      e-coupon and store coupon, didn’t know u could use two of their coupons together always thought it had to be store, manufacturer? I know Bi-Lo and Kroger won’t let u do that!

      • DJ

        Publix will accept one manufacturer Q and one store Q. The eCoupons are considered manufacturer Qs.

    • DJ

      The Publix eCoupon is for a twin pack of Colgate toothpaste. Is the sale also for the twin pack?

      • Zy

        I was wondering the same thing

    • croberts

      I was told that the Publix e-coupon are like manufacturer coupons. My Publix in Charleston does not let me use manufacturer coupons along with the e-coupons. They only let me use store coupons along with the e-coupons.

      • VP22

        E-coupons are not “like” manufacture coupons. They actually are manufacture coupons. You just electronically clip them instead of physically clipping them. That’s why you can only use them once (I wish you could use them more than once) and why you can only use them a store/competitor coupon.

    • Ken

      How many can you purchase with the e-coupon? Is there a max?

      • VP22

        1. It will only work 1 time no matter how many you buy.

    • Lorraine Burris

      new to publix how many of the same coupons can you use example they have hormel breakfast dinners i have 20 coupons for$1.00 off each one. can i buy all 20 and use my coupons in 1 transaction

      • VP22

        That will depend on your store. Some stores set limits on how many can be purchased and some don’t. Also, I can’t speak for your store but mine does not keep a huge supply of those on the shelf. It might help if you ask your store if they will special order some for you. That way you can have the number you want and there will still be some on the shelves.

      I’m new to Publix and to their e-coupons. How do you redeem the coupons? Do you use your phone app or just print the list of ecoupons?

      • DJ

        I log in to my Publix account online and “clip” the e-coupons that I want. Then, at the store I just enter my phone number in the key pad as the cashier is ringing up my items.

    • Shannon

      Did anyone answer the question on one coupon being for a twin pack and the other for a single?

    • Madorsey

      The ecoupon is for twin packs only. I was starting to get excited about free toothpaste!!!

    • Dee Dee

      This is for a twin pack only.

    • Tracy

      $2 Colgate coupon is for twin pack only. Won’t work for this scenario.

      • Rebecca

        I wish this post could be updated because I just went in under the mistaken assumption that the e-coupon would apply, and it didn’t. Neither I nor customer service noticed the twin pack notation on the coupon, so they manually entered a $2 discount, but now I feel bad because I got a discount I shouldn’t have (and because I pushed them for it). I’m all about doing things fairly, so I wish I had seen these comments before I made the trip with a baby for the sole purpose of supposedly free toothpaste! Nothing I can do about it now :-/ But I appreciate the information because now I know that there probably isn’t anything wrong with getting the e-coupons to apply. Next time I go in, I’ll but two extra Easter Seals thingies :)

    • Brittney

      I found a $2/2 manuf. coupon blinkie in store so I used that and got 2 tubes for $2. If I would’ve had the publix coupon for $1 off I could’ve gotten them free but my store was out of the flyers!

      • Brittney

        I guess I should’ve mentioned they were on sale for $1.99 also so buying 2 tubes cost 4$ then I got 2$ off so that’s how.

    • Rebecca

      Oh, my! The e-coupon is definitely for one (1) TWIN pack. That’s why my e-coupon did not apply when I checked out just now in my Charleston Publix. The cashier tried to tell me that the e-coupons were Publix coupons, but I knew better, so we went to customer service. CS knew they were manufacturer coupons but didn’t know why the register recognized my account but didn’t apply the coupon, so they manually gave me $2 off, and all I had to pay was 7 cents in tax. Now that I see all these entries, I feel like I ripped them off :( I totally didn’t mean to, and now I feel like a jerk. I guess I’ve spent a lot of money in Publix over the last 8 years, so I’m sure I’ve made up those $2.

    • kevin

      Yes, the $2 coupon is only for a twin pack, priced $5.79. So no free toothpaste here

    • Colleen

      This coupon is not even available down in S. Florida; it’s for Optic White only and it is only $1.50.
