The Pinch: Go on a Stocking Spree at Publix

Publix shoppers can save on food, beverage and health and beauty items with a new coupon campaign available exclusively at Publix called Stocking Spree.


Stocking Spree focuses on household brands from PepsiCo, Procter & Gamble and Kraft Foods. To receive the coupon booklet by mail, sign up at, while supplies last, said Brenda Reid, Publix media relations manager for Georgia, South Carolina, Tennessee and Alabama.

An e-mail from Procter & Gamble about the Stocking Spree program said that shoppers can save more than $62 with their first coupon booklet. The coupon booklet will arrive by mail from Aug. 1 to Aug. 7. The coupons are valid from Aug. 1 to Aug. 31.

Stocking Spree booklets are mailed out several times a year through the U.S. Postal Service. Shoppers do not have to sign up each time there is a new coupon booklet. If they have signed up in the past, they will receive the new booklet each time one is distributed, according to the program’s Web site.

There is a limit of one Stocking Spree booklet per household. Coupons can be redeemed at Publix Super Markets only.
