Publix 3/10 & 3/11 (Maureen) – $2.15 Profit on $149.03 in Merchandise (101.4% Savings Rate)

NEVER MISS A HOT DEAL! SUBSCRIBE TO OUR DAILY EMAIL NEWSLETTER!

I shopped Publix on Friday and Saturday this week and combined the trips into one write-up. My Publix accepts Winn Dixie coupons, so I used a $5/$40 Winn Dixie total-order coupon in both transactions.  The Winn Dixie coupon is a courtesy coupon for completing a shopping experience survey. Information about earning this coupon is at the end of every Winn Dixie register receipt. The $10 savings from these coupons is factored into the final tally. If you want to duplicate any of these deals that require cashback rebates, be sure to check your accounts before shopping to make sure the rebates are still available.  I am pretty sure the Checkout51 rebates for Bush’s beans and Emerald Nuts reached maximum yesterday.  I am not sure about the availability of other rebates.

FYI – I forgot to pull the Hormel trays out of the fridge for the photo.

  1. Your AMAZING at what you do! I was wondering though about the Publix gift card isn’t it the price after coupons are applied that counts toward the $50. Thats why I guess I never really thought to upload any receipts because I would NEVER make it to $50 after coupons are applied.

    • The price of the product as it rings up (regular price or sale price) counts, not the net price of the product after coupons.

      Edit to clarify.

      The following Publix rebate programs track the price before coupons (I am participating in these three):

      Stocking Spree
      Best Meals Happen at Home
      Be the Best You

      The P&G rebate to get a free beauty bag when you spend $25 in qualifying products tracks the price AFTER coupons. I am not participating in that one.

  2. Great trip.

  3. I am very excited… we are getting publix to our area within the next year or so and I hope they will work the same as in many areas… since Kroger stopped doubling and we no longer have Martins (giant – or well they are almost all gone in our area) – there are no stores that double coupons… even wegmans does not here because I guess they don’t feel the need to.

    • Kroger just dropped doubles in the Knoxville, TN area. That was Kroger’s last remaining double-coupon district, and it’s currently Publix’s only remaining double-coupon district. I am sure Publix will stop doubling there sooner rather than later.

      Publix is great even without doubles! 30-40 BOGO sales every week (and they don’t jack the prices up for BOGO sales), LOTS of Publix coupons, great rebate programs, and Publix takes competitor coupons. It’s the greatest grocery store I’ve ever shopped in.
