Do Ruby Tuesday and others issue unique one-time use coupons?

submitted on February 18, 2012 by HouTex in "Coupons / Coupon Codes"
I'm starting this topic to offer the information I have and to encourage others to comment about it, since some merchants and restaurants seem to be issuing coupons that can only be used by the recipients. One of those is Ruby Tuesday, and we've also seen this with CVS and American Eagle coupons.

I think Ruby Tuesday distributes their coupons in 2 ways, normally by direct email or occasionally through facebook. Their facebook offers can be posted on Buxr because they provide a link to the form that allows you to sign up and receive your own unique coupon by email, like this deal http://www.buxr.com/deal/ruby-.....book_95286 .

The Ruby Tuesday direct email coupons always have text below them that states "this is a unique code and can be used only once." Some of those coupons have been creatively cropped to remove the text below them and posted on other sites. The unique codes are still visible, but the text is missing, leading some to believe they could be shared. The emailed coupons are also made up of multiple images, making it impossible to link to the entire coupon without doing a screen capture. For this reason I believe they are trying to limit distribution.

This is how the original complete coupon looks:

    Meaning they can only use the coupon once! They also distribute in the newspaper. The deal should not have been cancelled. I guarantee that RT will accept the coupon. I have used it before in Orlando without incident.

    Here is the (now rejected) deal that clover refers to:

    I am pretty sure that some if not all of the images on Google are edited to hide the 'unique code' message. It is fairly easy to do so because the message is at the very bottom and all you have to do is crop the image size in any editor

    Thanks for the information. Didn't knew that these are one time only coupons. Even then it doesn't hurt to try them in your local ruby tuesday. If it is accepted, well and good and if not, you are out of luck.

    Not all Ruby Tuesday codes are "Unique." The member's only codes are unique. I still disagree. I will continue to research and get back on this subject. Cool

    Rather than submitting my opinion I'm offering a link to the page you use to sign up for coupons w/ Ruby Tuesday. Look to the bottom of the page for info on the unique codes.
