Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 8/10 or Thursday 8/11, is:

Publix Cole Slaw

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.

    • Wwkkss07

      The State SC paper has a printable copy of the penny item coupon on their website for people that don't get the weekday papers

    • Dford45

      bagged or from deli?

      • Tmishler


        • CCShad

          sweet cole slaw from deli

    • mommyof1

      I wish Coastal Ga would do the penny item.. we double coupons here, so i dont understand why we dont have this promo =(  and its usually on something we will eat/use.

    • ireneY

      The penny items have changed up quite a bit. Before, they would offer staples like bleach, paper towels, peanut butter, oatmeal, bottled water, etc. Seems like it all changed with the change in coupon policy.

    • Tennille

      cole slaw??? Boo!!

      • Sis2

        I love their cole slaw!

    • Palerthanpink

      Is it .01 before or after you use your coupons?

      • Jessmender

        $10 before coupons

    • Tessa

      It's too bad that here in FL we don't have double coupons or penny items. I read about both of these & get jealous of the rest of the country. I really do wonder why FL does not participate. Anyone know?

      • Holly

        The consensus seems to be that Publix doesn't have near as much competition in Florida, therefore, they don't feel as though they need to push as many promotions.

    • Art Teacha

      NOT FAIR! FL luvs penny items too!!

    • For Gainesville, Georgia (30501), does anyone know if it is in the Wednesday or Thursday paper?  Thanks!

      • Angel

        It is in the first section of the Times on Thursday.

      • Christieisaacs

        it is Thursday

    • well, I know they do have this at least in some Florida stores, as I bought some from there two weeks ago – it was their rice cakes and the instant lemonaide drink mix. The instant lemonaide turned out to be terrible, had turned brown, I complained at the website and the manager called and has a gift card waiting for me at the store. The rice cakes, btw, were just as good at the Quaker's.

    • Gnzeigler

      The penny item in Irmo, SC this morning was Publix apple juice.

    • Ann

      Keep your eyes open if you take the Anderson Independent and/or Greenville News.  There was a $5 off $30 coupon!!!  Yay.  Bought 6 bags of groceries including the $50 BP gas card and only paid $49.71 – I would say this is my all time best.

      • Boldingc1

        If I purchase $20 can I use 2 penny coupons or is it just one coupon per transaction?

        • elizabeth

          To my knowledge, it's just one per person, not even transaction.  I don't think you would be able to get a second even if you split up your purchases.

        • KMilton

          I think it depends on the store – our Publix let us get 3 pizzas last week when we purchased $30….

        • Arringtonb

          My publix lets me use 2 penny coupons, but they require me to do 2 separate transactions

      • Pat

        When does the $5 off $30 expire.  I just used mine that expired 8-10-11. It will be great if there are more coming.

    • Amber

      Did anyone in Greenville, SC find the penny item in their paper?  Not me.  :(  Although I found the $5 off $30.  There was also a random $1 off Borden Milk coupon.

      I want my penny item!  :'(

      • Paddiewhack

        Unfortunately, your penny item coupon was on the back of your Borden Milk coupon.  I know how unaware someone was to have put it there.  They took my half a coupon and let me keep the milk coupon side.  That was just dumb.

    • Christinesellstn

      My publix is starting to annoy me. For the longest time they'd put the penny items at the front, then they switched it to the end caps in the back of the store only, then last week you had to look for blue balloons NOW this week nothing…no sign, no balloons. I had to ask the guy at check out if they stopped doing it. But once I was checking out I had people behind me and didn't want to hold them up for coleslaw. Grr!! I can't imagine what next week will be like! ha!

    • Patty

      My Publix in Greenville is allowing you to get more than one for each $25 you spend so no need to do all that separate order stuff just to keep it one per customer visit.

    • Garyswife96

      Anyone know about TN? We've never been required to use the coupon. Two weeks ago we were told at a different Publix than I usually shop that the coupon is now required at ALL stores, but last week the assistant manager at my Publix no it's not required. yesterday the cashier told me it was : P.
      Do I have to buy a Tennesseean on Wed. or does it come in that paper you get for free every Wed????

    • Jessica

      Does anyone know which paper the penny item is in for Douglasville? (30135)

      • Inferno4915

        It's in the AJC.

        • Gottagetitnutrition

          What day of the week do you find the coupon and on what page?

      • afia

        What is the penny item?
