I've had several people reach out to me today and bring to my attention 2 different articles from CouponsInTheNews. A few Newspapers in Florida, with the support of SmartSource, are putting a bounty reward of $500 to help fight against the reselling of coupons. More Newspapers are expected to jump on board. Please take the time to read these articles and educate yourself.
These articles back up everything I've said in the past.
I'm a big advocate for having good ethics when it comes to using coupons. It's something that I'm passionate about. I've wrote 2 articles about the Buying/Selling of Coupons and Reselling Stockpiles. Both articles, for the most part, got a good and positive response from all of you. However, on the flip side, I've had some very hateful and hurtful comments come in. Some saying that I'm self righteous and that I don't have the facts to back up what I say (even when I did link to legitimate sources including the CIC, Proctor and Gamble and Unilever Redemption policies). I've sat in a meeting room full of Newspaper employees (from 4 separate Newspaper companies) on the topic of Stolen Coupon Inserts from their newspapers and how this activity is hurting them more than anything else.
