Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 8/08.

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:

      The Macon Telegraph isn't working. I'm getting a google sign in page to create my work.

    • Lara Sue

      Same with the Tennessean

    • I'm a little baffled… I've opened these in explorer firefox and safari and they are all opening for me. We got to eat dinner and then I'll spend some time tonight trying to figure it out!

      • Lara Sue

        If it helps – I have tried opening all of them. The first two are spreadsheets and they open fine for me. Of the rest of them the only one that opens for me is the Savannah News Press. The url for it is also the ONLY one that does not have “document” in it after the docs.google.com part of the url. The Savannah News Press has “doc?docid” instead of the “document” in the url. Hope this helps.

        Thanks Jenny! Take your time, I'm in no hurry.

    • Lindashopswell

      The Atlanta Journal doesn't have a link to click on.

    • big john

    • Bridget

      I normally get the Raleigh N&O, but will be on vacation in Atlantic Beach, NC this weekend (the Crystal Coast region). Does anyone know which would be the best newspaper to get there? Thanks!

    • aclanford

      Jenny, you can only see a little bit of the first column of the Birmingham one. Am I doing something wrong? Thanks for EVERYTHING you do! I'm lovin' it!

      • Megan

        Same thing for me. ditto aclanford. You deserve a big pat on the back, Jenny.

    • Kristen B

      Can you add a link for Charlotte? Thanks!

      • Madpaulmom

        I do the Charlotte observer for Jenny. When I sent her the email with the variations, I did not send the attachment with it. I do that alot ;-) I did attach it when I sent it to her late yesterday…..

    • wendyc33

      It says the montgomery advertiser did not get a red plum insert, but i got one. It wasnt that good, but I received one in my paper.

    • BeckiesCoupons

      I was wondering what it takes to do this for the Louisiana (Times Picayune) paper inserts? I'm interested in doing it.

    • Lacey

      Big John said he got a Red Plum in the AJC, did anyone else get it? I didn't get it in any of the SIX papers I bought… I was pretty upset about it.

      • big john

        wow lacey when saw the extra i went and bought two more both had bonus red plum. i ordered 20 extra progresso soup q's with discount at kroger and the catalina deal next week our local food bank gonna be swimming in soup.

    • ambergriffin

      I don't understand: I get the Raleigh News and Observer but on 8/1 it didn't have the P&G insert and then 8/8 didn't have either the RP or the 2nd SS…I'm very disappointed b/c I see so many deals that I don't have the coupons for! Does anyone else have this problem. I live in Hampstead so I don't know if that's why??

      • kcreviews

        I live in Wilmington but get the Raleigh newspaper from a machine at Food Lion. I usually thumb through to make sure the paper has all the inserts it is supposed to. It could be just a fluke, though. Sometimes they make mistakes and don't get them all in. Otherwise, I don't know.

    • kcreviews

      I will start Sunday helping Lisa out with the Raleigh paper. The Wilmington paper stinks!

    • lin

      I get the Fayetteville paper but a lot of the time there are no good coupons. I called one time and was told it was according to the area I live in as to what I get. This doesn't seem to make a lot of since to me. Is there a better paper in the Moore county area? The local Pilot has the same as the Fayetteville paper. I have thought about changing papers but do not know the best to subscribe to.

    • Dallis

      I bought 4 Tennessean's and no SS but I did get General mills.
