Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 1/18 or Thursday 1/19, is:

Publix Paper Towels, single roll

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.

      Not sure where to type this, so I’ll just put it here…Does anyone know if Publix takes the “military manufacturer coupons” that are for the commissary?  They are all “5s” but say military manfacturer copuons.

      Before I waste my time and money purchasing a newspaper to get the coupon, does anyone know what the cost of this item is normally?

        it was 1.34 when i picked it up today. Thank goodness my publix store doesn’t require the coupon

      I’m sooo frustrated. At least 6 coupons weren’t  where they were supposed to be several in SS, RP and online printable ones. It seems that everything I needed a coupon for the coupon wasn’t available. I know that some are regional but it seems in Birmingham our coupon flyers miss a lot. the Muir tomatoes wasn’t available either so I couldn’t pair it with Publix store coupon. I really want to do this coupon thing but it is frustrating to spend so much time searching and then no coupon is available. Any suggestions to help me?

      Does anyone know if you can buy more than one penny item (paper towels)?

      • Hanna5

        If you have multiple coupons you can. You might have to do it in separate transactions though.

      Do I have to subscribe to the Wednesday paper to get this coupon? We’ve never needed it before, but now our store is expecting it. I’m super bummed! =(

      I need your help please. I went to Publix this morning to purchase Sambazon Juice. I had B1G1 and $2 off. The cashier would not let me use both coupons. Is that correct? I reviewed the policy and I am still confused. Thanks!

      Help!!!  For several months I have searched the paper inside & out and have yet to find this mysterious penny coupon!  Any hints as to where the coupon may be hidden?  I live in N GA so my Publix runs Thurs – Wed.  Any hints would be greatly appreciated!  Thanks!

        My store in Athens, GA will let you have the penny item without a coupon just as long as you spend $10.  Check with your store, they may do the same.
