Hampton Roads readers living on the Peninsula have been hearing rumors that The Daily Press will no longer be including coupons in any of the papers purchased at the store. The rumor indicated that the only way to get coupons is to have the paper delivered. I talked with A Frugal Chick who is my go-to person for all things on the Peninsula. She emailed Nicole at The Daily Press and asked her about the rumors. Below is the notice Nicole received from her contact:
“It is absolutely true that you will not be guaranteed the same amount of coupons when you buy a single copy from the rack. However, we always try to put at least one coupon insert in the single copies when we can… we service (home delivery) customers first.
The rumor that the Daily Press will no longer offer coupons in single copies is false. We cannot tell you how many coupons will be included in the single copies each week, because our Sunday home circulation is growing, but the intention is to include at least one insert in the single copy stand newspapers.”
If you want extra copies of the coupons you will still be able to get them from The Daily Press at your local store; however, please make sure to check the paper before you purchase it! This rule is true for all papers at the newsstand. I AWALYS flip through my paper before heading to the register.
