I have received a lot of emails from other blogs asking me how on earth we were able to get Paper companies to sale us multiple Sunday papers for only .60 cents each. It took time, but it was well worth it!  In today’s economy companies are tight, just like everyone else.  They are all looking for ways to cut cost and earn money, and offering discounts is not at the top of anyone’s list.  One of my bloggy friends from Oregon has been desperately trying to get her paper to offer a discounted rate for couponers.  Her paper has not only told her NO but they have been very rude about the whole issue.

When the Statesmen raised their price to $2.00 a Sunday paper I worried that the Idaho Press Tribune would also raise their price, but I was told they do not plan to raise rates any time soon.  They have been able to open up a few new areas for delivery in Boise and with enough calls from you Boise Coupon Gals, they hope to soon deliver to all of Boise!  It took me a long time to find the right person who understood that there was a real need for a ” coupon special rate”  on the paper.  I am SO thankful that the Idaho Press Tribune is willing to help us all out and offer us this ROCK BOTTOM price of .60 cents for a Sunday Papers.

To read the details of how to get the daily paper plus 4 Sunday papers delivered to your door, for only $13.20 a month click here.  Call Greg at 208-870-2784 if you have any questions.  He really is one of the nicest guys you will ever meet.  I was so glad to find someone who did no think I was crazy when I asked if I could buy 4 Sunday papers!  If only I had found him a few years ago!

So Thank You Idaho Press Tribune for taking such good care of us, and helping me feed my family for a Thrifty Price!

If you ever have an issue with a missing coupon insert, or missing papers please call the customer service number 208-467-9252 right away and let them know.  They really want to provide the best service, but they can’t fix it if  they do not know what the problem is.

Maggie I don't think that idaho gets the best inserts. I order from a lady in florida who gets a lot of coupons we don't seem to get.yogurt cereal and razors etc

Could you ask them if they would be willing to mail them to us every week. I would pay for that. I live in Florida. I think a lot of people would pay for them to mail them...thanks, Maggie

I will have to check and see if boise walmart carries the idaho press tribune sunday edition. I have not seen it other than winco and when I opened the papers they had they were missing the doublers and one of the inserts. I have thought of calling the tribune and suggesting they make a bigger push to distribute more papers here in boise on sunday now that the statesman is so expensive. If anyone in boise knows a good place let me know

Shanika- right now I get the Daily Herald on Thurs and Sunday for 50 cents a week! If you ask them for the Savvyshopper deal- you get 5 Sunday papers for $16.?? a month! Hope that helps :)

I was missing one of my inserts and an Albertson's ad this last weekend. I called on Sunday and they told me they would credit me and get me the missing insert and ad on Monday morning with my Monday paper. Well, Monday morning came and there was no insert or ad with my paper. I called again and they said they would redeliver that paper to me that day. No insert showed up Monday and no insert on Tuesday either. I was very frustrated but decided it wasn't worth getting worked up over and gave up on it. I got extra inserts from my parents and from the paper at work so it made up for it. I appreciate that The Press Tribune offers our papers at a reduced price it would just be nice if they followed through like they said they would.

Charissa, I found out the there machines messed up on Sunday and they had a large group of papers that did not get inserts. I am sad to hear you did not get your papers.... Normally there customer service is very good. I think they got a bit overwhelmed with the huge number of missing inserts. i think it is still worth calling in and letting them know you STILL did not get your inserts. They need to make it right.

I've subscribed to the press tribune for a couple months and have had a lot of problems with missing inserts or ads BUT whenever I call they are ALWAYS apologetic and bring out my missing items the next day or two. So if you have problems with missing items then CALL THEM! Like Sarah said they can't fix it if they don't know there is a problem. And hopefully if enough people complain of missing inserts/ads they will do better at making sure they aren't missing in the first place. :)

I forgot about the price raise, so the Statesman papers are now $1.50 at WINCO and Walgreens. Not sure what Walmart raised them to.

Hollie, Walmart and WINCO all sell the Statesman Sunday paper until late Thurs night for $1 or less. The Walmarts in Nampa and Caldwell all sell the Press Tribune Sunday edition for less than .90 until late Thursday night. For some reason when they bring the Fri AM paper, they take away the Sunday statesman. Also the Walgreens drug stores also sell the Statesman and Press Tribune Sunday editions until gone, for less than Albertsons or Fred Meyer prices. HTH.

The Walmarts in the Treasure Valley sell their Idaho Press Tribune papers for $.85.That is cheaper than the Albertsons. If the paper that week is one with lots of coupons and doublers etc, even the Press Tribune is all sold out at Walmarts.

I would try stop at a caldwell or nampa to get the idaho press tribune. I think winco is the only one that I have seen carry it here in boise? Anyone know of any others since the statesman went to 2 dollars I need to find them on sunday also I have heard that in utah you can get bundled packs of the deseret news and the SLT at gas stations on sunday for 2 dollars total. That is 1 dollar a paper.

I am so grateful for the Idaho Press Tribune. I love having my papers sitting on my doorstep on Sunday. And although I don't "need" the weekly paper I am going to keep subscribing. Hopefully my weekly subscription will help them keep the price low. Thanks again for this great deal!!

Sadly I am one of the people wishing the Oregonian would give us a deal. $2 a paper makes it hard to get multiples every week. I hope that all of our comments & her hard work will convince them to change their minds :) I was wondering though...I will be passing thru Idaho in a 2 weeks on my way to Utah & would like to grab some newspapers @ your fantastic price. It will be a Wed & was wondering if you know of a location that would still have the Sunday edition out? Thanks for all your hard work & information...I check your site several times a day & love it!!!

Hollie, Almost all ALbertsons have them all week long...as well as walmart. Hope that helps...they will be $1.00 at the store but it is better than $2.00

I wonder if you can help all of us here in Idaho Falls with your coupon wisdom! We do not currently get the Red Plum or Proctor and Gamble inserts, which is very disappointing. We used to get them, but they have been discontinued for some time. Several of us have written and called, and the Post Register (our newspaper here) has even placed an advertisement in their newspaper that they are "working on it". But they have been working on it for several months now...at least since I started couponing in January. I personally am on the verge of cancelling my daily subscription and simply buying the cheaper Blackfoot paper, but before I do so I would like more information: * Does the newspaper have to pay Red Plum (or SS, or P&G) to include their inserts in their newspapers? * Does Red Plum base their distribution on the numbers of coupons redeemed? (we heard that "Red Plum had pulled out of this market") So, since you are coming to Idaho Falls, I hope you can help us. We need to be empowered with information so we can go to the Post Register and plead our case. So many people are couponing now, the RP coupons would be redeemed in vast numbers here. THANK YOU...and thanks for this site, I love it.
