Publixmay6mbI didn’t pick up too many things at Publix today because I didn’t care for the sale that much this week. Since I live in half price BOGO land it meant no FREE dog treats for me but I was able to take advantage of some other great deals going on. The Boy will be super happy that we have more cereal in the house since he has run out recently. He will also be really excited about the Breyer’s!

  1. Hi, Monica, I bought Pedigree dog treats last night and used BOGO Qs..At home I realize that BOGO Qs took only $2 off . But I remember Q said “up to $4 ” .
    I never had this problem before (or I didn’t see it before 🙂 )
    Did the cashier make a mistake or this is a new rule in our area?

    • Monica Bragg says:

      If you are in half price BOGOs then the coupon will only deduct for the price that the item rang up for. In my area, each one would ring up $2 so they are only going to deduct $2 since it is a BOGO coupon. If you live in true BOGOs and one item rings up full price and the other as $0 then it would deduct up to the amount of the item or the max value of the coupon, whichever is lower.

  2. Thank you, Monica.
    I will ask in a store.

    • Monica Bragg says:

      You should be able to look at your receipt and see how BOGO deals are ringing up.

    my Publix in Boynton beach Florida does not allow you to buy 1 of a bogo and just charge you 1/2 price..

    • Monica Bragg says:

      No stores in Florida allow that. I am in North Alabama and we have half price BOGOs here so you can purchase just one item in a BOGO sale and it will be half price.
