Unethical couponing sucks.

Taking a moment on ethics.

Listen, people. I've seen a lot of online couponers talking about "cashier profiling" and things of this nature, hoping that the cashier will double coupons accidentally that do not double and let things slide that shouldn't slide. One woman said that young men were the best way to go. Another mentioned developing a rapport with the cashier.

I just want to go on the record-that's wrong. It's unethical. The company has set terms for using their coupons and by using them you agree with their terms. I also want to go a step further and blame the fact that people do stuff like this for every cashier that's ever given me a hard time ever. They're traumatized from getting in trouble because they've made mistakes with coupons.

Do you honestly think they don't get called on this!?!?

Get your deals, and get them honestly. It's not that hard. Follow the rules, before you ruin it for the rest of us.

Not only do they get called on this the cashier could loose their job. But, maybe it's more important to cheat and get the extra fifty cents than care about harming others.
