Several readers have put together a nice deal on All laundry detergent at Jewel!
Readers DaisyRuiz1 and MomOf4 spotted a new coupon book at Jewel filled with store coupons. It's found near the pharmacy and contains, among other things, a store coupon for $1.50 off All Free and Clear detergent. Grab that (it's limit 1 per transaction.)
All is priced at $2.99 through 4/28. Reader Eztupp suggested combining that deal with the "Spend $15, Get $5" SavingStar ecoupon offer through 4/10. If you loaded this ecoupon when it was available, you can split this offer across multiple transactions - remember to scan your Jewel card each time to get credit though. You can use coupons with this SavingStar offer, but the post-store-coupon total is typically what SavingStar considers as the selling price.
UPDATE: Just back from my Jewel, where I finally found the new coupon books. The store coupons are limit one per CUSTOMER but they say "limit 2 bottles per transaction." They do NOT ring off two bottles even if the coupon is scanned twice. My store says the limit 2 is a misprint.
The 3/10 RP has a $2-off-2.
Buy two All (one MUST be Free and Clear) at $2.99 each for $5.98
Use $2-off-2 and $1.50 store coupon: $2.48
Pay $2.48 for two detergents - $1.24 each!
That's already a fantastic deal. But it gets better with the addition of multiple coupons and SavingStar. Note that if you are doing multiple transactions, the store coupons are one per CUSTOMER. And, your POST-STORE-COUPON total is what counts toward SavingStar.
This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Dig these digital savings tools." Here's an excerpt:
Is there an app or other tool for comparing product prices? I don’t have a lot of time for comparing newspaper ads and am hoping you can suggest another way to make sure I buy at the best price. I shop at three different stores and would love to know who has the best prices for what I need this week. Thanks for all of your great advice!

As I reflect on almost five years of writing about coupons and deals, I've seen many changes. Coupon values have changed; policies have changed; frequencies of great sales have changed. One thing that hasn't changed? My love for cooking on a budget! Over the past two weeks I've experimented with posting deals earlier than I have in the past, which honestly has been more of a workload and time undertaking than I anticipated. I've been considering lightening up some of my deal blogging and shifting my focus to writing about eating on a budget and sharing recipes with you that focus on eating well on less. Over the years, I've learned some unusual and wonderful methods of gourmet cooking for budget-conscious families that I think many of you will enjoy! As I take a break from deal writing, I hope you enjoy my first installment of "Cooler Cookin' With Jill!"
Cooler Cookin' with Jill: Sous-Vide Steaks
As a cooking show junkie, I've been fascinated with the sous-vide cookers many of the top chefs use on television. A sous-vide water oven is a kitchen appliance that cooks meats and vegetables in vacuum-sealed pouches in a heated water bath. Think a slow cooker without the variable heat on-off cycles that a slow cooker utilizes -- as well as the absence of air. If you've eaten a steak or chicken breast in a restaurant and thought, "I can't believe how tender and juicy this is," chances are that it was cooked sous-vide.
Sous-vide is French for "under vacuum," though in cooking terms, it refers to the method of cooking to a specific degree in a water bath. Benefits of sous-vide cooking? When you cook to a specific, consistent degree in the absence of air, food consistencies develop that are simply impossible to duplicate with traditional air-heat cooking methods. (Remember the gastronomic dinner I attended and blogged about last year? The egg and salmon dishes shown in that post were cooked this way.)
Sous-vide cooking is usually done with a sous-vide water oven such as this one, though a "bargain-priced" cooker will cost you more than $300. That's a hefty investment if you'll only cook sous-vide occasionally. Fortunately, there's another way. I'm going to teach you to cook the best steaks ever in a cooler. If a cooler keeps cold things cold, it can also keep hot things hot. Believe it! Your cooler can get hot enough to cook steaks and more.
You will need:
- A cooler
- Ziploc freezer bags and a drinking straw OR a vacuum sealer and bags
- A cooking thermometer (I used a candy thermometer)
- Steaks (I used four boneless sirloin steaks)
