Today’s (7/26) Groupon deal is for a six month subscription to the Atlanta Journal!  This means that today only you can get a daily subscription for $36 (reg. $72).

Even if you only really needed/wanted the sunday issue this makes it 6 months of the Sunday paper brought to your house for $1.50 each (reg. $2+ in stores).

If you are in the Atlanta distribution area, this is THE paper to get for coupons.

    • Michelle J

      They don't deliver to Athens. :( Is this also for the mail delivery option?

    • Mary1day

      I saw you on the 11 alive new's last night.It was only a few second's but you were looking good.You are a lot younger than I thought you would be.The AJC stopped delivering to Clarkesville about 6 month's ago.

    • Cecelialorraine

      I do not think this is that great of a deal. The regular postcards they send me in the mail offer the paper at $1.44 an issue.

    • Tami

      I just checked it and it seems to be a Sunday only delivery.

    • ToddDu

      It is for Sunday paper only and will be $1.38 an issue. For me I would much rather buy the double issue for $3 on Sunday morning

      • Serenemiracles

        Just a note for those who are new to subscribing to the newspaper. When you have a Sunday subscription, you also will receive a paper on Holidays, which includes Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years Day. (The major one you will want being Thanksgiving! That is like getting an extra Sunday paper!) You can also call and 'complain' if your newspaper didn't have coupons in it, but PLEASE CHECK the list for the week before doing that! Every week doesn't have coupons.

    • Laurenrichins

      We bought ours. We are in Atlanta. I'm new to couponing and looking forward to getting started.

    • lyssibee

      OK, ATL savers… I've done some research and thought I'd share.

      – This offer is for new AND existing AJC subscribers.
      – It is valid for 26 weeks of Sunday-only delivery of the paper in the following counties: Fulton, Cobb, DeKalb, Gwinnett, Clayton, Cherokee, Forsyth, Henry, Fayette, Douglas, Coweta, Paulding, Hall, Rockdale, Bartow, Carroll, Floyd, Newton, Walton, and Polk.
      – The offer includes sales tax, so it ends up being $1.38 for a paper. Makes it cheaper than the double bundles, but you can only get one paper per address. If you live near a intersection with $1 street vendors, you can get a better deal there.
      Hope this helps!

      Got my printed out but I can't order it until tomorrow. It's still cheaper than buying it at the store. You have to look through them at the store to make sure they have all the coupons because some people steal the inserts.

    • Jess

      I think I will stick to buying it from the guys on the side of the road for $1 each. Does anyone know how they sell this cheap? I am guessing that they get it directly from the AJC, but they obviously are still making a profit at this price!?

      • Serenemiracles

        Yes, here is the scoop. (As a former manager, and current part time employee for the AJC.) The people who sell those newspapers for $1.00 are called Hawkers. One person has a contract in each area to HAWK newspapers for $1.00 on Sundays. The AJC does this with a certain percentage of their total circulation to boost their numbers with the ABC. (Audit Bureau of Circulation) They sell advertising based on their total circulation, a certain percentage of which can include FREE AND DISCOUNT sales. The AJC itself is not MAKING money on those $1.00 sales, but barely covering print costs. The large majority of the $1.00 is going to the person on the side of the road and the person with the contract. (The person on the side of the road is getting between .40-.50 per copy.) The whole purpose of the operation is to 'legally' boost their advertising numbers, so as to charge more to Walmart, Kroger, and Publix to place their flyer in the paper.

        Hope that answers your question!

      I prefer to have my paper Saturday afternoon with the coupons. That way I can shop at CVS with the new coupons and the new ad later in the day :) I don't want my phone to ring for a year later after I cancel either as they will call to try to get you back as a customer forever.

    • Almcgrew

      I also buy mine (AJC) from the local lady on the side of the road. One dollar each and now that I go there all the time she knows I want the coupons and will give me extra if she has them. Really awesome deal and beats any of the stores or subscriptions. Also I get them on Saturday because I have found that the coupons do not change.

    • Michelle

      Where do you find the $1 side of the road vendors? I live in Gainesville, GA, and I've never seen that. I buy the doubles at my Kroger on Sunday mornings.

      • Lindsayhunton

        I am wondering the same thing. I live North of Atlanta in Cuming and have never seen this either. I wish I could get them for only $1.

        • Serenemiracles

          Current Locations for Hawkers near Cobb County include:

          Staples Entrance on Hwy 41 in Acworth.


          Several Spots in Hiram along the main strip.

          Cobb County get it's Bulldog (Early Edition Sunday) around 8am on Saturday, and your Hawkers should arrive around 10am.

          Please reply to this post with other locations for your fellow SouthernSavers!

        Its usually towards the ened of the day. I get the AJC at the White Hall line at the Chevron. It isnt bootlegged ans is $2 compared to $4 if I am in Hiawassee and have to buy it there!

    • Davahodges

      Yeah I live in Chattanooga and recently took a trip to south GA. On the way back, I made sure to stop and get an Atlanta Journal. All I can say is that Chattanooga is gatting gipped big time.

    • Ergolove

      AJC told us that if they send the paper outside of the immediate area then they do not include coupons.

      • Davahodges


      • Serenemiracles

        If you need coupons from the AJC, shoot me an email…

        • Serenemiracles

          same user name at yahoo

    • Couponmama33

      Yes, we went camping in GA and I picked up a paper and was shocked to see the great coupons. Chattanooga papers have half advertisements for junk and then the coupons. I wish they could send th epaper woth coupons up here from GA..:(

    • Kris

      Do you know of anywhere near Calhoun area that they sell the papers on the side of the road? Is it on Saturday or Sunday that they are out there?

    • MH

      Does anyone know if the AJC is still bundling the papers on Sunday mornings? I try to get them from the vendors in Cobb if I have time, but if not, go out early for the double papers. The past few weeks I have not found any, and the Walmart said they have not been getting them from the AJC.

      I hope it hasn't been discontinued! You know you are addicted to couponing when you don't want to pay full price for the newspaper.
