Publix 12/21 (Maureen) – $5.86 PROFIT on $133.99 in Merchandise (104.4% Saved!)

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

I had a great day at Publix, which should (fingers crossed) be my last grocery trip before Christmas.  I went to two stores and used a $5/$40 Winn Dixie total-order coupon at each one.  Information about getting this coupon is on every Winn Dixie receipt.  $10 in additional discounts for these coupons are included in the final tally for these trips.  I also had twelve ibotta rebates, so I completed a monthly bonus and the Wrap Up Your Holiday bonus.  The $1 level bonus for redeeming ten rebates was entirely earned in this trip.  I needed 16 rebates for the $5 holiday bonus, so I am giving myself credit for $3.75 of the $5 earned in this trip.  Ergo, an extra $4.75 in ibotta bonuses is factored into the final.

Many of the Publix digital manufacturer’s coupons I used are probably no longer available, sadly.  Always clip them when Steve tells you about them, friends!

As always, cashback rebates vary (in kind and value) by account, so be sure to check your available offers before adding any deals to your shopping list.

  1. 16 !!!!! That’s all you needed for the $5.00 Holiday bonus? I’m really getting the ‘shaft’, because I needed 30 in order to achieve it. Dang. 🙁

    My coupon for the QUAKER MULTIGRAIN FLAKES CEREAL was only $4.49 (not the full price of $4.65).

    AWESOME trip !!! (as usual….LOL)

    MERRY CHRISTMAS !!!

    • It’s because I barely used ibotta from around October 20 to last week. They made so many changes after the introduction of iPhone X that my iPad Mini was no longer working to upload receipts (app crashed every time I took a picture with the in-app camera). I barely used ibotta for about a six-week stretch, and when I did want a rebate, I had to go through CS and request a courtesy review of my receipts. I didn’t even complete November Level 1. “Only” needing 16 rebates for the $5 bonus was a hook to get me to use the app more often. I broke down and bought an iPhone last week, so now I am able to use the app again.

      Very strange about your Quaker deduction. I just double-checked my receipt, and I did get $4.65 off. Not sure why you got stiffed.

      MERRY CHRISTMAS to you, too!
