Publix Penny Item ~ 1/3 & 1/4

The Mystery Penny Item at Publix for Sunday 1/3 & Monday 1/4 is:

WELL…there is no penny item!!! All those rumors that have been swirling about the penny item changing to a new date are in fact true…The NEW day for our area is Wednesday.

Here is what I have been able to verify with Mr. Jones at Publix…

1) The penny item will only be available on Wednesdays
2) You WILL have to have the coupon
3) The coupon will be in the Publix ad in the Wednesday Tennessean
4) It is believed that the coupon will also be in the Tuesday edition of the Spring Hill Advertiser News

My thoughts: I don’t like this change…but then again I don’t like most change…lol
This changes the day that I will be shopping, only allows for one day of shopping to get the penny item, as well as changes the way that I have to buy papers…because now we also need to buy the Wednesday edition as well Sunday. The plus to that is that the Wednesday edition often contains other coupons as well. The downside is obviously paying for another paper. But you may be able get a neighbor or family member to save the Publix ad for you πŸ™‚ If you live in Spring Hill most of you should be receiving the Advertiser News delivered on Tuesdays, so that should be a plus too!

Let me know your thoughts on this by leaving a comment below πŸ™‚

Happy Shopping!!

  1. Yeah, I'm not excited either by this change. It would be nice if it does in fact show up in the Advertiser news so that we don't have to actually BUY a paper. Guess we shall see!Just found your blog! Thanks for the info.

  2. I am not crazy about the penny item changing either….Also, got my paper today at Kroger and they are back to regular price…is there anywhere to get them for a dollar now on Sundays??

  3. It works better for me. I usually do my Publix shopping on Wednesday…because if I go any later, Publix is usually out of the best deals. (The other couponers get there first and then I can't get the best deals with the shelves being empty!!!)

  4. Ladies…thanks for your comments :-)Lea…papers are still $1.00 at the Dollar Tree…one of my readers said she still got her papers at Kroger yesterday for $1.00, not sure which one she went to though…I would keep checking Wags and CVS too since I would expect that they will bring back the specials sometime soon πŸ˜‰
