I forgot to write about this Winn-Dixie trip a few days ago, but since these were markdown deals it’s not like you can copycat them. The main reason why I am writing this up is to alert you that there may be nice deals at your store if you can catch items marked down that are already nice sale prices.
A little note – If a marked down item is BOGO, watch carefully when your coupons are deducted. The register tried a little trickery with us. First, when it applied a markdown coupon to the full price item in the BOGO sale, it then switched that item to the free item and adjusted the deduction for the free item to negate the coupon. Then when the second coupon was applied, it switched again, cheating us out of the second $3 markdown coupon too. Our manager had to manually adjust things so that we still got the discounts.
All the other coupons came off exactly as we were expecting.
I used a $5 off $40 Winn-Dixie total purchase coupon. To get one of these coupons, buy anything at Winn-Dixie (even just a single banana.) Your receipt will give you information about a brief online survey you can take about your shopping experience. After you complete the survey, you will be offered a $5 off $40 printable coupon.
Our extra $5 of savings from the total purchase coupon are reflected in the final stats for this trip.
