I am still waiting for the first fantastic Publix ad of 2017, but I got a few things with the new ad that started today. If you are planning to get the Flintstones vitamin moneymaker, please note that the $4/2 matching store coupon from the current purple flyer expires tomorrow, January 13, and the $3/1 manufacturer’s coupon expires Sunday, January 15. There is an alternate $4/2 Flintstones Publix coupon in the January Pharmacy Booklet, but the pharmacy coupon is limited to one deal per household (the purple flyer coupon does not have a household limit). So if your store is out of the $6.99 Flintstone gummy vitamins (the $3/1 MQ excludes the 60-count chewables), get a rain check and make sure you save the purple flyer coupons. Publix will accept expired coupons when redeeming a rain check if the coupons were valid on the day the rain check was written, so you have through Friday, January 13 to get a rain check that will enable you to use the $4/2 purple flyer coupon.
FYI – We are getting a new Publix coupon booklet, Game Day Favorites, soon. The coupons will be printable on Saturday, January 14 (Game Day Favorites Website). This is an annual booklet. Last year, this booklet contained a Publix coupon for $1.50/1 Cooked Perfect Meatballs, which are BOGO $7.99 this week. I am waiting until Saturday to see if a Cooked Perfect Meatball Publix coupon is in this year’s booklet. If it is, we will be able to stack a Publix coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon ($1.50/1 and $1/1 insert and $1/1 blinkies available) with the BOGO sale and score some cheap meatballs (how cheap will depend on the coupons).
My Publix accepts Winn Dixie coupons, so I used a $5/$40 total-order coupon, a courtesy coupon for completing a Winn Dixie shopping experience survey. Information about this coupon and how to get it is on every Winn Dixie receipt. The final tally includes this $5 discount.
