MsAttitude-

Multi quoting is easy!

Look at the bottom of my post. YOu will see 4 bottons. One says mod alert (oh please don't do that to me LMAO, reply, then two quote bubbles, and then a pencil in a quote bubble. You want the third button from left, 2nd from right (the 2 quote bubble one). When you point your mouse over it, it will say "Multi-quote this message".

Click on that button for each post you want to click on. Then you click on post reply. You will have all the multi-quotes in one post Smilie

Quote from MsAttitude View Post :
AFTER I "purchased" the Publix GC, I then turned around and did another AMEX/Publix gift card deal....
First deal was 5.01 MM
second deal is 10.02
was a good day today too, did this many times, One tried to C-Block me, however her manager explained nicely to her that Publix, ISN'T losing out on the deal, so "don't worry about it."
Reps for the C-Block terminology, I've never heard that one used, well at least not in this context, but I love it, thanks for giving me a laughlaugh out loud today, and thanks for the idea on the gift card MM, I repped everyone I could.

Just a reminder that the Healthy Choice Mixers are BOGO at $2.99.

There is a printable for $1.00/1 that is an ALL YOU exclusive. It is located here http://http://www.allyou.com/coup...000049927/ utilizing zip 34711.

Buy 2 of them for $2.99
Use 2 of the $1.00 off ALL YOU printables (there are also several other sources for $1.00 MF coupons)
Use $1/2 Walgreens Coupon (Monthly Book - Pink Book found near ad's at the door - Make your sweetheart Happy)

. . . AND THE HEALTHY CHOICE MIXERS ARE FREE!!!! (Actually it is a .01 mm)

FYI - There is also a Marie Callender's ALL YOU exclusive $1/1 coupon at the same link.

I am hoping the Friskies 5.5 oz cans will go on sale before the 24th (but they were on sale recently for 40 cents so probably not)

currently they are 50 cents each
24 cans - $2.50 PQ (for 24) - $1 MQ (for 12) - $1 MQ (for 12) = $7.50 / 24 = 31 cents per can

I'd like to break 30 cents, maybe 25 cents per can.
If they went back to 40 cents:
((.40 * 24) - 2.50 - 1 - 1) / 24 = 21 cents per can !

Hope you are okay. Feel better! hug



Mama, help me here, please. Here is what I thought you did:
Step 1:
Buy $50 AMEX GC with the PQ. Pay $50 + $4.95 (activation fee) = $54.95 and you get a $10 Publix GC. So, in a nutshell, it's a $5.05 mm.
Step 2:
Use the $50 AMEX GC to buy a $50 Publix GC. So, this is money-laundry. laugh out loud You break even.
Step 3:
Rinse and repeat.

I don't understand how you made $10 during the 2 GC purchases.

.
Ok so i also read your reply to this msattitude, but im confused...lol
So you pay CASH, and get the 50AMEX card and then get a free 10 publix card.. then you take the amex card and buy a 50 dollar publix card... so how are rinsing and repeating??
Are you just shelling out 50 cash each time on the amex card just to get the 10 publix card and the 50 publix card... Sorry im dense todaySmilie

I tried doing the Amex deal and ended up in an argument with the CS mngr I first asked if I could do $100, no problem but I had to wait awhile for it to activate so I did my shopping then went back to CS and told the girl that I would like to buy another $100 ame using the one I had bought and she looked at me as if she didn't understand what I had said. I told her I had already cleared with the CS mngr and it was ok. She goes and gets CS mngr at this point I'm holding up the line the CS mngr says no I said you could buy multiple $50 NO SHE DID NOT!!! that was why I was holding a $100 right????

I told the rude lieing CS mngr I wanted a refund because that was not the way she had explained it 45 mintues prior.

She was really Biatchy. She goes and talks to the store mngr he said only if I do 2 $50 I could use the amex OK whatever I did

so I I ended up with 2 $50 Amx GC
and 4 $10 Pblx GC

this little ordeal cost 15.85 for activation fees for a MM of 24.15 not bad after all the stress from attila the hun......

I wasn't able to use the Amex to buy Publix cards. It kept saying not authorized. They had no idea why.

I thought there was a 1 hour window before the Amex card will work? Could this be why?

My experience on SD (which is not all that long but I consider myself an "oldie" here) is that whenever karmalaw makes a post, I read and read and make notes. She is one of the few articulate and savvy SDers out there who can provide a wealth of information in a concise matter. worship I really enjoy her posts.

Here is a perfect example of her post when a simple question was asked about the activation fee of an AMEX card.

Quote from karmalaw View Post :
Depends on the card. It's printed right on the packaging -- the $100 card was the best value (rather than 2 $50's or 4 $25s) -- it was $100 last time they did this.. BUT, The $50 works also. Just know that there's about a 1 hour lag time between when you purchase it and when you can use it. If you're the type of person who'd use a $4 off coupon --- then this is the deal for you. It's basically a free $4 for converting your money to the card -- and the card can be used nearly everywhere. At Publix there's no issue with using any wonky leftover amounts on the card -- the registers are set up for "split tender" -- just use the card and the rest you'll pay however else you'd usually pay.
Now, my memory is coming back to me. I purchased a $100 AMEX card which came with the $10 Publix GC last time when the deal was offered. My Publix was weird because instead of paying $105.xx (including the activation fee) and getting a $10 Publix GC, the CS supervisor rang me up in the way that I paid about $95 for a $100 AMEX card (no Publix GC). Interesting, isn't it?!

I had that happen one time in the past. When they ran out of publix gift cards they began just taking $10 off your total. Sounds close to your situation.

So I finally made it out of my snow palace today (LOL) and made a trip to Publix. Here was my trip:

2 Goodlife Cat Food - .25 per bag
4 Healthy Choice Mixers - Free
2 Sara Lee Carrot Cakes (These are so yummy) - 1.29 per cake
4 Crystal Light Lemonade - .25 each
2 Bob Evans Hash Browns - .29 each
2 Country Crock Spread - .08 each
2 Nesquik Milk - Free
2 Knox Gelatin - Free ($5.20 ov)
4 Hallmark Bows - Free
2 Bananas (Filler) - .23
1 Jalapeo (Filler) - .06
1 Sunday Newspaper - 1.87

Total - $6.98
Overage - $5.20
Tax - .56
OOP - $1.34 Dance14

American Express Gift Card - $100.00
Activation Fee - $5.95
Total - $105.95
Minus - $20.00 - (Two $10.00 Publix "credits")
Payment - $85.95

Somehow I was under the impression that you physically received a $10.00 Publix gift card when you purchased a $50.00 AMEX gift card (similar to the way Target does it) yet my cashier just punched in the PLU and off came $10.00 - he did this two times since I bought a $100 card!! That was fine with me!!

I am a happy shopper today! Roll
