    • Lara

      I don’t see the Snapple coupon in my July All You. Am I missing it? I do have one however, from a home mailer, $1 off of 1 six-pack. Thanks again, Jenny, for all you do.

    • Alison V.

      I highly recommend the Rainier cherries! I got some last week and they were so yummy! Back in WA state, we used to get them at the Pike’s Place Market and they were the sizes of plums!
      Thanks for all your hard work Jenny!

    • Brandi

      You can print a .75 q on Alexia’s website.


      This coupon is really for frozen potatoes.

    • I think the dates are wrong. I was a little confused for a while :)

    • Catherine

      Is the band-aid deal still going this week? Or was that a BOGO last week?

    • Julia

      I just printed the Purina Brand Cat Food coupon and it was for $3.50 :-)

    • Samantha #2

      I also have a FLIP for $2 off beef or chicken when you buy two Lawry’s marinades. Not sure where I got it, but it says it expires Dec 1, 2009… I think it was with some other FLIPs that expired on 7/7.

    • Ranier cherries are great! They were 4.99 yesterday, but that was last week’s B1G1, so not sure what this week’s price is. This was Montgomery, AL pricing.

    • lynn

      use zip codde 84653 to get a 75 cent coupon off any gallon of milk and a 75 cent coupon off any 4 yougurts and 75 cents off any 2 pounds of cheese dont see milk coupons much so hurry before print limit is reached gla

      **Jenny Here**
      These coupons will only be reimbursed if used in Utah or Idaho. They will scan at any store, but please only use them if you live in those states.

    • Catherine

      which website are the milk and cheese coupons on that you mentioned above?

    • D.W.

    • Has anyone done the Kraft/Publix rebate yet??
      This is my first time and I had a ? and no one has the answer yet but hopefully someone can help…
      I am planning on going to Publix later today (in FL this is the last day for last weeks ad) and I am only planning on spending around $25 or so.
      I am going to buy 4 Kraft items : 1 Kraft shredded cheese, 1 Kraft parmesan cheese, and 2 flavors of Jello pudding.
      I was just in Publix a few days ago and DID NOT buy any Kraft items, but spent $30.
      Can I combine these two receipts (which will total over $50) even if only one of my receipts has the Kraft items?
      Thanks in advance!

      • Jenny


        You can combine all Publix receipts during the rebate period whether they have Kraft products or not in the transaction.

    • lynn

      is any one eles having trouble printing the 8 oclock coffee?

    • lynn

      sorry coupons.com

    • sarah

      The coupons for the milk and cheese say that it is to be used only on the purchase of Dairy Products sold in ID & UT…just a heads up for anyone going to print them.

    • Marie

      Hi– I know the Mangoes in my area are usually $1.29 each. I am in Northern AL.

    • Michelle in Georgia

      Aymie…yes, as long as the other receipt has 4 Kraft items.

    • Jana

      I really wanted to do the $3 off $10 in deli purchases again to get another rotisserie chicken meal deal, but the link doesn’t take me there anymore. Is it no longer available?

    • Allison

      for those of you in NE ATL – the Publix at McGiness/PIB – will not take Target or RiteAid coupons………. i left ALL my items and walked out – and went a few miles away to my fav publix that walways takes them…………..

    • lynn

      Remember to turn yourpop up blocker off to print coupons some of them will not print with pop up blocker on silly me thats what was wrong when i tried to print the coffee coupons

    • Brandi


      This coupon is really for frozen potatoes.

      — Sorry :-( Didn’t read it carefully. Now I’m bummed.

    • Heather

      In the July All You Mag there is a coupon for Buy 2 Get 1 free lein cuisine, can I use that with another $1/3 coupon and only get 3 all together? Does that make sense?

    • Emily

      Allison, email that publix’s manager, I’m sure they will start taking competitor’s coupons. I had a similar experience in Cumming and they weren’t aware of the issue!

    • Tiffany

      Thanks for the milk coupon lead. I got mine.

    • Amy

      The manager at my Publix gave me trouble over the Chef Boyardee coupons. She would only value the coupons at $.85 rather than $1 because the price of the product was only $.85. I tried to “reason gently” with her, but she wouldn’t budge. Is this something I should call corprate about or just leave alone? Also, anyone in the Greenville, SC area know which Publix carry the “bonus” booklets? I usually go to the one on Wade Hampton in Taylors, but they only ever carry the yellow and green flyers.

    • Krista

      Jenny, I just want to say thank you SO much for all of the hard work you do!! :-) I wouldn’t be saving a ton of money without you!

    • Donna

      Emily, which Publix do you shop at and what competitor Q’s will they take? I am in Cumming too and it is really hit or miss with competitors Q’s. They do always take Target Q, but sometimes not the other ones.

    • Rebecca

      Can someone please answer a question for me? Let’s say an item is B1G1 so I pick up two of the item. If I have a manufacturer’s coupon that is $1/2, does that count as my manufacturer’s coupon for both items or can I still use another one?


    • Emily

      Sorry if anyone has addressed this already.

      For the Kellogg’s Fuel for School Rebate – Does everything have to be on the same receipt for that rebate?

      **Jenny here**
      For the Kellogg’s Rebate all items do have to be purchased together. The Kraft rebate is the one that can purchased separately.

    • Michelle

      Quick question! So do I have to clip the coupon for the $2 off Similac or does it automatically come off at check out?? Thx!

      • Jenny


        You do need to clip the coupon for the similac out of the weekly ad.

    • Hi – Just wanted to let everyone know that the Hot Shot coupons from the All You magazines for $1.50 are not doubling at HT in Charleston. I asked a manager and she said that they will not and she would not override it. Also, the cost of the Hot Shot here is $3.99, not $2.99. Thanks!

    • Kim

      I picked up on the the Yellow Advantage books at Publix yesterday and clipped the coupons out. I just noticed that they did not have a bar code on them…can I used them at a store other than Publix???

    • Shelley

      At the gas station today, I saw a tearpad near the gatorades (64oz), that said id you buy two you get a free bag of doritos- nice deal since both are on sale at publix this week. It was a mfs q so publix should take it. check it out next time you stop by the gas station.

    • Carol L


      If I have an B1G1 coupon Lyson neutral air spray and a $1.50 off one can I use these two coupons togeter.

      • Jenny

        You can use them both if you buy 2.

    • Tarin

      Amy (25), the Publix at the Parkway (Thornblade) has nice managers who, if you ask sweetly, will look behind the counter for the latest coupon booklets. In the past, I’ve had good success at Pelham Rd also, but haven’t been there in awhile.

    • Amy

      I can’t get the snapple coupon. Not in All you. Also, Keebler coupon is not printing ?

    • Katie

      I have a question on the Guiding Stars Food Lion printable coupon can you use these at Publix- and will they know what this is for? Thanks

    • Michelle

      So Athens, AL Publix pulled a new one on me today and I want to see if anyone else has run into this.

      I needed to buy Similac and I have been waiting on a Publix store coupon so I could stack (and it came out today). I have veriried with my store on numerous ocassions that they stack a man. coupon, store coupon and comp coupon. So I had the following:

      1 man coupon for $5 off
      1 comp coupon for $3 off (from Food Lion)
      1 Publix store coupon for $2 off

      They refused to take both the Publix store coupon and the Food Lion store coupon saying they were essentially the same thing…both store coupons.

      So when I got home, I called and asked if they consider Food Lion coupons a “competitor” coupon. Yes. I also verified that they stack coupons. But when I asked why they didn’t take both the food lion adn the publix they said again “they are both store coupons.” If that is the case, then they really do not consider food lion a competitor, right? I wish I would have re-asked that question. I asked if this was a new policy and was told “no, it has always been that way.”

      I have done this same scenario SO MANY TIMES….Five times alone in this past week for Nestle Good Start Formula. If a Publix employee reads this, please explain this to me.

    • Heather

      I have a question… The Kraft Salad Dressing is BOGO. I have several $1.50/1 Q’s to use. (makes them free plus .01 overage) THEN I have Save $2 off meat WYB 2 Kraft products. SO, this is a Q for meat. NOW…can I also use a $1 off any produce item WYB 2 Kraft Salad Dressings? Is this SUPER STACKING? And is this legal since the 2 extra coupons are for other products but considering all the kraft is the “WYB 2 Kraft…”??

      See what I’m asking? Has anyone tried this before? Because I’m buying the salad dressing would be why I could save $2 on meat and $1 on produce.

    • Charlene

      How do you get the coupon book?

    • Susan

      Amy (#25),

      I only shop at the Publix in Taylors and can usually find the booklets. I got Family is its own reward, a Curves one, and various others that have been mentioned. They either put them with the ads on the turnstile at the front or sometimes in a display by the register closest to the front desk. I talked to someone in CS yesterday about the Raise your Hand booklet and she said they haven’t gotten them yet, but they usually put them out a few at a time to keep one person from taking all of them. It never hurts to ask at the desk.

    • Lorri

      Amy – Greenville SC stores are changing their coupon policy (according to two different managers at two different Publix stores). They will no longer give ANY overage. The managers both told me that corporate was working on a new coupon policy and that copies would be given to all customers in about 2 weeks. HTH! Let me know if anyone else has info on this.

    • Sharon

      Jenny- I just wanted to alert ya’ll to a deal on the Alexia crunchy snacks. I received a home mailer that had 2 $1 off coupons BUT I just noticed that there is also a mail-in coupon form!

      Hope this helps someone!

    • rydergal

      Michelle (41),
      A store kindly offering to accept competitor coupons is well within its rights to limit usage of them. Competitor coupons actually represent a Publix discount on the price…Publix gets absolutely no reimbursement or other payment for that comp q…they merely get goodwill from their customers. But refusing to give 2 store discounts, in the form of a comp q AND a store q, is reasonable. It’s certainly nice when you can stack 3 at a time, but understandable that a store stops that practice due to losing huge amounts of revenue from everyone making, say, 5 trips a week for formula. Publix will probably continue to accept comp q’s, but I bet you’ll be limited to either a comp q or a Publix q on each item…not both at one time.

      BTW, there are no Food Lion stores in AL. How close is your nearest one? I would never even consider attempting to use a FLIP, because I don’t think I could even ask at the service desk if they would take them with a straight face, knowing that the nearest one from me is well over 100 miles away and I certainly wouldn’t expect anyone to call them a competitor. But that’s a totally different story if you’re near the state line (I’m definitely not!). Just curious how close you are to one.

    • I was only planning on getting one giftcard for the Kraft promotion but I have already purchased $114.19 in groceries and have already bought 5 Kraft items so I guess I will just buy 3 more items and get 2 cards!
      Does anyone know how long these usually take to get?

      Kroger takes coupons that don’t have bar codes. I was able to use the Aqua Fresh ones for a bunch of free toothpaste.

    • I live in Coastal GA. My stores do not require you buy both items of a b1/g1 to receive the sale price and they also double coupons up to .50cents!

    • Heather

      rydergal #47,

      the nearest food lion to me is well over 300 miles. I asked at my publix customer service desk and they said they would take it. One cashier refused to take it. Because I have had great success with her and no problems in the past, I just said “ok” and took it back. I went back the next day and used it with another cashier that didn’t bat an eye.

      there was a food lion right down the road from us, but it has closed, so maybe my publix doesn’t know that the closest one is over 300 miles away.

      you may want to just ask at the customer service desk. I love my publix, their motto is “whatever makes the customer happy so they will keep coming back”

    • Nancy

      I live in N. Alabama and I also use the FLIP’s I talked to the store manager and he said they would accept them because our district is north alabama and is close to GA which has FL. He said that he doesnt want to get customers saying “well other stores take them” so he just accepts them. He was very nice to talk with about coupons. He also uses them.

    • lynn

      Jenny sorry about the mix up on the coupons for milk should have read the small print thought i was being helpful again sorry

      • Jenny


        Don’t feel bad you are always helpful!! Just wanted to stop everyone from running to the store with them.

    • Kim

      In your first post you said you were getting Kraft cheese, Parm cheese( i think) and 2 flavors of pudding. It has to be 4 different items for each rebate so I do not think the 2 puddings will work. Also it says on the form 4-6 weeks but I would guess if you get it in fast you will get it sooner than people who turn theirs in last minute.

    • Kim

      Wanted to let everyone know if you go to the Starkist Seasations website there is a Try me Free Thing on there. Or there was…….

    • Kim

      I am going by what was said on the actual rebate page by another person who emailed them directly:

      July 13th, 2009 at 3:02 pm
      I emailed Kraft today with some questions and this is how they responded (the * is their response)

      Question: I have a couple of questions regarding the Publix gift card promotion with Kraft products.

      1. To receive the $10 gift card, I understand that you have to purchase 4 different Kraft products. Does that mean it has to be 4 completely different things and not just different flavors? For example, can I buy 4 different flavors of Kraft BBQ sauce or do I have to buy 3 more completely different products besides the BBQ sauce.
      * If there are different flavors, so we consider them 4 different items

      I hope this helps everyone. Looks like you can buy lots of different kinds of BBQ sauce and it will count.


    • Susan

      Kim and Aymie,

      I e-mailed Kraft about this promotion and they said that different flavors of the same item (e.g. pudding, bbq sauce, salad dressing) would count as different products. The following is my questions and Kraft’s answers.

      1}If I do the promotion 3 times, do I need to buy 12 different Kraft products, or just 4
      different for each $50 spent?
      ** 4 different per $50 spent

      2)Does buying a different flavor/type of product count as being a different product (ex.
      salad dressing or barbecue sauce)?

    • Christy


      Would it be possible to re-link the $2.00 off beef or chicken when you purchase Lawyr’s Marinade? Thank you so much for everything you do!!

    • Thanks Susan!
      Im glad cause there were only a few things I wanted to purchase without a sale or coupon (looks like I am going to buy a few more flavors of pudding!! Makes great filler for a cake!)

    • lynn

      Jenny at tglee dairy website they have a coupon for 1.00 off any tglee dairy product i did read the small print and this is something every one can use if they have tglee products at there store the experation on this isnt till dec and the site idicates you can get 2 coupons every 2 months happy couponing

    • Barbara

      Where can you get a vocal point mailer?

    • Donna the publix at exit 17 in cumming takes everything

    • Kim

      Susan and Aymie,
      Thanks! That is great to know. Most of the products listed are kind of expensive so I am glad I can just do pudding and BBQ sauce! Thanks, Kim

    • Juliett

      I got lots of 8 o’clock coffee today. Use 3 $2/2 and $5/25 Rite Aid Q’s for $0.66 a bag!!! My new favorite coffee ;-]

    • Juliett

      That’s for 6 bags BTW!

    • AngelathecouponNERD

      Heather – (42) Hooray for Super Stacking! I have done so as well. Sounds like you have a great plan. I used $2 off produce wyb Kraft cheese, with a FLIP for Kraft cheese, and a MFG q for Kraft cheese.
      Worked like a champ. After all, I “bought” the kraft cheese to get the $2 off produce! I think the cheese was free after all that. It was over a month ago.

    • Jaime

      I need some help. On the Hefty @ $4.99. If you have a .50 or $1 manufacturig coupon as you have listed, how is it $1.49 each?

    • As of this past Sunday Publix in Prattville Al no longer accepts Food Lion Or Harveys coupons. Reason: not a competitor for them here.

    • Alyssa

      The Hefty plates are regularly $4.99 but on sale for Buy 1 Get 1 Free this week. (Jenny lists the B1G1 under a separate header). Most states (except FL) will ring the items up at half the reg. price and then double a .50 coupon.
      On sale the plates ring up at 2.49. The .50 coupon will double to $1. Final price for Hefty plates = 1.49.
      Hope this helps!

    • Leslie

      The Hefty is $4.99 B1G1 which is $2.49 each. A $1/1 manufacturer coupon (or a .50/1 that will double) would make it $1.49 each.

    • Alyssa

      Found a Lean Cuisine coupon in the All You magazine (July 24 issue) for B2G1 free!
      “Buy any two LEAN CUISINE Entrees and get the third FREE (up to $3.79 value)”

    • Tanya

      Emily/Donna/Linda – Cumming, Ga

      I am also in Cumming/Ball Ground, The Publix at Hwy369 and 306 is not very helpful. I go to the one in Freehome on Hwy 20 and they are wonderful! I forgot to get a raincheck one time but did not want to go back into the store b/c I had all four kids buckled. The mgr went and got them and brought them back out to me. Very nice people! All around here have stopped taking Food Lion but will accept Target.

    • Penny Pincher

      Publix loses money on the competitor coupons. Same with Publix coupons – they are like a sale. It’ just like they mark the price down when they honor them so of course they want them to be REAL competitors of their store to take them. If there are no Food Lions in your neighborhood they won’t take them. If there IS a Food Lion then they will take it OR a Publix coupon but not both at the same time.

      **Jenny Here**
      You are very right about competitor coupons but to chime in they do make their money back on the store coupons. Search for coupon redemption on Southern Savers and read the details.

    • Michelle

      Michelle (#41)

      I have also ran into that problem in the last 2 weeks at my Publix in Middle TN! I’ve done it so many times not doing it to intentionally scam them out of money. I honestly thought you could do it and the cashier allowed it so I didn’t know any different!

      I guess a lot of the times I have a stack of 30+ coupons so they never thought twice…The time they stopped me I only had 6 coupons total for the purchase!

      I guess I saved a TON of money while I super stacked… oh well! I’m also bummed because the baby needs formula!!

    • AngelathecouponNERD

      Hostess Sweet Sixteen Mini Donuts, at $2.99
      -.50/1 Hostess Donuts Family Pack RP 6/07 (makes it .49¢ ea)
      <————- Anyone find this coupon? Sounds silly, but my kids LOVE these donuts and I want to stock up and freeze them.
      I get the state paper, and my RP 6/07 doesn’t have this q. I know I’ve seen the q…. just can’t find it. Help?

    • Mary

      Before all the talk about “Flavors” for the rebate…Something to remember … Jenny always says … THINK SMALL!!!

      I had a larger $$ amt. Q and bought the smallest jar or item possible allowed. never knew they made Parmesean cheese shakers so small. LOL

      Anyway, I’m learning that smaller is good sometimes!!

    • Michelle, (Question #41)
      I had THE SAME problem at Athens, AL Publix yesterday with the Fresh Express salad. They told me that they would not take a Food Lion coupon with a Store Coupon b/c it was a competitor and a store combined. They said they could only stack one of those with a Manufacturer Q. I was so confused, as I too have done that many times before. They looked at me, shocked and dismayed. They kept rehashing it with me and the line was getting longer. So I just said that I certainly didn’t want to take advantage of anything I shouldn’t be doing. But now I’m wondering…what IS the deal? I’m SURE they let us stack like that before!

    • rydergal (#47),

      There are a bunch of us “coupon ladies” here in Athens, AL, and even though Food Lion is not near us, our store has made it known to us that they welcome that as a competitor coupon. It was their choice, and it is not something we are trying to “sneak past” them. And the reason that Michelle and I are confused is because that particular Publix in the past (since it opened last year), has allowed us to stack a Store Q with a competitor. We don’t understand now if the policy has changed or if we just got the same mislead cashier. The only issue I have had with that Publix is that I don’t want them to be wishy washy on their policy. Just tell me like it is and I will gladly follow. I just hate being embarrassed at check-out.

    • Kelly

      FYI- Starbuck Ice Cream reg price at Publix is 3.79. It is not on sale but if you stack the FLIP for 2.00 off with the manf Q for 1.00 off it makes it .79. I love that stuff!!!

    • Lena

      Tanya (#72),

      I agree Freehome Publix is great. The general manager is Joe. The only recent issue is that Joe said they no longer will accept the drug store coupons. The only competitors he will take are Target and Kroger. I need to find a Publix that will take those when there is a deal too good to pass up! They stopped taking FL coupons a while back. I bet if Ingles had a coupon, they would take it though.

    • cari

      Angela, re: hostess coupons

      I got these in an older insert, clipped them yesterday morning and when I grabbed them up again to put in my purse was completely bummed that they had expired 6/28. I re-checked all my inserts starting with the 6/7 and I did not get them . Maybe thats what happened to you, you got them in an older round and not on 6/7. :( I was looking forward to stocking up on these bc my little girl LOVES sugar donuts.

    • cari

      Kelly – thanks a bunch, I missed the FL sale last week on the ice cream and got so excited over the starbucks coffee drinks being free with the FLIP I didnt even think about using them towards the ice cream at publix! I have a BOGO raincheck for the ice cream from publix but I want to save them til I can get more coupons (I only have like 6 coupons and the RC is for 14….. LOL!!)

    • Heather

      I have gotten hooked on the stonyfield chocolate yogurts. I first used the 75¢ coupon, then I got the go organic booklet and used the $1 off coupon, I wanted to grab some more before the sale ended today, so I went to my publix last night. I had planned on getting 10 of them with the b4g1 free coupons from the containers, but they only had 6 left. so I found someone stocking shelves and asked if there were any more and he said, “not until tomorrow” I said that the sale would be over tomorrow, he said he would give me a rain check. I explained that I had the coupons that I wanted to stack with the sale. so he said he would give me 2 free, so I was getting 4, and then 2 free, using only one of my b4g1 coupons, and he would give me a raincheck for the sale price so I could stack my coupons in the future. It turned out that he was the regional manager. He was super nice. I guess I went to the right person! He told me that if I ever had any problems using any coupons to have them call him.

    • lauren

      Where can I find an official copy of the Publix coupon policy and rain check policy? Has anyone else had a cashier TAKE OFF the doubling of a coupon? It happened to me this morning on the go-gurts and I was shocked.. In the stores defense, the internet printed coupon did read “do not double”. But I’ve never had the cashier back out $ the computer has issued. This cashier also questioned the length of time and amount of items I had a rain check. She was visibly upset that I was using all these coupons, rain checks and had cut my bill by over half. (Yea me!) I want to be fair and play by the rules, I just need to know exactly what the rules are!!

    • Angela W

      Thanks Cari. I must have tossed the expired hostess q’s in my last cleanout. I feel better knowing that they’d expired. :) still a good price at BOGO.

    • Tracie

      I have a Alexia Natural Crunchy Snacks, in one of smart source coupons for a dollar off. There maybe a possibility for some of you. Hope that solves some of confusion.

    • Angela W. my hostess coupons are expired too!!!! You are not alone!!LOL! I’m crying here!

    • Michelle

      rydergal, thank you for your response. The reason I questioned it because this store’s policy is to stack all three (comp, man and publix store) and now I am not sure what a comp coupon is.

      I actually had no idea until reading on here that this store accepted Food Lion coupons. I found out here from these posts and so I went to the manager and asked what competitor coupons they accept (I DID feel weird about asking but since so many other users on here were saying that this store accepted them it made me feel better aboutu it). Their response was “if I shop at their store, they will accept any coupon we present – even military store coupons).

      This is what all leads me to the confusion now….if they said they had a change in policy I am totally happy to say okay and go about my usual savings. But now they are saying this has been their policy all along….this is why I am asking others if they have run into this at this store.

      I totally agree with you that they are generous in accepting the competitor coupon, even though their is not a FL in this state. But that was in place before I even started shopping there.

    • Michelle

      Lara 78 & 79

      Thanks for helping me explain myself more clearly. I DO NOT want to take advantage or get over on Publix. I too just want to know what the policy is now and am confused that they are now saying that this has always been the policy when I know for a fact it hasnt been in the past (because I went to management to verify the policy before I ever used a FL coupon).

      The cashier was an older lady but when I called I spoke to “Jennifer” who I dont believe is a manager. I think I was more confused after the phone call because they verified that they stack all three Q’s but then said they don’t take publix q with a fl q….I wish I would have then said “give me an example of stacking all three” so I could be clear but we were headed out of town and I decided to just let it go and ask here.

    • Deborah

      Has anyone found the printable Snapple coupon? I’ve tried lots of zip codes, but I haven’t found it. Maybe the print limit has been reached.

    • Donna

      I have a Snapple Manufacturer’s coupon that is from Smartsource Exp Date 12/0/09. It is $1.00 off one 12 pack. I probably printed it off in June or early July. Been waiting on a sale.

    • Deborah–I just printed mine off. I used zipcode 29341! HTH!

    • What is the number of coupons and the max dollar amount of coupons you can use before they have too do a override? Thanks in advance!

    • beth

      what Greenville SC publix are going to stop giving overage? I mainly shop at the Thornblade one. They never have coupon books. I guess I will have to sweet talk the manager now. Thanks for the tip

    • Charlene

      If the special does not have a link “printable or PDF” next to it, does this mean the coupon is located in Sunday’s SmartSource or RedPlum?

    • Adele

      Are they accepting the FLIP for $2 off Starbucks Coffee on the Ice Cream? Just wondering if anyone has tried it yet?

    • Deborah

      Thanks Jennifer! I found out. :)

    • Deborah

      Oops, I meant “I found it.”

    • Jennifer – its a $50 max in coupons or more coupons than items that the register will start beeping and you will need an override.

    • Jenny or whoever else can answer
      I see that Good Seasons dressing is BOGO and its a also a participating product for the Kraft rebate.
      Since I live in FL and one is full price and one is free, will Kraft see that I did not physically pay for them both and only count the one or will they count it as two even though one is free??

    • Thank you so much Amy B!!!!!!

    • Linda

      Aymie,Re: #101
      Don’t know if the free one would count towards a second rebate but you have to have 4 different kraft items for each rebate. I got
      Jello pudding (make sure it is over 2 oz) $1.09
      Small kraft parmesan cheese $2.19
      oscar mayer bacon pieces $1.89
      Kraft 2% shredded cheese $2.79= $7.96
      Prices may vary by store but this is what I did because these are the items I will use. Not a bad deal, I get the items and make a couple of dollars to do it. I will do this same deal 2 more times before this ends.

    • I went back to my blog and saw that I had used the Hostess Q, it was for $.50 off and in was in the RP 5/10 insert. Thank goodness for blogs!

    • V

      My Publix wanted to refuse the Harvey’s internet printout coupons saying they were a “copy” and that the coupon says void if copied. Harvey’s is a local competitor. Anyone else run into this? (They took it today but said not in the future).
      Thanks for all the awesome tips and coupon matches! Today I bought $130 of groceries for $55!

      • Jenny


        Next time take the entire printed sheet with you if they are going to be picky and explain that, this is what they look like straight off the site. Sometimes that helps.

    • Bobbie

      Well, The Lenoards, now how do you use blogs to keep track of coupons used. LOL Thanks. I’m new at using the computer for all these coupon deals and it’s great.

    • Robin

      Trying to use some of the Food Lion/Harvey’s Q’s at Publix for the first time. Our Publix is pretty lenient…will they substitute Publix brand for the Qs that say “Food Lion brand”? Example, buns and frozen potatoes this week.


    • Kelly

      Adele, they took the Starbucks Q for ice cream for me but I had a boat load of coupons. I didn’t realize it was for coffee I just saw it said Starbucks and thought ICE CREAM! Oops.

    • Lauri

      I’m having problems with printing the Eight O’Clock coffee coupon. It says Java is not enabled, but I checked and it is enabled. Anyone have any ideas?

      Thanks so much!

    • Lauri

      Disregard my post about the coffee coupon….it worked!

      Thanks! :-)

    • V

      Thanks Jenny! Funny thing is they never batted an eye at the $10off/$40coupon from a few weeks ago! Thanks again!

    • Delanna

      I am so bummed. Our Publix (Summerville) said they no longer accepted Target coupons because they don’t consider them a competitor. How crazy is that? They sell groceries and the coupon was for a grocery item. Yet they still accepted my Rite Aid coupon. I would consider them less of a competitor than Target. :(

    • Linda
      Read above about this discussion.
      Kraft will consider different flavors different products.

    • JENNY
      If I buy bogo Good Seasons dressing (I live in FL) will Kraft accept them both even though one is free??

    • Jenn

      FYI, my Publix in Athens Georgia did not have the starkist fish labeled BOGO, but they did ring up that way.

    • Shery

      Wow! My head is spinning after reading all these comments. I did learn a great deal however. ;0) I still appreciate my local (Pelham Rd, Greenville) Publix store. I will continue to shop there even if they find it necessary to change some of their coupon policies. Personally, I want them to succeed and not end up out of business. Most of the Publix stores I have shopped in throughout the south are clean, wide-aisled (which I appreciate), and with extremely helpful staff.

      As for Jenny, I don’t know how you manage to keep up with so many of these posts and do all the other things you do! Thank you so much for helping us hard-working moms to be able to meet the needs of our families, save money, and save time! I have only been using this site for about 6 months, but I tell everyone about it. One of the customers standing behind me at Publix earlier this week made the comment to me “You must not have a job to be able to take time to locate all those coupons.” Well, I may not have a full-time paying job, but I’m sure that I’m working as long (or longer days) than she does, and I would still make using coupons and saving money a priority. Thankfully, the gentleman working the cash register piped up and said, “I work here and still take time to find and use coupons! Last week I went home with over $50.00 worth of groceries for less than $10.00.” I appreciated the advocate I had at that moment. ;0)

      Thanks again for this most helpful website.

    • Shery
      I *hate* those snarly remarks from people!!
      They are just jealous because they dont make the time to save money like us!
      You’re not alone, I get it all the time! But I also get a lot of compliments and “you’re my hero” comments so I guess it balances out! LOL

    • Hi,

      Under the Keebler Vienna fingers posted for use at Publix, BIGI, the coupon printable will not print. It stated, sorry, come back in a few minutes. I tried numerous times yesterday, 7/23/09 and today, 7/24/09. I am in Southwest Florida so don’t know if that makes a difference.



    • Amy B.

      I noticed today that all the school supplies that were BOGO last week are still on “in-store” special at 2 stores in my area (SC). So if you missed out on any of that stuff, you may still have a chance.

    • Melissa

      There is a $1 store coupon for Harvey’s for Doritos….with the B1G1 at Publix you end up paying .99 per bag.

    • Barbara

      There is a -35/2 Pillsbury reduced sugar cake coupon in RP5/17

      I couldn’t find the Starkist Seasations in the RP6/21. anyone find in another area?

    • Tarrah R.

      We have no Food Lion near us, nor Harvey’s- My manager never even heard of Harvey’s! However, I was told that they take ALL competitor coupons, so I was able to use all of them- first week I even TRIED, because I thought I’d surely get a NO when there are no stores in the area. I guess if you can take a simple “No” rejection, it would be worth it. Also… I’ve been shopping my Publix for over 6 years now and know most of the workers there, and I KNOW that helps me in the long run. I suggest finding one or two cashiers that you can count on to run your coupons without question, and at least one manager whom you can go to for the questionable items. I.E.- A cashier rang up four Bertolli meals for me for $4.99 BOGO- however, they were supposed to only be $4.99/each; I KNEW I couldn’t live with myself if I didn’t TRY to do the right thing, so I went to a particular manager with whom I had aquired a repore (report?), and he said to just let it go. I, obviously, was hopeing for this response, but didn’t sit right until I heard it right from a manager.
      As for all the talk about stacking competitor and store coups- I’d never even thought about doing this. I’d LOVE to hear Jenny’s thought on this subject. I’m sure if I asked ‘my’ manager, He’d probably tell me to try it. (he DID tell me to try to stack the $3 off make your meal combo AND $3 off $10 deli purchase for a Family meal- after coups, got the meal for $4.69- CHEAPER Than ONE meal at McD’s and I didn’t have to cook! WOOHOO!!!)- I just don’t want to KNOWINGLY do something wrong and then always get ‘that look’ when I go shopping.

    • Robin Vanwy

      Where can I pick up the “Smart Summertime Savings” and “Raise Your Hand for Savings” booklets? I looked in the rotating rack at the Publix where I shop and I asked the at the Service Desk and no one knew what I was talking about. Thanks everyone – especially Jenny.

    • Rebecca

      Can someone please tell me where you get the “Savings Rebate Booklet” (See Charmin deal in list above)

    • Mandy

      Thomasville Publix –
      Our local store never seems to have the coupon booklets when I go in. I contacted the store manager (actually I just emailed Publix through their website and the local manager called) and she assured me that they did put them out. I asked if she could begin to keep them behind the customer service counter so somewhat slow down the number of booklets people were getting. She said that is something they would look into if more people begin to complain. If anyone else has this problem I just thought you would like to know they are putting them out but the booklets go quickly!

    • Jessica

      Hi! I am VERY new to this whole couponing thing. And I’m trying to understand a few things. I hope nobody minds answering my question?

      I don’t understand some of your numbers. For example:

      Hebrew National Kosher All Beef Franks, or Knockwurst, 11 or 12 oz, at $4.99
      -$1 off Hebrew National Conagra Home Mailer or SS 6/14 or printable (makes it $1.49)
      -$1/2 Hebrew National products SS 6/14

      By my count, if you subtract $1 from $4.99… that equals $3.99. Even if they doubled it (which I’m pretty sure Publix won’t do over $.50), it would still only be $2.99. My question is:

      How do you arrive at the hotdogs only being $1.49?

      I’m sorry if I’m just missing something completely here… I’m very excited to start actually doing this so, I appreciate any help! :)

      • Jenny


        They are B1G1 at $4.99 so they will ring up at $2.49 ea. Minus $1 off makes it $1.49.

    • Jessica

      Thank you so much! Now, I see that I missed the big “Buy One Get One Deals” title at the top. Thanks for your patience!! I love your site – thanks for putting so much time into it! :)

    • Allison

      Emily/Donna/Linda/Tanya – and all others in Cumming/Buford……..

      Publix at 20/Suwanee Dam Rd is AWESOME!!! they accept Target, FL, Rite Aid, Babies R US (for diapers, laundry detergent, etc) – and probably ANY other coupons. They have NEVER questioned any transaction (knock on wood). the store is wonderfully friendly and hardly ever too crowded.

      The Kroger at Buford Hwy/20 is also awesome. pretty old store – but the staff is super friendly and helpful. have heard that they will take publix coupons – but i havent tried it yet.

    • Donna

      Thanks for letting me know that Allison, that is WONDERFUL to know. I usually shop Publix at Hwy20 and Trammel, the won’t take CVS, FL or Rite Aid.

    • Does anyone know if Kraft will count 2 items if I bogo on the Good seasons?
      I am in FL

    • Emily

      Donna, I shop at publix at southard crossing, and they take kroger, cvs and target coupons – they won’t take babies r us or food lion, none of the other ones have been refused and I use a TON of them! Hope that helps :)

      Which Summerville Publix isn’t taking Target coupons? I’ll be shopping on Sunday, and I’ll go to the other one,or to Goose Creek to see if it has changed everywhere.

    • Katie

      Barbara- The Starkist Coupon was in the AJC a while back if that helps answer your question.

      Do you plan to repeat the same products?
      Jello pudding (make sure it is over 2 oz) $1.09
      Small kraft parmesan cheese $2.19
      oscar mayer bacon pieces $1.89
      Kraft 2% shredded cheese $2.79= $7.96

      Also, Food Lion has a $1 off Kraft printable you could use on the cheese.

      The Starkist q is in ATL paper.

    • Kelly

      If you shop in the Summerville Publix off Old Orangeburg, a friend of mine talked with the manager and he told her they were accepting Target coupons (as of yesterday _ Fri, the 24th). However, they seem to change their story every time I go in since I’ve started back hard on couponing. I think it matteres who the manager is at the time.
      I plan on going there today or Monday and If anything new occurs I’ll post it here. Our Publix seems to be a little finicky.

    • Donna

      Allison, can you tell me if the Publix at Hwy20/Suwanee Dam takes Harvey’s Grocery Store Q’s? I see there is one in Dawson County.

    • Linda

      Adele Re: #136
      Yes, the rebate form states a minimum of 4 different products so I may buy a different flavor of pudding or another type of 2% cheese but these are items I use a lot so I will stick with my 4 basic items and just do a repeat.

    • Linda

      Adele Re: 140
      I forgot to mention, there are no Food Lions here so I am out of luck in using their coupons. But one good thing for me, there is a Winn Dixie where I go weekly for meat/produce bargains. They have been spitting out a $10.00 off $50.00 (which my Publix will accept) for the last few weeks!

    • stacy

      Just wondering if anyone knows of a coupon website that may service the McLean VA area. The stores that are used are Harris Teeter, Safeway, and Giant. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated as my sister in law has moved to this area and would love to be able to save like we do. Unfortunatley, Publix, Bilo, Food Lion, and Kroger are not near by. Thanks everyone!!!!!!

    • JEB

      I know Aldi and Piggly Wiggly are not stores on this site, but if you are in their area, Piggly Wiggly brand canned corn and grean beans are 4 for $1 and 2 liter cokes are $1 thru Tues.. At Aldi, their prices on produce and meat seem like Southernsaver prices. We love their Ranch dressing for .99

      Kraft Easy Mac 6 pack boxes were $2.29. Better price than Walmart, but maybe not as good as Publix BOGO?

    • JEB


      Try couponmom.com website or frugalcouponliving.com or hotcouponworld.com or afullcup.com for stores in other nonsouthern states.

    • Lindsey

      Meijer has a coupon for Mixed Nuts. You can combine it with –
      $1 off Planters Nuts SS 6/28

    • Does anyone know if Publix will take a $5 off $20 ALDI coupon??
      It is a promotion coupon for a new one near us…

    • Linda T

      I was told by the cashier at the Publix at Bullsboro and Millard Farmer Road (Newnan, GA) that they no longer accept Target coupons. Just fyi…. They have in the past and say that it is a new policy. Does anyone know whether the other Publix in Newnan are still accepting them?

    • Aymie, please tell me your ALDI is in Birmingham, AL? I only buy milk and other dairy items at ALDI b/c it is so cheap! Haven’t seen the $5 off coupon though. Where was it found?

    • Crissy

      I thought you said that when things are BOGO, you don’t have to buy 2 to get the deal. It would ring up half off. However, 2 different items I purchased did not ring up that way…the Alexia fries and the Smuckers preserves. :(

    • Renie
      I live in Central FL and they just built a new one near us.
      Its a promotion coupon…

    • Heather

      In our Sunday paper today (AJC), there is a Publix coupon ad called “Pet Days”. I was able to use the $1 off Frisky’s coupon from 6/14 SS t with the Publix $2 coupon (from the ad) and get the dry food for free. Planning on donating it. Just wanted to mention “Pet Days” b/c I hadn’t seen it mentioned here yet.

    • Stephanie

      does anyone know how much Similac Advanced powder formula is at publix? I just want to know if its worth going and getting it if its a good price.

    • Ax

      When it comes to the Hefty plates deal, the coupon (RP 6/21) starts with a 9 and therefore will not double… Only coupon starting with a 5 double

    • Lynne

      Publix in Goose Creek would not take a competitor coupon or man. coupon along with a Publix coupon…first time, maybe they are changing their policy?

    • Stephanie

      I think someone asked about a charmin coupon. I can’t remember with all the posts I read lol. I found a .50 coupon in the detergent aisle. They were attached to the bottle by an elastic cord at the top.

    • Susan

      I e-mailed Publix requesting, Family is it’s own reward and Raise your hands booklet’s. The manager of the local store (Chattanooga-E. Brainerd area), called me and said he was holding 2 rewards booklets (they expire 7/31, just started going to Publix and did not know) and they do not have the Raise your hands booklets yet. This was a very nice gesture, I just love my new Publix (well, new to me).

      Thank You again Jenny, and everyone! I am so glad I came accross Southern Savers.

    • Dai

      I went grocery shopping at publix today, and it was great. I live in Centrla Florida and took all of my Albertson Coupons (they had a page worth of coupons in the wed paper ad) If you live near an Albertson’s it is worth it. I bought some Dannon yogurt (6) for $1.00 is one example….

    • lynn

      i didnt know we had aldi stores here in florida do they have a store locator aymie?

    • Amy

      Jenny – the Fuel for School booklet has a coupon for $2 off Store Brand Coffee wyb 2 Nutrigrain bars (which are BOGO) .. do you know if the coffee has to be PUBLIX coffee at Publix .. or can it be any coffee sold at Publix?

    • Shopping is a pleasure

      Everyone, Publix does not & will not have a ” coupon policy ” The corporate office will not set a quote unquote set policy b/c there are too many different competitors the stores have around them in the 4 states they are in. What has been passed down the pipeline to the stores is that they can set their own policy to meet with the competition around them within a 5 mile radius. Also non traditional competitor coupons don’t have to be accepted : Wal Mart, Target, Rite Aid, CVS, etc, etc. & Traditional coupons of a competitor that isn’t within the demographics of the store doesn’t have to be accepted either : Food Lion ( Bloom who is owned by Food Lion won’t even accept their coupons )

      Now the traditional coupons they will accept are Ingles, BiLo, Whole foods etc.,etc. ( As long as these stores are within a 5 mile radius of the Publix you are shopping at)

      I am sure that alot of you have seen some stores accept some of the non traditional or Food lion coupons ( Once again it is up to that store mgr. to decide if it is OK but they don’t have to accept them.) As you all know Publix doesn’t get paid back for these coupons it takes from their bottom line.

      I hoped this answered some questions you had about coupon policy in Publix. I want to say Thank you all for educating me too on how great it is to coupon. I have been doing this now for 4 months & it has made a difference in our home with the savings. I not only manage at a Publix but I am a customer too & appreciate all of you.

    • Shopping is a pleasure

      Correction, Publix is in 5 states sorry.

    • Lynn
      Im not sure I dont know if they have a website.
      I never shop there!
      They are slowly building them everywhere near where I live.
      There are about 7 within a 30 mile radius.

    • April

      Deal Idea….let me know if this will work

      buy 2 Hormel Always Tender roasts at $5.99 (not on sale)
      use the Harvey’s FLIP for $4 off any $10 fresh pork
      Use the Food Lion’s FLIP for $2 off $5 produce
      Use 2 Manufacturer’s Qs for buy Hormel always Tender Roasts and get $3 off any 1 produce item

    • Tracie

      Smart Ones Deal:

      There is a $2/4 coupon in Nothing Goes To Waist Booklet that you can stack with the $1/1 Target coupon which make them .30 each!

    • Becca

      I found a printable coupon for $1 off 7-Up 12 pack…http://www.7up.com/ Not sure if you have to buy 5 (12) packs for this Publix deal though, I guess I’ll find out when I go tomorrow :-)

    • Publix at S. Pleasantburg/ McCalister’s ( Greenville, SC) does not accept Harvey’s coupons. The manager yesterday said that there were not any in the state. I took back a print out of the location and address today and the manager today said…didn’t matter – which I can accept- it isn’t close. I just told them that they shouldn’t say that there isn’t one in the state. Does anyone know if the Pelham Road or Thornblade Publix will accept the Harvey’s coupons?

    • Tracie
      Thank you for pointing that out, I knew I had a smart ones coupon and was waiting to use it!! Time to stock up!

    • Has anyone tried the low sugar strawberry jam??
      I was thinking about buying it since its bogo and have coupon…

    • Also…
      I think the Starkist frozen fillets are disgusting, but I have a few coupons and since they are free was thinking about buying them, do you think a local food bank will take them?
      I dont know if they take perishable items???

    • AngthecouponNERD

      Aymie –
      I’ve used the low sugar jams and I think they are good!

    • Caitlin

      I can’t find the Doritos coupon on the Harvey’s website? Is it only listed under a specific zip code or something?
      Thanks Jenny for all your hard work….it makes my job of grocery shopping so much easier!

    • Tracie
      Do you know if the Smart ones pizzas are included in the sale??
      There is also a $.75 off smart ones coupon from the same Publix booklet, use that with the Target printable, makes them $.05!!!

    • Wooohooo Just stocked up on Smart ones at Target!!!!
      They come to about $.30 a piece when you stack!
      I also found a “buy 4 Smart ones entrees, get a free smart ones dessert” in the August issue of All you!
      Cant beat that!

    • lynn

      where do you print target coupons and what is the print limit to them and how do you stack at target thanks aymie for any info

    • lynn

      and is that only at a super target?

    • Lynn
      In the front of the store you can go to the computers like you do on a registry, go to Target.com and then scroll down the bottom and click Grocery coupons.
      Choose the ones you want and they print right there.
      If you want multiple like I did, go to http://www.organicgrocerydeals.com and go to Target coupon generator, select the ones you want and then type in how many of that coupon you want, there is no limit on that site, I printed 20.
      You can stack at Target the same as Publix. They take a manu and a store QP for the same item.
      Say you buy 4.
      They are $1.80 a piece.
      4 would be $7.20.
      Use (4) Target $1.00 coupons and (1) $2.00 off 4 Manu coupon.
      That now makes it $1.20 for the 4 (or $.30 each!)
      I dont have a super target near me, the regular one has grocery items just no produce or meat, but they have pretty much everything else.
      I dont think there is a limit.
      I bought 12 in one transaction today but I ran out of room in my freezer so I am going to wait until Fri to get 4 more and my free dessert…
      They lady didnt say anything, in fact she was impressed at how cheap they were.
      The only ones on sale are the regular ones, not the bistro or the pizzas, but they are still yummy.
      My favorite is lasagna florentine!!

    • Did anyone have a problem finding the Good Seasons dressing at Publix?
      They said they didnt stock that kind, just Kraft.
      I am running out of cheap ideas for the Kraft rebate…
      Does anyone know if their Publix has them and where at?

    • Jennifer Gamble

      ALDI Question Answered:

      I talked with Sam, the manager, at the Bessemer/McCalla store. He said they only accept coupons from “traditional” grocery stores within a 50 mile radius. I specifically asked about ALDI and he does not view them as a “traditional” grocery store.

    • lynn

      wow aymie thank you for the 411

    • Lynn
      Aldi a grocery store that sells mostly generic brand items.
      I dont like it, I just use their coupons at Publix!! LOL

    • Katherine


      I’m relatively new to couponing. But I love your website and have learned a lot. I’m now saving at least $40 off my grocery bill every week. One question – Is there any way to know what deals Publix will have next week before the ads go out? I’ve been keeping track every week to try to figure out the pattern, but didn’t know if it was published somewhere. Thanks in advance.

    • Amanda K

      Not sure if this has been posted yet but on cookingwithkraft.com they have put up new coupons. Here is the link


    • lynn

      katherine it is suggested you buy for a six week cycle…. as for seeing it early i just go to google around friday and type in publix sale for the coming week and some one most of the time has it posted but this is the best place if you want the coupon match up coming here has showed me how to get thing i need want or other wise wish for .. for next to nothing

    • Tracie


      Were you able to use get the Smart Ones Pizza @ Target?

    • Tarrah R.

      Don’t know if anyone will be reading this today since its the last sale day in some areas, but in case it hadn’t been mentioned; There is a Kid Cuisine $1/2 in Aug. All You magazine- Makes them $.50/ea! LOVE IT!

    • Tarrah R.

      Thank you, Becca, for the heads up on the 7-up (haha- that was kinda funny). Good deal if you can stack the coup’s!

    • Tarrah R.

      I’ve seen a lot of talk about the SmartOnes meals- I got my coupons all together…but now I don’t see where they are on sale!??! I didn’t get a lot of sleep, but I looked the page over three times, I cannot find it! What is the smartones deal, please?

    • Tracie

      Tarrah #191;

      They are on sale @ Target 5 for $9

    • Heather

      regarding competitor coupons:

      the way it was explained to me is that publix considers the competitor coupon as a “store” coupon. even though they ring it up as a “competitor coupon” it then becomes a “publix coupon” that’s why they accept them. Whenever you use a “competitor store coupon” you are essentially using a “publix” coupon…. you cannot stack an actual publix coupon with a competitor coupon, unless that competitor coupon is a manufacturer coupon. If any of you are able to stack publix coupons with competitor coupons, you’re lucky. The way it was explained to me, makes sense.

      I hope I made sense. essentially, pretend a competitor coupon is a publix coupon.

    • Tracie
      Unfortunately the pizzas are not included in the deal :(
      Oh well, I still got tons they are yummy and not bad for a diet food.

    • Tarrah
      Look near the end, you should see it. They are on sale 5 for $9

    • Kami

      Publix in Columbia are very picky about competitor coupons now. They won’t do Walgreen, Rite Aid, Target, etc. because they aren’t grocery store competitors. Now I’ve also been told that they won’t take certain Food Lion coupons. Ex. $3 off produce, $3 off deli/bakery. I wanted to do the Publix meal deal with the chicken and sides and get $3 off. It didn’t happen. :( Those of you who can still use the coupons…enjoy it while it lasts! I’m jealous!

    • Emily, Donna and others in the NE Atlanta area – We have been shopping at the new Publix @ corner of Old Atlanta and Windermere. They are GREAT there and always very helpful. There is one cashier who is always a little snarky when she sees me coming with a stack of coupons, but most are awesome! They accept Target coups because there is a super Target right up the street. Not sure about others they may accept because I don’t follow the others (Rite Aid, Walgreens) yet. I am still learning the ropes with CVS and Publix, but that is a great Publix to try if you have difficulty at others.

    • gail

      I really like the low-sugar jams and jellies. But don’t touch the sugar-free ones with a ten-foot pole!

      My ex-fave Publix would not take my Harvey’s coupons last night!!
      That was the first time they ever gave me a problem. And, I drive past 2 other Publix stores to get to that store, simply because of the coupons!!

    • I got the low sugar havent tried it yet but hoping it will be good.

    • Patty

      Heads up! The Taylors Publix has the Raise Your Hands for Savings coupon booklet. They also have some $1 off DiGiorna Pizza coupons. Also checked their policy last weekend on comp coupons. They will take only food store comp coupons now…no Rite Aid or Target as these were pointed out specifically. And last week the downtown Greenville Publix clerk informed me that they would not take the Food Lion coupons anymore, which is odd as there is a Food Lion in Piedmont, well within the 50 mile marker.

    • ET

      Linda T (#147), I haven’t tried any of the other Publix stores in Newnan since a friend told me that the Bullsboro location stopped taking the Target coupons. It is a shame, because I will drive across the street, as will others, to get a deal at Target using a manufacturer’s coupon as well as a Target coupon. And while there, I may be tempted to buy other products as well that will take money away from Publix. I am supposed to talk with the manager the next time I stop in at Publix so I will let you know. He seemed very nice when I spoke with him on the phone. The same friend also told me that the Bullsboro store recently stopped taking the Walgreen’s and other drug store coupons. The LF location stopped taking them about two months ago, or at least they told me that when I was in there at that time.

    • Katherine

      Thanks Lynn. I always get the ad on Tuesday, but if I can figure out the week before what next week’s sales will be, I can trade for the right coupons.

    • Tarrah R.

      My Publix informed me today that they will not take any competitor coupons unless the store is within a 5 mile radius (or in town, I guess). The reason: People calling complaining to corporate about inconsistencies from store to store! That is very upsetting news to me. I don’t understand why people would call corporate and make a big scene because one Publix took their coupons and one didn’t….just shop the one that DID take them! UGH! I knew something like this would happen sooner or later. Just wish it could be later! I just learned that I could use some Competitor coups two weeks ago- literally! It’s a corporate-wide policy now, so, like Kami said, enjoy it if you still get yours taken, because the cashiers will be taking the coupon class soon. Still doing good without competitor coups, so I guess I will live! :-) God Bless!
