It can be frustrating to get a newspaper without inserts! Follow these tips so you don’t miss out:

No Insert Sunday
On many national holidays, newspapers carry fewer or no inserts (New Year’s Day, Easter, Memorial Day, July 4th, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas). Always check the Sunday Coupon Preview here on KCL before purchasing a paper. If there are no inserts that week, feel free to skip the stands or put a temporary hold on your subscription.

Limited Inserts

Several newspaper companies only have a certain number of inserts and ad circulars available for distribution on any given Sunday. The first priority is to the home delivery customers, followed by newsstands and stores. If your newsstand newspaper had no inserts, this may be why: there were simply not enough that week to make it to all the stands. If possible, opt for an open store stand over a machine. A store’s open stand allows you to make sure the inserts are there.

Newspaper availability

Some smaller newspapers have limited inserts or no inserts at all. Some areas receive a RedPlum, Procter & Gamble or Smart Source insert in their weekly mail with store flyers. In this case, that region’s newspapers are less likely to carry the mailed inserts in the Sunday papers. Before subscribing, ask each newspaper company which inserts they regularly carry so you’ll know what’s missing. If you are missing inserts, contact the newspaper customer service or circulation departments and explain. Some newspapers may give you a refund, get you an extra set of inserts, or send a new paper.

Remember, it is ILLEGAL to take coupon inserts from a newspaper you did not purchase. Krazy Couponers have high ethical standards and do not participate in theft of any kind, including taking inserts without paying.
