I couldn't find RP in the Sun-Sentinel at Publix today either. Frown
I usually don't have a problem with the Saturday Miami Heralds which have all the ads and Qs and are only $0.50...although a few weeks back mine were missing the RP insert...grrrrr.

UGHHH.. OH MY GOODNESS!! are you serious?? lol!!! I wanna know the name of the manager you talked to.. i went in there one night,, talked to TWO different manager, told me no, no, no, no, they are not a competitor.. blah blah.. and i was trying to explain but they would not hear it.. PLEASE do send that name pm to me.. and do you know when they work!!!. Thankkkks and mind you this was just two weeks ago...
I talked to Megan and she even brought the Q back to the office to get higher up approval. She always works on Thursday eves. She initialed the coupon so the register clerk wouldn't have a problem. It turned out I had too many coupons in my order so it required manager override, and Allyson (great cashier) called over one of the guys "Cole" who had override privileges and he entered it as a competitor even though I told him it would scan.

Just so you know -- the drivers don't stuff the inserts for the Herald -- the inserts are bundled together with the travel section wrapped around them -- here in Miami they are all done by Goodwill workers and the drivers have to pick them up from the Goodwill warehouse and then place the entire bundle into the papers that they pick up from the Herald. There's a second set of inserts that gets bundled with the Parade magazine -- that set is bundled at the Herald warehouse. That one doesn't usually have coupon inserts, but about a month ago, just for one Sunday, they split them up between the two bundles.

The drivers don't get stacks of coupon inserts -- so if all the SS or RP are missing in a route either: 1) the driver(s) removed them all 2) they were never there in the first place because the people bundling them didn't put them in.
saw this the other day regarding why we are not getting certain coupons...

Can someone in an area that doubles explain to me how it works? I'm in Florida, land of no doubles and true BOGO's. I'd definitely appreciate a quick run down of the differences.

Ha! They mention 330,000 distribution in that video - staggering.
I wonder how many of the over quarter million Qs go to waste in that area! EEK!

I got your covered (hopefully)!
In the area where Publix stores doubles MQs:
1) the value of an MQ eligible for doubling is equal or less than $.50
- e.g. an MQ of $.35/1 or $.50/2 will be doubled to $.70/1 and $1.00/2, respectively
- The suckie coupons are those for $.55/1 because they can't be doubled.
- It now appears that so Publix stores are doing the "double suppressed" function. If a coupon states "DND," from time to time, people report that their MQs do not get doubled at the register system.
- If an item value is $.60 and you have a coupon of $.50/1 (which doesn't say "DND"), in theory, you can get an overage of $.40 with your MQ doubled to $1.00. However, I have had cashier who will suppressed the doubling and manually enter $.60/1 for the coupon value. So, the item will be free, instead of a mm.

2) BOGO items ring up as 50% and 50% (as opposed to 100% and 0)

3) there are weekly Mystery items (or Penny Items) of Publx products.

Sadwalk No ad this morning.

I was there at 8 (in the Sleet) and the truck got lost, so I beat the produce truck to the store. Sleet changed over to snow while I patiently waited. They sent Quention (sack boy) to the back to bring them up and he couldn't find them. Sent the grocery manager back too and he couldn't find it either. I was there for over an hour :twiddlingthumbsmiley:

Snowflakes were half dollar and golf ball sized (Beautiful!).

I'm gonna go watch my niece play again this coming weekend, so there won't be an ad from me next monday either.

Where did you see this?

I still have some great Kashi peelies from Target but they expire in either March or April. Hope our stores would have this.

On another note, I do not see any tear pad of Lays today at the Snack aisle.
Sorry I missed this -- been working and not on SD.

This was set up on a Kashi stand alone stand in the deli area, near the coolers that house the hummus and more expensive cheeses in the Oviedo HS Publix.

The stands are still there at my Publix, but the coupons are not.

For my Kroger and Publix friends - - - Last week when I was clicking all over the Internet, I ran across a coupon book you could sign up for. It was from Save a Lot Grocery Store. I had never even heard of this store, but after doing a store locater search came to find out there are a few about 45 minutes from where I live. Who knew!! I signed up for the book on Thursday and it came in the mail on Saturday. I was shocked - That was fast! Especially in the land of coupon books!! It has some pretty good coupons in it. They are all Manufacturer Coupons for P&G Products and expire March 30, 2010. The book contains:

$.75 off any one Duracell batteries
$.75 off any one Crest toothpaste
$.50 off any one Old Spice antiperspirant or deodorant
$.50 off any one Secret
$1 off any one Tampax
$.75 off any one Always Ultra Thin

$.75 off any one Downy fabric softener

Sign up for the book here: http://save-a-lot.com/p-and-g-booklet-sign-up

When I was looking for the link again to post this, I discovered that you can buy these on e-bay!!! They are .99 cents plus .69 cents postage. Are you kidding me?? Please don't pay for it!!! http://cgi.ebay.com/$15-Coupon-Savings-book-from-Save-a-Lot-food-stores-_W0QQitemZ230432868865QQcmdZViewItemQQimsxZ20100205?IMSfp=TL100205053010r22792

How much is the Miami Herald on Sunday now ?

I get the Sun Sentinel delivered here in south FL. It was missing the P&G insert. I bought several from those dispensers, and they had a different version of the SmartSource insert, it was missing some premium coupons like the one I really wanted for the $3/1 Schick disposables. Im at a loss as to what to do. Frown

My neighbour who gets the Miami Herald delivered was missing all of the P&G coupons as well (for eg., the $4 off Gillette Fusion) Frown

Has this been mentioned?
Some publix stores are giving a $10 gift card when you buy a H1N1 shot for $10.
So it's free (if you want the shot).

If it's the shot and not the live nasal spray, I might actually do it.
