    • Becky

      On the bandaid deal of buy 3 products and get $5 off…does anyone know how you get the $5?? I bought 3 and it didn’t show I got any discount and the girl looked at me like she had no idea either.

    • Ann

      I had the WORST cashier at Publix today and wanted to make sure that I had the policy correct. For example, I bought 2 Kraft Natural Shredded cheese…had one coupon for $1 off 2, and two $1 off 1 coupons. They were 2 for $4 and with the coupons making them 2 for $1. The lady at customer service was great and gave me the deal (along with many others) but the cashier made me feel like I was cheating the store. Am I? Did I do that right or not? I am new at this and want to save money but don’t want to be dishonest.

    • Samantha

      Becky – #15:

      There is a Publix q for the $5 off of 3 items. It’s in the green advantage buy flyer. In my store, these are at the turnstle up front.

      Ann – #16:

      I’m fairly new to couponing as well, but I think you can only use one manufacturer q and one store or competitor q per item at Publix (at least that’s the policy at my store). Your best bet, assuming those were all manu q’s, would’ve been to use the two $1 off q’s, which would’ve made your cheese $1 per pack.

    • Ann
      I think you used two manu coupons, which isn’t policy. That is most likely why the cashier gave you a hard time and I’m surprised CS gave it to you because you are not allowed to use two manu coupons for one item.

    • Learning2CouponFL

      Ann,

      Assuming that all three of your coupons were manufacturer coupons, you should not have been able to use all three of them together if you were only purchasing two bags of cheese. You cannot stack them just because they were written as different quantities. The $1 off 2 coupons are essentially the same as $0.50/1 coupons, except Kraft is encouraging you to buy multiples by requiring you to purchase two to be able to use the coupon.

      You can stack manufacturer coupons with store coupons because different companies are offering you the discount. I think of store coupons as being essentially sales, except they’re put in a booklet instead of on a sign because Publix is the one accepting the loss. Publix (or other store) gets reimbursed for manufacturer coupons by the company that makes the product.

      But I wouldn’t lose sleep over it; it was an honest mistake. And the cashier should have still treated you politely.

    • Just got back from Publix and founf a random close out item in the frozen entree section…not sure if any other Publix are running this special but you all might want to look for it. It is Smart Ones Calzones Italiano. They were 49 cents per box-normally $1.49.

    • I’ve been mulling over an idea the last few days after feeling like a “burden” to other customers in line behind me. I try to shop Publix at times when they have few customers but I still feel awful when I have a huge load of groceries for the family and lots of coupons I’m trying to frantically place on top of each item as it is scanned.

      What if Publix had a certain day or time slot that was “coupon friendly? or, like 10 items or less aisle there was an aisle that said “coupon friendly aisle” that would really just alert other customers that this aisle may take awhile?

      If Paula from Publix is still reading southernsavers maybe she could comment?

    • Elizabeth

      Renie and Ann,

      I’m a Publix employee and advise going to CS mgt. for all questions regarding coupons, especially when using multiples. Mgt. is more likely to assist you with these issues rather than the cashiers who are trained to be vigilant with coupons. No offense meant, but there are often savvy couponers who are not so honest, and cashiers are at the “front lines” to deal with them daily – allthewhile when customers behind the couponers are impatient and sighing loudly. It only takes one bad apple…

      Secondly, apologies for the random rudeness from your cashier. We all have our off-days, and working with the public is sometimes touchy. Our corporation stresses customer service, and we should be better stewards of our smiles and people skills. Happy Shopping!

    • Cori

      Not sure if it would still work, but 19453 gave a $2.00 off Listerine. I used it with the $2.00 off Publix and got $4.00 off one, it was a total of $1.19.

    • Challis

      Renie,
      I think you have a great idea. Especially having one cashier alloted for coupons. That way other customers would know the risk of getting behind someone in that lane plus they could have a cashier that was more knowledgable about coupons to make it faster. When I shop if there is someone behind me that does not have a ton of stuff, I let them get ahead of me. If I have been waiting for quite a bit I warn the person coming behind me that I have coupons and it might take longer than usual. They are either happy to go to another cashier or they are curious and stay to see what deals I am making.

    • lynn

      yes it will work

    • I had an older gentlemen mumble under his breath and say that “they need a special place for THESE people” in reference to me. Maybe you guys are onto something here ;)

    • Challis
      I do the same thing!
      I will also offer them a coupon or two if I have one for an item they are buying and they usually ask me where I find my deals and such and thats where southernsavers comes up!
      I think we should get a petition going for this coupon friendly checkout line!!

    • Becky

      Thanks Samantha for your help. I don’t know why I didn’t realize you had have the q! I ended up getting 3 boxes of bandaids for free plus overage after going back to publix and explaining what had happened. I had 3 $.50 q’s that doubled to $1 and then the $5 off in store q…woohoo!

    • I have what is probably a silly question, but need to ask it anyway. Are the coupons in the Green Advantage flyers considered store coupons or manufacturer coupons? I’d like to stack the Publix $1.00 off listerine in there with my $2.00 off printable and wanted to be sure it was ok before I even attempted it.

    • Learning2CouponFL

      Cathee,
      Off the top of my head I think I’ve seen both kind of coupons in those flyers. Generally manufacturer coupons have “manufacturer coupon” printed on them somewhere, usually in a bar near the expiration date. Generally, Publix store coupons will have an LU# printed on them and/or will have “store coupon” written on them. I think, but I’m not sure, that the LU# is the code that the cashier can use if she has to manually enter the coupon.

      I think I remember there being an in-depth post on the difference between manufacturer and store coupons but unfortunately I can’t find it now. Maybe somebody else will link to it.

    • Thanks so much L2CF! The listerine coupons in the Green Adv flyer have LU codes on them and no UPC so I figure they must be Publix coupons and not manufacturer coupons.

    • Shannon

      Here is a $1 off coupon for Carefree (for ultra protection but I used it on the regular carefree liners).
      http://www.coupongeek.net/2009/06/free-samples-carefree-and-stayfree.html

    • Today I bought 4 pkgs of Stayfree pads. I used 2 B1G1 Q’s and 2 $1 off Q’s. The lady who works CS told me I couldn’t do that. The deal had already been rung up so she told me they’d “let me have it this time.” My friends and I always have problems with her. She treats us like we are being dishonest and I would never do that. I am as polite as possible, but it’s obvious she just doesn’t like being “incovenienced.” She wasn’t even my cashier, but every time my friends and I who coupon come in, she hovers and picks through our q’s making dissapproving noises! I was right about my deal, correct?

    • Beth

      Hi everyone! I am new to the couponing thing but I have gotten hooked on all the secrets to saving! I now realize how much money I have been wasting! My question is, if I am using a coupon out of one of the Publix Advantage fliers and it says manufacture’s Q but at the bottom it says “redeem at Publix”, can I not stack a regular manufactures Q that I have gotten from my local paper with it? I tried to stack the two together but they wouldn’t let me because they were both “manufactures Q’s”.

      **Jenny Here**
      If it is a coupon from Publix and has a barcode then really it is a manfacturer coupon already so you can’t stack the two together. You will know that you have a real store coupon when there is no bar code and only an LU#

    • Christie

      I’m pretty new to all this but I’m already saving tons! :-)

      I do have a question however…I have a coupon for $2.00 off of cat litter that says manufacturer coupon on the top. However it then says “redeem at Publix only” on it also. I’ve seen some that encourage you to redeem it at a store but never say ONLY. I wanted to use it at Kmart for the double coupon deal this week but was afraid to. Any thoughts?

      Thanks!

    • Robin

      I have only been shopping at Publix for the last 3 months. Everyone is always super nice. Not one problem in 3 months. If anyone from the Hillcrest Publix is reading this I would just like to say thank you.

    • Okay, I spoke with the district manager today and he told me that if I buy 2 pkgs of Stayfree and use a B1G1 I can not use another manufacturer coupon because the B1G1 applies to both items. Any ideas here Jenny?

    • Melissa C.

      Chlduvthkng, he’s wrong. When you use a BOGO coupon, that coupon pays for 1 item. Publix gets reimbursed for 1 free item. That leaves the other item you should be able to use the other coupon on.

      You could try writing Corporate and see if they can straighten him out.

    • Hi,
      I new to this website and I don’t understand some of the lango….What does the RP 6/21 Regional mean? Where is the $2 off any Nivea coupon?

    • Kenzie

      There’s also a Nivea coupon in this week’s (7/12) Sunday paper for $1 off 1 or $3 off 2 Nivea body washes.

      Not sure if it’s a regional coupon or not. I’m near Atlanta.

    • Marcia

      Where do you get the Advantage Buy Flyers? and the Publix Summertime Savings flyers and the other coupon books that are mentioned?

    • Jessica

      What date did the Advantage Buy Flyer come out?

    • April

      I have a question. If you have a coupon that says something like $2 off produce with the purchase of product X, can you use it with a coupon for product X (ie. $1 off product X)? Also if both of those were manufacturer coupons could you theoretically use them both with store coupons if they were available?

    • lynn

      on a coupon that says bogo like the stayfree they will not let me use a coupon for the item i am paying full price for i have tried calling corperate and they keep having the same guy who has told me this call back same with the manf and store coupons they wont let me do that either it does no good to call corperate cause the guy who told me that is the one they have call me back any other ideas would be helpful thanks
