My 9/26 Publix Trip – $71.81 for $18.14 or 75% Off

Today for the very first time I had a problem using a Target Market Pantry cheese coupon on a Publix cheese product so when the cashier wouldn’t take it I very politely explained that their coupon policy specifically states they will “accept a coupon for a competitor’s private label product” and she went and asked the manager, but he also refused to take the coupon. I’ve learned to carry printouts of store coupon policies but I didn’t have it on me so I went ahead and checked out then grabbed the policy from the car and went back inside to speak to the manager again. The people at my store are super nice and the manager apologized profusely, gave me the money back and told me that they’d do better next time. Unfortunately he then walked right past the cashier without informing her so I’ll be sure to carry the policy inside with me next time and I wanted to take this opportunity to remind you guys that it’s a good idea to carry printouts of coupon policies for your favorite stores with you because you’ll be glad to have it if and when you do need to whip it out. Today I bought $71.81 worth of groceries for $18.14, or 75% off after coupons, $5/$30 Winn Dixie coupon and $13 RR. Here are the deals:

  1. I can’t believe your store still accepts RR from Walgreens. You are so lucky!

  2. I’m sad to hear that your store doesn’t Kelly! Our store policy has changed SO many times over the last couple of years that it might not hurt to ask again at yours to see if they’ve starting accepting RR again.
