As of October 1st, 2014 the Publix coupon policy has changed. You can read the full coupon policy here but I’ve highlighted the major changes below.
- We limit coupon redemption to eight of the same coupons per day, per household.
Not a bad deal if you ask me. You don’t really need more than 8 of an item since most items and coupons reappear within a 8 – 12 week cycle. If you need more than 8 of an item, you can return the next day and get more.
- Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor’s coupon per day, per household. The total order before coupons must be equal to or greater than the combined purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented. We consider competitor’s coupons for dollars off groups of items to be a dollars-off-total-order coupon and will only allow one per day, per household.
So what does this mean? You can use a Publix dollars off coupon (for example: $3.00 off $15.00 purchase Publix coupon) with a competitor’s dollars off coupon (for example: $5.00 off $50.00 purchase Winn Dixie coupon) but the total amount purchased before the coupons are applied must be at least combined amount required of both coupons (for example: $15.00 Publix purchase plus $50.00 Winn Dixie purchase – your total purchase must be at least $65.00).
- Money due back to the customer at the end of a transaction involving coupons will only be provided on a Publix gift card.
Hey, you can still make a profit and that doesn’t happen at most other stores! If you have a negative balance after coupons are applied, that balance will be put on a Publix gift card. Yeah!!
