This week I thought we'd talk about coupon stacking.
One of the fabulous ways to save at Publix is by pairing a store coupon and a manufacturer's coupon. The additional savings can often score us some fantastic deals. I think this is the most exciting news for folks new to couponing at Publix. I get several coupons per week from new couponers wanting to verify that they can actually use two coupons on one item at Publix...it really is a very exciting discovery!
Before Publix implemented a written policy, some stores allowed you to use a manufacturer's coupon, Publix coupon as well as a competitor store coupon on one item. This is no longer possible since the Publix coupon policy on Publix.com specifically addresses this:
Q: Can a store coupon, competitor coupon, and manufacturer’s coupon all be used for one item?
A: No. A manufacturer’s coupon can be combined with a Publix coupon or with a competitor’s coupon, but not both.
Every once in a while, I see a comment here on the site suggesting that folks can use a Publix coupon and a competitor coupon together. Hopefully seeing the policy will help folks see that you have to choose one or the other.
Remember, each store will have a specific list of competitor coupons that they allow to be used. If you are unsure about what competitors are accepted just stop by the customer service desk and they will be able to give you the scoop.
