Hello,

When I first got here, I was getting the Orlando Sentinel "Express Edition" for free in the mail (junk mail) on Wednesdays. But it wasn't steadily coming every week. I got the first one in a while this past week. If you want to consistently get sales papers, you will need to subscribe to the newspaper. If you just do Sundays, they will eventually send you Wednesday through Saturday for "free." (The ploy behind that is that you will expand your next subscription to include Wed-Sat. When you do that, you will eventually get Mon-Tues for "free" for the same reasons. The Wednesday-Sunday papers, which are the days all the stores put their ads in the paper, is about $25 for 13 weeks. You can also just go to the stores' websites and read the circulars there. If you are a couponer, go to southernsavers.com.

IT's all done by zip code depending on what the ADVO/Red Plum advertisers decide they want to deliver to you. If your neighbors aren't getting it either, there's not much you can do. If the neighbors are getting it and you aren't call the postmaster.

You can also contact the store. I know at Albertson's, if you go to the service desk, they will take down your info and make sure you get one.

Also, talk to your postman.

The free papers added to a person's subscription really aren't designed just to get someone to increase their subscription days later. It is done to boost circulation figures for advertisement revenue. The Wed-Sun is $19.....Sunday only $14. BUT, with the new Sunday Select advertising package, all the coupons should be in the Sunday delivery (as well as many are still in the Wednesday delivery.)

The coupons ads mailed on Wed are done by zip code. I'm not sure why some zips get them and some don't. Even among the Sentinel employees, some of us get them and some of us don't. They seem to send them out more to areas that don't get the paper.

That is all I know. Feel free to send me a message if you have any other questions.

I used to get them religiously. Then it suddenly changed to never, so I contacted the postmaster to complain. He spoke to my mailman, and the mailman said that he wasn't getting enough for everybody so he was only putting them in the mailboxes at the beginning of his route. Since I was near the end of his route, he ran out before I'd get one. The postmaster told him to be fair and alternate placing the circulars at the beginning and end of his route every other week so that everybody could at least get one circular every other week. However, I contacted the stores (Albertson's, which was in my area at the time, and also Publix) to get them to send me circulars themselves, and I also signed up with Red Plum (you can easily find their website online) for the other coupon deals that typically come in the mail. That solved my problem once and for all!
