publix-111716I had a GREAT trip to Publix this morning. Stephanie is going back to get a turkey or two later, but I went for a little bike ride this morning and could only haul back so much stuff! I used a $5 off $40 Winn-Dixie competitor coupon on my order today, so there are $5 of additional savings in addition to what is listed with the items below. (FYI – You can get this coupon by buying anything at Winn-Dixie. Take the survey on your receipt and you will get access to print a $5 off $40 coupon.)

I also had an interesting experience today. The woman in line directly in front of me was trying to buy all different kinds of Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice EXCEPT Cran-Pineapple which matches our BOGO sale and the $1/1 printable coupon here. The cashier caught her and the woman tried to justify it by saying that Publix didn’t carry the Cran-Pineapple. Of course, my two bottles were right at the front of my order that was already on the belt next.

I also had a beeping issue after the first BOGO Sprout Baby Food Pouch coupon. When the supervisor came over to advise my cashier, we started to have a conversation and she told me that she had just moved out on her own and wanted to learn how to coupon. I gave her our web site address. She also wanted to know the deal on the baby pouches, and I told her they are free this week with sale and coupon. In fact, I told her she could have all eight of my pouches because I was going to just give them away anyways. So…she printed a duplicate receipt and kept them. That’s why you don’t see them in the picture.

One other issue…while I was chatty, I wasn’t paying good attention to my coupons getting scanned. I don’t see the BOGO manufacturer’s coupons for Dannon Yogurt on my receipt (because they would be $0.65 each.) I wrote up the trip how it would have otherwise happened since I am going to just grab a few more prints from the other computers at my house and get reimbursed next time I go into the store. However, it looks like I may have overpaid by about $2 at the register because of that error.

Now that story time is out of the way, here’s what I bought, along with the coupons used…

  1. Great trip! why you didn’t use the Target 10 off 50 grocery coupon ?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      Because I forgot to ask the person who bought my newspapers to include the Target ad in what they gave me 🙂

      I was also a little shy of $50 on food/beverage items, however I would’ve added more to my order and used it if I had one.

    • Not every Publix accepts Target coupons.

  2. Thanks for your help, I check your site daily. I used the $10 off $50 target coupon this week. I haven’t seen it listed anywhere on your site.

  3. On the International Delights there is a 50 cent off two in the Publix Thanksgiving Simplified booklet. Not a lot but every bit helps right ?
