Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 9/18.

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.

      It sucks that there are always so many missing from the Asheville Citizen-Times.  What can you do though?

      • Kari

        Get the Charlotte…I know it is 25 cent more but it is usually worth it!  To many times i have gotten the Asheville with no coupons so now I just get the Charlotte and in comparison their q’s are better!

    • MrsWillis

      It looks like the Huntsville Times RP and SS are the same as Montgomery Advertiser. Just FYI.

    • Rixie

      Naples Daily News should be up there under Florida

      Still can’t believe it I just got a $827.89 iPad2 for only $103.37 and my mom got a $1499.99 HTV for only $251.92, they are both coming with USPS tomorrow. I would be an idiot to ever pay full retail prîces at places like Walmart or Bestbuy. I sold a 37″ HTV to my boss for $600 that I only paid $78.24 for. I use http://jmb.tw/52bf

      The Birmingham News this past Sunday had NO coupons. I was very disappointed.Because of this I am wondering if I should try again. I ended up spending 3.50 , 2 papers and neither of them had anything. :(

    • Mary

      Hi IF you buy the sunday paper today (Wed.) will there be coupons in it? I don’t want to buy it if they are not in there. Thanks!

      wooow my best friend’s mom makes $77 an hour on the computer. she has been out of job for 9 months but last month her check was $7487 just working on the computer for a few hours. read about it here CashDone.com

    • I currently live in Alabama and the only paper around here is the Birmingham News. This past weekend it had NOTHING. And the previous weeks it only had 1 Smart Source. Does anyone else get Bham papers that actually have coupons?

    • Ps59

      I take the Birmingham News and in my area Columbiana, there were SS and RP in a neighboring city, Childersburg, there were non. Call your carrier and the News and complain. if it happens again call again, call a third time before you cancel. Our carrier places papers in boxes and someone has been steeling all the inserts out of paper boxes!

    • Connie

      Do you know if there is other paper in Katy TX different that Houston Chronicle.

      • Lisa Draven

        The Katy times is a neighborhood paper and usually has the same ones. But this weekend had none! I was so disappointed! I usually pick up what’s left on Thursdays. Oh well

      I’m confused about this list.  I get the Macon Telegraph in Georgia, but the coupon matchups you do each week do not always match our coupon inserts.  So, each week I write down every coupon that is in each of my inserts, and put it in front of those coupon inserts in my expandable file.  My problem is if it isn’t the same as yyours, I end up flipping through 12 slots reading over my list of coupons for each week to see if I can find it.  Does anyone have an easier way, or know of someone who does the matchups for the Macon, GA area?
