Newspapers & coupons

I was reading at A Thrifty Mom that some people are complaining to her about not getting the coupons she lists. It's not nice that people want to complain about things beyond her control.

In regards to my site.... As I've stated on my own site, the coupons I personally list on this site are found in the Tri-City Herald and will vary from other locations. Not all newspaper will carry Red Plum and I will once again list the area newspaper that carry Smart Source or Red Plum as I see listed on the coupon inserts itself.

SMART SOURCE that we get in the Kennewick, Richland, Pasco Tri-City Herald can also be found in these newspapers:
  • Spokane Spokemans-Review
  • Coeur 'Alene Press
  • Kellogg-Shoshone News-Press
  • La Grande Observer
  • Moses Lake Columbia Basin Herald
  • Walla Walla Union-Bulletin
  • Sandpoint Bonner County Daily Bee
  • Yakima Herald-Republic
  • Colville Statesman Examiner
  • Hermiston Herald
  • Moscow-Pullman Daily News
SMART SOURCE that can be found in The Seattle Times can also be found in these newspapers:
  • The Seattle Times
  • Tacoma News Tribune
  • Whidbey Whidbey News-Times
  • Wenatchee World
  • Aberdeen Daily World
  • Everett Herald
  • Mount Vernon Skagit Valley Herald
  • Port Angeles Peninsula Daily News
  • Bellevue Reporter
RED PLUM that we get in the Kennewick, Richland, Pasco Tri-City Herald can also be found in these newspapers:
  • Couer D'Alene Press
  • La Grande Observer
  • Moses Lake Columbia Basin Herald
  • Spokane Spokesman Review
  • Yakima Herald Republic
The Seattle Times does NOT get the Red Plum. I do know that the Tacoma Tribune and the Olympia Olympian do get the Red Plum inserts but I don't know what other papers in WA state get Red Plum. The Red Plum site DOES have a look up to see if your Red Plum inserts can be found in the mail or in a paper.

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!
