Publix is having a major sale right now in preparation for Easter.
See all this food? I got it for over 50% off the regular price!
How? Sales. Coupons. And a little planning.
5 Reasons to Coupon at Publix
- The BOGO Sales. Every week there are an abundance of buy one get one free deals (otherwise known as half off). You don’t have to buy two of the item to get the sale price, if you buy only one it rings up at 50% of the regular price, so you can buy two, or one, or eight like I did.
- Stacking Coupons. Publix will accept one manufacturer’s coupon AND one store coupon for one item. Example. I bought a package of Flatout Flatbread on BOGO at $2.99 ($1.49 each) and I used a Publix coupon for $1 off and a manufacturer’s coupon for $0.50 off. My flatbread was FREE.
- Competitor Coupons. Publix accepts store coupons from their competitors, the list of competitors varies from store to store. My Publix accepts Whole Foods, Target, and Kroger coupons.
- Additional Flyers. I’m not sure of the frequency or schedules, but Publix releases extra flyers and coupon books frequently giving additional opportunities to collect store coupons. The coupon books usually need to be requested from the customer service desk but the flyers are often delivered in the newspaper or are available at a kiosk at the entrance to the store. I use Southern Savers to find out about all of the available booklets and flyers that are currently running.
- Double Coupons. Publix doubles coupons up to $0.50.
On my latest trip to Publix we stocked up on pasta, sugar, Special K snacks, cereal, drink mixes, and so much more!
Here’s my coupon transactions.
And my savings.
By the numbers:
Coupon Savings. $31.70
Sale Savings. $67.62
Mobile rebates Cashed in. $4
I also bought 3 gallons of full-priced organic milk, because we go through milk around here like a litter of kittens!
Ike made every attempt to take down my display of groceries. He can climb on the kitchen chairs now, and also the table. So he’s super fun now.
