Star How do I get multiples of coupon inserts?

I know the easiest and most obvious answer is to just buy several papers, but I don't really want to do that....

I've heard several people mention that they ask managers for the coupons from the old newspapers (Get leftover Sunday coupons on Monday). I just called my local Wags and the manager laughed at my request.... So how do you guys do it? I offered to buy them, never asked for him to just give them to me.

I'm wondering what you guys said to a gas station/drug store/convienence store manager to get him to agree to sell you the leftover inserts? I understand that the newspaper comes and takes old papers when they drop off new ones, but I doubt they count the coupons inside!

First off, I think you have to do this in person.

Second, are there any shops that sell papers that you go to regularly. Have they seen you before?

Third, if not, it's time to make friends.

Go out early on Sunday morning and make note of who gets the sunday paper on your street. Then politely ask them if you can have the coupons they aren't going to use.

Get several friends to form a coupon swapping group. If you live close, meet every week to swap coupons you don't want.

You can order from coupon clipper places (look under the "coupon" tab at the top".

I got a Christmas card from my newspaper guy and called him and asked if he ever has extra inserts. He has me hooked up. He gives me lots of extras.

I'm looking to be able to just pick them up in town. I've read several people mentioning that they worked out deals with store managers, I'm just curious as to how they worded it.

My town's paper is an afternoon one only printed M-F. There aren't any Sunday papers that deliver here. I buy my Sunday paper at gas stations, Wags, etc.

I would try the gas station manager first as wags might have stricter store policys. Just be casual and ask you were wondering what they did with the outdated newspapers, if the carrier picks them up to get a count credit of unsold or if the store recycles them. Be honest with them, say - I am trying to find a regular source of the sales flyers & coupon inserts.

BTW ,Do you have a recycling center in your town? Maybe you could dumpster dive there.

Lol My town isn't big enough for a real recyling effort (I have to bag, sort and deliver all my recycling). None of my friends use coupons, like at all. Some of them didn't even know such a thing existed (outside of the store blinkies and tearpads) until I couldn't resist and started showing them some high value coupons (anyone remember last years $7 WYB Kingsford and BBQ sauce?). I still haven't converted them entirely....
I'll will definately try CryBaby's advice and ask the manager in that same tone/language. I really think the issue is that I just don't know the proper way to ask them.

Let us know how it goes! I really need to get up the nerve to talk to the manager at the gas station right next to my complex.

I have been wondering the same thing. My mother-in-law mails me her inserts, but I often miss deals waiting. I get my sister's and pick up a few at the gas station. Still trying to get the nerve to ask the clerk. Maybe when I pick up a copy on Sunday, I'll give it a shot.

We go for a walk the night before garbage pickup and "harvest" coupon supplements from recycling bins.
