Shopping at Publix? You might want to read this first!

Quick tips on shopping at Publix:

1) You must buy both items in the BOGO (Buy 1 Get 1 Free) deals to get the free item in Florida. All other states will ring up half price.

2) You can use 1 MFR and 1 Store coupon (Publix or competitor) on each item – Even the Free BOGO items!

3) You only have to buy 1 of the multiples sales to get the sale price, example: 2/$3 or buy 1 for $1.50

4) Publix has a price guarantee, so if something doesn’t ring up the marked price, they will give it to you for free. Another reason to check those receipts before you leave the store.

5) Publix managers dictate which stores they consider competitors so check with your stores customer service for specifics.

6) Some Publix locations will double coupons up to $.50 (Does not apply in Florida)

CVS Coupon Policy

CVS Coupon Policy

What kind of Coupons does CVS accept?

  • Manufacturer Coupons (including Printable Coupons)
  • Store Coupons (In-Ad, CRTs or Purchase Based Coupons)
  • ECBs (CVS Extra Bucks, like Catalina or RR)
You are allowed one manufacturer and one store coupon per item. ECBs are redeemed like a gift card, not a coupon, they may be used in addition to the other 2 coupons.

May I use two coupons on a Buy one Get one Free offer?
Official corporate policy says, “yes!”

Does CVS pay overage?
No, if you have a $0.97 item and a $1.00 off coupon, the register will make an angry beep and your cashier will need to adjust the price of the $1.00 coupon down to $0.97.

There is a downside to CVS they impose limits on their ECB’s but some people get around those limits by having more than one CVS card. I believe that you should have one card per household. Those people who take advantage of those limits are going to ruin it for the rest of us.
