Sunday Coupon Preview October 30th - Great Week to Buy Multiples!

This Sunday there will be a Smartsource, RedPlum and P&G insert in the newspaper. Check out Sunday Coupon Preview for a list of what coupons that you can expect. Please note that these may vary by region.

*ALWAYS make sure to check your papers for inserts before you purchase!!

After speaking to a representative for The Times Picayune, I've learned that most of the insert coupons are now going to people who have home delivery on their Sunday Papers. This may be why many of you aren't finding coupons in the papers available for sale in our area.

With that said, here are s…
