Today we are talking about the “Rules of the Game”. Yes, there are actually rules to couponing. Don’t worry, they are very simple! If you ever have a question about coupons or how to use them, I suggest you read the Coupon Information Center page. They have even recently updated their page to accommodate all the “craziness” that has come with the TLC Extreme couponing. They have a TON of great information.
Here are the 3 big “No-No’s”.
- Do not photocopy coupons -not any of your coupons (paper or printable).
- Only use a coupon for the product written on the coupon. Each coupon is a contract and should be used only for the item described in writing on the coupon itself. (remember, it is the words that are important)
- Do not buy coupons -When you buy coupons, you could be purchasing stolen or counterfeit coupons. Since you cannot be 100% sure that they are legitimate coupons, you just shouldn’t do it.
There are several more suggestions on the Coupon Information page. They even have an Etiquette section now.
