Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 9/19 or Thursday 9/20, is:

Publix 2 Liter Sodas

You can get the Publix Penny item with any purchase that is $10 or more before coupons. Most stores will require the penny item coupon found somewhere in your Wednesday or Thursday paper.

The Penny Item is for one day only, and will be the day that the ad starts in your area. This is Wednesday for all of SC and AL, and parts of GA, or Thursday for Northern GA.

        Any 2 Liter for .01 is good to me but since I do not have the daily paper delivered I usually have to purchase one to get the coupon.  That makes the soda $.76 which is too high for me.  My 2L soda price range is free up to .45      I do love the anticipation of what they are going to have as their penny item from week to week though.   What is everyones fav penny item?  Mine would have to be toilet paper, water bottles, coffee and pizza!!!!  :)

          Have you checked to see if your store actually requires the coupon?  I have always had mine with me but started noticing when the cashiers scan the penny item they just automatically take it off my bill. Finally I asked them if I need it and they said No. I get the Thursday paper as part of my subscription but I have quit clipping the coupon because my store never seems to even need it to give me the deal. I know not all stores are like this though..mine seems to be especially coupon friendly ( :  Btw, my favorite penny item is the frozen pizzas they did about a month ago!  Also like bottled water, ketchup and toilet paper…all staples in our house!

          I’m with you.  I like the whole penny item thing too, but my Publix (Smyrna, TN) requires the coupon now, making each penny item .76 like you said.  We buy the Publix Dr. P and like it but on its own, the price has increased so much in just the last few years….used to be .59 each for those….has gradually increased .10 at a time till it it now .99.  Being the penny item makes it a whole .23 cents off….whoopee!  By far my favorite penny item is toilet paper.  Was awesome when I could actually get that for a penny instead of .76.

      Im upset that since I signed up for my subscription back in early July that I actually forgot to look for the coupon. I remembered today but don’t see the coupon in my AJC; can someone help?

        It’s usually on the same page or thereabouts with the crossword puzzle.

        In my area, the penny item coupon is in the local paper, not the ajc.
