Publix Gift card promo

Look for the purple Publix coupon flyer in stores that says “Over $37 in Coupon Savings” across the top. Find a coupon on the back cover that gives you $10 off a $50 grocery purchase when you buy a $50 Visa gift card. It does include a $4.95 purchase charge, so your savings would be 10 percent on groceries if you needed a practical gift for graduations or Father’s Day.
