Quaker internet printable fraud

I was at the Gage store again and notice tons of signs all over the breakfast aisle and the cash registers that specifically state that Albertsons has been informed of Quaker internet printable that are fraudulent and as such they are not accepting the printable coupons specifically for the Quaker sale. The url on the page came from their parent company so it's most likely a nationwide problem (not just at Albertsons but would most like affect their Save-A-Lot chain as well).

When I asked the girl at the customer service desk she said she had no idea if it was for all internet printables or just the Quaker ones. I really need to catch her name since this is the same girl that told me, back in December, that I had to buy a newspaper if I wanted a Sunday flier because Albertsons would no longer have them for customers.

I've e-mail Karrie from Fistful of Coupons and Lori at NW Coupon Mom as well as the Gage store manager. I'll have more information when I can get it.

Update @ 6:49 PM Pacific: I called the Leslie store to get more info while I'm waiting for a reply from the Gage manager. From what I was told the fraudulent coupon is for $1/1 any Quaker product. This in essence would make the product free. The word actually came down from their Quaker representative to SuperValu that the internet printables out for Quaker products are fraudulents hence ALL Albertsons stores will not be taking them.

Where to get coupons

BEST PLACE: The Sunday newspaper!

In stores:

Blinkies – Found on various store aisles these little machines spit out coupons as you pull them out. Most blinkies have little lights that blink hence the name.

Catalinas – Receipt-like coupons printed at the register. Not all stores have Catalinas (such as WinCo). These are typically NOT printed on the back of the register receipt.

Hang/Wine Tags – Found around the neck of a bottle with a little piece of string or rubber band.

Peelies – Coupons found on certain products that peel away from the product.

Tearpads – Coupons on a tear away pad. Typically found in a display and not directly on the product.

Other ways:

Home mailers - sign up for products online or even contact a company to either complain or complement their products. Click here for a blog with over 200 links to companies that will mail you coupons!

Internet coupons - There are many places online that you can print coupons from. See links below for printable online coupons.

Magazines – Pretty much all magazines will have coupons in it. Better Homes & Gardens, Sunset, Parenting, Working Mother are a few. The BEST magazine with coupons is All You magazine.
