We’ve been answering questions for Ask I Heart Publix for over three years now, and we’ve definitely found that some questions keep popping up as new couponers write in. So every month we’re going to feature a “Best Of” Ask I Heart Publix, where we post some of our favorite questions and answers from past weeks, months, and years.
Don’t worry….we’ll still be answering the new questions you guys send in, too, so keep sending in those questions! Just remember if we didn’t get to your question this week…we will do our best to cover it another week!!
Don’t forget to look under the “About” tab where you can find the questions and answers from past weeks!
Here are this week’s “Best of” questions:
- How will Publix handle a B1G2 Competitor coupon?
- How do you know all the coupons that you use in the ad? Where do you look them up?
- How do you know what competitor coupons your store will accept?
- How do you know when there’s a good coupon being offered on Facebook?
- When an item that you need to stockpile goes on sale, about how many of that item do you purchase?
And here are the answers!
1. Blythe wants to know: At my Publix, Albertson’s is a competitor, so I am able to use coupons that they have ($5 off $50, ect), which is great. My question is this: Albertson’s circulars often (weekly) include coupons for things like “Buy 1 Get 2 free London Broil, Identical or Lower Weight Only.” I’ve been nervous to try these out, and the last time I asked Customer Service something, they were short with me, it was Friday night rush time, so I’ve been hesitant to ask, but thought I’d ask you. I know Albertson’s hikes their prices up for these types of sales, but Publix won’t.
How will this work, or should I just bite the bullet and ask Customer Service?
Michelle: I am going to defer to Christy on this one as there are no Albertson’s stores in my area. Though, I would guess that you would need to ask your specific store.
Christy: We had a few Albertson’s in my town a few years ago and my Publix accepted them as a competitor (they have since all closed down). I was able to use the B1G2 coupons on certain items – my store required that they carry the exact item that Albertson’s was advertising in the coupon (for example, I couldn’t use coupons for “Angus” meats since Publix doesn’t offer “Angus”), and they would only honor the coupon as a B1G1 rather than a B1G2.
That said, every store may be a little bit different and you are going to have to ask your Customer Service desk about how they will handle those coupons. You may want to plan to ask them on a day or time that you know they are not very busy. I will sometimes “cruise” the Customer Service desk – just walk by a few times and wait to ask my question when they seem the least busy.

Here are this week’s printable store coupons. No Harveys coupons again this week…but if your store accepts Food Lion as a competitor, you are in luck. You can use these coupons with a manufacturer’s coupon to save lots of money.
Remember, per the Publix coupon policy Q&A, Publix will accept a competitor’s coupon for a private label item. They view this as an opportunity for them to introduce customers to Publix brand products.
That Panera Coffee coupon will come in handy for the upcoming BOGO sale!!
Food Lion Coupons (exp 3/18)
$1/$5 purchase in the frozen food department
$1.50/1 Panera Bread 100% Arabica Coffee
$0.50/1 Food Lion or my essentials™ French Fries
$0.45/1 my essentials™ Napkins (250 ct or larger)

The Publix mystery item coupon is valid for one day only – the day your ad begins (usually either Wednesday or Thursday). The actual coupon can be found in your local newspaper on your penny item day!
As a reminder, Florida and other coastal areas do not participate in the penny item promotion. Please feel free to leave a comment below if your store offers a different item!

I know many times I struggle with what brand to choose. Often a sale or a coupon/salecombination make that an easier decision…but what about those times when you need an item and there is not a sale? Do you grab the house brand or pay more and get the national brand? More importantly, is there really a difference in taste?
This week we decided to taste test Publix cheese. This might be the most requested Try Me Tuesday item that I have had so far. All of my guys were happy to do the taste test this week…I didn’t complain either!
Publix Medium Cheddar Cheese, 8 0z (8 servings), $3.49 (reg price)

- Publix – 2
- Kraft – 1
- No Preference – 1
I was surprised that we all had a different reason for our choice. Here are the overall impressions that we had with the cheeses. The Kraft cheese was definitely more “creamy.” The texture was smoother than the Publix brand. My oldest son chose Kraft saying it tastes more like what he’d want on mac & cheese.
My husband preferred the texture of the Kraft but said the Publix tasted better. So he chose “B” (Publix) as the winner of the taste test. He said that the Publix cheese had a sharper flavor which is what he’d want in a medium cheddar.
I thought the Publix was the winner from a taste perspective too and chose that as my favorite. I honestly didn’t even notice the texture until my husband pointed it out. Once he did and I took another bite, he was absolutely correct in that the “A” (Kraft) was super creamy while the “B” (Publix) was more like an aged cheese.
Now the price is a hard one as both of these are on sale pretty frequently. In the upcoming ad, the Kraft will be $1.50 (after coupon & sale) and the Publix $2.50. Publix has a lower regular price. It’s a small win but I am going to give the win to the Publix cheese this week. Based on flavor alone, it was the winner at my house.
Now, if you are big on texture – you might want to try them both. I had hoped to have time to melt the cheese but my son had a musical performance tonight and I just ran out of time. I may have to do a second Try Me Tuesday to check and see how they melt to see if that changes my rating.
I know lots of you guys have tried both – which one is the winner at your house?
