  1. Went to Publix tonight and bought 6 boxes of Chex (plus a bunch of other groceries), and did not get the milk for free. There was a long line, and a new cashier, so I didn’t try to push it. Do I need a coupon, or should it come off automatically?

  2. Hey Joy! It should have been taken off automatically… You should ask a manager. If you bring in you receipt they should give you your money back!

  3. I checked the list of qualifying items, then I checked my receipt. The cashier only scanned 5 of the 6 boxes. That’s what happened. Thanks for the advice! I really enjoy your website.

  4. Hey Joy! So glad you figured it out! If you just bring your receipt to the store they will fix it! Hope you have a great day!
