That will lead to crackdowns and stores won't take coupons printed from your computer
I do that too. I got a coupon in the mail from my local grocery store for twenty dollars off a hundred dollar purchase but I never spend that much at one time. So the next time I was there I gave the coupon to a sweet-looking older lady with a very full cart. She was just so thrilled, it made my day.Usually I will leave those coupons in the store right next to or on top of the product so someone else could use it
I once clipped a coupon from the Rite-Aid drugstore ad circular offering a free $10 RA gift card with the purchase of a $25 iTunes gift card. My nephew's birthday was coming up, so I decided to take advantage of it and get him the iTunes GC. However, when I got in line, the cashier was a new employee who didn't know what to do with the coupon. She got another employee AND the manager to help her. The manager looked at me suspiciously and asked me where I got the coupon. I told him I clipped it from the RiteAid ad. The coupon was scanned, I got my Rite-Aid gift card, but that idiot made me feel like a criminal just for using a coupon. Sheesh.
I'm so glad my supermarket has self-checkout lanes so I can scan my own coupons in peace. It's very rare that one doesn't go through, but interestingly one of the ones that didn't scan (and flagged a manager to my lane) was a coupon I got in the mail from Kashi. It was a thank-you coupon for belonging to their customer survey program a while back, and I have to admit even I thought it looked suspicious, like it was just run off a photocopier or something. When I contacted Kashi to tell them nobody would accept their coupon they apologized profusely and sent me enough regular cardboard coupons in the mail to keep me in Kashi cereal for many months.
