Differences in the 3/7 Smart Source: Idaho Statesman vs Idaho Press Tribune

Rather than bore you with a long story, I’ll just tell you that for the past few Sundays, I’ve been getting SIX copies of The Idaho Press Tribune, and EIGHT copies of The Idaho Statesman. Yesterday as I started to stack my inserts, I was working on the Smart Source. Before I knew it, I was very confused! Suddenly I started seeing coupons in one SS insert that weren’t in the other SS insert! I immediately took a look at the binding on the inserts. Sure enough, they were two different inserts!

I knew there would be a few times in the year that The Idaho Statesman would get a separate General Mills insert that the Idaho Press Tribune (and many other Idaho papers) would NOT get. Needless to say, I was surprised to see the Smart Source insert from each paper holding different coupons inside!

Here is what the Statesman got that the Press Tribune (and many other Southern and Eastern Idaho papers) did NOT get:

Betty Crocker Fruit Snacks, all varieties .50/2
Chex Mix Bars, any flavor .50/1
Chocolate Chex Mix, 4.5 oz or larger .50/1
Fiber One 90 Calorie Chewy Bars .50/1
Fiber One Cereals $1/2

General Mills cereals, variety listed $1/1
Green Giant Valley Fresh Steamers frozen vegetables .50/2
Hamburger, Tuna, or Chicken Helper .75/3
Nature Valley Granola Bars or Granola Nut Clusters .40/1
Pillsbury Grands! Biscuits .30/2
Pillsbury Savorings Products $1/2
Pillsbury Sweet Rolls or Grands! Sweet Rolls .40/2
Pillsbury Toaster Strudel Pastries .40/2
Romano’s Macaroni Grill Dinner Kit $1/1

  • Yes, those are some pretty good coupons.
  • Yes, you’ll find many of these couposn at some point over at coupons.com and many General Mills company websites – i.e. {Betty Crocker}{Box Tops for Education} and{Pillsbury}.
  • BUT – every single one of these coupons listed above CAN BE DOUBLED (in most cases, the internet printable coupons CAN’T).

For me, it was enough to switch over to get The Idaho Statesman Multiple Subscription Newspaper Deal. You can read all about our multiple subscription deals here if you’re interested in making the switch, or if you’re just feeling ready to take your stockpile efforts to the next level!
