The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 5/25 or Thursday 5/26, is:

Publix Glass Cleaner or 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 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.

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!

    • JoJo

      I wish Florida did the Penny Item :(

    • Cmroberts 0304

      So is it either/or, or do you get both the glass cleaner and paper towels ???  Anyone know ??

      • flower_mom

        It was only glass cleaner at my Publix today…They didn't know anything about the paper towels.
        A penny is a penny, tho!

        Thanks Jenny!

    • Akforgetnot

      is there a limit?  do u need one coupon for each?

      • Prsol

        Only one item per coupon, per transaction and per trip. :(

        I get 2 newspapers on Thursday (my boss has 2 different subscriptions and let's me have the coupons).  I can only use one of them (I don't have the time or energy to visit the store, or a different location, to get a second item for another $10 worth of stuff)

        • Prsol

          P.S. I usually end up giving away my 2nd Penny Item coupon.
          Love when that happens right in the moment when a customer is asking about it at the cashier, and they act like they don't know what the customer is talking about…. :P

    • Beth Anne

      They certainly go together, so I hope we get both with one coupon!  Thanks!

    • I was gonna say……….I live in Florida and never got nothing for a penny at publix LOL but I still love shopping there :)

      • Lrae17

        Unfortunately FL stores and some coastal GA stores don't participate in the penny item promo.

    • Mommyking

      I only saw and received glass cleaner this morning.

    • omg good penny item(s) Cant wait till tomorrow !!

    • AlliWood

      Is it locational?? We only have glass cleaner out in the Nashville/Murfreesboro area…

      • Delenalong

        where are you finding your item coupon at?  I live in Hermitage and the store here doesnt have the coupons and I cant find in the Tennessean extra that comes out Tues evenings…

    • AlliWood

      Is it locational?? We only have glass cleaner out in the Nashville/Murfreesboro area…

    • Kepodom

      where do you get the coupon?

      • Stacyannw

        you get the coupon in your local news paper (wed).  In the Bham news its on the second page down on the bottom right hand corner

    • Sdsemk

      Is the penny item coupon in the Wed or Thur Post and Courier in Charleston?

      • guest


    • Trish

      Is this BOTH glass cleaner AND paper towels?  I am in metro Atlanta.  Thanks!

      • Lrae17

        I was wondering the same thing since it's listed above using “AND”…you know us coupon readers…always reading the fine print!  ;)

        • Prsol

          it's either towels OR glass cleaner.
          Some stores may have BOTH items available as penny item and let you choose ONE deal per customer, per transaction, per trip.

          So, even if you cut 2 coupons, and try to apply one of them toward towels and the other towards glass cleaner on 2 different transactions (on the same trip), it wouldn't work.

    • Kara K

      Can someone please tell me where to find the Penny Coupon in the AJC?

      • Julianne P.

        It is on the front page of the newspaper on the back side at the bottom…its small so keep your eyes peeled on it. Hope this helps

      • Sis2

        In the Living section on page 2 at the bottom of the page.

      • Prsol

        I'm with Sis2… Living Section, Page 2, bottom right. It's like the size of a baseball card (landscape position) and printed in black and white (almost like they didn't want you to notice it! LOL…)

        As a reminder, the Penny Item Coupon deal is only good when you buy at least $10 worth of groceries (before coupons) on the Thursday that it's published. :-)

      • Kristin

        You can also ask at customer service.  I just found that out today, courtesy of a nice cashier.  ;-)

    • Amy

      Random question – Sadly, we do not have a Publix here in Virginia, but my MIL shops at one in Florida.  She calls it “Public” and I thought it was pronounced “Pub-licks.”  Could someone please tell me which one is right?  Thanks!

      • Guest

        More like the pub-licks…but more of the x sound! :)

        • Amy

          Thank you!  I don't know why that bothers me so much when she calls it Public :0  Now I have proof!!

          • ireneY

            Because she's your MIL! ;-)

    • guest

      Does anyone know where the publix penny item is located in the Mobile Press Register?

    • guest

      Nevermind our Publix store stinks they don't participate in the penny item or doubling coupons

    • Jmdigscapes

      Can any one explain to me why Fl stores do not participate in the double coupon nor the penny items deals?

    • TJGB

      Is there a limit on the penny items?

    • Jbearden4571

      When do the preview ads for Publix come out? Last week it was on Tuesday, is that when they always come out?
