Exclamation If it looks too good to be true...

In my previous post, I told you how some stores are cracking down on misredeemed coupons. Another form of misredemption that gives store managers gray hair (or worse!) is counterfeit coupons.

Many legitimate companies offer coupons on the Internet, and if you can use them, so much the better! But some chains have suffered financially by fraudulent high-value coupons (one recent example offered $24.99 off on the purchase of a $25 item, which is not only unrealistically high for you, it costs the store money with each fraudulent redemption). If the redemption value of that coupon looks too high, it's probably counterfeit. If you have any questions at all, check with your cashier or store manager. Most of them know of fraudulent coupons in circulation.

And whatever you do, DON'T REDEEM FRAUDULENT COUPONS. You could not only be busted for fraud, you could cost the cashier who takes such coupons his or her job...and we'll all end up paying more for it in the long run.
keepin' the beat goin' and passing it on!
