Coupon Insert Variation 2/21

on 2.24.2010 at 11:36pm

This post may contain affiliate links. Read our disclosure here.

Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 2/21.

Click on the paper near you to see what coupons were actually in the inserts around the Southeast. Check out the differences to really get an idea of what paper is the best to buy. There are variations every week.

A few ways to use these lists:

  1. You see that you did not get a coupon that was released, you can go to online coupon sites and order it.
  2. Print the list for your inserts and keep it with your inserts to quickly know if you have that coupon.
  3. A way to decide what paper is the best paper in your area to buy.

      hi there does anyone know how you find the coupon insert information ahead of time? my news paper is never on this list and i was wondering do you call th newspaper or what

        Jenny posts the Sunday Coupon Preview each week telling what will be in the newspaper that upcoming weekend (see post just above this one). Then, after people receive their newspapers they can update the list to what they got and send it over to Jenny to be posted with Variations list that comes after the weekend, later in the week.

    • I'm going to frame these and hang them when my husband's at work and see how long it takes him to notice when he gets home!

      I would like to know how to email Jenny. She says, in the above, “If you would like to help out with a list email me….”, yet, I have never seen an email address for her. Anyone else know???

        I am wondering the same thing – hopefully someone will respond soon!

        It’s off to the right any time that you are on SouthernSavers.

      The Sun News on Sunday included all 3 inserts for home delivery but excluded the smart source in the news stand papers. Apparently this is part of a policy implemented from Nov '09.

      I have started keeping a weekly list of variations for the Virginia Gazette & publish it as a google doc. Here is the one for 2/21:


      I am trying to figure out how to email Jenny with this information as well so it can be listed weekly – anyone know an email address?

      Thanks –


    • sostinkinhappy

      Excellent! Thanks for the email address Jenny.
