Some coupons can be used as money makers – overage to applied toward your order total.
Know your moneymakers! Publix allows overage from coupons to be applied toward your order total. (Some have even received overage back in cash, but YMMV on that) What does this mean for you? Simple..big savings at the checkout and isn’t that why we are all here?
The first thing you must do is let go of your coupon inhibitions, you have to free your mind when it comes to coupon use. By freeing your mind, I mean, try not to be brand loyal, and understand you may purchase things you would not normally buy, items that will make money to reduce your out of pocket expense toward your groceries.
I want you to look for 2 fliers when you walk into Publix, one is a Green Advantage Buy (some CWI ambassadors call it a GAB) and a Yellow Advantage Buy flier (also known as a YAB).
Post updated to mention the YAB is not yellow anymore.
These fliers are valuable resources for purchasing items that will allow you to use the overage to apply to other things in your cart that you may not have coupons for, such as meat and produce.
Let me give you an example of a couple of products I am talking about:
$5/2 Os-Cal, Citrucel, Ecotrin, Tagamet, Debrox, Gaviscon, Phazyme, Sominex, or Gly-Oxide in the GAB
$ 2 Manufacturer coupons for Phayzyme and Sominex can be printed here and your purchase would look like this:
(2) Phazyme or (2) Sominex @3.49 each
Use (1) $5/2 GAB
Use (2) $2/1 MC in the link I provided = $2.02 Moneymaker!!!
(Who says coupons are just for junk and processed food?) The best part is, assisted living facilities would love to take the over the counter meds off your hands. We regularly donate ours.
How do you feel, do you think you could do this?
