Just like anything, you really can’t expect the Publix weekly ad to be incredible every single week. Sometimes, like anything else, the weekly circular has its moments when we can look at it and not come away with building the type of shopping list we want to. When this sort of thing happens, it’s time to put things into Plan B. Don’t despair if you look at a Publix weekly flyer and you don’t see the things that you normally would expect in order to save the maximum amount of money on your shopping trip.
Start With the Publix Deals
The first thing you should do when the weekly ad does not go your way is to start taking a look at the sales and deals and discounts instead of just the buy one get one free offers. For example, taking a look at the present weekly ad, I really did not see that many BOGO offers available. However, as I dug deeper into the Publix ad, I could see that the porterhouse or T-bone steaks were on sale for $7.99 a pound. This is a full three dollars a pound less than the regular price, which is pretty substantial. As I continued, I could see that the Hillshire Farm deli select lunch meats were on sale for three for $10. With these, I was able to save another three dollars off my total purchase. As I turn the page of the Publix weekly ad I could see that the Tropicana pure premium orange juice bottles were two for six dollars. This would give me another two dollars in savings.
Anyway, as you can see, even if there are not that many buy one get one free offers on a Publix weekly ad, you can still make up for it in a big way by looking at the actual special deals and digging in a little bit deeper while you’re trying to construct your shopping list.
Even Publix every now and then will have an off day just like anything else. But it’s our responsibility to ourselves and our families to still take advantage of all the deals and discounts available on that Publix weekly ad.
