      Hey everyone! Were getting a Publix in our town, FINALLY :),,and I was just curious—Is it true you can stack manf Q’s w/store Q’s and I also read where u can stack those 2 PLUS a competitors coupon as well, making it 3 coupons for 1 item??? Also-Can you do SEVERAL $10+ transactions to get more than 1 penny item??? (I promise Im not a shelf-clearer ;)….Thanks for the input!

      • carlene

        You can do several transactions but most stores require the penny item Q out of the local paper so you would have to have several penny item 
        Q  to get an item for each transaction.  Also I have found that if you do one transaction after another they will not let you get the penny item but if you do one transaction, walk away and do the other with another cashier then it will work.

        • AP

          Or get your hubby or a friend to do the 2nd transaction! :-)

      • carlene

        Also, it all depending on the store as to the three Q’s per item.  My store will not allow all three.  They will allow a Man W/ a store OR a competitor, not all three for one item.

        I am not sure about the 3 coupons for one item but to answer your question about several transaction to get more than one penny item…my store requires a penny item coupon which is found in our newspaper and you can only use that coupon per one transaction.

      • Jessmender

        Very few Publix stores will let you use the 3 coupons (although more used to).  That is because the store covers the cost of the competitor’s coupon, plus the cost of the store coupon, so they get hit twice when people do that.  When you use a manufacturer’s coupon, the manufacturer covers that cost.  When a penny item is really good, I have gone to multiple stores to get more than one of them because there are several Publix stores near where I live.  Time consuming, but sometimes worth it if you have the time!  Jenny also has Publix’s detailed coupon policy on this website.

    • carlene

      I though tit was $10 total after coupons ?  Any feedback ?  I believe my store requires the total to be $10 after all other coupons have been used.

        I can’t speak for everyone but I’m in Birmingham and in my experience its always been $10 before coupons.

    • Ashley

      Anyone know what public item is in greenville?

    • RainAngel757

      Got a “sweet” surprise when I got my penny item… the 24 oz was a penny only too, so yeah!

    • Beth

      Is the penny item coupon available online? I hate to spend the money to buy a paper when sometimes the penny item isn’t much more than one dollar.

      • Wendy

        no, just in papers

    • Carla_grier

      What paper is the coupon in??

      • Wendy

        I get mine from the Living section of the AJC on Thurs.

      Poo, my penny item was hot cocoa instead.

    • Mblucas

      Our Publix  in LaGrange, Georgia said they were going to stop the penny item. January 25th was our last penny item. So sad since senior citizens depend on this savings. Betty

    • Rachael

      Does anyone know where the penny item coupon is in the 1/29 ajc paper? My publix in cumming, ga is now requiring you to have the actual coupon to get it.
