The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 3/30 or Thursday 3/31, is:

Publix Bleach

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!

    • Helen

      Can anyone tell me where to find the penny item coupon? I could definitely use the bleach for my swimming pool! :)

      • Jeanking

        The Penny item coupon is in the Charleston, SC post and Courier on page 5-A today, March 30, 2011.

    • Savergirl

      Okay, I'm probably overlooking it somewhere, but I can't find the Publix coupon in my Spartanburg paper. Anyone found it?

      • Say1399

        Call your store our here in Chattanooga no longer require the coupon so they aren't putting it in the paper. Took me several weeks to figure that out.

      • Utgradgal

        Usually in the first section, in the first 4 or so pages.

      • Mandy M.

        I've never had to use a coupon to get the penny item.

    • Shelleyschu

      Yeah. I need bleach. Can Publix line up some free coffee next week!?

    • Sanford

      Does Publix in Brunswick, Georgia participate in the penny item?

    • miriam silva

      yall lie to me i went to the store and their was no special i felt stupid……i was suppose to pay 10.00 bt i paid 23.00 that was not right…

      • Ashleyw81

        No need to accuse anyone of lying…perhaps your store does not participate, or maybe your Publix has their penny deal on Thursdays instead of Wednesday. Jenny mentioned both of these possibilities in her disclaimer about the Publix Penny item.

      • Jamieteaches

        I don't think you read the deal correctly. It's just one item for a penny. It wasn't going to cost you $10 for all your groceries. It's up at the front next to customer service usually.

    • Christina

      I haven't found the penny item yet.. I don't think our stores participate in Athens/Statham/Winder.. area.. BUT, I always forget to ask…silly me. :)

    • Mandy M.

      The Publix in Cool Springs (Franklin, TN) did beed stock instead for some reason. I'm totally cool with that because I use more of that than bleach!

      • Mandy M.

        oops, that was supposed to read “Beef” not Beed”

    • Amber

      Thanks for everything, Jenny! I used a lot of your acorn deals from the weekly Plublix sale ad to total $10 pre-coupons…I got :

      7 jars of Earth's Best baby food
      French's mustard
      2 packs of cat treats
      Scotties tissue

      All for less than $3! Great way to start my Thursday!

    • Eagles Landing Publix in Stockbridge says you have to have the penny coupon :(

    • Jim

      Is the penny coupon in Beaufort SC? What newspaper?

    • Cumming, GA penny item was Ghiradelli Brownies instead of bleach… YUM… but coulda used bleach.

    • Jamieteaches

      My Publix had Peter Pan peanut butter. I was SO happy!

    • Sandie

      It would be helpful if the penmny info came out of Tuesdays. I do my shopping on Wednesday early morning. I don't get a Wednesday paper if the penny special isn't something I can use. Now I have to wait until I get to the store to know what it is for that week. Thanks, Sandie

    • Teresa

      If anyone got a rain check for Kibbles N Bits last week I have some coupons that I found and was not able to use in time. I am sick about this, its a great deal and I don't want it to go to waste
