Follow the Coupon Merchandiser Reps and steal the whole tear pads.
Yes People do this. They figure out the schedules, and begin stalking them. You’ll then become the Crazy Extreme Coupon Lady. As this behavior is extreme. You will be named “Stalker” and not in a pleasant way. At the end : The Store Manager and usually all the staff will know about this incident and you’ve then been marked.
Rip off Peelies/hangtags on other products
Don’t rip off peelies you see on products you have not bought. If caught this can be considered creating damaged goods. Everyone has seen this done a time or two. I simply don’t understand it myself, as I would never even consider doing this, but I’ve heard several stories from cashiers and other couponers.
You are NOT invisible. If you constantly do this, You will be spotted at some point, and you will then earn a reputation of a thief, and you will find yourself closely watched as you enter the store.
Steal Inserts out of Newspapers you have not purchased in side store: Yes the majority of people do not coupon, and may never use that insert, but it’s really wrong to steal inserts out of the newspaper because you think you need them. It’s one thing to find them in the recycle bins, or you find yesterday’s paper with them still in it. But If the insert is in “Todays” paper, and your taking all the inserts out of all the papers this is simply wrong. It’s one thing to take it out of MacDonald’s where you have coffee in the morning. But if your standing at a newspaper display taking out all the inserts of Today’s paper so no body else can grab them, this is simply wrong.
Stealing Coupon Binders: I’ve heard of people getting them stolen twice now ( right out of the carts) …….. This is just plain theft. So if you have a coupon binder, make sure you don’t take your eyes off it. One story I heard about was she was putting her kids in their car seats in the parking lot, when her binder was taken. And the other story I heard was she was inside the store, and she turned her back to grab something on the lowest shelf, and her binder disappeared.
Rudeness: This is the easiest way to be an Extreme Couponer, that no one wants at their till. You may be right in your arguments, but there’s never an excuse for being Rude. You can always state your facts with a smile, and be diplomatic in your arguments. Understand that the cashier is simply doing their job to the best of their abilities, and making mistakes on their end can lose them a job
