Which newspaper has the BEST coupons?

Ok...

Here are the newspapers that I have access to:

Binghamton Press & Sun - FREE ($1.50 for everyone else)
I am usually able to get anywhere from 10 to 40+ inserts from the Binghamton Press & Sun (big whoop dee doo) - but it's great for P&G's.

Scranton Sunday Times - $1.50
The Scranton Sunday times is O...K...I usually only buy 1 or 2 to make sure I have all of the bases covered.

Syracuse Post Standard - $2.00 (Yikes!)
The Syracuse Post Standard is my 2nd favorite - they always have FULL inserts, lots of Q's, though they tend to be for "eh" amounts.

New York Post - $1.00 (Yay!)
I JUST started buying the NY Post as an experiment and I'm finding that it's probably the BEST $1.00 I'll ever spend on a newspaper.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Up until September 1st I used to get as many copies as I could possibly get my hands on of the Philly paper - the Q's were amazing! Somehow they agreed that it wasn't cost effective to deliver the paper to upstate NY'ers anymore - pafooey on them!

So...just for hee-haws I put together a little list comparing the SS Q's from last weekend...see attached...

I think I've learned that I will buy as many NY Posts as I can and then supplement with the Post Standard...

What papers do you get? How do the Q's compare to the ones on my list?

Would you guys be interested in keeping a spreadsheet (for a month maybe) - I can throw something up on Google Docs - all you'd have to do is enter the amount of the Q and how many you have to purchase?? Just a thought...tell me I need a vacation - I'll understand...but if you think I'm NOT crazy, shoot over a list of the papers you buy every week and I'll add columns for them.

SEE ATTACHED!

I get the Syracuse Post Standard. You must be close to Syracuse if you get that. And yes they just raised the price! I couldn't believe it.
Maybe I should look into getting the New York Post for a buck!! That is a great buy!!

I'm about an hour south of Syracuse...and I know...kinda hurts a little more for that extra $.25!

That's kinda why I wanted to do this - to let others know which papers (that might be near them) have the "better" Q's...

Okay seriously.....you need a job. You need to hire yourself out to do work out of the house if you aren't working already. That is just amazing and this is not the first one of these I have seen you "throw together".

That being said, I'll send you the money for the Post and you can mail me the coupons!

BTW, I'll be in Binghamton for two nights of recruitments and trainings in mid-October. Come over for an adult beverage?

I asked to have it moved because you will get more answers in this forum.... Not everyone from upstate NY has a PC, plus the NY post is sold all over NY..... And also this thread really does not have anything to do with PC It fits better in the ask the savings experst forum.

Ok...sorry...I was kinda on the same idea as MrsKJ - trying to find the best newspapers (with the best Q's) for this general area for use at PC...but...I get YOUR drift

Just afraid I'll start hearing about all of these awesome Q's from newspapers that are 1500 miles away

BTW...just for those of you who are interested in seeing my "complete" coupon spreadsheet...

Once it's set up it really doesn't take much time to update it, etc. I can enter inserts in about 1/2 hour...it's the "loose" coupons that take a long time to go through...

I spend probably about 3-4 hours a day between the boards, making lists, etc. It's my hobby, so I never really "tracked" the time.

My daughter goes to bed around 10PM, so between 10PM and 2AM ish is MY couponing time

I guess it may have something to do with the fact that it's the "Metro" edition?? (click on the image for a close up)

<a href="http://s49.photobucket.com/albums/f283/WillUBMyKnight/Misc%20Q%20Pics/?action=view&current=NYP.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i49.photobucket.com/albums/f283/WillUBMyKnight/Misc%20Q%20Pics/NYP.jpg" height="100" width="400" border="0" alt="NY Post for $1.00"></a>

Were the coupons I listed in mine the same as what you get in the higher priced edition???

I asked the owner/manager of my local gas station what he did with the newspapers that didn't sell on Sundays. He said he rips the corners off, keeps them in a pile (in case the newspaper guy wants to "inspect" them) and then throws them in a NEWSPAPER ONLY recycling bin in the trash corral.

Without trying to scream "Hallelujah" I asked if I could have them. He said "Absolutely!! We put the papers in there SOMETIME during the course of the day on Monday, and then Tuesday morning the trash guys come - so you're more than welcome to them - just make sure you get them by Tuesday morning."

Now, I live in a VERY small town - this is the ONLY gas station for about 10 miles...it is somewhat embarassing to drive up to the trash corral and go "diving" but I have never been bothered by the (2) police in town and after getting 20+ inserts a week, I've learned that I have ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to be embarassed about. Still, though, I go around 11PM LoL

I've tried our local recycling center, but honestly, after getting "fresh" inserts, I kinda felt like the ones from the recycling center were "abused" LoL I just don't like "2nd hand coupons" what can I say!

I have told people on the "other" board what I do, but no one seems to think it's worth doing (????) Everyone INSISTS that the only way to get extra inserts is to dumpster dive for used ones. Um...ok! Go for it...meanwhile, I'll stay clean, get "fresh" inserts, and not have to worry about a cop flashing his lights at me!!!

ok, i am not a ny-er, but here in illinois..... i have a little thing i started doing in order to get extra inserts - though it is only a few some weeks, and a lot others..... when i am lucky enough to work 2nd shift on sun nights, i stop by a couple of gas stations that i know of who carry the chicago trib, the best for coupons anywhere close to me, and if it is anywhere close to midnight, they let me take the inserts, as long as i don't take the front page. i get soooo excited when they are there. tonight i only got 3, but some weekends i can get about 12. just happy not to have to pay the $2.50 each for them!

I agree - some weeks I get more than others (my smallest week was 5 inserts - my largest was the July P&G weekend...48 inserts!) so I ALWAYS buy (10) Post Standards @ $2.00 each, (10) NY Posts @ $1.00 each, a couple Scranton papers (I'm actually not going to anymore - not worth it), and (1) Press & Sun - this way I KNOW I'll have atleast 10 good inserts...and I need the Press & Sun for the sales flyers. This way, any inserts I DO get are a bonus!
