I had a local Indianapolis Star newspaper subscription for several years (starting with a deal, of course), and read the front of every section that wasn’t Sports or Fashion or something equally useless. Then it all went in the litterboxes. But once the price became $17 a month and I was so busy that weeks of it would be in piles, waiting for me to skim it (it did still all go in the litterboxes eventually!), I decided to cancel. I have friends and family who save newspapers for me for my household uses (yes, I’ve dumpster dived for it before), and I still don’t have time to read the paper. All I really wanted were coupons and ads, so lately I’ve purchased the Sunday paper to get them.
In today’s purchased paper I found a deal to have the ads and coupons delivered free to my home! Finally, saving money and trees and getting just what I need.
Want free Sunday ads and coupons in Indianapolis? Through March 31, go to IndyStar.com/specialoffer and enter the promo code YesFree.
…if you live in a target area where they want your business, apparently. I live right in the middle of the urban-ness of it all and the ad was inserted in a paper I bought at a local gas station.
I just got this email:
