Publix has some great digital coupons (Steve posted about them a few days ago), but they are being troublesome (not coming off at the register. values and expiration dates fluctuating, full value is not coming off for True BOGO sales, etc.). But they are great coupons, so worth the trouble if they are still available to load. One of them is a digital coupon to get $10 off groceries when you spend $50 on MasterCard gift cards (minimum $10 grocery purchase). It expires Saturday, April 1. There is a $4.95 activation fee for a $50 gift card, but it’s still $5.05 off groceries, and since it’s a manufacturer’s coupon, it can be stacked with a total-order store coupon. Therefore, I was able to use a $5/$40 Winn Dixie coupon and the $10/$50 Publix MasterCard digital manufacturer’s coupon for buying $40 in groceries and the $50 MasterCard gift card, giving me $10.05 off $40 in groceries before other coupons. The Winn Dixie coupon is a courtesy coupon for taking a shopping experience survey. Information about this coupon is on every Winn Dixie register receipt. Note: I did not include the $50 for the MasterCard gift card in my tally because to me, it’s like cash.
BONUS DEAL ALERT! Do you see the bananas, oranges, and pineapples behind my Publix items? I bought them at Aldi this week. Bananas $0.44/lb, pineapples $1.29 each, and 4-lb bag of navel oranges for $1.79.

ONE SISTER SCHUBERT’S SHAREABLE BREAD, ON PRICE CUT $1.99 (REG. $2.29)

Price at register $1.24 but received $1 from ibotta
NET PRICE: $0.24!
Note: After paying attention to the ibotta video I had to watch to unlock the rebate, I heard this product described as a way to enjoy “hot, shareable rolls,” so the coupon is a match even though the product is described as bread.
THREE RESER’S MAIN ST. BISTRO MASHED POTATOES, 2/$6 (REG. $3.79) (Unadvertised sale)
Used three $1/1 Reser’s Main St Bistro 20-24 oz printable coupons (no longer available)
NET PRICE PAID: $6.00 ($2 each)!
Note: These are good and very handy to have in the freezer. Whenever a Reser’s coupon is available to print, I print it because Publix has frequent sales, and sometimes the coupons have long expiration dates.

Other option: $1/1 Lifeway ProBugs, 03/26 SS (exp 7/31) [4-pack]
Other option: $1/2 Lifeway 32 oz Kefir® products printable (preclipped)
Other option: $1/1 Lifeway Probugs (Whole Foods) [4-ct.] if your Publix takes Whole Foods coupons
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $3.00 (50 cents each)!
Note: If you like drinkable yogurts, try kefir. It’s very similar with a slight carbonation. And if you bake with buttermilk, unflavored kefir makes a great substitute. Also note that this is a double sale. The Lifeway products are on sale in the Green Grocery Flyer ending 3/31 and are BOGO in the currently weekly ad. With coupons, this sale is especially good. The weekly ad lists the sale price as BOGO “save up to $3,” so this BOGO $3 price should hold all week even when the new Green Grocery Flyer starts on Saturday, April 1, and the products technically revert to the regular base price.
TWO NABISCO CHIPS AHOY! COOKIES, ASSORTED VARIETIES, 7 TO 15.25 OZ. PKG., BOGO $3.79
Used one BOGO Nabisco Chips Ahoy Thins Publix Digital Coupon (CS deducted $3.79)
NET PRICE PAID: FREE!
Note: This digital coupon did not come off, so CS had to manually deduct the value after checking my digital coupon account. Other people are reporting that if the coupon does come off, it’s deducting 50% off regular product price. Also this coupon was first available with a 5/30 expiration, then it abruptly changed to a 3/30 expiration, then it went back to a 5/30 expiration. The max value also changed from $2.99 to $3.70. It’s a volatile coupon.

Used two $0.75/1 Softsoap® brand Liquid Hand Soap Pump (8 oz or larger) or Refill (28 oz or larger) printable coupon (preclipped)
Used one $0.75/1 Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap, 03/26 SS (exp 4/8) [28-oz.+ refill; 8-oz.+ pump]

Other option: $0.50/1 Softsoap Liquid Hand Soap Plus Lotion printable (preclipped)
NET PRICE FOR ALL: $0.75 (25 cents each)!
Note – The bottle shape changed, which immediately made me suspicious. Sure enough, the 10-oz premium soaps are now 8-oz premium soaps. Still, you can’t beat $0.25 per bottle, 8 oz or 10 oz.
