    • lolly

      I get the Virginia Gazette on Sat which has the upcoming weeks inserts.If they are great I buy another Gazette for 75 cents. Nice because Williamsburg has 3 CVS stores that will let you shop the previous weeks specials as well as the up coming weeks specials all day Sat.

    • Crclark75

      so a few weeks back I was missing 2 of the 3 inserts scheduled to come that sunday, in BOTH my papers, but I looked and based on your lists I should have gotten them. In this situation in the future, is there ANYTHING that can be done about that???

      • Maleroy79

        I always been told to call the newspaper and they would replace them. But I always check the papers before leaving the store.

        • $avin'some$

          in my area i have to call before like 9:AM. one time they brought me another, one time they said they would and didn't.

      • Linda

        Yes get your paper at Publix check it in your car and if your missing something return it.

      • RebeccaFer

        I make a point of checking each and every paper I buy at RA (20% with my Wellness discount) right when I walk in so they can see I'm looking for all the inserts. If it's a new cashier who doesn't know me and my coupon habits, I tell them I'm checking for inserts. I check how many inserts I'm supposed to have and if they don't have them all, I inform the cashier and only buy the ones that do.

    • Snjeddy

      Crclark, I was wondering the same thing!! I have been really disappointed in the AJC several times a month for about three months! This past week there were no SS or P&G, only RP. And I usally get the double pack and the Gas station where I get them posted a large sign that says they do not garentee coupons to be in there and if you open the double pack you have to buy it!!! UGH!!!

      • Stacey0216

        Call the newspaper company and report it. People steal them all of the time ( some are employees ) and they normally mail you replacements.

      • Livnlol

        I have called several times when I have bought a paper and had inserts missing. Each time I have spoke with people who barely speak any english and I always leave a voicemail on top of the message I leave with the live person. I have called @ least 4 times for 2 seperate papers missing coupons. I have received zero calls back. Now I check the papers before I buy them!

      • Deduchaine

        When I signed up to get the newspaper delivered rather than purchasing it every Sunday (because I ran into the same problem) they let me know that there would be coupons guaranteed in the home delivered ones and then any extra is what they dispense to the stands at the grocery stores and gas stations.

      • Applejuicecook

        Snjeddy – I live in Atlanta too & get the paper delivered at home Thurs thru Sunday. It's about $140 a year (and if you balk at that sometimes they'll cut you a better deal!) but I ALWAYS have every insert, and sometimes I get two. And oddly enough on some Thursdays I'll get an SS also. If you're buying it every Sunday it may be worth the money to have it home delivered if it's available in your area.

      • Diane

        I got all 3 of them in my AJC. Then, I went to get my 'free' ones at wags – with last week's RRs. I stood there and looked though each one; loads of them had no ss! I kept looking until I found 4 with all 3 inserts. success!

    • I dont know why I look at this my paper only has about 4 from RP and maybe 8-10 from SS. My paper Q's are always so bad. Does anyone else get the worst coupons?

      • Jude1018

        where are you Heather

        • Dcca61

          Don't know where she is but I'm in Chattanooga and have the same issue. I usually end up ordering the coupons I need, or having my mom send them to me from Huntsville.

        • Im in Montgomery AL

          • Karen

            I live in Millbrook. I get the Advertiser delivered but it doesn't always have all the copons listed by Jenny. I buy the B'ham News at Walmart or a newstand also, but I usually only get one coupon insert no matter where I buy it. I think they don't put them all in when they deliver away from B'ham. When I get some good ones in the B'ham paper they are worth aobut $.50 more per item.

            Karen

            • Starlyte

              So the Advertiser and the B'ham paper are both inconsistent? I am new to the area and trying to figure out which paper to buy (I would like to only have to get one each week). I have been alternating which ones I buy, and so far, the Georgia paper has seemed to have the best coupons. (The only one left at Publix in the evening).

            • I was going to buy a B'ham paper but was told there are no coupons in their paper. I started buying coupons off the net. I just buy the whole insert instead of trying to pick which ones i want.

      • michelle

        yes, I am in Greenville, SC and there are never any good coupons in the inserts that are on the list. Last week I did not get a P & G. I ordered some coupons this week, because I wanted the schick coupons from a couple of weeks ago and we never get those when they are supposed to be in there. I just hate having to pay the s & H.

        • Vgwagoner

          I am in Greenville and get home delivery and we got the P&G insert. I think ours are pretty in line with what Jenny sends out.

        • mommalana

          I agree with you about the Greenville paper and the Spartanburg paper is no better. I got my papers at Walgreens and did get the P&G inserts.

      • Davahodges

        The Chattanooga, TN newspaper isn't very good either. The Atlanta Journal is A LOT better, but I have yet to venture out to see where I can get one the closest. It had every coupon. It makes you feel ripped off.

      • ChrissyPunkin

        I'm in Montgomery, too, Heather. I'm going to try a clipping service. I also like All You.

        Do you have any favorite stores in town; what are the locations? I've been shopping at the Publix on Atl Hwy near Perry Hill and I've always had a good experience. They seemed really annoyed with my coupons at the one on Zelda Road. Also, have you found a CVS that actually has the ad items in stock on a regular basis?

        • Mt925

          The Publix on Vaughn Road is great (very patient) and so is the CVS on Vaughn and Bell. They usually have what I need when no one else does and one of the manager's there is always patient ;-)

          • ChrissyPunkin

            Thanks for the tips! What competitor coupons does that Publix take? Will any in town take Target ones? I know mine used to and then changed their policy.

            • I was wondering that also. I wish our Publix took Target coupons

        • That is the one i shop at also. But here lately I have been going to the Publix on Zelda Rd they are so nice and coupon friendly. I have had a few not so great moments at the one on ATL hwy by Perry Hill. I even had to get the manager to come approve some coupons. I think its sad when the shopper knows more about coupons than the ones that work there. My other problem with the ATL hwy Publix is the manager is not friendly. I loved the other one we had. That man is was so friendly. I dont think i have even seen the woman manager smile yet.

          • ChrissyPunkin

            I tried to use some “do not double” coupons at Zelda and they wouldn't double them, but mine always does. I also got a “oh, these ladies come in with their coupons, blah, blah, blah” from the cashier behind me. I guess it all depends on the cashier you get. :-)

            • there is one good cashier at the one on ATL that i do like buti have noticed she is always in there at night. I go during the day. I heard one of the cashier on Zelda say one day that they didnt double coupons that said do not double. I work on Zelda so its easy for me to just go there at lunch.

      • Amhand

        I get a awful paper as well. I usually travel 15 minutes to get the better paper. This week I can skip the drive.

      • Floridajewels1959

        Yes Tallahassee FL

        • I second, Tallahassee has bad coupons. I am debating if its worth purchasing 2 paper because I'm not sure I get $3 worth of coupons out of it!

    • Judy

      Does anyone know where to get a Pro x coupon from Olay?

      • judy

        I have one coming in the mail but would like a printable one. Anyone have an idea?

        • Sean

          Procter and Gamble doesn't issue printable coupons. I have two Pro X coupons that I got from another product for $5 off. You can email me at ziggy34434 at yahoo dot com and I'll work something out with you if you want them.

      • Charo808

        On the very back of the PG 10/10 there is a $1Q and it also says receive a $20 rebate when you buy $50 of Olay Professional Pro-X Moisturrizers or Facial Cleansers. Hope that helps.

      • Ready2Save

        They have it on their website. 5$ off. Only cath is….they mail it to you :(

    • Emerysmom

      Cool! Thanx…I don't have to buy 2 papers this week, because I don't want or need any of that:)

      • Cinderelligirl

        for sure, 1 is enough this week! yay

    • Lucy2778

      For, I LOVE the Nivea Men's Body wash coupon $3/1. It's on sale in WalMart for $3, so makes it free! Although I hate Walmart, I can't miss this deal :)

      • We actually go this coupon in the Tallahassee Democrat which is surprising!

    • Colbysmom

      Once again my AJC didn't have a smart source- this may be my last week buying the paper.

    • June Barnes56

      I clicked on one of the comments that was directing us to a Fla. place to purchase coupon inserts and a virus popped up! DO NOT CLICK ON IT!

      Not sure now–they had stated they purchased inserts and had a link

    • gardengirl

      The q's I really need are for pet food….does anyone know if the AJC or B'ham paper have them? I have to drive 2 hours to get both or just 1 hour to get one of them. I'd appreciate any info! Thanks!

      • Pld7304

        If you have to drive that far for your papers, why don’t you consider getting your coupons from a clipping service. I use couponsandthingsbydede.com. They are safe and fast. It would probably be alot cheaper and save you alot of time if you only need specific coupons or you can get whole inserts from them too.

    • Maggamooo

      Im in Savannaha. I got 2 papers and each one only had a smart source….is anyone else missing their red plumb?

      • Sarah R

        I'm in Pensacola and only had smart source.

      • itismedia

        I'm in Savannah and I have both inserts. I do the variations for our area so I will try to come back and let you know how close the list is. I would call SMN.

      • itismedia

        Update, almost all of the coupons listed were in the RP this week (believe it or not. It seems ours never matches up). The biggest coupons I found missing from our area is the candy coupons for 1.00/2 that were suppose to be in the RP. Most everything else matched and we even had a couple of extra ones. HTH – Definately call SMN!

    • Melissa

      I only cut out 3 coupons from the whole paper! Not a good week for me but I guess my binder can use the break.

    • Couponingchissy

      I am in Knoxville and I only got a smart source ad. Anyone else missing the redplum ad?

      • AmandaG

        I'm also in Knoxville. I got both but missing about half of the listed coupons above. I get two subscriptions and they both are missing the same.

        • Stephanie

          I'm in Knoxville — I only got the SS — no RP. :( Two papers at the same location out of the same stack. Sometimes I'll be missing one of them, but never have I gotten the paper and be missing the same set from each. Totally Bummed

      • Bessie

        Do you subscribe to the News Sentinel? I do and last Sunday my paper did not have the P&G insert. I sent them an email about it & it was delivered on Tuesday!

        I got both inserts today. Compared to the above list of potential coupons, our inserts are horrible this week!

    • smylneyes

      I'm in Ft. Lauderdale and I'm really bummed! My paper only had the Red Plum insert and it didn't contain all of the Q's listed. I know that there are variations but all of the good Q's were missing. Waaahhhh!

    • MommyOf3

      No RP in the St.Pete Times.o much for getting free Nivea Body Wash

    • courtney

      No RP in either of my AJC's anyone else????

      • gardengirl

        I purchased 2 AJC's in Columbus, I had both inserts in both papers. You might want to call AJC and ask for your RP. Good luck.

        • kjmiller

          Where do you get AJCs in Columbus? I've been looking! Thanks!

    • rookie couponer

      I bought 2 papers and has all coupons in one paper and nothing in the other

    • The Tallahassee Democrat had both the RP and SS but many were missing.
      We actually had several extra in the SS but nothing too fantastic.

    • Katkoupon

      I need some help. I want to share which inserts/coupons came in my local paper. Can anyone tell me an easy way to do this without having to type up all the coupons? Thanks!

      • Miriamel78

        I copy/paste the list of what is *supposed* to be in the insert to a Word doc, then highlight in red the ones I don't have, and highlight in blue the ones I do. Then e-mail the file.

        • Katkoupon

          Thanks! I'm sure it's probably right in my face…but I can't find an e-mail to send the doc. Can you tell me what it is?

    • Crystal Henderson

      I have a random question – I also get a RedPlum in the mail sometimes and when I compare it to the Sunday RedPlum inserts it appears to be different. Do you track those on this site as well as the Sunday ones? Just wondering if I need to clip those in case they aren't tracked as a Sunday insert.
