Publix: New Twist on the Ragu BOGO + B2G1 + Dreamfield’s Pasta

Lots of folks are posting about the Ragu and Mueller’s Pasta deals going on at Publix this week (good through 11/24/11).

Here’s a new twist.  I’m going to shop for this deal today and buy Dreamfield’s. We recently tried this pasta and love it.  It has more protein and fiber than typical store pasta and it looks and tastes just like “regular” pasta.


Here’s the new Dreamfield’s twist:

Buy 8 Ragu on BOGO @ $2.29/2
Buy 4 Dreamfield’s Pasta  @$1.66 ea.
-Use the Ragu B2G1 Coupon for Buy 2 Ragu, Get 1 Pasta up to $1.75 Off (4 coupons)
Cost = $9.16 for 8 Ragu
Cost = $6.64 for 4 Dreamfield’s
Subtotal = $15.80
Minus:  $7 for the Ragu Coupon (rings up at $1.75 each)
Unfortunately we can’t use the Dreamfield’s coupons because the pastas are already attached to the Ragu B2G1 coupon.  But it is still a great deal for the upgraded Dreamfield’s pasta.
If you prefer Mueller’s Pasta or want a bit more for your money, try this Publix Deal (good through 11/24/11)
Buy 8 Ragu on BOGO @ $2.29/2
Buy 8 Mueller’s on BOGO @$1.53/2
-Use the Ragu B2G1 Coupon for Buy 2 Ragu, Get 1 Pasta up to $1.75 Off (4 coupons)
-Use Mueller’s .55/1 Coupon from their website (4 of these)
Cost = $9.16 for 8 Ragu
Cost = $6.12 for 8 Mueller
Subtotal = $15.28
Minus:  $7 with Ragu coupon (each rings up at $1.75 off)
Minus:  $2.20 for the Mueller’s coupons (4 of them)
Mangia !

Coupons & Aliens/Extraterrestrials – My Recent Alien Abduduction

Where have I been for the last 12 days?  Abducted by aliens (the extraterrestrial type).  Boy-Oh-Boy, do I have some stories to share with you, especially about what the Extraterrestrial Aliens think about couponing.

But for now, let’s leave it at that while I process the whole out-of-this world experience.  At least I’m back in time for all the holiday deals and steals.

Happy beginning of Thanksgiving week.



PUBLIX: 81¢ for Tai Pei Entrees – Through 11-11-11 – Extra 90¢ Off – Extreme Savings


Save 71% – Extreme Savings
$4.86 for 6 Tai Pei Entree’s at Publix – Florida
Deal Ends 11-11-11

Today I picked up as part of my short & sweet visit to Publix 6 Tai Pei Asian entrees from the freezer section.  It wasn’t until I was reviewing my register receipt at home that I noticed that the Publix coupon was deducting more than I expected.

  • Bought 6 Tai Pei frozen entrees at $2.79 each, regular price = $16.74
  • Used 6 Manufacturer coupons for $0.75 each from SS 10/2/11 = subtract $4.50
  • Used 2 Publix yellow advantage flyer coupons for Tai Pei, Buy 2 Get 1 Free = subtract $5.58

But here’s the BONUS SAVINGS.  The Publix yellow advantage flyer coupons subtracted $3.69 each instead of $2.79, which is the actual cost of the items.  So that’s like having a bonus (or third) coupon for 90¢ off 3 Tai Pei entrees.

 Final Price = 81¢ Each

Publix: Kashi Deal – 50¢ Ending 11/9/11 – Extreme Savings W/Printable Coupon

To All Kashi Fans – It’s Back – 50¢ Kashi Frozen Entrees

Get Your $2 Off 1 Kashi Anytime – Print at Home

One of my favorite coupons has a really good supermarket match-up ending 11/9/11 at Publix Florida stores.  Kashi frozen entrees will be $2.50.  Match that with the $2.00 off 1 Kashi item coupon from Recyclebank and you’ve got yourself one great deal.  Kashi’s entrees are preservative-free with higher nutritional value than most of the other popular brands.  Sprinkle a bit of grated Romano cheese over the Pesto Primavera, and… Bellisimo.

And here’s what makes this deal even better, the $2.00 off 1 Kashi product coupons at RecycleBank are currently only 75 points.  I usually get them for 125 points.  If your new to RecycleBank – it’s all free, all the time, you read some very brief statements or answer short questions that are meant to raise your awareness about recycling and being good to the environment.  10 minutes should be more than enough time for you to get enough points for 2 of these coupons.
