Time to stock up on some soup!!
**UPDATED 2/20: $2 off Meat coupon does not list soup 🙁
Most of you have heard the rumble about the VIVA ITALIA sale at Publix that starts this week. For those of us who have been couponing for some time, this is the time of year that we stock up on Progresso Soups and Canned Veggies. Generally, the sales will get better each week throughout the promotion. We haven’t seen fantastic coupons come out yet, but there are a few nice coupons that will make the deals pretty decent right away.
LOOK FOR THIS DISPLAY IN YOUR STORE:
You will find PUBLIX COUPONS on this display that will be used throughout the promotion:
$1.00 off any THREE Pillsbury Refrigerated Bread
$1.00 on any FOUR Hunt’s Tomatoes 14.5 oz
$1.00 on any TWO Green Giant Frozen Vegetables 7-10 oz
$1.00 off any FIVE Hunt’s Sauce, Paste or Puree (no size restrictions)
Save $2.00 on Chicken or Publix Mild or Hot Pork Sausage wyb FOUR participating items (no list just shows: Progresso Bread Crumbs, Progresso Broth, Progresso Artisan Soup, Progresso Cooking Sauce, Hunt’s Diced or Crushed Tomatoes)
I thought it might be helpful for me to break down a simple deal that you can do which includes ONLY the PUBLIX COUPONS and a couple of printable coupons that are still available as I am writing this post. You can modify this as much as you want, this is just a starting point to show you how you can easily save 75% right away:
BUY FOUR Progresso Soups – BOGO $1.97
BUY TWO Muellers Pot Size Pasta – BOGO $1.57
USE TWO $.50/2 Progresso Printable Coupons HERE or from 1/5 Smart Source Insert
USE TWO $.75/1 Muellers Printable Coupon HERE or from 1/26 Smart Source Insert
USE ONE $2.00 off Chicken or Sausage wyb Four Progresso PUBLIX COUPON from Viva Italia display not a match
YOU PAY $3.01 TOTAL OOP (Out of Pocket) for $12 worth of product including soup and Pasta, that is a 75% savings!
To MAXIMIZE your savings, you might want to do what we call a MEGA DEAL, where you purchase a larger quantity of items to stock up. When doing mega deals, we like to use a $5 off $30 coupon from a book called the Enjoy the City Books. This is like $5 FREE MONEY right off the top. If you don’t have one yet, no worries, you will get them in time (just add $5 more to your total), but for this explanation I will include it to show you how it works. Check out this idea:
SIMPLE MEGA DEAL:
BUY THIRTY Progresso Soups – BOGO $1.99
USE ONE $5.00/$30.00 Winn Dixie Coupon (Enjoy the City Books)
USE FIFTEEN $.50/2 Progresso Printable Coupons HERE or HERE or from 1/5 Smart Source Insert or BUY HERE (this promo will be a couple of weeks, plenty of time to order coupons)
YOU PAY $17.35 for all of it!! *That’s THIRTY cans of soup worth $60 for just $17.35, that is about a 70% savings!!!
NOTE: If you have the $10/$40 Sweetbay Coupon from the 2/16 paper, you could add other items and save even more!
This is a great way to stock up your pantry for under $10 and have some meat in your freezer! I will be doing more easy / newbie scenarios so keep watching the page!
