Mint Hill welcomes Publix!

The Publix in Mint Hill finally opens on Wednesday January 7th! Located in the heart of Mint Hill, first day shoppers should expect a few extra perks like lots of samples of their deli items, recyclable bags and more.

A few tips on Shopping at Publix:

(see Publix website for their official Coupon policy)

They will accept:

· Manufacturer's coupons, Publix coupons, Internet coupons, and coupons from nearby competitors (a list of which are posted at each Publix store).

· Coupons from competing pharmacies for prescriptions only.

· Coupons for identical items we sell.

· Manufacturer's coupon and either a Publix or a competitor’s coupon on the same item. Maximum of two coupons per item.

Be aware:

· Manufacturer's digital offers cannot be combined with manufacturer’s paper coupons on the purchase of the same item.

· They accept percent-off-items or percent-off-total-order coupons.

· They do not accept coupons presented via a mobile phone or device.

· For a buy-one-get-one-free (BOGO) offer, each item is considered a separate purchase.

· Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor's coupon per day, per household. The total order before coupons must be equal to or greater than the combined purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented. We consider competitor's coupons for dollars off groups of items to be a dollars-off-total-order coupon and will only allow one per day, per household.

· Money due back to the customer at the end of a transaction involving coupons will only be provided on a Publix gift card.

· If an item scanned at checkout shows a higher price than advertised, you get one of those items free.
