The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 10/6 or Thursday 10/7, is:

Publix Coffee

You can get the Publix Penny item with any purchase that is $10 or more before coupons. There is a Mystery Penny Item coupon in the Wednesday or Thursday Paper every week . Some stores do not require this coupon, but many have changed and do require it now, check with your store to find their policy.

The Penny Item is for one day only, and will be the day that the add starts in your area. This is Wednesday for all of SC and AL, and parts of GA, or Thursday for Northern GA.

**Note: FL and some Coastal GA stores DO NOT participate in the Penny Item**

A thought… You will not get much closer to free, so if you don’t need, like or want this item, then give it away. There are many folks that would probably love it!

    • Acjustjunk

      didn't they just do coffee

    • Bamacat

      The one cent item is becoming how Publix gets rids of the store brand stuff nobody will pay full price for.

      • Couponcrazy85

        I thought publix gives really good penny items! Some of the stuff I got was awesome :) of course, that's just my opinion.

    • Tonyna

      My store must have been out of coffee so I got V8 fusion instead!

    • Tamara

      Yay for 1 cent coffee!

    • Denise P.

      Is that coffee for a drip machine or instant?

    • kjmiller

      Supposed to be “for all coffee makers”. And yes, they did just do it. Personally, I don't think it's even worth a penny (worst stuff I've had in a long time..).

      • LRae17

        I'd be afraid to try ever since we started roasting our own and sell a little fresh roasted on the side.

    • meekoheather

      I was in the Lexington, SC store this morning and I could have sworn the penny item was Krusteaz pancake mix….

    • kschrodt

      Yes, in Lexington, SC the penny item is Krusteaz pancake/waffle mix (blueberry, buttermilk, or homestyle varieties). yum!

    • Acjustjunk

      I didn't bother to check and make sure it was coffee in Greenville. Wish I had now.

    • Cheryl Demarre

      FYI . . . at the Lexington, SC, Publix there are now notices posted at the checkout registers that the newspaper coupon must be presented to obtain the penny item.

    • Pam A.

      I went to the Publix in Lexington and the 1 cent item was pancake mix. I do not use that! I wanted the coffee!!

    • Mandie

      My sister's store just opened in Dothan AL they do not double and have no penny item :( She still saved a ton though :)

      • Renee

        The reasoning behind this is because the stores in Dothan are a part of the Jacksonville district and FL stores do no participate in the programs. It's a bummer :-(

    • Simpliepie

      I went to Publix tonight in Greenville Sc Wade hapton Blvd and the 1cent item was a box of Quaker Instant Oatmeal. You could pick low sugar, regular, maple and brown sugar, even BLUEBERRY or the kind with DINO for kids. It was great.

    • Dariac

      I loved the Publix Menu ideas from last week. I made 3 of them. I dont see them for this week. I hope they have them this week, too. :)

    • Watson_joyce

      In Chattanooga the penny item is only offered on Wednesday

    • Lakelandtib

      I cant believe I live in Lakeland Fl-home of Publix and have never heard of the Penny item til I saw it on here…I see from previous comments that Fl stores dont participate…which is very strange dont you think?
