Atlanta area readers:

Get a great deal on a subscription to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution today on Groupon.

For $39 you can get a 6 month subscription to the Sunday and Thursday paper or for $50 get Thursday thru Sunday papers every week!

In terms of couponing you really only need the Sunday/Thursday option.  This will get you all your insert coupons on Sunday and your Publix penny item coupon on Thursday.  As for savings, the Sunday paper is $2 normally so getting 26 weeks of the paper for $39 is already a savings of $13 plus you are getting a free Thursday paper now.

The Groupon is only good for the next two days. You have until November 17th to activate your subscription.  Limit 1 per household.

      I think if we subscribe here in N. GA, the paper comes with NO coupons, if they deliver at all.  Is this right?

      • kitkat

        where in N GA?  I’m in Rome and get the Sunday paper delivered and haven’t had a problem with not getting coupons.

        • kiki

          Good to hear kitkat! I’m in Rome too was wondering if the no coupons applied for us too!

    • I live in Barrow county and that is not one of the counties they service. Here’s a list of the counties this groupon applies to:





















      • Twoods117

        It said Bartow County when i clicked on the service area. 

        • Twoods117

          Sorry, you said Barrow, not Bartow.

      Considering the double issues are now $3.50, $1.63 per week for Thur/Sun is pretty good. AJC has offered the same deal for $1.50, but it was before the price hike. I’m signing up to avoid the run on Sundays. Also, get 3% back through ebates!

    • dirtsurfer

      AJC is $4 for me in Blairsville!

    • Candice

      We are on the outskirts of Atlanta and the Atlanta-Journal will mail their paper out here but it does not include circulars or coupons.  Just wanted people to know before they sign up. 

    • Naomi

      I thought the penny item coupon was in the Wednesday paper.  Is there anyone that can confirm in the Atlanta area which day it is in?  I will definately be ordering this deal for Sunday paper- much cheaper than buying each week in the store and delivered to my door!

        it’s thursday in the ajc and marietta paper

      • Alycewaldrop

        it is in the Thursday paper since the sale starts here on Thursdays

      • Columbus_Mom

        It depends on where you live.  In Columbus, our penny item is in the Wednesday paper. 

    • Creed248

      Somebody told me that they receive the Atlanta Journal in the Columbus area? Does anybody know this to be true?

      • Columbus_Mom

        I looked on their website to see their service area once, and they didn’t deliver here.  This is strange to me since you can get them in the grocery stores locally.  If you find out different, I’d sure like to know as well!

    • ebonycullars

      will the coupons be in the sat and sunday paper ?!
      Can they deliver to apartments ?

      • Yearofthecat1974

        They’ll deliver to apartments, but coupons will come in the Sunday paper.

    • Christine

      No ATL Journal delivered to Haralson County….bummer!

      • Oscar11

        I have to go Bremen Ingles every sunday before church to get the double papers. If not they are gone when I get there after church. I wish they delivered out to us.

    • becky

      yes–Can we use this to renew, or add on, to a current subscription?

    • JrCouponator

      Has anyone gone through the process and can confirm what happens to your current subscription of Sunday only?

      • Couponkelly75

        Yes, when your current subscription of Sunday only papers runs out, then the Sunday/Thursday subscription will start.  I did this last time going Sunday/Thursday to Sunday only and it worked fine.   

        • JrCouponator

          Thank you! Thank you!

    • Kat in Columbus

      Does anyone know if the coupons in that paper are the same ones in  the Columbus, Ga paper?

    • Sharon Shelley

      Does anyone know when papers are delivered to the stores in Conyers, GA on Saturdays?
