News Cheap Sunday Papers

I know this sounds ironic, but I ventured into the WM today and asked the manager what they do with the Sunday papers if they don't sell them all. I was expecting "Oh, we return them back", or "Oh, we throw them away on Monday".

But I head something that was music to my ears...."Oh, we discount them to $0.75 and keep them around till they get sold on Monday".....YaaaY, I know what I'll be buying on Monday!

That's good news for me since I buy my Sunday papers or go look for them at gas stations after midnight on Monday.

So, I'd say...get brave...and go ask your WM workers about the Sunday papers...

Another idea here:
There are plenty of gas stations around town. I struck a bargain with two of them. They throw away their Sunday papers, inserts and all (I know....WHATTTT!).

So I talked the people there into letting me go through what didn't sell and pick out what I want in exchange for a milk shake or a beer. Now, all that sounds good great, but the local paper is pretty popular around here and we don't have that many remaining to make it worth my while so far.
Here's to hoping I get lucky tonight ;-)

Just be sure to check that the inserts are there. The first week I started couponing, I was thrilled to find a Sun paper on Mon. When I got it home, no coupons. And that was the first Sun in May so it should have had the P&G and SS inserts. Now I get mine at the Dollar Tree on Sat morning.

any deals will be based on agreement between the store and local paper, so ymmv based on where you live/what paper you are talking about

Our walmart sells them all week until they are gone, or the newspaper people pick them up the next sunday. when i first started couponing i could find them all week, now i'm lucky if there are any left by 11am on sunday. our local paper is only .98 on sundays anyways so no discount here. i also get them at the Dollar Tree store but they seem to be sold out all the time too.

Some of the Dollar Tree's around here don't do it, it's just a matter of finding one around you that does. I traveled 30 miles one way to do it but I was going to the flea market anyway . I hope you find something!

It's pretty crazy. I was at the flea market and there were people there other couponers I would assume with their "stock" that they were selling and they had 60 newspapers for sale for 50 cents, BUT they took all the coupons out. This one guy even told me "I wouldn't bother trying to find a Sunday paper with coupons, because there's a coupon shortage." I about died laughing from the ridiculousness of that statement haha.

I used to work for a newspaper route and there's no way they just randomly don't have coupons unless it's a holiday

My Walmart will let you price match the Sunday paper to Dollar Tree's price of 1.00. It's something worth checking in to. HTH!

Walgreens

I found my first discounted Sunday papers today! I've been paying full retail (gasp!) until today when I bought them for $1.39 at Walgreens. I haven't approached anyone at any stores to see what happens to the extras. I have trouble even finding them some weekends.

Recycling Sun paper

I picked up my papers at the Dollar Tree on Sat morning, took out the inserts and dropped the rest of the papers off at a couple of laundromats on the way home. I hate having to throw out unread papers.

I also recommend dropping your unread papers at assisted livings or group homes. They normally have only a couple papers to share between 10-20 residents.

We don't have a sunday paper where I am so the inserts get stuck in the saturday paper. Around here you have to get up at the crack of dawn to get a paper. By 11am you can't find one anywhere. I called my local newspaper and asked them what they do with the extra inserts...turns out they sell them for 20 cents each! I hardly buy papers anymore!
