How to Get Extra Coupon Inserts
Posted on Tuesday, July 7th, 2009 at 11:41 am
To take advantage of the deals at the grocery store, you will often want more than one copy of the Sunday coupon inserts. But paying an average of $2 each for multiple Sunday papers can get expensive. So here are some ways that you can get some extra coupon inserts for free or at least for less than the regular cost of the newspaper.
Check your local recycling
If there is an area where people in your own drop off their recycling, you may be able to look through the old papers to find lots of extra inserts that have been discarded.
Check with neighbors, friends and family
Many neighbors, friends and family would be happy to save the coupon inserts for you if they don’t use them themselves. You could also check with coworkers.
Check local coffee houses
If you live near a Starbucks, Panera Bread or other establishment, make a visit on Sunday nights and take a look in the recycling bin. Often people read the Sunday paper while enjoying their coffee or snack and then discard the papers.
Check the local new stand or convenience store.
If the owner or manager of the convenience store is nice, he or she may let you have all of the coupon inserts that are left over from the newspapers at the end of the day on Sunday.
Check for a Sunday preview
The Sunday preview papers that come out on Saturday may be half the cost. In my area, the price is the same, but in many other areas, this paper, which contains all of the inserts, will be less expensive.
Check with the paper delivery person
Often the paper delivery person will have extra inserts after assembling all of the papers. So ask if you may have them, or start delivery papers yourself!
Check the local dollar store
Our dollar store sells the $2 Sunday papers for only $1. Half price is a great thing.
