Well it looks like the fuss we made about the missing coupon inserts paid off, CBS 5 did a few interviews with our readers and our blog post got the attention of the Contra Costa Times. Last night Michael Switzer left the following comment on The Frugal Find:
An error in scheduling caused the newsstand copies of the Times to be without coupon inserts on a couple recent Sundays. That problem has been corrected and you should have found quite a few coupon inserts in this past Sunday’s paper. If you purchased a paper without inserts and would like a refund, please contact our office (925-302-1710) and we will take care of your request. We are pleased that so many shoppers take advantage of the money-saving coupons in the Times and are very sorry for the inconvenience this problem may have caused you.

Thank you all for bringing this to our attention and for speaking up about this issue. I still have an awesome deal in the works for the following newspapers: (San Mateo County Times, Marin Independent Journal, Oakland Tribune, Alameda Times-Star, Santa Cruz Sentinel, Monterey County Herald, San Jose Mercury News, Contra Costa Times, The Daily Review, Tri-Valley Herald, Fremont Argus)
I just wanted to hold off until we got this issue resolved, so hopefully that’s the end of that!
