This is the coupon policy directly from the Publix website.
Publix accepts manufacturers’ coupons (limit one per item), Publix coupons (originals only—no copies), valid Internet coupons, and coupons from nearby competitors identified by each Publix store. (Competitor names are posted at each Publix store.) We will accept coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only. We will not accept percent-off-items or percent-off-total-order coupons. We will only accept coupons for identical merchandise we sell. Acceptance is subject to any restrictions on the coupon, and we reserve the right to limit quantities. Manager approval is needed for individual coupons above $5.00. For a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) offer, each item is considered a separate sale. We will accept a manufacturer’s coupon and either a Publix or a competitor coupon on the same item. Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor coupon per order. The order total must be equal to or greater than the total purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented.
Some scenarios and notes about the above policy:
- Publix also participates in the UPromise program. Go to the customer service desk to get a card.
- I just learned something new from researching the Publix website. If you need to get a raincheck and the coupon is expiring before the item comes in you may still used the coupon. I have given up quite a few deals not knowing that piece of information,.
- Some dollars-off-total-order coupons say before or after coupons. I have noticed that this varies with your cashier. Some cashiers don’t care, some are very strict. Either way present that coupon first just in case they will take it.
- Publix accept a coupon for a competitor’s private label product because it’s a chance to introduce you to the terrific Publix brand. I love the Publix brand ice cream best of all. A lot of times Target will have coupons for their Market Pantry meat of cheese.
