Buying Sunday Papers

I don't know why I didn't think of this before until I saw somebody posting about it.

Iím going to start buying extra sunday papers with my ECBs, does anybody know if CVS discounts their papers at the end of the day or sell it on Mondays like Walgreens for $1?

I know this week (4/24) is the week that doesn't have coupon inserts.

this is going to be different in every city, based on the deal CVS makes with the local paper

in my area, this is controlled by the newspaper, not CVS

there is no CVS corp program of discounting papers...that I know of

I didn't even think Walgreens does this. The Wags by my house never discounts their papers.

There is a company that sells just the inserts. I don't think I can mention the name here. I buy my inserts on Friday morning and they arrive via priority mail on Monday or Tuesday. They are cheaper than buying the whole newspaper even with shipping


Update
I can no longer recommend this company. They are always out of stock, they have jacked their prices so high it cost almost double the price of t our Sunday paper to purchase from them,

Get a roll of quarters, drive down to the local mini mart and buy extras. If I gave you the name of this company, I'm sorry.

You know I spoke to my paper route guy and he said they get the coupons Wednesdays and weeks in advance.

No one here ever discounts the paper - it's $2 no matter when you buy it.

I've seen people asking for inserts in my area on craigslist.

Don't know if any of them got a response, maybe I should email them and find out.

I use ecb's and rr's (at Walgreens) to buy extra Sunday papers (depending on which ecb/rr that I have more of that week). The stores in the Houston TX area don't discount the papers. I've asked about getting a deal on the unsold papers but the cashiers tell me they don't have the authority to do that. I've noticed over the last few months that the stores tend to sell out of the paper, especially when the P&G insert comes out.

I had asked our Houston Chronicle home delivery distributor (this was a year or so ago) about buying just the inserts and she said they didn't get any extras, only what come with the subscribed papers. I'd much rather use ecbs and rr's anyway!

I go to my local coffee shops that end up recycling unsold newspapers. I've been going there for years and have a relationship with the people who work Monday mornings and since all I want are the inserts - not the actual paper - they still get credit from the newspaper company and I get my coupons!

The Walmarts here have papers for about half price, so I go very early Sun. morning. They are all sold out at about 8am already. Last week I was told that a man came in and bought 125 papers!

Yes, no inserts almost always on holiday weeks. I remember once there was a P&G insert in a holiday weekend paper.
