The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 9/15 or Thursday 9/16, is:

Publix Coffee

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 some 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!

    • Kerenjs

      Where is the coupon for it in the State…anybody know?

    • Mary

      I went today and they offered publix oatmeal – not coffee. :-)

      • flower_mom

        Lucky you…We don't drink coffee!

    • CouponClary

      There is a coupon for $2 off store brand coffee wyb 2 boxes of NutriGrain bars in the Kelloggs Fuel for School booklet…can these be combined for free coffee & cheaper NutriGrain bars?

    • Lindsey

      Usually I get the penny item w/o having the coupon in the downtown Columbia location – they are cracking down now and wouldn't give it to me. FYI… Anyone know if the Lexington location gives it to you w/o the coupon?

      • Shelly

        The Lexington Publix never makes you use the coupon. At least that's what they told me last week – my first time in. And,they gave me the penny item and I of course didn't have the coupon so …

      • Kerenjs

        I went to the Lexington one tonight and they didn't ask to see the coupon..fyi.

      • steve

        the lexington publix is starting to make you have the coupon now, they have signs up at the registers

    • Jeannie

      I have bought local paper on wednesday, thursday and get atlanta journal double on sundays. There's a publix sale paper but no penny coupon. Any advice?

      • Read2deb

        Sometimes that coupon seems hidden! If you call the paper they can tell you where it is.

      • ShelleySchu

        i always get the marietta daily journal on thursday and it is usually on page 2 or on pg 2 of the lifestyle section

      • ShelleySchu

        ps depends on which part of Atlanta area that you like in. some are on wednesday — i know suwanee/alpharetta is wednesday

      • Lin

        Today is 9/16. I live in Acworth and it is on page D2 of the Atlanta Constitution. It is never in the Publix ad anymore.

        • Jeannie

          Thx. I'll try again this week.

    • Javajunkies2002

      So, it's not in the Publix sales paper.. it's in the actual Newspaper??

      • Read2deb

        Yes, look in Wed. or Thursday's paper.

    • jrun

      in Nashville, TN our penny item is publix frozen pizza! They handed me one at checkout and said that it is listed w/a coupon in the Wed. paper, but you don't need the coupon. love publix more every time i go!

    • Brittshields09

      My publix penny item was a 24 pack of deer park bottled water!

    • cdb

      I live in nashville area and I got Kraft barbque sauce. Must have been an unorganized penny week

    • Kazmom

      Wish FL had a penny item! :(

    • Jennifer

      My Publix manager (Wilmington Island – Savannah) said they don't get the info but will honor the deal! Havent' tried it yet but here's hoping!
