It’s cereal bonanza at Publix! And it’s the perfect timing too, because the kids get off for Christmas break next week, and with four kids in the house they go through a lot of cereal … plus we’re having two boys come to visit for a few days too .. so now there should be something for every taste.

There were several freebies in our cart this week, and even a small money maker. Can’t beat that!

  1. When I attempted to use the Winn Dixie baby club coupons the cashier pointed out Pulix doesn’t accept those because the last line in small print says , Must use rewards card and since public doesn’t have rewards cards they don’t accept those . I’ve used them before but apparently according to two different cashiers there is a notice in the break room

  2. WJ, I am not surprised to hear this. Publix has been changing their coupons policies so much that it is hard to keep up and use coupons at all. I’m not having any problems at my local Publix stores, but once at our old town I had a similar experience. I talked to a manager and the problem was solved. It is so frustrating, when they change their policies. If you have another Publix store around these might work for your there. Good luck!

  3. Yeah i was surprised as if just used some a short while ago. This cashier seemed very proud of his “catch “…I was going to speak to the manager but didn’t want to wait around, next time I see him I’ll ask

  4. LOVE the apps! I use Receiptpal, Shopkick, Receipt Hog, Yaarlo and a new one called Hop. Every little bit helps that’s for sure! 🙂

    Just wish we had a publix in IL, but we dont, i guess i’m thankful for 1 store who will double coupons, even tho their prices are a bit higher and not as much selection…
