How to get a whole Publix sub, chips and drink for $6.67, and other coupon deals in Tampa Bay Sept. 13-19

If you need to grab a quick dinner tonight or want to plan for lunch tomorrow, do I got a Pub sub deal for you.

Pub subs — or Publix’s sub sandwiches for those unfamiliar — are on sale this week for $5.99. This includes Boar’s Head lunch meat and the beloved chicken tender sub. But this is the weekly deals column, so you know I got a coupon for you, too.

Here’s how it works: the $5.99 sub deal, which saves you $2, goes until Sept. 19. But Publix’s green flier (you get this in your Sunday Tampa Bay Times) has a $1 off a whole sub meal that’s only good until end of day Friday.

Combining the offers means you get a whole sub, a drink and a bag of chips for $6.67. Pretty amazing savings.

So while we’re on the topic of Publix, here are this week’s best deals from the green banner grocer store.

Publix

Rebate app Ibotta has a deal up now that makes stocking up on Heinz mayo and ketchup a steal. Right now, Heinz mayo is on BOGO, or buy one get one. Ibotta also has a rebate where you get $4.50 back if you buy Heinz mayo and ketchup. So if you grab two mayos and one ketchup and then use the receipt to get your $4.50 rebate through the app, you’re going to be saving about $10 total. Basically buy one, get two free.

Another "free" item using Ibotta rebates: the Perfect Bar. I can’t speak to its alleged perfection, but Ibotta will give you $2.25 back for buying the protein bar at Publix, where right now they’re on sale for $2. (Yes, that means you can make a quarter.)

If you’re a dog parent and like to treat your pup to Purina Beggin’ bacon strips, buy them this week. Publix has marked the 25-ounce bag down to $9.99, a savings of $2.48. Then you can get another $3 off if you held onto your SmartSource coupon insert from the last Sunday Tampa Bay Times in August. That’s $6.99 for something that’s usually more than $12.

For the final big-savings deal at Publix, here’s how to get $1 full-size Colgate toothpaste:

The most recent Sunday paper had Publix’s purple flier inside, which has a $2 off two Colgate toothpaste offer. Now, Colgate has a two for $6 deal on the toothpaste brand. In addition, the SmartSource from the end of August has a $2 off two manufacturer’s coupon. If you didn’t hold on to those coupons, there’s another for $1 off from this past Sunday you can use.

Other deals you can pair with coupons:

BOGO on Cheerios with a coupons.com $1 off two General Mills cereals; three for $4 "YQ" (a new Yoplait yogurt) with a 30-cent off digital coupon; and Finish dishwasher detergent is on BOGO with a $2 off Publix purple flier coupon.

Winn-Dixie

(Note: All Winn-Dixie sale prices require you have a Southeastern Grocers SEG Rewards Card.)

I seek out cheap ice cream. It’s a problem — especially because I’m lactose intolerant. It’s just so good, and W-D is where you can get the good stuff cheap this weekend.

They have Häagen-Dazs ice cream on sale for buy two, get one free. That’s a $5.89 savings alone. But pair that with the coupons.com printable coupon for $2 off three Nestle ice creams? That means each of those pricey 14-ounce containers come out to about $3.25.

If you’re feeling an easy spaghetti and meatball dinner this week, Cooked Perfect frozen meatballs are on BOGO. There’s another coupons.com printable offer for $1 off a bag. That means you’ll two bags for just $2.49.

Chewy granola bars also are on BOGO. The most recent RetailMeNot (that’s the one that comes mid-week separate from the newspaper) has 75 cents off two coupon.

Domino bags of sugar also are on sale for two for $4 — the most recent Sunday paper had 40 cents off a bag. Ajax soap is $1.99, and the same Sunday paper had a coupon for 25 cents off.

Other deals using digital coupons matched with sales on the W-D app: Pop Secret popcorn, Special K bars and drinks, Pillsbury cinnamon rolls and crescent rolls, Pam spray and Gerber squeeze pouches.
