The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 12/29 or Thursday 12/30, is:

Publix Grape Juice

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!

      Nothing to do with the penny items, but does anyone know if the Publix in Lexington SC will accept Harveys Coupons?

      • They will not. The closest Harveys to us is around 150 miles. Sorry.

      I only buy Sunday papers. How do I acquire this penny item coupon?
      Do I buy a local paper on the spot?
      Will that ruin the savings?
      Which day of the week paper will it be in?

      My town has no paper and the town beside me does not carry Red Plum.
      Would it be cheaper to sub to this so so paper monthly for the penny item alone?
      I still have to buy a big city paper for SS, PG, and SS etc..

      Also, I have no Publix but can commute to 2.
      One of them starts their sale on Wed, the other Thursday?
      Will this mean I need to buy a paper each time on the spot maybe?

      Thanks and sorry for so many question!

        The penny item coupon is “hidden” somewhere in the paper either on Wed or Thurs (whichever day your ad starts). I would check with both stores before purchasing a paper, because neither of the stores I shop at require that coupon. If they do require it you will need to purchase the paper. I wouldn't buy a paper until you know what the item is that week. Just because sometimes it isn't something you will use….

      Why is the schedule off this wk? I realize they did the Christmas one for 1.5 wks, but are they going to a new schedule for the new year?

      • No we will back to the normal routine with the new ad that starts Saturday. They do this every christmas mostly to get an add entirely for new years to capitalize on the deals that folks are looking for specifically for New Years.

      where do i find the penny coupon at in the paper? sorry im new to this! lol

      • Couponcrystal

        You can find it hidden in the paper on the day your sale starts (either Wed or Thursday). Check with your local Publix. Some stores don't require the coupon.

          thanks so much!

          Do you know which website I can print the penny item coupon from?

      Jenny, I just wanted to see if you had any update on the penny items stopping for the new year? I know that in some of your classes you had spoken that they may stop in the new year. If they do try an discontinue these offers, do you “honestly” think we as couponers have any pull by contacting them? Just shy of begging I'm sure we could fill up their in box!!!!! :)

      totally and completely off topic.

      but why do manufacturers care if stores double their coupons? And do stores have to not double if the coupons say do not double?

      Also, the manufacturers coupons that say good only at publix or kroger or wherever, can they do that. wouldnt that just be a store coupon?

      Our Publix in Warner Robins, GA, said that the penny item was Frosted Flakes when I went.
