We had to stop into Publix to do a last minute deal. The cats were running low on wet cat food. (By low I mean that we had less than a month’s supply left of their wet food.) Since today was the last chance to do the gas card deal, it was our final opportunity to get the cat food for free (if you consider that we are buying the gas anyways.) Unfortunately we were pressed for time, so we didn’t get to a store that would take our Temptations Treats coupons that were expired by a few days. (Some Publix stores accept expired coupons if they aren’t too far past the date.) Oh well
Anyways, here’s what we bought and the coupons used:
THIRTY-SIX WHISKAS CAT FOOD TRAYS, regular price $0.55
FOUR WHISKAS TEMPTATIONS CAT TREATS, on sale $1.50 (regular price $1.79)
Used six $1/6 Whiskas Cat Food Trays, 3/4 RP newspaper insert
and used four B8G1 Buy eight Whiskas Trays, get Temptations free Publix printable store coupon (these automatically deducted $1.79, instead of $1.50)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $12.64 (or 32 cents per item)
ONE HEAD OF ROMAINE LETTUCE, regular price $1.99
No coupons used
NET PRICE: $1.99
ONE PUBLIX HUMMUS 7 OZ, regular price $2.99
Used one $2/$2+ Publix Deli Department Purchase, 4/15 Tampa Tribune
NET PRICE: $0.99
We did the gas card deal, but it is left out of the statistics on this deal because gas isn’t part of the grocery budget. We also used a $5 off $30 coupon from the Publix Spring Cleaning Booklet.
Total Retail Value of All Merchandise: $31.94
Special Price Savings (Sales/BOGOs): $1.16
Coupon Savings (Manufacturer/Store): $20.16
Net Price Paid for Everything: $10.62 plus tax
Savings Rate: 66.8%
But if you consider we were going to buy the gas anyways, the entire purchase was nearly free. The final out-of-pocket cost was $50.62 plus tax and the deal included a $50 Gas Card!Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons.
