Publix Trip – 102.7% savings

Publix Trip – 102.7% savings (They PAID ME $4.01 for $145.22 Grocery Retail)

So near the end of the day today I was emailed a matchup that I almost fell out of my chair over. Centrum is 25% off right now, and there is a $5.00 MQ and a $3.00 SQ, so you can score some SERIOUS overage…

7 Centrum (sale + MQ printable coupon + SQ (in green advantage flyer) = $2.01 OVERAGE per bottle)
4 Packages Rolls (sale + MQ (5/20 RP) + SQ (Grillin Publix magazine in store) = FREE)

(and so with all that overage, I got things that we actually will USE in the house…)

4 Packages Turkey Meat
2 Packages Chicken Meat
10 Cans of Vegetables (10/$10 sale)
4 Tubs of Breyer Ice Cream (B1G1 + MQ printable coupon + SQ Target printable coupon)

Picked up two gas cards and used 3 $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon cards

Total Grocery Price (pre coupon): $101.99
Total OOP: They PAID ME $4.01

So in the end, I paid $95.99 for $100.00 in gas cards and everything you see in the picture.

    Did you use the probiotics centrum coupon on the regular centrum?That is the only mc on that link you gave.

    1. You know Linda…I never even noticed that there was a difference in the products…I saw the word “Centrum” and grabbed enough to match the number of coupons I had in hand.

      Looks like I’ll be taking a trip to the store first thing in the AM and switching them out for ProBiotic boxes instead. From what I’m seeing on the other sites, there is about $1.50 difference…so that’d put me under the 100% mark but feeling better by using the coupons as they are meant to be used.

      Thanks for pointing that out to me – trust me, I never want to be “that guy”.

    The MQ for the Centrum ProNutrients Supplement only allows you to print it twice. How did you get 7 MQ’s

      Also, I looked in Target coupons online and could not find one for Centrum.

      1. The store level coupon can actually be found in the Green “Advantage Flyer” coupon leaflet at the Publix stores…

    1. I am in the computer software industry (in my “real life”) so we have several old computers sitting around the house. They USED to just get trashed when they no longer provided any real use to myself or my family (the kids don’t need “state of the art”, just something fast enough to play their games), but now the old machines sit and collect dust until a really good offer comes along…then I “fire them up” (which takes some time as some are upwards of 8 years old) and they each print out two coupons.
