I had a pretty good day at Publix. I paid $48.03 for a $50 Gas Card and $70.79 of products, so it’s like I got all the groceries for free plus a $1.97 profit if you figure the gas was going to be bought anyways. If you exclude the $10 saved on the gas card, then you could come to the conclusion that I paid $8.03 for the groceries and $40 for the gas card itself. (If you compute it that way, then I saved about 89%.)

Again, I paid a total of $48.03 out of pocket for all of the groceries and a $50 gas card. That is how I come to the conclusion that I had a $1.97 profit on the groceries. However, if you consider the groceries and discounted gas card seperately, my savings rate would compute slightly differently.Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons.
