Star News vs. News and Observer Round Three!

Last week the Raleigh News and Observer was the big winner, with way more coupons than the local Wilmington paper. Each newspaper has won a round, so this week will be the tiebreaker! 


The Star News inserts sure FEEL thinner than the Raleigh News and Observer, so I’m going to predict that the better bet this week is the Raleigh paper. See below for  list of all coupons in each paper.

Total Value of Wilmington Star News Coupons $36.95

Going by sheer value alone, the Raleigh paper definitely had more coupons. Add in the extraordinary variety of coupons that you got from the Raleigh paper and it’s the best bet this week by far. I wouldn’t even bother with the Star News this week, unless you just plan to read it!
