      I don't see the coupon, is itin the USA Today?

    • Sarah


      I don't see the coupon, is it in the USA Today?

      • Jessmender

        Do you mean the penny item coupon, or the $5/$30?  I'm not sure, but I think the penny item coupon is in your local paper, since the first day of the ad and whether or not stores do the penny item is regional.  For me it's in the Atlanta Journal Constitution.

        • Patti

          I live in Tennessee and it was last week for the $5/$30 which would be week of 6/1 thru 6/7

          • Reneeswebb

            What paper did u find it in?

    • Guest

      Where is the $5 off $30 coupon?

    • Emily

      Does anyone know what paper has the $5/$30 coupon?

    • Ketta

      Is this the same $5 off $30 purchase that was in the flyer last week?  or is this a new one?

    • Aj27

      Does Florida get the $5 off $30 coupon?

      • Scott

        I see $5/50 coupons and sometimes $10 gift card with $50 purchase; never seen the 5 off 30 in FL

    • Ketta

      Unless I missed it, there is no $5 off $30 in the Greenville News.  Penny item coupon on page 3 in section A.

      • Luv2save

        Greenville had the $5off $30 last week

    • Chris

      So has anyone seen the $5 off 30 Q today?  I checked my MDJ cover to cover and nothing.  My penny Q comes tomorrow so I'm wondering if it might be in there with that.

      • Kristin

        Last week my $5 off Q came on Thursday in the freebie papers.  I'm in the Atlanta metro area (East Cobb).

        • Jessmender

          Oooooh….I wonder if I still have that….

        • Sterling Tucker

          (COBB COUNTY GA) Ditto!

        • Zombiemommy

          They stopped throwing the free papers in our yards on Thursdays late last year. They throw some silly one that are coupon-less on Sunday mornings here in my Marietta hood.

          • Betty40

            My friend and I just started doing all this about 6 weeks ago and she was getting the free AJC paper in metro ATL, but last week nothing.  We did a little looking around and found that they  base where you get the freebie on the “neighborhood home value/income”. Wrong so very wrong…but I digress… Point is I hope that her neighborhood gets it this week.  It seems that here Atlanta Metro (according to my local Publix) if you don't order (pay) paper delivery you don't get the $5/$30 coupon the only other way is if the AJC deems your neighborhood “WORTHy” of getting the free Thursday  “perk” paper.

            • Chris

              Keep in mind that sometimes the big papers will pick a neighborhood to do a promotion in so they try and get new subscribers.  When my mom threw the paper in S. Fla many moons ago they would have her do that every once in a while.  That could be what they were doing as well – just a promotional period hoping you'll miss it when they stop and subscribe.

    • Cbeard2

      question:  does the 5/30 coupon arrive on the same day as the mystery penny item coupon?  My area changes sales on TH – does that mean the coupons are in the TH paper (or Wed)?

      thank you!

      • Chris

        If your ad starts on Thurs then the penny Q will be in that paper as Jenny states above.  The $5 off 30 Q is up for debate – there was one last Weds and we're all trying to figure out if there will be another one.  Just be on the lookout for it.

    • Tmfloves

      My store starts its new ad on Thursday. So the coupon would be in Thursday's papers and not Wedn, correct?

      • Chris

        If your ad starts on Thurs then the penny Q will be in that paper as Jenny states above.  The $5 off 30 Q is up for debate – there was one last Weds and we're all trying to figure out if there will be another one.  Just be on the lookout for it.

      • Tmfloves

        I just noticed that I was not being clear on my question. I am sorry, but I was trying to refer to the $5 off coupon. Thank You

    • Christine

      Where would the $5 off coupon be in the paper?  I can't find it.

    • couponeagle11

      tuscaloosa news no 5/30

    • Guest

      Hmmm. I wonder if the reference to a $5 off $30 purchase coupon in the paper could be a leftover note from last week's Penny Item posting.  Maybe a copy and paste error…?

      • BethanyAB

        That's what I'm wondering. I picked up the AJC today … no coupon. Last week it was in Wednesday's paper.

        • Abby

          I'm confused – I saw Jenny's post last week, but then there were dozens of commenters that the AJC had nothing, so I didn't get a paper. There was one last week? But none today? Thanks!

          • Zombiemommy

            I heard the paper was only in the home delivery ones?

    • Rebecca

      Glad I didn't waste my money on a paper today!!!

    • AnsleyC

      I think this was copied from last week, it wouldn't have been originally posted as an “update”.

      • dolly

        I received a sales paper with my Monday newspaper titled “Summer Breakfast Sale”.  There was a $5 coupon on back for for June 1 – June 14.  In Spartanburg there are usually extra coupons in my Monday paper.

    • Connie

      the 5 dollar counpon was in last weeks paper not this weeks . It must have been a error. I work for the local paper and we did not insert one this week.

      • cecilia

        you work for the paper! man i bet your stock pile is huge!!!

    • Judy

      shoot! i just ran out to get the paper and should have read the comments before doing so! at least it was only $0.75 wasted…

    • MrsVeronicaR

      Very frustrated! I bought a Greenville News today hoping for the $5 coupon (which I see now was wrong) as well as to get the penny item. And I don't see that either! I would assume that would be published in the weekly ad but that was not included in the paper I bought. What gives!

      • MrsVeronicaR

        Never mind about the penny item, I finally found the coupon. Still a little peeved about the $5 coupon though…

        • Moore0902

          I got the 5.00 off coupon in the store ad papers that was in my mailbox yesturday!

          • Jcllcox542

            how did u get that store ad paper?

    • Jcllcox542

      Todays B'ham Wednesday paper 6/8 is not showing these 2 coupons in them? Am i missing something?

    • Ruthilein

      cut out coupons today for today's shopping – alas, no cherios coupon in ss 5/8 nor eckrich coupon in ss 5/15 – ??

      • Chris

        I don't remember when it came out but I have one in my binder for Eckrich – $0.55/1 exp 6/25.

      • cecilia

        it seems like it is different coupons that are given in different cities… because i just moved here to florida from texas and my coupons are different then the ones given here becuase i have my dad send me the ones from texas still

    • Tuty8306

      I got todays news paper…however I did not see a coupon for $5 discount :-( Apopka

      • Holtonsandra

        I did not either and I was not happy about it. I bought the paper for that reason. : (

    • Robin

      I don't understand the Penny Item how do you get it?

    • Georgiabari

      OK, so where is this $5 off $30 Publix coupon?

    • Thechainbreaker

      When you say 'today' do you mean Thursday, or was this updated Wednesday? Cause last week I rushed out and bought 4 Thursday papers and there was no coupon! Turns out it was in Wednesday's and the update must have been Wednesday as well. Please, please specify what day 'today' is! Thanx a bunch! Ever so grateful! :)

    • Sybisue

      I like in the Birmingham area and could not find the penny item in the paper yesterday (Wednesday). Any veterans be so kind as to tell me which section it is in?

      • Kbierman63

        I am a Birmingham resident as well and I did not find the coupon either.  However, we did receive one last week so maybe they are not going to give us one this week!

    • Tammy Sanders

      At the Publix on Hwy 155 in Locust Grove Ga, the penny item was changed to Windex today!

    • Annieweaver

      Is the 5 off 30 not in Fla.?  I can't find it… :(

    • Carrieluvsgreg

      In northeast Florida we recieved a $5 off $30 last week in the valuewrap paper that comes in the mail.  I've already clipped and used mine!  ;>)

    • Newbeginnings

      Since I only subscribe to the Sunday newspaper It would have been nice to know in which paper the $5 off $30 coupon could be found. Thank you!

    • Nessa0716

      found 5 of the $5 off $30 in the garbage can next to my apartment complex's mailbox! Score!!!

    • Gdsab20

      savannah, ga store's do not take target.

    • Cindy

      I've bought the paper two weeks in a row now based on your report of a $5 coupon and no coupon. Is it in the regular flyer? Or what?

    • madison

      I am newbie to the coupon world. When Publix has the penny item is there a limit to the amount of penny items you can buy? (I obviously would not clear the shelves) Thank you!

    • Jennuggett

      how do you find out the penny item and how do they know to give it to you for a penny

    • Bob

      Don't bother asking questions here… never a response!

      • Chris

        If you ask a question a lot of people try to get back to everyone.  However if the same question keeps getting asked over and over it gets to be tiresome – sorry.  If you have a basic question then be sure to visit the tutorials.  Sometimes taking a quick read through the posts will reveal the answer as well because someone else may have already asked the same question previously.
