    • Debbie

      What is up with the expiration dates these days? Man, Soft Soap, Colgate, etc. expires 20 days, not even an entire MONTH, from when they come out! That is crazy. I’m anxious to see if the Dove Deodarant says NTS or not so we can use it at Target. And, boy I hope we get that $1 off Wishbone Dressing Q b/c it will be great on a double! Thanks for all you do Jenny!

      • Li

        I agree! What happened to a 60 to 90 day window for a coupon… i just started a few weeks back and i’ve already had to throw a lot in the kitchen trashcan…boo
        If there’s anyone out there with any ins with redplum and smartsource, maybe they’ll see this and take note
        i have noticed just a couple that seem to be good til late in the yr

        • Tabitha

          Oh…please don’t toss your expireds…Send them to the military overseas! I just sent a huge box today. Each time I’ve sent them, they really appreciate it!
          They can use them up to 6 months expired!

    • Rachel

      I got a huge Red Plum insert in my mail today (Raleigh, NC area). Jenny, do you include those mailers in your Q database? Would it be helpful to send you a list of what was in that mailer?


      • Sue

        Did you subscribe somehow to this or did it just “arrive”?

        • Rachel

          It just “arrived” along with a bunch of ads bundled together called “Midweek Values.” There is a recycle bin by the mailboxes at our apartment complex and I took 15 extra Red Plum inserts out of there! They continue a total of $32 worth of coupons!

          • Marlene

            It’s probably a duplicate of the 1/31 Red Plum insert – check this list you’ll probably see they’re similar.
            We get one in a mailer in Gastonia only it has many of the same coupons but not all of the ones that are in included with the Sunday Charlotte Observer – still extra coupons without having to buy the paper is a bonus for me.
            (That’s what is meant by getting a bigger paper, the Sunday Gaston Gazette will have a Smart Source insert but it will not have all the coupons that are in the Charlotte Smart Source –smaller market)
            I have yet to figure out why they do it that way.

    • jr


      A friend and I are going to start a coupon blog wondered if you or anyone else had any tips? We are wanting it to be frugal not just coupons. What is the difference between wordpress and blogspot? Which is better?

      Thanks for the advice

    • Val

      Wow more Marcal, do they come out every few months?

      • Debbie

        Seem to since I have been doing it since last March.

        • Selma

          Marcal has really good Qs but I haven’t been able to find their products in TN. Which store carries the Marcal products?

          • Donna

            Only Bilo carries them.

    • Priscilla

      I don’t know if Jenny has already put this out or not, but I just saw a commercial for $5 in coupons for MultiGrain Cheerios. Go to http://www.multigraincheerios.com and register. They will send 5 $1.00 coupons to you via email (one a week for 5 weeks). I love MultiGrain Cheerios ~ Yay!

      • Laura Higginbotham

        Thanks for the tip on the cheerios…I’m a “Cheerios gal” from way back!

    • Lisa

      The Red Plum insert this week will go great with the Publix store coupons in the Little Book of Big Buys and make it much easier to get the $10 gift card!

      • Tiffany

        Where do you get the Publix little book?

    • Dana

      OK the past 2 weeks, there have been NO coupon inserts whatsoever in any paper that is available at news stands or grocery stores. I have received them in the one I have delivered. And people who give me their coupons each week that subscribe got them as well. But I checked several places as did many of my friends and several people from my church and no one was able to find ANY on the stands. What is up with that?

      Anyone else encountered this? I know the subscribers get them first then if they run short they leave them out of the newstands. But for there to be NONE seems a bit strange.


      • Jenn

        I have encountered them being taken at our local WAGS. ALWAYS check your paper before purchasing them.

        • Dana

          I always encourage everyone to check first, however the past 2 weeks there have been NONE in ANY papers….????? Not just at one store we are talking 2 grocery stores, CVS, Wags, and 3 different gas stations. What a dissapointment. :(

      • Heather

        What market are you in? I get the St. Pete Times delivered and there have been no SS inserts the past two weeks. I read something about them no longer providing their inserts to this market, but I find it hard to believe. I would think it would be financially beneficial for SS to include their inserts in a large market newspaper.

        • Dana

          I am in the Ft Myers area. We get the Ft. Myers News-Press here. It has had the SS the past two weeks but only in the Home Delivered Papers!

          • Heather

            I get home delivery but no SS the past three weeks. I’m tempted to buy some via e-bay but they sell them in lots of 5 and I really don’t use that many multiples.

      • Susan

        We have experienced a similar problem here. I went in last Sunday to get a couple of papers. I always check them first. They had both inserts. A couple of hours later my husband went to run an errand and I asked him to grab me 2 more papers. He called from the store to say there was only one paper left with both inserts. It’s really sad that honest people are suffering because of the misdeeds of others. It’s stealing no matter how you look at it.

      • amy s.

        Interesting, we picked up a paper at a local Kroger and it didn’t have inserts either last week, but I just thought is was random. I’m going to make sure I check the papers now.

    • carolyn

      i ll be buying a few more papers this week! hope to find a cvs that has them for a dollar !

      • Jenn

        If you can’t find them there, Walgreens has them for $.88, Walmart $.98, Dollar Tree $1.00. HTH

    • Elizabeth

      I didn’t know where to post this, but I’ve heard that there’s a $4 off Knox gelatin internet coupon out there. Anybody seen it?

    • Brenda

      There is a mailout from Target with 26 various store coupons for specific types of products but can be used on any brand of the product. Used the 50 cent cheese coupon at Publix Hwy 29 at Doug Baker Blvd. with no problem.
      They expire 3/1/2010.

    • Daisy

      I miss getting my weekly Charlotte Observer since the St. Andrews newstand closed. Did anyone have any luck in convincing the circulation department of C.O. to add Columbia to their delivery area now or in the future? Like others, I had contacted them–in the hope of swaying them with all the potential customers they would have in this area, but only received a reply recommending the nearest Chester delivery spot. Thanks!

      • Leah

        I contacted them as well. You can have the paper mailed to you. If I remember correctly it was about the same cost as Sunday’s State newspaper.

    • jan in sc

      FYI- in the Parade insert there is a $1 coupon for Keebler TownHouse Crackers and a web site for more deals!!! I live in the Greenville SC area and there is always a Parade in the Greenville Journal on Friday. This gives us an extra one that will also be in this Sunday’s paper.

    • jan in sc

      Actually their are the Keebler Club Cracker

    • Mrs Jenny, is there anywhere I can send my coupons that I don’t use to? I know there are others out there who would love to have extra of these coupons. please help. I don’t use a lot of the coupons. I don’t want them wasted. thanks for everything. god bless

      • Pamela

        I leave my extras on the shelves in the store neat the products they are for. I cal it the coupon fairy effect. Sometimes I find others I need that someone else has left. Just a suggestion.

      • Jess

        Check out this blog for sending your expired coupons to military families:


      • If you go to couponmom.com, there is a spot for military families that can use expired coupons.

        • They can use any coupons, and up to at least 3 months expired.

    • Renee

      Ladies, whatever you do, please don’t throw any coupons away. The troops and their families overseas can use them up to 6 months after expiration. If you need a place to send them I can help you find one. It is very gratifying to know that you can help them save on their grocery and household bills since they are already doing so much for the rest of us.

      • The only thing is, it gets very expensive to mail them.

      • Jennifer

        Please tell me where to send expired coupons please. I would like to help out.

      • Syndi

        Get a church group or socia; group to cover the cost. We mail a box a month, I have my Wagreens managers collecting from other couponers. I collect them and our church womens guild covers the shipping. If you church doesn’t have a group to cover it speak to a larger church in you area amd I would be willing to bet they would.. Please don’t throw them away…..


    • Mrs. Morgan

      I just bought 3 seemingly-complete AJCs. All 3 had Publix inserts, Parade (w/coupon!), and Red Plum. I’m missing the Smart Source insert entirely. Any other Georgians missing SS?

      • LizC

        My SS is missing, too! I thought someone had snagged it, but maybe it is a GA problem? We get the Augusta Chronicle. I plan on calling them in the morning and finding out what in the world is going on with my inserts. I only buy the paper for the inserts and it drives me insane when they aren’t in there.

        • Mrs. Morgan

          My mom lives in Cobb, and she got all inserts. I’m in Gwinnett. I may try calling the AJC. In the meantime, I’m checking my Grandmother’s paper (though she lives in my county!)

        • cb

          Not a single SS in Athens at the Kroger or Publix. I checked an entire stack and the CS clerk said that others had complained. This upsets me.

        • LizC

          I called my paper today. The guy says he will look into it. I hope something gets done. It frustrates me to no end that my paper didn’t have the advertised $307 in savings.

    • Tanya

      There were NO coupons at all in the Tennesean (Nashville). I mean I checked 6 different papers at 3 different stores and no q’s. On the from of the paper it said , “Valuable coupons inside”

    • Kelly

      There were no SS inserts in my paper either…in western NC.
