I think this is the same coupon that's been out because it's telling me I've already printed it.

I must have missed it earlier, because UT printed for me. Sorry! Eeks! Is it too late to blame it on the postpartum brain? :)

Cathy said...

I was on my phone leaving the comment last night. I guess when I wrote "it", it put in " UT". :)

That link to the coupon information is scary. So...when we buy coupons off eBay or The Coupon Clipper or something...I know it always says we're buying their time, not the actual coupons, but if transferring coupons is illegal...then, how is transferring them via eBay or a coupon service legal?

Since when is transfering coupons or selling them illegal?

My Albertson's did not have cinnamon toast crunch or lucky charms included in their General mills sale. Trix swirls were though, so my kids will be thrilled!

Melanie, did you follow the link to the Coupon Information Corp. site? It says pretty clearly that there is NO LEGITIMATE WAY to buy or sell coupons because manufacturers' politcies prohibit the transfer of coupons. I suppose it doesn't specifically say it's ILLEGAL, but using mfr. coupons in a way that is prohibited by the mfr can be considered coupon fraud, which is illegal.

Now, it seems that manufacturers have not filed lawsuits against sites like The Coupon Master and The Coupon Clippers and eCoupons, all of which transfer coupons, but I'm just not sure how this does not constitute a violation of their policies. They must be aware that this is going on, and maybe as long as the coupon is eventually used by some person in a legitimate manner (i.e., actually used to make a purchase of the actual products indicated), then they just look the other way. I'm just not sure. I was wondering if the Fab ladies had any ideas, since they know everything about coupons :)

IMO - if sharing coupons via ebay and such was illegal, it would have been shut down long ago. eBay is good about putting a stop to illegal practices, so I don't hesitate getting them from there.

Julie said...

No, I don't hesitate to do it, either. I mean, I know I'm using the coupons for their intended purpose. I'm just wondering why it's allowed if transferring coupons is against manufacturers' policies.
