Bi-Lo and Publix sales!

Bi-Lo has a new coupon policy stating that they will accept competitor’s coupons! I’m sure that, in the weeks to come, they’ll more clearly lay it out, but I’m excited to see how this changes things!! I may have to be going to Bi-Lo a lot more often!

Publix has a new ad out today, and there are a few nice little items. I went this evening and got very few food items, but still had a good trip! It’s nice to stock-up on other items too sometimes!

Bi-Lo trip

You may have noticed that I haven’t bought much meat for the past few weeks in my $25 Weekly Challenge, and that’s because I don’t buy meat, in general, on a weekly basis. I buy it when it’s the best price, stock up, and freeze it for later! So, I promise we’ve been eating meat the past few weeks, it’s just been pulled from my big freezer!!

Well, this week is much different! I bought 30 lbs of meat at Bi-Lo this week! I’ve been under my $25 for the past two weeks, so I’m hoping that I didn’t go over because of this, but I had to get it for this amazing price!

Here’s what I got:

Carolina Pride smoked sausage (polska kielbasa is our favorite!) BOGO $3.99 (x23 in two different trips)
 – $.50/1 coupon (doubled, x23) = $.99 each
Carolina Pride mild breakfast sausage BOGO $3.49 (x7)
 – $.50/1 coupon (doubled, x7) = $.74 each
KC Masterpiece bbq sauce BOGO $2.15 (x1)
 – $1/1 (x1) = $.08
Clearance bag of bananas (about 8 lbs) $1.50
Clearance bag of onions (about 5 lbs) $1.50
Milk $3.08
Southern Home foam plates BOGO $2.28 (x3)

Total before savings = $139.79
TOTAL AFTER = $37.65 or 73% savings

I also got a raincheck for more breakfast sausage because they only had a few at each store. Now, this is more than $25 for my weekly out-of-pocket, but, like I said, I was under for the past couple of weeks, so I’ll re-calculate it all and we’ll see how I come out on the Friday Finals! Either way, I had to stock up on this meat because it’s absolutely rock-bottom pricing (less than $1 per pound!) and sausage is a meat that my husband loves!!

Disclaimer: I didn’t wipe the store out, I went to two different stores, and I assure everyone that I left tons of smoked sausage for everyone else! I did, however, take the last 3 and 4 rolls of breakfast sausage, but I don’t think that’s extreme!

Bi-Lo ad 06/22-06/28

Bi-Lo starts their new ad tomorrow and I am VERY excited about a couple of deals:

Carolina Pride smoked sausage BOGO $3.99
 – $.50/1 from 06/19 SS insert (doubled!)

Carolina Pride pork roll sausage BOGO $3.49

 = $.74 each

KC Masterpiece bbq BOGO $2.15
 – $1/1 from 05/15 SS insert
 = $.07 each

Those are great stock-up prices, so be prepared to get a rain check if you go later in the sale!!

Bi-Lo ad 06/15-06/21

Bi-Lo starts it’s new ad today! There are a few great deals, especially cleaning supplies.

Check it out HERE!

Bi-Lo and Publix match-ups 06/08-06/14

Bi-Lo and Publix start their new ads today. They both have a few great deals! I’ve also heard a rumor that the Bi-Lo ad was printed with a typo saying that they double coupons up to $.99 (which they DON’T) and that Bi-Lo is supposed to be honoring that typo. Now, they certainly don’t have to do it, and I wouldn’t expect them to do it, but it’s worth asking!

Bi-Lo deals 04/20-04/26

Bi-Lo has a new ad starting today! Honestly, it doesn’t seem to have much, but I am tempted to go just to get more of that $.99 sugar! If I do go, I’ll also be scoring some free McCormick gravy mixes (thanks to the awesome Publix coupon booklet that scored me those amazingly cheap frozen veggies and cake mixes!)!

Go HERE to check out the deals!
