The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Wednesday 9/29 or Thursday 9/30, is:

Publix Sandwich Bread

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!

      The Publix in Fairhope,AL does not do the Penny Item.

    • MelRae

      It's been months since I have gotten the penny item. I can't remember….do they give you the option of wheat bread…or is it just white? I don't normally buy white bread, but for a penny, I will find something to do with it! If nothing else, we can take it to a pond and feed ducks!

    • Sara

      I went to Publix this morning and at mine you could only get the white bread.

      Does anyone know if the Publix in McAlister Square in Greenville require that you have the coupon for the Penny Item?

      • Erin

        Yes. They used to be lenient, but do require it now.

    • sandraj

      where is the coupon in the greenville news. I looked all over and just can't find it.


      • Sandy565


        The coupon was in section 9A of the Greenville News. I did find out that the McAlister square Publix requires the coupon.

    • Blanecreations

      i went to the bread aisle at my publix (albany, ga) and ALL the publix bread was gone except “light wheat” and “white” so i grabbed the light wheat and no discount.. but i also didn't have the coupon so they must require it. Where do you find the coupon?? in the actual local newspaper?

      • littlemama

        Next time just ask for it! Normally my cashiers take it off right away, but if they forget I remind them :) I also put it last on the belt so I don't forget!

      • Sandy565

        The discount only applied to the “white” bread

    • saving$

      our store requires the coupon and I find it in Wed. paper in the first section for about 2 to 3 pages in. YUMMY I will make bread pudding out of mine.

    • Leah

      I have a question…I am new to SC and have never shopped at Publix before. I received a 5/20 coupon today, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if that is before coupons or after? The coupon doesn't say. TIA!

      • Amylea

        use it first before other coupons. Just so the total is $20 when you use the coupon, then use your other coupons. Publix is really coupon friendly!

        • Jackie

          Not the ones where I live, they scrutinize every coupon and read every detail on the coupon. If the coupon states 1 per person, they will not let you use 2. It's insane. It took me 20 minutes to check out in a lane that I was the only person there and they looked over my coupons 3 times for purchasing only 20 items. This Publix store sucks. I realize that that they want to make sure the coupons aren't expired or state that they can't be doubled, but come on people. Also they won't accept the Target coupons as competition.

          • Nikmoose

            I agree! I've had a awful time with our Publix too, just in the past couple months something changed and they're awful!

          • Nikmoose

            Which Publix do you shop at?

      • saving$1

        In the past it is your total bill prior to coupons. I always put that coupon on top.

    • krispel

      I asked my local publix in Wesley Chapel FL today about the penny item and they had no idea what I was talkin about….this must be excluding FL or only to specific stores

      I went last night and used the Target coupon for .50 off bread (their brand). They took it, paying me .49 to get the .01 Mystery coupon.
