Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 6/5.

Click on the paper near you to see what coupons were actually in the inserts around the Southeast. Check out the differences to really get an idea of what paper is the best to buy.

A few ways to use these lists:

  1. If you see that you did not get a coupon that was released, you can go to online coupon sites and order it.
  2. Print the list for your area and keep it with your inserts to quickly know if you have that coupon.
  3. Use it as a way to decide what paper is the best paper in your area to buy.

A legend for the list:

Black = You got this coupon!
Red = Not in this insert

Blue = A Change in value or a new coupon not in the preview.

      What about Arkansas?

    • Bndflip83

      Press Register blows :(

    • Kenzbug

      The Macon Telegraph inserts this past week were just hilarious.  I don't know why they even bothered putting Red Plum in there.  Only 5 coupons and Smart Source wasn't much better.  I know they vary from week to week, but jeesh, folks in Macon need coupons too!  I sure hope next week is better.

    • Rachel

      Does anyone have ideas on where I can get extras or leftovers of coupon inserts? The ones that come with our paper are always very scant…I haven't been able to find a newspaper that will let me have the extras.

      • Jenbissness

        Try your recycling centers, I always find numerous inserts there.

    • Kenzbug

      Try the recycle bin, aka / dumpster diving. LOL.  Never done it personally but I take all my papers there and the dumpster is just full of papers (not garbage or anything).  Worth a try…

      • Guest

        Isn't that illegal in SC?  Or just a hoax.?

    • 1blessedmom

      I bought 2 Greenville News (SC) neither had RP.  Also, was unable to find the RP in Spartanburg paper – looked through last 3 and each only had 1 insert.

      • JennS

        My Greenville News did have the RP, but was missing the P&G.  This is the first time I'm reading this list, so maybe I'm reading it wrong, but my SS from both the GNews & Anderson Independent (same insert) contained all the coupons listed as not in this insert.

      • KLH1976

        No RP in my Greenville papers either. I got the SS and P&G, though. So strange…

    • Thriftycouponmom

      I had all 3. SS, RP, and P&G in the G'ville news. I just thought they did a poor job of stuffing the papers with all the inserts if I was missing something.

    • Sporksoma

      MS  Sun Herald had only a SS insert this week AGAIN.    That is 2 months in a row without a p&g.  The SS had almost no Qs in it, it wasn't even worth picking up.

      • Prettykiti09

        Hey, I live in Saucier, Ms and I get the Sun Herald, I had a SS, RP, and PG in all of my newspapers I got.  And I got  SS, RP, PG, and pepsico in the first sunday of last month.

    • Oes_716

      I was wondering why the BAN solid deordorant was missing in the Birmingham News since it was a great deal for the ECB's at CVS.  Now, I know…

      Thanks, Jenny. 

    • Mel_Jolley

      Has anyone used the “free single can” of Seattle's Best? I have several, I was assuming that someone has had issues with it since
      It's completely free!?!?

      • Dharvn

        i found them at rite-aid for $1.49 each, they are even less with my wellness card.

    • Erinmorales724

      did not get RP in knoxvillle news sentinal :(

      • Brendac

        One of the knoxville papers I got had one and one didn't (and I only got two).  I was going to get a Tennessean but there's weren't any and there was no P&G in the knoxville ones I got from two different stores.

        • Loyal2disney

          I bought 2 of the Knoxville papers (actually my husband picked them up for me).  I usually always check them before I buy them.  Both of them had the RP insert but no SS or P&G!  So frustrated!  I was mainly wanting the P&G anyway!  Do you all know if there is a way to get the inserts that weren't in there?

      • You weren't missing much. :-/

    • Kdkards

      Is there any way to get the flyers that were not in my paper?

    • Jessica

      Anyone know of a coupon insert service that provides inserts from the Atlanta Journal?  I live in GA but the AJC is not available in my area.  I'm looking for whole inserts, not clipped coupons.

      • Steph Patterson

        Jessica, I sell Atlanta Journal inserts and I have plenty available. Send me an email pattcoupons at gmail dot com.

        • Nancy Davis

          I would like more information about this. Do you sell whole inserts? How much.

          • Steph Patterson

            Nancy, I do sell whole inserts. Most of them are $.80 each + postage. Send me an email, pattcoupons at gmail dot com.

    • Jclangpdl

      I live in Ponce de Leon, Fl, only SS in the Daily News out of Ft. Walton. P&G's website said their insert would be in there for my zip. OOPS!!! again. I don't know what happened to RP.

    • Tfields1618

      Does anyone know how to get extra inserts in south west florida? I have left 6 emails and 5 phones to the local paper and no response. Can anyone help.

      • Steph Patterson

        You can order inserts from me if you would like to. Send me an email, pattcoupons at gmail dot com.

    • I think it might be faster to list the inserts that are IN the montgomery advertiser than what isn't. i think we got 8 coupons overall this time.

      • Qpongirl

        Which inserts came out in this past Sundays papaer and were there less coupons than others who got the very same insert??

        • Stacey

          Red Plum and Samrt Source were skimpy.  At least the P & G was good.

    • Jesykat

      I did not get the P&G for valdosta Ga. not cool!!

    • Kathy

      I live in alabama and would like the smart source and redplum insert from the Atlanta Area. Does anyone sell them and can mail them to me?

      • Pattcoupons

        I sell Atlanta inserts, send me an email pattcoupons at gmail dot com.

        • Sonia Woolf

          Do you have a website?

          • Pattcoupons

            Yes koupon-kash dot com.

    • Qpongirl

      To all of you in the Montgomery area.  We live in the Marbury area.  Being new at this, we just went and bought a Birmingham news thinking it would be the best paper to buy.  This last time there was no Red Plum insert which has been listed on so many of the deals and I have missed out on them!  I am soooo frustrated.  Some people got that insert in the B'ham News.  I called Red Plum and B'ham News and they said it depends on the address the papers are bought at to determine if it went out in that route!  So, because I buy from a stand I have no idea what to do to be getting what I need.  I did find out that if I subscribe I would not get the more popular inserts where I live.  So I have no clue what to do…..I did find that Red Plum did come out in the Montgomery advertiser at the address I bought my paper, but I also have been reading that some people say that Montgomery Advertiser paper does not have as many coupons in the same booklet!  What do I do??

      • Stacey

        I live in Montgomery too.  My mom lives in Pike Road (5 miles from me) and she didn't get the Red Plum or Smart Source from the paper she bought at her local gas station.  A lot of times, I buy extra inserts from Coupons by Dede because it seems there are more than what the sorry Montgomery Advertiser has.  I have bought the Birmingham News as well.  Sometimes there are a few different coupons in there.  I also always check my papers bnefore I leave the store.  The stores have told me that there has been a rash of folks stealing them out of the papers.

    • irishjillm

      I live just north of Tampa. I have yet to find ANY store that does double coupons here.  Publix does have their competitor's coupon match guarantee so that does help. I love couponing and do well, but that show EC does not help.  They simply do not show the items we all need to buy each week that has NO coupons: milk, fruit, meat etc. So I think its deceiving.  You have to stick to just the coupon items, not what you really need it seems. Any leads on doubling stores near Tampa? Also, just my opinion, I have found that Walmart is NOT friendly about coupons. They will fight you every step of the way and the registers always skip coupons. I would go elsewhere really.
      Happy couponing!

      • Frazzledmama30

        There are absolutely no store in the Tampa area that double coupons. I live in Clearwater and have really done my research to try and locate one. Really sucks to because that's how you get the really good deals.

    • Sherry L.

      I get the AJC and The Activia coupon WAS in my RP Insert, but it is listed on here as not being in there, and my cousin gets the paper in Columbus, GA and it wasn't in that one? Strange, huh? I eat Activia everyday and coupons for it are rare, so I notice when they are there :-) I actually ordered 15 more on ebay – it was pretty cheap, not quite $3.00 total with shipping, WAY cheaper than buying a bunch more papers. I usually won't pay for coupons, but I will use all of those and save WAY more than I spent.

    • Pattcoupons

      You can find the AJC list of coupons on koupon-kash dot com. Check the inserts for sale and the list of coupons is there.

    • Rachlvschad_ro

      could u do this for Illinois? i just recently moved here and have noticed we get less cupons in our area. cant figure out where to buy the paper to get the best cupons. thanks.

    • PATTY

      Would love you to add Fayetteville, NC.  We are often short on the coupons-much less than Raleigh, NC.  We are a huge military community, I don't understand why they don't think the military needs coupons!  We do!!!!

    • Steph Patterson

      The inserts for the Atlanta Journal are available now at koupon-kash dot com.
