Coupon Tips: Publix GAS CARD DEALS – how do they work?

beginners start here Gas Card Deals
One of the most popular questions I hear is “how does the gas card deal work at Publix”.  If you are new to gas card deals this should help you to understand how it works!

What is a gas card deal?
Every so often Publix will run a promotion in their weekly sales flyer where you will get $10 off a $50 gas card when you buy $50 or more in groceries.  This promotion will be on the front page of the flyer and is a large coupon that says $10 off a $50 Gas Card!

How long does the gas card deal last?
When Publix runs the gas card promotion, it is good from the first day of the ad until Sunday.  The promotion runs for four or five days which will depend on if your ad starts on Wednesday or Thursday.

If I have to buy $50 in groceries, is that BEFORE coupons or AFTER coupons?
The purchase requirement of $50 in groceries is BEFORE other coupons.   You will want to have the cashier ring up all of the items that you are purchasing prior to giving her the gas card and coupon while your total is the highest.  This avoids any issues.

How do I get the gas card and how do I do the transaction?
When you are shopping, swing by one of the gift card displays which are usually located on an end cap and grab a $50.00 Gas Gift Card.  Some locations have specific gift cards that you can purchase such as a Shell Card or RaceTrack Card, there are usually signs promoting the $10 off in front of the proper gas cards.

Once you have completed your shopping, load all of your groceries onto the belt to be scanned by the cashier.  DO NOT hand over any of your coupons at this time, wait until all of the groceries are scanned.  Once all of your groceries have been scanned and you have met the $50 purchase requirement hand the cashier the $50.00 Gas Gift Card that you picked up earlier and ALSO hand the cashier the $10.00 off coupon that is on the front of the weekly sales flyer.   The cashier will then process the $50 Gas Card and will take $10 off the price of the gas card.

When do I give the cashier the rest of my coupons?
AFTER the cashier has processed your gas card and the $10 off gas card coupon you can hand the cashier the rest of the coupons that you are planning to use.

What if my balance goes BELOW $50 after coupons, is that still allowed?
Yes!  That is actually our goal, we want to get our balance as low as possible by using coupons! It doesn’t matter if you get it all the way down to zero, as long as your balance was at least $50 prior to the cashier processing the gas card and coupon!  This is a great time to use rain checks that you might have for freebies or money makers to get your balance up to $50 (before coupons) and to maximize your savings!!

What if I have a Publix or a Competitor dollars-off-total-coupon such as a $5.00 off $30.00 coupon, can I use that too at the same time?
Yes!  This is what the Publix Coupon Policy states:

“Dollars-off-total-order coupons will be limited to one Publix and one competitor’s coupon per day, per household. The total order before coupons must be equal to or greater than the combined purchase requirements indicated on the coupon(s) presented.”

Basically, what this means is that the GAS CARD COUPON is considered a dollars off total order coupon so you can NOT use another Publix money off coupon BUT you CAN use a competitor dollars off total coupon such as a Winn Dixie $5.00/$30.00 coupon.   HOWEVER, the key is that in order to use BOTH your total BEFORE COUPONS would have to meet both coupon requirements.  Since the gas card coupon is a $10 off $50 and the Winn Dixie (example) is a $5 off $30 your total BEFORE coupons would have to be $80 in order to use both.

Why does everyone get so excited about gas card week?
Basically, any way you look at it you will be getting $10 in FREE GAS with this promotion!  If you normally buy at least $50 in groceries with our without coupons (gasp!) you would want to get in on this deal.  If you drive a vehicle you need gas, so why not get $10 off $50 in gas?!  It sounds like a great deal to me!!

Happy Dance Laurel and hardy

I hope that this helped you to understand how the gas card deals work at Publix!  During gas card week you will see a lot of people posting their shopping hauls which includes a gas card. It is really fun to see someone with a big pyramid of groceries PLUS a $50 Gas Card and paid UNDER $50 for all of it after coupons!  Once you get in on the action you will be excited when you see a gas card week announced too!  Trust me!!  Happy Couponing!
