How many coupons in the Sunday paper?

Posted July 15

Red Plum coupons insert

How many coupon inserts will we have in the Sunday paper on July 16, 2017?

There should be 1 RedPlum insert in the paper this weekend. But that's better than none!

You can see a preview each week by Friday of many of the coupons we will get at We won't receive 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!

    SWBJFB re fewer coupons in paper. I think manufacturers are trying to get people to use digital coupons and online ones they print at home instead of the newspaper coupons. I think they are trying to get rid of the newspaper ones. We'll have to see, but it definitely looks that way to me.

    Wonder why we are getting fewer coupons from the paper. Getting less than we did a year ago.
