How many coupons in the Sunday paper?

Posted September 10, 2016

Red Plum coupons insert

How many coupon inserts will we have in the Sunday paper on September 11, 2016?

We should have FOUR total inserts including 2 RedPlum inserts and 2 SmartSource inserts!

To see the coupon preview for Sunday, head to We won't get all the same coupons as the ones that are listed here, but most will be the same.

If you buy the paper at a store on Sunday (instead of getting a subscription delivered to your home), make sure you look inside the paper before you buy it so you can see that the coupons are in there. You will find that sometimes, the papers at the stores and in the paper boxes do not have coupons. Sometimes the newspaper runs out of coupon inserts and because the home delivery papers are the first to get the coupons, the papers that go to the stores do not always have all the coupons.

And if you are looking for somewhere to donate your expired manufacturer coupons, our US troops overseas can use them at many on-base commissaries after they have expired. Find out where to send them at

Happy shopping everyone!

    1SPECIALK re newspaper inserts: did the papers come from a newspaper box or were they delivered to your house? The home delivery papers get the coupons first, then the leftovers are used to fill the editions that go to the newspaper boxes and stores. Usually, they have enough to fill all, but sometimes they run out of an insert or all of them and some papers are short changed. That's why you have to check if you are buying store papers because they might have only 1 or no coupon inserts at all! You can't really check the box ones, so it's the luck of the draw.

    I went through several newspapers and the most coupons I had this week were 3 inserts, 2 Redplum inserts and 1, Smartsource. Anyone else have the same issue?
