Is my Coupon a Fake?

Links provided may be from affiliate programs which help support this blog. Thanks for clicking!

I am finding that more and more stores are really looking closely at the internet coupons that we use. I've seen lots of complaints about Walgreens, Target, Kroger

TOP TEN TIPS TO AVOID FRAUD
1. Use a reliable source to print coupons from. Yes, I recommend My CNY Mommy ;0) but we can make mistakes too so please alert us if you have any problems. Coupons.com, Target.com all very reliable!

2. Don't get mad at the store, they are getting lots of pressure from their corp. HQ and from the Manufacturer's themselves. So as consumers let's join forces with them learn all we can about the printable coupon and NEVER EVER COPY A COUPON, THAT IS FRAUD! THE STORE WILL NEVER GET REIMBURSED FOR A COPIED COUPON, YOU WILL BE HURTING US ALL IN THE LONG RUN!!

3. Also realize that the clerk who makes an all encompassing statement such as "we don't take any internet coupons" probably is incorrect, ask to speak to their manager.

4. Don't get mad when you have to wait to have a manger come look at your coupon, I have this happen all the time especially with all of the Kraft FREE item coupons I have used lately. The store associate doesn't want to get in trouble, so don't blame them for doubling checking.

5. Store managers want your (and mine) internet coupons, Another City Mommy spoke with about 7 Walgreens managers last week. Each store manager has to make a decision that is best for their store, if they are really getting hit hard with FRAUDULENT coupons they are going to have no choice but to crack down. Most are not accepting them if it won't scan, that seems reasonable to me.

6. Just because a coupon scans (such as a coupon for 120z works on a 60z. product) the store will never get reimbursed for that, so do not try and "trick the system" it will just hurt all of us in the long run.

7. Coupons that say ANY PRODUCT, truly that is what they mean, you are not being fraudulent by using it on a trial size product, that Manufacturer has decided that if you want to "try their product for free" then they are willing to let you.
8. Facebook pages of the actual company are legit, most are now mailing you the coupon because of fraud.

9. If you find a coupon that "sounds too good to be true" it probably is. A printable coupon for a free item is very rare these days and most stores will not even accept them anymore. If there are no size specifications then it is more than likely FRAUDULENT. Click here for a list that is up-dated on occasion.

10.Don't give up on internet coupons, you can contact me anytime with questions or concerns I am here to support, and advocate for you!
To put this into lay person terms:
  1. The unique 2-D barcode on the upper left is a different number for every coupon you print, even for a second print of the same coupon.
  2. The dotted line around the entire coupon is really text. It has your user id, the date and time and coupon offer information printed - repeating at least 35 times around the coupon. This is also printed at the bottom of the expiration date box.
  3. The long barcode at the bottom also has a portion of the unique 2-D barcode number in it. These barcodes are much more specific and very soon will be the barcode that is scanned in all stores!
  4. For some coupons (mainly coupon.com powered coupons) - there are yellow circles (for color printed) and gray circles (for black & white/gray scale printed). This along with a verifi #, indicate the coupon is valid.
Thanks, Shana for this info!
