Local Insert Review (Northeast Tennessee)

Well, the Bristol Herald-Courier’s coupon selection was a little disappointing this week (the RedPlum was almost non-existent), but the Knoxville News-Sentinel tried to make up for it. The SmartSource inserts were almost identical between the two papers. Today (and from here on out, unless I’m on vacation or can’t get hold of a given paper…which does sometimes happen with the Knoxville paper) you’ll be able to find the current (and historical) coupon insert listing for these two papers over on my Local Coupon Listings page.

Here are the highlights:

Bristol Herald Courier

As mentioned, the RedPlum was lackluster, though it did include a couple of what I think of as ‘unadvertised” coupons. That is, they were not included in the many lists of coupons available online ahead of time. These include:

Jimmy Dean Fully Cooked Sausage product Save $1.00/1
Jimmy Dean Sausage Roll products Save $1.00/2
Land O’Frost Premium One Pound $.55/1
Land O’Frost DeliShaved $1.00/2
Land O’Frost Sub Sandwich Kit $1.00/1
PolarMeds $15.00 off your first order

I imagine the PolarMeds offer is probably available to others outside the NE TN area, simply because it is an online site ( as well as an 800 number (800-681-0196), but note that the $15 is of of orders over $75, and the offer expires 3/31/10. There was also a whole slew of Long John Silver’s coupons on the front cover. I’m not a huge fan, but every once in a while I get a hankerin’ to get my grease on for cheap, so I usually put this type of coupon sheet in my back seat for quick drive-thru savings.

Knoxville News-Sentinel

The Knoxville’s RedPlum was Unilever-branded, so it was chock-full of goodies, including a few HVCs. In the SmartSource, we again see some online coupon codes being printed which I’m sure can be used beyond the NE TN area. They are: 15% off Coupon Code NAVD2 $10 off plus free shipping over $35 code SMART729

The only thing the Knoxville SmartSource had that the BHC’s didn’t was a Beggin’ Strips 6oz BOGO coupon. Both papers had a coupon currently near and dear to my heart, which is good on Efferdent 78 ct or larger or Effergrip 2.5 ounce $.55/1 (3/31). In case you weren’t aware, GlaxoSmithKline and Procter & Gamble is currently embroiled in a number of lawsuits over their PoliGrip and Fixodent denture adhesives (respectively), because they contains zinc.

Zinc, taken into the body without a mitigating dose of copper, can cause anemia, neuropathy, zinc poisoning, and even bone marrow failure. My mother has been using these products for close to 50 years, and is unfortunately showing some of these symptoms. So I am doing all I can to at least prevent further poisoning, even if we can’t reverse the damage that has already been done. I have been hunting high and low for some place local that sells Effergrip adhesive, as it is one of the few (supposedly) widely-available formulas that does not contain zinc.

I did manage to find her a tube of another zinc-free adhesive at CVS the other day, called Cushion Grip, but at $7.99 per 1 oz tube, and no coupons in sight, it’s a little more expensive than she’d like. It is also a thermoplastic compound, which requires a very different method of usage, which may wind up being too cumbersome for Mom to want to bother with every few days…the jury’s still out on that though, so we’ll see. On the bright side, because it requires replacing less often, it is at least a bit more environmentally friendly!

Update: Although I lost my dear mother, I still believe it is important to spread the word about zinc-containing denture adhesives. for this reason, I created an informational site: 8-15-10 Weekly Coupon Insert Listings for Bristol Herald Courier & Knoxville News Sentinel Are Up
