Most of us have been seeing our Publix weekly ad on a routine basis when we visit the store or in the mail and the funny thing is most of us have never taken the time to learn how to use one correctly in order to maximize our savings potential. Luckily, I hope the following sheds some light on how to make it work in your favor.
Next time you open up your Sunday newspaper go ahead and cut out all the manufacturer coupons you can from the coupon inserts and while you are at it, look for the Publix weekly add that usually accompanies them. If you don’t get the weekly ad in your paper make sure you pick up a copy of the Publix deals on your next trip to the store.
Publix Buy One Get One Free Offers Are a Steal
The first thing you need to do when you open up the circular is take note of the buy one get one free offers commonly referred to as “BOGO” offers. For example, taking a look at the weekly Publix ads this past Sunday in my hometown I picked out a BOGO offer for a few products including Progresso soups, Bertolli pasta sauce which my kids absolutely love, some Cavit Pinot Grigio wine, Buitoni pasta, and the list goes on.
Now if I wanted to, I could probably pick out most of the BOGO offers and eventually my family would consume them over the next four weeks but I am more practical than most, and I want to pick foods and other items that we can readily consume within the next two weeks. Still, with all the items I have picked out I will end up saving over $60.00 for food we will actually eat; this is staggering knowing I can just save this much by using the 2 for 1 free offers, and I have not even begun to think about applying the Publix coupons I have for my purchases.
Which brings us to the next and most important part of these flyers. The biggest advantage you have with them is to stock up. This is commonly referred to as stockpiling your groceries or buying in bulk. Whatever you want to call it, it’s an important part of shopping for groceries because the savings are virtually endless. This type of shopping is Costco and BJ’s selling point as they get customers in to make them feel like if they are stockpiling and saving big-time money!
I prefer to shop using my because I find it contains all the items I really need for my family and I know I go home with a car full of shopping bags containing everything we need for the next two weeks, and for very cheap. I can’t do that at Costco; it ends up costing way too much.
