Publix Penny Item 8/30-8/31

on 8.30.2009 at 9:18am

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday & Monday, 8/30- 8/31, is:

Publix Greenwise Toilet Paper 4 pk

This is the top penny item and many stores will automatically substitute the item.  If your still has this in stock and you want the “real” item then just ask and they will honor it.

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 Publix Sunday Ad every week or somewhere in the Sunday Paper. Some stores do not require this coupon, but many have changed and do require it now, check with your store to find their policy.

**If your store has substituted something else but still has this item in stock you can ask to get the corporate decided item and most stores will let you**

    • wanted to thank the shopper I seen at Publix in Smyrna this morning for sharing this site with me! Very Nice!

      As of an hour ago the Publix in Ooltewah has Hidden Valley salad dressing as the penny item. She said it might change later though.

      My publix-chareston, folly rd. – is getting picky about the coupons. They accepted everything I had, but checked to make sure I had the $20 in meat to take the $5 FLip, waited until the end to take off the rite aid $5/25. It was awesome though- very nice overall, spent $23, saved $68!

    • Amy

      not sure where to put this, but Kmart is doubling coupons this week!!! Well there are in Gainesville, fl anyway! Yay

    • Sharlene

      My publix bundles the Sunday paper (St. Petersburg Times) in 2 and sells both for $1.25 B1G1. Just to let anyone in the area know this.

    • Karen

      The Publix in Ooltewah now has Ronzoni Pasta as the Mystery Item.

    • Thanks for the post! Jenny if you need me to post the Huntsville, AL coupons from today please e-mail me. I don’t mind at all if you need them but I probably won’t unless you need them so just let me know :)


    • Lyndsey

      If you live in the Nashville area, the Publix on hwy 70 in Bellevue had publix salad dressing as the penny item.

      I went to Publix yesterday and I only picked up 1 Toss for Cash.They had a lot on display I went back today and they was all gone.I won’t make that mistake again.I was being nice I talk to the manager and she said people will come in and get them all at one time.This is so wrong.

    • Stephanie B

      Diane- My Publix keeps all coupons behind the service desk for that reason…the only downfall to that is that sometimes you get a lazy employee who tells you they have no coupons when you know they have tons of them.

    • Jennifer

      I am new to couponing at Publix and have only been once. It was the week they had pizza for a penny so it was in front of the frozen food, but do you just have to walk all around the store to find the item or do they always put it in the front of the store? Thanks!

    • ET

      Jennifer (#11), it depends upon the store, at least in my experience. The Publix where I usually shop has them front and center near the registers but another in the area puts only a small sign on the shelf where they are typically located, if they even put the sign out at all.

    • My husband asked me where I got the “special” toilet paper last time this was the one cent item.

      I guess I won’t be getting it this time.

    • Paige

      Publix at McGinnis Crossing in Suwanee, GA has EVOO as the penny item.

    • Shannon

      I just want to say how much we ADORE our manager over in the irmo/chapin Publix. Alan is so amazing! He takes care of us couponers.

    • Melissa

      Jenny I am curious how you know what the penny item is suppose to be. Because I went to the Publix in Lexington today and they gave me applesauce as the penny item. I wish I would have had a chance to read this earlier and known that I could have said something, because they still had it in stock. So you just can ask them to give you the toilet paper if they still have it since it is what is really suppose to be the penny it? Thanks for your help Jenny!
