Reminders about our local store policies:
The key to the game is buying the sale items. The BEST deals are the B1G1s. My list is mostly B1G1, essential items and sale items. I buy fruits/veggies/meats that are on sale that week. These sale items are already GREAT deals--Add coupons and they are AWESOME buys!

Locals(the following applies to Fairhope and Orange Beach locations):
*Our local Publix ads usually run Wednesday-Tuesday. Holiday ads vary.
*Sneak Peeks are always subject to change.
*Our local prices will usually vary by a couple of cents from Sneak Peek ads.
*NO Food Lion, Harvey's, Dollar Store, etc... coupons accepted at our local stores.
*Manufacturer coupons & store coupons (local grocery/drugstores/Target/Publix) accepted at the Publix in Fairhope and Orange Beach.
*One $/$$ coupon per visit per day at Fairhope location as long as your order total qualifies before coupons. Orange Beach is accepting one Publix $/$$ and one competitor $/$$ per person per day.
You can find a list of $/$$ here. Always hand these to the cashier first.
*No doubling of coupons or penny items at the Fairhope/Orange Beach stores.
*You do not have to buy 2 of the B1G1s to get the sale price. They ring up 1/2 price and 1/2 price at our local stores.
*ONE Manufacturer + ONE store coupon = ONE item.
*No Price Matching at Publix. No Price matching coupons.

*NO CVS Extra Care Bucks...ONLY Walgreen's Register Rewards. You can use Walgreen's Register Rewards like cash to pay. Always hand these to the cashier last. Fairhope will accept unlimited non expired Register Rewards. Orange Beach is one per retailer.
*Orange Beach shoppers please hand over your coupons to the cashier first as she/he may need to match up.

What are match ups? Available coupons and the source matched up with sales items. BIG time savers!

*Are you in another location? Use the above as a guide to know what to ask your store customer service/manager. Every store is different because each store manager decides on their local coupon policy. You can also send me an email and I will do my best to help you out with your policies.
