TLC and Coupon Fraud?? Many Questions Have Come to Light
I know everyone else is talking about this, but I want to share as well. I know many of you are new couponers, and may take what you see on TV as acceptable. But, many inconsistencies have been noted during one of the shoppers, Jaime Kirlew, on Wednesday nights airing of Extreme Couponing. The direct link is getting slammed right now, but you can try here:
Just so you all know, there are right ways and wrong ways to use coupons. I Prefer the right way! I have a hard enough time with some cashiers and my legit coupons! I don't want to have to be know as "that" coupon lady. I prefer to keep it legit and friendly. Cashiers are much nicer to you if are nice to them! I know many of the cashiers and managers by name, and I prefer a good relationship with them!
I will be talking more about proper coupon usage in my Monday Couponing 101 series. I know we have all had an expired coupon slip in our pile and misread a coupon or two, but to deliberately commit coupon fraud, while on National TV- I just can't believe it.
What are your thoughts on this incident?? Fraud? Acceptable for TV to promote? Should consequences be forthcoming??
