Hologram???

I tried to use two internet printed coupons from coupons.com at walmart today, and the cashier said they can't take them because theres supposed to be a hologram in the middle, and there isnt. I assume that means shes accusing me of photocopying them, which I didnt do. I may be new to this whole thing, but I know that is definately not allowed. I've used many other Internet coupons at WM before....not sure why these werent accepted. Annoying.

I think smart source coupons have the hologram not the ones for coupons.com.

What? Home printers can't print holograms... at least not ANY printer I've ever seen There's supposed to be some sort of printing in the corner that will show up if it's copied, but from what I've read it doesn't really work b/c people's printers vary so much and don't print that kind of complexity.

Were they frees or high value or something, or just regular old printables?

I think what she's talking about it a coupon sent directly from the mfr. MOST of those that I"ve seen have holograms on them somewhere...but you can't print those from home. Call corporate and let them know what she said so that she can be educated. No need to be rude, just let them know.

Some companies do that when they mail you coupons - especially for free, high-value coupons. But not on a printer. I think the cashier must have been a little confused. She may have used the wrong word or she may have got 2 types of coupons confused. I would call the store before you go again to see if you can clarify.

go to walmart.com and send an email, i did last week and they gm called me and called me until i answered the phone and apologized and swore that she was having a re-training session and i may have gotten a cashier fired, but it was for bad conduct. Note to cashiers at WM: No one cares about the time you found your husband in the bed with a prostitute, so lets not discuss it during my check out

Everyone that I know who prints coupons at home is printing them with holograms.

You should be able to print each one in about 30-60 minutes in your home darkroom, just make sure to have a sturdy table, preferably based in sand to absorb vibrations. There are easy to follow directions online about how to point your diode laser at the image, how to handle and expose the holographic film plate, and mixing the chemicals for processing each one.

If you look in the tech forum here you should be able to get some help with proper printing techniques. Or ask the walmart cashier for help, sounds like she's an expert.

There's a watermark on some of the coupons ( new printer ) but next time, bring some 3D glasses from a movie you've seen and put them on and say "I see it right there" and point to some weird spot on the paper, and see what happens. Then look at her and go "wow! your nails look like they're coming right at me!"


I know, I'm being silly

LOL at Hologram!!

I think she means that coupon.com Q's will often have a faint/ghost image of the brand's logo behind the part that says "Save X amount." If the Q is photocopied it may not show up in the copy (not really sure on this, never tried it).

If you have your printing sent to "draft," and depending on the printer, can make that faint image even fainter and harder to see. Or perhaps her eyesight wasn't that good, because they are hard to see sometimes.

TraciBarnes: Talk about TMI! Who talks about that sort of stuff in public?? Maybe I'm just a prude, but I can't imagine your work station to be an appropriate time and place to discuss that. And here I thought the grossest thing I came across was a cashier wetting her fingers with her tongue to get the bags to open.
