publix-060615I had a GREAT trip to Publix this morning! I was planning to do a hot Schick deal, but the store had shelf tags with a wrong (but lower) price. That was an awesome development because of the Publix rule when something rings up correctly.

For those of you that don’t know this already, when an item rings up for a price higher than the price listed on the shelf tag, one of your items will be refunded and any other identical items will be corrected to the lower price.

My deal was already going to be pretty awesome, but a little trip to customer service to get my prices fixed resulted in a nice big moneymaker 🙂

Here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used:

Used two BOGO Atkins Product printable manufacturer’s coupon (sign up and choose “download kit”; you will then be able to print your coupon ASAP)

Used two $1.25/1 Air Wick Gadget printable coupons (preclipped)

ONE LARABAR, on sale $1 (regular price $1.25)
Used one $0.40/1 Larabar, Uber, Alt Bar or Renola Pouch printable coupon (preclipped)
NET PRICE: $0.60

TWO SCHICK HYDRO 5 RAZORS, regular price $10.99
TWO SCHICK HYDRO 3 REFILLS 4+1 BONUS CT, regular price $10.49
Used two $10/$20 Edge or Schick Hydro Shave Gel 7-8.4 oz, Schick Xtreme3 Disposable Razor 4 ct or Schick Hydro 3 or Hydro 5 1-8 ct Publix coupon, Health & Beauty Advantage Flyer
and used two $10/2 Schick Hydro Razor AND Refill coupons, 4/26 SS insert (exp 6/7!)
Price at Register: $2.96 (or 74 cents per item!) – This is the deal most of you will get.
My store had a $9.89 shelf tag for the Hydro 5 Razors. After shopping, I stopped at Customer Service and they refunded me $10.99 for one (because you get one free for an item ringing up wrong), plus I got the $1.10 difference on the other one. That’s $12.09 that came back my way, making my deal at $9.13 MONEYMAKER!

There’s also a new $10 off a $50 VISA Gift Card when you buy $50 of groceries coupon in the new Health & Beauty Advantage Flyer. The card comes with a $4.95 purchase fee, so that deal was another $5.05 MONEYMAKER for me!

Total Retail Value of All Merchandise: $74.15
Net Price Paid for Everything: $14.10 MONEYMAKER!
Savings Rate (excluding tax): 119.0%

  1. Was this done in 2 transactions? My store would only let me use 1 atkins coupon per customer due to the wording on the coupon

    • I had broke my trips into to two different days because of the wording. What I thought was funny on my first trip was when I was unloading the cashier, assumed I was not watching, spoke with the bagger while holding the coupon, about the coupon. Then she told me I could only do the deal once because of the wording. I only had two in my cart and was only using one coupon. I guess she felt great to tell me I could only do the deal once.

      • That’s super annoying. Couponing isn’t some kind of conspiracy! If the cashier had a question or comment, they don’t need to “gossip” about it in front of you 😛 I can read things on their faces and I’d honestly rather them opening ask about the coupons instead of silently judging me.
