Publix 4/12 (Maureen) – $1.50 Profit on $135.26 in Merchandise (101.1% Saved)

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

I had a great trip to Publix today.  Publix has a promotion to get a $10 Publix gift card when you spend $30 on qualifying P&G products.  I bought the Pantene because we have a matching Publix coupon in the current purple flyer, the Pantene products qualify for the Publix Stocking Spree Rebate program, and we have high-value manufacturer coupons from the 4/1 P&G Brandsaver Sunday coupon booklet.

I wrote a post about the Publix Stocking Spree Rebate program HERE.  Basically, you upload receipts for qualifying products and get a $10 Publix gift card every time you reach $50 (limit 12 per household per calendar year).  This equals 20% back on the sale price (coupons don’t count against you).  The Pantene and Heinz Ketchup qualify.

I also took advantage of a coupon in the current Target weekly ad to get a $5 gift card for spending $15 on household cleaning products.  I went to a Publix that accepts Target as a competitor in order to use this coupon.  Publix has a great sale right now for their “Spring Cleaning” promotion, and we have terrific printable coupons, so the combination was irresistible.  An extra $5 discount is factored into the final tally for the trip for the Target coupon.

I got a number of other great deals that you can see below.

As always, cashback offers vary (in kind and value) by account.  Some of the cashback offers I used may no longer be available to activate, and some of the printable coupons I used may no longer be available to print by the time you read this post.

Happy shopping!

I had $48.61 in Heinz and Pantene purchases (pre-coupon).  Both products qualify for the Publix Stocking Spree program to earn a $10 Publix gift card for every $50 spent on listed products, which is 20% back.  I will earn $9.72 of my next $10 Publix gift card from today’s purchases, so I am including an additional $9.72 discount in the final for the trip.

4/13 Update: Stocking Spree took off $10 from the Pantene purchase price because of the auto-deduction for spending $30 on qualifying products, so I got credit for $38.61, not $48.61 for the receipt.  I had $37 in Pantene going by shelf price, but the $10 autodeduction lowered the credit value for Stocking Spree to $27.   That means my extra deduction for the trip is $7.72, not $9.72.  I am adjusting the totals for the trip.
