Every so often, they'll run it at a deceptive "buy 3 get 2 free", which looks the same at first glance but is actually 3.90 each.
Current price is $6.79 for a 12 pack. That's crazy. But anything below $3 is great. Pepsi seems to go on sale at 2 get 3 more often to Coke but I could be wrong. The 3 get 2 is like you said deceptive. You have to pay attention.

The online HT Express Lane shows that it's $4.99 this week. Which is still crazy.

Hmmm that's what I checked and got $6.79. Maybe my store isn't on sale.

The past few weeks I've received an email with a Saturday special for $1.97, limit 2. It's not on the email this week.

Default Publix Coupons

While many prefer HT, I absolutely love Publix and was thrilled when they came to the Fort Mill area!! I am a couponer and I would much rather coupon at Publix than HT (except for Super doubles/triples)!
Anyway, I noticed that a couple people were wondering about the coupon doubling policy for Publix. Here is the link to a coupon Q&A from their website:

Publix Coupon Policy

And here is a more detailed coupon policy which shows the coupon doubling policy:

Publix Coupon Policies :: Southern Savers


**Southern Savers has been a long-trusted website for us couponers**

I am not sure why the Publix website doesn't state they will double coupons. Perhaps its because in FLA and parts of GA they do not double at all.

Default Publix- Where shopping is a pleasure, really.

There have been posts about Publix on these forums for years. Debates about what does or does not stand it apart from the rest. I was reading this online today and thought I would share what only a Publix shopper knows. I thought it was really cute and well made.

Reasons Why Publix Is The Best Grocery Store To Ever Exist

I don't think the author could jerk off Publix any more than that.
I must say, I went to the Publix in Fort Mill and was extremly disappointed with their craft beer selection. There was not one local beer available. If I was a regular shopper there I would have mentioned it to management.

It's one of the more bubbleheaded things I've seen lately.

Did not read the article, but...

I've never seen a Publix with a good beer selection anywhere. I really like their stores, but for some reason they just don't seem to get it when it comes to beer and never really have. I was hoping that the new stores would be good, but like you I dropped into the Fort Mill store and saw that the selection was typical for them.

None of the chains in Charlotte really do either, although Harris Teeter is decent I guess. Best selection you'll find in grocery stores around these parts is in Ingles, but none are in Charlotte.

It is a grocery chain. Grocery chains are not known to carry tons of different alcohol/beer products. This is why there exists liqueur stores like ABC. They are in business since they carry more obscure brands.
