Publix official coupon policy is below.  In addition to this, Publix will automatically double any manufacture coupon that is $0.50 or less (except in Florida).

Publix accepts manufacturers’ coupons (limit one per item), Publix coupons (originals only—no copies), valid Internet coupons, and coupons from nearby competitors identified by each Publix store. (Competitor names are posted at each Publix store.) We will accept coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only. We will not accept percent-off-items or percent-off-total-order coupons. We will only accept coupons for identical merchandise we sell. Acceptance is subject to any restrictions on the coupon, and we reserve the right to limit quantities. Manager approval is needed for individual coupons above $5.00. For a buy-one-get-one free (BOGO) offer, each item is considered a separate sale. We will accept a manufacturer’s coupon and either a Publix or a competitor coupon on the same item. Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor coupon per order. The order total must be equal to or greater than the total purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented.

    Does anyone know if Florida Publix stores will accept a coupon for a free item?
    i.e. If I go BOGO on an item, and have two $0.50/1 coupons for that item, can I do that?

    Pardon me for not including this in my original post. Here’s the actual Publix Promise:

    Q: What happens if a product scans incorrectly during checkout?
    A: Our PUBLX checkout PROMISE guarantees that if during checkout, the scanned price of an item (excluding alcohol and tobacco products) exceeds the shelf price or advertised price, we will give the customer one of that item free. The remaining items will be charged at the lower price.

    Also, often advertised is the “Publix Brand Challenge.” Buy theirs and get ours FREE. “We’re confident that when you compare the Publix brand to the national brand, you’ll like our brand just as much – maybe even more! Just look for the in-store display for this week’s challenge.”

    Further, they have a penny mystery item each week. If you purchase $10 worth of groceries @ Publix you can redeem your penny coupon for the Publix brand mystery item. See their weekly circular for coupon. I have gotten apple juice, coffee, cookies, chips, frozen pizzas, etc. This coupon program is not offered in FL (and possibly other states). Some locations allow the shopper to use one coupon per every $10 in your transaction. This is solely up to the discretion of each individual store location. Any time I am donating to our local food bank, they will especially exercise this discount. I once was able to get 10 jars of peanut butter for ten cents to donate to our local food bank!

    Moreover, Publix offers several FREE “Clubs” and Magazines that offer additional coupons, FREE products, and recipes. Shoppers will also find their FREE Apron’s recipe cards for quick simple meals inside the stores and in their circular. Often, mostly on the weekends, shoppers can sample the meal as it is being cooked and prepared right before their eyes at the Apron’s kiosk inside the Publix store.

    Finally, Publix also actively participates with the UPromise Savings program and honors rain checks.

    I love Publix 

    Don’t forget about the Publix Promise: If the product that you are purchasing rings up incorrectly, it’s FREE. If you realize this after you leave the store, go back; they will refund your money and you get to keep the product.

    I went two days ago and it was the first time I was using Target coupons and I was told I cant use them anymore, they changed the policy. I had asked 4 days prior to using them and was told it was ok. They let me use them that day and then said no more. I couldnt believe it. I really like publix and not fond of Target. I now have to shop in two separate store again, thought it would be easier with just choosing publix.

  8. Kristi says:

    Publix will accept Target coupons if it is considered as a competitor. Our Target is located in the same shopping center therefore they are considered. Just ask at the Customer Service desk at your Publix. They will be happy to let you know.

  9. Ruthie says:

    Does Publix take Target coupons? I keep seeing for Publix deals you have Target coupons listed. Confused?

    I’ve been shopping at my Publix in Altamonte Springs, FL. (Orlando) for 2 years now and they just told me today that corporate is actually supposed to be coming out with an “across the board” coupon policy for their stores. I was also told that they are no longer accepting CVS or any other drugstores as competitor coupons :( but will still take all grocery store’s, including Dollar General, Save-A-Lot, and Family Dollar, as competitor coupons. And the store I go to actually lets us use 1 MF coupon, 1 competitor coupon and 1 store coupon per item; i.e., today I bought 4 packs of Stay free pads @ $3.41 ea = $13.64. I used 2 MF BOGO coupons, 2 MF $1.00 off coupons and 2 store $1.00 off coupons and my total came to $2.82 ($0.71 each instead of $3.41 each!! Today at Publix I was able to get my total down from $72.00 to $43.00 w/coupons. Not quite 50%, but my goal this year is to try to save 50-75% each week; I think I can do it! I love your site, thanks for all the tips/info. I saw part of your show on TLC and some different videos on you-tube and it made me even more excited about coupons and more determined to save as much as I can, thank you!!

    How do you know which stores double and the limit?

    • Krazy CouponLady says:

      All stores that are not in Florida are supposed to double. There is no limit to how many coupons they will double but they have to be for $0.50 or less.

    Thank you so much for starting to cover Publix… now KCL is my one stop shop for couponing!!!

    Central Florida does not consider drug stores as competitors either.

    I did find out recently that they will allow one manufacture and store (including competitors) AND if there is a peelie on the product, they will accept all three coupons. Example: I got $2.99 Truvia 40 ct today for .24 cents (with $1/1 and $1/1 Publix and .75/1 peelie).

    Thanks KCL!

  13. Robin says:

    Sounds like the coupon you are talking about with the Crisco is for a BOGO deal

    Hope that helps!

  14. Nic says:

    I guess I am missing something but there are some of these I don’t understand. For example, the Crisco oil. At $3.89/each with a $1/2. How does that bring them down to $1.45 each? Please help me understand! Thank you!

    • Krazy CouponLady says:

      Robin is right. The Crisco is in the B1G1 sale so buy 2 for $3.89 and then take the $1.00/2 and your total is $2.89 or $1.45 each.

  15. Lindsay M says:

    The publix in N.Alabama do not take drug store coupons any more as they are not viewed as a competitor.

  16. Daria says:

    Thank you very much for posting this! I have been looking all over their website for the Publix coupon policy and could not find a thing! I am very excited to begin my journey of couponing – and I want to thank you for inspiring me! (I saw you on TLC and was absolutely amazed!)
