Thread Details

The PUBLIX thread is IMHO the best grocery store thread around heart
Here's a little chat area for us all to share info, recipes, rant's, raves and whatever else we want without clogging up the regular weekly deals thread for PUBLIX. If we want to share super deals we find in other stores or whatnot that's ok too heart

I think we all are such a great family that it's a good to have our own special place Grouphug


You can post basically anything you like in here but let's keep deals info in the actual PUBLIX thread. All are welcome and basically no major rules except be kind and courteous of other's and treat each other with respect. Other than that let's all have some fun! Also you don't have to shop at PUBLIX to share in the chat or whatnot... we like everyone.

I feel like ranting and this is the best place possible. A few days ago I got 4 of those 1 stop 1 shop booklets and noticed that they were all missing the dropps coupons. I thought ok publix must have cut them out for some reason since they did not want PQs to go with their sales. Turns out some lame jerk had cut them out and put the booklets back. Well I got a couple more today and they did have the dropps coupons but when I went to get the product I noticed that someone had taken every single MQ off the product. WHY? The product is free so wtf are you saving the coupons for. Oh wait ebay. To the jerkoff who stole yes STOLE all the coupons from the weldon blvd store in lake mary, FL I will be watching out for you and so are the employees who are also sick of it. Play by the frickin rules and stop being a jerk. If the product is free with the coupon then take the damn product along with the coupon and stop being an asshole.
I went to 4 stores today for Dropps and every.single.peelie was gone. I can only assume that they took them, got a RC and were waiting for more of the One Stop booklets. Or they're just assholes.

I found 1 lone peelie and used a SAL Q to cover the cost of the rest. 10 bags, along with other items, cost me a little over $2 today. Could have been better, but I won't argue (much).

My store had plenty of the 1 stop booklets so no RC was required. I talked to the manager and he cannot even put out coupons anymore because 1 person will take them all. I play fairly and still have amassed a huge stockpile. There is no need to cheat or steal or do any of that stuff. Come on people.

Peelies...never saw any here. And the packages didn't look like they ever had any, so it wasn't folks just stealing them. I paid $1 each for 14 bags (divided into two transactions, each with a $/$$). Funny thing is I don't even use detergent (I make my own laundry soap)...just figured they'd be better stocking stuffers than a heavy bottle of Tide! Teehee

Where do all the $X off $Y (competitor or not) come from? Expired Publix $5 off $30 or $5 off $35 cannot be used here.

There isn't one single Publix in Huntsville that has Sav-A-Lot as a competitor. There are no Winn-Dixies here, so they aren't a competitor.

The ones here definitely had them, you could still see the clear backing where the coupon was.

Anddd I got my Shabby Chic bedding today for 75% off woot Now I just need to decide on the colors. I originally wanted pink (and I picked one up), but the khaki/beige is growing on me and I could use the magenta sheets I got last week with it. Also picked up a soft blanket in a pretty green for $14.98- can't believe someone would pay $60 for it! It's the same material as some of the college blankets, but it's a full/queen, which is super nice.

...and tried the new $6/2 Schick disposables coupon? Did it scan?

Went this AM and found 12 packs for 1.97.....had 12 in my order...6 coupons.....stuff to absorb the overage (coupons say no cash back if value exceeds)...and they beeped to high heaven!

After a 20 minute wait...with people lined up behind me...FINALLY the CSM came back and said; "if it doesn't scan we can't take it".

Arggghhh! How do ya'll that do WM STAND it?????

Please enlighten...I swear every time I go there I tell myself Never Again!

And then in about a year I try again with the same results....Stress
Any coupons that exceeds the price of the item will beep at WM to be verified. It should have come up as is coupon amount valid? Cashier should just verify you bought the right product and push the button to accept the coupon.

What is wrong with these CSM's not scanning would be the computer not scanning the barcode...that I can see them refusing. But beeping to verify price is totally different.

We go to WM once in a while - this weekend, we picked up some Cascade trial size and the cashier wouldn't take it. Mind you, this is a WM that has the coupon policy AT EACH REGISTER. WTH??? A cashier told us the other day that she knew her (wrong) stuff because she had worked there for 5 years and all I could think was "yeah, and this is where you'll be in 10, too". Seems she couldn't read either.

WM is frustrating, no doubt, but when you find a good cashier, the coupon policy is great. I'm hopeful that because of their size other chains will model their coupon policies on WM's.

I don't even know if they got the peelies here or what because all of the Dropps were gone. One store gave me a raincheck for them, the other store said they couldn't because it was an in store special.

I hope I can find some with peelies for the raincheck!

The other big problem was finding the Pillsbury scrambles/biscuit sandwhiches. They said they were out at the warehouse. Frown I went to three Publix and only came out with some vitamins, 3 bags of pepperoni, a bunch of bananas, loaf of bread and two cartons of eggs. Frown

Ugh, I hate when something is so hard to find - frustrating.

As an aside, DH and I thought the biscuit sandwiches were vomit I would definitely recommend, if you are heating them in the microwave, to use the instructions of 50% power. If you don't then the biscuit is really tough.

I had to do mine the lowest amount of time or it would get hard. I guess I'm disadvantaged not having a deep freeze. I bought two packs, then went back a second time and there were none. I found a guy stocking in the freezer section and he said that a coupon lady had been in there earlier and bought 24 of them, and then asked him to see if they had any more in the back. OMG Definitely does not help if the store doesn't limit quantities! I would have bought my max of 10 in the beginning if I'd had the freezer space! Now I have tons of freezer space and no product! Embarrassment

Weight watchers gals...

Wanted to ask you all what you think of the new points plus program. I gave most of my old ww books away, I've basically reverted back to the old '1-2-3 success' books I've had (which was like the *first* points program ever! I might have one of those points finders from back then, but I'm wondering what some of you think about the new program.

I found out that as of last year they no longer allow non-members to buy books there, just wondering if people thought the changes were so good that I should consider buying or finding a friend to buy me some of their materials. Embarrassment Not that I'm a fan of having to completely relearn a new system, but if it's that much better it may be worth it.

This is totally OT, but do we have a Petsmart deals thread or discussion thread on SD? I've searched and can't find it. Thanks,
I haven't seen one...would love info on Petsmart deals too. Getting low on animal food, both dog and cat, and the deals there are hit or miss.

I do know that Petsmart sent me an email with a 15% off in store q (not much, but it's something, right)...it seems to be universal usage for everyone (a lot of their q's print with your name and petperks card number on it, but this one didn't. See if this link [petsmart.com] works...if not, I'll upload my PDF.

After I got that email, I logged in to my Petperks account and clicked on coupons. There are MQ's for $2/1 Purina One Beyond cat food and $2/1 Purina One Beyond dog food. They print with your name and Petperks number and say "Valid at Petsmart stores through 12/31/11", but are MQ's with retailer remit info. Can print to PDF...

There were a few other q's in my account, including $5 off Biljac dog food and $5 off a hamster and a couple others (B?G1 Royal Canin cat food cans, some treat for free wyb a certain dog food...don't remember them all now...sorry!)
