Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 12/5.

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.

Update:  Sorry guys some mean person went through marked most of these as “inappropriate” so I having to wait for Google to unlock them…  Not pleased…

      Im in Fort Meyers Fl. I didnt get any coupon in my newpaper. I was wondering where Kathy gets her paper. If you could help I would appreicated it
      Thanks Cindy

    • Katkoupon

      “Sorry, the page (or document) you have requested does not exist.” on a couple of these links that I tried.

      • Katkoupon

        Atlanta Journal and Sun News.

      • Qpondiva

        I could NOT get AJC link to work either! Oh well : )

    • sue

      not working for me either

    • Leigh

      Sun News Myrtle Beach link isn't working…

    • Lawsonaba

      These haven't been working for a few days. I tried to check the AJC list from 11/14 on Monday with no luck.

    • WynetteC

      Giving this message:
      Sorry, the page (or document) you have requested does not exist.

      For AJC subscribers, it depends on which county you are in for which insert you actually received in your paper. I don't know why the variations are so broad for the counties. The AJC paper was sold in stores advertising the lump value amount of all 3 coupon booklets.

      From the papers I bought in West Georgia, I actually got the Red Plum and General Mills (small SS) inserts in the papers but missed out on the rather thick Smart Source. I can tell by the note beside Big John, that some areas didn't receive Red Plum.

      • Cputman200

        I recieve the AJC as a home delivery in Smyrna – Cobb County and I only got the RP and the smaller SS (General Mills). I was able to buy the bundle of 2 papers at Publix in Vinnings and both had all 3 inserts. Very crazy!!

    • Lara Sue

      The Tennessean link sends me to the “Google Docs” page and doesn't give me the variations.

    • Ann

      Question. What do the different colors mean? Thanks

      • Katkoupon

        Red = Not in this insert
        Blue = A Change in Value or a new coupon not in the preview.
        Black = In the insert as previewed

    • Pielue

      The Atlanta Journal link, also sends me to the “Google Docs” page and doesn't give me the variations

    • Katkoupon

      “Update: Sorry guys some mean person went through marked most of these as “inappropriate” so I having to wait for Google to unlock them… Not pleased…” (from Jenny)
      I can't believe some people have nothing better to do.

    • Jenny (or whomever needs to receive this) I have gone through the Savannah Morning News and noted the variations on paper. What form do you want me to send this and where (i.e. Word document) or if it is google form I can copy and paste that straight in….

      I'm ready when y'all are =)

      • Katkoupon

        This is probably not the best answer, but I went thru the “contact me” form at the bottom of this page. Then Jenny e-mailed me with instructions. hth

    • Pielue

      Is this going to be fixed, are we going to be able to print the list off? Or is there somewhere else we can get it?…I need the Atlanta Journal list……I know we are spoiled…:)

    • MissPure1

      Jenny, you can add the Jackson Sun to Tennessee's list.

    • Kerry72nc

      Is there any way I can get a copy from Beth – Charlotte Observer via email? It's still not working :(

    • Mrs Cunningham 07

      What does the different color fonts represent?

      • Kerry72nc

        Red = Not in this insert
        Blue = A Change in Value or a new coupon not in the preview.

    • Maviscoupons

      Tasha's Huntsville Times version is Not correct! LOTs of missed coupons, the Decatur Daily is more indicative of what is actually included.

    • Lorismiles4u

      I live in Arkansas and the Arkansas Democratic Gazette has coupons in their Sunday paper.
