greensboro stores & FLIP coupons that won't scan

I heard today from a friend that FL would no longer take internet printables if they didn't scan. So last night I phoned 5 stores and they all told me that is correct. They will no longer take printables unless they scan because of coupon fraud. The stores assume that if they don't scan they are copied. One manager said the copied coupons always have a slight blurr to the bar code. So just giving you all a heads up. I also told them I have an old bubble jet print (just to see what she would say) and everything I print comes out blurry and she said then you can't use them.

My friend also told me Lowes Foods will not take internet printable STORE coupons. I did confirm this also. I was told this was always their policy but most cashiers didn't realize the difference.

FLIP troubles

URGGHHH, that makes me so mad! I always print my FLIP's from AFC & half will scan & the other half won't. My stepmom went to use her FLIP's the other day & the manager didn't want to take them because they didn't scan. She was also doing her regular grocery shopping, and everything had already been rung up. She told them that FL sent her those q's & if they didn't take them, than they could keep their groceries.

I love that New England attitude!

Needless to say, they took her q's. Maybe if we all complain enough they will rethink the q policy.

Just wanted to vent!

Even when I print them from FL they do not scan....I have even tried printing them out at work-where there is a heavy duty printer and they still do not print!

I believe the Food Dog will have a hard time forcing this issue becuase they email their customers IPs. Angiengary - I had IP troubles at the Randleman Rd store but the manager said they would accept them becuase they are from the corporate office.

I wrote to FL corporate and told them that when I print the Qs from their website they never scan. We'll see what they say.

Yeah I'm with Lisa. The ones I print from FL emails will scan but the ones from the generator are the ones that don't for some reason. That's a huge bummer!

foodlion coupons

That is stupid because even the ones from the email when i take them to foodlion does not scan but we have a self scanner so i can key them in there. But i will pitch a fit if they do not take them.

FL and Lowe's Foods are really tightening their belts on coupons. There is another thread in the Lowe's Foods subforum about them not accepting the IP store Q's. It is crazy! If they accept competitor store Q and accept IP's does it not make any sense to not accept store competitor IP's?

As with all things coupon related, this is going to be YMMV.

Angie -- I know which stores you called and I shopped 2 of them this morning. My FLIP coupon did not scan at either. Both cashiers typed in the barcode # without saying a word to me. There was no mention of NOT taking my coupons. In fact, when I apologized for having a 'crappy printer' at the 2nd FL, the cashier said, "Hey.. don't worry. We can just manually type the coupon in"

I know what the stores will say when you call. What they practice is going to be a whole different story. And, as I frequently say, "that story will depend on the store, the cashier, and the phase of the moon"

Just take a deeep breath and smile while you are checking out.
