Coupon Insert Variations

Did you know that every area and paper gets different coupons?  This is one of the biggest things that can frustrate couponers… we all want the great coupon and only a few select areas got it.  Each week volunteers send in their insert lists so to  show exactly what came in your area.  I take these and put them into the coupon database.  In turn you can then have shopping lists that only show the coupons in your area!! 

To make your shopping list specific to you:

  1. Login or Create an Account for Southern Savers (this lets you save your list and tailors things to you).
  2. Edit your profile to include what stores you have and what paper you get.  If your paper is not listed then pick the city closest to you (or think about volunteering to get your area covered!).
  3. When you make a shopping list click the “Only Locally Available” button at the top.

Any coupons that were not in your area will magically disappear!

I need help!

These are all done by a volunteer submitting them.  There are a few papers we used to get and don’t currently have a volunteer for, plus I would love to see even more areas covered!  If you are up for the task it’s very easy, email me at jenny@southernsavers.com and let me know what paper you get!

      I saw some items listed in Red for my newspaper that I did get, Am I not understanding the list?

      • What newspaper do you get? It sounds like you are understanding, red should mean that you didn’t get it. Sounds like we need to double our list!

      “The Jackson Sun” is a Jackson, TN Paper, not Jackson Mississippi. That is the Clarion-Ledger. Just thought it might be helpful for those looking for the info. (I live in Jackson MS)

      I had no idea! Thanks for sharing!

      Actually… well, I’ve made an account and chosen the newspaper I get. I don’t really understand how to make a list though, and I don’t see anything like your picture above for Step 3. Help?
