The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 4/6 or Thursday 4/7, is:

Publix Deluxe Mac and Cheese

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!

      At my Publix, in Auburn Alabama our penny item was Publix cola, and you do now have to have the coupon. THX, Melody

      • HaleyH

        Melody, I live in Auburn and am interested in participating in the penny item. Where do I get the coupon?

        • You can find it in the Wednesday or Thursday paper, whichever day your Publix store has the penny item.

      My Publix, in Valdosta Ga., doesn't even double, I doubt they do the penny item either.

      So, if you don't usually get the paper, and your store requires it, any ideas where to get the coupon w/o buying the paper? I don't know many people where I live since I'm only visiting for a few months…I know I could use ECB or Ups or RR to purchase it but is there a place you can get the paper for really cheap?

    • Centarella

      How do you know what the penny item is each week ? Is there a sign in the store, etc ? For instance some people said that it was mac n cheese and one said cola …thanks!

      • Kratie00

        There is usually a display right by the front. Some stores I've been in actually put the items in a bin in the middle of the aisle right by the registers, others put them on an endcap right by the registers…

        • Centarella

          thank you very much!

    • Kratie00

      The penny item at my Mt. Juliet, TN store was bread crumbs…

    • SchoonCR

      In Auburn, AL it was Publix brand soda. Boooo :)

    • Marissa

      It was bleach again in Charleston, SC. I would have rathered the mac n chez but I'd take anything for a penny.

    • brandi

      Do the stores in Murfreesboro, TN require the coupon?

    • Spence0258

    • Monicadawn76

      I can't find a penny coupon in my paper. Does that mean my store doesn't offer it?
