Fall Stocking Spree Coupon Booklets - In Store and In The Mail!

Fall Stocking Spree time is here again!  These coupons are usually Publix store coupons that can be combined with a manufacturer coupon and possibly a sale for big savings.  There are two ways to save:

1.  Look for in-store coupons.  I finally found them in my store tonight and they are valid August 9 - August 27, so I have 6 days to save.

2.  Request a booklet to be sent via mail.  If you have already signed up, you should have received an email verifying your address.  To sign up for the first time, go HERE.  These coupons will be valid the month of September and the booklet contains over $67 in savings.  Look for it to arrive between 9/1 - 9/8.

$4/2 Pantene Shampoo, Conditioner, or Styler products printable coupon MQ
$2/1 Pantene Styler printable coupon MQ


Coupons state "Limit 4 like coupons per household per day."  I purchased the nine products shown in the picture for only $7 pre-tax using three of each coupon and a Winn Dixie coupon.

This deal runs through Wednesday, August 27th.

Print this coupon to get each package for only $.45 each!
$1/1 Riceworks printable coupon - you should see it on the first page

HOT Target coupons - Use at Publix if Target is a competitor!

Last Minute Publix Deals - Ending Today!

I have previously written off digital coupons, since they never seemed to work quite right for me and caused more of a hassle than they were worth.  But I decided to give them another try and was pleasantly surprised!

Weight Watchers Frozen Novelties are BOGO through today 8/20.  Log into your Publix digital coupons account and clip this coupon:
$3/2 Weight Watchers Frozen Novelties

Pay just $1.99 for two boxes, or $1 each.  That's a savings of 80%...WOW!

Pepperidge Farm Stuffing is BOGO through today 8/20.  This is the best stuffing out there and we may not see a sale this good over the holidays, so I picked up two packages for the pantry.

Regular price is $2.79, so pay just $1.40 for each package.




I tried the Publix Aprons meal called Chicken Fajita Pitas.  It was delicious and really looks quite simple to throw together.  To view the recipe, click HERE.

I have everything on hand except for the Publix Chicken Tenders ($6.99 on sale, save $2) and the pitas (Toufayan Pitas are BOGO through 8/20).  This is also a great way to use the Birds Eye Frozen Pepper and Onion blend!  (Get them for $.25 each starting 8/21, see the TOP TEN deals HERE.)
Publix 2L Soda is BOGO through today 8/20.  Pay just $.50 each when you buy two!  You really can't beat that price!







The Publix Hand Soap 64 oz. bottle is $4.99 (regular price).  Grab a flyer at the front of the store advertising Publix brand products and on the front is a coupon for $1/1 Publix Hand Soap Refill.

I just picked up the Target brand last week for $4.59, so the Publix brand is a better deal at $3.99 after coupon.  The coupon is only valid through today 8/20.

I use these to refill the little 7.5 oz. pumps, so this bottle is equivalent to 8.5 of the smaller pumps.  That works out to $.47 per pump refill, which is a great price.  Not to mention less waste.

Finally, pick up a great deal on Sharpie Highlighters, BOGO through today 8/20.  Purchase two and stack the following coupons:

$1/1 Sharpie product SS 8/17 - limit one
$1/2 Target printable coupon

Buy two for $3.19 and use one of each coupon, bringing the total down to $1.19 for two, or $.60 each!  Not bad!
