Here are the differences in the coupon inserts you received Sunday 1/17.

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. There are variations every week.

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.

      I quickly picked up my 4 copies of the newspaper The State – Columbia and found no coupon inserts!…bought it in Florence, SC. I was so disappointed!

    • bridget

      I got the Raleigh N&O and the Huggies coupons were different from the preview – they were $3/2 instead of $1/1 qs. With the GM deal which is happening right now at HT, I also have realized that the Old El Paso coupons we got a few weeks ago were different; they are off of heat and serve sides, instead of any OEP.

    • Melissa

      I only got P&G in Raleigh News and Observer for 1/17. Did I miss an insert?


      • JenGC

        Yes. There was 2 inserts. P&G and Smart Source. Sorry you missed one! That always disappoints me when I miss one.

    • Foxfunds

      Wow, that Chattanooga paper is just sad sad sad… I did buy a few for the P&G’s, but I got my SS inserts online. Scored some cheap frozen veggies this week with the Bird’s Eye Steamfresh Q’s!! Thanks for keeping us in the loop Jenny, and for the previews of the next week – knowing what is coming in the next set of inserts makes it easy to figure out what to order ahead of time.

      • Foxfunds, Can you please explain step by step how to go about getting the SS inserts online. That is a new concept to me. I buy the St. Pete Times and they only had the PG insert for 1/17/10 so I missed all of the SS for this week.

      • Bethany

        Please share how you get better coupons than from the Chatt Times Free Press. I’m getting extremely disappointed with that paper and I can’t find a bigger one in town.

    • JenGC

      At our Krogers, they continue to sell the Sunday paper until it is gone. They discount them at $1 (which is what I pay for them on Sunday at Dollar Tree) but I may go by there to get a few more. It’s fun to get Sunday coupons on Thursday! lol

    • Jen

      I have the same question as above. I am new to all of this. I get all the online coupons I can find, but not the coupon booklets. I am in Chattanooga area. Does the Chattanooga Times Free Press have the inserts?

      • michelle

        Yes, it does,but all the coupons listed on Southern savers may not be in it.
        I have been buying a couple of the Chatta. Times free press and then ordering the coupons that I need from couponsthingsbydede.com which I saw posted on a comment somewhere on southern savers.

    • SUSAN

      fyi….you can get 10 dollars off a new pair of jeans….from special K website….look under promotions

    • I didn’t get SS from 1/17 either. I get the Charlotte Observer and they weren’t in either of the ones I got. I did get P&G though.

    • Kristin

      For those of us in Chattanooga– I just got off the phone with the AJC folks and she gave me a list of GA counties that you can find a copy of the AJC Sunday paper in the following counties: Barton, Floyd, Cherokee, Forsythe, and Hall. Anyone interrested in getting a pick-up group started?

    • Lauri

      I recently ordered the Atlanta Journal and have had nothing but problems getting it delivered via mail. The only paper I’ve received only had 1 insert. Has anyone else had any problems ordering via mail?

      Thanks for any comments/suggestions/help.
