A few Publix observations

I noticed a few days ago when I was browsing (sans kiddos) that Publix does, in fact, carry Coconut oil. I ended up buying it at Whole Foods when I needed it, but of course, Publix has it cheaper. It's near the oils in one of their "all natural" insets. darnit.

The Mahatma rice packets are on sale for $.69. There was a $.50/1 coupon a while back making these free. The coupon does not specify type or size, so it may be used on this style.

If you haven't noticed already, Kraft Hidden Valley Ranch will be FREEEEE (plus a little extra) this week with the $2/1 printable HERE

I'll add some other items from my Publix list for the week later on. :)

Dead Deal!

I know, I know, I'm driving you guys bananas with the Rite Aid deals lately, but it's the only store I've gotten really excited about lately! I even cashed out almost all my CVS ecb's and I only have $6 rr's right now. In comparison, I have over $100 in +ups!

Deal died this afternoon. :(

There's a huge Candy deal going on right now at Rite Aid! Many of the smaller bags of candy, not the Halloween ones, but the ones on the regular candy aisle (not the teeny ones on the pegs), they are advertised as 2/$5, get $1 +up back when you buy 2. Well, apparently the non-chocalte candies are also producing a $2 +up for EVERY bag purchased.

So, without any coupons at all, you do this:

2 bags candy 2/$5
=$5 oop

earn $1 +up wyb 2 bags, as advertised
earn (2) $2 +ups (unadvertised)
=Free +tax!

There is a $.50/$5 candy purchase wellness coupon available when you log into your wellness account, so that covers your tax.

Of course if you buy $25, you can use a $5/$25 coupon.

AND, many of the candy is regularly priced low enough that if you have a 20% wellness discount (like I do), they're actually cheaper than $2.50!

So here's what I did

Really quickly...

Because I have got to get to bed, but apparently there are a ton of unadvertised clearance items at RA right now, and I wanted to tell ya'll about a few. I will try to post more of them tomorrow if I get a chance, but here's some I found. There are cuopons for all of these, but I don't have time to post them now, hit up a board with a database, and you should be able to track them down!

Hope this helps a few of you!

Starbucks bagged coffee $2.37 (regularly $9.49)

Campbell's Soup at Hand, Classic Tomato $.49 (regularly $1.99)

Skippy Creamy Peanut Butter $.74 (regularly $2.xx)

OralB Vitality tb $11.99 (regularly $34.xx) ($10 coupon in last P&G and $1/10 wellness q makes this $.99!)
