    I really enjoyed this post, I know first hand that company’s are in the process of boosting up security on their coupons. It is 2011! Technology is great, some people think it is just a piece of paper. Wrong, those bar codes can tell the company a lot of info. It is a digital finger print. * Did you know that when you print off of the internet the company can track your I.P. address to the print you receive. I have been couponing for awhile and unless you use the coupon as stated in the small print outlined by the manufacture, then YES you ARE committing fraud.
    Is It worth it? For what, a buck.
    I know my comment was a little bit of a rant but MOST COUPONERS would not even dream of handing over their coupons to the cashier without being 100% on their transaction.

    I read this on this Mama Loves Her Bargains. And I was like “good”. These people are committing fraud. And what’s worse is that he was teaching others to do the SAME thing. I’m sure he saved a lot of money, but it is still not worth it. If he thought this through he would have known that money is not worth the consequences that he is going to face if he gets caught.

    As far as information being gleaned from coupons — I am more suspicious of the ‘rewards’ cards merchants give out. They not only tell them what you bought, they identify who you are. The forms that have to be filled out give them a complete demographic to match the sale of products – who buys what, what age they are, where they live, do they rent or own, etc.

    Linda, loved your comment. But, I just had to see if there are any coupons for bail… And there are! http://www.retailmenot.com/view/zzzsbailbonds.com

    If you are arrested for coupon fraud, I wonder if they will still take your coupon?

    Mike, I wonder if Mr. Henderson made the coupon before he was busted just in case?!!!

    I agree with Heather, it’s not worth it for a buck.

    Linda- you made me laugh and then Mike actually finding a coupon for bail. I never would have thought! Maybe he did make the coupon just in case.

    It’s sad that we all have to deal with this type of behavior when we’re using coupons legally and just trying to save our families money
