    Coupon FAQs
    (also see here for another source of info.)

    If anyone is having trouble printing valassis coupons, they ask you to install a coupon printer, this works. post

    Q: How many coupons can I print?
    A: Most couponnet-type coupons are only available to be printed once (or twice if you click no when asked if it printed successfully or the back button). Any PDF or JPG coupons can usually be printed as many times as you like (remember to save them to your computer, just in case the online version disappears!).

    Q: when i clicked on print, it came up with my printer settings so i thought i'd see if changing the amount of copies i wanted would work, and it did!this is not allowed so please don't.
    a good response by CW as to why not
    A:You must not print more than one coupon with the same pin number, if you do the store will not get their money back and you will damage the coupon acceptance policy in your store and possibly all supermarkets.Supermarkets only get paid once per pin number. printing multiple copies with the same pin number is the same as photocopying. just apply again using different details so that the coupon has a different pin number.

    Q: How can coupons be traced back to you
    A: Many coupons are linked to registry of your computer. It has nothing to do with IP address.
    If they realise that the coupon printing has been abused from a particular PC, there are chances of banning you from any further coupons in the future. And it is very very difficult to remove that ban.
    And this has happened to few, on here in the past. so be careful...!!!!!

    Q: Is there any way to get more couponnet-type coupons?
    A: Yes, but only if you have access to another computer(s). The coupon software knows how many times each individual computer has printed the coupon. Also, see here.

    Q: Does it matter if the coupon is printed in colour or black & white?
    A: Technically it should not matter, however some staff automatically equate black & white prints with photocopies - which are NOT permitted.

    Q: Do I need to use my real identity (email, etc) when registering for printable coupons?
    A: Where possible, the 1st post will indicate whether a genuine email address is required or not (eg when verification is required by clicking a link in a received email). However, in most cases it it ok to use a false email address, since most of the coupons print instantly.

    Q: Can I use coupons on the self-scan checkouts?
    A: No reason why not - but it's advisable to check with the self-scan supervisor to be sure.

    Q: What or who is a "Trout"?
    A: TROUT is the expression used by people on here for cashiers of a certain age, usually female, that are miserable for the sake of being miserable, unhappy in their work, jealous of people with mocs and do their level best to prevent anyone using coupons...try your very best to avoid them at the checkouts......(See here also.)

    Q: Where else can I get coupons from, apart from printables?
    A: Check newspapers & magazines. Also try looking for products with coupons on. Also, join the Tesco clubs - see here. You can always look at freebie forum link here sometime the promoter send the sample with coupon attached to it. example : Nivea, Clipper tea, any many more.
