Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 9/25.

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.

    • Anonymous

      Thanks Michelle from Montgomery!

    • GMom

      I know that the red in the coupon insert variation means the coupon is not in the insert, but what is the red “R” in the coupon database mean? I thought it also means I don’t have it, but I’m looking at an insert and a coupon with a red “R” is in there.

    • I didnt get any coupons in the Chattanooga Times, TN.

    • Lauren

      There was no Red Plum ad in my paper in Greenville, SC.

    • I also noticed that in my city there are different coupons in identical insert depending on what side of the town coupons come from. I have co-workers bring me their unused coupons, and I noticed this to my surprise.

    • Lacats

      I noticed you can’t click on some papers, what does this mean?

      • Lacats

        Never mind, I saw that was last week’s!

    • Ckjohnson

      No P and G insert in Chattanooga Times-Free Press today.

    • Jmusc2001

      I get my coupons in the mail for New American Marketing.  I notice sometimes that I don’t have some coupons and am not sure what variations to look at. Any ideas?

    • Jessica5757
