Where to Find Coupon Inserts in Canada

Where to Find Coupon Inserts in Canada

Where to get coupon inserts, this is a question that I get asked a lot. So today I will talk little bit about coupon inserts and where you can find them. Many readers want to know about these kinds of inserts and where they can find them and how they can get multiples of them.

So, hopefully this information will guide you in the right direction.

The type of coupon inserts that are available in Canada right now are:

Brandsaver: These come out every 3-4 months.
Smart Source: These come out every 3-4 weeks.
Redplum: These come out every 4 weeks or so.

Those are the 3 coupon inserts that are available. Now, where can you find them, and how can you get multiples of them?

The number one way that I personally get multiple coupon inserts is through family, friends and, actually, the paper carrier. She gets lots of extras and gives them to me instead of just throwing them out (which is what she is told to do by her boss).

Here are some tips for finding coupon inserts in Canada:

Coupon Inserts in Canada

Tip #1

Tip #1 is to ask your friends and family. If you have friends and family members who don’t use coupons, or who don’t use them as heavily as you might, simply ask them if you can have their coupon inserts. If they don’t use them themselves, they will usually give them over to you.

Sometimes you may have to offer some free goodies from your stockpile, but I’m sure that would be worth it!

Tip #2

Tip #2 is to check with your local recycling centre(s) and/or your local paper carrier, and ask them if they have any extra coupon inserts that they are allowed to give out.

A lot of places actually aren’t supposed to give out those extra coupon inserts (they have to send them back to Smart Source, Brandsaver or Redplum), but there are a few exceptions to this, so I do encourage you to check.

Tip #3

Tip #3 is coupon trading. A lot of people get extra coupon inserts from the ways described in tip #2, so they usually have lots of extras that they can’t use themselves. These people are likely to trade those extra coupons.

Check out our coupon trading forum to trade coupons with other Canadians.

Those are my top 3 tips for getting extra coupon inserts.

There is another way to get extra coupon inserts, but it’s not one that I recommend – purchasing them on Ebay. Now, I’m only mentioning this because I know that people are going to bring it up, so I just wanted to acknowledge why I don’t think it’s a good idea to purchase those extra coupons on Ebay.

Most people who are selling coupon inserts (and often tear pad coupons) on Ebay have usually gone about getting those extra coupons the wrong way.

Especially with tear pad coupons, some people will take entire tear pads of coupons, just to sell them on Ebay and I find this to be very wrong. I don’t recommend supporting these people by purchasing their coupons on Ebay.

The only way I would recommend purchasing coupons from Ebay is if you are purchasing a “LOT” of coupons that come from multiple sources (tear pads,, coupon inserts,, etc.). These auctions are often just people trying to get rid of their own coupons that they do not need.

The top 3 tips above are how I get my coupon inserts and how many of my friends get coupon inserts as well.

Couponing Tip: Hold on to Your Coupon Inserts

There are many advantages to holding on to your coupon inserts, instead of just flipping through them and clipping out the coupons you want.Hold on to Coupon Inserts

Even if a coupon insert has coupons for products you don’t use, I still suggest holding onto them because you never know when a sale will come along that you can pair that coupon with – resulting in a free product. Then, you can donate those items to those in need. For example:

  • Pet food & supplies to animal shelters
  • Baby food, diapers, wipes & supplies to women’s shelters
  • Non-perishable food & beverages to food banks

What I do with coupon inserts

I clip the coupons I plan to use, then file the rest away in a file box that is separated by release date (I also list the expiration dates on the folders that hold the coupon inserts).

If I ever need one of those coupons that hasn’t been clipped, I just search for the insert by date, clip my coupon and I’m good to go!

If I were to simply discard the coupon insert when I was done clipping out the coupons I wanted, I wouldn’t be able to snag freebies and great deals for donation!

  1. The Mrs

    WAIL. I don’t have access to any of those. Boo.

  2. Michelle

    We get the Mississauga News but it never has all the flyers and the Smartsource/ Redplum coupon flyers is never in it either.

  3. RT

    What about Quebec?

  4. Lindsay

    And the North misses out AGAIN. I echo The Mrs comment.
    However…I’ve discovered that the paper where my mother lives in Ontario should have it. Now I’m going to harass her into getting it so she can send me the inserts.

  5. Diana

    I have contacted Mississauga News to let them know I wasn’t receiving it – whenever I don’t get it I contact them and its delivered the next day. Hmmm, who is keeping it??

  6. Kay

    Do you happen to know what days actually have them (Victoria Times Colonist) or where I can find that out. I don’t really want to subscribe, but I’ll go and buy a paper if I know the day!

  7. Cassie Howard

    The Mrs – No way, really?! That sucks. πŸ™

    Michelle – I would definetely contact your city about this issue, because you should be receiving them. Your paper boy/girl might be swiping them!

    RT – Whoops! I put Quebec as Alberta by mistake. Fixed now. πŸ™‚

    Lindsay – I’m sorry you are missing out. πŸ™

    Diana – Your paper boy/girl, I bet! I haven’t received mine for the last few weeks there have been coupons.. if I don’t get them tomorrow, I will be contacting the city as well.

    Kay – They would be in your paper today (March 4th)!

  8. Michelle

    If you have the contact number please let me have it.. I would really appreciate it. I live in a condo and we’ve never got Smartsource/Redplum. Only if I subscribe to Toronto Star I receive these flyers and that too was missing the Smartsource flyer one time..

  9. Carma

    Thanks for info. Any idea what paper in Calgary has the P&G insert, and the schedule it follows?

  10. Amanda

    What a great list πŸ™‚ Thanks!!!

  11. Keidi

    In the same boat as Michelle πŸ™

  12. Cassie Howard

    Michelle – I haven’t been receiving my coupon inserts for the last few weeks. I am calling my local paper first thing tomorrow morning to find out what’s going on. If you don’t get them in the Toronto Star, you should call the paper and let them know – they will have one delivered out to you.

    Carma – The P&G insert would be in the same newspapers above. These are only released every 3-6 months, though.

    Amanda – Anytime πŸ™‚

    Keidi – Oh no! πŸ™

  13. Dannielle

    Well it looks like we are all in the same boat. Although Smart Source announced that their next issue was March 5th, we have not received it yet. I’ve just called my newspaper and so far they have not received anything from Smart Source. I guess we’ll just have to wait. ;-(
    Red Plum is scheduled for March 12th.

  14. Cassie Howard

    Dannielle – Aww, booo. πŸ™ I wish I could find a contact number for Smart Source.

  15. Carma

    Found info online, next P & G insert coming April, 2, 2011, mark your calendars!

  16. Cassie Howard

    Thank you Carma! Would you mind sharing the online link?

  17. Helena

    Hey, just wondering where you get this info from? last time you had both the Lethbridge Herald and the Calgary sun listed as newspapers the had the inserts, and I called there and neither place had them. Just so you know, newspapers listed might not have them, call your local paper to see if this info is correct. (Calgary Herald did have them)

  18. Katherine

    I have never gotten these coupon inserts in my weekly flyers. I gave the local paper a call and from now on they will mail me the inserts when they are due to go in the newspaper.

  19. Cassie Howard

    Helena – This information is from a promotion that was done a little while back that has a free mail in rebate offer included in the insert. They posted which newspapers had the coupon inserts.

  20. Sophie

    I say this coupon insert should be by subscription. Those of who want be we get them and those that don’t want them they get the coupon “flyer” and they just end up throwing th away! So aggravating!

  21. kim

    I seen to be having no luck getting the coupon booklets. I receive alerts by email which confuses me, cos I then go buy the newspaper and there’s nothing in it. Did anyone get a coupon booklet in Wednesdays June 1st 2011 Edmonton Journal or any other newspaper. Just checked out the Leduc Rep. June 3rd and nothing in there either. Help

  22. Jan


    This weekend I looked for the smartsource coupons in several papers at my local store; Hamilton Spectator, Sun, Star etc. No coupon booklets. I am wondering if people take them out. I checked many papers.


  23. Jennifer Lismor

    We have a major problems receiving our daily papers as the delivery services are not adequate. Would it be possible to have the offers mailed to us directly? Thank you

  24. sarah

    I’m in Calgary, and I can never find these inserts… Do you have to have a subscription to receive them or can I find them if I buy a paper at the store?

  25. shoppingwiz

    I live in Windsor Ontario & can never find these inserts. I called the Windsor Smart Shopper & the lady told me they don’t have them. I called my local newspaper and they don’t have them either. I hope to find some answers soon.

  26. Lisa Shearn

    The inserts are not in the papers at your local store, many cities you have to subscribe to the newspaper to get the inserts. My local paper alwasy has them on the dates that are on the schedule.

  27. Valerie

    Your info says red plum and smart source coupon inserts can be found in Niagara This Week in Ontario. I had never noticed them but have been faithfully searching for a few weeks now. There has not been any. Any idea if they are put in regularly or rarely?

  28. Cassie Howard

    Valerie – There are no new coupon inserts until the first week of July.

  29. Cassandra

    I stumbled across the schedule for the coupon inserts on once before & have never been able to find it again….could you post a link or directions???? happy saving!!!!!

  30. kim


  31. Janelle

    I was wondering if there was a way to get Red Plum or Smart Source insert sent to me in rural Manitoba? I live four hours away from any large city and although we can get the city newspaper subscription out here it seems pretty stupid for me to pay for the paper if I just want the insert LOL

  32. Cassie Howard

    Janelle – The only other way (other than newspaper subscription) is to purchase inserts from eBay.

  33. Ainsley

    Hi everyone, I was wandering if anyone knows when in Calgary Alberta I can get these, I no they are in the Calgary Sun and Herald, but I don’t know what days, or how often they are in them.
    any help would be great i am new to the couponing and would love any help I can get
    thank you

  34. angela

    I actually subscribed to the Sun times once upon a time and I never saw a redplum… I kind of suspect the paper carrier simply because the flyers often didnt get handed out (but they’d end up stacked in the recycle bins down the end of the way) at that time. Kinda makes me want to get another paper route lol jk

  35. Cassie Howard

    angela: If you’re not getting your papers, contact the paper company. πŸ™‚

  36. Jen

    How do you go about purchasing coupons or the red plum or smart source inserts on ebay? Do you only use the to get Cndn coupons?

  37. Cassie Howard

    Jen: Yes, you just go to and search for Canadian coupons – you should find some. πŸ™‚

  38. crazymum

    For the coupon inserts I have not seen any yet! I have found the link on here say what dates etc for Calgary, NOTHING. and I get the Calgary Herald 7 days a week, sure hope I see some more coupons.

  39. Marie

    Surprised…I didn’t get mine today and haven’t seen anyone talking about it. Wonder if the date is wrong?

  40. Cassie Howard

    Marie: Some areas may receive their insers a day or two before or after the scheduled date. If you don’t receive yours, contact your local paper.

  41. Mare from Owen Sound

    In my area, the left over or extra flyers are available free a the corner stores that sell papers. Good luck.

  42. Kim

    Just thought I would let anyone in the Leduc, Alberta area know that the leduc rep only carries the smartsource inserts. Just called them to confirm. The lady I spoke with says they come out the 2nd week of every month, and if you plan on picking up the paper at your local convenience store it will not carry the insert. Only scheduled delivery receives it. So you have to contact the paper directly to go and pick up your insert.

  43. Tina

    Found smart source has an online website you can print coupons from – (it canadian!) –

  44. Joanna

    Hi Cassie, just wanted to let you know that Saint City News here in St Albert, AB is no longer in business. They shut down a few months ago πŸ™

  45. Cassie Howard

    Joanna: Thank you!

  46. Kim In Leduc

    Just wanted to let anyone in the Edmonton area know, I live in a rural area so do not have the option to get the Edmonton Sun, Journal Etc….But….I contacted the Edmonton Sun and the nice lady I spoke with in the circulation department sent me some copies of the current Smartsource πŸ™‚ So if you are like me and do not recieve the papers that carry the inserts give the ones that do a call….you might just get lucky.

  47. Manon

    Sorry but never seen these insert in our paper yet? Timmins Daily press

  48. lisa

    I live in Hamilton Ontario and you can ONLY get the coupon inserts if you are a HOME Delivery subscriber of the Spectator. AND, they only send out to certain postal codes… they have no guarantee you will even get one. I asked if I could just buy a Saturday paper and they said NO. In fact, they don’t even have extras at the spec building …as I went there directly myself just last week. It sure has been a challenge lately to find these coupon inserts. If anyone knows of a place in my area where I can get some…PLEASE let me know. Thanks so much!

  49. Alex

    I was wondering if anyone has gotten the inserts in Manitoba. I live outside the city of winnipeg but can buy the paper at my corner store?

  50. Kim In Leduc

    Just wanted to let some people know, that if you aren’t recieving them check your paper delivery person. I have on many occaisions been checking kijiji for people giving away coupons and have spotted quite a few ads of people bribing the delivery person with “free stuff” if they give them multiple copies of these inserts. So chances are in Edmonton area anyways, if you aren’t recieving yours, your delivery person may be the cause.

  51. janeen

    This makes sense- I checked 12 RURAL newspaper boxes( The Leduc Rep) none had the coupon inserts– so bought the Edmonton journal to get one– but the rural boxes on the east side of the city I was told “had some”.. interestingly enough!!

  52. Sharon

    Can you tell me when I should be looking for these coupons in my local paper? Is there a particular day? We don’t subscribe to our paper, but I would pick a copy up on the days that have the coupons.

  53. Joanne

    I have never seen coupons from the newspapers here in Calgary. Do they have them? They sell a lot of newspapers if they did.

  54. Lisa

    Just wondering in quebec for the “Montreal Gazette”, “La Presse” or “National Post” does any one know on what day the inserts would be in the papers? Thank-you.

  55. beth irving

    I have NEVER seen the redplum inserts in Montreal area, they are not in the Gazette, LaPresse or Journal de Montreal and the national post. I check every month ‘just to be sure’ and they r never there???

  56. Cassie Howard

    beth irving: I suggest calling your local newspaper.

  57. joleen

    i didnt recieve them and neither did any of my neighbours πŸ™

  58. Amberleah

    Nothing for the Yukon?

  59. Nancy

    I, too have never seen any inserts in The Montreal Gazette. What a bummer!! It’s so discouraging.

  60. Stefanie McMullen

    @Beth Irving:

    I thought the exact same thing but it turns out that we seem to get them earlier than scheduled. On the Nov 26 date this year, I couldn’t find ANY anywhere in the Montreal area. I came home, noticed that our free paper was still hanging on our steps and the Red Plum inserts were in that one which was dated Nov 22, 2011! I was so surprised but happy that I checked before I threw it out! My advice is, check your free papers first and check every day on the week that it’s supposed to be released.

  61. Anita

    Hi Cassie! I just wanted to let you know that the Redplum inserts are also in the Hamilton Spectator in Ontario. Thanks!

  62. Sai

    I too feel like I’m searching to no end! I live in Toronto; and have gone through paper after paper!! The Sun, Star local free papers.. check some numerous times – JUST in case someone may have stolen the insert the time before… but to no avail. Is anyone else having the same problem? Anyone in Toronto subscribe and successful with getting inserts?

  63. Ellen

    SmartSource and RedPlum are not available in the local EMC (along with our weekly flyers) and I’ve never seen them in the Brockville Recorder.

    I live in the country and don’t subscribe to the paper. Are they only available in paid subscriptions, or can I pick up a paper at the general store?

  64. bargainmama

    Redplum is available in saskatoon star phoenix, but the smart source is not, I wish i could find it out here in saskatchewan, anyone know where I can? awesome site by the way, lovin the bargains!
    Tomorrow at the bay the new coupon comes out if signed up on line for 20% of everything, including already 50% off jewellery!!

  65. Kim Heisler

    I am in Prince Edward Island and there are no coupons in either paper , I am very disappointed.

  66. Patricia

    Hi Anita from Hamilton,

    Any particular day that the Red Plum inserts are in the paper? I cannot seem to find the right day. Or perhaps I will just call the paper directly and ask them! lol. thanks everyone for your posts.

  67. Catherine Hatt

    I already have the list for when the SmartSource coupons are to be released for the year, but I am unable to get the list for when Redplum coupons will come out for the year. I would like to set up a time to order extra papers on these dates, as my paper-lady does not know when they are to be released. This would great for the both of us, she gets the extra sales from the papers, and I get the coupons. Several of the neighbours are on the same thought line.

  68. Jennifer Robertson

    Hi, I am wondering if you could post the dates for when the inserts come out.

    Thanks a bunch πŸ™‚

  69. Karen

    Kelowna Event that is delivered without a subscription does not ever carry any coupon inserts. It’s all celebrity gossip and “cultural events”. No coupons. Ever.

  70. Sarah

    The Aurora/Newmarket Banner/Era Banner (same paper) has NEVER ever had coupon inserts. Its most frusterating when all my family in surrounding towns get the coupon inserts but I do not. The only way for me to get coupon inserts is to pay for a Toronto newspaper which often times isn’t worth it in the end.

  71. Jamie-Lee

    Ottawa Citizen no longer has coupon inserts. At all. Trust me, I just bought the paper.

  72. Lisa

    I just found out that smart source doesn’t supply enough to go in every paper…so all the papers I received at work and the one I pay yearly for got “NOTHING” majorly sucks to try and find one now.

  73. christine

    Hi Ladies
    Just FYI i emailed the Toronto Star they do not include the Redplum and Smart Soucre inserts with there paper they told me only in your local paper.

  74. Cassie Howard

    christine: I don’t know who you spoke to, but they were mistaken. I get the Toronto Star and have always received coupon inserts with them.

  75. marta

    I was wondering if anyone knpows where to get P G in Woodbrige Ont?

  76. Teresa in N.S.

    Hi, I was just wondering if you could find out and post the dates for when the Brandsaver coupon inserts come out.

    Thank You….

  77. Cassie Howard

    Teresa: As soon as I find out what the schedule is, I will post it.

  78. Liz


  79. Cassie Howard
  80. Lisa Trommeshauser

    I am interested in getting more coupons like these and I see that the Toronto Sun is listed. If I was to order this paper to be delivery I understand it only comes on the certain dates but when it does come will it be in the Saturday or Sunday paper? I am looking to get the Sunday one for the coupons and enjoyment but would be disappointed if they arrived in the Saturday paper or another day of the week.

    Thank you

  81. Cassie Howard

    Lisa Trommeshauser: It’s best to call your paper and ask them, as I’m not entirely sure.

  82. Lisa Hutchings

    I live in Parry sound and Our paper does not have inserts, Am I able to request them from the company who sends them out? I really want to use coupons but have limited access to them

  83. Cassie Howard

    Lisa Hutchings: No, you cannot request them from the company. πŸ™ You will have to find another company that has them, or ask friends/family for their inserts.

  84. Amanda

    I used to get Smart Source and redplum with my regular flyers when I lived in NB. I now live in AB and it looks like I’ll have to buy a newspaper to get either of them? That’s not fair! I don’t know anyone who lives in Calgary to ask them for their inserts nor do I want to have to buy a paper that won’t get read.. πŸ™

  85. Justine

    I get the edmonton journal and the edmonton sun delivered on Saturday’s and Sundays, but I have never found the coupons in the paper. Am I missing something?

  86. Laury

    Hi! Coupons in the Montreal area show up according to the schedules posted here (Saturday paper) in the following newspapers: The Montreal Gazette (English); La Presse (French) and the Journal de Montreal (French). Note: You don’t always find the same inserts in the English and French papers.So you might want to look at both! Redplum, Utilisource & P&G are available. Hint… try having a coffee at your local coffee shop on those days… they usually carry complimentary copies for their customers… clip what you need and leave the rest for the next customer!

  87. Trina

    So I’m wondering if anyone has found out when these inserts appear in any of the Edmonton papers? Is it just random weekends?

  88. Cassie Howard

    kelly: Those coupons are from last year.

    Denise: I get them from a lady in the area who delivers papers. She gives me the extras.

    Jacinda Cote:

  89. Louise

    These are excellent tips for finding coupon inserts, thank you! In my condo building we have a recycling room where many people throw out their newspapers, inserts and all. Instead of rummaging through the recycle bins (which usually results in some great finds, although not always ideal) I simply put a little box down there with a sign on the front, asking people to donate their coupon inserts. It’s amazing how many extra copies I get just by doing this, people are generally very obliging!

  90. Marianne @ Preserving Pennies

    I have a relative that delivers papers and some of the people on his route have requested not to receive the paper. Despite having told the paper company that he needs less papers, they continue to send him the papers for the people that have declined delivery. As a result, they get extra coupon inserts every time they come out. If you know a kid with a paper route, it’s worth asking!

  91. sandra macneil

    We subscripe to the Cape Breton Post & I have not been receiving RED PLUM coupons/ I am going to call the CP Post tomorrow to find out what is going on!!! Our DIL lives in a different area and she has always got her inserts from the CB Post. Must also check kijii

  92. sandra macneil

    Did anyone know that coupon inserts are being sold in kijiji & E-Bay? I am shocked that anyone would go to tthat level~~~~~~~~~~~~~

  93. Cassie Howard

    sandra: Yep, and it has been happening for awhile now.

  94. sandra macneil

  95. Shelly

    who do we contact to have does insert added to our local news paper?
    From what i’m seeing here there is not a lot of local news paper in NB that offers does insert but from what I’m seeing here Campbelton N.-B. has two news paper with does insert and there town is smaller then ours. Not fare ;o( How come P&G does not give those insert to all local news paper?

  96. Kaela

    Like everyone else, I cant find these coupons. I am in Ontario…

  97. Cassie Howard

    Kaela: If you are not receiving inserts, contact your newspaper and ask them why. They should be able to help.

  98. Carol McCann

    just wondering where we find out what coupons are in the last redplum
    thank you you have a wonderful site

    • Cassie Howard

      When we find out about the contents of new coupon inserts, we will post them here on the blog.

  99. Martine

    I live in a rural comunity in Northern Ontario. Does the Elliot Lake Standard or Sudbury Star get the Smart Source and RedPlum insert. Alot of times when I buy them at the local gas bar the inserts are not there. I have yet to even see a red plum flyer. Any answers would help.

    • Cassie Howard

      If you are not receiving inserts in your paper, I suggest contacting your newspaper company to find out why. You must receive the insert to your home. There are no inserts in the papers you buy in store.

      • Vikee

        I don’t know about sudbury but the newspapers I see in the stores always have inserts in them.

  100. Catherine

    Can someone from Ottawa please tell me which newspaper the inserts actually come in? I have looked in the papers listed on the insert scheduled days and cannot find any! =(

    • Catherine

      I just noticed Cassie said you must receive the inserts to your home. The paper is too expensive for me to order so I was looking in the stores, but will definitely dumpster dive on the days if I know which paper to look in.

    • Sherisse

      I purchased both the Ottawa citizen and national post. The only one that had it was the
      National post. This was for the smart source……. Hopefully this helps !

  101. Nicole

    The Oshawa/Whitby/Port Perry/Clarington This Week does not get the inserts any more, I have contacted the paper numerous times and they keep saying they have advised the companies.

  102. Diana Ferreira

    Today is January 5, 2013. According to the coupon inserts schedule, today a coupon booklet from Smartsource was released. I live in Edmonton, Alberta; I looked for the coupon booklet on Edmonton Journal, Edmonton Sun and Edmonton Examiner, both in stores and in vendor boxes and none had a coupon booklet. πŸ™

  103. Josee

    I have subscribed to the Edmonton Sunday Sun as I heard they were in that paper the weekend of release. SmartSource was to be released Jan 5 2013 weekend. Did not receive insert in Jan 6 paper. Contacted Edmonton Sun who told me to contact Flyer Force and when I did, Flyer Force says they are not affiliated with Edmonton Sun whatsoever. I’m getting the runaround and not happy about it. Does anyone know if it comes in the Saturday edition or the Sunday edition?

  104. Deborah Dobbs

    I always received red plum in my st.thomas ontario paper that comes on thursdays. Today it was not in there. Is there a reason for this as I contacted company and they said red plum inserts were not given to them.
    Thank you
    Deborah Dobbs

  105. Sadie

    I lived in a apt building we do not recieved the redplum or smart source can you please till me where I can pick them up thanks you for your time

  106. Garry

    I just received an email back from, the company who runs the langley advance and the surrey now papers, and they told me they dont do the redplum flyers. Is there another surrey bc paper that does?

  107. Reyash

    Hi, I checked Toronto star on Saturday and no insert coupon at all do you know what day they will have them ?

  108. Sam

    Does anyone know where to find the east cole harbour weekly news? I can’t seem to find where thy sell/distribute them

  109. Anglewings

    Where I come from I don’t get Red Plum or Smart Source or any kind of coupons.I have tried contacting them but had no luck.I would love to get these in my Telegram considering I’m subscribed to the Telegram for about 10 years.I heard they come in the papers in a city next to ours which is about a 15minute drive from here where I live.They should move them around to another town after so long,so everyone can get a chance to get them.There isn’t much fairness in this.

    Hi, there,

    Cassie, you are seriously the sweetest little thing! As if you went ahead and did all this work for your readers… finding as many newspapers as you could (all across Canada, too!) that had these coupon inserts… JUST to help us out. Thank you so, so much. It’s appreciated. And please ignore all of the people that still complain, after you have done so much work for us! [Some people expect others to do EVERYTHING for them, haha).

    Bless you, and have a great day!


  111. Cynthia

    I want to thank you very much for making me a more careful and cautious shopper. I love the extra work you go through putting in headings such as: Frugal, Simple Living, Watching your Buck etc. I find all of these very helpful and am learning more than what I knew from it. Again thank you for your time and kindness.

    God Bless

  112. Danielle

    I live in a apt by kidding and would love to start saving money, could someone please help me out,

  113. tanya

    what days does this come in the hamilon spectator (ontario)

    • Erica Ashley

      Tanya, my grandmother gets the Hamilton Spec and she’s received the inserts in her Saturday paper. Sometimes she has received it in Friday, but not often. Hope that helps!

  114. Rachael

    I live in a condo building in london ontario and do not receive the coupon inserts. Is there anyone that can tell me where i can get them or if someone can collect them for me. Or know of any places that i can get my hands on some that would be great thanks.

  115. jw

    does anyone know when the orangeville banner gets their inserts?

  116. Linda

    I receive the Mississauga news and very rarely get the red plum coupons or smart source in it. Why? And does anyone know how to get on there mailing list directly?

    • Cassie Howard

      If you’re not getting your inserts, you need to contact your paper right away. They will take care of it for you. I had issue with Mississauga News before and once I called to complain, I never had issues again. πŸ™‚

  117. Norma

    if I get a chance to access a coupon insert, I always clip the coupons, whether I use the product or not, cause you never know……sometimes I can trade or like you said buy the product and give it to a shelter, etc…..and I always sort by date…..

    • Cassie Howard


  118. Heather

    I clip ALL the coupons. A large amount I can’t use but carry them with me all the time ( never know when I’m going to pop into a store). I will either give them to people I see purchasing the product or leave them on the shelf with that specific product.

    • Cassie Howard

      So nice of you to share. πŸ™‚

  119. Lisa

    To whom this may concern.
    Red Plum is not in the Kirkland Lake Northern Daily News.

  120. rhonda

    i stocked up on the free/cheap iams catfood deals a few months ago and donated them to my local shelter! i spent $20 and they got over $250 worth of free food! i think i was happier than they were!

    i don’t have cats, but had i not saved those coupons i could never have helped!

    • Cassie Howard

      That’s so awesome, Rhonda!

  121. Caroline

    Garry :: Surrey Now is the other paper that will carry the inserts

  122. Mer

    Yesterday there were no inserts in the Torontoo Star or Sun inb the downtown core of Toronto.

    I checked Rexall and two Shoppers Drug in the area as well as three convenience stores.

    What gives?

  123. Norman

    My family has been getting the Welland Tribune for years. The coupon inserts and some flyers for staples have not been in them for over a year now. Also not getting coupon flyers in Niagara this week paper. I asked the lady that brings the paper why. She said she thinks someone who works for paper takes them before she gets the paper. The lady that brings the paper has multiple routes in town.
