The end of the school year is quickly approaching, that means now would be a good time to start stocking up on extra items for the kiddos this summer.

Winn-Dixie is the store to shop at to help get you prepared and ready! Winn-Dixie has hundreds of BOGO deals, I mean that literally! Advertised and unadvertised BOGO deals every week! There is no other store in our area that has more BOGO deals than Winn-Dixie. If the BOGO deals aren’t enough incentive, they also reduce the prices of their meats daily, by placing dollar off coupons on their meats. That includes ground beef, steaks, ribs, pork chops, chicken, ALL of them.

I’m sure some of you already have your keys in your hand, ready to head out to Winn-Dixie, here’s a few BOGO items that might come in handy. Laundry detergent, paper plates, pasta, storage bags, bread & Tyson chicken nuggets. Winn-Dixie canned vegetables are also on sale for $0.50 a can! While you’re there look for their LOW prices, they have certain items in the store priced at a ridiculous low price. Their 4 pound bags of sugar are only $2.00 and bread is $1.00! Just look for the signs!

At some point during the summer, parents and the kiddos are going to need a break, so here are two places to consider.

Chik-Fil-A (The Tyndall Parkway location) Every Tuesday night is family night. When you dine in, kids eat free with purchase of a combo. the cow comes around and gives away coloring items or crafts. Remember every Thursday in April you can also get FREE breakfast at this location only! They also offer a military discount!

Pink Pelican Ice Cream Shop (Edgewater Shoppes, PCB, FL) – They have a lot of different ice cream Flavors to choose from and they offer a military discount! Almost everybody loves ice cream!

Have fun shopping for BOGO’s, remember you can use coupons to help offset your costs!

Shopping App!

Shopping and Rebate Apps

I hear from a lot of people that they really wish they could use coupons, but they don’t know where to find them, how to get them or if they have coupons, they forget to take them to the store. I have great news for you, shopping apps are the perfect tools for you to start saving money. No more worrying about leaving coupons at home now! We always have our cell phones, iPads and tablets with us, now we are going to put them to work!

I’m going to list my favorite shopping and rebate app. Please use coupons if you have them to maximize your savings!

Shopping/Rebate Apps: owners of apps partner with retailers to offer deals (cash back and gift cards) on items like groceries, clothing and pet products. Why not get compensated for what we already do anyway…SHOP!


CLICK HERE TO JOIN IBOTTA! – This is my absolute favorite rebate app!
Ibotta is a free mobile application that you can download on your smartphone or tablet. Once you have the App installed, follow the simple steps below to start earning.

1. Choose your offers: When you open Ibotta, you’ll see a selection of offers in our Product Gallery. Choose a product and complete one or more of the tasks below the offer. The more tasks you complete, the more pending credit you will add to your account. Unlock these earnings by purchasing the product in a supported store.

Task Examples: Share on Twitter, Facebook, Take a poll, etc…

***Offers expire so don’t forget to redeem them before they’re gone!

2. Go Shopping: After completing tasks, items will be added to your Checklist. Buy these products at any of the 50+ retailers where Ibotta works. Be sure to check the Store Extras section to find additional offers that are only available at select stores.
