I have been trying to brainstorm how to make coupon insert differences less frustrating.  It is a tough dilemma.  Coupon inserts vary from newspaper to newspaper.  They don’t just vary in coupons offered but also in the value of the coupons.

If this is new to you, then realize that you need to be purchasing the largest newspaper that you have access to.  If you live outside of Atlanta and have been getting a little local paper, you want to switch to grabbing the AJC.  If you are in Charleston, you want to buy the paper out of Columbia etc.

To help us, I would like to get a volunteer or two from each major paper to take the list that I post every week and alter it for your area.  You would make the list on Sunday or Monday after you get your inserts.  I will load them and keep a running database of lists for us.  This will eventually turn into something bigger and better but we will start small.  Because I can’t keep up with all the tiny papers in the Southeast we will keep lists of the major papers.  I’m listing the ones I can think of and if you feel another should be added to the list email me.

This is an example to help you understand:

Columbia SC – The State 5/31

If you are up for being the list maker for your paper email me ( jenny @ southernsavers . com).  I will update this list as the job is taken.  If I don’t email back just know that someone has your paper covered!
