Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 3/21.

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. There are variations every week.

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 inserts 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.

    • Donna

      Thanks to Mrs. Bubba for The Macon Telegraph variations. I could never find the time to type and submit these.

      How do you find out what will actually be in your paper ahead of time, do you contact the newspaper? I live in Myrtle Beach and have been very frustrated with the coupon inserts that my paper doesn't/does put out. For instance last week most areas received 2 coupon inserts but my paper NONE!! Unless of course you subscribe and have the paper delivered and then there was 2! Usually there is one less a week than what everyone else around the country gets. Is this because my paper is too cheap to buy the inserts or are the inserts possibly getting stolen before they make it to the new-stand? Thanks in advance for any answers or advice any of you might have!

        Karen, I purchased 3 of the Sun news in Myrtle Beach last weekend and NONE of them had coupons even tho the front page stated “$133 worth of coupons inside”. It was a mistake. I went to the newspaper in person on Monday and received all my coupons! Call them and see if you can still get them.

    • Gina

      Jenny says, “If you see that you did not get a coupon that was released, you can go to online coupon sites and order it”. How do you actually do this?? New to this…

    • Chris

      where is the best place to get the AJC in Savannah? Public has it but they often don't have all or any of the coupon inserts. thanks

    • chaliz

      The zyrtec coupons were in my copy of the Post & Courier in Charleston, SC!

    • DENISE

      If you see that you did not get a coupon that was released, you can go to online coupon sites and order it”. SO WHERE IS THE ORDER PART? DOES ANYBODY KNOW?

    • To Phillis (Tennessean): Are we getting the Hellman's coupon this weekend? I didn't see it listed at all. Thank you!

    • mel

      What about Louisiana?

    • not sure where else to post this question – Does anyone have a spreadsheet/computer based format for keeping track of your own coupons? I'm trying to figure out how to efficiently compile my data and keep track of if I've already used a certain coupon (or sets of them) so I don't have to manually go through my inserts or any other random coupons I get that are kept in alphabet expanda-files. Any suggestions or blank masters would be great. :)

    • ncangel

      I live in Raleigh, and the list says I should have gotten the Hasbro insert, but I never saw it. Is it just bad luck or did nobody here in Wake Co get this insert?
