I live in Middle Tennessee, so the paper I would get for the coupon inserts is the Nashville Tennesseean. We do not have a subscription, so I usually get it at a box or WalMart. This past Sunday, there *should* have been a Smart Source and a Redplum insert in each paper, correct? I went through a pretty good stack of papers at Walmart and every one was missing the Redplum. Is there anything I can do when my paper doesn't have all the coupons it's supposed to have, or is there a reason our paper may not have had the Redplum? I have been out of the coupon-clipping loop for a year or so, but I KNOW that I have used Redplum inserts in the past. Also -- what ever happened to the Valassis inserts, and why do some of the inserts differ by region? TIA for your help!

ETA: So this last Sunday (7/24) there *should* have been a SS and RP in the paper, correct? Well, I bought one Tennessean @ Walmart (after looking through several papers to see what inserts were there), and one at the box outside Kroger. Neither vendor's papers had the RedPlum! Grrr....so frustrated! So today I called their customer service, and the girl said she only handles home delivery and gave me another number, which got me a recording directed at 'sellers' who manage single paper distribution. I left my name and number but not really hopeful about this. Can *anyone* who gets the Tennessean tell me if you had a RedPlum insert? I want to be 'armed' with info in case they tell me incorrectly that the Tennessean doesn't carry RP at all anymore. This mama is getting frustrated. I don't get it, because on another site where you can get the Q previews per city paper, it always lists the RP in the Tennessean on the weeks they come out. TIA for your help!

Some areas have stopped carrying the Red plum and/or the SmartSource. I think Vlassis became Red Plum.

Thanks for the heads up, I think I will call the Tennesseean and see if there is someone who can tell me for sure. Smile I don't want buy multiple copies of a paper if the coupons I expect will never be there!

Hi there, I live in East Tennessee and get the Knox News and they always have both inserts.. Ive seen people "mine" for coupons at the stores. I usually get mine at Walgreens or Kroger and don't usually have issues, I just check mine to make sure everything is in there.

Be careful of home delivery too! We are located in a spot where they deem, " not good enough for coupons" or at least not all of them! Mad If I want good coupons or ALL of what is supposed to be in there I have to buy a bigger city's paper like ST. Louis post dispatch. Wink

We live in a fairly small town where there are two local papers that come twice-weekly - one free, and one for a paid subscription. They both have the ad circulars for most of the chain and local grocery stores, but not the coupons like redplum and smartsource. That's why I have to get the Tennesseean out of Nashville. I think I've pretty much always gotten it from our Walgreens or a box outside a grocery store - but now Walgreens isn't carrying it anymore, and lots of the Tennesseean boxes outside other stores are disappearing as well! Good thing I have online trading options - looks like I will be needing this site more than ever!!!!

There are several ladies on here who live in the Tennessean land. I live in East Tennessee and get the Knox News and Maryville Daily Times and I got all my inserts each and every week. In fact, todays paper had (1) SS, (2) RP and (1) P&G and I got all 4 in each of my 3 papers.

I buy the Tennessean most Sundays, and the one I buy has the RP. DH bought me 2 papers today and both had all 4 inserts.
