Sunday Newspaper Inserts

There are three main Inserts that comes in the Sunday paper. They are:

  • (SmartsourceSS)
  • Red Plum (RP)
  • Proctor &Gamble (P&G)

Printable Coupons

There are lots of sites out there that you can find on the internet that has coupons that can be printed out and used in the store. Most places will only allow you to print out two coupons per IP address. That means each computer has an IP address so that it’s easily identifiable. There are a few places that will only allow you to print one coupon per computer.

It’s ILLEGAL  to make copies of any coupons. So please keep that in mind when gathering coupons.

Mobile coupons 

There are apps that will allow you to do your shopping first and redeem cash savings after. (Ibotta, Checkout51, and Cartwheel, etc)

Digital Coupons 

These coupons are loaded onto your loyalty cards from your smartphone or computer.  Some grocery stores have these cards like Kroger and publix. So check with your local grocery stores to see if they have loyalty cards. Also, other stores like Dollar General uses digital coupons by using your phone number. Check with all your favorite stores so you know you’re not passing up on any coupons.

Catalina Coupons 

These coupons are printed out at the register after you checkout. Look for the machine sitting next to the register. This receipt can be used on a future purchase. These coupons can be either a manufacturer or store coupon.


These coupons are already on the item in the store. Check your items carefully or you could miss these.


Red Smartsource  machines found in most stores. You can identify this machine by the red blinking lights. It will usually be sitting right next to the product.


Coupon pads located in stores to promote products.

Check all magazines you come across. You can find coupons in them.  I always find them in Better homes and Gardens.
