Do I Have to Download the Publix App?

While it's not necessary to download the mobile app to register and enjoy the benefits of a Publix account, it does offer some exclusive features. Mobile users like its smart reordering capabilities, the ability to pay for purchases instantly, and other earned perks.

To pay via your Publix App while in-store, you'll have to have your debit or credit card preloaded and scan the QR code with your phone at the register. It means if you've decided to close your Publix account, we recommend removing your financial details from your mobile app as well before uninstalling it from your phone.

Reasons to Delete Your Publix Account

There could be plenty of reasons you've decided to permanently delete your Publix account, from needing to clear app space on your phone to harboring a grudge against a deli worker. (Just kidding about that last one—legitimate customer complaints should be submitted to the Publix Customer Care Line.) Here are some common reasons you may decide to delete your account:

  1. Your Club Publix Membership requires your data, including your name, email address, and phone number, and may also include your financial details if you make purchases through the app. When your account is no longer needed and left unmonitored, it is at risk of attack from hackers looking to steal your identity. Permanently deleting your unwanted Publix account is the best way to protect yourself from fraud.
  2. As a regional grocery store, Publix has locations in only seven states in the South East area of the United States. If you used to live in a place where you frequented nearby Publix Super Markets but have since moved away, you'll want to delete your old Club Publix Membership and its related app.
  3. Publix offers Pharmacy services (and a separate associated Publix Pharmacy app) to its shoppers at many of its locations. If you have changed your prescription fill method or switched your pharmacy provider and no longer need the services of a Publix-based pharmacy, you should consider deleting your old account.
