Q&A- Is my Sunday insert missing coupons?

Question:Do you have any idea why the Smart Source that you receive and the one that I receive from the Idaho Statesman would differ in what coupons they have? I searched my Smart Source coupon books (several of them in fact just to make sure) and could never find the coupon for $4 off of the Schick razor that you bought at Walgreens. I am very confused by this and have been before as this isn’t the first time I haven’t been able to find a coupon in the same insert that you had mentioned.

Answer: Not all areas get the same inserts.  For example today I only got one insert the Smart Source.  But someone in New York who got the Smart Source may have the same insert BUT with more or less coupons than mine.  As far as I can tell  my two local papers they get the same inserts, and the same coupons in those inserts.  But I preview the master insert list…….and many of those coupons are not in my local inserts.   I have readers all over so I go ahead and list coupons that will be in other areas inserts, even if they are not in mine.  So to answer the question above I personal did not get the $4 Schick razor coupon, it was not in my insert but it WAS in many other inserts across the USA.

  1. The differences in coupons is SO frusrating for me! I live in one of the poorest cities in the country, and our coupons are always less (sometimes $3 per item!) than other cities. I find this out when I visit the cities and get the Sunday papers. Do you know if there is there any way to contact the companies to get this changed?

  2. I do not know how to change it? Wish I had a better answer

  3. I live in Dallas-Ft Worth and the Dallas Morning News and Fort Worth Star Telegram almost ALWAYS get different coupons in them. I ate it!

  4. It gets worse! Around here it seems that the same inserts, in the same paper, will change later in the week. We have a box here that sells the Sunday edition all week, and when I went to get a second copy of it last week, there were no more Dove coupons to be had, even though the rest of the insert was present! Now, it’s possible that someone rifled through and stole all the Dove pages from the inserts, but since the stack didn’t look rifled (until I was done, LOL), I would guess they just ran out of that page by the end of the production run.

  5. Strange. I only received a Red Plum insert this weekend?!?!?

  6. I was SO dissapointed not to get teh razor coupon too!! I wish they were ALL the same!
