Thats really strange, I think that lady was lying to you. If I can get a shopping mall to accept a printable coupon from online then Wal-Mart should take them. Ive used them a couple of times at Bath and Body works and at the Grocery store as well. Did it not scan or something when she tried to give you credit for the coupon? Or did you explain they were printed off the net? If they are a coupon from the manufacturer, I dont see why they wont be accepted everywhere.

She ask me if they are from interner?And I said yes.Then she tell me they don't accept them becuase they think somebody can copy them.I was really mad, since it was first time I wanted to save some money with coupons.Grrrr.... So I bought today a newspaper.Hope that will work.

Well Im sorry that happened to you hon. I dont think that is correct though. I would listen to the person who was telling you about calling the company and complaining and telling them what store refused them and why. A manufacturers coupon should be accepted where ever. So what if they can be copied, the store gets a return for all the coupons they honored, its not like they are missing out on anything. Yes the ones from the newspaper will surely be honored. Bay xx

I gave up on trying to find a place to use them. All the stores here claim that they won't accept them because "there is no way to tell if they are fake copies". Probably all you can do is call around to all the local stores and ask whether they do or not.

I've use printable coupons myself. I shop at Walmart and use them I also shop @ Food Lion and use them. I did run across a cashier who told me that I couldn't use them, and yes it was a problem because I told her yes I can because I use them every week I come to do my food shopping(mind you this was at Food Lion) so during that little issue I had to bust her bubble because I also print coupons from their site also, so when she show that and I explained that to her she had nothing to say but honor my coupons. But you'll get a couple od cashier saying that they cant or don't use them but I still give it to them my thing if it scan that mean it's usable. Ask them to scan the printable coupon if the register take it and it take off then its usable now if it its not scanbale then they won't honor them. Trust me I'm the COUPON/CLEARANCE/FREE/ANYTHING THAT IS GOING TO SAVE ME MONEY QUEEN. LOL

Yes, it is true that many of the coupons from the newspaper are not accepted in the kind of stores where we shop where the prices are lower already without the coupons than the other store price would be with them. However, we often do use coupons for cash off on local fast food restaurants. My favorite is the $2 USD off on Quiznos large subs. It is like getting their combo upgrade for free--a drink and a salad!

Here we also sometimes get some printable coupons when we buy something, but we have to go some designated shops for the things that we can get using the coupons. They are not usable in any shops, but designated ones.

Walmart is really hard on people using coupns because they feel their prices are already low,but i have used my online coupons at Farmer Jack,Kroger and Meijer with no problem,but yea Walmart gives everyone a hard time I think.
