Reader Question:  Whole Foods Coupons

reader questions


Hey guys!  I know we have a lot of folks at different stages of experience when it comes to couponing, so I will start posting reader questions since it will be beneficial to those who are just starting out.  I’ll keep these reader questions easily available in case you want to reference them in the future.  You will find them on the menu:  NEWBIES ==> Reader Questions

If you have a question, feel free to email me:

Our first question comes from Lucia.

Hi Melissa,My name is Lucia and I an avid couponer especially for healthy, organic ones. I have been checking your sites and found great deal that way. I have just noticed something. You listed a Wholefoods Coupon that can be used at a Publix store? Did I understand that correctly? I thought the Wholefoods Coupons can be used only at WF? That is even mentioned on their coupons. I also have another question related to the WF coupons. For some reason the WH system does not allow the cash register to enter more then 1 WF coupons. Sometimes a ” clueless cashier” tells me it’s one coupon per purchase. And I tell him/her yes but I can get more products if I have similar products? Also in the past I was able to use 12 coupons on one product if I bought in bulk. Please advice if you encountered similar problems. Best,Lucia

These are great questions Lucia and I’ve seen these questions come up in my Facebook group as well!

  • Publix accepts competitor coupons.  This can be Whole Foods, Target, Winn Dixie, Earth Fare or any other stores within it’s proximity.  If your Publix considers Whole Foods a competitor, they will accept the Whole Foods coupon AND you can also stack the Whole Foods coupon with a manufacturer’s coupon.   The same applies to any other stores’s coupon that is considered a competitor.  To check, you can look at the front of the Publix store and there will usually be a sign that tells you which stores are considered competitors at that particular Publix.  If you don’t see the sign, you can also go to Customer Service and ask them.
  • The Whole Foods policy is that you can only use one coupon per individual per purchase of specified product(s).  However, some stores will allow you to use more than one Whole Foods coupon (which my Whole Foods allows me to do).  I can stack these multiple Whole Foods coupon with a case discount.  For example, if I bought a case of Zico coconut water (containing 12), I can stack the 10% discount, 12 Manufacturer’s Coupons and 12 Whole Foods coupon.  BUT if your Whole Foods only allows 1 coupon (per their policy), you will only be able to stack the 10% discount, 12 Manufacturer’s coupons, and 1 Whole Foods coupon.

Hope that makes sense! 🙂
