Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 1/09.

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.

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 with links so check

    • Loueffie

      Your link didn't come through for the Tennessean one. :)

    • 21 YrOldCouponer

      Carina, if you want a week off let me know. I usually work Saturday Night, so after work I can put it all together. Thanks for doing this. Seems like a lot of work, but if you want a week off just post. I suppose the first week I do it you should check my work I figure we can get AJC down.

      Also, AJC really has been a lot different than some of the others. They really don't like giving us the ones I like… Oh well, not much you can do about it…

      • Carinapeters

        Thanks!! I just started so this is only my second week. It doesn't take too long and I have time because I stay at home with my 9 month old son. Jenny and this site have helped my family adjust from a 2 income household to a 1 income house so that I could stay home with my little one :) I am expecting again and I am due in June so I am sure when I start to get fat and miserable I will definitely need some help LOL

    • Kennemere

      I ask this every time, but how do we get a newspaper added from NC?

      • kjmiller

        Jenny relies on volunteers to submit the variations for the newspapers they receive. (The papers come out on Sunday, so folks have a few days to submit the information before Jenny puts the posts up on Wed).

    • queuepawn

      Thanks Debbie for your time to do PNJ. Much appreciated.

    • Rdts60

      OK, I'm a newbie, why are the insert lines red, blue and black? Does that mean anything?

      • Katkoupon

        Red = Not in this insert
        Blue = A Change in Value or a new coupon not in the preview.
        (It's at the bottom of the list, easy to overlook:)

    • Christy

      My post and courier only had 1 RP, so SS–anyone else or did I just get jipped?

    • Denisee

      For the last 3 weeks there have been coupons insert in the Wed sales paper ads these are the same cpn are the one that come on next Sun.
      Also the “Yes! your essential paper” that is delivered in the pink bags that are in the driveways has cpn

      • When does the Yes! come? I called about it and they said I was supposed to be getting it since Nov, but I've never ever seen it. ????

        • Denisee

          I thinks it Tues? or Thurs. I dont recieve the Yes! I just viewed my neigbors for the first time

          • thanks! i just got it today! It came with the SS from 1/16 (this past Sunday) so that's awesome!

    • Patscoups

      I'm looking for the variations in the Nashville Tennessean. What am I missing?

    • Chris

      I'm pretty new to couponing! Does anyone know if it's more cost effective to purchase meat, paper towels, toilet tissue, diapers and baby wipes at Sam's or on sale with a coupon? Thank you!

      • FreedomSpradley1

        I've gotten my best deals on toilet paper, paper towels, diapers, and wipes at the drugstores. Of course there have been gaps in sales when I had to hit Walmart for diapers and wipes but you can depend on the drugstores for good deals on paper towels and toilet paper. I wait for meats to go on sale and purchase a couple packs then to stick in the freezer so I never have to pay full price for meats.

      • lauren208

        Diapers, wipes, tp, and pt are always cheaper at drug stores and grocery stores when they go on sale and you have a coupon. Just look at CVS this week. Sometimes meat is comperable at Sams as far as “lowest grocery store prices” go.

    • michelle

      I have heard that The Decatur Daily will no longer carry Smart Source inserts.

      • Rhende77

        I emailed the daily about this and you are right here was their reposnse.
        As of right now we will not be carrying the Smart Souce coupons. Hopefully they will decide to use The Daily again in the future.

    • Boldingc1

      Why is there no hyperlink to click on the State Newspaper? Thank you

      • Boldingc1

        And is there any difference between the inserts of the Florence Paper and the Columbia State Paper?

    • Megan

      I got the FL PNJ and it had the Sonicare toothbrush coupons; in the pdf above they are in red. Don't rely fully on what others post, check your inserts yourself because it can vary.
      Glad too, b/c my husband needs that toothbrush!

    • guest

      Yes, Fort Myers paper was VERY disappointing in what was missing. I ordered inserts from another area… after buying 6 of ours :(

    • Isabela317

      Do you know how I could find out this info for Austin, Texas? I actually live in Kyle in between San Antonio and Austin…Austin is just closer. Thank you for all your help I love your posts

    • Crystal


      Can we get the Birmingham list as it is usually posted? I like to take the variations and modify them in excel for my own use but i can't do anything with this PDF becuase of the security on it. Why the change?

    • Felicia

      The Decatur Daily (Alabama) currently will not be getting any Smart Source until further notice! I got my information from the circulation dept!

    • Amy

      Thanks Bessie for doing the Knox news sentinel. I did not get a Red Plum in my issue of the Knox paper. Does anyone know if I can do anything to get that insert?

    • Robbie

      Thank you Christy for doing the Chattanooga paper.

    • Lmoore77

      Does anyone know how to find out where double stack papers are sold in Atlanta? I will be there this weekend and wanted to buy several for myself and friends. Didn't know if I just have to stop at different gas stations till I found them or if there is a list on the internet somewhere. Thanks for the help!

      • Katie

        Hi, try Publix first. I've never seen the double paper in a gas station but always have luck at Publix. Go early in the day Sunday if you can!

    • VeraRN

      I live in Connecticut. Do you know where I can get the list of insert coupons in the Northeast? I've checked my favorite couponing websites up here with no luck. Thanks!

    • Jrcouponator

      My mom and I get the AJC delivered at home…no Smart Source insert. Did anyone else get it?

    • abigail

      We save like 100 dollers every time we go shoping.

    • jkone

      Is there a link for Michgan papers?

    • Kathy

      I am usually able to copy and paste this so that I can delete the coupons I do not have prior to printing, but for this particular week….I am not able to. Any suggestions. I just hate to print out this entire list when I have so few of the coupons. It would be so confusing.
