      Did not find the Knorr pasta sides coupon in the red plum or SS. Anyone else have that problem?

        By the way….Atlanta Journal…

    • lrose57

      Went to the Walgreens and the Wal Mart in Seneca and only one insert in the papers… but 2 in my home delivered Greenville News… not happy since I always get a t least 2 papers…

    • Holly

      I am from the birmingham area. I bought my paper at Walmart this week and did not recieve the Red Plum insert. I have called the bham news and they will not deliver to my address, but they said they are not required to put all of the inserts in the papers in the box. Has anyone else had this problem?

      • Lianna

        I didn't get the Red Plum either. I don't live in Bham but 30 mins away. My 5/16 paper had NO inserts; from the comments I read from other Bham News readers, many readers outside of the Birmingham area didn't get inserts and when they called the paper, they basically got the same answer you did (too bad, not our problem!).

      What does it mean if there isn't a link for my newspaper? Ex. Florida – Orlando Sentinel

    • Do you have trouble with your binder rings not working? I've tried 2 different binder systems that look alot like yours but my rings “go bad” – when I try to turn the pages, the rings don't fully meet and cause the pages I've so carefully built fall out!
      this really hampers my ability to take the coupons with me to the store – I've had pages fall out more than once…
      thanks for any suggestions! Karen

        I get folders (they get really cheap just after school starts) I put rp on one side and ss on the other, and put a post it on the front of the folder with the date. this holds all my coupons together really well and you can put the folders in the 3 ring binder and be able to remove your coupons without fighting with the rings or tearing your coupons trying to get them out.

      Does anyone else have trouble pulling this particular list…my computer keeps showing 'no url' when I click on any of the newspaper links…thanks

      The Durham Herald-Sun, which used to always have coupons identical to the Raleigh News & Observer, no longer carries the SmartSource insert at all! I had called them to complain that my Sunday paper was missing the Smartsource for 3 weeks in a row. After I pressed for information from a supervisor, they finally told me that they wouldn't have any SmartSource coupons for the foreseeable future. Of course I cancelled my subscription on the spot. I really wonder what prompted them to drop one of the few remaining reasons there are for people to buy a newspaper these days.
