And I changed my Glade $1/2 MFQ to a $3/3 Holiday Scents tearpad MFQ.

My trip was great. I went early Thursday morning and it was nice and empty in the store. Normally, I can't go that early because my daughter is actually a late sleeper, but with my mom here I could go early and without a child. The only down side was they didn't have any of the Glade Holiday scents. I had gone to a different Publix the night before (my mom wanted to get something from the store, and I saw the tearpad there), so I decided to run by that store really quick to get them. I went to check-out at customer service since I knew I had coupon overage, and they didn't want to let me use all the coupons because it would mean they would give me money back (which I knew might be a problem, but figured they would just adjust the one coupon down). I asked they CS person to just adjust the coupon down, so she went into a room to ask a manager who came out and told me I couldn't. I asked again saying that's what they do at other Publix, and she still wasn't budging so I said "this is why I don't shop at this Publix," which was true I had been there in the past and they had been very annoying about coupons. She then explained that she couldn't adjust it down because I had to pay tax and they couldn't tell how much was tax. I said, "it says right here on the screen that the tax is 36¢." Apparently the screen the cashiers see doesn't break down what is tax and what isn't. She finally adjusted the coupon down, and then apologized several times. But I still stand by the fact that this is why I don't shop at that Publix (that and it is crowded and laid out very oddly). It's weird how different Publix can be in the same city.
