Publix PG Chicken Deal

Update:  I’ve learned that this deal is a test promotion in Alabama area stores.  If you live in the participating area, the chicken will be automatically deducted at the register.  As for the rest of us, we can only wait & hope that Publix adopts more chain-wide deals like this.

With all the P&G rebates going on if you weren’t already excited about getting your items at Publix, this promotion should make you giddy! Buy (4) participating P&G items at Publix in one trip between 10/12 and 10/18 and get a FREE Deli Chicken. Y’all are always asking how to save on meat, so don’t pass up the chance for a free rotisserie chicken!

These also match up nicely with the Stocking Spree coupons and the P&G rebates:

$10 off Mail in Rebate WYB $50 in Gillette Venus, Olay, Secret, CoverGirl, Clairol, Pantene, Safeguard, Ivory, Aussie or Herbal Essences products by 10/31

FREE PG Pink Bakeware set Mail in Rebate WYB $25 in participating products

$10 off Mail in Rebate WYB $30 in Olay products

My only complaint is that they picked the most expensive products and only the Charmin and Bounty are on sale this week. I’m not sure if you’ll find a coupon in store, or if the free chicken will automatically get taken off at the register. You may want to print out this page and ask.

(thanks Theresa!)

    • denise

      i’ve found the pampers easy ups on clearence for 2/$10.99 at a few publix’s in atlanta.  unfortunatly i’ve only seen the girls, and i need the boys :)

    • Jennifer

      Can you buy 4 of one item?  At my Publix, I have noticed the Pull-Ups Training Pants are on clearance and I can definitely use them!

      • Jennifer

        I’m a dingbat, Pampers Easy Ups is what I meant! 

    • Jrcouponator

      I am so disappointed.  My mom and I both signed up for the Stocking Spree mailer both times it was offered.  We did so the day it was announced and never received them.  After the first offer passed, I got an email asking my opinions on the program – and I did say I was excited about the program and choices but let them know I didn’t receive.  Now I’ve been through it a second time with no coupons received…

      • Abananaj

        I never received my coupons either!

      • Britt

        after you sign up for it then send you a confirmation email and you actually have to open that email and confirm your request

      • Denise

        I just got mine like yesterday..hopefully they come soon

      • Troop949

        I’d be willing to send mine to you.  I got it in the mail last week, but honestly, I rarely shop at Publix anymore (Kroger is more convenient for me).  I would be happy to give you my SS booklet.  Contact me at troop949 at gmail dot com if you’re interested.

      • Plannergirl1

        Last time the Stocking Spree booklet was offered, I signed up as did my mother and neither of us received the booklet. I called customer relations at coporate headquarters, the phone number is located on the Publix website, and they were very helpful. The woman with whom I spoke took my name and address and mailed me a repalcement. It arrived in about two days. Perhaps, you could do the same.

      • Bamagirl43

        Don’t give up.  I just received mine today.  Also, be aware that it is small and can be lost in junk mail.

    • Carol

      Can you get a second receipt printed?  I want to get the bakeware set and one of the rebates and you need an original receipt with each you.  Will the cashier print a second one when I’m checking out?

      • Julie

        I was wondering about this too.  Does anyone know?

        • Allison

          Yes, just ask the cashier. I have gotten them printed all the time.

      • Chris

        You can have as many receipts printed as you need.  Just be sure to tell the cashier up-front that you need duplicate receipt(s) and they will print them immediately at the end of the transaction.  I got two yesterday without issue but when I asked if there was a limit the customer svc mgr told me they could print as many as I needed – and he knew they were for rebates (so apparently they do this all of the time).  HTH

      • Kat

        The fine print on the bakeware says that you can’t use it with any other offer.  

    • Plannergirl1

      I just spoke with customer relations at Publix Headquarters, I was informed that the promotion is only available at Alabama store locations.

      • Always_3xa_lady

        i called 2 of my stores in sc and they have no idea about this.

      • Suzy Payne

        which promotion are you talking about the chicken or the cookware rebate?  Just asking.

        • Always_3xa_lady

          chicken

    • Di

      How is this so awesome if you have to buy $40 of stuff not on sale.??  Might as well buy a chicken and wait for the other things to be on a real sale! 
      At least thought hey include Charmin – I HATE that these days Rite Aid does not include Charmin or Bounty when they have $10 UP wyb 30 — I’m sad that I miss out on many great deals because I don’t have a baby!! Just venting…

      Thanks for all the great info in the Savers posts and everyone’s comments!!!

    • couponmom

      Be careful if you’re planning on using one of the mentioned rebates.  When the $10 wyb $50 came out I called P&G to see how coupons affected the deal and they told me the $50 has to be AFTER coupons and before taxes.  I have not called about the other two.

    • Suzy Payne

      If your Publix takes Target’s there are Target Qs $1.50 off  2 Glade Candles / if your Publix new sale starts today like mine, the candles are on sale for 2 for $4.  And it’s a P&G item on the list for the cookware.   

      • Sarahh569

        all the publix stores around me say they will not accept target coupons, b/c target is not a full grocery store, they only have a section of groceries so they are not a competitor with a full size grocery store.

        • Sealine75

          Some Publix stores accept Target as a competitor, others do not.  I’m lucky as both of my local Publix stores accept Target and I have gotten some great deals that way!

    • Janna

      The Publix in Goose Creek, SC  would not accept this coupon for the free chicken because the managers said it did not have a look up #.  I decided not to buy anything at publix today.

      • Kmiller1217

        I ran into this in Cumming GA also – we tried even showing them from the link above and she said that unless she could enter a code she couldn’t accept it as a valid coupon. :|

      /12 and 10/18 and get a FREE Deli Chicken IS ONLY FOR  AL STORES.

    • Anonymous

      i dont think this is a good deal for my family.. hope it might help others though! i find the publix “meal deal” with their chicken and 2 sides etc to be a decent deal if we are in a hurry (its like $10-$12 i think).. i know my mom often does this when we come to visit as it feeds my parents and the 3 of of us.. and sometimes they offer a free gallon of tea.

    • Kellylherring

      Man.. I just spend $30 worth of this stuff in CVS last week.  BOO!

    • Rayne0524

      This deal is not a deal at all. You are better off just buying the chicken without all the P&G stuff.

    • Central Florida

      My Publix wouldn’t accept this deal. They will no longer accept deals that are web based and the item is free. Central Florida

      • Kcroxburycoupn

        Do you know if it is all CF stores? Thanks :)

    • Obolton12211

      I just went to publix today and used this ( since I was already going there to get the toilet paper, towel paper, pampers and cascade) and the manager had no clue about this offer as well. He is looking into it but honored the deal so I got a free chicken :-).

    • susan

      I printed the Promotion, but can’t find anywhere it says Publix.  Am I missing it?  Do not want to take to the store for proof if it does not say Publix….

      Another question, if I buy $50 worth of P&G products ($30 of the $50 Olay products) and have the cashier print me 2 extra receipts, can I do all 3 rebates?

      • Hildawins

        They say only in Alabama

    • danielle

      considering that I can get the olay things almost free and got the paper towels, toilet paper and tide for at least $2 cheaper (not counting my q’s) last week, I am much better off paying $8 for a chicken if I wanted one! Not getting sucked into this “deal” :)

      • danielle

        but thank you Jenny for passing this one on to us! You have just taught me too well what is a deal and what is not :)

    • guest

       I thinks Its a better deals just to buy the 8.99 publix chicken dinner for 4.  Actually if someone buys the 4 PG products you already paid for the chicken

    • Rachelmae_23

      So, will I be able to receive all the rebates form one purchase? Or does each rebate have to be from separate purchases?

      • Hildawins

        Most of the rebates must have their own original receipt.  I think they look for you to do exactly as requested or your request is thrown out. 

        I never received my Aveeno rebate from June.  Sometimes they work – other times they do not – I always keep a copy with the date written on it when I submitted it! 

        I am going to have separate ring ups from now on.  I just lost a $2.00 rebate on the Invisible glass cleaner – am using the receipt for my Cooking Up Early Detection.  I now know from their voucher they do not accept copies of receipts!

        • Chris

          Right – if the form specifies an original receipt then it has to be a register receipt.  But there’s nothing in the terms of any of those that says it can’t be a duplicate register receipt (printed from the register) – they just don’t want a photocopy.  The only time you can use a photocopy is if it just says “include your receipt” but no wording about “original register” – at least I’ve not had trouble when following this guideline.

          • Lrae17

            Yes, and it’s easy for them to do a duplicate or triplicate receipt.  They just have to push a button and out pops another receipt.  The hard part (at least for me!)  is remembering to ask for the duplicate receipt when I need one!  

    • ddavis2680

      Has anyone tried this deal yet.  We were told it was fake.

    • chris

      This promotion is only valid in select Alabama stores.

    • kg

      I tried at Marietta, GA  and they had never heard of the free chicken deal….

    • Denise

      Is the Charmin and Bounty on sale? Is that considered cheap? I have such a hard time trying to figure out when these are cheap…regular, double, big, mega, soft, strong, ultra strong…etc. How does everyone else figure it out?

    • Chris

      FYI – I asked about this last night at the store here in Smyrna, GA (Cumberland and Paces Ferry) and the store Manager had not heard about it.  So he made a photocopy of it and wrote the web address to it down and went and looked it all up.  There was no communication to them about the deal he said.  But he did say if there had been a LU# on it or something then he would have been happy to take it.  Oh well.

    • SCDOXIES

      i WENT TO CLAIM THIS DEAL ALSO AND MY PUBLIX (SPARTANBURG SC) HADNT HEARD OF IT EITHER

    • Helen

      Deal not being honored in mid TN.  

    • Anne

      Really upset this deal was not taken in Charleston, SC

    • Melissa

      VERY upset over this deal…None of the employees had a clue about this.  I bought the items from this deal to do the bakeware deal as well so I spent WAY more than I had to.  I guess I could return some things but I used coupons on all of it and would feel bad for returning those items if they don’t fix the coupon amount too.  Lesson learned…check on the deal BEFORE purchasing items.

      • Drea

        ditto…

    • DeJuan

      I printed off the page, as suggested, and took it with me to shop.  Before the cashier started ringing up my order, I asked her about the deal & she asked the store manager, who, as most other managers, had not heard of it.  But because I had the paper, and it clearly stated the terms of the deal, they honored it and I got the free chicken!  This was at the Thompson Bridge Rd. store in Gainesville, GA…you guys rock!!  As a bonus, I used their store coupons to get free items with purchase of Bounty & Charmin, plus $1 off coupons for EACH ITEM, and to top that off, I will be using these purchases to get the cookware!!  Thanks Southernsavers for the updates & ideas!!
