Coupon Claiming to Get $100 Off at Publix is a Scam

Just when we thought shopping couldn’t be any more of a pleasure… Publix released a coupon for $100 off a purchase of $120 or more… or so we thought.

The coupon was most likely all over your newsfeed with friends sharing a link with the coupon, with the words “Thanks Publix.”

Publix quickly came out and said, hang on – it’s a scam.

 
(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));

There is a fraudulent Publix coupon circulating on social media that states "$100 off your purchase of $120 or more".... Posted by Publix on Sunday, July 12, 2015

The post is spreading fast on Facebook, since it relies on people to share it to convince their friends and family to click.

Experts say you shouldn’t click the link, because it’s not yet known if the link contains any malicious code.
