Free & Nearly Free Stuff – With & Without Coupons

PUBLIX AD 
(ending 4/18/12 in Florida)
.
Publix did not accept Winn-Dixie $5 off $30 coupons toward the two $50 gas cards because I had the two Publix $10 off coupons from current ad. There were lots of posts and comments here and there about how Publix accepted both coupons stacked, but my Publix said it would be too many “store” coupons per their policy.  I knew that and was fine with it, but thought I’d ask anyway.
