Winn-Dixie: Only Brought 2 Coupons but Lots of Deals!



Spent: $49.95
Saved: $42.70
Total Value: $92.65
Percent Saved: 46%

fuelperks! Earned: $0.30/gal
fuelperks! to Date: $1.95/gal

This trip proves that you can save a lot just by shopping the sales. Some people don't want to clip and search for coupons. Coupons may not be available for items you need, which is the case for me and my low-carb diet. I used a $5.00 off $55.00 Winn-Dixie coupon that you would get at the register, two $1.00 Dole salad coupons that were on the packages, as well as a $0.75 off coupon for the jelly. That's it.

Percent Saved: 57%

Here are this week's deals from Publix. I used a $5/$30 Winn-Dixie coupon to shave down the cost. I forgot that I had a $5/$30 Publix coupon from their Spring Cleaning sale booklet. My pre-coupon total was  $30.40 and that included produce. Talk about precision! I guess I will give that away. Here are the highlights.

I swung in last night on the last day of the sale cycle to snag these deals. My savings are even greater due to two rebates. There is a rebate on the Lysol Wipes, making both FREE as well as a $5.00 rebate on the Scrubbing Bubbles toilet kit, making that $1.99. Publix also had the $10 off $50 gas card with a $25 purchase deal going on. It would have been sweet to get a Shell card to use with Winn-Dixie's fuelperks!, but all they had left was BP. It's still $10 off gas...

Winn-Dixie: Surprise Deals and $1.40/gal off gas!



Spent: $24.49
Saved: $20.18
Total Value: $44.67
Percent Saved: 45%

fuelperks! Earned: $0.10/gal
fuelperks! to Date: $1.40/gal

The best deal was the $1.99/lb surprise sale on ground beef. My numbers up at the top would be more, but this wasn't a sale attached to the rewards card, and I didn't feel like doing the calculations on my own. I got a raincheck for the free Scotch Brite wipes. Hopefully they will come in before the coupon expires on April 25.  Here are the highlights.

Winn-Dixie: $0.99 for SMITHFIELD Bacon!



Spent: $2.49
Saved: $5.29
Total Value: $7.78
Percent Saved: 68%

I was just planning to buy some salad, so I wasn't going to document this trip. But then as I scouted the store looking for unadvertised deals ahead of my weekend trip, I came across the bacon deal that was too good to pass up. This bacon expires on 4/17, so there was a $2.00 Winn-Dixie coupon on it. There was also a $1.00 tearpad next to it. That equals $0.99!

Smithfield Pouch Pack Bacon, $3.99 Sale

CVS: Just Tax, Warranty Replacement and Freebies!



Spent: $1.40
Saved: $33.48
Total Value: $34.88
Percent Saved: 96%

ECBs Used: $0.50
ECBs Earned: $1.00

So, the Swiffer a year ago broke. The handle fell broke in half. I don't even use it much because most of  my home is carpeted. Take advantage of warranties!  So, I contacted Proctor & Gamble and they sent me a coupon for a free replacement as a fulfillment of their warranty. Awesome. Of course, I combined this with a X/XX coupon from CVS to score some other freebies. I pretty much just paid sales tax. 

$0.50 Winter Spending ECB
$5.00 off $25.00 CVS Coupon

Swiffer Wet Jet Starter, $26.49

Walgreens: Cheap Nuts & Eggs


Spent: $5.03
Saved: $13.31
Total Value: $18.34
Percent Saved: 73%

If eggs at Aldi are $0.89 but they are $1.00 each at Walgreens, why is Walgreens the better deal? Because Aldi doesn't take coupons! There was a hot $0.55 off any brand dozen eggs from Incredible Edible Eggs. 

Boom Boom Boom! Cheap nuts and eggs!
