Typically, Publix’s Best Meals Happen at Home will send you an email with meal planning advice, coupons, and tasty recipes. This year marks a change and the end of the current arrangement. Coupons will no longer be accepted, but there will be other ways to save. Read on for the full scoop.



When will the final weekly email with discounts be sent to me?

On December 9, 2016, we will send out our last weekly Best Meals Happen at Home email with coupons. After that, on December 16, 2016, you’ll receive another email with delicious holiday recipe ideas (but no discounts). Emails will be sent every other week starting in January 2017. While they won’t include coupons, they will include recipes and other engaging content.

For what reason are coupons being phased out?

The family meal is a special time for you, and we recognize its significance. To make it even simpler for our dedicated subscribers to save money on their favorite brands featured in The Best Meals Happen at Home without having to wait for coupons, we are introducing a new loyalty program. Now that you can shop for the participating brands you already know and trust, shopping for the week’s meals is easier than ever before, and you can save money in the process.

How about my weekly Best Meals Happen at Home email newsletter?

After a brief hiatus in 2016, we will resume sending out newsletters every two weeks via email in January 2017. You can still feed your family well with the recipes available to you. Cooking advice, recipe videos, product recommendations, and recommendations from our reliable panel of social influencers are just some of the additional resources available to help you get dinner on the table.

Presently, I am a subscriber to Best Meals Happen at Home and enjoy the weekly emails. Do I have to re-register to take advantage of the new promotion where I get a $10 Publix gift card for every $50 I spend on participating products?


Can you tell me which items* are part of this special offer?

When does this plan go into effect?

Where can you find this promotion, specifically?

This special promotion is valid exclusively at Publix. All purchases must be made at an official Publix store.

I’d like to make a qualifying purchase, but I’d like to spread it out over several trips.

Yes. A greater number of separate transactions may comprise a single qualifying purchase. Several different receipts can be uploaded to your account at once.

Can I use any Publix to make my purchases?

Any Publix location is acceptable for making eligible purchases.

I need some clarification on how to send in my receipt. Whom should I get in touch with?

I was wondering if this promotion was browser-specific.

This deal is compatible with all major browsers, including Internet Explorer, Safari, and Firefox.

Can you tell me why I have to sign up for an account?

In order to “cash out” for your reward(s), you will need to create an account, which will allow you to upload valid Publix receipts for verification, keep track of your spending to reach the $50 threshold required by the program offer, and select your reward(s).


What kinds of goods are eligible for this promotion?

Where does sales tax stand in regards to my qualifying purchase?

There will be no added sales tax to your total at checkout.

Where can I find the minimum order value for this offer?

In order to receive a $10 Publix Gift Card, you must spend at least $50 on promotional items.

How many different products of the same brand do I need to buy to meet the program’s requirements, or will just one product suffice?

You can buy as many items as you like as long as the total price is over the minimum.

How do I claim this freebie?

In order to keep tabs on your expenditures, you will need to sign up for an account and upload a photo of your receipt to the dedicated microsite. Once you’ve reached the promotion’s “cash out” threshold, you can request your gift card(s) from your account dashboard. When the goal is reached, a card will not be sent automatically.
