Publix 2/9

Starting yesterday, there is a new Publix rebate available that goes with the new booklet, "Running Out? Run In" promotion.  I wasn't sure I'd be able to get the coupons, but I made a scenario just in case...and luckily, my Publix had them when I asked at CS. You had to buy $30 in participating products in one purchase, and you'd get a $5 gift card in return. I only used the Pampers and Yoplait coupons, but that was $3 right there...and then I was glad I'd also saved my $2/1 Cheerios Publix coupons from a few weeks ago.  Although the Honey Nut weren't included in the rebate, the regular and Multi-Grain were, and using manufacturer and store q's really brought down the prices on these big, not-on-sale boxes.

I try not to go through too many Pillsbury sweet rolls and biscuits, because man those things are tasty.  But, when they go on sale 10/$10, and there is a .50/1, or .50/2 coupon available, I stock up for a good long while.  We also make biscuits, which make these last a good bit longer, and make for a special treat.  I never buy Yoplait yogurt, but since it was part of the promotion, the price ended up almost equal to what I usually pay for cups and/or a pint of other brands of yogurt. 

My husband has turned me into a grits eater....of course they need lots of butter and cheese, but I wouldn't have touched those things 2 years ago.  We'd finally used up our little box, so this bag should last a good looooong while! Of course I come home and a new coupon for 'get $5, when you spend $15 on Quaker products', pops up on SavingStar.  Oh well...

Publix in my area is also running the gas gift card deal in addition to doing pretty well with the rebate, I also snagged a $50 gift card to Shell (where I can use my Kroger .10 off/gallon discount) for $40!
