The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 6/16 or Thursday 6/17, is:

Publix Vanilla Wafers

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 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!

    • Punkindoodl

      Do you have to have one coupon per penny item? Can you buy more than one penny item?

      • littlemama

        They will only let you get one penny item per $10 transaction. My Publix never makes me use the coupon. They always give it to me as long as I ask!

      • dcaylor

        You can only buy 1 penny item. They will charge you for anything over that.

      does publix still do buy theirs get ours for free deals

      • rachelmac13

        Yes they do. Last week they had buy certain baby items and get their generic free. I picked up 4 boxes of huggies wipes and got 4 boxes of publix wipes free. Each huggies wipe box was $3 and I had a $1 off each box. So 4 boxes at $3 each= $12 minus my $4 off in coupons = $8 for 8 boxes of wipes. GREAT DEAL!!!
        I just checked out the Publix website and I don't see anything listed as a buy theirs get ours this week, but I may not be looking in the right spots.

        • My store swore up and down that the buy theirs/get ours promo was only Johnsons & Publix baby shampoo and powder last week, not wipes. Very frustrating!

    • Diane

      So happy – what a great penny item!

      Everyone, check your boxes of vanilla wafers from last week! All of ours in middle TN had exp dates of 01-02-10 (SIX MONTHS AGO!). They are gladly exchanging them and are very apologetic.
