Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 8/17 or Thursday 8/18, is:

Publix Paper Towels

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.

      Is this a pack of paper towels?

      • Anonymous

        Usually the item is a $2.50 item…so I would think this would be a 2 pack…but I am not sure.

    • Jkmr1972

      Does anyone know if they do the penny item in Valdosta, GA.

      • Jill D

        I don’t know why they wouldn’t… they do in the metro Atlanta area

      • They don’t in Albany because we’re considered in the FL area. I think Valdosta is the same. The Atlanta area is different than the more southern parts of GA.

    • tammi

      I had the same question.  I would assume this is one roll, but could it be more?

      • Sam

        Last time I got the towels as a penny item it was a 3 pack!!

        • Mrs.Gosse

          That was most likely the Greenwise paper towels.

    • Guest

      Just went to the Lexington,SC store and the penny item is a box of Scotties tissues, not Publix paper towels :)

    • Cwalkden

      Is anyone else having trouble getting the “next” button to work on Jenny’s “latest articles”?  

      • Kathyneff

        won’t work for me either

      • Thanks for the heads up! It should be working again now.

    • Ksparr

      The paper towels is a single big roll

      • BOB

        This is muuuch better than cole slaw..

        • kp

          LOL….I agree becuase I love almost free paper towels, but my husband said he loved the cole slaw and I was happy it was only a penny!!

      • Sajant

        really?..dang.. idk if it’s worth it. :/

    • Bobbie D

      We don’t get them here. We live in S.AL. and we are considered FL district. We loose out on alot like the doulbe coupons here at publix. Be change from when we lived in Tuscaloosa, AL.

    • I wish we had a penny Item in MIAMI! :(

    • Amanda

      Where is the coupon for the penny item????I’m in Metro Atl

      • Lisabshops

        Its typically in the Living Section on the second page in the AJC in Thursday’s paper.

    • Ketta

      In the downtown Greenville store the penny item is Sweet Baby Rays Barbecue Sauce.

      • kp

        So glad I skipped it then. I was feeling guilty for missing the paper towels! Thank you :)

      I did my Publix run tonight, however I forgot one of my M coupons and the cashier just missed one of the S ones. Will Publix refund this money to me? Anyone know? I’m new to the whole couponing thing and I still get kinda flustered at the register.

      • Anonymous

        Publix Customer Service is usually pretty good.  Call them tonight (if you can) and tell them which cashier/register you had.  They can maybe pull the S coupon that the cashier missed out of the drawer.  For the Manuf. coupon, take in your receipt with the coupon you forgot and usually they will take care of it at the customer service desk next time you are there.

      We got a 50 ct package of lunch bags.  No kids who take lunches left at home but I can decorate these and use them for goody/gift bags.  Always thankful for that item no matter what it is.  Almost free is GREAT!

    • Ammagruder

      I am an employee at a grocery retailer and I hate to bust your bubble but you are giving our customers some incorrect information.  Not all grocery retailers of the same name offer the same deals, it depends on the district.  You have no idea how many customers are upset with us because you are giving incorrect information.  Please try and work on that.

      • Denice

        I believe this site instructs users to check their store’s sales against the listed coupon matchups before heading out.  I have 5 Publix stores within a 30 minute radius from my house and always check their ads to the southernsavers site matchups.  If customers at your location are upset then I would say it’s on them… they’re not doing their homework.

        Jenny ALWAYS states that there are differences amongst regions, states, and stores. She doesn’t need to work on it. The people who have been “upset” with you are the ones who need to work on reading all of the details and knowing that it’s not the same for everyone.

      • Learn22read

        Ammagruder, This is a free site..Jenny is only making suggestions based on what she knows.  She has and is not guaranteeing  anything at any retail stores.  It is only common sense that the prices will vary by region.  The prices even vary within miles of each other.  There are more than 4 Publixes in1-4 miles  from my house and they all had different prices for the soft scrub last week… If you don’t need, use or understand this website, there are several others you may choose from.

      The Publix in Savannah (twelve oaks) and Publix in Pooler (pooler parkway) no longer offer Penny items.  In case anyone wanted to know.

    • guest

      what part of the paper is the penny item coupon located??? i can’t find it anywhere!!! :(

      • KMilton

        Not sure where you are but it was on the second page of the Living section in AJC…it’s almost always in the same spot :)

    • CG

      I love my store! They don’t make you have the coupon, they just take the price right off!! So much fun.
