Tips for Shopping at Publix

Every grocery store/drug store/superstore has a different system that you must learn in order to maximize your savings. Here are a few tips for shopping at Publix:

  1. Publix has weekly and monthly circulars. The weekly circular runs from Wednesday through Tuesday. There are 2 monthly circulars: one for beauty products/medicines and one for food/household items. All of these circulars can be picked up at the front of the store.
  2. Publix doubles all coupons up to 50 cents. They do this automatically; you do not have to ask.
  3. Publix accepts competitor coupons. The coupons can be any coupon from another grocery store, drug store, or superstore.
  4. Publix allows 1 coupon for every B1G1 item purchased. The B1G1 items ring up half price; therefore, you can use one coupon for each item purchased. For example, if Cheerios are B1G1 and the original price is $4.99, the 1st box will ring up as $2.50 and the 2nd box as $2.49. If you have two 50 cent coupons, you can use one for each. Let me show you what that would look like: $2.50 – $1.00 (the 50 cent coupon will double) = $1.50; $2.49 – $1.00 = $1.49. You will get both boxes for $2.99!
  5. Publix accepts stacked coupons (this is true for all stores – as far as I know). You can use a manufacturer coupon and a store coupon together. Or, you could use a manufacturer coupon, a store coupon, and a competitor coupon all at the same time. For example, Walgreen’s has a coupon out right now for $2.50 off Colgate toothpaste 4oz, and there is manufacturer coupon for $1.50 off Colgate toothpaste from the March All You. The price for 4oz Colgate toothpaste at Publix is $3.55. I used both coupons together, and they paid me $0.45 cents (not really, but $0.45 cents extra was taken off my total).

So, there you have it! Let me know if you have any other tips for shopping at Publix!

    I wasn’t that Publix doubles coupons. Thanks for the info! I am an avid coupon user but I tend to shop at Wal-Mart for most items since their prices tend to be lower.

      I agree, Wal-Mart’s prices are cheaper than the regular prices at Publix. But, since Publix doubles coupons, accepts competitor coupons, and has great B1G1 deals, I have MUCH better savings at Publix! Thanks for the comment! It’s good to hear from you!

  2. Wow. That absolutely blows my mind. Thank you, and I am bookmarking this site immediately and sending it to everyone I know.
