Publix Information

  • Publix's Weekly Sale runs Wednesday to Tuesday
  • You can visit the Publix forum on Hot Coupon World for the current sales week thread. They have coupon match ups in the first post to help take the guess work out of it. Most Mondays the next weeks ad is posted ahead of time which is great because you have more time to find coupons!
  • Publix's Yellow Advantage Flyer: This sale is mainly food items and the sale runs from approximately the 6th of the month to the 5th of the following month. The flyer is usually released in the Sunday paper and you can also pick up multiple copies in the turnstyle (the rotating permanent display located either in the lobby or just inside the door). It includes a list of the items on sale as well as store coupons and manufacture coupons.
  • Publix's Green Advantage Flyer: It is non food items and the sale runs from around the 20th of the month to the 19th of the next month. The flyer is usually released in the Sunday paper and you can also pick up multiple copies in the turnstyle (the rotating permanent display located either in the lobby or just inside the door). It includes a list of the items on sale as well as store coupons and manufacture coupons.
  • Publix's Penny Item: Located within your Sunday paper is a coupon for a mystery penny item at Publix. You must purchase at least $10 in groceries to be eligible for the penny item. This total is before coupons! You can purchase the penny item only on Sunday and Monday and it's limited to one per customer. You don't have to rush to the store to get the item. If they run out of stock they will substitute and sometimes the substituted product is better! There is a sign located on either their Sunday newspaper display or at the service desk that lists the week's penny item. Or you can check this thread each Sunday.

Using Coupons at Publix:

  • In order to save the most money at Publix you need to combine sales with coupons and buy enough to last you from one sale to the next.
  • Publix will accept a manufacture coupon and a Publix coupon per item.
  • Some Publix stores will accept competitor coupons. Call your store ahead of time to see if they accept them. (FYI: I know the Publix in Northport does not take competitor coupons, but I have heard that the Publix by the river will take Target coupons)
  • Publix doubles all coupons up to $0.50 (say you have a coupon for $0.50 off a gallon of milk, Publix will automatically deduct $1.00)
  • When Publix has a B1G1 Sale then the price is half the original price. You do not have to buy 2 of the item to get the discounted price.
  • If you are charged wrong, Publix has a Price Right Guarantee. If during checkout, the scanned price of an item exceeds the shelf price or advertised price, they will give the customer one of that item free. The remaining items will be charged at the lower price.
  • If an item is out of stock, Publix will gladly write you a rain check. Just visit the service desk on your way out the door. Make sure you ask them how long you have to use the rainchecks.
