Publix 8/11 - Publix Savings $149 or 77%

I didn't make it to Publix for my usual Monday trip, but we had great fun at the store on Tuesday!

Free and Ultra Cheap

16 lb. bag Purina Cat Food, $10.99 on sale - $3 MQ = $7.99 - $12 rebate = FREE plus $4.01 Money Maker
(I took my kitten to the vet last week for shots and found a fantastic rebate from Purina for $12 rebate when you buy 12 lbs or larger bag of cat food. Funny that it didn't say "up to $12". So, I am sending it in, and hope to get the $12 rebate. You just never know when great deals will pop out at you.)

4 Candy Bars, 89c each - 2 BOGO Target Coupons - 2 x $1/2 MQs = FREE plus overage

2 gallons milk, $2 each - FREE milk WYB $100 groceries. The register took off $4 for each of these, so FREE plus $4 overage!

1 half-gallon chocolate milk, $2.49 - FREE chocolate milk WYB white gallon. The register took off $3.75, so FREE plus $1.26 overage

2 x Lipton Tea 16 ct., $1.09 - 50c Q, doubled = 9c each

3 x Crest Toothpaste, $1.89 - $1 Publix Q - 50c MQ, doubled = Free plus overage
(The Publix Q is from a "Live Well, Feel Beautiful P&G booklet, which came out earlier this year and has no expiration date. The register didn't recognize the LU#, but the cashier keyed it in manually.) = FREE plus overage

Sundown Vitamin Deal
** There is a potential big money maker here. However, instead of focusing on getting the most overage by buying the cheapest Sundown products, I chose to focus on the things our family will most use.

2 x Sundown Saw Palmetto, $5.39 each - $6/2 Publix Q - $5/2 Manufacturer Q = Free plus a small amount of overage. (My overage doesn't cover the tax I will pay, but this product is something my husband uses, so I like getting it for free!!)

2 x Sundown Calcium/Magnesium/Zinc, $3.89 - $6/2 Publix Q - $3/2 Manufacturer's Q = FREE plus a little overage

2 x Sundown Vitamin D, $2.99 each $2.99 each - $6/2 Publix Q - $3/2 Manufacturer's Q = FREE plus a little overage. Free plus $3.02 overage. The vitamin D is the least expensive Sundown product that I found at my store.

  1. are you going to do a rebate for the cheese?, you probably already did one.
    Good Shopping!, wish my stores around here doubled!

  2. Hi Mo,
    I sent in the Kraft Rebate where you buy 4 different Kraft items plus $50 groceries in Publix. Is there a different rebate? This receipt has gone to Purina for the $12 cat food rebate, but I'm always buying cheese, so if there is another deal, I'm all ears!

  3. The one I was thinking about is here:http://brands.kraftfoods.com/purekraft/naturalcheese/pdfs/RefundOfferForm.pdf I found a blog, where she has a whole bunch of refund forms, you should check it out, theres alot! http://couponsdealsandmore.com/printable-refunds-rebates/


  4. There is a satisfaction guarantee on the 2% Kraft cheese floating around the internet somewhere.

  5. Thanks girls for the Kraft info. I buy this cheese so much, I'm sure to send in the rebate on of these weeks. A rebate on every receipt I say!

  6. Great shop! I'm thrilled for you that you found cheap vitamins.!! They are nowhere to be found in my area. Everyone has bought them all up! :) I may have to hit a different Publix I don't normally shop at to see if I can find some.

  7. You did fantastic! I also live in North Metro Atlanta and was wondering which Publix you go to, and do you have a hard time with coupons? I go the publix close to the Mall of GA and they give me a hard time a lot. I was really thinking of changing grocery stores.

  8. Hi Mary, I shop at an Alpharetta Publix. I do suggest you check with the different Publix stores in your area. They really do vary widely on their competitor coupon policies. It's up to each individual store manager. Good luck.

  9. Where did you find the milk coupons????

  10. Hi Tina,
    These were available on Coupons.com for a while. To my understanding they all expired on the 13th.
