UTAH Readers: Say good bye to REDPLUM Inserts?!?!

We've got a lot of Utah readers, and since this DIRECTLY affects you, I wanted to post it!!

Idaho could be next!!

From PYP:

In August, Utah consumers will lose half of these coupons when Red Plum coupon insert distribution is discontinued in the Utah market. Valassis Communications, publisher of the Red Plum coupon insert, has opted to distribute the coupons by mail. The problem for Utah consumers is that the direct mailing will be in targeted areas only. There are many coupon users who do not live in these targeted areas and will not be receiving the coupons. These mailings will also be limited to one insert per household. Many coupon shoppers currently purchase more than one Sunday newspaper to obtain more than one copy of the money saving coupon inserts. This provides Utah consumers with increased purchasing power and an effective way to combat the economic stress.

Join us in telling Valassis Communications "Don't cut my coupons!"

Spread the word about this story! Get your friends and family involved. Forward the link to this page, blog about it, post it on your Facebook profile, Tweet it, whatever it takes to get the word out. We can make a difference and keep our coupons. Consumer influence has worked in other coupon markets. Let Valassis know that we don't want them to cut our coupons!

On http://www.dontcutmycoupons.com/, you can contact companies that advertise with Valassis and let them know that you are not happy about this change. We've made a list of advertisers to make it easier for everyone to express their opinion.

Visit us at http://www.dontcutmycoupons.com/ and make your voice heard!

Also, please sign our Online Petition against this action!

Right now in Idaho Falls we already don't get them. We haven't had them for awhile now. Supposedly the paper is getting them back this next week though.

WAY out here in Rhode Island, we receive Red Plum in the mail. They arrive Wednesday or Thursday before the "Sunday Date" on the coupons.

I have my neighbors who aren't using them save them for me. (I was surprised at how many just throw them away! *gasp!*) Just an idea if it eventually happens that they'll be mailed in Utah!
