“Is it okay to photocopy a coupon so I have more to use?”
Photocopying coupons is illegal and is punishable by fines and imprisonment. This includes ALL coupons: Internet printables, manufacturer coupons from a newspaper or magazine, and store coupons.
A Krazy Couponer’s currency IS coupons. Just as you would not use counterfeit money to pay for goods, so you would not use a fraudulent or copied coupon. Regardless of whether or not it states “Do Not Copy” on the coupon itself, it is against the law (just like a dollar bill doesn’t need to state “Do Not Copy”).
Internet printable coupons are usually limited to one or two prints per computer. For maximizing printables, check out Printing Multiple Coupons. The majority of printable coupons print with a unique bar code on each coupon, linking that coupon with your computer and location. If you use a photocopied coupon, the store does not get reimbursed and loses the money, just as if it was stolen from the store. Using coupons correctly helps ensure future coupon acceptance, so let’s always be honest!
