First of all, I have to tell you that you CANNOT subscribe to the Raleigh paper in SE North Carolina. Bummer! Actually, I take that back- you CAN subscribe but they will mail it to you with NO coupons, which doesn’t help our purposes here. Fortunately, you CAN find it at many gas stations and stores in Southeastern NC. See below for a list.

It is no secret that bigger cities get better and more plentiful coupons. For a manufacturer, coupons are a form of advertisement for their products. Bigger cities have a higher population so manufacturers are more eager to advertise to those areas.

Try to get the biggest city newspaper that you can! Charlotte’s newspaper is available at some spots in southern Brunswick County. I love the Raleigh paper, too.

The Sunday Raleigh News and Observer costs $2.00 plus tax and it is well worth it! You typically see 3-4x more coupons than in Wilmington Star News! See below for a list of where you can find the Raleigh News and Observer Newspaper. I took the list directly from the Raleigh paper’s website; I do not know how accurate it is. If you see a mistake, please alert me so that I can correct it.

Finally, get there early! Some places sell out of the Raleigh paper by 7 a.m.; others sell out by 9 a.m., especially on days where there are lots of coupons. Go inside the store (do not use the boxes) because some people steal coupons. If theft is a problem, request that the store start keeping papers behind the counter.

Remember, you can print FREE coupons from my website 24/7 and there are always a ton of great coupons there for you! Click here!

*Please call to confirm. Occasionally a location on the list will stop carrying the paper suddenly with no notice to me. See a mistake? Email me- delly@dellysdeals.com

Star News vs. News and Observer!

Feb
05

This week I found two sets of coupon inserts in each paper. I found one Red Plum and one Smart Source insert.

Some people are also reporting a bonus General Mills insert that they found in the Wilmington Star News, so let me know if you find that, too. I’m a little disappointed that I didn’t get it, as the General Mills inserts tend to be really nice!


At first glance, the Wilmington coupon inserts definitely feel thinner! Let’s take a closer look:


The Wilmington Star News Newspaper Smart Source Insert had coupons for the following products: 


Halls Cough Drops, Campbells Kettle Style Soup, Hills Bros Cappuccino, Duncan Hines, Duncan Hines Topping, Almay Cosmetics, Woolite, Lysol Products (6 different coupons), Seattle’s Best Coffee, Stouffer’s Sautes for Two, UP2U Gum, Mentos Gum, Johnsonville Breakfast Sausage, Schick Disposable Razors, White Cloud Bath Tissue, Scotch-Brite Sponges, Hydroxycut, Coldstone Creamery.


The Raleigh News and Observer Smart Source Insert had coupons for all of the above plus

KY Products, Pepcid, Lactaid, Tucks, SoftcupV8 Splas, Campbells Condensed Soups and Select Harvest Soups, Pepperdige Farms 3-Layer Cake, YoCrunch Multipacks, Greek Yogurts, and Candy or Granola Yogurts, Curel Moisturizer, Archway Cookies, Snackwells Bars, Claritin, Dryel Cleaning Kits, Infusium 23, Pert, MegaRed, Woolite Carpet Cleaner and Pet Urine Eliminator (in addition to the above Woolite), Nozin Nasal Sanitizer, Resolve All-Stain and Pretreats, Proactiv, Purina One. The only coupon that was in the Wilmington paper that I did not see in the Raleigh paper was the White Cloud Bath Tissue coupon.

Clearly, the Raleigh Smart Source is a better bet!


Let’s move on to the Red Plum Insert.



The Wilmington Star News Red Plum, insert has coupons for the following:

Folgers, Rhodes Warm n Serv Rolls, Gillette Mach3 Disposable Razors, Gillette Shave Prep, Gillette Fusion ProGlide System, Psoriasin, Paseo Bath Tissue, Paper Towels and Facial Tissue


The Raleigh News and Observer Red Plu, insert has coupons for most of the above plus the following:

 KFC, Baskin Robbins, Zatarain’s, Maybelline New York Mascara and Eyeshadow or Eyeliner, Maybelline Lip Product, Foundation, Blush, Concealer, Quaker Chewy Bars, Jimmy Dean Pancakes and Sausage Products, Greenies Canine Dental Chews, Crave Cat Treats, Nature’s Bounty Vitamins, Polident, Instant Face Lift, Subway.


The Raleigh Red Plum did not include the Gillette Coupons that I saw in my Wilmington paper. 


Once again, the Raleigh paper wins award for most coupons! I wasn’t totally disappointed with the Wilmington paper coupons, so if that’s all you can get, it’s not the end of the world. However, if you can get your hands on the Raleigh paper this morning, it’s definitely more bang for your buck!
