Yea, uh-oh! I was reading last week that many grocery stores will NOT ACCEPT coupons from online. Why? I do not know so why are there coupons online to cut out and not being accepted in the grocery stores.

There have been some internet coupon fraud issues that have come up over the past few years. Many stores are limiting or not accepting the printed coupons at all. The companies that set up the printed coupons are getting better at limiting the number of coupons people can print from their computers, making people register so their names print out on the coupons, etc. Luckily in my area, internet coupons are still being accepted.

When my computer friend came over to check out the security on my computer, he said that two of the malware/spyware sites that were on my computer were coupon sites.

It didn't even occur to me that stores might not take the coupons.

(I never even used the ones I printed as they expired quickly and I frankly was not in the habit of using coupons anymore as I can hardly find one good enough to use in the last few years)
