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.

I have to say that this list is my new favorite aspect of Southern Savers.  It helps me when I make lists and is a quick guide as I get ready for shoppint trips.  So thanks to everyone that sends these in!!

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!

    • So I realize there’s no way to really contact you on this page, but you should know that your effort saves my friends and I a great deal of cash!! Thanks so much!!

    • Kim

      Any chance you can get Ohio on this list? In particular – the Columbus, Ohio area. It is south – kind of. Thanks for all you do.

    • ET

      I am in south metro ATL and my AJC has the $3 off for the Blink drops. I guess there are differences even within regions.

    • Elizabeth

      Thanks whoever did Huntsville Times in Alabama! If you ever need a week off I volunteer to fill in. I just don’t think I could handle it every week-3 kids, full time job :) Do you ever have a problem with your paper missing inserts/ads? I have to check mine every time!

    • Jenny,

      I could try to cover Raleigh if you like!

    • Jenny

      Petrina that would be great!

    • Elizabeth, I live in north Alabama and buy the Huntsville Times for my coupons and I ALWAYS have to check to make sure the inserts are in them b/c I’ve been burned way too many times. I was sadly disappointed at the values of the coupons we got this week. None of the scenarios on any of the blogs worked with what we have, but I’m trying to come up with a few more to go shopping tomorrow. I’d planned on going today but that was when I realized every single coupon value we got was lower than it was supposed to be.

    • Kim

      My mistake – I thought they were inserts of upcoming papers. Our deal scenarios, coupons and prices don’t always match yours, but they are usually close.

    • Amy in LA

      I had so many emotions this weekend over coupons! LOL! Early Sunday morning I raced to get my newspaper out the yard. (I was eager to go to CVS lol) So I came back in expecting the 2 SmartSource, the P&G, and the Redplum. Well the only one we had was the Redplum!!! :O So I went to a gas station around the corner to get another paper, thinking my carrier must have forgotten to put them in. But again, this paper didn’t have them either! I was starting to get upset, and I thought well maybe this gas station is on the same route as MY carrier and she forgot to put the inserts in ALL of them. LOL So I drove to the next neighborhood to get ANOTHER paper… THIS one had only RedPlum too! I was so upset I cried! I didn’t understand why suddenly we had no P&G or SmartSource – we always had them in our local paper before!!!

      So i came home and cried to my husband (yeah, REALLY) and then I remembered what Jenny said – get the largest newspaper you can. So I had an AHA moment and drove BACK to the gas station to get the New Orleans Times Picayune! Sure enough – they were all there!!!!

      And THEN…. This newspaper’s Red Plum insert had LOADS more coupons than the one that came in our local paper!!! So I realized that all this time… since last October when I started couponing…. I have been complaining about not getting the same coupons as everyone else… and I could’ve been getting a LOT of the same ones in the Times Picayune!!! I cried to my husband again, like I was grieving over the missed coupons! LOL I still can’t believe it!

    • Amy in LA

      Oh and Jenny, I wanted to ask… how does listing them work? Where do you even get the info from?

    • Sandra

      I also wanted to thank Kristin for putting together the Huntsville inserts!!
      And also, thank you for southernsavers.com, Jenny!!

    • just wanted to check if any of you ladies in the nashville area got the redplum keebler insert? neither me nor my sisters (who live in franklin tn) got the keebler insert…


    • Jenny,

      Let me know what I need to do and I’ll tackle it. Tks so much for all you do Jenny!

    • Jason


      I’ll try and keep up with the State unless somebody else has it covered. I saw that it was intermittently being done prior to this.

    • Catherine

      Thanks for all you and your helpers do! Btw, when I looked at the Atlanta AJC list of amended amounts, it said the Blink Tears coupon was only $1 off instead of the $3 off. However, my double paper I got Sunday at CVS had the $3 off! Score, but maybe it does differently in town versus the outlying areas???

    • Elizabeth

      Kristin, I agree, it always seems like we either don’t get the same coupons as everyone else or they are less valuable. I’m saving all the Qs I can, though, in hopes that Huntsville’s Kmart is participating in super doubles on the 16th.

    • Dianne


      I live north of Atlanta, but I was in Murfreesboro this past weekend.I bought four papers there as I usually do here because I was afraid that with all the coupon inserts this time that by the time I got back home all the papers would be gone. There were no Keebler inserts in those Tennesseans. I got home, made a dash to a Kroger and Publix, found only two papers, went to a convenience store and found two more!! Whew!! I got all the coupons I wanted. There were a couple of better values in the TN paper, but it really made me very grateful I have easy access to the AJC!!!

    • Sarah

      I can try to do the Spartanburg Herald-Journal in SC.

      Thanks for all you do!

    • Elizabeth,

      We live in Albertville and our Kmart hasn’t participated since November or December of last year. When was the last time the one in Huntsville did? I’m asking b/c if they are participating I will drive that far. Last year I racked up TONS of Glade products as well as dog treats and cleaners. I’ve been in withdrawl, because they always tell me no lol.

    • Shauna

      Amy and all others who have cried over coupons,

      My first week of couponing ever was May 17 of this year. I did great! I got a bunch of papers and matched up the coupons with sales from Kroger, Walmart and Publix. I got awesome deals and even some overages! It really was a great start. Then the next week I go out and try to get news papers and

      THERE WERE NO COUPONS!!!!!!!!!!!

      I just about went crazy. I was convinced that I had been reported to the coupon people and that they had quit delivering coupons because I had gotten such great deals. I also went to my kind and understanding husband and talked it over with him. He told me that my thoughts seemed a little extreme and asked me if I thought it was related pregnancy hormones (which my reaction definitely was). Then he went a step further and did a google search to find the coupon distribution schedule. It just so happens that THIS site was where he found the insert schedule and where he found that coupons aren’t delivered around holiday weekends. I was very relieved that I would be getting coupons more coupons the next week.

      The best part of all is that he discovered this site! Since then, I have been coming here and have found more deals and printable coupon links in such an organized and easy to use way than I have found anywhere else. This site is THE BEST for getting started. The printable coupons really helped out on those weeks where I wanted to get deals but didn’t have the coupons from the previous weeks before I had started collecting them. I LOVE how Jenny provides us with multiple options for coupon sources like the Publix booklets and the All You magazines. This really is the best site ever!

    • Elizabeth

      Kristin: Huntsville’s Kmart participated in the last 2 events that they had (one in June and one in July), so I’m keeping my fingers crossed. I asked when I was in the store the other day if they were participating, but they didn’t know. I suppose I could email corporate, but it’s probably better just to wait until the week before, so I don’t get false info and get my hopes up. I know what you mean about withdrawal, I was in there every day twice a day last time (My job is right by there, needless to say didn’t get a lot of work done that week!)

    • I could do the Houston one if no one else is… :)

    • Stephanie-new

      Hi…Do you know of a place in Chattanooga that I can get a Chattanooga Times Free Press and an AJC at the same time? Thank you!

    • Stephanie B

      Stephanie…I went out and bought 10 Chattanooga papers this week to be heartbroken by the lack of coupons :( I have been unable to find a place to purchase any papers with better coupons. Hopefully someone on here can help.

    • Cindi

      Oh my….in the past someone had covered the Roanoke Times in Virginia, and I was hoping to see what was included before I go buy them today…hopefully someone will do this again. Love this site!

    • Stephanie-new

      Stephanie B – The Chattanooga paper is awful for coupon, in my opinion. I didn’t realize how many it was “missing” until I happened to get an AJC. I guess I can just go over to GA and get one on Sundays. I’ll actually be in GA this Sunday, but I’m usually not. Surely, since we are so close to Atlanta, there is a place that sells both. I’m on a mission now!

    • Stephanie B

      Stephanie- I look at the list made for our paper and see how many are RED! We could be saving tons more money if we could get ahold of some the AJC. Let me know if you find it.
