She said stores drive in customers with one-cent sale items only to charge full price or more for everything else.

Driving around to different stores in one day to take advantage of all the deals might not be the best option either.

Cataldo said she takes several weeks and stops at various stores only when she is in the area. Also by keeping a list of school supplies in her purse, she can pick up supplies that are on sale as she’s out running errands.

While facial issue and lunch supplies are staples for a coupon-clipper, Cataldo said manufacturers are starting to offer coupons on items such as pens and dry erase markers.

She added consumers should be willing to shop at stores that traditionally don’t sell school supplies. For instance, Menards was offering 70-page spiral notebooks and black or blue pens for the whopping price of free, after a mail-in rebate. So Cataldo purchased the 10-notebook limit.

Walmart's Savings Catcher launching nationwide on August 4th

Have you heard about Walmart's Savings Catcher? Savings Catcher launched in a few test markets earlier this year, but it's scheduled to roll out nationwide on Monday.

Walmart's Savings Catcher is supposed to do the job of price-matching other retailers for you! They're advertising it as a shop-and-get-money-back solution so you don't have to do the work of ad matching. You'll shop, then enter a code from your receipt online to see if you qualify for money back:

  • Here's how easy it is: Enter the receipt number and date printed on the bottom of your store receipt.
  • Savings Catcher scans circulars from top competitors in your area for advertised details that match the eligible items on your receipt.
  • If Savings Catcher finds a lower advertised price, you get the difference.

You can sign up to use Savings Catcher on Walmart's site. Then, you can access the Savings Catcher either over the web or via Walmart's app.

More details from the site:

If Savings Catcher finds an advertised price that is lower than what you paid for the same exact item at Walmart, you’ll get back the difference on a Walmart Rewards eGift Card. You can submit up to 7 receipts per week to Savings Catcher.

You have the option to accumulate your Rewards Dollars and build your balance in Savings Catcher or transfer it onto a Walmart Rewards eGift Card whenever and as often as you choose. If you haven’t redeemed your Rewards Dollars at the end of the calendar year, Walmart will automatically transfer them onto a Walmart Rewards eGift Card and notify you.

What happens if I use coupons? No problem, you can still use Savings Catcher. If you use a coupon, Savings Catcher will compare the original Walmart price of the item, before the coupon was applied, to other stores’ advertised prices for the same item. For example: You bought cookies at Walmart. The shelf price was $3 and you used a coupon for $0.25, so you paid $2.75. If Savings Catcher finds that a competitor advertised those same cookies for $2.00, Savings Catcher will still credit you $1.00, even though you paid only $2.75 at Walmart.

Savings Catcher applies to many items sold at Walmart stores. This includes:
Most groceries such as cereal, rice and most fruits and vegetables except for: store brand items, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
Consumable items such as paper towels, bleach and trash bags.
Health and beauty items such as shampoo and makeup.
Select general merchandise items.

Savings Catcher does not currently apply to:
Store brands, deli, bakery and weighed items like meat.
General merchandise items, (including, but not limited to, electronics, media and gaming, toys, sporting goods, housewares, small appliances, home décor, bedding, books and magazines, apparel and shoes, jewelry, furniture, office supplies and seasonal products).
Non-branded items.
Tobacco, firearms, gasoline, tires, prescription drugs, optical and photo products and services, or products that require a service agreement such as wireless, automotive or financial products.

With Savings Catcher, you can earn a maximum of $599.99 Reward Dollars per calendar year.

Sign up to use Savings Catcher on Walmart's site.

Red Lobster to "act fancier" by plating food differently and raising prices

I'm reading a Yahoo story about Red Lobster's new owner and its strategy to "fancy up" the restaurant chain.

Now, I like Red Lobster, but it is what it is -- a casual restaurant with some moderately priced seafood and some higher-priced seafood. Go when there's a special "fest" or feast going, and you can maximize what you're getting for what you're paying.

Well, Red Lobster's new owner has plans to make Red Lobster a finer dining experience. From the article:


Red Lobster wants to be seen as a purveyor of quality seafood, so it's getting rid of some of its promotional discounts and plating dishes higher as is the style at fancy restaurants.

... many people still view Red Lobster as "fine-dining for the middle class." But the push to change perceptions about the quality of Red Lobster's food could be a challenge, given recent promotions like "30 shrimp for $11.99," or a lobster pot pie that had just a half-ounce of lobster meat.

Lopdrup, who served as president of Red Lobster from 2004 to 2011 before moving on to head other aspects of Darden's business, said he planned to end such steep discounting.

"You're not going to see any of these low-priced specials that we're not proud of," he said.

About two weeks ago, Red Lobster also starting rolling out a new plating style for its fish dishes that will expand to other parts of the menu.

Previously, fish dishes were served on rectangular plates, with the fish, rice and vegetables spread out in separate corners. Now when customers order off the "Fresh Fish" menu, they get a round plate on which slabs of fish are piled over the rice, a vertical presentation commonly found at higher-end establishments.

"The food arranged in a way that's more like you'd see at a fine-dining restaurant," Lopdrup said. "The seafood is the star."

As for the food itself, that hasn't changed.


Red Lobster released a photo via the AP to show the improved plating. The old plating is on top, and the new (round plate) plating is on the bottom.

What do you think of this strategy? Honestly, more "attractive plating" isn't a factor in whether or not I want to eat at a restaurant.

The article goes on to state that they will be offering "pricier items" on the menu too upwards of a $30 price point.

Read "Red Lobster tries acting like a fancier restaurant" on Yahoo.
