I wanted to use my last BOGO Sun Drop coupons today, before they expired. Yesterday I went to a different Publix than I usually go to, and they only had the Diet Sun Drop soda. I try not to let my kids drink diet drinks, so I passed and hoped that my regular Publix would have the regular Sun Drop in stock.
So, after spending the morning at the basketball court with the boys, I made a quick run in to Publix to check. My regular Publix only had the Diet Sun Drop out too, but contrary to the store yesterday, my Publix store actually had a bunch in the back. I also picked up more free Lifesavers, and I was able to find the free Bush Grilling beans, which were a Publix money maker.
Everything turned out perfectly, as I wanted to pick up a second gallon of orange juice. First of all the orange juice was only $3.99 at this Publix, it was $4.99 at the Publix store yesterday, so I saved an instant $1. Then the Publix money maker on the Bush grilling beans took care of all the tax plus two extra cents on the orange juice.
So, instead of paying $4.99 for the orange juice yesterday, I ended up paying $3.97, and I got 10 bottles of soda, 5 bags of Lifesavers and 4 cans of beans as a bonus.
