Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 10/3.

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. 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. A way to decide what paper is the best paper in your area to buy.

      Thanks April! I love having this list to file with my coupons.

    • Rickandteresa

      I got the AJC Sunday and only got one insert. I have noticed there is an early edition and regular edition. Does it make a difference what paper you get for coupons???

      • Lacey

        Sometimes the early edition has all the coupons b/c it is printed on Saturday.. I buy the bundle on Sunday that has both editions, but mine had all the inserts this week.

    • Ferguson012708

      It would be great if you could cover Arkansas as well. We are part of the “south”…

      • Val

        You should send her an email with your variations. I'm sure she'd post it for everyone.

      • tygirl13

        She can only post what people send her. She doesn't get all the papers from every state in the “south” to post. If “someone” from Arkansas sent her a list I am sure that she would post it…

    • Rosemary

      There were no coupons in the Atlanta Journal on Sunday. I went to the store specifically to buy the paper. It says on the front of the paper there are coupons but no. The store said there was some sort of difference of opinion between the paper and the coupon distributors. What can we expect in the future from the AJC. I live in Athens and buy my paper at publix. Also, please remind people not to take coupons out of the papers they are not buying. This seems to be a big problem. If you want the coupons, you should buy the paper.

      • Abcfa97

        I have also had problems in the past with AJC. However, i called customer service and a very nice lady mailed the coupons that I was missing out to me. It took about a week but I got the coupons! Give them a call! HtH

        • Lacey

          I usually have great success with Val at the AJC mailing my coupons to me.

    • glamourpaws

      I agree w/ Rosemary on the part of taking coupons from over papers but not buying. What also makes me mad is when people buy their papers by putting the coins into the bins that are located outside on the streets. Instead of taking one paper that they paid for, they take several! That is wrong and is considered STEALING!

    • Jen

      What are the websites we can order the coupons

      • Ashley

        I would like to know this too… can't figure out where I'm supposed to order ones I dont have…

    • I don't know what's up with the Charlotte Observer variations. My Smart Source had most of the coupons that this list has in red. Is it the correct list?

    • Qponklink

      I bought the Gainesville Sun(FL) and the Nivea coupon wasn't included in the RP.

    • Wendy R

      Just wondering if anyone in the Tenn. area could help me….I will be in the area of pigeon forge…which paper should I pick up? which one seems to do better coupons.

    • Stacylynnsdesk

      I was wondering if anyone could help me with coupon insert variations for the atlanta journal for 9/19. For some reason I can't find 9/19 on here period. Thanks to everyone who takes time to send this in, and a special thanks to Big John who sends in the Atlanta Journal inserts every week! My email address is stacylynnsdesk@yahoo.com if anyone could email them to me that would be great.
