I hit Publix last night and found a number of fun deals! The big thing to look out for is a new display and tearpad in the personal care section.  Grab 5 participating items and you’ll get a $5 Publix gift card free at checkout!  It baffled me at first, I kept reading it to see how to submit the rebate… then it dawned on me that it was an instant offer!!  It got even better at checkout — rather than triggering a gift card the coupon took off $5 instantly!!  I’ll gladly take the $5 off right then!!

I wish I had remembered to grab prices on all the items.  Keep in mind though that none of the items are on sale right now and the coupon/offer is good through 5/1.  It is probably best to grab the coupon will you can find it and wait to see if any of these come on sale in the next few weeks.

Don’t forget to check out the full list of sales in this week’s Publix Weekly Ad and the Publix Dollar or Less Deals for the lowest prices!

      I was so excited to see the tear pad this morning too! Plus my publix had peelies on the soft soap for .30 and .50 on the tooth pastes high doubled. Mine did issue the gift card instead of applying to my order but I know I’ll be back next week! Oh, and does anyone know if there is a limit per household on this or if bi-lo would match the deal (but with a bi-lo card of course)?

      • stacy

        the last time they had these coupons i got a ton of free gift cards, but i did only use one per transaction. I do not have bi-lo near me so i am not sure about it being accepted there

    • lapcouponer

    • lapcouponer

      Cannot find target coupon for toothpaste. anybody find it?

    • Lynn

      Found the pads on an end cap on the deodorant/toothpaste aisle in my FL store. Had a lot of the products on the shelf with peelies attached too :)

    • Aimee

      I found a table of feminine care products on clearance today and was able to get two 16 packs of U by Kotex pads for my daughter for 25 cents each!! They were on sale for $2.75 and I had 2 $2 off coupons and a $1.00 store coupon! I have been trying to stock up when they are on sale and I am glad I had held onto these coupons! Plus the store coupon expires today! Yeah!

    • LuvthisStuff

      I still can’t find these

    • Beth

      sometimes they tell me that they need a store coupon for each item now but I am going to print out the picture of the coupon on the tear pad and make sure the number is visible. I know they will take it. Not all stores have the tear pads but the LU# still works!

    • Beth

      btw, does anyone happen to have the LU# for this deal? I can’t read it on the picture
