Internet Printable Roundup

$1.50/1 DiGiorno Flatbread Melts IE or FF

$.75/1 Solo Paper Products

$1/1 Baked Frito Lays (I may have to run double this one at Albies today!)

$1/1 Kraft Naturals Cheese IE or FF (another great doubler!)

$2/2 Johnson's IE or FF

$2/1 Aveeno
The $5/1 Aveeno coupon floating around the blogosphere is FRAUDULENT to use in the United States!

$1.50/2 Countytime Lemonade

$1/1 Skinny Cow Truffle Bars

$2/1 Banana Boat

$2/1 Hawaiian Tropics IE or FF

$3/1 Coppertone

Just a side note- we check the sources of all the internet printables we post on KCL. While we can't assure that every link we share is the real deal, here is what we look for:
1. Coupons from a Trusted Site, for example, we like to see them direct from the manufacturer site
2. Print Limit- often coupons in a pdf file are fraudulent
3. Also, something that often fools newbies are companies that are found in the United States and in other countries. If you find a coupon on a manufacturer's website- and it has a .ca (Canada) or .uk (United Kingdom) instead of .com this is another countries website and retailers in the U.S. WILL NOT get reimbursed if they are used here. There is an High Value Aveeno coupon floating around the coupon blog world right now- and it's from Canada- PLEASE do not use this coupon!

Using fraudulent internet printable coupons hurts everyone- the manufacturer, the retailer (because they won't get reimbursed from the manufacturer) and consumers (because manufacturers and retailers could become more conservative with their policies).
On the same note- NEVER make photocopies of internet printables.

Thanks for posting this information! I JUST printed that aveeno coupon this morning. I read the fine print and it says only available in Canada. That one went in the trash. Another thing I see posted on many blogs that irritates me is when people post a "rebate" when it is really a satisfaction guarantee. Those are only meant for if you are not satisfied with the product- not as a freebie.

I'm glad the info helped. This ONE Aveeno coupon could really have a bad impact on stores accepting internet printables, because such a high value ($5) and no print limit, can you imagine how much money stores could be losing from just that one coupon?
We all accidentally print invalid coupons, especially when we're newbies or in a hurry. We'll just keep doing our best to avoid it and if we misstep, we'll do our best to quickly correct it!
