Using Coupons

When you shop at Publix they do have a limit on the number of like coupons you can use at one time. You can only use 8 LIKE coupons per transaction.  Publix also has their own Publix store coupons which you then can combine with a manufacturer’s coupon. Throw in a good B1G1 sale and you can really score big. Publix often puts out XX dollars of an XX purchase. $10 off your $50 order. These are one per day and one competitor dollar off coupon per day. Your total must equal the amount on both.

Using Competitor’s Coupons

Publix is great when it comes to accepting competitor coupons. Each Publix will have various stores they accept coupons from, this based on location. Publix usually keeps a list posted at the front of the store or you can ask at customer service. Competitor coupons are not manufacturer coupons, they are store coupons. That means you can use a manufacturer coupon and a Publix coupon or a manufacturer coupon and a competitor store coupon. You have to chose which is the better deal. Store coupons for store brand products can also be used. A good example would be target’s Up  & Up coupons can be used on Publix brand products.

Stacking Your Coupons

Stacking coupons means you using several coupons to buy the same item. You stack a Publix coupon with a manufacturer’s coupon on your item. The difference between the two types of coupons can be determined by looking at the top of the coupon. Publix coupons say “Publix Coupons” at the top. Manufacturer’s coupons is stated otherwise. You can look at the bar code. Publix coupons have a LU#. These don’t scan, the cashier types them in.

Stacking & a B1G1 Sale

One other excellent reason to go shopping at Publix is the abi8lity to stack coupons with B1G1 sales. They count the free item in a B1G1 sale as a purchase.  If there’s an auto deduct sale you can use the store coupon on top of the auto deduct.
