The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 5/12 or Thursday 5/13, is:

Publix Greenwise Toilet Paper 4 pk

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 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!

      Where are the penny coupons located?

      • They are going to be somewhere in your newspaper today or tomorrow depending on what area you are in. They aren't in the Publix weekly ad, but usually in a small ad inside one of the sections.

        • amy

          Thank you so much..lol I've been searching the ad and could never figure out why I couldn't find the coupon!:)

    • missthemister

      Woo-hoo! Thanks for the heads up on this. Toilet paper and paper towels are always my favorite penny items.

      Yesterday (Tuesday 5/11) I went in to Publix @ Deerfoot exit (Trussville, AL) They had 25.4oz Pantene 2 for $5.89, they have a big orange sticker on them :)

    • Lori

      Somtimes Publix doesn't require the coupon. I won't have one this week and I called a head to make sure they would let me have the penny item w/o the coupon! They will!!

    • Ashley

      Does anyone know which paper (Wednesday or Thursday) the Publix penny item is in for the Atlanta area (AJC)? I usually don't bother with the penny item, but almost free toilet paper is too good to pass up! Also, do you have to use it on the day it comes out, or is it good for the whole week? Sorry for my dumb questions, but like I said I haven't done the penny item before!

      • Ashley

        Oops…I need to read more thoroughly before I start asking questions! I see where Jenny says it's good for one day only. So my only question now is if it's Wednesday or Thursday for the Atlanta area (AJC). Thanks!

        • Laura

          AJC on thurs – it is usually on the back of the first page of the living section.

      • lindsey

        I get mine out of the Gwinnett Daily Post, not sure about the AJC. We get ours delivered free because of Charter. Good luck!

      • Elizabeth

        It varies by county–we live in gwinnett, and it's Thursday. However we're close to Barrow, and they are Wednesday.

    • cherylkidd

      A Publix worker recently told me while helping me to my car that you can print the penny item coupon from the Publix website publix.com/coupons, but I'm not able to find it. Can anyone help? Even though they are always very willing to give me the penny item discount without a coupon when I ask, there are a few times when the cashier forgets to enter the code and I forget to keep reminding them. It would save my frustration just to be able to print the thing and take it along!

      For those that live in Beaufort SC and shop at the Lady's Island Publix, they are now requiring the coupon for the penny item, the coupon is found in “The Post and Courier” which is sold at that store for $0.75. You will have to know what the penny item is ahead of time!

      I checked with the Publix in my area and they do not participate in the Penny Item – which is Bluffton, SC
