    • Bamabobbie

      Why can I pull some of these up and others it shows requested server not found or something like that. Can't get the one in Birmingham.

    • Katie

      Huntsville Times In Huntsville AL

    • Lacey

      I didn't get any Red Plums in the 6 AJC's I got… also three of them were missing PG's…

      • Couponqueen769

        The AJCs I bought at Publix in Athens didn't have the P&G either! None of them did…I always check.

    • Kris

      I only got smartsource in my AJC, was so upset.

    • Burke2010

      I'm glad that I'm not the only one who was missing Red Plums in my AJC paper. I think this has happened before, too, a couple of weeks ago. Is there anyone we can contact to complain?

      • ireneY

        Call 404.526.2277 and leave a message. A nice woman eventually called back and offered to mail a full set to me.

        • Burke2010

          Thanks, Irene! I'll give it a try!


      I was hoping we here in Nashville would receive our P&G ads since so many of us across the city and surrounding areas received NONE. What is up with that?

    • Brooke

      Did anyone else not get the P&G insert in the Greenville News? Huge bummer.

    • aag972003

      I bought 2 ajc papers and they didnt have any coupons in them. I was so disappointed.

    • Aziller

      I started buying the regular early edition of the AJC because of the missing coupons. This weekend I did get all the inserts. Just wish I could buy the double paper and actually get double coupons.

    • I get mine from the Huntsville Times in Alabama.

    • Paula

      I frequently do not have the coupons that are listed. In the Chattanooga Free Press I received the P&G, but there was no coupon for Gain Dish Liquid. Did anyone else have one?

      • Beth

        Yep. I did. It was in the P&G insert and was on the same sheet as the Dawn dishwashing liquid. Very top corner coupon.

    • April

      I was highly disappointed the Bham News delivered to my area of town only had one insert which was the Smart Source. I found the other two P&G and RP in my little local town paper which was only a quarter so I racked up on those.

      • Mommyq

        I was also disappointed. I called them and spent 20 minutes on hold for some unfriendly customer service rep to tell me that she didn't know why they weren't in the paper. I said, “Well, thank you so much for your help.”

    • Lcobb


      How can I submit the variations for our paper here in louisville, ky. I'm not extremely computer savvy, so you may have to spell out all the details for me.

    • Gowildwest

      I purchased 5 The Virginian Pilots today and all of them did not have coupons. :(

    • Mommyof3

      Does anyone know how to get red plum coupons if they “are not available in your area”? It looks like 45 minutes away they are sent in the mail to my in-laws, but not in my area at all! Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    • Beth

      Anyone know how I can get the Atlanta Journal Constitution in Chattanooga? The coupons look awesome, but then again, it seems like all of you folks have problems with the coupons being included…
