Star News vs. News and Observer

This week there were two inserts in both newspapers for me. I had a Red Plum and a Smart Source in each paper. At first glance, the Wilmington Star News inserts feel thinner; let's take a look and see which actually had more coupons.

The Wilmington Red Plum had coupons for: Loreal Paris eye products, Loreal Paris hair styling products, shampoo, and treatments, and Loreal Paris Skincare, Rhodes Cinnamon Rolls, Superpretzels, Renuzit Adjustables, and LandOfrost wrap kits or sub sandwich kits.

The Raleigh Red Plum had all of the above PLUS Whiskas cat food, Uncle Ben's products, Soft Scrub, Right Guard, Dry Idea Sticks Deoderant, Pupperoni, ERASE Face Lift, Milo's Kitchen Dog Treats, a ton of vitamin and supplement coupons, Special K Bars, Newman's Own Salad Dressing, Salsa and Pizza, Vanity Fair Napkins and some Target-specific coupons for Charmin, Bounty, Bounty Basic. 

The Raleigh Red Plum is the clear winner!

The Wilmington Smart Source insert had coupons for: Reynold's Wrap Pam Liner, Luden's Cough Drops, Kibble Select, People Magazine, Chock Full o Nuts, Blistex, French's Mustards, Pepsi, Lays Dips and Chips, ershey's and Reece's Candies, Johnsonville Sausages, Reynold's Wrap Foil, Reynold's Slow Cooker Liners, and the Olive Garden.

The Raleigh Smart Source had coupons for all of the above except the Luden's Cough Drops, Kibble Select, Blistex.

The Raleigh Smart Source ALSO had coupons for the following products that were not included in the Wilmington paper:

Kraft Dressings, Zone Perfect Bar or Multipack, Betty Crocker Cake Mix and Frosting, Cheerios, Yoplait Yogurt, Yoplait Greek Yogurt, Pepperidge Farm Baked Naturals, Pace Picante Sauce, Nathan's Fries, Potatoe Pancakes and Onion Rings, Swanson Canned Chicken, Orville Reddenbacher's Popcorn, Hunts Canned Tomatoes, Game Ball Icecream Cake, Franks Red Hot Sauce, Red Baron, Tony's or Freschetta Pizzas, White Castle Burgers, Sargento Cheese, A1 Steak Sauce, Mt. Olive Pickles, Tyson Anytizers, Bissell Carpet Cleaning Powder or Foam, Bissel Stomp and Go Pads, Theraflu Products, Triaminic, Fleishchmann's Yeast, Budweiser Sauce, Real California Cheese, Finish Products, French's Worceshire Sauce, Neosporin Essentials, Oscar Meyer Carving Board or Cold Cuts, Lunchables with Fruit, Velveeta Cheese, Heluva Good Dips, Whonu Nutrition Rich Cookies, and Soothie Eye Products.

Well, the obvious conclusion for this week is to get the Raleigh News and Observer newspaper if you can get your hands on it! It DEFINITELY has more coupons this week!
