Star News vs News and Observer

Good morning! Well, technically it's the first of the month (since the first will fall before next Sunday). That means one thing- lots of coupons!

Today both the Wilmington Star News and the Raleigh News and Observer had all three major coupon insert packets- a Red Plum, a Smart Source and the monthly Proctor and Gamble.

Proctor and Gamble is the same regardless of which paper you buy, so let's compare the Red Plum and Smart Source inserts.

Overall, Raleigh had more coupons and a better selection, however, I found it interesting that Wilmington Smart Source had a few random coupons that were not in the Raleigh paper, such as Smithfield Bacon or Lunchmeat and Marinated Loin or Ham.  

The Red Plum insert was definitely better for Raleigh, as the Wilmington Red Plum was loaded with ads. 

Until next week!
