      • Jan

        Happy Anniversary! Hope you have a wonderful time with your bride.

    • Melissa H

      Nearly all of the SS noted in red as not in the insert for Orlando Sentinel were in all 4 of mine (1 home delivery, 3 store bought) … RedPlum is accurate though

    • I am so surprised at the coupon not included in TN @ the Chattanooga Times! I work there and will be printing the list and showing it to my manager. Compared to the Tennessean it's really sad.

      • pickleplug

        I am disappointed as well :( Hope they realize and are able to make changes, or not very worth my subscription, since I only get it for the coupons!

        I recently moved back to Chattanooga and have been very disappointed in the Times/Free Press coupons… I have a friend in Atlanta who buys the AJC and mails me the coupon inserts. When I buy the TFP and compare the inserts w/my AJC inserts, the AJC inserts are usually at least twice the size of the AJC ones. As in, the TFP “SmartSource” insert might be 12 pages of coupons — while the AJC one with the same first and last page has an additional 12-16 pages of coupons (and that one is the actual SmartSource insert that Jenny has previewed) .

        I've noticed there are several other Chattanoogans on this site who have had the same issue with the TFP… I'm not sure why they use different inserts but I only buy the Sunday paper for the coupons. I would always buy multiple copies if all the coupons were in there consistently. I'm sure there is a reason why the TFP doesn't carry all the coupons, but maybe your manager could check it out?

      to any non-vegetarians that have the lightlife coupons: i never keep my meat or milk coupons but would be glad to swap them with you for the lightlife or any other vegetarian products, such as morningstar, boca or gardein.

    • DonnaTN

      Hey Jenny just so you know, you have the title as 4/18 date. Not sure if that makes a difference in the coupons variations or you just put the wrong date! Just wanted to make sure, had to back track a minute! lol!

      • big john

        lol so i am confused these are the 4/18 insert variations.

        • DonnaTN

          I'm guessing so Big John. Most of these I got last Sunday so I'm wondering..hm…lol!

    • myrandasc

      How do I print the coupon for
      $1/2 off Hillshire Farms Smoked Sausage packages (exp 5/16)
      I can not find it on the RedPlum link. Thanks

    • KimmyM

      thank you for the macon paper ones :)

    • tho127

      I got the Chattanooga paper and i didn't get the greenworks coupon…………

      • DonnaTN

        It was in there. Not sure exactly where but I got myself a coupon and used it already.

    • JamieS

      I finally found the AJC in my town (Columbus GA)…purchased the paper and was sad to find the coupons were not in the paper even though the front page of the paper boasted over $400 in coupons. I stopped at a gas station and found the AJC there as well but this time I looked through the paper (before buying) and several others and there were no coupons in any of the papers…the next sunday same thing happened… am I missing something? Are the coupon inserts in the AJC only available to those in the Atlanta area???

    • Stephanie

      Can you tell me how to order missing coupons? I did not get any of the Huggies and I could use them! Thanks!
