Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 8/21.

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.

      Will all the newspapers variations be added to the coupon database, both the coupons and each newspaper?

    • what is listed in the Tennessean is wrong. we did not get the 8/21 insert we got old inserts!

      • I am NOT HAPPY at all with the Tennessean eaither.  Not sure what the deal is, but I DO NOT like it.  Wonder what we could do to fix it?

      What coupon site can we order coupons that were not in this weekends SS 8/21?

    • Not sure what the deal is, but we never get what we are supposed to get in the Tennessean in this area.  Thats the only reason i buy the paper.  I feel like my $ is just as good as the persons $ 2 countys from mine.  Kinda bummed bout this!!!  Any1 know what the prob is?

    • this is crap, we didnt get hardly any coupons in Savannah.

    • Anybody in Durham NC That knows if it is worth it to get the N&O over the Herald Sun?  I just pick up the papers on Sundays at the gas station, and the Herald Sun is $.50 cheaper.

      Are all of the coupons in the Asheville Times? I didn’t see any red on the list…

    • In the Birmingham News (Birmingham, Al area), there is a small magazine called Parade magazine. Just recently, I looked in it, and found out that every week they have a different coupon of some kind in it. Just one. A couple of weeks ago, it was a peelie coupon for McDonald’s to receive a FREE smoothie with a purchase of a sandwich or salad (excludes $1.00 menu items). This past Sunday, there was a coupon for $3.00 off Glade Sense and Spray starter kit (exp. 10/01/11). So, for those of you around Birmingham, check out the Parade magazine each week. There’s always some kind of random coupon! :)

      The local papers in our area, Asheville, NC, are considering only putting the coupons in the home delivery of the Sunday paper because of all the stolen papers (now they will probably just take them from peoples boxes).  The paper carriers are contract and are the ones that lose.  They have to pay the paper for the papers they take.  They can claim a small percentage of returns only. Contact the local papers if you still want to be to able purchase these in the stores or racks.  This was on the local news.
