You are NOT gonna like this news.....

First of all, happy Monday! I hope you all had a great weekend.

I got some disturbing news over the weekend, and thought I'd better share it as soon as possible so we can work through this together.

Has anyone else noticed that there haven't been any coupons in the Saturday Portage Daily Register for the last 3 weeks? I sure noticed but thought it was an oversight. Turns out there is a lot more going on.

The company that provides the coupons to the newspaper allegedly terminated their contract with the Daily register without warning a couple weeks ago, with no notice.

This same company is also planning to stop distribution to the Wisconsin State Journal as well within the next couple weeks.

Now I don't know about you, but that is the main reason I subscribe to the paper in the first place.

Where do we go from here? I'm not sure. Does anyone out there have a contact with the State Journal so we can verify this information? Do you have any ideas on how we can protest this? I don't think we should take this news without reacting. I need the coupons in order to provide food that is reasonably priced to feed my family. This will be a huge blow to my budget! I'm sure it is the same for you.

I want to thank Katrena for providing me with this information.

Please email me or comment if you have any ideas of how we can fight this war together! And spread the word!


  1. I was a reporter for one of the papers in that group. Email George Althoff...he's the publisher. He's a nice guy and can direct you from there.

    That really, really sucks!

    There are links all the coupons here, I have used them when I didn't get the State Journal.

  3. Kendra,

    I am definitely interested in hearing what response you receive from the paper. My Wisconsin State Journal Sunday home subscription runs out at the end of the month and if they discontinue coupons in the Sunday paper, I will refuse to renew my subscription and will be sure to tell them why!
