Coupon insert preview 12/18

Posted December 15, 2011



There will be no coupons in the Sunday paper for the next TWO weeks because they are both holiday weekends. But, there is good news. The January 1, 2012 paper should be loaded with coupons. There may be up to 5 inserts that day!

Click HERE for a preview of the specific coupons we will probably have in our inserts on the weeks there are coupons.  Although some of these coupons may be a little different than the ones we receive, many will be the same.

If you buy the paper at a store on Sunday (instead of getting a subscription), make sure you buy it INSIDE the store, not from the paper boxes. You want to make sure your paper has the coupons in it before you pay, which you can't do if you are buying from the paper box.

Happy shopping everyone!

    This makes me sad :( I will miss all the cutting and organizing... I finally have a good bit of coupons to use and are ready to use them... *deep sigh* Guess I'll have to watch football instead of playing with my coupons LOL

    Jen, yes, you can freeze a well sealed/wrapped ham for two months. If it is shrink wrapped when purchased, place it in a freezer bag (you can buy very large ones now) and reduce the air in the bag as best you can. Too much longer and the ham begins to lose flavor.

    Thanks Nancy! Does a spiral ham freeze good/long time?

    mrsschizzy - they sometimes omit coupons the week before the holiday or after the holiday. In this case, it's both.

    Some 2011 insert schedules are showing a P&G on 12/25 but many are not. I think when 2011 schedules first came out, some of the dates were wrong. We'll just have to see, but my understanding is no coupons until 1/1/2012.

    ceback - N&O is paper with all the inserts. Deal right now is 13 weeks for $13.99, Sunday only. Code is SC13.99. Call the N&O subscription number to get it.

    So want to go ahead and do a sunday subscription. Questions 1 is is the N&O the better paper for coupons? Question 2 is are there any good subscription deals right now?

  • Nancy Dec 15, 2011

    mrschizzy - nope, Hannakuh begins 12/21.

    Jen, FL has their spiral sliced at $1.29 this week, which is very good for a spiral sliced. But those not sliced do get cheaper than that if that's what you're looking for.

    This weekend isn't a holiday weekend, is it? Hanukkah?

  • Jen11 Dec 15, 2011

    Does anyone know if hams will go less than 1.28 lb? The closest grocery stores I live around is Food Lion, Walmart and IGA. I am lucky enough to have parents and inlaws that cook the ham for Christmas, but I would love to buy one and put it in the freezer while I can get it at a good price. Also, does anyone know how long it would be good in the freezer for? 3-6 months or longer? Thanks!

    saro - P&G is putting out an odd schedule this year compared to years past, I'm sure you noticed it too. We were not expecting an insert Thanksgiving weekend, and up shows P&G - strange.

    So I think the rumor mill has it showing up the last Sunday of the month (12/25) but January 1st will work with their lousy habit of one month expiration dates too :(
