Do You Know How To Show Cashiers That Your Print Coupon Is Valid???

First of all please remember that any store has the right to refuse any coupon for any reason they wish and they do not have to give you the reason.

However, if it is a question of whether or not your print coupons are valid or not, do you know how and what to show to the cashier to prove that they are valid and not illegal photocopies???

Keep reading as we take you thru the 3 most common types of print coupons and the security features and numbers that make each print unique‼️‼️

1) Smartsource Coupons

1)Valid Expiry Date(Circled in yellow)

2)Pin Number(Circled in Red) This number will be different on each Smartsource coupon showing that the coupon is unique and not photocopied.

3)Offer ID(Circled in Grey) This number will be the same on each print coupon of the same type.

4)The Barcode(Circled in Blue) This number will be the same on each of the print coupons of the same type.

3)PDF Print Coupons

Although I personally have never had an issue using multiples of these coupons at any of the stores in my area, I know that others have had varying degrees of success.

A pdf is essentially a printed version of a tearpad coupon.

They do not have offer ID numbers nor do they have unique PIN numbers. Each one will have the same barcode. However, you can use multiples of these coupons in the same transaction as long as it says one per purchase, has an expiry date that has not passed and as long as the stores allows you to. It’s at their discretion. If it says one per transaction or one per customer then you may only use 1 coupon in a transaction just like any other coupon.

Hopefully you find this helpful. If you have any other questions please do not hesitate to ask‼️‼️
