With things slowing down now that Christmas is nearly here, I decided to help fill the day with some posts to reminisce on coupon deals past. Isn’t that what the holidays are about…memories? Also, make sure you claim your FREE 3-pack of Olay Samples if you haven’t done so yet either. Finally, don’t forget about the FREE 8×10 Photo Enlargement ($3.99 value) at Walgreens.com through 12/25! Merry Christmas!
This is a pretty awesome Publix trip that was originally posted in December 2014. Publix had a massive clearance in personal care items and we had matching high-value coupons. Using a dollars off competitor coupon too, I managed to get everything for about $5…including that massive pork loin that was worth almost $35! The full original trip write up is below; obviously…all the coupons listed expired years ago. Enjoy!
I made a second trip to two Publix stores today, hoping they would have more Kraft Chunk Cheese after the truck arrived. Unfortunately, none came on the truck. However, we stumbled on a HUGE clearance in the health and beauty aisles.
We did one transaction at each store, using a $5 off $30 Winn-Dixie store coupon at both of them. We also did a gas card deal at the second store. Between the two Winn-Dixie coupons and the $10 gas card coupon, we saved an extra $20 beyond what is listed with the items below. Those savings are carried through to the bottom line stats for the trip.
