The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday & Monday, 12/6- 12/7, is:

Publix Bleach

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 Publix Sunday Ad every week or somewhere in the Sunday Paper. Some stores do not require this coupon, but many have changed and do require it now, check with your store to find their policy.

Get all of this weeks Publix Deals and Coupon Matches!  There is also a Green Advantage Buy Flyer out.

**Note: FL and 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!

    • ~*Brook*~

      YEAH!!! Bleach was on my list this week. Awesome penny item!!

    • mzellie621

      Yes, great deal, also if you don’t need it you can donate to the animal shelter, at least it’s on the list of needed items of my local shelter.

    • Natalie

      The penny item in Macon, GA is a paper towel roll. Love it! and LOVE LOVE LOVE your website!!!

    • Stella

      Publix in Madison on Hwy 72 has instant mashed potatoes instead of bleach for the penny item.

      • Snppmommy

        Oh man. They always seem to change the penny item. They had hot dogs two weeks in a row. I was really hoping for the bleach.

      • Michelle

        County Line Road has the bleach….

        • Snppmommy

          Oh good that is the one I normally shop at.

      • went back just now and penny item was dukes mayo. still a great charity item!

    • Michelle

      Does anyone know the answer to this? If I go in and they have switched the penny item, can I still tell them that I want the bleach (if they have it in stock)? I really need bleach and my Publix always switches it…I’ve had it switched from the time that I’ve picked up my item, shopped, and go to checkout…of course, they give it to me, but they’re crazy about switching numerous times a day. Thanks!!!

      • Snppmommy

        I think it depends on your cashier. One week it was peanut butter as I read on this site but when I checked out the cashier said they had switched it to juice but he said he was going to give it to me anyway. I don’t know what the official policy is but that has been my experience.

      • Laura

        When that happens at my Publix (it happened with candy), I just ask the manager if I can get the one I wanted. He said that was no problem. They also allow me to substitute items when they are out of stock of a particular brand that was on sale. They are a nice store.

      • Amy

        My Publix usually says that I can have either/ or if they have switched the penny item. Works for me, because then I get a choice!

    • My penny item was publix homestyle instant mashed potatoes.

      Madison, AL

    • Brandi

      Macon, GA Publix on Bass has paper towels instead of bleach.

    • Carla

      Our Publix in Vestavia AL had all the different “flavors” lemon, citrus, and regular to choose from!

      • lol, lee branch did too.

    • CC

      i got bleach at the pelham rd, greenville location

    • I usually split my order into two transactions and get two penny items – never more than two penny items. Today, the cashier refused to do it. She said that they weren’t supposed to do it before, but cashiers just let it slide. She also said that last week a customer tried to split her order into 5 transactions to get 5 pizzas so now they are cracking down. I’m getting kind of tired of our store changing it’s policies because some people are trying to stretch the rules. The old manager used to have cashiers inform you of the change, but would still let you do it the old way one more time if you were hearing it for the first time at the checkouts.

      The Spring Hill Tennessee store is really going downhill as far as customer service. I understand that they have a bottom line, but they are shortstaffed all the time (today I had to bag my own groceries and carry them out so I wouldn’t have to wait as long), lines are always 3 or 4 long, it takes forever to get a response if the cashier has a problem b/c customer service is short staffed, and lately they are just flat out rude. It’s becoming more and more like a Walmart in there. I used to love that store, they were my neighborhood store. Now I just want to get in and get out without a hassle and a long wait.

      • lindsey

        Amen, sister!! That used to be such a great store & they stink now! I will continue to shop there for now, but only b/c I despise Kroger. They were so rude to me last week that the customer in line behind me actually stepped in & told them to back off! Pretty sad! They need the old manager back! It’s been really bad since he left!

      • Jennifer

        Lol. Before I read the end of your post I thought to myself “Sounds like Wal-Mart to me,” I guess you feel the same way as I do about them.

      • Sue

        Do you think that splitting your order is taking advantage of the Mystery Coupon? I do. It will eventually ruin it for everybody.

    • amy

      Publix Mc Calla, Al has pasta as the penny item

    • Holly

      Publix on Mountain Gap in Huntsville was doing oats (quick cooking or old-fashioned) as the penny item.

    • Rebecca

      I went yesterday to Publix and saved $43 (only spent $72). I had to specifically ask for the Winter Savings Booklet but was able to get a free pack of tape and a free Hot Wheels car. And while I was checking out, the cashier asked if I would like the penny item (bleach) w/o a coupon? Sure, for a penny!

    • Kendra

      This is a little late, but I wanted to let everyone know that in Sunday’s paper I found a coupon for 5 free Beach Nut 4oz jars of baby food with the purchase of a Pampers Big Box. In the Publix ad they have a coupon for $3 off Pampers Cruisers or Baby Dry (big boxes only)… if your local Publix does not have this coupon try printing it from their website with the zip code of 34689. Inside the box of Baby Dry diapers you will find a coupon book. I brought my box of diapers and my 5 jars of baby food PLUS my two coupons to customer service and asked if I could take the coupon book out since I was buying the diapers anyway, THEY SAID YES! Inside the book I found a $2.00 off manufacturers coupon. I used this coupon as well and purchased my diapers and baby food for a total of $7 off ($2 Man. Q, $3 Publix Q, and $2 for baby food). The diapers sell at my Publix for 19.99, so this made all the items around $13.00, but my deal got even better. Before coupons my total was 21.99 (w/o tax). I was able to use a Save-a-lot $5 off $20 purchase (found in my Entertainment book- a great investment for Publix shoppers). After all my coupons and tax my grand total before tax came to $9.99! My son wears a size 4 diaper, so I was able to purchase 82 Pampers diapers and 5 jars of baby food for less than $10, I call that a steal! Even without the Save-a-lot coupon I would have been a great deal. We rarely buy name brand diapers because I have found that Target diapers (with a coupon) are the cheapest and for our family the least likely to burst, but I just couldn’t pass up this Pampers deal.

      • Kendra

        I also wanted to add that the coupon book in the box is $10 in coupons, including the $2 diaper one, so if you use that you end up with $8 in coupons left. It’s really a great deal when you take into account the number of diapers, food and coupons you get for the price.

    • Emily

      I tried to buy the Kikkoman with the 2 coupons suggested above (one B1G1 & $1.00 off). They wouldn’t allow me to use both. :(
