Publix Penny Item

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 8/3 or Thursday 8/4, is:

Publix Pizza

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.

      General Mills is giving away free samples of Honey Nut Cheerios and a .75 coupon.  Just go to gmsampling.young-america.com and fill out your name and address and they are supposed to mail directly to your house.  Who doen’st enjoy freebies?

    • Amandajw

      Yay!  I've been wanting to try their pizza.  What an awesome penny item!

    • Christy

      Has anyone else experienced the Publix managers substituting other items EVERY week? Last week, I was excited about the water. They substituted a boxed potato side. I was grateful to get it and donate it. Last week they substituted bran cereal. Annoying!

      • jen

        Last week the penny item at my publix was vanilla waifers. So I guess my store does that to?

      • Airvan83

        i really wanted the water too last week but my publix had ketchup as the penny item. i was excited to get brand name ketchup for only a penny but would have preferred water.

      • Danyeln

        It happens sometimes at every store I guess.  Couple weeks back it was supposed to be cereal and we got glass cleaner instead.

        Christy, you can always get the corporate penny item as long as it is stock.  I have done that numerous times.  It's in their computer when it rings up.  I always make sure that I put it on last so I can make sure that's what they're taking off when they scan the penny item.

      • MFamMom

        Stores only stock so much of the penny item so when it runs out they substitute something else they have stock of…many weeks if I don't get there till evening time its Nilla Wafers and I like them better than the brand name ones…keep trying…shop early if you can.

      • Rebecca

        I asked a couple of weeks ago for a rain check for the penny item (it was hot dogs, and they were substituting something useless to me).  The manager was very accommodating.  He was going to do it for me, and then the meat manager managed to find one more package for me.

    • Thetaylortidbit

      my Sunday paper does not have the penny coupon, where do I find the sales paper?

      • Niki

        It is in my local Wednesday paper, the day our new sales start. 

    • MaryTN

      I bet it will run out very early. 

    • GrammarDiva

      Looks like I'd better gather my Skippy Qs and get over there asap!

    • Brandy

      So I got my Wednesday paper and no coupon… I then checked my expired ad and yes our publix starts the new add today…. what am I doing wrong?

      • Wcrssnchr

        same here no coupon and i know it starts today

      • Danyeln

        The coupon is printed inside the newspaper NOT in the weekly ad.  It usually says “See what $.01 will get you”.

    • Amanda

      My store even had choices of different toppings! This was a great penny item :)

    • Mwilliams5690

      my penny coupon is hidden in the regular paper on Wednesday and NOT in the publix ad…I live in Charleston, SC

    • Jrallgo

      Awesome penny deal! My favorite!

    • Sofia

      I have a $5 off $30 at Publix that expires on 8/10. I'm willing to trade it for a couple of coupons if anybody wants it. I can mail it out in Today's mail.

      • Trisha

        I would love to trade!  What coupons would you like to trade for?

        • Sofia

          Nivea or Dove products, Horizon milk, Tropicana, Midol, Brita, Wholefruit Fruit bars, and any frozen chicken products. Ice cream is always good too =) Any combo would be great. What's your email?

          • Leeannsc01

      • Nina B

        which coupons are you looking for?

        • Sofia

          See below :)

    • Mower5

      At my publix, you go to customer service and ask for the coupon (it is a small slip of initialed paper). But they will only give one to you each day.

    • Alsobrook

      Help!  I used to go back to the link Jenny posted that let you type in what you needed and find the lowest price in stores that week.  I can't find it anymore.  Can somebody please send that link to me or tell me where to look?  Thanks!

      • ShelleySchu

        it is on her site at the top right bright blue button for “BEST DEALS THIS WEEK”.  (If it was a snake it would have bit ya on the mouth!) I'm on the lookout for TP. My stockpile runneth low….

    • natalie

      so if your day to get the penny item is thursday (1st day of the ad, correct?) does that mean the coupon is in thursday's paper?

    • Couponeagle11

      the first awesome penny item in weeks and i had to be out of town for school and missed it free food would have been fantastic with school going on were short on cash as are most of us

    • Linda

      I had my 1st experience with a over careful cashier I dont know if she was new or what but she must have double checked all of my items looked 2 times even pulling things out of the bags she had already scanned. All my exp. dates were right. I had 10 items plus my penny pizza that the nice man standing over her shoulder went to get for me. I had know idea how upsetting this was, for me and the people in line behind me. Did good any way. (2) Cover Girl eye shadow @ 2.99 had 3.50 in coupons. Any J&J product .50 doubled on some .79 band-aids (1) J&J kid item .50 doubled used on a bath buddy sudzing bar @1.09 paid .09, 1 Wishbone dressing 1.00 off paid .49. Battery coupons One Publix coupon and one from paper 4pk AA $3.89 paid $1.39, AJ pancakes 1.00 printed off Jenny site paid .35 (1)Wet jet spray had a 2.50 off from inside a kit I purchased 3 mts ago paid1.50  2indiviual packages of Scotch Brite .75/2  $1.29 each I spent little over 10 bucks. So I was happy with my tiny trip..Linda K Fairview, Tn

      At my store you had the choice between supreme, pepperoni and cheese. I got the cheese, and can't wait to try it! I never buy frozen pizza because it is so expensive. Yummy treat!
