Why I reccomend buying the Phoenix paper....

>> June 28, 2010

I didn't find these 2 coupons in the Tucson paper yesterday, only in the Phoenix (Arizona Republic). These are a great example of the good coupons that we miss out in Tucson. Now maybe you don't care about Stay free or M&M's (Seriously who doesn't NEED M&Ms?), but these coupons are just the tip of the iceberg. I would guess Tucson only gets about 1/3 of the "good" coupons.

Both of these coupons should give you 2 freebies at CVS this week. Both Mars (M&Ms) and Stayfree are BOGO on sale this week. Combine this with the BOGO coupon and you get 2 free!! If you don't use these products, you can always give them away to friends/family or donate them.

Plus if you happen to have a nice $3/15 or $4/20 CVS coupon, these products are a great way to bring up your purchase total allowing you to use the nice $4/20 Q!

Here is an example of how this could work for you if you had 2 sets of these Qs:

4 Stay Free Products $4.49 each - BOGO Sale- (2) BOGO MQs= free
4 M&Ms $0.89 each - BOGO Sale - (2) BOGO MQs= free

Your subtotal will be $10.76.
Now you can add $9.24 in other items... and your subtotal will be $20!
Use your $4/20 CVS Q and your MQs
You will only pay $5.24 + tax for your order!

This is one way I use freebie Qs or BOGO Qs to my advantage even if I won't use the product. I then just throw the product in my donate pile! The Qs help me lower my overall bill+ I get to donate more stuff to people that need it!

Win Win!!

So I rambled a little off topic here.. but back to the original intent of this post. The Phoenix paper is almost always much better for coupons! I get 5 copies of it each week!

Do you know if it's possible to buy the Sunday Phoenix paper on Monday?

Hi Linda,
I am not really sure, but you could try calling a couple stores and see if they are still available. I never have found one that sells them on Monday, but I haven't tried looking that hard either.
If there is a specific coupon you want you could try ebay or a coupon clipping site. That is what I would resort to at this point... sorry..
I hope that helps, or at least answers the question!

The Arizona Republic is a left wing organ of the Democratic party. You have to be kidding! Give those socialists any money to support socialism. How's hope and change workin for ya?

I agree the Tucson paper is terrible for coupons. Do you know if there's a deal for the Sunday Arizona Republic? Also did you get the $1/1 Sabra Hummus coupon? It was supposed to be in yesterday's smartsource.

Wowzers! I do preview comments before publishing them, to avoid spam, and nastiness. However, I have to say besides some spam comments, I have only rejected one comment before today.

I was tempted to reject the 1st ANON comment, but it was SOOOOO silly that I had to share it with you guys... I found it ridiculous, I mean this is a coupon/deal/frugal type blog. There is nothing political about it... unless I am missing something.

ANON:
Perhaps you didn't read my actual blog post, but I do believe the focus of the post was comparing the coupon inserts from 2 different newspapers. Oh and I did explain how to use coupons to your advantage at CVS this week. Maybe you commented on the wrong blog??

Hi ANON!

What a great and appropriate question for this blog post! :-)

I happened to get this link in my email today for a AZ republic deal.

https://subscribe.azcentral.com/circpromos/promopages/p6_24sl_c2k_blast_ef24.php
It looks like the sunday+Wed for $0.75 a week.

If you are looking for a deal on more than one copy, you can see the link at PYP here for a deal they have worked out...

However the $0.75 deal is hard to beat!

I didn't notice the Sabra coupon, nor do I see it listed on PYP. Here is their AZ coupon list, which is based on the Phoenix paper.

Thanks for the tip!

Also, you can subscribe to the AZ Republic w/airline miles (at least Delta and Continental) if you have them. I had some that expire soon, and in subscribing to the AZ Republic, I'm getting the paper (only for the coupons, really) plus saving my miles from expiration.
