    I had the same issue with the printable not doubling one store manager manually adjusted it but the next store manager would not lol of course the one that allowed it is the one I shop at most of the time. Still a good price either way.

  2. None of the Publix’s around me will let u use a Bogo coupon with a another coupon, I tried the other day, And they said it was coupon fraud, I was like WHAT! They proceded to tell me something to the effect one attaches to the other one, So I was wondering how that works, They gave me a really hard time. What is the deal with that, I see other folks using them that way.

      You cannot use a BOGO manufacturer coupon with another manufacturer coupon. In this scenario Tracey used a BOGO manufacturer coupon and the other coupon was a Publix Store Coupon.
