Jewel-Osco posts updated coupon policy

Jewel-Osco has posted an updated version of its coupon policy on its website.

As I posted about last month, the new policy indeed excludes all store competitor coupons:

Competitor’s Store coupon: Effective November 1, 2013 Jewel-Osco no longer accepts Competitor Store Coupons

And, while the employee heads-up I got last month noted that no coupons with another store's name on them would be accepted, here's what the new policy actually says:

Catalina Manufacturer Coupons with the verbiage “Redeemable only at” [a competitor]) CANNOT be redeemed at Jewel-Osco

Catalina STORE Coupons issued from another Competitor/Retailer cannot be accepted.

To me, this would indicate that Catalinas from Dominick's, or Meijer, which are manufacturer coupons could still be accepted as long as they do not say "Redeemable Only At." However, I would expect some resistance on this, as all of the employees at my store were told that they couldn't accept anything with another store's name or logo on it...

The remainder of the policy appears to be the same -- overage is still allowed and can be applied to other items in the same transaction, and you can still use one manufacturer coupon on each item (Buy One Get One Free.)

11/8 UPDATE: Jewel responded on Facebook to clarify this part of their policy:

It was a pleasure to appear on Windy City Live this morning! Looking to get the Cottonelle deal I talked about on today's show? Here's how to do it:

$2.48 Cottonelle bath tissue at Walgreens

12 big roll packs of Cottonelle bath tissue are on sale for $3.99 this week, and they're also part of a Catalina Register Rewards deal:

- Buy two packages, get a $2 Register Reward

So, buy two. Use two of the following .55 printable coupons:

$0.55 off ONE (1) COTTONELLE Toilet Paper

Pay $6.88 for two and get a $2 Register Reward! That's $4.88 for two, or $2.44 each! This works out to just .20 per big roll, a great price! (Our benchmark bath tissue low prices are .25 per roll for a single roll, .50 per roll for a double roll. These big rolls fall somewhere between a single and double roll in size, so this is a very good price.)

Register Rewards function like cash for your next trip to Walgreens - $2 to spend on something else.

New Super-Couponing Tips column: Readers Spot More Shrinkage

This week's syndicated Super-Couponing Tips column is entitled "Readers Spot More Shrinkage." Here's an excerpt:

In my role stocking shelves at a local store I’ve noticed packages of toilet paper getting smaller. The number of rolls is the same, and the number of sheets is the same. However the width of the rolls is shrinking. When you shop for TP, look to see if one package is taller than another and compare the square footage of the package.

An unsolicited testimonial for CVS Hydrating Makeup Remover wipes

Disclosure: I received this package of CVS Hydrating Makeup Remover Towelettes free at a recent CVS' bloggers event. All opinions of the product are my own. But I can tell you, they absolutely rock at taking KISS makeup off.

Halloween was last week, and I attended three different parties dressed as (what else?) the great Paul Stanley of KISS. This certainly isn't the first time I've dressed as Paul -- I've been Paul for many Halloweens with a variety of classic Paul stage costumes! But, as any KISS makeup-wearer will tell you, getting the greasepaint off afterward isn't always the easiest thing to do. It's not water-soluble, so soap and water just don't do the job. Cold cream cuts it somewhat, but usually it becomes a scrub-fest in which you feel you're exfoliating multiple layers of skin to remove the makeup.

At CVS' bloggers event in September, CVS gave us an assortment of products to try, and on a whim I grabbed the pack of CVS Hydrating Makeup Remover wipes. I was shocked how easy the makeup came off, and when I was ready to un-KISS the next night, I had my husband film a little video of me doing my thing. If these wipes take this makeup off so easily, imagine what they'll do for your everyday Cover Girl or Maybelline cosmetics? Woo hoo!


Walgreens Cottonelle deal just got better: $2.44 for a 12-pack!


.55 off
Cottonelle Bath Tissue
Print Coupon

Walgreens' deal on Cottonelle just got better this week, as a Catalina began today:

- Buy two, get a $2 Register Reward
- Buy three, get a $3 Register Reward

12 big roll packs of Cottonelle bath tissue are on sale for $3.99. So, buy two. Use two .55 printables. Pay $6.88 and get a $2 Register Reward! That's $4.88 for two, or $2.44 each! This works out to just .20 per big roll, a great price! If you have three printables, do the same deal but buy three and get a $3 Register Reward - more TP at the same bargain price.

There's also a .50 coupon in the 10/13 SS.
