The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 7/28 or Thursday 7/29, is:

Publix Spring Water, 6pk 500ml bottles

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.

Get all of this weeks Publix Deals and Coupon Matches!

**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!

      I have never done the penny ad item…..is there a limit to how many you can buy?

      • my3sons

        you can only get one per coupon and only one per purchase

    • sandraj

      where is the penny item coupon?
      where in the g. news?

      this is such a bummer! The Publix on Hwy 6 in Columbia is now requiring the q for the penny item. And as it is only in Weds. paper, it is no longer a savings to buy the paper just for that coupon… :(

        you don't have to buy the paper. It's free on TheState(dot)com. Go to the site- go to subscribe up in the top left corner and select electronic version. You can get a free one-day pass to the electronic copy. Scroll over to page A4 and click on the ad and print. I do this every week.

          Thanks! I just printed mine off. :)

            by the way, when cutting it out you may want to leave The State's heading along the top which shows the date etc. I've had some Publix cashiers tell me that “we don't accept copies of the penny q” so I show them this was simply an electronic edition from The State and they take it.

            • yay!

              Wow -thank you so much for the tip. I live in ATL, so I doubt this will work for me, but its worth a shot!! I will also try and google and see if there's a way to do this in GA.

          Thank you, thank you, thank you. My publix just started requiring the coupon and I hate to pay for the paper just to get the penny item. You really saved my shopping fun on Wednesdays!

        • Kristen

          AWESOME! I never thought about this!
          I was always taking it from the paper at work! haha!

      • Robin

        The cashier just told me that today – bummer! One more disappointing thing in the hunt for good deals! I refuse to buy that paper for a coupon!

    • JL

      Does anyone know where the coupon is located in the Tennesean? Do you have to buy a paper or can you get it fom rhier web site?

    • I went this a.m. and got mine along with buying 120.00 dollars in groceries for a grand total of 44.13! Whoo hoo! I was glad the cashier reminded me of the penny item, b/c I almost went out without it. I LOVE ME SOME PUBLIX!
