    You could do the Vidal Sassoon® Shampoo. They are 2 for $5.00 and there is a $2.00/2 coupon, so you could get 10 bottles of shampoo which would be $25.00, use 5 $2.00/2 coupons which would make it $15.00, plus the $5.00 rebate…would be the shampoo $1.00 per bottle!

    • Jess says:

      My store had blinkies for this right in front today, but the shampoo smells a little questionable for me. Either 1/1 or 2/2, I didn’t bother to take any. Decent deal idea!

    • Susan says:

      That is a Proctor and gamble Product, usually they limit you to 4 like coupons!
      There are however BOGO coupons, and $2.00/1 MQs peelies too
      so you could purchase
      10 bottles, @ $25.00 use 4 $2.00/1 MQs and 3 BoGO Qs=comes out to $0.45 a bottle

    Hi, first off thank you for this Amazing blog.. It is a wonderful help for me :)
    There is a coupon in the “happy Easter” savings flyer for the totino’s pizza that will be on sale on Thursday (Wednesday for others) paired with the $.50 off 3 SS coupon OR the $1.10/5 cp printing from Betty Crocker site…. Is this really a good deal? How would I go about making it enough to qualify for rebate?
    Thanks again for all you do :0)

      Buy 25 pizzas = 25.00
      Use 6 x B3G1 = -6.00
      Use 5 x 1.10/5 = 5.50
      TOTAL = 13.50 (.54/pizza)
      After $5GC = 8.50 (.34/pizza)

      If you could actually buy 25 and are comfortable with it, might be good for someone that reeeeally likes these pizzas! :D It is BEFORE coupons for the $25, right?

    • Jennifer says:

      I just came across another rebate going on to possibly make the pizza deal a lot sweeter :)
      GO TO:
      Get $5 back when you purchase 4 specially marked pizza packages :)

      • Rena says:

        I was going to say this as well, and then in addition if you are using a 5/25 or 5/30 competitors (winn dixie, save a lot, dollar general) then this is a sweeeeeeeeeeet deal…..stock up!!!

        • On that online Totino’s rebate, is it only specially marked pizza boxes or is there a code that can be entered on every box? I dug to the back of the freezer and Publix AND Wal-Mart and COULD NOT FIND specially marked boxes :(

  4. Rebekah says:

    You could buy 3 jumbo packs of Pampers, on sale $8.99. Use (3) $1.50/1 printable coupons from Total before coupons: $26.97, after coupons & $5 rebate: $17.47, makes it $5.82 per jumbo pack.

  5. Nikki says:

    My list is:
    2 go gurt
    8 totion
    6 Pillsbury scramblers
    2 Vidal Sassoon
    18 items before coupons 27. 39
    After coupons 13.54 or .75 per item
    After gift card 8.54 or 47 cent per item

  6. debby340 says:

    Rebekah, there is a $2 Publix cpn on the running in running out sheet! That would bring your cost down to $3.82 a pack! I’m going to do this, thanks! And a BIG thanks to Michelle for all her hard work to help me save money!

  7. Angie says:

    I plan to do a combination of Totino’s pizza and YoPlait Gogurt this week…
    Totino’s x 12= $12
    Gogurt x 12= $13.84
    McCormick Gravy x 12= $6 (not part of rebate)
    Subtotal: $31.84
    -$5/30 Winn-Dixie
    - Totino’s B3G1 x 3= $3
    -Totino’s $0.50/3 doubled x 4= $4
    - gogurt $0.35/1 IP doubled x 6= $4.2
    -gogurt $1/2 insert x 3= $3
    -mccormick $0.50/2 IP doubled x 6= $6
    Total $6.64 plus tax, earn $5 gift card by mail

  8. Toni says:

    I would probably do this deal if the twisted yogurts are included since they are also an 8 ct box:

    (12) Go-Gurt Twisted Yogurts $14.34
    (3) Pillsbury Toaster Strudel $6
    (1) Pampers Cruisers $8.99
    (8) Maybelline Eyeliner $19.92

    Total before coupons $49.25
    Total Amount of Coupons used $47.75
    Total After coupons $1.50
    Total After coupons and Gift Card -$3.50 money maker

    Qs used: (12) $.50/1 Go-Gurt mqs (no doubles); (1) $.75/3 PB strudel mq; (1) B2G1 toaster strudel pq; (1) $2/1 pampers cruisers mq; (8) $2/1 Maybelline face mq;(8) $2/1 Maybelline PQ; (1) WD $5/$30

    • Toni says:

      Oops! My mq diaper coupon from inside the boxes are for the boxed diapers, but I’ll just use the $1.50/1 and it brings my total to $2.

  9. ALL Q'd Up says:

    Multi-grain Cheerios are BOGO starting with the new ad and I have a $1.00 IP that I got from somewhere, don’t remember where. That should help get the total up.

  10. Rose says:

    I’m going to do the Totino’s pizza. I’m going to buy 25 to reach the $25 requirement. I plan to use the Publix b3g1 stacked with the b3g1 manu peelies along with my $5/$25 whole foods q’s. It will cost me $10 for all at the register and I will get back the $5 rebate so technically I’ll be getting 25 pizzas for $5.00. I plan to do this deal 4 times and stock up my deep freeze for Spring Break! I have 3 teenage boys and my house is “the house” to be at every day which means I always have at least a dozen teenage boys here daily. You cant beat getting 100 pizzas for a total of $20.00 after q’s and rebate!!!
    The peelies are yellow with pic of pizza box and expire 10/15/13. I did not find these personally but traded with my facebook friend who said she found them at Walmart. I RARELY go to Walmart as I prefer Target but for those who do like Walmart I thought I’d give you a heads-up.
    Happy Shopping!

    • Rose says:

      ***UPDATE**** There is also a $5 rebate from Totinos pizza if you enter box codes online! This would bring the total down to FREE after q’s, Publix rebate and Tostino’s rebate!!!!

  11. Jennifer says:

    Thanks Jess for the scenario I appreciate all your help, I will be attempting this purchase on Thursday with a few other items! :) This will be my FIRST attempt at a publix “haul” so I’m pretty excited and anxious!
    I also wrote a blog post about shopping at publix because I shop there everyday

  12. Jennifer says:

    Where do I go about getting the $5/$25.00 coupons for Winn- Dixie, whole foods etc… Etc? I NEVER get those ads in mail or paper, is there a place to print them?

    • rachel says:

      I dont get them either and those stores are close by! It sucks!

      • Jennifer says:

        I used to get them on Wednesday in my mailbox for Winn-Dixie AND Albertsons… I don’t understand why I don’t get them anymore! I also “recycle bin dive” for coupons and was getting them from the recycle center but still not finding them…. SO LAME :(

    • Rena says:

      $5/$30 winndixie coupons from “Enjoy the city” book offer, you buy them in bulk and pay $125 for 75 books that have 4 coupons in each book, the offer is on this site every couple of month, scroll back a ways and you can find it, they expire dec/2013, I split this offer with a friend and end up paying .41 cents per coupon, but I can use them on any day of the week, unlike some that specify a certain day, dollar general $5/25 is usually fri or sat only, and if I need to get rid of some before expiration I just sell them for cost to other friends who shop at winn dixie, combined with all the bogos and coupons it really saves a lot of money ” I HEART PUBLIX’

    • amber says:

      if you like “enjoy the city” on facebook, they always run specials. especially for the ultimate florida or the ultimate alabama editions. they have $5/$30 to winn-dixie in them but i think most, if not all, publix’s will take them as a competitor coupon

  13. Nikki says:

    Was looking at my sales paper today and the totions are list 4 for $5

  14. Amber says:

    Jennifer you could buy the Winn dixie $5/$30 from Enjoy the I paid $2.50 for four $5/$30 ( x6/30/2013), I have some left if your interested in buying, email

  15. Rachel Marshall says:

    Does a BOGO item count toward the $25 total? It says $25 before coupons but I’m not sure how the BOGO items affect that?

    For example, if I buy two Cheerios that are $1 each and BOGO, is that $1 or $2 toward my $25? I’m in a “true BOGO” state.

  16. rachel says:

    Ok I am turning my brain to Jello trying to create a scenario!!

    • Jennifer says:

      LOL… ME TOO… I just found out the Publix I shop at everyday doesn’t even CARRY 25 frozen pizzas in stock… WTH? Now I have to rework my deal scenario to get $25 total to Qualify for mail in rebate :(

  17. amy says:


    TOTAL BEFORE Q: $25.58




  18. Jennifer says:

    SO EXCITED…. First publix haul was a SUCCESS… My mom was laughing at me because I was SHAKING like a leaf while the cashier was ringing out my order :) that was SUCH an ADRENALINE RUSH!!!

  19. AJ says:

    Do you have to actually spend $25 or can you spend just under? I just got back from shopping and I thought my store had a sign $3.99 by the Cheerios so I calculated that in only to find out the cereal was actually $3.59 so my total came to $24.63! Then I noticed the cashier charged me for an extra Totinos ($1) so I thought I was okay, only to notice that she voided the extra one. I actually wish she had left it :)

    • David says:

      Here’s what I did at the store today!

      6 Boxes of Cheerios (BOGO $3.99)-$1/2 Mfr.x3 and $1/3 GM Cereal (Target)x2
      1 Crest ($2)- .50 Mfr. and .55 Pblx. run in/run out
      2 Bottles Vidal Sassoon Shampoo (2.50 each)- $1 Mfr. x2
      6 Gogurt Yogurt (BOGO 2.39)-.75 Mfr. x 2

      Before Rebate is $15.47. After Rebate is $10.47 or 39 cents cost average per product! Woo-Hoo!

  20. amber says:

    can i do this more than once? i want to do 3 packs of diapers which would be $27 and then in a different trip i want some pizzas, cheerios, toaster strudels and toothpaste. can i submit two different forms?
