This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 1/1/12.
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.

      Variations?? :)

      • Jkk1110

        not all papers get the same coupons. Coupons can vary by where you live and even what paper you get. She posts this list to make it easier to see which ones you got and which ones you didn’t. You can print this list and keep it with your coupons so that when you make your list from her site you can easily see if you have that coupon or not without looking through your coupons. :) HTH

    • Carly11

      My AJC had all of the WalMart Q’s…. and several of the ones that were listed in red on the PDF….I’m on the Southside of the city

      • Elizabeth

        Ditto here. Also in south metro ATL. I receive a subscription but also bought an extra double pack and they all had some of the ones posted as not included (o.b. and Carefree are 2 examples.) Also had the WM insert.

        • Elizabeth

          Also wanted to point out that if you buy the AJC double packs, ALWAYS check the inserts in both papers before buying. Not only check they are actually in the paper but check the edge or binder of the inserts to make sure they say “supplement to the Atlanta Journal Constitution.”  Often times the AJC will in put in inserts intended for the smaller neighborhood papers which DO NOT include all of the coupons.

      • Sunningmyself2

        Also here…I’m on the northside though.  Did not have the Target insert, but had the rest.

        • Aubrey

          I am on the northside of Atlanta and received the Walmart coupons in my delivered paper AND an extra paper I purchased.  I did not have the Target insert in my delivered paper but it was in the purchased one.  It was mostly Target store coupons to match the J&J coupons from the SS insert.  Hope that helps!

    • guest

      PSST, Jenny check typo in your first sentence and then delete my comment. I think it was a c/p error rather than typo

    • Boricuabebi

      i love that you put these together..it makes it so much easier for us..thanks!

    • Debee2000

      Wanted to share with you that variations are even within the same paper. I have the Augusta Chronicle delivered me. I have friends that help and what they get in that paper can be different from mine.

    • Thank you to Michelle in Montgomery!
      I am pretty frustrated, though.  I copy and paste the list into Word and then delete all of the red ones.  Today, that took five pages down to one!!!!!

    • Julie

      I wish I was in Atlanta.  :(  I live about 1 1/2 hours south.  Columbus doesn’t have as many and I never go that way.

      • Pattcoupons

        you can order Atlanta inserts from koupon-kash . com

      I get the Pensacola News Journal as a subscription and did not receive the Target coupons.  Supposedly in our area, subscribers get the coupons first, then the rest go into the papers sold in stores.  Can anyone else confirm if there were coupons in the PNJ?

    • Sa M_moore

      i live in ft mitchell Alabama and get the ledger enquirer and my coupons are always different is there a list for this paper ty pleses let me know  sa.m_moore@yahoo.com

    • Anonymous

      I have a question hope this doesn’t sound stupid but what does regional mean or where is regional

      • tina

        regional as in different coupons for different areas some coupons are for higher values for different areas as well

    • Michael P

      I live in Birmingham, AL.   The paper I buy at my Starbucks in Trussville does not include the Target coupons.   If I drive to the south side of town on Hwy 280, the Birmingham News will include the Target coupons.  Seems odd since there is a Target on 280 and in Trussville.   But always that way.

    • Snowdogmom

      The Charlotte Observer list said there was no SS(General Mills) and Walmart insert. My Charlotte Observer had both. No Target coupons as is stated.

      • Sing4him

        My Charlotte Observer had the SS(General Mills) but no Walmart. I was actually told by a Charlotte Observer Rep that the people who deliver the papers are actually keeping the coupons out and selling them on ebay:(

        • Christie

          wow, They know it but aren’t doing anything about it?

        • Snowdogmom

          Well if I don’t get my coupon inserts that I think should be in there based on what Jenny says should come I call the Observer and complain. If subscribers do that and they think the delivery people are keeping them then if enough people complain they will do something about it. If I didn’t get the coupons I wouldn’t subscribe to the paper. They can’t afford to loose subscribers.

    • wendyc33

      Montgomery advertiser stinks. wow its all red. I dont know why though.

    • Cindy Lou

       I wonder what it would cost to have the coupons sent from the Atlanta area to an area around Pensacola, FL. I have relatives living in the Atlanta area. Does anyone know?

    • Kiki

      So, did anyone besides Orlando actually get the Target insert??  I get the PNJ and for whatever reason, it seems like we’re always jipped on the Q’s.  WE did get more than some others this time, but I really think some retailers around here are coupon-phobic.  :/ 

    • Mkk389

      Jenny, the link to the Asheville Citizen times is not working. It takes me to a Southern Savers login page.
      Thank you for putting this together, I really appreciate it!

    • Dpmcbay

      sponse to Leslie, in reference to so few coupons in Meridian, MS paper……We spend part of our year in Hattiesburg and the other at our home in Nashville, TN……In Hattiesburg I do not even come close to getting the coupons I do in Nashville.  If you know someone in a larger city that will buy the paper and mail to you, that is what I do.  Other than that look into a clipping service.  I know several people in MS that do and have good luck with it.  Hope this helps!

    • Mama23babygirls

      FYI- The Ft Lauderdale Sun Sentinel did have all the Target coupons in the insert. They were marked as red, no included.

    • greenvillecoup

      Was sad to see no Greenville news lately so I did this weekends SS (1/15)… Jenny, shared with you via Google

    • Misty S

      I received the Tuscaloosa News as well and looked at the list above to see some differences. I did receive the Target insert (which shocked me as this was a first in the TNews) as well as the Walmart insert (which I have always gotten). I also got alot of the coupons that were in the red. Not sure where the paper was gotten from that the coupon diff was printed for. I either get mine from Vickie at the news office or from Walmart in Northport
