Yesterday I stopped into a Publix store while running some errands and I finally found the Publix/ConAgra Stock Up for Summer Booklets with several store coupons plus a $10 mail-in rebate when you by $25 of select ConAgra products in a single Publix shopping trip. I was really hoping I’d find this booklet, because I wanted to stock up on Peanut Butter and Hebrew National Beef Franks. So today I clipped my coupons and headed to the store with my brother. (He stopped by my house and I bribed him to go along and do a transaction for me. I hope he enjoys his hot dogs and peanut butter ;)

I’m writing these transactions up a little differently since there are two rebates involved so you can see how I broke them up.

    Could you send me some of those stock up books?!?! Man I wish I had them

    • I just took what I needed. It won’t help you with this week’s sale unless you can get a raincheck, but I can check to see if they have more when I shop again on Thursday.

    So Publix gave you the full amount back for the Nivea because it rang up incorrectly? When that’s happened to me they just gave me the amount back that I was charged too much. Did they just offer that to you or did you ask for your money back? Is that in their policy somewhere? I watch them like a hawk when they are ringing everything up and make them stop if something is a wrong price in case I grabbed the wrong item.

    Sorry so many questions – I want to know so if it happens to me again I’m ready. :)

    • Check out this link from the Publix web site: http://www.publix.com/about/qa/QAStore.do

      Q: What happens if a product scans incorrectly during checkout?
      A: Our Publix checkout promise guarantees that if during checkout, the scanned price of an item (excluding alcohol and tobacco products) exceeds the shelf price or advertised price, we will give the customer one of that item free. The remaining items will be charged at the lower price.

      • that happened to me on the vitamins for saturday (nature bouny), the sale price was still on the shelf at $2.67 each as the worker was trying to change the prices at 7 a.m. but she never got to those vitamins in time. the register rang up at $3.99, luckily i caught it but i never knew that, they just adjusted the price thanks :)

      It’s called a Publix Promise, if anything rings up wrong due to incorrect tags they will refund the item and give you one for free and the rest at the price on the shelf. That does not mean if it’s in the wrong spot and not on clearance items. However most of the time we will do the clearance items as well if there is an orange sticker on them. I get many people who will say well I shouldn’t have to read the entire tag its your job to make sure its in the right place. Well yes for the most part but Publix associates can not police ever isle all day long. Lets face it customers put things back in incorrect places all day. But Publix tries to take care of their customers so usually as a courtesy, our store at least will go ahead and at least adjust the price if it was claimed to be in the wrong spot.

    Where do you get the Winn Dixie coupons?

    • Ana from Marianna says:

      5 off of30 come in the enjoy the city books they have deals and you can get them cheap. Right now you can get 40 books for 100 if you get someone to go half with you, you can get 20 books each that bring 4 Winn Dixie coupons plus others. It is a good deal.(when you buy 20 your order will be doubled) hope it helps.

  4. Emily S. says:

    Where did you get the Stock up for Summer booklet?

    • It was on a display with several ConAgra products (mainly Hunt’s and Peter Pan) over near the dairy section. I think that’s just where they had space to put it, because none of the products are in that part of the store.

  5. Wow, your peanut butter is 2.75? My store is 3.69! Do I remember correctly that you’re in central Fl? (I am) If so, that is crazy how different the prices are!

    • I am in the Tampa Bay area (specifically St. Petersburg.) All the stores in the area have it at BOGO $2.75.

  6. Are you able to submit more than (1) mail-in rebate?
