    Momoffi - not sure if your WM will price match Publix. It's up to each store which ones they will price match deals from. You'll have to ask your specific store.

    Thanks for the additional deals, Savvysaver!

  • Savvysaver Dec 18, 2014

    Betty Crocker cookie mix is BOGO for $1.29 and there was a .75/1, making it 55 cents!!

  • Savvysaver Dec 18, 2014

    There's $1/1 Publix coupon for the Hummus in their holiday booklet, making it free when you use the $1/1 printable and $1/1 Publix.

  • Savvysaver Dec 18, 2014

    What zip code is the Frosted Mini Wheats coupon under

    I live in FV and I've been to Publix 3 times. It's been a wonderful experience each time! The employees are super friendly and helpful. They always take your groceries out to your car and when they do they give you 1 Publix coupon for a free item. One time it was for OJ and the last time it was for free bagels. The deals are definitely worth the time if you have lots of coupons, especially since they'll take 8 of the same coupons, instead of 3 like most stores do.

    Want to get that deal on Crisco oil as well, but store is pretty far. Will walmart in raleigh price match that deal? Dont know how far the store they would match.

  • Faye Prosser -WRAL Smart Shopper Dec 17, 2014

    Savvysaver - the Crisco coupon from the 11/2 insert is not good on the regular oil, unfortunately. Only good on olive oil, shortening or spray. If you know of another one good on the vegetable oil, please let us know! :-)

    RFB: I don't live nearby either, but happened to be in the Cary/Morrisville area the week they opened there, so I stopped in check it out. They had extra employees there from other stores that week, and I must have been politely greeted by a dozen of them during the ~30 minutes I was there. They went way above and beyond in the "welcome" category. And of course a new store is shiny and tidy. The specials were great as well.

    Others who are able to shop there more regularly will need to chime in to say if the shopping pleasure continues long term. Like you, I've heard only good things about Publix. Hopefully the one in N Raleigh will happen for you and others in that area!

    I'm interested to see how folks are liking Publix? I haven't made it out there yet (pretty far for me) but how does it compare to the sales/quality at HT?

    I've heard only great things about Publix (especially from my friends in FL) so either way, I'm hoping they end up building one in N. Raleigh :-)

  • Savvysaver Dec 17, 2014

    There's .35/1 Crisco product, should be good on oil, making it a great deal!
