    • Paula

      Just wanted to thank you for posting the Publix Coupon Policies. As you can see, even when it is in Black and White – you still have people challenging it. I guess it is human nature.

    • Mindy

      I can’t seem to find these Green Advange Buy flyers…where are they kept at Publix? By the way I love your site and appreciate your hard work!

    • There was a coupon for $4 off any Shick quatro razor in this past Sunday’s paper. This makes both free plus overage!

      • Jenny

        The Schick Razor might not work on disposables, but I will add it and let you guys try. Let me know if it doesn’t work.

    • Annie

      Thanks so much for the new weekly Publix ad! Just an FYI on the capri-suns…the Target q is for $1 off of a 20 pack, don’t know if this will work for the 10 pack that is on sale for $2? Thanks!

    • Sharon

      Glade PlugIns Scented Oil Refills, 2 ct, at $5.49
      -$1 off any Glade PlugIns Scented Oil Refills, Any Twin Pack SS 4/19, or Right at Home Booklet
      (makes it $1.74 ea)

      Combine this with the coupon for free plug in when you buy the refill (it expires 4/30) and you get 2 packs refill and 2 plug ins for 3.49.
      In my boxes of refill I got coupons for FREE Glade impression’s up to 10.99 and in the plug in box was a coupon for 2.00 off 1 box of refills. (spend 3.49 get over 25.00 worth of products)
      You can see the coupon in the box so ck yours, some have them some dont

    • Amy

      Target has the 100 Calorie snacks for $1.93 – so for those of us whose Publix no longer accept Target q’s – makes it 18 cents each at Target b/c Target will stack the two q’s! Same for the Teddy Graham’s – they are $2 per box .. use 2 q’s – makes them 50 cents!

    • There is a $1.00 off any one purchase of Orville Redenbacher popcorn in the May issue of All You Magazine. Thanks for all your work!!

    • lynn

      jenny you are wonderful thank you my sale starts thursday cant wait to get the razors … thanks to your deals i already ahve christmas stocking stuffers almost done yippy

    • Clay

      I don’t think the Target Schick Quattro coupon will work. It says for 4 ct. cartridges or Trimstyle razor, not disposible. The $4 should work because it says $4 off any Schick Quattro for Women razor. Doesn’t specify disposable or not.

    • Brandy

      There’s a $5 off $40 purchase Winn Dixie coupon on the front of the Winn Dixie sales flyer today in the Birmingham News. This can be used at Publix. Not all people who have the news delivered got the same flyer though. I called my mother-in-law to have her save hers for me and her flyer didn’t have it.

    • Sonya

      Jenny, On the Back to Nature coupon, are you speaking of the coupon that came with the magnet? All my coups were for Bear Naked granola.

      • Jenny

        That was the one. My memory was off last night sorry. I’ll fix it!

    • MelRae

      Yay! I am going to totally make the most of this week’s trip! I have a Publix $5 off $30 coupon, and I confirmed with customer service last week that they do accept Target coupons (they said for grocery items only…I guess they meant food items). So my goal will be to get $30+ worth of groceries for under $10.

    • Tiffani

      There is also a $1/2 for the Nabisco 100 Calorie mini cakesters packs here
      You could stack that with the Target coupon

    • Kristen

      Is the in ad coupon for Nestle Good Start Supreme a Publix coupon or a manufacturer’s? There is a $3 off Nestle Good Start Food Lion Coupon and I received an $8.00 check for a Nestle Good Start in the mail not too long ago. Can all of those be used together???

    • Glenda

      Where can I find the $5 off $30.00?

    • Thank you so much for all of your hard work that you do for us!

    • jmr

      The Birmingham Publix on 150 took my Target coupons yesterday. Of course, they are building a SuperTarget right across the interstate from it.

    • Rebecca in Snellville, GA

      I went today to make my last trip for my coupons for Publix before our new week starts tomorrow and I picked up a couple of coupons I wanted to pass along. There was a big display at the back of the store near the refrigerated section at the Publix on Highway 124 near Centerville of Oreo cookies. There were three different tear pads on it. One tear pad had a coupon for $1.50 off when you buy 1 package of Nabisco Oreo Cookies OR Fun Stix OR Cakesters (5 oz or larger) AND 1 Gallon of Milk, expires 6/30/09. Another one was Save $2.00 when you buy any one (1) Nabisco Wheat Thins product (9 oz or larger) AND one (1) Crystal Light Drink Mix Product, expires 9/30/09. And the third one is FREE 1/2 gallon of Milk when you buy two (2) 15 oz. or larer packages of Oreo cookies, expires 4/30/09 though.

    • Meghan

      I can’t find where the Daisy sour cream is on sale for .99. I’ve looked and looked even in the advantage paper. I see the Breakstone but not Daisy sour cream.

    • Meghan

      I also can’t find where the Suave Naturals Shampoo or Conditioner is on sale in the paper. I see Pantene but not Suave. Does anyone else know where these are?

    • Joy

      Meghan, I think the Daisy isn’t a sale price, just regular for the 8 oz. I was buying sour cream the other night and noticed it. With the 50 cent coupon, it makes if free if your store doubles. i.e. if you don’t live in Florida…

    • Michelle

      Brandy, Thanks for the heads up on the Winn-Dixie $5 off $40—These make all the difference!

    • Joy

      Meghan, I know that Suave is part of the “Publix Essentials”. It may or may not be included in your weekly flyer.

    • Emily

      Did I see something previously about the V8 Fusion going on sale somewhere soon? Just wondering as I have quite a few $1 and $2 off coupons I’ve accumulated through printables and in various magazines.

    • Caroline

      Publix will take the RiteAid $5 off $25 printable and also the Kroger mailers to members that are 10% off (ex. $8 off $80).
      I also got a $5 off $30 Publix coupon in the mail with the Publix mailer.

    • Shannon

      Contessa Restaurant Quality Meal, Asst Varieties 22 or 24-oz bag $4.99

      There was a $2/1 blinkie I picked up yesterday at Publix.

    • Michelle

      Have any of you received the $10 Publix gift card from the Pillsbury/General Mills promotion in February? I haven’t received mine yet, and I’m sure that I mailed the information over 8 weeks ago. Any ideas?


    • There is a supplement to this week’s ad. Jenny, I have posted it on my site(too long to list here). Not sure if this is regional. Valid same dates as the ad.

    • tonya

      has anyone ever frozen smart balance spread?

      i also remember it being said that v8 fusion was going to be on sale coming up soon at publix. just not this week.

    • Kristen


      I have frozen the smart balance sticks, but not the spread. The sticks turned out fine.

    • tonya

      thanks kristen.

      i think it will freeze fine. i always freeze butter.

    • Jenn

      I have frozen all of my Smart Balance products. They have been fine.

    • Jenn

      I meant to say all of my smart Balance spead products, sorry!

    • Delta

      Thanks for this list Jenny! I just came aross it this week after my Publix cashier suggested it. She noticed my savings last week, and asked what sites I used. I had just been using the Publix ad combining it with the coupons I have and been doing pretty good avereraging about 45% savings per week. Never knew that you can use Target and other competitor printables at Publix! Hopefully more savings to come!

    • Folole

      Thanks for all the hard work Jenny. I just wanted to add that I used the $4 off on any Schick Quattro for women razor, trimstyle razor or refill. It worked:) Also, another deal if you use the $1/2 glad product manf. coupon and use 2 – $1 off FLIPS for glad food storage and etc. I got 2 boxes of 50 count sandwich bags for .58 cents. They are priced at $1.79

      HTH Folole

    • KC


      Do you have any trouble using Target printables at the Publix on Hwy 6? When I tried they said no because it was not a traditional grocery store.

      • Jenny

        I haven’t tried at Target printable in a while. I tend to only use Food Lions, though the store on 6 has never told me that they wouldn’t take something.

    • tc

      Thanks for all the tips, If anyone figures out if the target coupon will work on the capri sun since it is for a larger box , please let me know. Also since Publix rings their items half price on the bogo , will they accept the $4.00 schick coupon since it will ring up about $3.15? Still curious if it will work for disposables as well. Also does anyone know how much the pupperoni is? Pupperoni.com has a $1.50 off coupon and I have a Target $1.00 of 2, which might make it go over. I’m not sure of publix’s policies on overage. Thanks in advace.

    • Shannon N.

      The pup-peroni IP is only a $1/1 for me :-(

    • Misti

      I was also wondering about the capri sun target q- it is for a 20pk…will it work on the 10pk? guess I will try and see, and let you all know!

    • Kim

      The Old El Paso dinner kits have peelies on them!!! “Buy 2 get $1 off O.E. Refried Beans”.

    • Clay

      I was also able to use the $4 off Schick Quattro Razor coupon for the disposable ones that were BOGO this week. The Pupperoni at my store was $3.69 – $3 in coupons = .69 for two packs.

    • shelly

      Has anyone tried to use the Target on the schick? If not I was wondering If I buy 2 schick at $6.29, If they would let me use 2 4.00 coupons , one on each, even though they will ring up at $3.15 each? I am trying to figure out if I would be better off using the $4.00 coupon and the $2.00 coupon or 2 $4.00 coupons. Still new to PUblix and learning the ropes. Also will the take Rite – aid $5.00 off $25.00 coupons? Thanks

    • Don’t forget about the coupon from 3/15/09 SmartSource for a free Publix shopping bag when you buy two participating General Mills or Betty Crocker products!

    • Paula

      Check with the Customer Service Staff at your Publix to see what coupons that Publix takes. It is up to the manager of that store as to what coupons they consider a competitor. I know the Publix I work at has recently changed what we will take and we don’t take Target or Rite-Aid. So just ask, they will be happy to tell you.

    • shelly

      Thanks Paula. I know they will take target coupons, just not sure what they do if you have a coupon of a higher value than the sale price. I know wal-greens usually adjusts them, but I will check and see. As far as the target coupon for the razors, It doesn’t state disposable razors so I will just have to try it and see if it works. Same goes for the dog treats. If they are around $3.69 each and I buy 2 using 2 $1.50 off and One $1.00 off two target coupons, then my coupons would be more than the purchase. Again I will just try and see. I plan on heading that way later tonight or in the morning.

    • Robine

      I did not see the Winn Dixie ad in the Birminham News…However, Food Smart had an ad for $5.00 off $25.00.

    • amanda

      Where is the in store coupon for the free milk with the general mills cereal?

    • Amanda – its in the Publix Flyer :)

    • lynn

      coupons .com has 5.00 off boost kid essentails you must log in to get it

    • lynn

      my publix policy onoverage is that they will not give cash back but the overage will be applied to the rest of your purchases gl all

    • Missy

      To Kristen,

      The formula checks you get in the mail are just that-checks. They are not taken off as coupons, so you should also be able to use a coupon, store or manufacturer as well.

    • Katie

      Are not all coupon inserts the same? I bought 5 Sunday papers this weekend (4/26) and there were not coupons for Schick Razors, Bandaids, Neosporin, etc. Do they change depending on location?

    • tonya

      fyi…coke 2 liters are “buy 2 get 1 free”. i was mistaken and thought they would ring up $1.19 each. they only had two of the coke zeros i like and when i got home i realized i paid full price $1.79 each and left the third “free” one at the store! i did so good other than that. i could kick myself.

      didn’t want you to make the same mistake.

    • Shanna

      I am very new to the whole coupon thing. I am having fun learing but it all gets so overwhelming at times. I am sure I have read this before but my mind has not processed it yet….. Not sure if I understand the whole stacking thing. Do you mean you can use a $1.00 off coupon from Target and a coupon from SS or RP on the same product at Publix? Is a Target coupon considered a store coupon when shopping at Publix?

    • Penni

      My Publix has always taken Target coupons until tonight. My cashier didn’t know, asked the customer service lady and she said “no”. So I argued a bit since they have always taken them and they called the manager. I waited 10 minutes for him to come to the front and he never came so I gave up and paid without using them. I didn’t even get an apology for the wait! I am so disappointed in my Publix which I have faithfully shopped at every week for 9 years!!! I think I may write a letter!!!

    • tonya

      depends on the cashier!

      i’ve been going to the same publix for years and usually using the same one or two cashiers who take all my coupons at the end and scan them very quickly w/o hesitation. today i got a different gal who scrutinized every single one….even once questioning as to whether or not i purchased an item that one of my coupons was for. she literally had me dig it out of a bag in my cart. it took her longer to scrutinize my coupons than it did to ring up my entire order. this once would have bothered me but now that i’m saving about 70% a trip i just take the “lemons and make lemonade”. spent $37.38…saved $78.31!!!!!!!!!!who’s crying now!

    • Christy

      Will the B1G1 coupon for razors work in GA or just FL? Thanks Jenny!!!

    • Shellie

      My local publix does accept coupons that are more than the price of the product. I bought 3 packs of razors, used 3 $4.00 coupons and 3 $2.00 target coupons and the differce came off my total. I also bought 4 bags of the dog treats at 2 for $3.69, used 4 $1.50 coupons plus 4 of the target coupons as well with no problem at all. The razors and the treats were free with overage that was deducted from my total. I saved a total of 85 dollars and spent only $14.63!! Plus I had coupons for 4 free Right gaurd deo. I thought they may have a problem accepting them all but it worked out well. This is now my favorite store!. Oh, and they did accept the $5.00 off rite aide coupon as well., Not to metion the diet cokes I bought for about a buck each.

      Michelle, I received my $10 Publix gift card from the Pillsbury/General Mills promotion a few weeks ago. Did you keep the number they had on the rebate form? If so, you might want to give them a call to check on your submission.

    • Michelle


      Thank you. I did call them. They called back today and said there was a problem and some people didn’t get into the database. They’re supposed to mail my gift card Friday. :)

      Thanks again!

    • I am just glad that all of the Targets in my area are Supertargets and there is no question about accepting their coupons!!!

    • Melissa C.

      My Pace coupons from the AJC are .40/2. Stinks!

    • Amanda

      Glenda, mine came in the mail.

    • tonya

    • lynn

      yippy kelloggs has been soooo good with their coupons

    • Brooke Gallaway

      I created an account with Farm Rich for the French Toast Sticks Coupons and I see different coupons. One for meatballs and one for cheese sticks. Has their promotion changed or is this a zip code thing?

    • Marie

      Jenny – where do you see the Daisy Sour Cream on sale – I know that it is some sort of ongoing deal but I never see it in their ads – maybe I missed it. :)

      • Jenny

        The daisy sour cream is an advantage buy sale that mgiht not have been in the flyer. I just saw it the last time I was in the store. It should be the same price everywhere.

    • Lana

      The gift card deal and the $1 coupons on the Special K make it 39 cents a box when you buy 5 at Target this week.

    • Marie – The Daisy sour cream is not on sale. It’s just that the regular price is 99 cents for the 8 oz container. But using the 50 cent coupon from the 4/5/09 Smart Source, it doubles and makes the sour cream free. I tried to buy some at my store last night but they were completely sold out. Guess someone had a lot of coupons for it :).

    • Rebekah

      I got the Publix Family Style MAgazine in the mail today and there was a coupon for $1 off Publix Premium Ice Cream or Frozen Yogurt 64 oz ctn…

    • lynn

    • Lani

      Boo- my publix would only take the Schick BOGO coupon and not the $4/off. The manager said it was illegal to give you more than the value of the product (which was BOGO or 3.19/each at my store). So I got 2/3.19. Knew I should have printed the Target Q!!!

    • Beth

      In the Yellow Advantage Flier, isn’t there a coupon for $1.00 off of the 100 calorie packs? I can’t find my to compare. I know there is a coupon for the Special K cereal bars too. Thanks!

    • The coupon in the yellow flyer is manufacturer coupon- Save $1.00 on Keebler Right Bites Snacks 6 ct. + (exp. 5/9/09)

    • lynn

      is special k cereal bars on sale also?

    • TC

      Lani, I think the different stores have some of their own policies. My publix just deducted the whole amount, which was $8.00 using two even though they didn’t cost that much. I was wondering how this would work but I asked before trying to purchase it just in case. I didn’t get the razors I wanted and had to get the x3, but they still took the coupons for the womens razors.

      I didn’t try to use the target coupon on the Capri sun though. I noticed that a lot of it has to do with whether or not the cashiers check the coupons. Some of them just scan them and don’t compare them to the items you have. I guess Publix’s registers are not too particular either.

    • Cayce


      I never received my gift card either. Do you happen to have that number handy?

    • Kerri

      Last week at my Publix there were tear away pads in front of the chips with coupons Save $2.00 on any dip when you buy 2 bags Tostitos chips and Get one bag Tostitos chip free when you buy 2 jars of dip.

    • Amanda

      I am in Valrico,Fl and wanted to see if anyone in the area was able to use the target razor coupons for the disposable and has anyone been able to use the target caprisun coupon for the 20 pack for the ones and Publix?

    • lynn

      Another reason I Love Publix — Publix Checkout Promise Guarantees.
      We stopped for 2 Indian River Orange Juice (59.17 oz). The sign in front of the OJ said $2.79. The OJ rung up for $3.00 each, saving $0.99 each. I informed my cashier of the sign price, she went, checked & saw that I was correct. She gave me the new price ($6.54), I pointed to the Publix Promise Guarantee Sign – she said you want one free? I said yes, I would like one free. My new total was $2.79 + .25(tax) = $3.04 – $2.50 Walgreens Register Rewards = $0.54 oop for 2(two) 1.75L of Indian River OJ Not From Concentrate!!!!

      Q: What happens if a product scans incorrectly during checkout?
      A: Our Publix checkout promise guarantees that if during checkout, the scanned price of an item (excluding alcohol and tobacco products) exceeds the shelf price or advertised price, we will give the customer one of that item free. The remaining items will be charged at the lower price.

      where is the most economical place to buy the k-cups for the keurig coffee machine? i’ve printed off several $1 off/box from smart source. i know its not cheap coffee but this is one of my luxuries i give myself for being a coupon mom.

      thanks for your time.

    • beth

      Hi, this is totally unrelated, but I live in the Northeast (philadelphia, Pa) and we don’t have ANY of these stores for our supermarkets…can i do this with my stores too? I’m sure I can but I ‘ve never saved anything besides a couple coupons here and there no matter how hard we try we still spend a ton on groceries. ANY help will be appreciated! Thanks in advance! And I”m sooo jealous of everyone who has these stores. :)

    • tonya

      hey publix pals,

      lysol toilet bowl cleaner is 2/$4. i was able to print two .50/off 1 coupons at http://www.lysol.com. publix double coupons 50 cents or less…making the cleaners $1 each.

    • Heather

      Hi, can anyone please tell me what the “Kashi frozen foods booklet” is and where I can find it? Is it from Publix or the manufacturer? Thanks a bunch & happy shopping!

    • Brooke, I only see the meatballs too! I want the french toast sticks q- can anyone tell me the zip they used? Or has the print limit been reached already maybe?

    • Kristi

      Thank you, Jenny!!

    • Catherine

      I took $11 in Register Rewards across the street to my Publix yesterday (after great sales at Walgreens) and used everything I’ve learned from this site so far and got ‘upside down’ for the first time! I spent $45 and saved $61! Woo hoo!

    • Stacey

      Last week the cashier told me that they will no longer be taking Target coupons. Kroger and Food Lion yes, but not Target.

    • Carrie

      Don’t forget the $1 off Digiorno Pizza FLIP to stack!

      • Jenny


        I think the DiGiornio FLIP is expired :( Sorry.

    • Carrie

      There are also blinkies right now at Publix for $2 on any Contessa meal.

    • Renee

      Boo Hoo! I ran out to Publix last night to use up all my 75 cent Q’s for the Nabisco snack packs on sale for $1.99. Unfortunately the coupon states save on Honey Delite Bars or chewly granola bars. Guess what? Those 2 are NOT included in the $1.99 sale. They were $3.29 a box. I returned them all. What a wasted trip.

    • Has anyone used the $4 Q for the schick razors at the Goose Creek Publix? I’m going today, and want to be prepared, as that Q alone will make an overage.

      Also, Shellie (above) said she used the $4 Q and the $2 Target Q on these, and all the overage came off the bill. Why would you use both when it’s already free? Just for the overage? I’m just curious.

    • Jan

      I am with you on that one Jackie. I didn’t push it and just used the $4.00 off one giving me an overage of .60 each. If we get TOO greedy they will limit the stacking.

    • Ashley

      I am bummed that Publix doesn’t take the competitor advertised savings. I used the WD and Food Lion coupons, but they wouldn’t adjust the prices for what was in the flyer papers. Oh well.

      I was excited when I found a coupon inside my goldfish package for $1/1 V8 Fusion!!

    • Jenny
      If Daisy is $.99 each, and you have a $.50 off coupon, how would it be free?? Wouldn’t it be $.49??

    • The shick quattro worked fine for me… hopefully no one has a problem…

    • Aymie, the coupon doubles if you are outside FL to $1.

    • I am in FL go figure lol

    • wendy

      tropicana.com has 2 different $1 off coupons…one is for Tropicana
      50, the other is for regular OJ!!! That makes OJ at Publix $1.50 this week!

    • Anyone?? French Toast sticks coupon printable?? Anyone??

    • JMR

      The 50 cent Daisy coupon doubles to $1.00. The item is 99 cents so it is free.

    • Tonya

      Jackie, the Bogo Deals at publix ring up at half price, instead of one ringing up full price and the other free. That means you only have to buy one and still get the item for half price, and if you get 2 you can use a both a Man and a store coupon on each. My Publix will also deduct the full coupon amount even if it is more than the cost of the item.

    • tonya


      i clicked on link posted above for the farm rich french toast sticks and printed two and used them both…making each box 89 cents.

    • TonyaC

      Jan, I Just wanted to point out that Publix does not lose any money by allowing overage. I actually spoke to customer service at both the stores I use to make sure the policies were the same and this is what they both told me. Publix accepts competers coupons because they want our business, and they are reimbursed full value for any coupon so they are not losing any money. Also if say you used your $4.00 coupon and they did adjust it down , they would still receive the $4.00 from the manufactor, which would mean they were profiting off of the customer. Basically it is a win win situation . The manufactor wants you too use the coupons as well to encourage you to use their products, and Publix is making money not losing it, and the customer is saving so they want to shop there. One problem I do see is that some of the coupon links listed on this site are reproduced. I’m not going to mention the site they are coming from but this is going to be the reason that they stop stacking coupons and taking competetors coupons. Not too mention illegal. I didn’t even realize it until a cashier asked me about a specific Target couoon that I had used.

    • Lauren


      I’m an avid southernsavers reader and fan, and I laud you for all you do for all of us who are trying to struggle and squeeze by in these difficult times.

      I’m confused, however. I’ve posted comments/questions/tips, and written emails to Jenny, many times, but have not gotten a single response, which seems really strange. I think what I’m adding or asking is timely and relevant. I’m starting to feel like I’m invisible. Anyone out there?


    • Diane

      The Columbia Downtown Publix and the one on Harbison said that they can no longer honor either the Rite Aid or Target coupons. I talked to a manager at both stores.

    • Michelle Thomas

      Hi Cayce,

      The number I called to check on the General Mills/Publix gift card rebate is 1-800-627-6059. Sorry it took me so long to respond!

      Hope you get your rebate, too!

    • tonya

      hi lauren,

      coming through loud and clear. jenny has always been extremely punctual at responding to questions/comments from anyone/everyone since i’ve been a fan. keep trying. i know she must be very busy.

    • tonya


      just read your previous comment about a zip code(?). when i logged in there was already a zip code typed in and i didn’t change it to my own. try… 97211 maybe it will work for you.

    • Margie

      I have noticed you will post several different brand coupons to use with an item, but when I get to the register the cashier will not allow the coupon, for example the Dannnon Dan-o Nino to use toward the 6pk of yogurt. It’s not the same item so they wont allow it. this has happened on numerous products I was counting on. What am I or the cashier doing wrong, or not aware of.
      This really messes up my shopping.
      Thanks for any help

      • Jenny

        With most deals that include various types of products like the dannon yogurt. I am listing all the coupons for all of the possible items that are on sale. When go in you need to use the coupon that matches the product that you choose to get. Since the ads are vague sometimes I have to guess and just give you every coupon that is out and sometimes one of the products may not be part of the sale.

    • Jan

      TonyaC, ok now I am really confused. Are you saying that Publix is remibursed for a competitors coupon. For example on the razors, if you use the $4 off manfq and stack with the $2 off competitor q you will end up with an approx overage of $2.60.

    • Lauren

      Thanks Tonya! I have nothing but admiration for Jenny, Im thankful for SS every day!

    • tom

      where do you get the $120 savings book??? Also how does the advantage buy deals work??? Just starting out and could use your assistance…Thanks Tom

    • lynn

      where are the orange juice coupons located would love to print them thanks

    • tonyac

      Lauren, That is the way that the manager’s both explained it to me. My main point is that they are reimbursed the face value of the Coupon regardless of whether or not they “adjusts the coupon down”. I cant even remember the costs of the razors but yes even though the one 4.00 coupon puts you in overage they will accept the $2.00 target one anyways, which would give you an overage of about $2.60 and would be deducted off your balance. sounds strange I know. I’m sure that different stores do have different policies. That is why I checked with my local stores when I first started shopping there, to make sure I had all the details straight….As far as being reimbursed for the target coupon , I understood it that they were but I’m not for sure on that, Surely they benefit from it or they wouldn’t accept them. People that keep duplicating the coupons are the ones that is causing them to lose money.

    • tonyac

      Margerie, I have noticed too that all the coupons don’t always match the specific items that are on sale, but depending on your store they may or may not take them. I think a lot of it has to do with the cashier at times as well. The only problems I have really had with this was at Walgreens. The listerine sale there got me because it was only for certain kinds of listerine and the coupons I had was for the wrong kind. So Far no problems at publix.

    • tonyac – they do not get reimbursed for the target q’s or any other competitor coupon. They just want your business so they accept them because they would rather you spend $ at their store than at target. I think this is why many Publix managers are only accepting “traditional” grocery store coupons now. There are less of those out there and many are not printable in mass quantities.

    • Kim

      Has anyone seen the new green advantage buy flier? I haven’t been able to find it at either of the stores near me.

    • tonya

      has anyone ever frozen orange juice in the carton? does this work?

    • Joy

      When I go to the Farm Rich site the only coupon offered to me is the Meatballs…have I waited too late?

    • tonya

      i can no longer pull it up either joy. looks like it has run out. don’t be discouraged. my family ate them for bfast and weren’t that impressed. especially dh.

    • Nicole

      I have never posted on this site because I normally read it from work where this part is blocked. I just wanted to share my shopping experience at Publix from a week ago..
      I am usually well prepared for my shopping trip to Publix with a list (incuding cost and amount for coupons), coupons organized along with my sales ad. I was rather confident that I would come out paying about $27-$30 for my transaction but when I got the to register there was a cashier with meticulous standards on coupons and the shift mgr was bagging. She took my coupons and immediately started to separate them according to how my items were on the conveyor belt. Fine, but when she got to a coupon she had never seen before she would show it to the mgr bagging my items and confirm it was legitimate.. This did not make me so mad; only when she got to the coupons that came directly from the manufacturer – usually those coupons are printed on better paper and look VERY authenticate. I was embarrassed and started to feel like a criminal rather than someone who wants to save money for me and my family. Here’s the kicker; Silk soy was on sale for 2/$5 and so had a mfc coupon directly from the company AND the silk soy PUBLIX coupon that I cut out from the greenwise Publix magazine. Can you believe that the cashier gave those back to me and said they were Mfc coupons and I cannot use TWO mfc for the same ONE item.. I proceeded to ignore the cashier and explain to the mgr that one is a store coupon and one is a mfc coupon. The mgr got visibly frustrated with me and pointed out the since that coupon had MANUFACTURER on the heading of the coupon Although it clearly says ‘redeem at Publix… LU #5910’. It did not have a scan bar to indicate that it could be used at any other store. So instead of getting my milk for $.50 I had to pay $1.50. I still saved a ton but I really felt they were giving me misinformation.. Also, I have been using the Foodlion coupon for $3 off Kingsford charcoal since it was released as a competitor coupon, but again the MGR would not let me use it and the peelie on the charcoal for $2 off. She gave me the FL coupon back and said they are BOTH mfc and proceeded to show me that it will scan as MFC and not competitor !! URRG
      After this experience, I realize that not all of my trips to Publix will be pleasant and without worry of scrutiny. I was discouraged at the time and walked out of there feeling like I had done something wrong. I do plan to talk to the store mgr this week to clear up the soy milk deal… I hope all of you have had better luck…
      Thanks southern savers for all your research and advice!

    • Jenny
      For the GLade plugins there is also a coupon “Get a free warmer when you buy a twin pack scented refill” You get two free warmers since they are bogo! What an awesome deal!

    • Halie

      There is a $1 off three General Mills Cereals, manfr coupon, that expires on 5/16/09, though I am not sure which week it was from. I already had clipped it and it was in a big stack with others from various weeks.
      I just saw that it was a SmartSource coupon, just don’t know the week.

      this would go with the Buy 2 Get 1 on General Mills Cereal.

    • Halie

      I guess hat coupon would not actually work b/c it says save $1 when you buy three, and with the deal you are only buying two.

      I am sort of new at this so someone tell me if this would work.

    • lauren

      I’m not seeing the Pace for .50/1 – all I have in my SS is .40/2. What other coupons are around the .50/1 in the SS so I can find it?
      Thanks Jenny!!

    • Halie

      For the General Mills Buy 2 Get one Free offer with the free milk, I could only print one of the Cheerios coupons.

      Also it says (Buy 3 and use 3 coupons and get $7 for all three boxes and the milk)

      How do you get 3 coupons, there were 2 links for 2 coupons to print, but where is the third coupon?

    • I, too, had a bad experience at Publix (in Goose Creek) this week. Instead of following my instincts and waiting in a longer line for a cashier that I know is “coupon friendly”, I got in another line, with a “newbie”, who totaled out my order before scanning my coupons, and debiting my account. I do know better than to slide my card before the total, but that day I did it anyway fro some reason. She then tried to tell me that she didn’t need to scan my coupons, because the coupons came up automatically when she scanned my items. What!?! Okay, I had to give this girl a lesson on coupons that apparently her bosses didn’t. She thought the sale prices and advantage buys that show up on the receipt were “coupons” and that she didn’t have to scan mine. Supposedly another cashier “told” her this. I explained to her what coupons are, and that they come from the MANUFACTURER. So, another cashier came over, corrected her, then the bag boy took me to customer service to get my coupon amounts refunded. After waiting for about 10 minutes while they helped ONE customer, the Helper Cashier came back and got me, took me to a closed register and refunded my coupon money herself, to the tune of $25. I was so aggravated! I know new cashiers make mistakes, but in my opinion, this girl was not fully trained. This Publix has a LOT of extreme couponers too, I’ve seen and met many in there! So obviously they need to spend some time on this with new cashiers.

      I will, of course, go back to Publix. I’ll just make sure I go to “my” cashier next time! Lesson learned.

    • mary

      The back to nature printable coupon says that it may not be copied. When you print it out from the computer it of course looks copied. My store would not use it. I am not sure where this coupon is coming from, but it would not work with my store manager. They said they are cracking down on coupons lately. It all depends on who is checking you out. I have noticed teenagers are a bit more lenient, but be aware, it may not work for you.

    • Jackie
      I agree completely. Many of the cashiers are NOT well trained whatsoever, and I actually think they just say whatever comes to their mind, truth or not. I have had a similar experience with a cashier that said “we just had a meeting today in fact that we can no longer take *any* competitors coupons” I put up such a fight that she said “Ugh fine, I will just scan them this one time for you” when I got in the car I immediately called the manager and he said he’s NEVER given a meeting about thier “new policy on coupons” and in fact, he thanked me for my business and for using competitors coupon at their Publix rather than the actual store. Come to think of it, I havent seen that cashier since so I am hoping she got fired???? :)

    • Tiffani

      I was so bummed out on my visit to Publix today. My cashier would not take my RR from Walgreens, he even asked the front end manager and she wasn’t familiar with them so she also refused to let him take them. I tried to tell them that they were manufacturers coupons, but the line was backed up and I was tired of arguing. Upon getting home, I called and talked to the store manager and he confirmed that they should have taken them. But now, I’ve got to make another trip to take my receipt and coupons in to get reimbursed. Uggghh!!

    • Tracy

      I used a printed compet Q for .55 cents off Quaker Oatmeal just on Thursday this week at Publix. I thought it was a FL Q. It is on sale for $1.99 this week at Publix. I wanted to get more but now can’t find the Q. Does anyone know where it is?

      There is a coupon for a free Glade Scented Gel Warmer in the small booklet called SC Johnson, Save Over $37 today.

      Also Sargento Salad Finshers are on sale 2 for $5, I think. Used with a $1 q and the full rebate (attached to q that was in the paper)makes it a good. A customer in Publix said they are quite good.

      Some Eggo products (near the waffles) are on sale and Publix allowed me to use the FL q ($1)and a $.75 manufacturers q to make them $.25.

    • Sheila

      I went to publix tonight and was very intent on just buying the best deals, had made sure I had all my coupons in order…get to check out and was treated like an absolute criminal. The cashier was great, the front end manager was horrible. She accused me of using too many coupons on certain item, which I had not, I took every one of them out of the buggy and asked her count them in front of me. I AM writing a letter and making a phone call. I stood my ground but to be honest I am not sure I got credit for all the coupons. She started adding them up and putting in 1 lump sum. Doesn’t that keep me from getting doubles on those. I am just so upset with them. Is this how it always is??? I have only “couponed” at publix like 5 times ever. Does anyone else get treated like this?

    • Diane

      Apparently Target and Publix are cracking down on the coupons. I am very particular about my coupons. I have everything sorted, items circled in the ad, etc. I had someone at Target who stood there and read the fine print on every coupon before even allowing me to use them. Then I went to Publix and there twin must have been there as they too sat there and read every detail. After that I am not sure if I am going to bother with the coupons. I have a 16 month old who I can’t leave at home to go shopping alone and I can’t stand there for what seems to be 30 minutes while they read every coupon and treat me like I am stealing and then try to tell me they have new policies and procedures! I also had an item at Target that they miscoded on clearance and the guy wasn’t going to let me have it even after a manager came over and told him to give it to me. Seriously? Is this how it is now a days just because I am trying to save money? I will be writing to both Target and Publix over this.

    • The Leonards

      I had a terrible experience at Publix today with the Rite Aid $5 off $25 coupon. When I entered the store I asked the manager if I could use it and she said yes. During checkout I handed the coupons over in order, but of course she started from the bottom so I asked her to scan the Rite Aid q first. She looked at it as said “ohh i have to ask the manager.” After scanning ALL the q she asked the manager if it was ok and she said yes, but guess what-the computer could not accept it because my total was $14. I was so HOT.

      Any hoo, there are a few great coupons in this Sundays insert(5/3) $1/1 Tropicana, $1.50/2 expandable ziploc on sale $3/2, and $2/1 chinet lunch plates on sale for $3-makes them FREE.

    • Amy

      Did the Target CapriSun coupon for a box of 20 drinks work at Publix when thier sale was for a box of 10 drinks?

    • Emily S.

      Hi! Does anyone know if you have to have the in store coupon with you to get the free milk deal with the General Mills cereal? Thanks!

        Emily you do need the store coupon but it is in the weekly ad so grab an ad as you go into the store and you are set.

      some of the chinet plates here have a coupon for free napkins

    • lynn

      Leonards hmm am i missing somr thing if it is a 2.00 off coupon and the paper plates are 3.00 how are they free? are you stacking with another coupon?

    • lynn

      Jenny if i have a coupon for buy this item get that itam free can i use a $ off coupon on the free item?

      • Jenny

        At first I was going to say yes but then I reread your question. The Buy this get that coupon is counting at the coupon for the free item so technically no you can’t use another coupon for the free item. You could use a coupon for the item that is still full price though.

      the other day my trip to publix was interestings as the cashieralso read every detail on each and ever couponcome of my coupons were for a value more than the product so she manual typed in the coupon value to match the price when i asked her about this she said they are no longer allpwed to give overagethere were alot of people in line behind me so i chose not to deal with it then as some people in line were cranky… when i got home i called the store manager to ask about the coupon policy and to inquire i explained to him what happened with the coupons being lowered so he went and pulled acopie of my recept and matched the coupons he said that definatly was not there policy to lower the value of the coupons as they get the full coupon value back from the mf and that any overage is suppossed to be applied to the rest of the bill he also thanked me for choosing to use my coupons at there store and said when i come in he would have the amount to refund me for the amount she dummied down he was real nice and apoligetic that she had done that ……. any ways went back and got my 4.00 back from publix (he had the cashirer there that did that with the coupons) all and all i have learned if you are nice the will try to explain and acomidate you as they do seem to value the couponers who are following the rules….

      Had to write to say thank you, thank you, thank you! So proud of myself & my successful (and even profitable trip) to Publix today. Total savings was $72.50. My grand total was -0.82. They actually paid me to take 3 bags of groceries out the door! I couldn’t have done it without Southern Savers. Keep up the great work.

      Amazing to read all the stories of people having trouble using coupons at Publix. I, too, had trouble today. The cashier stood there for several minutes before ringing up my groceries scrutinzing every purchase I made: type, how many, etc. At one point she yelled across the store to another cashier and asked if they took Food Lion coupons. I was embarrassed, to say the least. She also would not give me any overage. I used the 2 J&J First Aid coupons. Because the 2 items I bought didn’t add up to $5, she said she could only use one. Last week they also told me that they don’t take Target coupons anymore. Apparently Publix feels as though they are being taken advantage of or something. Everyone is checking very dilligently. I didn’t want to make a scene so I didn’t put up too much of a fight. I still saved more than I spent. But I agree, they treat you as though you are trying to rip them off instead of a concerned shopper just trying to save money.

      From a friend who works at Publix. They are having a lot of bad couponers come through. Expired coupons, coupons for items they didn’t buy, etc. Just take a deep breath and be patient. They are going to crack down, and make errors, for a while, then everyone will relax again. If you want to make it go easier on all of us, just make sure everything is valid. If you think there’s an error, ask to speak with the store manager. I do know that they are supposed to stop taking the $5 of $$$ coupons from drugstores because in some areas they are getting flat out slammed by them.

    • lynn

      thanks jenny. for the info i like to double check to make sure i do things right with the coupons …….. thank you much for your hard work and dedication to helping everone save money and get the best deals possible

      Sorry about the error (it was way past my bedtime). The Chinet plates are $2 each and the coupon makes them FREE! The sign in the store says 2 for $4. They are going to be the 36 count lunch plates.

    • Amanda

      Has anyone in Fl used the caprisun coupons or the $4 off coupon for the razors?

    • Amanda,
      I am in Orlando. I have gotten the razors for free and the Capri Sun’s I used the newspaper coupons for the Sunrise Capri Sun’s and got them for one dollar each…..No problems at all.


      Let me know on my site if there is anything I can help you with….

    • lynn

      Amanda yes i have used the 4.00 coupons for the razors here in npr florida and the overage was applied to my rremaining stuff was a good publix trip that day as for the capri sun my publix here doesnt take target coupons good luck

    • lynn

      by the way i ended up with 14 razors for free plus overage

    • lynn

      leonards thanks for the 411 they also have peelies here for free napkins when you buy them so thats a double freebie

    • MiniMidgMom

      My store was out of Capri Sun Sunrise so they let me substitute.

      Here’s the breakdown on the buy 3 GM cereals get free milk in case you have other opportunities to use your coupons elsewhere. I lucked out and the cashier counted the free box that I got with the buy 2 select GM cereals get 1 free as one of the three I needed for the milk (the person at customer service said I had to actually buy a third box so the freebie didn’t count towards the milk).

      Here’s the math – the cereal was $4.99 a box. I had two $1/1 coupons and a $1/3 coupon. 9.98 for cereal minus $3 = 6.98 minus $2.69 for milk = $4.29 divide by 3 boxes of cereal = $1.43 a box. Only 6 cents less per box then if you bought then BOGO with a $1 coupon and bought your milk. So if this is a lean week and you don’t want to lay out that much money for cereal you might want to wait and stockpile when you have more money in the bank.

      Just an idea to make a shopping trip go more smoothly since it seems a few bad couponing apples have spoiled it for the rest of us honest ones: I greet my cashier with a smile and a hello, and before she/he begin ringing in my items, I hand them my coupons. This way if they need to scan my stuff and make sure I have all items & coupons matched, they can. I can totally understand that they need to be careful and verify coupons. After all, most people want to do their job well, right? And if someone behind you gets anxious as the cashier scans your bundle of coupons, just be wise knowing that you just earned money while they pay full price.

      I was more than prepared for Publix this time but unfortunately my preparedness still did not make a difference. I have been ‘couponing’ at Publix for the last 8 weeks with much success. I’ve use Foodlion, Whole Foods, Winn Dixie, Fresh Market and Target coupons at my location many times until recently. I had never had a problem until the last 2 weeks of shopping. I waited until Sunday (5/3) to be sure I would not need anything from the current Sunday paper. I had coupons from Target on Capri Sun, for the A& W root beer, and for some Store baby wipes (Foodlion Cu). I was told by my very nice cashier that he could NOT accept them b/c it was a COPY. I was like “How do you figure?, Were you there when printed it from the Foodlion and Target websites just 2 hours ago?” The bagger (senior cashier) went to get my ‘favorite’ (say “no” to everything) mgr. She smiled and hello ma’am good to see you again, I’m sorry we are not accepting printed competitor store coupons anymore. She went on to explain that they have experienced a lot of fraud and lost money as a result. I said well I understand and I will have to put those items back “as a result, of course.” She walked away quietly, but I still felt like they dreaded having to deal with ‘another couponer.’ It’s so sad, that in this economic time, we have to fight with retailers about saving money. I did not steal, I did not try to argue over illegitimate coupons, and I do not ever give them a reason to question my transactions..
      I, too, plan to call the corporate office and will keep a copy of the store policy with me at all times to fight for my right to save while shopping.. Isn’t it all so preposterous?
      I love couponing hope that the opportunity to save money never goes away… Thanks again Southernsavers!!!!!!!!!!

      Also, be sure to check your local competitor stores for coupons in the isles. You will be surprised what you might find coupon for to use at Publix. There is nothing wrong with grabbing a coupon or two to save for a later sale (if anyone questions you). I also get in the habit of writing to your favorite brands for a coupons. Here is what you do…
      Go to the website – find the contact us link and complete the form with your info. Mention in the comments that you want coupons and how you LOVE their brand. I have gotten MANYYYYYYY coupons this way. Some for FREE items and most do not expire until 2010. The best ones were from Fresh Express/Chiquita and Kashi..

      The Schick razors—can you use the $4 off coupon for the disposable ones? Looks like the coupon might be for the regular razors?
