Not good coupons

I had some coupons sent to me and DH looked at them. One looks like a normal IP (black and white with the water mark) mine print in color. The other one is lighter printed and nothing behind the value like the first one. DH says it's probably a copy, so don't use it.
He pulled one of my color IP's out and showed me that it too had a watermark. I'm not going to use it, so should I shred it ?

I don't want to presume the sender copied them,but I don't know. Maybe they were given the coupons and they didn't know they were copied ?

Seems like the simplest, least-likely-to-get-anyone-in-trouble solution would be to go ahead and dispose of it.

to be on the safe side when dealing with IPs you're not sure of,

this principle works best ~ when in doubt, dont!

Are any of the numbers the same on the ones that looked copied? Is there a way you could mention it to the person without accusing?

I asked my Dad about it since he's a GM at Food Lion. He said it may not be copied, but like everyone else said better to shred it.

If you're not comfortable, don't use it; but also know that it could be legit.

Not every coupon has a watermark. A few rare ones don't even have tracking numbers.
If a coupon is directly from the vendor's site, they often don't have those features. If it came from one of the big coupon sites (ie coupon.com) then it must have those features.
Look to see if there is a URL anywhere on the coupon.

As for color or B&W, I set my print options to print my Q's in B&W. I use less $ for ink that way. I don't know of any stores requiring Q's to be in color.

Also if the coupon is from SmartSource it should have a unique pin in the top right hand corner. If you two of the same coupon you could verify it this way!

Some of mine come out like this. It depends on what computer I print on. The watermarks almost never print on a couple of the computers and it does on the others. But if you think they might be copied, I wouldn't use them.

My Walmart just told me yesterday that they are no longer taking ips in b&w because of people making copies. Luckily mine are all in color. Idk if it's just my Walmart or everyone but thats what my Walmart told me.

The corporate policy says otherwise. I would show them. I read these things about Walmart not accepting IPs because they're not in color or the barcodes don't go through (scans but says item not found). Do they not realize that copies can be made in color and barcodes can be made to work on ANY item?

Lol I felt like telling her that too about copies being made in color but then I was afraid she wouldn't take mine if I did.
