There will be 2 inserts in this weekends papers. 1 Smart Source and 1 Red Plum.
For those of you who are in the NJ Star Ledger area and have been following the disappearance of the Red Plum insert, here is what has been determined.
Apparently there is a Red Plum insert that is only in the Thursday delivered newspapers. You can not get it in the store bought copies. Possibly this is the Star Ledgers way of boosting their subscriptions. The only negative to this is that now you can only get 1 copy of the Red Plum. That does not work for me. According to my contact at the Star Ledger, this is just a temporary situation. I am not totally convinced on that so I will continue to find new solutions.
I have been told that the Bergen Record has both the Smart Source & the Red Plum but that didn’t seem to be the case for the store bought copies. There is something about those store bought copies, huh? I am too far for a subscription but again you run into that same situation where you will only wind up with 1 set of inserts, the ones from your subscription.
I know others, like areas in Somerset County, are getting both inserts in their local newspapers so I am going to make it my mission this Sunday to see what I can find and where.
In the mean time, if you would like to see what will be in the inserts this weekend and see if you even want to worry about the Red Plum, then go here to check out the Sunday Coupon Preview.
