Publix getting even stricter on couponers?

Is it possible Publix is getting even stricter on couponers? I went in today, and all my Winn Dixie coupons were questioned by the cashier:

Cashier: “Can I take all these?” (6) They were for different products.

Front End Coordinator ( Do they still call them that?) “Sure, why not?”

Cashier: “Well, there is 6 of them, the limit is 8, right?”

Front End Coordinator: “Yes, the limit on any coupon of the same item is 8, but there are only 6 here, and they are different.”

Cashier: “Ok…….”

Now mind you, I follow whatever policy is put into place and try not to push the envelope for just this reason. I don’t want to be “The One”. You know, the one they all groan at, and talk about in the breakroom. This cashier, who is always nice, had that “we just had a meeting look” on her face.

Meanwhile, the lady behind me was getting antsy. ” Is that your last stack, or should I move”? Well, I guess that is up to you now, isn’t it?

I was also told by another fellow couponer/Publix employee, that if you receive a Publix gift card, you cannot use it in the next order anymore or even on the same day. I am not too worried about this, as I don’t coupon enough anymore to receive a gift card.

How about you? Is Publix getting stricter, in words or attitude? Does this change the way you coupon?
