Thanks to all who responded to this post. I usually won't post things from the news unless it really affected me very strongly. Most of your responses is right to the point but thinking about it usually, if a person gets way w/stealing, they are more likely to risk doing it again. It's I think like an addiction. If you got away w/stealing neighbors paper for a long time it's a hard habit to break. These also that rush a person gets after getting away with steal. I feel so glad there are people on this site that make the moral code priority.  :notworthy: :thumbsup: :peace: :wave:

Hey, it's 12:50am....MARRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY HOLIDAYS!!!!!!!!

It is really sad to hear that people do that.  How greedy can you get? I am betting half the food goes to waste.  If you steal coupons then you should be charged with stealing.

I agree its not fair to steal from others. I have heard of people stealing newspapers just to get the coupons out. It's just plain wrong to the person who paid their money for it.

I am all for saving money, but taking other people's coupons is just wrong.

lol, but there really is. I'm not so sure if the addiction is to coupons or getting the free stuff. My sister is the one who taught me how to get things virtually free at CVS, but I'm not as diligent as her. She reads me the riot act if she catches me shopping without coupons. I was visiting her a couple of months ago and had a toothache. I went to CVS with her, so I could get Orajel. She saw me with it and asked me what I thought I was doing. She said, wait I'll work out a deal so you can get it free. I said, my gums won't wait. But she figured it out in 15 mins and I got it for less than 0.50!

Wow! I think you need to take me shopping and give me some pointers.  :thumbsup:

:)  You would do a whole lot better with my sister lol, she's coupon mary on youtube.   I did buy about $150 worth of items last yr for the Christmas season and only paid $4.50! Everyone in the check out line looked at me as if I was a goddess, lol, I almost expected a round of applause, lol.  This year, I kept going back to both CVS stores in my town getting the Pot of Gold boxes of candy. The coupon machine in CVS kept spitting out $3 coupons off 2 boxes, and I had a bunch of $1 off coupons per box. So I was getting 2 boxes for $5 off. You're allowed to use a manufactured coupon along with a CVS coupon. That's how I was getting 2 boxes for $2.98. Needless to say, everyone I know got boxes of candy as one of their presents. I still have about 10 boxes on hand lol.

A couple of weeks ago they were offering Centrum Nutrium vitamins for 9.99 each. I missed it because they were sold out before I ever got a chance. Well during the holiday season CVS was giving out $10 gift card for buying $30 of select products, The vitamins were among them. So people would buy 3 of the bottles. Then the coupon machine was giving $5 off coupons, and there were manufactured coupons for $7 off, and there were some for $5 off. So depending on which coupon you used, you got $10-12 off the  9.99 vitamins. Buy 3, get a $10 gift card. So some people were just paying tax but some cashiers just zeroed out the customers balance.

I have a coupon blog and love saving money couponing.  What a lot of people don't know about Extreme Couponing is that they have been caught making deals with stores to allow the rules to be ignored for the shoppers featured in their episodes.  For example, Lowe's Foods had to release a statement admitting that their coupon policy would not have allowed the savings that were shown on an episode that was filmed at one of their stores.  They said that they did it because they wanted to appear coupon friendly but in hind sight realized it was misleading.

There is another woman who coupon bloggers have outed for coupon fraud.  The blogger community taped the show and then took screen shots of different scenes.  They proved that she purposely used coupons on items that they were not intended for by using a tactic of reading the UPC codes and knowing how to fool the registers.  This is a vulnerability that will be fixed with the new scanning technology used now with cell phones.

Coupon fraud is a felony and no laughing matter.   The show has drawn attention to the fact that couponing pays, but it has also gave honest couponers a bad reputation.  When the show features someone who purchases 90 bottles of pain reliever and uses 90 coupons, that is just not realistic, since most coupons now allow you to only use 4 of the same coupons per purchase.

I spend a lot of hours each week couponing, but most of it is blogging related to get information out.  Spending 10 hours in a store and hours at a register to get 100 of the same item is not realistic or something I want to do.

I think it's vile and vicious to destroy someone's good name for some coupons that everybody except the coupon people throw away. I think they make too much of it. If in fact they stole mail then they should be arrested that is a crime. :o :o :o

Tsk, tsk.  I didn't watch the Extreme Couponers show on TLC too often, but when I did I was absolutely disgusted the way they hoarded all of their purchases.  Absurd.  It's one thing to use coupons to save money, but when you're cheating the system and just trying to build up your stockpile for fun then that's just messed up.
