Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 5/22.

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.

    • Jenbissness

      Did the Red Plum insert not come in the Tennessean?

      • Amie

        Yes, it did. Wonder if maybe it's just not included yet.
        PS – Not sure who “Phyillis” is, but thank you so much for looking through the Tennesseean every week to do the coupon matchups!

        • Jenbissness

          Thanks Amie, I was checking to see if my local Chattanooga paper has more coupons, but it looks like the Tennessean beats it hands down.

          • Heather

            Can we order the tennessean in Chattanooga?

        • Selena

          I did not find the RP coupons listed under Phyillis's Tennessean site, but I did it on my own.  I would be happy to email it to you if you want.  Just let me know.

    • Amanda

      April from Birmingham….you need to represent!!! lol

    • Bdhjel

      Do you know of anyone in Iowa that has put together a list like this?  This would be very helpful.  Love your site btw.

    • Katkoupon

      Jenny, the Sun News link brings up the Charlotte Observer :)

    • daisy


      • ChrissyPunkin

        Yes, that's correct.  If your paper isn't listed, that probably means she doesn't have someone in that area who is willing/able to do the list.

        For future reference, typing in all caps is like shouting online.

        • daisy

          I have trouble with my eyes, so it is easier to see when I type in caps. sorry. I was not shouting.

          • Beth

            It's so much easier to read something when it's in all caps – so keep it up :o)

    • The State is also bringing up the Charlotte Observer… :(

    • Shenna

      How can I show you what inserts I got from my newspaper? Would that help the list if my paper isn't clickable?

    • Shenna

      Nevermind just saw your email address!

    • Holliwalk20

      Is there any way to get the coupons from a paper not near you?

    • daisy

      why are some of the papers not a link? how do you check?

    • Jandmbanks

      I know Savannah Morning News didn't get some of the coupons listed. I think they get the same ones as Augusta.

    • Stephanie

      If anyone wants the Atlanta Journal insert list, please email me pattcoupons@gmail.com

    • BluStarMom

      There is a mix up with The State from Columbia, SC, when I click on the link I get the Charlotte Observer coupons, not sure if they are the same.  Thanks.

      • Dbwiseman

        I just noticed the same thing.  Hoping for help here soon! :)

      • Kathy M.

        That's not the list I submitted for The State.  There must be a mix up in the link. If it doesn't get fixed soon I could email it to you.

    • Jessica Crosson

      Ft Myers News Press is the 5/15, not the 5/22…

    • Benjamietaylor

      im going to St. Augustine FL on vacation in a few weeks, anyone know what paper they get and if it is listed.  Thanks!

      • Debbie

        The St Augustine paper tends to have the same coupons as the Jacksonville paper.  To be safe, get the Jax one – you can find it all over St. Augustine.

    • Stacy

      I'm new to couponing in the Orlando area, and I've been purchasing the Sunday paper from gas stations, pharmacy, grocery stores, etc. NONE of the papers I've purchased had the Red Plum insert in them, and the last 2 papers I've bought were missing Smart Source & Red Plum. On Wed I get the Sentinel Express in my mail that has Red Plum written on it but no coupons :( only the weekly ads from Publix and Winn Dixie. Is it common for people to steel the inserts from the papers in the stores? Also, are there local subscriptions I should be signing up for to get more coupons? Thanks!

      • Armykitty01

        yes it is actually normal.  I remember  back like last yr when we did our shoppingon on sunday mornings..all the paper was all over the place and coupons were missing.  we just suscribe (I double dip in the way of shredding the newspaper when i am done with it and put it in my compost box.)  if you are a coffee drinker (even if your not) you can go to a starbucks..they sell the sunday paper and there is no way some can steal the inserts out.

    • kwgglg81

      do you post these variations every week

      • Heather

        Yes, Jenny's list is posted on Wed before & the actual list for your area is posted every Wed after. If there is no link to your local paper then nobody in your area is posting the actual list. Which means you could always volunteer to do it!

    • Heather

      I need some tips or advice from those of you that religiously use the coupon insert list…..when your actual coupons are almost completely different from jenny's list, what do you do?

      • Merck

        Hey Heather My coupons are the same do you get the Atlanta Journal and the Gainesville Times. Thats our News papers that we get and they use to match up but for the last 3-4 months they don't.Its frustrating. Does anyone know of a site just for Georgia or Northeast Georgia.Thanks Tabitha

    • Carinapeters

      I am not sure why Jenny did not list the AJC because I emailed it earlier in the week? If anyone needs a copy in the SouthernSavers format please email me at carinapeters@comcast.net

      Also I am looking for someone who would like to share this responsibility or possibly take it over for a few weeks starting at the end of June. I am expecting a little girl to arrive then and I'm afraid I won't have time for couponing for the first few weeks!

    • tammy

      for best paper in gulfport or biloxi , mississippi is
      star ledger

    • darlene malone

      jenny i live intitusville fl. our paper is florida today news can you update that

    • Jjohnsoncoupons

      I hope April from Birmingham is ok because I haven't seen her post in while…I would be willing to do it some, but I definitely cannot commit to every week.  Anybody else that would like to pitch in????  The list really does help.  I just figured out how easy it was the last few months.
