publix-maureen-102016I haven’t griped out loud, but I’ve had a lot of trouble with my printer lately, including today. We have a great Publix sale filled with lots of great deals, but I’m not going to get out to the store until I either fix or replace this printer. With that in mind, I reached out to one of our frequent commenters (and someone who provides great trips to me regularly)…Maureen (aka MauraFlorida in the comments on our site.) She graciously snapped a picture of her Publix shopping trip today and shared her shopping list with me so I could show you her awesome trip and the great deals she snagged.

There are a few coupons she used today that aren’t included with the individual items below. She had over $90 of items in her order, so she was able to also use a $5 off $40 Winn-Dixie competitor coupon on top of the $10 off gas card coupon (valid with $50 purchase.) Those two coupons combined account for an additional $15 of savings beyond what is listed with the individual items below. Those savings are accounted for in the final statistics for this trip.

So…here are the awesome details of her shopping trip today…

  1. There’s a Saving Star offer for Sargento cheeses too, and there is a immediate bonus “boost” you can do for the snack bites.
    I’m hoping it would still be able to be loaded 🙂

    Mine is $4.00 back, when you purchase $25 of Sargento products. (you have until the end of the year to acquire the total amount needed)

    Steve, a suggestion for your printer (even though I don’t know what is wrong with it)…..have you tried uninstalling it and installing it again?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I haven’t tried that. I think it is a router issue, but I’m not 100% sure. I will try downloading a fresh copy of the printer drivers tonight.

      Also, Maureen did have the SavingStar listed on her shopping list. I forgot to put it into the post.

  2. Awesome haul!!! Sorry about your printer…I feel your pain..I cant get mine to work either….glad I have a great sister that prints everything I need..good luck with your printer issues

  3. I can print any coupon without a problem except anything that uses “Revtrax” printing. Also sometimes have to turn off my virus protector when printing.

  4. I think everyone has some printer issues at times when printing coupons.
    I think one site (no names mention) wants it to be really hard to get a coupon.
    And what’s up with none asking for phone number so they can text you a code?
    Anyone know?

    • Steve Pinski says:

      I think they are trying to limit folks that have tons of computers or that do shady things like partition their hard drives to get tons of each coupon. By confirming a phone number, they can limit people to two prints per phone number they have access to. Additionally, they have another more reliable way to hunt down people that photocopy their coupons.

      At least that’s my guess as to why they are doing this.
