Title: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on December 30, 2012, 06:30 am
Hi, I'm PurpleLotus!

250+ pages of reviews later, and I've decided to shift my review thread over to the Rumor mill.

I'd like to apologize to everyone who's post counts got nerfed in this moving process, but it was a necessary inconvenience.

My main listing can be found here: http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/item/cc294943b1
and my HardCore collection is once again offered here: http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/item/baa353a3bc

And my vendor account can be found in my signature.

All of my work is custom made, and is only distributed here on the Silk Road. All of this work is custom for this community only.

Without further delay I would like to announce tonight's additions of new coupons to the original collection. These are free for anyone who has previously purchased this listing, and hopefully it will catch the eye of some new customers too. All of these additions have been made based off my customers suggestions, with the rare exception that I want some shit myself.

This is my obligatory third 'first' post....

Anyways, looking forward to using the new coupons as usual PL. Thanks for all your hard work.

Oh.. I didn't know you were going to add new coupons to the HC collection still. I guess i completely misunderstood you, thanks! I really didn't expect your customer service to be as good as this. Keep up the good work!

Aside from that, can someone explain to me why BMR is so bad? I'm just asking cause i'm relatively new the to black market scene, so i don't know about much of this stuff. Thanks.

Went out today and tried out a few of the coupons at Shaw's. Completely paid for the listing cost in my first run:

2 Axe Body Washes (different flavors or whatever they are)
1 Horizon Organic Milk half gallon
2 Different flavors of Starbucks VIA (super key)
2 4 packs of Red Bull Total Zero. These were on sale for $2 off anyway and so came out to about $1 apiece! Red Bull is super popular at my job, so I think I'm just going to be constantly buying and giving these away.

I also picked up another thing of Red Bull at CVS with no problem.

The only one that didn't work was the iTunes gift cards because Shaw's doesn't take internet coupons for over $5. This was the first coupon she looked at and was the one she handed to the manager. I'm going to try again, giving them at the end of the stack instead of the beginning. Manager had no problem with any of the other coupons though. CVS also doesn't allow discounts on gift cards apparently? I'll try again tomorrow.

Thank you so much PL for these coupons. It's going to help a lot in the coming months.

Phillie Blunt Coupon is uploaded now.

You know how you get the UPC off a box of Phillies? They are hidden behind the customer service counter every place you could go.

"Hi, I'm on a scavenger hunt, and could you help me out by letting me take a picture of that box of Phillies?"

Anyone else think a blunt coupon is worth the Champs time to create?

"Had to test out a few more this evening before a big Sunday Run!  Visited a local Walmart and two local grocery stores which will remain anonymous.

Anyway no real issues to report back! Everything scanned with the exception of one Simply Orange which came up as .01 so the cashier had to manually key in.

Used this evening Dr. Scholls, Tazo Tea, Dove Bar Soap, Bustello, Natures Bounty, Silk, Horizon and of course Simply Orange.

All total saved about $110 this evening."

POSTED ON THE 28TH

"Have been away for a bit and wanted to get back to it!

Just Got Back from a Walmart Trip!  Just a few items!  Pretty successful!  2 Milk, 2 Bustelo, Dove and Eggs only thing that was denied was the Reynolds Wrap which came up with a unmatched item error!  Older cashier was very nice just handed me back and said didn't scan cant take it.

So easy $20.00 savings on needed items!  Will try more tomorrow - Thanks a bunch!  Glad everything is cleared up for you!"

For anyone who is on the fence, and I cannot imagine why you would be, BUY THIS LISTING! First off everything works. Whenever there is an issue, not only are you getting all the coupons, but also PurpleLotus offers the best customer service on the road! If you find an issue he is quick to respond and fix your problem! I cannot speak highly enough as Mr. Lotus.

Thanks for all you have done for our community.

I'm glad ya'll like the new coupons. Can't wait to hear about the trips.

Also, yeah we obviously all still enjoy the HC collection, but since I'm retiring it, there isn't much need to come here and report back on those coupons specifically. I plan to keep up the good work with that collection too so those of us who own it can still have fun, but for the foreseeable future it will no longer be offered here on SR. So as far as this review thread goes.... don't speak about Fight Club. There's a reason it's not sold anymore, and it's not because it wasn't completely awesome. It sure was, and still is.

If anyone has any issue with the HC collection, just shoot me a message and I'll get ti sorted out with you for sure, as always. If anything important ever needs to be announced in regards to that collection, I'll come announce it, but I'd like to keep most of the discussion about listings of mine that are active on this thread.

I'm going to retire that damned Simply OJ coupon too and just pick a new brand of OJ. Not sure why Walmart seems to hate coupons for Simply Orange juice.

Happy New Years! I'll be back in full force after New Years, and will be filling orders on and off until then.

P&G make philly blunts?
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: netipots on December 31, 2012, 01:03 am
Swisher sweets are popular, white owls or dutchs. Philly blunts are not bad either but theres sucha a big selection for blunts. Game - Garcia Vegas are nice and people love them cause they last forever.
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on December 31, 2012, 01:08 am
HAHA no P&G do not make philly blunts... that was an afterthought, forgot to include it, and then was reminded after I finished the upload and was half way fucked up at that point. Fixing it now.

Update: Philly Blunt coupon is now fixed. I normally never make a coupon when I'm loaded, but the Philly Blunt coupon was more of a novelty coupon than a serious one, and I added it last second after the original release last night.

I will be making another release next weekend to pick up the requests that were unfortunately left out due to time constraints. I did forget a hand full of crucial ones that I intended to get in there for sure.

Also I retired the Simply Orange coupon, apparently Walmart just has it blocked or something, no telling... any suggestions on what kind of Orange Juice we want now? For those of you who the Simply coupon always worked for, like myself, go ahead and knock yourself out and keep using it. I just don't want to cause complications for the ones who had trouble with it.

 I have other plans in the works for ways to earn future income without causing the same heat the HC collection drew.


I'm interested in hearing about this.
Thanks for retiring HC.  I was getting jealous because I never had the time to pursue it proper.  For anyone reading I want you to know that I spent 6% on my groceries this week.  You just have to look for the sales and pick stuff up when it's below the coupon value.  And to furthermore emphasize the value of this collection, I might as well have a coupon for pussy because I  now know that coupons are pantie droppers.  I know..I still don't believe it.  Not even benjamin franklin gets this kind of repute with the ladies.  Good God!

Shit dude... if you only knew the half of it. First coupon I ever made got me laid, it was for Trojan condoms HAHA.

Another funny story, my buddy who introduced me to my first "coupon" back in 2010 called me up recently. He knew I became obsessed with them once he introduced it to me. We had not spoken about it for more than a year now, before I started off here, and never spoke of Silk Road at any point. He calls me just to tell me "Hey, you ever hear of Silk Road? They got this dude selling this coupon pack and you might want to go check it out. You would like it."

Funny shit. Well, he is right, I do in fact like it! :-)

Today I printed those most excellent additions out and still had all the old ones as well and took my girl shopping. we used about $90 in coupons but we split up at the register. she took the food, I took the non food. we had success with all but 2 coupons. the covergirl coupon and the axe coupon both didnt go, but are cashiers just typed them in anyway. if you go on Sunday they are so busy they don't want to take the time to get a CSM just for one little coupon. because we split up the transactions and didn't buy anything cheaper than the actual coupons, we didn't even need a CSM. we just checked out, met back up and proceeded to our car with shit eating grins on our faces. This is some of what we got:

kleenex
burts bees
paper plates
makeup
condoms
mouthwash
shampoo
axe detailer
general mills and kashi cereal
pop tarts
toms toothpaste
uncrustables
pizza
soap
lots of cheese
chicken breasts and tysons boneless chicken wings
...and a bunch of other shit that costs a lot

the combined total before coupons for both transactions was $115.81
after coupons: $28.31
we saved over 75%!
here is a tip for all you guys reading this wondering whether you should buy PL's listing: Do it! Do it Now! do you like spending all your hard earned money buying food when you could be using it for more nefarious purposes?

@purplelotus, Thank you for the new additions. I can tell you the new coupons I used: chicken, Toms, dove body wash, general mills, johnsonville, kleenex, uncrustables,and suave

I have a question: I have been under the assumption that if you use a coupon for something that costs less than the value of the coupon, WM wont take it. is this true? cuz my WM only sells the small Annies stuff and the coupon is for more than those little boxes.
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on December 31, 2012, 01:57 am
Last I checked WM will take it, but it only gives you off up to the amount of the product. If you go to Target and use a coupon worth more than the actual item, that shit gets straight credited to the rest of your purchase. It's how I get free beer.

Update: Philly Blunt coupon is now fixed. I normally never make a coupon when I'm loaded, but the Philly Blunt coupon was more of a novelty coupon than a serious one, and I added it last second after the original release last night.

I will be making another release next weekend to pick up the requests that were unfortunately left out due to time constraints. I did forget a hand full of crucial ones that I intended to get in there for sure.

Also I retired the Simply Orange coupon, apparently Walmart just has it blocked or something, no telling... any suggestions on what kind of Orange Juice we want now? For those of you who the Simply coupon always worked for, like myself, go ahead and knock yourself out and keep using it. I just don't want to cause complications for the ones who had trouble with it.

PL

Minute Maid OJ and Dole Juices are great because of variety. National brand sold and its good. Let me know if you need a code.

Last I checked WM will take it, but it only gives you off up to the amount of the product. If you go to Target and use a coupon worth more than the actual item, that shit gets straight credited to the rest of your purchase. It's how I get free beer.

PL my WM takes it and credits it toward the other groceries. They wont turn you down for having a coupon larger than the item. Its just less attention by a potential CSM if you dont.
Not once have I had a CSM to have to approve a coupon for larger than the amount as long as its under 10.00 coupon. They only have to approve the sale over a certain amount and that has never been a problem for me. These coupons are the bomb!

I'll still be using the Simply, its an issue with the GS1, the old style scans fine. And I use it for apple juice. My target at least ALWAYS scans the old style barcode, bless their hearts.
 *clearnet* this is the brand of dried fruits I was thinking of, not Sunsweet. Sunsweet does prunes and stuff. This one does cherries, blueberries, strawberries, all kinds of non-prunes haha. A future addition for this brand would be dope

http://www.mariani.com/products/

And thanks PL, you got a LOT of the additions I really wanted, especially socks.

Wal-Mart SHOULD be giving you overage for your coupons btw, its in their policy. I almost always take in 6 bic pen coupons and buy whatever the cheapest thing is. My store its the crystal pens, each coupon gives me a little over $3 bucks of overage. BONUS - overage at wal-mart will actually pay the tax on your stuff, at Target you will still pay the tax. Just little differences. Target has their xmas candy on clearance right now too. M&ms type stuff is $1.49 a bag. 2x whatever candy you want + a bic pen = FREE candy (overage) I got $20 bucks of candy and a gallon of radiator fluid yesterday for a few bucks.

PL did you ever upload the sodastream coupon that Glitchey made?  I may not be 100% correct in thinking he made it, but thats who I thought did.  I may have just not downloaded it.

Also has anyone had success with the Shell gas card?  If so where did you pick it up at? I have looked around several stores and can't seem to find them.

Yes it is in there.  Just look again, it is at the bottom of the list of #3.

My female friend and I just got back from about a 3 hour shopping trip.  Tried to target 5-7 key items in several stores and each did our own run.  Everything went smoothly - stayed with the major players in the retail industry and one fairly large grocery store chain.  Only problem was the Dr. Scholls at one location which was unable to scan and the Starbucks Ice cream - $5.00 off two - needed to be approved which it was with out incident but still needed that magic key turn. 

Besides that everything went smoothly and I have to say our interest is renewed!  K-Cups are awesome and what a great savings!  We also racked up on Tazo Tea ( love that shit ) , Reyonalds Wrap, Clorax, Dove Soap, Dove Deodorant, Natures Bounty Vitamins ( what a great coupon ) happened to be on sale and really scored big, Bustello Coffee, Horizon Milk, Silk, and Celestial Tea..... Overall $101.00 in coupons  and a total of about $327.26 in products between yesterday and today!

Can't wait for next weekend! Thanks again!

@zeke: its no worries, my main reason at this point is not to confuse the heck out of new readers. There was nothing wrong with the HC collection in the sense that we should be worried, actually I'd say this is a good thing for those of us who own it since now we are the only ones who ever will. Once I can make a few adjustments and iron some things out, we will see me get bold again. I'm simply turning down the heat at the moment. Being suspended and all that scared the crap out of me, I cannot let this thing die now... We have so many more goals to reach here.

If anyone has questions about anything, like why I'm retiring it... PM me. It's not because there is any thing for you to worry about. It's me that's worried and about our future if I let that continue.

Also, kitkat, let me take you to the strip club, we can make it rain bitcoins in that bitch! <3

PL do you generally not want to go over a certain dollar amount saved in the regular edition?  I've noticed most coupons don't go over $10, is that what you try to stay under?  Just wondering so I can knick certain want items off.  One thing I did think about while at the store tonight was board games.  I spend a lot of time with youth and spend tons of board games.  Maybe like $10 off any milton bradley game, Disney Game, Hasbro, Jakks Pacific, Mattel, Nickelodeon, etc...  Maybe a coupon for Lego products also?  I spend usually around $100 a month on various activities for children.

Just wanted to amend my earlier post, I got the $10 off iTunes to work at CVS today.

PL, is there any chance you will consider doing a Goya coupon? They make so many things that are important but also unperishable: beans, olive oil, seasonings, boullion, olives (martinis are important), chopped garlic. I could literally stock most of my entire pantry with one solid Goya coupon.

I would pay for it as a custom job, even.

I'm with you PL, this stuff is addicting. I'm finding myself going to the store twice now when I need to go shopping. First time to do recon and take pics of skus and crap. Then go home and make a few coupons. Then back to the store to use those coupons on the stuff I scoped out earlier.  8) I do start to wonder if people in the stores find it odd I'm taking pictures of the skus!  ;D

Have a party at a friends house tonight and he and I got all the party supplies for maybe 20 people for well under $50.

I've started to make a few toy coupons and when I get them finished and tested will share here. The bigger one is $x off any hasboro game or toy. I've notice 75% of the stuff my girls have wanted is Hasboro, so I figure why the hell not!

Oh, I noticed that PetCo scans the actual databar and not the normal UPC. The Blue dog food coupon worked without a hitch. Cashier scanned item, scanned coupon and then the register said scan item, so he hit the item again and off came the amount! Now I can feed my dog the proper (expensive) food he deserves! lol

Check out walmarts coupon policy and you shouldn't be having a problem with the coupons. I'd get into how I've surpassed Walmart with nearly $600 worth of free stuff with these, but a "great magician never reveals his tricks"  ;)

I had the same thought and I think the truth of it is if you have a smart phone, people just think (if anything at all) that you are using one of those barcode apps. I have also seen a man legit on the phone with his wife, taking pictures of a product and SMS them to her on the phone to make sure it is indeed the correct product.

So I think you are fine. (me too) lol.

Used a hand full of the brand new coupons at WM today with out a problem. Saved over $50, as usual. I'm so fucking spoiled with these things, that I refuse to pay if the savings is not 50% off or more.

Great, now thanks to Purple Lotus, I have another New Years resolution....trying to learn how to pay full price. I just can't see it happening, can anyone else? Just try imaging not using a single coupon for items you've purchased in the past with these coupons. I can't.

If anyone is still questioning the validity of these coupons and the saving to be had that PL is offering (along with the fact he has the best customer service on the Road), just ask anyone here. You'll save more then what the cost of the coupons are on 1 trip to the store.

Post by: purplelotus on January 01, 2013, 09:26 pm
Ok, so I have flip flopped more this week than a politician on an election year, but after talking with others and weighing the pros and cons of each decision...

I have decided not to retire the Hardcore Collection.

The biggest issue I had for not retiring it was not having a place for us to discuss it and also I did still want to continue my work on it in the future, but for awhile there just making disappear seemed like the best idea for maintaining our long term survivability.

In the future I will be making all HC coupons have a different look than any of the original collections, and a different angle as to where we are getting them and who is distributing them to customers (or who it appears is, of course).

In another effort to curve the HC collection from getting out of hand we have decided to significantly raise the price for new buyers moving forward. Not sure what effect this will have on sales, but since we were retiring it completely a day ago, it doesn't really matter much to me about sales right now and I suspect they will pick up once the next set of additions is made.

People were messaging me a bunch and asking if they should be worried about using the HC collection since I was retiring it, and the answer to that is that no, there was no external, outside danger pressuring me to retire it. If that were ever the case I would be extremely open about such a thing.


Anyways, enough about that, it's still available and as a result you can still discuss it here. Also I am removing the iPod coupon, which is now a discontinued model, and as a result of this change the HC collection is now 100% confirmed as working.

I hope everyone is enjoying the new coupons added to the original collection and I hope this new thread lasts us forever.

Happy New Year to everyone,
PurpleLotus

If you bought the original collection prior to 2013, then you can hit me up for a custom order at the 2012 price. I'm not in the business of disappointing those who purchased the original collection and intended to buy the HC collection before these changes were put into effect, going forward these are the prices and no exceptions will be made.
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 02, 2013, 03:37 am
The following changes have been made to the Original Collection:

Reynold's Wrap Aluminum Foil
Nature's Bounty
Nutella

Have all had aesthetic change's made to them to make them more believable in stores.

New coupons now added:

Tropicana Orange Juice
Home Run Inn Pizza
Crest White Strips $20 off
Progresso Soup

The 4 new coupons can be found in file #7.

Shootouts to respected vendors:

I can say from personal experience that the Tropicana coupon goes great with Blueveil's shrooms. It's an amazing experience which is as close to a DMT trip as I've ever experienced, meaning I was in a completely different world for the peak of the trip.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/6b054e104e - Highly recommended, product and customer service is on par with mine any day of the week.

420blindman - still the best pot I've ever smoked and always my go to guy on my buyer account when all I am looking for is a personal stash... His shake/trim deal is also amazing and I've tried it personally, it blows the other top vendors who offer a similar listing out of the water in terms of price and quality. Best option for cooking or just smoking blunts with my Philly coupon.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/bc73c406d1

FarmerBob - Best deal on SR for OZ+ in terms of price:quality. Quality is par with 420blindman, meaning it's top notch! Looks like at the moment he is only offering smaller listings of outdoor, but the price is RIGHT and I can certainly vouch for his customer service and quality of product, though I have not tried his latest outdoor strains.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/d418b308bd

And finally, if you are looking for a quick, easy, and pleasant experience in buying bitcoins, I highly recommend CaptainMal as the absolute best to deal with, a complete pleasure and always on point, accommodating, and quick to have bitcoins in your hands, which is what we all want. SR users are all about instant gratification and we aren't interested in dealing with someone who will make us wait 24 hours or even more as many BTC vendors will do. A+ 100%, would never consider business with another.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/aea18a79c0

 
Doing business with any of these vendors is assured to be as pleasant and rewarding of an experience here on the Road as dealing with me personally. They are without a doubt my favorites and my only regret is they don't have a register capable of accepting coupons.

In COUPON news, I will spend the next two weeks working on HC coupons. I am hoping to have RX back any day now so the two of us can once again work together to create some awesome work. Since I haven't communicated with him, I'm throwing the 2 week # out there, but I think if me and him get on point soon enough we can actually make a really nice set of additions much sooner.

bought a bunch of other stuff too, not only cause it makes it look good in my opinion, but also cause it needed to be bought!

All said and done with full price items minused off the bill. The total WAS (aprox) $140.00......after coupon savings. (aprox $33.00)!!!

Saved well over

!!! $110.00 !!!
in one trip.
B&W Coupons.
Regular computer paper.
No one bats an eye.

This type of thing is totally normal and so are the savings. The cashier even asked "did you print these off the internet?" The shopper told her, yes some of them and some were given to me by a relative; the whole family uses coupons and passes them all around..blah blah blah.

I was told the cashier didn't even care was simply making small talk as the manager had to come over to override the transaction cause of all the savings. The manager had finally came over, never even made eye contact with the people checking out. turned a key hit some buttons removed his key.....and out the door!

Happy New Year PL! and thanks alot!

This type of thing is totally normal and so are the savings. The cashier even asked "did you print these off the internet?" The shopper told her, yes some of them and some were given to me by a relative; the whole family uses coupons and passes them all around..blah blah blah.

I was told the cashier didn't even care was simply making small talk as the manager had to come over to override the transaction cause of all the savings. The manager had finally came over, never even made eye contact with the people checking out. turned a key hit some buttons removed his key.....and out the door!

Happy New Year PL! and thanks alot!

Just checking in! Saw the new updates with the new "4" coupons. Just didn't see the tropicana orange juice in the file 7..

The following changes have been made to the Original Collection:

Reynold's Wrap Aluminum Foil
Nature's Bounty
Nutella

Have all had aesthetic change's made to them to make them more believable in stores.

New coupons now added:

Tropicana Orange Juice
Home Run Inn Pizza
Crest White Strips $20 off
Progresso Soup

The 4 new coupons can be found in file #7.

Shootouts to respected vendors:

I can say from personal experience that the Tropicana coupon goes great with Blueveil's shrooms. It's an amazing experience which is as close to a DMT trip as I've ever experienced, meaning I was in a completely different world for the peak of the trip.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/6b054e104e - Highly recommended, product and customer service is on par with mine any day of the week.

420blindman - still the best pot I've ever smoked and always my go to guy on my buyer account when all I am looking for is a personal stash... His shake/trim deal is also amazing and I've tried it personally, it blows the other top vendors who offer a similar listing out of the water in terms of price and quality. Best option for cooking or just smoking blunts with my Philly coupon.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/bc73c406d1

FarmerBob - Best deal on SR for OZ+ in terms of price:quality. Quality is par with 420blindman, meaning it's top notch! Looks like at the moment he is only offering smaller listings of outdoor, but the price is RIGHT and I can certainly vouch for his customer service and quality of product, though I have not tried his latest outdoor strains.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/d418b308bd

And finally, if you are looking for a quick, easy, and pleasant experience in buying bitcoins, I highly recommend CaptainMal as the absolute best to deal with, a complete pleasure and always on point, accommodating, and quick to have bitcoins in your hands, which is what we all want. SR users are all about instant gratification and we aren't interested in dealing with someone who will make us wait 24 hours or even more as many BTC vendors will do. A+ 100%, would never consider business with another.
http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/aea18a79c0

 
Doing business with any of these vendors is assured to be as pleasant and rewarding of an experience here on the Road as dealing with me personally. They are without a doubt my favorites and my only regret is they don't have a register capable of accepting coupons.

In COUPON news, I will spend the next two weeks working on HC coupons. I am hoping to have RX back any day now so the two of us can once again work together to create some awesome work. Since I haven't communicated with him, I'm throwing the 2 week # out there, but I think if me and him get on point soon enough we can actually make a really nice set of additions much sooner.

Yes Stylez, plenty have tried, and several have succeeded. If anyone who had success wants to share with Stylez, please do.

BB was a no go for me I would really like to know where others have had success


I finally had true success with HC collection.  My first success was with playstation network $50 card, worked great. I kept the card for about half a day before trying to use it. When I did try it said that the code was no longer valid or there was a problem.  I just happen to have some of the visa gcc with me on my way to a party and decided to give it a shot.  I got 3 $50 gc using the 40 off!! needless to say I was late to my party cause I had to use them asap. PL is the man!!

This is odd because that's not even long enough for the coupon to have been found as fake. Are you sure it wasn't user error or that the cashier actually activated it? Call to see if it has a balance?

Yes, they both worked just fine for me yesterday. I didn't use them at Target though, I used one of the HC coupons at Target yesterday and it was also flawless.

Did you have any success with other coupons in that Target trip? And... I would ask if you checked the UPC to match, but I highly doubt Horizon suddenly changed their UPC? But maybe that is possible, idk. Tell me more details in a PM and we will get it resolved for you.

Thanks PL for the Crest Whitening Strips :).

I'll try and think of some hardcore coupons... will most likely pm them to you.

I was able to return a foodsaver to walmart without the receipt after speaking to every manager they had, what a fight... finally the last superior manager just said he can give me store credit and that was that.

I have another foodsaver though, I'm wondering if returning it with the actual receipt which I have kept would work? It says I payed something like 54 in cash and a mfr coupon -100. What do you think will happen if I try? Can you think of anything bad? I'm also thinking of tearing the receipt and saying it got tore in my pocket or something and I just have the barcode part, in there system does it show that I bought it and that I used a coupon or just that I bought it?
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 02, 2013, 07:57 pm
Why not just give it a shot? I wouldn't do the ripped UPC thing, and also make sure you DO NOT try to return it to the same store you passed the coupon at. Just go in and try to return it, the way I see it, they already assume the coupon has been sent off and therefor they will be paid, so they should refund the full amount to you... right? IDK, give it a shot and let us know how it goes. I have had reports of this working for some people but have never attempted it myself. I always just settle for store credit instead of cash.

I would settle for store credit but even that is a pain with walmart now.. I definitely won't be going to the same store..I haven't thought of a convincing enough reason as to why I would return something that I got for $100 off. I guess I can say it was a gift I didn't want..

Walmart has a really funny return policy on electronics... I've had issues with them in the past too, but went to Best Buy and it was simple there, but not sure if they carry the foodsaver. I would always default to Best Buy for my returns assuming they carried the item and I actually had something I needed at Best Buy.
Title: Re: Vendor: Purple Lotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: Shroomeister on January 02, 2013, 10:11 pm
Why not just sell it instead of the instant gratification of return?

I need me a food saver. lol

Back in the day as a kid I had a Play Station 1 fro years. Mine was shitty and I was a kid; my buddy had just bought a new one.

I "cleaned" mine up and put it in his box and returned it to Wallyworld. The return desk took it; sent me back to electronics to get another one. By the time I got back there "electronics" sent me back to the front empty handed. apprently they radioed eachother while I was on my walk.

When I got back to the fron they called my bluff and said "look at this...its like dirty and old"

Again; I was a kid - the only recourse I had left was

"I KNOWWWW WTFF...I just got it the other day... I open it up and that is what is inside! How do you think I feel about this!?"

......dont know how, but it worked..... I pretty much convinced them that someone else conned them; they restocked a used dirty PS1 and then sold it to me.... I got a new PS1 that day.

This story is more then 15 years old. I am not recommending it by any means, but my point is - these coupons bring that feeling of victory back all over again!

IMHO - BestBuy is a BITCH about returns, but I think it all depends who is in charge.

Hey PL-

I was thinking, re: new HC collection, perhaps TIRES?

Most big retailers have auto sections, with brands like Goodyear, Michelin, Toyo, etc.  A coupon for "buy one tire, get one free", or a specific $$ amount off a set of 2 would work.  Having the coupon be for a set of 2 instead of 4 would make the coupon have a "smaller impact" (thus less shocking??),  and a person could just hit another store for the other two.

Tires are a BITCH (especially when you are least expecting to have to replace.) 

A good back-story (or full-page) could be THANKS for participating as a Goodyear product tester, or focus group, etc.

Just my $.02

Maybe someone with inside information @ Firestone,  Pepboys, Sears Walmart.com - Auto Care Center and AutoZone... would be able to provide info on them items.

Cool story Shroomeister,

I was succesful at returning it, I was nice about it so they decided to take it back as a no receipt return, they would not refund me 100 for a coupon for pretty obvious reasons.

I then went to another walmart to do some grocery shopping, and I have to say I got really heated when two managers had to tell me they cant take them because they don't have a website. I tried explaining that they were mfr coupons but didn't work, retard thought I had photo copied them. PL I'm asking you as I sit on my ass on my couch, but if I was in front of you I would probably crawl to you like a rodent to cheese and ask that you add websites to all the coupons. SO effin frustrating waiting in line, cutting them all out and shit to be told this. I didn't go to another walmart because I don't want to go through the same shit, and I've burnt the other stores around me.

PLEASE! I'm willing to do the photoshop work myself if I can get what I need to do it, I don't give a fuck if they all say from ecentives or not.

as for the HC Collection, items that are highly resellable would be awesome. coupons for guitar center would be killer, if you want specific items i would love to help.

Do you foresee that you could produce HQ concert tickets? Ultra...Coachella

There has been some discussion of us creating our own coupon verification website. I even ripped off a real one, all we would need to do is make it to where when they go to our site, and enter the code I put on the coupon, it queries the database and comes back with the coupon name and amount and "Verified". Seems really simple, but I'm no web designer. I'd love to put it in action though, it would be a really awesome boost to my work.

Fuck yeah Jdank!

So, talking with my partner RX, we have decided in the future all new HC coupons will either be full page or half page ads. This will require more time from us to work on each coupon, but ultimately it will make for a higher rate of success with the HC collection and also be very distinctly different from anything seen in the original collection as not to cause issues for OC coupons, just because HC coupons are used somewhere.

Also, there was discussion and debate about a particular coupon that I later said "Ok, Ill make it but throw it into the HC collection instead". Well I made that coupon and you can now find it in the HC collection. It is just for one manufacturer at the moment, even though many were suggested. Just want to see how it does, please let me know if you use it. You will find it in the root, and it's titled Winchester.jpg ;-)

Is there an obvious difference between the two Nature's Bounty coupons (updated one from yesterday and the earlier one)?  I think I downloaded and printed the new one but side by side I can't tell the difference.  The bottles seem a little stretched out horizontally so not sure which one I should be using or if that got fixed. Thanks!

I would use the hell out of that coupon myself, if my profile wasn't so important to our mission.

I might get some of my friends to go use it while I just chill back and watch. Seems like fun. (This is actually something I do, let other people test coupons while I get to watch the show)

Look at the EXP date... see it? It's possible I had the right one all along and was updating an older version someone pointed out to me...

It worked for me today, but 99% of people still don't realize it's not 2012 anymore I'm guessing.  These vitamin coupons are gonna be great--anyone who dabbles in mdma or related drugs should stock up on vitamin c, green tea extract, CoQ, and some of the other well-proven antioxidants to help get rid of all the free radicals that get left behind in your synapses (and make the after-effects much worse, IMO).

I love this thread.  It gives me hope that all the little guys will not just lay down as they are steamrolled by the megacorporations that control the politicians.  Keep it up PurpleLotus!!!!  You are truly a modern-day Robin Hood.

I am curious if this is a digital download, and if so how do you print the coupons to make them look legit?

Thank you for the kind words. Those are some of my favorites to hear.

It is a digital download, and the answer to your question about printing, 95% of my customers find it very simple, and every now and then I have to walk them through it, which I'm happy to do.

PL let me go ahead and say YOU ARE THE MOTHER FUCKING MAN!  I am so glad to see the newest addition to the HC collection.  I will do my best to go test it out tomorrow before work so long as I wake up with time to hit the store.  If it works you are about to save me a ton of money!  Is this one that you would suggest only using once per store?

Also I found some of the best glossy paper I've ever used.  A buddy suggested I check out Red River Paper.  I picked up a 100 pack of 8.5x11" 68LB UltaPro Gloss for around $40 after shipping.  It is a little pricey, but I only plan on using it on some of the tougher HC coupons.  I ordered it last Friday and it came in today.  Printed out just full page coupon, along with a hologram sticker and I have no doubt it will be easy to pass.  The paper has no watermarks on either side and is fairly heavy.  When cut evenly with a paper slicer and a hologram is used I have no doubt it will fool even the best cashier and manager.  ***CLEARNET*** http://www.redrivercatalog.com/browse/68lb-ultrapro-gloss.html

Also here is another huge list of various suggestions, I sent you a PM also but figured I would post here for discussion.

***I would love to see a juicer for the HC collection.
***RainX Windshield Wipers, the most expensive kind, I can't remember the type but they are like $15 or $20 for an 18" blade.  They work amazing and last quite a while!
This one is a long shot, but I figured its worth a shot.  A gun safe, no specifics just but preferably a fireproof one.
Sentry fireproof safes.  Again no specifics, maybe you could do like a $25 or $50 off any Sentry safe?  I haven't bought one in a few years so no idea how much they go for.  I think I paid $15 for a little sheet metal one that you could smash and open.  And I think I paid like $50 for my small fireproof one.
Xbox 360
Xbox 360 Controller
External Hard Drive
***16GB or 32GB Flash Drive - I need to pick up 15 of these suckers for a project.
Glossy Photo Paper & Cardstock
A HC coupon for a dremel, I already have one but imagine this would be a good one for others.
A generic coupon for dremel bits
I am not sure if it would be possible, but what about apple care+ warranties, Walmart sells them for iphones, ipods, and ipads.  They range from like $50-$200 for each device.  I honestly have no clue if this would work, or not.  After you add the apple care+ to your product I am not sure if Apple can take it off if the store reports it?
***Light bulbs - LED preferably
Would it be possible to create a generic coupon for DVDs, such as $15 off any Disney DVD or Bluray?
***Board Games - Maybe a generic one for different brands?  milton bradley, Disney Game, Hasbro, Jakks Pacific, Mattel, Nickelodeon, etc...
Spray Paint - Maybe Buy 2 cans save $5?
Duct Tape
Dyson Vacuum

hahaha, when I was 14 I had a similar situation  but with my mom instead of a friend. Lmao

we broke our non-premium xbox 360 (No HD).  So we decided to go to walmart, buy the premium one, replace the UPC stickers with our broken one. Then, we took the laptop harddrive out of the plastic enclosure w/ the cord to plug in.  we Kept it taped to the new premium xbox w/o the enclosure.  Then gorilla glued the enclosure on top of the old xbox 360 n even went as far as to replace the matte grey disk trey cover w/ the premium ones. Lol.

it was a free upgrade n fix.

funny shit. lmao



Why not just sell it instead of the instant gratification of return?

I need me a food saver. lol

Back in the day as a kid I had a Play Station 1 fro years. Mine was shitty and I was a kid; my buddy had just bought a new one.

I "cleaned" mine up and put it in his box and returned it to Wallyworld. The return desk took it; sent me back to electronics to get another one. By the time I got back there "electronics" sent me back to the front empty handed. apprently they radioed eachother while I was on my walk.

When I got back to the fron they called my bluff and said "look at this...its like dirty and old"

Again; I was a kid - the only recourse I had left was

"I KNOWWWW WTFF...I just got it the other day... I open it up and that is what is inside! How do you think I feel about this!?"

......dont know how, but it worked..... I pretty much convinced them that someone else conned them; they restocked a used dirty PS1 and then sold it to me.... I got a new PS1 that day.

This story is more then 15 years old. I am not recommending it by any means, but my point is - these coupons bring that feeling of victory back all over again!

IMHO - BestBuy is a BITCH about returns, but I think it all depends who is in charge.

No the updates and additions are free, you never have to purchase the same listing twice, only new listings.

I was forced to change the link a couple weeks ago due to scammers, I hate doing it, but sometimes it becomes necessary to weed out the bad apples and assure they no longer can access our stuff.

Message me on SR, using the account you made the purchase on and I'll get you hooked right up.

@spearwarrior: Grats man! I went 3 out of 3 and ran the table with Glitch's sodastream coupons not too long ago. I'm really happy with the Sodastream machine. Coins are always appreciated and certainly make a difference in encouraging us to push harder. Just knowing people appreciate the hard work and thought put into these collections is really some motivating stuff.

Some things I would like to see:

A coupon for 5-HTP for those of us that like to roll. In fact, a coupon for supplements in general would be fantastic. Like a "$X off any {Brand} Product" would be awesome. I'm willing to do some scouting for this if needed.

A coupon for Blu E-cig refills, which are now sold at Walgreens and CVS and I'm sure other places. We've got a coupon for cheap cigs, now let's get one for those that are trying to quit. :)

Keep up the good work PL!

Post by: purplelotus on January 03, 2013, 11:29 pm
Oh! I like the Blu E-Cig idea!

Also I still have to make that coupon for the Hitachi Magic Wand.

We actually have coupons for two different brands of supplements, but I'll look into 5-HTP, I've actually never heard of it.

Post by: Devaney1984 on January 04, 2013, 01:17 am
Yeah 5-htp would be awesome, that along w/antioxidants and melatonin takes away some of the hurt away from a molly come down and helps your body get its seratonin levels back up to par.  Checked a couple places to see if  Nature's Bounty makes it but they don't, I think Nature Made or whatever the other big vitamin manufacturer makes it though.

Post by: robotrippin on January 04, 2013, 02:15 am
I've thought about things like this but I haven't had any trouble using any coupons as they are, so this all seems unnecessary.  The only coupons I could see trying to add some validity to are the higher value ones. And  when it applies to those I see this method as overkill. Clearly they aren't passing $10 off this or $20 off that coupons around in mass circulation so that can only serve as another red flag.  The best thing is to come up with a bulletproof story and have it down solid. Not really the cliche "I filled out a survey" but something unique. That story is up to you however, I won't divulge my line. The survey shit does work though. You have to understand the coupons all scan just fine. In time of question it's how convincing you are, not necessarily the coupon, that matters. Obviously the coupon should be of quality production, but if you can't play the part it's really irrelevant. Like I said though. I've never had an issue passing of anything from the OG collection. It's only the hardcore coupons that require you to be on top of your game.

My latest success with HC adventures. Manager gets called in... Looks at the coupon, then looks at me. Asks, "Did you print this off the internet?" (Yes, it was in black and white, that's how I roll) and I said:

"Well, I got one of these for Christmas and went online to register it for my extended warranty. After I registered it, they asked me to complete a quick survey, which I did... then they sent me an e-mail with this coupon and I figured I would come get another one for a gift for someone else."

BAM, success... she didn't think twice and was extremely polite.

I'm always around, just work get's in the way some times. Then other times I just need a few days off from everything. Then that other project I was telling you about as well, which is coming along nicely.

Popular one for the new years party was vodka infused with skittle and then the lemon-lime mix from the soda maker.

I like it b/c I can make just what I'm going to drink. I don't drink a lot of soda anyways. So it's nice to make 1 or 2 drinks at a time and not worry about the rest going flat over the next week.

Does anyone know what the highest value coupon or highest total value of coupons you can put into a walmart self checkout before it needs approval? My regional grocery is now dinging me all the time and they've told their cashiers in the regular lines to be very careful of coupons with "ridiculous amounts", says my source on the inside. So I'm going to start making the commute to wally world, I suppose.

I still go through the line when I hit the post-dinner rush or I'm buying a ton of stuff, but sometimes it's nice to just breeze through a self checkout.

Not sure about Walmart, but I know a bit about Target. SOME employees are told to call the manager over if the savings exceed $100 because "something probably went wrong: a shit ton of coupons is a flag." That being said, on my last trip to Target, I saved over $190 and no manager got called over. The lady who checked me out was really nice. Her mind = blown. She was commenting on how ridiculous it was. I have a line to explain it, but I'd prefer not to share. Keep it up guys! I'm heading out now, trying out a few HC coupons. I'll report back in a few hours!

Bad news -the RED BULL was rejected. Screen said something about calling manufacturer. It was at a Tar not in my state and the first time I have had problem with red bull coupon. They are on sale and you get a free red bull 4gb flash drive when you by 2. Gonna try the bullseye in home state asap. Gonna return the 2 I paid full price on.

Anyone else have red bull issues?

The coupon information corporation is out there trying to inform stores about the fake coupons.  Once a store finds out about one they can add it to their computer to know its fake.  Here is a list of some of the known fake coupons, (CLEARWEB) http://www.couponinformationcenter.com/psa-list.php

Here is their bit about lucas henderson who made the first fakes and got caught by the FBI , (also clearweb)  http://www.couponinformationcenter.com/Coupon_Guy_Arrested.php

No one gives a fuck about the CIC (retailers I mean), that much I am sure of. No store is adding any of that to any database (at least so far). If one of my coupons ever doesn't work based off the CIC, I'll just change all the information contained within it and suddenly it's no longer a CIC known coupon. We have been trying to keep up with any reports and making sure we don't have known fakes out there. If the day ever comes that I am not always ahead of the game, then that will be the day I retire, take down my listings, and move on with my life to the next thing.

As far as the redbull coupon, I've seen that before at a Target (not with my coupons), and I think it has to do with the local store. We will have to hang tight and see if it was just a rogue occurrence, or not, with that coupon. I have only personally seen that happen with tide before (again not my tide) and then that same old tide coupon would work at the same store at a different location. So far none of the coupons I have made have completely ceased to work at a particular location, so if Target suddenly had a coupon I made that wasn't working at all there anymore, then that would be a first for me and of course it would get yanked and remade real quick, probably would change the brand to a similar product though.

As far as the Android app, they don't have one like CouponDecoder that will break down all the information for you, but they do have plenty free scanners which will just show you the digits contained in the databar, the CouponDecoder just tells you what those digits means in terms of a coupon.

Does anyone second the $5 off Phillys change?

Yes, be safe... and for you that means not returning to that store, I guess you probably got that though. I guess I just want to hear more about this story, so I can form an opinion of what happened. With the original collection, only once in my experience have I actually had one of those coupons turned away, and it was by this manager who kept talking and talking and apologizing to me until I had to stop him and say "look there are people behind me, are you going to accept the rest of these coupons or not?" He told the cashier to accept the rest of them, and that was that.

The Red Bull thing at Target happened to me with the Glad trash bags, that was addressed in the old thread. Basically it's nothing. Not only did the cashier override the coupon but PL quickly responded and fixed the coupon. Sure, I had a cool cashier, but as for the integrity of the coupon there's no worries. Like PL said it must be something isolated because I've been cleaning up on Red Bull at my local Target. That sucks if that particular coupon doesn't work for you at that store, but I'm sure it's not dead as I used it yesterday. Try it at WM or KM and it should be fine.

Also, and it's certainly not that I don't believe everyone, but I usually wait until I get a second report before I take action. Such as the case with the Glad trashbag coupon which apparently I just mistakenly choose to make that coupon for the exact same item and amount as a highly distributed fake on the clearnet. It still worked for the majority of us, but after a few reports with the same issue, I just changed it up and so far I haven't heard any problems.

Go somewhere else with that Bull Shit!

Did they accept the coupons? Did they turn you away? How do you know they were LP? How high were you? So they let you use the coupons and then after you defrauded them of X amount of $ they decided to get your license plate? Seriously!?! IF you even expect anyone to take you seriously you best have more than that offering. Even then it'll be easy to weed you out as a punk.  If you have something constructive to say we all want to hear it, if not fuck off.

PL let me go ahead and say YOU ARE THE MOTHER FUCKING MAN!  I am so glad to see the newest addition to the HC collection.  I will do my best to go test it out tomorrow before work so long as I wake up with time to hit the store.  If it works you are about to save me a ton of money!  Is this one that you would suggest only using once per store?

Also I found some of the best glossy paper I've ever used.  A buddy suggested I check out Red River Paper.  I picked up a 100 pack of 8.5x11" 68LB UltaPro Gloss for around $40 after shipping.  It is a little pricey, but I only plan on using it on some of the tougher HC coupons.  I ordered it last Friday and it came in today.  Printed out just full page coupon, along with a hologram sticker and I have no doubt it will be easy to pass.  The paper has no watermarks on either side and is fairly heavy.  When cut evenly with a paper slicer and a hologram is used I have no doubt it will fool even the best cashier and manager.  ***CLEARNET*** http://www.redrivercatalog.com/browse/68lb-ultrapro-gloss.html

Also here is another huge list of various suggestions, I sent you a PM also but figured I would post here for discussion.

***I would love to see a juicer for the HC collection.
***RainX Windshield Wipers, the most expensive kind, I can't remember the type but they are like $15 or $20 for an 18" blade.  They work amazing and last quite a while!
This one is a long shot, but I figured its worth a shot.  A gun safe, no specifics just but preferably a fireproof one.
Sentry fireproof safes.  Again no specifics, maybe you could do like a $25 or $50 off any Sentry safe?  I haven't bought one in a few years so no idea how much they go for.  I think I paid $15 for a little sheet metal one that you could smash and open.  And I think I paid like $50 for my small fireproof one.
Xbox 360
Xbox 360 Controller
External Hard Drive
***16GB or 32GB Flash Drive - I need to pick up 15 of these suckers for a project.
Glossy Photo Paper & Cardstock
A HC coupon for a dremel, I already have one but imagine this would be a good one for others.
A generic coupon for dremel bits
I am not sure if it would be possible, but what about apple care+ warranties, Walmart sells them for iphones, ipods, and ipads.  They range from like $50-$200 for each device.  I honestly have no clue if this would work, or not.  After you add the apple care+ to your product I am not sure if Apple can take it off if the store reports it?
***Light bulbs - LED preferably
Would it be possible to create a generic coupon for DVDs, such as $15 off any Disney DVD or Bluray?
***Board Games - Maybe a generic one for different brands?  milton bradley, Disney Game, Hasbro, Jakks Pacific, Mattel, Nickelodeon, etc...
Spray Paint - Maybe Buy 2 cans save $5?
Duct Tape
Dyson Vacuum

Where can I get a hologram sticker like you did to make my coupons look more legit? Thanks!

I went to a new bullseye to try and get  few more beats ear buds that I saw after using regular coupons yesterday.  The coupons were turn down after i pressed the manager to try the other barcodes as that is what worked in the past.  She said she would have to call to check and it would take some time.  I declined and said I would return. As I was walking away the original cashier walked by with uniformed loss prevention, but they didn't follow me out of the store.  Once I was out of the store and 1 car away from my car loss prevention passed by on golfcart, and wrote down my plate number.

I think I just happen to go to a target that someone got to before I did.

There is a vendor with a listing for the holos on SR, you can find it here: http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/item/375c3c2901
or you can search on the clearnet for some as well. They really do make a world of a difference.

I would never return there and don't sweat it. I personally would have gotten out of my car with a pistol and asked them wtf they were doing writing down my license plate... but that's just how I roll.

Also, don't get too greedy, you got 3 beats headsets the other day, you only got two ears... try out some of the other HC gems.

Not sure if you meant "new" as new to you, or "new" as in a brand new store, but let me tell you... nothing in the world is better to use these coupons at than a brand new store. None of the employees, managers, etc are trained at all and will just about believe anything for the first year that store is open. I've done some crazy ass shit at a brand new store.

fakeplastic on SR also sells VISA holograms, but I think he is on vacation. I have 20 small visa holos and 20 large ones and have not officially decided how I will use them. Maybe make a brand new VISA full page ad with a new angle, print them on high quality paper, make them for the $100 gift cards, and slap some holos on them and snailmail them out to people in a new listing. idk

Has anybody gotten the Kindle Fire to work and if so where? Kmart doesn't carry the HD, Radio Shack doesn't accept manufacturer/free coupons and 2 different Staples were a no-go (apparently they don't mail their coupons to clearinghouses, having some different system).

Also tried the iPod touch coupon at Target but it didn't scan. That was a disappointment.

I hit up all the CVSs in my area and got 2 $50 Visas and like 4 iTunes $25 gift cards. Also a GoPhone card. Most CVS's seem to have instruction to not give discounts on GCs, and one even had a printout of an iTunes coupon that looked just like ours.

Yes a few have, I forgot the exact details, but my collection has been turned 100% verified now (minus that iPod coupon I accidentally made for a discontinued model. I was just going off an iPod I found)

PRO HC TIP: By design... RCA HDTV at KMart. I did that coupon on purpose because K-Mart is so easy to pass HC coupons and exclusively sell RCA tvs, a couple people have caught on already, which made me proud, but I figured I'd throw that thought out there.

Why am I not doing it now? I already worked 12 hours today, I can barely fuck around on the forum. Yes, it shouldn't take me a ton of time to do, so I would think as soon as I have some refreshed free time, I'll knock it out.

You best be rolling with a ghat if you've got Dre's beats and some a-hole roles up in a Golf Cart?! lol. I think you're good bro but like PL said, don't go back and maybe lay off the beats.

@PL I think that's a genius idea you have there w/ the new angle, inc. in value, along w/ the holos! If I had a 3/3 day with those I'd be so relieved of $$ right now. But on SR I have PLenty  (probly why there isn't enough now outside here LOL) to get in on these if you go through with it. Keep up the good work bro!

Yes!  I would love a Taco Bell coupon.  I am obsessed with those Doritos Tacos.  A coupon for Starbucks would be amazing, but their employees are usually pretty well trained, I doubt they would scan a coupon they hadn't heard of.  Do you know if you buy a Starbucks card at a Walgreens or CVS?

Yes, reports show they can be picked up at Target.

Kohl's is a great place to use coupons. They see so many coupons every day, they dont even think twice about it. They also have tons of different household products including the sodastream. Still waiting on a coupon for the ninja blender ;)

Also, I think Legal Sea Foods might be a good brand to coupon. They sell bags of frozen shrimp at BJ's and shit. All coupons work at BJ's.

Yeah they work on self check outs. I believe if your total savings is over $20 or the individual coupon is over $10, the system will prompt for the attendant to approve it but that doesn't mean they won't be accepted.

So I just got shut down on small order at Walmart using the OG collection. I had about $60 worth of items, 14 items total, and had coupons for 11 of them totaling $42.25 in savings. The amount don't even matter because she never even tried scanning the coupons! She scanned everything and then I handed her the coupons and she quickly fanned through them and said "I'm not sure if I can take these, hold on." She walked over to the corner and talked to someone and came back saying she can't accept them. I had both my kids with me so I didn't really want to cause a commotion. I just said "Really, why not?" She kept saying "Sorry, I can't" even after asking her another time. After that I just grabbed the coupons and told her I'm not buying anything here and I'll take my money and coupons somewhere they are welcome. This is the same store I had issues with the Roku XD coupon before Christmas. It's also the same store I used $50 worth of coupons at last night. I'm not sure what the problem is and had I not had my kids I would have challenged her to scan them and remind her of their policy on coupons.  What this means for me is nothing much. Fuck that store, it's dead to me. I still have been having 100% success at the local Targets and Kmarts. I'm still a bit confused as to why they were shut down on sight, but there's too many places they work with no issues for me to give a shit. I just wanted to let everyone know what happened.

And NO, there were no employees following me out of the store, I was kind of hoping for it. As much as I didn't want my kids to see a confrontation I gladly would have tucked them into the car and had it out with anyone trying to "get my plate" as others have said is happening. No sweat though, fuck Wally. Looks like the bullseye is there for a reason ;D

As far as my methods for personal use go in comparison to this story. I never hit the same store two days in a row for any reason. I run a rotation that generally has be going to the same store twice a month for any reason. I shop about once a week.

HAHA, yeah I always prefer Target over Walmart... Walmart is changing their coupon policy faster than I change threads at this point.

Post by: robotrippin on January 05, 2013, 08:43 pm
Ya, I usually try to space it out better also. It was an odd circumstance though. My kid bought an $85 Lego(of all things) last night there and opened it this morning and it was completely fucked up. So he was all bummed, as you'd expect, and we went right back to the same store to return it. Possibly being a bit greedy I decided to try to pick up a few more things while I was there and again fuck this store since they had caused my son's grief. Didn't work as planned, lol.
I  try to keep to strict schedule of 2-3 days between trips and rotate between stores each time also. Like you said, it ensures that I'm never at the same place often enough to get picked out. I'm in a pretty big metro so there's a bunch of shit around here. It was just carelessness and greed on my part. No worries though, I'll be right back at it Monday. I just wanted to share it, if it even helps one person it was worth the time. 

Target is definitely the place to go, I feel much more comfortable there. It's almost like they welcome the shit ;D

I have found little luck @ Walmart in the past and have always had the same responses that you received. "We can't take this"...same response even after I pulled out the coupon policy and had it highlighted where it clearly stated otherwise. You'd think as the world's third largest public company and the only retail outlet store chain making more revenue than many oil companies, they would let a few bucks go... no big deal. Tarjay has been super lenient w/ me. Their CP states that they can't accept a coupon worth 75% or more off original price of item but I've been to 5 and every CSM overwrote it regardless. They are awesome there.

Ya, I should have known better. I hate WM and especially this particular store. It's in a location that lends itself to huge crowds and it's seriously understaffed.  The type of people here are also, well without being too ignorant, uncivilized. I think that makes this store a bit more strict/aware when it comes to any kind of discount, as people are constantly trying to scam this store, not just with coupons. 

It's good to hear about people having similar experiences though. Not that I ever lost any confidence in this, but it's nice to get everyone's feedback on this.  This is what makes PL and this thread so great. Everyone here is like-minded and we all are looking to ensure each others success.  I really appreciate everyone's contributions to this and hopefully together we can make this last for a long time.

Just went to Target trying out these coupons for the first time so I started out small, but the coupons for the Cottenelle wipes refill and tub, Colgate toothpaste, and Keurig K-cup ones all worked fine. She just scanned them didn't say anything and I paid. That was it. Couldn't have worked any better. Next time I'll try a little bigger but I still think it's probably wise to not go too big so as to not draw too much attention to yourself or the coupons in general. Just my two cents. I'm excited though!

Not saying you can't go big, there are plenty here who have and still do, but if you stay small it's virtually guaranteed.  It seems pretty established that somewhere around $60 and under in savings is usually smooth as silk.  But there's nothing like going in and coming out with $200 of merchandise and only paying for 10% or so it. Actually it's quite a good feeling no matter how big or small you go.  :D

Enjoy and stay smart and safe.

Ya, I should have known better. I hate WM and especially this particular store. It's in a location that lends itself to huge crowds and it's seriously understaffed.  The type of people here are also, well without being too ignorant, uncivilized. I think that makes this store a bit more strict/aware when it comes to any kind of discount, as people are constantly trying to scam this store, not just with coupons. 

It's good to hear about people having similar experiences though. Not that I ever lost any confidence in this, but it's nice to get everyone's feedback on this.  This is what makes PL and this thread so great. Everyone here is like-minded and we all are looking to ensure each others success.  I really appreciate everyone's contributions to this and hopefully together we can make this last for a long time.

Well said my friend.  8) I'd +1 you if I could...sometime soon! :)

There is so much shit regarding the WM corporation that there are multiple books on it. There have been thousands of lawsuits against them for low employee wages, no health insurance (until recently which is now ridicously low), foreign relations and treatment of workers, poor work conditions, ANYTHING bad a store can do there have been lawsuits against them that are legitimate claims, yet somehow, the big WM gets it taken care of. They had their "Buy America" campaign...yet they import over 60% of their products from China, along w/ soo many other countries. I could go on forever...but if you do a clearnet search for "Criticism of walmart" or walmart in general you will probably become just as red as I did.  >:(

Basically, after I read so much on WM (initially I simply wanted to see their employee benefits), I can't really be upset anymore with any of the employees in regards to being turned down or my coups. not being accepted.  I realized that they are trying to survive and not get fired by this corrupt corporation, which I discovered after more reading off of "walmart sucks dot org", it extends down to the managers.  It's honestly a "big-brother" for the employees there. 70% "quit" within first year.

*I don't want to get someone fired who is just trying to put food on the table for their family and I can guarantee most of the employees (besides the A-hole Managers) do not want to be working there...there's just no other options in this economy especially with WM putting smaller, local retailers out of business. Ex. They put thousands of Kraft workers out of a job (search it on clearnet). * I HATE WM Corporation even more and wish I could bombard the shit out of them with HC coupons  if it weren't for the employees' jobs at stake (btw WM is anti-union). So, to wrap up this vent LOL..I can understand why so many people would want to scam them (not solely coupons) bc they are the biggest scam on so many levels.

Sorry that was so long...I felt I needed to make people aware of this. LONG LIVE SR AND PL's COLLECTION(S)!   :)

I hate the people at Walmart.  They would stab you to get in front of you in line.

I saw a woman at Walmart with a friend and she looked like she was 10 months pregnant, I thought she was going to go into labor right then and there.  She was having a hard time walking, you know waddling slowly and stuff.  Well I couldn't believe all the people who pushed by her and almost knocked her over. Some jerk hit her with his cart! 

They do the same to old people and people with babies too!!!  Evil fucks.  Don't knock Grandma and little Susie over!  One just learned how to walk and talk the other one has almost completly forgotten how to do both.  Is it really that urgent that you must buy THE Fucking Forman Grill and the tacky Jaclyn Smith Collection pantsuit in cart RIGHTNOW!!!!

Fucking assholes!  That never happens at Target.  Fuck Walmart.  Damn I am angry.

Yea not only do I encounter people who work there to not give two shits about the customers...but the people who like to "hang out there" haven't been "humane" so to speak. I live in one of the nicer towns of my county and that's probably the reason we don't have a walmart but they just put a target in the only area where land was available and it took 6 years for it to pass through city council. There's a reason the nearest WM is in the ghetto towns of my county and it better F'ing stay that way!!

@KitKat you should check this out (clearnet or tor is fine) but it's "walmart sucks dot org" w/o the spaces and it has all these stories that are similar to what you mentioned. And for a laugh there's always "people of walmart dot com" on the clearnet LOL. I had to look @ that website after my fury on WM.

Anyone been using the HC collection lately?  Which ones from that collection are burnt?

MacMan, if you are having problems getting them to scan, then check them with a smart phone app, because they all scan for sure, so it might be a printing issue.

And sorry if I left a few old ones in the zip files when updating them, Sounds like I put all the new ones in but made a couple duplicates with old ones too? Not sure but I will monitor all the files very closely and remove anything I may have overlooked, thanks for the heads up guys.

man, i've now joined the club.  Ever since I made my first purchase using coupons i've been kicking myself for not buying the collections sooner.

I raped my local stores for gift cards today.  Quick question.  Has anyone heard of the gift cards being deactivated?  I'm just wondering if I need to worry about them catching on and somehow deactivating the gift cards.  So if I need to use them ASAP I just want to make sure that I do.

Also used the $75 off of Sony Blu Ray Player coupon at Kmart today.  So I got a Blu Ray for $12.09
Used the $60 off of the Nikon S30 Digital Camera at Target.  The manager had to approve this one though.  He said because of the amount and that coupons of that amount are highly unusual.  He kept staring at it, holding it up to the light, but ultimately approved it and I walked out the store with the digital camera for $37 and some change. 

A coupon for Newport cigarettes would be great also.  I see you got the Marlboro smokers covered (the Marlboro coupon works great btw, my mother used it at Wal Mart yesterday)

@inthedaytime: There was talk on the old thread (which I read almost all of) about GCs potentiallygetting deactivated. I suggest you figure out how to spend or cash out on them fast.

Gift cards coming out my wazoo, I'm really itchy to try and use them to pay the difference on some higher end items (like the blue-ray, nice tip on Kmart) which i can then sell for cash.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 06, 2013, 09:35 am
Only gift card I've heard word of being deactivated was the VISA GCs, so I always suggested, even before such a report was made to spend those bitches as fast as you can. I always used them to fill up on gas or go do other shopping.

That being said, I have received no other reports of deactivation, and even gave my nephew a 12 month subscription to XBOX live gold for Christmas and so far he has been having a blast, I even get sent pictures of him playing with it.

My bad bro, i actually shoulda been more specific.  The thing was a couple coupons i used before and had success with only a couple days ago, i couldnt get them to scan and not because there was anything wrong with the coupons.  When WM doesnt take the coupon it will bring up a message saying that it cant be accepted.  So yeah idk what the deal was. It was either that specific scanner or the way im printing them out.

When you guys print them do you adjust the size or make them bigger or anything like that?

@Purplelotus Whats your method of printing them out?

Also one more Question. I saw some talk about using holigram paper or something like that to make them look even more authentic.  I read some more about it on the CIC website. 
Has anyone had a chance to do this?

Post by: 420blindman on January 06, 2013, 01:07 pm
When I print out coupons, it's always in color and I use medium to high grade paper. There used to be a coupon for free paper somewhere in the link, along with ink. I try to print in different sizes, so when I check out, I don't appear that they all came from the same place. I usually make small talk with the cashier, and if they ask about the coupons, I just tell them that my wife/gf/mom prints/clips from newspapers and I'm simple sent to pick them up. If they start to give me a hard time, I act like I'm going to be in big trouble if I come home empty handed.  If it goes further, I'll start to mention their coupon policy. I've only been turned away twice with the Original coupons, and I've been a client of Purple Lotus since last summer. Saved thousands to date, still going. Both times I was turned down, I went back to that same store 2-3 days later and had no problems.

  LOL.  Yeah, I used to live in a nice neighborhood and we had a WalMart, the people who went there were all yuppies and teenagers with nicer cars and jewelry than I have.  They were obnoxious, but at least they didn't try to kill people with shopping carts.  It is probably because not that many people shopped there, so there was no race to the checkout.
 
  Now I live in the seventh circle of HELL, and Target is like 90 minutes away. Walmart is full of people who are so angry and agressive that I refuse to go there.  I can't blame them entirely, going to WalMart makes me homicidal too.  I pretty much would rather die of starvation than shop there.  Don't even get me started about how horrible they are to their employees.  They almost never promote from within, they hire managers from the outside...etc

I need therapy for my anger towards WalMart.

 First off I'm glad I got both collections & since i use alot of online coupons anyway, noone really looked at me weird when I saved $80 using mostly coupons from you(i brought in 5 sunday paper coupons to blend in) at my local grocery chain....I used some of the HC coupons last night got 3/$25 visas at smaller places where i knew a manager didnt have to turn key for manufacturers coupons, nice...Then I got a little bolder & went to CVS(where i'm a friendly face) to try the 50 Visa & was turned down because they said there was a memo out saying that these were known to be fake, manager asked how i ran into it & i told them i did surveys on a few product consumer sites & got an email with it from one of the survey sites...no biggie since they know me and didn't think I was up to no good, but they started explaining how scammers set up fake survey sites to get your info for identity theft & gave me a cvs gift card for $20 off my next store purchase for my inconvience (i think mostly cuz I had my kids with me), how funny is that!!! I read on the forum that cvs was were people were being sent to to cash in HC coupons...trying to give the heads up, here in the dirty south cvs may be burnt out...If i run into a cvs where the management looks a little doofy, being the hardcore grifter i am, I may try again:)

@livingdeadgirl: Yes, we have become aware that in certain areas there have been emails sent out specifically about the VISA full page ads. To my knowledge and anyone else's it is only the VISA coupon which has been mass emailed out, and with good reason I suppose because when I first dropped that coupon we raped the fuck out of it across the country. We earned the title "Hardcore" for that collection.

This is where I want to point out that the HC collection is vastly different than the Original Collection in terms of success. Sometimes I feel like we get more people reporting issues with getting HC coupons to scan than we do anything else, and I don't want that to deter people who might be interested in the original collection.

@spearwarrior: Didn't we have this conversation? Do you just really love my watermarks on the beats coupon or something? If you want I can do more like that, I got it down now. And if someone beat you to the RCA coupon at Kmart, thats a damn shame! I need to go out to the KMart in the next town over and give it a shot, I really think K-Mart is HC gold as long as you don't pick the 70+ year old cashier.

I tried the Gillette $10 off 4ct Pack of Gillette Fusion Pro-Glide Razor Cartridges at my local chain grocery store (not nationwide chain but regional chain) and tried the coupon but it came up coupon not recognized. The manager came over and he ended up giving me the discount anyway but this was the first coupon I had that didn't end up working. I'm not 6 for 7 with coupons so far but I wonder why the Gillette 4 pack of razor cartridges didn't work. I might try the coupon at a larger chain store like Target and see if it works out but anyone have any trouble with this? It is found in collection "Coupon2." THanks.

Post by: purplelotus on January 06, 2013, 09:01 pm
@oblonsky: I would double check that the first 5 digit set on the UPC of the product match the first 5 digits on the coupon, but for that item I'm extrremely confident they will always match, so I would suggest trying a different store as it could be possible that at a locaol or regional chain they will have a policy or function in their system that will just deny a coupon worth over $X. I have a local store that the policy is nothing over $4 without a managers approval, but still I have great shopping trips there using every coupon I can $4 and below.

I think a big reason why there's more posts in this thread about HC collection is mostly a testament to how good your OG collection is. You can only post of success with it so many times before it becomes mundane, no matter how fun it is IRL.  Hell, I love hearing stories about first timers so I could imagine how you feel about it. But that's been wrote about so many times it's not something everyone posts about. I wouldn't consider that a bad thing. Although I do see that the OG pack is your main focus right now, and for good reason, so I understand why you would like to see the thread remain more about that. I hope it does too, another thread reset would be a bitch.

A good idea I think for the HC would be 'buy one get one free' for gift cards.. especially gas. I love me some gas. But these would be a lot more legit looking than simply 'free', and I'd use the shit out of them.

Went to the second CVS today that had your free itunes coupon posted up. This time they went to go get the manager, and I left. Once I saw the poster, I knew it wasn't worth the rigamarole. I don't know if other areas are having this happen or if it's just a couple individual stores in my area, but maybe with the next update you should change the format or size or something.

Just got in from shopping.  Not as successful on this second run with the HC collections as I was yesterday.  Did manage to get another $100 worth of gift Cards out of CVS though.  Which makes my grand total from Rite Aid a little over $600 in gift cards.  I'm going to leave them alone now though after hearing from 3 different managers that there has been a memo put out about coupons or gift cards.  The last one was kind of nasty with me and wanted to keep the coupon. 

Tried the HC coupon for the free COD Black Ops 2 game at Toys R Us today.  It would not scan.  it's a shame it didn't because they would have given it to me.  Manager said that I may have to pay the sales tax though.  She could not get it to scan for the world though.  I tried scanning it with the android app on my phone and it picks up the number just fine, just doesn't find any product for it.  So I don't think it was a printing issue.

My biggest problem with the gift cards is going to a store and them not having the card I have coupons for.  Other than that they all scan just fine.  It just comes down to whether or not the manager is on top of their game and denies it.  Most are NOT.   

a couple of notes though on GC coupons
-  the Subway card I have not been able to find in a $10 increment, only $15
- The $50 Shell gas card is the BEST
-  The Itunes GC coupon never draws any type of suspicion

Other than that not much to add.  Kind of low on cash right now or I would have tried more HC coupons.  So I've just been sticking to the completely free ones, and have been having great success  Would have tried the Kindle Fire HD coupon today, but forgot it at home DURR 

I LOVE this collection.  PL you are my man, 50 grand!  Looking forward to updates!

I've printed so many damn coupons that my printer is low on ink now.  No worries though.  I'll be using the HP Ink coupon to get some more soon.  lol

So I keep reading all of these posts about people going out and trying to score hundreds of dollars worth of discounts and sometimes being successful, other times not, but I'm hesitant to buy the HC collection because it seems like a lot of people have gone hog wild and possibly have drawn a lot of suspicion to these coupons. Not to bemoan those who are deciding to go all out, but it just seems to me that going on huge extravaganzas like that all in the same day all in the same store is going to mean this coupon rigging ruse is going to be exposed awfully quick, even affecting those of us attempting to make modest purchases using the OC collection. I don't mean to sound bitter or necessarily discourage those from trying to push the envelope, but I would love to see this "scam" keep going on for years and years and the more people extravagantly exploit the system, it seems the quicker the stores will catch on and tighten their coupon policies. I'm just sayin'.

The idea behind hitting a bunch of stores in the same day is to hit them before they realize it's a fake and notify other stores in the region. Particularly for the high profile ones.

You can try to act like a team player all you want on here but the truth is there are probably at least 10 people lurking for every one person posting and you can bet most people are going to act out of their own self interest.

It's a relatively simple exercise in game theory. Your gain, or someone else's gain, does not necessarily equate to my loss when you "fly under the radar" and use the coupons reasonably without raising alarm, but if you or I or anyone then begins going hog wild then that person's gains does necessarily equal my and everyone else's loss. Obviously, even if certain rules were established about how it is most ideal to use these coupons without bringing attention and therefore suspicion to this coupon rigging scheme, people would break those rules and ultimately everyone else will be worse off, including the person exploiting the system most aggressievly. Ideally, if you could get everyone to follow the rules by limiting extravagant purchases and therefore causing no attention to be drawn to the use of the coupons, in the long run everyone will be better off. That is, even the person who would otherwise run the table on $1000 worth of stuff in a day would receive a higher long-run payoff by using more discretion and not causing any suspicion being drawn to the coupon use. Of course, people will break the rules and in that case that individual will indeed achieve a higher payoff at the expense of others because ultimately knowledge of the scam will be so widespread that the game will be over and coupon policies will tighten across the board. Basically, in would be in everyone's best interest to preserve the integrity of this scam for the long run, but because people are unlikely to do that then yes it is rational for people to seek the highest payoff in the shortest period of time, virtually guaranteeing that the coupon ruse will be discovered and eventually shut down.

Post by: oblonsky on January 07, 2013, 03:15 am
You're right. Since so many people now have the coupons it's smartest to just go and buy as much as you can and/or move up future purchases up to the present to take advantage of the coupons. I only have the OC collection and I've only had one not scan but it was at a regional chain and the manager gave me the discount anyway and it ended up scanning at CVS later that day. I wish there was a hack to get huge discounts on airline fares like $700 off a roundtrip international flight or something. I'd be all over that. I see the Southwest giftcard coupon and that looks interesting too. Also, a $30,000 off a Porsche 911 Turbo coupon would be pretty sweet too.

No such list exists, as 100% of them have now been confirmed to work, minus the iPod coupon, but that's only because they discontinued that model... otherwise the collection is perfect and works if you work them, obviously many issues can get in your way and they won't all work at every store for sure even in the best of circumstances, but they all have worked. Ask about any item and I bet someone will say "Yeah, I got one of those". I've checked them all off the list of "firsts!" That's one of the things I'm most excited about with these additions, I will now get more "firsts" which I love.

@inthedaytimewitha: Keep going hard, brother! That's what we came for and that's what you paid for.

P.S. to oblonsky: I did in fact find a way to make coupons for a new car... if you pick up one of those GAS cards, then you can come ride with me.

Post by: zeke on January 07, 2013, 04:55 am
Yesterday was another successful day for me.  The biggest success was at a K-Mart that I had never been to before, and didn't even plan on stopping at first but had some time to kill so stopped in.  Only coupon I had on me at the time was the $100 foodsaver coupon printed on the Red River Glossy Photo Paper I talked about a few pages back.  I cut it out meticulously with my paper slicer, and it had some of the most straight edges I've achieved thus far.  I then had a new hologram sticker that I hadn't used yet, its an all black rectangle with multiple words on it "Valid, Authentic, Certified, Original, Genuine, etc..."  Everything was lined up 100% perfectly.  Went in and planned on getting another of the bigger model ones that go for $150 or so.  Unfortunately they only had a smaller model for $89.99.  I figured it was worth a shot with how good the coupon looked. 

Then I picked my target, a heavy set college girl that looked like she could use a compliment to boost her spirit up.  Threw out my story of how great my last foodsaver worked and I purchased TONs of bags from the foodsaver website to vacuum seal all of my bulk meat.  I went on to explain how distraught I was when I purchase my last large quantity of bulk meat and on the first bag the heat sealer quit working.  I then called foodsaver and since my model was discountinued they couldn't replace it so that gave me the $100 off coupon.  She was amazed by the story, but the coupon wouldn't scan so she had to call her manager over.  She then explained the same story to her manager who scanned it with the handheld scanner.  It said to enter the amount, and she entered $100.00 and walked away.  As soon as I saw her type $100.00 I threw one last compliment out to her, and about the same time the screen said $-2.81.  At first I figured it was going to give her problems as it has in the past when my total was negative and they wouldn't allow the transaction to go through.  But this cashier GAVE me $2.81 plus the FoodSaver!  Hahaha I have never walked out of a store feeling like such a fucking hero, and I credit it all to my bulk meat

Other than that I also got 3 SodaStreams, plus probably every single flavor they have.

I then finished off the day and stocked up on cleaning supplies.  6 Bottles of Lysol, 6 Tubs of Clorox Wipes, and x4 6 Pack of Bounty Paper Towels my total was less than $15.  I did have trouble with the ziplock coupon it wouldn't scan.

Post by: purplelotus on January 07, 2013, 05:00 am
@zeke: you are my hero... mother fucking got paid to accept a free Foodsaver machine!

Also the ziplock coupon works fine for me, and I use it regularly at multiple locations.  That's one kick ass story, but damn what does a dude need so much soda for?
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: zeke on January 07, 2013, 05:17 am
Yeah I have no doubt the ziplock works, I ran out of regular paper and only had cardstock and it kinda smeared so I am betting thats why.

I am giving 2 of them out as gifts, and keeping the other one for a project.  I am not a big fan of soda, but I do love carbonated water and koolaid.  Plus I do a lot of volunteer work with children so any sort of new activity helps!

I'm back to report on what i've used so far.
Worked:
Starbucks frappuccino
dr. scholls
lays
coffee mate

Didn't work:
Kindle Fire
Xbox live 12 month

I went to 3 staples, 1 office depot, and 1 best buy with the amazon kindle coupon, and it didn't work at any of them. Staples flat out rejected it, and they said the coupon wouldn't go through in their system at best buy and office depot. I guess they probably also figured amazon would send me a kindle if i won a free one. I only tried the xbox live 12 month thing at walmart, and the lady immediately knew it was fake. she said they got tons of those around christmas. I just pretended someone scammed me into doing surveys and signing up for stuff to get the coupon. Do that many people already have the HC collection? or do you all live in GA? I definitely printed them right, cause i could scan them and the info was correct.

My requests for the HC update would be Wii U coupon, and a coupon for all nintendo games for the wii u(you should disguise it as a nintendo club give away. Seems pretty convincing to me). Thanks! I'll have to try the xbox live 12 month at like a kmart or target like you guys are saying.

Hey there, PL.  Has anyone requested a coupon for beef jerky?  With festival season a few months a way, it would be nice to stock up without breaking the bank.  Those Mountainhouse just add boiling water meals are pretty fantastic as well.  Three or four bucks off each of those would be amazing!

Love the juicer coupon!  Think I might have to go for a few more from the HC edition one of these days.  The food saver has been looking awfully tempting as well...

I haven't tried it, but have you checked to make sure that the numbers on the coupon UPC match the card you're getting? There's a few Visa cards with different numbers.

It's time for me to get new vitamins, I usually always get this 44pack of Animal Pack vitamins. They are usually found at vitamin stores and stuff, anyway you could make a coupon for those? They cost something like 35-45. I would think vitamin stores would be lenient about coupons also, just my hunch feeling.

Ooooo yes, I second a coupon for beef jerky.
Jack Link's is so damn expensive, almost 6 bucks for a few pieces of jerky. I believe their manufacturer code is 17082.

Yay for coupons!!

On another note, when you guys go through the self-checkout, do you scan the databar or the older barcode. I find at Walmart at least, when I do the self checkout and scan the databar, it just takes the amount off and doesn't even prompt me to put the coupon in the little slot (I do anyway just to not arouse suspicion), but when I scan the old barcode, it always prompts for cashier assistance, so now, I just cover the old barcode so it doesn't scan it.
Does this happen to anyone else?

     So a few days ago I went to the nicer Walmart in my area. I had with me only the coupons I was going to use, as well as enough cash to pay for everything if I needed to for some weird-ass reason. I had a list of all the items I needed when I realized that I had the PS Vita coupon printed off with me. I thought, "Hey self. Try this bitch out." so I did. I went to the electronics section, asked for a PS Vita, and handed the lady the coupon. She said she'd never seen a discount that large before, and called over the CSM. I waited patiently and smiled whilst making small talk with the cashier. The CSM arrived, looked at the coupon, and was reading the fine print. She said she wasn't sure about it, and told me to wait while she went to the back and talked to management. So I waited. After about three or four minutes, I began to worry. I was fairly certain that I couldn't get in any trouble, because in theory, I could have had no idea it was fraudulent. I began going over scenarios where shit goes bad. The worst part was, I had my significant other with me. I didn't want them involved in any of this. I started to get slightly sick in the stomach. I love this person more than anything in the world and it would kill me if any ill circumstances befell them due to my actions. After a total of around ten minutes, the cashier and the CSM returned. The CSM said that she wasn't comfortable with accepting the voucher for that high of an amount. She mentioned that she didn't know anything about the validity of that coupon. She handed me back the voucher and told me to come back the next day when their Accounting Manager would be there. I said that I'd probably take it to a different store, and thanked her for her time.
     I began my assignment of procuring the items on my list that we needed at home. After about thirty minutes and one full-ass cart, we approached the checkout. The lady who helped us ring up all the items was very nice. We discussed some football, as well as some things about her daughter. After about three minutes the cart was empty. The total on the screen was up there. I thought to myself: "I got this." and handed the cashier a fat stack of coupons  victoriously. There were easily 30 coupons, plus a few from the Sunday paper, as to minimize suspicion. Every single coupon rang up correctly. There wasn't a single coupon that was not verified by the machine. My new total was something to be proud of. The cashier said that she had to call the CSM over to check it off. Then it hit me. I'd saved over $100. I had just shown the CSM a debatable (as well as sizeable) coupon forty minutes before. Shit.
     Now let's stop here for a moment. I am fairly good-looking, I dress professionally, I communicate professionally, and I have an eloquent tongue. I'm an imaginative and intelligent individual. But at this moment in time, I couldn't have felt like more if an idiot.
     The CSM was handed the coupons and said "I've never seen anything like this..." and began to read the fine print of EVERY COUPON. She asked the cashier if the scanner accepted all the coupons, to which she replied "yes."
   As the CSM is reading all of these, I'm loosing my mind. We're back to what had just happened less than an hour before. All of a sudden, she tells the other CSM who had also been called up to "Go get those other ones." Go get those other ones. What the fuck does that mean? I felt like everything was spinning out of control faster than I could grasp the wheel of reality. The CSM who had previously left was now approaching with thin, colored paper in her hand. She handed them to the other CSM who flipped through them and then shook her head from side-to-side. I got a good look at them. They were other fraudulent coupons. They had been printed out at home on colored paper and cut apart. The top one that I saw was 85 cents off a can of beans. I immediately knew they weren't ours. I felt relieved. The CSM explained that they had recently come up short in the register because of those coupons. She said that they didn't want to accept any print-at-home coupons without their Accounting Manager present. I said that's fine, and I left with only a few items in my cart (namely the ones without coupons that I needed.) I also made sure to take back the coupons so they wouldn't have them to check later.
     From this trip, I learned multiple things:

1) DO NOT GET COCKY. Stay below $50 a trip; flying under the radar.

2) If you're after a big ticket item, don't use coupons for anything else in the store if you have to get stuff. This will reduce suspension on the legitimacy of your large coupon.

3) Don't put others at risk because of your actions.

4) Learn from your mistakes; don't make the same one twice.

     Learn from MY mistakes too. Don't do what I did. Now that I've shared my anecdote, let's talk about general good practice advice, as well as (hopefully) answer some questions.

     Coupons that end up in the register are sent to Mexico to be sorted and verified. Are the coupons sorted as to which store they originated? In other words, if I used a coupon and it was sent to Mexico, could it be determined what store it was cashed at? Someone who used fake coupons before me had obviously been discovered, but how? Were the coupons discovered to be fraudulent before the left the store? Or were they discovered sometime after that and then sent to the store to use as examples of what not to accept? That also begs the question as to how far down the line our coupons make it. If they're discovered at a store level, they could be rejected from the store/copied to use as examples of fakes. If they're discovered farther down the chain and they can determine which coupons came from where, then the store could be notified to reject those coupons. If they can't tell where the transaction involving that coupon took place, then we're all much better off. If anyone knows the answer to any of these questions, I'd love to know.

Stay safe guys.

I felt like everything was spinning out of control faster than I could grasp the wheel of reality. The CSM who had previously left was now approaching with thin, colored paper in her hand. She handed them to the other CSM who flipped through them and then shook her head from side-to-side. I got a good look at them. They were other fraudulent coupons. They had been printed out at home on colored paper and cut apart. The top one that I saw was 85 cents off a can of beans. I immediately knew they weren't ours. I felt relieved. The CSM explained that they had recently come up short in the register because of those coupons. She said that they didn't want to accept any print-at-home coupons without their Accounting Manager present. I said that's fine, and I left with only a few items in my cart (namely the ones without coupons that I needed.) I also made sure to take back the coupons so they wouldn't have them to check later.
     From this trip, I learned multiple things:

1) DO NOT GET COCKY. Stay below $50 a trip; flying under the radar.

2) If you're after a big ticket item, don't use coupons for anything else in the store if you have to get stuff. This will reduce suspension on the legitimacy of your large coupon.

3) Don't put others at risk because of your actions.

4) Learn from your mistakes; don't make the same one twice.

     Learn from MY mistakes too. Don't do what I did. Now that I've shared my anecdote, let's talk about general good practice advice, as well as (hopefully) answer some questions.

     Coupons that end up in the register are sent to Mexico to be sorted and verified. Are the coupons sorted as to which store they originated? In other words, if I used a coupon and it was sent to Mexico, could it be determined what store it was cashed at? Someone who used fake coupons before me had obviously been discovered, but how? Were the coupons discovered to be fraudulent before the left the store? Or were they discovered sometime after that and then sent to the store to use as examples of what not to accept? That also begs the question as to how far down the line our coupons make it. If they're discovered at a store level, they could be rejected from the store/copied to use as examples of fakes. If they're discovered farther down the chain and they can determine which coupons came from where, then the store could be notified to reject those coupons. If they can't tell where the transaction involving that coupon took place, then we're all much better off. If anyone knows the answer to any of these questions, I'd love to know.

Stay safe guys.

Wow! Thanks for taking the time to fill us in on your experience. Getting nervous and having mini heart attacks is understandable in situations like that, I know it's happened to me a couple of times! I've had cashiers almost forensically examine the coupons, multiple managers called over, they've asked me to let them keep the coupons, it goes on.. but the worst that has happened in the end is a simple "Sorry, we cannot accept these." When managers have asked me to let them make copies of the coupons, I simply say I'm not comfortable with that or I don't have time because since they won't be accepting them, I am now in a hurry to go buy my groceries at another store. I've had no issues leaving any or all merchandise behind when coupons are rejected. Also, there have been several occasions when I've mixed newspaper coupons in with these coupons, that these scan fine but the newspaper ones give the system all sorts of issues! lol

To address some of your questions...
Yes, some coupons can be verified in store. Most of the ones I've seen from coupons.com have a veri-fi logo, a dot-scan barcode, and a numeric code under the dot-scan barcode which can be typed into their website for instant verification. I imagine however, that this is a rather time consuming task for large stores such as WalMart and Target, so not all stores do this. In the event that this were something a particular store did, that would be the first point in which they could be verified or flagged.

All coupons have the address of a clearinghouse in El Paso or Del Rio where they are sent for processing. The coupons are sorted according to coupon product brand and store redeemed at since each store must still be reimbursed. A total is calculated and sent to the manufacturer, who then writes a check to the stores. So it is possible for the coupon to be detected before leaving the store, but I imagine it is far more likely to happen after being sent out.

And yes we all know the CIC has a database of fraudulent coupons, but being such large and busy stores, they hardly bother with keeping updated with this list- it really is massive! It would take an eternity for a cashier to go through all the coupons on the CIC list and compare to the ones the customer has. We are not the only people using these things, many other people are making, distributing and using them as well. Particularly awesome coupons like the Visa Gift Card ones do get flagged and a memo sent to various stores in the even of a particularly large influx of the same coupon but this really doesn't happen with say, a milk or cereal coupon.

Hope all of this helped and put you at ease some. We all get turned down sometimes. It's mostly no big deal, just take your coupons and walk away.  8)

@dashnsah: The only time I am willing to hit a store twice within less than an hour is when I try to use an HC coupon first and it gets accepted with no problems and no manager. Then I feel pretty good that by the time I get to the front register with all my groceries that no one is any wiser or aware I just used a HC coupon. If the HC coupon gets rejected, then I simply move on, because now you have a CSM roaming around who just saw you try to pull off the HC coupon. I guess this is redundant as it sounds like you learned the hard way by having the worst possible scenario play out.

Good for you for handling it so well! I hope to hear your next report as being a successful one. Yes, safety and common sense most be applied at all times.

Hey guys, I want to begin by saying that these coupons are fucking awesome! haha, hope this can continue for a long time. I believe the Chobani coupon as well as the Sara Lee bread coupon both need to be updated. The UPC's for both have changed (at least in my area) so that they no longer scan. If anyone else could confirm this that would be great. Those are two products I buy pretty frequently so I've noticed the change.

As far as additional coupons I second the beef jerky request. I would also love to see coupons for pure protein bars, Digorno pizza, Guacamole (any national brands?), and Athenos Feta cheese... Just throwing those out there. Keep it up PurpleLotus, you da man ;)

I've had incredible success with these coupons and get better and better with them all the time.  I will agree with the previous mention to stay under $50 (although I'd say $60, since this is the coupon limit at Walmart without CSM approval) for those who are new to couponing.  However, those have been around the block a few times, you can reap high rewards for doing things right. 

For example, I decided I want to stock up on some things so I headed with my stack down to Target.  Filled my cart to the brim with everything I had a coupon for and my total bill before handing my stack over was about $260.  First coupon scanned was for Red Bull which came up as an error on their system so the manager came over and checked it out.  I started worrying at first, hoping they didn't print out wrong or something, but she kept scanning other coupons and down went my total.  Crest mouthwash didn't scan either, so after they took that off and all the Red Bull I had, I ended up owing her just under $40.  My receipt stated that my total savings were about $200.

The manager was extremely friendly about the coupons not working only stating that he believed it just wasn't in their system yet.  As you will see with many others, Target is definitely the favorite to use the coupons at, especially since you can get up to four of the same items with four of the same coupons and can even use store coupons on top of the coupon you have if you really want to get close to zero.  Go to their website and check to see if they have any coupons listed before your trip to increase your savings, which also makes you look more legit by having something other than e-centiives coupons.  As always, be polite, well dressed, and be prepared for any circumstance, good or bad.

These coupons have made my life exponentially more enjoyable and I'm already planning vacations with the money I have saved.  I've been mainly a lurker on this forum for months but felt the need to share my success and attest that PL has better customer service than most corporate stores and always makes time to reply to you as quick as possible.  I've saved $1000+ so far, so stop buying drugs for a second and get these, you'll be able to buy more with the money saved! Going on another run today with a buddy to use as a second shopping cart, and I intend on doubling my previous savings  8)

TL, DR: Target is the shit for these, I've saved tons of money with little trouble elsewhere, buy these now.

I had the cottonelle come up fraudulent a couple weeks ago at a kroger but the girl kept scanning the others and they were fine. I'm glad she didn't decide that the others "wouldn't be accepted" because of one bad apple. But i'm guessing it might work at other stores still. But i was surprised since it was freshly given it's new update. I love this new update too so many new ones :)

Xbox live 12 month

I went to 3 staples, 1 office depot, and 1 best buy with the amazon kindle coupon, and it didn't work at any of them. Staples flat out rejected it, and they said the coupon wouldn't go through in their system at best buy and office depot. I guess they probably also figured amazon would send me a kindle if i won a free one. I only tried the xbox live 12 month thing at walmart, and the lady immediately knew it was fake. she said they got tons of those around christmas. I just pretended someone scammed me into doing surveys and signing up for stuff to get the coupon. Do that many people already have the HC collection? or do you all live in GA?

I'd be happy to help if you still need it. I was successful today with a ps3 at kmart, I ordered those authentic stickers and it worked well. It was printed in color on regular printer paper, definitely not a pro print job at all you could see lines if you looked for just a little, but my story was that like you said before you got one for xmas and for the warranty you filled out a survey and was then mailed this award.

kmart is definitely the place to go, the associates where so nice. I think it has to do with less people go there and that they dont sell food so it makes it less stressful for the employees and thus easier for us to use in our evil evil ways. haha not..about the evil part, well maybe but.

I'll test those dre ones pl if you want. Next on my list is the rca tv.  Ill also be trying the vita tonight at target, the add for the ps3 looks more legit than the vita to me because of the margins on the right side of the vita one are pretty small and make it seem sketchy to me.

Thanks once again.

No problems with Tide or Hanes for me, I just haven't tried the Duracell yet. I'm hoping to give it a go this weekend. If you have any issues with coupons, I'd try using them at a different store. For example, the liquid Tide doesn't work for me at Target but works just fine at WalMart.

Hey guys! me and my friend hit up a bunch of stores, and took your advice of not going to walmart (especially for hc stuff). I still go to walmart for under $50 stuff cause at my walmart you can scan the coupons and put them in the box yourself without anyone's approval which is nice. We went to 1 target, and the vita one just wouldn't scan at all. I think it was just their scanner though, cause the barcode scanner app on my phone worked... went to another target with the xbox live one expecting them to recognize it as a fake again, and it worked... they said they weren't sure if it would work or not, took us to some lady at the customer service counter who scanned the wrong barcode and said it was invalid. I just asked her if she scanned the right one, so she tried the other one and.... it worked.. O_o we kept our poker face until we got to the car, then just both started screaming and laughing for the next like 15 mins. I think we'll give the vita another shot at another target, cause that scanner may have just been malfunctioning. I went to one publix where the cashier congratulated me on my coupon, and told me to come back when they had a buy one get one free deal and use it again ;) love it when you get the nice people. The xbox live one alone almost paid off the amount of the HC and standard collection for me :D Loving the starbucks frappe coupon btw. probably my most used one.

My first HC score was an awesome day. I decided to go on a HC run for the day. Printed out some coupons I wanted to try and then took off. Stopped at Office Depot first and decided to try the free $50 VISA coupon... got some young kid who called a manager and she was older and very sweet. The coupon scanned but the register would not let it go through because it was a free gift card. The lady was so nice and apologetic and really quite obviously gullible so I made a play I normally would not have and I stuck the VISA coupon back in my pocket and said "Oh yeah and I have this other coupon" which was $150 off a WD 2TB External HD... the actual HD was $149.99. I went and grabbed the HD and went back to the same older manager and she scanned it and congratulated me because my total was $0.00. First time I ever got something completely free to the point where I didn't have to reach into my pockets! Immediately ran to Best Buy, returned the HD for store credit since there was a new phone I wanted which cost $150 at Best Buy with a contract upgrade.

Then used the FREE Visa coupon at Best Buy. Success. Went to Target and used the $50 off Skullcrusher over the ear headphones. Then went to K-Mart and used the $150 off Nintendo 3DS, which I gave to my nephew just to see him happy. Let's see I know I'm forgetting something from this spree... it was a good run.

The best part about coupons is all the FREE or HUGE Savings, but a very close second is that rush you get when you pull off some big savings. The rush alone is worth the cost of the listing in my opinion.

Swiffer Refills

Hey kitkat - got a lil Swiffer tip for ya here.......

I do not know if PLs coup for Swiffer is for the pads or the "juice" because im set for life on both.

Here's why.

On ebay they sell "Re-usable" swiffer pads. They are essentially elastic cloth socks that go over the swiffer. When they are dirty, use that Tide coupon and wash them in the machine. They are not "as good" as the real deal Swiffer pads, but save a damn tree or something would ya? ;)


The Swiffer liquid refills AKA "The Juice" - After you have one that is empty (or a few) boil a small pot of water.

Make the water deep enough to be able to fully submerge the white "cap" on the juice.
Boil water.
Submerge white capped head in to boiling water (hold it there) for 5-10 seconds.
Remove immediatly.
IMMEDIATLY (while still hot) use a oven mitt to twist off the cap, like a 2 liter of soda.

**BAM** Profit!

Once you "break the seal" once. You will be able to open and reclose your Swiffer liquid refill anytime.

Needless to say you then buy bulk cleaner, dilute it in to your Swiffer refill...and presto - "free" Swiffer refills for life!

I have about 15 Swiffer liquid refills all refilled and label with something different.

What other coupons can I make that are geared towards vendors? I have a really sweet full page ad for $100.00 of a Ninja blender that's almost complete. You can see my progression with Photoshop, it took me fucking forever to do though.

@subsandaddy: Thanks for stopping by and praising the work, I'm glad you and your family like it.

The brand new $150 off Beats by Dre on ear headset full page ad is now live in the HC collection. Can't wait to see who pulls it off first!

YEAAAAA Buddy!!

Just wanted to add to your question "if you could have only three things from original coupons list what would it be?":
1. KY Jelly
2. Kleenex/or Towelette
3. Resolve Carpet Cleaner
P.S. If I could add one more to that list, it'd have to be the coupon for a pack of Camels  ;)

Hey guys! me and my friend hit up a bunch of stores, and took your advice of not going to walmart (especially for hc stuff). I still go to walmart for under $50 stuff cause at my walmart you can scan the coupons and put them in the box yourself without anyone's approval which is nice. We went to 1 target, and the vita one just wouldn't scan at all. I think it was just their scanner though, cause the barcode scanner app on my phone worked... went to another target with the xbox live one expecting them to recognize it as a fake again, and it worked... they said they weren't sure if it would work or not, took us to some lady at the customer service counter who scanned the wrong barcode and said it was invalid. I just asked her if she scanned the right one, so she tried the other one and.... it worked.. O_o we kept our poker face until we got to the car, then just both started screaming and laughing for the next like 15 mins. I think we'll give the vita another shot at another target, cause that scanner may have just been malfunctioning. I went to one publix where the cashier congratulated me on my coupon, and told me to come back when they had a buy one get one free deal and use it again ;) love it when you get the nice people. The xbox live one alone almost paid off the amount of the HC and standard collection for me :D Loving the starbucks frappe coupon btw. probably my most used one.

Congrats on your success with the HC collections as well as original! I just wanted to chime in and add that the PS Vita wouldn't scan either at two stores. It comes up as manufacturers cpn. but then won't scan to pull up the amount. The two woman cashiers and CSMs were apologetic and told me to call manufacturers and come back if I figure it out.

Good News is that I went 5/5 on Free $25 Itunes Cards in 1 hour and 5 minutes time. (This is a new record). I also went to Bed Bath (you know the rest) and used vacuum sealer coupon along w/ soda stream. I also had a 20% coupon from them...total was $16 for $250 worth of product which I then in turn, went to and returned to a store nearby I knew sold em' and received not a gift card...but CASH. Free money. I couldn't believe it.

I also decided that since I obtained so many gift cards that from now on, for every 2 I obtain, I will be donating the 3rd one to a charity such as toys for tots or some organization of that nature. Gotta keep the (real) karma up and pay it forward as PL has paid it forward to all of us.

Post by: oblonsky on January 11, 2013, 12:35 am
So let me ask you all a question. When you are out on the town making out like a bandit with these coupons--OC or HC--how do you pay? I've made the mistake of paying for a couple of smallish (less than $30) transactions with a debit card but I'm thinking it's a much, much better idea to pay with cash. It was stupid of me to use a card. It's just I typically don't carry much cash on me and typically pay with a card when I buy stuff, but here I reckon that if one were to pay with a credit or debit card it's possible that the fraudulent coupon could be traced back to you. What do others here think? Have others paid using a card or do you try to use strictly cash when paying?

Also, at CVS or Rite Aid or wherever, do you scan your value card or not? I've made that mistake too. Fortunately it's only been a couple of times for small transactions but still it leaves a trail where I can be tracked down. Bad idea I reckon.

Anyway, I'm going to plan on only using cash from now on when I use these coupons. What do others think about this? PL--what about you? How bad of an idea is it to pay with a card?
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: testmessage on January 11, 2013, 12:39 am
It used to be considered common knowledge in previous threads, but you should ONLY USE CASH. It's the only way of ensuring anonymity. There have also been reports of people who used cards getting charged for the value of their coupons weeks or months down the line, which is apparently how some stores handle this issue.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 11, 2013, 12:47 am
@testmessage, you are right it's best to use cash, but there has NEVER been a report of anyone getting charged after the fact when using their card. If that has ever occurred then no one told me about it.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: oblonsky on January 11, 2013, 12:53 am
Yep, I was just being stupid. Thankfully, I haven't used a card for any substantial transactions plus I only have the OC coupons. Haven't used a card for anything over $20, which is still extremely stupid of me but I won't use a card with these ever again, nor will I use my value card either. I haven't used my card twice at the same store though so I'm lucky. The issue is I'm just not used to carrying around much cash so usually when I buy groceries or go to CVS or Target I pay by card. But before anyone calls me stupid (I know I was stupid!!) I won't make the mistake of paying by card or using a value card or anything. I've only paid by debit twice at two different stores and hopefully it doesn't come back to haunt me but I damn well won't do it again.

Are there any horror stories about people getting caught or or arrested for paying by card and getting their door knocked down by the FBI or anything?

@testmessage, you are right it's best to use cash, but there has NEVER been a report of anyone getting charged after the fact when using their card. If that has ever occurred then no one told me about it.

It was probably a couple months ago, but someone did make a post in the last thread claiming that "their friend" had his card re-charged for the full amount a couple days later.  I didn't believe it at the time and still don't..I've worked retail and that's very shady and downright illegal in most cases.  A store is usually not even allowed to re-run a credit card with the customer present if they can't physically swipe the card again and definitely need a signature to do anything like that.

*edit: anyone been using the protein powder coupon?  can't find it at Target so I went to a freshly opened Walmart and it came up as "coupon not matching item" or something like that (same upc, even the same damn flavor as the pic).  two of the other didn't work either but I had used them before and know they both ring up fine two days earlier (they were coming up as something like "coupon use exceeded" as if I had already used them during that transaction or ??)...fucking Walmart.  could the EAS protein shake coupon be tweeked to work for their powder if you're ever bored PL?  I am done fucking around with Walmart's fucked up computers.

Post by: bigndn on January 11, 2013, 02:30 am
I will try the protein powder tomorrow I had some left so I didnt try it yet.I should have got it since I practically begged you to make it.

The headphone coupon looks great!

I tried the battery coupon and worked fine and I am not having any trouble with any coupons.
Once in a while one may not scan at target but will scan at walmart. I think I have maybe 3 like that and I know he retired one of them, the Simply Juice. My bread coupon dont work at walmat but works at target because the UPC. One of the juice UPC was different at Target and didnt work there but did at WM. So the coupons all do work just have to match the first 5 numbers.

On the Hanes if you will save the UPC on the ones you buy to reattach them it makes it easier. They sell 3 a huge variety of Ts, undershirts and briefs so you do have to look through them sometimes to find that UPC and often they go quick for some reason?lol I am trying the Hanes again socks and underwear. First tine sock purchase but the undershirts and underwear work fine.

So I love these coupons but I always have some fears and have a question for anyone who might know the answer or who perhaps has thought about this before themselves. Hypothetically speaking, what are the legal consequences of getting caught? It may depend on the jurisdiction and of course the circumstances but I guess depending on the value of the merchandise, are we talking about either petit or grand larceny here? Fraud? Conspiracy of some kind? Obviously, if for whatever reason you wound up being apprehended by LE and interviewed you would remain silent and seek advice of counsel, but for everyone's security does anyone know what the potential consequences could be and what charges could be brought? I think it would be worth it for everyone to be mindful of and assess the risks and consequences of using these coupons to determine if you are willing to take on that risk. So any insight anyone has would be greatly appreciated.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 11, 2013, 03:48 am
Here is some insight, if LE grabs you, tell them "PurpleLotus taught me!"

People use fake coupons all the time without ever knowing it. Just don't be stupid and make yourself look 100% guilty and it will remain a non-prosecuted crime. You really have to be an idiot to get in trouble, and we have seen plenty of idiots by nw and still no one in trouble.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons

Damn dude im jealous! lol awesome run it sounds like. 

If i may ask what stores did you get the itunes at?

PL the new coupon for the ninja looks ill. Cant wait for that and any other new HC ones your working on to be added to the collection.

I went for an OC run today.

So i picked a new target i have never used. And actually this is only my second trip to target i believe.  So i did my shopping, put all of the following items in my cart in hopes of using coupons plus a few other things beside that.

Bolthouse smoothie
3 General mills cereals
2 ben and jerrys
2 haagen daas
bounty paper towls
dove body wash
garnier shampoo
and a couple other things i think im prolly forgetting.

So the store was pretty dead, basically 2 registers open with a person or 2 in line.  I had the choice of a young nice looking girl or a kinda nerdy lookin doofy guy. Having my pretty gf with me i chose the dude. BTW she is totally down with the whole coupon thing and told me i need to kiss PL for hookin us up with these things. Anyways back to the story haha.  So dude rings all of this up, and it comes up to 85$, then my gf proceeds to hand him a fat stack of coupons.  He goes to scan the general mills one first and cant get it to scan. Im sitting there thinking god damnit i totally was looking forward to those cookie crisps, why this one!!>>?? But then he instead types in the code, -2.50. Sweeet i think to myself.  He proceeds to type the rest of the GM ones in and they all work no problem.  Then the stack quickly diminishes, the ones that wont scan simply get typed in.  By the time he was done we were down to about 32$  Man i love the feeling when you get that receipt and just feel so victorious.

Anyways...Tmrw i am going on a HC run finally, hopefully.  Actually i think i needed tonight. It kinda boosted my confidence using a normal cashier as opposed to the self checkout i been using at walmart. Man target is the bomb!

Had a small grocery run last night, it was the first time I fully stuck to just purchasing items that I had a coupon for.  Total ended up being $54.36 before coupons.  After coupons my total was $3.25, looking back at the receipt it looks like the cashier scanned a few coupons twice.  When she was scanning them it kept saying on the screen "Correct Coupon Amount" or something similar then she had to press a key on the keyboard.  She scanned a few coupons before noticing that she had to hit enter and then went back to try to correct it.  Ended up having 14 coupons on 10 items.

Thought of some more ideas for various coupons:
Space Heater
Portable Fan
Portable Radio/Boombox
Soundbar
HDMI Cables
****Healthy Meals Lunch Express microwaveable meals UPC is 50100.  I believe they are $2 or $3 but I eat them like crazy at work.  They have a sweet & sour chicken that is amazing!
Bagel Bites
It would be hard to pass off and I am not sure how safe it would be but what about a remote starter for a vehicle?  I have been eyeing the Viper SmartStart lately, they have 3 different models a $300, $400, or $500 model.  I want to go with the smartstart as it is controlled through your phone and you don't need an additional dongle on your keychain.
Mouthwash
Body/Face Lotion

I'm digging the Ninja coupon!  I will for sure be going out to try to snag one of those.  A friend has one and it rips through everything!

Just ending a great night with couponing...lol -Never thought I hear myself say couponing as I probably never used one before getting these collections. Never had my freezer so full with frozen foods either. lol

Anyway, went to my local byob strip joint tonight with my boys. My girl calls me around midnight saying she wants to go food shopping at the 24hr walmart for her mom. I am about 10 beers in at this point and tell her I'll go only if I can stop at my house to get some coupons. So lady friend picks me up at the gogo- she cool like that but will not use the fake coupons.  ??? :o

So I hit walmart with fist full of coupons, pretty fuckin drunk and hungry after smokin a blunt(coupon) on the way- feelin froggish so I fill cart with nothing but shit I probably don't need and typically wouldn't buy but have coupon for--about 30 items.

Go to registers, my girl goes first with her full price items. Only one register open at 2:30 am or she would have went to the register  furtherest away from me..lol She don't wanna be associated with the guy fleecing walmart ???  She is attractive w/ huge tits - I wanna get her onboard to pass some of these HC coupons- these high school dudes workin the electronics in Kmart after school would have a hardtime speaking let alone give her a hard time over a voucher I'm thinking.

Girl at register swipes the coupons and I think she got wet in the process-- She said "I gotta get me some of these coupons"

Lightbulb went off in my head! Get her# give her coupons for some inside info and go to her register exclusively with HC coups etc. Has anyone had success teaming up with person behind register?

The CSM came over because 3 coupons wouldn't scan because the value was over price of item- CSM told me they can't pay me to take items form store-lol is that walmarts policy?

27 out of 30 ain't bad.

next christmas we should set up a PO box to send shit to then donate to needy- I might just start leaving the baby item coupons under the items to pay it forward since I don't need them. I have told cashiers I got the items from purplelotus.com in the past- but have yet to give you the due credit for teaching me...Thanks my dude!

If you could only have 3 coupons from the original collection, which three would it be?

1. Trojan Condoms
2. Horizon Milk
3. MyoPlex protein shakes

Yours?

Horizon Milk
Swiffer Refills
Amy's products

So does this mean we don't have to use a condom, kitkat? I'm down.

@The Advocate: sorry for coming off cranky last night, I was seriously intoxicated lol. It's not something I can change though (tor download speeds I mean, I could always not get intoxicated lol)

@bigndn: That's a good idea and we have that and much much more in the works. Got several blender coupons in the works. We shall see which ones actually get released.

@brutefrce: remind me again what a diaper genie even is so I know what I'm looking for... seeing as how kitkat will soon be giving birth to my offspring, I am suddenly more interested in this idea.

@JDank: I wish I had thought about your Christmas donation idea sooner. If we are still going next Christmas then I will definitely set up a P.O. Box for that reason and collection donations, take photos of the actual donating of the stuff while somehow still not revealing my exact location. I think that would be really cool of us.

Thank you for relocating with us AAAARRRRRGGGGG! Glad to hear you are still doing well. You, or anyone else who has been gone for awhile, can always message me personally to get caught up on the latest news.

Let's see... SR administration banned my vendor account and said some things... I won't go into that, but after going back and forth I was able to get them to reinstate me and agreed to do things a little bit differently in regards to my listings and forum thread. As a result I had to recreate all the listings and retire the old forum thread.

Then a week ago I released 68 new coupons into the original collection which you can find now, assuming you have the most recent link, if not then message me for it.

Finally getting to the regular collection.  Everybody's done a great job with tips on how to get them accepted but I need some tips on preparation.

Mainly, what kind of paper do you all suggest printing on?  I have access to quality color and b/w Laserjets but any particular brands, types, or thicknesses you guys find work better for you?

Regular paper is fine, color is optional, I personally use only black toner, but I must admit they really look awesome in color if you can afford to print them in color. I only have a B&W printer myself.

I even do my HC couponing in B&W and have been rather successful with them.

I've been using high quality glossy brochure paper printed in color double-sided. Why double-sided? I don't know. It seemed the easiest thing to do without leaving the back of it blank. They look pretty good, if I may say so myself.

Anyway, because I tend to be paranoid I was doing some browsing on the interwebs about fake coupons and I found some interesting, if not also scary, things. I've seen a bunch of you out there comment on the Coupon Information Corporation, and indeed if you browse their list of fake coupons many of PL's coupons can be found on that list. Now, I don't know how widely shared that database is but they are aware of PL's fake coupons.

Moreover, there are all kinds of scary stories like this one:

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/07/20/robin-ramirez-amiko-fountain-marilyn-johnson-40-million-counterfeit-coupons_n_1690095.html

here's a pretty old youtube video about fake coupons:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JdtOQXCmagA

And this was a kid posting fake coupons on 4chan who got charged with wire fraud and counterfeiting. It says he faces a maximum sentence of 30 years. http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9216640/Student_charged_with_posting_counterfeit_coupons_to_4chan

Hey--look don't get me wrong. I love these coupons. But there are inherent risks here and everyone should be aware of them. Getting caught is a very serious crime and could lead to steep jail time. You can always play innocent if questioned but, Ignorantia juris non excusat. Be careful ESPECIALLY with high value coupons.

Sorry to be a buzz kill.

I sent a message asking oblonsky to remove that post. I'm hoping he does and then I can remove this one too. This is the short version of what I would say if it was not removed soon.

1. Me and RX change all of the information anytime a coupon is reported to the CIC. The CICs list is not used at any retailers and basically amounts to garbage, but we like to keep our coupons clean. The last time we did this was on the last EXP update. RX was on vacation the past two weeks and I was working on the 70 new coupons I released so anything reported in the past 2 weeks may not yet have been addressed, but regardless it would not matter and the coupon would still work fine.

2. WHO CARES if someone was arrested for producing $40MILLION worth of free coupons? That doesn't effect any one of us!

3. Yes some kid was arrested for distributing coupons on the clearnet. Even my listings warn against doing something so stupid in the description. If it were not for Tor and SR, and I was still stupid enough to do this, then yes I would be in jail right now too. How does this effect my customers though? It only serves to scare them.

Please don't post stuff like this. None of it is relevant to any of my customers and their personal safety. Of course we take safety very seriously but no one here has done anything close to what you are bringing up (except me, and I'm my own man who takes his own risks that no one else shares).

Thank you and I hope to see that post and similar ones gone and please let's stick to review or if you must post a news story, let it be remotely close to what we are doing here.

I agree, I don't think anyone using SR at all needs to be told of the inherent risks.  Especially not here.

Ok, back to what matters. I have never used color printing. Everything I do is in B&W. No real reason other than the cost. I have a color printer right now but it's kind of shitty. I thought I had a new one coming a few weeks ago, courtesy of a friend, but that has since fallen through. This has left me pricing printers and you can currently get a HP printer for $9.99 at Target, provided you use PL's $20 off coupon.  Regular price is $29.99. That includes color and B&W ink and is actually way cheaper than just buying the ink.  Make no mistake, I've had great success with both collections in B&W. I just want to take it to the next level and I think full color and some other touches will help me out. I can only imagine how sweet these look in color.  Bottom line - Though each of us have our own preference and ideas of how these should be done it seems to make little or no difference. As I've said before, it's all about your confidence in it, and having a cool cashier never hurts either 8)

In response to the "warning" post-Not necessary.

*Although I'm sure @oblonksy did it with the right intentions, those reports are not only outdated, but also disparate in regards to PL, RX, and the customer base here. Everyone here makes their own decisions on using the collections-Freedom is the glory of SR. It's highly suggested that you know your approach and actions (as PL mentioned above). We don't need those posts but @oblonksy, I am not putting you down, just making you and the community even more aware.  8)

Yes, I made some tweaks and removed the duplicate Horizon coupon along with retiring the Sara Lee Bread coupon and now I will be working on a better bread alternative coupon.

What happened with the Horizon is that both me and RX made them at the same time... we have since refined our distribution of work process so that doesn't happen, but ultimately they both ended up getting tossed in on the last update when one wasn't meant to be included. If you have the old version, then throw away the one titled Horizon (also can be identified as the one with two cartons of milk instead of one in the pic)

I wonder what would happen if we had an COUPON CONTEST! Where we see who could get the largest amount of savings onto one receipt in a 24 hour period! We could have a 1st, 2nd, and 3rd place prize. (I'm kidding, sometimes my jokes don't come across well, but it's fun to think about).

I can't speak on the issue. It was an issue that never had any business being in this operation but none the less sneaked in... It's all good now though and won't be an issue moving forward. If it works for you, then it works for you and I normally would say keep going with it, but I honestly believe this is one of those you only want to keep using at places it works for you. Milk.jpg is golden everywhere, so it is what it is. We work hard to fix any issues which leak through and we pride ourselves on perfection but 1 in 100 times a mistake gets made. This one is now fixed.

Hi PL!  Been busy but had to come by for a quick visit.

Coupons are all still working fine here...

Today I woke up and had Starbucks coffee with Horizon milk,  a couple Chobanis, glass of POM and some pistachios for breakfast. Had a shower with Dove soap and Axe shampoo and put on some Old Spice deoderant. I'm listening to internet radio on my Roku, and printing out a few coupons with free HP ink.  Tossed a few Cliff bars and Maui chips into my backpack for later and I'll soon hop into my vehicle that has Shell gas in the tank with a Cruzer flash drive in my pocket. 

Tonight I'll have Gorton's fish for dinner (Hey PL, figured out how to do that without killing myself!) and a pie for dessert made with the Keebler crust.  I'll also be doing the laundry with Tide and Downey sheets, cleaning up with Bounty paper towels and Clorox wipes and I won't even mention using the Cottonelle. 

Everywhere I look, all I see is Purple.   Dude, you rock!

Tried the new Beats $150 off at Best Buy and it wouldn't scan, then they told me they couldn't take it because they couldn't verify it.  Then I had a buddy try to pass it at Target and it scanned for 5 cents, then they tried it again and it scanned correctly but said it was over their allowed coupon limit so they couldn't take it (that's the story my buddy gave me, not sure about the whole truth in it)

Great idea! I have been meaning to check that out plus one of my favorite things to do when I need to cheer up is go coupon shopping. The savings with these coupons are great and we talk about it everyday on this thread, but what is also awesome but never gets the credit it deserves is the rush I get when using these coupons. I'm sure absolutely everyone knows what I'm talking about.

9:35pm - was really itching to do a few coupons.  Debated internally with myself whether or not I reallly wanted to go out in the rain and chilly weather and decided Hell Ya!  So I dragged my female companion out into the night air and headed for our local Tarjay!  Everything scanned perfectly - had 19 mins to closing when approaching the cashier which turned out to be in our best interest because her only thought was the local bar she was getting ready to visit after her shift.   Dove, Horizon, Clorox, Tazo and Keurig Cups an easy $55.00 for just under $5.00.  She did comment what good coupons these were which I quickly asked her  " who was she going out with tonight! "  That was enough to distract her to lose her train of thought and simply bag me up!  :)

Back home feeling gratified!  Hopefully we can get an earlier start tomorrow and hit up some of the higher priced items.

yea arnold makes a lot of different types of breads. they also have a line of bread with double protein (14g per 2 slices i believe). Extra protein doesnt hurt, especially when i am eating it with my egglands best eggs, oscar myer deli meat, or the peanut butter. lol

Swiffer Refills

Hey kitkat - got a lil Swiffer tip for ya here.......

I do not know if PLs coup for Swiffer is for the pads or the "juice" because im set for life on both.

Here's why.

On ebay they sell "Re-usable" swiffer pads. They are essentially elastic cloth socks that go over the swiffer. When they are dirty, use that Tide coupon and wash them in the machine. They are not "as good" as the real deal Swiffer pads, but save a damn tree or something would ya? ;)


The Swiffer liquid refills AKA "The Juice" - After you have one that is empty (or a few) boil a small pot of water.

Make the water deep enough to be able to fully submerge the white "cap" on the juice.
Boil water.
Submerge white capped head in to boiling water (hold it there) for 5-10 seconds.
Remove immediatly.
IMMEDIATLY (while still hot) use a oven mitt to twist off the cap, like a 2 liter of soda.

**BAM** Profit!

Once you "break the seal" once. You will be able to open and reclose your Swiffer liquid refill anytime.

Needless to say you then buy bulk cleaner, dilute it in to your Swiffer refill...and presto - "free" Swiffer refills for life!

I have about 15 Swiffer liquid refills all refilled and label with something different.

Oh yes, I also use the dry reusable cloths!

The only actual swiffer brand disposable cloths I buy are the wet mopping/scrubbing ones .  I use both sides and even rinse them out in hot water to get them to last for both the kitchen and bathrooms.  I don't have the fancy system that squirts the cleaning solution anymore.  I think my ex got that in the divorce, believe it or not. Oh well, that's life.

I am all about saving trees for sure, I do recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, but I have to splurge on my swiffer wet mopping cloths.  Nothing else manages to get the floor so squeaky clean.   :)

I do most of my other cleaning with vinegar and baking soda, save for the occasional magic eraser.

Anyone else having luck on getting money back at stores?  Last week I posted how I got a few dollars back at K-Mart when picking up a foodsaver.  Today me and a buddy hit walmart up for some groceries and only took coupons that were worth more than the item themselves in an effort to get our items that we really needed for less money.  I got to the checkout and got turned away due to my coupons being printed too small and there was a huge line behind me.  I got to the car and waited for my buddy.  Once he arrived he began laughing his ass off and said that they paid him almost $15 in cash back.  I didn't believe him whatsoever since I figured Walmart would be the last place to give money back.  He showed me his receipt and sure enough the total was something like -$14.50.  I've noticed that if you hand a stack of coupons to the cashier they don't look at them all and more so just scan them.  So as long as the UPC on the coupon matches the UPC on the item you can get a different item that costs less.  We used the $6 off any 24oz bottle of POM coupon on a 8oz bottle of POM.  We also used the $3.99 off 75Count of Clorox wipes on a 35 Count clorox wipes package.

After doing this me and my buddy were talking about coupons that are worth more than the item themselves.  It would be nice to compile a list of which coupons are worth more than the items themselves.  I know I use this tactic frequently when purchasing items that I truly need to get the total price lower.  A few that I know for sure off the top of my head are:

BIC - Find the cheapest BIC stationary product.  For me it is a sack of mechanical pencils.  I believe they are $1.14. - $3 cashback
Clorox Wipes - This only works if the cashier doesn't read the coupon.  The 35 pack of Wipes is around $2 - $2 cashback
DownySheets - This only works if the cashier doesn't read the coupon.  The 75 or 80 count is around $3 - $2 cashback
Duracell - Get the smallest pack of batteries, for me it is around $4.  $3 cashback
Frito Lay - These are around $6. $2 cashback
HanesComfortBlend - Get the cheapest pack of T-Shirts, for me it is small boys white t-shirts around $4 - $3 cashback
Mucinex - Get the cheapest Mucinex item, the various children's mucinex items are around $7. $3 cashback
Ozarka - Get the cheapest pack of Ozarka Water, around $1 - $3 cashback


Also PL a few more ideas for additional coupons:

Air Filters for a central air system
Bleach
San Disk memory cards
Claritin or Zyrtec
Sharpie Marker Products
Linksys Router - Preferably the higher dollar ones that can stream media.  I need to pick up a handful for a project.

From my experience w/ the HC coupons at Target, their limit is $50.  I got the $50 off ATT gophone and free $25 ATT minutes card to work, but when they ring up the 12month XBOX live coupon it scans properly, but then gives the "coupon value too high" error.

I've been smashing on the SW gift cards at Walgreens, but I think they've finally caught on.  The other day when I went in, they told me an e-mail had been sent out informing them that they were fake :/  Oh well, at least they got me where I needed to be over the holidays :)

I've had the best luck on the high value coupons @ Tarjay. I've found it's best to actually check out in the electronic systems area (if there is one) and their limit isn't $50...their coupon policy says that it takes a CSM approval to ovverride their policy of a coupon worth 75% or more of the price of the item. I have obtained a PS3, wireless controller, Nikon coolpix, & a wireless headset from different tarjays...each coupon was over 75% worth price of items. You just have to be nice and influence the cashier to call the CSM over (most likely will have to anyway) and they have all been super friendly and accepting. Maybe just my charm?  ;)

Been a weird day for couponing. First trip was to a Wal-Mart. Nothing big, just a pacl of Pampers, a pack of Huggies, a pack of batteries and a fridge pack of Yoplait. Fucking register jockey was an idiot. Stared at the coupons, started separating them into separate piles and printing out lists of items he had scanned and walking over to my cart to check the items 3 or 4 times. Finally after what seemed like 10 minutes of this his CSM walked over and asked what was wrong. She told him to scan everything, except the pampers because the coupon says 'off one box' and what I had was a plastic wrapped package... The guy still fucked up and tried to not scan the huggies as well after she (the CSM)  had walked away.  I had to argue with him that his boss just told him to scan it and finally he did. Total was 71 cents after I had him take the Pampers off.

Headed over to Target to redeem myself. I had 4 pampers coupons all ready. Carted 4 packs up to the register and they scanned as invalid. Girl called her CSM who said if they didn't scan they could not take them. I walked out. Pretty pissed.

I headed to a different Wal-Mart. Bought an HP ink cartridge and paid at the electronics kiosk. Loaded up 2 packs of Pampers, 2 Packs of Huggies, some Life cereal for my daughter (no coupon =( unfortunately. ), some honey maid graham crackers, and some bread (also no coupon). Cashier scanned all the coupons upside down without ever turning them over to look at them. clicked through the ones that were over the selling price and still didn't turn them over...

Made me feel better. Love it! Purple, you sir are the man. You have made even this currently terrible time in my life bearable and hopefully survivable.

I'm pretty sure I'm going to sound like a colossal weeny when asking this...but....

1. Can you get into any real trouble for using these.

2. Can you use credit cards or is this a cash only type of deal.

3. Should I drive out to crowded locations that aren't near me that I do not frequent often?

1.  technically, yes, but it's highly unlikely.  people use fraudulent coupons without realizing it all the time.
2.  only use cash!
3.  up to you, but it might be a good idea if you plan on using a lot of PL's coupons.

1. Possible but doubtful unless you're pretty stupid. (Don't pull out a stack of coupons that should only exist once, for instance)
2. Best to do cash only
3. Yes. Don't sh*t where you eat. If you go somewhere you're a regular they might recognize you and put 2 and 2 together eventually.

If anyone thinks I'm wrong on anything, please let me know, but that's how I understand it.

As a seasoned veteran allow me to share some wisdom. Ignore the fear mongers.

1. Extraordinarily unlikely. Anyone get's in trouble for simply using coupons will be big news in our circle and you will hear about it here. Any cases of people getting in trouble for coupons involves a lot of money and mass production for profit. You should be fine using coupons. Worst case is being turned down and asshole looks from cashiers and CSMs. (Also very rare)

2. If you are worried, use cash. Do not fear using a credit card. Enjoy your reward points on top of your already great savings. Keep your receipts. If, by some bullshit, they change your total later on, contest the transaction with your credit card company. It is illegal for a business to change the total on a transaction you swiped or signed for.

3. Again, if you are worried or paranoid and it isn't too terribly inconvenient for you to do so go ahead. If you are sticking to big box or busy stores, their volume is large enough that you should have no problem going unnoticed. Months and months of work with these coupons and I use the same stores again and again. I can almost always find new cashiers, only had to deal with CSMs a handful of times and almost never get the same one. I will actively try to re-use cashiers who I have had success with and built confidence that they won't hassle me. Most cashiers and even CSMs are typically just trying to get through their day and if there are issues, they are typically quite apologetic.

Good luck to you. May this knowledge bring you all the joy and happiness it has brought to me.

Looks like these were pretty well covered. I'll add this though. even I have personally put myself into a situation where I came up short on cash and just said fuck it and used my card. Nothing bad happened to me for it, obviously, but it's something I really try to avoid. You just feel safer when you use cash like you feel safer when you place an order with your address using PGP.

I live across the street from a store, obviously I won't say which, but I can literally walk outside, cross the street and I'm inside a store... do I use coupons there? Fuck no... I need to be able to have a store I can use when not couponing.

Those are all good and responsible questions and I'm sure none of us think your a weeny for asking them.

I always just use regular paper and black toner. I'll be the first to tell you success isn't based on printing method, although I must admit color brings a lot to the table if you have the ability. They look great in color.

Can I have the XBOX 12 month? I have no use for any other coupon in the HC collection.. Well.. I can use them.. but cant afford to, and am still getting my jollys from juice, milk, and snacks :)

I would never go around you and ask other peeps for it, and hoped you coulld help me out as a Original Collection member.. Tho I must admit.. I have made my money back in savings and then some.. so I understand if you cannot start hooking us up without paying. 

Just need some fantastical pixel therapy and my digi script is running low..


Also PL, check out capsuline dot com for all your molly bombing needs.. I have a certain cap that is famous around my parts thanks to SR good X source and the pro caps at capsuline!

Would love to see internet coupon codes for amazon or smaller sites tho i imagine that is an entire diff ballgame. Also.. The sugar will be helping me a bunch as I am taking up brewing my own grain liquor. Will still need yeast and corn meal, tho I can manage :)

Swiffer Refills

Hey kitkat - got a lil Swiffer tip for ya here.......

I do not know if PLs coup for Swiffer is for the pads or the "juice" because im set for life on both.

Here's why.

On ebay they sell "Re-usable" swiffer pads. They are essentially elastic cloth socks that go over the swiffer. When they are dirty, use that Tide coupon and wash them in the machine. They are not "as good" as the real deal Swiffer pads, but save a damn tree or something would ya? ;)


The Swiffer liquid refills AKA "The Juice" - After you have one that is empty (or a few) boil a small pot of water.

Make the water deep enough to be able to fully submerge the white "cap" on the juice.
Boil water.
Submerge white capped head in to boiling water (hold it there) for 5-10 seconds.
Remove immediatly.
IMMEDIATLY (while still hot) use a oven mitt to twist off the cap, like a 2 liter of soda.

**BAM** Profit!

Once you "break the seal" once. You will be able to open and reclose your Swiffer liquid refill anytime.

Needless to say you then buy bulk cleaner, dilute it in to your Swiffer refill...and presto - "free" Swiffer refills for life!

I have about 15 Swiffer liquid refills all refilled and label with something different.

Oh yes, I also use the dry reusable cloths!

The only actual swiffer brand disposable cloths I buy are the wet mopping/scrubbing ones .  I use both sides and even rinse them out in hot water to get them to last for both the kitchen and bathrooms.  I don't have the fancy system that squirts the cleaning solution anymore.  I think my ex got that in the divorce, believe it or not. Oh well, that's life.

I am all about saving trees for sure, I do recycle paper, plastic, glass and aluminum, but I have to splurge on my swiffer wet mopping cloths.  Nothing else manages to get the floor so squeaky clean.   :)

I do most of my other cleaning with vinegar and baking soda, save for the occasional magic eraser.

The wetjet. You dont have a wetjet? Kit......GET ONE. they are like $20 and then with the posts above you be moppin for dayssss.....

2. If you are worried, use cash. Do not fear using a credit card. Enjoy your reward points on top of your already great savings. Keep your receipts. If, by some bullshit, they change your total later on, contest the transaction with your credit card company. It is illegal for a business to change the total on a transaction you swiped or signed for.

I dunno, I wouldn't think you'd get anywhere by contesting this transaction considering you used a fraudulent coupon to begin with ....

In my opinion, you should really only use cash when you're using these awesome coupons.

In the few times I have had to contest a transaction, never for coupons, it is a seamless process and generally always works in the consumer's favor. My favorite example, I was at a bar with my best friend. We had a few drinks, and he asked the bartender for one of the special beers from the fridge, something exotic from South Africa or something. When he asked the price the bartender said $7 or something. Later when the bill came he rang it up as $13 or $14. When we questioned him about it he shrugged us off and said "Oh well I guess it was $14." We were pretty miffed, we hadn't been assholes to him or anything and couldn't understand why he would be such a douche. Called the CC company on the walk to the car to tell them what happened. We were advised to dispute the charge, and since they couldn't dispute a portion of the bill, only the whole transaction we wound up drinking for free that day. Never a question from the company after our explanation.

Now most cards let you do it online through your transaction summary. Click on dispute charge, fill out a few boxes, and wallah. Again, I have used my CC many times while using coupons. I was apprehensive about it at first, but at this point I am pretty fucking confident it is not an issue. I keep receipts and check to make sure regularly that nothing changes and it never has. I also do not have the luxury of having many stores a reasonable distance away to travel to without making an hour or more trip. I have about half a dozen which I hit repeatedly. They all have high enough volume that I never worry about recognition. I also take the time to know their policies and try to stay off radar as best I can. If there is ever an issue where I feel they might remember me, I take a week or two off from that location before returning.

At Wal-mart as long as you use less than $50 in coupons in a trip, they don't call CSMs. This is important to me, because if everything scans right better than 9/10 of cashiers will not give you any problems. Also I have heard any coupon over $20 requires CSM approval, although I have not tested this without also going over $50 total, so I cannot confirm it. Still working out Target's policy as I was turned down yesterday for the Pampers coupon. The price of the item was $9.49 and the coupon was for $9.50 so that may have been the issue or they might have this coupon flagged, I can't know for sure at this point. I may try again sometime this week with a higher price package to find out.

Hello Everyone,

Just downloaded the collection and I have a couple quick questions.  How many coupons per sheet do you print?  I did 9 and while they look great and easy to read they seem a little small.  Also have a droid phone with Scanlife app, when I scan the printed coupons, they scan but it doesn't find anything in the database.  Is this just the app, do I need a different one or am I just wanting to confirm they scan at all.  Thanks for the help.  I'm so ready to go shopping :)

Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 14, 2013, 04:16 pm
Yeah 9 sounds like it's way too many and would be a little small. I only do up to 4 per page. Also with that particular app it won't find any actual information but the fact that it scans at all means you are g2g. An app like CouponDecoder for iPhone will actually tell you the information found inside the coupon but so far there is no comparable Android app that I have found.

That's interesting and yes sometimes it happens that a random store or location will get tricky with their UPCs so it's always best to check them first when dealing with HC coupons but often that's difficult since many of those items aren't accessible to you before purchase. If I were you I would go try a different store because if you are the only person to ever have that issue and you only encounter it at one store then no I'm probably not going to do anything about it, especially since you probably already burned the Kindle bridge at that one store in question. If I get multiple reports about it then I'll address it, but I've never seen a Kindle with that UPC or heard about one until now.

Just realized I was very unclear. The Kindle fire HD itself had a UPC that started with a 4 I believe. The coupon has the itunes giftcard upc.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 14, 2013, 06:23 pm
Ah ok, well the UPC on the Kindle HD coupon is the exact same one I pulled off the Kindle Fire HD in my city. I went into the store and got it and just did a check online and it's definitely a valid UPC for a Kindle Fire HD, however it's possible they also use multiple other UPCs in different areas or at different stores. Unfortunately I can only make a coupon for the most common one found since I have no way to tell for sure what other UPCs might exist and where. MOST products do not do this with their UPCs and they remain constant, but every now and then you find one that does this and I have no way to tell for sure until someone reports it to me.

I'll make a trip at a different store and see what numbers I find this time, but I know several people who have passed the Kindle Fire HD coupon already so I know it's working for people. You just have to do your best to look and see if you can spot the UPC on the item and that it matches before presenting the coupon. I would also bring other HC coupons with me in case I found the Kindle did not match, atleast I could try something that did. Again, this issue is not common, but does occur and is one of the main reasons for always checking your UPCs with the HC collection.

I can't set a precedent where I start reworking single coupons for people when it seems to be an isolated issue, all of us I'm sure would prefer I spend my time doing work that will be beneficial to the most people at a time.

Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: miker914 on January 14, 2013, 06:36 pm
I'm going to redownload the HC collection and see if somehow I have an old updated expiration one.
But on the coupon I currently have downloaded with fresh expiration it definitely has a 85909 UPC instead of the 48719 which is the Kindle's UPC (on the product - double checked on a few websites for that).
Will update once I redownload to see if that was the issue.

Edit: Redownloaded and the kindle coupon shows 85909 still. Is an update on the server necessary? Do you have a fixed one locally perhaps but not on the server? Or are you saying that (the 85909) is the correct UPC that should be on the coupon?

I think a few pages back i posted about my issues with the kindle fire hd coupon. I went with my friend to like 3 staples, 1 best buy, and 1 office depot with the kindle fire hd coupon, and it didn't work at any of the stores. Staples doesn't accept manufacturer coupons apparently, and they said they just couldn't get it to scan at best buy and office depot. I think the office depot even tried to enter the numbers on it manually and it still didn't work. I haven't had any issues with the other HC coupons which leads me to believe it's just the kindle fire hd one. Thanks for the hard work, hopefully this is fixable.

Alright, well I'll get into the store tomorrow when I have some free time and double check the UPCs on my end. Is it possible they have a different UPC for different models of the Kindle Fire HD? That's one thing I haven't looked at or had anyone tell me specifically which Gb model they tried it on.

Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: miker914 on January 14, 2013, 07:55 pm
According to bestbuy's website they all have the same manufacturer ID part of the UPC.
Can you verify the UPC that you have for the Kindle (and on your copy of the coupon)? You might not have to waste time running out at all to check them.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on January 14, 2013, 07:59 pm
The 85909 is in fact the one I have which I pulled off a Kindle Fire HD at a Best Buy. I want to go to a few stores to do some more HC recon anyway, so I'll try to stop tomorrow and see if I can't pull a couple Kindle Fires, even if I have to bullshit an employee to show them to me.

Ok first attempt with grocery coupons, epic Fail.  Picked out about a dozen items at local Kroger..  Cashier rang them up, handed her the coupons.  Now she scanned the first one for the bounty paper towels and it worked no problems.  However, she voided that said exscuse me and went to talk to csm.  CSM comes over and asks where I got the coupons, said no idea spouse got them from one of the extreme coupon sites.  She says these are fake, we've had some of these in here before.  I said even though they scanned without incident?  Fake, won't except.    I said ok and simply left.   Try again either tonight or tomorrow.  Does anyone have suggestions on which stores to avoid and/or which ones work.

I have not seen any store, even Walmart, have as many issues as Kroger. I personally don't have Kroger's in my area or I would probably be more aware of their antics, but yes it seems to be a common occurrence that Kroger is a douche. I would stick to Target, and also test the water at your local Walmart since most Walmart's seem just fine to a lot of people. Also test out your local/regional stores by going in with 1-2 coupons and just get a feel for them. Always read the coupon policies if they are available, as many of my6 local stores have rules that you would never know about without reading and that will effect how things go when you hand over the coupons.

I'm also 99% sure they had no way of knowing if the coupons were fakes and had never seen one of my coupons before. I'm willing to bet they have just received generic e-mails about counterfeit coupons and to deny anything that meets certain criteria.

N00b here, wanted to share my 1st 24 hrs with the purple glasses with anyone still on the fence.
1st attempt: 2/2 POM and tunes gc both scanned at the 3rd attempt.
Then, apple TV worked w/o even a blink from cashier, free CODBO2 failed 3 times, "never seen anything like this, lemme get CSM" every time, CSM turned me down. Beats in ear shot down. "walmart doesn't give stuff away, plus there's no hologram".
and subway GC turned down at CVS, CMS told me "We don't accept coupons, go to subway"
bottom line, they all scan (except CODBO2 failed to scan at all 3 locations) but CSMs are being A-holes about outrageous coupons.
To the CSM who posted here earlier, what would convince you to take these coupons?

By popular demand I just finished two new O.C. coupons, $6.00 off Jack Link's Jerky and $6.00 off Monster Energy 4 pack. They are now live and in the root until I get enough new additions to justify a new zip.

I will be addressing the other requests as I have free time and uploading them as I finish since I'm really not shooting towards a huge O.C. release right now. My HC work is going slow but steady, unfortunately my partner in crime seems to be M.I.A. on me the past several days after we last spoke so I'm not really sure what to say about him and the work he has been doing, but rest assure he is ok, he is just having some other stuff that has to take priority for now.

You are a KING, PL!  Jerky Jerky Jerky, it's gon' be in my tuuumy!  And money money money it'll stay in my wallet!  Sorry, a little giddy and a little sleep deprived.  But seriously, I survive on jerky at festivals and that shit gets expensive when you're buying pounds of it.  With the incredibly pure and dirt cheap MDMA on here combined with the outrageously amazing work you're doing this is going to be a hell of a summer!!!   I don't have too many coins in my account at the moment but I'm heading over there to send a tip your way now.  Keep up the fantastic work!

Just writing to say that I used the coupons last night at a local Walmart, and most of them worked no problem.  The ones that didn't work, seemed to only not work because we printed the coupons too small, and the clerk couldn't get the machine to read the barcode.--I saved around 30.00 on my first trip. 

I used it again today, at a different Walmart in the area, and every single one that I brought worked--saved another 24.00.   

This service worked great for me so far, and I would absolutely recommend it to a friend.  It is probably some of the best money I have spent on the road. 

I would like to make a request for a couple coupons that I know I could use, and figure a few others could use as well:  Just throw them on your list, and whenever you get around to them, I would be happy to toss you some gratuity. 

Heinz Ketchup
A1 Steak sauce
ground meat, turkey or beef
Stouffer's frozen meals
Mio (water flavoring) or Crystal light (these two have gotten outrageous expensive)
Bags of Nestle or Mars candy
Chex Mix

Keep up the good work!!

The following changes have been made:
Swiffer Refills has had it's expiration date updated in zip #1
SoftSoap has had it's expiration updated in zip #3

Special thanks to our good friend Shroomeister for pointing that out to me, normally I'm not in the business of naming people who msg me, but if you go check out his vendor profile http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/b5698f6c44 you will see why I am making an exception here.

Also by popular demand and because I had a little free time I have added coupons for a few fast food restaurants:
Free Whopper at Burger King.
Free Combo at Chik-fil-a
Free Combo at McDonald's

I will be working on some new fast food coupons soon too.

Went out Sunday night for a couple of hours to do some general shopping and had absolutely no problems.  PL I am a big fan BUT my girl wanted to make sure you knew she too is a big fan and defiantly has been converted to the PL coupon way of shopping.   She is now talking about what to do next and getting better quality paper to print on.  Everything and I mean everything scanned with these latest updates.  Tide Pods, K-Cups, Tazo, Horizon, Silk, Eggs, Dove, Cottonelle, Bustello and Dove Deodorant.  Saved about $100.00 in coupons about $35.00 in each of the three stores we visited last night.  These have saved us countless dollars and can’t wait to expand our comfort zone and try out some of the other products and maybe a few from the HC.  Defiantly have found that keeping the orders smaller and under a certain amount have made for an easy transaction as well.

 

Thanks again man for all your hard work!

HAHA you are welcome my dude!

And I would waste time making a BK coupon that looked exactly like a real BK coupon, except I think BK is fucking disgusting. I'm going to work on a really nice custom TacoBell coupon next, since I love some Tacobell. Those 3 were coupons from the old collection which people really liked and kept asking for, so I changed the expiration dates and rereleased them for that reason and for those who only have the new collection but wanted some fast food coupons. My next adventure will be making my own soon.

@VISAHATE: Glad you have someone to coupon with! It's a luxury I have never enjoyed, but I imagine it's a lot of fun in twos. I'm still trying to get kitkat to make a run with me.

PL, one small request... I have checked at every store I've been to in my area (12+ stores, several of which were Walmarts) and I cannot for the life of me find the Bounty Select-a-size in exactly a 6 pack. I've found singles, 2-packs, 8-packs, 12-packs, but never 6 for some reason. Could you make a version of that coupon that says something like "6 pack or greater"? I've been having to actually pay for paper towels, the horror....   :o. I even tried it on once since the UPCs were a match but got shot down on that particular one because they do actually pay attention to the quantity around here.

All that said, this coupon pack continues to change my life. I've been able to take the SO on dates for the first time in months with the extra savings. You da bomb.

I hope you still have Blu E-cig refills on the menu, I'm helping a bunch of friends quit smoking and that could be just the thing. But I know you're a busy guy and I already can't thank you enough. Big tip coming your way once I find a good deal on BTC :)

Also looking forward to hearing some success stories on the new fast food coupons... Wonder how those will pass with no UPC or anything to back it up, it seems like pretty much pure social engineering required there if you run into problems. Chick-Fil-A employs 15 year olds sometimes though, so maybe they just won't give a shit. And I'd REALLY love to fuck that company as much as possible for hating on gays.

Hey, I haven't purchased yet, but I gotta say: I've looked through every page of this thread and I can't thank everyone, especially PL enough for providing so much insight and help on using these coupons. I plan on purchasing the OC set later on today.
These are going to make my life so much easier when I move to NYC, I'll be able to live off a few dollars a week and still have leisure money :)
I have no doubt that these will work out great for me, and I plan on purchasing the HC set later on this week after experimenting a bit with these. The city I live in is perfect to reap the benefits of these coupons, we have a super dead K-Mart and every other store you can think of.
My sister is having a baby in a few months and these coupons could really help her so much too.
 Thank you PL for creating this wonderful thread. Can't wait to give you my money! You better believe I'll be around on these boards as well :)

Alrighty then round 2.  First stop a dollar general, manager shot it down saying these are fake, and offered me corporates number and said to tell them that the MANAGER wouldn't except.  Really rude about it.   So moving along to Target, after first two attempts (Kroger, Dollar General) struck out I must say I was a little gun shy at this point.  So grabbed 3 items at target, cashier rang up scanned first two coupons no problems but the glad trash bag one wouldn't work, she checked to see it was right product even tried keying it in no luck.  No biggie she voided trashbags,  so an overall success.  Headed down the road to Walmart grabbed some socks, kcups, soda stream flavoring, redbull  No problems at all.  Tried a local grocery store who said they did not accept printed coupons for over $1.  So second trip to a different Walmart,  I can finally see a good thing from having walmarts every 10 miles lol.  Grabbed a dozen items including new beef jerky and once again no issues no problems .  Between the three successes I saved just under $65!!!  PL you are my new best friend :)  next time I get some btc I'll be eyeballing that HC collection.  So to recap boys and girls, fuck kroger and long live Target & Walmart.

The fast food coupons are pretty easy to pass. I have versions for Arby's and Burger king that look like the Chik-fil-a one. Our stand by line when we get to the register, "can i use this on any of combo or just the one in the picture?" they stare at it for a minute, sometimes get a mgr. Only once have they given me the default combo for whatever place I'm at. Always passes, always delicious.

Best one: Was at a BK trying it out for the 2nd time, we order our stuff. Kid and his mgr and pouring over the machine, "im sorry about this, it will be just a second. Yea, IDK man, I can't even find the button for this coupon. I'll just use my mgr card, do you mind if i keep the receipt so i can staple the coupons to it?"

You gotta remember who you're dealing with at fast food. 16 and 17 year old that give no fucks.

I jumped through all these damned hurdles to fund my account last night and get these... turns out I'm .03 BTC short to buy the HC collection... FML

Anyhow, I got the OC, and I can't wait to get into them, very few places around here will look twice at any coupon. I know, my wife is a legit couponer. Me, I'll be a coupwner  ;D

PL, I was looking through and noticed the K-Cup coupon references "Pringles, LLC". Unless Pringles owns Kuerig, I think you missed something there.

Once I do get the HC, and manage to score a visa card, I'm gonna head to the local grocery store, buy one of their giftcards. Then proceed to their gas station, prepay for that amount with the GC, then pump .01 and proceed to collect the balance in cash.... I used to work there, they can't refund their gift cards so they give cash  :D

Thanks for the great work PL

Sony coupons rang up invalid in 2 different BB... I asked them repeatedly to scan the other barcode (which my coupon decoder identifies) but their system didn't pick up anything.
Flirted with a young cashier at a local grocer, she overrode the miss-scan on the visa GC.
Flirted with a young cashier at office depot, she did not over ride a miss-scan on the shell GC.
Lunch at chick fila was on the cows.
Cashier at near by pharmacy didn't even attempt to scan just gave me a subway GC.

Hmm, are you sure you are checking the UPCs, especially on the GCs? If the UPCs match there should really never be a miss-scan. As far as the Sony coupons that is a UPc I'm rather sure is universal to us all and not one they mess with... did you happen to be at a Target or store which otherwise may have a policy in effect that would prevent that particular coupon from working? I know it won't work at Target, but that's the way target deals with coupons over $50.

UPDATE: Never mind, just saw you said it was BB. Did it happen to be the VITA coupon which gave you problems? Not sure why but a few people have had an issue with that one, while others have gotten it to work... not real sure what the deal is with the VITA or if they are using multiple UPCs on it yet.

Sure, send me a message on SR and request one cample HC coupon of your choice. Don't pick the VISA coupon, as it has lately become one of the least successful because it was really the only coupon most people were using. Doesn't do me any good to give out a sample of the least successful coupon, the idea is for you to be successful with the sample and then want to buy the whole pack.

Yes it was BB and it was the vita, same upc as all sony, I triple checked... gonna check other sony ones tomorrow (too bad I covered all BB in my area) :) Also triple checked the gas and visa ones, the visa one I opened one up b4 just to make sure its the right number and not 7675x which seems to be all over the place, the gas card matched, my coupon decoder scans the "current" bar at up to $101.01 off, the depot's system didnt recognize.
Also Kmart disappointed  me when not accepting the rokux2...
And again I did get the visa card, the page looks legit.

Did you try messaging him again? probably just got lost in the mass of emails he gets every day with suggestions for new coupons and other people asking for sample coupons. I would understand posting here after trying to contact him multiple times, but if you only sent one message and immediately came here to complain... that's a bit ridiculous man.

Yeah man, I'm sorry about that... generally the only messages I miss are when I go to open them, SR times out on me, and then I can't get back in so I say fuck it and walk away and then forget to respond whenever I do get to log back in. I certainly never just ignore anyone on purpose. It could be any variation of a similar situation to the one I just described, but it certainly was not intentional and if you would send me another message I would be glad to fill your request and even give you a couple extra for the trouble.it would almost sound like I'm saying this since we are talking in public right now, but ask anyone who knows me, this is how I conduct business even one on one.

@bio: that is for the cashier to write down the total of how much the free item was.

@vandalax: they aren't giving you a hard time, they are talking to the person who said they made a request and I never responded to them. They aren't giving him a hard time either, just taking up for me. Anyways, send me a message on Sr and if you want some suggestions on which to try I will give you my opinion in a PM and get you some samples.

Ok, so now that I've cleared that up I want to tell my coupon story for the day. Apparently even I am vulnerable to failure with the original collection... this is a new one for me. I go to a store which I frequent on my shopping sprees, I have a bunch of coupons but have used them at this location before so I know this is going to be a piece of cake with no chance of me having any issues. Fill my basket up and the only item I do not have a coupon for in my cart is a 6 pack of beer. Double check my items and coupons, since I hate when I forget things... and then go get in the line I think is best based off of profiling the available cashiers. I'm next in line so I put all my shit on the belt when the cashier suddenly has to go and so they send a manager to check me out... that's fine I'm not worried about dealing with a manager, I've done this plenty of times before. Except this time the manager, to my surprise, is someone who knows me. Well it's one thing to pass these coupons off to complete strangers but it's a whole different ball game when the person knows you, even though she doesn't know me well, and the name she knows me by isn't even my real name, but none the less I simply don't have it in me to hand her the coupons and at this point I can't figure out a decent excuse of my I no longer want the items. Now that I've been able to think it through I could have just said I forgot my money or some shit, but ultimately I just froze, let her ring up the stuff while I pondered it and then finally just paid full price. FUCK paying full price!

The most successful coupon I ever made was for the ROKU 2, without a doubt. I released it as a preview of the HC collection when I was working on the HC collection and had mroe than a dozen people confirm it as working before I was able to release the collection. It's not the prettiest, since many of my full page ads look awesome, but it's by far the most successful. To say a dozen people confirmed it right away, means a dozen people confirmed it... that's nto counting the people who have over 8 ROKUs from it. That's my opinion of the most successful coupon, since it was the coupon the most people went out and gave a try. By the time I released the collection, the FREE $50 VISA coupon became the most successful coupon by a large margain because that's the one everyone wanted, it was wanted so badly and used so often that it even made some stores and some areas send out mass e-mails warning against it, as a result I no longer would say it is the most successful, as it was once SO successful that it now suffers from diminishing returns.

If you bought the HC collection the day it released, you were one bad ass mother fucker who was doing as good as anyone who could print money. That was one exciting time, and I hope to bring it back again soon, but ultimately it was the VISA coupons which were so HOT and the rest of the HC collection still remains just as useable today as it was on day 1.

Fuck paying full price indeed!
Wanted you to know that you scored,well WE scored an omega juicer today,GODDAMN those mother fuckers are expensive.
I thank you sir.
By the way...Any news on maybe creating those R.W Knudsens or Santa Cruz  organic juices and the applegate organic products?
I would gladly TIP the very jar that I suggested and helped mandate here for all the cheap bastards who save thousands from you and never pay it forward.
That reminds me.....You have a nice tip coming anyways,fuck it. ;D

Grats on your juicer man, it's a fact that you deserved it!  As far as R.W Knudsens or Santa Cruz  organic juices go I really am not familar with those products, so maybe if I knew more about them I'd be more inclined to make a move on them.

Pour me a class of juice and let's have a toast to all the savings to come!

How do I continue to get negative karma? I haven't had to fuck anyone up or hand them their ass in 2013... back in 2012 that sometimes became necessary in order to protect our community, although not always handled with the most tact by me, I have since made a New Years resolution to be more sensitive when handling opposition/thieves/trolls/idiots... Is Limetless really just sitting there counting down his 72 hours in which he can give me -1? Or maybe NickMode finally reached enough posts to be able to give Karma... nah, that's unlikely. Oh well, fuck it, it's the haters who pushed me to where I'm at and continue to motivate me to do more.

@shrek: Yeah, they got those here. I rarely go there, do they even accept coupons? Actually if I knew they accepted coupons I would even go do an entire recon trip just to whole foods. I'm a fan of their products, and despise their prices.

@T4B: Yes I will take care of that for sure. The fast food coupons are the only ones which were not made from scratch by me, but people kept asking for them so as an afterthought I decided to toss them in there.

Ok, so I'm thinking it might be interesting to make a small set of additions geared completely towards Whole foods and similar stores that sell items we don't always find at Target/Walmart. I have a few suggestions already but if anyone wants to add any requests then please let me know. If I walk into Whole Foods this weekend to do recon, then I'm likely not going to really know what it is that my customers want the most from them.

Post by: nitpi950 on January 16, 2013, 04:31 pm
I know PL has a fine rep here, just to give my experience with the vendor as is the obligation of any SR member:

PurpleLotus offered a free sample of his coupons, and I inquired and demonstrated my interest. He responded by inviting me to pick one. I informed him of my selection, and never received a response. Long over a week ago now.
Did you try messaging him again? probably just got lost in the mass of emails he gets every day with suggestions for new coupons and other people asking for sample coupons. I would understand posting here after trying to contact him multiple times, but if you only sent one message and immediately came here to complain... that's a bit ridiculous man.
Like I said, was not complaining, just sharing my honest experience. I generally only message someone one time; otherwise it gets to the realm of pestering. And I feel like it's unnecessary anyway since unread messages are flagged and all.
well he probably just forgot because he was busy dealing with actual paying customers...any vendor w/hundreds of positive reviews and page after page of people listing their positive experiences w/these coupons for the past 6 months has no reason to be giving "samples" since half the people on here who ask for them are just mooches (though I'm sure he would anyway since he's a nice guy)
Like I said, it was he who offered the sample. Again, not complaining, just saying what happened. Seems like people can't grok this.
Yeah man, I'm sorry about that... generally the only messages I miss are when I go to open them, SR times out on me, and then I can't get back in so I say fuck it and walk away and then forget to respond whenever I do get to log back in. I certainly never just ignore anyone on purpose. It could be any variation of a similar situation to the one I just described, but it certainly was not intentional and if you would send me another message I would be glad to fill your request and even give you a couple extra for the trouble.it would almost sound like I'm saying this since we are talking in public right now, but ask anyone who knows me, this is how I conduct business even one on one.
Ah yeah I can understand that. I've been lurking long enough to know you're a stand up guy, nothing personal. And thank you for handling it like a sane and tactful human.

Alright, I think I'll just pull the fast food coupons for now until I can make some higher quality ones myself.

@m3bimmer: ok ok, I'm sorry you had to ask me so many times. I'm just slow to make a coupon which already exists in a different size, but I plan to fix up the bounty coupon today to allow for different sizes and I'll also make your coupon, but how much do you want it to be off for a 16oz?

Post by: TechKnow on January 16, 2013, 06:14 pm
I have to disagree with PL on the VISA $50 GC. It has been my most successful coupon to date, mostly because I've tried it the most. My current record in around 30-40 days is 15 tries and 10 passed. All you need is a good personality and come up to the register with a overly nice attitude and the rest is luck of the draw on who is behind the counter.

If they question it I tell them that I did 4-5 hours of surveys to get it. One time a manager came over and said "oh yeah, it's just one of those free gift card coupons" and manually entered it.

Keep up the awesome work PL.

Post by: griffin420 on January 16, 2013, 07:24 pm
I'd have to agree as well the visa' s still work its all about presentation and who you decide to take as a cashier.
When the HC collection came out I reached up over a dozen in the first two days and continued getting them on occasion thereafter. 
As far as the other HC I have successfully passed all HC that I have used.  I've never been turned down for a roku I have gotten 10+.  The PS3 and the rca tv were a bit more difficult but passed them none the less. 

I wanted to thank you PL for making the updated amazon coupon.   I picked 2 of these up yesterday, only paying taxes on them.  Both times no manager approval necessary, though you do need to set talk them a bit. 100% acceptance rate, though I ended up only getting 2 for 4 at the stores I visited.  This was because at 2 stores the system simply wouldn't accept the discount.  Going to pick up a couple more today.

So to sum up the HC collection, buy it.  However be sure to prepare a story, dress nice, don't talk in slang.  If I was a manager who would I trust to present legitimate coupons?  Not a scruffy looking individual but an upstanding member of society.

Just my 2 cents.

Thanks again PL

Thanks PL. The fast food ones do pass, just a few times I had trouble with it saying Los Angeles. I did have the Chick-fil-a pass many many times, then a manager came over and said they had been contacted by corporate that they were not an authorized coupon.

I don't have a whole foods by me yet, but I have heard one is coming. Otherwise I'd help out with recon. Any progress on any of the automotive coupons we had talked about a while back? I am in the market for some new wiper blades, and most of us buy oil and tires from time to time...

I feel bad when I ask for things as you have already and continue to do so much for us (customers and me personally). Just trying to add to the discourse and bring up ideas that others might appreciate as well...

Announcement: For those of you who are suddenly unable to post on this thread, it is because SR started a new policy last night where new users must have 50 posts in order to post on the regular forums and now can only post in a new "newbie" section. I really dislike this because many of my posters and reviewers had less than 50 posts. I'm sure there are many of you with less than 50 posts who have been long time members of the forum and supporters of my thread and the only reason you are now under 50 posts is because I had to delete my old review thread. I am extremely sorry for that!

They did this in an effort to prevent spam bots, which I'm sure many of you have noticed was a problem on the forum. What I am going to do is ask SR administration if I can setup my own review thread in the Newbie section so that everyone can continue to participate and we can just bullshit around with each other to help everyone who is interested to reach 50 posts quickly. It's unfortunate but I understand many of you don't have the time to grind out 50 posts just to be able to leave reviews for your favorite vendors, this really sucks and I'm very sorry this is effecting our community in a negative way.

Whole foods can be tough. It's not really a 'coupon' kind of a place. And they don't carry a lot of national brands. mostly small scale organic/natural food (overpriced mostly but some really good stuff) brands. most stores have local brands to their region also. many things that have no coupons. certainly going to raise eyebrows with a stack of coupons at the register.

http://dkn255hz262ypmii.onion/index.php?topic=108360.0

Comes join me, I did this so you can work your way up to 50 posts but on a topic you actually gave a crap about, instead of having to make 50 posts on completely nonsense which is about all there is on the newbie thread. Please come kick it with me and let's have some fun so we can get you up to 50 posts and back onto the official thread. Also if you want to share your experiences with my listings for the newbs to read, please do so! We can do things just like we do here, except feel free to make more posts even if they aren't really relevent, because after all, goal #1 is to reach 50 posts.

Very happy you mentioned the Santa Cruz. First time I've seen someone other than myself mention them at all.
Any time I go to whole foods I spend well over $100 and I usually just buy meat, seafood, and maybe some santa cruz lemonade when it's on sale. Can definitely see you spending that much there.

@Shrek: I had to ask RX the exact same question! WTF is New Chapter?! I still don't know man.

Trying to make a pretty sweet fucking set of additions to the HC collection tonight, thanks to RX joining back in with some support. May or may not get it finished and live depending on how it goes, but knowing me I'll probably get it done tonight. Just polishing off my Ninja coupon after some feedback and then I will be uploading them and announcing the list. It's not going to be like the OC list I recently added, but we have decided to go all FULL page ads now so it's taking considerably more time to make an add than it does an OC coupon.

New Chapter is a non-GMO vitamin and supplement company. A jar of 48 One A Day tablets cost $39 normally, but was on sale for $29, and there was a stack of coupons from the supplier for $4 more off, and with PLs $9 off, I paid $16. Worth it. I haven't seen the brand at any of the big box stores.

I also buy the Flaxseed oil in the vitamins refrigerated area and a plethora of healthy body products such as tom's of maine,Jason products,and their own brand of 365 products which I'm not really sure if coupons CAN be made for those.....but yeah they accept the POM,Amys,annies homegrown,and horizon coupons so If I could at least get my bill down to 200 or lower....It would make all the difference in the world,HELL...I could start really using this juicer that PL hooked it up on and buy tons of fresh/organic produce every week with the money that I save and reverse my health problems.
Just my 2cents though,
PEACE

Yes, that sounds about right ;) WF is a very good place, as are there sister/associated/copy cat stores Hannafords, Fresh Market etc. in other regions. They do carry some national brands, for sure, but not many, and a lot of the brands they carry are smaller producers that never offer coupons, and not many people that shop there bring coupons other then the ones published in their weekly/monthly coupon book.

I've been meaning to ask...What IS new chapter?
Blindman I like you bro,we seem to have a lot in common,lol Whole Paycheck!
Yeah I was thinking about returning that juicer but with no receipt,That's store credit....and at Bedbath and Beyond? NO THANKS :)
I love that fuckin thing,too bad I wasted money on the Jack lalanne high priced model about one a year ago.Thanks for the tip on their website....I have not done so as they don't mail me anything being 45miles from the closest one so I never have any idea what deals are going on.
Peace

I just buy vitamins from Target...shrugs...I never remember to take them though.

New Chapter is a non-GMO vitamin and supplement company. A jar of 48 One A Day tablets cost $39 normally, but was on sale for $29, and there was a stack of coupons from the supplier for $4 more off, and with PLs $9 off, I paid $16. Worth it. I haven't seen the brand at any of the big box stores.

THANKS!
I am an avid vitamin and supplement user so that sounds great to me....right now I am using the RAW brand of multi-vitamins as well as Udo's oils for EFA's and tons of herbals to remedy the issues I have with my chronic illnesses.Do you hold NEW CHAPTER above RAW in your opinion?
If you PM me I would like to share some info on these 2 unique supplements that I take daily that have made an extreme difference in my condition and general well being.Hey KIT-KAT....gotta get on some quality vitamins/supplements sooner rather than later due to the fact that there is virtually ZERO nutritional value in the foods that 99% of us consume on a daily basis,more like POISON if you do the research on GMO's and chemical additives.
HEY PL......you gonna re-do the original collections expiration dates? I really miss that collection but if not I completely understand.
PEACE guys

I would be interested to hear some pointers on what supplements are important to take and why. Also if you wanted to split up some of the work I would be willing to knock out some of the exp dates on the original collection next week or over the weekend.

New HC coupons being added tonight! Once I'm in a location where I can actually upload them.

OK, listen up, so I can't possibly count how many of you have told me you would buy any listing of mine in the future, I really have the best customers on SR for sure, but I also promised I won't make any more coupon packs unless my hands were forced to where it literally became necessary for me to create a new coupon pack for some unforeseen reason. So this has always put it into my head that I need to be working hard to come up with the next big thing and introduce something new to all of my friends on here that they would be able to buy and receive something of the same high quality they are use to receiving from me. I wanted to come up with a new listing that everyone wants to buy because they know it will be something new and great! The good news is the NEXT BIG THING has finally become a reality and is now ready for public consumption on SR. No, it's not a new coupon pack, the two I have now are perfectly fine to continue to hold all of the new coupon work we create. It's something that I am extremely excited about, and when you see it I know you will be too! Get ready... because if you loved all the hype and craziness that occurred during the initial release of the HC pack, then I think this week coming has the potential to top that party we had! Grab your popcorn and some coins... shit is about to get real.

Hey handsoap! Welcome back bud, we missed you! Remember that time you were an upstanding and respected member of the community until the communist government decided you were to be stripped of your rights? I'm glad that's over with.  lol

@shrektastic: it's going to be extremely hard for me to hold this in until release date, I'm pretty much about to burst with excitement. I can see myself breaking down and showing a sneak peak early... for now I just want people to know it's coming so they can stay tuned. Looking like a full release on Tuesday morning, but if we can get everything under the hood polished up and detailed sooner, how could I resist an early release?

@robotrippin: Should I just start accepting preorders right now? Without even telling people what it is they are buying? I'm joking of course, but not one person would be disappointed I promise... especially if I offered a discount on all blind preorders. It would be like the best Christmas ever (even better than that time we didn't have to buy gifts back in 2012)

Haha. I would do a blind pre-order right now if you'll do it for what I have in my SR account. I'd imagine it'll cost more than what I have, but I mean what I said. With what you have already saved me on both collections I really don't even have to think about buying your next installment. It's an easy decision for me. The longer I take to buy it the more money I lose. I never thought coupons would give me the excitement that they do. I can only imagine what you have lined up. It's gotta be awesome!

@kingsandman: Tuesday is still a good bit away, the price point is just about established and we are now in the final stages of what is looking like a very, very promising beta test... I'll release details about pricing soon and explain the breakdown of options. I certainly want that out there with as much time as possible for people to prepare, it's possible pricing will be announced at the same time I release the new HC content later tonight.

Also... at this moment I cannot release those details, but they don't call me The King of Heroin, Weed, or MDMA...

I had to see what this was about, and I was lazy, I just read the 1st page, and then the last.

Just to be clear here. This has nothing to do with drugs or illegal substances? 

It's really about store coupons?

I'm sorry, someone please tell me what I'm missing here.

I'm not being condescending, I just think I'm getting dumb~!

Is coupon "code" for "blotter"???

I mean bitcoins over an encrypted network just for COUPONS??? -

OK, the joke is on me. - Pile on me. What part am I missing?

Hi jagfug,

Yes, it's really about store coupons, and receiving 80-90% off of whatever you use PLs coupons for. And PL has excellent customer service......

ps nice tag line, it's been awhile since I've heard that one, made me laugh, again

....and welcome to a kickass thread that's fun as hell to follow!!

If some of ya'll could toss handsoap and VISA some karma for having survived the depths of the newbie board, that would be much appreciated. Welcome back!

Yeah, it's really just coupons... and for all of you who requested XBOX's, those will drop within the hour with some other really cool stuff.

Now let's talk about THE NEXT BIG THING... for those of you who aren't sure what I am talking about, go back a page.

Pricing will work like this. There will be two new main listings added on Tuesday. One for $50 and one for $100. They are equal in price to benefit ratio, except that the $100 listing comes with a FREE bonus for people who see the $50 listing and instantly know they will want two. Then for those who by whatever logic somehow see this thing and decide they just want a taste of what the benefits will be first, there will be a $20 listing but this comes with a stupid tax as it is double the price for the equal amount of benefit relatively that you would receive from the $50 or even better the $100 listing. Does that make sense?

@the new guy: no PGP is required, as my current two listings are digital downloads. You are welcome to use PGP to communicate with me, but I'll only be in a position to answer PGP messages at certain points in the average day and I can't say anyone has ever said anything to me or asked me a question that required PGP to answer, but it's cool with me. Also the downloads are hosted by me in onion land on my site, so we don't ever venture off into the clearnet like other digital download vendors might do.

SPOILER ALERT: The next big thing is not a digital download, not physically mailed out, and is a completely fucking new concept that has never existed in history until now. Thank us later.

You will make $100 stretch easily to $300-400.

Thanks to the return of our beloved RX7GOD, the new FULL PAGE additions to the HC addition are as follows:

$35 off any XBOX 360 Wireless Controller
FREE copy of HALO 4 for XBOX
$35 off XBOX Wireless Headset
$150 off XBOX Gaming Console
FREE Logitech Mouse of your choice

These can all be found in the last of the HC zips.

Unfortunately RX cannot join as of right now, as he is below 50 posts as many of my friends are because I had to delete the old review threads... this saddens me deeply and I feel responsible, but apparently not as much as it saddens RX who then went back and changed his feedback for my retired collections to 2/5s with a nasty note about how he doesn't appreciate this shit! J/K, but seriously we look forward to your return and don't get roughed up by any newbs in the meantime.

PL

@calicojak: yes, as many times as your heart desires, or until you run out of ink, but we made a coupon for that shit too.

Had to report back.  Couldn't find that Tyson crock pot meal anywhere around this region.  Looks like it maybe in your general region only.

2nd time out so I spread out my buying to 4 stores (probably a little overkill) to save $75 on $100 worth of stuff.  Could've saved more but in several cases I picked the more expensive option because I didn't like the choice at the lower price.  Now I'm mad because I want to go again to some other stores but my freezer is full!  Guess I could get a few more canned goods and misc. stuff instead.  Still stocking up on a few things though.

I printed in color on plain paper and only one cashier looked at them in any detail beyond telling me I apparently knew what I was doing.  She was just that kind though and there weren't any others to pick from at the time.

You sure can, I use the $10 Burger King GC all the time at Walmart. I use up to 4 at a time. Easy. Simple. Never have to talk to anyone. That's the first thing I do when I go in. Then I might do some HC at the electronics section. And finally, onto the food shopping. That way I knock out 3 things on one trip. Fun times!

It's all good. I'm in no rush. These new full pages look to awesome. I can't wait to put my finishing touches on them and head out.

Think you could rework a yoplait yogurt.. The 8pack is awesome but limits the flavors to a few.
Maybe like the chobani X amount off so many or so.

and a non regional water.. dasani or nestle.. ozarka ... i'll use that one when i go back to texas  8)

I believe at one point or another I had seen someone posting about returning couponed items. Has anyone done this at target, with receipt?
They apparently have a weird system for it...
They will give me back the amount of cash shown on the receipt as tendered. excluding change given.
buying a $143 item with a $100 off coupon so the total is $55 or so after the coupon and tax and then paying with $60 cash: When returned, getting $60 in cash back and $95 as a gift card. Paying with a $100 bill got $100 in cash and $55 in a gift card for the return.

Has anyone else tried and had the same results or did you get all gift card or all cash back?

Post by: qazwsx14 on January 20, 2013, 04:36 am
Mighty lucky there miker. In theory they should return the mfr coupon price...at the minimum as store credit, otherwise it would be fraud as they are collecting the money for coupons and not actually giving the discount.

Issue with that is many stores are aware of people buying large amounts of items with coupons and then returning them to get credit/cash back.This is why some will return only the price the customer paid...

Post by: purplelotus on January 20, 2013, 06:00 am
I always just do my returns without a receipt. I'm happy with store credit as I can buy alcohol or things otherwise unobtainable by coupons (which is now few and far between for us).

Did you guys know alcohol coupons are completely doable with no issues for me? The issue is that it is illegal in many states for alcohol companies to make coupons. Which means if you are in one of those states, yes the coupon I would make would work flawlessly, but if you get someone who is educated or took a class and knows it's against the law... WELL, that's why I do not make those coupons.

i would def. be down for some alcohol coupons. mainly miller lite beer. i know this guy who works at a gas station at night and he does not give a fuck about his job at all. i bet i could pass a beer coupon at that gas station. nothing too crazy just maybe like 6 bucks of an 18 pack or something like that.

Thankfully both cashiers were rather disgruntled with their employment and couldn't wait to use the opportunity to complain!   Everything scanned with no exception!  Awesome day may have to go out again!

SUNDAY SHOPPING CONTINUED..............

These coupons are working so well that we had to do a Second round just for fun.  Went to our two favorite stores and now its become a challenge to see how little we can spend!  Total this round in product $68.00 with total out of pocket of $ 3.65 - found several items that were on sale and able to offset some of the cost with the credit!!!!!   Making todays total - about $178.00 in product for just under $18.00.  Didnt have much trouble although the cashiers this evening were some what less disgruntled and both wanted to know where we got such good coupons.  Answer was online survey and this is how we were paid for our time made it seem like what they sent us was more of a burden and couldn't wait to get rid of them.  Shopping this time included Kleenex, Eggos, Silk, EggLands Crisco Oil, Horizon, Tropicana and Welchs!!!

Did go to CVS to try a Visa Card - $40 off of $50 but wanted to know about that 4.95 activation fee?  Is that standard on all of them? 
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: handsoap on January 21, 2013, 02:40 am
Yes, coupon or no coupon the 4.95 has to be paid. Sounds like an awesome day of savings.

Did you do the visa in CVS self checkout or reg cashier? I can't get CVS to pass any of the gift cards (it either scans or works when number punched in but manager usually turns me away. One manager told me about some email branches got saying these are fake... Glad to see its just regional.

Post by: zeke on January 21, 2013, 04:21 am
Did a small walmart run last night for some weekly groceries.  Nothing extravagent but I have been taking note of coupons that are worth more than the item itself.  Or coupons that have the same UPC as another similar item that is cheaper.  As long as I hand a huge stack of coupons over the cashiers haven't noticed yet.  With this technique I am able to keep my balance within $1-$10 for every $50-$150 total.  This is amazing for purchasing stuff that there isn't coupons for.  For example the BIC coupon for $4 off can be used on a $1 bag of pencils.  Or the $5 off a 120 count of downy sheets.  If you get the smallest thing of Downy sheets, I think it is like 20 or 30 for $1 it has the same UPC, so you get $4 back.  I've used up to 4 at a time at walmarts with no problem.  Last night picked up a a little over $70 worth of groceries and paid just under $5.  Now of course I also have a stock pile of shit that I have no use for.  I may take it somewhere to donate it.  I've already donated at least 40 bags of mechanical pencils to a local children's organization.

PL I also sent you another bitcoin, I know its not much I haven't had much cash to put down lately due to budget cuts at work.  I am supposed to be loading up a large amount of coins later this week for a friend and should be able to get a decent size donation from him, so if all goes as planned I will shoot a few more your way.

One idea I had last night while making up some HC coupons on glossy paper with holograms.  Would it be possible on the HC coupons to leave a small section where it would look like a hologram would be?  The user would still have to apply the hologram to the coupon.  The problem I am running into is on some of the HC coupons there isn't really a good spot to put a hologram, as it looks like it doesn't belong.  Looking at the HC coupons one of the best examples I could find was the xbox coupon, at the bottom it is all white and has the 3 logos.  What if the 2 on the right were pushed left and left some room on the right side to apply a small hologram similar to this *****CLEARNET WARNING****** http://www.ebay.com/itm/100-BRIGHT-SILVER-HOLOGRAM-SECURITY-VOID-LABELS-STICKERS-SEALS-1-INCH-/300609146941?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item45fdb3903d *****CLEARNET OVER****  I know this would be extremely difficult as many people have many different types of holograms, different printing sizes, etc...  But just an idea I thought I would throw out.

Also did you ever make a coupon for those sterilite containers by chance?  Downloading the new hardcore pack now, and excited for the announcement!! I am personally hoping for a coupon for free cash from any bank of your choice, or possibly free oxy from any pharmacy?  Haha  Thanks again PL your the man!

Depending on how difficult it is to update the collection, it might be worthwhile to have two versions: one with space for a holo and one without.  That way people can use as they see fit or not.

@FramedAgain2222: It's simple to do, but would take a long time because of how many times we would have to do it, plus all the reorganizing and uploading takes a good bit too. So like I said, it's easy to do if you want that option... but the day I do it, I use my own holograms and then make them look amazing and mail them out as physical products.

So 24 Hour Stores Rock!  Bored on a Sunday Night Nothing Much to Do decided to head out for one quick shopping spree - knew our luck couldn't last with cashiers!   Boy oh boy did we get a winner on this last round.  First let me say that we threw in a few regular coupons for random items and that all the coupons did scan both newspaper ones and SR ones however this miserable 50plus - non English speaking ( and I am far from prejudice ) but she literally spoke broken English analyzed each and every coupon from top to bottom reading each line.  Several of the coupons were for more then the items purchased which is what I think sent her off the deep end.  She called a manager over "laura" very nice 30something women and proceeded to tell her that all my coupons were for more then the items.  Of course I immediately spoke up and said no that's not true there were only a few items like that!    My defense wasn't needed because "Laura" had already begun scanning all the coupons through with no issue - explaining to our non English speaking friend that it was ok sometimes coupons are for more than the item and the customer ends up getting the money back.   She proceeded to finish scanning all the coupons and quietly walking away.  I of course apologized for the line that had formed behind me and she said no problem! :)

The cashier then totaled us up and gave us our change however she somehow didn't seem too thrilled and failed to wish us a safe drive home!  LOL - my girl mentioned the C word several times as we unpacked our bags and recalled the experience!  Oh well still got $52.00 worth of items for $9.50 - including Eggos, Cottonelle, Pampers Wipes, Purex, Silk and Clorox - Total today $230.00 for $28.00.

Ok guys check this out...My and my gf's food budget for the next two weeks is $10, money is tight right now because we have a couple big bills coming along with a freakin $188 traffic ticket. I have yet to buy the oc collection and that will of course be my first purchase from PL but I'm trying to figure if I should get the oc collection this week, which the cost would come from my food budget, or should I wait until I have more expendable money which would be in two weeks? The reason I ask is because I don't have a computer or printer atm and I would be going to FedEx Office to do my printing, which also costs money. I know you guys don't know my situation entirely and you're not living my life but just trying to get opinions. Thanks :)

Man you need to get them now and stock up on the food. I wouldnt wait. Its a no brainer to get the OC set. It will save you money and you would have more money now if you would have bought them earlier. IMO
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: robotrippin on January 21, 2013, 08:54 pm
@calicojak    I'm not sure just how tight things are for you, but if you can get the OG collection and make it work within your budget do it. You will get 5-10x the product for your money.  Hell, if you do your homework you can get close to $100 with of products for $10-$15.  It's not worth waiting.
 That goes for anyone actually. If you are on the fence about purchasing either of PL's collections just do it. Every trip to the store without these is a wasted one.  If you need help with anything or advice on when/where to use them there is almost always someone on this thread available to help, if not PL himself.

Listen to Robotrippin. They are right man. You need to incorporate the OC into your bidget and get that pantry stocked, then buy the HC later. You will not be sorry. We will give you all the help you need and PL always answers. I still cant believe I get so much food now. Its crazy!

Also with that ticket, I would call the clerk and tell them you need to pay that out. Fuck those towns raping citizens when times are hard, just to get their pensions.

Thanks bigndn and robotrippin ....

Yeah the bastards will be getting a call from me before I send a full payment, hopefully they will work with me on it.

The only reason I was on the fence about buying it this week as opposed to in two weeks was because of a possible learning curve for the newbie. Like I said I would have to go to FedEx Office to use their computer and printer and I'm not sure how quickly I pick up on printing these things out properly. I'm leaning more towards going with buying the collection this week though, I'm just hoping it all goes smoothly and I learn how to do this very quickly because money is tight for the next two weeks and I need food lol.

Its not hard to learn CJ. Is as easy as pushing a button. I usually make 4 to a page, no more than that. A lot of them will print in sets of 3 per page. So its not that hard. You will make the money back and he also has a coupon for a printer and I bet if you ask he will give it to you when you buy the OC cause he is a hell of a dude and would know you needed one. I bet ya! Get to it man and start saving money. Learn to buy items you can take back for a credit so you can use that for groceries and that will help in hard times. You will make your money back man first day.lol I promise!

As for printing them out, almost the whole collection is already in the proper size so there's not many changes needed. There are a few that could be re-sized but that's a matter of personal preference. You should pick it up almost immediately as there is little to no learning curve.  You don't even need to worry about color, that should save you a few bucks there. I know PL has said he prints them in B&W and they work fine.  There's a bunch of us that do B&W, myself included, and it works fine.  You'll pick it up in no time. Shelves will be stocked and bellies full;)

If there's any issues just give a holler on this thread. I'm sure someone will help you out ASAP.

I agree with all the above!!! :)
Go get it, you want a learning curve?  Do what Bigndn said, print pages of 4 of all your necessities, go try one out.
But if you read enough of this thread you would know the OC all scan w/o problems.
It will pay for itself in the first 1-2 trips and you wouldn't be able to wait till the next trip, you will start dreaming UPCs LOL
I see you decided to get them while I was typing so enjoy  8) you wont regret it

LOL thanks handsoap!

Have you guys had success using two of the same coupons and getting two of the same items in one trip or do most stores only allow one coupon and one item per trip. So letd say I wanted two pizzas, so I print two of the same pizza coupon would it work in one run? Maybe it just depends on store policy right?
Anybody have success at Winn-Dixie or Publix? I also have many Wal-Mart's and Targets near by, I live in a huge metro area in the SE US. The Target near by sells groceries and I know I read people said Target is easy to pull off.
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: robotrippin on January 21, 2013, 11:09 pm
I stick to singles of each item per transaction.  You may be able to do multiples but I always figured that may draw unnecessary attention to the purchase.  If you are just starting I'd stick with one until you are comfortable trying to do it.

Not sure about Winn-Dixie or Publix. I'm nowhere near them to have any insight. I can tell you that Target is a favorite amongst us for the OG collection. Walmart is also fine, especially if they have the self checkout.  Kmart is good too, but they are a bit more expensive than the other two. Personally the only trouble I've ever had was at Walmart. But that was due to me getting greedy more than it was on their part. IMHO if you are new I would start at Target as that is almost a guarantee. Get yourself a list and try to stay around $40-$60 in coupons and you will have no problems. That amount of coupons should get you around $60-$80 of product. That's a nice score to get going.  Once you do it a few times and you become more comfortable with the procedure. Then the fun really begins ;D

most coupons scan w/o limitation (i.e 1 per customer etc.) but sometimes an insecure cashier will look it twice and call for help, even then don't sweat it, either give back the extra item or make a huge scene, dump all the groceries and take your business elsewhere :)

Ok, the next big thing goes on sale tomorrow, but it's fully operational and I am releasing it now so that you can all play with it. Anyone can visit the site and guests can use all of the features and do full previews. you simply need an account and credits to finalize your work once you like how it looks!

Welcome to "The Coupon Club!"

Conceptualized by PurpleLotus and made into a reality by web designer extraordinaire Klipp

The world's first coupon generating .onion website! Capable of making a coupon the quality of any that PurpleLotus makes in less than 10 minutes with just a little input from the user. You need a product image to upload, an optional watermark if you choose, and also the infamous first 5 digits of the UPC we all are use to by now. You select the expiration date and also the amount you want off followed by the coupon text such as "of any (1) bottle of Coke".

At the moment it is only capable of amounts up to $10 off. We have many plans for future features and upgrades but we are finally, after months of work, ready to release the first version for public consumption.

http://couponerpcuhkcyn.onion/

I have to go to class now, but I expect later tonight when I get home there will be many opinions and questions and I can't wait to get back to you all! Enjoy the fun new toy!

UPDATE: Official listings will be posted tomorrow, along with a new review thread for this item only in Product Offers, as it's a brand new product. We still need to change up a couple things, for example we want the free coupon of the week to be one that all of us dont already have, obviously, we just used that one as a nice example of what can be made with this thing.

NICE dude! I'm super excited to try this out.. is the SR Staff OK with you bringing us to a seperate .onion site? Also, were you going to make it so that people can see the coupons already created? Or is every coupon private?

also please read the directions... but since it's only a preview, you can't really mess anything up, but once you have credits, please read the very easy and concise instructions.

ALSO, YES IT IS AN EXTERNAL ONION SITE, but it is only for the actual functionality. Credits can ONLY be purchased on SR through my vendor account. We will NEVER do any out of escrow transactions, as always, and the links on the site to buy credits simply point you to my SR listings. Never will any money be exchanged in any other manner, unless you also want to toss Klipp a tip for his hard work.

I've never used a droid before or a FedEx office before, so take my advice with a grain of salt.  I know at the UPS store most stores have an assigned email address that you can email files to to have them print them out.  I would be wary of this, but then again I am a paranoid person as it is.  Another idea does your droid have a removeable memory card?  What about downloading the images to the memory card and taking the card in to have them print it off of it?  Again not sure if they can do that or not...  Why not just give the FedEx office a call and explain that you downloaded some coupons to your phone and need to print them and see what they have to say?

I typically open a new Word document and insert whichever coupons I want into it.  Once I have them arranged and sized the way I want, then I print.  You can do the same but save the doc to a thumb drive or cd.  Take the drive in and at the self-serve stations they'll have a place to insert it and an interface to pick the document you want to print.  Pick n' print.

I'm not sure how paying works though.  I know they have CC readers at the self-serve but they also may have the option to print a bill that you take to the counter.

Personally I find Wal-Mart to be far easier than Target. Although Target is pretty good, I have had way easier successes at Wa-Mart. As for using multiples of the same in one trip. I have no problems buying 4 or 5 Horizon's in one shot, 2 cans of Enfamil (at a local grocery even, not a big box retailer), and 4 OJs at a time. So I wouldn't sweat it on other products either.

Good luck to you. Sorry to hear about your troubles. I hope you land on your feet.

I used to work at FedEx Office/Kinkos.

There are easy ways to do this. There are cannon printers with usb fit in on the printer so you can select what file you want to print. I think you should use Word or some other program to format it up right. I usually prefer PDF files as they give no issues.

You can get a blue card where there is  a load limit for $10 or $20 depending, so you can use it and pay at the register.

For privacy reasons get a purple card from the kiosk and insert cash to get the purple card. You can always reload it and keep it for yourself.

I don't recommend giving kinkos the file to print they do have privacy laws but they purge files from there machines couple months. You can always use a fake name and stuff and always get away with it.

Let me know if you have more questions about FedEx as I have alot of experience and in printing.

I have a question...can you please continue the updates and work you've been doing in addition to this new generator?
My woman has been bitching at me for the different stories i keep giving her on why she can't have the laughing cow cheese or many of the other items I used to get,lol  Also.....since re-doing the exp. dates on the generator would cost an extra credit,how long do you think we should make them for just to be prudent? 5months max?
great idea though and I hope I can figure out how it all works easily after purchase.
I will be one of your first buyers buddy....

I'm lit right now, but tomorrow I will use the generator to make the laughing cow coupon and make that the free coupon of the week on the site. We will always have a free coupon every week on the front page made by the generator that anyone can have for free, whether you or a customer or not.

And yes, I very much will be continuing my work as usual. I'm just offering a new service that fits a need and is high quality.

Let's look at it like this... you make one coupon for a product you love and get a lot of and make it for $5. Then you print out two of the coupons and grab two of the items and check out. You have officially lost no money and have a $5 coupon for one of your favorite items which you can keep using over and over now.

Oh and not to mention, you are the only person who gets to use that coupon. Plus now you get to interact and participate in the coupon making process, and then go pass your very own coupon you made yourself.

Fellow Silk Roadies,

I've been on the Road sine last March and have both purchased and sold items. The Coupon Generator is by far the best item I've come across, and easiest to use. I've been playing with it the last couple of days, and wanted to tell my story. After making 6 coupons in under one hour, I headed out to my local Walmart. Found the items I had coupons for, went to the self checkout with cash, and passed all of the coupons with out a single problem. While still at Walmart, I did some recon for future coupons to make for the next trip. Then, back to the fort to generate some more. Same thing, made another 6 coupons, only this time they only took a 1/2 hour to make, as the program is so simple. Next stop, Target, found the items, did my recon, and had to go to the cashier, as the self checkout was closed. Same results, everything scanned without a question. I've since generated coupons for Whole Foods and other local grocers, without having a single problem.

To me, this is a game changer, and will be for anyone who purchases it. And with the support you receive from Purple Lotus, I really don't see why this wouldn't be the very next purchase you make. What ever money you were saving or using for anything else, can easily be tripled or quadrupled by using the Coupon Generator. For $100, you can make enough coupons to save $1000 in a week or two. On my latest trip today, I spent $29 at Walmart and walked away with just over $250 in merchandise. I went thru self checkout 3 times, and once to the cashier. No bubbles, no troubles...was grinning the entire time.

Thank you Purple Lotus, for your genius idea and vision, and Klipp for making it a reality and simple to use.

If anyone has any questions, or would like further details from my ventures, please feel free to PM or ask here.

Forgot to add, today's trip only took 1 hour. So that was over $200 for 1 hour of 'work'. String a few days of that together, and you can see how much saving can be had.....

I know all you technologically advanced people are working with the coupon gener. now but slow folk like me are still doing the OG coups LOL and had a few questions. JK about the first part (kinda), PL knows I'll be on that train soon too. :)

Anyway, I was wondering if people had luck with the Camel coupon @ a convenience store like 7-eleven, rite aid, cvs, etc. by itself OR should I just incorporate it into my coupon purchases for my runs at the big store. The only reason I ask is bc most the time it's in a separate section and requires assistance from a cashier or CSM even.

Also, with the Horizon Milk coup., and a couple others, (they have the exp. date, pin #, etc.) in small writing around the coupon itself vs. the usual dashes. Should I cut the surrounding off or keep this? Thanks so much.

@bio: assuming you have the updated versions, that does not need to be cut off, it's the way several real internet coupons are made.

Some contain the expiration date and a print date too.

You mean will the current collections soon be available from the site, this way I never have to change the link again because people will need a login and password to access the collections they own and I can then manage those accounts? If that's the question, then fuck yes that's in the works and will be the case soon!

it doesnt matter what the price of bitcoins is, my listings will cost the same no matter what at the time, as long as you dont hold on to them for a long time, and the price then drops after the fact.

so far the reports are that 100% of the coupons generated have worked flawlessly, wish we were getting to the point where we had more reviews getting posted here, because I know that's when other become ready and willing to give it a try. I can't wait until we see more success stories about how awesome this thing is.

@PL or we could just tuck some OC coupons in their panties. haha.

I just wanted to let you know that I made my first "Big" run with the OC collection the other night at Walmart. By big I mean like 120+ worth of coupons. My cart was full and went up to this little teenie bopper girl and handed her the coupons. All packed up. Took awhile..only issue was with the Axe product, I tried to purchase the loofa thing but it wouldn't scan for the item so I just said screw it. Long story short...subtotal before coups: $187.00.....final subtotal after coups: $30.00 saving $157! The only reason I had to pay 30 was I purchased probably 5-6 other items w/0 coupons. So thank you. Oh and right afterwards...went to the smoke counter...laid down 3 of the camel coupons and got 3 packs for 3 dollars. I was just starting to quit too...LOL

Haha luckily I don't smoke camels really..I ended up giving them to a friend who does (I charged him like 7 bucks lol) but I can't believe how compatible those coupons on...YOU are DA MAN! I'm going to be refilling my wallet soon with BTCs so expect some love from Bio soon. After using the OC coups I've kinda laid off the HC ones but my brother was able to get an Apple TV, 5 itunes cards, and some subway ones. He doesn't know where I got em' but on his end I'll say thanks! lol.

On a side note for those small groups of HC users...the last attempt I made was at tarjay for the full pg. beats studio. CSM brought me to guest services and the computer said "coupon invalid" and she told me that it's fake so she'll just throw it away (in a very bitchy manner I must say). I put my hand on that coupon real fast and told her that's my coupon and just bc it rang up as that, doesn't mean its fraudulent. With a stern look in my eyes she backed off and I split.

I should really find a place to write this to make everyone aware, I just felt like saying "read the coupon policies of your stores" was sufficient, but this is one of those rare examples where I need to somehow make it known in the Hc listing, but Target will NEVER accept a coupon over $50, which is why you had trouble and it came up as invalid... it wasn't the coupon, it's tarjay.

The Night Club idea is awesome! Been wanting to do that for years.

Bioman thats a hell of a deal you got there! I now have it down where I am saving several hundred dollars a week Cant tell you how much buying these OC from PL has saved me and it makes so much of a difference in my life.
My buddy had 2 heart surgeries so I gave his woman 200 in coupons and she said she only spent like 7.07. Thats better than I usually do and shes a first timer. Girls are naturals at this shit and they fucking love coupons! Its funny to watch them shop just to shop and stock the house up.
Cant thank PL enough for the fun I am having with these and of course the money I save. If you want a raise or offset that huge new tax increase this is a good way to do it! It pays for itself the first trip. If your sitting on the fence better come on over and join us. This is the best deal on SR hands down because it will pay for itself and you will make money by saving money.
Hope everyone is having a great night!

@PL..the reason I went there in the first place is because I got my discounted PS3 there, the CSM just overwrote it. Their coupon policy states that they accept manufactured/internet coupons that are worth up to 75% of the retail price of the item. In my case for the PS3, $175 out of 269.00 I believe just barely made it and CSM overwrote it anyway. I can say that out of obtaining around 700 worth of electronics at tarjay...this was my first issue. The lady was just an uptight and stressed manager in her 30s and decided to be rude. She probly needs the coupons for the KY jelly and condoms-problem would being finding a guy to bone her. haha anyway....

Thanks @bignd...I appreciate the support. I think PL has officially established the best community based program here in SR history!

I've also been using target for coupons >$50. They just need a supervisor to put in their code/pin to override the register objection. Works like a charm almost every time.
Even had security go back for 15min and look at the coupon and research it (keurig) and then come back and say it was legit.

Post by: 420blindman on January 27, 2013, 03:29 am
I don't feel PL needs to keep adding to the OC. You can tailor fit your shopping list using the coupon generator. That way, you make the coupons for what you're already buying, and only you have that coupon, no one else. It's as if PL asked you what you keep in your house, and he says, "how about I make a coupon for everything you have?" And only you get to print them out? Win-win in my book!  If anything, he could simply keep the OC updated when the time comes. Or just re-create it yourself, $10 for a 4 month coupon is a steal.

Lotus.....thank you for the thousandth time,I know you have had your fill of nut-hugging people who say shit to get free stuff from you,Not that I don't understand why they do it...You're such a giving and considerate dude and I'm glad I have the pleasure of knowin ya for more reasons than I can think of.
If people DON'T buy that from you....it leads a further belief that I have been fighting that Americans are NOT getting any smarter.Off of 2 coupons at 4 stores in a 1 hr run today mixed in with the OC...I paid for the entire 10 pack that i bought a few days ago.I'm no economics major...but I think I just "Found a winner" and will be investing in THIS.....FUCK the stock market and greedy corporations....I'm taking my portion back thanks to you.
PEACE you awesome little bastard. :)

Always the way it goes....the better a person,the more BS they gotta deal with.Too bad the fuck-ass wasted money on a vendors account.
I hate thieves and liars....so he's batting 100 right now.

Meh, after seeing how NickMode did, someone who stole NickMode's idea doesn't really bother me anymore. Hell, I even recommend NickMode's listing over this new clown. Both kinda pissed me off by entering my market under false pretenses.

I don't feel PL needs to keep adding to the OC. You can tailor fit your shopping list using the coupon generator. That way, you make the coupons for what you're already buying, and only you have that coupon, no one else. It's as if PL asked you what you keep in your house, and he says, "how about I make a coupon for everything you have?" And only you get to print them out? Win-win in my book!  If anything, he could simply keep the OC updated when the time comes. Or just re-create it yourself, $10 for a 4 month coupon is a steal.

Yeah I understand that, but I would hope that the collections still receive updates every once in a while as I feel PLs hands on work is still somewhat better than the generator.  Not saying the generator isn't good, because it is totally badass and works amazing and as soon as I have some extra cash I plan on purchasing some tickets to use it.  I just don't have a lot of extra cash to buy a lot of tokens to use it.  Hopefully when I get some extra cash I can purchase some and try it out.

So just got back from a small shopping trip just a few items.  As long as we were there decided to bring along a couple coupons.   FIRST OF ALL!!!!!! GET THE GENERATOR!  Its awesome, easy to use and worth the money as is everything that PL has done to date.

That said we went with Bustello, Kleenex, Dove and Nabisco!  In addition went with two of our very own Coupon generated ones and a couple of newspaper ones as well.     Late evening shopping and it happened to be pretty quiet tonight.  As usually I do the shopping my girl does the register ( shes much better with people ) and I wait in the car! 

Here's the thing we usually scatter the newspapers ones to distract - this time all the newspaper ones were on top and one after one received an error message!   Thats right the REAL ONES all received mismatched error messages of course these were for $.50 and $1.00 values so she looked over the coupon quickly and then typed it in.  Now as she started with the SR ones each and EVERYONE scanned perfectly!  No mismatched errors or issues!  Not sure how my girl kept a straight face cause I wouldn't have been able to.

On the ride home we discussed that its really how you react to people and keep in mind that when you do get an error message its the same error messages that come up with "REAL" coupons!  So relax!  Assume Nothing!  And keep on Shopping! 

Not sure how someone else would have the balls to try and compete in this market because its obvious PL has perfected it and you cant compete with "AWESOME" 

Thanks again PL!

Its just fucking great brother! No where else on SR can you get this service or these ORIGINAL COUPONS. There is only room on SR for one PL! All these copycats are wasting their fucking money and can never compete with your business. You are the COUPON MASTER and an OG! My people thank you!!

Haha bro I just did the exact same thing! (cutting out a bunch of OC coupons for the morning) LOL. I print in color and it's so satisfying when you finish each coupon with a nice pair of scissors and throw all those scraps away. I've probably gone through 4 trees by now LOL. I'll donate some money to "save the amazon" foundation to make up for it. haha

All the fuckings I have taken in my life are completely reversed because this OC and HC collection makes me so much damn money in savings.

Seriously tho, in only 2 weeks with these I've saved hundreds of $$. I can't thank PL enough.
I don't fully trust the competition but if there is any, the generator just hit it out of the park.

I had an interesting experience last night with the OC.  I pretty much did the opposite of what I've done every time before.  This time I went to Walmart just after midnight. I had on jeans, t-shirt, and unzipped hoodie but nothing dirty or stained.  Also only picked up a few things from the coupons but bought a few things that didn't too.  They rejected 3 of the 4 coupons.  Mission chips expired in december (didn't notice that one), but they rejected the Gillette blades and Cliff bars because "they don't say internet coupon and look like they're copies of newspaper coupons."  I laughed and played it off but still.

I've passed those before several times each (even at the same store) but previously I went in Fridays at 6pm when everybody's coming in from work, dressed in my nice business clothes.  Goes to show timing and appearance count a LOT.

Had such great success with the Generator Coupons had to go out today again!   Three of the various chain stores with a total savings of $115.00.    Only one scan issue which was the KY Jelly!  CVS didnt pick it up but the young man behind the counter just manually entered it.  I assume he didnt want to question KY Jelly  -  to my girl! :) LOL

Today's shopping included Silk, Clorox Wipes, Dove, Colgate, Ziploc, Cereal, Tropicana, Kleenex, KY and Water!  Awesome as usual!

Well I put a huge dent in target today.lol It was awesome! I went twice for over 300.00 in savings. Then went to WM and I had zero problems with cliff bars or any other coupons I normally use there. Another 78.00 in savings there. Had to buy some printer paper and more ink.lol I think there are two cliff bar coupons in the set. I need to look. These coupons all worked flawlessly for me. Happy shopping! I love those BIC coupons!

That will be fun! purplelotus should have that list set up ASAP!


Nothing coming this way! I'll let you know..

Is anyone receiving PM from Intrepid for some unknown reason? Dude makes no sense asking me to delete his old post under an old name. WTF?
123man keeps trying to buy the HC from me. He just dont want to pay for them. Too bad! PL could use the free beer money if he did pay me!lol

I dont usually mix HC with my OC. I only mix it with THC before I go shopping so I dont get anxious with 300.00 worth of coupons in my hand.lol

THC helps no doubt, I've been eying 420BM's jillybean for a minute, I think it can complement shopping like $0.50 horizon milk complements free cereal. Unfortunately my rl connect is too damn reliable

Shrek, VisaHate, Blindman and HandSoap just received positive Karma from me. Thanks for all your support!

CIC.lol Fuck them! We dont care. They have no effect at all on what we do! They are too damn slow!

Right back at you bro,Also....some VAGINA also gave me a bad karma....probably the thieves that I call out,Either the one that stole my vendors account and blackmailed me or the ones that keep attempting to rip off of lotus' work here.
I think at the end of the day,the only thing that helps with the fact that they hate themselves and KNOW what they are....they get to click a button and make our numbers different.You know what though? I don't really care because REAL karma is the one that matters and these pieces of shit are going to ALL get what's what in the end,that is for sure.
So clickity click pussy,why not message me here and come out of the closet?
BACK TO THE COUPONER!!! ............AWESOME! saved another 180.00 today as well as returning that juicer without proof of purchase and getting 100.00 more than I paid for it minus the 200.00 coupon....300 bucks IN MY POCKET.This weekend may have been such a nice one that it will negate any sucky thing that may happen on monday.Thanks PL!

Call your credit card company and tell them it is an unauthorized transaction. I do not belive they can do that to you if you made the purchase and they changed the amount. I would call the cc company!

Oh yeah! Sorry, I forget people keep naming MDMA pills after Nike's. They are shoes which retailed at $650 in a very limited number, so now they are $2-3k on ebay depending on how much use they have on them. People freak out when they see them, and keep telling me to be careful not to get robbed for them... the quality is awesome though, and I love them.

I do believe that's illegal. Any charge incurred after the transaction could be considered unauthorized. There's no need to go into the coupons,  even if they were to prove your intent was to defraud the store that is not the legal way to address it. I would for sure call your CC issuer and file a claim. I have an anonymous prepaid that I use sometimes instead of cash and I've never ran into this. I will have to keep an eye out though.

As for the karma attacks I went back and hit just about everyone active here with a +1. Sorry PL, got you yesterday.  That bullshit ain't gonna stop this train. ;D

I hope AAAARRRRRRGGGGG gives a little more info on his incident.
From what I know the sorting facility hits up the manufacture with reimbursement requests per store, I am not sure if MFR gets physical coupon for verification. I also don't know who takes the L (if found) with PL coupons MFR or store
Store--->sorting--->MFR takes about a month then for their busy people to identify 1/1000 stand out, match it to receipt, then to card then file for chargeback w/ cc company were looking at 1.5-2 months? I'm not doubting him, it could happen but I def. wanna know more for our future use of these

I give out so much +1 karma to everyone, that the amount of times I get the "error cannot repeat a karma action for 72 hours" message is RIDICULOUS! LOL

Also, an easy fix to the problem... Always use cash! Charge backs sound strange for sure, but we certainly don't want to get into a situation where you are fighting with your bank over $18 and no one doubts he is being sincere... who knows what really happened, but always use cash and be smart!

Purple Lotus, I have a request for you...

The Axe gave me trouble at walmart, because the barcode was different...
At my location its 11111, not the one we have currently. So they said no.
I tried Target, and the barcode was also 11111, but she still override it. So good.

What do you think about this?
Think we can get a Axe coupon for 11111 barcode?

Yea for sure cash is safer, or a pre paid card but it's not always easy to know what your total will be and if you have enough.
My other problem is stores' loyalty cards, I've opened 2 anon ones, and use the courtesy one where offered but some stores require ID for that... in those stores I've been lucky enough (twice) to get the people behind me in line to scan theirs for me, figured they can't get hurt if 1 use somehow got traced to them

Had such great success with the Generator Coupons had to go out today again!   Three of the various chain stores with a total savings of $115.00.    Only one scan issue which was the KY Jelly!  CVS didnt pick it up but the young man behind the counter just manually entered it.  I assume he didnt want to question KY Jelly  -  to my girl! :) LOL

Today's shopping included Silk, Clorox Wipes, Dove, Colgate, Ziploc, Cereal, Tropicana, Kleenex, KY and Water!  Awesome as usual!

Did you try to get the basic KY jelly or a different KY product?
It scans on the basic product (4oz, didn't try 2oz) but not other ones I've tried lol

Secret: Walgreens $6.50 (3.5OZ bag) -$6=.50 and tax.
They had em on sale a week ago. $3.99, I walked out with free bag. :)

Jack Links Jerky that is...
I think you are talking about the Large Bag $10.99
So yeah just get small 98% off...and buy 2 of em..lmao

O and lmao, last time I went I grabbed the big bag instead, and when I saw  the numbers, I was like Did you really scan it? He flipped the computer screen around, and was like SEE.. I payed for it anyways, but still was pricey

So lesson learned, grab the smallest bag, for maximum savings :)

Jack links is one of the only ones that state an exact size on the coupon, meaning it will scan with any size bag but if this coupon is not part of a stack of them, you're taking a risk that your cashier is literate and is not afraid to use it

I tried it twice in local chains and failed miserably, every single coupon called for assistance and most of them were not accepted. one time I removed everything and paid for what scanned, the other time I just took everything to live cashier and it worked flawlessly.
Maybe they just limit coupon use in self checkout around here... Don't know

No, there is no way to do an exchange without fees to get BTC using a MP.  If you find a vendor who claims this, then they will just take your MP and leave you empty handed.

The closest to getting an exchange for LOW fees is through a vendor I (and a I'm sure others) know about who does it on the side. Last night I sent him 460 in MP and received 442 back in BTCs in ~3-4 hrs tops. Go ahead and PM me for further info and I can send you in the right direction. I'm not going to put direct info up on here as it is PL's forum.

Hey guys! BTC's will be in thursday and I can't wait to get the OC! Couple of questions.
1. Can I print off 25 or so let's say "Campbells"  coupons for instance and use them all in the same trip? With other  multiple coupons?
2. Do I have to have a certain number of SR prchases before I can order the OC?
3. How is everyones progress with the HR collection?
4. What are some examples of the generator you guys are using? I want to get it but don't know if it would pay for itself unless I could use it for video games, gift cards, ect.
5. Can I print an unltd number of OC coupons for my fam?

Thanks in advance (moving up from the n00b thread)

It will work but i only do like 4-5 at a time on one item. No amount for OC collection only HC. Everyone is different HC. YOu have to talk to PL about the generator. Yes you can hep your family and is encouraged somewhat to do that. I would try to give their business to PL and send him beer money once in a while and do not give away the links to anyone at all ever.

Ok so on the HC collection. How do all the free things work. Like the xbox live and so on can someone elaborate? & is it unlimited amt of times? Same for the itunes and gift cards? If I live in a big city with mult stores like walmart, tarjet, kmart so on & just rack up 100 xbl cards. What keeps me from getting all these and just reselling? 
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: handsoap on January 30, 2013, 05:19 am
It depends on the store's coupon policy. Some don't allow you to repeat coupons more than 5 times per cart (for example),
A lot of stores will alert CSM if a certain amount is reached...
The best way to know is just to try it out, you'll find your groove 8)

YOu just print them and go for it. You sell your property if you want to. Its America. Use them as many time as you want to use them just dont give out the links to people that didnt pay for them. Use them everyday until they expire if you want. If you go get it then it is yours. You can sell the XBL cards you get. No one cares. Do what you want man. No one is trying to stop you. When you buy them come back and we will help you with anything you need man.

Also, which chain(s) have the must successful acceptance for the coupons bought from here?

Just wondering and looking to expand my knowledge, as I may end up purchasing the coupon collection!

Dude, JUST DO IT!

so easy, and fun, addicting kinda...

You get a link, with unlimited amount of printable coupons.
Print many and save 95% on you items. Thats 100's of dollars in your wallet, every week.
Example cigarettes, $10 of 3 packs, if you are a smoker, that pays in 4 coupons.

Walmart, target, walgreens, love em.

pretend like these are real... like you printed them on couponmom.com
They look SO GOOD, and real, and scan, nobody will have a clue...
They look better, than internet coupons...

Seriously, its a RUSH..

PL I had an idea the other day, and then thought about it some more while messaging someone.  What about creating a document that goes along with some of the higher dollar coupons to help verify the validity of them?  One of the ones I was thinking about in particular was a PAX pass/ticket to help pass the Xbox 360 coupon.  I went ahead and was successful with just the coupon by itself, but this may be an idea to try on higher dollar items.  We could print the full page coupon on high quality glossy photopaper while printing the tagalong document on cardstock or even laminate it to help put CSMs minds at rest.  Just an idea!

I'm gonna print out about 20 pages of stuff they need and tell them to meet me back at walmart.This saving money and becoming more financially stable is amazing shit and raping the fuck out of evil corporations is pretty cool lotus.....but sometimes we have days like today and it puts it all in focus.I think I just made my own day.Thanks Lotus!!!!!

I always had this idea to create a fake coupon verification site.... just rip off a real one, and put verification codes on all the coupons, when typed into the site, will come up like it was a legit/verified coupon (probably only the HC would need this ever). Seems easy to put together, but the tricky part is actually pulling it off securely, so I haven't fucked with it.

Not only do I experience great things in real life, but also here on SR. Life ain't bad man, and doing good for other people is what makes my life better. If I'm down or depressed or unhappy, the first thing I look for is how to do something nice for someone else. I know that shit always works. Whether it's using coupons to buy hundreds of diapers for a classmate of mine who I overheard mentioning to one of her friends about crying because she couldn't afford diapers... or whatever the next best thing I can do in front of me is. So, both with and without coupons, that's what it's all about man.

So I think I may have created somewhat of a coupon monster........... usually the girlfriend and I go together to do weekend shopping!  Apparently she has moved on to her own trips.  This is what she has reported back to me......... The Generator is Awesome! LOL  - Picked up Silk, Bustello, Tropicana, and Colgate without skipping a beat at our local Tarjay.  The CS rep was a young girl and it was about 45 mins before close.  No reaction to them at all - simply scanned, bagged, paid and left.   We also try to pick up things that will store for several months each time we go like mouthwash and paper towels.  Usually we will pick up one or two of these items per trip to add to the "stock pile"  !   That wasnt good enough so she picked up 3 bottles of mouthwash in that store and had gotten 2 in CVS earlier in the day.  .So we are set on mouthwash at least for a few months!  lol
 
Pampers wipes had come up not valid "give back to customer" at CVS which she gladly accepted back and asked they take the wipes off.  Besides that she had no issue at all!

Hey guys, getting my bitcoins in @ 6 PST. (STAY ON PL SO I CAN TRY THEM OUT TONIGHT!) Also I had a question reguarding walmart coupon policy. Do they have a valid remit address on them?  Also I see where it says, may not be duplicated. If this is the case then how are you
guys gettting more than one of the same item?

I notice (only one coupon per item) in the policy... & the no duplicate coupons/ How are you guys pulling mult coupons on the same item mult times in one checkout?

Does Target differ?

Start small amd build up as you gain the confidence to pass them off. When I go to WM I try to stay under 50.00 in coupons so I dont havet to get a CSM. Its not a big deal I just hit Target for the mother loads but a lot I will it WalMart for 2-300.00. So it just depends on the person passing the coupons.

I usually get 2 -4 of the same item items like pizza, milk, soup no problems. YOu are reading way to much into it! Just print them and go use them. Start small amd build up as you gain the confidence to pass them off. When I go to WM I try to stay under 50.00 in coupons so I dont havet to get a CSM. Its not a big deal I just hit Target for the mother loads but a lot I will it WalMart for 2-300.00. So it just depends on the person passing the coupons. Just relax and relax and relax.lol Dont worry about addresses that dont matter its all on there. PL is an artist and master of this and i never have problems with any OC at all.

Walmart 71.00 saved
Local grocery chain 42.00 saved,ALL on the OC collection with the exception of 6 Generator coupons that did almost 100.00 dollars of that chunk saved.

CHALLENGE! .......I just threw down an imaginary hat and stomped the floor in front of you. :)
I would love to have a friendly game of "Balls Deep" to see who does the best on a particular session of  couponing....HEY,I can name it whatever I want I came up with it,lol
The key is of couse HONESTY,and divulging the method of couponing(ex. OC,HC...Generator) oh well...maybe blindmans weed is just too good and I should just eat some of this annies macaroni and cheese that is mocking me.

Went on a run today to check the coupon I made (finally) used 2 of that and a mix of oc for $90 savings <$30 OOP.

LOL, they can never take your RL Karma, my bud. Also, what do I think about that? I think it was just a manager who was considering accepting the coupon if you provided your ID. I own a set of fake IDs and still would never hand my FAKE ID over for that reason... so chances are that was isolated, but we will find out soon if I'm wrong on that. Walgreens has been a fan favorite here, myself included, and so far that's a first for me to hear.

On another note, in almost 300 pages, that last page was the first where I actually didn't make a comment. Been dealing with some RL issues... I just want to say congratulations to all the awesome posts on the last page. Ya'll never cease to amaze me. I might have thought I was good at couponing, but I ain't even close to some of ya'll anymore. I'm particularly excited about shrek, because those custom coupons, the ones you generate, are fucking awesome. The feeling when you pass your own coupons is one I'm extremely happy to have been able to help pass on. I remember the first time I passed a coupon I made myself, and it was a rush above all the rest.

Also, I never said not to use Best Buy, they do in fact work and accept them... it just feels harder for me and others who have reported back to me about BB, but success there certainly happens.

I wouldn't recommend using a fake id.  Coupon fraud is tough to prove but when it's your mug slapped on that fake id it tends to show a consciousness of guilt.  If anyone is ever prosecuted for uttering fake coupons it would likely have something to do with other crimes which tend to show motive to commit the crime, intent to commit the target offense, a lack of mistake or accident by the defendant, the identity of the perpetrator, or a common plan or scheme.
I find it's best to pretend to be grandma.  When her coupons get rejected she doesn't whip out her fake id lol

Hey PL, and advocate,

I didn't provide any ID at all, I was wondering that it would bypass fake ID as they just write down #DL number. Would never put myself in that situation were I was going to get caught up.

They don't make a copy of the ID itself. just jot down some info on the coupon.

Thanks for the beer money! I think everyone who has been around with us knows how much I love beer! Plus it's the one thing I can't really use a coupon for. (I mean I could, but in my state beer companies can't make them, so anyone who was properly trained might realize this can't be right). You are da man! Would +1, but alas, I cannot as I'm on the timer for you. Can someone else do this one for me?

I understood exactly what you meant. He just wanted to write down the information. I actually suppose it would not hurt at all, assuming you only use your fake ID to buy alcohol, and nothing else. But if this is the case, then my suggestion is that you might want to avoid HC coupons all together, and just get enough stuff to keep your dorm nice and stocked and make college life a little easier on you. HAHA but I can't exactly check IDs when I make sales on here either. I personally wouldn't do it, because I use my fakes for purposes other than just entering clubs and buying drinks... I can already do that with my real ID.

Don't get me wrong... I'm not using them for anything criminal. I'm certainly no criminal...

Wait, did I really just say that? Damn, 420blindman, WTF is in this weed I'm smoking?
*the last two lines were sarcasm, 420blindman's weed is awesome and the purest and I'm certainly a criminal, despite being a truly decent human.

Where is a good location to use the Subway $15 GC? I noticed that CVS didn't have them, nor did the Walgreens by my house. Kroger did, but they rejected it saying that the store policy does not allow for free gift cards. I passed the Domino's $20 gc 4 times (Went 4/6) which was good, but I eat at Subway regularly.

PL, if you could edit the Ben&Jerry's coupon to $4.50 off of 1 pint I would be thrilled. The 2 off of 5 is good, but its almost $5 a pint at most stores so I still wind up spending a bit more than I want to. Just a suggestion..

I also want to tell you guys my experience using the Halo 4 free coupon at Walmart. This was the only time I've been scared while using a coupon. I went back to electronics and asked for them to get me a copy of the Halo 4. I presented the coupon and the girl looked at it for quite some time before trying it. It scanned perfectly, but she still required a key turn by a higher up. So this woman takes about 5 minutes to come over looks at the coupon and says she has to check it on their database of fake coupons or what not. She goes to another part of the store and is gone for LITERALLY 20 minutes. I'm like wtf, kinda just standing there. Started to chat a bit with the girl clerk and act professional, but I was getting uneasy. She finally comes back and says well that coupon is a 1'st so we had to take pictures of it for future reference.... So I walked out with the free game, but needless to say I don't think I'll be going back to that WalMart with say the $170 off of a PS3.. hahaha  Any suggestions, or did I handle that correctly?

I think you handled it perfectly. Exactly what I have done in the past. I am always shocked to hell when an HC coupon works and a manager doesn't get involved. I've had the same thing happen, me standing there, anxious, a manager gets called on the phone, someone brings the coupon to them in the back, and then 15 minutes later they come back and tell me all is well and it works! I've also had it happen where they come back and say they cannot accept it, but it's never been anything besides a polite rejection.

@sysco88: Grats, cashier or self checkout? I get a lot of PMs asking me specifics on self checkout which I try to answer as best I can but the truth is I almost never have used self checkout so I don't have the experience. I usually just refer them to the forums, and assuming they have 50 posts, to come on here and ask. I've only used self checkout enough just to test and know they work great, but my personal shopping preference has always been live interaction with a cashier.

Just wanted to repost a quote from the web designer, Klipp, of our .onion generating coupon site, which you can find listed for sale in my vendor profile. He is currently still working his way up to 50 posts, while keeping people in the newbie forums informed on what's going on.

"Alright everyone! I've enhanced the generator to allow for MULTIPLE ITEM COUPONS!

This solves the issue many of you have been having re: using multiple identical coupons in the same run, or having to go back multiple times to stock up on whatever you need.

Simply change the 'Quantity' field in the generator and you can create, for example:

"Save $7.50 on any THREE(3) boxes of General Mills® Cereal"

Which just happens to be the new freebie coupon!

Go check it out, and let me know what you think.

http://couponerpcuhkcyn.onion/

As always, if you have suggestions, comments, questions or testimonials, post them here or PM me.

P.S. I've also updated the freebie download. Now you can simply click on the preview image on the Couponers' Club homepage and it will download the full-resolution coupon!"

Cashier.   At Walmart they don't seem to care unless you go over $50 and then it just requires a csm key whom have never done more than say wow nice savings.  The one time I tried self checkout ended up having to have the self checkout supervisor help as soon as I scanned the first coupon, he was very helpful scanned them without incident.  So yeah I stick with the humans that way I can pick a cashier that meets my criteria  ;D

Ok, good.. glad that's normal. I try to be as presentable as possible. I usually wear jeans and a polo or something like that. If it's cold I'll wear $100 polo sweatpants. I figure it can't hurt and so far when they have said they cannot accept a coupon it has been very politely and most of the time they actually try to help me! I have not had one instance so far where they declined a coupon and haven't suggested trying a different store or contacting the company that the coupon was "made" by.

That's crazy (in my case) as in regards to the CSM approval for over $50 for the OC coupons in my regards. I literally just made a run there and had $220 worth of groceries and stuff ... no problems with the cashier at all or CSM when I handed her the stack of coupons. I just watched it go down all the way to $6.07. Total Savings: $213.93 I got that "Wow" look and comment from her but other than that no problems.
Different story with HC coupons. Any free coupon or one for over $50 has required a CSM and they have always been a pain in the arse for me there but I got my fair share of free electronics from them. :) Walmart is a terrible corporation who treats their employees like dirt...I'll take as much as possible from them.

OK so few questions.

At WM if the coupon is over $20 SM is required...

How about the self check out, what the limit on the coupon?
Say i use -$20 coupon, at self check out, Will that require a manager to jump up and help?

And Purple Lotus, So i noticed there is like new VISA Gift cards for $30 and $50, that are Birthday cards.
Think we can get a coupons made for those, for an update.
I am also interested in American Express $50 gift card coupons.

And ALL the $25 and $50 Visa's are out at my WG.
But there is bunch that are 0-500$ Visa cards, how can we beat this system? Is there a way to make a coupon for those.


Man, if the generator would allows us to create higher amounts, I would do this myself. But I cant, and I'm not going to complain again.  ;D

Yep but it was quick and painless....just smiled at me,turned her key and walked off. The contest I'm talking about would be total $$$$ saved....percentage is cool too but different stores have different prices so i think it's just better to state what PL saved us,shit I know some of his coupons work legit at walmart for OVER the price of the items so that would be unfair to say...WALMART fucking PAID ME to take their shit,lol

LOL man that is great! Shrek yu amaze me with your ability with the HC and OC! Great stories always and your kindness is a great quality to have.
Whats up peeps?
The plan for tomorrow is to try and get 600.00 worth of coupons spent. Then I will have almost my whole year done for dry goods and household items. We are spiting it between 3 people and hitting it hard. I am buying a freezer then I am hitting the meat and frozen foods for that next time. SO much fun cant wait. I can never sleep when I am anticipating a big run.

Yes 600.00. But I do have help so that makes a HUGE difference. Will let you know how it turns out tomorrow. I am sure it will be fine as usual. Maybe I wont have to go to the sore for a while except for milk, bread and eggs. The funny thing is now that I have all my good food I am even losing some weight with the protein powder and fruit. I mix frozen fruit, milk, juice protein powder and a really good powdered vitamin and man that makes a huge difference. I mix it in my off brand bullet blender. I need a coupon for a new one. They are like 27.00. This coupon stuff is addicting.lolI think I may even hit Whole Foods sometime soon. YOu said they have some good stuff there?

LOL! Sounds like you are headed out tomorrow? Okay we will compare Sunday evening. I have to figure out how to load a pic without the GPS coordinates embedded in it. Do you  know how? I was told not to upload any pics without removing some kind of info. Does that only apply to cell phone pics or digital cameras as well? I am only doing OC.

Has anyone used the visa 'pons for the cards with the concealed barcodes? So far every store that has self checkouts around here only has those kind. They have a strip on the package that is pulled of at purchase so you can't match the barcode with a coupon.

If I can find a store with self checkouts that I can buy cards from I'll go apeshit on them. SC attendants don't give a fuck as long as they hear a beep and they're too busy helping morons who can't work the damn things.

I found out that you can peel back the strip and you'll see a long series of numbers... if you can five the exact 5 digits in a row anywhere in those numbers then you are good to go. Like 99366, for example, if that's the coupon you have with you, and you find those 5 numbers under that tab, then simply grab the same card without the tab pulled back. You actually only have to pull it back a tiny bit.

PL I looked at this and was thinking that but after looking closer, the bar code in on the back corner of the card. Just look real close. Hard to see when your nervouse but I promise if you look it is on there, in most cases you shouldnt have to peel back the strip. Please confirm. I remember telling you the same exact thing and the woman showed me I was wrong.lol

Okay fellows I went out today and spent 8.00 and change and saved way over 200.00 dollars. I had enough coupons that I only had to pay 8.00 and change for the 16.00 and change in tax. Basically all my food was free today. Headed back now again to do over 100.00 so I am half done with the 600.00 goal for the weekend. I will be more specific when I am done and if you want to see receipts I will gladly put them up when I rid them of the GPS info.

Thanks PL for everything. I say it all the time but I will say it again. THIS IS THE BEST DEAL ON SR HANDS DOWN AND A WAY TO MAKE MONEY FOR NOVICE SR MEMBERS. That is why I send beer money to PL every time I can. PL LOVES BEER so hook the brother up! He does a lot for us and at least we can do is keep him in beer money and send him some business. Dont forget to help the needy people who deserve it. He needs some BOOMERS from Catfish!lol

So now these pricks ask for ID then scan all of your informtion without asking if they can do that! I didnt sauy scan my ID. She asked for my DOB and I said it and then she wanted to see the ID to verify my DOB and the bitch scanned me. BS! So what happens to that information once they scan your ID? Is it just checking DOB on the program or did they steal everything about me and enter it into a system that can flag me later for something else or compile a database of my purchases? WTF is this for? I cant understand? I ma an American not a fucking slave!I take my Rights my creator gave me really seriously and I do not role over to fascist and criminal scum that have fcuked all of us over. Sorr y for the negative outburst but this really hit me to my bones. I love my country but I hate my government tyrants that push this type of shit to make people getting use to submit to their BS.

I would venture to say most likely it is only reading data, not storing it.  That would cost a lot more to maintain and risk alienating even more customers.  That said, why not consider a fake ID from a vendor here?  Use the free Visa -> BTC -> Fake ID.  Sure wish I could afford a killer fake ID.  What I really want is a passport, SS number, birth certificate, the works.  Can't afford that shit though.  I digress.   :)

I apologize friends for my rant. I am really sorry I went off. I just hate things like that and I cant stand people invading my privacy especially when I am obviously more than 18.

The good thing is they dont store it and it is used to verify age only, so no worries. I hit them for 300.00 nearly today and I am getting up extra early tomorrow to hit it again.

Saved $15 on ********** store with OC, great!

HC collection....epic fail...

Tried Shell 50 card on WG, Transaction invalid, wrong barcode. Told me to go to shell.
Tried -$20 Visa card at Circle K, Invalid transaction, wrong barcode.
tried -$20 Visa card at 7/11 Invalid transaction, wrong barcode.

Went to WM for Kuerig machine, scanned perfect, SM came over, look at it, said hold on, Called District Manager, she checked comptuer and made phone calls. Came back saying this is Counterfeit, and sorry, cant do it.

FUCK ME. I am starting to have negative thought about buying this HC pack...
Look at the back of those cards and match the UPC. The codes are hidden in plain sight and if you are in a hurry you wont see them. It will work if you hit the right store brother. Hang in there, do a little recon and make a plan and you will be glad you did buy it. It takes a little more effort than OC obviously but you can do it man! Check the UPC first. Its on the back on the corner of the cards before you pull off that strip.

BTW I used a BK free whopper coupon that I changed the date on today and worked perfect. Easier than the gift card. Two free whoppers is fine with me. Dont like fast food too much but its fun.

See bro, but I did check. I just want too see if they would atleast Type it in, and let it go anyways, but o well.

Thank you for the confidence boost!

Everywhere I go I see diffrent barcodes, Everywhere,
Only walgreen has the ssame ones, and they work, but the whole $25 and $50Visas are GONE, Whole Rack is GONE. I wa slucky to find one. And even that didnt scan, girl was nice, and overwrites it.

O even tried CVS today for Shell card, wrong barcodes there too. Told me to send it in to the company... Fuck

I PMed PL and begged him to add few more different barcodes for the Visa's, I told him I will even pay for his effort. I would do it myself, but there is a limit on the generator.

I love OC, and combining them with the actual store cuopons, I walked out with alot of free shit. So Im happy.

I just want to go HC balls deep, and I am getting denied left and right, because of the barcodes, thats it.

PL, Please consider my request. I will pay you bro. Please  :-*

I agrree with you here man My WM has all different visa GC codes but the BK and Subway all match. The visas work at Walgreens when I used it. I would like to see those UPC changed as well.  A lot of people buy the holograms for the HC items and that does help. The you have PL that can walk in a store give them a black and white HC coupon and pull it off.lol The thing is when the new HC come out you have to be Johnny On The Spot before all the kids run to the stores with them. i think you will do fine. It takes some pavement pounding sometimes after they been out a while. Have you tried the Xbox, Dr Dre Beats? Those worked flawlessly for me at WMart. I want to see PL put a phone number or website verification on them but i imagine that would take some doing.lol He is good people and I am SURE he will blow our minds again when he comes out with new ones. I love the OC and make consistent cash with those. Like getting a pay raise but when you hit an HC and walk out with an Xbox or another TV from Kmart then it really feels good.lol.

NO PL, you got me all wrong bud.

I appreciate what you have done for me. Saved me a shit ton of money on daily bases. Even added few of my favorites, after I asked. Thanks.

And no, I was just getting mad, cause I got DENIED all day, lmao. I like the HC pack. I am going back, and trying again, and again.

I do NOT want a refund dude, at all. This is great.

All I wanted was some more Barcodes added. Im sure it would take you like 5 minutes to do it. And everyone will benefit also.
I would sit there and edit them, and add codes myself, But I have no clue how, Thats it....
So Im just trying to come to you for help man.  :-\

And Im totally with you on the generator thing.

It doesn't take an inch off of PL's awesomeness. Good point bout the generator

Yeah, I just kinda lost my cool. Was angry about something and just let it show.

but the reality is that a HC generator would destroy this community faster than anything else could... and would put the personal risk I am willing to take at a point I would simply feel like I was pushing things too far. I'm pushing things far enough as it is.

PL,
So, so much for that kid coming back with the custom made coupon we asked for. Been what like 2 weeks now? LMAO.
At least we brought him to the spotlight.
These scammers come in waves, but we take that bug spray, and TTTSSSSSSSSSS, out they go.

I'm completely with you about a HC generator PL. The secret to success is to blend a mix of substantial savings without going overboard. I think you have done quite well so far in finding that formula. People who bash the corporates for greed and then complain about why PL doesn't just make unlimited HC coupons for all the barcodes and all the varieties of cards, well that sounds pretty hypocritical to me.
 I don't think anything is misrepresented by PL and it's made pretty clear the HC pack is much riskier than the OG pack. It's also something that has been around for a while now and has had tons of success. I remember early December when we were all coming with stories of 4 Visa's here, 6 more there. Anything that can still be grabbed now I would consider a bonus.  Hell, PL even put the HC pack on the shelf for a while to let things settle down. As with anything it's buy/use at your own risk. 
Basically I'm getting to this. At what point do you put your own greed in check? This shit has saved me thousands. I'm sure it's done the same for lots of you.  To me it's about preservation, not instant gratification.  There's been a few times I've been set to grab a card and the only thing that didn't work was the coupon. It sucks.  Move on. There are so many ways to make cash with these sets that if only Visas are the focus of your attention, you're doing it wrong.  The harder we hit it the more prone someone will be to stopping this.  I think it's in a nice spot now where we will all be able to have a nice long run. I don't know about you, but I don't want to go back to how I used to shop.

I get conflicted sometimes because I know the day must come where this must end. I thought we almost lost it when I was banned that time, but I was reinstated quickly and it turned out the end had not yet arrived. One day though, the end is going to come and I will no longer be on SR anymore selling these. You mentioned greed, and if I don't ever reach a point where I decide it's my own time to pull out, then ultimately two things will happen. S.R. will stop me, or LE will stop me. As this becomes more and more stressful on me, and I can see it is affecting my real life and preventing me from progressing in other areas, hurting real life relationships, etc... well, I start to feel like it may be in my best interest to be the one who pulls the plug, rather to ride this thing out to the end of the road (no pun intended) and see where my car happens to crash. That's not where my mindset is at today, but I know one day it will be in my best interest to make my exit on my own will.

You must be making good money though?
I guess its better than dealing with IRL customers at a store, or changing oil 200 times a day. :)

Do you have a side job?
or is all your attention focus on coupons and customer service?

We love your work!

I dont think this will end,
as long as you got the generator running, and have a way for us to transfer money for Credits.
We will never be stopped.

Post by: purplelotus on February 03, 2013, 09:17 pm
Yes, I'm making good money for sure. I'm not trying to complain at all, but I'm also a full time student and have a full time job. SR vending is my side job. If I could focus all my attention on coupons, SR, and customer service... I can't even imagine where we would be today... hahaha, but unfortunately I cannot. If SR was my only thing going on, I would not at all be happy with my current level of production and service, but since that's not the case I just do the best I can with it and try to make sure when someone buys something from me, they are always satisfied.

At some point something will have to give and assuming I don't get arrested for starting this, I have a promising life ahead of me even without my SR income.

For now, I'll just keep pushing and doing my best at work, school, and here on SR.

Full time job while full college is nearly impossible. I have to do either one, or the other. Cant both.
And then you have to do this (SR), and answers all the PM, and questions, and requests.

Woo great success today! Didn't use selfcheckout this time. I failed the first time at a self checkout set to not allow "free" coupons. Using a cashier, like purpleloutus has said, is the best option. It's a lot easier to manipulate a minimum wage employee into passing your coupons than a machine. ;)

Make them feel like they would be wrong not to accept your coupons!

This is a lot of fun. I got payed to take my food from the store today. Thanks PL for your work in keeping these updated and the brilliant idea in itself. Generator! whattt you da best.Trying to get some coins for the HC and shall give it a try.
Peace!

Yesterdays Stats:
Neighborhood Walmart- 60$ for 350$ worth of product. (First trip, it was sloppy. Total Practice Run)
Superstore WM- 15$ on on 170$

Today:
Walmart 300$ worth for $3.57
Walgreens: 30$ for 9 (Cigs, batteries)

Every store was super easy and nice. However the walmart I hit today the savings were insane. The CSM was called at the end of transaction. Then a even higher body. The CSM was obiously jealous and tried to tell the higher up that they were similat to some water & coke coupons that had turned to be fake months ago and had apparently cost that particular store quite a bit. So in all I have got 900$ worth of things for my family for about 100$.

PL, when you update the coupons and add to the OC will they update from the same https address or will you make a new address for updates? Thanks ahead of time, plan on purchasing the HC soon!
Also if you ever have to shut down shop have you considered leaving the address up for the OG customers or will you get rid of it completely? Just curious.

about the link changing or not... We literally never know. i don't know. If your link ever 404s then just message me. In the event that I ever had to exit, I would not only leave the link up but I'd also update them through Dec 2013. Someone else would get the bright idea to take them and relist them I'm sure... And this is by Design for me. Good luck to the person who man's up in the event iI ever man down. It's not like i would exit for no reason, but regardless someone would pick it up and that's good for me post retirement. I'm not going anywhere any time soon. no worries

Dude Awesome! So I don't know how deep you guys have got into discussion about it but. Im paying in cash, with my face on camera, vehicle plates on cam, and walking out. If they did legally want to look into this and prosecuting what would happen? How deep could shit get? I mean I obviously dont use the same stores over and over but I know today they told me about a previous coupon fraud that looked similar to mine for coke and water. She said they turned out to be fake and the store lost a couple thousand... So I can confirm that WM does check the statistics for their coupons... By store. If the store is losing money big time I can see them pulling the receipts, finding the exact times, cameras, license, then me... Thoughts?

I just looked in the CIC database and the California Pizza Kitchen shows up there.  Supposedly it's been in the database since the end of November so I'm surprised we haven't run into issues with it more often.  I guess you just can't use it on high dollar binges where they'll check against the database but rather use it at self checkout and lower dollar transactions.

As soon as you noticed that its has been added to SIC website, notify PL immediately, guys!

That way people wont get that WM, "Sorry the coupon is counterfeit" speech.

PL, how do you solve these issue?
Do you make another new barcode and Price for the Pizza coupon?
or should we just stay away from the coupon, once it has been flagged?

I bought 10 of those in the last 2 days guys.lol. Stop worrying about CIC as if he has ANYTHING in CIC he will fix it ad it will not be in CIC now.
No one is getting into trouble and the only thing your doing is being somewhat negative on the forum that we need to be fcusing on positive stuff like spending 600.00 worth of coupons in 2 days.lol Just go have fun!

The 6 that are supposedly in there have probably already been redone! Why are you guys going on about this? You have 100s of coupons that work and you focusing on 6 that probably have been fixed or updated. I have had ZERO problems with any coupons. DO NOT GO TO LOCAL CHAINS AND ONLY USE CASH!! If you do these things you have nothing to worry about at all! These coupons are the best things since hydroponic weed! If anyone should know how they work its my ass! How many have you used? I uses about 600.00 this weekend and if they didnt scan at target then they scanned at WM just fine. Pizza, Water all of them even my woman's tampons.lol

Thats not true at all man. I bet your looking at an old one in CIC. I did a huge binge and had zero trouble! So to say that may discourage others from doing what I just did this weekend. If i didnt know better you would be making me paranoid.lol So if you THINK there is a problem you need to message PL right now and get it straight. be positive and be careful not to scare new customers off by saying stuff like this. Hell I cant even fit anymore food in my house right now. I had to give some away yesterday to the old woman next door to help her because I dont have room for it all.

Dude, chill.  I think you misunderstand my intent.  I'm not saying don't use them at all, but rather be warned you may get called out; particularly in a situation where they're going to look closely.  I'm also suggesting it may not be a good idea to use several at once. 

More importantly, it's the buyer's option to use these however they want; I'm only helping point out information people may not be aware of which may affect how they choose to use them.  If they want to be cautious, that's fine.  If they want to go on $1000 splurges, that's fine too and more power to 'em.  In the end, it's better to be informed than not.

Just to point out though, I compared the pizza one (downloaded 5 days ago) side by side and they were the same as far as I could tell with only the expiration date being different.  I'm happy for your savings and lack of trouble; not everybody has had the same success so please don't insinuate that everybody else's transactions will also be so fortuitous.

Its just sometimes, when they do show that they are on CIC, you get a "Counterfeit" speech from the manager.
So mix and match, with normal coupons, and shop away.

$600!!!
Dam, these stores are being siphoned by you. Lmao.  ;D ;D ;D

And Thanks for calling the coupons to the attention,

They are just trying to help, and keep us safe.... Thats all.

PL has helped me and if I did have a problem I would PM him and let him know before coming on here and talking about it. He takes care of stuff super fast if that is the case with those 6. I have seen it before and it is something he needs to be told and in about 10 minutes he would have it fixed and they will no longer have his active coupons on there and we would have a fresh copy of those 6 coupons or he would just say they are working dont worry.lol

Post by: FramedAgain2222 on February 04, 2013, 05:22 am
To clarify, I don't have a problem with the coupons at all, which is why I didn't and still don't feel the need to message PL screaming bloody murder.  As an example, the CPK is one of my top 10 favorites - I've used it a LOT in the time I've had the OC and I'll continue to use it until I'm way too sick of it.  Going forward, I probably won't use several in one go nor will I put it in my cart when I expect to knock off $100, but I'll still use it as is.

The only reason I even looked in the CIC was because of a prior posting saying that it was rejected because it showed up in their database.  It's still the only one I've looked up because I'm just too lazy to look up the OC.

Long day is right!

Don't get me wrong guys, We went out today and was able to pick up $140.00 worth of weekly grocery's for about $7.00 and used 25 coupons.  EACH AND EVERY ONE SCANNED WITH NO ISSUE most if not all were done with the Generator!!!!!!!!    The information on CIC and the other comments about general safety I think are important.  The more information we have when going in the better we will be prepared for questions or confrontations.

On a side note and somewhat relevant to yesterdays discussion- the couple in front of us today probably in their late fifty's were purchasing a box of nicorette - the cashier indicated she needed ID - the man asked "why to verify who I am?"  she said no to "verify your age"   at which point the entire line broke out in laughter at the absurdness of this request!   The man complied but not before telling her what a stupid request this was!   Of course this was at our favorite french store!

Hey White.

Dont worry Bud!

1. If they asked you where you got em.... You say Internet.... Or Online.
2.if they ask what site, tell em BIGSPOT.com (You had to answer surveys for hours!) they will bite that one.
3.Or Couponmom.com, and say your mom is a crazy coupon lady, who gave them to you. ( works everytime!)

Yeah, they got your face on camera. Not a big deal.

But remember you have to play and act like YOU ARE A VICTIM yourself, of a fake coupon!
If anything is denied...say...
"Dam That sucks, Im sorry for wasting you time" ....works like a charm.

And if the manager ask you, tell em # 1, 2, or 3. The only thing they can tell you is " Im sorry Sir, but we cant accept"
There is no punishment.... they are not going to spend $$$ to track you down.
There are millions of fake coupons, and its just another day for them.
They want to help you!

Stay calm, this is a game! and you are the winner, show them that poker face!
I can see you had an amazing day shopping.... WOW, very nice.
Now do a a U Turn, and go to Target mauhahahahahaha.

b. What coupons in particular are working best from the HC.
c. What gift cards coups are the best working.

I plan on making the long haul tomorrow with the HC to a bunch of stores and if you guys will tell me what ones are working in HC the best I can kill it & report back with full stats. I can guarantee that my source (the buyer/couponer) a old lady will be able to get anything as long as her confidence is boosted from hearing others stories. I know I know read the thread but I actually have skimmed through quite a bit. So if someone could roughly list the best working HC that would kick ass for everyone in the long run.

Thanks X! One last bit of advice I need, Im trying out the HC  very soon.
I need to know
a. Which Stores are working best for HC.
b. What coupons in particular are working best from the HC.
c. What gift cards coups are the best working.


I just got the HC pack also. But I have been doing some research on our threads.

1) Kmart first( I heard they are the easiest for Electronics)
Walmart second for electronics.
Target doesnt accept coupons over $60, computer locks up.
Walgreens for Free Visa's, -$$$ OFF Visa's, Xbox Live cards, and also Free Food gift cards ( I think Im going to try those tomorow,)
CVS is also for Visa's, -$$$OFF VISA's, and gift cards.

You can try  Keurig machine coupon at Walmart, but I got denied last night.
You have nothing to loose, but time. I suggest you try every Walmart on you way for electronics.
and same for WG stuff, every dam store! then wait few days,a nd try again, lmao.

2) PS3, Xbox, Xbox controllers, PS3 Controllers, Head sets, Food Saver, and Xbox cards.

3) Visa's, Xbox Live cards, Free Food cards, Xpress cards.

Dude, chill.  I think you misunderstand my intent.  I'm not saying don't use them at all, but rather be warned you may get called out; particularly in a situation where they're going to look closely.  I'm also suggesting it may not be a good idea to use several at once. 

More importantly, it's the buyer's option to use these however they want; I'm only helping point out information people may not be aware of which may affect how they choose to use them.  If they want to be cautious, that's fine.  If they want to go on $1000 splurges, that's fine too and more power to 'em.  In the end, it's better to be informed than not.

Just to point out though, I compared the pizza one (downloaded 5 days ago) side by side and they were the same as far as I could tell with only the expiration date being different.  I'm happy for your savings and lack of trouble; not everybody has had the same success so please don't insinuate that everybody else's transactions will also be so fortuitous.

No, you won't be called out, because no one really looks at the CIC's website. Not once in my year of being on silk road have I had a customer come to me and say a manager or anyone ever used the term "CIC". As often as my coupons are used lately, the best service I can provide is that I will try to do the expiration updates sooner and in that process, it's just easier for me to do expiration date changes and complete changes to all the offer codes... which is the only identifying information on the coupons. That's the number after the UPC on the databar. I'll change 100% of them all at the same time, I don't need to be messaged every time something ends up on the CIC website. We will just refresh them all at once, that way anything that may not have been reported to the CIC but is still out there in circulation doesn't get reported and I end up in this vicious cycle of being messaged everytime. We will just refresh them all at once and I hope to make time for the enxt set of expiration updates this weekend, even though it's not quite close to that time yet, might as well just wipe the slate clean. Now obviously I can't updated every coupon and change it's picture... but all of the identifying numbers that aren't universal will be completely wiped clean and new and unreported, even if the ones already out there get reported after the fact.

Manager's will tell you "yeah, these are fake" simply because they know fakes exist and not because they went on the CIC's website and studied them. They won't cause a coupon to ring up "invalid" either. Managers can either be laid back and cool or just willing to tell you any story to get you out of there, but this rarely ever happens to anyone with the OC. Every now and then it does, but that's usually just your way of knowing you need to go to other stores, because it's very rare if it does happen, and managers are often as quick to bullshit you as you are them, if they really suspect something.

I think my point can best be made by your followup comment...

To clarify, I don't have a problem with the coupons at all, which is why I didn't and still don't feel the need to message PL screaming bloody murder.  As an example, the CPK is one of my top 10 favorites - I've used it a LOT in the time I've had the OC and I'll continue to use it until I'm way too sick of it.  Going forward, I probably won't use several in one go nor will I put it in my cart when I expect to knock off $100, but I'll still use it as is.

The only reason I even looked in the CIC was because of a prior posting saying that it was rejected because it showed up in their database.  It's still the only one I've looked up because I'm just too lazy to look up the OC.

Long day is right!

So no worries, since it's become a topic of concern, I'll address it 100% across the board, just to elevate the worry any of us might have. Asking me to keep up with the CIC's website every week, simply is not possible for either me or you (as in everyone) to keep up with. Does anyone want to redownload all the files every week, or even worse, just have me list them all as single files... we are talking about hundreds of coupons now, so this is no easy task on anyone. I have a completely clean set of expiration updates and all other distinguishable codes changed promised soon, I'll try my best for this weekend for sure. So that should pretty much put this to rest. It's the only logical way I can handle keeping up with the CIC. If the CIC actually had an effect on whether the coupon worked or not, in any way at all, obviously it would be more of a concern and I would actually work harder to update them every week, but then I would have to charge for that extra work... Actually, wait a second, you've saved how much money? and still want me to put how much work in? How about I make a new set of completely clean coupons every month, and you can purchase them over and over again? We could just change the way pricing works completely and that would solve everyones issue... but if you don't want to pay me any more money, then you'll simply have to accept the best service I can provide you all with. Besides, I promised I would never do that to my customers, I just feel like sometimes some of you need to be reminded of what you paid and what you gained... and of course I love getting messages and try to honor requests the best I can, but understand I'm human too.

@estacydude: I feel like it's about time I show you some kind of appreciation to you... you just did a phenomenal job of answering his questions, when in reality... those answers can't even be provided since it will be different in every area, but still you gave great answers to broad questions... from now on I don't think you'll ever have to purchase anything I list in the future, just send me a message and I'll take care of you on any other future listings. It's an investment which is clearly in my favor, so I'm glad to offer you that.

When you do your GC's and electronics do you try to limit it to 1 per store or if the store takes the 1 do you try to get as much as possible?  For instance, I have near me
4-WM
2-WG
1-CV's
1- Target

You think I should just try to pull 1 per store from the HC collection? & if my visa coup gets denied would I be safe to try to use a different one in the same store or send someone else in later?
Sorry for all the fucking Q's... At least Im a member of the 500+ saved club thanks to PL!
Title: Re: Vendor: PurpleLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on February 04, 2013, 07:09 am
Thrills me to hear you are a member of the 500+ club, for real. The personal answer from me is that I never try more than 1 HC coupons at a time, and I almost never hit the same store twice (if I achieve success). If I use a HC coupon and it's successful, then I just go on to my next store... if it gets turned down, then I'll probably try again on a different day with a different cashier... but I have heard stories of people pulling off multiple HC coupons all at once, but it just personally seems too risky at that point to which I think I could be successful at the attempt and not get turned down.

Large stores like WM and Target I think you could hit a little bit more often, but I still wouldn't do it more than once a month with a HC coupon. Now with OC coupons, I just simply don't recommend doing it more than once every two weeks. If you go to Target and saved $100+ in coupons, well that cashier is likely to remember that it happened for a week or so... not that they would know any better, but don't take the chance of putting the idea in their head that something is seriously wrong when this same guy comes in every few days with those kinds of savings.

I also feel the need to put this out there to everyone.... this comment is not directed towards w.o., but let's take a step back and consider how many special requests I receive from people at this point where I'm this deep in this thing... people who paid a very low amount compared to the hundreds or thousands of dollars in savings they have achieved, and are still asking me to make changes that enable them to make even more... well I do my best to do what's in our communities best interest, but if you want me to do something because it's in your best interest **shakes his tip cup** otherwise you have a long line to wait in. It baffles me when someone saves hundreds and hundreds of dollars, knowing the savings will continue to add up every week, and then asks me to do something for them, without them offering to do anything for me. I strive for 100% customer satisfaction NO MATTER WHAT, but come on... are you not satisfied with your purchase? If you feel like you want more, than send some money my way and I'll suddenly be much more motivated to spend my time honoring requests, otherwise my only focus is in the big picture and how to help us all as a whole and keeping things good for the most amount of people moving forward.

Dude fuck all these people that have complaints PL, what your doing for your price is FUCKING BADASS. Anyone that complains should be rovoked. There is a difference between offering opinion and complaining. You have made your money, clearly. But, we have saved ours. For us to ask more of you after we have made an initial purchase for something is kind of wrong in itself. Im sure everyone understood coming in that this will have to stop ONE DAY maybe 30 yrs from now hopefully, but until it does I think you should try you best to keep everyone safe and updated, as that is your duty when offering an ongoing service like this, YOU ARE DOING EXACTLY THAT. You are on a 1 or 2 man show as far as I can tell and you are doing splendid. My family eats, lives healthy, suppports pets, and children have a lot more benefits because of this man.  Im sure PL is doing his absolute best and would never hesitate to get his customers the very best service. He get's his $ just like we do, hard work, hours in front of a computer. & in the end it's really for us to spend 100$ in return we prosper for months!

NO PL, you got me all wrong bud.

I appreciate what you have done for me. Saved me a shit ton of money on daily bases. Even added few of my favorites, after I asked. Thanks.

And no, I was just getting mad, cause I got DENIED all day, lmao. I like the HC pack. I am going back, and trying again, and again.

I do NOT want a refund dude, at all. This is great.

All I wanted was some more Barcodes added. Im sure it would take you like 5 minutes to do it. And everyone will benefit also.
I would sit there and edit them, and add codes myself, But I have no clue how, Thats it....
So Im just trying to come to you for help man.  :-\

And Im totally with you on the generator thing.

Not sure what happened while I was gone but I'd like to say that I suck at HC and I tell people what to believe for a living lol.
I would like to see PL help out a select few of us who are willing to slip some extra btc under the table his way.  It seems the HC market is flooded and only the most seasoned veterans are seeing significant returns.  The OC is so amazing that I pay for the price of the HC every time I do some serious grocery shopping.  I've slipped PL a coin, but he deserves volumes more.  As soon as my vendor account is successful, I plan on contributing to PL's education.  He might spend it on beer, but as long as he's staying in school that's fine with me ;)

Anyways guys we all have tough days.  It's 5am and I'm getting 3 hours sleep tonight as I work on freeing people who's worst crime was making the world a more interesting place for all of us.  We all must make sacrifices for the cause of liberty and prosperity, but in the end we have to remember that we are all on the same team.  The winning team.

Yeah, I just kinda lost my cool. Was angry about something and just let it show.

but the reality is that a HC generator would destroy this community faster than anything else could... and would put the personal risk I am willing to take at a point I would simply feel like I was pushing things too far. I'm pushing things far enough as it is.

Is the generator still available?  I haven't had a chance to try it yet.  I super appreciate you doing that, though!  Are we allowed to share our creations in the OC download you provide?

about the link changing or not... We literally never know. i don't know. If your link ever 404s then just message me. In the event that I ever had to exit, I would not only leave the link up but I'd also update them through Dec 2013. Someone else would get the bright idea to take them and relist them I'm sure... And this is by Design for me. Good luck to the person who man's up in the event iI ever man down. It's not like i would exit for no reason, but regardless someone would pick it up and that's good for me post retirement. I'm not going anywhere any time soon. no worries

Someday I think there might be a small team devoted to the innovation you've shown us.  I'd be interested in being on that team.  Staying one step ahead of The Man is fun!

@bigndn-I F'ing hate Wmart and that corporation. I went on a HUGE rant on about page 40 or so that was pretty intense haha so don't stress bout that. I hate them even more after my last experience....here's how it went:

Went there dressed nicely from just coming from a job interview. Had about 29 coupons that were worth $196 when added up. I always go with my list with the amount next to it in....once I get the item...cross it out in pen. I've gotten pretty fast at getting items and making sure to follow all guidelines. Decided to go to a register with a young girl that I thought I had no doubt I could charm:

1. Handed her the coupons and loaded my stuff on checkout-no problems as she looked through it and was like "wow I wish I had these!"
2. Instead of just swiping all the items at first like usual, which I expected, I'm positive she meant to scan items as well as coupons out of order. I purchased two items without coupons that totaled $7.
3. She even went to manager for 5 mins. and got OK.
4. Continued to move very slow as I helped her put stuff in bags and was nice and apologized for the inconvenience...even tho she was the inconvenience.
5. She tells me "Your total is $71.00"....no f'ing way young lady. I asked for the receipt. I see a bunch of items jumbled around and the coupons all over the place instead the usual organized print out I've encountered everywhere. Her little friend comes by and watches and tries to get in on the situation.
6. I'm very very good at math and numbers, pulled out a piece of paper and located each coupon applied to each item and amount on paper. Not only did SHE NOT give credit back for a lot of items that were worth more which I shoved the policy in her saying so...but she tried to sneak in about 5 voids of coupons!! I couldn't believe it.
7. My math resulted in a $14 total...WITHOUT the credit for coupons worth more than item. I pointed it out to her and her friend as I watched her quickly slip the coupons in the cashiers box (ARE YOU KIDDING ME!!) Her friend goes..."We can redo all of this over at the guest services spot with another manager if you'd like...by this time is 9:45 pm and I'm losing my cool. I looked at my watch and said "I don't think so...I don't have time to get you two in any trouble with your manager, then again I have time to walk over there and show her the "errors" you made in "cashier voids for coupons". Their eyes bulged...she pressed a couple buttons and said "oh I forgot this coupon....taking $35 off my total". Right.
 I'll take it to avoid any drama and I literally didn't have time for this BS. Paid the forty something and split with steam coming out of my ears.

Now the cashiers are corrupt? I'll be visiting the next towns chain and make sure to bend the store over like a prison fish in the shower. No homo.

Regretfully, I have been informed that Klipp will be resigning from the coupon game in order to pursue better opportunities in life. This will also mean we are collectively retiring the .onion coupon generator. I left the choice up to Klipp and he decided it was in the best interest of his personal safety not to let me take his work and continue with it on my own. I wish this was not the case, but I certainly hold no hard feelings towards him and neither should anyone else. I respect his decision and wish him the best of luck in his future endeavors.

The credit listings are now down, but now I have to address the issue of those of you with remaining credits. Klipp has agreed to allow the site to stay live until Friday evening, in which time you will be free to use any many credits as you have left between now and then. Anyone who has credits left that they paid for on Friday evening, will be given a full refund for those remaining credits. If you want to request the refund now, that is fine too. I wish this wasn't the case and I certainly apologize to anyone who this inconveniences. Klipp has been gracious enough to return to me enough money to cover his side of the refunds in advance, and depending on whether people burn up their credits or ask for refunds, Klipp has already handed over the money back to me to cover him and I must admit that shows a lot of class.

This is disappointing news, of course, but one thing I promise is that I am not slowing down anytime soon. Goodbye Klipp, and again good luck! Even though we didn't really make any money together, we had a fun time not doing it. :-)

I agree The Advocate.  I would love to get a "team" going and work with PL.  We could "slip him some % coin" to work with us on different HC items.

Does anybody else have experience making money with these coupons?

Today I used the OC coupons without any problems.

Of the HC coupons here is what happened:

1 subway card worked at walgreens.
The other walgreens and CVS wouldn't accept the Visa Cards.
Walmart wouldn't take the dre beats headphone coupon.

Can't even complain.  I will have saved the cost of the coupons within a few days of just using the OC.

I will try again tomorrow.  I'm ecstatic from my first day and know that I will get some HC's to work.

My idea is to try and get some items like the Keurig, Sodastream, and Roku.  Trade items like those in for something like Ipad mini at best buy.  You can sell those all day on craigslist.

I've heard of other people selling things like beef jerky on ebay.

Anybody else have experience making money with these coupons care to share some tips/tricks?

The only other thought that I had would be that maybe it would be a good idea to get some HC coupons that are for only half off.  That way more stores would be willing to take it.  If I got 30 - 50 dollars off a 100 dollar item, I would be able to make a ton of money by constantly flipping things on ebay and craigslist.

PL you are the man!

I recently made 450 that is in my account. It took a week of planning...a team of friends...and it worked out well. I will update tomorrow on further details as I don't have time now as well as the approval of PL. Also, not to be greedy...but this was a well thought out plan that took hours and a weeks prep to get it done properly, safely, and no trace so I don't kno if I will be exposing it on the forums.

Holy crap, I had the same problem kind of. The CSm came up and tried saying they have had frauds so on and that I had to redo my whole basket since I had free items and more than 1 item of the same coupon. I left my whole 300$ basket, proceeded to the next WM & raped 150$ worth for 23$.

Nearly in the 1000$ savings club! I also third on the team part about helping PL in return giving him a % of OUR profit.

On the bright side, Shrek, I have now freed up more of my time to work on more brilliant ideas.

What about selling our giftcards at something like www.plasticjungle.com?  It seems like its easy to get the Subway and other cards.  Could we sell them or is that risky?

Can you do it? Sure... Is it a risk? Yes. Probably very minimal, but I have no clue how that site works, which might mean I'm underestimating the risk by saying "minimal". I'm certainly sure, yes, is the correct answer though.

Just passed a few more HC coupons (all gift cards) at various stores. Went 3/5 today so not bad and once again it is all how you handle yourself. I always have a story for the coupon I'm going to use and not once has any cashier or manager said they were a fraud even when they dont take them. Its mostly store policy. I passed a chik fil a card at CVS so don't give up hope there. There policy is supposedly no free gift cards but if they dont go to the manager you're golden.

I still have yet to try the bigger coupons, guess I'm a bit scared but the most they can say is no

I've never heard of such a crazy thing happening netipots... have you tried leaving your cell phone in your car or something? GCs don't set off the alarm, because no one would possibly steal them, since they have to be activated, which means paid for, to work. Nothing found on a GC is capable of triggering the alarm. Unless they started putting those metal strips inside of cards in your town for some reason, which again makes no sense.

I'm going to push this one far into the "myth" category for now, as I don't want it to concern anyone... There must be some other kind of explanation for this occurrence. I've been to stores that the alarm broke and went off when anyone walked through it... it was hilarious and an explanation for something like this, even explains why no one stopped you.

Hopefully no one was dumb enough to do this, but I just got this PM

Hey. Maybe you can help me out. I am in a little crunch financially right now. Some of the coupons in PL's HC coupon pack could really put me into a better spot financially. I messaged PL and asked if he could sell me just he HC coupon pack without purchasing the OC pack first. And he could not do that for me. Which really upset me.
I only have $60 worth of bitcoins in my SR account. So I was not allowed to purchase the listing from PL. Here is the message where he denied me. http://i.imgur.com/ajyMhTY.png
I understand where he is coming from, but he doesn't understand that I have people who depend on me and a child.

Would you sell me the HC coupon pack only if I paid you the Bitcoins? Please do not tell PL that I am asking you.

Thanks.

It came from 123kid420 and as expected he as no posts and no history. Obviously I told the dude to fuck off but I just wanted to give a heads up since he's probably spamming everyone in this thread hoping to get lucky. I hope no one here is dumb enough to do it, but you never know.  I'm don't mean to rub anyone the wrong way by saying that, but it's easy to think you can do it and no one will ever know. TRUST ME, someone will find out. Eventually PL will and you don't want to be on the wrong end of that.
