Publix Coupons: Not All Created Equal

Publix has been fine-tuning their coupon redemption policies lately.  Click here for Store Coupon Policies (Publix, CVS, Target, Walgreens)
There are two types of coupons in the Publix “Advantage” flyers and other special savings coupon pages and booklets (such as Stocking Spree and Summer of Savings) that come out at different times of the year and usually cover about 3 or 4 weeks.  Look for the 4 to 8-page slick/shiny paper flyers in your Sunday newspaper inserts and at Publix stores where the weekly ads are located.
One type is a manufacturer’s coupons (“MC”).  Same as any other MC, usually with a bar code and the words “Manufacturer’s Coupon” somewhere, as well as the word Publix somewhere.
The other type looks the same, except those are actual Publix “in-house” store coupons. They are the store coupons (“SC”) and currently *do not* display a bar code.  So when you are using one of the MCs, you *will not* be permitted to stack it another MC that you got from newspaper insert, food package, etc.   So, beware of this when you are coordinating your stacked coupon deals.
