LAKELAND, Fla. - You may have seen a Publix coupon floating around social media this weekend that seemed too good to be true.

The coupon promises customers $100 off of a purchase of $120 or more...all you have to do is share the coupon on social media and provide an email address.

Publix Grocery Stores, however, are warning shoppers to steer clear of it, saying that the coupon is indeed fake.

A spokesperson for the grocery chain says the coupon is fake and that Publix will not honor it.

Here is an official Facebook post from the chain:

"There is a fraudulent Publix coupon circulating on social media that states ‘$100 off your purchase of $120 or more’. This is not supported by Publix and this coupon is not valid at any of our locations. We recommend not participating in the promotion or providing your personal information. Thank you for your patience as we investigate this situation."
