Get $15 Overage For Gift and Gas Card at Publix

Are you getting your gas card at Publix this week? I hope so. Soon after we left the Perdido store, my hubby got gas at the Shell station across Mc Donald's. It's $2.75/gallon (only 2 cents more than Wal-Mart). And you can use the promotion on the American Express Gift Card (AMEX) to get another $5 overage... intrigued?

Here's how it works:
First Transaction:
Buy $50 AMEX gift card
Use $10 off $50 AMEX gift card*
*back cover of sales ad or PRINT. Go to the last tab on top of the weekly ad. It says "Coupons" or click from the left side bar.
Pay $40 + $4.95 activation fee

Here is the tricky part:
Second Transaction
Shop for 1 hour 10 minutes (that's how long it takes to activate the card) or shop the next day
Get $25 of groceries & a $50 Shell Gas Card
Use $10 off $50 Gas Card (towards end of sales ad or PRINT)
Use any coupons for your groceries
Use the $50 AMEX card to pay for gas card
Pay the remaining balance, if any, with cash or something else
=$10 overage on gas card to go to grocery item balance

I had some FREE product coupons mailed to me and a raincheck on the Ronzoni Garden Delight, putting my total after coupons to only about $4 plus $40 for the gas card- which all went on the AMEX card!

$5.99 Energizer Lithium 4x (Green Ad sale)
*use $1 MQ & $2 Target PRINT= $2.99 each
BOGO Scotch Gift Wrap or Magic Tape $2.79 (use two $1 from Winter Family Savings booklet)
BOGO Pillsbury Cake Mix $1.79 (not great, no coupon, but I want a cake!)
$1.99 Keebler Peanut Butter or Cheese crackers (price cut from $2.70)
Also Laughing Cow wedges are $2.19 (use $1/1 MQ tearpad)


  1. Hi,
    I shop at there too!so exciting to find a local bloger!!!yep. ;)

    I've seen peelie on items but don't find a booklet, blinkie or tearpad in the Perdido store.
    Is it just me??
    so only the reason,go to other location to see sometimes...

  2. No, it's not just you. Since Perdido is new, it takes them a while to get the booklets. You can find the Winter Family Savings booklet in the carousel where they have the Yellow/Green and Grocery store flyers. We had a lot of All The Trimmings too, but they're all gone.

    Mobile Hwy has more booklets- ask at Customer Service.
