Star News vs. News and Observer

Well, I hope you have your scissors ready because it's going to be one of THOSE mornings!

Both the Raleigh and the Wilmington newspapers contained four inserts for me- 1 Proctor and Gamble, 1 Smart Source, and 2 Red Plum, inserts. The Proctor and Gamble inserts are both the same. At first glance, the Wilmington inserts definitely felt thinner than the Raleigh inserts, especially the Red Plums. Let's take a closer look.

The Wilmington Smart Source has coupons for: Everybody's Nuts Pistachios, Vlassic Pickles, Texas Toast Croutons, Revlon, RidX, Efferdent, Kraft Homestyle Mac n Cheese, Smithfield Bacon, Nexium, Heinz, Air Wick, and Eggland's Best Eggs, plus ChuckECheese. 

The Raleigh Smart Source has coupons for all of the above minus the Nexium and Vlassic Pickles. It also had additional coupons: El Monterrery Snacks, Biz, Blue Diamond Nuts, Marzetti Dressings and Dips, Kleenex Hand Towels, Dannon Yogurt, Totinos Pizza, Pizza Rolls and Pizza Stuffers, Pillsbury, Chex Mix, Fiber One, Spot Shot, 2000 Flushes, Prevacid, Carpet Fresh, and X14 Stain Eliminator for Mold and Mildew, Speed Stick, Irish Springs, Palmolive, Softsoaps, Colgate, Colgate Toothbrushes, Dole Fruit Cups, Bayer, Revlon, Land O Lakes Deli Cheese, Kraft Mac n Cheese, Opti Free, Genteal, I Caps, Planters Peanuts, Hebrew National, Alka Seltzer, Mira Lax, Qnol and Scotch-Brite Wipes. There was also a neat Colgate rebate, too.

Clearly the Raleigh Smart Source wins as far as sheer number of coupons.

On to the Red Plum. Both papers had two Red Plum inserts. Let's look at each one.

Wilmington Red Plum number one had coupons for: Hardees, Cooked Perfect Meatballs, Riceworks, Furmanos Tomatoes, and lots of ads!

Raleigh Red Plum number one had coupons for: I Can't Beleive it's not butter, Lipton, Hellman's Wishbone, Ragu, Bertolli Frozen Meals, Dove, Caress, QTips, Dove Deoderants, Dove Soaps and Body Wash, Degree Deoderants, Vaseline, Knorr Rice Sides, Lipton Recipe Secrets, Lipton Cup o Soup, Hillshire Farm, Smoked Sausage, M&Ms, Cheeze-Its, Goodlife Cat Treats, Furmanos, Pedigree Dog Treats, Estracell Sponges and Brillo Pads, Cooked Perfect Meatballs, Vitamins, Tums, Porcelana, Riceworks, and Hardees.

The Raleigh Red Plum #1 is the winner again!

Finally, let's look at the second Red Plum.

The Wilmington Red Plum #2 has coupons for: Marcal Paper Towels, Napkins or Bath Tissue, Digiorno, Loreal, and Cici's Pizza.

The Raleigh Red Plum #2 has coupons for: Fancy Feast, Purina, Tidy Cats, Whisker Lickins, Mighty Dog, Tiny Bonz, Purina, Chef Michaels for Pets, Digiornos, CoffeeMate Natural Bliss, Stouffers Lasagne, Carnation, Boost, Loreal, Minute Rice, Dole Pineapple Cans, Kettle Brand Chips, Emerald Nuts, Pop Secret Products, Centrum, Advil, Robistussin, Dimetapp, Thermacare, plus a $10 Rebate on those Pfizer products, Marcal Paper Products, Pringles, Eucerin, and Cicis Pizza.

Again, the Raleigh paper wins for most coupons.

So, obviously, if you can get a Raleigh paper today, it will be well worth your while! So many awesome coupons are available, for pets and people!
