publix-062515I had a great little trip to Publix today! I had considered doing a larger transaction, but instead opted to use one of the $5/$20 Publix store coupons that came in the mail packets after setting up mail forwarding with the U.S. Postal Service. Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

  1. The Ben & Jerry’s is reg $1.39 each where I live (S. Florida), Steve. I assume they’re still $1.39 today. You do live in a lower cost area than I do, it appears (your mayo is $5.29, mine is $5.69).

    • Steve Pinski says:

      That sounds about right. I think I remember looking at them in the past and salivating, but then deciding that $1.39 was too much.

      • i got the Ben and Jerry my store in Alabama is 1.00 each

      • Just got back from Publix. The Ben & Jerry’s was $1 here. No shelf markings of any sort and no notation on the receipt.

  2. Jennifer says:

    Is the old bay an unadvertised sale of BOGO? Just did not see it in my ad from SC. Thanks.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I think it is advertised, but it might be text only without a pic. Sometimes they picture one item and the text says something like XYZ product or Old Bay Seasoning, BOGO

  3. I know it is probably in another post somewhere, but where did the $5 of $20 coupon come from? TIA

    • Steve Pinski says:

      It’s in the post. In my area when you change your address with the post office a $5 off $20 Publix coupon is in the confirmation welcome package the post office sends you. There were a lot of great coupons in there, including a 10% off total purchase Target coupon and this $5/$20 Publix coupon.

      I had to forward from a few address, plus so did my roommate, so we have a few more of them 🙂

  4. The Old Bay Seasoning is such a great deal. The person in front of us and the person behind us had the coupons. I used my coupons. While checking out my cashier stated she saw this, printed the coupons and was going shopping after her shift.
