A rain check is received at the Publix Customer Service counter when an item is out of stock which is part of an advertised sale. 

The sale can be a SALE in the Green or Purple Co-Op Flyers, not a Publix coupon. A sale can be found in the weekly sales ad as well.
Customer Service will write you a rain check which you can redeem for the advertised price within the next 30 days.
Some musts to receive a raincheck:
  • A raincheck can only be written for a sale. 
  • The sale must be advertised on the Publix website, in the weekly ad, or the Co-Op Flyers (Green or Purple Flyers) 

What if my store isnt out of all the products on sale but a specific flavor?

If your store has a BOGO sale on Quaker Oatmeal, and your coupon is for the Cinnamon flavor only and your store is out of that flavor, you can receive a rain check specifically for that flavor of oatmeal. The rain check must be used on the exact product it is written for. If your store is out of all Quaker Oatmeal Customer Service may not specify a flavor on the rain check and you can redeem it for any flavor of Quaker Oatmeal.

Raincheck may be redeemed at ANY Publix location. 
Publix will issue one rain check per household per day. Each day the item is out of stock the Publix policy states you may receive a rain check, whether it is the first or last day of the sale. 

How do I redeem my raincheck?

Rainchecks can be redeemed at registers during a normal check out. Place the rain check on the items it is for, so the cashier is aware to ring the items up at the raincheck’s sale price. If you do not alert the cashier before ringing up the items they will have to void the items and re-ring them at the sale price, so it important to let them know before they scan the items. 

My coupons expired before I redeemed my rain check.

That’s ok! Publix will accept the expired coupons (Store or Manufacturer) if they were valid at the time the rain check was written.

I have more than one rain check. Can I use multiple rain checks in the same transaction?

Yes; as long as the correct number of products are purchased to meet the requirements of the rain check, multiple rain checks can be redeemed in the same order. However all coupon limitations still apply. Meaning if the manufacturer coupon has a limit of one, you can stll only use one coupon, even if you have a rc for  items. 

If you have two ranchecks, or  items each you can use them both in one transaction but you can not exceed the 8 like coupons policy. 


Publix only has two of the item in stock and my rain check is for eight items, can they rewrite it for the other six items?

No, unfortanely Publix requires you to purchase all eight items your rain check is written for, or you will lose the remaining items.


My item has not been in stock and its been almost 30 days and my rain check is about to expire…

Go to Customer Service and explain the item still is not in stock, they can rewrite the raincheck for another 30 days. 


I have a rain check for Pampers for $8.99 and there is a $5 off two sale next week, will I get both deals?

No, the purpose of the rain check is to allow the customer to receive the price of the item during the sale it was written. You can not combine your rain check sale price with a current sale.

How many items can I get a rain check for?

Each day the item is out of stock, you can receive a raincheck.

The quanity  depends on the type of sale.
A rain check can be issued for up to 8 single items, or up to 4 deals, not exceeding 20 items.​
If the sale is a BOGO sale: you can get a rain check for 4 deals or 8 items.
 $10 for 10 sale: you can get a rain check for 2 deals or 20 items.
Buy Two, Get One Free Sale: you can receive a rain check for 4 deals on a “Buy Two, Get One Free” energy drinks, which is 12 items.

The rain check policy is written on the back of the raincheck.
