YMMV: $96 for $100 Visa Gift Card at Publix (After Coupon via Publix App)

$95.95

Just noticed in my Publix app that I had a coupon for $10 off a $100 Visa gift card. The gift card is $100 + $5.95 service fee, so $100 + $5.95 - $10 = $95.95.

You can further sweeten the deal by using a credit card that gets cash back or additional perks at grocery stores. Coupon is single use. Expires 07/29/18

Honest question: I'm curious why all the down votes... Is there something that I'm missing? It's not a crazy deal (like 50% off), but it's $4 of free money for very little effort?

1. Publix is regional. This deal really only attracts 6 or 7 states
2. Requires a trip to the store to save $4 on a $100 purchase
3. This deal has popped up many times, with it often being $10 off a $50 Amex or Visa card plus the process charge. Double the savings of this deal which needs $100 gift card purchase
4. They still have the 10 off 50 gas card deal with a $50 grocery purchase.

I mean it is really only worth it if you are going to Publix anyways and need a $100 GC.

They never have a $50 Visa card unless you purchase $50 of groceries. This is free money, no grocery purchase required.

Thanks kdawg. There's a Publix a half mile from my house, so we're there almost every other day for one thing or another. Probably not the case for most of the country though. And yes, their $10 off gas card deals are awesome! Have definitely made use of those :-)
