  1. Do you know if the register prompts the cashier to give us the $5 gift card or do we need to keep track of it? I was going to do your scenario in a larger shopping trip but don’t want to make it confusing. Thanks! 🙂

    • Hey Katrina! You actually have to print and submit the form by rebate – just keep your receipt and then you’ll get the gift card after you mail it in. Hope that helps! 🙂 (The link to the rebate is at the top of the post.)

  2. Okay, thanks! I thought it was like Target where you get the gift card instantly… still a good deal, though!

    • I sure wish it was! For the most part, all the gift card deals at Publix require a rebate… like you said though, still a great deal (as long as you remember to send it off!) 🙂
