I didn't get the Smart Source insert with my Orlando Sentinel, even had it redelivered and it wasn't in there again. Went to WAGS and bought more OS and NO Smart Source either! Did any others get it with their OS? I am hoping they haven't pulled out like they did in Tampa.

The Florida Today had NO P&G insert either. ARGH!
No Smartsource in my Orlando Sent either in Polk.

Wow, none of my publix will allow me to use more than 1 RR.
You either found someone who didn't know or your region has different rules.
No, you are mistaken. Click here.

I always inspect my newspapers before buying... sometimes the flyers are hidden in other sections, my P&G was in the sports section for some reason.
It isn't always this obvious. I said I went to multiple stores. Probably looked at 30 papers. I have no idea why it wasn't there. They are in the Sun-Sentinel and Herald I had delivered today, however. Clearly, it was an issue of machine/human error in all of my local newsstand editions yesterday.

Thanks to all the others who confirmed what I said, but I'm sorry it happened to you as well! nod

Had to laugh

Got a $5.00 gift card in the mail today from Publix. It was to thank me for my inquiry on their website for the Publix Calendar. They are sorry that it is no longer available (ha-ha) and wanted me to have the gift card in lieu of the calendar. Funny thing is they sent me a calendar.
Good for you!! I got the $5.00 gift card.... but no calendar!! Still, a nice gesture for them to send the gc! I do adore Publix! heartheartheart

It was NOT in the Ledger (Lakeland,FL) for the past 2 weeks. I just sent an inquiry to News America regarding it. Maybe the more people that contact them would help?

*whatever you type, try not to use any special characters including question marks. it will not allow you to submit if it contains any characters.

Only negative today was that NO Miami Heralds in my city had any Smartsource in them today. Had to pick up extra El Sentinels instead.

I'm planning on calling the Herald tomorrow and I told the Publix manager as well. Told the Publix manager that I'm not buying the Herald for anything but the coupons and the coupons ought to be there and it's 2 weeks in a row and that honestly Publix is being ripped off as well.

I actually blamed last week on the delivery driver snagging the Smart Sources for the BOGO pet food coupon. Once I crossed into a different route, I found all the inserts, and you could actually figure out the route by which stores had them.

Yesterday went to my Publix and again no SS insert. Decided on a different Publix after the lightbulb went off after the fact last week and I found the Heralds with ALL of the inserts. So 2 weeks in a row and the delivery driver/stuffer is not inserting the SS.

At least you can check the Heralds though. I just bought the Sentinel and it's missing the Red Plum.

Now it's making me wonder if the newspapers are trying to short change Vlassis and Smart Source by not printing enough inserts. I'll definitely contact Smart Source as well, that's a good idea.

In the Party Playbook Publix book there is a $1/1 any Ziploc.
In the new yellow Adv. Flyer there is a $1.50 for Zip Lock steam fresh bags.
They were $2.69 at my Publix so .19 cents.

Never tried them before, but looks like they might be a quick way for a fresh veggie.

Just so you know -- the drivers don't stuff the inserts for the Herald -- the inserts are bundled together with the travel section wrapped around them -- here in Miami they are all done by Goodwill workers and the drivers have to pick them up from the Goodwill warehouse and then place the entire bundle into the papers that they pick up from the Herald. There's a second set of inserts that gets bundled with the Parade magazine -- that set is bundled at the Herald warehouse. That one doesn't usually have coupon inserts, but about a month ago, just for one Sunday, they split them up between the two bundles.

The drivers don't get stacks of coupon inserts -- so if all the SS or RP are missing in a route either: 1) the driver(s) removed them all 2) they were never there in the first place because the people bundling them didn't put them in.

I'm thinking that we have taken all the gc's (which would explain why the website isn't working). There was a limited amount of 5,000 (or was is it 1,000??? - old age is rough) available. Just relax & hang on and grab the next one - deals come all the time and you'll hear about them here first!
