Going Nuts? I can help you understand coupon terms and abbreviations

It’s time again for a new Publix ad!  This ad seems shorter than usual, but there are still many good deals.  I tried to go through this week and look through all the weekly variations to catch coupons that weren’t released in the south.  I’ve given you links to ebay for any that were regional that I found.

I know it’s frustrating for those that live in an area with really bad inserts,  for you guys remember — for most of the deals listed, this is the best price it will be whether you have the coupon or not.  If you need the item then get it and enjoy at least the savings from buying it at the right time!!

I pulled in all the great deals from the newest Green Advantage Buy flyer, I didn’t pull in the Yellow Advantage Buy flyer though.  It is ending this Friday, 12/4, so please look at the entire list and grab anything you need.



1. You do not have to buy 2 of the B1G1 items to get the sale price **
2. If you do buy 2 items that are B1G1 make sure you use 2 coupons to get the best deal
3. Publix accepts competitors coupons (you can stack with a manufacturers coupon and a Publix coupon)
4. You can use a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon on the same item
5. Most Publix locations double manufacturer coupons that are.50¢ or less **

** #1 and #5 do not apply in FL**

* – Each store sets it’s own policy on which competitor coupons it will accept.  Most stores DO NOT accept drugstore or Target coupons.  If yours does then smile, if yours doesn’t it really is okay.

    • Lisa

      Thanks for getting this up so early! I usually look forward to Wednesday mornings before work to begin thinking about my list…but…tonight is even better!! Thanks for all you do

    • Meredith

      what zip are you using to get Bob Evans sides?

      • Jenny

        sorry – that was the wrong link. I just put in the right link to the manufacturer site. No zip required :)

    • Jennifer

      How do I find info about the Nabisco Rebate? Am I missing something? I don’t get anything about a rebate when I click on the link.

      • Lisa

        Order the Nabisco calendar and the rebate is in the calendar along with $1/2 coupons for each month.

        • Jennifer

          Are you still able to order the calendar? Or was it only available at the beginning of the school year?

          • You can also get the rebate form in the “Keep the Jingle” coupon book. I got mine a few weeks back at Publix.

    • There was a coupon in a flyer this week for $10 off $50 ITunes card. The customer service girl told me it was for this coming week’s ad. Anyone see it?? I’m so confused. LOL

      • Lindsay

        It was on the back of the Publix flyer in the Sunday AJC also (not on the flyer from the store though). Mine said it expires 12/2, but maybe your store will honor it for the upcoming ad.

    • Bobbie

      The printable BeneVia Nutrition drink coupon was for $1.00 when I printed it just now.

      • Daryn

        New members get the $5 coupon. Existing members will receive a $1 coupon.

        • Jessica

          I have at least 2 Benevia coupons if anyone wants them for $5 off

      • meg

        I found these in the clearance section at my Publix in Canton, for $4.00 – only $1 after the Publix coupon! Great deal!

    • lydia

      Thanks so much for getting this up early, Your a life saver. :)

    • Susan

      BeneVia Printable Coupon for $5.00, I do not know what the print limit is, but I just printed 4 and the expiration is 12/31/2010.

      • Betsy

        Same thing happened for me!!!

      • Vanessa

        FYI: it is my understanding that you are not supposed to change the number of copies printed. that is still copying and jenny saids in her seminars that copying is a big no no. they can catch you…if anyone else has any other ideas on this i would be currious to get other oppinions.

      • Val

        I also was able to print several. There is the normal bar code number that starts with a 5 and then there is another number that is smaller but doesn’t look like it is a unique code. It printed on all the coupons the same. Did anyone else notice this? I wonder if everyone’s has the same number (like if the coupon was a pdf) or if this is supposed to be the unique code and should only use one?

        • Val

          Vanessa I just saw your comment after I posted mine. I never changed the quantity in the print box (never have and never will) and I don’t think the other people leaving comments had to either. After it printed 1, the site never redirected me it stayed on the page that said to print the coupon and that is how I was able to print another one. I am thinking it is a pdf or some file not like the coupons we get from coupons.com, smart source, or red plum. Not sure why the manufacture would set it up that way. Either way I don’t want to use more than one if the intention was only for one, but I do wonder why they would make it possible to print more than one. Most sites allow 2 anyway.

          • sara

            I did the same. Printed from the initial link a couple of times. Went in and registered my husband’s email just to see if the barcodes changed…they did not. So, I printed a couple from his “registration” as well.

      • lynn

        i also printed 4 they all scanned fine also the kim and scott pretzles are doing the same thing if any one has any insight to this please share all of the codes are the same and if you relog in in it doesnt change we are all getting the same code i had them check with management and they did verify they are good valid coupons…….

        • martha

          are you able to use 4 store coupons as well?

    • Mina

      The $10 Publix GC w/purchase of $100 AMEX GC is a SLIGHT savings that is good if you need to buy that type of GC. The cards do have an activation fee, though. That eats a good part of the benefit one would get if he were just buying it to save money by pre-paying on a card.

      • Rachel

        Plus those gift cards are terrible to use. Not only do you have to pay to buy them, most stores don’t know how to use them and the poor people you give them to are stuck with a useless gift and they expire.

        • Sloan

          my employber gave me a $100 AME gift card when I got married. I didnt have any trouble using it. I just scanned it like a regular credit card when checking out somewhere…

    • LD

      On the Nestle cocoa coupon, I am finding a 1 off 3 coupon . Is there another one I am missing ?

      I seperated by groceries and then when through the whole thing and still am not able to find it . That is a lot of coupons to go through just want to make sure I am not missing something as I need [lol] some cocoa for the season.

      • Tanya

        on the website it says $1/3 but when you print it is for $1/2.

    • Aymie

      I think the print limit has been reached with the $1.50 off Nestle coupon…

      The prints are out for the 1/2 Helmann’s and the 1/1 Bertolli frozen dinner.

    • If you have the Sunday inserts for the BC cookie dough, those coupons are not marked with “do not double” so they should bring the price to $.43 each.

    • kristin

      I thought I was the only one who left extra coupons I had on the shelf for those who come along but yesterday at Publix I saw coupons all over the store left by fellow couponers. Glad to see us all looking out for others if we have more than we can use!

      • Lori

        I LOVE this! I do it all the time. Even if I dont use the coupon, it is like a little note saying, “Im a couponer too!!”

        Publix, Dallas Hwy, Marietta GA

      • Vanessa

        I must say, I don’t do this because for the most part I use all of my coupons. (even on things we won’t use) We give most items like this to our church for families less fortunate, but it is a huge help to me when I find a great deal on diapers and some really amazing sweety has left her diaper coupons. You ladies or men are really helping a lot of people.

      • I understand when store personnel clean up and throw away the coupons that are left but it still makes me sad when I see it because I love leaving and finding the coupons too.

        • I love finding them too! My daughter and I say that the “Coupon Elf” has been there and left it just for us. I also frequently leave those “good” coupons that I won’t use or if I have extras- in the hopes that I will introduce couponing to someone who may not otherwise use a coupon. I have also been known to give them to someone who is unfamiliar with couponing and use the opportunity to tell them about southern savers.com. I challenge you to perform a random act of kindness today!!!

          • Shawn

            The Customer Service people at my Publix said they take all the coupons from several sunday papers and tape them to products. I see them all the time in my store. Also, this same Publix (Cedarcrest and 41 – Acworth, GA)still accepts Rite Aid coupons. This is the only one in the area who still does.

        • Renee

          My sister-in-law actually carries a roll of Scotch tape in her purse and tapes her extra coupons to the item; I’m sure the store personnel don’t throw those away. Just a thought.

        • Caroline

          I usually zig-zag through the store and notice that the coupons I’ve left for items I can’t use are missing by the time I’ve passed that isle again, and the stock guys are usually busy stocking the shelves when I’m there, not cleaning the isles of coupons. I like finding the coupons too. I think it makes the shopping experience fun for everyone. A few weeks ago an old woman was complaining to me about the price of cereal. I handed her my Food Lion coupon and the MF coupon, making whatever it was $0.25. It made my day, if it didn’t make hers.

      • Michelle in Martinez

        I have seen this occasionally, too. I don’t leave Qs because I donate any unused/expired Qs to the military–they are allowed to redeem them up to 6 months past the expiration date. However, I have been known to MOVE qs that Publix puts out. For example, I was in the laundry aisle, and for some odd reason they had put hanging Qs for charmin toilet paper on bottles of tide. So I took the Qs and went to the next aisle and put them on the toilet paper so that if someone wanted charmin, they would be able to get the coupon. I figured if I were going in for toilet paper and not detergent, I probably wouldn’t have seen the Q, so hopefully someone was able to save a little money by me moving them. ;)

    • Tanya

      There is also a Nestle cookie dough coupon in the Publix Family Time magazine insert. It’s a small booklet with cookie recipes and on the back it has a $1 coupon off the dough.

    • Did anyone notice if the Town House “Flip Side” crackers were included in the sale?

      • Jill

        They were included at my store in Summerville. I was very happy to see!

    • Kate

      I tried to use the $2.50 store q and the $1 manufacturer’s q for a $1.49 Revlon nail clipper last night and the cashier wouldn’t put it through, just took $1.49 off and gave me the manu q back. I mean, I’m not complaining, I mean, free nail clipper, but is that how it’s supposed to work? I bought other stuff too so I thought the overage would apply to my other groceries. Did I just have a grumpy cashier?

      • Our Publix stores here in Mauldin/Greenville, SC area will give you the overage for other groceries. I have even asked at our customer service desk and they said no problem. Since I have asked then I know how to coach the cashiers too even if they have to ask for a manager’s approval.

      • KK

        Almost all Publix coupons say not to exceed purchase price at the bottom. Therefore he/she was doing their job.

      • meg

        I bought the emery boards for $1.89 – used the $2.50 Publix coupon and the $1 Revlon coupon, my cashier didn’t say anything, but it was part of a larger order.

        • sara

          I have not seen any “do not exceed” messages on the Green Advantage coupons. I looked after I saw your post.

      • Sheila

        I went to my Publix last night and the Manager happened to come up to bag my groceries :( She was eyeballing my coupons as the cashier was putting them through. The manager told the cashier to change the store Q for the nail clippers to only take off the actual price. But – they didn’t say anything about the manu Q? Maybe they didn’t see it… I don’t know, and I surly didn’t ask! The only reason I got the nail clippers was to get the extra cents off of my total grocery bill… If i would have known they were going to adjust the Q, I would have probably gotten one of the more expensive tools.

        Oh – but I did do this same thing last week and got the the full store Q and manu Q taken off. I guess it just depends on the cashier and if the manager is watching or not.

    • Kevin

      Just tried to print some Dove coupons. Link says that there are no coupons available for this campaign. Oh well!!

    • Vanessa

      My publix has Infusium shampoo on sale for $4.99. Using available coupons makes this $0.50 each.

    • Shannon in ATL

      The in ad coupon for Powerade Buy 10 get 5 free can I also use a manuf. coupon for Buy 10 get 5 free? Hoping to Buy 10 use both coupons and get 10 free.

      • sara

        Where did you get the manuf coupon?

        • Shannon in ATL

          They were hanging coupons on the Powerade that I purchased a couple of months ago at Publix.

          • sara

            Way to hang on to them!! Awesome!

      • Amanda

        I am so jealous of your manufacture coupon! haha

      • Shannon in ATL

        It is a Publix coupon in the ad so Buy 10 get 10 free……yea…just in time for basketball season!

        • sara

          I saw the in ad coupon but you mentioned a manuf coupon for the same. Where did you find that one?

      • Nikki

        It is buy 10 get 5 free (meaning you buy 15 and only pay for 10). I work at Publix. With the man. coupon you get 15 but only pay for 5.

    • sara

      Green Advantage Coupon Question:

      The Publix coupon for $3 off BeneVia says “Limit one deal per coupon per person”. Can I use more than one coupon if I am buying more than one of the item?

      • sara

        Where did you find the manuf coupon?

        • Lana

          My store will only take one store coupon per person per day. Sometimes hubby goes and checks out with his own cart full. Or you could shop multiple times in one week.

          • sara

            I may make a couple of trips just to be on the safe side. Has anyone tried this product (BeneVia drinks) before? Any good?

            • amy

              I bought some Benevia when rite aid gave the rebate but I have not tried it yet…going to get some more tonight! Its just a protein health dring BUT ITS FREE! Yea!

            • Amanda

              I have tried them when rite aid had them on sale, I got the pineapple kind, those were really good. I am excited to get some for free with overage :)

      • sara

        Thanks for the flavor opinion. I bought two packs today on 2 different trips. I am hoping since they are on sale that my Publix will get more in stock tomorrow. They were also out of the Nivea body wash this afternoon (I did get 4 of them this morning though). I usually see them stocking shelves on Friday, so I will try again. Either the Manager or Asst Manager was bagging my groceries this afternoon and asked where I get all my coupons. I said on the internet and he asked if I had heard of Southern Savers!! I said of course! He said he hears alot about this website and that people are saving tons. He asked how much I saved today. I said $50 this trip and only paid $4!! I told him how nice his store was when it comes to coupons!

        • pharmSCgirl

          Just curious as to what store you were shopping at.

          • sara

            The one at Valleydale and Hwy 31 in Pelham. But, I did have a “bad” cashier this weekend there. She went and asked the Head Manager I guess, if they take the Rite Aid 5 off 25 coupons. He said only if I am getting stuff from the pharmacy area. Boooooo…anyway, she began sorting my coupons out and checking my already bagged groceries to check that the quantities of each item matched up with how many coupons i had for that item…it was ridiculous!! I WILL AVOID HER FROM NOW ON…example: I had 1 coupon for 1.50off the cookie dough. Bought 3 (2 of which had peelies for $1 off). So total of 3 coupons and 3 packages of cookie dough. She asked if i wanted to use the printable coupon or the peelies….I said ALL THREE since i bought 3 cookie doughs…I guess I just don’t get why she even cares. It seemed personal to her that I was using coupons. And it was a 10 (if that much) item trip. UNBELIEVABLE sometimes.

            • sara

              At least now I can grab a $1 item from the “pharmacy area” and be able to argue about them accepting it…

    • Heather

      Does anyone know what zip I can use for the vlasic Q? Thanks!

      • Jenny

        Try 90210 or 30003

        • robyn

          I tried both zip codes and neither worked.

      • Try 33811

        • Susie

          I have tried the 3 zip codes that ya’ll listed plus mine and a friends zip. I still have not found the pickle coupon. I have come to the conclusion that it is my computer because the friends zip that I used had no problem getting the coupon.

          • lydia

            its on this zip for me 30701 hope it works for you,

          • Sherry

            Try 32009, 32011 or 32068

    • The Purex and Northern sites say the campaign is over. Is anyone getting these coupons? It will give a 3 in 1 coupon, which I can’t use.

      • Jenny

        I still see the Quilted Northern under the household tab on Target’s site. Were you getting a different site?

        • It was directing me to Bricks coupons. Unfortunately, I’ve tried several times with different sites (sav a lot, target, lysol) using e-centives and it downloads perfectly, but I get an error message saying I’m trying to print to a device that doesn’t print coupons. I’ve emailed them, do everything they tell me to, but to no avail. Do you have any ideas what else I can do to get their coupons? I can print all others, just not e-centives.

    • Andrea

      How are there 11/29 inserts? I thought there were no inserts for 11/29? Looking for pampers coups

      • D

        We had a P&G insert in our papers which had the pampers Q…I live in south Florida.

        • Andrea

          wow! I thought there weren’t any inserts! That really stinks! Thanks for letting me know though!

          • marina

            the AJC didn’t have any coupon inserts. Maybe other regions did

            • We got our P&G in the Thanksgiving paper from the AJC.

            • Caroline

              Did you see all the coupons in the Thursday free paper from the AJC? I’m thinking to bug the neighbors for theirs.

      • Lisa

        Mine has two coupons. $1.50 off diapers, $2.00 off Swaddlers, Cruisers or Extra Protection diapers.

      • Lisa

        Got Target Q’s in the mail today that has $2 off Pampers. Makes a great deal when combined with the store Q and one from P&G!!

    • Jennifer

      I checked my publix ad and the store and it doesn’t have the Hot Wheels Cars 99¢ =( so don’t go looking for it in the Irmo area.

      • Andrea

        I’ve seen those hot wheels near the checkout.

      • marie

        My publix in NE Columbia didn’t have them for 99 cents either. They did a price check on one for me and it rang up regular price.

        • Colleen

          Not on sale at mine either (mid-TN)

      • Ours are always 10 for $10…my little boy is always trying to get me to buy them for him, and this week with the coupon, it looks like he will get one!

      • marina

        Our store has different types and they are different prices too. The regular ones rang up as $1 even though they were marked at 2/$5 and the other ones were ringing up at full price.

      • Melissa

        Hot Wheels: Our Publix doesn’t have Hot Wheels, but we took the coupon to Kroger and they ALWAYS have them 10 for $10, so we were able to get 6 for free!

        • Tracie

          The Hot Wheels coupon is a Publix store coupon, your Kroger takes competitor coupons?

      • Mel

        I have looked at the Publix @ Harbison and Lex. and I can not find the Hot Wheels, not even the regular ones. Has anyone seen them in either place and I am just missing them? I remember seeing them in a big bin awhile ago and now I just can’t find them.

        • The Hot Wheels at my store were in the craziest place – Side-cap on the bread aisle next to the produce! Crazy!

    • Priscilla

      I was wondering if anyone else notices their Publix has prices different than what’s listed here?
      I just returned from the Trenholm Plaza Publix. The bags of Uncle Ben’s Rice were BOGO at $6.99 ea (vs. $5.99 ea). The Nestle cookie dough was BOGO at $3.19 ea (vs. $2.89 ea). And Coke products were buy 2, get 1 at a price of $1.71 each instead of $1.59 each.
      I’m certainly not complaining and never go shopping w/out my Southern Saver’s list, but I was curious about the discrepancies. Do other local Publix stores have different prices?

      • Jenny

        Every store varies :( If you go to a Publix five miles down the road their prices will differ from the one you were just in. If you look around every time you’ll notice one is routinely higher than another on most items so then you know which store to shy away from. (For me that is Harbison – routinely almost 50 cents more than another store 5 minutes from there!)

        • Priscilla

          Thanks! I had no idea. It seems like it would be such a nuisance to print a different ad for each store. Thanks too, for all you do!

          • Rita

            thanks for this post
            I shop at Trenholm Plaza also and noticed the price difference — thought it might be a regional thing and didn’t realize our local Publix might have different prices. Does anyone shop at the Rosewood location and know how the prices there compare?????

            • Jenna

              Nestle cookies were $3.19 at Rosewood Publix too. I’ve noticed that prices at Rosewood are always higher than those Jenny posts. And Gervais and Rosewood are usually the same–I’d imagine they both have the same prices as Trenholm.

        • KK

          If your Publix is next to another store, they get special pricing for competitive reasons. My store was literally across the street from a walmart neighborhood market and we were up to $1.50 cheaper than other area Publix’s

      • Krista

        My store also has the cookies for a different price. They are BOGO @ $3.39 instead of the $2.89. They ring up for $1.70 & $1.69, so it is still a really good deal with the coupons.

    • Wendy Inocente

      Just an FYI…when I clicked on the printable coupon site for the Nestle Hot Cocoa coupon from the Publix list, the coupon it took me to was $1/3 rather than off 2, but this is still a great deal. Thanks for all you do!

    • Joy

      Can’t find the Vlasic pickle coupon. What zip code should I use?

      • AmyN

        I printed it last month. They may not have reloaded it with this months Qs.

    • Does anyone have problems with printing coupons from sites that use e-centives?

    • Jenny – which store has the Christmas tree tear pad for the Heineken Rebate offer? I have looked in many stores in Columbia but am just not finding it. Thanks for all you do.

      • D

        I was looking for the same as well… I called the store in Easley and they said they do not know of any rebate for the Heineken.

        • morgan

          The Easley store is AWFUL for coupons and tearpads. Not due to the employees, but the customers. They put them up, and within an hour, they are all gone. It’s too bad some people have to be so greedy.

          • I agree with you Morgan. I saw a woman in there the other day pulling 10 or 15 off of a tearpad. I almost said something to her. TAke two and leave some for the rest of us.

    • noelle

      FYI–the Publix on Pelham in Greenville SC has a new raincheck policy–they expire in 30 days; also, they’re cracking down on the 2-deals-only policy for the rainchecks. Not that big of a deal, but it’s good to know for planning purposes.

      I’ve noticed they’ve been well stocked lately–haven’t had to get as many rainchecks.

    • Jill

      The Central store in Publix will now take the Harvey’s coupons. Don’t know why they changed but they were discussing it as I checked out so I asked. Also the “new” policy is for the checkers to use their discretion when accepting coupons….don’t know what that will entail.

      • Jill

        In Summerville…oops

        • I can’t get the Harvey’s coupons either! They won’t print. Help!

      • LD

        To me that would mean pick my cashier wisely and be really nice LOL { there is a couple I avoid. even if it means a much longer wait}.

    • Pat

      There is also a Food Lion coupon for the Oscar Mayer bacon!!

    • Marlene

      I wanted to know if you could use the coupon on the matchbox cars because the coupon says not to exceed purchase price does that mean it has to be more than the dollar?

      • Jenny

        The coupon will go through without any issues (a store manager shared this deal with me actually :) )

        • Marlene

          Thanks Jenny that makes it a great deal for my boys!!!!

    • Tonya

      I have a question but wasn’t sure where to post it. Does anyone have a Winn Dixie that they shop at? I’m wondering if they accept 2 q’s on items that are bogo like Publix does. I drive a piece to go to Publix & Winn Dixie actually has a few things bogo that I would be interested in. Thanks in advance!

      • jennifer

        hi tonya…i have had no problems using 2 coupons for bogo’s at winn dixie…i live just south of jacksonville, fl…their ad this week looks amazing! i will definitely be making a stop through winn dixie this week (and i usually do not!)…hope this helps!

      • sara

        Does Winn Dixie double coupons?

        • DeeDee

          Not in FLorida.

          • Bethany

            I live in B’ham, AL and it says on the front of the add that they double.

            • sara

              I am in Pelham…I checked the ad online and saw the teeny tiny print that they are doubling this week! Thanks.

    • I figured out my printing problems with e-centives coupons

      • Amy B.

        Care to share how you fixed it?

        • I have an Epson multi-function and when I went to target.com it had a message to the left that my printer was not allowed. So I hooked up my husband’s regular printer and waa lah, e-centives! I guess I’m not as computer literate as I thought!

    • mel

      my publix on trolley rd. i alwayssss leave coupons!! love when i find em!

    • Lauren McCall

      I’m trying to help my sister get started couponing in Iowa. Anybody know of any sites like this one for publix in iowa???

      • Traci M.


        There are no Publix Supermarkets in Iowa.

      • Rebecca

        They probably have a Kroger Company store (like Dillons) in Iowa. They usually run pretty much the same deals, just different dates. Our ad here in Atlanta will start on Sunday, but my sister’s deals in Kansas at Dillons start on Tuesday, so she gets a bit of a preview on stuff!

      • Lindsay


        I’m originally from Iowa. It will depend on where she lives, most of the smaller towns don’t have the big chain grocery stores. I think HyVee and Fareway are both across the state.

        If you go to http://www.becentsable.net you can look up grocery stores in other states and they link to websites (like this one) that will do sales match-ups. That’s how I look for stores when planning vacations! HTH.

    • FYI… Wise Snacks has a coupon. You sign up for their website and it is .75/2 bags of Wise Snacks 6.75 oz or larger.

      • Michelle

        Thanks for letting us know!

    • Bonnie

      There is a $3 off coupon for Revlon Beauty Tool in the Walgreen December coupon book. There is also a $1 off coupon for Revlon Implements.

      • Lisa

        The $3 coupon is for a set of beauty tools. You have to buy the complete set to use the coupon. I found that out today!

        • Sloan

          I have a Walgreens health saving booklet that has a $1 off coupon for Revlon implements, and it doesnt show the sets. Unfortunately, I havent found a Publix in the Greenville area that will take wags coupons.

    • Michelle

      Athens, AL shoppers – I was informed today that Food Lion coupons are no longer accepted. I figured this was coming as their coupon policy gets more and more strict every time I go in there. Here is a list of the policies I have personally been told about:

      1. No more Harvey Coupons (this was a few months ago).
      2. Only one $$ off (i.e. Rite $5 off $25) coupon per day. You used to be able to divide up your purchases and use more than one.
      3. On a B1G1 coupon you cannot use any other coupon in conjunction (you can’t use a coupon for the one that isn’t free).
      4. No more stacking a store, competitor and a manufacturer. They used to do all three but now they consider and store and competitor coupons the same in this scenario. So it is either a store + manu or a competitor + manu.
      5. No more FL coupons

      I hope this is it on their restrictions….it could always be worse!

      • Bethany

        Where do you get the Rite Aid $5 off $25 coupon? I don’t see it in the ad. Do you have to get it in the store?

        • Sara

          It’s on one of the 3 main coupon sites…i think coupons.com

      • Lara

        Michelle, I was wondering when the Food Lion coupon’s days were over here in Athens. And I had never attempted a Harvey’s coupon before, as I had never even heard of them before. (so no loss there for me). The thing I don’t like reading is about the BOGO coupon thing. That stinks! But they have always been so nice at the store. I think the managers are great. Still a great place to shop, I think!

    • At Publix, do you have to buy all of a 5/$5.00 item– For example, on the Rotel Tomatoes– Do I have to Buy 5 to get the sale price?

      • Jenny

        You do not. They will each ring up $1.

    • Stephanie

      Has anyone found the pickle coupon? My 14 yr old uses pickles on his sandwich for lunch every day! We use a lot of pickles – could use the help to find the Q! Thanks

      • sara

        The giant jars of pickles are included in the sale at my Publix! I thought it would be the small size, but the 46oz was part of the sale.

    • Heather

      The BeneVia is $8.99 at my store, not $6.99. Still a good deal if you like the juices. So, not free and no overage in Canton, GA. :(

      • meg

        the Sixes Road store has them on clearance for $4 or $4.20 –

    • JMR

      I got a home mailer late last week from Target with a $1 off 2 Pilsbury baking mixes or frostings and a $.50 off Betty Crocker Cookie mixes–which are both on BOGO this week.

    • shirleywilliams

      Tonya, I shop at Winn Dixie and I give them 2 q’s for the bogo with no problems. You are still buying both items, one is a store sale and the other is a man. q.

      • Tonya

        Thanks! I will go try. Their Fast Fixin chicken is bogo.

        • Bethany

          Do y’all know of a site like this one that shows Winn Dixie deals?

    • Holly

      There was a while back and I bet print limits are reached on the farmlike mozzarella sticks and such for $2 or $2.50 (don’t have it with me right now) but its expiration date was for 2/28/2010 if any of you still have it. Would make them $1.84

      • Janet

        This was a $2 off any Farm Rich product coupon from the Farm Rich Fun Club. I got it in my email recently, must have joined up on the website. Thanks for reminding me! This will be a sweet deal.

    • Denise.

      Has anyone else had a problem with the nestle cookie dough site. The link sends you to a site then you click on sign up or sign in but it takes you to a page that says ‘parsing’?? and says it doesn’t exist? What’s up? Any suggestions?

      • sara

        I tried at work. From one computer it sent me to regular Nestle site where i could only find the $1 off coupon. Used a different computer and it sent me to the Nestle site that had a Holiday village theme page where you click on the coupon sign near the bottom and sign up and then you can print the $1.50 off coupon. Very strange that one computer at my desk took me to a completely different site than another computer at my same desk!

      I went to Publix today and had my first bad experience ever and I have been shopping there for a while now. I tried using a manufacture coupon printed from Targets website and the lady told me I could not use it because Target is not a competitor. I told her I know that but that is not a store coupon it is a manufacture coupon. She just keep saying yes I see that, they are not a competitor. So frustrating. I am pretty sure that they will get reimbursed for that. If they were going to lose money I totally understand. Its just that the lady wouldn’t even listen to what I had to say. I will call cooperate tomorrow and ask about it. I know my coupon rules pretty well so this just irritates me that they act like I am a criminal. Has anyone else used one of those coupons here yet?

      • ashley

        I haven’t used one of those coupons yet, but I know what you mean. I am a couple months new to couponing, and all the cashiers and managers act so suspicious when I use coupons. Coupon usage went up 20% in the beginning of 2009, and I swear, something is going on. Coupon limitations are probably going to hit big time. I had no idea what a hard time it can be just using darn coupons.

      • Stephanie

        I called to speak to someone at cooperate and they were absolutely no help. She said the same thing as the lady in the store…

        We do not consider Target as a competitor.

        Duh I know that! That applys to your store coupons THAT YOU DON’T GET REIMBURSED FOR!

        I get it I totally do and I am okay with that. What I don’t understand is why wont you take a coupon that you WILL get reimbursed for??

        So now I have to wait to hear from the general manager at my store and of course she will know NOTHING!

        I am about to be done with Publix.

        • Lisa

          Maybe Publix doesn’t get reimbursed for a manuf. coupon that has a Target logo. Maybe the manuf. only reimburses Target logo coupons submitted by Target. It’s a shame you are thinking of quiting Publix over a dollar coupon. And upsetting the Publix staff which will affect the rest of us couponers.

          • Stephanie

            No they do get reimbursed because it says on there to the retailer mail coupon here to get reimbursed.

        • aimee

          Went to the Five Forks Publix in Greenville, Sc tonight and they too would not allow me to use the target coupons even with the manuf. explanation. They said it was a new policy. Please let me know if that is correct b/c if so I won’t print anymore. Thanks

    • qponing09

      Has anyone seen the Starbucks Frappuccino coupons Jenny mentions (in this post) in the stores in the Summerville/Charleston area? I checked the Trolley Rd. store today with no luck. The Publix ad states buy 2 4pks get 1 free coupons in stores. I thought this would apply to all, but I guess not. I love these things and the coupons would make them an even better deal. Thanks so much for any assistance. Jenny, thanks for all you do. You’re a blessing!

      • misa

        I have seen this coupon today in Goose Creek Publix

    • michelle

      tried the revlon tool coupon with nail clippers and she would only take the 1.00 coupon. She said could not go over the amount of the item.

      • kj

        That’s why I always use the self checkout. You scan your own coupons and the computer takes them no problem :)

      • Stephanie

        I never feel right when I make money off a coupon so I bought two nail clippers and used both coupons. I still got them for free and a little over but not as much as I would have got.

    • Joy

      SouthernSavers is in a contest for the Best loved website. See the “love this site??” link Jenny has posted on the right side of this page and please everyone vote!!! It just takes a minute to sign up to vote. Jenny deserves to win this!!!

    • Renie

      There is a “parser” error when I click on the link to go to the $1.50 off Nestle cookie dough. What is a parser error?

      • cennaka

        A parser error means there is incorrect syntax and/or structure. I think they may be updating their site and the link is now pointing to something that has been moved. Nothing you can do until they fix it.

      Have all Publix switched to rain checks that expire in 30 days? I had to throw some away because I hadn’t noticed the new “fine print.”

      • Krischa Pilcher

        I’m pretty sure all Publix have changed to the expiration in 30 days but my Publix Managers have said that as long as it isn’t a “really crazy raincheck” then they will still accept it after it has expired. Example: I used a raincheck last week for BOGO on Pepperidge Farm Cinnamon Bread($3.99 for 2) that had expired in August. They took it no problem- I had asked the manager about it and he said it was ok, so when I checked out I let the cashier know that the manager had said it was ok. So I would just ask if they will still honor expired ones before you throw them away! BTW, I live in Georgia.

    • sara

      Made a quick trip into Publix this morning. Pelham, AL store. There were a couple of items that were not on sale:

      Muir Glen tomato paste: $1.09 but w/coupon still only .09 a can!

      Infusium Hair Care: $5.99 but w/B1G1 store coupon plus $2 off manuf coupon still makes it $2 per bottle. I could have used another manuf coupon but I am saving it for a 2nd Publix run this week. :)

      So, with tax I spent 5.13 for the following:

      (4) Nivea body wash
      (1) Infusium 23 shampoo
      (1) Infusium 23 conditioner
      (1) Revlon tweezer
      (2) Muir tomato paste
      (1) Vlasic pickles
      (1) BeneVia 4 pack juice

    • Christine

      I picked up several of the bogo kim and scott’s pretzels this morning and we had a little taste test – this was our opinions

      The cream cheese filled – NOT good at all! The filling did not taste like cream cheese, but more like play-dough.

      The egg filled – not bad – not fantastic, but not bad and I would eat one occasionally for breakfast.

      The grilled cheese: YUM YUM YUM!!!! Cheesy goodness even in the microwave.

      Just one person’s opinion, but thought I would share it.

      • LD

        Thanks , I have been wondering about this .

      • lynn

        i agree we did the same taste test the cream cheese was horrid could not eat it and sis not tast like cream cheese n egg one was okmk my kids like them the cheese was good

      • Dawn

        The cheese filled ones are a HUGE hit in our house, my son likes them in his school lunch. The cinnamon filled ones are also really, really good. I’m so excited about this sale and coupon match-ups. We haven’t bought any since they were BOGO last summer (I wasn’t couponing back then but still wouldn’t pay $5 a box), and my son has been wanting them!

        • Christine

          How do you prepare them to put them in his lunch? Good idea!

    • Billy

      I live in Huntsville, and in Tuesday’s mail were four $5 off of $40 coupons for Southern Family Markets, one each for the next four weeks. Plus, each week are 2 free items. My Publix honors these coupons, so be on the lookout.

      • Michelle

        Hi…I am in Athens and was just wondering which Publix you go to and which other competitor coupons they might accept (for instance, the Rite Aid coupon). Thanks!

        • Billy

          We mostly shop at the Hampton Cove Publix. I know they accept Target, Southern Family Markets and Sav-a-Lot, but do not accept Rite Aid, CVS or Walgreen (because this particular Publix does not have a Pharmacy and are not considered competitors).

        • Amy G

          My aunt lives out there and she drives the to th Athens Publix its the only one around that takes the most compitor coupons. someone posted ealier some changes.. so look up in the comments.. to see.

    • Lisa

      Has anybody tried to buy the Nestle Cookie dough yet? Are the Ultimate Filled part of the BOGO?

      • sara

        Going for those this afternoon. My ad says Ultimates are included but it’s best to look for the sale tags as well. As I found out this morning, a couple of the items on the list above are not on sale at my Publix. I was hoping they just didn’t have the signage out yet, but checked the ad when i got back in the car, and they were not listed.

        • Patricia

          In B’ham the Ultimates are included in BOGO…and they’re delicious!!

      • meg

        We’ve bought about 20 over the last couple of months, hard to pass up for free or .25-.50….all delicious, all gone the next day with three kids!

    • meg

      Just got a nice mailer from Publix with two $5 off $50 coupons!

      • Michelle

        How did you sign up for the mailer?

        • meg

          no clue at all…but I am on their magazine mailing lists – so maybe from that?

    • Melissa Y

      I noticed the Sirloin Tip Roast on sale for $2.99 a pound, this is a pretty lean cut of meat. You can ask them at the meat counter to turn it into ground for you. $2.99 a pound is a good price for ground sirloin. Hope this tip helps someone.

    • Lisa

      I’m going to buy 5 items but have 8 coupons. Is this going to cause a problem when I’m checking out?? If so how do I get around it?

      • kj

        This happened to me yesterday and it beeped on the first one over the number of items I had, but the cashier was able to push it through.

        • pharmSCgirl

          publix only allows one coupon per item so i usually buy some vitamin waters to get around that b/c I would buy them at wal-mart anyway. Just get 3 filler items that you need.

      • Krista

        I am a cashier at Publix. As long as the coupons you have are for the items that you have then you will be fine. The cashier will have to get a manager overide or someone from customer service to do it, but it is not that big of a deal.

    • trisha

      my store did not have it on sale it was reg price 5.99 but I did notice the softsoap body wash on sale and also fyi the softsoft handsoaft on sale again for .79 free with .40 Q doubled. but anyway I went to the store with Q’s in hand ready to grab 3 bottles to make gift baskets with and wham….. NO SALE BUT FULL PRICE. I didnt check with the cashier just in case it wasnt posted but could someone PLEASE PLEASE TELL ME if they have been able to work this deal or if it really is on sale and not posted. NOTE: the ad didnt mention it on sale but in Jenny’s list she mentions it as a sale item or is this one of those regional sales and not here in Georgia

      thanks going to bed will check back tomorrow just in case its on sale and i can get there by the weekend to grab my 3 hopefully

      • Wendy

        It was on sale for $3.00 in my store in Florida.

      • sara

        It is listed in the Green Advantage Buy for December. Nivea is advertised as 2 for $6 in it. Pelham, AL has it on sale.

        • Caroline

          At my store in Atlanta, they even posted the Green Advantage Buy over the price tags.

    • Stephen K

      Where do you guys find the Bob Evans hashbrowns and/or seasoned fries? I looked at two different stores and found nothing…not even the little B1G1 shelf tag.

      • Monique

        They’re found by the breakfast items (bacon & sausage) usually on the top shelf. They are refrigerated not frozen and they usually don’t have many. Good luck!

      • Dana

        mine were in the refridgerator section near the Country Crock potatoes and other heat and serve items like the Hormel Pot Roast etc.

    • Caroline

      Green Giant Vegetables

      So, in one of the newspapers I got a coupon for $0.40/2 Green Giant Specialty Corn. The Green Giant Nibblets were B1G1, and I was able to use those. If there’s any question, the label is the same in the picture as the nibblets.

Since I have started my girls look in the cabinets and just stand there wondering what to get (never happened before)—-You have made grocery shopping such a great experience due to all the savings I get out of it. Other sites are in no comparison to this one.

      Thanks Again —-

    • Susan

      Just wanted to share a great deal I got yesterday. I use the Nestle Good Start formula.
      1 lg. can of formula $22.49
      1 box of Huggies wipes $2.99
      $5 off Good Start formula Publix in ad coupon
      $3 off Good Start formula Food Lion coupon
      $2 off Huggies diaper product
      $5 off $25 purchase
      Total spent: 10.71 !!!
      ***You could make this even lower (possibly even FREE with overage if you have any of the $12 ones left!) if you have any Good Start manufacturer checks*** Unfortunatly I have exhausted all of the ones I had available to me. :(

      Special thanks to Jenny! Without all of her free advice and help to all of us, I wouldn’t have been able to figure out how to get formula and diapers so cheap!! :)

    • Yumi

      I live in Dacula GA, has anyone been able to stack coupons at Publix in this area? I tried to stack some coupons and they wouldn’t take it.

      • the publix at the intersection of fence road and auburn will allow stacking – they will take rite aid, food lion, babies r us, walgreens rr

    • Heather

      Just went to the Ooltewah, TN Publix and they do not have the yoplait gogurt B1G1. :( Just wanted to let anyone in the area know.

    • Navanita


      Could someone please let me know what the deal is with the Heineken Beer, 12 pk can or bottle, $11.99
      $25 mail in rebate wyb (2) Heineken 12 pks and a Christmas Tree tearpad in stores

      I went to my Publix here in Greenville, SC and the store manager (who was very sweet and helpful, in fact the whole staff was!) was patient enough to take time and find out about the offer. However, she came back and informed me that they have not heard anything like this and that I should re-check with Heineken?

      Any info on this much appreciated!

      Thank you!

      And this site is a boon for everyone! Kudos to Jenny!

      • Jenny

        This is a rebate tear pad that the heineken delivery guys have and can put around in various stores. I heard about from Heineken directly though I don’t know what stores have them. Maybe we need to hunt down a truck??

        • Jenna

          Navanita and Jenny,
          I went to Publix last night and the Heineken guy was there! He gave me a little stack of the rebate so I have 8 that I can give away to anyone who needs them! You can email me at babygirlruca@yahoo.com and I can mail it to you : ) If more people need them Ill see if I can’t find some more around here to send to you.

          • Navanita

            Thank you Jenny and Jenna.
            Jenna, I will take you up on that offer. Hope you do have one rebate for me. :)

    • Phillis

      I saw the tear pad for this at a Food Lion a while back. Try there.

      • Navanita

        Thanks Phillis. Maybe I will try looking it at the nearby Bloom.

    • Beth

      Has anyone had a problem with using a manufacturer coupon and a manufacturer check for formula at Publix. The cashier wouldn’t let me do it and even the manager said no. I’ve done it before and noticed Jenny still thinks it’s ok in her deals. Anyone else have this problem or did I pick a bad day at Publix?

    • D

      anyone know what a christmas tree tear pad is? LOL… I have no idea!!

      • Jenna

        Look at my comment that is like 4 comments up. If you need one just email me and I will mail you one. : )

    • Donna

      When I go to the printable coupons, it tells me that I have already printed that coupon, but I haven’t. Why is this happening?

    • I went to Publix today the Nivea Body Wash was $3.89 and the Infusion was $5.99 so not as great a deal as listed. I wonder if all Publix pricing varies…………

      • Jenny

        Ask your publix to do a price check on the Nivea, it is in the green advantage buy flyer for $3 ea and that is at all Publix stores. The infusium is not really on sale this week it was just a good deal with coupons.

        All stores do vary in price though even stores 5 miles apart :(

      • laura from TN

        The women’s body wash is $3. It’s the men’s that is $3.89.

    • DD

      anyone know if there are manf coupons for sundown vitamins somewhere? I would love to combine with the $6.00 off 2 sundown products coupon from Publix thanks

      • Angel in Charleston

        Yes, there are Sundown Q’s out there. Can’t say where, but I used some last week. The Publix store on Trolley Road in Summerville had a blinkie Sundown Q, and somewhere today I saw a printable Sundown Q. Wish I could tell you where to find them… I just know they are out there somewhere. Good luck!

      • Michelle

        http://www.coupontom.com says there was one in the 11/15 Red Plum.

        I don’t know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but I have used them before at Publix.

        • DeeDee

          I printed a $3/2 Sundown Q and used it today on Vitamin D, plus the $6 store Q PLUS $1 peelies on each.

    • Bobbie

      Has anyone tried the American Express Gift cards yet? Was thinking about getting some for Christmas gifts if there is not a limit, but don’t won’t to fool with it if there’s an activitation fee. I did ask the mgr at Wags and she told me they were no problem to use at Wags. May try one for myself to see how it works.

      • Jen S

        AMEX gift cards have an activation fee. I haven’t bought any since last Christmas, but I remember it being around $3/$4 per gift card.

        • Bobbie

          Thanks for the info.

      • stellalunay2k

        I was chargeda $5.95 activation fee, which means you make $4.05 on the deal.

    • Kelly

      I love your website. Thanks for making it so easy for us!

    • Julie

      Hi, does anyone know if the DiGiorno pizza coupons for $1.50 off/1 are still available? I am interested in using them for the BiLo family deal but when I click on the link, I only see a DiGiorno Flatbread coupon.

    • Tara

      I cannot find the Revlon coupons. I have looked in the 11/15 SS, and it isnt there. Even on the 11/15 list here on Southern Savers it isn’t listed. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it! Thanks in advance!!

      • marina

        The AJC (atlanta paper) had them in SS 11/15 maybe other regions didn’t. Sorry, not much help

        • Tara

          That must be it. Oh well, can’t have it all! Thanks for the quick reply!! :)

          • Melissa

            Not sure which revlon q’s you’re looking for but as you probaly know publix has the 2.50 off beauty tool(store q/located in adv. buy book) and walgreens has a Dec q book out(found it today by the weekly sales paper as you walk in)that has 3.00 off revlon beauty tool(man q). Stack it at publix for 5.50 off 1 beauty tool. It say use only @ Wags but its a man q.

            PS: Kinda new at this so correct me if I wrong.

            • Tara

              I haven’t gotten the Dec WG book yet, thanks! I don’t know if Publix will take it, my store is weird about Wag coupons, even if it does say manf on it. I did find a link to the Revlon coupon I was looking for. It was listed under this weeks CVS Ad, its on the Target website. Thanks for the help!

      • Jenny

        Revlon coupons are released to larger areas only. You also find this with L’Oreal coupons too (in case you ever want those). You can find them online though on http://www.thecouponclippers.com or ebay.

    • Holly

      I can’t find the pepperidge farm goldfish cracker coupons…can someone give me some advice?

        I am also having trouble finding them. I have searched & searched for them, but they are nowhere to be found for me either. Can anyone PLEASE tell me where to find them? My son LOVES Goldfish & I want to get him a couple of bags while they are SO cheap.

      • Amy

        I can’t find the printable Goldfish crackers coupon either – frustrating – my three girls love them and go through them like water. :(

    • I couldn’t find the goldfish crackers coupon either – hope someone can help.

      • sara

        see my reply above. hope it helps

    • Michelle

      Is it my computer or has the print size on the comments changed? I got out my reading glasses and still cannot make out some of the comments. Any suggestions? Love your site!!!

    • Crystal

      None of my local Publix ever put out the Winter Savings Booklet (I called both stores and asked). Does anyone have an idea on how I can get one?

    • Krista

      Jenny, I just wanted to say thank you for all you do. I have saved SO SO SO much money since discovering your site. I am a cahsier at Publix as I have stated before & it was a customer that actually shared this site with me. I have also shared it with others that I have seen wondering how people do it. I have also impressed my husband with my savings as well as my SIL. I am planning to teach her how to do it as well.

      So I really just wanted to say thank you. It is b/c of you that I have been able to keep as much stock in my house as I have!!! You are the BEST!!

    • Tammy

      I am having trouble locating the goldfish coupon…I have put in several zip codes but it does not come up in my selections

      • Tamara

        I cannot find it either. I put in different zip codes too and no luck. I was beginning to think I was missing something!

      • susan

        I found at shopathome.com. They have lots of coupons. It was under the grocery section. (The one with the most coupons). I was just on there and they are still posted.

    • christa

      my coupon from the Atlanta AJC for Hellmann’s Mayo is .60/1 which makes it $ 1.74 each (RP 11/15)

    • michele

      I was wondering if anyone knew of a website similar to this one for the west coast (Las Vegas to be exact). Jenny and all of you have been such a blessing to me and my family in the last few months. We are moving there, for a job relocation and would love to find this kind of help out there as well. THANKS in advance if anyone can help!

    • Michelle

      Just got back from Publix and spent $30 and saved $72. Whoo Hoo. Thanks Jenny :)

    • I can’t find the KIm and Scott Pretzels at my Publix. Aren’t they the frozen kind?

      • Jenny

        They are frozen. In my store they are near the appetizer type stuff.

        • Sara

          Mine were near the frozen breads, rolls.

      • lynn

        i found them in the frozen breakfast section

      Went last night- the SeaPak (BOGO) had $1 off peelies at my store. My family loves the Salmon burgers and I won’t buy unless they’re on sale. I was thrilled to find the q’s in addition!
      My total was $40 and change- saved $78 (I can’t do percentages- but it wasn’t a bad night!). My husband was with me and had thrown a couple extra items in the cart that raised our total…

      Thanks for a great site.

      Colgate toothpaste coupon for .75 off in 12/6 SS, making it .75

    • Anne Marie

      I found peelies for $1/2 Hillshire Farms any smoked sausage product. Combined with the store coupon it makes them $1 each. I didn’t have my Winter Savings booklets with me, so I will have to go back and get 2 more.

      I am having trouble locating the “Winter savings booklet.” Is this booklet in the same place where the advantage buy booklets are located. There are a few coupons I need from there but have been to two Publixes and cannot find them. Help!

        You may want to call the store and ask someone in costumer service. I havne’t seen any Publix put them out where they sales papers are. Most of them keep them behind the costumer service desk.

      • Adrienne

        I can never find them at one Publix but at the other one in my area they put them out with the other ads and they are very hit and miss, most of the time there are none, but every once in a while I will find one. Then today there were probabaly 30 out. So they must get some in occassionally and then put them out as they get them, so I just try to go there as often as possible, this is only the 3rd time I have even seen them then they are gone for a week or more.

      THANKS for everything you do for this web site! My husband lost his job in September and I am a school teacher, needless to say we have had to buckle our belts and stretch our pennies! I went to Publix last night and spent 43.86 and saved 48.73! My husband was THRILLED! I am hooked on your web site! When he gets a job, I will still shop like this! It is literally getting free food! Thank you!!

      I went to Publix the other night and picked up about 10 items that were on sale and ended up paying only $1.78. The cashier’s were not very friendly and kind of treated me like I had stole the items. I don’t know why they do that when they are getting re-imbursed for most of the coupons I used.

      Anyway… The Kim and Scott Cinnamon Pretzels are AMAZING!!! I heated one up in the oven this morning (recommend oven instead of microwave) and it was so good. I got 2 boxes but wish I could get more before the sale ends b/c I don’t think I want to spend $5 on 4 pretzels. $0.50 is so much better!

      I have a question. I am pretty new to couponing but I am loving it so far. This site has helped me so much. I was wondering if the Target printable coupons that say “Manufacturer’s coupon” count as Target or manufacturers, according to Publix. My Publix will no longer take Target coupons because we do not have a Super-Target within a 5 mile radius, but they wouldn’t take my Target “Manufacturer’s coupon” either. I was wondering if I should take this to a higher authority in the Publix chain. Does anyone have any insight into this? Thanks, Melanie

      • valerie

        my husband works for publix so i always ask him when i have coupon questions. if a manu coupon says to redeem at a certain store (save-a-lot, petsmart, target, etc) they will only take it if it has the appropriate information for them to be reimbursed (mailing address, etc). otherwise it will be treated as a competitor coupon, so if your area does not consider target a competitor then they would not be able to accept that coupon. hope this helps.

        • Melanie

          Thanks for the help!

    • laura from TN

      I went to the McKays Mill Publix yesterday, and the cashier wouldn’t take the Food Lion coupon and the manufacturer coupon for the Kraft cheese. She “claimed” that she could do only one of them and not both if it is a competitor coupon. I have never had problems at the Publix on Royal Oaks with their taking both a competitor Q and a manufacturer Q before. I might stop going to that Publix because I always end up in her line no matter how hard I try to get in someone elses.

    • I have coupons from smartsource for .40 off that state do not double. Will Publix double these coupons anyway?


      • Caroline

        It depends on your cashier, but in two months I haven’t had a Publix cashier who hasn’t doubled them.

    • Wanda

      I just returned from the Central Ave Publix in Summerville and spoke with Steve the manager, he said they no longer will be accepting Harveys coupons. They are not a competitor to “that” store. He accepted it today, but they will soon be posting a notice at the entrance to help us couponers know what their policies are and who they do and don’t accept.

    • tahsha

      Is anyone else having problems getting the Kim and Scott coupon to come up? A blank page just comes up for me? I would really like to try these, if I can get the coupon to print.

    • Caroline

      FYI, there was a $1 coupon for any Solo cups, plates, or bowls in the Sunday paper.

    • DeeDee

      I went to day just to get a few things, mostly the money makers… I bought organic milk, 2 Benevia,2 Sundown vitamins, 2 Pretzels, 2 Vlasic and had to pay 44 cents!! I LOVE THIS SITE!! I LOVE PUBLIX!!!

    • Julie

      Where do you find the prices to Publix? I live in Florida and for example the Nestle Toll House cookies are $3.39, not $2.89. I have found this with several items that are posted.

      Also, how long do you need to collect coupons before you start seeing a big savings? I’m still spending about $200 at the store for two weeks (feeds family of 5) but still need to hit the store for milk, oj, etc.

      • DeeDee

        IF you collect/hoard your coupons AND match them up to each weekly sale, thus buying multiples of each BOGO and building your stockpile/pantry… You should see a significant drop by the end of the coupon cycle. In the south that is about 6-9 weeks, if you are in the north it is more like 9-12. I began making my menu reflect that week’s sales, plus my pantry stash and about halfway thru the cycle I began deducting $10 every week or two from my budget. I’d like to deduct about $10-15 more by the first of the year.

        • DeeDee

          Ok, I just re-read your post and realized that we are both in FL. You will see the sales cycle around about every 6-9 weeks. When I started this about 8 weeks ago, that stuff is now coming back on sale this week and next.

    • A lot of useful information. Thank you!
