The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday & Monday, 6/7- 6/8, is:

Publix American Cheese (16 slice)

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. 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**

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

      Hmmmm, we got this last week instead of the pasta shells. Wonder if we’ll be getting it again?

    • mary

      i live in the goose creek/north charleston, south carolina area, and i am unable to find to find the state paper, does anybody know where i could find it? thank you

    • bill

      Does anyone know if Publix will accept a BabiesRUs coupon as a competitor? There was a $3 off detergent coupon in the paper, that would be nice to use at publix.

    • Sheila

      I have used the BabiesRUs coupon as a competitor at Publix. I had no problems. I asked the service desk first and cashier put it right through. Hope that helps!

    • Stephanie

      bill~ its just going to depend on your store. Some stores are picky and will only allow grocery store competitor coupons.

    • Shannon

      My Publix said that the penny Item was just in the Atlanta area. We live in Savannah. Do you know if this is accurate?

      • Jenny


        The Savannah stores are considered in the FL region and many do not participate in the Penny Item each week. It is done in the rest of GA, SC, AL, and TN though.

    • Amy

      Hey, not sure where to put this but Kmart is doubling coupons right now. yay!!!

    • bill

      Thanks Sheila and Stephanie. And thanks Jenny for all the hard work.

    • .Jennifer

      Amy, where?

      I called the Lex, SC Kmart and they are not.

      Boo. I am so disappointed in them. I NEVER go to K-Mart and one reason is that ours hasn’t doubled coupons in months & months. I am so tired of seeing everyone else’s double and each time calling ours just to find out that they are not.

    • Katherine

      I had wondered about the Babies R Us coupons also. I was trying to determine if they are actually manufacturers coupons. They have a scannable bar code and begin with the #5?

    • .Jennifer

      p.s. I just fired off an email to them letting them know that I am tired of being bypassed when it comes time for the doubles. They haven’t doubled here at least since March (when I started couponing).

    • Katherine

      An FYI, I worked for Kmart for 5 years while in college and we NEVER doubled coupons the entire time that I worked there!

    • jamie

      I noticed that Babies R Us coupon too, and stacked with a MFR coupon on a sale week….that could be pretty great! I hope ours accepts it, they don’t have a Toys R Us nearby, so maybe it’s not a competitor…

    • Amy


      My Kmart is in gainesville, fl. Sorry you have to miss out :(

    • momof2

      I can’t wait until the mystery item is bleach again. I love it when Publix’s mystery item is any type of cleaning supply.

    • Denise

      Our Publix in Chattanooga, TN now reqires all internet coupons be printed in color. They will no longer accept black and white coupons – bummer!

    • Mina

      As is frequently the case, the Kennerly Rd store item was a surprise. Today it was Quaker Instant Grits 10 packs. I came out with a cheese grits variety pack. Recent weeks have been Nestle’s hot cocoa and individual snack 6 packets of Trail Mix. Their Mystery Penny Items have been going straight to our camping food stash.

    • Elizabeth

      Today I was told by my manager that next week the Penny Item is Greenwise Toilet Paper.

    • Don’t know if any of you have a Family Dollar nearby, but the fliers from their store have coupons for Glad Trash Bags, Bertolli/Ragu Sauce, Doritos, and others. These would be stackable with this weeks MFR and sales if it’s considered a competitor. Anyone ever tried such a store?

    • Melody

      I live in Douglasville, Ga. and the mystery penny is Publix’s brand 2 liters of soda this week not the cheese. Thanks Jenny for all of your help! Love the website

    • Jessica

      I looked in two different Publixes today to find the yellow Food Advantage Flyer and no dice…anyone have luck finding it????

    • jackie

      i just took 2 manufac Kraft mayo to publix today, since they have B1G1, they were black and white coupons? Publix took them with no problems.

    • .Jennifer

      Lex, SC ran out of cheese so they substituted Quaker Instant Oatmeal. Fine by me… I’m just happy to have something for a penny!

      Does anyone know when the new yellow advantage buy flier is going to be out? My store said that they hadn’t recieved any yet. I am so confused about when the new ones start!

    • Mina

      Jenny, I was told on Friday that there would be a break between Yellow Advantage Buy fliers. The new ones won’t be effective until the 13th and will be effective through July 10th. They are the 4th of July edition. That gap was the bad news.

      Here’s the possibly GOOD news for those of us who have stores that have refused to allow stacking since the wording change. The NEW flier simply states, “Limit one coupon per purchase,” instead of, “May not be used in conjunction with any other coupon.”

      The other good news is that Kraft will be releasing $50 worth of Summer Savings IP q’s on the 13th. I verified that on the Kraft site.

      I’m looking forward to this flier. There are some interesting deals in there.

    • Mina

      Jessica & Jennifer, the reason you haven’t been able to find them is that they haven’t been delivered to the stores, yet.

    • Pat

      I sent an email to Publix regarding the Family is It’s Own Reward program. This is then response I received back from them.
      It is strange that it never refers to the program by name, but what I inquired about was if they could mail one to me.
