    • Michele Hollick

      I just got back from my Publix trip where they have the women’s Dove deoderant ($2.99 ea) on sale B1G1. I used that $3/2 Dove products Q that came out on coupons.com this morning. The one that says “Walgreens Only” on it. I even went up to the manager first and asked if I could use it. She said “No problem” and she was right. Made a penny on each one I used :-)

      • Kmk

        wondering what zip you used Used a couple of my regular ones and couldn't find it

    • Jessica

      I discovered today that my Publix (at Furman University, Poinsett Hwy. in Greenville) didn't advertise that they had the boxes of Van's frozen Waffles (Multigrain or Berry), 2 for $5… I was STOKED! These have become such a yummy, healthy breakfast for me, and they are reg. $2.99 at Publix; and more than $3/box at Whole Foods!

    • Guest

      The Mahatma rice, while a good deal @ $1.11, has been $0.99 at my store for the last 2 years. They just went up in price 2 weeks ago. Normally it goes on sale for 0.89 every 8 weeks or so!!

    • Guest

      There are also $2/2 hangie tags on the dish detergent.

      • Guest

        The 7th gen dish detergent……

    • JessB

      I was pretty happy with a deal I got today on Powerade! They had the 32oz bottles on sale BOGO $1.25 each, plus there were hangtags on a few bottles that had buy 10 get 5 bottles free! So I got 15 bottles for $6.25!

    • Mqualis

      All easter candy is 50% off too…

    • Guest

      Publix in Evans, GA also had Propel Water for .50 cents!!!

    • PLUS Shout Spray is B1G1 ($1.49) with a $.40 coupon attached to it, doubled that makes it .$.69

      • Li

        I bought one and the peelie was taken off by someone…

        • Mommyof2sweetgirls

          I have seen some people walking aisles and just pulling off one after another. I know a lot of people think this is legit, but I consider this rude and obnoxious. You know, like the peoplw how come in a buy 90 or 100 of something for free and leave nothing for the rest of us who coupon. Oh well, I am still saving a lot of money so I cant complain too much. Happy couponing everyone!

          • Lana

            That is exactly why I will not buy peelies on ebay as this must be where they come from!

          • Rita

            I agree with “you only use peelies if you purchase the product”. But last week in the grocery store, I took two blinky coupons (for something I would purchase in the future when on sale and I had someone tell me that was a “no-no”. I think that's okay to do, isn't it?

            • Rebecca D

              I think it's just fine. What is the difference if you use it now or later? If you took 15 of them to hoard then that's one thing. But grabbing a couple you are legitimately going to use is exactly what they are there for.

            • yes that's fin to do… The person was crazy, lol

            • Christa

              Shame on You!

        • Josamky63

          It might have been me!! hehe…

          • Ray

            It's not ethical or legal to take peelies or hang tags off of products in the store. You have to buy the product, and then either use the peelie or save it for later. I don't know why everyone jumped on the person who took the blinkie and not you. Blinkies are actually made for people to take regardless of buying a product.

            and then you say “hehe” … it's not cute to steal peelies.

    • I found a little box for $1.25 off coupons for the DiGiorno Pizza +a side packages!

    • Lfleming67

      Found a $5 off $30 purchase at Publix coupon in the local freebie newspaper that lands in my driveway every once in a while this morning. What a nice surprise. Mt. Juliet, TN

      • diann

        yes! talked to Public CS desk Saturday and they will be issuing coupons like this in newspapers and via mail for the next 6 months.Enjoy!

    • Frisbeebear

      New to couponing…..anybody know if Publix will accept a comp. coupon if there is not one in the area? For example, will mine take a Harvey's coupon, even if there are no Harveys anywhere around (never even heard of it!)? Thanks!

      • Benzylou

        My Publix does not take those. In fact, they don't take Target coupons either…they say it needs to be a competing grocery store for them to take it.

        • Hunter

          Benzylou, that is a load of crap. I am a cashier at publix and from my point of view, i accept pretty much all coupons without a second thought. so look for the dumb cashiers like me :) haha.

          • KAW

            wow….kinda rude. Every Publix is different…..you have to check where you shop to see what they take.

          • Gillyp3864

            We usually gravitate to the young teen guys…dumb as dirt.

            • Seriously? Shame on you.

            • Janet

              You've got to be kidding. Saying they are “dumb as dirt” implies that you are trying to pull one over on them as they are not smart enough to “catch” what you are doing. The majority of the readers here are ethical couponers and traditionally do not promote or support any kind of fraudulent coupon activity.

          • Sweetdarlin25

            My Publix doesn't take Target but the one about 15 miles down the road does. It just depends on the store mgr.

          • loves couponing!

            Hopefully you are much more professional when you are at work! However, tis true to look for the young guys-they are usually nice but don't nit-pick the coupons. However, the store manager does not allow Rite-Aid or CVS Q and there IS a pharmacy in my Publix. I still LOVE Publix because I save so much money, the stores are super clean, the staff is professional and courteous and their coupon policy is fair, even without accepting the drugstore Q and competitors “outside” of the market area!

            • Shimpfriedrice

              -eye roll-

              That person isnt being paid right now to sugar coat things…so why should they? Furthermore why are you scolding someone who just said they'd let you have your way?Im a cashier too, and Im paid to scan things and keep my lip zipped while working…Cant be fired for thoughts. And not all the young ones are stupid….you come across my line I know my coupons and my store's policy. I dont mind them, and often enjoy seeing the deals…but I'll block anything that goes against that policy unless my manager tells me otherwise. Dont like it? Tough cookies. Im no rookie.

            • Sharrona

              Thank you Shrimp, Hunter should be fired, I also work at Publix, I love coupons, but go by the rules

      • Lknow68

        You should check with your publix manager, because every Publix is different. They are changing their policies as well, what goes for this week can change for next week. If I have questions, I go to the service desk and ask.

      • Wendy

        depends on the mgr. of your store…ask at customer service. My Publix is very strict and only accepts 2 of the traditional grocery stores as competitors in our area.

      • Amber B

        We only have 3 grocery stores in my town – Publix, Kroger, and Walmart. My Publix will only accept competitor q's from Kroger and Walmart. Since we don't have a pharmacy in our Publix they also won't accept q's from Rite-Aid, Walgreen's or CVS. I still love my Publix, but I wish they'd accept more competitor q's!

      • Kdecarufel

        no the competitor has to be near by-

    • BoonaMom

      With the Nature's Own bread, I found a coupon in the aisle for $.75 off. It was for a different type, but they let me use it anyway, so I got it for $.25!!!

      • tori729

        That's coupon fraud, PLEASE don't do it! That makes it harder for the rest of us when companies lose money. Then they will stop issuing coupons!!
        If the coupon specifically states it is for a specific variety or size, then that is what it was made to be used for and even it the register takes it, it's still coupon fraud.

    • Tyler

      No KY printable anymore seems like

    • Ambedelia

      Recycle Bank has a $10 off $50 purchase at Harris Teeter coupon. I used this yesterday at Publix. Then I went to recyclebank.com, earned more points and redeemed them for another one. I also routinely use the $10 off $40 Harris Teeter coupon in their Charleston, SC ad flyer at my local Publix.

    • shamrock75

      I was told yesterday by a cashier Publix in Fleming Island is coming out with a new coupon policy May 1st?? Anyone know what it is? I could not find the manager to ask.

    • Hoschtongirl

      I heard the same thing about a new coupon policy at my publix, she said it would be more centralized.

      • Michelle

        My Publix said it was about stacking. They will only take one store coupon per product now. You will not be able to use multiple coupon's anymore!!

      • Sandy

        Our new policy starts in June. We'll have to wait until then to find out the changes.

    • JennieRae

      i have a quick question:

      Oscar Mayer Lunchmeat, 16 oz, at $3.99 ($1.99)

      what does the price in ( ) mean? is that the sale price?

      • MomofKLA

        For Publix, the Buy One Get One sales are actually half price sales. You do not have to buy two items. So if you buy one, the price is 1.99. Hope this helps!

        • Kmk

          our publix in New Smyrna beach fla won't do that But our Food Lion does

          • MomofKLA

            You are right. I didn’t realize that you are in Florida. In Florida, Publix does a true buy one get one free, so you have to buy both. Everywhere else it is really half price. So, the price in the ( ) does not apply to you. Sorry if I confused you.

      • Kim


    • Haley554

      The Campari tomatoes were actually BOGO for 4.99 at my store (in Jax, FL).

    • Kayla

      Also at publix the Glade candles are b1g1 at $3.49 each. You can use a $2/2 Glade spring collection coupon and 2 $1 off Glade spring collection *Target coupons and get your 2 candles for free plus overage! :)

      • jules

        please do tell where the 2 off 2 is from???

        • LJ

          there is a printable $2/2 in the coupon database

    • Jrm0908

      I am new with coupons. If I have a B1G1 Huluva Dip at Publix ($2.00 sale price) and a .50/1. They would not let me just buy one so it was not free at my Publix? Am I doing something wrong??

      • Do u live in FL.? Couponing down there is different then most states. in FL it is true B1G1. But you should still be able to just purchase one if you wanted to.

      • Rebecca D

        if Publix is running a B1G1 sale then you can buy just one (if you are not in florida). If you are using a B1G1 coupon, then you have to buy 2, and you could only use one manu Q unless you had an additional store Q. hope this helps!

    • Rae G.

      I reside in GA and love, love the coupon stacking at my local Publix. If they change their policy, I will begin shopping at Food Lion. They accept competitor coupons, store coupons and MF coupons. I hear in some stores they double coupons up to $.60.

      • bcw77

        Yes, this is true. The FL in Conyers doubles coupons up to .60. I love Publix, too, and hope they don't drastically change their policy. I will go to FL when they have a really good deal on something especially if I have a coupon that is for .55 -.60 since it is worth more there, but they do not have as good of deals on a regular basis like Publix does. Keep your fingers crossed!

    • Trapanizoo

      i looked for the Suave coupon in the Green Advantage Flyer this morning in my Publix. Didn't see it… Can coupons in the Green flyer be regional? I never noticed before….

      • genxeratl

        Yeah I looked for that Q too. I even checked when I got to the store just to make sure I hadn't lost my mind but it wasn't there. Still a good deal at $.99 ea so I bought two anyways (with a shaved head that'll last me forever anyways – lol).

      • PTL

        It was in the last green ad which expired on 4/1. I think she just has it confused with this one.

      • Think it was a type o – dates dont match up? help? love to stock up

    • Couponjunkie

      Does anyone know where to find the Del Monte Fruit Naturals coupon? It's not even on the preview list for RP 3/27

      • Linda3

        I got mine from the 3/27 Red Plum.

    • Tammi

      I used those $3/2 coupons off of 2 Dove products at Publix today since the Dove deodorant is on sale B1G1 $1.49 each! It's a manufacturer coupon even though it appears to be only redeemable at Walgreens. Had 3 prints so I got 6 free deodorants!

    • Joynunez24

      There is also a 2/1 coupon for the KY in the SS 1/30.

    • Katie H.

      so I have a small rant about my trip to Publix this morning. I got 2 of the Fruit 2 Go drinks that were b1g1. I had 2 coupons for .45 off. When the cashier scanned the drinks they scanned regular price. I told her they should have been b1g1, so she started to check the ad and I told her they weren't advertised but there was a sign in front of them in the produce aisle. So then we had to wait forever for someone to confirm this for her. Then she gives me back one of the coupons and says I don't need it since I am getting one of the items for free. I guess they have a policy to give you one of an item free if it rings up the wrong price. The problem with that is that I actually lost .90 cents from them since they didn't scan the 2'nd .45 cent coupon. The line was getting long and I didn't want to make a big deal out of less than a dollar, but this really irks me!

      • Susan

        I don't understand how you lost 90 cents. You bought one at half price with a 90 cent coupon and the other was completely free instead of half price minus 90 cents. You gained 60 cents you would have spent if it hadn't been free!

        • Alison V.

          i thought she was saying she paid full price for one and got one free, literally. if that was the case, i would definitely take your receipt and the coupon back to customer service on your next trip and ask about it. i've had an issue that i didn't agree with before and come to find out the cashier was misinformed regarding the coupons i was using. they fixed it no problem.

        • KAW

          If the cashier had just scanned the second coupon, she would have gotten that .90 off her total bill….I would have told her to scan it anyway.

        • K. Hansen

          I paid full price for one and got the other for free. So I lost out on .90 cents.

          • Guest

            You got an Item for free that you would have paid for….even with a coupon…how is that losing out on 90 cents. Focus on your total and not your coupons….

            • Marina115

              I would have liked to have overage towards my other purchases too. Just saying! :)

          • Quinngt

            @KatieH. If I am following you correctly here the issue is the price of the one you paid for not the one you got for free. It sounds like you are in the land of 1/2 price bogo and not ture BOGO's. If that is the case then you are actually out $1.50 not $.90. I would call the store manager and take my receipt to get the money back.

      • ShondaB

        I think it's funny that people miss the fact that the item was already B1G1 and that you were suppose to get the item for free anyhow. They really should have gave you both items for free since it rang up wrong and it was B1G1, I mean giving you the free item for free doesn't really make sense to me. I personally never knew of this policy, but good to know. You should take your receipt back and tell them what happened on your next trip. You technically still bought the item, so they should take your coupon for both items.

      • Nan

        Mine rang up at trgular price too, but I went to customer service. I had used 2 coupons, but they didn't ask and I didn't tell….They gave me a refund for $2.99 and $1.49 so I made .30 and got 2-2packs of drink :) A little hassle, BUT a great deal :)

    • Jenney

      I just went to my local publix in Columbia,SC. And I didn't find any of these unadvertised deal. Is it regional?

    • Nikkimcd87

      If any one has access to the commissary, they have coupon books up front full of manufacturer coupons. There is $0.50/2 Ragu Pasta Sauce coupon in there and they are B1G1 this week at publix!

    • Bolessd

      How does Publix handle a b1g1 mq if they are running a b1g1 sale? is it like the drugstore deals where you get both items free or do they only give you both items for the 1/2 price?

      • Guest

        They give you one @ 1/2 price and one free. They ring up 1/2 price (unless you're in FL, where it's a true BOGO, in which I believe they would both be free).

    • Cchilson

      2. Rotel coupon $1/3 in the April All You magazine

      i would definitely take your receipt and the coupon back to customer service on your next trip and ask about it. i've had an issue that i didn't agree with before and come to find out the cashier was misinformed regarding the coupons i was using. they fixed it no problem.

        sorry, this was supposed to post below another comment but my computer did something funky!

    • Kellyjeanne08

      Publix Brand Yogurt is 10 for $5

    • DDC

      Must be a big week for Publix deals… I went to mine in Valrico Fl today and the cashier told me that TLC Extreme Couponing film crew was there yesterday filming three ladies. She then said she was told to read every coupon being handed over by a customer, of course all of mine checked out… but I am with you Jenny… this show is not really a “good thing” for those just looking to shop reasonably to provide for their family…. I hope this does not cause Publix to rethink their generous coupon policy.

      • MichelleM

        Oh man!! I was CERTAIN Publix would not want to participate in that show but apparently I was way wrong!! ugh…that sucks! I didnt think such a great, friendly store would want that reputation of having people come in, clearing the shelves with hundreds of possibly sketchy coupons, etc. Thats not good to hear at all!! :(

    • Hotdown_south

      I get the nashville tn paper and I cannot find the purina one coupon for cat food. I have looked multiple times is anyone else missing it.

    • genxeratl

      Publix is opening a new store here in Atlanta that is some sort of Hybrid between a regular Publix and a Greenwise Market Publix. Opens Thursday in Brookhaven and i expect they will be doing some give-aways and what have you. Also note they will be testing their new curbside service here in Atlanta for the first time at the Toco Hills store and the new store above then will start testing in Tampa later this year.

    • There were three Winn-Dixie coupons on the last page of the Red Plum home mailer (Orlando) yesterday. $1 off Oscar Meyer Meat, $1 off Philadelphia Cooking Creme, and $1 off Oscar Mayer Shredded Cheese w/ a Touch of Philadelphia.

    • Bella

      My Chattanooga paper today, Weds., came with a Publix $5/$30, exp 5/10/11. yippee!

      Not sure where to post this, but fyi – article in yesterday's WSJ states that both Kimberly Clark and P&G, both makers of paper goods, diapers, toilet paper, wipes, etc. are going to be raising their prices on those items by 7% very soon. IMHO, wise shoppers should take heed and stock up a.s.a.p. on these necessities before the price increases.
      (and yet the gov't will not admit that we are in a period of inflation…. go figure???)

        One manufacturer does not = inflation.

        • Val

          Does 2? ;)

          • jdeac

            No, it takes an overall rise in the level of prices in the entire “market basket” of goods to be inflation

            • There is a significant amount of inflation in place and headed across the board. When the CEO of WalMart says prices are going to inflate “significantly”… then I'm gonna guess that may happen. On top of that, what the government uses to measure inflation does not include food, fuel and only accounts for specific amounts on other items (like electronics). Its' rather screwy and skewed, like the unemployment rate. ;-)

      I shop at Publix in Anderson, SC on Clemson Blvd. & the Fruit2day is NOT on sale at this location just FYI

    • Harolyn

      Publix flyer.Spring Cleaning sale ommmmmmn back coupon fove dollars off 30.00 dollar purchase. good thru 5//

    • Jbshivers

      These deals are not available in my stores here in GA. Sorely disappointed. I got the Smart Balance Milk anyways for $1.09. I had the store coupon and a $1.50 off coupon from SS 4/10. I bought 2. It's Still cheaper than a gallon of Publix milk.

      • AshleyQ

        Our sale doesn't start until tomorrow. Check back then on the items you need. Since these were unadvertised, they still may not be on sale in our market but you will have better luck finding them when the new ad starts.

        • bcw77

          Depends on where you are in GA. Some start on Wed and some start on Thurs. They start tomorrow where I live, but in the county where I work they started today.

    • Cfeathers1

      Before you print out your coupons please check to see if your Publix has these sales. My Publix does not have any of these! Maybe it is a southern thing. I was real disappointed.

    • Cfeathers1

      Does anyone know what are the changes going to be for Publix coupon policy? I hope it don't change too much. They told me it was the extreem couponer that was hurting all of us. People that go in and buy 30-40 of one item and cleaning off the shelf.

      • Mama23babygirls

        I was told it will be a max amount of BOGO deals that you can buy at one time. Personally I think thats a great policy. I cant stand hearing/seeing people buying more than a few of the deals at a time. Its selfish and unnecessary.

    • Seeallmycoupons

      Quite frustrated with my local Publix today :(…..me and a couple of friends have been shopping there for several weeks with our coupons…my friend goes to check out with her overflowing buggy…her sister right behind her…the customer service manager was checking her out and asked her to match up her coupons with every item she had? They have never done this before….it took this woman over an hour to ring up 2 buggies of groceries! When she was first told this she said I dont think I like this and turned around to tell the rest of us what was going to happen and the cashier runs over to the manager at the desk and they both run off to alert the rest of the cashiers that we were getting ready to check out and to not let us get away with anything….I have never felt so much like a criminal in my life! So 3 buggies were rang up and the only mistake with the ton of coupons that we all had was a pace picante sauce in my buggy… a .35 cent coupon off 2 bottles….I had one to begin with and found another coupon on a shelf on the other side of the store…right before I checked out I ran over to get the other pace picante sauce and forgot that it was off 2 jars and not 1. As we were leaving the store…the manager is walking over to the cashiers to ask if we checked out ok. What in the world? Do I really want to shop at a store that seems to assume that I am being fradulent with my couponing? Very disappointed…

      • Susan

        If you want all those savings please don't complain. I willingly match my items with coupons on top as I take them out of the buggy. It takes me the same amount of time to check out as ususal. I smile. The cashier smiles. I like Publix and am glad I can save so much. I am willing for everyone to know I am not cheating and I appreciate them. Scowls and complaints make it seem like you have something to hide. It also makes for an unhappy day.

        • Lisa

          I was told by a checker at Publix that the cash registers don't have a way of checkking to see if the coupon item was really purchased. It's up to the checker to try to figure it out or take your word for it.
          With that in mind, it makes sense that they asked you to match things up. Maybe a few letters to corporate would encourage them to add a coupon checking feature to their registers.
          Hope this explains things.

          • Seeallmycoupons

            …and that is fine..it just had never been done before..as you can see from my earlier post…the matching was a surprise and took forever but my main complaint was with the rudeness in which it was carried out, I guess I am just an old fashioned southern girl who believes I should be treated with respect… especially if I am handing over my families hard earned money ;)

            • yikesimamom

              I completely agree with you. I have never been asked to match my coupons to the products. You were definitely treated unfairly and have every right to be disappointed with the unacceptable service you received. We're not lepers, just smart with our hard earned cash. Corporate wants to be notified and will not stand for this ridiculous judgement!

          • rindy

            One of my Publix cashiers always matches and scans my coupons along with each item. He explained that's the way he knows none of the coupons get missed being scanned. That's extra important when stacking coupons. I really appreciate being able to keep an eye on that too!

        • CCShad

          I wouldn't mind doing that, but I usually have a dollar amount off total coupon that has to be scanned first and they can't scan it until all items are scanned to make sure total amount is reached, for example $5 off $30. How do you work around that?
          Or do they just double-check your coupons first and scan them all at the end?

        • Seeallmycoupons

          I believe I have EVERY right to complain about an incident which draws negative attention to me by everyone in the entire front end of a large supermarket and embarrasses me greatly..they were running around acting like a shoplifter was trying to leave the store…. especially from someone who is taking my money. I was nice to my cashier ( she apologized to me many times because she knew what they were doing was just wrong without me even saying a word to her, i did have a different cashier than the other 2 girls) and I did help her match the coupons. And I most certainly am NOT a scowler with lots of complaints..Just don't want to feel like a criminal in my own grocery store.

          • stephc23

            I have two Publix in my area: one, they are kind, friendly and help me coupon in every way they can think of, and another store where they barely say hello, but never hassle me about coupons. They vary…unfortunately, the one where they go out of their way to be great runs out of advantage flyers and sometimes product the very first day of the sale. You have the right to be treated with respect though. I'd complain to corporate via the website. I know they don't condone that kind of behavior.

            • Seeallmycoupons

              we are now driving to another town to shop….they were wonderful! I even offered to put my coupons with all the items and she laughed at me and said…nooooo that is way too much trouble. lol

            • Sheikhkiran

              not similar but kinda same thing happened to me and i was excited that they will scan each item and corresponding coupon together…gave me a peace of mind that all my coupons are scanning with product….i loved the idea

              saved alot:) came out happy….and cashier gave me a smile also a helper dropped my groeries to the car

      • tori729

        That's a little much, IMO. I do have cashiers who like to stack the coupons on top of the products and really if they want to do that, fine, but insinuating that you are trying to get away with stuff is wrong, and an assumption/sterotype for couponers.

      • Mama23babygirls

        They probably have had a lot of coupon fraud and are trying to protect themselves. I doubt it took that long. Maybe it seemed that way. IMO Publix needs a better system. It doesnt match up coupons, the cashiers have to.

        • Seeallmycoupons

          It took over 30 minutes to check out 2 people…my math says that is over an hour.

      • trish

        Not similiar experience, but tons of attitude from our store. Well, a good email campain from some of the coupons has made the worst publix in town the best. Corporate rearranged a few people to other stores and now management is ready for us to come in and count on it. They are hoping and so do we, that our couponing will help maintain their numbers during the slow season. I also will not hand over my coupons until it is time to pay, because it is my cash. I have no problem to let them verify. And now when I get attitude, I leave. I just let them know I thought I was shopping at Publix, where shopping is a pleasure. I must be in the wrong store, excuse me. Do not get me wrong, I am very considerate and talk to everyone. But coupons are money too and in most cases, it is more money to a store than my own green stuff because of that handling fee. And I am playing by their rules, so I will leave if they can not play by their own rules. As for cashiers, if you can't handle coupons, then you are in the wrong job.

    • Nini_beans

      Don't bother trying for the Tombstone coupons. They make you go through the whole sign up, telling you along the way that they are about to print and then at long last you get a screen that says sorry no more Q's for this!

    • itismedia

      Savannah Shoppers – Check your Penny Saver. There is a 5.00/30.00 purchase from Publix in it today. =+)

    • Shmoopie202

      Got a really good deal on The tampons I had a $3 off 2 coupon (my mom gave it to mee so not sure where she got it- sorry) and the walgreens $1 off so I got both boxes for like .29 total! Also look at the razors that are on sale some have 4 razors in them and still on sale – bought one- used the $3 coupon and had .25 profit! (my public lets you great one of BOGO for half – I live in SC)

    • Kim

      Ok I have BOGO coupons for powerade Publix has them on sale BOGO how would I use this or can I?
      Thanks love this site

      • They would be completely free, Kim. We had these too and used them yesterday!

    • stephc23

      This is the latest info I could find on the Publix coupon policy change…not much info, yet. http://www.theledger.com/artic

    • yesterday the Natures Own was 2/$2 today it was 2/$2.89 why the giant jump??

      • katherine

        global wheat market prices maybe? Poor harvests in Australia, Russia, and the midwest (down by +58%) are driving prices up.

    • Mama23babygirls

      Maries is not on BOGO in FL. Its 2 for $5 though

    • Rosieharv1

      Anyone have any idea on how to enable smartsource coupons. I am trying to get “Fruit 2 Day” and it will not give me access to coupons. I have enabled Active X and Java as they requested, but I still cannot get it. It keeps telling me to send them an email and I still haven't gotten an answer. Is anyone else having this problem or have you had it and can let me know how to fix it.


      • Mckinnonwendy

        try not using internet explorer and switch to google chrome

        • Rosieharv1

          Thanks for the help – I tried downloading google chrome (vesry fast response time) but it still wouldn't print the coupon –

          Any other ideas – I have Active X installed and Java which is all that is required, but it tells me it is disabled.

          • I always have trouble printing smartsource coupons on google chrome. Have you tried Mozilla Firefox? If internet explorer isn't working for you, I'd try that. Hope this helps.

    • 75piglet

      I'm fairly new to couponing. Can someone explain to me how a B1G1 item is free with a B1G1 coupon? How does this work? And how do you explain it to a cashier? Thanks.

      • Sandy

        It really depends on where you live. In Florida, one item will ring up full price the other item will be free. So, the manufacturer coupon will cover the cost of the item you are paying for.

        At other Publix's both items ring up half price. So, you will end up paying half price for two items.

    • Audreywilliam

      what is the purpose of an unadvertised deal? and are these in certain stores only?

      • Sb

        Jenny puts the list together before the sale starts using an ad that she has. After the sale, her (or someone who works for her) goes to the store and finds deals that aren't mentioned in the advertisement. They are listed here. You won't find them at every store, but generally this list matches what's on sale at my Publix.

    • Kimberly

      I thought some of these were only at the store that was having a grand opening. The Campari's are fantastic.

    • Joy

      Just checking, these deals run from 4/25-5/4??

      • Swaltz1


    • Robin

      I cannot thank Publix enough for being open and helping those of us in Huntsville, AL. They were open and helping everyone during this tragedy. Thanks to the kind man who helped me lug charcoal and items to my car Thursday night. He was from the Publix in Nashville. I cannot thank this company enough!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I Heart Publix!!!

    • Rosieharv1

      Help !! I still can't get smart source coupos to print. I tried using other browsers as suggested by several of you (thank you) however it is not working. Does anyone else have this problem? My response when I tried to print is “disabled and contact us and and use this code” I have done that 3 times but haven't been successful in getting a reply.
      Thanks for any help – it is so frustrating.

    • Neeta

      Came across this on another coupon blog. Didn't know if any of you saw it.
