The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 11/17 or Thursday 11/18, is:

Publix Cheese

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!

      They have the paper for sale in the store – and that can be part of you $10 purchase. My favorite cashier told me they were now requiring the coupon to help support the local paper. What a nice company!

      Where is the penny item coupon? I can't seem to find it.

      • Jessie

        In the AJC it is usually in the Living section on the second page at the bottom. I'm not sure about other papers.

      • Guest

        In the Birmingham News, it is on the inside of the front page at the bottom

      Does anyone know the answer to this? On a manufacturer coupon, will Publi double them even if it says “Do not double”? I haven't ever asked b/c, to be honest, I didn't want to bring it to their attention. I am sure it might vary from store to store too. I was just wondering if they had a general policy that someone might know. I apologize if this has been asked before. Thanks!!!!

      • Coupongirl19

        sorry! Should have put that on the main publix page!

      • Jennifer

        The coupon will usually double if the bar code at the bottom begins with the number 5. In fact, these coupons have doubled for me without fail at Publix. I sometimes don't get the double at another store, however. Hope this helps!
