      if you buy $30 worth of groceries can you get 3 of the “penny items”?

      • Pricefamily0613

        no, there is a limit of one “penny item” per customer, no matter how much money you spend (as long as you spend a minimum of $10).

      Publix must be having an off week. My store – Greenville, SC (Pelham Rd) had Graham crackers…however it rang up the discount as water. Oh well it was worth a penny!  :)

      • EDWARDS_03

        Yea!   That was how mine was with the Frenchs mustard….. it showed it being that water when they did the discount.  I dunno… :)  I love mustard that, so I was cool :)

    • BoonaMom

      Publix in Lee Branch in Inverness changed their penny item all day. When I went it was 8 O'Clock Coffee!! What a great penny item. I am thinking about getting another coupon from my neighbor and going back for more!

    • Jessh

      I dont get where I am to get this coupon- is it hidden in the sunday paper or do i have to get wednesdays paper? Also, I live in GA and I just looked on the publix wesite and the deals are the same ones from this past week. Does this mean that they do the new ad in my area on thursday?

      • Allie

        I live south of Atlanta, was never able to find the penny item coupon. I finally asked my cashier where is the coupon located because I never can find it…she said that I didn't need one–WOO HOO!  
        Also my add begins on Wednesday…hope this helps :-)

      • Couponsforcarrie

        I live in Paulding county and you can get one in the Paulding News that cost $.25 or you can subscribe for a year.  Or you can find in the Atlanta Const. Journel but that costs more and sometimes is not worth it unless you have a subscription.  Hope this helps.

      • The AJC has the penny coupon at the bottom of the page in the “Living” section.  Depending on what county you are in and when your sale starts over, it will either be in the Wednesday or Thursday copies.  My local paper also publishes it in the Thursday edition and it is usually at the bottom of the second page.

    • Airvan83

      just got back from my Publix in Goodlettsville, TN and the penny item wasnt the water. It was heinz ketchup. Still a good deal but would have rather had the water since I dont use that much ketchup.

    • Can you only get the penny item on the day that the sale comes out (Wed for me)? Where do you find the penny item? In the Publix sale paper or in the newspaper?

      • Airvan83

        yes, you can only get it for one day (wed or thurs depending on your area). i usually just look on this site for it if i cant get out in the morning but it should also be in your local paper for that day.

        • Okay thanks so much for your reply! I'm new to couponing so I'm just trying to figure out how everything works! :]

    • Supercoup Rothenberger

      Has anybody ever found the penny item coupon in the Cherokee County, GA local papers? Buying the AJC for $1 to get something for a penny is getting old.

      • jessica

        my publix in GA doesnt require the coupon.. maybe ask and see if yours still does (at first they did now they do not:)

      • Couponwilliams
