How many papers? Week of 6/22/14

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

The week of 6/22/14, we’re expecting: One SmartSource and one Red Plum. See the full list at Coupon Previews.

  • Use this as a general guide, because coupons and values vary regionally. 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 overall you’ll find many more in the Trib.) If you are outside Chicagoland, you will want to buy the largest-circulation paper in your area.
  • In IL-Chicagoland, you can pick up the early edition of the Sunday Chicago Tribune on Saturday morning for $1.00 at Menards or Dollar Tree.
  • Be sure to check to make sure that the inserts are in there before purchasing — since they are no longer in plastic bags, they’re falling out, not making it in, or getting swiped.
  • Check out the Mashup Mom Coupon Trading Group on Facebook if you’re looking for different coupons or have some you want to trade.
  • Places to pick up additional coupons.

So, what looks good to me?

  • Blink $2/1 tears or geltears (7/28). This is sometimes an ECB deal at CVS.
  • Bull’s Eye $1/2 bbq sauce 17.5oz+ (7/20). Currently $1.50 at Jewel, but goes under $1.00 elsewhere.
  • Grey Poupon $1/1 mustard bottle or jar 8oz+ (7/20).
  • insync $5/1 natural probiotic (9/30). Sometimes a drugstore deal.
  • Kikkoman $1/2 sauces dnd (9/30).
  • Heinz $.25/1 tomato ketchup 13oz+ (8/10).
  • Best Foods $1/1 product 16.5oz+ (7/20). (By us this should be Hellmann’s.)
  • Clear $2.50/1 scalp & hair product ets (7/20)
  • Red Vines $.50/1 fruit vines 5oz or 10oz, cherry or strawberry (8/17).

So how many?

What is it, condiment week? lol — I’m not very excited about these, and probably 2 for my needs. If you’re a big drugstore shopper, you may want more.

    I just got today a bill from Tribune for $37.44 for the next 2 years ( my Groupon order, I assume) and it lists that it started on 6/8. I have not received the paper yet and they are sending me a bill!?! Plus, I already paid for the Groupon!
    Did that happen to anyone else?

      Yes! I got a bill for 1yr! I put a msg on their client service FB page since their customer service was closed. I have gotten my paper the last 2 weeks.

        I had the same thing. I am not sure what is worse these days — groupon customer service or tribune customer service. Have you got a response from anybody?

          They responded to my FB page post, requested my address via PM so they can look into it. Hoping to hear back soon!
