Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 8/24 or Thursday 8/25, is:

Publix Greenwise Bath Tissue, 4 pk.

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.

    • I thought the penny item was available on Sundays. (West GA area).

        No, it is always on wed., the paper is the only way to get the coupon.

      Is there any way to get the coupon other than from the paper?

        Just ask at your store’s Customer Service desk.  Some stores don’t require the coupon.  Some will hand you a photocopy at the CS desk.

      My store here in Charleston, SC had the penny item as Quaker Instant Oatmeal, not the toilet paper.

      Just got back from both of my Publix stores and received the toilet paper as the penny item at both.  I LOVE PUBLIX!!!!!  Picked up a few of the green advantage buys as well that will expire Friday.  Who does’t love $.75 ibuprofen and childrens fever reducer!!!!

        Good for u, so u found a way to cheat the system!

          Care to explain how that is “cheating the system”…  I followed all requirements, I spent the allocated amount at BOTH stores and then some.  I’m really not sure why you even post on this site, everything you have to say is negative.  I am just blessed enough to have two stores within a couple miles of each other.

            I would have to agree with you Bryant6. I’m trying to figure out how that is cheating the system? Bryant6 spent their time planning, their gas to go to both stores, acquired 2 penny item coupons, met their required $10 amount for the minimum, and picked up the GABs that expire soon. I would have done the same thing if I lived closed to 2 Publix stores. Up until last night, that was the first time I had seen the GAB that expires soon. I was just thankful as well that I could purchase sale items last night without the shelves being cleared before I got there after 8pm.

            As for Sofie2011…I feel for you if you are like me and get to the store and all the sale items are gone because some one has cleared the shelves. I just ask for rainchecks even though sometimes I feel bad for the customer service people because it feels like they are writing me a novel lol. I don’t think Bryant6 was doing that though.

        • This applies to smart shoppers only….you may be excluded from this category.

    • if i go tomorrow. will i be too late to get the penny item? west atlanta

        the penny coupon works on whatever day is the first day of the new ad. I think in all of metro Atlanta, that is Thursday.

    • This is wonderful! I’m new at this and I really need to save money fast. I didn’t know about the penny saver at Publix unitl recently and unfortunately missed out. I bought 8 bottles of A1 sauce for 8 dollars with coupons and 8 Fab items for super cheap, but missed out on the penny item. Next time!
