      There was a $3/2 blinkie last week for Starbucks coffee :o)

      • Michael

        My Publix has the Emerald dry roasted peanuts ONLY as BOGO, so the linked coupon won’t work for me on this item. Thanks Jenny! Happy New Year!!

        • Cindy

          I downloaded the Diamond nuts coupon and it worked at my Publix in GA.

      • jessica

        Dont forget that in the Yellow advantage flyer for publix there is a $1 off 2 publix coupon you can stack!!

        • jessica

          oops! Sorry- for the Fresh Express salad mix

    • karen

      On the Chex mix the coupon I PRINTED says “Do not double or triple”. It seems that most of my Betty Crocker coupons that I print say the same. Does Publix double them anyways? Or should the price really say $.74? It always happens on the Betty Crocker potatoes too.

      • Michelle

        Hi Karen, I think it just depends on your store. My store supresses the doubling for any coupon that states “do not double or triple.” However, I know there are other stores that go ahead and double them anyway. You may just need to ask your customer service what their policy is on that.

      • Val

        The doubling depends on your cashier and store. Most of the cashiers at the store I shop at will hit a button that will stop the coupon from doubling. This is a very heated subject when it comes to coupons at stores that advertise doubling, but don’t want to double those. Seems to me that if the store says they are willing to take $.50 loss on something why should the manufacture care. I think more stores are starting to follow the print on the coupon because it helps with their profit, so I can’t blame them.

        • Lori

          At my Publix in Grayson GA. They always double all coupons 50 cents or less.

      • Stefanie

        I agree…it depends on the cashier. I’ve had some go through and some to be supressed, at both Publix & BiLo.

        • Ashley

          Not the cashier. *eye roll*

          Cashiers follow the policy laid out to them by their managers. Period. Its not their fault, they’re doing their jobs.

          • Lynn

            I go to the same Publix every week, and there is no consistency. So, in my experience, whether or not coupons like that are doubled is dependent on the cashier.

            • Sarah S.

              I also go to the same Publix every week and I know the cashiers who double ALL .50 and below coupons and the ones who suppress your savings when the coupon says do not double or triple.

      • Cindy B.

        This is a pet peeve of mine. Why does the manufacturer care if the store wants to double the coupon?! I really think the manufacturer should not be able to dictate if the coupon is doubled. It’s no difference to their bottom line–the money for the doubling comes from the store!

    • ZJ

      Thanks for putting this up! I’m actually sitting at work right now (yes, on Christmas Eve). Now, I can make the most of my time and prep for next week’s shopping. :)

    • Chrissy

      The 11/22 SS insert had a $1 off coupon for Florida’s Natural Orange Juice, 59oz and up. Should work for the 64oz OJ on sale for $2.50! Hurray for cheap OJ! I love this stuff, but I have to treat it as a “luxury” item and only pick it up if it’s on sale with a coupon. Thank you, Jenny, for your help and for keeping this blog!

    • Michelle

      The emerald coupon states that it is for a 10oz size…but the coupon is good until Feb 28, 2010 so I’m sure we’ll have the chance to use it anyway.

      Happy New Year Jenny….I am so happy that I am starting this year majorly stocked up thanks to you!

    • Larissa

      I have the crabcakes coupon from my e-mail, but it will not let me print. Anyone know why

      • I guess were in the same boat, I filled out the survey and it still did not give me the coupon

      • carla

        I filled out the info on the web site and got an email. The link was bad and didn’t work! I replied to the email that the link was not working and they responded with a coupon in the email! I have printed it and heading up to Publix in a little while to try it out! That that the company was quick in responding to my email! Looks like we are having crab cakes for dinner! :)

    • Jennifer

      Jenny, Thanks so much for your tireless efforts in helping so many afford meals for their families. You are a blessing and so appreciated. Merry Christmas and the happiest of New Year’s to your family. May God bless you richly!

    • Alisha

      FYI……spoke to a Publix employee at the Ashley Landing store on last night and was told that effective 1/1/10 Publix will no longer be accepting World Market coupons. Glad that I was able to use both of mine…used the $15 off one last night and the $5/20 W.M. coupon today at a different Publix.

      • I used the $15 for the first time that same night at Ashley Landing. I was surprised they’d take to begin with, but pleased. Sad they won’t from now on. I ran into another SS couponer there that night too! How fun!

    • sara

      Juicy Juice question:

      Can the Target store coupon for $1 off 2 be stacked with the Manuf coupon for $1 off 2 for a total of $2 off 2 @ $2.99 which makes it .99 for 2? I would assume this would work if your Publix accepts Target coupons.

      • Jenny

        If your store accepts them, then yes!

        • sara

          Awesome! Thanks. Hope you had a great Christmas!!

      • Carla

        My Publix would not take the Target coupon tonight! I was mad and asked them to take the juicy juice out of my cart! Since the coupon said Target web coupon and not manufacturer’s coupon they wouldn’t take it. I was running into the store for just a few things and I didn’t take my binder in with me ~ but I ran out to the car and grabbed another coupon that I had for juicy juice. I talked with the manager (she was very nice) and she said that they will take ANY manufacturer coupon – even if it has a target logo on it, but they can’t take the ones just for Target since it is not in the 5 mile radius of being in direct competition with my Publix. They do take other grocery store coupons but only if they are in direct competition and within 5 miles! Oh well, lesson learned!

        • My Publix tonight in Goodlettsville would also not take my Target coupon tonight for the lunch meat. There is a Target in the 5 mile radius but they said it was not a supercenter and that was why. I also spoke to the manager to let him know I was unhappy with this development.

          • Jenni

            Since some on here have asked about this, and Jenny hasn’t YET responded (though I, too, hope that she soon will), here is what I found out directly from a Publix store manager that handles the coupon processing, which I thought would interest other Southern Savers out there:

            He said that they used to take them, but the manufacturers refused to reimburse them in the end (saying they only agreed to reimburse Target for them, not any other stores – which likely means they sold goods for a higher base price to Target to offset the coupon, but sold them for cheaper to other stores), so they had to quit accepting them.

            So, basically, if your Publix takes them, great! Enjoy it while you can. But if they don’t, can you really blame them? The manager I talked with said that some stores were losing $7,000 to $8,000.00 a MONTH due to coupons they were accepting, but not getting reimbursements for – mostly competitor coupons (like CVS, Walgreens, Target, etc), by the way, which is why they tightened the restrictions so much in recent months.

            I’d also like to add that this manager knows that I am a Southern Savers couponer, and he was totally respectful and pleasant with me, and stated that he had no problem with couponers who go by the rules, doesn’t swipe the coupon booklets a stack at a time, and is polite and patient when they have to decline a coupon, etc. And this was AFTER I’d not watched the time and didn’t get to the check-out until 15 minutes after closing. I’m just amazed by their customer service.

    • Rose

      Anyone know where else to get a Bertolli coupon? There are no more prints left.

      • Jessica


      • Michelle

        There’s a $2 off of one on the Save-A-Lot store website.
        I am pretty sure they don’t say Save-A-Lot on them when you print them and my Publix has taken these before.

        • Cindy

          mine said Save-a-lot and they took it!!!

          • mine too – they also say manufacturer’s coupon

      • Rhonda

        I just printed 2 Bertolli coupons:

      Also, should I be able to stack the Target Oscar Mayer Deli meat coupon with the Manuf coupon like this?

      Cost $3.00 x 2 = $6.00
      -$1 off 2 manuf coupon
      (2)-$1 Target coupons

      Total for 2 packages of lunchmeat: $3.00

      • Dana

        Yes you should be able to do that.

        • Crystal

          My Target (Spring Hill, TN) will only accept one printable target coupon per transaction now (because it says that on Target printables)

    • sara

      My dad found Emerald coupons for $1 off any 2 from a Blinkie dispenser.

    • rebecca

      For those SS who live in the Simpsonville/Mauldin, SC area a bit of information. Publix in Mauldin no longer accepts the Food Lion coupons. The asst. manager stated they were not a direct competitor. However, the Simpsonville Publix generally accepts the FL coupons. It depends on the graciousness of the cashier.

      • Ashley

        I shop at Simpsonille Publix so thanks for the tip. I actually haven’t taken a Food Lion coupon up there since I thought it had to be a “direct competitor” within 5 miles. That is what a cashier told me at Woodruff Rd Publix, which I quickly learned is a lot stricker with my coupons than Simpsonville! I always shop Simpsonville now so thanks, I will ask about Food Lion coupons next time I’m in there!

        • Natasha

          I shop at the Simpsonville Publix as well. They told me tonight that they only accept Bi-lo, Ingles and Bloom coupons. I was really disappointed since I had the Save A lot coupon for $5 off of $20 and a food lion coupon for $1 off of drinks. But now I know for future visits. Any other suggestions for more coupons?

      • Rita

        Both the Simpsonville and the Mauldin store quit accepting Food Lion coupons back in August (I think). Their cashiers at both locations were telling everyone at the end of July that as of Aug 1st (I think) they would no longer accept any coupons other than Bilo, Bloom, Publix, and Ingles. I’ve not been able to use any other competitors coupons at either place since then.

    • sarah

      since the subject has been raised Ill go ahead and ask- do manufacturers reimburse stores the face value of the coupon or do they reimburse the doubled value of the coupon as long as it doesnt state do not double? Honestly- the other two grocery stores in my area do not double if the coupon says not to, and the both override the coupon value if it exceeds item value- while my publix doesnt bother with either. I will be very dissapointed if publix gets on board with this. Provided they are not getting reimbursed for the extra $ when they double anyway- I dont see this as a neccessary change.

      • allen

        no the stores only get the face value for the coupon. when it doubles it comes right off their bottom line

    • tonya

      Went Publixing :) and chex mix, Fridays meals and salad mix were not on sale. Anyone else? I double checked in the flyer and nothing. I was so excited to stock up on the Friday’s apps. Oh well. I still had a great trip. Spent $25 and saved $95. The cashier and lady behind me were very impressed. Also spent $10 on about $83 in product between CVS and Walgreens. I feel like I owe Jenny the hugest Christmas present ever. But since I don’t have your address….have a very Merry Christmas. You’ve helped make mine and my families great! :)

        The sale doesn’t start until tomorrow-Saturday. 12/26

      • allen

        love to know what Publix you went to on Christmas day being they were all closed???

    • My wife tried to use a Food Lion coupon at the Simpsonville Publix last week and was told that they couldn’t honor them. BTW – Thanks for running this site – we saved $35 off our grocery bill last week.

    • Kimberly

      Where is the Cheeze-It Coupon. I did not think there was a RP 12/13.

    • Stephanie

      Can you use the Target manufacturer’s coupon at Publix. Do they look at it like a regular manfacturer coupon? Thanks.

      • sarah

        my publix took it, no questions asked. it does say manufacturer coupon on it at the top, but it also has several target logos on it. hth

        • Shannon

          My Publix said sorry we aren’t target and wouldn’t take my Target Manu coupons, but they took the store coupon! I thought it made no sense, but that is what they did.

          • Vanessa

            They should have taken you manufacturer coupons with “Target Red Dot”. No where on them do they say “Redeemable only at Target”. My store manager said if it says “Redeemable only at “wherever”” and the wherever is not Publix, they can not redeem them because they are some sort of deal with the store and manufacturer. (They will not get reimbersed. Otherwise no problems at mine.

          • Carla

            Too funny as I had the opposite happen to me tonight! They took the manufacturer coupon with the Target logo but NOT the Target web coupon! Since Target is not in the “5 mile radius” competition with Publix! Go figure!

            • deedee

              Mine refused to take the $5/4 Kellogg’s. they said they no longer take printable $5 or higher Q’s! I have never had them refuse before! Going to try it again tonight at a different store.

    • Sarah

      The store gave me crud about the crab cake coupon, it wouldn’t scan. She took them to the back to ‘check them out”. She came up and gave up and said just to manually enter them. I suspect maybe the problem was that the coupon came to my email like a pdf and not a limited coupon? The look a little funky too.

      I won’t go to this cashier again, she claimed not to have seen my juice boxes, and had a real dilemma with letting me stack coupons. Ugh! Poor lady behind me!

      • Nina

        I hate pdf coupons…because you’re right they look funky and suspicious…but we know that they are legit–I just don’t know if they are worth the hassle sometimes.

      • Tina

        I had this same issue. I did not like the Cashier Supervisor giving me stink eye and saying, “We don’t except copied coupons.” I explained how I received it, etc. and she let it go through, but it was embarrassing. I won’t use a pdf again!

      • Michelle

        Mine wouldn’t scan either, nor would the Publix store crab cake coupons, so my cashier had to key each one in, but fortunately she was very nice about it….the ONE cashier that is a pain (and has skipped scanning many of my coupons before) wasn’t working, thank goodness. However, nothing at my Publix was signed, kind of a pain. And I was there from about 10:30-after 11….can’t believe there were no signs!

    • kim

      When I printed the free ensure printable it came out as “buy 3 six-packs get 1 free”.

    • Sarah S.

      The link for the Swiss Miss hot cocoa coupon from Food Lion is not working. Page not found error.

      • melissa

        I just got back from Publix and the Swiss Miss Hot Coco was not on sale. I found it very frustrating as I just printed out 9 coupons for the product.

        • Cindy

          My Publix in Eatonton GA did not have the Swiss Miss or the cooking oil/vinegar on sale either. Oh well still got some good stuff cheap. Thanks Jenny.

    • sara

      Just wanted to share my quick trip today…Spent $15 and saved $69. Here is what I got:
      (6) Oscar Mayer Deli meats/used(3)$1/2 man + (6)$1 Target
      Publix bread on sale for .79
      (4) Juicy Juice 8 pks/used (2)$1/2 man + (2)$1/2 Target
      (2) Fleishman Yeast/used (2).40 man
      (2) XMas Rope Lights 18ft on clearance for $2 each
      (2) Glade Sense & Spray Cinn Apple/used (2)$4.50 store + competitor coupons for each + man coupons made them around .50 each I think
      (2) Glade Fragrance candles/used (2) $4 store + man coupons made them very close to FREE cause they were $5.99 each
      Used $5 off $25 Rite Aid coupon

      The lunchmeat alone without coupons would have been $18!! So, not bad for a quick trip.

      • Debbie

        wow! where is your publix?

        • sara

          Pelham, Al at the corner of Valleydale and Hwy 31

          • Debbie

            Lucky gal! Great shopping. Columbia,SC not sooo good!

          • Carla

            I might have to come on down to Pelham and shop with you! WOW! Publix in Vestavia would not take the Target coupons tonight! I am jealous! You GO GIRL!

            • gab18481

              The Publix here in Montgomery wouldn’t take the Target Juicy Juice Mfr’s coupon either. They have taken them in the past. The cashier told me that they won’t accept any of the coupons with the Target logo on them. I thought about talking to the manager but it was late and I was tired of being there.

    • Dierdre

      The BOGO Emerald Nuts, 16oz., at $3.29 ($1.64), had peelies on the bottles for -1.00 each! So, it totaled to $1.29 for 2!

    • jodi

      A cashier at the Goose Creek Publix said that they will not be accepting any competitor coupons starting January 1st.

      • Katie

        WHAT??? I just asked a manager last week and she said their coupon policy wasn’t changing…I guess we’ll see.

        • I will be sooo sad when/if this happens. Guess I’ll be heading to BiLo alot more then, huh?

    • Migdalia

      The Emerald sea salt that’s on BOGO has a $1/1 coupon attached to the lid at my Publix. That made it $1.29 for 2! Thanks Jenny!!

    • June

      Purina One dog food 18 lb bags are on sale this week. Some have specially marked pkgs that have a $5 on our next purchase of Purina products redeemable at Publix inside the bags. Since they are mfg. coupons they can be combined with Publix coupons from the “Savings for all Seasons” booklet.

    • So much FUN!!! I used coupons back when they were five and ten cents and the double/triple was unheard of. In September I started saving coupons again. My best trip was last week at Publix. I saved $105.13. When the cashier finished, he said, $3.98. I reached for my debit card and he said that they owed me. He open the cash register and handed me the money. I know this does not happen often and I was ready with fillers if needed. I went home with a lot of groceries and money in my hand…nearly $4.00. I am still in shock. My favorite store is Publix in Goose Creek where they “make the customer happy”. Carol

      • Rebekah

        WOW!!! That is great…I would almost like to see you thought process…I was SHOCKED too when you said they owed you! That was DEF a good trip! Like I said I would love to see how you did that…:) great job!

      • Amanda

        Carol I also shop at the Publix in Goose Creek and find them to be AWESOME. I have always shopped there and even before I used my coupons I thought they were awesome. The managers and employees are wonderful people. I have had credits there several times also.

    • Melanie

      My coupons don’t scan in the store. Is this a common problem? Any suggestions?

    • Kenya

      Bertolli coupons must be long gone. I’ve gone there several times over the last two weeks to get nothing! sigh. Also, be careful Ooltewah, TN Publix doesn’t accept Food Lion coupons that say things like “$2 off of deli products.” I was turned down last week. They said it must be for a specific product.

      • TinaN

        I got Bertolli coupons from savealot.com. They print as manufacturer coupon.

      • Rhonda

        I just printed 2 Bertolli coupons:
        http://www.coupons.com (use zip code 20202)

    • Laray

      Is anyone having trouble finding the DiGiorno coupon in SS 12/13? My paper has a small add on DiGiorno but no coupon. Also, I noticed that my Bertolli coupon expires 12/31 since I was planning on going to Publix 12/31 can I still use the coupon on that day or does it have to be used 12/30. Sorry for all of the questions but new to using coupons effectively. :-)

      • Michelle

        The Digorno coupon was on a 2 page spread advertising “Delicious Holiday Savings” and was on the bottom left page.

        You can use that Bertolli coupon on the 31st but not after.

        • Laray

          Thanks Michelle
          I was looking in the right place. That is just so weird. There is a picture of a Digiorno pizza box in the bottom left corner but no coupon. Oh well.

    • I had a lot of trouble just getting the crabcake coupon – I’ve been submitting it all day and getting a server error message, so I finally called and was left on hold with Phillips customer service forever. Then when I went to my email, it looks like my registration did go through and I have the coupon! What a pain, hope I don’t have trouble in the store tonight!

      • carla

        The email that I got had a link for the coupon that was not working! I replied to the email and got a quick response! They emailed me a coupon in the email. I was able to print it without any issues! Crab cake for dinner tonight!

      • My store would not accept it at all! Because the coupon does not have the words “manufacturer’s coupon” on it! I told them the process I went through to get the coupon and that according to this site none of the coupons were scanning but they still refused it – even though it has an address to mail it in for reimbursement. I’m emailing Phillips tonight, thanks for your reply! Was really looking forward to a change from holiday food and was going to pair the crabcakes with cheap salad. Hope they can resolve this before the Publix coupon expires.

    • Lisa N

      Question- How exactly can I accomplish this?

      $1 off Wonka Gummies printable
      (make them FREE at Publix or 57¢ at Target)

      I re-read the weekly deals and I am not finding this deal. Is it hidden somewhere else?
      Thanks Jenny!!

      • Rhonda

        The Publix Yellow Advantage Flyer(expires Jan 8th)has these advertised 5/$5. You don’t need a coupon, and can buy 1/$1.

      • I saw some in the Christmas clearance aisle but didn’t see the price – should be half off.

    • Holly

      Jenny or anyone can you explain what the new coupon policies are going to after Jan 1? I am a little nervous that Publix is going to start changing a lot of things after the new year. Could you do a article on the new policies….that would be great!

    • sara

      Went by Publix this morning:

      (10) 8pks of Juicy Juice
      (5) Wonka Gummies
      1 20oz Coke Zero

      Total Due: $2.49

      • Megan

        How did you manage this. My calculations show the best you can do on the juicy juice is .49 each. Your calculations are .25 for each and free coke zero. How did you do it?

        • Jenny

          She probably had a $/$$ coupon $5 off $20 etc.

          • sara

            exactly…cvs $5off$20 purchase.

    • Amber

      I went to my local Publix yesterday and got 2 bottles A-1, 2 pkgs Fresh Express Salad mix, 2 pkgs Chex Mix, 2 four packs of Bumble Bee tuna, and 7 boxes of Kelloggs Shredded Wheat for $7.35!!!!!!!! :) I’m soooo in love with this site. Anyhoo, the real reason I am posting is to let you know that the flavored Kellogg’s Mini Wheats (part of the B1G1 deal) have 2 little tokens on them to get a free dvd movie (FREE, shipping included). You need 5 tokens to get the dvd. If you were to use the Target coupon ($5 off 4 boxes), you’d get 4 boxes of cereal for around $3.36 b4 taxes + a free dvd!

    • Michelle

      Went to Publix on Kennerly Road in Irmo, SC today and was told by my cashier that Publix will no longer accept Food Lion store coupons for produce ($2 off $5 produce exp 12/29), because FL does not hold their produce to as high of a standard as Publix.

      • Jenny

        That’s quite funny. They are across the street from a Food Lion too!

        • Corlina

          That Publix wouldn’t accept my Target coupon for the Juicy Juice either. I’m wondering if the one on Harbison would?

          • Jenny

            There aren’t any Publix stores in Columbia that take Target competitor coupons. They will take the ones that are manufacturer coupons but not if they are true store coupons. Sorry.

    • Rhonda

      I needed to bake some cookies today, so I made a quick trip and this is what I got for $1.98: ( I also had a 5/$20 cvs coupon)
      8 packs of Nestle Ultimate Cookies
      2 packs Wonka gummies
      2 bowls of cheerios
      2 emerald nuts

      Yesterday my order was $3.49: (used a 5/$20 cvs coupon)
      4 packs of Nestle Ultimate Cookies
      2 packs Phillips crab cakes
      2 publix soda 2 liter
      1 mattel hot wheels car
      1 pint sheer bliss ice cream

      After seeing how much I’m saving, my sister-in-law is starting to coupon.

    • Jessica

      Honey Nut Cheerios at my Publix (S’ville, SC) were on sale for $1.99…paired with the $1 off coupon you put up recently, great deal! Maybe this is listed above and I just missed it… Thanks for all you do!

    • Michelle

      I just went to my Publix in Lynn Haven Fl and had a GREAT trip!! I saved a total of $324.78 and paid .55c(which was tax) out of pocket in the end…They actually owed me $55.00 and made me shop more to spend the overage! So Not only did I get all of my groceries free in the first place, I got an extra $55 free so I bought meat…what I usually do not have a coupon for!! This is not the first time I have had overages and I love to spend them back at Publix! They are a great company!

      • erin

        I would love to see how you did that. That is AMAZING!

      • Hope

        Wow!!! I would love to see how you did that! I have done really good but not that good!

      • cloggersmama

        Michelle, please post how you did this!

      • terra

        michelle –

        Tell me your secret…i would love to know how you saved so much..

        please let us know.


    • My Publix will not take CVS coupons – are they manufacturer’s coupons like Walgreen’s RR? It seems that some stores will take them.

    • erin

      So, do your publix take the CVS $5/20 coupon? How interesting if they do. I will have to try it.

      • sara

        The one in Pelham, AL does. They are very good about competitor coupons (there is one cashier I avoid at ALL costs though. She likes to lay out my coupons and count my items purchased so I steer clear of her). The new one in McCalla, AL takes CVS and Target as well. The McCalla one is next door to a Target, near CVS, and a Piggly Wiggly. My sister-in-law went there yesterday and she said they are super nice and will take any coupon practically. She did not have any issues with coupons from them. We both avoid going to the Helena, AL one period. I helped my dad pick out some straight manuf coupons cause he shops at the one in Helena only. So, hopefully they will not hassle him. I am trying to encourage him to use coupons.

    • amy

      My publix had b1g1 on Starbucks “Winter blend”..they were in the front in a round metal basket and they are b1g1 for 6.99 and then use the $3/2 (which is on the coffee isle in front of the starbucks and this makes both of them $3.99. I went back to do it again and they were all gone so you may find some…hopefully so.

    • libby

      Has anyone ever priced method products at Publix?

      • Brittany

        There are very few at the stores in my area (N FL). Only 2 kinds of hand soaps and some baby items. They run about 20 cents higher than Target.

      • deedee

        I used the Method $2 coupons from the Winter Family Savings book at Target this week and got holiday handsoaps for 54 cents.

    • angel

      I want to thank you for saving us so much money.

    • Janet

      The Swiss Miss was not BOGO today. They were $1.99 each. If they were supposed to be BOGO please let me know where and what advertisement that sale was listed.

      Thank you.

    • Jennifer Leath

      There is a coupon for Pace Salsa on the last page of the Campbell’s Nourish Your Family Booklet making them .84 a piece!

    • Holly

      I can’t find the Fresh Express coupon. I click on the link, but don’t see it. Can anyone help?

    • Sandra

      I am not seeing the express salad coupon for 55 cents on the website, can anyone help? Thank you

    • Michele

      Publix in Oakwood Commons, Hermitage TN confirmed for me tonight they will accept the Save-a-Lot $5 coupon (there is one within 5 miles); they also confirmed if the coupon says DO NOT DOUBLE, they won’t… poo poooo poo. Seems like more coupons say this. Oh well, at least Kroger still does in my neighborhood.

    • rachel

      the K mart in Trussville AL has coupon booklets by the registers. They are K-mart store coupons. I found several that would combine with Publix and/or Manu. I don’t know if my publix will take them, but it’s worth a try since they take target’s.

    • Susie

      I found Snyders Pretzel coupon for .75/1 in SS 12/6 just in case anyone was looking for any. :)

    • Dawn

      For any of you last minute shopping mom’s there is a coupon in the SS 10/18 for $2.00 off Enfamil and with the store $4.oo off coupon it makes it only $10.00 for the large can. :) Today is the last day!!!

    • Mattie Hyde

      I’m in North Georgia and today I was not allowed to use Target coupons at Publix. Anyone else having this problem?
