The Publix Thread is a group of Publix peeps who are a wonderful collection of couponers utilizing this thread to share ideas, sales, coupon combinations and fabulous finds.

Just A Few Notes:

* This thread will be updated and maintained regularly by multiple users.

* This is a group effort.

* Please no ethical discussions or debates (i.e. food stamps, world peace, etc.) Take this to the Lounge if you feel that strongly about it

* Try to stay on topic as much as possible.

* Take conversations regarding specific area competitors (Kroger, Winn Dixie, SweetBay, Food Lion, etc) to Chat.

WTF did I just read in a Publix thread of all places.

Who emails billion dollar corporations for matchup mistakes?

Let's go back to being neighborly.

You're telling people to read and UNDERSTAND, but I think you fail to understand how these scenarios work. No one is saying to use the WD corn q. shake head

Buy 2: Mills Cheerios Cereal, 10.9 to 14 oz box, (Honey Nut pictured), save up to 3.69
Buy 2: Bananas @.60 each
Buy 2: I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spread, 15 oz or 2 pk 7.5 oz tub, or 16 oz box, or Spray 8 oz bottle, save up to 2.49

The Qs you want to use for this scenario are:

(2) $.85/1 General Mills Honey Nut Cheerios Medley Crunch cereal printable [pillsbury.com]
(1) $1/2 Fresh Produce WYB I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray, any (DND) (Maximum of 2 identical coupons allowed in same shopping trip) - Hangtag (exp 10/31/2013

(1) $2 off Bananas, strawberries or blueberries wyb (2) General Mills Cheerios 10.9 oz + (Publix coupon), Publix Grocery flyer
(2) $1/1 I Can't Believe It's Not Butter Product, any (Publix Coupon) - 06-30-13 RP Insert (exp 7/18/2013), Best Meals Happen at Home emailed coupon


So, let's break this down even further.... you are buying 6 products, and using 3 MQs and 3 PQs. Since Publix allows stacking of MQs and PQs, you could theoretically use a total of 12 Qs (if they were all $X/1). You would use 2 MQs for the TWO BOXES of cereal, 1 PQ and 1 MQ for the TWO bananas, and 2 PQs for the TWO ICBINB.

Just where exactly is the problem? Publix policy does in fact state they allow overage. I don't see anyone trying use the WD Corn Q on bananas. Don't know where in the world you came up with that???

Why don't you post YOUR email to Publix and let's see what hair brained scenario you presented them with so that they would have no choice to say what they did. I noticed you only posted their response. Convenient.


Again, I urge YOU to read carefully and make sure YOU understand how her scenario may possibly work. Once you've done exactly that, then answer me where in the world she came up with that "Buy 2 (and lets face it we are already buying Bananas (using a PQ), use 2 MQ and 2 PQ= $1.51MM" from her original post.

Have fun with the reading! Just don't tell me it's a matchup mistake. How convenient!

I've read the Publix threads for a decade now and it's certainly not done on purpose, that's not how they roll around here. It's very possible they have not physically seen the Q and assumed it just said "produce" - but whatever, really, let it go.

Anyway to get back on topic, you can use the Q to try this corn http://amaizesweetcorn.com which is what I am going to do because people are claiming it's very good.

Think you are the one with a comprehension problem. OlMissgal summed it up well but I guess it still won't sink in for you.

The bananas have a PQ applied to them, they are eligible to have a MQ applied. So the MQ applied is the $1/2 ICBINB.

The PQ for the bananas is because of the cereal, the ICBINB is still eligible to have the PQ specifically for ICBINB applied to them.

The MQs for the cereal are not affected by any of the above.

You have royally failed the Coupon Police Academy and need to go back to boot camp. But I guess to make up for your shortcomings you have to pester Publix with wrong facts.

Quote from DeDino View Post :
For obvious reasons, I have contacted Publix for possible abuse of coupons in above quote. Here's the response from Publix. And I will contact them each and every time I see something suspicious posted in this thread. Thank you all!


Dear XXXXXXX,


Thank you for taking the time to contact us with your question and allowing us the opportunity to serve you. We always enjoy hearing from our customers, and we appreciate the trust you have placed in us as your grocer of choice.

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. The information given is not the way Publix Coupon Policy would work. If anyone presents these to the store, the cashiers and managers would not allow these.

The $2.00 off Bananas, Strawberries, or Blueberries coupon is up to $2.00 off. If the produce does not equal the $2.00 the coupon would only be good up to the amount actually charged for them.

Regarding the requirement of buying corn to get $1 off of the I Can’t believe it’s not butter. The bananas would not meet that requirement. Only corn would count towards that coupon. We would also have to see what the stipulations on the coupon said as to the amount of corn that had to be purchased to use the coupon.

Thank you again for bringing this to our attention. Our stores will catch these and deal with them at the registers when the customers check out.

We hope we have answered your question to your satisfaction. Should you have additional follow up, please do not hesitate to contact our customer care specialist at 1-800-242-1227. You may also contact us via email at www.publix.com/contact or write us at Publix Super Markets, Inc., P.O. Box 407, Lakeland, FL 33802, ATTN: Customer Care. Please be sure to reference your case identification number. We look forward to hearing from you again soon.


Sincerely,
Axxxxx
Customer Care
Actually they are not too obvious to me, I can do only one thing and that is to READ the coupon, If the coupon states, Save $2.00 on bananas WYB 2 cheerios, that is how I take it, now if the coupon said save $2.00 wyb $2.00 or more of bananas wyb 2 cheerios, I could have changed my sceanrio to say so...
As far as the ICBINB coupon, i made a mistake, I should have said use 1 MQ and 2 PQs....
and YOU also made a mistake,, you should have brought it to my attention, so I could have fixed it.
I don't understand why you continually ask for trouble, and you can not allow this community to run smoothly.

Rerminder that the current Health & Beauty Flyer expires today.

Please ignore the troll. He's been here and posted ill will and discontent in the past.

He's been banned for a few weeks because of his posting, but somehow he always crawls out from under the bridge to troll again.

Use your Qs the way your store has allowed you to use them and sleep with a clear conscience.

Quote from DeDino View Post :
A daughter defending her mother is, after all, a rather honorable deed. I won't blame her.

An easy task for you: show me how to justify her claim "Buy 2 (and lets face it we are already buying Bananas (using a PQ), use 2 MQ and 2 PQ= $1.51MM" from her initial post?
You are either totally unwilling to apologize for YOUR mistake or are incredibly dense or just like to argue for argument's sake. My guess it's a combo of unwilling to admit a mistake and wanting to argue so I have no intentions of humoring you any further.

In case it's the incredibly dense part..........."Buy 2 (and lets face it we are already buying Bananas (using a PQ),<-------using a PQ for the bananas because of buying cereal use 2 MQ<---------should be one $1/2 MQ for the ICBINB and 2 PQ<------ 2-$1 PQs for ICBINB= $1.51MM" No overlapping/double dipping coupons on items anywhere in this scenario. Have no idea why it isn't easier to ask a question, ask to explain it rather than accusing someone of fraud, coupon abuse and calling Publix, hence you obviously have some shortcomings somewhere.

Good day, good bye permanently, and good luck in your daily endeavors, cause you certainly need it.

All I'm going to say is this forum isn't run by Publix. It's Slickdeals and the users do the work here, all volunteer efforts. People do make mistakes.Be thankful there are wonderful people that take the time to bring us the deals in the first place.

The scenarios and coupons are posted. It's up to the shopper to use them correctly and we are not here to police anyone's coupon use. Every store differs in how they accept coupons and everyone coupons differently.

Why would anyone butt into other peoples business and go to a corporation like a little tattle tale because they don't like the way a scenario is written out? I really can't grasp that. Just do your deals the way you see them to be correct and leave everyone else alone. Why is that so hard for you to understand? The people at corporate are not going to send a memo to 1,000 plus stores over an email sent from one person unless there is something terribly wrong going on.

Just stating the facts, nothing personal Nono2

Agreed with everything you stated. nod

I personally want to THANK Ms. A for taking the little time she had while on vacation to do those scenarios. I know it takes a lot of time to do what we do around here and I appreciate it. I know I make mistakes all the time on my match ups and appreciate the community bringing it to my attention so I can fix them. No one here ever intentionally misuses coupons. It takes a troll to do what Dedino does and frankly I feel sad for you, you sad little man. Get a life all ready.

Because rather than being a productive member who contributes something other than his philosophical beliefs, he'd rather condemn us all because we don't see black & white like he does. It's not just us by the way, he didn't like an answer Publix gave him on the FB page, so he kept asking and kept asking until he got an answer that agreed with his viewpoint.

I'm sure Tizzy would jump over the moon if DeDino volunteered to do the matchups and I'm sure Ms.Attitude would do cartwheels if DeDino would volunteer to do the Dealz n Stealz.

If he actually wasn't so hell-bent on me vs. the world, he would've seen that Ms.A. was ON VACATION and in a HURRY when she did the D&S and that YES SHE MADE A MISTAKE.

I don't think anyone would object if DeDino would jump on in to post flyers, post ads, post deal scenarios, post great finds, post matchups, etc.

Mine took 2 days to show up to DH's account (that's who I shared with.) Come to think of it, I don't think my account received it. Now I have to go check.

There shows your deeply flawed and very troubling reasoning ability. Don't you feel your "hence" is ROYALLY laughable?

In case you didn't know (my belief is you don't wanna know), I asked a question, presented my view LAST TIME. And I got jumpped on by people like you. When I kept reasoning, they launched a personal attack. When I continued reasoning, I got warned and banned. Btw, MsAttitude is the one who creatively brought this thing to a whole new level by initiating phonecalls to corporate Publix, to prove a point when her side were obviously losing their argument.

Guess now there's no turn-back.
You obviously don't like the way this forum is set up and run. Perhaps you should find one more to your liking, there are lots more to choose from.
