The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 3/23 or Thursday 3/24, is:

Publix Sandies Cookies

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'm going to be in Columbia tomorrow and will be visiting the Two Notch Road store. Is the coupon for the penny item in The State newspaper today or will in be in their tomorrow? And what day can I use it? Sorry for all the questions, but I don't normally shop at Publix so I'm confused. Thanks for the help.

        In Spartanburg,the coupon is in the A section of the Herald Journal.It's not always in the same place in “A”,so you have to look.I'm not sure about The State,but I do know it all happens on Wed.(coupon/sale/etc.)At our store,if you wait too late,you'll lose out on the 1st penny item and have to get a substitute(usually hot dogs at our store),so get there early.Hope I helped.

          Thank you so much!

        I live in the Columbia area and the penny item coupon is only good on Wednesday in our area. It's in The State paper today.

          Thanks so much for your help!

      Is the Penny Item a “Limit 1”?

      • it is. Most (if not all) stores will only allow you 1 penny item per transaction… doesn't mean you can't go to a couple different Publix :)

    • Grnacrz

      Is there a place online where you can print this coupon? We don't get the paper on weekdays.

      @ Anne Pelnar
      yes there is a limit one item per customer

    • Growl. Our Publix in our neighborhood has not required a coupon for the past 8 weeks. Suddenly, today they do? Seriously? Also, I saw Cuties tangerines in there today. For $8.50 a box! No wonder the Kroger across the street is doing so well!

      I tried to use a one of the Family Dollar coupons for Kraft dressing and one for Kraft BBQ sauce at my Publix in Athens, GA tonight and the refused to take them. The cashier checked with Customer Service who confirmed for her that Publix does not accept Family Dollar coupons. She said they will only accept Target and Kroger. Has anyone else run into this at any other Publix stores?

      • Love

        Yes, I live in Atlanta, GA and most will only take Target and Kroger though I haven't come across any actual Kroger store coupons. There was an Publix in Douglasville I used a Walgreens coupon at though.

      • Gail

        My Publix will not take Family Dollar Q's either. Nor will they take Lowe's…which I can see but I missed out on a real DEAL with a Britta pitcher…:<( They are good about all the others, though.
