The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 2/16 or Thursday 2/17, is:

Publix Greenwise Bath Tissue

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!

      The Mt. Pleasant, SC store at Queensborough has Cheerios as penny item. Extra bonus – there is a $1.50/1 Pampers q on the box!

        Remember, you can always tell them that you want the corporate item, the manager may have to come out and approve it, but you have that option.

      Just discovered the Publix in Loganville, GA does the penny item on 2 days. Wed and Thur. The local paper, The Walton Tribune, which only comes out on Wednesday, prints the coupon in that day's issue. While the AJC paper prints it in Thursdays edition, since that is the day most of the sales start in GA. The cashier said that they were the only Publix that does that. :)

      I received a family sized box of Special K Cereal as the penny item at Publix at Thornblade on Batesville Rd. Wow!

    • Dawn

      I live in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina and our Publix ad starts on Thursdays. We must be considered Northern Georgia.

    • Stephchaapel

      I don't see one in my AJC today. Am I looking in the wrong spot?

      I have a question. It was my understanding that you are ok staking different Publix coupons for one product that has different numbers on it. Does anybody know anything about this? This Publix keeps changing their policy every time, depending on cashier and manager, is annoying! Thanks

      I don't get a paper–to my Greenville neighbors, what page/which day is the penny item coupon found?

    • hokie96

      Jenny, I had checked the coupon policy you had for Publix and when I went into my local store I was told that only the Atlanta store doubled coupons less than .50 due to competition and they wouldn't accept more than 1 competitor coupon for multiple items. I asked for a copy of the coupon policy which they didn't have. Did I miss this in the coupon policy listed on the site?

      Publix in Savannah does not do the penny item they stated that it's just for Atlanta. However they went ahead and honored it Thursday. So I was able to get 2 packs of toilet paper for a penny each. It never hurts to ask.

      Where is the penny coupon located? I can never find it in the paper!
