Protect Yourself from Counterfeit Coupons

Consumers can protect themselves from counterfeit coupons by never paying money for coupons and by using only coupons obtained from authorized coupon distributors, such as The Nikolai Nuthouse.  If you do question a coupon please do check the CIC website to see if it is on their list before heading to the store!

Here are a few tips on how to protect yourself.

  • Never pay for coupons. Counterfeit coupons are often for sale on eBay or other websites.  Coupons are free!
  • Never use "free product" coupons from the Internet unless from a coupon blog you trust because they are frequently fakes. Manufacturers almost always require consumers to buy something to get an item free.
  • Never use a coupon that you can see the entirety of on your computer screen unless it is from a coupon blog you trust. Legitimate coupons are partially obscured on the screen to prevent multiple copies form being made.
