publix-marilynOne of our readers, Mari, sent me an awesome Publix shopping trip via email. She shopped the first day of the new sale (Wednesday 8/20 in her area), and her trip was a moneymaker!

There’s a Publix gift card in the picture to the right but it is not included in the calculations for this trip; she bought this gift card so her total did not go below zero and require a supervisor override. Mari also used a $5 off $30 Winn-Dixie competitor coupon from the Enjoy the City coupon booklets, so there’s an extra $5 of savings beyond what is listed with the individual items.

Also, we’re sending Mari $10 for sharing her great shopping trip with us. She included the receipt, pic of items and full breakdown so it made it easy for us to post :)

    The $3/2 Sundown coupon link is a bad link. Can you post a good link please?
