I think I was slow on the uptake with this policy. When I shop BOGO's I usually buy two and use two coupons, so I wasn't aware that Publix had changed their BOGO policy.
Today I decided, due to lack of freezer space, to only buy one ice cream that was offered as a BOGO. In the past Publix would charge 1/2 price for one item offered as a BOGO, but the cashier told me that I would have to pay full price if I only bought one.
So, I was forced (ha ha) to bring home two ice creams, which are now barely wedged into the freezer.
They also had Dial hand soap 10 for a $10. These were only a dollar apiece when I bought two. The cashier explained that if it is a (number) for (price) sale they do break down the price for each item.
This is getting complicated.
