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:

      Thank you Phillis for the Tennessean! Thanks Jenny for all you do.

        What do the different colors mean?

    • Slawson66

      I'm having trouble with the AJC and coupon inserts. I figured out that I can't buy the 'deal' of the two papers banded together, because they don't have the same inserts in them. But last week I only got RP's in the regular edition of the AJC. I checked both papers before leaving the store, and that was all that was in them. Any suggestions?

      • jlc30180

        I always buy the double papers….I have never had a problem…The only time I have ever had a problem with papers is when I try and cut corners and grab the $1 Sunday AJC in Kennesaw and Hiram…But those are the only two places I have found that have them….(I only had this problem when there are a ton of inserts) Every other time No problem…

    • Karensweeney2002

      Still fairly new to this and confused about the red, blue, and black items listed in the Tennessean's list… would somebody please clarify?

      Thanks for all the help, and even with the confusion I think I'm doing a pretty good job saving money and catching at least some of the deals… I figure anything caught is that much more in my pocket!!!

    • gardengirl

      I believe the colors are

      black (have q w/ same amt and exp dt that Jenny listed in preview)

      red (not in the insert)

      blue (in insert, either a different value or expiration date than what Jenny listed in preview OR a q that was not listed in Jenny's preview).

    • ChrissyPunkin

      More red than black for Montgomery, as always. :-( Thanks, Michelle

      • Ilovewdw

        Yes….and never the high dollar coupons…to boot my Bhm News (bought newstand one) was missing the RP :(

    • Susans25

      The link for the Atlanta Journal Constitution is bad.
