The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 9/01 or Thursday 9/02, is:

Publix Tortilla Chips

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 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!

    • Jenni

      Yummo! That, plus the Green Giant/Betty Crocker deals means I am headed to Publix today!

    • Is the deal a 'one per customer' thing? I'm having a nacho bar at my daughter's party this weekend and need probably 3 or 4 bags.

      • Rebekah1g

        You have to do separate transactions. I tried getting 3 deals last week when I spent $30. They said separate transacations!

        • Thanks! I have a Publix litterally 2 minutes from my house so I can just stop by going and coming home that day. And have my hubby stop too. :)

      Can someone tell me where the penny item coupon is located in the Charleston Post & Courier? Is it in the Sunday paper or the Wednesday one? I've looked at both and can't seem to find it anywhere! Thanks so much!

      • Jacqui

        The penny coupon is located on page 5A of Wednesday’s Post & Courier.

      • andrea

        It is in the Wednesday paper. Usually on the 3rd or 4th page of the main section of the paper.

      • Rachel

        It is in the Wednesday paper & it is usually on pg 2A or somewhere in that section.

        • Rachel

          Also it says something like See what .01 can get you at Publix.

      • Angelcats6

        It is found in the Wednesday paper, usually in section A.

      I'm going to be in Kennesaw tomorrow (my only access to a Publix) and want to try the penny item. What's the least expensive newspaper that carries the coupon and do they sell those newspapers at Publix? Thx

      • See if the store will let you do it without the coupon. It will be in the AJC for sure but I'm not sure how much that runs in the stores. But they do sell it at Publix.

        • sharon60

          Thanks, I got the Marietta paper for 50cents, so thrilled with my 51cent bag of tortilla chips

    • Rachel

      Does the penny item vary in states? A couple weeks ago the penny item was paper towels but when I got to the store in was publix salad dressing. This was not the 1st time that this happened. Also, there are 2 stores close to me & 1 store will have 1 item as the penny item while the other (who doesn't require the coupon from out of the paper) has another item as the penny item.

      • June

        Stores often choose their own penny item. Especially if they neglect to pre-order the right one.

      • Elisa

        Rachel I actually like that and would take advantage and get at least one each of the different penny items!

    • Cobra851

      Hi I'm on my first week of this so is the Atlanta market on Wed or Thurs?

      • Tarlee

        It depends….They have different areas. (very confusing)

        • Charles

          Great. Thanks lol

    • Bena

      Hey i like new southern savers web site….Thanks

    • Mcpaskel

      I didn't want to buy a paper so I printed the above that sort of looks like a coupon and they took it! Thanks1

    • Mcpaskel

      They were out of tortilla chips but had Lipton tea-bags instead for the penny.

    • JJ

      Publix Corporate Office is now requiring that every store require their customer to have a penny coupon to be eligible for the purchase of the mystery item.

    • I recently got a subscription to the AJC but haven't been able to find the coupon. Where is it exactly?
