    Do you believe any of this - the supermarkets are trying to squeeze even more money out of us, thus increasing their already obscene profits, by not honouring the coupons that are legit!

    They are already reducing sizes and filling amounts. They are so sneaky, vast profiteering from us because we have to eat.

    Don't get me started on the miserable people they employ to make the experience even more foul.

    The store should have taken the coupon if they didn't want the customer to reuse it. I bet 99% of you would do the same.

    No wonder people want to have a feeling of being one up on them.

    Just tried to use a legit coupon for a free jar or marmite, emailed to me by marmite, and was refused in Sainsburys. Told, bluntly, "we don't accept printed coupons, 'cause theres so many scams", When I asked how then I was supposed to get a copy from my computer screen then, without printing it was told, "err we don't accept printed coupouns, contact marmite....."

    How stupid and rude can they get?

    How are you supposed to know at what point its pushing the boundaries and at what point its breaking the law? Take the recent Honey Shreddies offer, I've used the coupon twice buying two packs of honey shreddies, There are several people who post of buying 30-40 packs, does that mean we've broken the law? Should I hand myself into the nearest police station?
    The Shreddies coupon did not say 1 per person, etc. AFAIK
  • Why are we worrying about these voucher "fraudsters" if you can call it that.

    Why aren't these supermarkets in the dock everytime they have a price on an item and charge more.
    That's fraud .... real fraud...
    And you know when they tear off the old price and reprice higher.... they all do that on a regular basis... that's fraud ... real fraud...

    Why aren't the CEO of these companies being arrested and questioned. Also the process of issuing vouchers to pull in punters is a questionable practise too.

    While we're at it what about the likes of Dr Fox and Mr Cameron and Mr Clegg.
    Their fraudulent activities all swept under the carpet.... OK if you are a multi-millionaire eh!

    They like to come after the small guy..
  • Well news is that Dr Fox's 'friend' is being investigated for fraud... however my guess this won't be pursued nearly as strongly as this alleged voucher villian.

    This despite the fact that their various expense claims dwarf all voucher villians and benefits fiddlers thoughout the country.

    All I've got to say that is it any wonder that everyone is following the bankers and politicians examples?
  • There is always someone out to ruin couponing for everyone.
    I have only been using coupons/vouchers for the past few weeks, and ive already saved £20-30 in shopping bills.
    not sure why some people need to go so crazy and try to get their whole shop for free!! silly silly people...

    Goals: Save £500 for emergencies, Save £200 of Amazon vouchers for Xmas, fix my holey clothes!

    This is horrendous, this should surly warrant the bringing back of hanging as a minimum?!?

    To be honest she must have been extremely stupid to get caught over free/cheap persil, domestos, flora & tea!
