The Expert Clipper's Coupon Quiz

Q: Which of the following is a telltale sign of a counterfeit e-coupon? A. The e-coupon is not available on the manufacturer's own website. B. The e-coupon does not come with a bar code. C. The e-coupon is for sale on an auction site like Ebay. D. All of the above.

A: OK, the answer is D and you might think "D" stands for "duh" in this case, but many shoppers have been burned by counterfeit coupons. They are a real problem. First of all, you should never pay for coupons. (The one exception: charity coupon books.) The point is to save money not spend money, so avoid the cheaters selling coupons on auction sites. If you download e-coupons from the manufacturer's website or reputable websites, you will know they are real. Genuine coupon sites require you to download a small program that lets your printer create barcodes. This is how stores --and you-- know your coupon is legit.
