Does anyone know if the $3/$10 coupon that is in the Green Advantage flier will cause a problem if I buy 2 Lever 2000 Bar, 8 pk, $4.99 which would be $9.98? TIA
I have been putting all of my unilever in the front of my order. when she has scanned all of those products the cashier and I verify the grand total of uni lever product. tax should be included in that grand total if you do that it will be included in your grand total and it will be over 10 dollars so there should be no problem using the coupon

If the Target q is for the full amount or under they honor the full q. It's when you make overage on the Target q alone because the coupon is higher than the product, like the Bic q that was out this past summer. The q was for $1 off Bic stationary but the pens were only $.50, so they adjusted the coupon down.
Actually I respectfully disagree...that's not the policy. If the MQ makes it free already according to policy you aren't able to get any additional overage by using a CQ for example. However, like we've all talked about most of the time they don't notice, don't bother. It's not until people get abusive on it that they take notice. If they want to keep you as a customer they will be nice to you.

Correct.

Like I said, we've been lucky - that's also why EVERY. SINGLE. PERSON. always puts YMMV or that overage is a gift, not to be expected. If you get it great, if you don't, don't complain.
Quote from camalott4 View Post :
Wow I have never heard of that before. In fact, the matchups on this site have MM next to MQ and CQ/PQ combos. For example, the bogo glade coupins with the bogo TQ and 2 MQs means they would have to adjust the TQ down? This would basically affect every single MM out there since rarely does a MQ by itself mean overage.
YEP...that's exactly it. Most of the time they don't bother adjusting if the amount is small. I think only two times I've had them adjust down and hey, how can you complain when you're still getting the item for free? laugh out loud I had a raincheck the other day that gave overage, but per item it was a little over .20 per item so they didn't bother adjusting things. There comes a point where, if you're a pleasant and reasonable couponer they seem to care more about your experience and will let the little $ slide. At least that's my sense about it after meeting up with a couponer I have seen a few times over the last 5 years or so at Publix. She was complaining at me about the store that is now "cracking down" and how tough it is for her to shop now....well hey, this is the same lady who I used to see getting a cart filled with crystal light (for example) back when they were MM with TQ's (and she probably had like 50+ photocopied TQ and back then they didn't care even). But hey, if you're reasonable they're not going to give you a hard time.

Buy (8) Covergirl Eyeshadow singles ($2.99 each)
Total $35.72

- $5.90 - (2) Free Clairol Herbal Essences conditioner or styler wyb shampoo, max $6.99, excl trial size, SS 9/16
- $8.00 - (8) $1 off CoverGirl or Queen cosmetics, excl beauty tools (Publix coupon), Green Advantage flyer
- $12.00 - (4) $3/2 CoverGirl products, excl trial size, PG 9/30

I did this deal today and was able of find some of the WD coupons. One of he shades of eyeshadow rang up a $1.99 for the life of me I have no clue which one it was. I also added Alba shave cream, it's still ringing up @ $2.99 with the $4/1 coupon a little overage to eat into the total since we don't have a zero oop scenario like we normally do.

I respectfully disagree with your disagreement. laugh out loud I've spoken to a customer service rep from corporate on this very issue in the past. I am only going by what I have been told by corporate.

I never go to WD so I never find those q's. Glad you did! I wonder if the shade is a markdown? You got lucky there. Were you still at the $30 threshold for the P&G deal?

I missed out on the Alba shave cream. Guess I'll have to do a search on that one. Went in today to pick up more free Lipton tea bags! One of the guys was stocking shelves and of course the tea was wiped out, so I asked if he could check in the back. He looked at me like I had two heads when I asked for 8 of them. LMAO

Found the Alba - missed out on that deal.

The WD coupons are in the rack with the normal weekly ad. They had plenty.

The CG said you saved $1 on the receipt.Don't think it was on clearance. Wish I could figure out what color it was laugh out loud dang Publix for not putting UPC codes on their receipts.

Yes, I still made the $30 mark Whee

Just returned from my store and it was already wiped out of Dr. Scholls. Sadwalk Nothing left but the expensive stuff. Cheapest item was $3.79 for the Dr. Scholl's for her. Guess I'll have to wait for them to restock. Good thing the q is good till November.

I did this same deal, but I got the Styling products free (4.99 , so it brought my total up faster! and I had to buy less Covergirl) and I used the WD $1/2 coupon (its only off shampoo/ cond)
I dont know my exact $$ OOP since I got other stuff too so I could use the $10/50 SB coupon (exp yesterday)

If I recall correctly, the gas card coupons used to say something like "Original coupon required for 'each' gas card purchase" or something that seemed to imply that you could do more than one deal per transaction as long as you had the coupons for them. The current coupon says "Original coupon 'and single receipt' for $50 grocery purchase required for each deal", which seems to mean only one gas card per transaction?

I'm sure it depends on your store or cashier, but if the intention here is one per transaction, that's going to make it that much more difficult - not only trying to get those totals up, but then breaking them up into $50 increments. That's one (of many) things I've always liked about Publix, not having to play games and break things up into multiple transactions like you do at other stores to play within their rules. It would be sad if we have to play these games at Publix now for gas cards.

Not sure if anyone posted this earlier. But the Winn-Dixie coupon booklet is available on their website to browse and print in PDF format under their weekly ad section.

Here's the link http://winndixie.mywebgrocer.com/...c=30D17119

I asked my aunt to look for publix coupons in her store for this current week sale, as I sent her a bunch of mqs for the sale... I would look myself if I had access to a publix. She didn't end up finding any.
Not sure I can ask here, but I was wondering if I could ask if I could get someone to send some publix coupon books to her on my behalf? I can pay shipping and fee, or trade if I have something you need.

This thread is amazingly put together, by the way. One of the best in the drugstore forums.. or on SD probably. Dunno how it gets done!
