The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday & Monday, 8/9- 8/10, is:

Publix Frozen Pizza!!

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 Publix Sunday Ad every week or somewhere in the Sunday Paper. Some stores do not require this coupon, but many have changed and do require it now, check with your store to find their policy.

**If your store has substituted something else but still has this item in stock you can ask to get the corporate decided item and most stores will let you**

Get all of this weeks Publix Deals and Coupon Matches!

Don’t for get your, Green Advantage Buy Items.  A new Yellow advantage buy list started yesterday, I will have any deals (not many) posted tonight.

**Note: FL and Coastal GA stores do not participate in the Penny Item promotion**

      I have been waiting for this one again since last October! I was so surprised last year at how good the Publix brand pizzas are. I just might have to make multiple trips today and tomorrow! :)

    • AngthecouponNERD

      Yess! I will split up my Publix shopping over 2 days just to get the pizza!

    • Vicki

      I got two papers and didn’t get a Publix ad in either one! So disappointed. :(

    • julie

      Where do I find the coupone for the 1 cent pizza? Is it just in certain area’s? The manager couldn’t find it either. :0(

    • Stacy K

      OK, is this right?? I got the Tyson frozen chicken tenders Q for $1 off (last week, I think), then now the Yellow Publix flyer for $1 off off and then add the FL $1 off Q??? That means $3 off 1 bag?? I will do it every week until they expire, if so!

      • Jenny

        Stacy K,

        The Food Lion $1 off Breaded Tyson is really a manufacturer coupon released by Food Lion, so it is not really a competitor coupon. You can use it with a store coupon and save $2 off but you can’t use it with another manufacturer coupon.

      Starting next week, our Publix is going to require coupon for the penny item. It is not always in the online circular. Any other way to get this without newspaper ad?

    • Donna

      All of my Publix stores will give me the penny item without the coupon. Sometimes I have to ask, other times they do it without even asking for the coupon.

    • Stacy K

      Thanks~I was just checking! I’ve never used 3, and I don’t want to tick my Publix people off, they’re usually so helpful!

    • shelly

      My Publix store had copied coupons for anyone who asked for them. (they didn’t get the ad in their papers either) That happened to me last week when I bought 10 papers from Kroger NONE of them had the Publix ad so I figured since I bought it at Kroger = No Publix ad.

    • becca

      my publix doesn’t even require the coupon

    • CouponNERD

      becca – which publix do you go to?
      I go to Gervais Place or Trenholm Plaza in Columbia and never get asked for it.

      Just a note – the Publix at Thornblade in Greer SC is going to be cracking down on their coupon policy. No coupons from other groceries unless it is a direct area competitor (i.e., they will not take Food Lion, Harveys, Kroger, or Harris Teeter coupons since there are none around). They will also no longer accept coupons from non-grocery stores (Target, CVS, etc). But they’ll still double, and they’ll still take direct competitor coupons. :)

    • GymboMommy

      The pizza is yummy!! YOU DON”T HAVE TO HAVE THE COUPON TO GET THIS!!!! They will normally ask you if you want the penny item. We just got done with supper and that’s what we had. I was very impressed with their brand pizza!

    • Jennifer

      Vicki, Julie, and others
      I went to Publix today in the Acworth area, and the customer service rep told me that the Publix fliers got left out of the Sunday papers this weekend. I don’t know how far reaching this was. My Publix had a copy that they would scan for you to get the penny pizza.

    • MarySC

      No pizza in Summerville SC. Cheerios instead, and some of the boxes had $1.50 off Pampers coupons on them, so I’m very satisfied!

    • Robin

      Jenny,
      Our publix evidently does not participate in the penny item. I occasionally have the coupon from buying out of town papers. Should they accept that and give it to me anyway? Is this a corp. Policy or what?

    • Susanne

      FL and some southern GA Publix stores do not double coupons or have the penny coupon.

    • Tracie

      Does the $10 required purchase include the price of the Penny item?

    • Mina

      No, the $10 purchase does not include the mystery item. It’s all other items BEFORE coupons are deducted. One penny more purchases the mystery item.

    • Mina

      Tracie, I should say that is the way it is at the stores where I shop.

    • Faith

      I was informed by Publix today that, after September 1st, if a competitor coupon requires a store card(or rewards key like Harvey’s) they will no longer be accepted.

    • Ryann

      The Gulf Shores, AL Publix also does not double coupons. Not sure if they participate in penny item.

    • Jenny P

      I just left the Publix in Lexington and they were using Lipton tea bags (regular or decaf) as their penny item. They still had some pizzas in the freezer section so I’m not sure why they were doing the substition but not a bad deal either way.

    • Mary Beth, Irmo, SC

      I just got back from the Harbison Publix and they did not double my coupons. Anyone know if they have quit doubling? I went to the Irmo one last week and they did.

    • Freedom

      Also make sure on the pizza that you dont grab the “premium”. I did this in error. They told me it was only good on the cheese, pepperoni, etc. Not the white pizza or Margerita (spelling?), etc.

    • Tracie

      My Publix switched the Penny item to Publix hot dogs and said it was because they were sold out. I had the pizza in my hand and said “there is 30 more in the case”. The cashier said, that’s the old penny item, not any more. So why tell me it was sold out?

    • Brandy

      The penny item at my Publix was a 24 ct package of Deer Park spring water. I would much rather have that, so I was very happy!
