Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 10/23.
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. If 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. Use it as a way to decide what paper is the best paper in your area to buy.

A legend for the list:

Black = You got this coupon!
Red = Not in this insert
Blue = A change in value or a new coupon not in the preview.

As folks send me the lists I will update this page. If you haven’t seen your area covered in a while and want to help, email me at jenny@southernsavers.com.

    • Jenniferkinnaird

      You can add “The Advocate” from Baton Rouge to your list, we get the inserts in that paper.

      • Papers are added as people send Jenny the variationss. Someone needs to volunteer to do that.

    • BCT

      The Post and Courier link references 10/16 for me. Not sure if the date is mixed up or the insert. I love to compare The State vs the Post and Courier to see if there is a difference in the coupons. Thanks to everyone that does this!

    • Princesspsycho4u

      Is this for last week or for 10-30?

      • Katie

        This is from 10/23 :)

        • Princesspsycho4u

          Thank you :)

    • Clipper24586

      In Virginia, The Danville Register & Bee did not include the Redplum Insert. Very Frustrating!  

      • Meandmystar82

        Hey there! We recieved the Redplum in the Register & Bee,  do you get it delievered ?  ive noticed that if you get the newpaper at a gas station, there usually isn’t all the coupons. but home delivery gets them all.  Also, i’ve had luck at Food lions too

    • Bell7869

      wow that is super can u put these on each week PLEASE ?

      • They are on every Wednesday.

    • I’ve been entering all the coupons I get from my Sarasota/Bradenton papers into a MS Excel sheet for the past year or so, so everything is in rows and columns (columns for product name, value, and expiration). I’d like to be able to help by sending it in, however, when copy/pasting my excel sheet into a Word document or anything else, the columns remain straight and formatted, so it doesn’t quite match your format.

    • Renlav2001

      Yes, Thanks Anna for the Tupelo Journal recap. I started to do this myself but by the time I was finished with the Red Plum insert I was so discouraged by the number of coupons not there that I had no desire to move on to the SmartSource insert. What’s up with that? I understand “variations” but there is a huge difference in the number of coupons offered. Maybe us “Miss Women” should get together and let Red Plum know that we coupon also.

    • Coupongirl1203

      AJC is to Atlanta as __________________is to Nashville?
      I am going to a wedding and will need to get my papers in Tn… HELP!!

      • Cheryl Baer

        Where will you be in TN? I live in LaVergne, get my Tennesseans in Smyrna, about 12 miles east of Nashville.

    • Lisa

      I’m confused.  I just found this page today.  I’m the in DC area so I get all 3 of the 4 Maryland papers listed above but only the Sun has a link to what is in it.  (the one I don’t get ;)  Does this mean you need people to submit this info or am I doing something wrong?

      • That is exactly what it means.

    • Jane

      Now that the Durham Herald-Sun has coupons again, can anybody say how they compare to the News and Observer?

      • Katie

        I buy the Raleigh news and observer and mine usually have all the coupons in them. I have never bought the Durham Herald-Sun. The only insert we seem to occasionally miss is when target puts out coupons.

    • Judy

      For the last twol weeks, non of the Charlotte Observers that I have tried to purchase (From inside stores that don’t allow people to search and take out the coupon circulars) haven’t had a Smart Source in them.  Has anyone else living outside of Charlotte NC noticed this as well?

      • Jamie

        Greenville News hasn’t had SS inserts for a month at least now! Not sure where Lisa gets her paper, but we haven’t had anything but Red Plum and a P&G lately. We can’t figure out what the deal is…

    • dscampbell

      I live in a rural town near Fayetteville, NC.  We are no longer receiving Sunday’s Ads in the Fayetteville Observer.  I called and the newspaper said the companies have elected to not send ads in our paper for my area (even though we are getting the FO and paying full price for it).  Who can I complain to about this?  (already complained to FO)  I find it hard to believe that all the stores in the Fayetteville area are refusing to send us their ads.

      • Katie

        You’re still getting coupons right?? And it may not be all Fayettville Observer papers???  I bought one in Pembroke, NC and it had coupons and sales ads. (Not as many as most papers but still some)

        • dscampbell

          Thanks, Katie.  Yes, I’m still getting coupons, but no sales inserts.  Fayetteville Observer told me that the companies are electing to not send the ads to Bladen County.  Makes me wonder if they would prefer that we not shop in Cumberland County. 

          • Katie

            You can find the ads on most companies web sites…. yeah that stinks when it comes to price matching but that way you’d at least know what’s on sale.

    • Tmanhollan

      I didn’t get any ads in my AJC. I wonder if they were taken?

      • Katie

        The newspapers are having trouble getting enough inserts to meet the demand and sometimes they run out before filling all the papers. (Or someone could have taken them…. I would like to think not but it’s defiantly a possibility)

    • Couponguy11

      I’m conufsed. I don’t know where “Cindy” (Asheville-Citizen Times got her papers from, but when I had my dad go buy 5 last weekend, there were no coupon inserts in any of them. And they didn’t look like they had been gone through.

      • Katie

        The newspaper company might have run out of inserts before filling your papers…. Sorry Cindy may have gotten coupons.

    • Cnortorious

      South Carolina post and Courier has the wrong insert list….

    • Angelfish9503

      Please reply if you got the Wilmington StarNews and Raleigh News & Observer.  Trying to figure out if I got same inserts as others in my area……Thanks! 
      News & Observer – I got (1) Red Plum; (1) P&G
      Wilm StarNews – I got (1) SmartSource; (1) P&G

      • Katie

        I got the Raleigh news and observer and I got all 3 inserts – SS, RP, and P&G

    • Bruce of Greenville

      Another bad week of coupons.  That makes seven of eight weeks.  Only good one this week was Longhorn Steakhouse…  What’s going on!!!

    • Icantoosolutions

      Some people are getting up and getting all the newspapers here.  It is crazy.  I only want two a week.  I guess I will have to get up at 4:00 a.m. and sit at the store to get a Tuscaloosa Newspaper.  That is the only paper we get here in Columbus, MS that has any coupons. There were not any papers left anywhere at 10:00 a.m. and every store clerk I asked said someone bought them all when they were delivered. Are we going to have to fight to get a couple coupon books???

      • Katie

        It’s cheaper to have the paper delivered anyway. Plus this was you won’t have to be up at the crack of dawn to fight others for papers.

    • I am so so confused I live in SC and get the post an courier, It says Target had a uniliever insert? This is not the first week I have seen this where it says Target has an insert however I have NEVER seen one?!?! Someone please explain!

      • Katie

        We rarely get the target inserts in Raleigh, NC. I am not sure why. Not all papers get all the inserts.
