How many coupons in the Sunday paper?

Posted April 6

Red Plum coupons insert

How many coupon inserts will we have in the Sunday paper on April 9, 2017?

There should be 3 total inserts including 1 SmartSource insert and 2 Redplum inserts in the Sunday paper!

You should be able to see a preview of many of the coupons we will get by Friday at We won't get all the same coupons, but we will get many of the same ones.

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!

    skkdouble - I have been told that they fill the subscriber papers first with inserts and then they run out filling the non-subscriber papers. Not sure how they determine which areas get shorted the inserts though. I'll see what I can find out. It is unfortunate to find out you didn't receive all the coupons after you have paid for a paper just so you can get the coupons. Are there some specific coupons from that insert you were hoping to get? Send me an e-mail to and I can see if I have them.

    I was just wondering if anyone had an issue not getting the P&G insert this past week? I ran in Walgreen's and bought my papers and didn't look to see if there were 3 inserts. Only had 2. Took the papers back to exchange and all the papers they had left were the same way. So she just gave me a few extra papers. I called N&o and she said Holly Springs didn't get that insert. I thought that was very weird. Don't know if there is a way to get the insert?
