The best deal this week at Publix Supermarkets is one vegetarians will like. [JUSTINE GRIFFIN, File, 2017]

Sometimes, the coupon gods align. And, man, that's beautiful because everyone loves so-cheap-it's-almost-free stuff.

Vegetarians rejoice: This week's steal of a deal is for you. Publix has Quorn "chick'n" nuggets and patties on BOGO (buy one, get one) this week. Rebate app Ibotta has a $3 offer, meaning you can get that cash back after your purchase. As if it couldn't get any sweeter, Quorn has a $1 off coupon you can print off its website.

If you get the most expensive Quorn chick'n at $4.85, you're getting each box for about 43 cents.

I'm sorry all my finds can't be that good, but let's get started on this week in deals.


Yes, whole Pub subs are still on sale. The $5.99 deal lasts until Sept. 26 (news of which pretty much broke the internet last week). Bonus: the new Publix green flier that came with your Sunday Tampa Bay Times has another $1 off a meal coupon. If you get the chips and Publix lemonade combo with your whole sub using the coupon, you're spending just $6.27.

Inside the same green flier, you'll find a coupon for BOGO on Cascadian Farm cereals. has a printable $1 off two coupon, as well. Ibotta also comes in clutch (again) with another $1 rebate on the cereal.

Pro tip: If you lost your green flier, you can usually get them inside the store from customer service.

We're still over a week away from October, but Publix has BOGO offers on pumpkin spice everything, including Pumpkin Spice Cheerios, which I didn't even know existed.

SmartSource has a buck off three General Mills cereals if you're planning to stock up. Pumpkin spice Milano cookies, Pepperidge Farm swirl bread and International Delight coffee creamer also are BOGO.

Ken's salad dressing is on BOGO, too. The SmartSource coupon going back three weeks has a coupon for $1 of two. (Winn-Dixie had this deal when these coupons first came out.)

If you didn't use last week's RetailMeNot Quaker chewy granola bar coupon at Winn-Dixie, they're now on BOGO at Publix. The coupon is for 75 cents off two boxes.

Pillsbury crescent rolls are on sale for three for $6. The SmartSource in Sunday's Times has $1 off three coupons and if you want to try the Sweet Hawaiian flavor, those have a 50-cent rebate on Ibotta. Winn-Dixie has a similar deal, but no Ibotta offer.

Nature Valley granola bars are on BOGO, too, and while you can clip this coupon, it also is on


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

Ragu pasta sauce and Mueller's pasta are on BOGO. (Publix has a similar deal, too.) The SmartSource from last week has 55 cents off two boxes. There's also a $1 off any Ragu sauce that expires on Sept. 23.

There is a buy two, get one free deal on Clorox products. The SmartSource from last week has $1 off two Clorox products.

Borden cheese is on BOGO and Sunday's Times SmartSource has a 55 cents off one coupon.

Halo Top ice cream, the somewhat pricey but low-cal pints, are on BOGO. Ibotta has a 75-cent rebate you can use at Winn-Dixie.

Red Baron pizza is marked down to $3.28. Ibotta has $1 rebate.

Per usual, W-D also pulled a bunch of manufacturer coupons on its app to save you time clipping:

General Mills cereals are two for $5 with another $1 off; Krispy and Zesty saltines also are two for $5 with an added $1 off; with a digital coupon, Libby's canned and pouch veggies are five for $3.
