New Legislation Gives Coupons “Equivalent Cash Value”

submitted on April 1, 2011 by DebsFreebies in "Member's Lounge"
An old law, established over 80 years ago, has been overturned, making those coupons you clip every week a whole lot more valuable. It also means that coupons will most likely be disappearing from the weekly circulars very soon, or risk bankrupting the issuing companies. So if you’ve got them, hold onto them!

Companies that have issued coupons now have no choice but to honor the value of the cash on the front of the coupon with an equivalent cash offer. And that means you can cash in big time by collecting those coupons currently in circulation, and mailing them off to the issuer.

    I don't know if I'm going to try and "cash" in, as the article states, or not.

    What about you?

    I would rather wait it out. I don't want to see coupons disappear! This is going to be interesting to watch. But since today (4/1 only) I am rich and famous "Who needs coupons?" Big Grin

    Lmao @ Halle Berry. Now wait a minute. I'm Steven Spielberg. I'm rich, I'm famous and I've made movies that possibly some of you have acted in, but I will tell you in a minute, that I'm not above the common folk. I still shop at the 99 cent store and use coupons all the time. Mr Green

    You are correct! Since I am going through a nasty custody battle (4/1 only) I have spent a lot of my hard earned $ on lawyers. I too use coupons!
