I printed out some coupons and took them to the grocery store yesterday. She asked me if I got them on line so I told her yes. She said they dont take them. I asked her why and she said people copy them. I was mad. I did print out two but give me a break. The yogurt was supposed to be .38 and it turned out to be .48. The coupon I was using was for that.

That's why I don't print out coupons.

Unfortunatly coupon theft is huge so many stores do not honor internet coupons anymore.

It is definately annoying. My small local grocery store will not take them, but both Safeway and Save Mart still do.

Check the store policies (usually posted on their websites). A lot of walmarts will not accept internet coupons even though it states plainly on their website that they DO accept internet coupons.

If you are an avid coupon-clicker, print out a copy of the store's policy and take it with you...and if the manager STILL argues then tell them to call corporate (if applicable)

I've fought that fight many times at Wal-Mart.

Around here most of the Walmarts, Safeways and Raley's stores take internet coupons.

I don't bother with internet coupons for that reason.
