Coupon insert preview 7/17

Posted July 14, 2011

There will be 1 coupon section this Sunday, 10/17 - a SmartSource section.

Click HERE for a preview of the specific coupons we will probably have in our inserts.  Although some of these coupons may be a little different than the ones we receive, most will be the same.  There should be some good coupons for Huggies and Pull-Ups as well as a number of cereal coupons,

    Just an FYI, the P.F. Chang's is still giving away lettuce wraps on their facebook page! I plan on enjoying mine tomorrow!

    Wow, you really are UP there! Yes, too many carriers are losing money with the paper boxes and theft. And apparently they're responsible for the profit/loss in those boxes :(

    I suspect that it won't be long before any box that is a theft issue will be left empty and only stores will carry the papers. I know some of the drug stores now have them BEHIND the counters because people pick one up, throw it in their cart on the way into the store and then strip the coupons out and dump the paper somewhere in the store!

    How pathetic is that?!

    Nancy all of my little family is in Roxboro :( The N&O is the closest paper that carries coupons and I have to drive 13 miles to the N&O box at Lowes Foods to get one, and it's usually hit or miss. Sometimes there are no papers there at all. The carrier said that too many people have been stealing them and she doesn't know how much longer she will even deliver them to Roxboro. It's frustrating. I think if that *show* would disappear, some of these dishonest couponers would too. The N&O doesn't deliver out here because I live in the sticks! I'm at Mayo lake, almost in Virginia. I still manage to coupon pretty well though with the papers I am able to get and all of the printable coupons. I wish the Herald Sun still carried coupons, I used to subscribe to them until the removed the inserts.

    thecrazyclacks - the SS insert this coming Sunday isn't that great either if you look at what's expected to be in it :(

    Some weeks are like that - I hate that you're not close to getting the paper though! Do you have any family or friends who can save theirs for you if they don't clip them all? That's a great way to get extra coupons if you can!

    I think I will skip buying papers this week. I hate paying $2.00 for each N&O (that I have to drive 13 miles to get on Sunday) just for 1 insert. I have a healthy pantry and freezer at the moment anyway and it's nice to be able to take a break from time to time :)

    The insert schedule for Red Plum for the year is here:

    The insert schedule for Smart Source for the year is here:

    As far as P&G, they no longer show a schedule and the only way to be sure when it's coming out is by going directly to their site.

    They're getting stingy with their inserts. can it be that stupid show is making them get that way?

  • queene01 Jul 14, 2011

    Serenity- I heard the same thing so I buy mine as well and check before I pay! If Faye says 1 insert, I make sure there's one :)

    If your home delivered paper did not get the inserts it should have, call immediately to circulation department and tell them you want the inserts delivered. I've had to do that with the N&O a couple times - they redelivered, to my door, on Sunday and they delivered an entire paper, not just the inserts.

    This past Sunday I had SS & Red Plum, but I have chosen to buy my paper from Walgreens ($1.39) on Sundays. Before I pay for it, I check to see if the inserts are there. I've heard horror stories about home deliveries with no inserts. Now that would just make me mad.
