Click on the paper near you to see what coupons were actually in the inserts around the South East. Check out the differences to really get an idea of what paper is the best to buy. There are variations every week.

As folks send me the lists I will update with links so check back if your paper is not up yet.

If you haven’t seen your paper covered in a while and would like to cover it please email me. It’s not a hard job honest!

A few ways to use these lists:

  1. 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 inserts and keep it with your inserts to quickly know if you have that coupon.
  3. A way to decide what paper is the best paper in your area to buy.

      What do you have to do to “cover” your paper? I might be able to do mine if it really is easy…

    • caitlin

      Does anyone know what the color codes are?

    • Freedom Ellis

      Blue = Change in Value from the Preview (fire the crystal ball person)
      Green = New/Not in the Insert Preview (fire the crystal ball person’s assistant, too)
      Red = We didn’t get ‘em (fire multiple people just because)

    • Monique

      I have one for Huntsville, AL, if anyone can use it.

    • Caitlin here is the basic color codes but if you look at knoxville news she has added another code and good comments lol

      Red= Not in this Insert
      Blue= Not in Preview but in this insert (or value change from Preview)

    • This might not be the right place to ask, but does anyone know if the AJC still has the $1.00 off sunday’s paper? I couldn’t find it recently.

    • SM

      Diane someone posted that they called and AJC said the promotion is over. I think it was in the Publix comments yesterday.

    • Can someone tell me the best place in Atlanta near Smyrna to pick up papers? I’ll be up there this weekend and can’t wait to get a bigger paper!

      #4 Monique-

      In your Huntsville Times last weekend, did you get all 3 SS coupon inserts? My paper didn’t have the General Mills insert and I wondered if it was a regional thing or if they just forgot to put one in.


    • Emily

      For those of you in the Durham, NC area, The Herald-Sun always has all inserts. I noticed that they aren’t on the list for NC, but they’re a good paper to grab if you’re east of Durham and can’t find the N&O anywhere.

    • Lyndsey

      The Tennessean in the Nashville area seems to have been different in different areas of Nashville. I have one from Bellevue, Antioch and Franklin and each are different.

      #9 Kellie-

      Hi! I did get all 3 SS coupon inserts. The General Mills had all the coupons with only 4 variations in amounts off. Do you have a subscription? It seems like when I buy off the rack the inserts vary widely (and wildy!). :-)


    • Lyndsey- that is SO true!! I have noticed that the Tennessean has different variations depending on the area you buy it in. Weird.

    • Jenny, you recommended going to the site if I didn’t receive an insert. Do you have those web sites?

    • Brittany

      thank you soooo very much for teaching me how to save so much money!!! i live in montgomery, al and was missing several valuable coupons (the ones in red obviously). How do i order them off the websites? i cant figure it out but i have a whole list of “reds” to submit for order when I figure out how! thank you thank you thank you!!!
