My trip to Publix! So worth it!

Ok so I made a trip to Publix in Fairhope today with my Mom. We were doing a test run to see if it would be worth our time, money and gas! Good news: It was! Bad news: We went on the wrong day! They get trucks on Monday and Friday nights, so the best times to go are first thing Tuesday mornings and Saturday mornings. We had to get a LOT of rainchecks but that is ok because I fully intend on returning!

Publix has great Buy 1 Get 1 Deals (they split the cost down the middle so you don't have to buy two items to get the lower price!), they accept 2 manufacturer coupons and 2 store coupons on B1G1 (that's two per item!), they accept competitors coupons(like the $5 off $25 from Rite Aid or the $10 off $50 from Winn Dixie BUT only 1 a day per customer) AND they have really good everyday value deals that change monthly plus instore unadvertised specials. I would NOT suggest buying all your groceries here because their regular prices seemed a little high.

So here is a run down of what I bought and where I got the coupons. These deals are good through Wednesday.

1-Publix Fruit loop cereal $1.99-instore special
1-Publix Frosted Flakes $1.99- instore special
2-Post Cocoa Pebbles B1G1 $3.99 ($2 each)
2-Nabisco Honey Maid Graham Crackers 2/$4.23
-$2/2 any Nabisco cracker here (print 2)
4-Ronzoni Pasta B1G1 $1.39 ($0.70 each)
2-Kraft Honey Hickory BBQ Sauce B1G1 $1.89 ($.85 each)
1-Lysol Toilet bowl cleaner $2
1-Broccoli head $1.99
2-Publix Pizza Rolls $1.99 each instore special
2-Farm Rich Meatballs B1G1 $6.99 ($3.50 each)
2-Pillsbury Toaster Strudel B1G1 $2.49
- $1/1 pillsbury toaster strudel here (print 2)
4-Tyson Heat and Eat entrees B1G1 $6.99 ($0.50 each after coupons!)
-$2/1 Publix coupon (print 4) contact me for coupon
-$1/1 print here (print 4) this is a PDF file so it takes a few minutes to load be patient!
2-Yoplait YoPlus yogurt 4 pack 2/$2.50 ($0.25 each after coupons!)
- $1/1 Yoplait YoPlus yogurt GM 1/3/10 (you need 2)
6-Publix 8 oz. block cheese mozzarella and medium cheddar $1.69 each
1.6 lbs White grapes $1.99 lb.
1.86 lbs. red apples $0.69 lb.

Winn Dixie $10 off $50 (you can get a $5 off $25 from Rite Aid here)

Total before coupons: $128.12

Total OOP(including tax):$47.86

It took us about an hour to get to Fairhope from Vancleave and cost us roughly $10 in gas. I am planning on making a return trip sometime this week if anyone would like to tag along! I think my $85 in savings was worth the trip!

There are many other deals available this week that I didn't want or didn't get (hence the rain checks) so check out iheartpublix and look for yourself!

Hot Tostitos Deal at Target!

If you are not already bursting out of the pantry with Tostitos and Dip than here is your chance to become like the rest of us! My Baton Rouge Mommy outlined a great deal beginning tomorrow at Target where you can get 2 Tostito Chips and 1 Dip for $3!
Here is how:
Starting Sunday Target will have Tostitos Chips on sale for 2/$5.00 and when you buy 2, you will receive a FREE Tostitos dip. That’s a good price already but here’s how to make it even better:
Buy (2) Tostitos Chips $5.00 and (1) FREE Tostitos dip
- (1) printable Target coupon save $1.00 wyb both (1) Chip & (1) Dip
-(1) $1.00 wyb both (1) Chip & (1) Dip from All You Magazine January OR There is also this coupon as a tearpad recently spotted at the Fairhope Publix
= $3.00 for (2) Chips and (1) Dip ($1.00 each)!

What Couponing really is!

I got this from I Prefer Pulix. Brandy did a great job of explaining what couponing is and how it works and that we are not ripping anyone off! I thought it would be good to share! So when you are using your coupons don't feel bad! You are doing NOTHING wrong!

One of the things that bugs me the most about being a couponer is that people (and by people I mean, cashiers, managers, other customers) think I am getting away with something, ripping off the store, cheating the system, some even say I am stealing. And it makes me furious.

This attitude comes from a lack of knowledge about how coupons work. If you're here reading my blog, you probably know how coupons work. Here's a quick reminder for all of us...

Manufacturer's coupons: When the stores submit these to the clearinghouse, they are reimbursed FULL FACE VALUE plus $.08 per coupon. So the store makes MORE money by accepting your coupon than by the average shopper handing over cash/credit.
*If a coupon is difficult to read/scan at the fault of the manufacturer/design, the store can charge the manufacturer even more for the handling of these q's.
*Most Clearinghouses are huge conveyor belts that scan coupons to tally the reimbursement value, so that cashier that agrees to "give it to you for free, shouldn't that be enough?" by marking your $1 coupon down to $.75? Just made $.25 for the store. That huge scanner doesn't pay a single inkling to that little $.75 the cashier wrote on your coupon.
*Stores even get reimbursed postage for the cost of shipping the coupons to the clearinghouse.

Doubling/Tripling coupons: A gimmick to get you in the door. The store eats the cost of doubles/triples. They consider it worthwhile if it causes you to shop there rather than at... Wal-Mart.

Competitor Coupons: This is truly a loss for a store. There is no reimbursement value for competitor coupons. Like doubling/tripling, accepting competitor coupons is a gimmick to get you in the doors to buy all your other items at their store rather than the competitor. Stores that accept competitor coupons are using a brilliant marketing strategy. They are counting on you wanting to buy all your items in one place, and hoping that if you have a competitor's coupon that you can use at their store, you'll stick around for the other things as well.

Store Coupons: Store coupons are a little tricky to define. Let's take Publix as an example. Regular Publix shoppers will notice that those Advantage Buy Flyers have coupons and sales that rotate on a regular basis. One that appears often is the $6/2 Sundown Vitamins coupon. The CEO of Publix may be a nice guy, but he's not browsing the local store looking for things to give away. I promise. :) What happens is, some head honcho at Sundown gets together with some head honcho at Publix and they strike a deal. The value could be based on number of coupons redeemed, or number of stores that run the sale. Specifically for Publix, the most recent numbers show that Publix is getting reimbursed approximately 75-80% of the Store coupons' face value. So don't let anyone say to you "Publix doesn't get reimbursed for these" "We can't give it to you for free" "We can't pay you to take it". Because that shows lack of knowledge of how these q's work.

BOGO deals (Publix): You may not be aware of this, but like the store coupons, sales like the Mega sales at Kroger and BOGO sales at Publix are also marketing ploys that are reimbursed by the manufacturer! If Publix is selling Scrubbing Bubbles BOGO at $3.99/ea, that means, you, the consumer, will pay half price for the item, or $2.00. At the end of the sale, Publix tells Johnson and Johnson, hey, we sold 100 bottles of Scrubbing Bubbles, costing us $199, now pony up. And Johnson and Johnson PAYS Publix for running the special and promoting the product. It is another form of advertising. Most recent numbers show that BOGO sales at Publix are reimbursed at approximately 70-80%.

ETA: It occurred to me I failed to mention rainchecks. Rainchecks are another loss for a store. The store is reimbursed the difference of the sale to the store, but if a raincheck is issued, the store is the one to eat the cost when you do use the raincheck. The manufacturer will cover the "deal" for the week the item is on sale, but the store is responsible for keeping the items in stock. If a store has to issue a raincheck, then the amount of discount given is lost since it is beyond the sale week. This is a reason you will have limits enforced on rainchecks.

It makes me crazy that people have this mindset that people who use coupons are abusing the system. I hate that. As long as you are an honest couponer, using legit coupons and following the store rules, then you are doing no such thing. Abuse comes from illegal photocopies, stacking two manufacturer coupons on one item, and so forth. That is true abuse of the system. Most of us? We are just honest people looking for a good deal.

And in the end? The store wins. The store wins BIG by catering to couponers. Let me show you what I mean. . .

When I shop at Publix, I use the trick of buying multiple moneymakers to build up overage to afford the items I need. This helps reduce my out of pocket expense. Do I need 10 bottles of Aleve? 8 Rolls of J&J gauze? 10 boxes of Phazyme? Not right at the moment, and I certainly wouldn't walk into Publix and pay for all of that with cash. So Publix makes a higher profit by selling to me than the average person who runs in for a few things.

My most recent shopping trip:

For Items I use regularly that I stockpiled or needed (eggs, Morningstar, fruit, etc)
Total Cost: $125.61
Total store coupons: $5
Total Mq's: $64.15
(Quantity of mq's presented: 51: $4.08 handling fees)
Total doubles: $4.50
Total BOGO: $60.49

For Moneymakers:
Total cost: $108.96
Total store coupons: $103
Total Mq's: $82
(Quantity of mq's presented: 41: $3.28 handling fees)

For this scenario, we'll go with an 80% return on BOGOs and store q's.
So, for this trip, after reimbursement, the store will have received approximately $288.50, losing $38.20 in store coupons, doubles and BOGOs.

BUT If I wasn't a couponer, and only bought the items I needed/wanted, and we're assuming I am still stockpiling... The store would have made $120.62, losing $17.60 in store coupons, BOGOs and doubles.

When I shopped, I cost them $20.60, but I brought in an additional $167.88.

Now. Which stores was it that wanted to turn away the couponers????

*Disclaimer: I worked as a budget/price analyst for four years for a Publishing company, saving my company more than $1.5 million in residual effects in a single year, so I am pretty darn good with numbers.

Walgreens Trip 1/29

Here are the results of my Walgreens trip today! Despite having to pay $1 for my razors it was a good trip!

2 jumbo pack Huggies Supreme Diapers $8.99
-$3 manufacturers coupon
-$2 manufacturers coupon
2 boxes Huggies Natural Care wipes 2/$5
-$1 off each Walgreens store coupon
-$0.75 manufacturers coupon
-$0.75 manufacturers coupon
2 BIC Hybrid Advance Razors B1G1 $6.99
- B1G1 coupon from SS 1/10/10

Total OOP: $17.56

UPDATE on Walgreens Razor Deal

Well I have good news and I have bad news! Three of us went to get the awesome deal I mentioned yesterday on FREE BIC razors from Walgreens. We got razors but they weren't free. Walgreens was sneaky! The Walgreens ad from Sunday said "Buy 1 razor at $6.99 and get 1 razor Free" that is NOT the deal. The deal is actually buy 1 razor at $5.99 get the 2nd razor for $1. I don't believe that is truth in advertising and feel very cheated. The deal should have been as I posted it both razors free and you only pay tax, instead it was both razors for $1 plus tax. So that's the good news it is still an awesome deal $1.49 for two razors with 12 extra replacements blades.

My apologies if any of you went to get your free razors and ended up having to pay a little bit for them. I am going to investigate this farther and will let you know what I find out.

Another Walgreens Deal FREE Razors!

Here's another Walgreens deal! Free BIC Razors!

Bic Razors are on sale this week Buy 1 Get 1 Free when you pair that with the B1G1 Free coupon from the SS 1/10/10 that makes both razors FREE! You pay only tax!

We are now on Facebook!

Come check us out on Facebook! Click here.

Walgreens Deal- Huggies Wipes $0.25 to $0.75 each

There is a great deal going on right now at Walgreens for Huggies wipes. Walgreens has put out more in store coupons. You can print a copy here(Thanks iheartwags) Included in this flyer is a coupon for $1 off 1 Huggies wipes which is a decent deal in itself but if you have the $0.75 manufacturer coupon to go with the store coupon it's a GREAT deal!

The coupon says limit 2 (1 coupon will take a $1 each box of wipes when you buy 2 so print your coupon more than once if you need too!) Now some cashiers will continue to use the same coupon for any more over 2 that you buy so you may want to print an extra one if you want to be safe!

Here's how to get the deal:

Huggies Wipes on sale 2/$5
Use the $1/1 store coupon (it will take off $2)
Use 2 $0.75 off manufacturer coupons (that's another $1.50 off)
Final cost $0.75 each box!

AND there's more! The Huggies wipes are part of the spend $25 get $5 Register Rewards deal so if you have enough coupons do this:

Buy 10 boxes of wipes at 2/$5 (that's $2.50 each)= $25

Use the $1 off 1 store coupon (may only need 1 copy may need 5 copies depends on the cashier!) So that's $10 off

Then use 10 of the $0.75 off coupons which is another $7.50 off

Total OOP-$7.50 plus tax and you get a $5 Register Reward so theoretically that makes them $0.25 a box!

Counterfeit Coupons

You may notice that many of the coupons and deals I list/will list come from reliable sources and manufacturer sites. There is a reason! There are too many counterfeit coupons running around on the internet! It is because of these counterfeit coupons that some stores will not accept internet coupons.

$10 in laundry coupons

Click here to sign up for $10 in laundry coupons. These include Downy, Dryel and several others. You have two options on how to receive them: email or snail mail. I chose snail mail because the email coupons are pdf files and I don't always trust those, but it's up to you which way you want them delivered.

$3 Brita Water Pitcher

Lowe's has their Brita Water Pitchers on sale for $8. If you go HERE and sign up then take a FilterForGood Pledge, you'll get access to a $5 of Brita Water Pitcher making it just $3. Click on the tab that says "Pledge" and it will take you to where you can find the coupon. Not sure if all Lowe's have the pitchers at this price ... so be a smart little shopper and call ahead.

Thanks to SheSaved

I went and got mine today at the D'Iberville store! The coupon has to be manually entered and the pitchers are located at a front display.

Walgreens How to

Catalina coupon--at Walgreens it is called a Register Reward.

*No card required at Walgreens.

*You can use one manufactuer coupon and one Walgreens coupon per item. (stacking)

*Be sure to hand over your manufacturer coupon before the Walgreens coupons so you don't have a beeping cash register!!!

*Walgreens does not take competitor coupons.

*Register Rewards are manufacturer coupons that print from at Catalina machine when you buy certain promotional items.

*Register Rewards are like "Walgreens money".

* You must have as many items as you have coupons. So if you have 5 coupons you must have 5 items. Sometimes you have to add fillers to you will have enough items, especially when you are stacking coupons.
*What are fillers? These are just cheap items that you add to your purchase so you can use all of your coupons. Check clearance section for filler.

*Do Register Rewards expire? Yes.

*What can I purchase with Register Rewards? Anything!

*Where can I use Register Rewards? Walgreens of course. But also Publix. Our Fairhope location will accept them. The rule with using them to pay at Publix is that each Register Reward has to have a different Retailer(you can find this info on the RR).

*What does FREE after Rebate Rewards mean?
Here is an example--Vitamin Shampoo was $3.99. After I checked out, paid cash for the shampoo plus tax...a Register Reward for $4 printed out of the register along with my receipt. So essentially I got the shampoo free--just paid tax.

*Multiple Transactions? Why would I split transactions?
To get more than one Register Reward for the same product.
I wanted the conditioner, but would only get 1 register reward for that item per transaction...If I would have put the conditioner and the shampoo in the same transaction only one $4 Register Reward would have printed out. By breaking it up I received $8 Register Rewards.

*What is "rolling"?
Example, you buy Dove soap and get 2 Register Rewards along with your receipt. In your second transaction you purchase 2 toothbrushes. You pay for the second purchase with 2 Register Rewards(Dove) from the first transaction. And get 2 Register Rewards for the toothbrushes along with you receipt. Roll RRs from first transaction into the second transaction.
