The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 1/26 or Thursday 1/27, is:

Publix Sugar, 4 lb bag

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!

      I am new at this. Is the coupon in the newspaper or Publix flyer? I live in South Ga so I am guess today is when the Penny Item would be available?

      • Ivyandterry

        If you are in Valdosta, our publix does not participate. They also do not double. :(

        • Truelove4marykay

          I live in Kingsland, GA – Where do I get the coupon?

          • Cozmikcowgirl

            I don't live in Georgia, so this is just for reference sake. In the Birmingham news the coupon is on page 2A. It is NOT in the Publix ad, nor in the store. It is a plain black and white print coupon in the bottom left-hand corner of the page. I would guess that the Georgia papers have similar placement. Call your Publix and ask them if they participate and on what page the coupon is.

            • Boatright5232

              Is it in the Wednesday paper?

            • Jessmender

              It is in the paper on the day that your ad comes out. In the AJC it is on the second page of the Living section at the bottom of the page.

            • Misschelf

              In Charleston, SC, it is on page 4 of the Post and Courier

            • Truelove4marykay

              Thank you!

    • Spencers4christ

      Can you only get one?

      • Jessmender

        Yes, but I've gone to two different Publixes to get more than one before when the item was really good :-)

    • carla

      Stores in Middle TN do not require you to have a coupon.

    • Angelsldyd

      I really wish Publix would make the penny item and doubling of coupons everywhere.

      • Stephaniesfood

        You need to send an email and/or a letter to their corporate office. They really do listen to their customers! Complaining about it on here will not do you any good! Go to the source!!

    • Nina96

      I am surprised that not all Publix stores do not double coupons!

    • Cind

      where are the weekly ad's for this week? I can't find them…

    • lauren

      it's actually a 5 pound bag of sugar

    • BethS

      I'm actually fine with paying for an AJC, a dollar, depending on the product. If I can get a 4 or 5 pound bag of sugar for $1, to me it's worth it. Yes, free is better, but mine is getting to where they want the coupon more often.

      • kristenk

        can you tell me, for the ajc, is it on wed or thurs, and where can i find it in the paper? thanks!

        • Patty

          It is in the thursday paper. It is in the living section on the 2nd page at the bottom usually.

      • Shelleyschu

        I buy the Marietta Daily Journal and it is only 50 cents.

    • Kriss

      Ooooo…this is a great one! Thanks!

    • Kelley

      Penny item at Forest Acres Publix ix Piblix Elbow Noodles

    • JAM

      Does anyone know if you need the coupon to get the penny item at the Publix in Macon, GA? How about the ones in Warner Robins?

    • Matcyl

      I live in Lawrenceville, where is the best Publix, that doubles and does not need a coupon for penny Items. The one on Old Peachtree Rd./ Buford Dr. is very particular about their coupons, and I do not think they double, but I am not sure.

      • CTaylor

        They should double coupons. I am in Lawrenceville as well. Closest store to me is Sugarloar Pkwy – they are nice, but they keep changing their coupon policy. Now they don't take Target coupons anymore. She said they take Walmart and Kroger. Then she admitted, well, Walmart doesn't really have coupons.
        The Publix on Duluth Highway and Lawrenceville Suwanee take Target and Food Lion coupons.

        • Matcyl

          Thanks!! They take Kroger also!!

    • MeiyenK

      Hi, Jenny! I am fairly new to this site. How do I get a coupon for the penny item? Can I print it out somewhere? Thanks for all you do!!

      • happymom

        It's in the newspaperon Wed or Thurs (whichever day your ad starts).

      • Sarah

        The penny item coupon is in your daily newspaper.

    • SK in Coker

      Guess I got there to late in the day 3:15, the penny item at Northport Publix was Duncan Hines cake mix> Needless to say I was disappointed! I needed the SUGAR…

      • april

        I got there at 1:00 and it was Publix coffee. Since the snowstorm at least it hasn't been the same item in each store.

    • Shop Now

      Am I the only one who paid full price for this today :(

    • April

      The penny has been different for each store/area for a few weeks now. In Northport, AL it was Publix coffee.

    • Sillysuuee

      our Publix in Ooltewah, TN had pizza for a penny

    • Kirabstokes

      Where is the penny coupon located in SC's “The State” Paper, also which day is it in the paper? Does the coupon have to be used on a specific day of the week?

    • Joanna

      I went to get the penny item today and they said they were out but they changed it to the Publix coffe and I said nevermind and the manager tyold me to get the 5lb bag and told me to tell the cashier it was ok. When I got the register the lady asked if I found out about the item online and I said yes. She said that coupon ladsy is causing us lots of trouble!!!

    • Beth

      It was a 5 lbs. bag of sugar at my store! They had a huge display of it at the check outs!

    • Jordan Brado

      this is in the Atlanta stores ONLY!!!

    • Cindy071981

      I was just wondering Jacksoniville, fla does not do this i guess?
