Best part of Monday! Thanks Michelle!
Thanks, Michelle. Always excited to see your Monday morning list.
Good Morning, Michelle! Thanks for doing this for all of us!
Thanks. It looks like a slow week for me. – Anyone tried the InnovAsian meals?
Yes they are super sweet and very skimpy. I would not buy them again!
I love the Innovasions meals. They are so easy to make. There are only 2 of us, so it is plenty of food + leftovers. I’m definitely planning to stock up during this sale.
Yes… The S&S and the Gen Tso’s… Be aware that there is only 10oz of actual meat. The rest (8oz) is sauce. Chicken is smaller pieces and very crispy, but with sauce on it, works out good. The other thing, is its not very clear if this is raw or precooked chicken as it doesnt state either way. To me, cooking time would suggest raw.
I had the General Tso’s last night for the first time. I was impressed with the meat. It does not look like much but with rice it will serve two people adequately. The sauce was just soy sauce, I was disappointed. I tried jar sweet and sour (la Choy Yuk, Lings Yum.). Worked out well. I also lightly microwave the chicken and then broiled it so it would be lightly crunchy.
The beef and broccoli is delicious. 3 main ingredients: beef, broccoli, and sauce. Easy to cook. I also will be stocking up.
Thanks everyone for the feedback – for the price I will give it a try.
Could you use the $10 off (2) boxes Stocking Spree Publix coupon with the in-ad coupon on the pampers diapers???
Just one Publix coup per item
They are both Publix coupons so I would say no. The better Q is the $10 off. I would use that one.
No, since they are both store coupons.
No because you have to use the publix in-ad coupon to get the deal. You would not be able to use two different store coupons on an item
No bc they are both Publix coupons….if it were an in ad deal you could but it isn’t
I would ask. I haven’t had a little one in diapers in awhile, but they used to tell me the in-ad Q was just a way of putting it on sale. I could still use my Publix Q and my manuf. Q
Thanks,some great deals this week )))
Hi michelle do know what kind of natures own bread is bogo.
For the dial body wash I want to make sure this is right.
Buy 6 at $3.15 BOGO
Use $5/$15 from the health/beauty flier
Use 3 $2/2 from the inserts
Thank you for figuring the deal out. Woo hoo.
I believe you need to buy ten to make it $15.00.
Buy 6 bogo, not 6 individual bottles
You would need to do 5 BOGO deals-so 10 bottles-use (4) $2/2 MQ’s(limit 4 per shopping trip) and (1) $1/2 MQ, use the $5/15 PQ=$1.75 for all plus tax.
wouldnt it be by 5 bogo not 6?
I believe it is :
Buy 10 at $3.15 BOGO
Use $5/$15 from the health/beauty flier
Use 5 $2/2 from the inserts
$.75 plus tax
Lets see ===
if u buy 10 then that is over 30$–u could use a 5 off of 30 W/D then use 2 5off of 15 health & beauty then the man Q===for a killer deal==
someone chk my work
am still on the summer sch and just know seeing this??
Use (4) $2/2 (limit 4 per transaction)
USE (2) $1/1 printables
I don’t understand this deal. If you buy 6, it would be $9.45 and the health/beauty flier coupon is save $5 when you spend $15. You would need to buy 10:
then use 5 of the $2/2
10.75-10.00 = final cost of .75 for 10 body washes.
Can someone clarify?
that’s the math I came up with. I think a lot of confusion occurs with half price BOGO vs true bogo on the number you need to purchase. but someone noted that the $2/2 coupon had a limit of 4, so you would need to use two of the $1/1 printables from last week as well.
I think you would have to buy 10 bottles of body wash – you would pay for 5 with BOGO.
$3.15(5) = $15.75
- $5 off $15 = 10.75
- 5 $2/2 = .75 for 10 bottles
Is this right?
The MQ’s are “limit 4 like coupons per shopping trip”, so you could not use 4 in the same transaction-you could use a $1/2 MQ to make them $1.75 for the 10 bottles.
Yep…looks right to me!
Oops…nevermind, you would need to buy 10 to make your total at least $15, so not a MM, but still a pretty good deal. That is, IF you are able to find that many on the shelf!
Not a moneymaker-see my post below.
Correction-see my post above.
you can only use 4 $2/2 but you can use 2 -1/1 printable to get to .75 plus tax.
You are right!
I think it’s like this:
Buy 5 bogo sets at $3.15 ($15.75)
Use $5/$15 from the health/beauty flier ($10.75)
Use 5 $2/2 from the inserts ($.75 for 10 bottles)
You can’t count the free item towards the $15 but you can use 1 $2/2 per set.
I don’t think that’s right. 6 x 3.15 = 18.90. 18.90-5=13.90 -6=7.90. Not a moneymaker if you do it that way. You could buy 5 (which would be 10 bc of BOGO) and would be $15.75. Use one $5/15 and make it 10.75. Then use five $2/2 coupons making the total .75. Anyone else think that is right??
Ok. I see everyone else beat me to it! But even with the “4 like coupons” and the $1/2 coupon, its an AWESOME deal!
but you can only use 4 of the 2.00/2 coupons in the same transaction. so it would be a bit more, but still a great deal if you can find that many on shelf. Is there a limit to how many you can buy?
My store has a limit of 10 on bogo items, 5 deals/10 items per person
Just to let anyone in the charleston, sc area and surrounding know. The dial is 3.99 a bottle so no deal here. For eight bottles at 3.99 bogo using 4 $2/2 mq and $5/$15 pq comes out to 2.88 for eight bottles or .36 each. Still a good deal but I’m stocked up from the last sale. So I will pass.
It is $3.99 in Nashville too
My store has a limit of TWO bogo items per person. Meanieheads
Where do you find the health/beauty flyer??
do we know if the natures own bread is any of their breads. We like the butterbread and love to stock up and freeze when on sale.
Thank you…. u always make my monday!!!
Thank you Michelle! Something seems to be missing from the Garnier- is there a price or discount on it?
There were Quaker coupons in the Quaker granola bars I purchased a while back, including $1/1 box of Quaker Oatmeal squares..Expire 12/31/2013…
I had wondered about that—last week bought the bars and did not have anything in the box
all of us love any kind of Quaker product
do u remember or does anyone know??? what flavor or what size box u purchassed ===love to find those awesome Q inside!!
Not sure which boxes they were in..I gave them away…I have 3 of the coupons you are welcome to…do you have any organic coupons to trade for these? I see Michelle has a link to the Honest Kids -$0.50/1 Honest Kids Product. There are coupons in that link for Annie’s Organic Snacks and Organic Valley Milk. Are you a member of the forum?
i bought a bunch of granola bars and found the Qs in *i THINK* the lowfat chocolate chip 90 cal bars. Im like 89% sure lol.
I was in publix Saturday and had a coupon for $2 off chicken with the purchase of 5 Knorr sides. I assumed the $2 would apply to chicken and then had other coupons off the Knorr sides. I have done similar scenarios to this in past and always accepted. This time they refused and said could only use the two dollar off chicken or the coupons off sides not both. All were MQ. Doesm’t seem quite right. What do you think? Thank you
The $2 off chicken with the purchase of 5 Knorr sides attaches to the chicken and the 5 Knorr sides-no other MQ’s may be used with it.
If any stores accepted them that way, they likely did not get reimbursed for them. Which may account for why they aren’t accepting them that way anymore. It’s like using two coupons for one item. You can’t do it. They are correct.
But if you had a competitors Q for the Knorr it would have worked! Target had 1 but not sure if still available. It’s because in order to get the $2 off chicken you MUST buy the Knorr’s.
There is also a Target $1 off 2 quaker cereals on the Target site.
Hi Michelle. There is a $2.00 any Miralax 14 dose or higher in the 8-11 Smart Source. Thank you for all that you do!
18th WOOOOO HOOOOO!!!!! Thanks for your hard work!!!!
made me laugh!!!!
very much appreciated!
How do you find coupons on the coupon book website? I was trying to find the Pepperidge Farm bread coupon per the link above but all I see are two coupons at this website.
lol…took me forever to find it… on the q’s listed onhe front page, go to side of pic, there is a scroll arrow that pops up…had tole printing my q’s …good luck…
I dont think you could use this coupon for the swirl bread. It says rolls, or frozen. I was wondering why she had that coupon for that product listed.
You’re right – cannot be used for the swirl bread. But I’ll buy it anyway – my husband loves it.
Thanks! I’ve looked for coupons on that website for two weeks. Would have never figured it out by myself.
Yay! Found some $2/2 Any Brawny coupons on a clipping site, so Free paper towels!
oh lord===which one—did not know those existed==ty
Search for Manufacturers Coupons clipping site on google, they are out of Washington state
Michelle, I found it. It’s manufacturerscoupons.net. But they are out of stock on the Brawny paper towels coupons. I couldn’t even order one.
Thanks Pat. What Clipping Site did you find the $2 Brawny Q’s??
I got mine from couponfleamarket.com but I think they are all gone now.
Slow week for me…. I shall keep some $ in my pocket this week!
Love those Finagle Bagels.
There’s a $0.50/1 Classico Target IP coupon available.
Johne had posted in the forum Saturday regarding the Kroger GM in ad coupon. Looks like a MM on the GM cereal for those who have Kroger as a comp and if your store will allow this particular coupon.
Buy (4) GM Original Cherrios $1.89 each= $7.58
Use (4) 50c/1 mq
(1) $6/4 GM Kroger in-ad coupon
Total $2.42 MM if your store doubles
For those whose store does not double, use (2) $1/2 mg along with the Kroger coupon (if your store allows) for a 42c MM.
Same difference using (4) of the 50c/1 for those whose stores do not double…42c MM.
Scratch this deal..Saw Johne’s recent post in forum that the size doesn’t match using the Kroger coupon.
On my Kroger coupon, the specified size is a larger box than what is going to be on sale at Publix. So I’m not sure its a match.
Nope-the sizes do not match. The Kroger Q is for 16.2-21.6 oz.
Thanks Johne…Should have checked your update on the forum first, your always right on target when it comes to match-ups.
There was a $1/1 suave deodorant on makinglifebetter.com last week. Not sure if they’re still there
Wrong size though. This one is for the full size.
Wendyc, the Suave that will be BOGO is 2.6 oz, the coupon I just printed says any full size(excludes 1.4oz invisible solids, trial and travel sizes)
Thanks, Melinda, for sending the coupon link, and Deenie for the clarification. The coupon’s still printing – I just got 2 – yea!
thank you, Melinda
just printed mine so they are still available….I was going to post it but you beat me to it
It was thank you.
Yes, it’s still there….$1/1 full size suave deo
Also a $1/4 knot pasta sides
You have to register
Where can i find the Make their School Day Great Booklet? I cannot seem to find that one, and I did not get this at publix. Has anyone tried the Home Run Inn Pizzas? Hopefully there is plenty brawny paper towels ordered for my publix. The wisk detergent deal was gone fast because not many ordered.
The Home run in Pizzas are Awesome.. I was hoping they would go Bogo…
Stock up time for me.
We have had them. they are very respectable frozen pizzas. And at this price with coupon, they are GREAT! We have tried a couple varieties but LOVE the spicy sausage with jalepenos on it. It is HOT though.
They are pretty bad but my kids will eat them. They are really thin and just taste cheap.
Thanks for the ad matchups I look forward to them every Monday
I sure hope that the K-cups will be on sale for $5.99 at my Publix. It seems they are always $6.99 in Central Florida.
Here in Central Florida the last BOGO sale had the Dial priced at $3.83. I’m having a bit of trouble figuring out the best scenario. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance!
you have to buy 8 total use 4 manu coups==$8 I publix $5 your total is $15.42 – $13.00 $2.42 for 8 dials
Thanks that’s What I was thinking about doing.
Buy 8 bottles @ $3.83 x 4 = 15.32
Use 1 $5.00 Publix Coupon -$5.00
Use 4 $2/2 Coupons -$8.00
= $2.32 total for 8 bottles
Yay! Glad to see this week’s sales. It’s been several slow weeks for me.
I am thrilled for the Peanut Butter cookie mix (Krusteaz Bakery Style Cookie Mix, 15.5 to 18 oz, BOGO $2.39) There is a recipe that is super easy on the side of the box for Peanut Butter & Chocolate Bars. These bars have turned into a family favorite. I make them for the Grandkids to pack in the school lunches. Simple, easy and sooo good. Stck up price for me!!! Thanks Michelle
They changed the coupon policy at my publix. They only take one 5/30 winn dixie coupon per person per day…anybody else run into this? I live in west palm beach Florida.
I live on the Treasure Coast and we can use 1 WD Q per transaction, but they do not limit how many transactions you do.
They did that to us, too, Victor! For, about a week, it was 2, $5/$30 WD qs per customer per day. Then, they changed it to one about a month ago! Two was fine with me b/c I never used more than that, but one just plain sucks . . . or it will when the ads get better I’m in central Alabama (Prattville, AL store).
hey victor! I live in Boynton beach… just wondering when did they change?
They said a week ago
I live in West Palm also and I guess it depends on what store you shop at!! I shop at different ones theres a Publix on every corner here!! LOL, But there was a store south of here that was hit by a lady with a couple thousand dollars of fake coupons and got away with it so they are starting to be a little tighter in the area. because people cant shop in moderation they must be greedy everyone will suffer in the long run!
yep here in pcola they allow us to use several but now the orders have to be 30 or more each for one coupon
This was changed several months ago. Google Publix coupon policy and pull up their official page and you’ll read it there. HTH!
i shop at the publix in lake park and i was able to use 2 in one transaction. my total was like $61. this was just the other day i did this
If anyone is signed up for the Talenti emails, they sent a coupon not long ago for $1 off their new gelato bars.
Target has a $1/2 Any Quaker Items!
Here’s the link.http://coupons.target.com/printable-coupon/yvxqok?ref=search.
Thanks again Michelle for making Mondays great. Just wanted to let everyone not to forget to use the Right Guard with the Dial Body Wash deal especially if your store takes Target has comepetitor.
Buy 8 Dial Body Wash @ $1.58 eacg =12.64
Buy 1 Right Guard Extreme deodarant @ 2.93 each. Total is 15.57.
Use 4 $2 if 2 Dial coupons= $8, 1 $2 Right Guard MQ plus 1 $2 Target coupon then finally add in the $5 of 15 Publix Q = $17 for a moneymaker of $1.43.
All these prices are at my store in north Alabama.
If your store takes food lion coupons there was a $1.25 off stouffers and $1 off 2 Quaker products in the RP from Sunday 8/11.
you cannot toss the tq in there. the PQ covers the purchase of those items up to $15.oo
I still have my free Talenti coupon from a while ago, so two boxes of Talenti pops free!
There is a $1 off Orville redenbacher popcorn in 8/11 RP also if your store takes food lion coupons
what is the price for Garnier Fructis Hair Care, 13 oz?
I’m in Lake Worth and can only use one 5/30 WD per transaction but there’s no limit on how many per transactions per day.
I love Monday’s! Thank you,Michelle.
Is the Crest Rinse $1.00 Q in the Stocking Up booklet a match for the Crest Rinse that is on sale this week?
Does anyone know how much hunts pudding snack 4 packs are.
$1 at my store in st cloud, fl
The Mrs. Butterworth Facebook coupon is not printing. Anyone else having trouble with this Q?
I got it to print once… not twice. I read where some did get two prints. Go figure! ???
You have to use two computers.
I got three prints per computer . . . so odd . . .
I have tried Internet Explorer 3 times and the Ipad it won’t on either device. Which internet app are you using? I have verified that Java is installed on the PC as well. Thanks for your help.
There is a quaker back to school adventure coupon
$1/2 quaker products…..
all you have to do is enter two upc codes such as UPC Codes 3000031570, 3000026872 For Sweepstakes…..
I’m confused, is the v8 coupon a typo…it says 16 ounces or less in the info
I hav e(2) Publix Baby club coupons for$1.50/any 8 jars of Beech-Nut 2nd foods, 2.5 – 4oz jars. Combine those with (2) $1/any 3 MQ and I think I should have a .28 MM on 16jars (hopefully sizes all match up!). Just wanted to let everyone know to check their Baby Club Coupons!
Guess I could pair that with another coupon, $1/10 jars, for the last ten jars… making it a $1.28 MM. I hope my math is correct because baby food is rather expensive!
I never paid for baby food when my little one was at that stage, thanks to Publix!!! Yes, all your sizes and coupons should match up. I did it many times and it was wonderful! Are you a member of Winn-Dixie’s baby club? They usually have baby food coupons, too and I used them at Publix during this sale.
I didn’t even know there WAS a winn-dixie baby! club! Thanks so much will sign up and save more
I went to the link for the coupon, but there was not one for this particular soup and size and also no $.75/2 at all for any others. However, there is a coupon for their condensed soups. Would this one be accepted for the one on sale? Thanks in advance.
Campbell’s Homestyle Soup, 18.6 to 18.8 oz, BOGO $2.49
-$0.75/2 Campbell’s Homestyle Soups
Thank you for Helping me with the next coupon list and saving money.
Price on tyson any’tizers?
“Ocean Spray 100% Juice, 60 oz, BOGO $3.15 – $3.87
-$1/1 Ocean Spray 100% Citrus Juice, any 64 oz (limit one coupon per transaction) (DND5) – 06-02-13 RP Insert (exp 8/31/2013) (if included)”
Ad (Birmingham AL) reads:
“Ocean Spray 100% Cranberry Juice Blend ….. Buy 1 Get 1 Free ….. Selected Varieties, 60 oz bot. (Excluding 100% Grapefruit Juice, Grapefruit or Cranberry Juice Cocktails, and Diet & Light Juices, 60-oz. bot.) SAVE UP TO $3.99″
Unfortunately, the words “Cranberry” and “Blend” are missing from the I Heart Publix listing. It appears that the coupon doesn’t match to what’s on sale. Someone please correct me if I’m wrong, but I don’t believe that “Cranberry” is considered “Citrus”. Also, the bottle size between what’s on sale and the coupon don’t match.
or…”Hey Michelle the Ocean Spray coupon is not a match”
then Michelle responds…”Thanks I got it removed- Have a great day”
Edited: I added the coupon back to the matchups -per Happy:
Ocean Spray “Citrus Mango Pineapple” & “Citrus Tangerine Orange” included in bogo $3.15″
LMAO! Appreciate you, Girl! And YAY for the citrus tangerine orange–I’m eager to try it and at $1 a bottle, I’m in!
Oh, because mine is priced $3.99

Does anyone know where I can find the health and beauty flyer that contains the 5/$15 dial order. The only booklet I can find is the one that starts on 8/17?
Nevermind. I found it in the purple booklet.
I have a question. Other than the publix coupon, where are the $1 off 2 Suave coupons located?
no longer available online
but there is a 3 of $10 target coupon im going to attempt , we’ll see!
is there a limit on the GC 10/50??? How many can I get in 1 transaction and how many can i get total (if i do separate transactions)?? Also, the Winn Dixie 5/30 can I use more than 1 in a transaction if I buy $60 worth or $90 worth? I am just trying to plan my trip and I want to be 100% sure before I hit the store tomorrow. Thanks!
On the 5/30 Winn Dixie coupons, some stores only let you use one, some let you split your order in to multiple transactions, and others will let you use all in one, it depends on the store
ok heads up guys, in last Sundays paper, the Kroger Flyer for once in a huge while had a whole page of printed coupons to match allot of their digital ones !!
Check these coupons for this sale, ek-specially the 6 dollars off four GM cereals )))
Oh BTW has anyone else noticed that their 7/14 SS flyers are WAY OFF compared to Michell’s? mine either are missing coupons or the valuse are way less, like for instance my viva coupon is 25c not $1. AND I LIVE ONE TOWN AWAY!
This morning I went to a Publix near where I work to get the Dial body wash deal. They posted a sign stating ONLY 2 DIAL DEALS PER CUSTOMER. Did any one else run into this issue?
No – I bought mine this morning on my way to work and I got 8 – no problem.
Has anyone run into the issue where your Publix (that is normally good with coupons) has all of the sudden began to stop allowing you to use more than one coupon if it says “limit one coupon per purchase”? (it DID NOT say on per transaction) I was in Publix trying to do the Windex Touch Up deal with the free electronics cleaning product and bought 2 Windex Touch Ups, and used 1 manuf coupon for each touch up. They refused to accept the second coupon stating that it is one per purchase…but I told them I was buying 2, hence the two coupons, they would not budge on this even after the customer service manager came over. So I told them to take it off of my bill as I was not going to purchase it. Then I bought 6 Quilted Northern toilet papers from the BOGO sale and used 6 manuf coupons (from inserts, not printables) and they would only accept 5 coupons from the same brand! They said that the store manager posted these policies, but nowhere is it stated in their store that these are new changes. Why would they limit only 5 coupons PER BRAND to be used? They were all from inserts not printables where I can see that maybe they thought that they were fradulent. He said that they “lose credit” for those coupons????? HOW??? They are actual manuf coupons from the newspaper inserts!
As for the “limit one coupon per purchase” I asked if I could do a separate transaction and they said NO since I was the same customer they would not accept it. Also, even if they allowed me to do that, it would not work on BOGO items (I live in FL with true BOGO).
I am frustrated a bit because I take the time to read their coupon policy at this store and it annoys me that depending on which day you go there, they play by a different set of rules. I NEVER clear a shelf or buy hoards of one item. In fact, buying 6 toilet paper from Publix is the most of one item that I have ever purchased there! I usually only buy 2 or 4 of the same when they are BOGO. I feel as if I will not be able to save as much money if they keep these new rules.
Do you all think that it is worth writing a letter to corporate about or is this something that I will have to deal with as a result of others possibly using fraudulent coupons or clearing shelves or whatever it is that annoys them with coupons. The way that they were speaking to me about this almost made me feel as if I was a criminal or as if I were doing something wrong because I was using a few coupons. I should also mention that this was on a trip were I did not even have a ton of coupons like I normally do.
Any advice/suggestions/comments are greatly appreciated as I feel like being childish and never shopping at that location again! LOL
Since no one has replied, you might want to take the comments to the forum. Just a suggestion.
Yes, I absolutely would take the time to write to corporate. Publix prides itself on a pleasure to shop at and am quite certain that corporate would be unhappy with how you were treated. I would also post on their fb page. I have had better luck with complaints/questions if I posted them publicly as opposed to emailing it. Hth and good luck!
JenJenJen, I think the reason they would not accept the coupons on the Northern TP is because the coupon stated limit 4 Q’s per transaction. The other issue about the windex sounds like an innocent mistake. If I were you I would just go back to the publix another day and request to speak to the Manager and verify their coupon policy. Just make sure you have a copy of Publix coupon policy found on their website and politely go over it with them. I think some Publix stores are being hit hard by over zealous couponers’ so the managers and cashiers are frustrated about how to handle us. Although Managers are obligated to follow the posted policy on their website and only have leeway to limit quantities from my understanding. If you still cannot get any resolution only then should you consider writing corporate, although posting something like that on Facebook I personally would advise against. That just doesn’t seem right. Just my opinion. I found that if I made a mistake with a coupon match-up at some Publix’s then they looked at everything extra careful, yeah, like I was a criminal. I hope that helps, i feel your grief.
Thank you everyone for your responses. I did send a letter to corporate and to the store and received a call from the store manager. He explained that they have had issues with “extreme couponers” at that store that are buying (no exaggeration) 50-60 of each sale item each week. So they wanted to make some changes. he also learned that 2 of them are re-selling the items at a local flea market. he admitted that he has had a lot of complaints this month and that his cashiers are all confused about what, who and how they are limiting the use of coupons. overall, I am glad that I wrote the letter as it brought to their attention the need for a consistent policy. He even offered to allow me to come back with the coupons that they would not accept and use them despite the sale no longer being in effect this week. He clarified what they were limiting and said that i did have the correct coupon match-ups. He will allow 5 BOGO items (10 in total), 10 items with coupons and one Winn Dixie coupon per order and he also said that I could do multiple transactions as long as it was not anything crazy like 100 of the same item.
Did anyone have a problem finding the brawny coupon?
I can’t find it either. I clicked the link, which took me to Red Plum, but Brawny Paper Towels wasn’t an option.
Can someone please let me know if the 3.00/1 visine coupon will work with the BOGO at publix this week?
If anyone else is wondering the anytizers that are BOGO at publix work with the tyson anytizers bad 1.00/1 coupon on their website. Atleast my clerk said it was okay.
The $3/1 Visine coupon did not match, but the $2/1 did.
Can you tell me how you used them because at my Publix the bogo is only on the original redness relief…?
i dont know if this is correc but the dial bodywash was 3.83 BOGO and on one instance i bought 4 dial bottles valued at 15.32 and i used 4 x 1.00/1 dial body wash coupon from fb and 1 5.00/15.00 worth. Total before tax comes to, (3.83 x 2) – [(1.00 x 4)(5.00 x 1) = -1.34 overage. What do you guys think?
I would think that it is incorrect. I’m not sure how your Publix does it, but at mine bogo deals mean each item rings up at half of regular retail price. If that’s the case, then no you would not meet the $15 mark necessary to use the $5/$15 q, if you only purchased (4) bottles. So, using the non-sale retail “value” price wouldn’t fly at my store.
JUST WENT TO MY LOCAL PLANT CITY WALDEN WOODS PUBLIX AND THEY ARE NOT ACCEPTING THE DIAL 5/$15 PUBLIX COUPON UNLESS TOTAL IS $15 AFTER MANUFACTURE COUPONS. HAS ANYONE ELSE HAD THIS PROBLEM?
I would definitely find a new publix to shop at! I reread the Q for $5 off and it DOES NOT say that! I am sorry that happened!
the 1/1 anytizers coupon wont work on the ones on sale with it? since it says “bag”. =(
I asked customer service before I purchase mine and brought up the bag/box issue and they told me as lon as it said anytizer they would take it. I was able to use the 8 coupons I had at the Lake Gibson publix in Lakeland.
I saw a lot of fellow couponers stocking up on what looked like vitamins? Maybe the NatureMade brand? Was there a deal on these that I over looked?
The NatureMade Vitamin Deal is basically free or inexpensive vitamins that help bring your total purchase price to the dollar amount, for instance the $5/$30 Winn Dixie:
Publix Green Adv Flyer $6/2 NatureMade Vitamins
Mft Q either $2/2 or (2)$1 NatureMade
So if you can find the vitamins that are under or around $4 it helps you reach your $30 mark. I mainly use this deal when I have a Publix $10 off $50 or the GC AmEx deal to reach the total of $80 ($50+$30)
I hope that helps.
Hope that helps
