Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 8/14.

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.

      Hmm…I did not get as many coupons with my paper as were listed for it. Very frustrating.

      I still have not figured out why some papers don’t have the stuff in them.  I bought a Birmingham paper and it didn’t have a Smart Source insert but it had Red Plum.

      • Bamabobbie

        They “say” at the Birmingham News a machine sorts all the ad section with I think 99% accuracy.  Well I’m usually the one that gets the 1% that’s wrong.  LOL  If I buy a paper somewhere I will check to make sure all the inserts are in there.

      • Kristel

        I bought the Birmingham paper and it didn’t have the insert for Red Plum but it had the Smart Source insert.

        • LaShonda

          I have purchased the Birmingham paper here in Montgomery 2 weeks in a row with no inserts. I wonder whats going on?

      The Huntsville pdf is not working. I tried to open it a couple times and a message popped up saying it did not start with %pdf-

      Thanks!!!

    • Momof2Boyce

      My husband bought 2 Winston Salem Journals & there was not a redplum in either one.  My friend at work had both the Smart Source & redplum.  I emailed them to ask about it, but have not gotten a response.

      Reguarding this comment from above….
      1. If you see that you did not get a coupon that was released, you can go to online coupon sites and order it.
      ~The coupon I need is a smart source coupon. I went on their site and did not see an option to “order” the coupon…am I over looking it? Does anyone know how to do this?

      • AC

        Coupons can be ordered on couponsthingsbydede.com, they charge a handling fee..

    • Caddocouponer

      I get the decatur daily and i bought 4 papers.  2 had redplum 2 had nothing!  i used to have home delivery but was constantly missing coupons and inserts only to be told that i lived in the county and wont get everything.  Two days ago i called them and they said that the only way to make sure i get them is to order the paper home delivery.  They claim they make no guarntee that the papers in the paperbox will have and coupons or inserts!!!  If i pay my 1.00 which  costs more than home delivery I expect my inserts and coupons.  Anyone else use decatur daily having issues. Decatur Daily in North AL.   thanks

      • Suzanne in SC

        I’m in SC and Iwork my CVS deal around getting 2 sunday papers.  With a 5 off 25 I think of those $5 paying for my papers.  I get them, move aside and look through  the papers to make sure they are there.  On rare ocasions, I have had to put one back and get another, but basically I don’t leave the store unless I know the expected Qs are there,

    • Spraymom

      I have never figured out to use this. The paper I get wont open up when I click on it in the list above. Isn’t it supposed to? Or does it just mean that all the GA papers listed have the same coupons? I have just never understood how to use this list…..Melissa

      • Jbush27

        It means no one in our area is reporting the coupon variations

        • Priscilla

          I actually sent variations to Jenny for the Augusta Chronicle and the AJC but she hasn’t posted them.  The AJC had lots of coupons that weren’t listed whereas the Augusta paper had only about half of the listed coupons. 

          • Debee2000

            Priscilla, I would be happy to share Augusta Chronicle job of posting the coupons with you. There are times when there is just too many changes and not enough time in my schedule. E-mail me at debee2000@yahoo.com.  Thanks

            • I can also help in the reporting of coupons in the Augusta Chronicle. I live and purchase my 2 copies in North Augusta if that makes a difference. My husband has band practice on Sundays and I’m often left to my own devices during that time and am currently unemployed and have no kids so I have PLENTY of spare time to help with that project lol! :D

    • LaMaGu

      The link to the huntsville times does not work :(

    • couponqueen

      I bought 5 papers AJC in Lithonia.  All 5 had SS only 1 of the 5 had RP.  Will I have to start checking each paper before I leave with them?

      • Jbush27

        I bought papers in Decatur and I only got Smart Source.  I was so mad and I don’t know what to do about it.

    • Dstemp5

      Greenville News put absolutely no coupon inserts in any newspaper delivered to Clinton, SC area grocery stores and gas stations last Sunday. Very Disappointing!!!!!!!!

    • Melissaallen31302

      How do we send you the list of what we had in our paper or not?  I know via email

      • Debee2000

        e-mail it to her. Look for “contact me” button way on the bottom by her picture
