Why you don’t need the Sunday Washington Post 9/6 this week

washington_logo_375

Sorry to say this weekend will not have coupons because it is Labor Day weekend!  You don’t need to get the Washington Post.  Save that $1.50 for some ice cream or something else.   Have a great Labor Day Weekend!

I will be getting my paper tomorrow since I still have a subscription and will post any other deals I find.

Why you should buy a Sunday 8/9/09 Washington Post this week.

washington_logo_375

I was thinking about the Red Plum coupons and the reason I buy the Washington Post each week.  Currently, I have a subscription and will be canceling it soon since I don’t have a weekly discount anymore.  Instead I will go to the store and get the Sunday Double Deal on Sundays.  There will be some Sundays I might not be interested in getting it, like the Holidays don’t have coupons.  So, in the long run I will save by only buying the ones that I want.  There are some Sundays that it makes sense to buy more than one or more than two.  I will try and write a post on Saturdays to say if it makes sense to buy the paper or not.

This week you should!  Sunday 8/9 Washington Post has coupons and a lot more.

Update: Red Plum Coupons in Washington Post

washington_logo_375

Well, I haven’t confirmed 100% but it looks like as of last weekend (7/26/09) that Washington Post will be carrying the Red Plum coupons again.  I didn’t get the Red Plum coupons in my Red Plum mailer on Monday, 7/27/09.

etllogoquienes628

Per my earlier post, click HERE to read it, I mentioned the Red Plum web site that allows you to search your location to find the Red Plum coupons.  This morning on my way to work I found the Washington El Tiempo Latino newsstand (Note this is FREE!) and to my excitement it has the Red Plum coupons!  It looked different then the ones from Sunday’s paper and I looked at the date and it is for this weekend (8/2/09)!  Woohoo! It didn’t include other coupons like SmartSource or P&G.

I strongly suggest getting the “Double Pack” for $2 of the Washington Post this weekend.  There should be all 3 coupon inserts:  P&G, Red Plum and Smart Source!

Let me know where else you find your coupons!

Read my post about Where to find coupons!

Where to find Coupons?

On the side bar of my website you can print coupons from Coupons.com.  Super Easy!

Click HERE to go to Coupons Inc. for Brick coupons.  You will have to download software in order to print these.

In previous posts I’ve mentioned that Washington Post doesn’t include the Red Plum inserts anymore. So, where do you find them?

1. Red Plum is now being sent in the mail via their mail flier. Check your mailbox. I usually get mine on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday.

2. Ask your family and friends for their Red Plum inserts that they get in the mail. I’m surprised at how many people are happy to help!

3. Check some of your local newspapers. I look at all of the local newspapers no matter where I travel. You would be surprised at where they might be. I will update this post as I come across more.

4. Check out recycling bins or recycling centers.  This is something I haven’t done but I’ve heard this is a great way to get extras.

5.  Talk to your mailman about getting you extra copies of the Red Plum flier.  This is something I haven’t done but it is a great idea.

Where to find the inserts in the Washington Metro Area.

Newspapers that include both the Red Plum and Smart Source Inserts. These are the newspapers in the Washington Metropolitan area.

  • Baltimore Sun – Cost $2.00
  • Free-Lance Star – Cost $1.50 – Shoppers Cost $1.40
  • Gainesville Times – This paper includes the week before Smart Source and the upcoming week Red Plum insert. Click HERE for locations to pick up the paper.  Cost $.50 – Shoppers Cost $.45

These newspapers include the Smart Source Inserts only.

  • Fairfax Times – Click HERE for locations to pick up the paper. Cost FREE!  In fact, all of the Fairfax County Libraries get copies and they have them in the Information Centers free to take.  It is published on Wednesdays.  I usually see it on Thursdays.
  • Loudoun Times-Mirror – Click HERE for locations to pick up the paper.  (Not sure of the cost.)
  • Washington Post – Cost $1.50 – Sam’s Club $1.40  – Giant sells the Washington Post on occasion 2 in a bag called a “Double” pack for $2.00.

Thanks to Redemption Unlimited for their post on Red Plum coupons.

Washington Post – It’s official NO Red Plum coupons

This is a follow up to my post from the other day.   I wanted to mention that this morning I had the bad news of looking at my ad section and only receiving the Smart Source section.  No Red Plum to be found.

I didn’t get the Red Plum coupons in my mailbox.  The Red Plum ad in my mailbox said “$35 worth of coupons inside” and they weren’t there.  It looks like they fell out.   So far my Mom and Mother-in-law (who look out for coupons for me) haven’t seen it either.  I don’t think this idea of advertising is going to work for Red Plum.  I can see their idea of putting coupons in people’s mailboxes would give others opportunity to receive coupons, however, if they are in the pizza ads no one looks at them.  My Mom and Mother-in-law throw them away usually.  I had to ask them specifically to look out for them.

In my area it seems they appear on Tuesdays.  Is that when you get them?

What are your thought on this change?  Where should I get Red Plum coupons now?  The only newspaper that can be delivered is Washington Times and they don’t offer coupons.

UPDATE:  I want to mention that this week I got the Red Plum in Monday’s mail.   When are you getting them?
