publix-010716We had an AWESOME pair of Publix trips today! We got a late start, so we didn’t get any of the Centrum Adult Multigummies. (Our store was already sold out.) However, we had a few surprises.

FIRST, the Atkins coupon (good on both the BOGO $3.99 frozen meals and BOGO $6.99 shakes) now autodeducts the $9.99 max value when scanned. One of our stores voided the coupon and manually entered it for the correct amount, making our products free. However, the other store’s manager insisted on giving us a $3 gift card for each coupon redeemed after allowing the $9.99 entry to go through. (Because we didn’t have other items in our order, it pushed our total negative and required an override; however, if we had other items in our order to absorb the overage, the $9.99 would’ve just automatically come off the total.)

The second surprise wasn’t a good one. The Centrum Silver 80 ct did not scan as a match on the SavingStar offer, so if you buy this item you will need to send them an email to get your credit. I suggest including a pic of the product and the bar code in your email if you send a support request.

I’m pretty sure that I will get that $4 Centrum credit from SavingStar, so I’m including those savings in the write-up below.

Extreme Couponing Tip: You can usually get two prints of most internet coupons. To find them in the easiest possible way, use our preclipped links that take you right to the coupon. Then come back and click the same link to get your 2nd print. This will save you the time spent searching for the coupon.

  1. Is there a reason why you used the Atkins coupon at two different stores? Are you only allowed two per transaction?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      One coupon per customer in the fine print of the coupon. We both used one coupon at each store. I doubt the store would’ve cared, but we try to follow the fine print (except in those careless rare instances when we don’t see it or forget.)

  2. kristinita says:

    Steve ibbota has $1 atkins shake and frozen entrees too

  3. Did you notice there are IBOTTA offers for 6 Atkins products? (the shakes and meals are two of them 🙂 )

  4. How do you get the Atkins coupons, if you have previously signed up? Are you using different emails? I think one of your postings mentioned how, but it didn’t work for me.

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Yep. New account worked on all three browsers on my computer that printed previously. Also, my second computer had never printed the coupons before.

      • Ok, you are doing new emails. But I thought one of the postings mentioned how to do it–to reorder or something like that.
