Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 1/16.

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.

As folks send me the lists I will update wit

    • mom22millerboys

      Columbus Ledger-Enquirer (Georgia) is not listed . . . thanks for all your good info!

    • Bridges000

      I didnt get several of the coupons list in the Bham news =(

    • Donna0130

      You are the bomb and I get to meet you this Saturday. I am so excited! God has used you in so many ways to help my family and my friends! Thank you for this information.

    • Alena

      The Tampa Tribune in Tampa Fl is not listed!

      • tygirl13

        That is because no one from that area has sent her a list of the coupons that were in that particular paper. Jenny does not make a list of every paper in the southeast, individuals send her the list and she posts them here.

      • NolaGirl

        To: tygirl13
        Were you able to find a T-P vendor in Gulfport? Couldn't reply under your comment for some reason.

    • Griffingirl69

      I just moved to Ohio from Ga about 88 miles from Columbus which is the biggest city that is close to me…I have no idea which paper to get for the coupons? Does anyone know how I would go about finding out which one has all the inserts? thanks

      • Rick

        Where in Ohio do you live. I live in Mansfield. I get some of mine from the Mansfield News Jounal, but most of my SmartSource coupons come in the mail. You can also try the Columbus Dispatch.

        • Griffingirl69

          I live in the Portsmouth area I'll look for the Columbus Dispatch this week, hopefully someone around her will have it. Thanks:)

    • Aneely

      I get the Birmingham News but my inserts still do not have all the coupons listed under the “Bham News” link above. I have a very hard time finding majority of the coupons listed on this site in my paper :( Any advice? Can you get a paper sent to you from other cities?

    • sls

      SC Post and Courier does not have a link. how do i print that list

    • Ann in Atlanta

      I feel horrible asking since you guys did all the work, but when I open up the AJC link from Georgia, I see the P&G list, but no SmartSource. Was that one in there too or has it just not been contributed. Sorry to be such a moocher!

    • HT

      My Tampa Tribune had NO coupons in it on 1/16. Why would that be?

    • Scarieusc

      I have started to receive the Redplum and Smartsource coupons in our Wednesday mailers! It started as jst Redplum, but in the past few weeks they have included Smartsource too! These are the coupon inserts that will also be in our Sunday paper this coming week! Is anyone else getting these? I am in Columbia, SC. :)

      • Klynn

        no bur i would like to know how to get them.

      • Couponjunkie

        I've been getting the SS circular(s) in the Redplum on Tuesdays but never any Redplum circulars. I'm in Lexington, SC.

    • Jenn

      How do I read the Savannah one? Everything is just black?

      • Sandy

        I got all black too! This happened last week as well.

        • I'm sooo sorry I didn't realize that happened! What is your email and I will send it to you directly. When I paste it into the body of the email to Jenny, it stripped all the color, only I didn't notice it. I just plopped it in there and hit send =(

          I've just sent Jenny the 16th WITH COLOR =) and I will send last week's to her also. I'm so glad you said something about last week, I had no idea. A good friend of mine asked me what happened this week thinking it was her printer, but not knowing why. I'm so grateful she let me know =)

          If y'all or anyone else who get's to read this wants me to email it to them directly (not knowing how long it will be before Jenny gets it re-uploaded, please message me and I'll be glad to send it to you!

          I'm sooo sorry y'all! I know how much I rely on checking the variations each week!!

      • I'm sorry for the mess up, please read my explanation of what went wrong under Sandy's reply below. I'm happy to email it to you directly and I'll be keeping a careful eye from now on that the body of the message of my email doesn't strip all the color out again. Boy, I didn't realize that it would even do that… big lesson learned this weekend!! Catherine

    • Susanne

      Out of curiosity, are the coupon variations listed above in each document added to the SS coupon database?

    • Psbuwalda

      where's the other insert for Atlanta?

    • NonDescriptMember

      My Montgomery Advertiser didn't have but about a forth of the smartsource coupons listed. I did get all of the P&G however.

      • NonDescriptMember

        My apologies. I didn't realize the meaning of the colors. I do now. :)

    • Amanda T.

      How do people get these lists early?? I get the FL Times Union, but it's never included (at least not in the first list I see posted). Thanks!!

      • Cassie

        I have the same problem with the FLTU post, never on here

      • Kris

        I decided to do my own variation list for my paper, Decatur Daily. It wasn't posted on the weekly insert variation list. One day I simply decided to send my list to Jenny if she wanted to post it. She did.

    • Mkbaker

      Do you happen to have a list for coupons in Oklahoma? Thanks

    • Lindsey

      Thanks to Kris and Jenny for the Huntsville Times (alabama) lists!!

    • CarinaPeters

      I am the contributor for the AJC variations and I did not receive a SmartSource insert in my delivery. I went out and purchased an additional paper and still did not receive the SmartSource insert…. I assumed there wasn't one included but it seems other people in my area did have one. Sorry!

      Also, I will be out of town begininng on Saturday and I will not have access to my AJC so if anyone would like to complete the variations for next week only please email Jenny. Thanks!

    • Melissa

      ok, so if there is no underline in the name of the newspaper, what does it mean? thanks….

    • Toni

      For those in GAINESVILLE, FL: Where can I get Sunday papers on weekdays?
      Also, I bought two Sunday papers on the 16th, and there were no Red Plum inserts, and I got only 1 SmartSource insert. This is common in my experience, so I need a back-up place to pick up a paper during the week.

    • MomofEE&I

      The Chattanooga Times Free Press also had a $2 Zicam coupon in the Parade Magazine insert

    • For all the Savannians who downloaded this (and I just found out: last week's) variations, I am so sorry. I didn't notice that the color was stripped away when I pasted the list into the body of the email message. I've just sent the full color text to Jenny for this week, and I'll send her last week's in just a moment. If you would like me to email it to you directly, in the meantime, please use my name link to message me and I'll send them out as quickly as I read the requests.

      Again, I apologize for the inconvenience! And a big thanks to my good friend who asked me about it this week; otherwise I still wouldn't know it had happened!!! {How EMBARRASSING!!!} I rely on the variation sheet each week; particularly with how different our inserts can be from the preview! I'll be keeping a close watch on that from now on – promise =)


      • And for the record I just pulled up some of the earlier weeks and I see all these crazy fonts and alignment. That is all happening in the email I guess! I sure don't type it that way….

        I'll talk with Jenny, too and find out what she would prefer to make this consistent. We had trouble in the past with attaching the word document… I'm glad to know there is a problem, please don't hesitate to let me know. I rarely read these comments, though, if you find a problem and don't mind sending me a message by clicking on the link on my name (I think that is how you can message me…) I would appreciate it. I check this email every day or two at the most (It's my Q email, naturally! LOLOL)


        • Okay, one last thing: I just emailed it out to a friend. It left my email looking normal and arrived in her inbox in black only. I'll send these out as .pdf files for anyone who requests them to prevent this color problem.

          I must admit, it feels better knowing that I didn't somehow NOT notice the lack of color! It looked totally normal to me, but arrived incorrect!

    • angeljoy66

      Just pulled up the list for coups that should be in the Savannah Morning News (Thank you for that link, finally.) :) The list states there should be a $4 coup for a twin pak of Opti-Free, however that coupon isn't in my SS. Why does this happen so often? Is there a remedy? I seem to stay frustrated about couponing because this is the rule, rater than the exeption. *sigh*

      • Angeljoy66, the list that is uploaded for the last two weeks went up all black because of an error that happened with email. If you'll send me your email address, I'll be glad to send it to you directly with the correct omissions, changes, and additions for our paper.

        All areas have variations from the preview we get each week. Some areas vary more than others. One thing seems to be true from what I have learned, is the more of what is used is given.

        The mix up with the variations upload won't happen again. When I pasted the list into my email to send in, it did still appear in color. However, it arrived in their inbox all black. I tested this with a good friend of mine, and sure enough…it looks correct, but then is stripped of the colors when she opened it.

        I'll be sending them to her as a .pdf from now on. Use the variation sheets to verify if that Q was in our paper each time you are compiling your list.

        Sometimes it feels like Savannah is an entirely different insert! Definitely a must to use the variation sheet and know what we have before flipping through….

        • Val

          I came on here to see if I could get the inserts to print in color on my other computer and I found your message! Thank you so much for typing up Savannah's insert variations. You are right, they are so different then what Jenny usually post. Especially, our Red Plums! I tried to send you an email, but I couldn't figure out how to do it. If you don't mind I'd love a pdf of the inserts. My email is missvmiller@hotmail Again, thank you so much for doing this.

          • I just sent them to you =)

            It will come from catherine diane at yahoo. Anyone else having any trouble messaging me, please feel free to email me directly. I was hesitant to put my address here due to bots who would pick it up and start spamming me. But I don't think they pick it up written out like that (don't forget the dot com…I know you wouldn't…lol).


    • Just another entry to keep this at the top. If you are here for the Savannah Morning News, please email me at catherine diane at yahoo (all one word and correct as an email address, I'm trying to keep it from being picked up on by bots) and I'll send you the last two weeks as a .pdf file.

      I apologize for the problem of them being in all black. When I paste the list into my email message field it looks fine (all color present) but it arrived to them without any color. Thanks to a good friend asking me about it, we were able to figure out what was happening (when I emailed it to her we found it was leaving in color and arriving without the color).

      I hope this helps all my Savannian couponers =)

      What do the colors mean?
