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:

  1. What do I do if a Digital Coupon comes off my total when I’ve already used a paper coupon for the same item?
  2. Why can’t I load a Upromise One or Many Offer that is still valid to my card?
  3. Can I do a Upromise One or Many Offer twice and get two deposits?
  4. For rebates – am I limited to one per address- or one per person per address?
  5. What’s the deal with the Hopster coupons I see in the weekly matchups?

And here are the answers!

1. Jenn wants to know: When I was checking over my receipt this past weekend, I noticed that a Publix Digital Coupon came off my total and I had already used a paper coupon for that same item.  I know that you’re not supposed to be able to use paper and digital coupons  for the same item. Is there any way to fix this with my customer service desk?

Christy: I’ve noticed this happen from time to time too. I think the system just gets “confused” sometimes even though it’s not supposed to. You might want to just take your receipt in to your Customer Service Desk and ask if there is anything you should do to let them know when this happens…but I think it is just a random glitch that hopefully they will work out.

Michelle: I noticed it recently too. I am actually kinda glad to hear that I am not the only one. Mine was a doozy as I got an extra $5 with the B2G1 Digiorno coupon/digital coupon. I thought maybe the register got confused as it was a multiple purchase coupon. I had thought to talk to my store to see if they had any insight on this issue. Have you guys noticed that it’s a particular type of coupon?

Have you heard anything about this?

Christy: This surprised me a bit, but I’d love to see Publix continue to expand. Frankly, I think Publix should be in all 50 states :D. Commenters, if you have heard anything about this, let us know!

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:

  1. What gas stations are the gas cards (for the Gas Card Deal) valid at?
  2. What items count toward the $50 required for the gas card deal?
  3. Do you know if Publix plans to offer their store coupons as digital coupons?

  5. Does Publix do special orders (ie, bulk orders) for sale items?

And here are the answers!

1. Aymie wants to know: What gas stations are the gas cards (for the Gas Card Deal) valid at? I get  my gas at Bjs or Costco normally…will this really save me money?

Christy: You will have to check which cards your store carries – mine generally have BP, Shell, Hess, and sometimes others. It could be that you will pay a bit more per gallon with these regional and national stations…you will have to do the math and see if it works for you.

Michelle: As Christy said, the types of cards will vary based on the gas stations in the area. Gas prices usually don’t vary too much so that $10 discount is going to be hard to beat.

Each week my buddy Christy and I have a little coupon question and answer session here on Ask I Heart Publix. Keep sending in those questions – we love to answer them! Just remember if we didn’t get to your question this week…we will do our best to cover it another week!!

Remember–there is a tab at the top of the site under “About” titled “Ask I Heart Publix” where you can find the questions and answers from past weeks!

Here are this week’s questions:

  1. Are many of the Publix sale items regional?
  2. Will Publix take a coupon I’ve forgotten along with my receipt?
  3. Do you have a rule for how many of your giveaways a person can win in a certain period?
  4. Is there a  way to redeem Upromise offers after the fact?
  5. Can I use Visa gift cards to make my own gas card deal?

And here are the answers!

1. Blair wants to know: A lot of times I go in to my local Publix to shop with my list and coupons I’ve made using your website and matchups, and when I get there several of the items that were supposedly BOGO or on sale, are not. Two recent examples are Blue Bell Ice Cream and Friendship Sour Cream. What’s up with that – are a lot of Publix sale items regional?

Christy: Occasionally there will be regional differences in Publix sale items, but for the most part I think they are usually very similar from area to area. I think a number of people commented that the Friendship Sour Cream BOGO seemed to be regional but I’m not sure about Blue Bell. I live in North Central Florida and I have been using Michelle’s Publix lists for years and I can only think of a handful of sale items that I didn’t find at my store over all the time I’ve been using her lists.

I will note that even if I don’t find a sale sign for an item that should be on sale, I will have my cashier or customer service price check the item for me. Often the sign has just gotten moved accidentally or perhaps it was it was missed when they were putting signs up.

Michelle: Yep, there may be some regional difference but there will not typically be many if any in a given week. I always put that little notation at the top of each ad. I try to note the differences when folks let me know but there is just no way on earth I can check all the different ads in each area. So–if you see a regional difference…let me know and I will make the addition or notation.

Here are this week’s “Best of” questions:

  1. Has Publix changed their policy about accepting coupons after the fact when you bring in your receipt?

  3. My store told me they can take manufacturer’s coupons within a day or two of expiration…is this true?
  4. I always enter your giveaways but I never win. Am I just unlucky??
  5. How does Publix choose which stores to accept as competitors?

And here are the answers!

1. Susana wants to know: Has Publix changed their policy about accepting your coupons after the fact if you forget them at the time of purchase? 

Michelle: I haven’t heard of any changes. Often some stores will make changes as they see fit based on customer activities but as far as I know there have not been any corporate wide changes.

Christy: I haven’t heard anything about this, but I would be curious to know if anyone has had Publix refuse to accept a coupon after the fact. My stores have never  been anything but accommodating if I occasionally forget a coupon and bring it in with my receipt during the following week.

Here are this week’s “Best of” questions:

  1. Can I use a paper coupon and a Upromise eCoupon on a single item?
  2. Do ibotta offers adjust in value depending on how many I buy?
  3. How does Publix choose which stores to accept as competitors?
  4. How can I figure out what percentage I’ve saved?
  5. What are your stockpile “rules”?

And here are the answers!

1. Becky wants to know: I just started using Upromise, and I’m wondering if I can redeem a Upromise eCoupon along with a manufacturer’s coupon on a single item. 

Michelle: You can get cash back from Upromise and use a paper coupon at the register on one item. Like ibotta, Upromise gives you cash back and does not discount an item at checkout. Is this the right answer…I honestly don’t know. I have looked all over the Upromise site and could not find this question addressed. Let me know if I missed it. I have always used coupons with Upromise and never had issues getting my deposit.

Publix QA 2 Coupon Question And Answer   Ask I Heart Publix 5/7

Each week my buddy Christy and I have a little coupon question and answer session here on Ask I Heart Publix. Keep sending in those questions – we love to answer them! Just remember if we didn’t get to your question this week…we will do our best to cover it another week!!

Remember–there is a tab at the top of the site under “About” titled “Ask I Heart Publix” where you can find the questions and answers from past weeks!

Here are this week’s questions:

  1. Are there limits to how many Advantage Buy coupon deals I can grab?
  2. How much do you budget each week or month for meat and produce?
  3. Can I use a competitor coupon with the Colgate Publix gift card offer?
  4. If we rarely see a sale on at item, should I buy a year’s worth when it does go on sale?
  5. I’m embarrassed when I pick up a bunch of free or moneymaker items. Should I space those purchases out?

And here are the answers!

1. Chelsea wants to know: I’m loving the free deals in the new Grocery Advantage Buy flyer. Is there a limit to how many deals I can grab with Advantage Buy Publix coupons?

Christy: I believe that this will depend on your store. One nearby store in my area has no limits at all on deals, and another store about 5 miles away that enforces a limit of 10 like items per transaction. So I would ask at your customer service desk to be sure.

Michelle: Yep–this is going to be one that will vary by store. As you will notice in most all of the ads there is wording that “Quantity Limits May Apply”.  Some stores have set limits to ensure that everyone gets a chance to partake in the deals. Other stores that are not hit as hard by couponers may not really care. It’s best to ask at your store if you plan on getting a large amount of a particular item.
