Getting Clipped by Coupons - See the newest counterfeits

submitted on September 9, 2010 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
It’s a scam that’s more likely to disrupt the checkout line than your credit line. So why should you care about a current surge in counterfeit coupons?

Well, try to use them and you could pay a price far greater—would you believe getting arrested?—than any savings you might get if the checkout clerk is fooled by the coupon and gives you the discount.

    Some of the fakes are so bad I'm surprised that the store accepted them!

    I really hate these people. They are the singular major reason that its getting harder and harder to use Internet based printable coupons, which now make up the bulk of my coupon savings.

    For those of you who missed it, you may get a laugh out of my previous comment on the same mater.

    With the effort these counterfeiting idiots are putting forth, they could probably find more, legitimate coupons on the internet.

    I've had to deal with some grief quite a few times when trying to buy LaCroix at Walmart with my $1.25 off coupon.
