Here’s a letter from a reader I got back in July, I thought I’d re-post this since I’ve had several new readers asking me about photocopying coupons:

I am a loyal follower of your blog since I started couponing in May of 2011. Recently I have run into a “gooey situation” and was hoping you could give me your expert opinion regarding my account with SS.com.  I think my “cookies have crumbled” because I tried to print some Q’s from there a couple days ago and was denied. I recieved a screen saying something like “Application Security Warning Access Denied” and it gave me a reference number and told me to contact them via e-mail to resolve this issue. In their troubleshooting area there was a topic that said my account may have been temporarily disabled due to fraudulent “copied coupons” which nearly made me choke up “chocolate chips”.  I sent them repeated emails and still havnt recieved a reply. I did a little investigating of my own because I was sharing coupons with some friends who have denied copying any of them and I have had the occasional scuffle with “grouchy mean” managers at a couple stores in which I wrote their Supervisors and Corporate Offices complaints because they had my patients wearing “wafer” thin and was worried they may have set me up somehow. I started to go through my sales reciepts to see if any SS.com Q’s were used during any transactions that had to do with these “cookie cutter” individuals but didn’t find anything. I then decided to follow the “crumb trail” of Q’s that I have used from SS inserts and I found one for …”!!WhoNu Cookies!!”… that was labled as prohibited in NV my homestate {:o([. I felt like “tossing my cookies” because I didnt read the fine print and neither did the store associates that accepted them with doublers making for some great cookie deals. WHONU???? Being kinda new at this I never expected to recieve coupons that were restricted in Nevada in my Nevada mailbox! I used alot of these at Albertsons during the Double Coupon Event Last Week at least 8 or 9 and in one particular transaction I used a BOGO and 1/1 together which made them $.25 cents ea for two pkgs. I think these may have been the culprits which “soured the milk” and left me with “chocolaty evidence all over my teeth”…. but i’m still not sure so I was wondering….Have you come across any similar situations like this within the “Cuckoo Community”? Any idea of what I can expect or what I should do after getting busted with my hand in the “cookie jar”? I would hate to have legal troubles over “couponing for cookies” considering I try so hard to practice couponing Legally and Legitimatly. I was just so “charmed by cheap cookie deals” and now I feel “sandwhiched” by fear! It’s times like these that I (almost) wish I was “diabetic”… so any advice you could offer a poor poor innocent “cookie crook” would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You so much for all your hard work and for educating us “cookiecuck-I-I-mean “CouponCuckoo’s” 🙂

SweeetTeeef.

Deidre’s Take: Here at Cuckoo for Coupon Deals we never photocopy coupons! If you are in a coupon train or any other way of exchanging coupons, never exchange internet printables!  You never know if that other person is going to photocopy them, and since they were printed from your IP address YOU could be in huge trouble.  Not only might you not be able to print coupons anymore, the CIC may choose to prosecute you!

Ask CFCD Readers: Any advice for Sweet Teeef?

Who wants to skip cooking? My hand is in the air around 4:00pm every day even though I know I have to. Well most of these coupons are for the “healthy” items on McDonald’s menu so I think you will be okay stopping by and not having to make dinner one night!

Have you enjoyed seeing all the ways to follow our sites today? Well there is one more we wanted to tell you about that we think is pretty awesome! It’s called following via RSS, or other people call it following in readers.

Basically, you see the lists of titles of all posts by your favorite blogs in one spot. You can click on a title to view the full post right in your reader. You don’t have to head over to the blog – for people with slow internet this is going to save you tons of time!

Did you see my sweet Walgreen’s Scenarios for under $5 list? It’s a great new weekly feature.  I’d love to have Rite Aid Scenarios for under $5, and CVS Scenarios for under $5 as well.  I already am working around 40 hours a week on my blog, and don’t know if I can take on another task. So I was wondering if any of you would want to help?

Requirements:

  • You must be a regular couponer who knows how to create scenerios and actually shops at those stores
  • You must follow all store coupon rules in the scenarios
  • You must be willing to do this once per week, excluding Holidays of course.
  • You must be willing to get these done on Saturdays.
  • You must use the Cuckoo for Coupon Deals Coupon Database format to list the coupons in the scenario.

I think this will take you about 1 -2 hours per week, per store.  I could have one person per store, or one person do both if they wanted.

You’d be paid weekly via paypal.  Interested? Just email deidre@cuckooforcoupondeals.com  🙂

The winners of the BlogHer voting contest were just announced on RetailMeNot – and I was one of them!  This could not have been possible without your votes.  Thank you so much! I am excited to learn how to make my blog better.

I would love to go to BlogHer and learn more about how to make my blog better. Could you go to this BlogHer entry form page and look for my tip (as shown below) and click on it then click on Done. That’s all you have to do to vote for my tip, the top 6 votes get to go to BlogHer!

Vote for my tip:

Sales are seasonal! During the summertime, you can expect the following items to be at their lowest price throughout the year: Air conditioners, craft supplies, sodas, hotdogs, hamburger meat (buy in bulk and freeze it), condiments, fresh fish, vegetables, linens, and breakfast foods (cold cereal-juice-waffles-etc) to name a few. By knowing which time of the year items go on sale in stores and online, you can time your purchases and reap serious savings. — Cuckoo for Coupon Deals

This ends Sunday, June 26th at midnight. I am so thankful for your help! If I win I will announce it on my site and let you know if I learn anything exciting at Blog Her.
