Saved 79% at Publix & My Running Out? Run In. Rebate Scenario



Today was my solo Publix trip after my gallbladder removal surgery. I even carried in the groceries all by myself: : ) Little victories! I was so happy that today's trip worked out the way I had planned.

 Due to the fact that I wanted to do the Running Out? Run In. $10 gift card rebate (see details HERE), I had one transaction planned to the penny. My RORI transaction was $30.24 before tax (and $31.85 with it) so I just barely made the $30 before coupons for the rebate and got to use a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon. stuff.


I wasn't sure if my second transaction would hit $30 since I didn't know if the $2 off Clean & Clear would come off before or after coupons. My cashier said it counted after and was happy to let me use a $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon on that transaction too.

Since we are getting ready for our Colorado trip, we aren't getting any fresh items and are basically eating out of the fridge, freezer and pantry. The fridge is looking pretty bare but I guess that will save me the trouble of cleaning it out before we leave : )

Breakdown of today's Publix trip:
Total retail value: $87.94
Total spent after coupons, sales and gift card rebate: $18.59
Total saved: $69.35
