Lots of coupons in Sunday, 10/4 paper!

Posted October 1, 2015

Red Plum coupons insert

How many coupon inserts will we receive on Sunday in the paper? There should be 4 inserts including 2 SmartSource and 2 Redplum!

I hope we get the $1/1 King Arthur flour coupon!

To see the coupon preview for Sunday, 10/4 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.

Happy shopping everyone!

    corbin04 - I was thinking you had home delivery for some reason. Vlynn is totally right. If you buy them at the store or from the box, you may not get the coupon inserts if they have run out filling the home delivery papers first. Calling the N&O if you did not get coupons in the store bought papers will do you no good. Be sure to buy in the store next time and look through the paper before buying so you know if you got all the expected inserts. And you may want to look into home delivery for at least one of your Sunday papers. I just got mine renewed for $1.20 per week including tax.

    Ty ladies. I havent had any problems until recently the past couple months if i bought 3 papers i might be missing A insert out of the three but this time since it was all three papers it made me think we didnt get them in this area. Bummer. I have been buying papers from their faithfully the past 2 yrs every Sunday with no issues until recently. Weird. Guess i need a plan b. Ty Faye, i will call them in the future.

    corbin04 re missing coupon inserts: When you buy papers out of the boxes or in the stores, you are not guaranteed the coupon inserts. They are supposed to be provided for home delivery first, and then if they have enough they go in the other papers until they run out. Or at least this is what I've been told in the past by N&O people :-)

    corbin04 - you are not the only one. As Raesmom posted, another reader posted that she only got 2 inserts last week. I got 3 in the 40/42 area, though. I seem to recall that the other reader was in Clayton as well, although I am not positive. If so, there may have been an issue with the 3rd insert getting to certain areas. Definitely call the N&O when that happens in the future. They may redeliver if you call early enough on Sunday morning or at least give you a credit for an incomplete paper.

    Hey Corbin04~I got a paper last week that had 3 one RP, one SS, and one P&G. There was someone on the blog that noted they only received a one page Pantene insert with a few q's and none of the above referenced inserts at all. Did you call the N&O?

    Hey Faye, in regards to last weeks, i dont know if i looked correctly but i thought it said we were getting 3 but i bought 3 papers last sunday in clayton and all 3 only had 2 in them-no red plum. Was i the only one with the bad fortune?!?
