      Thanks Jenny! What a great penny item. Can’t wait to go pick some up!

      Atlanta Area-Could someone help me locate the $1 off coupon for the AJC? A really nice lady told me about this last week in Publix but she couldn’t remember the address to the link.

      • Chrissy


        It was originally at http://www.ajc.com/unplugsunday, but someone commented in a thread weeks ago that the AJC said the promotion was over :-( It sounds like the best deal to try and get these days is a “double-stack” paper, which consists of two papers bound together and sold for $2.50, as opposed to two individual papers purchased at the individual price each. I hope this helps!

      • Stephanie

        Unfortunately that coupon has not been available the past few weekends – but it was at http://www.ajc.com/unplugsunday maybe they will offer it again soon.

      • Andrea

        Hey Kris

        Jenny had a post about it awhile back. This should be the link. If this doesn’t work just type ajc into Jenny’s search bar at the top left. It should take you to this post.


      • Alyssa

        The $1 off AJC coupon used to be at http://media.ajc.com/unplugsunday/. They haven’t had it on their website for a few weeks now. Sorry! If someone else finds it in another place, post it here, because I am interested too.

        If you live near Hiram, there is always someone on Sundays in front of Home Depot who sells them for $1! I don’t know what time they are there, but I always go after church and buy 2 or 3!!!

        I don’t know if they sell them like this anywhere else.

      • Beware of trying to use the $1 off coupon to buy papers Monday (double-pack) Even if you print it Monday morning it will show that it expires Sunday (the day before you printed it) so the store won’t except it. I don’t shop on Sundays so this was irritating.

    • Rachel

      I shop in Middle TN & our penny item at the Smyrna store this week was Publix Hotdogs. I would have preferred the water, but a penny item is a penny item.

    • Chrissy

      If I get the penny item and drop it off at the Cobb Energy Center for the metro Atlanta flood victims, do you think the Red Cross will accept it at that location? Or should I drop it off elsewhere first? I don’t need the water but I’m sure those people in the CEC could.

    • Yep, penny item here in Nashville is Publix Jumbo Beef Franks. Too bad I didnt see this before I went, I would have asked for the water.

    • Sarah

      Anyone know if you can do the Palmolive “Try Me Free” again with the new rebate form in today’s paper? I did the one last month, and the dates on this one are different.

      • Jamie

        I emailed their customer service and was told that:

        “Since this is a newly dated promotion form you are eligible to participate in this current promotion.”

      The item at the Publix on WH in Taylors, SC was Mott’s apple juice at 3 pm today. They said they ran out of the water.

    • Taylor

      Trenholm Plaza Publix in Columbia had decaf coffee for the mystery item.

    • The Publix in Huntsville, Alabama had wishbone salad dressing for the penny item.

    • Beth

      Penny item at Publix in Spring Hill TN was the water.

      • Katie

        I guess they ran out by 4 in the afternoon…because I got a big bottle of Miracle Whip….

    • Charis

      The Penny item at the Seven Hills Station store in Dallas, GA was a gallon of water.

    • J

      Rosewood in Columbia had vanilla wafers by 6pm Sunday. They ran out of water.

    • AngelaDH

      This evening Ooltewah had the Hunts Pudding Packs…I guess it has been since around 3pm or so… Bummer but at least it is something we’ll eat.

    • Heidi

      Does anyone know if Publix will accept multiple Qs for the penny item? or can I only get 1 per transaction?

    • 1 per transaction for the penny item..
      So if needed split your orders… Its supposed to be one per customer. So sometimes, I just bring my husband and have him do the 2nd order.

    • mel

      love it

    • Ann

      Does anyone know where the Penny Item is located in the Valdosta Daily Times?

      • Hi Ann,

        Not sure if you got a response or not–Publix in Valdosta does not participate in the penny item. :-( Wish they did!!

    • Bobbie

      Just got back from Publix and had a great shopping trip. Got two of the penny water items since my boyfriend went with me. Used $23. competitor plus other coupons for a total after coupons of $27.08 oop. Savings of $105.87. Love this site and all Jenny does. Really don’t see how she does it with 3 little ones.

    • Kim

      I live in Canton, Georgia and have located the penny item coupon in all Publix sale adds in the AJC at least since June. It is also in the sale flyer that is in the front of the store when you walk in. This week they offered the item and I didn’t have to use the coupon.

    • Sarah

      Penny Item in Spring Hill, TN is Kraft squeezeable Mayo or Miracle Whip! There is a large display in the front of the store with a “penny item” sign on it!

    • Meredith

      No water in Easley, SC tonight. Substitute was a 24oz bottle of Gatorade. Poor sub if you ask me!

    • April

      I just left Publix and I am sooo excited. I spent $17.35 and saved $72.02 This was my first trip shopping with coupons there and can’t tell you how exciting this is!!!! Thanks so much Jenny
