Update on Coupons in the Idaho State Journal

The past 2 weeks we’ve received many emails and comments on facebook from Eastern Idaho readers who were frustrated that they weren’t getting the Smart Source coupons in their paper.   Thank you to reader Lisa for letting us know about this update Idaho State Journal put on their facebook page


We appreciate the interest and comments regarding the coupons in our newspaper, which are valued by many of our readers. We have been working diligently and in good faith with Smart Source to continue inserting the coupons into our paper and it was a surprise when they recently pulled them out. We are working very hard to get them back into the paper and hope that we will reach a new agreement with them within the next 30 to 60 days. We apologize for the inconvenience this has caused our subscribers and we will keep you apprised to any new developments.

So it looks like they are as frustrated as everyone else.  In the mean time, you can consider looking into Smart Source coupon inserts on eBay or Coupon Clippers to supplement your coupons.

    Aw, as a fellow couponer my heart goes out to you guys in Eastern ID!

    The Post Register in Idaho Falls still has the SS inserts…

  • Kari

    I feel for you too ; ( WHY would SS pull the inserts? Is there anything we can do to ensure they don’t pull out of our local papers?
    thanks for the news

      From what I was told is SS raised their price and the Journal don’t want to pay it. IDK but I hope they get them back soon!!
