The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 8/11 or Thursday 8/12, is:

Publix Half Gallon Deli Tea

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!

      Does anyone know if the Publix green deli tea is included or just the plain deli tea? Thanks!

      • SaraO

        I only spotted the plain tea (sweet or unsweet) at the Publix on Rosewood in Columbia SC. They keep the penny items in a bin or cooler near the registers so the cashiers can grab the item quickly. The cashier I had today also required the actual newspaper coupon.

        • Randi

          all varieties were a penny at my store (I think). they don't require a coupon at my store either. yeah! Its in Marietta on Delk Rd.

        Our publix in Goose Creek, SC had the green tea available. I grabbed a raspberry tea!

          I used to live in base housing in the early 90's there. I don't think Publix was there then.

      • Paul

        They had more than 1 selection of tea in the deli. I'm pretty sure green deli tea was among them. They also had lemonade, which I opted to get.

      Ok, so for weeks now I have been trying to hunt down this mysterious penny coupon. I live in a suburb of Nashville, TN and get a local paper on Wednesdays with the publix add in it but I never see a penny “coupon”. Do I have to get the Tennessean to get the actual coupon?

      • Garnet

        Call your Publix. They'll tell you where it is.

      • Coupons79

        i'm in Nashville,TN too…unfortunately, it's not in the Davidson AM paper they deliver to us..you have to buy the Wednesday Tennessean…

      • Chloe

        I think it has to be the Tennessean. Today it's on page 3A.

      • Redroses2

        It usually in the Sunday Publix ad

    • anonymous

      I can't find the penny coupon in The State newspaper today (SC). Can anyone tell me where they found it?

    • Cnbrat3

      I just moved to Atlanta from FL and am excited about being able to take advantage of the penny coupon. Can anyone please tell me which paper I can find it in – I live in Buckhead? Thanks!!

      • Mcoupons

        It's in the living section of the AJC separate from the publix ad. Ask your store to see if they require you to have the actual coupon.

      • Atlantachic

        You live in Buckhead and you want to know where the penny item is? Now. That's just funny! I couldn't resist myself.
