Going Nuts? I can help you understand coupon terms and abbreviations

This Sunday, 3/28, you will have (3) inserts in your newspaper:

(2) SmartSource inserts
(1) RedPlum insert

Note: Procter & Gamble moved their insert to 4/4. Normally we would not need an Easter paper, it’s probably all a conspiracy of some sorts.

Remember all coupons vary by region and newspaper.  Some areas will get almost no coupons while other areas get all of these.  You can see the differences for each week for papers across the south on Southern Savers.

I couldn’t resist this week and had to bold a few really great coupons!

    • Will the AJC have the 3 inserts this weekend???? Last week u posted: This Sunday, 3/21 you will have 3 inserts in your newspaper:
      (2) SmartSource
      (1) Redplum

      But AJC only had 1 of SS and 1 of RP. Did I get jipped or AJC just not get all 3???
      I'm new to couponing and it's only been my 2nd time buying the paper.
      Also do they sell the double newspapers every week or just every now and then??

      • Marina115

        The AJC only had 2 inserts last week. Different regions get diff. coupons and coupon values. It all depends on where you are and what newspaper you get. Unfortunately, we can't predict exactly what we're gonna get. Also, you should be able to get a double newspaper every week but some stores run out pretty quickly. Especially if they didn't get a lot to begin with. Many drugstore get only a few, so you would have to get them first thing in the morning. Also, in my area, grocery stores and walmarts will usually run out of the doubles by noon.

        • donnar

          And if you have the people who stand on the corner on Saturday mornings (we do in Hiram), you can get the papers w/coupons for $1 each (vs a double stack on Sundays at the grocery stores for $3 + tax.

          • Ruby10

            does anyone know if the AJC is available in greenville, SC?

          • WynetteC

            Wow that's nice and convenient, maybe they will migrate to Carrollton. I would be sure to make my rounds if that were the case. Only thing that you might miss out on is the variation in the Parade Magazine (early vs. late print). I have noticed that usually one or the other has coupons in it, but rarely both.

      • Suemh

        In my paper, Greenville News, the second SmartSource was was for toys and was stuck inside the regular SmartSource.

      • Barb

        I am in Knoxville and we only got one of each. Still a good haul for me.

      • peaches27es

        Yes I purchased the early edition (2) SS & 1 RP

    • F.Johnson

      No P&G this week? It states under the 2010 Coupon insert link it would be out this week.

      • Yacoomba

        I thought I saw that somewhere also about P & G being in this issue as well; I guess we'll wait on Jenny to see what she says. I think the batch I have now expire at the end of April; I have two sets that expire this month though (they were all the really good ones).

      • Suzanne

        Jenny said that they moved it to April 4th instead…I don't think any of their dates are set in stone.

    • RebeccaFer

      I just looked at the Variations that are posted for the Charlotte Observer and I can't help but notice we don't have any mention of the “$3 off Snuggle Fabric Softener Liquid 32 ld + or Dryer Sheets, 70 ct + (exp 5/2)” coupon. Is this just something that was missed or are we actually not going to get it? I still have quite a bit left from the last time but it will run out sooner or later and I'd love to stock up when the opportunity comes up! Thanks for all you do Jenny! :D

      • Suemh

        The variations that Jenny has listed are from last week's inserts. Variation lists can not be done until after the papers come out.

      • Barb

        If you are interested in a large number of them, I purchased some yesterday from eBay. I paid a lower price before the popularity became apparent and seller started raising prices. However, there are many who accept best offer and I have seen many of them accept as low as $4.00 for 20 coupons. Considering that represents a savings of $60 and likely no out-of-pocket at the store, it's a pretty good deal. The prices may go lower as it seems the sellers have gotten hold of a huge amount of these coupons.

        I just don't care to buy more than one or two papers this week and it has been a while since they coupon was out last.

        • Suemh

          I'm curious. How do ebay sellers have the coupons to sell before the paper comes out? Do they somehow get them in a paper earlier in the week?

          • Barb

            The way I understand it there are cities where these coupons come out in the middle of the week.

            Or, they may have a source. Most big sellers on eBay of anything have an inventory source.

        • RebeccaFer

          Thanks Barb and Suemh. :D I'm curious like Suemh asked too, how do they get them (and so many) early? Hmmmmm.

    • Erin

      Thanks for posting these reminders about which inserts are coming. I've been shorted before, so it's nice to have this in the back of my mind when the paper arrives.

    • I don't get too excited about those lists, because I only get about 1/4 of them. This week, we only got 2 inserts, so I suspect we'll only get the main 2 this week as well. I may see what coupons my MIL gets in her region though. She lives in So. Illinois and I'm in central-Eastern KY. Not sure if that would make much of a difference.

    • carolyn090

      wow ! i hope the fla times gets the stayfree, and carefree coupons.i misses out on the rite aid b1g1 sale a while back. if so plan to get a bunch of them .and stock up before the stayfree and carefree expire on the 3/31. also the cough drops will be cheep too! w/ b1g1 coupon a few weeks back

    • I am wondering if I need to plan a trip to Harris Teeter on Sunday after getting the paper.. Does anyone know of a list that will based on the coupons we are suppose to get.

      I live in a small town with no sunday paper so we get coupons on Saturday. The paper is also just 0.50 but most extra copies are sold out by lunch on Saturday.

    • Shirley

      Have you ever considered listing the product name first ad then the discount amount at the end? I always copy and paste your list to excel so that I can reference several ads on the same worksheet, but if you would write the product name at the front, I could sort by brand name and it would make my coupon organization so much easier. Thands

    • Joyce K

      It was proably a mistake but I bought 2 AJC and had a P&G this past weekend along with 2 other inserts but no toy coupons.

    • Chris

      Just wondering if any of you veteran couponers can help me with an insert question. Do brands (or parents companies) always put their coupons in one or the other insert? For example-if I am looking for a coupon for a Betty Crocker product, is it always going to be in a red plum insert because Betty Crocker stuff always is? Or does it just depend on the week? Jenny's lists are awesome, but sometimes I need something not on sale, but still would like to use a Q and knowing if I should pay attention to which insert certain things appear in would really help a lot.

      Also, because the Q's are regional, does that mean if I generally don't get a Q for a certain type of item that I probably never will (unless the status of the paper changes). For example, I haven't had the stayfree/carefree coupons lately, so can I assume that next time they come out that I won't have any? I get frustrated when I get all excited about making my shopping lists, only to find that a lot of the Q's were regional and I am missing out on some of the best deals. Thanks for any info you can pass on!

      • Anonymous

        I think if you go to these websites, they might help in searcing the item and pulling it out for you with the insert name/date etc.




        However, they seem to be user generated and not something official. I did a test run and did not find a Q. that I had in my hand in my region, in those databases. That means they are just not 100% reliable. At the same time, doing search on more than one website might give you reliable information.

    • Mysterious_Mentalist

      Does anyone know if there is a preview available for nest week P&G? In other words, do we already know in advance what is coming a week from now? I see that these lists come up on Thursdays or so; but I need to know now if, lets say, Covergirl Qs are in P&G next week. How do I find out?

    • Suemh

      I am very disappointed that the Greenville News did not have the Lysol No-Touch coupon. Did have Snuggle, Stayfree, and several other good ones!

    • shay

      Well I was pretty sad when I got my 4 papers this morning and didnt get SS#1 but then when I went to pull out the inserts I realized that I got 2 extra copies of SS#2 somehow. Which is awesome since that one has way more Qs!

    • Shanna

      I just bought two copies of the Post & Courier, and there was only ONE insert (RedPlum) this week – No SmartSource at all!

      Is there a possibility of the inserts varying from different distribution areas of the same paper? The P&C is a statewide paper, with editorial content sections tailored to local audiences, so I wouldn't be surprised if folks in the upstate get different (or fewer) Qs than the metro area of Charleston. However, would papers in North Charleston or Summerville have different inserts than the papers in say, downtown Charleston or Mt. Pleasant?

      When Jamie or whoever does the insert variation list for the Post & Courier, I would like to know where she buys the paper. I've been buying mine in N. Charleston or Summerville for the past month, and the lists did very little for me as I referred to them during my Harris Teeter (West Ashley) shopping trip last week; time and again I couldn't find the coupons. I am sure I am reading the lists and variations correctly; I double-checked all potential areas of human error on my part.

      Any input anyone could offer is appreciated. I'm really enjoying couponing, and would like to find an organizing system that works a little better for me.


      • Kelly

        I get the paper delivered to me in St. George. I had all three inserts, but no coupons for Carefree B1G1. I usually buy more papers from our local Piggly Wiggly, and the variations in the ones I bought and the one I had delivered are sometimes great. Also, the salespapers inserts are always different. For instance, I never get the Walgreens insert in my delivered paper, but if I buy it, it is always in there. Weird, and frustrating.

      • judahfour

        Shanna, you may need to contact the P&C. I recieved three papers today and all of them had 2 SS and 1RP. (I live in downtown chas) A co-worker bought hers from a gas station 2 weeks ago and was also missing some inserts. She called P&C and they mailed the missing inserts to her.

        • Shanna

          Great suggestion! I'll do that!
          Thanks, judahfour!

    • Columbia State newspaper only had 1 RP. I always check the papers before I get them to make sure that the right number of inserts are in them. So I only got 2 this week instead. But I did notice that I got the coupons I wanted! So that makes me happy :) Usually the coupons I'm after each week are missing from mine ;(

    • judahfour

      Did anyone get the Lysol no touch coupon in their insert? I live in Charleston SC and we didn't get it.

      • Chi

        North GA, I didn't get it either.

      • i';m in aiken and didn't get it either. bummer. i was really looking forward to trying it!

    • ereka

      no stayfree Q's on Columbia's sunday papers?

    • ziggy34434

      I purchased Citrus County Chronicle at Wags in Dunnellon, Florida. No inserts in 4 papers. I started buying them after the St. Pete Times stopped carrying SmartSource outside of Pinellas County. I could get the Ocala Star Banner, but the coupons are horrible. Anything good is always left out. I'm in Citrus Springs. If there is anyone who knows where I could get the Gainesville Sun or the Orlando Sentinal (provided they are including all inserts) without driving 30 miles that would be fantastic .
