Buyer Beware: New Wording On Coupons!

Share This Post :

I was looking thru my cpns for tomorrow and noticed that Kraft had put new wording on their cpns.

If you’re a CQ follower, you know where we stand on the buying and selling of cpns so I won’t go into that.  I just thought you should be aware of how the manufacturer’s feel about it and how the new wording on the cpns says it all LOL!!

If you’ll read the top line under the expiration date you see the following: “Reproduction, alteration, transfer or sale of this cpn or it’s contents is prohibited and is a criminal offense.”

Here’s something else you might be interested in. It’s a quote from the CIC website. In case you’re not familiar with the CIC (Coupon Information Corporation), they are an organization that helps manufacturer’s build cases to prosecute the misuse of cpns.

“Coupon-sellers often include legal disclaimers stating that they are selling their time, a service, or even envelopes that just happen to contain cpns instead of the cpns themselves. Such statements are invalid and do not offer any legal protection. Rather, such statements suggest that the sellers know that their cpn sales are inappropriate and wrong.”
