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.

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!
