    • Joevvjoe

      cant wait to see whats gonna be missing for this weeks inserts.

      • kp

        LOLOL..if you are in upstate SC, almost EVERYTHING!  I can’t tell you the last time I saw a milk-bone coupon in ours and anything I get excited about, we don’t get.

        • Joevvjoe

          i think someone from the newspaper hub takes good ones out and sells them lol my wife say it just happens. like this past sunday was looking for schick and not a one… oh well…will make do with what i get

          • Dearela

            I am with you…from Pickens County and it seems all the good ones were missing again! Hope we can get some of the good ones! Tired of buying inserts off ebay!

            • 28086

              Call the news paper a few days before and leave a message to the carrier  letting him know to make sure your inserts are there or else you will cancel your subscription.  It worked for me. I get the Charlotte Observer.

        • Crownstar

          I have plenty of milk bone coupons…email me what you are looking for and I’ll send them to you. crownstar@comcast.net

        • Kc

          What qs are u interested n. if there’s something that makes u excited lol, tme. I usually have lots extra & I’m super stocked up. I live in Oklahoma and we have a store that doubles $1 well a couple, and this unique store that routinely marks groceries at cost ( at least 15 a week). They just fill grocery carts with stuff & stick a big .99 sign on them. So I get tons of stuff free.

          Casey. Ppeter4914@aol.com

          • Pinkchick82686

            sounds great.  wish NC was like that.  Food is so expensive.

        • Kc

          I also have extra snack pik qs & peppridge farm booklet. The same crazy store gets tons of coupon booklets. It’s a high high volume low cost zero advertising store. The mftrs can’t have space at his store unless he is guaranteed the lowest price within 60 mile radius. This store is crazy, literally at end of ea day not uncommon shelves half full. Prices change every day. Kinda like Christmas every time I go n there, never know what’s free.

      • malou

        I know how you feel. Im starting to think I should just buy whole inserts from online. 

        • lisa

          is it me or do the inserts seem to be wimpy? its like they dont want to put .75 cents or .50 cents cuz the tripples are gonna hit end of jan

          is it me or do the inserts seem to be wimpy…no food deals..??

    • I think central FL is on a different schedule. I could swear we just got all the Pillsbury Q’s last week. Or maybe theres just so many different Pillsbury products I am getting them confused. Oh well, only Sunday will tell :)

      •  I live in orlando (central florida) and I received the Pilsbury on Sunday, 12/4 but there are weeks when I get Pilsbury coupons week after week so you might still be getting the Pilsbury coupon this week.

        • Anonymous

          I live in Orlando also, and the Pillsbury part of my binder is about to explode.

    • Grocerys4us

      I live in Anderson, SC and sometimes I see posts that comment inserts are missing from the Greenville News. The crazy thing is I get the inserts in Anderson (from the Greenville News) and the ones from the Anderson Independent are missing. I purchase my papers at a convenience store where they are watched. You have to pick them up right in front of the cashier so if they are missing it is the delivery person’s fault.

      • Ken

         Just remember that only newspaper subscribers are guaranteed coupon inserts.  That isn’t saying that they aren’t in there, they just aren’t guaranteed to be.  We have found a store that dependably has the inserts and we stick with them.

        • Guest

          Even the Subscribers don’t get the coupon inserts.  My dh bought me a subscription and over 1/2 of the weeks the coupon inserts were missing.

          • Hairxpert4

            yes, i just started having the sunday paper delivered here in florida for 89 cents! i was so excited it was like Christmas! only to find i only got 1 insert!!!
            I called the paper and they won’t charge me but it’s the whole point. I think maybe some people get delivery positions so they can take them. Otherwise, why wouldn’t we get them?

            • Donnag35044

              yeah we got insert being stolen from our papers too .. b’ham news company has some people on tape stealing the inserts but they arent prosecuting . if they started prosecuting and put it on the news people might quit stealing the inserts

        • Mstisa6

          I was so upset when I went to three different stores in the area and couldnt find any coupons period! I called the newspaper and said I was certain that someone was stealing all the inserts. I asked if they were holding the newspaper people responsible for missing inserts. Of course they said ‘no’ and the only way to guarantee receipt of your coupons is to be a subscriber. Well now I’m a pissed off subscriber because I’m still not getting my inserts. Someone out there is making out like a bandit and the newspaper is not doing one thing about it. Smartsource should send them in the mail like redplum. I always get my redplum inserts. Better yet give the newspapers to the mailservice and keep these postal carriers in business!

    • Puddin

      I buy my sunday papers at a store in my area, last sunday i was checking to make sure 2 incerts were in each paper before i bought them and the manager came over and told me to stop checking the papers! Really! I I told him I don’t want to buy a paper without the coupons and it’s happened several times here. He kept going on about it but i wouldn’t let up, I was going to make my point! He didn’t seem to give a hoot if i’m cheated out of my coupon incerts or not

      • Rodie3kds

        I had a similar problem this week with my circulars. I bought 10 papers and there were only 3 circulars in the 10 papers.  I received my other 7 circulars today, but that taught me a valuable lesson in checking the papers before I leave the store.

      • AmyLeigh540

        I checked my papers before I bought them also. I was SO SUPRISED when I got home and was looking through them. Some Jackass actually clipped some of the coupons out and put the inserts back in the paper. It had to have been a store employee………..This was definately a first for me….LOL It actually cracked me up……..I was just a bit shocked. Can hardly still believe it…..LOL

      • donnag35044

        he might be the one gettin them out of his stores papers then cause most stores dont mind if u check to see if it has the coupons , if i was u i’d find a new store to do my newspaper business with cause that was just plain rude and disrespectful!!!

        • Cheryl

          I would not only find a new store to buy my newspapers, but anything else. I would not buy from a store with a manager who is that rude. Also could report him to the corp. office.

    • MRB1017

      I hate that I don’t get RedPlum here in Jacksonville, NC… I could so use those Axe body wash coupons. :( It’s the only kind my husband uses…

      • Sokolsinga

        when you find coupons you like that you don’t get, try one of the coupon clipping sites or ebay.  You can often get a set of 20 for around $2

      • Sweetshugbaby

        Hi, I wont be using my Axe coupons, I’d be happy to give them to you my email is sweetshugbaby@gmail.com

      • Rlynn103

        I’ll send you mine!  rlynn103@hotmail.com

      • Ajoyner5

        I don’t know if you ever travel to New Bern but on Sunday’s in the local sun journal they have the RedPlum coupons

        • Clineleann

          Thats good to know!! I’m from New Bern nc, and I started couponing after i moved to MS w/ my husband, im going home for Christmas and I was hoping their newspapers would still have the inserts in them!

          • Sandym25713

            I don’t know if you guys are aware that the HT in Morehead is still doing Superdoubles…call first to make sure.  We drove over last Sat and it was sure worth it…the shelves were stocked and we did great!

            • Bookkeeper2951

              they are not doing superdoubles in morehead, nc, it triples I was there twice this week.

      • Bonbon1963

        you can buy whole inserts on ebay i have bought them on there

      • Melanie Crutchley

        MRB1017 – I would be happy to share mine with you.  I have stocked up on them so I won’t be using ours.  Please email me with your address.   My email is melcrutch@aol.com.  Melanie

      • Waltershell53

        order them online cheaper anyway just paying for what you want

        • where do you order the coupons?

          • Sis2

            Try ebay or couponclippers or coupondede.  Those are places that I have used.

      • Anonymous

        Look for a retailer who sells the Raleigh paper. You can find locations online. I had to do that in Wilmington because or paper had awful coupons.

      • Jotaylor671

        yes you can try the stores that sell the Raleigh paper that paper has better coupons anyway. you can find them at some of your gas stores or just call around to see what store has them. and you also can go online and get books of coupons just go under couponing .. Good luck to ya

    • Donnaterryl

      im new at couponing and when i printed my coupons i noticed some of the numbers under the lower bar code didnt print, is this still ok to use?

      • Jgutierrez

        no you can not use them where did you printed the coupons from?

      • Sis2

        They should work fine.  The bar code will scan without the numbers underneath it. 

      • Efranks41

        I’ve used coupons before where the numbers didn’t print under the barcode…they worked just fine. The scanner just has to be able to scan the barcode all the way across. Just try it…I’m sure it will scan.

    • Angelas001

      Eeek, yeah! I’m waiting to do the band-aid rebate for the Cars2 bluray, and I think the time has come! Between band-aid q’s, the Target $5 GC q above, and then a $10 rebate for the movie and band-aids (in addition to a Kimberly Clark rebate with the movie) I’m a very happy woman!

    • hey

      I was buying my paper every Sunday for a store.  It cost me $2.14 a week for one paper until a friend explained I could subscribe as a new customer for home delivery for a dollar and order additional papers for a dollar a piece.  I have only the Sunday paper delivered for $3.00.  This is a lot easier than driving to the store every Sunday morning.

      • Linda

        I tried doing this with the Tennessean and the will only allow one per address is what we were told.

        • Cheryl

          I was told the same thing about the Tennessean. Boo!!

        • cruz1264

          With “Gannett” papers (including the Tennessean) you can actually have up to 10 copies home delivered, but can only get one copy at a promotional discount.  The other 9 have to be on a seperate, “published subscription rate” account. This may or may not be cheaper than purchasing at the newstand, but is definitely more convenient than running out to the store…and if there are shortages of coupons, the home delivery subsribers get them first…The stores will be the ones shorted.

    • Fujimo6308

      I’m lucky to have a nephew who delivers papers, He gives me all the left over’s and a few bundles of the yes adds every Sunday.. But I got ripped on the soup coupons some one took all them out..

      • Sandreca77

        i buy my papers at walmart im there when the guy drops them off and  i bought 2 with no coupons and walmart  or my walmart uses 16 for the rei get a free set there the csm said 6 papers had no coupons  so i dont know if its some one takeing them ora mess up
        but i dont read the paper and i hate to waste money lol

    • Stacia B.

      I hope I can get my hands on these coupons. I didn’t get any SS last Sunday. Would love to have these when Super Doubles come around again at HT considering some of them for $1 or more are good until February and March!

    • Elsiecot

      Are there any stores in Fl that still do coupon doubling? I know they don’tin the Tampa area, but I heard they still do in Orlando… Maybe worth the drive??

      • Faulje1

        Nope none here in Orlando that I’ve been able to find.

    • Donnag35044

      is it true that coupons from california and north carolinas money value is higher i’m from bama and trying to find friends who might want to swap a few coupons thru the mail i been needing dry cat food coupons but i aint seen none in  2 months

      • Mamacitapapacito

        hello im from attalla al and i dont think i got any cat food q but if you are interested in still trading let me know. email me at mamacitapapacito@hotmail.com

      • Ldtott

        I just forced some cat food coupons on my cousin.  I KNOW she’s not going to use them either….um um um….I wish I had held on to them.  I’m in Atlanta and I will keep you in mind from now on as I cut coupons.

    • Kampmeier69

      They aren’t putting no coupons in my paper. Gotta get them from ebay.

      • Carol


      • live2save

        many of the stores have changed their policies, the price of the paper went up, and the dollar store no longer carries the paper. The game has changed.  

    • live2save

      Too bad the companies are not putting coupons in the paper like they used to.  Too bad the prices if items have gone up to the point that a $1.00 is no longer a good deal.  I need some help from my expert couponers! What should I do?  I need to stock for the year on household items.  I need a NEW Game Plan

    • patricia white

      I live in Tennessee in a very small town. There isnt a grocery store anywhere around me that doubles coupons anymore, so to get some of the best deals i shop at the dollar store now.  If anyone is interested in trading coupons email me @ patriciawhite1987@yahoo.com. I have tons of pain reliever, pillsbury, and other coupons that i have either stocked up on or dont use the products offered.

    • Brooke

      No coupons in any of my charlotte observers.. Which were bought from 2 different stores? Did anyone else get coupons in there charlotte papers?

      • Ahah

        I have bad luck with the Charlotte papers…. Usually stick with Hickory paper

      • Dcobb23

        Hi I live in Granite Falls, NC…I hae to get to the store at 5:30 to get my papers because if I don’t, people insert their $2 and dig through them. The store empoyees say they don’t have anything to do with the papers…it is a seperate matter that I have to contact the Charlotte Observer about!!!  So I get there before they deliver them and wait to I know mine aren’t picked through.  I have a feeling it is the deliverer in my location…FYI!  =D

    • Anyone here get the AJC? did it have the AXE coupons in from today?

      • Pattcoupons

        AJC had the AXE coupons in the RedPlum

    • madincookeville

      I just got 3 Sunday Tennessean Papers and it said “Get valuable coupoins inside”….. There was NOT one insert inside.  REALLY!!!!?????

    • Letlovegrow1125

      If anyone needs Enfamil Coupons from a few weeks ago e mail me: letovegrow1125@gmail.com

    • Angelas001

      The Tennessean didn’t have the Free Target gift card $5 wyb (5) SC Johnson items (Target coupon) (exp 12/24)- instead there was a $5 GC when you buy some batteries plus some Uno toy or the Loopz toy.

      Anyone have the Johnson rebate in theirs? It’s about the only thing I wanted, so I’ll trade anything I got today or have already. Email me at angelas001 at comcast dot com

    • rustyred

      Was told by a Charlotte Observer Rep at a Christmas Show that Charlotte is splitting coupons up in the papers throughout the week. Kinda a bummer, since you now have to buy the paper everyday to get them.

    • Tammy C

      Where is a good place to get the Sunday paper in Nashville for $1.00 or less? CVS had them for $0.99 at one time but they have changed.

    • Ctoney71208

      Went and got my sunday papers yesterday and even checked them to make sure that the coupons were inside… got home and there was only the smart source in each one and i bought 6!… So Mad!!

    • Peggysue937

      I bought four Sunday papers and only one of the four had a smart source! Really upset. I buy my papers from a store that keeps them behind the counter so the lack of inserts must be coming from whomever is responsible for putting them in there that works for the paper. I am going to make a point of calling and complaining!!!!!

    • Cenderle1964

      You can also buy from me! Tell me what you need and how many! I sell on ebay for .02each or I sale whole inserts as well! There has to be a minimum of $2 to get for .02each.
