So, I’d heard from my friend, Tahsha, that she was getting amazing deals on groceries at Publix using her $4/$20 coupons from CVS as well as Walgreens and other pharmacy coupons. However, I was so sad to try my own hand at it, and find out that they did NOT accept pharmacy coupons – only other grocery store competitors like Food Lion, Bloom’s, Bi-Lo, etc.
After doing a little talking to some district managers, store managers, and cashiers, I was pleased to get a call from Stuart at the McBee Station Publix (the downtown one!) telling me that after talking with his district manager about it, they decided that they should take CVS coupons for like items they sale in their store (Groceries and health and beauty items). YIPPEE!! THis means we can use TRIPLE coupons at Publix – Store couons, Manufacturer’s coupons, AND competitors coupons. . .. oh boy. . . can you tell I’m excited?!?!? 🙂
Here’s a roundup of what their current policy is. Remember, this was only confirmed at the McBee station Publix in Greenville, so I’m not sure what the policy is in other stores, but you could always refer them to this store if you’d like! (And anytime you see a “Stuart” walking around, give him a big thank-you!)
*Publix will take competitors coupons like Food Lion, Kroger (if there’s one nearby), and now (at McBee station only) CVS and Walgreens!! Also keep in mind that if you sign up for a “Breeze card” with Bloom’s, you can get some $10/$40 purchase coupons to use as well (these are sent to your mailbox)!
