No, I don't want a deluge of junk mail but I miss receiving the 'Purple Pak' on Wed. and the occasional Penny Saver after moving. Any phone number or website to check?

I actually like getting the Purple Pak on Wed. It gives me a day to decide if I still want to take advantage of the weekly sales that end on thursday or wait for the Friday sales. I wish they would go back to Sunday sales schedule (because now, they will advertise double coupons, but you have to wait until the Sunday paper comes, but the special started Friday, and usually ends on Monday). Hate that with a passion. LOL.

I still get them on Wednesdays. The Purple Pak now has the Pennysaver in it where I am. It also has all the local circulars with the exception of Key Food, which comes on Thursday in another small Pennysaver-sized paper called Xtra (I think that's the name). When I get home I can look at the Purple Pak and see if there is a phone number, website, etc. for you.

If you want the purple pak you have to contact NEWSDAY! They are the ones who put it out.I thought they were getting rid of it altogether but if it is still around call them.If you get home delivery of Newsday,they automatically take you off the list to get PP through the mail.I work for the post office so I know this well.

I don't know what's up with my mail carrier.... Sometimes I get the Purple Pak, sometimes I don't. The Pennysaver or Yankee Trader or South Bay Neighbor comes or it doesn't.

It's insane if it's not that stupid purple pack it's some van throwing crap on my lawn. Everyday my mailbox is stuffed with more garbage.

If you get a purple card then you get a PP.If you're at the end of the route he also might be running short or he's a douche.

By the time I got home last night, my clutter-hating husband had already tossed the Purple Pak. I should get the new one today. Will let you know what I find out.

It's funny, I just dropped them but I remember receiving the PurpPak in the mail as well as receiving the same circulars in the paper. I will give 'em a call and see if they can send them out to me.
