Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 11/2 or Thursday 11/3, is:

Publix Old Fashioned or Quick Oats, 18 oz

You can get the Publix Penny item with any purchase that is $10 or more before coupons. Most stores will require the penny item coupon found somewhere in your Wednesday or Thursday paper.

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

      Anyone not able to find coupon in paper today?  I am in greenville sc

      • Janie Burton

        I couldn’t find in the greenville paper either.

      • Alexmccarrell

        K thanks just wanted to make sure i am not crazy:)

    • Mail

      Yeah, I cannot find it in the Greenville Edition

    • Mfraz

      I did not see it in my copy of The State either…I went to The State dot com and printed it there. Not sure if it works at the Greenville area though…it says aprticipating stores and makes no indication that it is for Cola area. Look under find and save tab and type in Publix and it comes up.

      Yea the coupon is not in the Greenville edition, I have searched and searched.  Has anyone called the paper or publix to see if there is another way to do it?

        • Patty

          Thank you!  Just went crazy trying to find it.

      You can ask at customer service for the penny item coupon. I started doing this a few weeks ago, and it’s much easier then scouring the paper.

      I love our publix. Wednesdays senior citizens get 5% off. I started going because they oooh and ahhh over my cute (and well behaved) little boys, and some tell me all about their grandkids that are too far away. Love to share the smiles. A sweet little man gave me his penny item coupon and even brought the oats over too me. :)

      Page 14A in the Post and Courier and it was hard to spot for some reason!

      I’m told by my Tequesta, FL Publix store manager that Florida does not participate in the Penny Item.  Does anyone else know this?  The manager had never heard of it.

      does anyone know what page it is on in Atlanta?  Also, do you know whether the Publix stores in the Northern Atlanta area need the coupon to get the penny item? Thanks!

          Thanks for your help!!

        A3 in the Marietta Daily Journal.  I actually had the coupon today, but in the past I either ask at customer service or just tell the cashier I have the penny item.
