CLICK HERE to join our new "I am a Couponaholic" Facebook Group.

UPDATE (from Steve): Naomi made a little mistake on the Alexia deal. I called her to let her know that she should have used on manufacturer coupon plus one Publix OR competitor coupon, not all of them. She’s clear on the matter now, but we’re going to leave the trip up as posted so all the numbers add up. FYI – Naomi’s been couponing for just a few months, but she’s doing great, especially because she eats much healthier than most of us ;)

So today I was going to go to Whole Foods, but I decided to go to the Greenwise Market instead to take advantage of the gas card deal. There was a couple of things on my list that they did not have so I may still need to head over to Whole Foods this week, but I may put it off to get one more gas card out of Publix. Again, no carefree but I did get a nice deal on the Van’s and Alexia. The Reeses was a special treat to get me up to $25 and through work tonight!

  1. great trip! Can’t wait to try the alexia sweet potatos. what’s a whole foods coupon? is it a store coupon, and i can use it with the publix coupon and manufacturer coupon? where do i get it? I’m in north pinellas,Thanks.

    • Their sweet potato fries are delicious! The Whole Foods Coupons are store coupons for Whole Foods. My Greenwise Publix in Tampa considers them a competitor so much like Steve gets to use Target coupons at his Publix I get to use Whole Foods coupons at mine. Which is nice because the parking lot at Whole Foods can sometimes take over 15 minutes to get out of, and I wish that was an exaggeration!

  2. You are so lucky you get to stack the whole foods coupons with manufacturer coupons and publix coupons. Mine only lets me use a manufacturer coupon and eihter Publix coupon or a competitor coupon.

  3. The way Wolfang Puck’s sale is advertised in my Publix, is quite confusing, because the sign says 2/$4 32oz. broth, but that sign is on the shelf where 16oz. canned soups are! I asked the employee about that, and he told me that organic broth is included. But when I took it to register , it did ring
    $2.89 each.

  4. Are the gas card coupons different in different areas? the gas card coupon in my area says you must spend $50 on groceries, not $25, to get the gas card.

    • Apparently there are different versions, because the coupon only requires a $25 purchase in the Tampa Bay Publix ad.
