News Flash! Publix now accepts CVS coupons!!

In: Money Makers, Money Savers

So, I’d heard from my friend, Tahsha, that she was getting amazing deals on groceries at Publix using her $4/$20 coupons from CVS as well as Walgreens and other pharmacy coupons. However, I was so sad to try my own hand at it, and find out that they did NOT accept pharmacy coupons – only other grocery store competitors like Food Lion, Bloom’s, Bi-Lo, etc.

After doing a little talking to some district managers, store managers, and cashiers, I was pleased to get a call from Stuart at the McBee Station Publix (the downtown one!) telling me that after talking with his district manager about it, they decided that they should take CVS coupons for like items they sale in their store (Groceries and health and beauty items). YIPPEE!! THis means we can use TRIPLE coupons at Publix – Store couons, Manufacturer’s coupons, AND competitors coupons. . .. oh boy. . . can you tell I’m excited?!?!? 🙂

Here’s a roundup of what their current policy is. Remember, this was only confirmed at the McBee station Publix in Greenville, so I’m not sure what the policy is in other stores, but you could always refer them to this store if you’d like! (And anytime you see a “Stuart” walking around, give him a big thank-you!)

*Publix will double coupons up to $0.50

*Publix puts out their own coupons in the Sunday and Wednesday paper as well as in their in-store ads in the front of the store.

*Publix will take competitors coupons like Food Lion, Kroger (if there’s one nearby), and now (at McBee station only) CVS and Walgreens!! Also keep in mind that if you sign up for a “Breeze card” with Bloom’s, you can get some $10/$40 purchase coupons to use as well (these are sent to your mailbox)!

* Publix will allow you to use up to 3 different categories of coupons on one item – only your total cannot be negative.

Publix also has a great Baby Club that you can join to get awesome coupons as well for things like $3/$10 dairy purchase or coupons from the meat department and deli. You can sign up for those here

    Way to be persistent! So, did you get your baby club coupons already? Aren’t they great! We had to adjust the dates for our trip in Sep. to when Tim could get off. We are leaving on Wed. the 17, and returning on Wed. the 24. Let us know if you’d like to use the house during this time. Of course, we’d love to see you part of the time you were here if at all possible. TTYL.

    Just had to add: I just got back from a big Publix trip. Tim’s brother is here, so I had more food to buy. Drum roll please…I got $310.85 worth for $30.24!!!! I was really excited. I didn’t get everything on my list, b/c I closed them down at 10. I’ll go back tomorrow to finish up the few things I have left – I plan on spending about $10 more dollars or so. The steaks alone were worth $22! The best part – Dan gave us $100 for groceries for the 10 days he’s gonna be here along with a menu of “Tahsha’s specialties” that he wants. I don’t know if I should tell him how much I actually spent. TTYL.

    Does McBee let you use Target coupons? I usually go to Wade Hampton or Pelham. WH gave me flack over the Food Lion coupon for eggs. The cashier said, “That is for the Food Lion brand.” I was buying Publix brand. They finally took it to the manager & they said it was fine. I kind of didn’t understand the Target one because even though we don’t have a SuperTarget, they do have a lot of groceries. (I was trying to use a Cheerios coupon.)

    I couldn’t complain too much though – I got about $30 worth of groceries for $10 and that included almost $6 of stuff that rarely has coupons (milk, etc.)

    I also went to the Sav-Mor sale on the 4th. Did you make it?
