Publix Weekly Ad 3/16

For all you Publix shoppers, here is an early heads up on the coupons to print for the upcoming sale week (starting 3/23 or 3/24). I respect the wishes of Publix corporate not to post the ad early, but sometimes printable coupons run out of prints before you get them.

While I can’t share the deals, I can strongly suggest that if you like these products – print the coupons now and hold onto them until Wed. or Thursday when your ad starts!

-B1G1 Pretzel Crisps product (Facebook), 67.2 oz printable
-$1 off Nabisco Ritz Munchable Pretzel rounds, 12.25 oz printable
-$1 off Smart Balance Spread (zip 70618) printable
-.50/2 Skittles or Starburst candy printable
-$1 off Weight Watchers Frozen Novelty carton (3 coupons at zip 29212) printable or printable
-.50/1 Yoplait Fiber One yogurt multipack printable or printable
-$1 off Gorton’s Grilled item printable
-.50/1 Gorton product printable
-$1 off BeechNut Steamies Mini Meals or Let’s Grow twin pk printable
-.50/2 Zatarain’s rice mix printable

For those that have been waiting, this is going to be the big Kibbles & Bit’s week too!!

    • thanks Jenny! :)

    • Amazing! Thank you!
      A heads up though…the second “printable” link for the Zatarains is saying the coupons are no longer available for this promotion. Maybe just for me since I printed some of these off last month.

      • Leah

        I didn't get it to work for either link.

    • Lucy

      If your Publix accepts Target as a competitor, be sure to print the B2G1 Kraft 16oz Salad Dressing, B3G1 5.5- to 16-oz or larger Nabisco crackers, and B3G1 16-oz Oscar Mayer hot dogs coupons on the Target website. They'll come in handy for the upcoming ad week sale, too.

      • KellyL

        Not all stores will accept B1G1 compt. coupons. My store will not accept those.

    • Vicki

      What zip code works for the Zatarains?

    • Mlavender82

      I can't find the Smart balance Q. Anyone see it?

      • Lucy

        You have to choose the “grocery” category then the “dairy” subcategory. You should see the coupon there.

    • Sbcouponcole

      I love your site Jenny and I think you have done a tremendous job helping us save money. I have shared your site with many many people and have it set to my home page. But I would like to ask you to rethink your posting of the printable coupons for an upcoming Publix ad after Corporate has asked you not to post their ad early. I see this as a loophole because “technically” you're not posting their ad, but we all can clearly see what is going to be on sale at Publix in a few days. I love saving money at Publix, but I also want to play this coupon game fairly and within the guidelines of the store I am shopping at. I am looking forward to your continued growth of Southern Savers and the incredible opportunities this site allows. Thank you for reconsidering what is black, white and/or gray in the world of couponing.

      • Hey there! Thanks for keeping us focused on what is right. I promise on this post we are good and only sharing enough to help you get coupons. It is tough being one of the few sites left that tries to stay within the stores requests so thanks for the encouragement.

    • Jennifer

      Publix also has a $5 off Gerber Good Start formula coupon in their circular. If you pick up a Target gift bag when registering for your baby shower, there is a five or six dollar off coupon as well, which Publix will honor so you can save 50% on the cans or more if you also have a man. coupon.

      • Donna

        My Publix does NOT consider Target a competitor. We asked, then we tried to use a coupon…denied both times. I'm tempted to find another Publix.

    • Cindy

      Coupon Clippers still has a lot of $2.00 per bag coupons for the Kibbles and Bits. I have been waiting on this sale. Our local papers did not have the coupon for the Charleston area – that is the reason why I bought them with Coupon Clippers – 20 cents each . Thank you for the heads up – I will be at the store first thing on Wed morning . Have a great week !!!!!!!!

      • I also ordered mine from them, all 240 of them . My store got my bags in yesterday , I will be at publix wed too :) I am so excited about this . basically i will save 10 bucks a bag . woo hoo !!

    • Keldansmom

      My Kibbles n Bits coupons expired on 3/19 :(

      • You can get them dirt cheap on Ebay right now

      • Cindy

        The coupons on Coupon Clippers expire April the 16th .

      • Rwilson

        If you go before Saturday they may still take your coupons. They mail the coupons out on Saturdays, so they will take expired coupons as long as its within that week. At least they do at my Publix in TN. Call first to make sure :)

      • you have to get the ones for 4/16

    • Pretzel one won't work for me

      • Shayelyn

        The first time the pretzel coupon was listed, I printed it out once and then noticed it was a PDF file so I saved it. If you are interested, I can email you the link I saved and maybe that would work for you.

        • Czalinsky

          I got it thanks, for some reason it doesn't show on my screen until I hit print preview…

    • Donna

      Even going to red plum direct and hitting groceries then dairy, I don't get a smart balance

      • Momto4girlz

        I found it by googling “redplum, and typing smart balance into Redplum's search box. I couldn't ever get it to come up by going thru the links here. hth

      • Ginny

        Me either. I am not getting the coupons that I checked to print either.

    • Ward

      At what point do you do a special order on the dog food? Like if I wanted to buy 20 bags?

      • Kpedwards

        I'd ask them on Wed. I special ordered the Honey Bunches of Oats with Raisins when they were on sale last week…they never were able to get enough in by the end of the week to use up all my coupons, but they gave me a raincheck to cover all the rest of my coupons when they do finally get them. Start early, but they will work with you!!!

    • Anna

      Is the zipcode for the smart balance coupon correct? When I enter it into the direct red plum site, it says it can't be found.

    • sharon60

      Thanks Jenny, I appreciate all that you do!

    • Allyson

      Thank you, Jenny!

    • Coupongal18

      Thanks for a great heads up – I have been going to Publix on Friday night or Saturday because that is the earliest I can get there! NO more – I missed out on alot of the deals this week because they were all gone…..I could do rain checks but I can NEVER remember to go get them so it's a moot point for me!!! AHHH! And, I always miss out on the penny item! LOL!!!! NO more though!!!

      • Fullhouse

        I keep a pen out with my list as I am shopping and make note of what I need rain checks for, then BEFORE checking out I go to customer service and get my rain checks. Also, know when your store gets their trucks in-so many times I've gone to CS and an item was there, just not put out yet and they have always been more than happy to bring up whatever I need.

      • Michelle

        Also, ask if they'll substitute and item. I don't do it often, but once the manager offered to sub when they didn't have something in so I've asked one other time on the Arnold Bread (didn't include white bread) and they gladly substitued it! I LOVE PUBLIX!

    • Kb

      Than k you Jenny!!!!! Does your crystal ball have any idea when the vita top products will be on sale again???!!! I've been a very patient girl!

    • Katie

      Thanks Jenny! Much appreciate your heads up!

    • Gina

      What's the correct zip code on Smart Balance? Tried several different #'s w/no luck.

      • Aly B

        I went to the actual red plum site and typed in smart balance in the search bar. It pulled the coupon right up and I was able to print 2. Hope this helps!

        • Czalinsky

          thanks that worked great

    • kristenk

      zip code for zatarain's??? thanks!!

    • Czalinsky

      the second Gorton's 50/1 is printing $1/2 so it's most likely not going to be good for sale, :(

    • MariaR

      Love the inside scoop! Thanks so much!!!

    • jamie

      try 75201 for smart balance

      • Mlavender82

        Awesome! Thanks so much!

      • sharon60

        Jamie, It took me using 2 computers and 2 internet browsers but I FINALLY got 2 coupons to print!! Yea! Love Smart Balance products, I could do a commercial for them. Thanks so much for the zip..

    • GaMedic

      I just love Jenny… Thanks (:

    • Czalinsky

      Smart Source also has a $2.50 q. for the kibbles but it says Only good at DG… If ur Store takes comp. coupons it will make it free…

      • Sis2

        Wrong size for the sale also. Won't work.

      • yardsale_shopper

        the one i printed like that said for 14lb or larger bag.

        • Danyeln

          The coupons Jenny is referring to were in the paper several weeks ago. They were $2 off and Jenny told folks to hold on to them becauise a B1G1 was coming.

    • kristy

      Is anyone else having problems printing the Beechnut or Skittles coupons? It says I have already printed them and I haven't.. Thanks

      • jrenee

        Mine gave some other error message and wouldn't print them.

    • Gina

      Thanks jamie- 75201 works for smart balance.

      • Sandy Morrison

        ty !!

    • gardengirl

      Thanks for giving us a heads up. I was going to use the Nabisco and yoplait q's tomorrow at Kroger but I'll wait and use them at Publix.

    • guest

      zatarains zip code anyone? Thanks!!! :)

      • Linda

        Try 33313

    • FreeSampleJen

      Thanks for the heads up! REALLY appreciate all that you do!

    • Lona_in_Chas

      I need a coupon buddy. No one understands me when I get excited about great deals. Ready to print a shopping list. Thanks for the heads up. I'm ready, ready, ready.

      • Donna

        I understand.
        My hubby is my coupon buddy.
        We just started really using coupons a few weeks ago.
        Our fridge, freezer and pantry are full.
        He even went online looking for coupons (for wine – typical guy) while I was off on my Publix/CVS/Kroger run tonight.
        Good stuff!
        Bring on the money makers!!!

        • cheryl

          I've recruited my husband too! Don't you just love it!? :-)

      • Smacada

        I know what you mean. I get upset when I lose a $1.00 coupon or very excited when something great goes on sell. all from couponing.

        • malou

          Exactly! My first coupon excursion I left my coupon binder in the grocery cart at the parking lot during a stormy night. I wanted to cry but thankfully someone found it and turned it in.

        • Hidingsun1

          And who was it that turned you on to couponing? Hmmm, my BFF! :o)

      • Emrcampbell

        You are not alone! I get soooo excited too!

      • sharon60

        Me too. I swear I do not know a soul who uses coupons and I tell absolutely everybody. So that makes it extra nice to be able to log on and tell all the readers about a great deal that you've found or how much you saved and then getting a reply or a “like” is almost as good as talking about it in person! :-)

    • Smacada

      Where is the Dry Dole fruit sold? I have been holding on to these coupons and I have looked at Wal Mart, K Mart, Target, CVS, Publix, Winn Dixie and HT.

      • Nikestarzz

        Are you talking about the Dole Real Fruit Bites? If so, they are sold at Sweetbay! :)

      • COUPONSFORME

        MY WALGREENS HAS THEM

    • Sallytpyle

      When is the earliest that you can post the Publix ad?

      • Isaaxmisc

        She posts at noon on Tuesday…used to be after 9pm on Tuesday.

    • Rwilson

      Thanks Jenny! You rock my world!!! :)

    • Girl D29

      You are awesome!!!!!

    • Twinmomaaa

      The Beech Nut coupon only let me print once :-( Some type of error occured the second time and it counted it as my second print I guess!
      Is there anyone who would like to trade a couple of these prints for some other coupons? I have twin toddlers who like to eat :-) I don't have pets, so I'd be happy to send all my pet food coupons your way! Or anything else you would need. Thanks in advance!
      My email is twinmomaaa@gmail.com

      • Glueandglitter

        Did you try clicking the link again from this post rather than the back button?

        • Twinmomaaa

          Yes :-(

    • Janice

      I can't find the Zatarain's coupon on coupon.com…Does anyone have the zip code for it? Thanks in advance. :)

    • Brenda

      There is a coupon at Gortons.com for $1 off 2 Gorton's items also.
      Thanks for all your hard work Jenny!!

    • SamsMommy

      I had a cashier at my local Publix tell me they are changing their “official” coupon policy beginning in early April and that “couponers won't like it”. Anyone else heard this?

      • oh boy…why do these cashiers get some sadistic pleasure making couponers unhappy??

        • SamsMommy

          Who knows! But she was really nice about and was acting as if she was just giving me a “heads up”. Said something about only allowing competitor coupons from stores within a certain square mileage which is not good for me cause I live in the sticks!

          • Couponing4myfamily

            My sister works for Publix and she said that they would no longer be accepting drug store coupons and only coupons from “grocery stores” as competitors soon. I asked about Target, but she said she wasn't sure. This is a “corporate” change from what I understand. She said that it would be posted in the store and on the website soon. She told me to keep shopping as usual, but to be prepared.

            • Roberta

              My Publix has had this policy for about a year now. Doesn't really affect me, I just never print out the Target coupons so I don't waste the ink.

            • Rachel

              Makes be a little upset, I use coupons properly and honestly. I understand that there are people out there that don't so they need to restrict their useage in some ways. I respect that.

              I don't respect the fact that Publix just posted HUGE 4th quarter profits, while the economy is in, well…the crapper. We all have to buy groceries and they are making a killing off the average joe's groceries. I just want to use my coupons correctly and get my deals. I don't want to rip them off or scam them out of something, they are making it harder and harder to continue to shop exclusively at Publix. Take away too many coupons and I'll be forced to shop at 2 stores to get my regular deals instead of just Publix. Stinks,

      • I know my Publix has already stopped taking any CVS ECB's like they were. Hopefully it won't get too crazy but we will see.

    • Lauren

      Anybody know the zip code for the Zatarain's coupon?

    • WynetteC

      The Weight Watchers coupon is a bottom of the page printing coupon.
      :::sigh:::
      I will learn to quit flipping them before I know which way it will print.

      • Mama

        If you are on a PC you can go to Printers and Faxes, click your printer, then go to Printing Preferences. Then click “Preview before printing” box, and you can always see how it's going to print.

    • Pat Purvis

      Anyone find a zipcode that works for Zatarains?

    • JuneS

      I can't print the pretzel coupon. The coupon shows up as a PDF file. When I click the print icon it says it is printing but no coupon prints. I have tried several times with no luck

    • Vbailey1253

      My publix has already changed it's policy! Won't let you use as many coupons! Don't understand it – nothing out of their pockets!! I walked out and left $200.00 worth of Similac for them to put back on the shelf because they would not let me use coupons!

      • Papurvis

        Did they say what the change was officially?

        • Jaab324

          Thats funny because my publix told me that the coupon policy wasnt due to change until april and even then it probably wouldnt fully change until the summer because they have had problems getting the information printed to give to customers.

      • Paullapba

        where do you live?

      • SamsMommy

        My cashier said it was effective in the early part of April. What was their reasoning for not letting you use coupons?

      • momof5

        i went to publix last week and found coupons someone left by accident in a cart, paperclipped together. i looked through them and many of them had the expiration dates cut off (so i am assuming they were expired) and many of them had expired. cashiers have told me about customers doing this, but i was surprised to actually see it.

        i have shopped at publix for years, and think the coupon policy is MORE than generous. i have never had a problem buying as much of any item that i wanted, if i had the correct coupon for the item.

        something about your post makes me think you didn't give us all the facts.

      • Vivmr9

        Which publix was this?

    • Paullapba

      I heart publix has the add up. No Pretzel Crips:(

      • I think they were listed with the Ritz munchables all in a group for BOGO. :)

    • Coupon Queen

      I am new to on-line couponing, but I have fallen in love with this site!

    • JuneS

      Am I the only one that cannot print the Pretzel Crisps coupon?

      • sharon60

        I couldn't get it to work yesterday, but did today, then by reading the posts I realized it's not on sale this week. Jenny said to save them for later. But try it again, it might work for you now.

        • JuneS

          Sharon thank you for your response. I finally was able to print the coupon. The problem was with my new printer. My discovered the problem and reset what was set wrong in the printer. Again, thank you

    • Forgetful!

      I should know this, but how do the b1g1 work at Publix stores that consider their b1g1 sale actually 1/2 off??

      • Not sure if this helps but in Georgia you had to only buy one item and get it at half the cost. They ring up half price for both items. To get a deal you do not have to buy both items. I live in Florida now and one rings up free and one rings up full price so I have to buy two to make it worth my while. Hope this answers your question:)

      • shops2much

        I just watched her tutorial video and it is suggested NOT to use BIGI at grocery stores as they do not save you as much as at the Drug Stores

        • Rachel

          I think it depends where you live, and which type of sale you actually have. I live in Florida and we have true B1G1. Buy 1 and get one for FREE (second items rings at 0 value). I am able to score TONS of free stuff…much better deals at Pubix over CVS & Walgreens, Walmart or Target. Publix is a much better deal for us in Florida.

          Also, depends on which stores your Publix considers as a competitor. I have 2 Publix stores within 3 miles of my house they have very different coupon policies and competitors list. Pays to know what each will accept.

    • Akjjmom

      I work 4 publix is that they r changing their coupon policy so far they will conitnue to accept competitor coupons from other grocery store but not drug stores. so far the date they have is april 12, but it will probably be later.

      • Thank you for sharing with us!

      • bev 37

        i can only get my publix to only accept 1 grocery store coupons from accross the street. have 2 more about 3 mi. why is that?

        • justme

          It depends on the individual Publix. Each one seems to differ on who they think is their competitor

    • Jodie

      where do you find the yellow and green advantage flyers

      • Lr0920

        They are usually at the customer service desk

      • As soon as you walk in to the store where the carts are there should be where the weekly ads are. If not ask customer service .

      • Heather Cusick

        For future reference they also come in the Sunday paper. It comes separate from the Publix weekly ad though.

    • Lcline29

      Tried to print Zatarains coupon…took me to coupon.com but it wasn’t there. Had same problem with coupons I wanted to use at publix last weekend but they were not on coupon.com when I clicked on southernsavers link to printable. It takes you to site but the coupons I want are not there. Any ideas? thanks

    • jfred

      the pretzel q I had to save to my computer as a pdf, then it would print. weird.

    • Schwartzkim36

      whew hew…can't wait for the Kibbles n Bits……Anyone know what is the best Pantene deal around?

    • Lucy

      B1G1 Pretzel Crisps product (Facebook), 67.2 oz

      This product is a Snack Factory product. It comes in 6- or 7.2-oz bags and can be found in the Deli section of the store. It's not going to B1G1 free this upcoming ad week. However, It's a great coupon to print out because they are good pretzel crisps and they do go on B1G1 free every once in a while…

      The item that will be B1G1 free this upcoming ad week is Nabisco Ritz Pretzel Crisps. The $1 off printable coupon that is linked will work for those.

    • April

      Just a heads up that my Publix did NOT double $0.50 Mfg Qs that stated on them “Do Not Double”. They've always doubled in the past. I don't know if this was a software update in the register or if the cashier was manually suppressing them though. Just remember this when making your lists/calculations.

      • JuneS

        I live in South Florida and my none of the stores I shop at double coupons.

      • Sherionlefevers

        if there is a 5 in the lower left corner it will double

        • sunflowerhappyme

          My Publix does double all coupons up to $0.50 but if the coupon specifically says “Do Not Double” They suppress the coupon to where it will NOT double. Even if there is a 5 in the lower left corner. Just a heads up!

    • tori729

      I know many have asked this already, but has ANYone found the Zatarains coupon yet?

      Jenny, this is REALLY helpful as a lot of the ones I wanted last week were gone before I could print them.

    • Sherionlefevers

      cant find where the pasta is to print out for krogers sale

    • Mcarlisle20

      When can you post the Publix ad for this week?? I was wanting to go shopping in the morning!!!! Thanks for all you do to give us all the great deals!!!

      • Mcarlisle20

        Sorry, I just found it!!!! I don't know how I missed it!!!!

    • Steph in GA

      We got our Kibbles and Bits! We bought some coupons from eBay for the first time and were able to pick up 80 pounds of dog food for under $16, that is the price, buying the coupons and tax. :) Thanks for the heads up on this. Our Publix was even nice enough to order the 20 bags and hold them for us. Awesome!!
