      Hunts Tomatoes: There is a Buy 3/Get 1 FREE coupon in the Creative Comfort Food Booklet.

      • libby

        I haven’t seen that booklet

    • Brad

      Hey, I know you don’t have a Bloom in Columbia, however; they have been having triple coupons all this past month, and are continuing this next month. I use another site, for the Bloom stuff and it is “OK” to use and they have some of the ads listed, although it is NOT as user friendly as your site.
      Not sure if I should post that info here, so I won’t. I follow the Publix adds mainly.


      • what website do you use for bloom? Thanks!

    • Melisa

      I did not have a $5 off $15 in my Parade (I’m in ATL).

      Is it possible to still locate the 5/15 unilever? Where would I find that?

      Thanks! Love this site & very new to the couponing

      • Kay J

        They were in the St.Pete papers in Florida.

      • Tamara

        I have 20 papers from Columbia, SC and I couldn’t find it here.

    • Michelle in Martinez

      the following coupon links did not work:
      bumblebee tuna
      knorr sides
      crescent rolls (listed as new coupon)

      this week isn’t so great for me at publix. :(

      • The Knorr link worked for me. The coupon prints in Spanish.

        • ZJ

          I was able to print in Spanish as well. Will the stores care that the coupon is in Spanish?

          • Victoria

            I have always been able to use the Spanish coupons – my link worked.

            • Kimber

              I can’t get the link to work but have used them in the past and they worked fine. Funny how you can’t read it but you can still use it!

          • Jarrod

            Just say No Hab-lo S-pan-yole and you should be kosher

          • Jenny

            It depends on the store and the cashier. If you can find someone to translate the spanish into English and write it on the coupon, you should be fine. They just want to be very sure you’re buying the product you’re supposed to be.

            • Mandy Gabers

              It is off any knorr product

      • Michelle in Martinez

        this is the message i get for knorr:
        Sorry! You have already printed
        this coupon the number of times allowed.
        i think i have only ever printed a knorr coupon two times, and it’s been at least a month if not longer, so i don’t know why it’s giving me that message. :(

        • Susan

          I printed 2 awhile back, and it will not let me print either. I guess it did not reset on the first of the month. :(

    • Ashley

      Can you use a publix coupon and a competitors coupon together?
      I am pretty sure the answer is no but just wanted to make sure.

      • Ashley

        Just read the policy at the top that says you can!!

        • Wow! I was just going to post and tell you know..then I scrolled back to the top…thanks for pointing this out!!!

          • I meant “no”, not “know”.

        • Sarah R

          My Publix will NOT accept a Publix coupon and a Competitor coupon together. They consider a competitor coupon like a Publix coupon. You may want to check with your Publix store.

          • Debbie

            I tried to use a manuf. coupon from Food Lion (Catalina) and a Publix coupon on diapers and the girl would not accept it. She said they both are store coupons.

        • Janey

          I’m pretty sure that is a typo in the “remember” section. This is confusing, so I’m not sure how the best, succinct way to word it would be. But in drawn-out, long hand…

          I was recently at the workshop and she said that competitor coupons are considered store coupons just like Publix coupons are store coupons. You can stack a store coupon (be it Publix OR a competitors) with a manufacturers coupon. But – just like you can’t use two manufacturers coupons for the same item – you also can’t use two store coupons for the same item. So you can’t use a competitors coupon AND a Publix coupon for the same item. You can use EITHER a competitors coupon OR a Publix coupon AND a manufacturers coupon for the same item.

          Of course, my understanding could be completely off! Not like that has never happened :-)

      • Julia

        It depends on the store. My friend works in Mt P and her store changed their policy to accept store, competitor, and manufact coupons on each item! They had to initial a sheet that says they will accept them. My store won’t take 2 store coupons on the same item (like a Publix and a Food Lion), but they will take a store and a manufact.

        • jennifer

          which store in Mt P does your friend work at? I usually go to Park West.

      • Jenny

        I think it depends on your store…my store says no…because they count the Publix coupon as a store coupon AND the food lion (or whaterver) coupon as a store coupon…and you can’t use two store coupons.
        Hopefully your Publix will let you!!

        • Tarrah R.

          Same here- with the ‘new coupon policy’ it is only one for me as well.

      • Jennifer

        Jenny can you clarify. I thought a competitor coupon is the same as a store coupon, therefore you can only stack two coupons per items, i.e. store or competitor and manufacturer. I shop at Hixson Publix and they do NOT allow a store with a competitor coupon.

      • Kayla

        I work in the office at a Publix in FL, and you are not supposed to take a Publix and a competitor coupon for the same item, because when the cashier rings up as competitor coupon, the accounting system counts those as a store coupon. Hope this helps.

    • Knorr did not work I entered the info went to print and nothing happened. Of course I’m an American so normally I look for things in English. But a q is a q !!

      • Try again, I think Jenny might have updated the link because it worked for me!

      • Michelle

        It worked for me as well….but I actually did it a few days ago as i was on one of he advantage buy lists.

    • Val

      I was hoping that capri sun or kool aid jammers would be on sale to make the nabisco deal even better. Oh well… maybe a competitor coupon will have them covered.

      • Mary

        Capri sun this next week…Will help to get the Nabisco rebate sent in!

    • Kristin

      I have a $.75/1 Any Quick Cook Ronzoni Pasta will this work at Publix this week?

      • Jenny

        It’s not the variety that is on sale :( It’s just the basic pasta that they have B1G1.

    • AngelaDH

      There are $1/2 Ronzoni Pasta on couponbug.com an also on Ronzoni’s website. :)

      • Are the special ones part of the sale? Usually they aren’t included.

        • AngelaDH

          They were last time at the Ooltewah Publix. I’m hoping so this time!

      • AngelaDH

        So this time the Whole Wheat Ronzoni isn’t included. :'(

    • Heidi

      Is the Hunts a good deal at 39 cents each, or would it be cheaper at Aldi?

      • Beth

        It’s only 25 cents at Aldi. Better deal there!

      • Lyn

        Are you asking about the ketchup or the canned tomaotes? I didn’t know that canned tomatoes were only .25 at Aldi!

      • Daphne

        Canned tomatoes are $.49 at my Aldi.

    • Michelle

      I am travelling to Orlando this Saturday and getting my coupons together for the Publix near where I am staying (for a week). If you are in Orlando, can you tell me who they consider competitors? I called the store and they don’t consider Rite Aid a competitor. I should have asked who they consider but the woman I spoke with was a litle snippy so I just thanked her for her time and hung up. Thanks!

      • Amber

        Publix in central FL consider Food Lion, Winn Dixie and Target competitors. Depending on the cashier you might be able to use Walgreens or CVS- but that is rare. I’ll sometimes go to Winn Dixie to buy 1 thing and get the $10 off $50 q that prints at the register to use at Publix. Love that.

      • BeachyMum

        Depends on the part of Orlando. Orlando is pretty vast, and before moving to the coast we lived in East Orlando/Winter Park…there were no Food Lions near us, so that was not a competitor.

        Competitors were: Winn-Dixie, Albertson’s, SuperTarget. If you are hoping to use really aggressive competitor’s coupons, just Google the store to see if they have a location near you.

        Enjoy your visit…the weather is wonderful this time of year! ;-)

        • Kim

          It really depends. I am an hour from Orlando and in my direct area Publix only accepts Winn-dixie; however, if I drive North 20 minutes to Ocala that publix accepts… Target, CVS, Walgreens, Winn-Dixie. Food Lion is Typically Ocala and North so Orlando probably wont accept. I suggest you go to Publix.com and call each store. They generally are close together in Orlando.

          Good Luck

          • I am from East Orlando. My area Publix do not accept any Drugstore coupons, ever at all. The manager told me from a area wide meeting they decided that they would consider competitors any store in the Orlando Metro area, so even if a Whole Foods is not around the store but may be in Orlando (for instance near your work site) they would consider that a competitor. They are really wishy-washy though so you might just try anything…they seem to change their minds weekly!!!!!!!!

    • Ruth

      Betty Crocker Potatoes rang up @ 2/$1.59, so with $.40 q’s they are free!

    • ZJ

      For the “B1G1 Neosporin Lip Health Daily Hydration or Overnight Therapy” deal, can we use the “B1G1 Neosporin Lip Therapy Publix Green Advantage Buy (manf coupon” coupon to get both free?

      • Michelle

        The Neosporin is on sale for $4.49 so using the advantage buy coupon, you would get two for $4.49, but you could pair that coupon with a $1.00 off and get two for $3.49….I don’t see a way to get both for free. Anyone else?

        • Here’s a coupon for $3 OFF Neosporin Lip Health Products!


          • That coupon was put out early last week and there aren’t any prints left after you fill out the form. Keep an eye out – maybe it will reset.

            • Thanks Jenny – I printed it when I saw it!

            • Lyn

              FYI, I just signed up and it let me print it out :-). I guess it did reset.

    • Tarrah R.

      What about the $2/2 Fiber added items in RP 8/30. Stack that with the $1/2 Target coupon, $.65 for the cereal- then get the bag free. OR for even BETTER deal- use the $2/2 Fiber items coupon on the Toaster pastries to make them $.14/each PLUS Free bag!

      • Tarrah R.

        Nix this

    • Tarrah R.

      ****DEAL IDEA*****
      forgot to add that
      If you use the $2/2 Fiber added items in RP 8/30, and Stack that with the $1/2 Target coupon, $.65 for the cereal- then get the bag free. OR for even BETTER deal- use the $2/2 Fiber items coupon on the Toaster pastries to make them $.14/each PLUS Free bag!

      • Tarrah R.

        Sorry, sorry….I got ahead of myself- It is for Kelloggs items, not General Mills, so it doesn’t work wth this sale. :-(

        • heather

          There are 1/2 and .75/1 general mills cereal coupons on the coupons.com website. Also there is a 1/3 from the 10-4ss combine this with the target 1/2 gm cereal and the free tote bag for every two cereals you can get a great deal.

    • Victoria

      I cannot find the Nissin chow mein noodles coupon in my SS – is there anywhere else to look?

    • mel

      thanks soo much Jenny!

    • Wendy

      Went to Publix in Newnan, GA this morning and the medium bag M&Ms (Transformers package, peanut butter and strawberry) are BOGO–in-store special. So with the $1.50 Q for Orville popcorn & M&Ms, it’s a great deal!

      Has anyone else noticed the Publix cashiers make sure the printed coupons don’t double? Even though many coupons say “do not double” at the top, I’ve never seen cashiers adjust it and follow that until recently. They don’t do it on manufacture coupons from the newspaper–just online printable ones. Strange.

      • Chrissy

        Hey Wendy, I’m from Newnan too. What Publix are you shopping at? I shop at all three, and I have never had a cashier keep the IP coupon from doubling. Although I did have one lady the other day who laid all my coupons out and rang them up as she did the items. It really got on my nerves and took her so long. So obnixious!

        • Wendy

          Chrissy–I usually shop the Thomas Crossroads Publix. It was two different ladies the last two weeks that made sure my IP didn’t double, which changes my shopping list. I was thinking it’s a new Publix policy or something.

          • Lisa

            Wendy, the publix in Cartersville, GA will not double “do not double” coupons either.

            • Melissa

              I despise the Cartersville Publix. I drove all around it yesterday doing shops at Rite Aid/Walmart/Target, but drive out of town to shop at a different Publix. There are two not far down the road that doesn’t treat coupon-customers like theives and con artists.

            • Wendy

              Okay, I went to a different Publix in Newnan today (on Bullsboro) and bought some Betty Crocker frosting with a .50 coupon, and the cashier pressed a button that read “bonus coupon supressed” on my receipt, so not doubling coupons are becoming more common around here. Argh!

            • I shop at the Cartersville Publix every week and they double every $.50 coupon I have except for the competitor ones. There is one particular cashier that I have gotten in the past that does all that technical checking but I have never had any of the other cashiers do that. I even had a manager approve coupons for items I though matched up for a certain item but really didn’t when I looked closer at the coupon and the manager took it anyway. I have had better luck there than the Dallas location. I live 20 min from both. They are the closest to me, where as Cedarcrest is closer to 30 min away.

          • Michelle

            I had the same thing happen to me at the Publix in Kingsland, GA and it took over 30 minutes to ring up one(1) cart of groceries. I was so frustrated when I left. As were the customers stuck behind me!

            • Tasha

              Melissa, Me too (for the Cartersville Publix), I just go down the road to Cedarcrest and they are very coupon friendly. Have you emailed Publix on that Cartersville store ?

            • Shannon

              We are blessed here in Savannah. The Publix I visit just got a new store manager and he told his cashiers to take any coupons and not to pitch a fit. Of course, I strongly believe that e-mailing corporate about any issues is the best way to get your store on your side. I did this several months ago because I was treated poorly by cashiers because of my coupons. The store manager called me within a few days of my sending the e-mail to speak with me directly about my concerns. He seemed to understand my issues and my next visit was so much better.

      • AngelaDH

        Talk with the manager. Some cashiers at the Ooltewah Publix were suppressing doubling but I double checked with the manager and he said it was store policy to double. They have since spoken with the cashiers and I haven’t seen one do it since.

        • Ann

          The Publix in Anderson, SC on Hwy 81 says they have a “new” policy. They must have all of your coupons before they start ringing groceries. Then they have to pair the coupon with the item and scan the coupon after scanning the item. It is very frustrating and takes sooooo long now. I think I’m going to complain to corporate.

          • Jenny

            I know it is time consuming but it a corporate policy that has been out for a while. They have a large issue with their computer system chain wide and have had many folks learn how to work the system. Don’t worry this won’t be issue in a few more months, we just have to let them match things for now.

    • Kandrea

      I can’t print the Fresh Express salad link. I tried from the BiLo ad and the Publix ad, but I keep getting an error message. Anyone else having this problem?

    • Joy

      The Publix on Harbison would NOT take any of the pdf Publix web coupons. I tried to get some of the shopping bags free but they told me that Publix does NOT put their coupons on the web…that those were not authorized coupons….bummer. Anybody else have a problem with those coupons????

      • Sarah R

        I used the coupon for the free bags that I printed off the web and they accepted it. ??? Sorry!

      • Moral of the story: Don’t use your coupons at Harbison store. They are the worst in this area…. This should be a problem. General Mills posted them there for all to use. I would call and speak to the manager.

        • ZJ

          My neighborhood publix is knit-picky like that as well…I just drive 5 mins more to another one; they never give me grief (and even go out of their way to make sure everything scans)! It’s sad that we have to go out of our way to avoid the drama!

          • Tamara

            Harbison is the WORST. I used to shop there until I started seriously couponing in April of this year. Go to the Hwy. 6 store. It is the best one in our area. It is worth it not to deal with the hassle or be embarrased.

      • Jen

        Doesn’t it say on the flier (from the actual newspaper), Go to _____ o download more (or something like that)? I would show them that. I have also had many problems with Harbison Publix. I wish they were better because if I could just go to that one, I could get all of my shopping done a lot faster!

      • I’m in the Marietta, Ga area and shop at Publix at Shallowford/Sandy Plains store most of the time. Last week I bought enough items to get five free bags. I did not have my coupons for them but I had Jenny’s list with me and the cashier asked the manager and he said sure and I got my free bags. He was so cooperative as most of the cashiers have been lately. In fact, my husband and I usually shop on Friday nights and the cashier we have been using told us that his wife uses coupons. He just takes the coupons and never questions any of them. This is so nice!

        • Susan- we shop at the same store. A friend of mine was always telling me about the great peelies and blinkies at the sandy plains/shallowford store (I usually shop the one at scufflegrit/sandy plains) I spoke with a manager & he said the shallowford store was the 1st metro atl publix as such it’s the “flagship” store & gets more manufacturer/vendor attention and is a training store too- ie overstaffed=great service.

          • I need to start going to that location with my mother to teach her the couponing tricks of the trade. She lives really close to that one and I use to go to Lassiter when I went to hgh school years ago. I will have to check that location out to make sure I am not missing the great blinkies.

      • After telling you that you should never shop Harbison, I made a quick stop in to get a few easy items I needed for the week since its <1 mile from my house. I used a 50¢/2 on the Hunts tomatoes. When the cashier got to that coupon he pressed the magic button and it said BONUS COUPON SUPPRESSED. This store looks VERY hard for ways to prevent you from saving money, even if you are a rule follower like me. I talked to the manager and he didn’t budge so I got my coup’s back and I’ll use them at the Ballentine store that actually wants my business.

    • Kelli

      I had a successful trip to Publix this morning and found a few good deals in the pharmacy/drug section. There was a little blinkie with $3 off of 2 J&J items. The travel first aid kits are 1.47, so that makes 2 free. I found coupons online for Sudafed and combined them with the coupons from the green flyer and got two boxes of Sudafed for less than $1 a piece.

    • Jo B

      Just a heads up about the Publix in Spring Hill. Went to purchase the Yoplait fiber yogurt packs(we love them) and was told could only use one coupon per purchase as stated on coupon. Was going to buy 4 with the coupons I had 2-$1.25 and 2-$1.00, only was allowed to use one of each. Also they only accept one competitor coupon per order. This is the result of someone using 65 Food Lion coupons on the Trail Mix and getting $65 worth of other groceries for free. It’s a shame that a few ruin it for the rest of us.!!!

      • Cassia

        I’m not sure they understood the coupon rules. When that coupon says, “one per purchase of specified product(s),” I’m pretty sure it means per item. If Yoplait really only wanted you to use one of their coupons per transaction, why would it still be OK to use one of each kind of coupon as they were both from the same company? I think the point was that Yoplait didn’t want you to use two coupons on the same package of yogurt. That’s the way it is with manufacturer coupons. Now I do understand the store limiting competitor coupons because they don’t get reimbursed for those. But it’s not the same case with manufacturer coupons.

      • something’s wrong w/what they said. you have many purchases in one transaction. so if you were purchasing 4 yoplaits and you had four individual Qs, you were OK. always ask to speak w/manager for further clarification. i’ve found that on every time that i speak with a manager when i have a problem, it is the cashier that misunderstood the issue/explanation and it is resolved.

      • Carolin

        I know what you mean. There is a very popular website like southern savers and the woman will tell you what she got and for how much. She did the deal with the trail mix food lion coupon. I’m trying to remember how many she bought. I think that it was 10 bags and this was in 1 transaction. It made me so frustrated because it’s because of people like that that makes cashiers doubt us couponers that are being honest.

        • AngelaDH

          Is that the same website that promotes stealing coupons off the front of boxes if you normally buy that item (even if you don’t plan on buying it that day)? I was so infuriated at seeing all the coupons stolen off the front of the Kashi boxes at the Ooltewah store a few weeks back. Thankfully they know who is doing it and are keeping an eye on them. I feel that they should be prosecuted for shoplifting or at least defacing merchandise!

      • Trying to use 65 FL coupons is over the top, but you have to blame the cashier, too. Store managers can set their own limits to make sure that other customers get an opportunity to purchase products and to protect the store against losses. The cashier should have called a manager when she/he was given 65 competitor’s coupons – she should know that the store takes a loss with those and that they are a courtesy to the customers, not a right. That’s called common sense and taking pride in your work.

        The cashier should be the one disciplined, not all the customers. And the store doesn’t have to react so strongly – they can set more reasonable limits instead of going from the greedy take it all to everybody gets a teeny tiny bit. And the greedy ones act like the stores are so rich that they aren’t hurting anybody. That’s my Friday night soapbox.

    • Mendy

      If anyone is going to Publix today (the sale ends today) Johnsons baby products are $1 off. If your store accepts Walgreens as a competitor (mine in Harvest, AL does) use the $1.50/1 q from this week’s sale paper. My Publix had them priced for $2.19 after the $1 off sale so I was able to get large bottles of shampoo and baby wash for free plus $0.31 overage.

      Question—when there are multiple coupons listed under a product stating where they are- is this the variations for different zip codes. I go and look for the highest coupon and often find a coupon for lower amounts?

    • Trish

      Another Publix location cracking down on coupons..
      A Co-worker and I went to the publix in Duluth and the mngr came over and stated that she could not use multiple target/competitor coupons.He said going forward she can only use 1 coupon PER VISIT not per item.
      Then later in the evening I went to my local Pulix in Lilburn on Five Fork Tricum was trying to get some of the deals before it ended today. First I was sad because there was no more scrubbing bubbles then at check out the Clerks informed me that they NO LONGER TAKE ANY COMPETITOR COUPONS. I am devastated threw my night all off.

      why do people take all the mags/fliers
      why do people try to abuse the coupon policy and make it hard for many of us trying to make ends meet. I never do any crazy couponing. I buy extra papers and spend good money on ink and researching deals to only get in the store with a game plan to only be sidelined because they went and changed the rules in the middle of the game.

      • Lyn

        They said they would not take any competitors coupons at the Lilburn one? I knew they recently said they will not take Target coupons, but I thought they would still accept Kroger as a competitor.

        • Kim

          The cashier at the Five Forks Publix told me (on Monday) that they would still take Kroger, just not Target. There are 2 Krogers within about 2 miles, so they still consider them competitors. I’m heading out there later this afternoon. I’ll report back if I have any other problems. They are usually the absolute BEST Publix around here.

          • Crystal

            I always shop and that store, and was told by the cashier yesterday that they will only take Kroger and Walmart. I have never seen Walmart coupons, and I am surprised they do not take Target since they are not too far away.

            • Kim

              We actually have 2 Super Targets within about 5-7 miles of that Five Forks store. And, I really do buy groceries there sometimes, so I’m baffled as to why they don’t see them as a competitor.

    • Terri

      Helpful Huggies Wipe coupon to stack:

      There’s a $2 off Walgreens coup in their October Coupon Book. It’s good on the 184ct.-216ct. packs. When you combine this with the manu. coup Jenny listed you’ve got a pretty good deal. I shop the E. Brainerd Rd. store in Chattanooga, TN. Walgreens is right next door-so they are considered a competitor coup.

      • Its up to each store to choose, so a call to corp will probably get you that answer.

    • Janelle

      I love the Publix on Wade Hampton in Taylors, SC! It’s so coupon-friendly. Last night I was in there and bought over $60 worth of items. I had my coupons all ready, and when I went up to the register, the cashier saw that I had them and knew of more coupons for two of the products I was purchasing in the Yellow Advantage Flyer, which she promptly pulled out of a drawer and cut out for me. A big shout-out to ANN! Thank you for saving me $4 more! I ended up spending only $20.55 which included diapers, wipes, formula and 11 other items. Oh, and ANN also gave me an extra flyer to use for future purposes. Yay!

      • Patty

        I got to meet this “Ann” person. I really need a pal at this store. Only real problem I ever seem to have there is that I have to ask for the Publix booklets and sometimes people never seem to know what I am asking for. And, they are quite often out of the deals before I can even get there. I also use the Pelham Commons Publix and the one downtown. Pelham Commons usually still has the stock. Did you know the Taylors store is the largest one in our area? Just some trivia for you.

      • Cori

        Yes, I have never had trouble with coupons at this store. They are very friendly and helpful!

        Yes, I agree that Ann should get a GREAT BIG SHOUT OUT… she is very friendly and helpful!!

    • I was recently referred to the afullcup.com website to look up specific coupons. I am able to find the coupon listing on the coupon database but when I click on the coupon it opens coupons.com which defaults to my zip code………….however I do not find the coupon I am searching for. Does anyone know how to see what zip code the coupon is listed under??????? Thanks.

    • was the bertolli oil coupon not in post and courier?
      ..and i was able to just print ONE tuna coupon from smart source under 29063. it said the limit was reached above so maybe this may help.

    • Jenny ,just to let you know ,the bogo on the Neosoprin Lip Therapy is a manufacture coupon and the publix in Lexington Sc will not take both ,either the bogo q or the $3/2 or the $1/1.

      • Patty

        I have to say, I just used this last night BUT I did have four of each Lip Therapy tubes and four coupons. I had two of the manuf coupons for BIGIF that were in the Green Advantage flyer and I also had two $3.00 off each coupons so I only paid $1.49 for two in the end (or 75 cents each). As long as you have one manuf coupon for each item, you shouldn’t have a problem. Usually, they just count the number of items…so make sure you try to follow this rule and you should always come out with a bargain and within the manuf stipulations too.

    • Hilda

      I need some help, i don`t understand something.
      I was looking at the Hunt`s tomatoes, Knorr sides,Betty Crocker potatoes, and Swanson broth. I have calculated it several times, and I don`t see how can it be the price that is listed, after coupon. do you calculate with more than one coupon? I am a starter, so I am probably wrong and don`t know something. Can you explain, please?

      • Ashley

        Remember, if the coupon is 50 cents or under than it will double at Publix unless it says “Do Not Double” which many cashiers will suppress or not double. I find that the internet coupons are more likely to have this “Do Not Double” than ones you get from the paper. So, the 40 cents becomes 80 cents off of the potatoes for example. HTH!

      • lynn

        also remember if you live in florida there are no double coupons

    • Jessica

      My publix in Gainesville had a bunch of Frosted Mini-Wheats boxes with $5 coupon packets inside for various Kellogs, Ocean Spray, and Dannon products. There are three different inserts. I grabbed three boxes and actually got one of each! Just FYI.

    • I am tired of shopping at Publix; there are 2 stores in my area. Neither have the same coupon policy and both change there policies every 2 weeks. I love to coupon, I go by the rules I play fair and am not greedy on the sales items. 1 store is only 2 blocks away. So my strategy has changed. I go there with just the sale coupons I would like to buy. I only buy the items I can use coupons for. I do not look at anything else in the store. When I get to the checkout, I inform the cashier I have coupons and ask which ones I can use that day. I am in and out of the store in 10-15 minutes.
      The rest of my shopping is done at 1 or 2 other stores that have a coupon policy that I can count on as being the same each time I go.
      This way I can stay on my list and avoid the aggravation I get when the new coupon policy goes into effect every 2 weeks. I may miss a few deals this way but it makes for a much better shopping experience.

      • Jennifer

        So sorry to hear that. I only shop Publix because they are clean & you can’t beat the quality. I hope you give them another chance. I’ve shopped with them for over 20 years and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

    • Shannon

      Does anyone know if Oreo’s will go on sale B1G1 soon? I need alot to them to make a kitty litter cake for a halloween party. I would HATE to pay $3.19 per bag! Thanks!

      • mel

        if you have a dollar general i think they are on sale for $2 this week.

      • When I made one of those I used the generic oreos and it tasted fine – people were so grossed out we practically had to show them receipts to prove that we bought the kitty litter pan and scoop new instead of using an old, used one – as if! It was fun but most would not eat it!

        Get the litter pan and scoop at the dollar store – especially if you have a Dollar General where everything’s a dollar. They might even have generic oreos there! Just get the real good pudding since that taste is so dominant.

    • Amy

      The albertsons ad has a coupon for the fresh express salad it’s B1G2 free, which is b1g1 at publix. SO get 4 bags use albertsons coupon and manf coupons makes it free + overage. YAY!! Not sure if we’ll be able to eat that much salad before it goes bad. Just wanted to share that with whoever has an albertsons near by.

      • sam

        Ya I did this deal today

    • Morgan

      I would like to thank the Southern Saver shopper who was in the Easley, SC store earlier this afternoon for not only buying ALL 17 of the Sorrento string cheese packages but also for peeling off all the $2 coupons from the other packages and promptly putting them in your purse. Just to repeat what I said to you in the store, I don’t think this is why Jenny works so hard on this website and I don’t think what you were doing was fair. I only wanted TWO packages, and I think it would have been more than appropriate for you to leave two coupons and/or packages for me to use.

      Please, please would everyone try to be considerate of others when shopping???

      • Michelle

        Wow…That was incredibly rude!

        • sam

          I agree posting comments like this isn’t going to help matters.

          • I think this post is fair – it is really rude to wipe out a store’s supplies and not think of anybody else. People don’t seem to understand that this is not a victimless crime. People complain to the store, the store loses money in some cases and eventually the store employees get an attitude towards couponers and the stores change their policies and raise prices. Play nice to protect yourself from this, even if you don’t care about anybody else.

          • Cori

            I think she was actually referring to the rude shopper, not the comment =s

      • Carol

        I agree that is very rude. I went to Publix today and planned to get a few shopping bags (with the Kelloggs purchase), and there was not one in the store because someone came in and got 250 yesterday!! That is so greedy! I can’t believe they let them get that many for free, but the manager said if I bring my receipt back in a few days, he would still let me use the coupon and get my free bags.

        • Hsv mom

          First, taking peelies off other packages and either using them on other smaller packages or putting them in your purse is the same as stealing and purchasing all the packages like that is beyond selfish. However, we all know that this kind of person is not going to feel any guilt by reading what we think. They have no conscience and no concern for anyone but themselves.They either have a form of mental illness that causes them to hoard, or are just plain rude, or possible both. I figure they are just plain RUDE!

          • Jessica

            Taking the coupon peelies off of packages that you don’t purchase is definitely stealing. Morgan was nice for not reporting her to the manager. I would have reported it and asked the manager to watch the video of her stealing the peelies on tape. I hope she is reading this and holding her head in shame.

        • libby

          how is that even possible? 250 bags?

          • Tasha

            Probably a school or organization loaded up on the bags. I went to 3 different Publix last week and could not find any of the Halloween bags at all (I had the free coupon and used it on a pink one),,,,but the Halloween ones would have made a great candy bag for the kids. The manager there said that a school came in the day before and got all the Halloween ones :(

            • Carol

              Even if the person getting 250 is doing it for a good cause, I still don’t think it’s right to clear the store out of bags (including the green ones), especially when there is a coupon out for free bags that people like me have worked into there shopping order and only wanted a few. I think the store should have made them order that many instead. I don’t see how one person could have gotten that many for free, but that is what the assistant manager told me.

      • How do you know it was a Southern Savers shopper?

        • Morgan

          She had her Southern Savers shopping list taped to the front of her cart, which I got a very good look at as I stood there patiently waiting for her to finish taking all she could get.

          • libby

            How does someone use that much cheese?

            • Teresa-QOCD

              give them out for halloween? makes no sense, dont think cheese is freezable.

            • Carol

              I have seven children who could go through 17 bags very quickly. However, that is still not a good excuse to be greedy and take peelies from bags and clear the shelf. I will not take peelies off of something that I don’t buy. I may buy a lot of one item but only if there are plenty left for other customers.

          • Cori

            My Publix imits you to 6 of what is on sale. Might be difficult to enforce, but they may have to come back more than once to get this many. When they are out, I get a raincheck and then I don’t have to worry about a deadline and they have stock the next week cuz they are not on sale. My rainchecks have always been honored.

      • lynn

        Jenny could you explain to everyone what you mean when you say stock up prices people are taking that to mean get them all…

      • CC

        Before anyone starts to critique why people purchase x amount of products, remember that buying 17 bags is just as fair as buying 2…you dont know anyone’s situation as to why they buy so many although you might only buy 2, for instance i know someone who goes and loads up on cat treats (got about 20 free bags at bilo this week) and gives them to a pet shelter…just because your family only uses 2 doesn’t mean that another shopper should only buy as much as you think acceptable, stores are stocked and the buyer can buy as much as needed, you don’t know people’s situations so nobody has the right to judge, just like doing that deal 2 times is fair, doing it 17 is fair also, you dont know why they needed 17 and chances are it was for a good reason, not just to steal deals from others.

        • Jennifer

          I disagree. It is RUDE to buy a large number of items so others don’t get them. 17 of something is excessive… I’m sorry, but it is. Its frustrating for those of us who only want 2 of an item to be inconvienced with getting a rain check at customer service. I know everyones situation is different but lets think of others as well. Most of these sale items will be on sale again in a few weeks.

          • Hsv mom

            It is not just that she bought all that was on the shelf knowing that there was someone else standing there that wanted a couple of them, but she also removed all the coupons off the larger not on sale bags and stuffed them in her purse. Whatever her situation, what she did was not right.

    • Michelle

      A week or two ago, someone posted a link to a 3.00 off PUBLIX store coupon for Huggies….. Does anyone still have that link handy or any other links for a STORE coupon that I can stack with my Manufacturer Coupon?


      • Publix puts out these coupons in their weekly ads a once or twice a month, but they are only good for the ad week. Is this what you are talking about?

    • Maria

      I have a question. I’m also new at this and I want to make sure I’m getting it right. On one of the examples on this page, you show that the Oscar Ronzoni Pasta is a B1G1 item for $1.39 so if you only buy one it’ll be .69 cents each. Then, if you use a coupon for -$1/2 it’ll be .19 cents. Do I need to buy 2 for the coupon to work? Or, will it only take .50 cents off the item if I get only one?

      • Jenny

        You will need to buy 2.

    • Brig

      I could not locate the halls coupon or the neosporin lip health in the 9/27 SS or the Bertolli Olive oil in 9/13 OR the fresh express salad in SS 10/4 _ _ are these typo errors or am i going crazy????

      • Regional variations always occur with coupons. You won’t always find what you are looking for because your area may not always get the coupon.

      • Tracie

        Since the inserts variations seem to be getting to be more and more every week, I have been using the trading website that Jenny has. I have only positive experiences since I started trading. I’m sure that someone has what you need and that you have some coupons you are willing to part with. Check it out:


    • Jenny,
      For the first time ever, I had a problem at my Publix store (Northeast Columbia, 2-notch rd). I had a coupon for $0.40 off Fiber one chewy bars (printable). When it rang up the cashier had to “block” the extra $0.40 off becasue it said do not double of triple at the top. Even though the bar cod number started with a 5 she said that last week they were told to start manually blocking the doubling.

      Jenny, have you seen this on your side of town?

      I’m a little worried now…..

      • kj

        I always use self checkout and it scans them and I manually put them in the machine, so this is never a problem for me.

      • Sofia

        They’ve blocked it from doubling at the Harbinson, Rosewood and 2 Notch store. I think it is a store policy now?? I’ve seen other writing about it happening in their area also.

      • Margie

        Oh please, please, please don’t let that happen at my Publix!

    • Jana

      The clorox coupon is actually in RP 10/4

    • Carol

      Yoplus yogurt was BOGO for $2.50 at the Publix in Athens, Georgia. This was an in-store special. With the $1 coupons from 9.13 and 10.4, these were only 25 cents for a four pack.

    • I keep trying to print the Hunts Tomatoes Coupon but the page comes up blank everytime. I’ve been trying throughout the day. Anyone else having this problem?

    • Amy

      I am devastated. I went to Target today and left my entire coupon box in the buggy. I’m sure no one will turn it in. I primarily shop at Publix for my groceries. I know that Publix takes competitor coupons, but do you know if they take Rite Aid/CVS/Walgreen coupons? I can’t believe I’ve done such a thing! I’m just devastated!!! Ugh!

      • LD

        SS this happen . I did this once about 8-10 years ago . And this is why I never bring my box in the store with me again lol. I take in what coupons I have for things on the list and leave my box out in the car . If there are things I cant live without [to good a deal] I will make the extra effort to go back and get them [good for your purse and your health lol] . Other wise I dont need it. When I had lost mine there was really not internet printables but there was a lot of boards to trade on very few eBay people and very few coupon cutter sites so prices were better but it taught me a lesson lol. I felt like I had lost my purse lol. I just cant bring myself to ever lose it again in a cart or theft one of the girls I used to trade with had someone steal it out of her cart when shopping [yep] maybe they thought it had more than coupons she used a planner binder thing .

      • MarySC

        I have my phone number written on the back of my coupon keeper and have twice in 15 years had someone call to say I left it!! There are honest people out there. Have you checked with customer service??

      • Stephanie

        Hey Amy! This is Stephanie Barber, fellow PNP from Children’s. I have you to thank for getting me on this website after you posted something about it on FB. I have saved SOOO much money already!

        I am not sure which Publix you shop at, but the one on Hwy 280 in Lee Branch takes Target, Walgreens and Rite Aid (as of last week). The cashier I always go to said that CANNOT take Food Lion or CVS. Sorry to hear about your coupon loss. If you want to start trading coupon inserts at work let me know!

    • Jen

      if you go to http://www.classico.com there is coupon for $1.00 off two jars of sauce.

    • Thanks for the embedded replies, Jenny. It makes it really easy to go through and see if somebody has already posted my questions, and easy to skip post I don’t need. Is it possible to create a jump to the comments link for the top of the page? Comments are a great place to look for extra deals!

    • Ginny

      Just wanted to share that the I used the “free Publix milk when you buy 3 kellogg’s products” today to get Publix Greenwise organic milk! With the help of some competitor’s Qs, I was able to get 4 boxes of frosted miniwheats and a gallon of organic whole milk for $2! I could have also gotten two shopping bags for free, but decided I didn’t really NEED any more!

      I asked at customer service if I could use it for organic milk and they asked around and finally decided that it doesn’t say that it excludes organic, so even though it is more expensive, it is still Publix milk!

      Too bad I could only find two boxes with the $5 packs of Qs inside.

    • Janey

      I noticed this in the couon section of the food list on a P&G item, “Qualifies for Free Kitchen Ware wyb $25 in P&G products find flyer in stores.”

      I couldn’t find the flyer. I asked at the counter and the manager was clueless.

      BUT, I signed up on the BiLo site tonight (have to go there to get an odd sized air filter, so figured I’d check out their deals while I’m there) and the BiLo site has this Kitchen Ware/P&G offer listed under “Deals” or “Specials”. It says something like “Free Pink Kitchen Ware”.

      So if you are interested and your Publix is P&G flyerless, you can get the same deal at BiLo. The $25 purchase has to be made by November 20 and in the same visit.

      • Cori

        I found the form near the wine section on a cardboard set up that had multiple Pink things for sale. There was a tearpad on it that had these coupons or forms.

        • Janey

          thanks! that’s a section i never go to. wouldn’t have thought to look in the wine section for free cookware :-) i’ll have to keep my eyes peeled from now on!

    • Bethany

      If you find a deal on chicken or ground chuck and bring in the ad, will Publix match the price per pound?

      • Angel in Charleston

        As far as I know, they will not. My store manager told me once they will accept competitor Qs as long as they for x amount off, and not a price match.

    • I found the P&G tearpad at the customer service desk.

      I am going to use it on my tide and dawn I bought at CVS 2 weeks ago (cvs was buy 25 get 10 ecb).
      THe rebate doesn’t specify which store the receipt has to be from.

      • Susan

        Has anyone in the Alpharetta or Cumming, Georgia area found the tearpad for the free kitchenware when you buy $25 in Proctor and Gamble stuff? I asked the manager at my store today, but she was clueless. I would appreciate any help. Thank you!

        • Susan

          Or would anyone be willing to share an extra one? Thank you!

    • jennifer

      Anyone know how much (size 4 preferred but interested in avg price, for the Huggies diapers at Publix? Trying to figure out if I should go there or do the pampers deal at BRU…. Thanks!

      • mel

        i bought a box of size 4 huggies tonight for 19.99 and used a competitor coupon of $5 off and a publix coupon of $3 off and a manufactor coupon of $3 off i paid $9 for a box of diapers. hope this helps.

        • jennifer

          thanks! any idea how many diapers in the box? 60-ish? i only have the $3 publix coupon and a $2 manufacturer…

    • Neal

      Can someone tell me if all the SS and RP circulars are the same? I swear I’m going crazy because I can’t seem to find some coupons that should be in there according to the info above.


      • lynn

        no not always they can vary by region that is why you are encouraged to get the largest sunday paper for your area

      • MarySC

        Check out the “Regional Coupons” (under the tab “deals by store”) for listings of actual coupons in different papers. There are a ton of variations!

        • Neal

          Thanks lynn, MarySC, and zombiemommy! I’ll take your suggestions and run with them. Loving coupons so far.

          Thanks so much,


    • Neal at couponmom.com there is a newspaper coupon database based by city/region. For my area, Atlanta, sometimes coupons don’t match the coupons above.. And sometimes we have coupons that others don’t….

    • PS hope you don’t mind Jenny that I mentioned that other site. I only use it for the database…

      No offense to her, but your deals are more accurate and easier to read…Perhaps because you only cover the south.

    • Jessica

      I have a coupon question. The coupon for Free Dixie plates WYB Kingsfor charcoal, can I also use a manufacturer’s coupon for $6 off pork WYB Kingsford charcoal + another item (from a list of specific options). Are the coupons both off the one bag of charcoal or is it ok because it is off the plates and the pork?

      Also, in the same sense, can you use a manu coupon for Dixie plates and the Publix free dixie plates WYB Kingsford charcoal?

      These are the hardest to figure out!

    • Phillis


      Found two deals today:

      Herbal Essence Shampoo and Conditioner is B1G1 (in store unadvertised) at Publix in Antioch TN $3.31 or $1.66 ea. Use 2 $1 off (9/13 RP)and 2 $50 (Live well feel beautiful P&G flyer) makes it $.31 plus tax for 2 bottles. Thanks my friend KP.

      Air Wick Freshmatic I Motion are $6 at Walmart. Use SS 09/13 $6 off coupon makes it free plus tax.

      And I thought this was going to be a boring coupon week…LOL

      • Jenny

        This will get better tomorrow, your Sunday paper will have a B1G1 Herbal Essences.

      • Mary

        Pink “be well” flyer exp. 10-11-09

    • Lori Davidson

      On the $25 deal, I thought that it had to be a qualifying store only. I could only find that Bilo, Publix, and Babies R Us had the forms. Anyone else have any insight?

    • Laura

      Jenny, I printed the page for the free publix bag when you buy 2 GM products. The cashier accused me of making photocopies and would not let me use it. Are these coupons Good?

      • DeeDee

        My Publix accepted it this week. I’m in south FL.

        • amy

          I’m in springhill tn..my publix accepted.

    • I got my new Publix Baby Club coupons and it had a $5 off coupon for Pampers Cruisers. I used that with a $2 off Target coupon for $7 off.
      Also, Walgreens had a coupon for $2 off Huggies wipes, which some Publix stores accept.

    • Is the Clorox site having technical difficulties for the B2G1 on the wipes? I have been trying to get in all week and it keeps making me login over and over, even though it has me logged in. I even tried to create a new identity to see if the problem was with the login and it kept telling me I had missed a field even though the form was complete. Is this their way of telling us the print limit is reached or is it a glitch?

      • It worked fine at home and and work for me (just checked now). I’m using Firefox. Maybe its a browser issue? Also, are you checking the “I accept the terms” box at the very bottom?

        • I’ve tried both IE and FF and have checked that I accept button – it keeps acting like I need to sign in!

    • Ann

      Have a question about publix coupon policy…you can stack coupons, but are the coupons in booklets found in their store (ie. One Stop, One Shop)publix coupons or manufactuer coupons? They state “redeemable only at publix stores.”

      • DeeDee

        I believe what I have read recently is that they are manufacturer coupons BUT can only be used at that store. Some simply have a store name printed on them and others say USE ONLY AT____. Store name on a manufacturer Q doesn’t mean you can only use it at that store.

    • Just a heads-up if you shop at the Smyrna, TN location try to avoid the cashier named Lucretia. I had a VERY unpleasant experience with her — I used 15 coupons (had 70 items) and she acted like I was the worst person in the world for having coupons and she even turned to another cashier to say “its another one”. I wasnt hoarding items ( the most I got of any one item was 6 and that was Hunts tomatoes so that is a perfectly normal purchase as I can use this in 1 to 2 weeks). I sent an email online at the Publix website —being pregnant, I was too tired to talk to the manager while at the store. I hate that some couponers give all others a bad rap, I am just trying to cut down on expenses for items that I use on a daily basis. I never intend to hoard, cheat the store or act in a greedy manner. The few that cheat the system make it hard for the rest of us to save money.

      • Mary


        That is the only way I found to get things straightened out… Go to the website and you will hear from someone soon.

        I became very well acquainted with my store manager and love my publix store after several “bad” incidents and several complaints.

        Please know that I also complimented on several occasions and that is what smoothed things over. If you are complimenting the store employees get recognized. It is amazing what compliments to the right people can do. Use the website and be sure to write the facts in both good and bad emails. I would say things will improve for you soon!!

    • Annette

      Where do you find Target coupons?

    • DeeDee

      I saved 74% at Publix this week!! Loving this whole idea of stacking coupons and matching them up with sales!!

    • Twana

      Had trouble with my Publix in M’boro, TN for the first time today. They started a new “policy” that if the coupon says DO NOT DOUBLE, they are to hit a button to keep it from doubling. I argued, gently, with the asst manager, and she finally said she’d let it go this time, and she’ll talk with the manager tomorrow and call me with their decision. I explained to her that the manufacturer does not give them double, that it’s a Publix perk for us. I also told her that they will loose lots of coupon business if this is what they decide to do. Argh…I might be stuck with going to a smaller Publix where they are always much nicer.

    • amy

      I bought the general mills fiber one cereal that is b1g1 this week. I used the publix $1 off orange juice coupons with purchase of general mills purchase.

      This weekend the Publix stores in Spartanburg said they were no longer accepting Target coupons. Has anyone else in the Greenville Spartanburg area had this problem.

    • Lisa

      Anyone know the the price of the Huggies diapers before coupons? I’m heading out later and trying to find the best deal on them!

    • Thanks so much for coming to Cleveland TN. Really enjoyed your seminar even with our enter-mission (tornado watch). Have never couponed before and am very excited to get started. Your site is so helpful. Will let you know how is goes.

      I was at the Ooltewah Publix today and saw that the Duncan Hines (I think or it may have been Betty Crocker) and Pillsbury Cake mixes were BOGO!! Does anyone know of any coupons for these??

    • Ashley

      I read on here that someone used a $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon at Publix. Does anyone know if we can use the $5 off $25 coupon from the CVS Flu quiz at Publix?

      • Susan

        It’s worth a try. I’ve used CVS coupons out of their little coupon book before and use $5 off $20 Rite Aid video values coupons all the time at Publix.

        My Publix in Conyers, GA accepts the $5 of $25 coupons from RiteAide and CVS. They won’t allow you to make multiple transactions, like breaking down your items into $25 increments. They allow me to use one of these coupons per day. I have a feeling this will be changing soon though. I had alot of trouble at Publix this week. The manager told me that alot of people are abusing their coupon policy. I see major changes in the near future :(

      i went to publix today, handed over my coupons and the cashier asked “do you use southernsavers.com?”

      of course i do. :)

    • I found Mama Mary’s pizza crusts and Abraham Sliced prosciutto on BOGO in store special! Anyone else seen these in your neck of the woods?

      Hi Jenny,

      Great Site!! I was wondering if you had a copy of the official publix coupon policy? I’ve been having trouble getting my publix to accept two coupons on a BOGO. I’m located in FL and I never had a problem until this week.

        They changed a lot of their coupon policies this week.

      General Mills has alot of products such as Yoplait yogurt, Green Giant, Pillsbury, Totino’s and many others. (Look on the back of the package and/or look on the bottom of the coupon as to where the Retailer needs to submit the coupon.) Just to let you know in case you wanted any free Publix bags with 2 General Mills Products!!!

      FYI…I just went to Publix, and was told corporate has changed their coupon policy. They no longer except Register Rewards from Walgreen’s, and if the coupon says only 1 coupon per purchase…you can only buy one item using that coupon.

      My Publix has the Cambell’s tomato soup 4 packs BOGO and I was wondering if I can use the .40/4 coupon on one of those. The coupon does not state that it has to be 4 separate cans.

        I’ve done this many times at Publix before, and it’s always worked.

      I’m confused. The Swanson 32 oz. broth is bogo for 2.59. Half of that is 1.30. So if you take .50 off one, doesn’t that make them .80 each? The list up top say .29 each.
      I’ve seen others like that and I wonder if I’m doing something wrong.

      • Susan

        The 50 cents off coupon doubles to $1.00–don’t forget–all coupons 50 cents and lower double–so that’s why the broth is so cheap.

        • Crystal

          Is that only in certain states? I live in FL…I’m pretty sure they don’t double at my Publix.

      I would like to know the price of a 16 oz “Publix Orange Blossom honey”
