Bring back the coupons!

As of February 1st 2009, RedPlum coupon inserts have been discontinued in many newspapers throughout major US cities. The Valassis Corporation, which distributes the RedPlum, does not realize how this will affect consumers like us and our ability to donate to the needy, keep our own pantry filled, and a host of other reasons.

Valassis has responded by saying that consumers can "now print coupons from their website," but the problem is that many stores refuse to accept internet printed coupons & this will limit how many coupons we can get.

Please join me & couponers from across the country fight this. Go here to post a comment on how this will negatively affect you and your family.

*Also, be sure to let the advertisers who use RP to distribute their coupons just how unhappy this has made you. The BringBackTheCoupons site has a page featuring ALL RedPlum advertiser contact links and a form letter you can use to easily do this.
