Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 5/15.

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.

    • Mcleodsc

      The State that I purchased was missing the Parade McD's coupon. The Item did not have any inserts:(

    • Jennapatrick8

      Where do you get the Kraft Summer Savings Booklets and the other booklets that you say you can get coupons out of?  Do I need to sign up for these somewhere?  Thanks.

    • Monica

      Sure would love to see whats comin my way in San Antonio TX

    • Unacutie

      The SS insert was missing from the Huntsville Times that I purchased @ publix!!!! Called the paper and they said they ran out, and the inserts go to “home delivery” papers first!!!  I was not a happy couponer on Sunday : (

    • Lasseliza440

      i live in Winston Salem, NC. the local paper here is Winston salem journal.

      • Cfoster1212

        I agree! I need to know this info the Winston Salem Journal.

        • Tabatha

          So which paper is best to buy?? how come the news and journal isn't able to be looked at??

    • tsmayol

      I would like to thank the ladies in NC who take the time to submit these coupon variations every week. I live in Winston Salem but both the Raleigh and Charlotte area are pretty close match-ups to the coupons I receive. Thanks so much!!

    • Rrbarr

      Hey, does anyone have any idea how this happened.  I bought 6 Sunday AJC's at Publix.  5 of the inserts were the same and did not include some of the q's listed for Atlanta.  Only 1 of the inserts matched the listed q's.  How can I purchase the SAME paper at the SAME time at the SAME place and STILL get different q's from each other??????  And why do they sometimes not match the Atlanta area?????

    • I live in Vero Beach Florida. we get many papers. and each one has a diff variation of coupons. drives me insane! and half the stuff yall have i dont have some stuff i have u dont i think. where can i find my sneak peaks?

    • Red30selhorst

      I really enjoy this site. I think it is wonderful to get an idea of what is on sale and able to get printable coupons and different sites, however i'm in ohio so doesnt really apply to me. Does anyone know where i could find a site that deals with the ohio region?

    • connie

      The Herald Journal in SC only has RP and PG inserts. They never have SS, I guess that's where the “regional” part comes in.

      I can buy the Grennville News though. They seem to have pretty good inserts so far.

    • Melissa

      I was wondering how people can let you know the variations. I noticed that you don't have a list for the Spartanburg Herald Journal.

      • Debee2000

        Melissa, the variations are all handed in by volunteers who go through the specific papers and look for similarities and differences.

    • Silverstarrlyte

      AJC in Georgia doesnt come up – all black screen…

    • Tshockley1

      Is there anyway you could add The Lakeland Ledger, Lakeland Florida.  Is is a pretty big paper and the only one we really get around here.  There website is good.

    • Man. I just checked out the Knoxville New Sentinel and there is a TON missing. I can't believe how much we don't get in there! Thanks for sharing all this info everyone. :)
