The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 3/17 or Thursday 3/18, is:

Publix Paper Towels

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 now 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! There is also a new Yellow Advantage Buy Flyer and a Green Advantage Buy with lots of other deals!.

**Note: FL and 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!

      In the Tennessean, the penny item coupon is on the bottom of the page 3A.

      Page A8 in The State. Don't forget to get the one-day electronic version for free!

    • KHutch

      Publix at Kennerly Crossing doesn't require the coupon. I think I'll start going there more often :)

    • Christine

      Publix at Route 6 in Irmo does not require it either – at least not as of last week….

    • Cathy

      I can't find the coupon in my sunday paper. Can someone tell me if it changes places or where it is? Thanks! Greenville newspaper!

      • Bobbie

        It has started being in my Wednesday's paper. The Birmingham News

    • mommydub

      Anybody in the Atlanta area know which paper this is in? The AJC??

      • clayomayo

        It should be in tomorrow's AJC in the food section, I believe.

        • Jan

          It is usually on page 2 of the living section of Thursday AJC

          • clayomayo

            Thanks, Jan, I forgot that the AJC pushed all of their sections together, LOL.

      • Andrea

        It's also in the Gwinnett Daily Post, page 3A. A much cheaper paper than the AJC if you have access to it.

        • GA Mom

          I live in Alpharetta, do you know where I might be able to get the Gwinnett Post? How much is the Thursday paper?

      Where can I get coke coupons?

      • Linda

        I got a coupon for a free 12 pack of cokes from mycokerewards.com. I think it was around 200 points, which is really easy to earn.

    • Mom2teenagers

      Publix on Hardscrabble in Columbia had Publix bleach as the penny item.

    • Linda

      Our penny item in Winder, GA wasn't paper towels. It was saltines, which is still good. Is there a reason why it wasn't the same as everywhere else?

    • Where do you find the one-day elec. version?

      • renep22

        there is a pdf option at the top of the screen on the THE STATE paper website. It gives you a one free day pass.

    • renep22

      Greenville News coupon is on page 5A

    • alissabeth

      Vaughn Rd Publix in Montgomery will allow you to get the penny item without coupon. You have to tell them you'd like to get it. Thanks to the woman who shared this info with me today! I wanted those basically free paper towels!!

    • lisarninal

      My Publix (Madison, AL on Hwy 72) had Ragu Pasta sauce as the penny item

    • Diana

      The penny item in Goose Creek, SC is Kraft salad dressing (normally $3.19). I didn't really need it since I was stocking up on some wishbone dressing already, but for a penny, who cares what it is?!!!!

    • Tara

      Publix on Dorchester Rd., North Charleston, SC had a choice of Smartsnacks caramel popcorn or kettle corn.

    • Mom in Summerville

      Publix on Trolley Road did not want to take the printed penny item coupon from The State yesterday. They talked to the manager (twice), and finally decided to let me use it this time. It was not a problem last week, but this week they said it looked like I'd copied the coupon. I know it's just a roll of paper towels, but I just wish they would be consistent with their policy

    • Sally

      I bought the Chef Boyardee and the Hefty paper plates and had 2 50 cents off coupons for both. When I got home I realized that only two of the coupons had doubled. I went back to the store today and they said that some coupons won't let them double and since I didn't have the coupon for them to check their was nothing they could do about it. Did anyone else have this problem with either of these coupons? Thanks.

      Sorry – I posted in the wrong place.
