Unfortunately, there are some spam coupon websites out there that offer bad coupons. At Grocery Coupon Network, we only offer coupons that are legit and will work when you use them at the register.
Fraudulent coupons are out there, but by taking a few precautions, you can avoid being a victim.
The easiest way to protect yourself is by only printing coupons from a trusted source like GroceryCouponNetwork.com, from manufacturer websites, or through company Facebook pages.
All of the coupons found on Grocery Coupon Network have been validated and will work for you at checkout.
If you have questions about any other coupons, however, the following tips can help you feel confident and safe.
Beware of coupons that appear to come from email mailing lists. There are spammers out there that get your email and try to send you fake coupons.
If you get an unsolicited coupon email, unsubscribe from that list and only trust email offers from trustworthy sites like Grocery Coupon Network.
Be skeptical of offers for free items, or those so heavily discounted that you are surprised they exist.
Does it seem too good to be true? There is probably a good reason for that feeling.
The more experience you get with finding and using coupons, the more obvious the fraudulent offers will be.
Look out for printable coupons that have the appearance of being copies of actual physical coupons. Most trusted printable coupons will have a link from a webpage.
Legitimate coupon sources use software to count or limit the total number of coupons printed.
If you do find a suspicious coupon, the website www.couponsinc.com can verify the code for you. On the right hand side of the coupon you will find the verify code.
By entering it into the provided space on the website, you can get a proof of validation, as well as the terms and conditions of the offer. Matching all of this information with your actual coupon will verify the coupon in question.
