Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 3/28 or Thursday 3/29, is:

Publix Bleach

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.

**Note: FL and some Coastal GA stores DO NOT participate in the Penny Item**

    • The Publix in Anderson, SC on Hwy. 81 had the Publix brand Oreo cookies for the penny item.  When I looked on the receipt though, it said that the penny item coupon was for the bleach.  Just an FYI for anyone else that will see this.

        Yeah this happened to me before.  An employe of Publix responded to my post that the Penny Item is up to each stores discretion.  I believe cookies were the penny item last week, so maybe they had a bunch left over they’re trying to get rid of them. :-P

      Interesting… another site announced it will be boxed mac and cheese. I vote for bleach!

      Where do you find the penny coupon?

      I’m so annoyed.  We used to be able to get the penny item without a cpn.  Just had to buy the $10 min. of stuff. (Smyrna, TN)  Now, need the cpn.  That means it isn’t a penny item anymore.  It’s a .76 item (I was told it was .75 to get the local paper).  Does that also mean you need a separate cpn per penny item?   Used to be they’d let us get more than one penny item as long as each was in a separate tranaction.

    • Rosalie

      Is the bleach worth the .76?  How much is it normally?

      Thanks to whoever left the penny coupons at the Hardscrabble store in Columbia, SC.  I went with the .25 clorox coupon in hand and was thrilled to get bleach for a penny.

         Our ad starts on Wednesday. It is usually in our local paper somewhere the day the Publix ad comes out. You have to hunt for it sometimes.

          Thanks!  Have a nice weekend.

      I think the bleach would be worth buying the newspaper, I’m sure its priced at at least $2. I’m hoping I can find the coupon in the AJC. This is my first time trying the penny item deal. Well see how it goes..did anyone use the AJC and know where the coupon is?

      • ireneY

        It’s on bottom of page 2 in the living section. Some places don’t even require coupons. Ask the express lane cashiers — they tend to be the friendliest, IMO.

      Does anyone know if the penny item in the Atlanta Georgia norhern suburbs is bleach or mac n cheese?  I don’t use bleach but my kids love pasta!  thx!

      • AP

         I know its too late now, but it was bleach in Buford GA. :(

        • Carolyn

          Thanks so much!  That makes me glad I didn’t go!
