If i am only interested in the coupons, will some stores sell Sunday's Charlotte Observer on Monday at a discount? I know some stores did that with local newspapers in other states..

Thanks.

Smile Bi lo's

Got the sunday paper on Monday. still had to pay full price. But I never thought to ask for only the coupons at a discount. I prefer to read the whole paper.

I know other places will have a special number to call to request buying an old paper at a discount. You might try calling the Charlote Observer and see if they'll do something like that.

Geez...buy the paper! wow... you are using the coupons..just buy it like everyone else. I don't love that paper myself but the coupons alone are worth the lousy 2 dollars 5 times over...

if there are certain coupons that you want, it would be cheaper to just buy them in bulk on ebay.. also some areas get better coupon then others like a .75/1 compared to a .50/2 for the same product..

Sbbi98, I know what you want. In NYC, if you went to the store after a certain time at night (after 7), they would give you the paper for free. They would remove the cover page to get unsold credit and give you the paper for free. All I can say is get friendly with your neighborhood store and ask them outright. It doesn't hurt to ask. They have so much coupons left after they insert them in papers and probably would gladly hand them over.

I'm pretty sure libraries don't keep the coupons, just the "newspaper". But maybe they would have them in a recycle bin or something (for a one-time favor; they're unlikely to start saving them for you on a regular basis).

Looks like the cost of liberalism is eating into profits, again.

The Charlotte Observer will lay off 26 employees in an effort to battle continued revenue declines, publisher Ann Caulkins announced today.
