Where to Find SmartSource and Redplum Coupon Inserts in Canada

I’ve had numerous inquiries from readers wanting to know which newspapers they can find the SmartSource and Redplum coupon inserts in.  So, I decided to devote a post to this very matter!

Please note:  If your local newspapers haven’t been carrying the inserts, your best bet is to contact your local newspaper directly.

  1. I havent been receiving my redplum or smartsource coupons in my paper . I have phoned the paper and there useless they dont have a clue . So is there somewhere else to get a copy of them. Thanks Laurie

  2. Paul Van Alstyne says:

    Oshawa/Clarington This Week carries the SmartSource flyer in Oshawa, but not in Clarington. I’ve contacted the newspaper, but they said I need to contact SmartSource. Can anyone tell me how to contact them?

  3. Hi there
    I was just wondering if anyone knew if the inserts were actually in any of the Edmonton or red deer papers today Aug 6? I have not been able to track any down.

  4. Hi
    My weekly paper comes out on Fridays, will the RP and SS inserts be in that paper? New Brunswick Paper: The Tribune

  5. For what it’s worth…in Toronto anyway, in order to receive the coupon inserts you must subscribe to the weekend paper. It is usually Saturday’s paper they are in (Toronto Star/National Post) & Sunday Sun. They are NOT in the copies you buy at the store.

  6. …And I have NEVER seen a Red Plum anywhere. Until recently I thought they were in the US only.

  7. I went to 5 different vendors in West and Downtown Edmonton Saturday the 9th for the new SmartSource insert and came up with NOTHING. I’m so disappointed I missed my coupons. I emailed the Edmonton Sun about it but I heard nothing back:(

  8. Caleigh McGooken says:

    My advice for those in Edmonton is don’t waste your time or money with the Edmonton Journal if you’re hoping for inserts and flyers. They have not been adhering to the various dates for inserts posted here and on various manufacterers’ websites. After missing 4 inserts I finally decided to give up on them entirely. I’ve heard the Edmonton Sun is more reliable.

  9. I receive Mississauga News and have not once received Red Plum or Smart Source. I called Mississauga News they told me they can’t do anything about it because its the companies who say where they can distribute those things. So I called Red Plums contact number on the US website, they say they don’t have a contact number for Canada. Smart source doesn’t have a US or Canadian number. Why are these companies so shady about contact info!?

  10. Last time they were supposed to be in the Lethbridge Herald, and they weren’t, I had to buy the Calgary Herald to get some. Check the News paper to make sure it has them in it before you buy it.

  11. I bought 5 Toronto Sun and Hamilton Spectators and there were none in any of them. WHY??? I know people take them out without buying them, but how does that happen when I bout 10 papers from 4 different places??? These papers were on the LIST. I wasted $, I barley have. I emailed both papers asking for help. Does anyone know who, how and IF you can contact the company(ies) who provide the coupon inserts???

  12. I tried to pick up the Winnipeg Free Press today, as there were RedPlum and P&G Brandsaver coupons in my mother in law’s Saturday paper. But when I tried to buy a retail copy of the paper, the inserts were not there. Any thoughts on why? And are there an alternative source for these coupons this weekend??? Didn’t see them in the retail Winnipeg Sun either… 🙁


  14. regarding smartsource coupons, I didn’t receive mine last week and briefly looked up contact information online and couldn’t find it for smartshopper (I hate calling people I prefer to email on my own time etc…) not sure if those coupons come out on a weekly basis or if it’s sporadic….

  15. Is it possible to have these inserts mailed to my home. I don’t read the newspapers and would rather not waste them …even though they are being recycled…I’d just like to get the inserts. Is this possible? Thanks,

      Lisa, my best advice would be to contact your local newspaper to see if you can pick up the coupon inserts without grabbing a newspaper. Or you could ask friends and family that do get the newspaper, to save you their inserts!

      Hope that helps!

  16. Hi, I am just starting “couponing” and I am overwhelm!!! So much to learn! I live in Edmonton, AB and I see 3 local newspapers in your list. Is Smartsource and RedPlum attached to all these newpapers? Can I just look after one newpapers or I should look for them in all newspapres? Can I get these for free at the Library? If I get more the one thesame coupon can I match and use them in one item and have this item for free??? I see they do it that in US but here all the coupons I get saying you can not match with any other promotion and other limitations. Can you please expland that to me? Thank you!!!

  17. The Chilliwack Times hasn’t delivered the last 3 Smartsource and Red Plum inserts, is there any way I can contact the companies?

  18. Simply Frugal says:

    Charla and Melanie, here’s a link to the 2011 Smartsource and Redplum coupon insert schedule! http://simplyfrugal.wpengine.com/2010/12/canadian-coupon-insert-schedule-for-2011-smartsource-redplum/ Hope that helps!

  19. Hello, do you know when do they come out in the newspaper? Each week?
    Thank you. Melanie

  20. Wow – that’s an amazing list you’ve put together. Do you know what day these flyers would show up? Saturday or Sunday…

  21. Thanks u so much!!!!!

  22. Why is it that they don’t offer these coupons in the Vancouver Courier? Do you know who I might be able to contact to have them in the Courier?

  23. The regina leader post and the saskatoon star phoenix also have the inserts (Saskatchewan)

  24. This is a great post & a big help! I just love your site!! Thank you:)

  25. Thank you!
