Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 3/27.

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.

      Does anyone know why the amount of the coupon would be different? I bought a sunday paper and got a $2.00 of Smart Balance milk coupon in it and then when my coupons came that I ordered from wholecouponinsert.com the coupon was $1.00 off. Does that happen often?

      I get the AJC and I didn't get many of the coupons that are listed on the variation. I would say I didn't get almost 50% of what is listed. I bought a lot of papers from 3 different locations. Did anyone else have this problem?

      • Bee

        I was just going to post that I went to 3 different stores and while all the papers had 2 SS, none had the Red Plum but apparently home delivery got it. I get KNS but I'll be darned if I'm paying for their crappy paper to be delivered. I checked into it and they offer no “deals” for just Sunday delivery and they want people to do auto draft from checking or credit card. Uh, no thanks.

        • There is an annual coupon expo at Faith United Methodist where KNS sells Sunday only subscriptions at a seriously reduced price, roughly a dollar or so per paper per week. They just hosted the most recent one a few weeks ago. I asked the KNS representative why I hadn't seen this offer advertised online or anywhere else & they said they only offer it at the coupon expo & other very limited occasions. They offered the ability to get Sundays in multiples of 3 or 5 too! I signed up for 5 & it is so much fun to get 5 Sunday papers every single Sunday in my driveway! :-)

          • Bee

            Thank you!!!!

      • guest

        yes, I had that problem as well. I purchased 3 AJC's & I cute 4 coupons out of the SS b/c the rest was advertisements. I was very disappointed.

        • guest

          I meant “cut”… it's early! LOL

      • Susanne

        I also had this problem with the AJC. I went to four locations which two of them had the short SS inserts and the other two had the entire SS inserts. Needless to say, I bought them where they were the entire SS inserts. The short inserts were the same one that was in the Henry County paper.

      Why Memphis is not available to check? Commercial Appeal

    • Saviorbucks

      Anyone else want to help Kerry and I with the Sunday Variations for the Charlotte Observer? Please:)

    • Saviorbucks

      These variations lists are supplied to Jenny through volunteers (blog readers, etc) She posts the variations that are submitted to her, if the link isn't there then that that paper wasn't covered. Anyone can volunteer to do them, just email Jenny!

      • Saviorbucks

        sorry, I meant to post this in reply to Leticiag30

      • Leticiag30

        Thanks so much for expaining this to me.

    • Stephanieevers

      I got the Orlando Sentinel, and I got the Red Baron Coupons.

    • Jlaleonard

      I dont see the P&G coupons in the Charlotte Observer. I am hoping for the Olay Bar $2/1 coupon. Anyone know for sure?

    • Rosie

      Do all the variations of coupons make it into the coupon database? I am wondering if I need to keep track of any additional coupons that came from my paper myself.

    • Shirlser

      Hi Amanda, I live near Chattanooga and get the times free press and there are several coupons you listed that was in the Sun. paper, that was not in mine. What's with the different colors that you use, does it mean some were not in the paper? Could you email me at my private email. Shirlser@yahoo.com

      Thanks

    • grrlpanda

      I live in St. Augustine and our local paper only has one insert so I normally get the Jacksonville Times Union but I bought the Daytona paper last week as well and found out the coupons are different just between those two papers. I will try and get my act together and do the Daytona version.
