Some things that make Publix so GREAT!
Buy One Get One Sale(BOGO): One of the great deals at Publix is the Buy 1 Get 1 sale. The products actually ring up as half off so you can choose to just buy 1 or 2. In a B1G1 sale, you can use 2 manufacturer coupons, one for each item. PLUS you can use a store coupon if there is one available. Here is what a BOGO coupon with a Publix BOGO sale would look like:
Minute Maid $4.00 each on sale BOGO($2.00 each)
Buy 2=$4.00(each one rings up $2.00)
Use BOGO coupon (will subtract $2)
Final Price: $1.00 each or $2.00 for both
Doubling Coupons: Publix will double any manufacturer coupon up to $0.50 any day of the week. There are no limits on the number of coupons they will double.
Publix Penny Item: Publix offers a different “mystery item” for $0.01 in the Wednesday or Thursday ad in Alabama, most of Georgia and Tennessee, and South Carolina, but not in Florida. To get the penny item, you need to come in on Wednesday(some areas) or Thursday(some areas) with the penny item coupon from the ad and you will need to spend a minimum of $10 on your shopping order (excluding alcohol, money orders, postage stamps, gift cards, and prescriptions). The $10 is calculated using your before coupon total. The item rings up at regular price then the coupon subtracts all but a penny of the price. This coupon will usually state “Limit one deal per coupon per customer”.
NOTE: Publix stores in the Flordia area do not double coupons. Also, in a BOGO sale in Flordia you must buy both items, it’s a true “Buy 1, Get 1 Free Sale”.
