I’m sorry guys! I got a horrible virus and hid under the covers, so while you’ve been sending me worried e-mails, I haven’t had a chance to update you. Here I am now to give you the sad new…
Yes, it’s true!
I talked about Red Plum inserts disappearing from newspapers around the United States long ago, and now it’s our turn, Hoosiers.
Starting this weekend, the Indianapolis Star will no longer offer the Red Plum coupon insert. You may still be able to get it through a few local newspapers. I’ve also heard rumors that you may find them in the weekly Red Plum home mailer that comes on Wednesday and includes the Marsh Supermarket circular, but that’s not my understanding. My understanding is that simply includes local savings for services and not the grocery coupons. I can’t confirm or deny though, since I didn’t get mine today. Hopefully it will appear tomorrow and I’ll know for sure if our Red Plum is gone forever or just our days of buying multiple papers to get more of the best coupons.
Sigh… I just don’t even know where to start. Some stores, treat me like a criminal when I come in with Internet coupons and scrutinize every single one, so I tend to use insert and standard coupons more than anything else. I might just explode with frustration if I can’t get the Red Plum insert any longer! The coupons they offer online don’t even compare to the ones in the insert more often than not!
Update: My husband thinks exploding might be overreacting just a little bit and has convinced me to have a less dramatic reaction.
