Spanish coupon insert: "SmartSource en Espanol"

My Chicago readers know that the Spanish newspaper "Hoy" often has coupon inserts in it. The Hoy inserts are usually comparable to the non-Tribune coupons we find in other area papers (that is, a thinner insert, but of course, still good to have, as Hoy is a free publication, both found in newsstands and delivered within city limits.)

However, this past weekend's Hoy Fin de Semana (weekend edition) contained a surprise... SmartSource en Espanol! The coupons that came in this new Spanish SmartSource are different than what's in the standard SmartSource for 5/2 -- right away, the .45 off any Knorr product jumped out at me as an excellent one, as it will line up nicely with the $1 Knorr in the current Catalina deal at Jewel.

Many of my downtown readers have written in the past to say that Hoys are delivered en masse to the lobbies of their apartment buildings... and if nobody picks them up, a day later, these Super-Couponers are more than happy to "clean up" all the Hoys... and keep the coupons! Why not? Keep your eyes open for these!

Special thanks to Super-Couponer Christal Meyer who brought these to my attention (and gifted me with a nice stack of SmartSource en Espanol inserts at last night's Glen Ellyn class! Thank you!)

where do you find this paper? i looked today around by my house? i have to wait until Sunday to get the paper..haven't done this yet, just heard about it ...thanks in advance

Not available everywhere

You see Hoy closer to the city (Chicago) in newsstand boxes and some neighborhoods automatically get it delivered. Way out in the burbs where I live, we don't. It's just one of those bonus Chicago coupon shopper things..!

catalina deal at jewel

Could you please tell me what deal is going at jewel? I have a lot of those coupons, and I would like to use them. Thank you very much for all you do for us.


They're in the Unilever "Spend $20, get $5" Catalina -- the Knorr side dishes are $1. With these coupons, you can buy them at .55 each AND get a Catalina back if you work them into that sale.

thank you.

Thank you very much for your help.

Knorr Side Dishes

If someone is able to use the coupon for the Knorr side dishes please let me know, I did not even know those side dishes existed.The only reason I have my doubt is because my household which is hispanic, only knew knorr because of the bouillion and Knorr is the name of the product, if you go to you will see what I mean(you can click english on the right side at the top), that is what most use for the spanish rice and is what is on the picture of the coupon. Thanks and sorry but I am not brave enough to try it since my budget does not allow mistakes, if the coupon does work with the sides then I might try a few to see if we like them. Thanks

Any Knorr Product

The coupons state they are good for any Knorr item, which will include the side dishes (the photo shown on the coupon itself does not matter -- the text "any Knorr item" tells us what the bar code is coded to work on.) The side dishes were formerly made by Lipton before they merged with Knorr. Knorr does make a pre-mixed Spanish rice side as well as numerous other flavors -- Asian, fettuccini, etc. You can see the side dishes on the back page of the current Jewel ad.

I went to Jewel early this

I went to Jewel early this morning and I was only allowed to use two of the Knorr coupons on the Knorr side dishes, I had eight. After the cashier scanned the third coupon it beeped, first the cashier said it was too many coupons and I told her I had never heard of that since I had more items than coupons, then she called someone from CS over and they both kept saying that it was for the bouillion which I kept saying to read that it said any Knorr product and that it had taken the first two, they did not budge so I just told them to give me back the coupons. What would cause the third coupon to beep if it had already taken two? Sorry about all the questions but I'm trying to eventually be able to Black Belt. Thanks.
