  • they probley will make you buy the paper. But it does not hurt to ask and if works for you let me know since the only reason I buy a paper is for the coupons. Might find a neighbor or a family member to give you their extras or even the ones they do not want might help you out. Might even try the local paper and when they get rid of the copys that did not sell then they might be able to just give you the coupons for free. I never even thought of that for myself till just now. Does not hurt to try.

  • Also stop in the post office. The recycling box in ours is always full of coupon circulars. People just toss them with their other junk mail.

  • LOL... I think you have to buy the whole paper. If you want just the inserts, you can buy them from

  • If you want coupons, go to sites like Red Plum and print them out. The inserts are for people who purchase the paper. Wouldn't you be upset if you bought the paper and the insert was missing?

  • If you contact your local newspaper you can get only the coupon section of the sunday newspaper delivered to you each sunday (not sure the cost). I signed up for the "weekend" special and it gives me thursday-sunday for $7.20 a month. But my neighbor gets only the sunday section of coupons delivered to her each sunday. Again not sure the cost, but if i'm only paying $7.20 per month for the entire cant be that much :)
