Click on the paper near you to see what coupons were actually in the inserts around the South East. Check out the differences to really get an idea of what paper is the best to buy. There are variations every week.

As folks send me the lists I will update with links so check back if your paper is not up yet.

If you haven’t seen your paper covered in a while and would like to cover it just send any changes for your area and I’ll get them posted!!

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.

      Hey Jenny,
      Is anyone covering Tallahassee Democrat? I would like to cover if not….what do I need to do?

    • Anita

      I love this list! I find it to be such a timesaver! Is this something that will be done weekly? You guys are awesome!

      Is there a place where we can find this info for the mobile, al paper? (mobile press register) There tends to be major differences in the ads in this paper.

    • Jessie

      What do the different colors mean? Black, red, blue?

    • Molly

      How do paper’s decide which coupons to run? Can we lobby our paper to have a better selection? We’ve started buying the Birmingham paper on Sundays too, because the Montgomery paper doesn’t have a great selection.

      I don`t understand why, but for the second week now, it seems, that I hardly get any coupons. I live in SC, and get the Post and Courier. I am still hunting down the State, have not been able to get it. I know I am supposed to have less, but not this much less!!! The last week`s paper has basicly had almost only pet food…this week, there was a LOT missing compared to the list above. I don`t know why or what to do?
      Anybody smarter than me?!!!
      Thanks!

        The State is missing just as much as the Post. If things don’t improve pretty soon, I’m thinking about having the Raleigh newspaper mailed to me. It’s $15/month, so I’ll give it a few weeks to improve. But we’ve been missing so many lately, that it is actually starting to seem like a pretty good idea.

      I only got the SS coupons from the TN there was no RP in the paper I bought or the coupons that my dad brought me.
