The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 3/10 or Thursday 3/11, is:

Publix Tortilla Chips

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 now 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.

Get all of this weeks Publix Deals and Coupon Matches! There is also a new Yellow Advantage Buy Flyer and a Green Advantage Buy with lots of other deals!.

**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!

      Where in the paper should I find the penny item coupon? I just started getting the daily Chattanooga Times Free Press and my penny item should be Wednesday, but I didn't see the penny item coupon.

      • AngelaDH

        I believe it was on page A7 on the bottom. I wish it was in the neighborhood papers, too!

    • Mom2teenagers

      It's on page B2 in The State.

    • Gina

      If I don't have a Food Lion in my area will Publix honor their coupons?

      • Julie

        They do not at my Publix.

      • socoupon

        Most likely not – I was told my Publix that they will only honor competitor coupons within a 5 mi radius.

      P&C- pg 2B bottom right

    • GA Mom

      Will the coupon be in the Wed or Thurs AJC? Our penny day is Thursday, so do I need to get the Thurs paper? Thanks!

      At Publix today and used my cpn from the green flyer on Sure deodarant $1 off, then combined it with MFC cpn for $1 off any sure product in . Paid .39 cents. Plus the one I bought had a TRY ME sticker on it. Mail in rebate for full puchase price. This is a $2 money maker.

        • savermac

          This flyer is the March Into Savings(it is green) i found this by the customer service desk. you can ask they should have one behind the desk. this one is dated Feb27th – Mar 26th.

      Publix in Lexington SC changed the penny item to a 4 pack of Publix toilet paper. Even though they had tortilla chips on the chip aisle they said they did not have enough to put on the display at the front of the store so they had to change it:(

    • ginnyw

      I really wish I needed food this week! Would love some penny totrilla chips! Thanks Jenny

    • Cathy

      I live in Florida and we do not have the penny item. Can someone tell me how it works? If I had a relative mail me one, would I be able to use it in Florida?

      • Anonymous

        I seriously doubt it. They don’t honor the penny item coupons. But, what it is: Every week there is one item available for a penny. You don’t know what the item is until you go into the store – or go to http://www.southernsavers.com (because Jenny is awesome!) with the coupon. You can get the item for a penny with an $10.00 purchase.

      Oh man! I forgot to pick up the penny item! They have stopped putting the item up front and you just have to find it in the store. Thank goodness Jenny tells us what the item is. Really helps knowing what you are looking for!

      Husband went 'power shopping' with all his coupons today, including the $5.00 off $25.00 Rite Aid one. Publix here in North Charleston, SC would not accept it. Said he had to use it separately. Guess they are discontinuing the option to use it with other coupons.

      Any word on this?

    • Sylvia

      The Publix on Harbison Blvd (Columbia SC) didn't have the Tortilla Chips as the penny item. They had applesauce then some kids juice.

    • does yours happen on Mondays and Sundays too? So does that mean that when SS makes her post we have already seen the item, or it's the upcoming Sunday and Monday item?
