Publix: Grab these 5 deals using the Ibotta Cash Back App

While everyone was at the new Publix in Moody last night getting milk and bread, I was there for Buy 2 Get 1 Free 2L Cokes and some Ibotta rebates!

Here are 5 deals at Publix you can grab that will give you a total of $4.50 cash back from Ibotta!  And don’t forget, these will also count toward your January bonuses which will give you even more money!   Don’t know what Ibotta is?  Read more about it HERE and sign up now your first rebate redemption will earn you a bonus $10!

And don’t over look these rebates!  I admit, I’ve scrolled past them because of the beer but when I accidentally clicked on one, it says NO BEER PURCHASE REQUIRED.  Of course, they would like you to purchase the beer and maybe you will BUT to get the rebate you are not required too!  That makes this a HIGH VALUE rebate on Jack Links Jerky which is also BOGO at Publix this week (thru 1/26)!

Jack Links Jerky BOGO $6.39 (makes 1  pack just $3.20)
$2.00 cash back from Ibotta

Use MobiSave to save more on your Groceries

mobisavebannerThere is a new cash back app making a splash called MobiSave.  You can sign up for it here.  Or you can just download it from the App Store on your phone and sign up for an account from your phone.

You can use this app at Walmart, Publix, Winn-Dixie, Fred’s, Food Giant, Dollar General and any other grocer/convenience store!  As long as the retailer carries the product the offer is for and prints you an itemized receipt after purchase, you can redeem cash back from MobiSave!

I’m actually really excited about this one.  It has some good offers, it’s easy to use and you get PAID after every submission.  You don’t have to wait to cash out after reaching a certain amount.  Scan your receipt, select your offers and the money goes to your Paypal account no matter the amount!

Here are a few tips to get you started:

  • Shop anywhere!  (Any store that prints an itemized receipt!)
  • Be sure to select your offers before you check out.  (The directions state that you can select offers as you shop in the store but you need to have them all checked before you checkout).
  • Allow MobiSave to access your iPhone camera so it can snap your receipts.
  • Take clear snaps of your entire receipt.
  • Payments will be sent directly to Paypal in less than 24 hours!
  • If you do not have a PayPal account, you will receive an email from PayPal after your first MobiSave submission with easy directions to help you open an account.

Here’s what I’ve learned after using it for awhile:


  • Offers come and go quickly so if you see something you think you might use, tap it to save it your “My Offers”.  This saves it for you!  Now you don’t have to worry about an offer being gone before you can get to the store and use it.  Note that “My Offers” carts reset on Mondays at 2 am est.  So if you select something one week but don’t redeem it, it will be cleared out of your offers on Monday.  IF there are any of that particular offer still available you can easily re-add it to your offers and redeem it before the next Monday.
  • If you add something to “My Offers” and you really want it – don’t uncheck it!  I learned this the hard way and missed out on two cash back offers because I unchecked them and when I went to put them back in “My Offers” they were gone.
  • Just because you have an offer in your cart you don’t have to redeem it.  You can redeem some without redeeming all.  This is where I messed up and lost out on offers.  I thought when I got ready to redeem my receipt from one store that I could only have the offers in my cart for that receipt.  So I took some out.  But that’s not the case at all.  After you snap your receipt, it will asked you which of your saved offers are on that receipt.  You select the ones that are and the rest stay saved in your cart.

Publix Coupon Policy | For Moody and Pell City Publix Stores


I think the general consensus around town is HOORAY for the new Publix in Moody!  I was there bright and early the first morning it opened.

For a lot of us, we get our Publix fix by going elsewhere but for many of you, shopping at Publix may be new.  Here is Publix’s coupon policy.  And watch for lots of Publix deals and coupons on the blog and Facebook page.

  • If you are expecting or have a child under two you can sign up for their Baby Club. (if you have children between 2 and 4 you can sign up for Publix Preschool Pals). Being a Baby Club member will get you special discounts and more coupons.
  • Publix allows you stack store coupons and manufacturer coupons(What is “stacking coupons”? )
  • Publix doubles all manufacturer coupons up to 50c everyday!
  • You are allowed to use a coupons on Buy One Get One Free items. For example if Kellogg’s cereals are Buy One Get One Free and I have two $1 off coupons for Kellogg’s, I can use them.
  • BOGO items ring up half price so you can just get one item and still get the sale price.
  • Overage is allowed. Meaning that if I have a coupon for $2 off a product that’s only $1.95, $2 will still be taken off of my total.
  • Publix will not accept percent-off items or percent-off total order coupons
  • Publix will accept only coupons for identical merchandise sold in its stores.
  • Manager approval is needed for individual coupons above $5.
  • Dollars-off total order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor coupon per order.
  • The order total must be equal to or greater than the total purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented
  • Limit of 8 coupons for the same item.
  • Be sure to check out Publix’s Digital Coupons.  Load your coupons right to your account – enter your phone number on the keypad and checkout and your coupons will be applied!  Just know that Digital Coupons will not double.

Publix accepts competitors coupons.  A “competitor” varies by store.

The Publix in Pell City accepts Winn-Dixie and Dollar General coupons.

The Publix in Moody only accepts Dollar General coupons.  (For my Winn-Dixie coupons, I use them at that Publix store on Deerfoot Parkway in Trussville because it’s closer than Pell City.)
