Publix Cracking Down On Coupon Crazed Shoppers
LAKELAND (CBS4) – Shoppers who love to use more than one coupon on an item for big discounts when shopping at Publix will be disappointed to learn that the supermarket giant has changed its policy.
The Lakeland-based grocery chain has instructed its stores to only accept 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.
Stores will continue to accept coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only.
They will no longer, however, accept percent-off-items or percent-off-total-order coupons.
Manager approval will be needed for individual coupons above $5.00. For a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) offer, each item is considered a separate sale and the company reserves the right to limit quantities.
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.
