This is the new official thread for the Winn-Dixie grocery store chain.

Please note, that the weekly ad will not be 100% completely typed up as far as the meat/produce specials, unless it is a bogo deal. W/D offers a lot of deals on meat and produce (sometimes up to three pages worth) and it would be cluttersome and tiresome to type it completely up.

OT is permitted in this thread. Please keep it minimal if all possible, but I understand that sometimes we have VERY slow weeks @ W/D, so more chit-chat will be happening. I'm okay with that! It's what makes our community here stronger Smilie

Anyone and everyone is welcome to help contribute. I will have the ad typed up and in the wiki Tuesday night, and start the matchups on Wednesday a.m. If you catch a deal, post it!


Thanks! hug

Coupons at Winn Dixie
Unfortunately there is no official coupon policy but here is a copy of an email that I received when I inquired:

Quote :
Please accept my apology but I am unable to send copies of policies.
As far as the use of coupons is concerned, Winn-Dixie will honor its store coupons and
manufacture coupons, these type coupons are useable in any chain where the item is sold.
Winn-Dixie does not honor other store coupons; these type coupons are issued for the
purpose of generating sales in a particular food chain and therefore are only useable in
that chains store, Winn-Dixie would be unable to receive credit for those coupons. There
are also times when Winn-Dixie will double or triple coupons, this is done randomly and
will always be noted in the flyer as well as the store where the promotion is going on.
Other than that coupons are handled per the instructions stated. Of course no outdated or
coupons missing date info are accept.
I hope this information is helpful. Winn-Dixie does appreciate you shopping with us.

Okay,

How about this?

I will do like what is done for Publix, and create a post with a weekly ad, then link to that in the Wiki.

That will free up the Wiki and we can go ahead and do a Clearance section and a Catalina section there. We could also have coupons found at Winn Dixie. There are very few W/D store coupons other than $10/$50, but they have this new "clip free" coupon that comes off when you scan your card. Next time I make it to W/D I will get a list of what is currently out there (or at least at my store).

Also, I know peeps in Publix thread said that the red color was hard to read on the eyes, so let's do a quick poll of what color matchups can be done in? We will only have printables and mq's.

I think the Dark Purple is easy on the eyes, along with maybe the dark blue?
I say stay with Red for MQ's. I don't have an issue reading the red, and that's what is used on the rest of the board. Wink Dark blue for printables sounds good to me. I personally don't like the purple shake head

Hi All...thanks for starting the new WD thread! I also shop Publix mainly, but on occasion find some pretty good deals at WD.

From past experience I can tell you that if you use a BOGO coupon on a product that is on sale(not a BOGO sale) that normally the coupon will deduct the regular price of the item, not the sale price.

Has anyone tried to "roll" the $10 P&G? It says not good on other P&G, but I don't see how that can cause problems kicking out another. Going to try later this afternoon.
I don't believe you will get another. I "discarded" my P&G cats at Publix on the $50 BP gas cards. Worked beautifully! Wink

Quote from shopping addict View Post :
I never studied up on coding of coupons but I think the reason why some of the CG products don't auto deduct or even work is because their upcs don't match the coupon. I also tried to get the mineral makeup with the brush and not only would the coupon not auto deduct, but the register wouldn't accept it at all (even before scanning wd card) and the mgr was called. Long story short, he wasn't going to allow me to use it on that product, nor would he allow me to get 2 products free on a bogo. I thanked him and went down the street to another WD (luckily I was going to be passing it anyway), and that's when I noticed the difference of the upcs and it struck me. So I got the ones that were $11.29 and they auto deducted beautifully. I only had a total of 2 bogo coupons, so got 4 products and nothing else and cashier didn't bat an eye. Got out of there paying $1.59 in tax and got the $7.00 cat, so I'm a happy camper.

So my thinking is that any product that has the same beginning #'s as the #'s on the coupon will auto deduct. I wish I would have thought to look at that at the first store.

I would have preferred to have had the mineral makeup since that is what I use (haven't tried CG though). I'm wondering if I can go back at a later date with the receipt and exchange them. Anyone have any experience with exchanges like that? I'm thinking it really shouldn't be a problem.
Unfortunately this didn't work. I know at RA there is a lot of problems if the barcode doesn't have the "227" as the coupon has. I tried this at W/D with almost every product, but it was hassles! A very great manager took the time to help me out, but I still felt bad for all the time that I tied up Frown

Sorry for another W-D newb question from me, but just trying to learn a new game. Big Grin

I know what a Catalina is. I know what rolling is. I'm a former Wags RR addict. laugh out loud But what kind of Catalinas spit out at W-D? I've heard of the $ off total purchase Qs, now this is a $10 P&G Catalina like a Wags RR/992 (usable on most anything besides the usual alcohol, GCs, etc.)?

lovefashion, could you breakdown your $28.00 in Catalinas for me? I already want to rep you, but need to wait. Smilie

And thanks, sunshinemom, for the answer to the WDQ question!
This is a $10 or a $7 MQ that is a cat, good for $10 or $7 off your next order, on anything except the usual exclusions. Unfortunatly due to the value it DOES require manager key to override, no big deal for me, but may be for others.


Quote from Tipper55 View Post :
I tried at my least favorite store this morning and don't have an answer. I tried the $10 and it beeped; but I also knew the $10 would have eaten into tax, so I quickly stopped her from calling the manager. Tried again using the $7 and it beeped as well and had to stop her from calling the manager again. The cashier just said it was because of being a high dollar coupon, that it always needs manager intervention - which is definitely true for Winn Dixie. However, this manager hates coupons and I didn't feel like arguing.

I'll try a friendlier WD later or I'll just wait for Publix. They're scannable MQs.
Both of mine beeped today too, but it is because of the high value, no problems with the key, it went right through!

You can get overage this way Smilie But! sometimes this does not always work. Really W/D has been a bit hard for me to figure out via overage. Sometimes it works great, othertimes not, now that we have this thread, I will be trying to play more so I can try to learn more.



Now for some news from a VERY reliable source!!!

W/D stores, EVERY, will be going through a MAJOR remodel process! I, for one am very excited about this, because it means lots of changes in store. I hope that the stigma that is currently attached to W/D will become a thing of the past. W/D does have the ability to pull this off, considering their major competitor is Publix, and I think the remodel has their stores looking a lot better than most Publix. A particular thing I like is the curved aisles, very interesting design!

You can check out the new W/D site here [freshcheckedeveryday.com]. You can also view a video that shows a remodeled store here [freshcheckedeveryday.com]

I went and did more transactions today. I had 20 more coupons to use. I went to self checkout and the CS Guy had to stand there and put in his card for every transaction. I bought powders, foundations and blushes all coded 227 and for every one the first coupon went through fine but had to get permission on all for the second coupons to go through. So the problem is you cannot use more than 1 bogo coupon without manager approval. Very nice guy was amazed at the deal and then he looked through the bags and was like this is the makeup I wear. I was like Huh Thinking I heard wrong then he said yep ivory is my color. Teehee So I gave him a couple and he was very happy Big Grin

I guess not all WD registers are set up the same way. I had 2 bogo coupons and they both autodeducted w/o intervention. In this transaction, I had them scan my WD card after the coupons.

With the self checkout I had to scan my winn dixie card after the first item was scanned. Could the card being presented first cause issues?

I've tried scanning the card first and last and it really doesn't seem to matter. You can get overage using two coupons on a BOGO item, but it will automatically ask for the cashier over-ride on SCO. So one time I decided to scan the items first, then the coupons and then the card.... I figured the computer wouldn't notice the overage if it came off after the coupons. That didn't work.

I rolled the $10 P&G several times tonight. The beep is just for being a high dollar coupon.

last night at two different w/d tried to do the covergirl. I purchased the eyeshadow 7.99 and eye liners 7.99, I bought a total of 8 in each tx and manager had to overide each bogo q and I did not get either the 7 or the 10 cat. my daughter purchased the over 30 in foundation 7.99 ea and got the cat and her q's auto deducted. she also did a tx with the more expensive 10xx or 11.xx something and that one auto deducted and got the 10 cat.
