Counterfeit Printable Coupons Do Exist

There are a lot of great printable coupons out there to make CVS deals sweeter, but there are fraudulent ones, too.  The old adage, if it is too good to be true it probably is, certainly applies.  If you find a fantastic printable not on a manufacturer's website or from a reputable service like Coupons.com, Bricks or Redplum you may want to do a little research to be sure it is real.  Most often a coupon in PDF form is not real, though there are some
manufacturer websites that offer them this way, most often they are a copy of a coupon or a fake.

Most printable coupons have an unique code number on them and the software allows each computer to print only two--each with their own code.  In PDF form many can be printed, though some manufacturer websites do put a code on them, too, so printing more than one in these cases actually is duplicating the same coupon.  Here is a link to some current counterfeits.  If you are in doubt you can also call the manufacturer and ask.  There are some high value Proctor & Gamble coupons currently circulating and P&G has reported they do not offer printable coupons.

It is a shame that no matter what people try and cheat.
