    Attached is a copy of Procter and Gambles recently revised terms of proper coupon redemption for your reference.

    In general our terms remain consistent with current practice; however, please note the following important clarifications and changes:

    1. Item #4: P&G does NOT authorize any coupons that can be printed from the internet on home computer equipment, also known as internet print at home coupons. Retailers should not accept P&G coupons that are printed from the internet, copied, or of poor quality, as these are likely counterfeits and P&G will not pay for these coupons.

    Please call our customer service department at 1-800-543-8443 if you have questions about P&G Coupon Terms.

    I'm not suprised either. My local Walmart gives me a hard time whenever I try to use an internet coupon.

    I don't understand this statement. Proctor and Gamble is not a store, it's a manufacturer. they put out coupons. some of them are IP. If they put out IP coups, and stores accept IP coups, what's the problem?

    Are you saying that they are putting out IP coups, but stores should not accept them?

    I would venture to guess that P&G is not going to be putting out internet coupons any more. Thus they are advising stores that should they accept any P&G will not honor them.
    Some days, it's not even worth chewing through the restraints.

    In order for a retailer to get paid for the coupons they accept they need to be sent in to a coupon clearinghouse or the retailer may do it themselves as i have done for several years. The companies go through and verify authenticity as far as date, amount of coupons sent in etc........... then they pay. If any of these coupons that are sent in are internet printed they will not pay on them,,,,,,,,pretty plain and simple to me. Sure a retailer can take tons of internet printed coupons, but Clearly stated P&G is not going to pay the retailer back. So the retailer is out the face value and handling of the coupons sent in.

    While i'm on the fence about this, mostly because I think pretty soon alot of companies may soon follow. And alot of people cannot afford newspapers to get coupons etc. And that is where most of the coupons come from.I do see where people are copying and probably selling and taking advantage off coupons offered online, I also feel in the end the legitimate users are the ones that are going to pay in the end.
