As a mod of Slickdeals, I cannot believe you posted this, as I totally disagree.
I completely agree with you as well...that is a VERY slippery slope right there. Links vs patties? Who cares...it didn't beep. So that means using that Dawn q on Pampers won't matter either...since it won't beep. And since the store didn't notice, well good for me. Where do we draw the line?

If SD is going to head down this path, I see bad things in our future. This site has always been the most ethical place I have seen, and I hate for that to start moving downhill...

Reps are back...for now. Stick Out Tongue I owe loads of gratitude to everyone that got me where I am! Read the *NEW* CVS FAQ and post your questions there. Let's keep the deal threads deal-related, please.
Would it kill you to read the wiki? Or to read the thread? All the experts got to where they are by reading...you can too.

How about this. Let's table the coupon discussion until we get official word from the powers-that-be on a published coupon policy.

Let me expand on this a bit. We will not be allowing illegal activity or coupon fraud. Our policy, once published, will reflect this. As I mentioned previously, I myself am not completely straight on what our current coupon policy is so it's entirely possible that the example we are discussing is a moot point anyway. Once the policy is published we'll get back to the coupon discussion but in the meantime I'm not so sure that it is productive to speculate on things that are yet to be determined by the legal guys.

I also agree that what makes SD's great for me is the fact that unethical Q use isn't discussed. If that changes then I'm not sure I'd be around to be a part of it.

Before you know it people will be using Crest White Strips Coupons on Dawn Dish soap because it scans. Who doesn't want $9.00 of overage on each item... this line of thinking has "Disaster" written all over it Sadwalk

Well hopefully once the new policy is written, it won't allow these types of discussions.


I really wish Slayers were still modding. He seemed to know so many of the store's policies. What a bear this forum must have been to handle mostly by himself. I just hope this doesn't turn into a cluster funk. EEK!

I guess I may be alone in the thoughts I was trying to convey. I do NOT encourage, nor do I approve of coupon mis-use. I hope none of you (members or mods) got that impression from the example I gave (RA and printables over $5).

My whole concern is the appearance of impropriety on this board. I can use coupons legally and legitimately all day long in every store I shop at. By the same token, I can teach others to do the same. What I canNOT do is force others to do as I do when they shop.

We should all police ourselves but the reality is, some folks are gonna see more value in rep points for posting a "questionable" deal that most people can get in on, than they are in posting a "by-the-book" deal that requires a moral compass.

I see the rest of SD (Hot Deals, namely) as being a whole different animal from the DS forum. I've seen some abuse and craziness in HD that would NEVER fly in the DS forum! And color me twisted but I find most of the craziness in HD to be a riot. laugh out loud But I digress.

I'm all for policing ourselves; I just want to know that there's someone out there backing me up if I MA a post containing "questionable" behavior. And I'm not throwing Slayers way of doing things in anyone's face, I'd just like to go on the record as stating that he was really good about backing up those who played by the rules and worried about this forum's integrity.

Oh not at all! hug That's comparing an apple and an orange. The will probably both get reimbursed as long as in TR's scenario the store in question sell both kinds of sausage. (not saying that makes it right though.) But sometimes store policy doesn't make any sense.

Quote from The Raddish View Post :
Whether the policy of the store is very loose and they take the coupon and apply it to either product, or the policy of the store is to strictly enforce that the item on the coupon is the only item to which the coupon is applied, it is still up to the store to enforce its own policy either way. It is not up to SD staff to decide.

If the coupon were altered to state that it was for links instead of patties, or if the user violated our (yet to be) published coupon policies in some other fashion, the user would be warned as appropriate.

Again, once we have published our coupon rules we can go from there.
Problem is, a lot of people pull this bulltiki at the SCO, so the store never sees the q and doesn't get to decide if they want to take it or not. Then we have the people who purposely pick out the most clueless looking cashier, and sneak the incorrect q by them. When the mgr. catches on, the poor soul will probably lose their job. Lastly, when a q is used for an item it was not intended for, and the store does not carry the item it was intended for, there's a good chance the store will not be reimbursed.

SDs should in no way facilitate this kind of behavior. We're better than that.

ETA: Responded before I read the discussion was tabled.

LOL, just the coupon enforcement aspect is tabled for now, everything else is open for discussion.

I just didn't want to give the impression that we are pausing all discussion here. Smilie

I think you should sticky it again-we need some where obvious for the new couponers to ask their question in my opinion.

I won't be stickying any more threads to the top, just this one. Multiple stickies makes a forum look cluttered.

Once we've completed the discussion, perhaps we'll change the name of this thread to something more akin to catching the eye of new users and perhaps change the layout of the first post to send the new folks more directly to specific helpful threads. We'd then leave the rest of the index intact.

The more I think about it, the more this approach makes sense because all of the seasoned users already know about the index, and it would easily direct new users right to helpful threads while still keeping the forum uncluttered of thousands of stickies. Scratchchin
