How many papers? Week of 4/6/14

Posts on Mashup Mom may contain affiliate links. Please see disclosure and disclaimer here.

The week of 4/6/14, we’re expecting: One Red Plum and one SmartSource. *** I do not know if the Sunday Tribune will still be sold for $1.00 at Dollar Tree and Menards this week following their price jump announcement. I’ll check Dollar Tree tomorrow and report back!

Given the price jump, I have a couple of new places to recommend for whole inserts and individual coupons this week.

  1. If you’re looking for whole inserts, try Insert Insanity.
  2. For individual coupons, try Wiz Clipz. Order by noon Eastern Time and they will ship the same day, seven days a week.  Order after noon Eastern Time, they will ship the following day.

Use this as a general guide, because coupons and values vary regionally. This means that sometimes our papers will not include one or more of the coupons listed, or that one area will get one $ amount on their coupons, we will get another. In Chicagoland, the Chicago Tribune has the most coupons in it — even if the Sun-Times, or the DuPage Daily Herald, or the other smaller papers have the same inserts, they’re thinner. (Occasionally, the Sun-Times will contain a coupon not found in the Trib, but it’s rare.) If you are outside Chicagoland, you will want to pick up the largest-circulation paper in your area.

So, what looks good to me?

  • Alexia .55/1 Frozen Product (5/18/14) SS 4/6. Stack with the $1.00/1 Whole Foods coupon here to save $1.55 off one. When I bought organic fries there this past week, they were on sale for $2.69, but I’m not sure how long the sale runs.
  • B1G1 Littlest Pet Shop 2pack (up to $5.99) SS 4/6. Easter Baskets, people. There are a bunch of other toy and game coupons for Easter as well.
  • Bic $3/1 Flex 4, Flex 3, comfort 3 advance, Hybrid advance 3 or Hybrid advance 4 razor ets (5/3) SS 4/6 and Bic $3/1 Soleil disposable razor ets (5/3) SS 4/6. Save for an Ultra Foods sale.

So how many?

There are some nice coupons for Easter baking and actually a good collection of food coupons this week. I’m thinking four.

Not getting inserts in your paper?

The Tribune is no longer including inserts in some papers, the further you get from the city — and sometimes people in Chicago and the southern burbs are also missing one or both inserts in both delivered and purchased papers. This decision is made by the inserts — they’ll decide not to distribute in certain ZIP codes, or only to distribute a certain number in given areas, so not all papers have them.

  1. If you’re looking for whole inserts, try Insert Insanity.
  2. For individual coupons, try Wiz Clipz.
  3. Also check out the Mashup Mom Coupon Trading Group on Facebook!

These are also good places to check out if you just want a lot of a single coupon. It can be more cost effective than buying multiple papers.
