Has this happened to anyone? I've been couponing for 4 years now and this is the first time. I ran into Publix to get some last minute deals before the ad is over. I had a BOGO coupon for Stonefire naan bread which happened to be already on sale BOGO. The cashier said she couldn't accept it because it was already buy one get one and it would be the products free. Umm, yeah isn't that the point of holding onto coupons for super deals??
Then I tried the laughing cow deal and she stopped that coupon too. She said I couldn't use my $1 off dippers coupon because that item was already "free" (with the store coupon). I never argue with cashiers because all it does is hold up the line and I didn't want to make her feel bad if I marched up to customer service.
Did Publix change the policy and no longer accept coupons on free items? Is it a store decision? Or was the cashier just incorrect?
