Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 8/01.

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.

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 area 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.

    • Mary_P

      I click to look at the differances and it wants me to sign into southernsavers with your sign.??

      • Boo2010

        Me too! I'm confused – both of the cities I tried to pull up have something to do with Google Docs and when I click on the sign in with my Google account, it doesn't do anything on one of them and the other one is the Southern Savers.biz account sign-in. What's going on??? I've never had these problems with the variations lists.

    • Michellelhs

      I'm having the same issues as the rest of you guys. I tried a few from area that aren't mine and one or two come up but most aren't working.

    • griffins00

      me too :)

    • sorry guys! I had someone helping me today as we traveled to NYC. I think I fixed all the links and they should work without a problem. Let me know if they are still bad…

      • stephmobley9

        You must be at that conference all those other money saving bloggers are at. Soo jealous!

    • KatATL

      Did anyone who gets the AJC not get there P&G insert. I bought two papers Sunday and they were missing in both papers? Aggravating.

      • Elizabeth

        There were P&G inserts in the AJC I bought.

      • gracie1

        oops. I should have posted as a reply to this post. Sorry. I posted a new comment ^^

    • Brooke

      FYI The Greenville News DID get both of the Clean and Clear coupons

    • Katherine

      Did anyone else have different coupons in the AJC? Most of the coupons listed in Red for 8/1 WERE in my inserts

    • Elizabeth

      Big John, you are getting gipped on your inserts in Fayetteville. I am next door in Coweta Contuy and the AJC I bought has inserts with practically every one that you don't have. For example, my SmartSource has the ACT, Ban, Efferdent, Glade, Hormel, Scrubbing Bubbles, Windex, etc., although the amounts may vary from Jenny's list. I have some of the RedPlums you don't have either. I have noticed slight differences before, or between my AJC and the ones my Mom buys in Fulton County but this week there are major differences!

      • Faye


        I'm in Cartersville, GA (northwest of Atlanta) and I got the coupons listed in red as well from my AJC. I wonder what areas didn't get all of them? Hopefully this isn't something AJC will continue doing.

        • Tigress1321

          I'm in Dallas, ga and I know I got some of the ones listed in red too. not sure about all though. I buy the papers on the bottom of the paper stacks

      • big john

        wow and i had pre bought six papers and every one had same thing i was ticked. i have decided to just buy 1 or 2 from now on and get rest via purchase

      • Lmestes1

        yeah, unfortunately the AJC comparison is way off… I got all those Q's as well.

    • gracie1

      So on August 1st, armed with the knowledge of how many coupons should be in my newspaper thanks to this site, my AJC was delivered with only ONE coupon insert, one smartsource. I called customer service, was told my account would be credited. So I drove to the corner store, bought a double newspaper for the new price of $3.00. I got home and discovered from the two new newspapers that one had the P&G coupons. One paper had one Red Plum insert. Both had smart source. So between 3 newspapers, I think I got one of everything, plus 3 smart sources. ARGH!

      • big john

        almost same here gracie i had 1 different red plum in early and late both had smart source both had p and g but seems to have been missing many of the q's i was really wanting peanut butter and the like

      • Megortiz63

        I always go through the papers at the store before I buy them – just a quick flip to make sure I have the inserts and Parade if there were coupons supposed to be in it. Can't tell you haw many times the first couple of papers in the stack are missing inserts at whatever store. I don't care if the store employees think I'm nuts – the purpose of buying multiple papers isn't so I can read them – its only for those inserts !!!!

    • big john

      ok i am starting new game i want to know people are checking these things out. so how many of you had the Act “anti aircraft” rinse? or the Fruit of the loom ” located in your Grocers freezer?”

      • Lacey

        I had the Fruit of the loom

    • Nikki

      I wish that the Florida Times Union was listed for Florida. I am always having trouble with making sure that I get all my inserts.

      • Lisa

        So true Nikki…I am always missing inserts. On August 01 I did not get the P&G or the redpulm

    • Julie

      Do you get the Palm Beach Post variations? I never have what everyone else seems to get.

    • Luv_4_paws

      Ummm….I don't know who did your Birmingham list, but it is quite off, just a little FYI… ;)
