policy changes

Heads up Publix shoppers! A change to the Publix Coupon Policy is going start 10/1 with a grace period until 10/18.  I thought I would let you know about them so you can be aware and there won’t be any surprises next time you shop!

Keep in mind that many of the “changes” are really just them spelling out things that most stores wouldn’t have done anyway.  So don’t panic here.

Probably the biggest change for folks would be only (8) of the same coupon can be redeemed per day and if you have an overage money back will now be given on a Publix gift card rather than in cash.  For the normal shopper nothing here is scary.  You probably aren’t buying more than 8 of anything in one trip, but for hard core shoppers this might cause issues.  I know in our area they were already limiting deals in most stores, so it’s not any different.

Here is a list of all other policies:

Coupons will only be accepted for identical items.
You can use a maximum of 2 coupons per item – a manufacturer coupon and either a Publix store coupon or competitor coupon.
Digital manufacturer coupons can not be combined with paper manufacturer coupons on the same item.
Percentage off items or percentage off total order coupons will not be accepted.
Limit of 8 identical coupons can be redeemed per day.
Coupons that Publix determines to be printed incorrectly (missing coupon details) will not be accepted.
Coupons shown on a mobile phone or device will not be accepted.

Coupons that appear to be copied will not be accepted.
Each BOGO item is considered a separate purchase.
Individual coupons above $5 require manager approval.
You may only use one Publix or competitor dollar off total order coupon per day per household.
You may only get 1 rain check per item per day per household.
Any overage due will be given in Publix gift cards and not in cash.
Rainchecks will not be issued for Publix, manufacturers or competitor coupons.
