    • tell me again, please–will Publix accept blatantly Target coups?

      • Georgia Girl

        Our stores in Fayetteville, GA will NOT accept any Target coupons at all. They do not consider them a competitor. HTH!

        • Terry

          The Publix in McDonough on 20/81 accepted Target coupons as of a few months ago (There is a Target close by on Jonesboro Rd). Just to be sure, call first to find out.

          • Georgia Girl

            Thanks for your input Terry. This just took place five weeks ago according to our manager. He even showed me the Corporate email sent out to all of the stores. What a bummer! I still love Publix. There’s simply no comparison with Kroger.

            • Kay

              Stockbridge Store on East Atlanta Rd takes them too. It may be closer.

          • Andrea

            Do you know if the Publix on Hwy 155 in McDonough, GA take Targets coupons? Thanks,

            • They taki them with the target Logo on them, but not if it is a Target store coupon or target web coupon. As long as it says retailer or manf on it even with the logo they took mine at least.

          • Tylisa

            Not sure where everyone lives, but the Publix in Conyers takes Target coupons, even though the nearby Target is not a “Super” store.

        • jessica

          yes you are right but these are mauf coupons so they will take them.

          • Kristi

            I tried to use Target web coupons yesterday at the Publix on 85 in Fayetteville, GA and the cashier said they are not allowed to take Target coupons because it is not a supermarket. She said corporate just recently sent a memo about Target coupons. Does Publix do price matching?

            • lena

              My publix in conyers 138 take the target along with cvs, riteaid, walgreens, kroger, ingles. I think that may be all. I’m very lucky. I still don’t save as much as some people as i’m still learning.

      • Michelle in Martinez

        The ones in the Augusta area don’t accept them at all. :(

        • Sara B

          Neither does the Publix in Aiken… bummer!

      • OK, though, maybe if it says at the top MANUFACTURERS COUPON, but
        just happens to have that little target circle on it?

      • PS I’m a real chicken in these matters.

        • Brianna

          The Publix in Birmingham will accept them.

          • LH

            The Hoover Publix and Hwy 31 & 261 Publix will both take Target coupons.

            • Ln

              the one in trussville does

            • Alabaster on 119 will allow you to use only one Target coupon per quantity…so if you buy 3 Lysol,and have 3 Target coupons…they will only accept 1 Target coupon and discount only 1 Lysol…and they just started this because of so much outcry of them not accepting the Target coupons in the first place,also they will no longer take drugstore coupons

          • Meredith

            Lee Branch on 280 does too

        • Carla

          The Publix in Vestavia will NOT!

          • leigh

            The Publix on Valleydale will accept them ONLY if they say “SuperTarget.”

      • Noelle

        Nancy, it depends on the store so ask. Mine (Atlanta) does accept them because there is a Target in the same shopping complex so they consider them a competitor. Also, FYI, the GE coupon is a manufacturer’s coupon, not a Target coupon.

      • meg

        The Sixes Road Canton GA store takes them as competitor coupons.

      • katie

        Our Pubix on Mobile Hwy in Pensacola, Fl does take ALL coupons from Target.

      • tabitha

        publix in lexington, sc will not take harvey, walgreens, riteaid, cvs or target. its got to be a full grocery store

      • Our Publix does not accept Target coupons. Columbia, SC

        • Publix does accept MFG’s coupon with Target Logo. Columbia, SC

      • amyfurlong

        yes (as long as there is a local Target) AND they are nice about it. In Prattville they also accept Winn Dixie and the military commissary store coupons

    • I can’t find the GE bulbs…it takes me to Target web site……does anyone know whan zip will work for the Success rice…the 2 listed doesn’t work for me…Thanks

      • Jenny

        It is a coupon under household on Targets coupons. It is a manufacturer coupon though. Just has a Target logo.

        • Georgia Girl

          Jenny, About five weeks ago our Publix, in Fayetteville Ga has said they will no longer accept ANY Target coupons or ANY Cents off coupons of any sort from ANY store. If, the coupon says a specific amount off of a particular item, they will take that, none others. Seems, from talking to him, the manager, that decision came down from the corporate stores and is in the process of filtering through all of the their stores. I also asked him about a coupon policy and he said Publix has NO such thing. What is your take on all of this.

        • Leslie

          I tried to print it but my computer won’t link to that site; it keeps telling me it will print and the installation is done, but nothing happens. Anyone else have this problem?

    • Amy

      Thanks Jenny! I’ll definitely wait til Thurs. for the Halls & light bulbs–Publix is so much easier than Kroger for free items!

    • jenn

      Do you know if the Publix in Lexington, SC will take the Target logo coupons. The Batesburg Bi-Lo would not even take it; usually they are not picky like that, but the computer beeped and the lady said the computer did not recognize the coupon. It was the target coupon for $5/4 boxes of kelloggs cereal…

      • Michelle

        I tried to use that coupon at Food Lion this weekend, and it beeped also. The cashier took it to a supervisor, who said they couldn’t take it. I then went to Ingles to use it, and I realized that it says for 10 oz. or larger boxes. I was sure to get only boxes that were over 10 oz., and the coupon worked fine. The boxes I was trying to buy at Food Lion weren’t large enough, which is why it beeped.

      • Stacey

        I’ve had no problems with that one at Publix in Lexington or Hardscrabble. I did have trouble with it at Bi-Lo this weekend. The manager took it but explained to me “this one time courtesy” because even though it was a manufacturer q, other area stores were reporting not getting reimbursed because it is seen as a Target q. I told him that should not be the case because it said it is a manu.q that starts with 5 and no where does it say redeem only at Target.

      • Jennifer

        I just used that coupon last week at Bi-Lo in Batesburg last week. I think it just who you get.

      • Julie

        I just came from the Publix in Columbia (Gervais St) they do not accept the Target coupons anymore, and she said that is store wide. Bummer!!

      • Jennifer

        I’ve had the Publix in Lexington tell me they did not accept Target coupons because Target is not a “grocery” store. I guess it just depends on what cashier you get.

      • Lena

        I used the $5/4 Kellogg’s cereal q at the Friarsgate Bi-Lo in Irmo and it beeped. But without me even saying anything the young girl working just looked at it and then manually typed in $2.50 twice. Then it accepted it…..not sure what that means except that I got my $5 off :-)

    • Amy B.

      You are awesome! Thanks for the heads up!!!

    • Amy T.

      Wow – GE light bulbs Q is gone!

      • D.W.

        I was just able to print 1. Found it under “household” on target coupon website.

        • Amy T.

          Hmmm, I may have printed it already – sometimes it’s hard to keep track!

      • Becky

        It can’t be gone cause I just printed 2 of them!

    • Christie

      I have found BOGO coupons on a tearpad at Food Lion and BiLo for the Halls cough drops too.

      • Jenni

        Recently? I am planning a trip to both stores soon, so I will make sure to keep an eye out for this. Thanks for the tip!

    • Michelle in Martinez

      Mine Publix stores won’t take Target coupons or Sav-A-Lot coupons.

    • Michelle

      The DenTek coupon says “Save $1.00 on any DenTek Floss Picks $2 or more.” Will that still make them free?

      • jenny q.

        Wht zip code did u find the Den Tek under please :-)

      • Chrissy

        This is what I read on another site:
        DenTek Floss Picks, 90 ct pkg, 10/$10

    • I printed the lightbulbs, Halls and the Scotties only printed @ 50 cents for 1 box. Thanks Jenny !

      I gave Target my “Pepe Le Pew Stink Award” for limiting coupon prints ! I think they must have made a deal with all their competitors not to have the unlimited print coupons ?

      • Joy

        If you answered that you WERE a regular Scotties user, then it only gives 50 cents. You have to answer that you are NOT a regular user to get the $1. I happen to be NOT a regular user, so it worked out nicely for me. But, unless you live in FL, it will double and so should still work out nicely. HTH

        • Natalie559

          GREAT tip!

      • JJ

        Scotties you can redo it but check no u r not a regular and it will give u the $1 coupon. HTH

    • my Scotties coupon only prints at .50 . Has anyone else had this happen?

      • Beth

        It will double.

        • Robin

          I just printed one and it was for $1 off of any one. I answered “no” to the “Are you a regular scotties user” question. Maybe that is why it prints different amounts. Might be helpful for the land of no doubles

    • Brenda

      My tissue prints for 50 cents rather than $1. Only let me print once. Still good to have! Thanks Jenny.

      • LindaB

        Look for the box that says user/not a user at the bottome of the page then click you do not use then the Q comes up $1.00 instead of .50! Guess they want the non-users to try their product…

    • julie

      are this free when doubled…. live in no land of doubles…………. would be nice if you can list please… and hey how about that early ad can we get it ???

      • Jenny

        Right now I can’t post this before Tuesday night. I am working with Publix to get approval for earlier but can’t break their online copyright rules.

        • julie

          Oh I meant to ask I guess we cant go to the store and ask for it too lol thanks I will wait till tuesday!!!

    • Newbie

      Jenny I can’t stand it any longer!! PLEASE share next week’s Publix ad with us now…I am so addicted :)

      • Stacey

        go to hotcouponworld site as the ad is usually posted on there by noon on monday

        • Newbie

          OMG! I am a kid in a candy store right now! Thank you, Stacey :)

      • emily

        try iheartpublix.com sorry jenny (your site is WAY BETTER!) but she does have a publix sneak peak each week.

      • Amy G

        it’s also on i heart publix alreadty too!

    • I got mine to print

    • Target still has the GE light bulb coupon, I just printed it.

    • Elise

      Can someone PLEASE help me. I downloaded the Target coupon activator/printer and now I can’t print any internet coupons. It says each time that it printed, but it’s not going to my printer. I printed the Scotties fine and then wne to the Target one next. Any help is appreciated!!

      • Leslie

        I had the same problem (posted on another comment)! I’m not computer savvy so I’m not sure how to fix it.

        • Toni

          If you just downloaded the coupon installer (like I had to) and are using internet explorer, there is a little bar that will appear at the top of the page. You have to click on that and they will print immediately. Hope that helps.

    • Misty

      I can’t find the Hall’s Qs. tried 2 zip codes and neither worked.

      • Gina

        Try zip cod 03809

      • jessica

        30004 works for halls coupon also.

    • Jenni

      Thanks for the heads up! I got all the ones I could use. I skipped the Target and Sav-A-Lot coups, as they are not accepted at any of my area Publix stores.

    • How do you get an early Publix ad?

    • Jenna

      You can go to HCW, SD or iheartpublix as they all have the sneak peek up (usually wiht match ups by end of day!)

    • Mary Wirkus

      The Publix in Ooltewah, TN will accept competitors coupons including Target and Sav-a-Lot. I called and they said that corporate encourages them to accept these coupons. Make sure to ask at your local Publix. It’s worth a phone call to save more money!

    • jamie

      I can’t get the target coupons to print b/c of my printer setting ? can anyone help?

    • Angie

      What zip are are you finding the DenTek flossers coupon under? Thanks for your help!

    • Deb

      Jenn, gotta leave that “chicken” attitude at home when dealing with these stores & their varied Q-policies, if not, they’ll intimidate you right the front door :)
      Our Publix stores in Acworth, Marietta(Barrett Pkwy) and Kennesaw(Wade Green) all take Taget Q’s cheerfully.

    • Donna

      First time here …confused the first coupon indicated that it was $1 off Scotties…but when I printed the coupon it was 50 cents why the difference? Thanks for providing this service….Donna

    • Foxfunds

      HEADS UP EVERYONE!!! There is a new set of Q’s at customer service for $2 on MILK, $2 on PRODUCE, and $2 on bottled water wyb Kellogg’s products!! Not sure if there are enough match-ups with Q’s on the Kellogg’s products with sales this week – but you know there will be soon enough. :D

    • misti

      hey dont forget the .40 off 1 coupon for betty crocker snacks (its got a pic of Bugs snacks but it is good for any variety!)

    • I am a cashier at the Ooltewah, TN Publix. We gladly take Target coupons along with many other competitors coupons. We do not take Harveys. We don’t ever know where there is one located closeby so they are not considered a comnpetitor. Stop in to see us. We hope your shopping experience will be a pleasant one.

      • AngelaDH

        It always is. :) We love our Ooltewah store! :)

      • Maranda

        I agree, I have never had a Problem using my coupons at the Ooltewah Publix. The cashiers are always great and well informed on policies! I love my weekly trip there, my only complaint is they never seem to have the coupon books I am looking for even at the service desk. I occasionally get lucky though and it’s like finding treasure. :)

      • JoAnne

        Hi, I shop at the Publix in Macon, GA which is 53 miles from my house and it’s worth the trip! I have been trying to convert my sister from the Kroger in Gainesville, GA to Publix and with Kroger’s new coupon policy today of only doubling 1 coupon up to 50 cents, she may soon catch up with her big sister and get on the Publix train!!!

    • Sean

      Zip Code for Dentek anybody?

      • I would like to know that to. I can’t find the Dentek Q

      • Melinda

        Sorry Sean, but I tried about 6 different zip and I couldn’t find it either.

      • Jenni

        They may be gone now. I got 2, but I had to go through the manufacturer’s website, I believe.

        • Christy

          For the flossers, I registered at the site, got an e-mail that said I was a registered user. At the bottom of the e-mail, it shows that you can pull them up on Facebook. When I clicked on their Facebook page, that is where I printed two off. However, it says $1.00 off $2.00 or more; I hope that this still makes it free :). Thanks Jenni for all you do. You rock my grocery bill!!

    • Amy

      I live in Lakeland florida, home of publix corp. headquarters, and i have never had a problem at any publix with competitors coupons.My you should get a copy of their policy and take it into your local store. A good friend of mine is a district manager for publix and thats what he told me to do if i ever have a problem like this.He also said the competitors coupon must be within a 20 mile square radius.

    • Sarah

      thanks for the heads up Jenny! I dont mind waiting for the full ad to be posted when you give us these little sneak peaks!

    • elizabeth

      Get the healthy choice coupon too if you’re into frozen meals…there is a publix q in the yellow advantage flier and I’m sure they’ll go bogo or 4 for 10 soon…http://bricks.coupons.com/Start.asp?tqnm=zakfcch9999255&bt=wg&o=61153&c=RP&p=sKXkmp4P

    • amy

      please help..my smartsource coupons will not print…it just shows the page with the “S” and says if it does not work to try and few things like enable java etc and I did what they asked, I think. They were printing before..is there a way to reinstall? THANK YOU

      • If you are printing in Internet Explorer, copy the link, paste it into Firefox and try printing from FF, or vice versa. That always works for me, however you will have to re-select the coupons you want. I’ve heard there is an easier way to do this, but I dont’ know what it is.

        • When it happens to me I restart my computer and that always has worked.

    • Jen

      ditto on getting the dentek Q from facebook! search for “dentek oral care”.

    • Sara B

      just out of curiosity, maybe this is a no no as far as printing coupons goes, i don’t know, but maybe someone can clue me in? are you able to use different web browsers to print multiples of a coupon? my laptop has 4 browsers installed (IE, FF, opera and AOL) i know that my computer is set to configure a new IP address each time i log onto the internet, but i don’t want to feel like i’m “cheating” by printing out more than i am supposed to because i know these sites have limits to how many of each coupon you can print…. would this be considered a bad thing? TIA ladies!

      • Robin

        I have done this before and sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t

      • Elyn

        I have 5 computers in my house and on really good coupons sometimes print on all of them. But I have a small family so I don’t bother unless it is an excellent deal.

    • Elise

      My computer was acting up yesterday and I didn’t get to print the light bulb coupon. I just went to this site and there are coupons. Don’t know how it will correspond to what’s on sale, but just in case.

    • My problem with smartsource is when i print they are too big and cut off on my paper, it cuts off half the coupon, its the only site that does that, ANy suggestions??

    • Christy


    • My S. Tampa Publix doesn’t accept Target coupons. I also recieved a Sneak Peek ad in the mail today from Publix! Progresso Soups BOGO, Tyson Chicken Nuggets BOGO, Smuckers Jelly BOGO…..I have the full list on my blog.

    • keb2009

      just a heads up for anyone in anderson, sc that they will not take these with the target logo even though they have manufacturers coupon on them.

    • Erika

      Why is it that when you print a coupon one time and say you come back a month later to print another one it will not allow you to do so?

    • JoAnne

      Lori, if you look down on the left side, go to household, lightbulbs are in that category, if you don’t click down the list it will only give you the grocery coupons, also that’s how to get to the cleaning supplies. Is this Lori in Dawsonville, GA, my sister?

    • JoAnne

      Athen, Ga Publix takes Target coupons, Gainesville, Ga Publix does not take Target since they don’t consider it a grocery store. Macon, GA Publix does take Target.

    • Katie

      Is anyone familiar with the Publix at Atlantic Station in Atlanta? Do they accept Target coupons?
