Newspaper Inserts Drive Sales

Inserts, also known as circulars or preprints, are where readers find the bulk of retailer coupons and advertisements. 62% of Plain Dealer readers agree that newspaper inserts influence their shopping decisions, and 69% of our readers said they used store circulars in the past 30 days.*

Inserts targeted by ZIP Code are available on Wednesday, Friday and Sunday in The Plain Dealer, and on Thursday in Sun News.
