What happens to the Sunday Papers?

I wondered if anyone had tips on getting coupons from the Sunday paper after Sunday. Do stores just throw them away?? Can you get them cheaper or even free?

I ran down the paper boy one night and talked to him about his extra. He now puts his extras at my paper box on Monday or Tues. I had 12 papers sitting below my box last Tues.

I asked what they did with them at Walgreens, and she said the newspaper takes them back when they bring the next day. She said they have to give the extras back (can't sell them the next day even).

Someone comes to pick up the unsold papers on Monday morning and the store receives credit. From what I read, the store only needs to send them the front page of the paper to receive credit.

Some couponers ask the store mgr/employee if they can come in on Monday morning and just grab the coupons. But, I would only do this if I had a good rapport with the store...

I don't know what happens after the newspaper picks them up, but my guess is they probably get recycled...

My cousins owned a paper franchise years ago; they would keep the coupons and return only the right corner with the date. I know another cousin takes them and drops them off in the paper retriever box.

I buy multiple papers at the dollar tree (a buck) if the preview is something I need. I also go around the neighborhood early in the morning on our recycle day and grab people's thrown out newspapers and remove the inserts.

I only got three extra inserts this week because I grab all their papers and go through at home for the inserts. I think next time; I'll just grab the papers and throw them on my porch and go through them after work.

Maybe I can grab more

I went to the walgreen manager and asked if they could save me the extras for me to pick up on Mondays. He was nice enuff to do just that! I told 'em that I only needed the coupon inserts.

The newspaper guy collects the newspaper from the gas station takes the cover and throws the newspapers into the dumper behind the gas station.

I find a lot of the Sunday papers still rolled up or tied up in the newspaper recycling bins so I will grab the inserts from them. I am going on my way home tomorrow to the gas station that is right by our house to ask them if I can have the extras that they have. I might even bake them some cookies!

So I can just ask the gas station if they will give my the coupon inserts on Monday if they don't sell out of the newspaper? Do I talk to the manager?
thanks

I go to local gas stations monday mornings before they get picked up and get the inserts out. I've tried leaving a note for the paper person but no call. I've also tried to call the paper dist place on wednesdays and they will charge me full price per paper!!!

I put a short note in our newspaper guy's Christmas card along with his $ gift. Asked if he ever had any extra papers I could sure use them. Now I get an extra Sunday paper left in my driveway at some point during the week. It's only one extra but hey, it's free!

I used to walk the neighbourhood on recycling day to get inserts when we had the small blue boxes but our city changed to big garbage cans for recycling with no sorting---everything recyclable just gets tossed in. That put an end to getting extra inserts that way.
