    Jewel had a major problem with people having their points hacked usually by somebody out of state. California was the most common state, and they had to do something. It is still happening on occasion for people that have the Fresh Pass Since I don't have Fresh Pass, I don't have 1,000 points sitting in my account, and so it has never happened to me, but it has happened to lots of people that have Fresh Pass. People would find out that all of their points were used by somebody in California, and they would have to call Jewel and ask for their points back. There are cases where somebody who did not log into their account, would get an email with a code to log into their account. This email would occur, because somebody else tried to log into their account. I belong to the Facebook group Jewel deals with Barb, and there are tons of members of that group that it has happened to. Albertson's is still trying to find a solution so this does not happen. The Facebook group has over 10,000 members. You have to ask to be added to the group, in order to see it. Hope this helps, Nancy

    I was in Jewel last night, and they had Amylu chicken sausage on sale B1G1F. I think the sale ends on 5/21. It is normally $6.79. It is my favorite chicken sausage. They never put it on sale that cheap at Jewel. BTW- The Chicago Ave. store in Evanston has a larger selection to choose from than the Green Bay Wilmette store does. I usually buy it at Whole Foods because they put it on sale at least once a month for $3.99 plus 10% off if you are a member of Prime.

    I could not find the free chocolate truffles at the Chicago Ave. store last night. I will try to go to one of the Wilmette stores tomorrow to see if they have it.

    Nancy: At the Waukegan store they had no truffles, but when I asked they substituted Signature Select sea salt caramels. Apparently they had had truffles, but by 11:30am on Saturday they were all gone. It might be worth asking for a substitution if the truffles aren't available.

    Cynthia: Logging into the JewelOsco website, it's still possible to to do Use Password and avoid fiddling with the email and code.

    There might be an option for you to "use password" instead of the secret code on the same screen that prompts you for the passcode, near the bottom. They'll still send you the email with the passcode. Knowing what I know about IT, my guess is that whoever they partnered with for the passcode duped the pointy haired boss into believing that a few pennies per passcode requested was a bargain, then they promptly made them sign a rock solid contract stating such, and proceeded to tell their programming team to make it mandatory for a passcode to be send under all circumstances. When I log into my account, even if I select "use password" I still get the email with the passcode, and I don't even use the passcode, I just login with username and pwd, like I used to.

    I did get to Jewel-Osco this past Saturday.
    I manuevered my way on-line to clip the digital 'forU' coupons, which this receipt shows accounted for savings of $48.60. I allow you to make your own judgment, but I will allow myself to be tracked for savings of this magnitude. :|
    That was a lousy photo I took of the receipt. I redo it with these two more-processed images.

    Total spent = $39.70

    Of course, there's no real need to put in authentic personal info to get the savings. In my case, Jewel knows that my great uncle who died in 1880’s Philadelphia loves cheap cashews and is a sucker for Saturday Sampler energy drinks. It's fun to see how high a ratio of Total Saved to Spent you can get. Sometimes 3 or 4 to 1.

    Skirt Steak is marked down to $6/lb from $13.49/lb at the southern Wilmette location. No need for a digital account or anything. Hopefully deal is available broadly.

    bweiny,
    The ad says choice, but no mention of trimmed vs untrimmed. My money says bulk uncleaned, which will increase the cost per lb. to the $10 ballpark.
    So typical of Jewel’s predatory pricing. I hope my theory is incorrect.

    Again,
    Trimmed or untrimmed? A skilled butcher will yield about 70%. Not sure about typical home cooks.

    A Jewel question! Within the city, northish or westish side, is there a consensus as to which Jewel location is the most upscale / has the best offerings / maybe has the best buyers for local items etc? Like, is there any difference between Jewel on Milwaukee / Ashland in Wicker Park and Jewel on Clybourn or Southport?

    The Jewel at 370 N. DesPlaines is considerably nicer than Milwaukee and Ashland IMHO. I don't frequent any other Jewels, so I can offer anything more than that.

    I wasn't referring to any printed or online ad. It's cut and trimmed just as it was when priced at $13.49/lb. Absent something really nefarious, the discount is straightforward.

    Perhaps we could expand the question to suburban Jewels too.

    I do know that, from talking to produce staff at various Jewels, there is no store input on produce quality and limited input on selection. "You get what you get" from the Itasca warehouse, and according to them, when there's a popular sale item many times you don't get anything at all. I wouldn't be surprised if the same goes for meat.

    Product mix does vary a lot, with certain Jewels being designated for certain demographics. And surliness vs helpfulness also varies incredibly, from IME horrific at the Northbrook Waukegan & Lake Cook Rds (ditto Streamwood on Irving Park) store to superior at the Lewis Av store in Waukegan.

    Found a sneaky J4U coupon, no sure if anyone else has it (or cares.) Bubly 8 pks $2.49 must buy 3. Not sure if it's a limit of 3 total, or if I can buy as many as I want in groups of 3. Looks like I get to try their new flavors.

    It's in my list of available items when I look at the weekly ad categories so maybe not so sneaky?

    Indeed. Not so sneaky at all. It wasn't in the regular weekly ad's normal places that I look. I looked at the ad again, and saw it in a very straightforward, bigger square section.
    The coupon now says, "Unlimited Use."
    Stock up time.

    I picked up several small (.63-.68lb) skirt steaks today at $5.99/lb. All but one went into the freezer, the last got a shawarma marinade, then grilled with onion, cherry tomato, eggplant and bell pepper, and the Cook's Illo naan (yogurt yeast, flour, salt, bit of sugar, cooked in cast iron on the stovetop), tahini sauce and ajvar.

    For inside skirt, it was beautifully tender (maybe the lemon juice in the marinade?). Probably one of the best meals I've had at home in a long time. Everything just worked.

    I'm glad you mentioned the naan with yogurt. It is on my short list to try. Your method certainly seems worth emulating.

    I think I got two of the Breyer's coupons at either the Chicago Ave. Jewel in Evanston, or the Wilmette Jewel on Green Bay this last week. I forgot about them until you mentioned it.

    BTW- I think the Breyer's is part of the buy $25 and get $5 back. There is a dairy one going on through 6/30, and I think there is another one that is maybe the ballpark one.
