    • Lynn Mccrady

      Woo Hoo.  I am so ready.  Bring on the papers!

      • Irresistable75

        Lynn McCrady, me too, girly, me too!!!

        • Pat

          What products are you so excited about? Looks like the same ole same ole to me.

          • Mommy2Boys

            Yes, but a lot of our 'same ole same oles' expired on the 31st so this batch is replenishing our coupons stashes!!!  :)

            • Efranks41

              Yes, and some seem to be a little better in value!  That IS exciting!!

            • Roma282

              question . how do you get the best out of 50 cents off of two items when the item is 1.00

    • Sydranicole

      I was having withdrawals last week! I'm so excited for Sunday to get here!

      • I took this week to reorganize my coupons. I went from a clipless system to a binder because I got sick of not knowing what I had!

        • Caroline

          That's my plan for the summer!

    • Breezymom247_2

      Thank you for posting!!

    • I cannot wait this will be my first official week of couponing!  I feel like I got slighted this past Sunday lol

    • Christy

      So ready for Saturday!  I feel like I've been in withdrawl this past week!  Tons of great coupons!!!

      • Savingsmartshopper

        Me too!!

    • Rachelho822

      I am going to buy 10 newspapers on sunday.

      • FreedomSpradley1

        Ask friends, co-workers, etc. to see if they will save their inserts for you before buying 10 papers.  Around here a Sunday paper runs $2 so buying 10 really isn't a viable option.

        • In the Atlanta area, we have “hawkers” who sell the Sunday paper on Saturday.  They sell it for $1, and it comes complete with coupon inserts.  Outside of the Atlanta area, I get double editions of the AJC for $3 on Sunday morning.  These include 2 copies of each insert.  I also have the paper delivered for $1.50.  It's definitely not viable to buy 20 papers at $2, but it might be viable to buy 6 at $1 if you can find a hawker.  My husband usually buys 3 doubles for $9 at Kroger or Wal-Mart on Sunday morning before church.

          • Christen Cook2010

            Same here Jessica. We live in Dacula so we don't have hawkers, but we go to publix and buy 3 sets of the $3 double paper and get 6 of each insert! I love it!

            • stacey

              I live in lawrenceville, how do you know if they are doubled papers?

            • Jenny L

              Doubled papers are wrapped together with a blueish thing, and it will say double on it.

            • faithweaver

              Our Publix Here in Columbus, Ga sells Sunday paper in double bundles for $2.00. I usually buy2 to 3 sets depending in how many inserts and for $1.00 each you can't go wrong.

          • Melissa

            Where can I find a “hawker”? I can go to Publix on hwy 20 which is in Mcdonough so a little further wouldn't be bad I just need to know where to look.

      • Ssteasley04

        I go to the trash dumpster and they have a huge seperate bin for newspapers and thats how i get my coupons. Why pay for them when you can get them free :)

        • Eagercouponer

          What trash dumpster? I don't know of a certain trash dumpster that has a separate newspaper bin. I would gladly visit a dumpster! :)

    • Ledbetterlerleen

      The .75 cent Colgate coupon can be used on a $1.00 tube of ultrabrite. It's always a buck at Dollar General or Family Dollar, just a tip.

    • Nicibarber

      I NEED a great pampers matchup for this weeks coupons.  Any ideas??

      • emily rose

        If you have a CVS, you get $2 RR back for a jumbo size pampers 40 diapers in the size 1.  The list price is 8.99, so I used a $5 off man.coupon plus $2 RR made them $1.99!  Not sure the value of the coupons you have, but this might be a decent deal.  It is good through Saturday 6/4.

        • Lori Bradley

          thanks for the tip emily rose! where did you find your $5.00 off manufacturer coupon?

    • Melanie

      WOO HOO!! I will definitly be recycle bin diving this week….lol :)

      • Thechainbreaker

        Lol! Is that legal! My friend does it but I was concerned. If so, I may do it, too! lol

        • Melanie

          Its no different than trash digging…we have individual recycle bins we put at the curb just like trash cans…i figure the worst someone can do is asking me not to take theirs…lol  wich hasnt happened yet!!! Good Luck on your coupon hunt :)

    • Thylace22

      thanks you
      No coupons for me this month 

      • Mommy2Boys


    • Guest

      What are the expiration dates?

      • Efranks41

        This is Jenny's heads-up on the Sunday inserts to start your shopping plans. You will have to wait for the actual inserts to get the expiration dates. Most of them are good at least 3 months, some longer. The P&G usually are good for that month, with a few coupons maybe extending 2 months out. Hope this helps.

    • Rainbozbra

      I got a Family Dollar paper in the mail today. It has a coupon for buy 2 Homel Completes and get 3rd one for 1 cent. You can stack coupons at Family Dollar.

    • discouraged

      oh great – now the shelves will be empty of papers again – never got any last big day … cried on the way home….  saw same old coupon people at gas stations wanting even more and not even one for me – cannot afford subscription- ho

    • cahugh4

        How do you get the SS in the mail on Tuesday/ Wedneday? I live in Memphis. Does anyone have suggestions for my area other than buying multiple newspapers and searching the recycling bins for inserts?

        • FreedomSpradley1

          Ask co-workers, church members, friends and family, etc. to save their inserts for you.  You would be surprised how many will help you.

        • Mommy2Boys

          I got the Redplum and P&G on Wednesday as well.  Not sure why I always get double, but I'm not complaining!!

        • Georgianurse

          georgianurse@att.net.  PUT WANT COUPONS IN THE SUBJECT BAR SO I DO NOT DELETE IT.

    • PTL

      Really disappointed in the value of coupons these days – use to be $1/1, etc. and how the price of food has skyrocketed.  Last year, I could spend $40 and save $160, now it's the other way around. I think I've only bought Sunday newspapers twice this year, as the online printables are usually a higher value, and I'm able to purchase enough food w/these rather than buying 10 newspapers. I have enough cookies, crackers, and cereal to last me a good while. I'm back to shopping at several stores to get the best deals, instead of all at Publix – their prices are so high.

      • Ketta

        I usually get 2 or 3 Sunday papers and then use any and all coupons that are printable.  My shopping is Publix and though their normal prices are high, the sale prices cannot be beat.  Yes stocking up is good but if you just shop sales at Publix with coupons from both the paper and the printables you will save a bundle.  Don't be too discouraged.  Just e thankful there are coupons at all and that Publix doubles most.

        • PTL

          My Publix doesn't double. However, what I'm discouraged about is that the coupon values are declining and the food prices are soaring. There is no getting around that.

    • Johnldeansr

      I would really appreciate those coupons as I have two toddlers and they really no how to go thru diapers. I am brand new at this couponing thing but it looks like it could really help. thanks

    • dolly

      can you order/buy the ss and rp inserts on line so that you dont have to buy the paper?

      • Pamwil88

        I use a site call wholecouponinserts.com.  You purchase the inserts instead of the entire paper and the inserts are very reasonable….probably like .50 per inserts.  I buy ten eevry week.

        • Kimbervett

          I have tried to order from them and I cant seem to figure out how to order them!  Do I have to email them to get set up on autoship? Please HELP..lol

        • Karenpennington84

          How do you do it? just went on the site and can't order anything other than the McDonald coupons

      • Pamwil88

        I use a site call wholecouponinserts.com.  You purchase the inserts instead of the entire paper and the inserts are very reasonable….probably like .50 per inserts.  I buy ten eevry week.

      • Pelzercrook

        where do you buy the inserts from??

      • Pattcoupons

        I sell inserts, send me an email pattcoupons@gmail.com.

      • Kelly K.

        you can always check your local craigslist, some people post full inserts on there for as little as 50 cents.

    • Cestaggs

      I'm looking to help a football team where I coach and any help would be greatly appreciated.  I’m looking to get large amounts of Gatorade or Powerade.  I’m also looking to get large amounts of hygiene products (bodywash, deodorant, etc….).  If anyone can shed some light on the best way to do this it would be very helpful to someone that has never done this “Couponing” thing.

      • Amy L.

        Jenny does an awesome job with CVS, Riteaid and Walgreens matching coupons to awesome sales at these typically overpriced stores!  With ECB's at CVS, Up $ at Riteaid and RR at Walgreens – she shows you weekly how to roll these dollars to make the most of your spendable budget!  I have a huge tub of hygiene and toiletry items that I am able to donate from on a regular basis!  Have you reviewed the drug store lists?

      • Guest

        what area are you from? I am always more than happy to help out in my area by researching and finding the best deals.

            Hi there, I'm in Simpsonville, SC and I teach an Extreme Couponing class for beginners that will help you figure out how to get great deals for your team.  My next class is Saturday, 6/18 from 9-11:30AM.  E-mail me if you're interested: housewifesc@gmail.com

    • Bamagirl43

      Cestaggs, I think a good start would be to ask the team members to bring in the coupon inserts from the Sunday paper if their families do not use them.  To encourage this idea, maybe offer a reward to those that bring them in (run 1 less lap, etc.). I see in the list above their will be B1G1 on Gillette Body Wash.  Walgreen's will almost always offer a B1G1 on this product.  This means you get both free!  You will have to be at the store when the doors open to get these.  Also, I see Old Spice buy Body Wash get deodorant free and the $1/2 Old Spice product. The way to do this is to get 2 washes and 2 deodorants, use (2)  Buy Wash get Deodorant Free Qs, and (1) $1/2 Old Spice Q for the 2 Body Washes.  I think the drugstores are the way to go when getting personal items. As far as the powerade, gatorade, watch the sales at the stores in your area.  There are always good deals to be had.

      • Cestaggs

        Thanks for the help.  I think I go it we will see….lol!

    • Clemsonbabe4

      I'm already figuring out what coupons I can stack to go along with these. I think I may buy more than just one of this weeks paper.

      • ruda

        How do you stack coupons?

      • Meesh

        are you in the charleston area? i need couponing friends over here!

    • GA Girl

      I will mail q's to you this week.

    • Cindy

      just curious.. Do any of the Sunday papers have coupons in them. you know, USA TOday, etc?

      • Emily

        It is always good to check the USA Today section. A couple of papers ago they had a Free Strawberry Lemonade from McDonalds/$1 off smoothie/frappe. You never know!

    • booloomom

      Does anyone from the Athens area know if the Atlanta Journal and Athens Banner Herald have the same coupons?  Just wondering if I need to buy both.

      • Kelliemerola

        The athens insert has no where near as many as the AJC, I wouldnt waste my money on ABH!!!

        • MP

          I'm in Ringgold, Ga. Where can I get an AJC?

          • Freebie gal

            You would have to travel south on I75 to probably get the AJC…Flying J at exit 320 still has Chattanooga papers so you would have to go south of that exit.

            The closest place to buy the AJC is Cartersville, GA.  They don't deliver anywhere up here.  I work in Ringgold and live in Tunnel Hill.  I think you can get a Sunday only subscription for $1.47, I think.

        • Booloomom

          Thanks Kellie. I get the ABH from mom but didn't know if it was worth buying AJC too.

      • Bakersdz301

        I always do my homework and check this website for the coupon inserts for each Sunday.  I have found that the ABH always has them, so I know longer purchase the AJC.  Hope this is helpful.

      • Asolstice06

        I live in Jefferson. I buy the AJC because although the ABH may have similar coupons, they ARE NOT the same and ARE NOT nearly as good of coupons as the AJC. I know this from painful experience. :)

      • Jenny

        I buy the AJC (I believe I find it at Publix…for a while I couldn't find it at all). I know a few times ABH didn't include all of the books or whatnot. Also does anyone know where to get coupons in bulk in Athens area? Such as a recycling place where unused papers go?

      • Joy

        Most places in Athens don't have the AJC with the coupons in them last June they pretty much stopped carry them. I have a small group of 15 women that we order from a friend of mine who lives in Atlanta she then in turn buys the papers and sends us the inserts and eanything else that is good for us. If you are interested injoining you can can email me at joysdachshunds@yahoo.com for more details. This has worked for us and it continues to grow. Let me know if you have any questions.

        • Freebie gal

          If you will go one town over to Jefferson, or Braselton, you can get the AJC.  I like both papers equally but some of the circulars in Athens benefit me more because I'm closer to there.

      • Freebie gal

        I have bought both and they usually are the same at least for me. I always look through the paper first to make sure all inserts are in it, because I think some people will grab inserts from one paper and stuff in the one they buy to double the coupons….I learned the hard way to start looking before I buy.  I hope that helps. :)

      • I get the AJC and a spanish newspaper. The AJC always, always has better coupons, but sometimes the spanish paper will have a few the AJC doesn't, especially on mexican food. My AJC didn't have the taco bell dinner kits, but my spanish paper did.

    • Rachel

      If anyone would be kind enough to send me their unused inserts or coupons (for anything at all) I would be greatly appreciative…I'm happy to trade coupons, too! Email me at rstelze@gmail.com!

    • stacey

      Hey Mommys, keep a look olut for this deal at publix. Every once in a a while publix will have a coupon thats 3$ off two or more Johnson and JOhnsonucts. Combine that with two manufacture coupons (usually they are 50 cents a pice but publix now doubles) that will be 5 dollars off if you buy two! It makes each bottle about 84 cents!!!!! I try to get more then one 3$ off and do seperate transactions to get the 84 cent deal. Great deal and great even if you dont have kids for baby shower gifts.

      • DonnaChas

        Hey Stacy, we don't have any children, but I do love to find a great deal for the next baby shower gift that I can put in my “gift closet”~  I LOVE to keep my “gift closet” stocked!

        Could you please explain what “bottle”  you are referring to?   I'm a little confused.  Please help.

        Thanks so much!

        • KelliS

          Hi Donna, I'm a mom.  I think Stacy is referring to the J&J baby 'body' products.  My favorites are the yellow bottles (it's fragrance free and gets good ratings from EWG) and the purple bottles which are lavendar scented for aromatherapy at bedtime.  J&J sells body wash and lotions in both lines.  They do make great shower gifts!  Hope that helps!

      • Thechainbreaker

        I just got this deal! I got 2 bottles of baby oil for my girls to tan with and I only paid  $0.91 each (original price $3.41 each). The baby shampoo is even less, so someone else can get a better deal! Some of the Johnson & Johnson products even had $1 coupons on them (@ Publix in Dallas, GA). Another idea, too; In the card section Publix has $2 off coupons for any 3 Hallmark items. You can buy 3 twenty-five cent (.25) Hallmark lunch size bags and use the overage toward your purchase. Happy shopping! :)

      Anyone know of a guy that sales Sunday papers for $1 in Gwinnett?? I cant find him!

      • kp

        I never see anybody in Gwinnett. I usually see them in Dekalb

    • Bigredsue

      Just Remember you can always go to the DollarTree and get the Sunday Paper for $1.

      • dd

        didn't know that….thanks.

      • Lynn

        That's assuming your Dollar Tree sells the Sunday paper.  We have 3 Dollar Trees and none of them sell it.

      • Hhinteriors

        Not all DollarTrees carry the Sunday paper, however!

    • ruda

      Hello. I am a newbie and of course trying to familiarize myself with coupons and how to use them effectively. I am from around Clarksville, TN and hoping to see if there is another way or another store besides Walgreens (Sunday newspaper) that I can get more coupons. I also wanted to see if there is somebody around this area too that I can get together with to learn how to do this. I have been clipping my coupons and I already have a binder but I am not familiar with how to use them effectively and at which stores. Thanks!

      • Ashleyann0726

        I live in clarksville Tn. email me @ ashleyann0726@yahoo.com I have been doing it for years.

      • I live in Clarksville as well and I started getting the Sunday paper at Dollar Tree. So much cheaper than a newspaper subscription! :)

        • Ashleyann0726

          Does the dollar tree on ft. campbell have the newspaper with all the coupons?

      • Autumn

        Coupon Software is at http://www.laurieanns.com

      • Tlynnehoney

        Hi there, I'm in the same area,  the learn to coupon tab above helps and I ordered also got a lot of info from “living in abundance couponing” just google it to get there!

      • Mstweety

        Can't you order more sunday issues from your paper company.  That's what we do.  They are cheaper and are delivered.

    • Joannenance

      Does anyone know where to get 1 dollar Sunday papers in Rockmart/ Dallas area??

      • Echilde2

        I buy them at the intersection of 61 and mulberry rock road.  They also have them in Hiram at the 4 way behind Home Depot.

        • Thechainbreaker

          Are they $1 @ 61 & Mulberry Rock? If so, do you get them from an individual or a store? When do become available, Saturday?

      • Thechainbreaker

        I buy them for $1 from a guy that sells them behind Wendy's in Hiram, on 278.

    • nola

      I live in New Orleans, I started couponing about two months ago. Does anyone have any advice for the New Orleans area?

      • Jmdmedic

        I am in Gonzales, the Dollar Tree's sell the sunday paper for only $1.00 if you are looking to buy multiples and they do not have a limit

    • Kristen

      anyone from columbus ga area? i was wondering which paper is best to get the coupons from? and any tips as to what store are best to use… thank you all tips would be greatly appreciated,

      • Rjbabygirl

        I live in Valley/Lanett area….I buy the Columbus Ledger for my coupons……Plus an Atlanta Journal Constitution if I can find one.

        • Kinkyheadedgal

          where do you find the Atlanta paper? I live in Auburn and can't find anyone who caries it.

          • MimiD

            We can't find a AJC anywhere either.  I live in Maysville & you can buy as many papers as you want anywhere around here…but AJC….can't find one of them anywhere within  30 mile radius!

            • Jen_brown

              I was just at the Publix on Macon Rd. off of I-185 today and they carry the AJC.  They had racks of them today!!

      • Danielle Pattillo

        i live in pine mountain and me and my mother get a columbus, atlanta and a lagrange paper.

    • lpip

      I have a question for you, I'm new at couponing.  I have a coupon for 75 cents for
      degree deordorant.  Beside the coupon, it says, FREE Degree with a purchase of
      any Degree Deordorant.  Harris Teeter told me, that was not a coupan, its only good
      for 75 cents.  This is correct?

      • brandy ricks

        no you buy one and get one at cost for free at equal or lesser cost.  and the 75 cents off works on both the full size and the travel size.

      • Meesh

        harris teeter also doubles coupons $0.99 or less (i'm pretty sure) so that .75 would double to 1.50 off

    • Jennifer

      Anyone from Upstate SC who would like to stay in contact about deals we find. I have no coupon friends locally to talk with about coupons. If so, maybe we could email about Couponing Any help would be appreciated.

    • Two weekends ago I went to Walgreens to buy some papers.  Since I knew that there were going to be coupons in there that would basically make up for the cost of the paper, I went in to buy 6.  Walgreens would only sell me three.  The lady at the counter said she didn't know why “you people” do the coupons anyway, and that she couldn't sell me more because other people would want the paper.  She made me wait in line while she called the manager over and we had a line of about six people behind me. The whole time she was huffing and scowling about how I really shouldn't be trying to buy so many anyway.  I understand that there can be limited quantities on a certain, but I didn't understand her attitude.  

      Before my programming job I worked in retail for ten years and I would have never treated someone like that.  She could have told me politely that there was a paper limitation due to their policy.  Needless to say I was very disappointed in their customer service and when my father-in-law called back to speak to the manager about the cashier's behavior the manager reassured him that I could come back in and buy more papers.Sad to say, even though it is less than two minutes from my house, I will never shop at that specific one again.  The funny part of this story is that I ended up going to Harris Teeter later that day to do my grocery shopping and bought three more there.  When I got home I realized that the ones at Harris Teeter had two more inserts a piece in them than the ones that I got all Walgreens so in the end it worked out better for me.The moral of this rant?  Even if you have to spend a little extra time looking through the paper to make sure it has what you want, it is worth it.  Also, to retailers out there, couponers are people too. :)  We are not out to make cashiers miserable, simply out to save our families some money,

      • MonicaFL

        Unfortunately I am running more and more into this.  And yes I have had both CVS and Walgreens refuse to sell me more than 3 papers.  I think this has gotten worse since the shows about extreme couponers.   Do you have a Publix?  They have plenty of papers and we have never had trouble buying 10 if need be from there…

      • Christa

        I think anyone who
         has worked in retail and tried to give good customer service would toally feel your pain! Even when a customer would give me a hard time I was still polite and treated them with respect. You didn't  do anything wrong and she was very rude to you!

      • Rachel

        That is why I profile when choosing a checkout line.  I know at a Walgreens there may only be one cashier but if I'm at a supermarket where multiple checkout lanes are open I steer clear of the one with a middle aged woman cashier.  I normally go to the one with teenage or 20 something cashier or any aged man.  It is sad but true.  And it's not just at stores.  I had a bad experience at a fast food restaurant once and sent an e-mail to the company.  A couple weeks later I got a card from the store manager with a coupon for a free breakfast item.  I took the coupon, card and envelope to the restaurant to use.  The cashier who was a woman who appeared to be in her upper 50s.  I gave her the coupon, showed her the address on the envelope and the name on the card (the store manager's) and she STILL went to get the manager to get approval.  I'm not prejudiced against any race, sex or religion but unfortunately I have to pick and choose cashiers at stores.  Christina, I would definitely e-mail Walgreens and complain .  Cashiers are paid to ring up purchases and take coupons.  There is no reason for the attitude.

      • Meshell

        You know, you guys make me feel better. I thought I was the only one that got “those looks” from cashiers. I swear they act like you are trying to steal from them. I think it boils down to jealousy. We are saving money and they can't, or mostly likely won't try to do the same thing. I feel like I am being made fun of! One cashier made me feel better. She asked me where I got coupons because she was interested in it!!!!

        I go to Fred's just about every Saturday. They advertise double coupons (up to 70 cents) on Saturdays only. The only thing is, their system seems limited to one or two of the same product.

        The past few times I've bought more than one product, it would double the first two coupons, then stop. And I'm only talking about 4 or 5 of the same time, not dozens. When I complained about it, the manager said to me “Fred's must have some arrangement with Proctor and Gamer's (no kidding, she said that) so that they don't double coupons. She finally told me there was nothing she could do. I left what I was going to buy at the store.

        I got to thinking about it and I called back. I asked them if they would try each item as a separate transaction. The cashier said sure, to come on and they'd try it. Sure enough, it worked. But today when I went in, I had to argue again. I decided today it's just not worth dealing with them. I end up angry and frustrated.. So I'm going to Publix, and they double and you don't have to tell them how to do it! lol or Walgreens or CVS or Rite Aid where they at least have some sort of policy that makes sense.

        • Bridgett

          The coupon policy posted in our local Fred's states that they will only double one like coupon and duplicates will be processed at face value.

      • gadawgs

        Walgreens is alway horrible. They no longer get ANY of my business!!!

      • Mamato6chicks

        Our corner Walgreens was limiting to 2 papers/customer.  The manager made this rule out of the blue.  Most of the people that came in to buy the paper did so for the coupons.  Well, long story short he ended up being stuck with stacks of papers every week  b/c of his limit. People were going elsewhere to buy papers. In the long run he hurt his store's sales.  I had to chuckle when a couple months later there was suddenly no limit anymore.  I understand a reasonable limit but I thought this was silly.

        • Preachermandan

          Actually, he hurt his sales along with the newspaper carrier.  I carried papers for several years while I went back to college.  The carrier has to pay for each paper at a reduced cost (profit margin isn't that great) and then sell the paper.  As a carrier, I would have said, first come, first serve…Early Bird gets the worm…etc, etc. 
          They shouldn't be allowed to limit the amounts of papers purchased by any one customer.  If they want to pay for each, let them pay.  More money for the carriers.  The papers which aren't sold, are typically sold back to the newspaper company (at an even further reduced rate) which allows to recover some of the cost but not all.

    • @Christina, that would have made me so angry that I would have contacted the Walgreens corporation about the employee's behavior. There is no reason for a cashier at any business to act in that manor. And I have been a cashier before and in customer service. If it was not for customers, they would not have a job. I had a lady at Walgreens last weekend try and make me feel stupid because their store paper had a coupon for Northern Tissue, which I was not aware of, but the sign on the display clearly advertised it for $3.99 and no mention of the coupon. I bought 2 packs but did not catch the error until I had already checked out in the pharmacy. I stopped up front on the way out and had them fix the error. She was so rude and made it a point to let me know that the price was with the store coupon and I was not rude to her at all. They should always mark all signs 'With Coupon'. There are much more polite ways to let people know why something rang up wrong.

    • Valorie Young

      How come on things like Tide where you really need to save do they only give you a .35 coupon.  Even doubled it's only .70 cents.  I know a savings is a savings but why not .50 that could double and be a buck.  That just bothers me and makes P&G look a little stingy.

      • CSK

        I think the exact same thing every time I see that coupon!!! The least they could do would be a $1 coupon on such an expensive product….hell…Whisk keeps putting out those $2 off coupons! My laundry stockpile consists of Arm&Hammer, Purex, and Whisk.

        • Ppunkc

          if u go somewhere like foodlion they will take the $3 off tide stain remover for regular tide i did that the other week

          • Please don't tell other people ways to commit coupon fraud. This will hurt everyone whop uses coupons in the long run. If you're going to break the law, please keep it to  yourself.

    • Rmericesl

      Hi All!
      I am visiting my parents in SC and will be driving home to TN tomorrow (Sunday).  I will be going through Atlanta and would like to pick up some papers.  I will be on I-20 west, the 285 by-pass, then I-75 north all in and around Atlanta.  Does anyone have any suggestions on a quick place to pick up some papers and which to pick up near those highways?  Also, I will have my dog with me and I refuse to leave him in the car, so a gas station would be ideal, they usually don't mind when I take him in with me.

      • Aljonzee

        in atl you will find street vendors that sell sundays paper for one dollar look for busy intersections by shopping centers and have money ready tell the vendor how many to have ready and circle around with proper change for quick exchange, usually around an exit ramp or entrance ramp.  HTH

      • Melissa

        On 1-20 W you can stop in Conyers at the Salem Rd. exit. There are several gas stations around. QuickTrip is the best. It would be to your left then on the left a little ways down. It would be much better to stop somewhere on I-20 before you get into Atlanta.

      • Angie8220

        The only place I know is off of campbleton which is off the 166 and the 285 by the Greenbriar mall (just mapquest or gps). Now this area a bit urban so if you dont have a problem with that then this is a great place to get papers and the guy is really nice and the coupons are always in the paper

      • Cecelialorraine

        Kroger 285 Atlanta Rd Turn Right off interstate and Kroger will be on the Left
        Publix 285 Paces Ferry Turn Right off of the interstate.  Publix will be on the right There is a Rite Aid across the street that you could also go to.
        Publix 75 North approx 20 minutes from when you get on 75 Barret Parkway. Turn Right.  It is on the left when you see Barnes and Noble

        I have never seen any papers at any gas stations

      • Sewingmom2

        All convenience store should have the paper bundles which is 2 papers for $3.00.  I get mine at the BP station at the top of my street.

        • Only really early in the mornings, most the time. When they run out, the stores will out out the single $2 copies. The $3 bundle is Saturday and Sunday together and they sell out really fast in my area.

    • Crbroy52

      where can i get just the coupons from the paper . if possible…xoxox

      • Meshell

        There are sites that sell the inserts. I just can't remember the name of the site(s). Sorry! As a matter of fact, I was looking into it just last week. They sell clipped coupons, as well as whole inserts. Even back several weeks. They tell you what is in which insert. When I remember the name, I will tell you. Sorry!

      So I got the Sunday newspaper today this morning, and I had no Procter and Gamble coupon inserts but I did have the other 2 inserts, any ideas why? Was it because it was Saturday??

      • I almost missed mine because it looked different than normal, check again!

    • Heather

      hello, I am new to couponing and was wondering if there was anyone in Chattanooga,tn or close by that could teach me the ropes ….thanks

      • Angeline4483

        @Heather, what do you feel you have questions  about?

    • Kelliemerola

      I purchased an early edition of the AJC tonight which had all 3 inserts but when comparing to the list there were more than usual missing. Are there more coupons in the Sunday edition? Don't want to make the same mistake twice!!

      • No, they're the same, but there are regional differences.

        • Cherylbradbury

          I know there are regional differences but I got the regular edition (different from the early) at a store less than 5 miles away, which wouldn't fall into a regional difference.  From the AJC rep I spoke to about it, it appears that for some reason all early edition inserts were put into the double packs in my area (she actually had another compliant).  She said I said have had 1 of each since it was a double.  I got the early edition today to “test” out the explanation and actually talked to the guy at the gas station (who I always get the papers from) and he said if they are missing/different that I could bring them back and swap.

          • Kelliemerola

            So the AJC itself has regional differences? I did notice the insert said a lot of smaller papers on the side instead of AJC like it normally does. My normal gas station is not taking preorders any more and people come in and buy like 25 plus papers making it impossible to get!

      • Cherylbradbury

        I too did the same thing.  I think it is because it is the early edition. For the 5/22 coupons I bought the double pack and was missing ALOT of coupons and of course they were the higher value ones I wanted (Breyers, Ragu, Country Crock, Sweet Ray's BBQ, Energizer…all missing)!  Luckily, I was able to get copies of the regular edition inserts.  If I determine tomorrow that the regular edition has different inserts, I will go back to the gas station I purchased at (and use every week) to swap out the papers.

    • Jennifer

      I live near Orange Texas and was hoping to find someone to help me learn how to coupon. I feel totally overwhelmed. Don't know where to start. And CVS confuses me. If there is anyone in my area that knows how to coupon, please give me a shout.

    • Yum, coffee.

      The AJC I just picked up has Eight O'Clock coffee coupons! ($0.75 off 1 pack, and $2 off 2 packs) I'm excited as this is my favorite coffee and it seems like Publix has been putting it on sale BOGO roughly every 10 weeks.  It was on sale 4 weeks ago, so I'm hoping to be able to match these at the next sale before they expire.

        It seems like a lot of coupons are missing everywhere
        Live in San Benito Tx did not get all the good coupons

        • Juliana *

          Yeah it sucks :( I feel like I wasted money since I only cut a few coupons from the RP & none from the PG…

      • Erin

        I'm in Gainesville, Fl too and also did not have the SmartSource in either of my papers.  Went to two different gas stations just to check.  The checker at the second one told me before I even opened the paper to check that there were no Smartsource coupons in the Gainesville Sun today.  I don't know if the Ocala paper has them or not, as neither of the stores have those.

    • Allison Neal

      There were no red plum or P&G coupon booklets in my paper this morning and we checked all the papers at the convience store and the only coupon booklets were the smart source …..very disappointed…..It was  the Savannah Morning News

    • Trellscoupns

      I just picked up the pink bag that they deliver on Sundays and it had all of the coupons in it.  Is there an advantage to buying a newspaper?

    • Birgit Gilbert

      I am disappointed today. I bought six Greenville news, no A1 coupons, no French's Dijon mustard, no Tampax etc. All the one's I wanted most and bought the paper for.

      • Thriftycat

        Did you get the P&G insert?  My Greenville news was missing that whole insert.

        • Birgit Gilbert

          yes, at least I got the P&G insert. My Husband buy's the Newspaper for me before he goes golfing and brings them to me. He would not check if they are in there so I am glad that at least it was in there or I would have been more disappointed.

          Thanks Linda!  I did see those but really wanted some from paper so I could send to my parents since they use greenies for their dog too. Am limited to printing from one pc until I go back to work on the 27th

    • Gemmawade

      I live in hunstville and went to 2 different  locations for a paper and neither had a PG insert!

      • Vivmr9

        im in atlanta and neither did I??!!!

      • Gemmawade

        Are people taking them out?

        • Rubies20

          i opened some of the bundles at the store i go to and they werent in there either

      • Hensley Rtr

        My paper didn't have the PG insert either, also live in Huntsville. I wonder if its in the Decatur daily or Cullman Times

        • Rubies20

          its in the tennessean

    • Vivmr9


      • Shopping

        Got mine in the Marietta Daily Journal at a Kroger. Less than $1 for the paper with all 3 inserts. Seems to have all the coupons on the list.

    • Hensley Rtr

      Huntsville Times only had SS & Redplum, really wanted PG this week

      • Rubies20

        i checked about 10 at the store and they only had RP & SS

    • Chery

      very disapointed in the Red Plum and smart source this week,more than 3/4 of the coupons were not in the paper. Was really excited to see what was coming and then to only get 2 out of the whole insert, not impressed!!!!

    • Couponcutter1

      I'm sad this morning too!  SSand P&G were in my Anderson and Greenville papers but no RP!

    • tncoupon

      got up early this morning to go get 2 Tennessean's to find out after that they didn't have any of the inserts. no SS RP or P&G

      • Zeegirl84

        My tennessean had only the rp. Very dissapointing

      • Rubies20

        i got the tennesean from the store and i had to check them before i bought them some had all 3 some only had RP & SS

      • DGgirl09

        i got the tennessean & mine had all 3, and actually had 2 extra P&G's.

    • lisaf

      The chattanooga free press has all three inserts but the Knoxville only had two(P&G & Smart Source). After review the chattanooga paper is defiantly better.

    • Trob

      The Leaf Chronicle in Clarksville, TN has no P&G insert…just an fyi in case anyone else was wondering!

    • Kate

      So disappointed! The only insert in our paper today was smart source, and i was really looking forward to the P&G one.

    • danielle

      Anyone get the $2 Nivea coupon in their Orlando Sentinel?

      • Dustinfinuff

        I did not get it in the Tampa Tribune or St Pete Times.

      • Janac_345

        I didn't get it in mine either. :(

    • Ssdanegirl

      Why is that none of these coupons are in any paper that I looked through in Savannah GA? I really would have liked to get these.

    • Misty S

      The Birmingham News had 1 SS and the P&G. The Tuscaloosa News had all three inserts. Although the SS in the T news was different from the one in the Birmingham paper. FYI anyone that lives in the Northport area and went to Publix to get a Tuscaloosa News, there was nothing in their papers. No sales flyers or coupons.. The employees their are telling everyone that the paper no longer puts coupons in there and you can only get them by home delivery. Evidently someone is stealing the coupons from their papers because everywhere else in tuscaloosa county has the coupons. So don't go to publix to get your papers. Got mine at walmart in northport.

      • guest

        I have a friend that works at a newspaper (though not that one), but he reported that valassis/red plum were reducing the number of inserts that they were willing to put out and wanted them to go in the home delivery ones first.  They are reported to want to stop putting coupons in non-home delivery papers althogether to save expenses.

    • Lareeslott

      I live in Oak Ridge, TN and we only had red plum and P&G…no smart source :(

    • Margoren

      Hampton, Virginia (Daily Press). I went to 5 stores and all of them had only the P & G. My 3 home delivery papers had only the SmartSource insert. I emailed them about my home delivery papers and after several emails and letting them know how dissapointed I was, someone came to deliver 3 sets of the missing inserts (P & G and Redplum)
      By the way, one of the carriers called at some point to tell me that none of the papers this Sunday had coupon inserts just adds. When I told her mine did have the SS and that I knew which ones were supposed to be in the paper, she was like “well maybe I can check with the warehouse….”
      Thankfully the customer service person I was emailing took care of the issue.
      I am starting to think that the Extreme Couponing show is informing people that selling coupons online is profitable…
      Could it be that someone is stealing all those inserts to sell them?

      • MistyS

        That is what I think is happening myself. I have seen people that work for the paper and even stores that sell them take them out. I have always used coupons but ever since that show came out it has gotten aweful.

      • Kim

        I'm totally legit and would be happy to help you make sure you get your inserts every week!  www thecouponshipper dot com and you can reach me at kim at thecouponshipper dot com

    • Zeegirl84

      Okay the tennesseans in nashville had no pg. But if u go to goodletsville u can get them. Rite past the walmart on gallatin rd all the gas stations have them

      • DGgirl09

        i live in m'boro, and my tennessean had 3 P&G's in one paper! weird?

      • Missymoo

        I only had one insert!!!!A really skimpy Red Plum fromWags belle meade.What the what? Im temted to go up to the tennesean 2morrow, I was looking for that P&g

      • Airvan83

        going into rivergate on gallatin rd?? i got a paper and it didnt have the pg insert. got it at kroger in goodlettsville

      • Monica

        Thank you! I drove all over East and West Nashville looking for the PG insert. Guess I'll check goodletsville next time. It's getting really annoying not having inserts in the Tennessean! I can almost never find a paper with all the inserts

    • neetneet

      Hi, i live in auburndale- winter haven, florida. got up early and checked everywhere the only insert was smartsource. where can i get the rest of the inserts? esp P&G?

      • Haven know it all

        I am in winter haven as well. Try wal-wart, you can alway go onto the ledgers website and see where some of their newspaper machines are and go there. You can always go to the gas station that is across from Wal-mart it is the new one that was built last year.

    • AmandaR

      To those of you who did get SS and RP inserts, did they have more than 10 coupons in them?? Mine did not–it was all junk adds and only a few coupons…..I am trying to decide wether to call the montgomery advertiser to see where the rest of my coupons are.  I purchased 8 papers–they were all the same–and it is really upsetting that hardly any of the coupons listed above are in there.

      • Birgit Gilbert

        I got all three Inserts in the Greenville SC News, but both SS and RP had very few coupons.

      • Misty S

        My RP AND SS had only few coupons and mainly ads in the tuscaloosa paper. The birmingham paper i got had a different SS in it.

      • Jehs1982

        Mine only had a handful of coupons – I wonder if this is because of the HIGH coupon usage in our area.

      • Ssmalone00

        My Montgomery Advertiser only had the ss and rp and each only had a few coupons. And no P&G. I am so diasapointed.

      • Kelly K.

        Yep my RP didn't have very many coupons in it this morning either, there were a lot of adds

    • Stacy

      I live in Smyrna, TN. Mine had all three.

    • Lucy

      The two Knoxville News Sentinel's I got this morning only had Smart Source and Red Plum.  No P&G.  Very disappointing.

      • Amy

        Same here!

        • Bessie

          I live in Clinton and subscribe to the Knoxville News Sentinel. I received all 3 inserts.

    • Gamego71

      When I stopped to get my Charlotte observer this morning the first half of the papers were missing the P&G insert.  There was a guy sitting by the machine that said someone came and put $2.00 in and took a bunch of the coupons out.  He said that someone had also been taking all the papers after just paying for 1 all over the county which explains why today was the first Sunday in over a month that I have even been able to even find a Charlotte Observer anywhere in the county!  I'm in Rutherford County, NC.

      • Kelly K.

        Yep I was in Concord and had the same issue of trying to find the Charlotte Observer in my area too! People can just be too greedy sometimes.

    • Stephanie

      I went thru two bundles of papers at a Wiegels in Knoxville and only found papers with the SS and P&G.  No RP.

      • Amy

        In Pigeon Forge, SS, RP, no P&G— Knoxville News Sentinel.  Weird!?

        • Oh wow. I'm glad I *didn't* get the Knoxville News Sentinel this week. How disappointing! I Would have expected them to have everything, especially since they are the most expensive.

    • Donna

      No P&G in the home delivery of the Greenville News in Oconee County SC.  I guess I'll call the newspaper tomorrow and try to find out why this was the case.  The cashier at my local Rite Aid said that there were alot of people saying that this morning.  I should have asked her if they were buying the paper there or had it delivered.

    • Beansmomnc

      I am in wake forest nc and receive home delivery- I had ss and rp but no pg

    • Becky

      we got ss & rp but no p&g in the tennessean in antioch area. But we might get it in the mail on tuesday.

    • Jeannie Rivera66

      The Austin-American Statesman had SS and P&G but no RP.

    • Flucylee4d

      In Georgetown SC no rp,ss, and no  pg where are all my coupons

      • Tam John81

        In Charlotte at many stores someone stole all of the inserts!! Many stores were sold out of the paper as well!  I didn't think that this paper was super special but I guess I was wrong.

    • Amy

      I was so worried this morning about actually getting a P&G insert that once I got one, I was just happy .. now that I'm actually looking at it .. the coupons don't expire until 07/31/11! I wonder if that means there won't be one next month??

    • Sam

      Someone STOLE the coupon inserts from my paper!  From my front yard!  I signed up for Sunday only delivery in my area a few weeks ago to avoid buying the paper each week.  This week there was only half of a paper!  :(

    • Jenmar30

      I bought 2 greenville news papers and neither had RP inserts. I'm really upset because I wanted that one more than smart source.. It usually happens to me when I buy papers at Ingles..I think someone takes them out.

    • Darla Andrews

      Awesome inserts today. Tons of free stuff. Birmingham, Al had all 3 of thier inserts plus a $3. off any IAMS cat or dog food coupon.

      • Darla Andrews

        Our Dollar Tree Stores carry the Bham News for only a $1 every Sunday.

      • Robin

        Is that from the Birmingham News for 6/5?  My 4 delivered copies did not have the RP insert.  Have a call in to my BHN contact now to ask her.

    • Acd

      there was a coupon for nutrish dog food in our smartsource.  if anyone else got those and will not use theirs i would be thrilled to trade some baby coupons or something.  i have 4 dogs and they eat alot :)  email me if you could spare some.  amandaduquette@hotmail.com

    • Lyndsey

      the eatonton messenger and lake oconee news only had teh P&G and a portion of the RedPlum. I checked in 2 counties. I had to drive to Covington to buy an AJC and get all 3 inserts:(

      • Kim

        I'm happy to help!  www thecouponshipper dot com Come check me out!

    • Pmcneill

      I live in Dothan AL.  Somebody, please tell me what was so special about the paper this Sunday?  I went to Publix at 8:30 this morning and all the AJC papers were GONE.  I was informed there was even a LINE outside waiting to buy the paper before the store opened.  And they sold the last one at 7:22am.  I know that in the Tuesday paper there was a $5 off $30 or more for Publix.  I happened to be in Atlanta that day and bought 2.   Was this in the Sunday paper as well?  I'm baffled.  >:-(

      • Nothing really special but the PG flyer, but my guess is that because the AJC is a good one, and its not offered widely in your area, there is a lot of competition for it.

        • Pmcneill

          This is the first time this had happened to me.  I've not had a problem getting one before.

      • Kim

        I would be happy to help you set up a co-op for Dothan with the AJC.  My source is legit so they aren't crazy cheap but they are guaranteed and you can get them guilt free!  If you know that there are a lot of people looking for them and not getting them you can really save on shipping by going in together!  www thecouponshipper dot com and you can email me at kim at thecouponshipper dot com.

    • Kristy Strange

      I live in Conway SC and I set out get my papers before 6 am. I was disappointed to witness a fellow couponer stealing every paper from the machines at 2 different gas stations. I mean really. She had no care to witnesses or not. I understand needing to save money but I don't understand greed. I ended up at walmart to purchase them only to find out that they removed from the floor because someone was stealing all the inserts.

    • Bubbaharriett

      No P & G in my paper  – very disappointing!

    • dreamer28209

      I have noticed that the couple section of my paper are being stollen.  I pay for 5 paper and all of them where taken out

      Has this been happening to you as well?

    • I skipped the Knoxville New Sentinel this week, since its the most expensive (at $2 a pop) and I wanted to buy several papers. So I went to Walmart and looked through the three different papers that they sell there. They had: The Chattanooga Free Press, The Daily Times (Blount County), and The Advocate & Democrat (Monroe County). The Chattanooga Free Press cost $1 and had the RP, SS, and P&G inserts. The Daily Times cost $1.50 and had the RP, SS, and P&G inserts. The Advocate & Democrat cost $1 and had the RP and P&G inserts, but not the SS. By far the best deal was the Chattanooga Free Press paper. I bought (at least) one of each, so I'm going through them right now and trying to document the differences between all of their inserts and the coupon list here. :-)

    • Jenny, would it be possible to add into your template for the Sunday inserts, to remind people to check their papers before paying? Every week people get home and find ni inserts, and if you have a template for this post (I assume you do?) then you would auto post it every week to remind them to check! :D

    • Margoren

      So the people on ebay who sell inserts, especially those who sell many sets of them, where are they getting them from? Are they buying them from SmartSource, RedPlum, etc? Are they buying them for a newspaper that sells bundles of inserts? Or are they getting them in some illegitimate way?
      I just got done buying a set and actually feel bad. I have the feeling that this people are selling the ones we are supposed to be getting in our papers. But what are we supposed to do when we are not getting them or a whole bunch of our coupons are missing?
      By buying this set (this is my first time by the way) I feel like I am encouraging this sellers to sell even more…
      I hope this does not turn into a frequent problem…

      • They are usually getting them in a way they shouldn’t be. NewsAmerica has put out a notice that if newspaper companies do not start making sure extras are destroyed, that newspaper will no longer receive inserts. In addition, people found selling extras and not destroying them at newspaper companies can be prosecuted. http://www.watertowndailytimes.com/section/coupon_policy

      • Kelly K.

        I don't think they can buy them straight from the companies, I have a feeling many are stolen. So many people in my area are reporting stolen inserts even in stores, I think the whole extreme couponing deal has brought out a new group of crazies that happen to ruin it for the casual shoppers.

        • AD

          Sometimes, the machines that assemble the papers mess up.  My local paper is notorious for that.  It is not just the coupons that sometimes are missing.   On some weeks, the Walgreens, CVS, and/or Rite Aid ads are missing. 

          Of course, I have had people steal my whole newspaper on several occasions, not just on Sundays.  Once, somebody wanted a photo on the front page, so, they tore it out, along with all the pages behind it.  It was like something took a huge bite out of the first section.  Got to wonder what the heck is wrong with some people.

      • They are usually getting them in a way they shouldn't be. NewsAmerica has put out a notice that if newspaper companies do not start making sure extras are destroyed, that newspaper will no longer receive inserts.

        Important Message From NewsAmerica Marketing” You will find it.

        Expect the selling to slow down or stop in the near future.

    • Did anyone in the Athens, GA area get the P&G insert in the Athens Banner Herald?  I get Sunday only delivery for 2 papers and neither one had the P&G insert.  I got both the SS and the RP inserts in both.

      • Kim Ramsey

        I have no idea how people get them for crazy low prices.  I actually purchase them from someone who has a contract directly with the AJC and I can guarantee you mine are not being pulled from other people's papers or being obtained illegally.  Further, there are people in your area already getting papers from me and you could join in with them to share on shipping.  If you are interested in getting AJC inserts you can reach me at kim at thecouponshipper dot com.  Mine won't be the cheapest inserts you can find anywhere but they will be totally legit!

    • Kim the Coupon Shipper

      A few tips for folks out there!

      -If you don't get the inserts in your paper call them directly and complain.  I know that the AJC will mail them to you sometimes if you call them.  If you call every week they won't but if you run into problems here and there they can help you.  I would imagine some complaints to other papers besides the AJC could also get results.
      -I complained to the AJC about how many papers I was getting directly from them that didn't have the inserts and they actually talked to their warehouse workers and got them to do a better job.  Something you might want to consider with your own paper, wherever you are!  A lot of times the people who assemble the paper are just careless!
      -Try the folks who sell the paper at the exits in the Atlanta area.  Their papers usually have the inserts b/c other folks can't get to them to rifle through them and pull them out.  Just pull over and check them all before you pull away.  If your paper doesn't have it let the seller know and they will help you get ones that do!  Make sure you have cash and most of them seem to be selling for $1/paper, which is better than you will find in any store!  You might have to run around to find them some weeks but if you do they can be a wonderful resource.
      -I have extras of all three inserts from this weekend.  I obtained them legally and properly, so they aren't as cheap as others you might find on the net, but you can feel good about them knowing that you aren't taking from someone else.  I also offer to ship them to you every week, so no more grabbing the paper only to find that they didn't have any or some of your inserts!  You can read about my services at kim at thecouponshipper dot com or you can email me directly at kim at the couponshipper dot com.  I have several references here on SS that you can speak to if you have questions.  The most you would pay for my papers is $2 each plus actual shipping which is pretty reasonable to know you don't have to run all over town Sunday morning only to get frustrated!
      -If you live in Athens, Jefferson, or Augusta I might be able to hook you up with a co op to ensure you get your inserts every week and you can grab them locally.  Again, contact me at kim at thecouponshipper and I'll try to connect you up.  I would be happy to help you get a co op started in your area if you know other folks frustrated with stores selling out or the coupons being stolen.

    • Coadjess

      No P&G inserts in our paper in Huntsville, AL. Really disappointing as I can't seem to find them online to print.

    • Jkelseytn

      i bought 3 of the Huntsville Times and all 3 were missing the Red  Plum coupons.

    • Brookied

      I only got a P&G in my Huntsville paper. No RP or SS in any I looked thru @ gas station :(

    • Mommy Monique

      I'm from Las Vegas, NV and a newbie. It was my first time buying Sunday newspaper. I only got SS, no PG and RP. I bought the Las Vegas Review Journal.

    • Aamanee

      I cant find the Perdue Q in RP. Any one else having this issue?

    • Robin

      I started a new subscription to The Birmingham News Sunday edition this week (4 copies!) and was upset to discover there was NO Red Plum insert in any of them, only SS and P and G.  The ones I bought previously from the newstand had the RP in it.  What gives?

      • couponcrazy

        you are lucky to even get them at the Newsstand because every time I buy a Birmingham News Sunday edition at the store or even from the paper box there is never a RP in them. I wonder if someone removes them before placing them or delivering them. After all the people selling inserts or coupons got to get them from somewhere

    • Brooke

      I'm new to the Cary, NC area.  Can anyone tell me where I can get newspapers?  In GA, I would normally go to Publix where I could get the double stack papers for $3.  Haven't seen that here.

    • Pattcoupons

      if you want the list of Atlanta Journal coupon inserts, email me pattcoupons@gmail.com.

    • I'm SO angry. I bought my paper from my usual orner guy, and there was even a notice on th e front of the paper that said “$200 in coupons and savings inside!” NOT ONE SINGLE INSERT. I'm going to hope that there are still some papers left at the grocery store, although I doubt it. They always sell out of sunday editions.

    • Pamela Rugen

      question: Can I stack in this way? say Hellman's is on sale B1G1… I have a MC that is  $1 off 2 and 2 MC's for $.50 off 1… can I use all three on the purchase of 2?

      • Cpies

        Not if any of them says cannot combined with any other coupon or offer.

    • Dheming

      Like it matters!  Can't find a Sunday paper in my neighborhood to save my life.  People buying 30 papers at a time.

      • Pmcneill

        It's geting rediculous.  It will catch up with them one day ;)  Greedy people….

    • Kim the Coupon Shipper

      I have some extra P&G, RP, and Publix inserts from the AJC.  I see several people were shorted these in their papers so if you need them I'm happy to sell them at a reasonable cost and only charge you actual shipping costs.  If you are interested contact me at kim@thecouponshipper.com!

    • Colcol_87

      Bought 2 newspapers as always yesterday only to find that when I got home, there were no inserts.  So, yea me, no inserts this week.  Seriously people, why can't we just be honest and take what we actually paid for?

    • Gophernek

      Of course same with me I live in Dvl , Ala  and again i had no coupons no ads, nothing can you people believe this. . . What is my carrier doing with all these ads. . .Maybe i should dock his pay since he can only give me half of my paper!!!

    • Susan

      I signed up to get 3 copies of the Raleigh N&O delivered to my house via mail (not in their home delivery area).  Monday was my first delivery and there was not a single insert in any of my copies.  I thought that the subscribers got the inserts even when the news stands didn't.  There wasn't even a Target or WAGS ad, so I think something is wrong.  I'm calling them today, but the wait time is long on the phone and my toddler is NOT a fan of me being on the phone.

      • Susan

        Nevermind.  PSA though.  If you need the Raleigh paper and order it by mail, they don't put any inserts in it when they send it.  NONE.  Guess I'm back to battling the hundreds of people in Fayetteville trying to get one of the 20 copies of the paper that they deliver to Barnes and Noble or Harris Teeter.

        • Pattcoupons

          You can purchase Atlanta coupon inserts from koupon-kash dot com.

    • TK29

      I have seen in The Kroger and CVS Weekly Ads where it has a $5 off of the Full Repair John Frieda Hair Care Item in SS 6/05, but I only see the $2 off listed above….Anyone know if this $5 coupon could be elsewhere

    • I went through 3 of our local papers and marked the differences in the Smart Source and Redplum inserts. Where can I submit this information? I think 2 of the papers are ones that you don't currently have listed for Tennessee. :-)
