Stocking Up For Summer: Saved 87% At Publix After Gift Card Rebate

Spent $7.76 and Saved $51.31 after coupons, sales and gift card rebate.

One of my favorite things about shopping/couponing at Publix is all the fun promotional booklets and savings they put out throughout the year. I am usually pretty lucky in that I am able to find these booklets in my local stores on a regular basis.

When I saw the information about the new Stocking Up for Summer Savings booklet I got super excited and began to scour my area stores for them. I was totally bummed about not finding them since I really liked the coupons in it as well as the $10 Publix gift card rebate  WYB $25 in eligible products that would be even better with the coupons for the included products.

Lucky for me, my friend/fellow couponer Aaron found them at her store in the next county over and was nice enough to hook me up with a few. Since the rebate scenario I had planned was dependent on the Peter Pan Peanut Butter being BOGO, I made an extra weekly Publix trip this afternoon to take the fullest advantage of the deals.

A few notes: I spent $26.34 on rebate eligible Conagra Foods products before my coupons but after the BOGO deal and store sale prices. I added on a few extra deals to reach $30 before coupons so I could use a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon. I did not in any way clear the shelves of Peter Pan as my store had bins and bins of them in the front display area. Aaron and I also made sure that there were plenty of booklets left for others at her store. There were so many left that she went back again and found even more and was able to get some for me to giveaway to those who couldn't find them in their areas.
