Gang cut coupons

This issue was pointed out on another thread in this forum. I hadn't heard of the deal being made out of this until I read that. I do gang cut mine but I'm only doing about 4-6 coupons total (that's how many papers I buy a week).

I think I will trim the edges of mine after I cut them just to avoid any issues at the store. It's a shame it's come to this, though :-(.

If you have heard of this issue, did it change the way you cut your coupons?

I've never had a problem either. The first time I heard this term was after reading the free Dr. Pepper Q. It states something to the effect 'not valid if gangcut'. I had sixty or so. I cut them in like six batches of ten, then alternated them so edges didn't match. I've used 10 or more at once without a hitch.

It's not you that will have a problem with it, it's the store. Some of these coupon clearinghouses have sophisticated computers that analyze batches of coupons that appear to be stacked and cut. They will then refuse reimbursement to the store.

I tried to post a link to an incredibly informative article on the matter (it was actually pretty fascinating to read) and they show examples of stores that have been denied reimbursement and what the scan looked like that was sent. Google gang cutting and Jill and you'll find it.

I have heard this before, and I do not gang cut my coupons. If I have 20 inserts and I want a coupon, I will cut them all out separately. It is getting hard enough to use a coupon. I just don't want to give them one more thing to complain about.

Interesting article. Haven't run into this before, but could certainly understand a retailers POV.

Wow, the first time I had heard of this was with the Dr Pepper 10 coupons. So I'm wondering if we should dump the coupons on the floor and step on them a few times so they don't look new? ;-) Just kidding! But seriously it makes you wonder what the future of couponing will look like.

Well I am limited on time and also get 10 papers many weeks and cut with a paper cutter, however my stores are safe because I am HORRIBLE at it LOL! I am doing good if all the expiration dates are still on the back couple.

I first read about gang cuts here, a while ago. (a year? I forget).

I don't use massive amounts of coupons, the most I've ever had I think was 8 copies of an insert, but since reading that I stopped stacking my papers and just cut them individually. If it's worth my time to make a cashier scan the coupon, it's worth the extra 5 seconds or so to cut it out. My logic is that if it's not going to be a deal that's worth those extra seconds, I'm not going to bother making a trip for it.

I always cut mine together, but I typically only have 5 or 6. Plus the store that I typically go to will only allow 3 to be doubled, so I typically only use 3.
