Before you recycle today’s paper look for a Walmart beauty flyer that has a number of coupons on the back page.  Also check to see if you have a Parade magazine in your paper, if you do there are three more coupons inside there!

My favorite is the Sally Hansen coupon, this will make nail files free in many stores that double.

      There was TWO different Smart Sources as well. One has a coupon for a free two liter of the new Dr Pepper 10 (up to $1.99) and the other a Mentos Up 2U coupon for $1/1. Circle K stores have the gum on sale for 99 cents. So look for the coupons and enjoy your free soda and gum.

    • Amym850

      Wow, the $5 off coupons are very high dollar. I wonder if this will equal a freebie somewhere???

    • Ann Bowes

      I just joined a couple days ago.  I would love to have the travel bag for the trip that I am about to take.

    • Teresa Dunlap

      I actually made sure to look at the Parade today because I had remembered seeing someone say something about it on here! I am just starting to coupon (literally just collecting, havent gone on a trip yet). But I do have a question. How or where can I find coupons for two liter drinks? like Pepsi and Coke products?

      • Emily

        Soda coupons are rare for the most part. In last week’s paper however there was a Pepsi insert, which included a coupon for a free Pepsi Max 2 liter with 2 cheetos purchase. CVS does have great sales on 2 liters I have found, like 88c a bottle, not too bad. You can also collect your points on coke products to receive free coke products. Happy couponing!

        • Brianna

          There was a FREE 2 liter Dr Pepper coupon in today’s paper.

      • There were some at Food Lion this weekend. I forget exactly what they said, but you had to buy a couple of 2L of Coke and then produce or meat and get some money off. Sorry I can’t be more specific! I didn’t get pick them up!

      • There was a Pepsico coupon sheet in last weeks paper (middle TN)  They are rare but they do come around.  I usually save Pepsi & Coke for CVS.  When it goes on sale there I will usually  use some of my extra care bucks to pay for it.

        Stick around – you’ll get used to the flow!

      • Jen

        I also am from Dunlap but dont buy much Pepsi. I have a Pepsi & diet Pepsi coupon from the ad last week

    • Daisy

      did not see the milk coupon in the parade magazine!!

    • schatzie

      guess someone stole the ones out of the paper i just bought :-(

    • Anonymous

      I guess I got lucky with the AJC because it actually had a Walmart ad(it’s usually missing) so I was able to get the extra coupons. The SS was actually very thick  and it included the dr pepper and the mentos.

      • k p

        Lucky you.  My copy of the AJC had no Smart Source insert and a very thin Red Plum insert.  It has, maybe, 8 coupons in it.  There were more coupons in the Walmart ad than there were in the Red Plum insert.

    • Kikincowgirl

      parade seems to vary in each paper as well, My sister and I get the same paper from the same place and our parades were similar but not the same.

    • Thanks for the Heads up!

    • Jgutierrez

      I got my thanks!

    • Cogdill2

      Thanks! I missed these.  I just retrieved them from my recycling bin.

      Awwww, no milk q’s in my Parade. Luckily, milk is on sale at HT this week but still – I love me some milk coupons!

    • SCLolly

      Well, I wish.  My paper only had Red Plum, no Smart Source, Walmart or Parade.

      • Suzy Payne

        I’m in Georgia.  But while on vacation and in Flordia in Sept.  Around Panama City Beach area, they only had one coupon paper, can’t remember which one of the 3 it was.  But it was listed on SS that there would be 3 that Sunday.  Thank goodness for my father n law.  I called him and he went to 2 places and got my papers.  So I found out then that not all states and areas get the same coupon booklets in their Sunday paper. =-(

    • Campbellquilts1

      smart source and parade were the only two in whitwell two sales paper.  The newsfree press told me they are told which areas get the coupons. 

    • Warnermelissa78

      I feel like I wasted my money getting this Sunday’s paper…no worth while coupons in it :(

    • brenda

      I didn’t see a Borden Milk coupon in the Parade Magazine of the paper today?

      • Honey

        Me neither. I’m in Newton, NC. Boo!!!

    • Shannon

      I also got another P&G insert with $44 in coupons!

      • Jenni P.

        What paper, and what date was on the outside edge of the insert?

    • Sherry

      Where do you get a Parada Magazine??

      • It will be in your Sunday paper with the ads.  Some papers give out the “USA Today weekend” insert though.  It just depends which your paper has in it.

    • Jilbeanie

      I have to admit that I was not very happy today to open my paper to find NO coupons…    Boo Jacksonville,NC

      • couponer**

        Me too! I am in New Bern, NC.  Whats up with that?

    • Suzy Payne

      The paper that I get from delivery on Sunday always has more coupons and some different coupons than the ones I purchase from the store.  Don’t know why, since I purchase my papers just around the corner from my home.

    • Kathycake

      I’m in Atlanta (AJC)  and luckily I did get the Smart Source, Red Plum, Walmart and Parade Magazine but no sign of a milk ad much rather than a coupon.  I’m not complaining, but I must tell you I’ve often gotten skunked with no coupons or vary sparce.  So now I check my paper before I leave the store.  Thanks to Jenny I know what inserts and how many should be there.  Funny thing when they bundle the papers for doubles they put an Early Edition paper with the Final Edition paper and the Early Edition usually has more coupons and store ads.  The Final is always missing Walgreens and other ads from various stores.  And sometimes the regular insert SS and RP have less coupons the Early Edition.  Isn’t that strange!

      • Anonymous

        I also get the AJC and I noticed that you are quite lucky if you receive all the ads, which is why I was surprised that Walmart was in mine.  I usually purchase 2 early editions and a couple of months ago I noticed that the inserts were slightly different  between the two. Someone told me to check the fold and make sure it said AJC and sure enough the skimpy ones weren’t AJC.  Now, I always check.

        • Rrbarr

          What do you mean the skimpy ones weren’t the AJC????

          • Anonymous

            They would be alot smaller and it would say Evening Edge and some people even had inserts from different city…

    • Grocerys4us

      I especially loved the Borden 1/2 gallon coupon. It is for “any” milk so I plan to use it for buttermilk if possible. Buttermilk is really expensive but my husband loves it.

      • guest

        good idea

    • Suzy Payne

      I’m going to go back through my papers bought from the store to see if there are the walmart Qs in there

    • Mommatollettof3

      No walmart ad in my paper either here in Dalton,Ga

    • Katie

      Be careful the Maybelline coupon says in fine print that it is ONLY REDEEMABLE AT WAL-MART. BOO! At least the rest are redeemable anywhere. (How is that possible anyway since it says manufacture coupon at the top??)

      • mel

        As long as there is a bar code and it says manufacture, all stores SHOULD take it, some will not but they should :)  I would still ask why if they do not.

        • Katie

          Because it says only redeem at Wal-Mart so it’s technically coupon fraud. I don’t know why it has both redeem only at Wal-mart AND manufacture coupon on it.

          • mel

            Thanks, being that I am fairly new @ this I did not know that!

          • April

            It isn’t coupon fraud if you use the coupon at a store that accepts competitor coupons, though.  For example, Harris Teeter takes all competitor coupons, so you can use it there!

    • mel

      Does anyone know where to get a good deal on AJC home delivery on Sunday paper and do they have good coupons?

      • Darla

        Mel, if you buy an AJC at the grocery store, there should be a special offer card enclosed.  You can get 13 weeks at a discounted price.  That’s the only current deal I know of.  There was a Groupon deal a few weeks ago but that has expired.

        The AJC does have good coupons, in my opinion at least. Lately, it has been cheaper to purchase them at a store ($2/paper) instead of signing up for a subscription. With that being said, there was a representative from AJC at my local Wal-Mart on Labor Day weekend offering a competitive rate. I decided to give them a test run due to the low rate, but it’s only for two months. Call the AJC and see what promotions they may have right now.

        • mel


      • Kristin

        Double issues of the AJC are $3.50 at the grocery store on Sunday morning. That includes one copy of the early edition, and the Sunday final.  Sometimes the coupons are different in those two. Also, about once a month, there are no coupon inserts so you don’t need to buy papers that week.  Just a couple of things to think about before signing up.  

        • mel


    • Got the Glade coupons in my Parade, but no Borden milk coupon.

      • 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 CashLazy.com

      No extra P&G insert in our paper…Austin, TX  American-Statesman.  ):

      • Guest

        The P&G came last week, 10/2.  Normally it only comes once or twice a month.  This month it came last weekend, and actually there will be another small one on 10/16.  There was no P&G scheduled for 10/9.  So fear not, you did not miss anything.  :-)

        • Jen_12582

          P&G Only comes the first sunday of the month.

        • Katie

          The P and G for this coming Sunday (10/16) is very thin. :( You didn’t miss it this week.

    • Christy C

      Here in jacksonville, FL Florida Times Union – no walmart & no parade Q’s, but we did receive an extra Red PLum Which has some good Q’s..
