I had a nice little Winn-Dixie trip today. There were some things that I needed pretty badly (coffee creamer, mayo and coconut milk), so I’m happy with 74.3% savings on this trip, even though it’s a little lower than most of grocery shopping trips. I realize that there’s a much better deal on Silk at Target, but I was short of my $40 to use my $5 off total purchase coupon and I really didn’t feel like making a special trip to Target this week anyways.
That $5 off $40 total purchase coupon was from completing the survey that prints at the bottom of any Winn-Dixie trip. You can even buy a single banana and you will get offered the survey on your receipt. Upon completion of the brief survey, you are given a link to print a $5 off $40 purchase Winn-Dixie coupon.
This trip was a little bit interesting. My cashier told me they are no longer accepting printable coupons. I had her call a manager to confirm this, and he said they are manually taking a peek at the printable coupons presented before deciding whether or not to accept them. He said his store had $1700 in losses last month from photocopied and/or fake printable coupons. Wow.
Anyways, they accepted all of my coupons, but the printables wouldn’t scan automatically. All of them were manually keyed in at the register. What drama! 😉
Also, keep in mind that many Winn-Dixie stores do not accept coupons on the free item in a BOGO sale. This store did not object. Also, some stores may allow multiples of competitor coupons; I chose not to try it.
