The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 1/5 or Thursday 1/6, is:

Publix Fruit Punch

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.

**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!

      Does anyone know if there are any Publix in the Columbia, SC area that accept Target coupons?

      • Michellelhs

        the charleston area ones do but i'm pretty sure you don't want to drive 100 miles to use them. but last i heard none of the ones up there take them.

      • Mom2teenagers

        None of the area Publix stores in Columbia or Lexington accept Target q's.

      Actually you can get one of the Publix juices, doesn't have to be Fruit Punch (I got cherry this morn). It is like their version of juicy juice. ( =

      Ok I have been learning all the tricks to coupon”s for a couple of months and this week my printer went down…. so, I am resorting to finding other means of making good deals. This penny item that is being mentioned Publix, where exactly is this coupon that I will need for the purchase. I live in Ga and I know that Thursday is the new weekly ad but would love to score some juice while picking up my usual milk and bread. Thanks!

      I just purchase 8 boxes of Special K cereal at Kroger for for about $4. I bought 4 boxes of cereal at $1.99. Kroger automaticall gave me $4 off when i used my Kroger pluse card and then I used the coupons $1 off of 2 boxes of Special K. So I paid $1.92 for 4 boxes of Special K cereal.

        Went to look for the deal and the price listed was $1.99 after they took off the $4 (so I'm guessing that we both paid $1.50 per box).

      Im sure it has been stated before but can someone tell me where the penny item coupon is in the AJC (atlanta). I get the thursday paper and have never seen it. Not sure if i am missing it or if it is in the wednesday paper instead.

        Rbs, look on the bottom of the second page of Thursday's Living section, or maybe it's the food section. It is hard to find.

        • Rbs44

      Ours was Publix Pizza in Montgomery, AL. :) And I had the best experience at my store today. I was kind of nervous because my fav cashier told me yesterday that she wouldn't be working on Wed anymore & I thought, now to find a new one who doesn't mind all my coupons! But, found one I did! She even had extra Special K $1 off coupons that she used on my order – I only had the B1G1 – I was so excited! :)

      The penny item at the Hoover Publix was juice and the cashier told me I had to have a coupon. That has never happened to me there before.

    • sm

      From Laurel Springs Publix…..On the receipt, my penny item was $0.01. This was 1st time for me. In the past, it shoud rang up full price and cashier would deduct the price after I gave cashier the coupon.
      Is this new? Does that mean we don't need Mystery coupon anymore? How about other stores?

    • Nik

      HI, sorry to ask such a basic question. I live in Atlanta, GA and get the Thursday – Sunday paper. Where in that Thursday paper is the penny item coupon? I haven't been able to locate it.

      • Nik

        Please disregard question, after reading other comments I see the answer from Gracie1. Thanks!
