My 6/1 Publix Trip – $126.31 for $30.35 or 76% Off

There was a $5/$30 Publix coupon in today's newspaper but I only get the Sunday paper so I bought one at the store and used the coupon.  I am planning to get a couple more coupons from a friend and my mom's paper because they don't expire until June 14th.  I'm kind of bummered with myself for spending $4.60 on eight hoagie rolls, but I got a great deal on the roast beef and now I'm hungry for French dips so I just couldn't help going “off list” today.  We couldn't survive without the childcare help that our parents give us, but they won't let us pay them or even give them gas money so I'm always happy when we can try to re-pay them with stuff – this week I'm hooking my dad up with some root beer!  Today I bought $126.31 worth of groceries for $30.35, or 76% off after coupons and $30 RR.  Here are the deals:

  1. 2 questions……
    You stated….John Frieda Hair Care, $5.49 each – $2 off
    -$2/1 John Frieda Products 6/5/2011 SS Insert (exp 7/31/2011) (I used this one)<~~~~ How could you USE this one if 6/5/2011 has NOT happened yet?
    And your reciept shows 3-$10.00 "vendor coupons" what were those for and where can we get such a high value vendor coupon?
    Thank You

  2. Hey Michelle – good catch! I meant to mark the other $2/1 coupon so I’m going to fix that next. Those three $10 “vendor coupons” are the $30 Register Rewards from Walgreens that I mentioned in the post. They’re actually manufacturer’s coupons and my Publix takes them like they’re cash as long as they scan. I happened to get those 3 this week on the Triple Absorb Calcium supplements that are a money maker at Walgreens 😉
