Bummer of the day: Publix limits coupon use

Oh, Publix. Say it ain't so.

After so many years of love and loyalty, after you've gotten us hooked on your warm chocolate chip cookies, your mouth-watering samples, your can-I-help-you-with-this-out-to-the-car customer service, you pull THIS shenanigan: a sudden tightening of coupon restrictions. 

Times staff writer Mark Albright tells us that Publix will accept only some local competitors' coupons, restrict coupons good for percentage-off items or a total order, require manager approval for coupons offering more than $5 off, and limit dollars-off total order coupons to just one from Publix and one from a competitor.

You know we'll still be clippin', new rules or not. But that doesn't mean we're happy with you, Pubs.
