This was certainly a great week. Publix has upped their purchase price on the gas card deal from $25 to $50. There was finally enough stuff to buy a good prices to meet that $50 threshold. I could have scored better deals on the pasta sauce and cookies, but I missed the internet coupons on them when they were available. However, I know what I will be bringing to all of the potluck events I will be attending as we enter the holiday season!

Publix: Everything Under a $1 each



Spent: $6.72
Saved: $25.66
Total Value: $32.38
Percent Saved: 79%

I did Publix yesterday, but there were some items I forgot to get and some items my regular store didn't have in stock. If I would have bought all of this in one trip, I would have been able to score the $10 off $50 gas card deal with a $50 purchase deal.

There is a mistake on the fantastik/Scrubbing Bubbles deal. The coupons I used were  for fantastik with Scrubbing Bubbles. However, the yellow bottle is the wrong product for the coupon, though it has the Scrubbing Bubbles logo on it. It simply said that this was fantastik is made by the makers of Scrubbing Bubbles, whereas the green bottle is both products combined. The coupon wouldn't scan, but they took it anyway. I called the score when I got home and realized the mistake, but they said I would not need to come back and exchange the products.
