Multiple Newspaper Subscriptions

I have talked before about how to accumulate coupons, but I thought we should do another go- around. For our original post go here.

So, if any of you are just getting into this couponing craze, you may be wondering if it is really going to be worth it to start subscribing to the Sunday paper!?!? Especially multiple copies!??! Well let me be the first to tell you, YES! In the first month, if not week, you will save enough to pay for the subscriptions! I say, just commit to this new shopping lifestyle and Do It!

Okay, so are you committed yet?

Good. So here are a few ways to get Multiple Subscriptions.

If you are in the Treasure Valley:

I think the best deal is the "Krazy Coupon Lady" Deal that the Idaho Press Tribune is running. For about $14 a month you can have 4 Sunday Papers Delivered (plus 1 paper on weekdays) For an additional cost, you can also get more than 4 papers....
I have spoken with Greg, and it sounds like they are opening it up to a lot of areas in Ada County (Most of Meridian, Star, Kuna and lots of Boise), all of Canyon County, and portions of Gem County. Call Greg directly at 870.2784 for the rest of the details and to see if they will deliver to your area. If they have enough requests for a certain area- they will consider starting a new route!

If the Press Tribune isn't delivering in your area, then call the The Idaho Statesman at 377.6370. They offer a "coupon sense" deal, which is discounted from their normal delivery charge, at $1 per paper, with a minimum of 4 papers... So $4 a week!

Good morning! I was at the mall yesterday and the Idaho Statesman no longer has their kiosk there. The people at the customer service counter said they usually set up around the holiday season. Do you have any suggestions on how to get the 50 cent deal besides at the kiosk?

Thanks Sara! I edited the post, and called The Idaho Statesman.... too bad they discontinued this! Thanks for keeping us current!

For SLC, UT-- they have $2 bundles on Sunday morning where you can get The SL Tribune and Deseret news.

Personally I only want the Sunday paper... and to be honest, I only want the coupons-- so I just get 2 bundles, which is 4 sets of coupons and call it good.

So for $16 a month I get exactly what I want, and I am not wasting all the daily papers I could careless to read. I can read the news online!

Does anyone know of any better deals for the SLC area on the Sunday paper only??

Idaho Falls Couponers!
As you know, we get shorted, we only get one insert in the Post Register. I wrote a letter to the editor about this and asked that the other inserts be re-introduced. I also called them today and let them know that if they would bring more inserts I would add the Sunday Package to my current subscription. If we all call, maybe they will bring them back? 522-0490 is the listed number.

I pay 29 for SLTRIBUNE and Desseret. Melissa, hello why didn't I know you coupon? Everytime we are together how have we not talked about this??!!I get the best deal by bargaining with every paper and then calling each one and having them beat the price.
