      :( No HammerMill Q in the AJC today.

      • ireneY

        What's going on?!! I thought the metro papers were supposed to get the good stuff. We are missing the $1 Quaker oatmeal too!

    • Corey

      No hammermill Q in Indy either. Paper is $1 after rebate. Not like it matters, I never pay for anything at Staples anyways :D

    • Anna

      Ooh I got that one today in Tampa, woohoo :).

    • Mmslattery

      Where is the Hammermill coupon? Somewhere other than the regular coupon inserts, perhaps?

    • Banjo7

      What is SS? Cna't find coupon in paper.

      • Ana Maria S.

        Smart Source=SS is the name of one of the coupon inserts in the Sunday paper.

    • Ana Maria S.

      I bought both the Asheville Citizen Times and the Charlotte Observer…not in either :( Oh well.

      • Chele17rene

        I bought both too,thanks for saving me time looking!

    • Shawna

      Couldn't find that coupon either.

    • Nancybgood14

      oh man boo i missed this info.

    • Ashley

      South FL must be lucky this time :) I got this one…This will be my first trip to Staples, I am excited about the rebate!

    • it's not in the Knoxville paper either

    • macboy

      I haven't read my Sunday paper yet (Orlando Sentinel), so I don't know if I have the coupon. However, does anyone know how the “2 per household” thing works? I bought this paper with a rebate earlier in the year. Is this rebate “2 per household” per year? Or perhaps per sale? Or every three months? This paper tends to go on sale at Staples via rebate very often.

      • Kathryn

        Macboy – every week is a different rebate deal!!

        • macboy

          Yay. I do have the coupon and glad to know that I can apply for rebates per each sale.

      • It is in the Orlando Sentinel :)

    • tigergrl

      Is everyone finding this coupon in the flyer or somewhere else in the paper! I have The State out of Columbia, SC and don't see it offhand. Any help would be great!!

      • Dixiesc

        Not in my State either

    • Bst Pierre

      I don't have the coupon either. Is it printable somewhere? Wilm. NC.

    • Jayna

      This is funny. It almost looks like you're promoting making your own paper money. “Paper money maker.”

      Ha ha!

      • Cindyrella

        Ha. I thought the same thing. You know how you glance over a page and something catches your eye? Well, I just knew I'd seen 'paper money' somewhere on the home page – it took me a little while to find it again. :)

    • Just wondering: if I took advantage of the Hammerhill Paper rebate that was valid a couple of weeks ago at Staples (when the paper ended up one cent after rebate) will I be able to use this rebate? I wasn't sure if the rebates were mutually exclusive.

      • Kt97

        Yes. Each week a new rebate offer number is created.

    • Logan1976

      Where is the $2 hammermill coupon found? Thanks

    • Kmd20ts

      Not in in the Birmingham paper either. boohoo

    • Cadycrew

      Where in the paper was the coupon?

    • Jordan

      For those of you having trouble finding it, it was two pages from the back page of the SS insert. On the same page as a Q for crunchmaster crackers. But from the comments, I think it must have been a regional thing.

      • Pam

        I must have a different SS than you. No crunchmaster crackers in mine!

      • Jenni

        What paper did you buy? This is definitely regional.

        • Jordan

          The Lakeland Ledger (Central FL.). I saw from the other comments that people in S. Fla., Tampa, and Orlando also found the coupon so I'm thinking maybe it was just in Florida . . .

    • Aurelia

      It wasn't in the Charleston, SC Q's either.

    • Pam

      The ad is $1 after rebate, and I saw no coupon in SS. I take the State newspaper, looked everywhere but saw no $2 off coupon. Frustrating!

    • Cristy

      not in the Herald in Rock Hill SC

    • No coupon in AJC / Gwinnett.

    • Jane

      None in Nashville TN either

    • Jenni

      Not in the Greenville News. No surprise there, though. We almost always get the lesser value coupons, or no coupons at all when it come to regional ones. Boo.

    • Mariannakeeth

      Not in the Fayetteville or Raleigh paper – oh well – saves me a trip out today ;)

    • Cwalkermarie

      i'm ordering the 2/1 Q's off ebay since i too didn't get them.

    • Jordan

      Just a head's up . . . I just went to Staples and tried to use the coupon and they wouldn't accept it b/c the paper is a rebate deal. They said I couldn't use the coupon because with the rebate, it would be a “negative amount.” I wasn't sure if this was a Staples policy (I don't frequent there too much) since they make out in this deal too: they will be reimbursed $2.00 instead of just making $1.00 off of me. But when I got back to the car I looked at the coupon and it says “may not be combined with any other discount.” So I'm assuming that is why they wouldn't take it. I just wanted to let everyone know in case they were planning on trying the deal . . . of course, you may find your Staples more willing to accept it.

      • CarolinaGirl80

        I was able to use my coupons and do the rebate without no issues.

    • pakou

      Just a thought, I know it is a little more work, but it would be a lot of help to post a photo of the coupon and ad for us visual people.

    • ac4mail

      Where is this coupon? Not in the Staples Flyer.
