Recently you may have seen a .pdf file containing (6) Free Doritos Coupons, you may have even tried to use them. I have received a large amount of e-mails asking whether these coupons were legitimate or not and I wanted to answer that here: these coupons are 100% fraudulent. Frito Lay has come out and publicly stated that they are no good.
A good rule of thumb to keep you from accidentally using fraudulent coupons is to look for the source of the coupon. If they are are not linked to any official site (in this case either the Frito Lay site or any official coupon site such as redplum or smartsource), you should not use them. In other words, find them in their original source and make sure it is a credible one. Another way to think about the coupons is this: Frito-Lay could not possibly afford to give every customer 6 free bags of Doritos; it would probably bankrupt them! Sorry if you really wanted to use these but please don’t use these coupons and tell your friends not to use them either!
Also in general any FREE coupon passed around via email should scream “not real”. Get more information about spotting coupon fraud.
Thanks for helping me to make Southern Savers a place where ethical couponers save money together! (and thank you to everyone who e-mailed asking about these coupons before running out to use them!)
