Ok…I had a couple of folks ask if I’d do a roundup of all the super cheap deals I have shared over the past few days to help prepare for the gas card deal at Publix.
If I did my math correctly (assuming you are buying two of the freebies plus a couple of cheapies) you should be able to get to the $50 purchase requirement and grab a TON of stuff for under $10. Add in that gas card coupon and everything will be FREE.
Also as a reminder you can see all the deals very easily here on the site. Head up to the top navigation bar and hover over PUBLIX DEALS. You can then quickly go to any ad/flyer you want to see and browse and create a shopping list as you go! Same goes for coupons…just hover over PRINTABLE COUPONS and print to your heart’s content
If you have more to add, leave them in the comments and I will try to get them added as I can.
I rarely buy Lucky Charms, my kids will be thrilled.
I wish my stores took target coupons:(
Also Yucatan Guacamole, reg. $2.99 — $3/1 coupon on their Facebook page.
There is a TRY ME FREE Rebate for the 8.4 oz. Colgate Total Mouthwash ‘Wintermint Rush’. Use the $2, $1.10 or $1 (any 8 oz. or larger) coupons. It’s free, a moneymaker and will cover the sales tax and cost of stamp.
Ok to my understanding, I need to reach a threshold of $50 in groceries to qualify for a $50 in gas card? Is this gas card free? Cause you mention after the gas card, $50 in groceries will be free. Need help understanding. If it’s free, then I really want in on this.
You get $10 off a $50 gas card WYB $50 in groceries (pre-coupon).
OIC. So I need to reach a $50 threshold in groceries and use the gas coupon found in the ad to get $10 off of $50 gas card. I think I got! Thanks a bunch for your response Jenna!
Another question: I don’t have to make certain purchase in order to qualify for a gas card? Just as long as I reach the threshold, right?
Oh I also forgot: I reach $50 in groceries before tax right?
yes to both of your ?s
Where is the gas card coupon? In the upcoming ad or current ad? Haven’t come across one yet. TIA!!
it is in the new ad starting 10/2 (10/3 for some)
Are you basing all your deal scenario’s on the Publix’s that **double** coupons? (because they do not double in Florida and it would be helpful if you could also post those deals).
In your spare time LOL
Thank you for everything you do !
I love numbers !
775 Publix stores in Fl
180 Pulix stores in GA
55 Publix stores in AL
48 Publix stores in SC
35 Publix stores in TN
More than half of the Publix locations dont double
coupons, so in my humble opinion it would make more
sense to post the deals without the double coupons option
because it really doesnt apply to those of us who shop
at the 775 publix stores in Florida.
Thank You Michele for all you do.
I am in Florida and, sure enough, there seems to be a Publix on every corner!!
I wish they would open some stores in Texas!
I appreciate Michelle’s scenarios! She is helping all of us whether we are in the “Land of Doubles” or in “True BOGO-land”.
FLA may have more stores, but if you calculate by population, you will find that there are plenty of people who live in the LOD. You can’t calculate by stores. A lot of the FLA stores are much smaller than the stores elsewhere.
Maybe IHEART PUBLIX is from a area that do double coupons. All you have to do is subtract the amount of the double and that’s the price you have to pay. If she not from Florida why should she have to do it for Florida because its more Publixs
One, Michelle lives in an area that does double. Two, she puts in a lot of work to create these deal scenarios. Three, it’s easy, after Michelle has put in all of the hard work to simply subtract for one’s own situation. I, for one, could never ask someone who does something for me for free to do more work for me that I can easliy do on my own.
If it is that big of a deal with the double vs no deals then just use the shopping list feature. It is set up for LOD and not LOD. I agree Kris…Michelle does ALOT of work, to help us save money, I would never ask her to do the list in two different formats. I can’t imagine how much time it takes her to do everything she already does.
Doesn’t double in gulf shores,al either but my stores takes dollar general and family dollar, fair trade.
And some of us in Florida don’t get double OR target as a competitor.
thanks Michelle! How helpful!
How are the Plum Organics Free? Are all 10? How do I do that?
They are free if you have 10 x $1 off printable coupons. Or, if your store takes Target coupons, you can use 8 x $1 off coupons and the $2/$10 Target one.
How do you print 10-$1off coupons? Thanks in advance!
$1/1 El Monterey® Supreme or All Natural Burritos/Chimis is under zip code 93907
TY very much Tasha
Another deal is buy (2) Kraft 4 pk Mac n Cheese Cups @ 2 x $2 = $4 and 2 Capri Sun Boxes $2.87 (my store in NW FL) for a total of $6.87 then used the attached peelies on the Kraft packages to save $2 off Capri Sun wyb one 4 pk for a total of $2.87 ($6.87 – $4 = $2.87) or $.71/$.72 per item.
The keyem hot dogs are super yum!
If your store doubles coupons, there’s a $.50/1 Clif Mojo coupon on the Mambo Sprouts web page. These are $.99 ea., so free with the coupon.
Thanks so much!!! The gas card is an awesome deal!!! Really no matter what you buy if you have some coupons you are going to save!!! If your store takes the Winn Dixie coupon, this plus the $10 gas coupon saves you an automatic 30% off your total – throw in some MQs and PQs and you save BIG!!!
You would only be able to add in the $5.00 off $30 Winn Dixie coupon, if you spent another $30.00 in grouceries. You cannot use it with the $50.00 you purchased in order to get the Gas Card deal.
At least that is my understanding………….
Yep. That’s correct. In order to use the Winn Dixie $5/30 with the $10/50 you have to buy $80 in Groceries to qualify. I think I’m sticking with the $50 total. Thanks everyone for posting the Great Deals to help reach the $50 mark! This should make a great deal with not much OOP $ and a $50 Gas Card to boot!! Sweet!! Thank also to Michelle for all the hard work! I don’t live in Doubles Land either but we get Great Health and Beauty Deals! :))
Also the fine print on the $10/50 found on the Publix Sale Paper states NO Alcohol, Tobacco, Lottery, etc.. Just so you guys know.
Recipe Makers are $3.49 near me.
Me too, I nashville tn they are 3.49.
Please explain how the gas card deal works.
You must purchase at least $50 in groceries. You then may purchase a $50 gas card for $40 using the $10 coupon. I always think of it as savings towards my groceries because I have to buy gas anyways. I almost always walk out with a $50 gas card and a bunch of groceries from $50-$65 with gas coupon, Winn Dixie coupon and any deals that are available like above. HTH
I have never done the gas deal and I am a little confused by different ones comments on here because they contradict
If I purchase $60.00 in groceries
can I buy the $50.00 gas card for $40.00
then can I use 2 save $5.00/$30.00 Winn Dixie coupons since my original grocery purchase was $60.00?
Thanks for your help!!
My Publix in FL only allows one $5/30 per transaction no matter what the total is. Also to qualify for the Gas Card deal you have to spend at least $50 in “Groceries” than you can “Buy” the $50 gas card and present the Q-pon for $10 off the $50 Gas card to receive the additional $10 off your purchase. I hope that helps.
My store allows me to use my $3/$30 purchase for every $30 I spend so I’ll be purchasing $60 in order to use two of my $3 off coupons + the $10 off the gas card (and I’ll be able to use my other coupons too). I generally verify with them every time I go in case the policy has changed.
Here are a couple more freebies:

-$1/1 Tums printable (https://www.tums.com/save-on-TUMS/coupon.html)
-$1/1 Tums (Target coupon) printable
is the Tums Target coupon not available anymore? Thank you.
There is another printable $.50/1 pampers wipes on pgeveryday.com
Also, the Pampers wipes coupon on coupons.com reset for me.
A few months ago, our Publix stores stopped taking the Winn Dixie $5 coupon along with the $10 deal. I haven’t tried again since then. Is anyone else able to still use the $5 coupon too?
You have to meet the purchase requirements of both coupons. So if you spend $80, you could use both. But to me it’s better to just spend $100, get 2 gas cards and use 2 $10 off coupon. I have to buy gas anyway.
Didnthey raise the price of the “big cup of noodles” it was $1/4 last week
Yes. Just bought 4 three hours ago and they’re now 2/$1.
I might use some of the Publix ecoupons that expire soon, too, like BOGO Gevalia coffee and Planters nuts.
The McCormick $2.00 coupon has reset on coupon.com (zip 66016). Can score cheap or free if you can find the gourmet envelopes. Also, Motrin/Motrin PM is a good deal for the 20 ct. Use $1 off MQ https://www.motrin.com/coupon or http://www.healthyessentials.com/printable-coupons and then use the $3 off 2 from the H&B flyer. That’s $2.50 off each bottle and I think they are about $3.29 for the 20 ct? I’m hoping to score cheap Schick razors too. We have the $4 MQ to pair with either the $3 off 1 TQ or the $5 off 2 PQ. These would get my total up quick. Beyond that, if you still have your $2 off snapware coupon it BOGO this week, so could probably score cheap. Oh, and V8 is super cheap too – use $1 off 2 printable MQ and $1 off 1 PQ (printable at publix.com). They’re on sale for 2/$5, so this makes them only a buck a bottle (normally $2.99). And, I’m defintely picking up the boneless chuck roast for $2.99/lb!
Another deal, I believe, if you’re shopping Saturday or Sunday are the Frusion Smoothies 4 pack. I think the price in the new AB flier is $2.50, use $1 Q and then submit for $2.50 rebate.
HOW DO I GET ALL OF MY ITEMS FREE IF I ADD THE $50 GAS CARD TO MY PURCHASES….I AM NOT GETTING IT??? THANKS IN ADVANCE
your not really getting all your items free because of the gas card – the items listed above are cheap/free items after coupons. purchase at least $50 in these items before coupons and pay very little oop and get the gas card for $40 instead of $50. So it’s like getting $50 worth of gas for $40
stop yelling pls
I apologize for yelling……lol. If its really that serious.
I just got back from Publix. The Domino sugar is $2.99 not $2. BUT it does go 2 for $4 quite often
Is there tax on baby food?
No tax on baby food in Florida.
I have a work up for the gas cards getting two gas cards and 100 in groceries for about $84 with everything.

This is $100 in groceries as well as has enough for the P&G deal. Also you can get 2 of the $50 gas cards for around $80-$90 before tax this is also with coupons doubled. Anyone see any other deals that can help please let me know.
How are you able to use ’3′ Target coupons on the Nature Made Vitamelts? Don’t they stipulate:
“LIMIT ONE COUPON OR OFFER PER GUEST”?
All the ones I have printed do.
Thanks for helping me understand this, as I can use all the help I can get
Kathy- You are correct. In order to use the coupons correctly you can only use 1 target coupon per guest. It is so important that we follow the guidelines for proper couponing— if not, Publix may go the way Kroger has and eliminate doubling/stop accepting competitor coupons. Even though your Publix may “allow” more than 1 Target Q, you are not using the coupon as intended. Publix has, by far, the best coupon policy out there, but if people knowingly abuse the system, they are hurting us all, and I wouldn’t blame Publix if they tightened their couponing policies.
Agreed. While I believe we all answer to own conscience, I sometimes see a lot of blurring of lines in the comments sections. We shouldn’t be surprised if Publix places restrictions in the future like doing away with accepting competitors’ coupons.
I have always abided by the “1″ Target coupon per offer rule. That’s why I asked how it was that they were able to use 3…..Thanks for letting me know that I am doing right !!!
My Publix considers my kids a guest. I bring them to abide by the policy.
Target allows you to use more than 1 coupon on multiple item. I just used them yesterday. I asked the cashier and she said it meant you cant use more than 1 coupon on 1 item. the system allowed it at target too. Its a bit confusing.
I did not notice that it said 1 coupon per offer. I work at Publix in the deli and I alerted my managers as to the fact that the dial is 2 per customer as well as the axe and the right guard cause they paid someone who was overusing the coupons. I appreciate everyone who tries to do the right thing with coupons cause as an employee my paycheck thanks those doing it the right way and not cheating the system.
The Kraft Recipe Makers cooking sauce is $3.49 in my FL Publix. I asked if they could double check the price… after some time the customer service rep told me that they are not in the system to be on sale for $2.49 this week or next
Here in AL also, not worth the dollar in my opinion. Only two flavors to choose from!
Same price of $3.49 instead of $2.49 at my Publix in Marietta, GA but they did have 6 options so I picked up the 2 that looked the best and skipped the rest!
I’m totally confused. From what I understand, looking at the fine print of the gas card coupon… you must present a receipt for a $50 purchase along with the gas card in order to get it. So, how does buying all this stuff (before coupons) and then buying the gas card in the same transaction even work? According to what I’m reading, you have to present your receipt for $50 grocery purchase when you buy the gas card.
that’s .. present a receipt for a $50 grocery purchase along with the gas card coupon…
It is a coupon in the Publix ad. You grab $50 worth of groceries PLUS a $50 gas card. Your total will be $100 +
Hand them the $10 gas card coupon…you total goes down to $90+, continue giving them the other coupons for the products in your purchase. You can dwindle the total down to where you are basically just paying for the gas card and getting your groceries for cheap/free.
I realize that it is a coupon in the newspaper. IT says that you must present the coupon along with your RECEIPT for spending $50 on groceries. I’m failing to see how you can present the receipt for spending $50 when you’re trying to buy the gas card with coupon in that same transaction.
It says….”original coupon and single receipt for $50 grocery purchase required for each deal”
Meaning you must have an original coupon (not a copy) and spend $50 in groceries a single transaction before using the coupon. Feel free to ask….this is not the first time they have offered this coupon.
I’ll ask at publix, tomorrow morning.
My Publix doesn’t even care if you have the newspaper coupon thingy, they just offer the gas card to everyone when they are ringing you up.
Just did my deal! Paired it with the P&G rebate to get the most for my money! (Atlanta, GA if anyone needs a local price comparison)

Do all publix have the stocking spree coupons? The only ones I could find at my publix where for the P&G products?
I had to ask for them. The desk had them in a cabinet at one store. At another store, I was told that the entire display had been removed from the store by a customer. Whhhaaa-a-a-a-a-a-attt??? How can a customer walk out with a stand-up display? I think I live in a land of crazy people. (See Pampers post below)
Okay, I have to vent somewhere, and I guess this is as good a place as any. I went to 2 stores today about mid-morning. Neither store had anything on the THREE(!) shelves where the Pampers wipes were supposed to be.
I asked the Customer Svc Mgr at one store if there were more on a different display, but no, there were not. I wondered aloud to him: “How could they all be gone? The sale started less than 48 hours ago!” He mentioned to me that a few people came in shortly after the store opened and cleared the shelves.
My thoughts: (which I voiced to the CSM)….
1) why is this allowed when Publix has purchase limits?
2) why aren’t the sales clerks trained to enforce the purchase limits?
3) why can’t there be a LOUD CLANG on the register if more than 10 products are scanned? (I really didn’t mention this one out loud, but I did THINK it. LOL)
Bottom line: I think there will always be crummy people in the world who don’t give a fig for anyone but themselves. And there will always be those who wait for sales with essentially free product or MM, so they can clear the shelves and then resell the product in their own store.
Colgate total advanced pro shield mouthwash 1L was $5.49 not $4.99 still a good price . That’s Ga price
If a store is out of a product and has been for days such as the pampers wipes for 2.99 and the publix coupon is about to expire will they give you a rain check on the coupon?
I have this same issue. I stopped by Customer Service and asked for a rain check. While they would not give me a rain check, the manager DID say I could just tell the cashier that he ok’d purchasing after the exp date of the coupons, and still use them, and just to mention his name. He initialed one of my coupons for my peace of mind.
Hope this works for you!
