      Check your email… I just got a survey offer from CVS and got $15 ECB for completing it!

    • I use one of the Hallmark coupons a couple weeks ago without any problems. I printed another one and tried to use it the other day at the same Hallmark and was told that they were fraudulant. You are only supposed to be able to get them if you are on their frequent buyer plan and then they will be emailed to you every time you spend a certain amount. They gave me alot of guilt, but finally took my coupon saying that they would take the loss. This was in Hermitage, TN.

      • Jennifer

        It was a bricks coupon, not a pdf. They all have unique identifiers. I don’t understand how that could be fraudulent. Saying they would “take the loss”, is bad customer service. Sorry for your experience. Most of the time, I have a pleasant experience there.

      • Jenny

        I’m sorry that they gave you a hard time. I just went to two different Hallmarks this morning in my area and they took it without any questions (I only spent 50 cents after it too so they weren’t making money on me).

        • Colleen

          I used my printable one today with no problem on two rolls of wrapping paper. i’m going back with one from a magazine on Wed to get some chocolate- unless we’re out of paper, then I’ll get that again:)

          • Traci

            I used mine yesterday. She looked at it for a moment, scanned it then finished my purchase. It was very helpful!

      • Lindsey

        Thanks so much for your post, Lisa. I was going to use one of these, also at store in Hermitage, but now that I know they gave you a difficult time with it, I won’t bother trying to get over there before the 24th.

          I have had several of these coupons (Hallmark) throughout the Holiday season as I subscribe to lots of magazines – and they have placed a lot in mags this year. The magazine coupon could obvoiusly not be questioned as being fraudualant – however I went to a small local Hallmark in Lexington SC and used one – as soon as I handed it to the owner her cheery attitude abrublty changed and she read the coupon backward and forward and flipped it over and back over again (possibly to find a loophole so she wouldn’t have to honer it). – then at long last she honered it. I didn’t even get a thanks – have a nice day. It was almost like she was iritated that I had the nerve to use the coupon and that I wasn’t paying full price. (which I never will be again, Thanks Jenny). At any rate I used the coupons at 2 other stores and they were gladly and warmly accepted.

          • Same store would only let me use it for Hallmark branded items. I tried to buy a cute little plaque and it was made by Russ and they wouldn’t let me use the coupon. Didn’t see any of THAT wording on the coupon. HMPH!

      sears online code sears5off50 gets you five off fifty dollar purchase

      We cannot print the $5 off of $10 Ulta coupon. Whenever I click on the link it states that I cannot print anymore coupons. I never printed the Ulta coupon. Any advice….

      • I just had the same thing happen.

      Hallmark in Huntsville, AL in Piedmont Point Shopping center took my Hallmark coupon from a magazine. I bought the wrapping paper that was $4.99 a roll and second roll was only .99. Subtract the $5.00, and I got two rolls of Hallmark wrapping paper for $1.41. The cashier said “Wow, smart shopping!” I rarely shop at Hallmark, but I saw lots of stuff I really liked while browsing for a good deal to spend the coupon on. A week later, I entered with an internet coupon, hoping to repeat the deal. I was told my coupon was fraudulent if gotten off of a blog and not emailed directly to me. Since the coupon did not bear my email address, they would not accept it. Hope this helps!

        By the way, I left without making a purchase after the cashier told me I was trying to pass a “counterfeit” coupon. She was rude. Another cashier explained it more nicely . . .

    • Samantha

      The B&B works coupon has expired, but an employee checked with the manager and she said that she had no problem accepting it. Now I have an extra gift for my future sister in law!
