    My friend in another state recently had some of her coupons refused because ( as she was told )they were not "valid" for her area at that time . The store said she must have used a zip code that was not near her to find & print the coupons and the store could not accept them ( it was a Publix ).
    Did anyone see the coupon story on another local TV station recently ?? I saw it on the website ealier this week .

    Hey everyone, we've had a couple fans let us know they've had some issues with cashiers scanning the ice cream coupon at their local store. We've updated the coupon, so please use the updated link below to print out your ice cream coupon. Sorry for any inconvenience.
    Up above is copied directly from yesterday email from Turkey Hill. Maybe some of errors are from the actual company offering the coupon not us using the coupon. I had never had a Turkey Hill coupon work right at Kroger whether printed or newspaper.

    juli28428, spalding and others - this is definitely not a good sign that more and more printable coupons are not scanning at the registers. Thanks to everyone for posting your recent scanning experiences.

    spaldingcoupon ... I had the same issue at HT and Lowe's a few weeks ago. Also some of my coupons wouldn't scan at FL but they pushed them through. I was really upset as I am a totally by the book couponer. I contacted both HT and Lowe's by email and their response was my printer was apparently low on ink, no other reason. Lowe's tried to help resolve the problem by having their marketing dept contact me, HT did not.

    Thanks for heads-up about the free Royal Canin cat food, Faye! (You know I can use that one, LOL.)

    Faye - Did you post the Black Friday deals at Walgreens. If so could you let me know what day it was posted on?

    csw, a few days ago you talked about Food Lion giving you a hard time about your coupons. Today I went to a Food Lion and none of the printable coupons would scan. They called the manager over and he indicated that the bar codes for the coupons were not in their system and he would not override them. So I had them void the transactions. So you're not the only one. It might be a long time before I go back to Food Lion. There was nothing wrong with those coupons. Just wanted to let you know you're not the only one.
