My 1/4 Publix Trip – $103.23 for $6.12 or 94% Off

Whoohoo!  I may have redeemed myself a little bit today 🙂  I’ve just started the Boost Your Budget Pantry Challenge for January, then I went and “blew” $30 of my $100 goal at CVS and Walgreens on Monday so I’ve REALLY got to tighten up for the rest of the month.  I actually wouldn’t have bought this much stuff today except I had a $5/$55 Winn Dixie catalina that I couldn’t stand to waste so I had to reach $55 (after sale prices but before coupons) in order to use it.  I always like to save my free item coupons for times like this when I need to hit a number, so I used two of my coveted free Hillshire Farm product qs on the lunch meat today.  I bought a $50 gas card so I could use the $10 off coupon, but I don’t think that would count toward the $55 “grocery purchase”.  I was also very happy to stock up on snacks for the kids to give them some variety since they were complaining on the way to school this morning about having the same snack as yesterday.  Today I bought $103.23 worth of groceries for $6.12, or 94% off after coupons, $5/$55 Winn Dixie catalina, and $17 Register Rewards.  Here are the deals:

  1. I am bit confused how you got all that. For 6.00. Even with the 5.00/55.00 and 17.00 in rr’s. Your lucky to your store takes rr’s and target coupons. Please explain. (added by Mobile using Mippin)

  2. I’ve used the $50 gas gift card towards my total for the $ off Publix and Winn Dixie coupons before and never had a problem doing it.

  3. Thanks so much Kim! I’ll definitely be doing that next time they have the gas card deal 🙂 You’re the best!

  4. If you take a look at my receipt at the bottom of the post you’ll see that I used $58.47 worth of coupons (that includes the RR, catalina and $10 off gas card coupon), plus $38.64 in sale price savings – that equals $97.11 in savings 🙂 This was certainly one of my better trips! Wish every week could be like that 😉

  5. Awesome trip!!!! You’re right – would be nice if every week was like that!!!

  6. You will need to check with your local store to see which competitors they take. Usually the “competitor” has to be within 5 miles of the store. A couple of the stores here will take Target, and a couple others take Winn Dixie, but not all of them do because of where they are.

    Also, check with your local manager about applying the Gas Card toward your $55 total. Plus, some of the coupons I have seen specifically exclude Gift Cards. The Manager can often OK things like this, but the cashier cannot.

  7. Great Job!!! I was not aware that Publix took Catalinia’s …is this all stores???

  8. As far as I’m aware all Publix stores take competitor coupons, usually stores within a few miles of their location. Check at the customer service desk of your favorite store to see who is considered a competitor. Winn Dixie is considered a competitor by my store so they take their Catalinas 🙂

  9. Great tips Kimberly! Thanks SO much 🙂

  10. Wow that was a nice haul! I wish our store took rr!!! I forgot all about the gas card this week oh poo, well there are other times! Awesome blog btw! WTG!

  11. Thanks Emmie! I LOVE Publix and I do feel lucky that my store takes RR. I was actually wishing I had done the gas card deal twice (I bought enough groceries to do that) but I’m hoping the deal comes back around quickly instead 😉
