How many papers? Week of 6/8/14

The week of 6/8/14, we’re expecting: One SmartSource. 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?

  • Arm & Hammer $3/2 liquid, powder or single-use laundry detergents (7/5). For whatever reason, A&H often chooses to only put their coupons in the Sun-Times, so we’ll have to see.
  • Band-Aid $.75/2 adhesive bandage products ets (7/20).
  • Clif $.50/1 mojo bar single or multi-pack (11/2).
  • House Foods $1/2 premium tofu dnd (7/31).
  • Nature Valley $.50/1 granola bars 5ct+, granola thins, soft-baked oatmeal squares or breakfast biscuits (8/2).
  • Schick $4/1 hydro razor excludes disposables (7/20) — plus more Schick coupons. Useful when CVS does the spend $25 get $10 ECB deals.
  • Tyson $1/1 grilled & ready product (9/8). Stack with the $1.50/2 Target coupon here.
  • Yoplait $.50/8 cups (8/2). Haven’t seen these in a while.

So, how many?

This is a small week. I’m probably only getting two for my own family’s needs.

    Got the groupon tribune delivered this week – yah!! Oh wait no, all the inserts and ads were missing so I have to wait until tomorrow to get it re delivered..

      Kerri, when you bought the Groupon did you have to do anything else on Tribune site? Or it just went with the address you entered on Groupon? Thanks.

      • Kerri says

        You don’t have to do anything else. They will send it to the address that you entered when you check out. I was a little worried earlier tho, because I got an email saying my groupon expired, but I could use the paid amount towards a subscription. Today was the first day I got it and I ordered about 3 weeks ago.

        • Outlander says

          Thanks. That’s why I was worried too. :)
          I’m on vacation now, so I have no idea if it came today. I hope it did!

    My Groupon was cancelled :( I didn’t think I actually broke any rules. I do get one paper delivered in my name. So I signed up with the Groupon to give the subscription to my husband (different last name). But I guess it’s one per household. I even tried the whole Unit #2. It seems silly. If the Tribune wants to keep readers and offers a group on why not give it to everyone who wants one. I’m NOT going to order one another one so now no-one gets my money!!
