Heads up, extreme couponers! Starting May 23rd, Publix will change the way you use coupons at checkout time.
With the popularity of the new TLC show “Extreme Couponing” growing, many more Americans are using coupons to save big bucks at the grocery store. Publix has always has a very lenient policy on accepting coupons, but they’re planning a few changes starting May 23rd…
From Richard Mullins at TBO.com:
• Publix will accept these coupons: manufacturers’ coupons, limit one per item; Publix coupons, originals only — no copies; valid Internet coupons; and coupons from a store’s nearby competitors. Accepted competitor names are posted at each Publix store.
• Publix will accept coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only, not percent-off items or percent-off total order coupons.
• Publix will reserve the right to limit the quantity of items sold with a coupon, and managers will need to approve any individual coupon worth more than $5.
• For buy-one-get-one free, or BOGO, offers, each item is considered a separate sale and Publix 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 from Publix and one from a competitor per order. The order total must be equal to or greater than the total purchase requirements indicated on the coupon or coupons presented.
Publix spokeswoman Shannon Patten confirmed the changes.
