Honestly, this wasn’t a great Publix ad week for us. Yeah… I know y’all are thinking, “I can’t believe that b**** is griping about their 95% savings”. What I mean is the ad itself didn’t really call my name. I found myself trying way too hard to get up a list for our Publix couponing trip on 8-22 with the start of that new ad. I had received a $5/$40 coupon in the paper and had my Penny item coupon and I was hoping to get the Amex gift card deal with the coupon from the Advantage Buy Flyer but it didn’t start off well…it wasn’t until shopping day that I really got my mojo back and knew that I could get to the purchase amounts required for those. I saw some great ideas with the Upromise and ibotta and stumbled across a couple other items and it started looking up! I also had a raincheck from last weeks sale on tea that I wanted to pick up. We did have some great trips to the drug stores and office stores too. We’ve gone ahead and linked them up at the bottom so I won’t talk about them here!
For my Publix shoppers out there, I highly recommend taking advantage of that discount in the purple Health-Beauty advantage flyer for the American Express gift card that we did on this Publix couponing trip on 8-22. If you haven’t really thought about, just think free money! You buy a $50 card that you will then use as cash on your next shopping trip(s) and it’s only costing you $44.95 so you’re making $5.05 swapping out money. I would do that all day long!
