    hi i wanted to leave a comment because i thought you weren’t allowed to use more then one $5/$30 coupon per transaction or can you.. cuz the coupon says your not allowed

    1. Each store is different on how they handle multiple $5/$30 coupons. Some follow the letter of the policy which would require my breaking the total purchase into the number of transactions required to utilize one for each $30 (pre-coupon) spent where others (mine included) simply want to make sure the total gross (before coupons) equals the required minimum for the number of “$ off” coupons scanned (i.e. $60 for two coupons, $90 for three, etc.)

      I’m currently working on some software (my profession) that will help to split a transaction into smaller ones automatically based on items bought, the promotions, and the mi imam gross required so that readers whose stores don’t allow the multiple would plug in the data and it would spit out the transactions and items in each to maximize savings.

    How can you use the $5 coupon for moisturizer for the cleanser? The Moisturizer is a much more expensive product.

    1. I was spinning through the various sites making my final list and doing final checks late Wednesday night to make sure I hadn’t missed anything that we may want/need in the house and came across that matchup over on iHeartPublix (the link is included in the site posting). Seeing that nobody had refuted the matchup or even questioned the coupon’s presence in the list, I added it to my list and brought my coupons in the event that they were present in my store.
