Here are the deals at Publix this week starting 6/17 or 6/18. This seems like a slow week to me, but hopefully it excites someone.

    • Stacy

      Can you please post the link for the printable FL Huggies coupon?

    • Amy

      I do not see the Fisher snack coupon in any of those inserts and I even have a few papers from different markets on those dates.

    • Amy

      There is a dispenser in the produce section at Murray Landing for $1 off salad wyb 2 Keebler crackers .. great match up for this week!

    • Yay for the free Starbucks ice cream yum yum!!

    • I’m excited!

    • Thank you for the wonderful matchups! The YoPlus coupon has already disappeared from coupons.com. Also, it appears the $1 Hebrew National campaigns are over. I’m looking forward to the Morningstar deal, too. i think the burgers will be free with the $1 print and the $2/2 Target P. Love to get the healthy deals.

    • Tina

      There is a B1G1 coupon for Kraft Easy Mac in the July issue of Better Homes & Gardens.

    • Amanda C

      Margery, if you’re already a member of the first link given, it will print (I was able to print 2 this morning.) Hope this helps.

    • Lorri

      Hi Jenny – I agree with Amy, I haven’t seen a single Fisher’s coupon — there are so many dates for inserts??? I have all of the coupons from my area (greenville, SC). Did we just not get any of these.

      Thank you

    • Christina

      I don’t see the food lion DiGiorno pizza coupon.

    • Bill

      There is a Food Lion $3 off coupon for Kingsford that expires today, 6/17/09 and a $3 off coupon in the Summer is here coupon booklet. If you use both it will give you the charcoal for $2 and $6 in pork for free, making the premarinated tenderloins and charcoal about $6.

    • Kareen

      Does anyone know where the FL printable for the DiGirono is?Would really love that and am hoping that it is not a mistake, LOL!!

      Don’t have my coupons with me at the moment but I’m pretty sure i have one that was on a tear-off by the Club crackers to get free bottled water when you buy 2 boxes of crackers.

      Also, some of the bottles of Ocean Spray Cranberry juice had peel-off coupons on the label for 55 cent off Craisins!

    • Amanda

      When I printed the Starbucks coupon it is for $1 not $1.50…Is that right?

      • Jenny

        That’s funny, I printed it last night in the middle of the night and it was $1.50… I’ll change the list.

    • Amanda

      When I printed the Starbucks coupon it prints for $1 not a $1.50…I guess I ‘ll just wait on the coupon in the paper.

    • lynn

      can some one please tell me what is morning star never heard of it thanks

    • Bill, when I print that FL charcoal coupon, it expired yesterday. :( There are also $.55/1 any Sara Lee bun or bread coupons in the 5/17 RP

    • Dana

      I found the Family is its own Reward book this morning at the Publix near McAllister Square (Greenville SC)

    • lynn Morningstar is a vegetarian “meat” product. We are vegetarians and stock up when these go on sale!! veggie burgers, hot dogs, chicken nuggets, sausage patties, bacon, etc. yuummmm- so good.

    • JEB

      I am confused about the final prices on these. Are they BOGO? Wouldn’t they be cheaper than what is listed after coupon? Thanks.

    • Thanks for the great list!
      There’s also $1 off 2 Ben & Jerry’s 16 oz pints coupon in the June/July Whole Deal booklet from Whole Foods. It’s a great match with the coupon in the Yellow Advantage ad if your store considers Whole Foods a competitor.

    • Holly

      I heard that the Starbucks coupon is going back and forth between $1 and 1.50, so I guess its just luck!

      Hey Vegetarians-Does anyone know if Boca burger products are still 5/$10?
      Because there’s a $1/2 printable coupon on the kraft page, just follow the link for the honey maid graham crackers. Would make them $1.50 each.

    • Shannon in ATL

      Starbucks is going back and forth, I printed one for $1 and one for 1.50$ all on the same computer.

    • Cayce

      I printed the starbucks coupons yesterday and it let me print two $1.50 coupons and two $1.00 coupons. It switches back and forth between the two.

    • lauren

      How does the Old El Passo coupon work? Can I buy 1 pack of meat and 2 taco kits and use 2 coupons?

    • Jerri

      where can I get the Huggies $1.50 coupon from Food Lions and Digornio Pizza from Food Lions

    • Heather

      I’m so glad I got my shopping in yesterday with last weeks deals. There really isn’t much here that I use. I will pop on in and snag those razors, though!

      I have a question though, I got some coupons from albertsons for things like, 3.99 p/lb shrimp, b1g2 st louis ribs, b1g2 london broil, b1g2 pork tenderloin… will publix copy these deals as “competitor coupons”?

    • Erin

      Finally- Lucky charms!

    • Jessica

      Hey Jenny!! Thanks again for all of your fabulous help!!! I am curious, does the Cranergy Ocean Spray Coupon on Coupons.com work for the Ocean Spray Juice 2/5.00??? Didn’t know if it was an included variety. Thanks!~

    • Thanks for all you do Jenny!

      FYI to Cobb/Paulding GA folks: Found the “Family is its Own Reward” booklet in the back of the store near the Seafood and Cheese.

    • Leah

      I was able to print the hebrew national coupon from the link on the sidebar here:


      I was able to print 2 without issue.

    • dawn


      I tried that with Publix once. They would not honor the meat coupons but did honor the others. Maybe yours will. I am in Tampa.

    • wendy

      I agree with Margery about the Hebrew National coupon. The site keeps sending me in circles. First log in, then coupon, then log in, then coupon, then log in. What am I doing wrong?

    • Beth

      Has anyone found the Family Is It’s Own Reward booklet in North, AL. I just wondered cause I have not seen them at all yet. I hope we get them soon and I can get some before the coupon stealers get them all.

    • Nichole

      ok ladies!!! so @ Publix the Johnsonville Brat Patties have 35 cent coupons on them..which double and make it .70 cents!! so ultimately they end up being $1.80…

    • Georgia

      New coupon booklet at Publix.’SMART SUMMERTIME SAVINGS’ filled with over $75 in savings.A lot of good combinations store and manufacturer’s coupons too.Good luck! Jenny you are the best!

    • Melissa

      I live in NW FL and in all the Publix stores in my area, #1 and #5 do apply. Wish mine would double coupons. But, I still snag some great deals with the BOGOF and 2 coupons. I couldn’t afford Publix otherwise.

    • Elizabeth

      I have a raincheck question—we eat a LOT of Morningstar Farms products (usually priced at $3.89 a box) and I have a raincheck for 20 boxes at 50% off. If I were to cash these in this week would that make them 75% off?

      I know mathematically it would, but would Publix do that?

      I have target coupons for $2/2 and some $1 coupons, as well as a bunch of $2 off, though these say “limit one per customer” on them, so I can’t walk in with 20! Anyway, I’m just trying to decide what to do, save my raincheck or cash it in for a money maker if they’ll be less than $1 per box.

      Thanks in advance.

    • Victoria

      In the Atlanta area we did not get any Fisher coupons …

    • Juliett

      We have a free gallon of milk wyb any 3 kellogg’s cereal in the Piggly Wiggly mailer in Charleston, SC!!

    • Jennifer

      Elizabeth, I know at our Publix, they would either honor 50% off of the regular price OR BOGO, which really are the same thing, but NOT both. You could always check YMMV :)

    • MiniMidgMom

      We’re not vegetarians but my toddlers love Morningstar Farm products – they’re a real quick easy meal for me to make them, I feel good that they are getting something other than mac and cheese, and it’s awesome to get a deal!

    • Am I misunderstanding the taco deal? The advantage coupons reads $1 off of beef when you buy the el paso kit. So you’ll have to buy 2 beef’s to use the 2 coupons, right?


    • Sharon

      I was also able to print Starbucks ice cream coupons at 1 and 1.50. Sweet! I live 2 miles from Publix. Is 9 PM too late to go buy ice cream ? : )

    • lynn

      our publix closes at 9.pm so lol yes it would be for me hope the ice cream is as good as their coffee drink

    • Mina

      The coupons that read $1 off beef WYB the tacos or $ off bananas WYB Cheerios, etc attach to the beef and bananas and such. So, if you get two taco kits, you are expected to purchase 2 pkgs of beef in order to use them. Of course, you may get a really nice CS person who is willing to work around that, but if you are counting pennies and don’t want any surprises, expect to that the cashier will use only one per item purchased.

    • Jerri

      Where can I go to get the printiable for the Food Lion Coupon for the Digiorno Pizza and Huggies can anyone help me please, also I been trying to print my Hebrew National Hot dog coupon I sign up and click on the coupon but it won’t print. Thank you for your help.

    • Kelly

      Just had to share. I thought it was a slow week at Publix too until I found out about the Morning Star on sale. I ended up with a savings of $248 and spent $61. That has been my best trip by far. I got 68 boxes of Morning Star using the Target coupon and had two manufacturer coupons that I stacked. I also got 11 Razors, 3 boxes of the Yo-plus yogurt, and had a rain check for 4 boxes of Crystal light. I am so excited I feel like framing my receipt (or at least hanging it on the fridge):)

    • Hannah

      Wow Kelly! How did you get so many coupons???

    • Elizabeth

      Kelly, the manuf. coupons you stacked, what were they? How many did you have? I have probably 30 of the $2 off but mine say (LIMIT: one per customer) so I certainly can’t take them all in and use at once. I have’nt seen many $1 off that aren’t expired. Could you tell me specifically how you did this deal, I need it!!

    • Amanda

      All the effort to print the Starbucks coupons and my Publix doesn’t have them on sale. (Lexington, SC). Also I tried to use a Target coupon for Chex Mix at Publix and they said that they do not accept Target coupons b/c they are not a direct competitor. Has anyone else had this problem? Also last weeks specials at Bi-Lo were awesome and out of the 7 things I went there to get I had to get rainchecks for 5 of them? Ia m new at this so is that normal for Bi-Lo?

      • Jenny


        Publix’s in our area (Columbia region) only accept grocery store competitor coupons :( For the Starbucks Ice Cream it is in our ad so if they did not have it marked or rang up wrong you will still get the sale price (plus you should get 1 Free for their price guarantee).

        For Bi-Lo you are going to end with with numerous rainchecks. They are never stocked for the big sales.

    • Amanda

      Jenny…Thanks for all you do for us!!! I haven’t gone to Publix I was just cruising the flyer. Now I see Starbucks listed under the B&J ice cream ad. I wonder if I can use my Starbucks gift card to buy the ice cream?? Just joking =) I am still waiting on a Columbia class!!!

      Oh I know Joint Juice was on sale at Bi-Lo last week but I have rainchecks for it and discovered if you go to the Joint Juice website they will send you a B1G1F coupon once a week for the next month if you sign up. The one in paper was for 1 bottle but the one from their website you can use on the cases of it. Just FYI

    • Kris

      I was in Publix yesterday and they have $1 off blinkie coupons for Crystal Springs water. It’s on sale in the ATL area for $3.99 for a case (before coupon).

    • Misty

      The Publix’s in the Paulding county (Georgia) area are not taking competitor coupons any longer !!!

    • Becca

      Anybody know when chicken breasts are going on sale again? The price is killing me and I’m through my stock!

    • lynn

      amanda……………. i have coupons for the joint juice and have been wanting to try it could you tall me how is it and about how much does it cost and where at the store do you find it? thanks

    • Tiffany

      I went in for the huggies and was told that the policy had changed. I couldn’t use the $2 off ad coupon with the food lion coupon. I also had a $6 manufacturer’s q if that made a difference.

      The manager said it was a new policy because the competitor’s coupons are “technically store coupons” also.

      I have noticed that a lot of other couponers in the area are starting to complain about other area publix’s being very tough with taking q’s. :( I hope it doesn’t become too hard to shop at my beloved Publix!!!!

    • Beverley

      Here is a publix coupon I just got from Huggies maybe someone else can use it too http://www.publixcampaigns.com/baby/LU1274.html

    • Teresa

      OK…so just got back from Publix and the Trolley Road store in Summreville does not have the starbucks ice cream on sale..also apparently they have new coupon rules. I wasn’t able to give the cashier my coupons in the very begining..(I normally give them first thing..but it was hectic this time) so I got a 5 min. lecture on why they need them first…Then she said they will not double coupons that say “do not double”..which I don’t understand b/c the manufacturer doesn’t pay that..the store does to get u to shop there..but ok..whatever…The only positive thing she said was that they now give overage whereas before they did not. SO just FYI for anyone that shops at that store!

    • Esmelda

      For those in the Gainesville, FL area still looking for the “Family is its Own Reward” booklet: I stumbled upon them at the Publix on the corner of 34th Street and University Ave. They’re in the front of the store at a big display of Lipton Tea and Ragu Sauce.

    • Amanda

      Lynn….I don’t drink it. I am getting it for my father in law. He seems to like it. I will ask my father in law about it but I remember him saying it taste a little like Gatorade. I found it at BiLo on the water aisle on the very top. I am not sure of the cost but want to say that it is around 4 bucks. I have 2 rainchecks for the B1G1F at Bi Lo last week plus 4- $1 off couons and now 2 B1G1F coupons. I hope it works out to cost me next to nothing.

      Where did you see the Starbucks ice cream bogo? I cant find it on my ad. Thanks.

    • Nevermind it was hidden under the Ben and Jerrys!

    • lynn

      thank you amanda sounds like a good deal you have in the works we only have publix and win dixie here to chose from ….

    • Wendy

      Publix in New Hope (GA) is still taking Food Lion, Target and Kroger coupons, just no more RiteAid or Walgreens as of 06/20/09. That $5/25 RiteAid coupon was SO good while it lasted:)

    • lynn

      ok npr florida shoppers went to publix was told that none of the stores in our town have the ritz crackerfuls that the stores in our area should start getting them in tommrow and should be on the shelves by sunday was told they are a new product thats why no one had it yet

    • Tiffany

      Teresa…same store that I couldn’t use the FL coupons at today! One of their new policies is no comps stacked with their store coupons. Had to do the whole all the coupons first thing too, when I normally just sit them on the item that I am purchasing to make it easier on them. I’m also hearing the same about the stores in Mount Pleasant and Goose Creek.

    • Dawn

      I am SOOO excited about this. Patiently waiting on the sunday paper..but when I looked at the actual ad for Publix for the week of 6/18-6/24, I can’t find that they have this BOGO..HELP!!!

      Starbucks Ice Cream 16 oz, at $3.79
      -$1.50or $1 off Starbucks Ice Cream printable (makes it .39¢ ea)
      -$2 off Starbucks Ice Cream SS 6/21 (makes ir FREE plus overage)

    • Dawn

      NEVER MIND… I found them :)

    • Michaelene

      I am excited to say that I finally found the “Family Is It’s Own Reward” coupon booklet at my Publix in Loganville, GA!! Yea!

    • Cheri

      On the Del Monte buy 2 get 1 free deal. Can I use 2 or 3 coupons?

    • Allison

      Tiffany and Teresa, I shop at the Goose Creek Publix and the cashier today told me she couldn’t double a coupon that said “do not double.” I thought that was weird, too. However, I have only been at this for a month, and the cashier was all excited that I got $47 of stuff for $5! She called me a “great coupon shopper!”

    • Allison

      BTW, does anyone know if the Publix in Goose Creek, SC takes military coupons as competitors?

      (GC Publix had S’bucks ice cream on sale today.)

      And, yes, I had to get a few rainchecks this week at the Bi-Lo in Summerville, also.

    • Tiffany, I have never been able to use a competitor coupon with a store coupon. My understanding is that this is Publix’ corporate policy. One manuq and one store coupon per item. A competitor coupon is considered a store coupon, so one or the other.

    • employee

      I posted this on a previous Publix savings post, but I thought it would get read here instead of there. I don’t know if it answers any questions posed here, but maybe it will answer any lingering ones.

      I am also a cashier at Publix, not Customer Service or management, simply a cashier. Personally, I’ve never had a customer yell at me, but many talk down to cashiers because they refuse coupons. The honest reasons cashiers may not seem thrilled with your coupon purchases are: 1. more and more, management is breathing down our necks about coupons. A newsletter to cashiers from my store this week threatened possible termination from the store if our tills were short because of coupons. Coupons, especially competitor coupons, are actually costing the store a lot of money. 2. A lot of couponers assume they are right about the coupon simply because of what a website, not just this one, may say. The truth is, like Jenny said about stores in Florida, every store has a different policy. Corporate has almost no regulations about coupons in Publix, so management must make one that keeps the store from losing money and keeps you saving enough money to keep you coming back. 3. Honestly, though it sounds lazy and like poor customer service, sometimes at the end of a long day, a stack of coupons looming before us is the last thing we want to see. You guys know how much time and effort you put into matching coupons with the sale items. We’re expected to do this in a timely manner and with a happy face. As previously stated, we love to see you save the money, but it’s simply a pain to scrutinize every little slip of paper like our stores require that we do. So just be friendly; couponers are often some of the most friendly customers. Many don’t take the time to talk even when spoken to, but almost every customer with many coupons is willing to make small talk. Just as customers often brighten my day, I do my best to brighten yours.

      We don’t double coupons that say DO NOT DOUBLE because we’re told not to. That’s the bottom line. Ask your local manager; don’t get upset with the cashier. We’re at the bottom of the totem pole. =)

      I read nearly every comment on this post, and it makes me happy that so many of you are happy with our stores. However, it makes me upset that all we hear is negative feedback! Many of you mention your favorite cashier. Shoot an email to corporate and mention their name and store. Heck, they might get a pat on the back, a free sub combo, or even a raise because of it. If we get customer feedback, the cashiers who deserve praise receive it and the cashiers who don’t, well, don’t. Give names on here if you want. We don’t mind, and that way, other couponers will know who is coupon-friendly and who is not.

      About B3G1 on items that are already B1G1, I always give the customer the 50% price for free. The way we are told to ring up free items is to do a price check on the item then take that much off. If the price is 1.50, it wouldn’t be right to give 3.00 off. That’s my logic anyway. Once again, if you disagree, take it up with a manager. We’ll do whatever you need to make you happy. That’s why we have signs that say “We will never knowingly disappoint you.” That means tell someone who can fix it!

    • samea

      i found $1.oo off ben & jerry Q at my 7-11 gas station…ladies stop by any gas station and check out the freezer sections for all sorts of coupons..starbucks, ice cream, energy drinks..

    • Hannah

      I live in Tampa and I WAS able to use the Albertson’s coupons!!! Spent: $138, Saved: $208!!!

    • Cheryl

      What is the best link to get to Target coupons? Thanks!

    • Hannah

      My Publix (Tampa) took the Albertson’s coupons without a problem. Unfortunately, they didn’t have any St. Louis style ribs, so I could only get the pork loins and London broils. Between that and my other coupons, I spent $135 and saved $208!!! If I had an extra freezer, I’d go back for more!

    • Kim

      Grrrrrrrr Anyone else having trouble with the Betty Crocker website? I kept getting an error message that said sorry we are having issues processing your info try again later so I did. Then since I tried twice the coupons were gone!!!!! I emailed them so maybe they will send me something nice.

    • Angela

      I went to the Publix in West Ashley / Charleston, SC. For the 1st time they really gave me a hard time with the coupons. I had a $10 of $40 purchase from Piggly Wiggly and a $10 of $50 purchase from Harris Teeter. First, the cashier asked his supervisor about these, and she said they would only take coupons that are $5 in value or less. (I did not tell her that he had already scanned the $6 off pork coupon). I told her I had used similar coupons at that store in the past, so she went to ask her manager. She came back and told me I could only use one of the 2 coupons. And then she told the cashier to come get her if anyone else tried to use these coupons. She made it seem like I was trying to rip them off or something. If their policy is to honor competitor coupons, I think they should do so without making it such a big deal… In the end I paid $63 and saved $81, but after such an unpleasant experience, I’m thinking I’ll be going to Harris Teeter next week instead.

    • Couponers Are Customers!

      Employee (#89)

      This statement disturbs me…. “Honestly, though it sounds lazy and like poor customer service, sometimes at the end of a long day, a stack of coupons looming before us is the last thing we want to see.”

      The economy is not robust and my thoughts are that the last thing you should want to see is no customers (and couponers are customers). Let’s be nice to one another and of course nobody wants to get anyone fired. We just want to know what the rules are so we can follow them.

    • Pam

      Can you use the clip-free coupons in the CVS flier at Publix??
      Thanks for all the great info!!! Pam

    • Kelly

      Elizabeth and Hannah

      My Publix took all the Target coupons for Morningstar in the same transaction (Ooltewah,TN). I live in a very big vegetarian community so when Morningstar stuff goes on sale at Publix it is a big deal. They said they have been flooded with the Target coupons for Morningstar, but they said they don’t mind.I have been telling everyone I know. Hope that helped.

    • Candy

      Can someone please tell me where in Publix (Chas,SC) that you can find the Family … Reward, Unilever, etc. books w/coupons? I’m new to this and I’ve seen so many references to these resources and when I went to the Publix in N.Chas they said they didn’t have these and acted like they didn’t know what I was talking about.

      I have really enjoyed and learned (still learning!) so much from all of you and your comments! Thanks so much!

    • Amanda

      So I had an interesting trip to Publix today. I live in Valrico,Fl and new to this coupon thing. Only have been doing it for like 3 months. Today I spen $73 and saved $51. Yeah! Now to get on with my story: I had a coupon I printed off line for a free box of meaty bone biscuits when you buy another meaty bone product. The lady took out a folder and she had to packets of copies of counter fit coupons. She had to go through both stacks to make sure mine wasnt one. She asked the manager and he said to take it. Also the fruit chiller coupons and some of the other ones I printed off line wouldnt scan but she took them anyways. In the long run I was happy and cashier was really nice. I had people in my line and the one next to me asking what website I used. I gladly told them southernsavers. They were all writing it down. Just wanted to let everyone know about the possible counter fit coupons out there.

    • Angela W

      Samea- great idea about the gas stations!
      Georgia- what location and what part of the store did you find the coupon booket for Unilever? Still looking…in Columbia…

    • Christina Albea

      There are peelies for a FREE package of Old El Paso Seasoning wyb 2 Old El Paso products (exp. 2/27/10) from sometime int he last few months in my coupon box.

    • JEB

      I asked at the Lexington Publix about the Family is its Own Reward booklet, and they either don’t have it or have not received it…or act like they have not heard of it…any one found it in Columbia area yet?

    • Elizabeth

      Anyone know how often the Bertolli sauce goes B1G1? I FINALLY found some Family Is It’s Own Rewards books just today!!!

    • I just found a Hungry Man printable- anyone know if the XXL sandwiches are included in the B1G1 “Dinners”?

    • momof2

      FINALLY!!!!!! I found the Family is its own reward booklet today. All the ones in Duncan, SC were gone so I had to go to Greenville, SC to get one.

    • Georgia

      Angela W ,the booklet i found is actually not for unilever products it has some great q`s like for this week $1 off danimals crush cup.It was on the spinner where the weekly ad is located.Other good q`s $1 off Sara Lee Sweet Goods,$1 off Fresh Express Bagged Salad,$2(manufacturers) off Raid or Off product which can be conbined with $2 store q from the yellow advantage booklet,$2(store q)off Listerine product and many more great q`s.Good luck once again!

    • Pat

      I was finally able to get my Family is its own reward booklet. There was a display with different UNILEVER product on it–rather large–they were just in little pockets attached to the display. It was a four sided display and it said FAMILY IS ITS OWN REWARD.

      I am in Lithia springs, GA Store off LEE?FAIRBURN, between pharmacy and bakery.

      Sorry for the cap errors, I am being lazy tonight.

    • Kim

      Hey I am in Acworth GA and my Publix did not have the Starbucks Ice Cream BOGO. Has anyone in Cobb County found it BOGO?

      EMPLOYEE Thanks for your input. I am sure that a bunch of coupons can be a big pain in the rump so I always try and make it easy on my cashiers….I put the things I have coupons for free for at the end and put the coupon on the item …. that way they don’t have to scroll through the reciept to find the price. Also if there is a stipulation such as free up to 2.00 I make sure and point it out to them…. I don’t want to rip the store off. The cashiers always seem to appreciate my helpfulness and today my cashier thanked me quite profusly! I will have to look up his name and email corporate because he was very nice!

    • Jill

      Where in Greenville has anyone found the Family is it’s own reward booklets??? I have looked at Wade Hampton, McBee Station, and Furman… do they still have them anywhere????

    • employee

      Not what I meant at all! We (most of us anyway) love having customers! The after work rush is always great. I said the coupons, not the customer, is the last thing we want to see. This is not because of the customer saving money, it’s because of the grief we’re almost required to give you over the coupons.
      Kim, you seem like you have a lot of experience and/or common sense with coupons. Perfect customer for us! I’m always quite happy also if I ask the customer, if the coupon is not with the free item, how much the price was and they actually know.

    • employee

      Elizabeth #51
      Even if the cashier was not paying enough attention to catch this, you’re not really supposed to do it. The deal you have the rain check for is BOGO with the regular price, and that’s what they’re already marked down to. The rain check is saying, essentially, you get the price that they are right now. Save it for when there’s no sale.

    • Jenna

      Jenny, Lori, and Amy,

      The coupon inserst are changing how they do things. Therefore If I live in TN I might get a diffrent Smart Source , Red Plum or Pand G tnan say if you live in Flrida, for right now they are not that diffrent but they are changing , so that the communications start breaking down and some of this grocery game gets cut off.
      Personally I love the communications the friendships and the deals. However, this is what is coming. Just want to let you know why there is some confusion over the inserts.

    • Hey Jenny
      I wanted to ask if you know of any Lactaid coupons?? Publix has them on their savings and I would love to stock up as hubby and I eat them!! Thanks!

    • Christy J

      Angela (95)

      I live in Charleston also, and I always go to the James Island Publix. The customer service is fantastic and they are excellent with coupons. Most of the cashiers get just as excited as I do. Of course this has taken months of interaction, but I always go there with my coupons organized, free 1st, competitor 2nd and then the ones that will scan. I have never had a problem. Hope this helps!

    • I went to Publix yesterday and the manager had such a belittling attitude when I asked about using Albertson’s coupons that I actually left the store empty handed and feeling very embarrassed. I guess Publix’s statement on honoring all competitor’s coupons except pharmacy is not completely true…..I have shopped at Publix for decades and this was my very first bad experience, ever.

    • Tiffani

      There is a new Target coupon for $.50/1 Duncan Hines baking product, will work great for the BOGO Duncan Hines cake mix or brownies.

    • Melinda

      I couldnt find the Fisher Snack Mix coupon either

    • Faye

      Hello Everyone,
      I purchased the BOGO starbucks ice cream at Publix today with a $2 coupon for both (in today’s paper). The price was -.20 each. Amazing! I love this stuff! I purchase two Starbucks ice cream, a bag of fries and got the penny item for $2.79. My husband is starting to get this addiction.
      Take care!

    • Faye

      I live in Marietta and shop at the Woodlawn Commons Publix. Got the starbucks ice cream there.

    • tonya

      i have these two manufacturer’s coupons…

      “FREE van camps pork and beans wyb 2 van camps pork and beans 15 oz.”
      “save 30 cents on any THREE cans of van camp beans.”

      my question is…can i use these two manufacturer’s coupons together if i buy three cans total?

    • Tracie


      I have (5)$1 Coupons for one FREE 5.5 oz can of Purina Mighty Dog any variety (up to $1 value) that Expires on 8/3/09. I would like to swap these for the (2) Schick $4 off Razor & Refill coupons (SS 6/14). Contact me @ mcconaghey@aol.com if you are interested.

      Please put Mighty for Schick on the subject line so I can recognize the email in case it gets sent to my spam folder.

    • So excited to get my inserts today. Ran to Publix for my free Starbucks ice cream- and it’s not on sale. I’m going to have to start double-checking on publix.com for my local area. :(

    • Heather

      My publix was not doing the b1g1 starbucks. They made a big deal promoting the ben and jerrys and even said where to get the $1/2 coupon. I still saved $36 and spent $31! I love ben and jerrys.

    • Christine

      I went to Publix this evening and found some great coupon books! Family is it’s own reward is finally available in Augusta GA. At customer service they also gave me a coupon book called “Savings for all seasons, pet tips, coupons and more”. There’s $100.00 worth of store coupons inside. It almost makes me wish I had a pet(I took it before I realized it was only pet coupons). Finally, the BOGO mini wheat cereal has $5 worth of assorted coupons in each specially marked box! I’ve already planned another trip for tomorrow to use a bunch of these coupons before this weeks sales end.

    • All the Publix’s here in Columbia, SC have the B1G1 Starbucks Icecream. Its in small print on the B&J’s tag on the freezer door. Picked up two today with the $1.50 printable!

    • Valerie

      did anyone in Greenville, SC find the Starbuck’s coupon in the SUnday paper? I keep looking and can’t find it…

    • Tricia

      I got the new Target Q for .50 off cake mix – good deal! Also Alexia frozen potatoes (organic, and my family loves them) are on sale for $2.79, with a $1/1 Q in last week’s paper, and Target has a new Q out for $1 off Hillshire Farms Deli slice lunch meat, on sale 2/$7. I didn’t see the Starbuck’s Q in the paper, though. My Publix manager told me that the coupon policies were set by the District Manager, so the store really doesn’t have a lot of say in them. I have discovered, though, that it’s better to make a couple of trips if you have a lot of Q’s. The big scores, usually over $50 in coupons, cause a lot more problems for everyone because the CSM has to input them by hand and override the computer each time. They’re grumpier, you’re grumpier, the three customers behind you are homicidal, and you end up having to defend coupons they normally would take, no problem.

    • Tracie


      I have (7) Coupons for a FREE box of Wheat Thins wyb Ritz Crackers (Exp: 9/6/09) up to $3.49 value. I would like to swap them for as many of the BOGO Schick Disposable Razor coupons (SS 6/21) that you can have.

      Contact me @ mcconaghey@aol.com if you are interested.
      Please put “7Wheat for BOGOSchick” on the subject line that I can reference this offer.

    • To those who are having trouble with the bogo starbucks…
      At my store, it actually wasnt listed not even on the freezer door. There were signs everywhere for the Ben and Jerrys but the Starbucks ice cream was right next to it.
      I grabbed 4 hoping they would be since it said so in the flyer.
      They rang up bogo. I live in FL so I used 4 $2 off coupons so they all rang up free plus I got $.21 overage! You might want to grab some and do a price check at CS. Good luck.

    • Tonya
      I am almost positive you can do that.
      You are physically getting three so I dont see how that would be a problem… Let me know how it works out!

    • –Thanks Amanda–Now I see Starbucks listed under the B&J ice cream ad too.
      –Thanks Jenny–I didn’t know that Publix would give a free item if they ring up wrong and the item is in the ad.
      –I didn’t find any Starbucks coupons in our newspaper here in Greenville, SC
      –Fisher’s coupons–I didn’t have any in my paper in Greenville, SC but my mom in Iowa sent me all of her Fisher coupons.

    • lynn

      did any one in florida get the fisher coupons? i coulgnt fin it in the st pete or tampa trib if you havee found it please let me know where thanks

    • Lauren

      I’m in CHarleston, SC and don’t have the Fisher or the Starbucks either. Maybe it’s not in SC this week? Urgh…. I really wanted those. :)

    • When trying to print the -$1 off any Morningstar product I received the message, “Sorry, you have already printed the number of coupons you are allowed” and I hadn’t printed any! What’s up? Have they reached their limit or is something wrong on my end? Morningstar is the loser because I won’t make the purchase without a coupon.

    • Denise

      Went to Publix here in my town in Ga and they didnt have the Starbucks Ice Cream BOGO either.

    • ET

      I am in metro ATL and my AJC didn’t have the Fisher coupon, but I did get the Starbucks coupon. The sign on the freezer door mentioned the Starbucks in small writing under the big print for B&J. I got a raincheck for the flavor I was wanting since they were out and the lady at the service desk didn’t know it was on sale. I had to show it to her under the B&J in the ad. She was very polite about it. In fact, she was excited because she was wanting to try some.

    • I am excited about the deals – especially with the Children’s Miracle Network coupons!



    • Shelley

      I’m confused. I’m new to this, but how does the Starbucks ice cream end up being free when it normally costs $3.69 and the coupon is only for $2 off? Can someone please explain? I see this on several of the deals and I know I’m just missing something.

    • Shelley

      Nevermind….just realized that those were the BOGO deals! lol!

    • I love all of you!! Thank you so much for letting me know about the “small print” Starbucks BOGO!!!

    • Marianne

      I hope I’m not repeating anyone (I just skimmed the replies) but through today or tomorrow (depending on your Publix week) you can get free Danimals yogurt. In the new yellow Smart Summertime Savings book in Publix there are $1/1 coupons and they are now BOGO $2. I got 8 yesterday, my kids love them, so I’m going back for more free yogurt today.

      For the Silk Deal, there’s also a $1 off 1/2 gallon in the front of the Publix Greenwise magazine. Combined with the $1.25/2 makes them $1.47 ea!

      How do you get the All you magazine? I always see coupons listed but have no clue how to sign up for it. Thanks.

        On the top of the page there is a link to All You and you can sign up right here on Southern Savers!

    • kikil

      Help!?! I do not understand how you come up with some of these prices.
      For example, on the Publix site you mentioned that if you bought Hebrew National hot dogs at 4.99 and had a $1 coupon that this price would be 1.49. How is this possible? I would really like to understand!

    • Betsy

      Just found a $.50 off Duncan Hines baking product from Target through HotCouponWorld. Will go very nicely with the BOGO items that are still good at my store through tomorrow!!

    • lynn

      ok for my florida npr neighbors sweet bay home ad has a coupon for free milk with the purchase of 3 kelloggs cereal will go nicely with new ad or if you get the carnation deal in the yellow flyer

    • The coupons that do not have an experiation date, Free Reynolds Wrap Heavy Duty Aluminum Foil 50 Sq. ft. is counterfeit as well as Kraft Velveeta Cheese. Sorry.

    • Mary

      I went to Publix tonight and they told me Starbuck’s Ice Cream was not on sale, and there was no sale sign. I know I am not going crazy because everything else that was supposed to be on sale, was. Did anyone else have this happen?

    • Mary

      Nevermind, I saw the answer!! Thanks!

    • Kikil:

      To answer your question, the hot dogs are bogo, or 2 for $4.99.
      You would then use (2) $1.00 off coupons, now making them two for $2.99 or $1.49 each…
      Do you understand??

    • Laurie

      Thanks Jenny. I will sign up now!

    • The Kraft rebate. Copy I printed from web says the 4 items must be different. Noticed when you showed the deal by purchasing bbq sause (4) and gift card the products were the same. Have I missed something or is there a different rebate form I can print?
      Your site is awesome. Thanks and blessings.
