Title: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: purplelotus on April 05, 2013, 04:14 am
 8) I'm starting this off myself so that everyone knows they can trust this thread and it will always continue on the promises I made. GoldenLotus has agreed to my terms to make sure everyone that purchased from me continues to get free updates. HE will carry on my work and I am forced to bow down. I said I had one more post left, and this is it. I regret to inform you that PurpleLotus has now retired and is going to step away for awhile. I wish everyone the best.

<3
PL



Edit:
For anyone interested in reading through my now locked and retired review thread to get an idea where this community came from, go here... This starts at 300+ pages after I began vending, the old testament of couponing is long gone.

Much love PL!

GoldenLotus, welcome! Cannot wait till you are ready to begin operations and see what you bring to PL's legacy. What new coupons will we have? What discussions will we have? What new projects might come of this? Sad to see PL go, but excited for this new chapter in the history of SR!

Purple Lotus.

You should have warned us about taking down the coupon website...

I personally only saved 4 of the 9 files in the new OC.
And 0 files of the whole new pack.

I was planning on finishing tonight... until Ive seen that's its a  404 message.

Please! notify GoldenLotus to restore the website, with both of the packs.

Fuck! Please Man!

Its like I was given a Ferrari, and it was taken right back to the dealers lot :(

If so, feels unjust to me. but like the class act he is, he stayed true to his word thru the end.
+1 to him, hope he will get all the RL karma he deserves and +1 to GoldenLotus for stepping up. Hope this thread is 50% as awesome and 100% drama free

Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: GoldenLotus on April 05, 2013, 03:17 pm
Hey guys,

The past is in the past. Let's let it go and move forward as the wonderful community that we are. While PL will no longer serve an active role in the vending process, he has agreed to stick around while I transition into this role. If you have previously purchased from PL, then you will have to message him and get verified so that you can get the stealth listing that will guide me in the process of forming who all already has rights to the collections.

I would get that message in sooner rather than later, as it is unsure that he will be around for very long, in which case I'll be on my own and the only way for me to verify you as a customer is to have you answer some specific questions to prove things. For now, the easy way is to contact PL on SR. Make sure you message him on SR as it will be much easier on him.

It's rather thrilling to have this fresh start in our community, and I think we are truely entering the Golden age of our community here on SR. Listings will go up tonight so that those of you who have been patiently waiting to purchase will be able to.

Thank you to everyone who has welcomed me so far! The plan moving forward is to keep up with the same customer service that PL provided while avoiding the same mistakes and pitfalls he fell into.

I will be writing a much more extensive guide on this thread very soon that will eliminate many of the FAQs that new or potential buyers ask. It's long overdue. The first rule of Fight Club, NO drama. If they bring drama to us, just ignore it. Do not even acknowledge it. This is not what we are about, and I know for a fact PL regrets dearly not adopting this policy himself.

GoldenLotus

@whiteonwhite: You can talk about PL and his collections, as I am in fact picking right up where he left off and those listings will be up tonight. PL has retired and will only be answering messages for a limited time, but we will never forget him and I'm sure he will be a subject we always talk about here.

@ecstacydude: PL regrets he did not have the foresight to warn people, however he has been working hard along with me to make strides to put plans into place to cover his promises in his absence. Message me on SR, like everyone else, and once your previous order is verified, you will be given a stealth listing for the exact price you agreed to pay for the current links and your future updates... 0 btc.

By tonight both listings will be back in place for those of you who did not get a hold of the listings in time. If you waste my time with claims you own the collections and it is reported back to me as false, then you will not be eligible to purchase them. When he stops assisting me, then we will switch over to a question based method of verifying you were one of the OG's.

 8) 8) 8) If you have your old links, then pasting them to me in a SR PM is all the verification I require.

Post by: handsoap on April 05, 2013, 09:02 pm
LOL  totally forgot why were here... The coupons :)

Well, let me be the first to review OC in the new thread (2 pages deep):
THEY WORK!!!! had a basic run after a short hiatus, new link, new dates, new prints. all OC that I used work. some, like the tide, pampers, glad bags flag the cashier, same as before, just kindly tell the cashier to try the other barcode.

I feel like everyone on PL and now GL's threads bought it, enjoy it and just come on here to bullshit around :) If anyone hasn't bought these, run and give GL your money before it's gone again LOL

As for HC, I feel like I've gotten all I wanted from it and feel like most of it is too hot. I'm sure they still work 50% of the time and if you have not bought these yet, it's an amazing high when you score 1 (or 2-3 in a day) but I'm pretty much done with it.
I can't wait until the Lotus comes up with the next original series. The Golden age you say?

Special gift for the first 5 orders... one down, 4 more to go.

For those of you grandfathered customers waiting on a verification, it should be later tonight when my next round goes out after it is checked for accuracy. PL is out celebrating his late birthday which was on Monday when he could not enjoy himself. Everyone be sure to wish PL a Happy Birthday and say your goodbyes. He will have advice for those of you who already have done business with him.



***Monday was April fool's day***
Just having fun, I'm not really mentally challenged to say something that foolish. :-) None the less, wish the guy happy birthday. I'm sure we missed it somewhere.

Thanks visahate, thats def the reason, i thought i was going nuts.  I remember someone talking about locations., PL was talking about having a site and everyone logging to avoid scum who share this shit on scum sites. I've been to certain places where shit is wiped off the shelves and it makes it very obvious.  Then we're there like a deer in head lights. Thats bad news. This IMO needs to be worked out soon. Hard to say location I understand 100% we have to think of something. PL took alot of his/her time to find all of these coupons on 4689638963948 different sites and put them all in a package for us. Its much appreciated. I am fucking feening for a WII-U and Super mario game and nintendo land lol im itchinggggggggggg anyone find one yet or ;)

OK! Well now that I'm a member of this elite club. Is there anything I need to worry about? On the OC collection do you need to check UPCs or anything? Tempted to just jump in and go, but wanted to make sure I am not missing any major "rules".
Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: sysco88 on April 06, 2013, 03:15 am
Well I don't know about rules but some suggestions:

Stick to the big three walmart, target, kmart  typically better results than regional stores

Make sure coupon upc matches upc on product. 

Many recommend paying cash, and opinions vary on how much to do within a trip, go with your own comfort level. 

Save money and repeat. 

Throw Lotus a tip from time to time for your amazing savings.

Wait a day, read the forums... there are many tips here that will help you avoid csm interaction and possible rejections.
But basically yeah just print N shop. Start off slow to build confidence, try not to draw any unnecessary attention to yourself, dress nice compare upc etc.
It is also wise to know each store's coupon policy

Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: handsoap on April 06, 2013, 04:06 am
I'm amazed that we haven't had anyone from the retail industry post some knowledge here. There was a guy who claimed to be a CSM on the other thread but he disappeared.
we know by now that OC is golden (hehe) and 1% ends up on CIC after a year and is still ignored by most locations.
Does anyone here know anything about the big pharmacies LP? Allegedly they visit the stores that are hit hard with HC
and now they send out THAT email on a weekly basis so even if you're the manager who doesnt give a fuck it gets hard to ignore.
I know they use the phrase "no coupons for free gift cards" often so I can suggest the unpopular idea of $10 off any subway card instead of free $15, or $20 off whatever. might be worth a try. I know some people still pull these off with good % and like I said I stopped using these when I SAW the emails for 2 major chains. Just an idea

Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: GoldenLotus on April 06, 2013, 06:34 am
Ok, handsoap. We will do that in the next set of HC additions. Unfortunately, my hands will be more than full this week as I establish myself, but I'd love the idea of getting started doing updates by next weekend.

I also want to right a FAQ or beginner's guide. It could easily be done by just quoting you guys.

"basically yeah just print N shop. Start off slow to build confidence, try not to draw any unnecessary attention to yourself, dress nice compare upc etc. It is also wise to know each store's coupon policy"

The first series of 5 digits on the UPC of the item must match the coupon, with the exception of the K-Cups and HP Ink coupons, those will fly on any version of the product regardless. If you grab 20 items, and one of them has a different UPC for whatever reason, then it might give you an issue. So when starting off make it a habit to check. After awhile you will be buying the same stuff over and over again and the days of checking will be long gone.

Start off small.

Don't go to the same store with a hand full of coupons more than twice a month. This is mainly because the cashiers will start to recognize you if you allow yourself just to go in multiple times in a week.

Yes, L2D, it is addicting. The savings are great, but I think it's well worth the price of admission for just the rush alone. No doubts.

Nice catch on the cash thing Sysco, I should write this all out before I make any more sales. I still need to go list the HC collection, but I only have like 40 more messages to get through. Going to be a fun night, my first day on the new job!

clearnet: http://www.walmart.com/search/search-ng.do?search_query=mountain+house&ic=16_0&Find=Find&search_constraint=0

They make meals while camping sooooo much easier and they're surprisingly tasty!  Plus, they have a five year shelf life so you could stock up for years!

I'd be happy to throw you some coin if you could do it ASAP.

I wish you the best of luck here Golden,I've messaged PL to send confirmation to you that I've purchased everything ever made by him,lol
It is bittersweet.....but if he vouches for you,that is good in my book.
On a side note to answer your question,I hope it's louisville and syracuse....that will be a good one.
Fuck michigan though,I have a bad feeling about them.
Can't wait to see what you are working on for new additions!
Thanks for stepping up to fill the need by the way.
PEACE and +1 to ya.

Just a heads up, both horizon milk coupons ended up back in the updated pack.  The one w/two milks on it is the one that had issues last time, I believe. Use the one with 3 to a page unless anyone knows if the other has been fixed?

This is a great idea! Send me a PM and tell me more about the sizes, prices, etc in your area. I have never noticed this product myself but will go check my area too and if we find them all over then I'll make one right away.

One thing is for sure, there is a ton going on right now, but if we are to begin this new chapter on the note PL would have wanted us to, then it must involve NEW COUPONS!

@shrek: I think Michigan might best Syracuse, but I said that about the last two Syracuse games too.

@Dev: According to my notes, the reason that happens is because both PL and RX made their own version of that same coupon. It was the day they realized neither one of them wanted to be doing double work, so they made a system so it never happened again. However everytime expiration updates would come along, RX would resubmit his same Horizon coupon and PL would not notice and then we have two Milk coupons again. Thanks for pointing that out, with me taking control I don't think we will see that happen again.

So, I was just checking out Walmart's coupon policy and for internet printed coupons it says that you can't duplicate them...  Well, yeah.  But what about PRINTING 4 copies like you can at Target?

Usually I am gone for a week and there is a new wave of people that have purchased the packs and are having fun sharing their success stories and so forth. It's expected every time I do chime in I will see more new faces then old but I wasn't expecting a change in the Lotus anytime soon.

 In that sense I'd like to say, "Thanks PL for everything you have shared and provided us with and may all your future endeavors be great. A wise man always knows when to fold" and "Welcome to the community GL, and although I am confident you aren't quite new at all, this is a different position so things will be interesting."

As for everyone else, HEY! Long time no see. Keep couponing

The way that rule works is not very well understood by the employees or the customers. One time I was at work and found a coupon on a smoothie king promotional site that was for a free smoothie. It was a real coupon. I told my coworker about it, he signed up and we both had coupons for free smoothies, which we printed out and went to claim. They said they were duplicates, even though I know they weren't. I explained the situation and they eventually gave us both our smoothies. The fact is, coupons can be duplicated on a copier easily, and they have no way to say if you did or did not do that. We could have gone ran off 100 copies of that smoothie kin coupon and all 100 would have worked. It was a real coupon.

I would think you would be just fine trying the limits at walmart, some people might say "cannot be duplicated" to you... but that same thing gets said to people who are using 100% real coupons and aren't using duplicated coupons too when they have multiple of the same coupon printed offline.

Just talk some magic and you'll get whatever it is you were going for if questioned.

Welcome Golden Lotus!

I'm a bit behind on the forums but I PMed you. Not sure if PL is available but I think my PM will show that I have bought both the OCs and HCs and dominated them. People on this forum may also help with reassuring I have been around on (two maybe three lol?) of PLs threads now with stories of success. Let this be a new chapter of success to all! Cheers! :D

Having spoken to Purplelotus, I believe his successor is a competent and knowledgeable man of questionable morals and a penchant for mischief similar to his predecessor.

Does anybody who's been doing this for a long time still get nervous when you're about to checkout? It's not so much about wondering if the coupons will work (I know they will) it's more about how the cashier will react. Usually the cashier won't give a damn but I still have those butterflies anticipating the worst lol. I haven't made that big run yet but I've been working towards it. Hit two Walmarts today and bought some more scholls inserts and hanes socks. One bill was 15.50 and only paid 1.20, the other 9.48 and only paid .48 cents. One thing I always said I would do if I ever become a millionaire (besides two chicks at the same time) would be to just buy a bunch of new socks and at the end of the day throw 'em out and put on a brand new pair. Thanks to PL and now GL, I can cross off that goal and focus on becoming a millionaire haha.

So, I was just checking out Walmart's coupon policy and for internet printed coupons it says that you can't duplicate them...  Well, yeah.  But what about PRINTING 4 copies like you can at Target?

I have run at least 6 and possibly as many as 8 Horizon Milk coupons at Wal-Mart in a single transaction. "Can't duplicate" simply means you can't clip them from the paper and photocopy them. Internet coupons can be printed as many times as you like.

I do rarely get a bit paranoid at checkout. When it happens it is really bad and I have to cognitively calm myself down and remind myself I have done this hundreds of times with very few problems, and never  anything that was not minor.. Congrats on your first few runs! I have also had the same dream of wearing new socks every day. I have settled for throwing all my socks out about once a year and buying about 5-7 packs of identical pairs so I never have to worry about mismatching..

Stone cold serial killer demeanor, every time. Get your mind right before you ever enter the store and this will never be a problem. Remember, you are an "extreme couponer". Watch the show, look at the type of people that actually do this. They are hunters, they are sharks, they are fierce competitors that will not be denied. Your blood, sweat, and tears went into this endeavor. This is your money and you should act like it.

70% of body language is non-verbal! If you feel nervous....then rest assured you're behaving nervous! These nervous mannerisms raise subconscious red flags in those around you and make them much more likely to question your authenticity. It also makes them automatically assume a position of authority. Don't ever let a lowly Wal-mart cashier, the jerk in line behind you, or the CSM become the authority figure. Own it from start to finish. I had a CSM tell me that they had someone use fake Beats coupons and I STILL got her to use my Beats coupon....

I did get a bit nervous one time when a manager followed me out into the parking lot to take down my license plate number....but even then I laughed it off...

Post by: zeke on April 07, 2013, 05:08 am
Went around to pickup some more gift cards today.  This was probably my worst run so far.  I used to have no problem getting 50+ giftcards over a weekend.  Today over 4 hours I managed to get 6 total before calling it for the night.  If you've read my posts in the past you know when I go for cards I usually spread between stores within a 300 mile radius. 

Walgreens was an absolute no go for each and every gift card attempt.  I also noticed at several walgreens they no longer are using the 99366 variety, and rather the one that contains 7.  These walgreens are all walgreens that I've hit before and they used to have the 99366.  2 of the walgreens that I went to had a picture of the newer "Free $100 Visa Card" coupon that had FAKE wrote across the top taped to the register.  This is the first time I've seen this one from the newest batch of HC.

I tried going to Kohls since I thought someone a while back suggested them for gift cards.  I couldn't find any of the 99366 variety though.

K-Mart couldn't get the Red Lobster, or Applebees to scan for some reason.  I know it wasn't the coupon itself because I was able to redeem them at a few other stores.  The second K-Mart I went to as soon as I walked in I saw a cashier that I went to a few weeks back and she made eye contact with me several times for pretty long periods of time so I just left for my own safety.  Last time I went through her register I snagged 3 food savers and they ended up paying me close to $50 to take the food savers.  So I have a feeling she knew what I was up to.

Walmart is the only store I had success with, but even then it was limited.  At one store I had no issues whatsoever, in fact this was the first time while using the Free $25 gift card coupons that when they scanned the coupon it popped up as -$25, instead of Enter Coupon Amount.  Which I think helped with pulling it off, as they tend to question it a bit more if it asks for the coupon amount.  The second walmart I hit each coupon I tried popped up with some really weird error on the register that I've never seen before.  The cashier stated that they had just updated their system and so that may be why it wasn't working.  I know a few months back we had issues when walmart ran an update, hopefully this isn't similar.  The last walmart I went to said that they could not redeem "Manufactuers vouchers."  I attempted to explain that a voucher is a coupon, but by this point I was exhausted and didn't feel like arguing so just walked away.

Overall not the best day, but once it was all said and done me and some friends got to eat close to $100 worth of Red Lobster for free.  We also have a stack of Applebees cards for later this week.

They 1000% do. I went to one to try and get a red psthree where I spoke to a manager and he was telling me all about their custom barcodes called EBC. Their previous name was electronic boutique (C short for codes im guessing ) Then I went to another one because I thought he was bullshitting me and spoke with another manager that told me the same exact thing. Speak to manager they really dont give a fuck lol even they know the corp are scum

thanks for that info zeke...im always curious to how people go about the gc....ive had terrible luck...only tried three runs but out of 10 stores ive only gotten a a gas card and one of those 40 of 50 visa...
You got 3 savers at 1 time at kmart? i bow down! hahaha i guess its time for me to try one of those...what paper did you use? i just grabbed some card stock and the hc looks alot better on it, ive only tried the beats in ear on card stock so far and i never felt nervous passing it, csm tried a few dif times but it only rang up .01 cent do you or anyone else have any jedi mind tricks for this?
i guess i could just get a foodsaver and take it back, but its not as fun as passing the coup for the beats...

also GL, i know you have a mountain of work to climb but the talk about the backpack food and yesterdays weather has me think summer...whats the chances we could get a summer theme release?
things that come to mind:

sun screen   ( i never use the stuff, but all my white patnas would be grateful)
Otterpops   !!!! its a summer classic round here
potting soil   that shit is expensive and re doing the lawn this year.this alone would save me $ and i would def tip for this

Weber Q...ive always wanted one...its the propane kind
coleman roadtrip...these are nice also
leatherman
any camping type stuff...bug spray, coolers, sleeping bags...

o and from the last thread Naked juice would be awesome

long live the Lotus!!

SR and Tor giving me issues so far, trying to get in so I can handle all my messages, hoping it works here shortly.

@zeke: I've often wondered and wanted to ask people who have been told about the e-mails in their area, at stores like Walgreens and CVS, exactly what their couponing habits were. It's strange how certain areas have issues while others seem completely fresh and untouched and unaware of the giftcard coupons. I figured one of two things was happening. Either a national e-mail was sent out and many stores did a poor job of training their employees or getting the memo to their managers, or it has only been regional emails sent out in areas that are having an issue with the problem.

I think if you have been able to get up to 50+ giftcards in one weekend over a long period of time then first of all that means these things work very well. Good job! Although it may be that you caused every store in your area to get notified of the issue. The HC collection will be listed sometime today, and my question to you, zeke, is what would you like to see added into the HC collection now that giftcards are not working as well for you?

They 1000% do. I went to one to try and get a red psthree where I spoke to a manager and he was telling me all about their custom barcodes called EBC. Their previous name was electronic boutique (C short for codes im guessing ) Then I went to another one because I thought he was bullshitting me and spoke with another manager that told me the same exact thing.

The answer is that Gamestop is a franchise which is privately owned by individuals who can decide for themselves if their store will accept coupons or not. This means you will just have to go and ask if you really want to try a Gamestop. I would try to go in or call in and ask, and then when you know the answer, later on go give it a try. As far as their personal coupons, it would be possible to decode them and redo them, maybe it would even be simple, like a math problem that takes 30 minutes, but it still is something I'd avoid doing from a risk management point of view, because it's so easy for any manager to get corporate on the phone, and Gamestop knows exactly what coupons Gamestop makes.

The same applies to Gas Stations in the sense that some won't and some will. Some chain gas stations will universally accept them or not accept them depending on who makes that call for their company. You will just have to ask or try.

I can't remember the last time I felt nervous about a shopping situation, but one feeling that never changes is that feeling you get when you have a successful trip and the cashier hands you your receipt as you exit the store.

One thing that is certain with this thread like it was with the previous threads we had, is that people reading this thread for the first time will be confused and have questions. Could I ask that a couple of the old school members of the community briefly explain to a new SR user why they should make the decision to buy this listing. The current state of affairs for a new user on SR is that they are more at risk now of buying a rip off listing that will disappoint them until we are able to establish that this is where the awesomeness is happening now. Even when we hit 100+ pages again, these first few pages will always be critical because the first 5 and last 5 pages is all someone is likely ever going to read.

Thank you all, SR finally seems to be working, so now I have 40 messages to go tend to. I would expect we will have some major announcements coming this week. we have a bunch of ideas and good things going on right now. Last week was filled with announcing bad news, this week we will make up for it by having some really good news to present.

First post on the new thread.

First off I'd like to welcome GL to the family. It's very sad to see PL leave, but at least the legacy is living on through a new vendor and supplier, and eventually a full fledged member of the family (once he proves himself to us all :P). I have sent my verification message to PL, so looking forward to hearing back about it soon.

I cannot wait to see what GL will bring to the table, and if all goes well he may even see a nice tip from myself and a few others that bought from PL. :D

Now about requests for coupons. I like the idea very much of requesting coupons for use, because one person cannot think of everything on their own, plus different regions may carry different items. The only problem I see is sometimes it clutters up the forums. What would you guys think of a deepnet version of stack overflow or google moderator? Something where people can suggest and vote on things? Would make things a lot more efficient in my eyes. Clearly this is up to GL as he is the one taking requests. But I just had that in mind and thought that'd be something that might work better.

Again, looking forward to seeing what you've got in store for us GL. :D

I've been using these at least 1-2x/week since last summer.  I use them at most of the same stores over and over again, yet still never have any issues, and have saved tons of money.  The other guys selling a mix of clearnet coupons that are mostly on the CIC website are stale as hell.  They're a lot of coupons that debuted on SR w/PL a year ago, and even at that point they had already made the rounds on 4chan among tons of other clearnet boards.  I think anyone who has purchases these will back me up that it's a no-brainer purchase and will pay for themselves ten-fold in their first week or two, just use them responsibly!

I can say for 100% certainty that the OC is the best thing you could do for your family.Ive been having fun with it for the past few months with only minor trouble one time, but all that was on a stupid cashier and not the coups.
Ive pulled up heaping baskets and saved over $250 in one run with no problems!
i can afford stuff i never could before like good razor blades and juice! I have been able to help out friends and fam, even a complete stranger pushing a stroller...there is no words to how you will feel giving a stack off diaper coups to a stranger in need ....its the best high on SR!
 im not good with computer stuff and thought there would be a learning curve and there wasnt...simple print, clip, and save...its that easy!!

i would pay a couple hundred for this...i saved 40 on my first trip so its impossible for it not to be worth it.
add free updates and its the best thing on SR hands down!

edit: im going to be best man in a upcoming wedding and im throwing the oc down for wedding food saving them a couple hundred for sure! More for the honeymoon!

HC is a little more YMMV , but its still worth every penny

i just tried a foodsaver at the K but it range up -.55 instead of the -100
i tried the coup on the decoder on my phone and the upc does ring up just 55 cents but the databar was fine and rang up 100...my Q is has this happind to anyone else and do all stores have the ability to scan the databar one? im not sure why she didnt scan the datbar one, that one would have been just fine but she gave up after one scan im guessing it scaned the upc one?

The gift cards are getting tougher and tougher, it was like printing money there for a while.  Yep the 3 foodsavers at once at k-mart was me being cocky and it honestly should have never gone through.  I cannot remember if I printed on card stock or the heavy duty high quality glossy photo paper from red river.  I am thinking it was the paper from red river, can't remember which one off the top of my head, I know it was like $0.50-$0.75/sheet.  I used holograms along with putting the food saver logos on the backside of the coupon but I brought the opacity down a bit so it blended well.  I haven't tried the current foodsaver, but its possible there may be an error with it.

@zeke: I've often wondered and wanted to ask people who have been told about the e-mails in their area, at stores like Walgreens and CVS, exactly what their couponing habits were. It's strange how certain areas have issues while others seem completely fresh and untouched and unaware of the giftcard coupons. I figured one of two things was happening. Either a national e-mail was sent out and many stores did a poor job of training their employees or getting the memo to their managers, or it has only been regional emails sent out in areas that are having an issue with the problem.

I think if you have been able to get up to 50+ giftcards in one weekend over a long period of time then first of all that means these things work very well. Good job! Although it may be that you caused every store in your area to get notified of the issue. The HC collection will be listed sometime today, and my question to you, zeke, is what would you like to see added into the HC collection now that giftcards are not working as well for you?

The weird thing about the emails that I saw at Walgreens were both at Walgreens that I've not been to before.  At one of them the manager said that the president instructed them not to accept any coupons for free gift cards.  I don't truly believe him, but I do believe it is probably a Walgreens wide email that goes out.  Maybe some stores managers aren't on top of it as well as others and don't check their emails as frequently or print out the emails.  Who knows...

It very well could have been my coupon habits too, but the way I run the HC ones I'm not entirely sure.  I tend to travel a good distance when running HC.  I try to get at least an hour away from my current location before starting.  I go with a group of friends and just massacre every store possible and usually make a day of it.  Usually starting around 8:00am and going until close to 10:00pm.  Like I said we tend to drive great distances to hit stores that we know we haven't hit before. 

As far as suggestions for new HC items, I am not entirely sure.  Most of the items that I get I rarely use for myself.  Most of the time I am just getting as many as possible and then flip them to make a decent profit.  Coupons that are less than $50 off are my favorite as they don't require the CSM at walmart.  Also items that have a high availability of others wanting to purchase said item at close to retail but maybe a few dollars off.  I really would like to see a $25 or $30 off any "insert brand here" blu ray movie.  Get a blu ray for free, then go flip it for $25.  Do this with 100-200 movies and you could make a nice little profit over a month.  Other than that I would really like to see a 80% off any bitcoin deposit through Blue Sky Traders or something similar, actually put this at the top of the list if you could!  Haha but really I am not entirely sure I have been moling over what the next big money maker could be and I can't really think of one at the current time.

A couple of things I would really like to see, that wouldn't be a money maker, but things I would have a use for are:
Children's board games, board games in children, children's toys, and activities
Camping stuff, tents, chairs, blow up mattresses, stoves, etc...
$6-$7 off any Sterilite container
$5 or $6 off a 3 pack of EcoEarth Coir


Also I am pumped to see what this new listing has to offer!  You already got my money in queue!

  ------- As a Veteran member of this Board let me tell anyone and everyone that this is the real deal.  I and my girlfriend are both amazed over and over again at the little amount of issues we have time after time.  We are both confident that the services we buy here are well worth any cost and really the return on your investment is 10 fold.   The response from GL and the overall community support here is top notch.

That all being said we are in!!!! Pre-Order IN!!!!!  Can't wait.

First weekend under the new regime and all Hail the Lotus's!  LOL   Went out to our normal spots and had a great run with a total haul of about $300 for a little over $40.  Dropped in to Walmart and because last week we had a strange error message decided to only try a few.  Actually ended up getting into a supervisors line who was very nice "but" the second coupon actually jammed the computer!!! LOL after several attempts and about 5 minutes she asked me to move to another line!  And when the CS rep looked at the coupons asked the Supervisor well these are more then the products!  The supervisor nicely said yes thats ok just scan them through and as long as they go no problem!  So although Walmart has been a bit grumpy over the last few weeks with the computer updates we still had a great little run thanks to a very wonderful supervisor!  LOL

While being hand picked to take over the lead of this community was quite the honor, having the numbers next to my name to support the crown is the next benchmark. In just 3 days we have managed to get almost half way there. Can we, in just one week, become the top rated coupon community when the mark to beat has been here for over a year? YES WE CAN!  8) In less than 3 weeks can we break over 300? YES WE CAN!  8)

Waiting on a few people to get back to me, and we will have the brand new listing officially go live. It will without a doubt be a very fun and awesome listing and with it's nonprofit status, the question is "What will we do with all of the proceeds?"

While you must be a previous customer to preorder the new "The Coupon Club - Submission Lottery" listing, this will not be the case once it goes live! New customers will be eligible to join in on this listing.

More to come... stay tuned!

No way was I touching that spread on the Louisville game the other day. They barely won that game, but I'm pulling for them tomorrow!
I know we are all getting tired of hearing about it, but watching Ware break his leg in the game before last was some sick shit to see on TV. I think they easily walk away with the title.

In coupon related news, we already have $120 (minus SilkRoad fees that keep this place running) in the pot for the debut of the new Lottery and that's just prerelease! It will be a recurring, once a week lottery, but one thing that will never recur is having to purchase the listing more than once.

We need to explore the optimization and compression of the files also.

I talked to PurpleLotus at length about this. There is an easy automated way to reduce the file size of the entire collection by 70%! I now do this myself every time I download the files... Hopefully GL takes this up.

OK,

GL when you get yourself adjusted.

Please, Start pumping out a new update for us.

Large amount of new food items coupons is very necessary.

I personally had a 10 item list, that was wanted by me on PL list before he left.
Some people agreed on my requests, so I got an Idea.

Maybe you should create a Post on this thread called "Update Requests"

That way we can compile a list of all the items (SR) wants.

***Example***
I say we need... Lays Dip coupon.
So If 3 other people are..... also..... like Yeah, Yes, Need that.
Then we add that item to the Request post, and make a 1), 2), 3), 4) Request list.

You do your magic, and we wait patiently.  ;D

Does this sound any good?

Post by: GoldenLotus on April 08, 2013, 05:45 am
Go ahead and send me a message with your requests if you don't mind ecstasydude. I'll start compiling a list and make sure they get addressed in the next set of updates. Releasing new content ASAP is one of my top priorities to establish myself. Everyone who has purchased the listing can send me a PM with any requests, and I can test myself to see if I can live up to the challenge.

The sooner your requests get in, the more likely they are to be honored. Although I can't honor every request, I cannot overlook repeat requests either. Just send me what's on your list and if it's a repeat I will denote that to make sure it gets priority.

We should definitely get a separate forum going and maybe leave the one here for reviews, basic questions, etc.  It'll be easier to keep track of topics.  It would also leave this one less cluttered and chaotic (in the event of a few pages off-topic  ;D) so people with pre-purchase questions & concerns don't have to try & sort through 50 pages looking for their answer.  Of course, we wouldn't abandon this one at all, after all the vast community here is what cements some decisions to buy & start saving ridiculous amounts of money.

Examples of separate topic threads - Coupon suggestions/requests, homemade submissions for critique, methods & locales.  I'd even go so far as to have one or two people collate the requests into a weekly list so GL doesn't have to check on it every day.  Maybe even set up voting polls on a few items.

I think the thread would take a bit of time to maintain but should be worth it just in terms of organization.  The link to the forum could be included when someone purchases the collection.  GL and the chosen mods would even have the ability to block or ban people who start flame wars.

Shoot. I can't even find Cafe Bustelo in cans anymore. Just in the cheap packages.. I have an updated Neutrogena.. Pretty sure I got it before the change. I never had a Nestle Water one. Which collection was it in?

Post by: overlap on April 08, 2013, 08:59 pm
Ok, So finally a review after i got my 50 posts.

The OC collection works great. The only issue I have was the Neutrogina and the Oxy coupon would not work at Walmart, but worked fine at Target. No big deal.
Would like to see some more products. Maybe some other type of coffee, like the instant coffee (Nestle) Some other food items, like buttermilk, butter, Cheetohs... Maybe some house wear items, power tools that they have at Walmart.

Now for the HC collection. My friend and I made a weekend out of it and went out to see what we can do. We scored  5 of the $100.00 gift cards all from CVS. Ride Aid denied so did Walgreens. Funny thing about one of the CVS's, the manager called the district manager and he approved. We tried the $50 gift card coupon at Albertson's and they denied and freaked out, I was in a different line while my buddy tried doing it and they were watching out the window when he left to see where he parked and where he was going. Kind of funny.

Then we tried the Xbox full page $150.00 off the 4GB model, got denied at Kmart and Walmart. The World of Warcraft coupon scanned as invalid at 2 Walmarts and 2 Targets, the Subway card scanned invalid at Target. The Shell gift card has a different UPC out here the one that starts with 7. And last we tried the Xbox full page wireless headset $30 off and that scanned as invalid at Target as well.

Great review of the coups.

I would like to see Cheetos as well, but I think there are multiple Cheetos coupons on the CIC database, so might want to watch out for that crap make sure it looks different.

Lucky that the district manager in your area is a dumbass, I've had no luck at any CVS or Walgreens with the gift card coupons in my area. Guess it all depends on how suspicious the workers are.

I'm not sure about Albertsons because we don't have them in my area, but I know Target doesn't take coupons that are for a large amount off. I've had no luck with any of the HC coupons at Target. They always scan invalid. The OC ones work perfect at Target and I've saved a shit ton of money on groceries though. Target's coupons all have different UPC's than the ones at Walmart (as stated in the previous thread).

The Xbox full page wireless headset has worked for me at Walmart, so you may want to try there if you really want one. :D

What I've noticed is the Visa $100 GC has a different UPC everywhere. CVS, Walgreens, Walmart, Target, Randalls, etc. I have yet to find a UPC that matches the coupon.

Maybe the bustelo  has been blocked at both locations that the coupon was used. Ill check at a few other locations..

****FALSE ALARM****
The new cafe bustelo from March/2013 UPDATE  hasn't been tested. Seems that the last cafe bustelo was blocked right around the time of the expiration.

I'll test the coupon in the next few days.

Looking forward to the new era GL. I've been couponing for about a month with the OC, not gonna buy the HC until it's replaced. A few recs:

1) That new Lysol Motion Activated Air Freshener :)

2) Healthy food items. I don't think I can eat anymore frozen food.

3) As a music festival Goer, tents, air matresses, that food storage bucket that someone also recommended, sun lotion, etc.

4) I also second coupons for small items things that can be flipped easily like Blurays.


Can't wait for the lottery and your new additions!

Oh yes. I do see that. Only reason I mentioned Morningstar was because I knew they went hand-in-hand. I went to the freezer a few hours ago and saw Boca and got the idea for a coupon on these.
Didn't even double check for the Morningstar just typed it down knowing they are right up there with Boca. :P

So Boca coupon as my request then. :D

Seems no expiration was coded in the barcode on a few.

You can download a coupon barcode decoder from the App Store and check if exp. dates are hard coded without testing them at stores. The decoder is free, but limits you to 5 tests a day or pay 99 cents to do unlimited testing.

Just splurge and drop the $.99, if I could I'd make a free App coupon for you, but no need to be such a penny pinching couponer. Look what we started, got people not even wanting to spend 99 pennies now a days. So spoiled! HAHAHA JK

@bigndn: no harm no foul, but let's keep our PMs private along with file names which may or may not have been used. You can let the comments stand, but I'm just throwing a caution out so we don't give up too much information to that point that I can no longer distinguish between a real customer and someone who data mined the forum.

Really hoping to release details about the new listing today, but still have one more thing I need to deal with before proceeding. The sooner I get this done, the more coupons I can make for the additions to the current collections also.

A lot of talk from me so far, but it's time we see some production and exciting new things.

The coupon tools allows me to make any coupon I want now. Glad that was posted after PL quit selling and left. I was able to download the software and booklet and teach myself within a few hours to make coupons. I have made several so far and it is nice to know how to do this. It is a very simple program. Now I dont fear losing the links because I can make them. This is a great tool. I hope GL will offer it in the future for those who didnt get to download it free. I have made 10 coupons and all of them work perfect. AWESOME!!

I wish I could have gotten around to purchasing that from PL, but if GL decides to offer it in the future I'll be one of the first to buy. :D

Have you emailed them yet? Looks like you'll have to do some social engineering to get access. If you aren't doing it, let me know and I will. I just don't want too many people messaging them at once because that will raise flags for them.

good luck using your hp deskjet printing on that.  You can just use 24bond, the issue is the high gloss will require laser or a very very good inkjet with a specific ink(certain manufacturer) to print and not have smudges.

no one ever looks for a security mark lol.  getting the right paper is easy enough, just not cost effective because ink is not cheap and your coupons will be costing their weight in ink.  however for gift card ones it would be worth it in value but the cashiers who read the memo will still deny it.

Just be patient, new things are coming that make your $2 off Velveeta seem like a waste of time

I've been doing some looking into different types of paper and I ran across two websites selling paper for coupons. And one of them has the CIC Hologram on the paper. If we could get our hands on paper like this that would bring the HC to the next level.

I figured we'd need a good printer with good ink. Just thought it was worth sharing.

I've had cashiers (as well as managers) tell me they can't take it solely because it was a printed coupon and you can just put it on the scanner and get endless supply of copies, so for people like that I think it'd be worth it because these would in no way look like I just printed it out.

wraithe, you got some kind of insider info you're not letting us in on? :P

Thanks t4b for the mcdys, got the angus yesterday!! hahahaha

I had an Angus Bacon and Cheese yesterday myself. Had a minor issue, it was the second time (at two different locations) that they stated they do not give out Free LARGE combos. I had to settle for a free medium combo.. I wasn't hungry or thirsty when I was finished, just a little miffed that I didn't get my large fry and drink! Oh well, I have had them dozens of times! Greasy deliciousness.

I certainly applaud anyone wanting to eat 100 big Macs, but take it from this old McDonald's rat, I've spent my entire adult life eating at McDonald's, and a program like this one can do more harm than good.

I make copies of the free birthday meals from the local stir fry place here and by the coupons I should be about 215 years old.  but its a free $15 meal lol

I'm having trouble finding the foodsaver in the OC, I found the refills coupon but not the physical foodaver. Is it in the HC?

Is the Mcdonalds coupon a special coupon made by T4B or also in the OC? I may have misread...I do admit I've been scanning the thread a bit quickly.



THanks!

I know beggars can't be choosers but one coupon I'm surprised not to see in the OC pack is a coupon for Taquitos! They're microwaveable and a quick snack, similar to pizza rolls but bigger, better, and more mexican. The El Monterey brand is the best and they come in 28 count boxes of various types of taquitos (shredded chicken, shredded steak, chicken and cheese, steak and cheese). They retail for $6.92 at my local Wal-Mart and the family code is 71007. If there is not much interest in these, no worries, I've saved tons already and am grateful for what coupons we have.

While we're throwing out suggestions, I second the light bulb coupon too.

Also, can't wait to see what this Lottery is all about, pre-ordered and finalized early. If your offers are even close to what PL would offer, I have no doubts that this will be amazing!

May I ask why we shouldn't access the CIC website via Tor? Not like they can track us down via Tor that's the point isn't it? Are you suggesting that we just access via our normal unproxied connection? I'm a bit confused at your suggestion.

accessing say usps.com to track your package from tor raises flags because of the location of the proxy etc.  he is implying doing the same thing with the cic will raise flags.  but the cic isnt gonna correlate tor with sr

i can argue both cases.

accessing cic from home shows your interested in coupons

accessing from tor shows the cic that someone who wants to be anonymous likes coupons

i think we forget these are coupons and not illegal midgets we are trying to smuggle across the border

i think using tor is safer

Post by: GoldenLotus on April 10, 2013, 12:12 am
Scout is pretty accurate. What PurpleLotus said was, if someone pastes a CIC website on this thread, don't click on it. It was just a theory he had that if the CIC wanted to create a honeypot they could just make a special link and ONLY post it here and anyone who clicked it would obviously be coming from this direction. My suggestion was that if someone posted a link that was a CIC website, to just go to the main CIC website and then navigate your way there. It was simply me a thought he had one day when we were really high and thinking about "Hmmm, if we were the CIC then how would we catch us?" As far as whether he had any opinions on To Tor or Not To Tor... well scout knows his history better than I do. I'd say it's a lock to put your money on scout.

And honestly, in a sober state, I realize the CIC is obviously NOT interested in SR users even if they are aware of SR and PL/GL. Now if they are aware of this operation, then are they interested in me? I'd think so.

I have reason to believe the CIC has no idea what SilkRoad is and have never heard of us. I strongly believe that but this is not the place to have such kind of discussions. It's all hypothetical and if a real threat ever exists I'll be the first one to come on here and report it. For now, all is good in Coupon-land.

One question, I'm curious, Scout have you ever purchased and or get gifted any of PurpleLotus's coupons? I know he was the type of dude to just give things away to someone like yourself. If you say no, I am afraid I have to kick you out of this thread, as it's for customers only! HAHAHA JK WE ALL LOVE SCOUT. Scout has always been a supporter of all things awesome and making SR a better place overall. I have a ton of admiration for him. Without a doubt I'm one of the biggest scout fans on SR. +1 karma (Although I'll just have to right it down on a piece of paper on my desk until I am able to actually give karma)

Let's quit having this conversation and talk about coupons or speculate about the new listing or something funner. All this CIC talk is bad for business, and unnecessary when it gets this theoretical. We got hurt bad enough this week, it's time to turn things around and head into the future.

I just relieved the following message from SR Support:

"ACHIEVEMENT AWARD: You officially now have the only listing on SilkRoad where people can purchase it, then the next week the value of bitcoins can QUADRUPLE and people still say "Damn, I'm glad I made that purchase!""

I'm just kidding, SR Support didn't really say that, but none the less it's the truth. You not only make your money back, but you make it back exponentially much faster than the rate bitcoins have been going up. If you want to make a smart investment, invest your money in coupons before investing in bitcoins. It's projected to pay out much higher this year.

Color laser is the way to go for what we are printing. It makes text and barcodes a lot more crisp.  And really the paper above isn't the only option. Just go to a print shop and do your research. There are plenty of thin, glossy/semigloss (coated) papers that would match the look and feel of something you clipped out of a circular/brochure/cataloge or were sent from a manufacturer. Add a hologram and now you are set.

Large retailers have state certified full forensic laboratories (Target), the SS might not care but passing off coupons to in-house forensic labs to analyze when losses start to mount is easy.

The dot raster on modern day laser printers is really for blocking the counterfeiting of money. It's not present on most personal use printers; it's really for tracking fake money back to large industrial-scale printers.

With that said, you can never be too careful.

Thanks for posting the TinyURL. I think it's insane to use a clearnet link shortener on these forums; there's never knowing what's behind it.

The new review thread for the Coupon Club - Submission lottery is now created and can be found with preliminary details at http://dkn255hz262ypmii.onion/index.php?topic=145738.0

We expect to go live with full details tomorrow. Please do me a favor and devote 100% of your comments pertaining to this listing to that thread and do not discuss the Lottery or submissions on this thread as to not confuse new users about my real listings. The Lottery is a non profit and just for fun listing and the money will be awarded to those who submit. Go there for more details.

You can get cheap coupon paper that matches the look and feel of magazines or circulars that prints on either inkjet or color laser printers by clicking the clearnet link below.

**CLEARNET ** http://tinyurl.com/cd8xgkz (ThePaperMillStore)

Color laser is the way to go for what we are printing. It makes text and barcodes a lot more crisp.  And really the paper above isn't the only option. Just go to a print shop and do your research. There are plenty of thin, glossy/semigloss (coated) papers that would match the look and feel of something you clipped out of a circular/brochure/cataloge or were sent from a manufacturer. Add a hologram and now you are set.

Remember that almost all color laser printers in the US print faint marks that are used to ID the printer and serial # on every page. Initially to trace money printed on them for the secret service.

Large retailers have state certified full forensic laboratories (Target), the SS might not care but passing off coupons to in-house forensic labs to analyze when losses start to mount is easy.

Keep this in mind. Would ever happen? Don know. Dropping knowledge.

And the tinyurl is to: **CLEARNET ** http://www.thepapermillstore.com/exact-digital-white-paper-8-1-2-x-11-in-32-lb-writing-glossy-c-2s-500-per-ream.html

Oh snap, I forgot! Big special thanks to wraith for all his ideas on making the Coupon Lottery possible. Without his input, I wouldn't be doing this. Very helpful dude to brainstorm with.

We will forgive him for disliking the color purple, as I have heard he loves Gold.

HAHA I'm going to start a listing callled "Good ideas by wraithe" and charge 75btc for it. I'll give wraithe three whores of his choice off backpage or backdoor or whatever site he uses for every listing that sells... hahaha backdoor, I hope I just made that up! I'll also send him enough viagra to keep us in business no matter how many we sell!

He's a really smart and mostly good dude, he just lacks the good looks and charisma of a Lotus.

In coupon related news,
When is the next set of new coupons set to be released into the OC and HC?! Friday night. When will the HC be back up for sale? Also Friday night. When will the lessons be back up for sale? If time allows then Friday night, but let's call it Monday morning in the event I don't put on a LeBron James performance by Friday night. Wait, LeBron was PL's go to guy to reference, I'm gonna go with Chris Paul from this point on.

Hardcore collection.
It includes free gift cards and big savings on high dollar items.
I don't have the list on me, I'm sure GL or somebody has the list.

GL currently only has the OC and the Coupon Club available for purchase.

As many people have said, save your money until you get used to using the OC coupons because the HC takes a high amount of social engineering to pass off as legit coupons. I haven't had much problems with the <$50 gift cards, but the higher dollar ones take some skill.

I say we need... Lays Dip coupon.

Sorry if this has already been covered - I'm catching up on this thread - but, will the Lay's chip coupon not work?

For most things, if the first five significant numerals on the UPC match (and your cashier isn't a busybody who's checking the coupon wording), you can use the coupon for just about ANY product from that manufacturer, in most cases at least.  ;)

For example, I use the Kraft shredded cheese coupon for sliced cheese and even Philly Cream Cheese (also made by Kraft and has same first five UPC #'s).

Again, sorry if somebody has already addressed this.

Not sure if you've seen it (and I've never tried the product and haven't used the coupon yet), but PL2013_9 has two Starbucks coupons, one of them specifically for instant.

I use the hell out of the larger coupon, picking up four of the 11-12 oz packages per WM trip.

The Mountain House freeze-dried camping food suggestion brought back great memories of backpacking the Rockies. That stuff is delicious beyond compare.

Really, some of the other camping brands sux (or at least did back then) and could only be stomached because you were exhausted and hungrier than you ever get on a normal urban day. Mountain House, though, stands on its own and is awesome anytime.

Not complaining about what we have now, though. The existing OC is plentiful enough to stock my pantry better and fuller than it's ever been.

@AH , good looking out helping, but refrain from actual prices and exacts on public message board as they are never exact when listed for precautions.

On another note, yes you can use coupons for other items when they are in the same family.
e.g. Kraft cheese on maybe kraft slices or something stated for one size but will really work on the smaller yielding free.
The issue with that though is if you have someone scrutinizing your coupons and matching them, simply enough they won't match and they will deny you.

You could go as far as editing the picture and words of coupons... A simple copy/paste will give you alternatives of similar items and sizing something we all should be fairly capable of doing .

just my .02 though.

Guess what? I had Mountain House on my list to add to the OC, but someone beat my ass to it! It is in fact a coupon found in the Coupon Submission lottery! That coupon on it's own is worth the price of admission! Also I am sorry it did not go live today, it will go live EARLY tomorrow guaranteed! Today I planned to come home and release it, and then received a call IRL that I could not pass up. I had no choice but to go handle business and just walked in now, slightly tipsy, and no one wants me releasing shit after a few drinks, so tomorrow when I wake up, it's getting handled! Sorry for the delay, no one could have predicted this event, not even me, but it was the kind of thing a man can't walk away from, so I handled business and will handle business again tomorrow for all of you!

DO NOT DO THIS unless you know what you are doing.  You can only do this when a coupon has a generic family code which not all do.  Quite frankly this is bad advice, because majority of people that know the family codes would also already know to photoshop etc.

theres nothing wrong with saying you wanna see a Durex coupon for $3 off.

I agree with Wraithe here. This constitutes as fraud and couponers actually get in serious trouble for it. You can try 1 in your stack and it might work, it might get rejected but on a larger scale DON'T! Lotus' coupons are worded generously enough.

The one that always gets checked for me when the cashier is "observant" is Amy's. They always say "but you didn't get a pizza"

@Kaleb you are right, I think that's why the bitch from the tv show got locked up. I do it rarely when I can't find what's stated on the coup and I tell them that if questions arise.
The fucked up thing is that these policies have nothing to do with how the stores cash their papers. They limit the consumer's use of a coupon much more than MFR limits them, thus creating a lot more work for them, delaying customers while they weed out a legit coupon that expired 1 week ago, for which they can get reimbursed but accepting 10 photoshopped coupon for which they will get 1/10 of the value if they're lucky.

and the forum review thread for this fun listing is here: http://dkn255hz262ypmii.onion/index.php?topic=145738.msg1007458#msg1007458

Do not review or otherwise discuss this nonprofit and just for fun listing on this my main review thread. Please direct all comments about it to it's official thread. This thread remains only for my paid listings which were made by me.

Ok I went through this entire thread and also bought the OC pack and I still have questions that I hope someone would be helpful enough to answer:

1) By buying the OC, am I entitled to coupon updates?
2) Has anyone gotten in trouble/received any backlash from using these coupons?
3) Do I need to print these on special paper?
4) How often do you guys/gals visit the same store with these coupons... Basically If i use like 20 coupons in a store for one large run, should I never show my face there again?
5) Can you go through the self-checkout with these coupons?
6) What should I expect/be ready for and anything else a newbie needs to know?

1) Yes you are entitled to all future updates, free of charge (although if you're feeling extra appreciative, I'm sure GoldenLotus wouldn't object to a donation ;) )
2) None of us (that has been reported) has gotten into trouble for the use of the coupons. The most that has happened is a rejection.
3) The OC don't need to be printed on special paper, a lot of people even print them on black and white, I like color but that's personal preference.
4) I have a rotation of about 4 or 5 stores I use, and won't hit the same store for about a month.
5) Self checkout works fine.
6) Read the store's coupon policy! Sometimes you will get a jerk cashier or manager trying to give you bs and if you bust out with your policy knowledge- or even better- the policy itself, sometimes it will save your purchase. Don't be afraid to be turned down, it happens to everyone at some point.

Ok I went through this entire thread and also bought the OC pack and I still have questions that I hope someone would be helpful enough to answer:

1) By buying the OC, am I entitled to coupon updates?
2) Has anyone gotten in trouble/received any backlash from using these coupons?
3) Do I need to print these on special paper?
4) How often do you guys/gals visit the same store with these coupons... Basically If i use like 20 coupons in a store for one large run, should I never show my face there again?
5) Can you go through the self-checkout with these coupons?
6) What should I expect/be ready for and anything else a newbie needs to know?

Sorry for all the questions but I do appreciate any insider help/tips

1)Yes according to ancient Lotus tradition each listing purchased gets access to updates for that listing.
2)Not that we know off. Highly unlikely if you follow protocol and commonsense but if something serious were to happen to you, I doubt you would post it here.
3)You do not NEED to. some get fancy with magazine style paper but it is not necessary for OC IMO. For HC, people on here can write a book about their elaborations, others just do plain b&w and pull it off.
4)Rule of thumb here is a minimum of 2 weeks between visits. alternate stores as much as you can so you don't get bored :)
5)Yes but some places limit their machines, in which case you will need override for multiple coupons. try 1 or 2 in SC but live cashier is always better
6)Be ready for a whole lot of fun (maybe even save some money, I forget LOL) but do your homework first. research stores' coupon policy, start off slow, 2-3 coupons to get comfortable. double check the first 5 and pick a chill cashier

Edit: 2 more things: Shop Mom&Pop, coupon @ corporate. don't screw over the little guy :) and if you happen to buy more than you can use, and it is easy to get there on a coupon high (I hear) give to the needy. too many poor in this country and we have a magical thing going atm. pay it forward

Do you guys think I could scan these myself at a self-checkout station?

I try to use the self checkout whenever possible. What I have noticed though is that some stores don't have GS1 decoders at the self checkout (that's the nontraditional long barcode on the right of most coupons) so I cannot use some of the coups at these stores.

I've had no problem at Walmart self checkout.

If you purchase the HC you cannot use most of them at self checkout because most of them are gift cards and need to be activated at the register, and for the ones over $50 you'll need manager approval anyways (depending on store policy).

Plain old paper will work and B&W or color is fine. It all depends on what you are comfortable with and how far you want to take it. Many of us use black & white all the time with no problems. Some go full color and even holograms. It's all about how you want to do it but it all works. When it comes to using them don't go to the same store days in a row. Once a week is probably the minimum I would go but remember the longer in between trips generally means the safer you are. Again, there are many opinions on this but it's all about how comfortable you are. I know going too often is bound to get you questioned but that's a rarity if you maintain a good schedule. 
Basically this is a pretty simple deal and relatively easy to execute. There also has been little to no repercussions, aside from some questioning, that go along with using them. At most they might ask where you got them from and you can either come up with something creative or give the old "I got them from filling out a survey" line. There probably won't be any more than that associated with the OC and at worst they say they can't accept them and you leave them with a cart full of shit to put away.  Grab the coupons and bail. Keep in mind that even that is rare, these are pretty safe as long as you use your head with them.
Welcome to the club and enjoy yourself.  You've just greatly increased your quality of life whether you realized it or not.  :)

Thanks for the +1 Visa, you'll be on my list too as soon as I can give it in return. I will try to get a Coppertone made and tested this weekend and let you know how it goes, or since I usually get pretty busy on weekends I can just make it and you can test it out if you want. Either way works for me, I'll do my best.

I finally have enough posts to become a member of this forum!! I've been lurking for almost 3 weeks now. The OC was the first purchase I made on SR and so far, in 3 Wal-Mart runs, I've saved $297.93 while paying only $98.64. I'm pretty friendly so my first run I decided to go big and came home with $151.97 worth of groceries for $42.40! Can't wait for the HC to be re-released. Shopping becomes addicting and you feel like the man when you just give stuff away.

Just a quick announcement and my apologizes. I was a day late on the Lottery release and also I regret to admit I won't be done with these new additions to the OC and HC until Sunday. Sorry guys, but I'm trying to cover as many of the requests as possible while unplanned things keep slowing me down.

Also just released 10 new coupons into the Submission Lottery Collection. I won't always make announcements here about it here, but since it's release day I will. Please subscribe to the new review thread for that listing for future updates.

Update: Target has seemed to be much more lax about coupons and don't even look at them. They try to scan them and if they go through, there's never a problem. I even got them to give me $10 cash because one itunes coupon rang up as $10 and the other on $0.10. The manager looked at the receipt from moments earlier and then pulled a $10 from the register!

And since I can't give karma yet, I just wanted to mention Turkey for Breakfast has basically walked me through the coupon system, where good stores are to use them at, he gave me a coupon for free mcdonalds which has been wildly successful from what I hear. He also showed me how to get to tormail. The basics that I'm sure all of you veterans have forgotten about having to learn in the beginning. +2344958379 karma to him if I could give it.

I fucking love Target! WM is cheaper but then they have that pesky $50 savings limit before a manager has to come by and use their key. Target is a bit more expensive but I can save all I want w/o manager intervention.

I can't wait for the HC to be re-released! PL gave me the kindle fire coupon as a trial before he left. I just got some holograms in so I'm going to go try it now. I also created an amazon watermark pattern for the back of the coupon that i printed on semi-gloss paper. Ill report back when I return. I am in love with this community.

So an interesting story. I gave a bunch of coupons to my sister and yesterday she went to Traget. Was using about 10 coupons plus some real coupons from the paper and a bunch of stuff with no coupons. The old lady that was ringing up the stuff started to look at every coupon and putting them to the side. Then she tried to scan the Tide coupon and it would not. (I think she grabbed some new tide with a new SKU) anyways, she calls over a manager and he starts looking at the coupons and started to talk all this crap "Whaaat they don't make them that big, what is this" but keeps scanning them, then tries to call someone on the radio 2 times but they would not answer. Then he tells the cashier to make a copy of all the coupons and a copy of the receipt. But they did take all of them. My sister almost crapped her pants haha. Told her not to go back to that one for a while. This was her only 2nd run.

As for me, decided to do more of the HC run with my buddy. Did not have much time, but scored some stuff. Got an Express 25 gift card, applebees 25 card, Xbox Wireless headset and the War of Warcraft 60 day prepaid card. No Luck on the 100 Visas this time.

We also checked out Staples and office Depot and they were willing to take the red lobster, Starbucks, subway coupons, but the SKU are all different. They use the 76750 or something like that SKU.

Thanks for sharing :)
Your sister shouldn't use coupons in that store for a while (was the manager close to retiring? LOL) after a while, just avoid that cashier.
I don't care how flawless they are, it is better to build confidence because for the first couple of times most of us send out some serious shady vibes (subconsciously). That's my opinion.
The tide and maybe 2 more have been flagged by that chain. good news is, for some reason it does NOT apply to the GS1 (longer barcode)
HC: If you read back, or just browse enough stores, you will see there are certain chains that only order from the slightly less common batch (the number you mention). It's rare but it can also differ within a chain so feel free to check out other locations.
There is also an emerging 3rd batch (61xxx or something) but they are still rare to find, others exist but are harder still

So I hear

We need to start having more cashier profiling discussions. I'm scary good at it. It's probably my best personal skill when using coupons.

Pro tip - if the cashier looks like there is any chance in the world he/she might have worked there for more than 5 years, skip to the next one. Cashier Lifers are the people who spend their entire life working at Walmart (or any store) and these people tend to take their job very seriously and also have been around to see just about everything. Look for someone who looks like he or she is going to have multiple W2s to turn in at the end of the year. No, of course they won't get fired for accepting the coupons, they are just doing their job, but you know what I mean.

In off coupon related news, between the setbacks of last week and the bitcoin value crash this week, business has slowed tremendously on my original collection. I will have the HC collection and the coupon making lessons both relisted soon, but lets hope for the sake of our community that new SilkRoad users find us and check us out.

@m3bimmer: Remove that post. You already gave me the list and I already told you I got all of them I could find in my stores. You posted it on the Submission Lottery thread already which means someone might end up making something I already made. I'm pushing for the release of the new additions tonight and it looks promising but it might not be 100% of the requests. Regardless this is not the thread to post that on. Post suggestions that you want to see in the additions, but don't repost something I already have. You should be feeling a lot better when you see my new additions later tonight.

First mistake was going to an old lady, always always always go for a teenager. I had my biggest trip yet last weekend, I took my kids (2 and 4) with and went to a HS aged girl. That shit was like cheating, she barely even looked at the coupons, took every single one, no problems.

Now, the bitch I went to at Walmart on Friday, different story, she was maybe mid 20's, hispanic, and refused my Clif bar coupons, telling me they weren't working (she lied, they rang up fine, I could see where she rang them in and then removed them on my receipt). That being said, I did get $35-40 worth of coupons through her, so if she wants to refuse 2 of them to make herself feel better she can go right ahead. To make this trip even more nerve-wracking, I had nosy ass big momma behind me in line going "yo I need to get me somma them coupons, where you got them at?" Standard answer: blame the wife and the internet, "I have no idea, my wife gets them on the internet, she does all kinds of surveys and shit"

i just tried the Kindle coupon at bestbuy. got denied even with the hologram sticker. It also scanned incorrectly. oh well. i'll try my luck when i get the whole HC pack.

When you did your HC run, did you go to the register with all the gift cards at the same time? did you use the survey story for all of them? that looks like a successful run to me but i feel like i would get scared to try more than one GC if my only excuse was filling out surveys online.

tangojuliet: sorry to hear about your problwem with the Kindle. Did you happen to notice I amde two different Kindle coupons with different UPCs? It seems some of us had one UPC in our area while others had another. Not sure if still even more exist out there, but make sure you are using the correct one for the store you are going to. You will have to find the actual Kindle which in my area is in a cage but I can still usually pick out a UPC. Make sure the first series of 5 digits of the coupon UPC match the first series of 5 ion the product UPC. You'll find two different UPC combos I made. Possibly this will help you out.

We only do 1 gift card per store, my friend is a good talker and bullshits his way. Last week at one CVS a sales person would not take it, so He quoted the coupon policy that they have to scan it etc etc, and they did and gave him the $100 gift card. Thinking of taking a couple of days off work so we can drive around and try to score more stuff.

Today's Run:

Walmart - Groceries - $120 before coupons, $36 after coupons
Target - xBox Controller - $50 before coupon, $15 after coupon
Walgreens - $50 Visa Gift Card, $4.95 w/coupons
CVS - $100 Visa Gift Card, $5.95 w/coupons

I'd say it was a good day. Thanks GL.

Also, does anyone know a good way to convert these visa gift cards into bitcoins? The best technique I've found so far is paying myself thru paypal using the giftcards and then withdrawing it as cash. Is there any way to buy bitcoins directly with the gift cards?
Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: GoldenLotus on April 15, 2013, 01:21 am
limit: Don't believe everything a manager tells you at the store. They are just as likely to lie as we are, probably even more so. I've hard all kinds of stuff and I've learned they will just say whatever they think will get you to leave quietly. I've never had an issue at CVS besides the occasional "No" on HC coupons. I guess I better get the HC coupons listed quickly so new viewers have some kind of clue what we are talking about.

@HEATFan: Don't go too hard with the VISAs and your Paypal account. As far as I know there is no way to buy BTC with those giftcards. IMO, go spend that money ASAP! Save your other funds for BTC, but those cards need to get spent up asap and not put into your PP account.

I have been wondering the same thing, what is the most effective way of converting them over to BTC?  I know that gift cards are run as credit at POS terminals, could they be used as a credit card on a BTC site that doesn't require 8 forms of ID and a sperm sample?  Maybe there's a vendor that would exchange BTC for GC's? I think GL said before to use them ASAP after getting them before.

@GL I was referring to an earlier post about an email as well as a sign in the CVS in my area by the registers.  I never shop there anyway with all the wall-drugs and rite-nows around, so it doesn't really bother me. 8)  I was just pleasantly suprised by someone else's success. :o

@HEATFAN- I'd be leery of doing anything that would link me to the GC after the fact, like transferring to an acct. with my name on it.  Different strokes for different folks i guess.  I know that with the $50 card running as a credit card you can get cash back at most stores, then use moneygram to make a BTC deposit.  Thats what I've been doing, but I'm always looking for an easier way.  I go to one store, get a fifty $ GC, go to the next one and make an OC purchase(or ten) and then withdraw the balance(usually $40).  But I only go to stores out of my local area.  No reason to shit in ones own backyard.

Interesting you mention pawn shops, I just remembered that most check cashing stores and payday loan places in my area(CST) also buy gift cards, but they only give you like 50-60% of its value.  How much of a fee do the pawn stores charge?  I know Pawnamerica is a national chain, but i don't know if they do gift cards.  Maybe SR needs a GC fence, lol.

I have consider starting a GC fencing operation on SR. People would be happy to conduct that through me if no one else steps up to the plate. I'll look into it in a few weeks if no one has claimed the market and I finally get myself established to the point that I can take a breathe for the first time since I started GoldenLotus. It sounds like a risky operation to run on SR, but I think I'd be the man with the least to lose. Wouldn't make much sense to rip me off for $50 when I'm just going to blacklist you and then you'll have to start a new account and pay me again for my listings. Everyone interested would already be a customer of mine so I think I could make it work well.

I don't know of any head shops, but E-cigs are sold at tobacco/liquor stores and convenience stores around here.  I think I've seen the Blu ones at Wal-mart.

Thank you both for the concern, I do appreciate it and there is always something to learn. I've evaluated this a little bit already. My reasoning is that those GC's could be purchased by anyone after the fraudulent coupon purchase. I could always claim innocence and say I bought the cards from someone on craigslist. I have no real liability but I agree that if I was doing this in larger sums (1k+) then I'd need to look into more anonymous options.

The other thing I've been able to do with them is obviously spending them for daily needs. Gas, groceries, etc. I used the Visa GC to pay for my groceries at Walmart today (after using the coupons) so effectively I got paid $12 to buy $120 worth of groceries. On top of this I got another $100 visa.... this shit should be illegal.... oh wait...

My reasoning is that those GC's could be purchased by anyone after the fraudulent coupon purchase. I could always claim innocence and say I bought the cards from someone on craigslist. I have no real liability but I agree that if I was doing this in larger sums (1k+) then I'd need to look into more anonymous options.

The other thing I've been able to do with them is obviously spending them for daily needs. Gas, groceries, etc. I used the Visa GC to pay for my groceries at Walmart today (after using the coupons) so effectively I got paid $12 to buy $120 worth of groceries. On top of this I got another $100 visa.... this shit should be illegal.... oh wait...

So now here is another great question: Who has the best dabs on SR?

That question would have a lot of different answers from a lot of different people.  it's like asking what your favorite strain is.  People like different things, but in terms of purity IMO I would go with shatter. Some people say you want high THC/CBD content, but it is the terpenes that define the type of "high" you have, whether it be couch lock or an energetic buzz that makes you paint your house a different color.  Honestly, better product is made from better material, so the better herbs, the better the concentrate.  Best stuff I ever had was made from Shiva Shanti and White Widow dry ice extracted hash.

Quick question!

Is there a way to test the coupons bar codes before i take them to the store? The only reason I am asking is I think I'm having a printer issue that is causing a few of them not to scan.

Any ideas on how to test if they scan before i make a run?

You can use a coupon scanning app depending on the phone you have. I use coupon scan on ios but you could use any one, just go to your phones app store and search barcode scanner. You need not worry because they all scan fine.

Coupon Decoder is the iTunes app, but Android has a bunch of free apps that will scan for a successful scan and you'll know it's scanning with no issues, but it won't decode all the information for you like Coupon Decoder will.

Take a pic of your coupons (The 3 per page ones) and upload it and send it to me via PM. I'll see what looks wrong with it. Clear pic please. Use imgur for upload (scrubs exif data).

I just had the best set of flashbacks... Who remembers Christmas 2012 around here? I can't wait to see what Christmas 2013 will be like. In 2011, I had to take out loans just to get everyone gifts. In 2012, we had the best Christmas ever. Paid those loans off, had presents for everyone that I didn't even have to pay for 90% of them.

Oh shit, we are a week away from 420! Hmm, do I have anything up my sleeve I can pull? Am I at 100 posts yet? I'm ready to go through the pages spamming +1s.

He doesn't seem to have any active listings, but when his listings are up you won't find a better dude with better bud! He doesn't sell a listing that I don't immediately want to buy. Hope to see him pop back up soon.

FarmGuy: http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/8117dd9cee
He might not be very active on the forums, but without a doubt he is one of the best around. Another vendor who lives up to the standard of being one of the greats on SilkRoad.

Blueveil: http://silkroadvb5piz3r.onion/silkroad/user/6b054e104e
Another one with no active listings. Where are all the great vendors going? Make sure you become a fan of this dude.

tangojuliet: sorry to hear about your problwem with the Kindle. Did you happen to notice I amde two different Kindle coupons with different UPCs? It seems some of us had one UPC in our area while others had another. Not sure if still even more exist out there, but make sure you are using the correct one for the store you are going to. You will have to find the actual Kindle which in my area is in a cage but I can still usually pick out a UPC. Make sure the first series of 5 digits of the coupon UPC match the first series of 5 ion the product UPC. You'll find two different UPC combos I made. Possibly this will help you out.

i used the one with the correct upc :( know of anywhere else that carries them? i'm really excited to just try something that is carried at both walmart and target. i heard kmart was good but unfortunately the one closest to me was recently shut down (for reasons other than coupons i'm sure)

Thank you for the kind words!! I'm still around, just sharing vending duties these days with SativaSally, my partner. When my listings are down, please check her's. Now I get to be in the garden more often! My two all time favorite hobbies, growing and couponing.

The gift card coupons have been excellent in my area. Still able to hit Walmart self check out with 2 $25 GCs at one time, no CSM needed. Usually run 2 transactions, if it's kinda busy, so I walk out with $100. Thanks PL!!! Looking forward to the Lottery, another awesome idea from the Lotus family.

Does anyone else feel like Robin Hood? I do when I give a hand full of coupons to my friends and family, and they return and are gushing about how much money the saved.

I was wondering when you would be listing shake again.

I'll make a custom coupon for any product and any amount to anyone who places an order with SativaSally this week. Place an order with her and then send me a message with the details of your coupon request and I will have it finished in less than 24 hours for you. Anyone selling 420blindman's products is someone you can trust the same way you did me when I started selling PurpleLotus products. I can't make any promises, but if history taught us anything it was that coupon community members always got a little extra weed in their order too.

Hi guys and Gals,

 So this looks really interesting. I was laid off some time ago and its been a real fight to try and keep the family afloat ...

I can't wait to buy the OC pack as soon as I can scrap up the funds to do so. So far all I have used the road for was making buys for other people and making just a little bit over the fees to buy a few extras for the kids.

I do have some questions in the mean time..

1.  How hard is the "use cash" rule?

2. Has anyone used these at publix?

as it sounds in this thread ( I read all 22 pages) Target seems to be one of the top places for this.. and walmart a close 2nd..

I would love all the insight you guys can offer.. I'm just trying to find away to keep the family going.. My other half and I should have some shrooms coming up soon and I know that will help the bottom line but every penny counts so much..

Thanks in advance!

I think chargeback would be a rare thing.  I would be more concerned with a history.  same card used, same coupons, wouldnt take much to see a pattern.  I dont think they could legally chargeback.

i've gotten stuck without cash before just due to my spaciness and have used a card on a few isolated occasions.  only once did i notice that a charge from walmart seemed to be more than it should have been, but i couldn't find the receipt to confirm or disconfirm that suspicion.

it seems to me that with the really big companies like walmart and target, things are so compartmentalized that the cashiers and CSMs likely have no connection to these coupons once they're sent out from the store.  one of the CSMs at the local walmart know my wife and I as the 'mad couponers'.  we've been using these coupons (OC) at this walmart for over 4 months now and no one has given us any guff at all.

Just a question for whoever may be out there, would you really want to be known as a "coupon" guy or gal when it comes to the OC?  I know with the HC the tendency is to be as low key as possible, and I think GL or PL posted previously that it was something you didn't want to do.  i may be wrong about that, I'm just seeking clarification.

Chances are, it would not be a big deal. But there is no reason or value in having a high profile. Best to keep your name and face off their radar as best you can so you can keep it going for as long as possible. Forever if you can!

I really only ask about the card /  cash thing as my sister has food stamps and kicking her some coupons would help her out too.. I just did not want to get her in trouble just trying to help..  ;)

using a foodstamp card i would recommend her making 2 purchases.  one for coupon related things and another for non coupon.  if anyone asks her she can tell them it is because her card is monitored and she does not want them to justify/lower her benefits due to the amount of food she receives for mad couponing.  bullshit but a cashier would believe it.  she is atleast covered this way.

i've gotten stuck without cash before just due to my spaciness and have used a card on a few isolated occasions.  only once did i notice that a charge from walmart seemed to be more than it should have been, but i couldn't find the receipt to confirm or disconfirm that suspicion.

it seems to me that with the really big companies like walmart and target, things are so compartmentalized that the cashiers and CSMs likely have no connection to these coupons once they're sent out from the store.  one of the CSMs at the local walmart know my wife and I as the 'mad couponers'.  we've been using these coupons (OC) at this walmart for over 4 months now and no one has given us any guff at all.

Just a question for whoever may be out there, would you really want to be known as a "coupon" guy or gal when it comes to the OC?  I know with the HC the tendency is to be as low key as possible, and I think GL or PL posted previously that it was something you didn't want to do.  i may be wrong about that, I'm just seeking clarification.

For me, I hit different stores every week. I even drive an hour away just in case. Try to spread it out. Specially for the HC stuff.

Hi guys and Gals,

 So this looks really interesting. I was laid off some time ago and its been a real fight to try and keep the family afloat ...

I can't wait to buy the OC pack as soon as I can scrap up the funds to do so. So far all I have used the road for was making buys for other people and making just a little bit over the fees to buy a few extras for the kids.

I do have some questions in the mean time..

1.  How hard is the "use cash" rule?

2. Has anyone used these at publix?

as it sounds in this thread ( I read all 22 pages) Target seems to be one of the top places for this.. and walmart a close 2nd..

I would love all the insight you guys can offer.. I'm just trying to find away to keep the family going.. My other half and I should have some shrooms coming up soon and I know that will help the bottom line but every penny counts so much..

Thanks in advance!

I try to use cash as much as possible but I have used my personal card a few times. I don't think it's a huge deal since this is the only illegal thing I do from time to time, besides the occasional Roll or Trip.

These coupons work GREAT at Publix! Especially with their weekly BOGO offers, assuming the cashier is dumb enough to not notice. Example: Sabra Hummus, got two for $3 minus $2.50 from the coupoun.

Stay away from the registers with the customer service desk in view. Something tells me that if a manager saw a huge stack of coupons being scanned in perfect view it would raise flags. Also funny story:

Wanted some crest white strips, $20 off coupon, and when I went down the appropriate aisle I found a "See Customer Service Desk" notice. I go up the desk, pick the right white strips, and then show her the coupon. She takes a hard look at it and then disappears into the back room. 10 minutes later comes out, apologizes, and goes into a different backroom, comes back 5 minutes later. I pretend to be a little pissed off about the wait. She tells me that they had to verify the coupon and it checked out. It scans perfectly, I attempt to pay with my card...insufficient funds.

I was broke because I had been couponing waaay too much my first week. :D

I gave some to my roommate last night and he saved about $100 his first trip. Gave them to another friend and she saved $40 her first time. I told my roommate that the coupons are for the products in a different region which happen to be priced higher which is why the coupon amounts seem high. Logical enough for him and he's an engineering major (its partially true, items in different regions are priced differently). I told my female friend that they were non-manufacturer manufacturer coupons (i hate to use the word fake because they are very much real) and she went kinda easy with them. If you give them to your sister or anyone else, try using the different region excuse. It'll keep them in the dark and they can legitimately claim ignorance. Plus it'll save them from having to act if they think they're real.

Also, let us know when you get those shrooms up! I've been researching some shroom vendors on SR but they seem to come and go so its hard to find a trustworthy vendor.

yeah as a point i like to avoid that sort of thing, but i also would rather exude warmth and kindness in interactions with CSMs than to be focusing on a low profile, so this particular woman has remembered me.  i do space out my visits there, and at first i was a little uneasy with being recognized, but it hasn't seemed to make much of a difference in my ability to keep using the coupons there which was the point i was trying to make.  obviously we do our very best to minimize possible exposure to what we do, but my experience has shown that there CAN be some wiggle room, sometimes substantial wiggle room.

Thanks for all the great info guys!!!

 Yeah keeping her semi in the dark is a great thing.. LOL.. But I will tell her to just use them at different times just to be safe.. good idea

great to know that Publix has no issues with these we have TONS of them down here as well as Target.. I try to avoid Walmart but I might do this there since we have so many here.. LOL

 And YES I will let you guys know about the shrooms.. We are working on a small batch right now ( we just moved) and that will mostly be a sample batch I think we will see what the weight yield is on it ..
We are working on building a large scale set up here at the new place like we use to have at the old place. We have so many festivals and things down here in the south its has not been hard to move weight in the past.. But now I have SR and that will take a better volume I think so we can go a bit larger.. It will be a little bit but its coming guys and they are top grade yummy too. :)

Wow - Ran into the Bullzeye on my way to work this morning to try out some of the new releases....... Total savings $90.00!  LOL
 
Only issue I found was the Dawn -----> (released 4/15/2013) which wouldn't scan not sure what the code was at that point I figured I had saved enough but for some reason it scanned but with an error message.  Maybe Ill try a different location to make sure!  CS didn't offer to over-ride as we often get but hey $2.64 is a small price to pay! (FUNNY, I HAVE MY OWN "Dawn coupon " Which has been generated using PL's generator. NEVER WORKED AT NEITHER WALMART OR TARGET)
 
Besides that everything was smooth sailing..... Purex, Snuggle, Yogurt, Olive Oil, TP, Razors, Lotion, Sunblock Coppertone and Banana Boat and Coffee oh and all in multiplies of 2........

Had a decent day out yesterday....ive only tried a few HC with not the best results so ive been alittle cautious to try again...got up enough nerve and thought id try the go phone at wallyworld...grabbed a phone and minutes and walked away with a ten from the register! grabbed another from the wally across town and same thing! 20 in my pocket plus 2 phones! to bad i have no real need for the phone

also had a wedding over the weekend and thanks to the OC we saved them alot on food costs! i just wanted to say thank you for them to PL and GL and anyone else who has helped along the way bringing this to SR ! a real game changer (and gut changer...ive packed on 15 lbs since ive found these)

@GL...thanks for the OC updates nice cross selection of items!
also i was wondering when the HC was going to be back up on SR? are you planning a update for the HC also?
and do you plan on doing OC updates on a reg basis ?

HAHA I love VISAHATE and when he announces his plus ones, but what confuses me is when he announces on the forum that he sent me a PM. I check my PMs first so by the time I see the post, I'm just sitting there smacking myself in the head.

@whiteonwhite: open a vendor account and start selling "ANONYMOUS THROW AWAY CELL PHONES!". As far as the HC is concerned, those who own it previously see that a couple of them have expired. I wanted to fix these before relisting it, and this week had me jammed packed on time. I have been prioritizing things and taking care of all the old customers and getting them back on board with this operation was priority number one, and then the OC updates I felt was important too, so HC updates and relisting should be coming very soon. I will also list the Lessons soon too, but if you hit me up with a PM you can get a custom listing for either one of them today. I just need to work things out, including retyping the listing descriptions which SR Support had to get rid of, but don't get me wrong, I'm a huge fan of SR Support and have nothing but respect for them. Despite PL's faults, SR Support is the reason we are still here right now. Thank you!

@thedude19: It's not a big deal, we have all been guilty of it at some point. Even I have accidentally not had enough cash and just said fuck it, but do NOT make it a habit. Nothing bad has happened yet, so let's try to keep it that way. lol :-p

@VISAHATE: I may redo that Dawn coupon because it appears as if Dawn uses different UPCs very often and on different sizes, so I think I'll remake it up like the HP ink and Kuerig K-Cup coupon so it will work on multiple versions of their UPC.

I feel like keeping a low profile is vital to the longevity of your ability to use these coupons. I have been couponing at the same stores for well over two years now. If I allow people to recognize me and start to identify me as that guy who always comes in with the coupons as soon as I walk through the door, then my days are limited and it's a matter of time before a manager approaches me and says "Yeah those coupons you use, we aren't being reimbursed for them." and then I become the guy who is banned from using coupons at that store. So far I've done an excellent job flying low and under the radar. We all still want to be couponing at our favorite stores in 2014 right? No one wants to be driving an hour just to use a coupon, while reading all of us talking about how awesome the latest shit is.

Word. That's what I figured. It was definitely fun though. I think that coupon was the most valuable coupon I ever fucked around with in terms of helping me step my game up. I actually got one cashier to put it through even though it definitely wasn't scanning. He just wanted to get home and desperately try this bogus website I made up on the spot... hahaha good times.

Holy shit you need to make a front website. Or someone does. Maybe I will do this. That way we can send people to a website which from the front actually looks like it offers incredible "Savings" for surveys. And the coupon could have a verify code on it or something... hmm.... just thinking out loud here. Could make some hardcore coupons more legit. Or it could just make them harder to pass off because there's one more obstacle for the cashier to cross. But for the ones that are hard to pull off it adds another layer of perceived legitimacy. What are your thoughts?

Figured I'd post this for the hell of it  :D

So my buddies and I decided to go for a coupon run, (target is like 20 minutes from my house) and we got side tracked into smoking a foot long and some other blunts at my other buds house. By the time we got out of there it was 9:40, 20 minutes to close. We were way to high to be making logical decisions so we decided to go anyways. Show up at target at 9:45 with some random ass coupons. Grabbed our shit and we were the last ones in the store. Ended up paying up $1.90 for $180 of food. HAHA! That's what I'm talking about. We didn't stop eating that night. It tastes so much better when it's free....and you're high. We even got a 'I'm very impressed by you boys' from the manager! She told us we need to give her a few tips on savings!

Again, one of many successes with these coupons. Much love.

Back to the subject of the thread, do any of you guys resize the OC collection?   Is there any certain formats that you prefer when making certain ones?  I noticed the fine writing seems more blurry when I make them smaller now, is this due to the update or do I need a new printer? 

YES. I take the entire collection and unzip to a single directory. Then I batch convert everything to PNG8 format. After this I run them all through a program called PNGOUT.

Done properly there is zero loss of printed fidelity with a file savings of around 70 percent. This works on 95% of coupons.

For the 5 percent that are full page, full color jpgs you can easily save them with 50% quality in Photoshop or use an image compression program called RIOT.

Don't hesitate on the laser. Any cheap one will do. Be sure to get a true 4 color laser printer though. It won't match photo quality of an inject but graphics, txt, and barcodes will be substantially better than any inkjet unless you're printing on photopaper.

There's a whole other set of rules for outputing PDF, which I think is better, but that is for another day. :p

I appreciate the hell out of Smoked for his attempts to show me a better way, and his ideas worked great in terms of minimizing the file sizes, but ultimately there was a loss of quality which was clearly noticed by me. Would they have been any less effective against a cashier? No fucking way, they would have worked awesome. The fact remains, I can see the difference. If I can see the difference, then all of us will too. It won't matter to a cashier, but I'll be damned if I have my coupons looking any less sexy than they currently do. If you print in color then you would have noticed a much larger difference, but black and white printing you would have noticed no loss.

We won't mention it again. Take the time and download the files.

HA. Can't argue with that! I said from the beginning if there is quality loss then it shouldn't be done. I compress things out of hobby and because of work so sometimes I get carried away. :P I guess asking GL to compress his files was like asking Michelangelo to paint faster. ;) As always, thank you GL!!! This is a great community.

Just some parting thoughts before I shut forever on the subject (it isn't that big of a deal)...

1. The loss of color fidelity came because of the conversion from PNG24 to PNG8 (reduction of colors).
2. For zero quality loss you can still just keep them in the original PNG24 format and *only* use PNGOUT (lossless compression) to get a smaller size, albeit not quite as drastic as before.

Example: DawnDishLiquid.png = 2.00mb, after compression DawnDishLiquid.png = 1.5MB.

Again not drastic, and probably not important, but for those of you at home who want to do this just for fun I thought I'd throw it out there.

P.S. The new coupon additions were awesome!

Been loving the coupons but wanted to ask about groupons...

On clearnet sites, you can buy groupons at about  ~50% off from their initial price on the Groupon site. This effectively gives you 75% percent off the 'original price'. When I bought these, I would pay using paypal, and I would ALWAYS be making payment to some account with a Chinese name. I dont think someone over in china is buying these and then deciding to sell to recover what they spent.... especially since the same person can have between 5-10 identical groupon certificates for sale at a heavy discount. What gives?

Do you think it is possible to 'hack' the groupons like these people seem to be doing?

 a good scan of a groupon should be able to yield more groupons, photoshop personal info out, change a barcode if there is one.  very feasible.

Can someone with some good experience using real Groupons send me a message so I can ask a couple questions. I've seen them but never used them. Seems like there would be several different possible angles to this working.

I've used groupons a fair amount and my company has put up offers on groupon.  Ours were a little more expensive and for a small niche market, so we didn't sell thousands like some of the chain businesses for a $10 off deal might sell...not sure if all smaller businesses do this, but they gave us a file of everyone who purchased our groupon by name and we would just mark it off our list when it was redeemed.  When I've used them for AMC movie theaters and chain restaurants etc it seems that a lot of the time they don't even scan them. Anyone else notice this??

This is a much better idea than what i printed out diaper coupons for...Every time i go on a run, i check the diaper aisle for MILFs, hoping that Ill find one looking at diapers in which case I'll approach them and be like "i have these coupons, i thought they were a good deal and i hated to see them go to waste so i cut them out anyways". Hoping it'll lead to me being able to mark off MILF from my bucket list. I cut them out and put them in my binder under a tab called "milf bait". hope yall think its as funny as i do. especially when i'm stoned.

lol anywho, imaginary +1 (still cant wait to give actual +1s) to you for your generous heart.

Imaginary +1 to both of you! When I go on big runs, I usually do more than 2 and dedicate one of those trips to donations. I get a cart full of stuff and go drop it off at the local township, they get so happy! It feels awesome to help others, especially when it's so easy to do.

Had a shit day today, went to the local FOOD ONLY walmart which are much smaller than super walmarts with about 6 registers. Went in to get 4 food items, pissed off everyone in line because the cashier upon looking at the coupons went straight to the manager. Waited a LONG time to finally talk to her. Basically said starting on the 14th they can't take manufacturer coupons. I gave the survey excuse and asked if this is how all people who use coupons are treated? I was standing there for nearly 15 minutes and a dude behind me was screaming at the manager "WE HAVE JOBS AND FAMILIES! HELLLLOOOO!"

I'm going to wait a month or two before using them in small amounts there again, to test whether or not this "starting on the 14th" thing is true. I've unloaded about $100 worth of coupons total  this past month on 4 separate trips.


In other news, during break at work T4B's McDonalds coupon worked, however for dinner I got turned down. But the manager said that FREE LARGE COMBO is incorrect for my area, apparently if it said FREE LARGE VALUE MEAL it would be acceptable LOL. why she told me that valuable info idk.

T4B u got a pm :D

That's my biggest issue with these coupons. I'm really not nor have I ever been a cheap bastard in my life.... so when I used the OC coupons and handed the cashier a stack of them.... made me feel cheap. Especially because people had to wait for each and every coupon to get scanned and they were getting visibly annoyed. I wish the process was faster... but I guess you can't complain when you're saving 75%+ everytime.

I tried the glad bags @ Tarjey also but didn't work. Its actually the only 1 that hasn't worked for me. I have not tried any of the gc coupons but have scanned them with an app. On itunes one bar code scans at 10$ off and the other @ .10  I also noticed the visa gift cards scan with something like cashier intervention/approval?

After 1 month of use, I've managed to save right around $400 from the OC, weaseled 4 $50 VISAS, and also made a steady profit selling cigs by the singles at parties  8)

So far, I've had one incident at a local grocery chain (Food Lion to be exact) where they caught on to my shenanigans. No legal trouble, just told me the manager couldn't accept them. It was a letdown for sure, but I've switched to Walmart and Target full time now so there shouldn't be anymore trouble. Just something to look out for at your smaller stores.

One coupon I have to ask about is the Hungry Man frozen dinners. Has anyone else had any troubles getting these to work?

 I DON'T understand this a bit!! Now I can't buy my coupon pack  :'( and I have to wait and try and scrap up funds to do it AGAIN!

So I go to the store last night for a little HC action and got denied on a $50 visa because the store claimed to not accept mfg. internet coupons even though it doesn't say internet on the damn coupon or full page ad.  That was the 4th store to tell me that so it got me thinking(necessity is the mother of all shenanigans), that maybe I just needed to disprove the internet claim.  ***Solution- Graphics editing program.  Scan the full page Visa coupon into your computer in color, and then cut out the name(with cut/paste) of the company who issued it.(I won't say the name on here, if you have the HC you know what I'm talking about)  Then take this name/logo and save it to a separate file as a graphic image.  Most programs have templates that allow you to make ENVELOPES.  (If you can't find a graphics program, PM me and if I can figure out how to make an upload site I'll help you out.  I have a lot of programs I'd be willing to share with the community just for the sake of sharing, though most can be torrented and cracked if you know how.  ***NOTE: I am not offering coupon programs, I was talking about Print Shop and Adobe CS6.  If you want coops, GL is your man.)   Now, take the image and place it on the envelope in the return area in the top left corner, add in the address info of the company to the envelope from the clearnet.  Feel free to add whatever info for a mailing address.  No need to mail it, just seal the envelope and tear it so you rip off the corner where the stamp or postmark would have been.   (The cashiers never checked anything on the envelope, they just saw I had it with the logo on the front and accepted the coupon after cutting it off the full page ad.)  Gave em the CC story about how I got two free nights at a hotel and the gift card but it didn't really make much difference since I gotta make $1500 in purchases.  I got it to pass at EVERY STORE THAT TURNED ME DOWN!!!  Even with one of the original managers.  I told him I called them and they mailed it to me.  Hopefully this helps anyone else with the full page ads that are getting turned down due to internet coupon policy or some a$$clown manager making stuff up.  :P

I forgot to mention that when I took one to a store I hadn't used it at, the store manager that came to the cashiers assistance stated he "hadn't seen it before", but after glancing it over stated, and I quote; "It's real, it's the same paper we send these out on, go ahead and punch it in." He then just walked off.  WINNING!!!!  FYI- I was at tarjey, and I have no idea what the hell he was talking about that they send out. 

Does anyone know? 

Semi-Pro-Tip  The paper I have been using for the GC's is called premium presentation paper 120g, matte finish with double sided printing(so you can put a watermark or security seal on the other side, like for 360's and foodsavers.  ;) Aside from the internet coupon denying fiasco, I haven't been turned down on any HC I have attempted.  ;D

Limitless: that's a really inventive idea you have and I bet it works amazing. What makes me a little nervous about it though is that now you are sacrificing your deniability for a higher rate of success. At the end of the day, you always have to be able to say, "Oh this isn't real? Guess I'm the fool." when using coupons from the HC collection. The envelope idea is great, but then how do you explain yourself if a manager says "We have seen this before and it's a fake."

GL: I only plan on using them once per store in different areas, as I am moving in 6 weeks halfway across the country.  I also figured if I did them all within 2-3 days I could pass them all off before anyone caught on. 

@GL- Did the OC get reuploaded at its original file size since the update?  I'm getting fuzziness in my barcodes when I resize them.

Yea GL has a strong point here. I've thought about doing that same thing with the beats by dre...I went so far as to printing logos and return address on labels and even stamped ink over the stamps I used, I was about to use it but realized: This is A LOT riskier than playing the "dumbfounded fool" as GL said. It sets you up for some actual big trouble if things were to go wrong...just a heads up so be careful.

*On a side note; great idea. Went on the run with OCs last night and I beat my record for savings. The total bill was two hundo an total savings of hundred seventy six!
*I've pretty much mastered it by creating a list by what it the item is and putting the coup. amount next to it. Auto sum the list and you know how much you "should" be saving. I arrange the items by location of store (that i know) and bring in a pen. Every item I find, I cross of list and jot down next to it the difference in +/- price (I'm a math nerd i kno) but it has saved me a lot of money as some stores had try to screw me over and then I showed them my math work and asked if I needed to speak with the manager. They responded "Oh I must've missed this one, oh and this one oops..I'm so so sorry".  8)

So I go to the store last night for a little HC action and got denied on a $50 visa because the store claimed to not accept mfg. internet coupons even though it doesn't say internet on the damn coupon or full page ad.  That was the 4th store to tell me that so it got me thinking(necessity is the mother of all shenanigans), that maybe I just needed to disprove the internet claim.  ***Solution- Graphics editing program.  Scan the full page Visa coupon into your computer in color, and then cut out the name(with cut/paste) of the company who issued it.(I won't say the name on here, if you have the HC you know what I'm talking about)  Then take this name/logo and save it to a separate file as a graphic image.  Most programs have templates that allow you to make ENVELOPES.  (If you can't find a graphics program, PM me and if I can figure out how to make an upload site I'll help you out.  I have a lot of programs I'd be willing to share with the community just for the sake of sharing, though most can be torrented and cracked if you know how.  ***NOTE: I am not offering coupon programs, I was talking about Print Shop and Adobe CS6.  If you want coops, GL is your man.)   Now, take the image and place it on the envelope in the return area in the top left corner, add in the address info of the company to the envelope from the clearnet.  Feel free to add whatever info for a mailing address.  No need to mail it, just seal the envelope and tear it so you rip off the corner where the stamp or postmark would have been.   (The cashiers never checked anything on the envelope, they just saw I had it with the logo on the front and accepted the coupon after cutting it off the full page ad.)  Gave em the CC story about how I got two free nights at a hotel and the gift card but it didn't really make much difference since I gotta make $1500 in purchases.  I got it to pass at EVERY STORE THAT TURNED ME DOWN!!!  Even with one of the original managers.  I told him I called them and they mailed it to me.  Hopefully this helps anyone else with the full page ads that are getting turned down due to internet coupon policy or some a$$clown manager making stuff up.  :P


 I wanted to share here... First Limitless over all GREAT Idea and FANTASTIC you pulled it off !! I'm glad it worked and I can't wait to have the money to get both packs!
BUT, as someone who was a retail manager for 12+ years, I would not have fallen for it and would have called you out on the envelope..as you missed one thing that I know should be there.. Go grab some envelope you have gotten in the mail.. Go on!... now look at the bottom.. See all of those little lines? Those are printed by the post office for the scanning machines...You could try and fake them as its not like they have to be scanned.. or.. send some pre-packaged ones to a friend OUT OF AREA and have them mail them too you! Then you will have that envelope with all the post marking done by the Real thing AND it adds to the deny ability story if you ever needed to!! You can stick with what ever story you have for the social engineering side of things that you have (servery,  hotel story what not) and you have something with REAL post marks to show that it came in the mail.. As an added bonus if you really want it too look good. Use a Po Box for the return address then the post mark zip code and the return zip code on the real post mark do not even have to match!!  This way if you get called out on being fake you can say " Um, like I would know it came in the mail"  then they can't try and blame you for printing it and trying to pull one over... Only someone really on their game would catch this but others like me are out there..

I no longer work retail..but I do know all the ins and outs of how it works..

in the mean time.. where is the best place to get paper for all of this type stuff? I'm not real sure where to start or what to look for.. ( Noobie thread? GL )  And what are these holograms you guys keep talking about?

Hey all! Long time no see!

I'm about to go try to make some VISA's fly!

What amounts work the best & what stores work the best?

Also did we ever get a answer to whether or not you can go to self checkouts for the GC's?

Any quick tips before I head out are appreciated! Also where is the 100$ visa GC located at?

Hey White Out!

The 100 visa is located in hardcore 5 i believe, maybe 4. they aren't full page. PM me for the other questions if someone doesn't answer, or if you want my .2 cents, regardless I'd be happy to help you out.

Our local crisis pregnancy shelter got a much needed diaper donation today thank to Team Lotus. <3 Thanks for what you do!

This is a much better idea than what i printed out diaper coupons for...Every time i go on a run, i check the diaper aisle for MILFs, hoping that Ill find one looking at diapers in which case I'll approach them and be like "i have these coupons, i thought they were a good deal and i hated to see them go to waste so i cut them out anyways". Hoping it'll lead to me being able to mark off MILF from my bucket list. I cut them out and put them in my binder under a tab called "milf bait". hope yall think its as funny as i do. especially when i'm stoned.

lol anywho, imaginary +1 (still cant wait to give actual +1s) to you for your generous heart.

You gave me a good laugh. But seriously its not a bad idea. If I was approached in a store that way,  I think I would be a lot more receptive to that than just cheesy bullshit flirting.

What a good idea, both for flirting and donating diapers.

Lots of papers will work. You need one that is double sided and approximates the feel of catalogs or magazines or tabloids.

In other words, brochure or presentation paper. Be sure to get the lightest and thinnest "matte" finished paper you can find.

Just getting coated paper is going to go a long way to improving the picture quality and professional look (and feel) of your coupons. On regular paper the ink is allowed to "spread" (absorb) into the paper and that reduces the resolution substantially. This is why Lasers are so cool no ink spread so text and barcodes are always crisp. You can get the same quality on your inkjet if you get a coated (photo/presentation) paper.

Go to staples website and type in "519718" in the search bar. That is a good paper to use. Honestly just go to any print store and ask to feel samples. Tell them what you want. You'll get good paper. Then just go online and order it. ;)

@absinthekitten -Lmao

Right as you were writing your post, I just made a template with the sorting barcode at the bottom and I have a personal postage meter to meter the envelope like the post office.  I also should note that when I was in each store, I never handed them the envelope, I had it in my left hand to cover where the stamp had been torn off, but they could see a full color "H%$#@" logo emblazoned on the envelope as I pulled out the flyer.  They never scrutinized the envelopes, I was playing guinea pig to see if it would work.(young cashiers between 4-8pm work best in my area since kids work after school and these seem to be peak shopping times when cashiers are just dreaming of going home.)  I see you have a great mind. ;)

Thanks for the compliments, I am humbled and happy just to be able to share any knowledge I come across.  I honestly was pissed off about being turned down for those, and just wanted to get the last word, er, coupon in.  I never go to the stores I used them at, and since I'm relocating, never will again.  However I will be using them when I travel cross country when I move.  I haven't touched the "free" visa's(i read they raise flags) or gas cards yet. Anyone wanna share any thoughts or success?
I wanna expand into everything else now.

BTW-Target just dropped two foodsavers under $100 yesterday.

Smoked is absolutely right, and I can expand a little bit.  The best selection you can find will be at office supply stores like Staples(as smoked mentioned), OfficeMax, OfficeDepot, etc...  IMO and experience(I'm not an expert), the best paper I found for inkjet printers(I have an HP Photo Printer and a deskjet), is 120g "premium presentation paper" for the visa's and stuff that looks like it could have come in the mail.  I use 180g glossy brochure paper for the other flyers like xbox360, ps3, and I'm gonna try the kindle later today or tomorrow. Double sided is always best, as some such as myself, like to go the extra mile to put opaque watermarks as a security feature on the backs so they appear as though they cannot be copied. ;)  Others like to use Holograms, but I've only seen one vendor on SR with them and I'm looking for the rectangular ones.

are you guys printing the OC on reg paper? I know I saw some people do Black and White others color.. just wondering about the paper on these..

is the food saver in the OC or the HC? I'm not ever sure what a food saver is but you guys seem to be saving a TON with them so..

@smoked  Thanks!!!! +1 karma when I get to a hundred, I couldn't find them anywhere but never use amazon, I was trying to buy them on SR.

@Absinthekitten(we should drink sometime)-The issue with the kindle someone had was that there were two different UPC's and I think they simply had the wrong one.  For the OC, I use regular paper but with 92 brightness instead of 96 but I don't think it matters.  I just had a ream of it cause staples had a rebate to make it free. :)  The foodsaver is in the HC(hardcore collection), and it is a vaccum sealer used to help preserve food.  There's also a coupon for the bags for them in the OC.  I'm not saving a ton with them, I give them away because I have a lot of hunters and fishermen in my family.  They are useful for packaging other things as well....(hint:weed)

I passed the glad trash bag coupon yesterday and it worked no problem, paid 48 cents for them. The only one where there was a problem was the banana boat, it scanned but prompted the cashier to enter a value off but this could have been my fault for grabbing one with a different UPC.

....I almost hate saying it but this is the type of stuff I excel at.. Too many years on the other end I think.. As a friend and I ( on the end of a Trip last week, Envious has GREAT Lucy BTW) We were talking about how Cops come in two flavors but that MOST start off as just one.. Lawful Good.. High and tight hair just trying to do the right thing, by the law that is put forth in front of them.. After years on the force they tend to split from that into two groups.. Mostly.. there is a 3rd.. but there are less of them... Group one sticks hard nosed to the Lawful good side and will die with a high and tight still crawling up everyones ass for everything.. Group two retire or quit and become "hippies" / Chaotic good  or even Neutral ... May of them join the ranks of pot smokers ect.. the 3rd group.. they just see too much, deal with too much and it breaks them and then tend to end up in the Neutral Evil to Lawful Evil group and due to being police now know how to break bad and not get caught, or at least avoid it very well.

Its kinda like that for me.. I spent many years in the banking industry and in retail so I know the ins and outs of it all and there for can work the system very well.. Being tall very busty ( 38 DDD) Female that draws a lot of attention from men and Bi / gay woman.. Social Engineering is pretty easy too.. so when I combine both skill sets along with my back ground in graphic design.. Yeah.. I'm  a force to reckon with on this. LOL... I would be really interested in seeing that "lesson"  set up that someone was talking about..

My initial guess is that the barcodes created for the online tickets are activated on purchase so my instinct tells me there's no way. But somebody want to give their input on this?

Coupon Decoder is the iTunes app, but Android has a bunch of free apps that will scan for a successful scan and you'll know it's scanning with no issues, but it won't decode all the information for you like Coupon Decoder will.

OK, and without further delay, let's take a look at this weeks set of additions to the OC. I have some HC additions but they will not be released until the HC is back up for sale shortly.

$5.00 off BananaBoat Sunscreen

I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter, most stores aren't tied to their(CIC) database, and most cashiers aren't going to take your coupons online and check every one of them.  I'm pretty sure the cashiers at my store have never even heard of it.  I think all of them will still scan even if listed, it's just that eventually they may tell you they can't accept them because the manufacturer won't honor the voucher.  I know if it becomes an issue GL will take care of it.  We're in good hands, no worries.

Yup

I don't really know what the cic actually do except killing our buzz. It is mostly a fairly long cycle until a retailer decides to act (flag on their system) on one coupon so it's irrelevant.
That said, I do believe they will be a bigger force in the future

I tried the glad bags @ Tarjey also but didn't work. Its actually the only 1 that hasn't worked for me. I have not tried any of the gc coupons but have scanned them with an app. On itunes one bar code scans at 10$ off and the other @ .10  I also noticed the visa gift cards scan with something like cashier intervention/approval?

my itunes did that, i notified the manager and he fixed it. the cashier has to manually choose the itunes gift card. it just tells them to make sure the coupon matches the item.

Our local crisis pregnancy shelter got a much needed diaper donation today thank to Team Lotus. <3 Thanks for what you do!

This is a much better idea than what i printed out diaper coupons for...Every time i go on a run, i check the diaper aisle for MILFs, hoping that Ill find one looking at diapers in which case I'll approach them and be like "i have these coupons, i thought they were a good deal and i hated to see them go to waste so i cut them out anyways". Hoping it'll lead to me being able to mark off MILF from my bucket list. I cut them out and put them in my binder under a tab called "milf bait". hope yall think its as funny as i do. especially when i'm stoned.

lol anywho, imaginary +1 (still cant wait to give actual +1s) to you for your generous heart.

You gave me a good laugh. But seriously its not a bad idea. If I was approached in a store that way,  I think I would be a lot more receptive to that than just cheesy bullshit flirting.

glad i got you to laugh.  ;D honestly, my favorite part of approaching girls is getting them relaxed enough to laugh. i feel like girls (and everyone else in general) takes life too seriously for the most part. i'm an engineering major (soon to be graduate!!!!) and i'd have blown my brains out if i took everything so seriously for the last 5 years.

 I use BitInstant.. I do a cash deposit and you can send it to a bitcoin wallet and cut the exchanges out entirely .. By the time you get home it should be in your wallet.. If you send it to SR directly ( as you can btw) it takes a bit longer but I'm sure you know it takes a while even from a wallet..

If you live near a Wells Fargo then try Bitcopia. I only used them about 3 weeks ago and it was very fast and easy. I purchased my coins at 89 and with fees it cost $93.15 per coin (It will calculate everything on the page for you). Made the deposit at 2:10, had the bitcoins in my SR account by 3:45. The only downside is that you can only use them when the bank is open.

Guys. I don't know who else to ask.  :P
Has anybody tried to spoof a theme park ticket?  8)

My initial guess is that the barcodes created for the online tickets are activated on purchase so my instinct tells me there's no way. But somebody want to give their input on this?

Like I said. Didn't know where else to ask. XD
We were talking about Groupon and I just had the bright idea... can you forge a theme park ticket?

GL let me know and I'll take this post off.

i used to do ticketmaster etc, pm for details but majority of the time it is not worth it or hard to counter

For the reward yes.. But I just wanted to make sure no one is using any like this.. I am sure a reward like that has these ones stuck in at least a few peoples minds. I know something like that would stick in mine.

Just pulled off a 100$ Visa GC at a local Walgeens going to try and get some more...

I got denied by-
Tarjet (Would have worked but said invalid coup)
Walgreens (manager said no-go)

CVS and Walgreens usually haven't worked in my area.
Target doesn't take coupons for free items without need for purchase (as per their coupon policy)

Then who do you guys normally go to for the 100$ GC's? The walgreens that did work even offered to waive the 5.95 purchase fee, I said I would pay it...

Ok, so this CIC shit is starting to piss PurpleLotus off and I'm having to deal with the brunt of his storm over it.

So for that, I have to institute a few new Lotus policies.

Don't post about the CIC anymore. If you want to discuss the subject then you can message me directly and tell me whatever is on your mind. I need you to understand that I can't allow people to openly discuss the idea that there may be a reward out for shutting down this operation. If you violate this new policy then you very well might cause the exit of the Lotus name.

I hope everyone gets this. We are here to do great things at a minimal risk. Right now there is NO income and in fact I have lost money in trying to return this thing to us all to freely enjoy. I'd really fucking appreciate it if you did not bring attention to things which could put PL or myself at any risk. All of the pros here know that the CIC doesn't mean shit. We also know that the Lotus family is constantly trying to keep off their radar for the benefit of us all, but the reality is if a coupon ends up on the site, it doesn't effect the ability of the coupon to work at all. Again, in the entire history of this mission on SR, no one has ever reported back that a manager of any store ever mentioned the CIC. They are a non issue, but we still address it as an issue so that the customers have peace of mind. If this behavior continues, it might lead to our demise. I strongly caution everyone to knock that off. We are all batting 1.000 here in terms of getting free shit with 0 consequences, so let's not put us at risk of creating too high of a profile for the leads to be able to continue.

This message alone might cause me to wake up and find my vendor account is suspended, since some of you are drawing so much heat to me. There is only so many god damned colors in the rainbow of Lotus's. Trust me when I say that if at any point I felt this community is in danger then I'll be the first whistle blower. It means infinitely more to me than any amount of BTC ever could. People that know me, know I mean that. To every last one of you.

GL

*EDIT: For the new user, when I refer to the entire history of this mission. I am referring to the fact that PL introduced these coupons a year ago to SR, made thousands of sales and dealt with thousands of customers. Received all 5/5s and was one of the top rated vendors on SilkRoad before he had to retire and I am now trying to take over with his support and guidance. He racked up 600+ pages of reviews over that time, and now we are simply starting again with a fresh face and fresh thread. Without a doubt, the dude was one of the hardest working vendors on Silkroad and I'm simply trying to fill those shoes and provide that same service today. He was a visionary, no one could doubt it, and he still continues to share his visions and my job is to execute them and share them with you. To say that I'm here to make coupons is not giving credit to me, PL, or the next great idea we are working on to release on SR. If you knew the man, you knew he always had a next great idea. This is where I come in. I'm not just here to provide updates to the collections and keep them up to date on expiration. I came to bring SilkRoad the next new thing.

I think the people here who have been here since the start can all back me up when I say we "literally had to learn by doing". It takes experience...it's not some magical spell cast on you when you have the "opportunity" to use the collection. Let's not ruin a great thing and more importantly, the lotus family inc. name.

No worries. I know no one ever did anything meaning to harm. I continue to be given ideas every day and the idea of having a members only forum is fantastic and one I am looking into. I even asked administration here if they would help out with the idea, but that wasn't really possible, so I'll continue to look else where. It's a fine line because I want us to be able to talk freely and openly about things which exceed the limits of what a vendor review thread should consist of, but sometimes it becomes a risk to us all to talk so openly in completely view of joe blow. I think it would make us much stronger and present better ideas. But this is what it is, a public forum open to anyone no matter if they ever bought a listing off SR or not, so we have to pull the reigns back. I will continue to work on another outlet so we can maintain this thread as a thread that explains to the new user why this is an awesome product and they should join us.

I'll put it like this, NickMode made more money than I did since I started this account. I can't work for free, just like Walmart can't give shit away for free... wait... they can, that's what I introduced to SilkRoad. I'm confused now. I hope you are not. If I go out of business, then from that point forward the only coupons that exist on SR are from NM... can you imagine SilkRoad without a Lotus?

Don't get too worried by those comments. I'm simply trying to put things into perspective and let people see the challenge I'm faced with. I have no intent of backing down or not fighting until my last breath. This is the only way I know how to win. I need some support and I need it now. The next month will dictate whether we are still here in 2014 or not. I can remember in 2012 talking about how important it was to still be here in 2013, and here we are, by any means necessary.

This post is for the new members just discovering the forum (getting back on topic of vender review): this is a no-brainer purchase. Everything that PL and GL put out are no brainer purchases. You will make your money back the first time you go out. You will make your friends money the first time they go. Lather, rinse and repeat to save thousands on groceries. I've personally saved $400 in 3 weeks and i'm eating and drinking better than I ever have. I'm using name brand products i could never afford before. I'm drinking healthy juices that were out of my price range. This week alone I've saved three of my friends $250 total. You will not be disappointed by the product or the creator's work ethic. I will personally reimburse you for your purchase if you don't make your money back. All the veterans of this thread will laugh at my guarantee because there is ZERO percent chance of that happening. Get off the fence and hit ground running. You won't regret it.

^THIS. I'm in the same shoes. I hadn't had any kind of fruit or specialty drink (starbucks, naked juice, red bull, etc etc) in months. Yes, months. Now, I'm eating a bag of frozen dole fruit a day and have my whole fridge full of literally anything I want. And I did it all for less than 1/10th of what it costs the general public. I made 3x my money back in my very first trip to Wal-Mart (went a little overboard) lol. And I have saved $1,000's of dollars since purchasing the HC & OC collections just a few weeks ago.

I remember the whole reason I even got into this "club" if you will, is because I had purchased some drugs through SR 6 months ago and had just a little BTC left over in my account. Well I come back 6 months later and BTC had blown the fuck up so now I had way more $$$ than I had started with. I started looking on SR to see how I wanted to spend my money and I narrowed it down to one of the Portable Pen Vaporizers (~$150) and PL's coupons. I HESITANTLY went with the coupons, and I couldn't be happier with my decision. Seriously, anyone considering buying anything else on SR, do yourselves a favor and buy this listing first, then buy 10 of whatever you want on SR with all the money you save. I've already saved hella money and I only shop for myself and I guess my friends who I've been graciously giving food and drinks away to. If you have a family or a significant other, you will save far more than I have already.

So, thank you to the Lotuses that have kept these coupon listings available through all their hard work and superb customer service. Not to sound over-dramatic but these listing have literally changed my life. Thanks again!

I still haven't tried mine. I think there's some uncertainty sitting deep in me, which is weird, since this is pretty petty in comparison to lots of other stuff I partake in SR... but just to be sure, I can just go into a Safeway or Target and hand the cashier a handleful of coupons? Should I limit it to 3-4 a pass?

This is a great question and I think a lot of people are apprehensive at first.   :-\  (I was cause I'm a regular couponer)  It is normal to feel that way.  I was told by the Lotuses to start out small, a couple at a time until you get your feet under you to shop with confidence.  In real life, couponers are cut throat bargain hunters, and when your coupons are being scanned you can act like the shrewd bargain hunter, the tired housewife, or the struggling college student(or struggling anything for that matter).  I will go ahead and put myself out there, to make a a better example.  I have social anxiety disorder, and I can't be around large groups of people, in fact people I don't know make me really uneasy.(except you guys  :D)  When I first went out, I would get 1-2 items with some other things I was buying and use the self checkout.  It was great for a confidence builder, as long as you keep it under $40 in coupons.(Stores policies may vary by region)  Once you get used to the idea of using them and the internet survey taker story, it's a breeze to go through with a stack.  I would point out that most stores will only let you use 4 manufacturer coupons per item per trip. 

(*Note-I personally think it makes it easier to give an alibi when you sign up for survey sites listed on the coupons in the OC.  I just create a separate e-mail address for clearnet couponing in case anything untorward ever happened.*)

(*Note-It is also a good idea to NOT save your coupons on a hard drive that is not encrypted.  For noobs, the newer USB Sandisk Glide(NOT CRUZERS) have a AES encryption program included that is easy to set up and runs through a wizard so no one can access your files without your permission.  For others, there is a myriad of open source programs for free on the clearnet.)

A last piece of advice is learning to profile cashiers, in my experience it is easier to get a lot through with someone younger that may not have worked in retail for that many years, as opposed to a 15 year vet that has seen it all and will scrutinize them.(which doesn't matter since they look practically flawless once printed)  I also make mental notes when shopping who the managers are(for HC purposes), as I like to run HC gift cards on the younger generation as well.  They are more techno savvy about websites usually, so they're generally less prone to care about internet coupons and just scan them.  I hope this helps.

Protip-If your friends (or yourself) need jobs, encourage them to become cashiers!  :o It's paying dividends already, my friend got hired as the assistant manger at Wal-drug!!!   8)

+1 KARMA for you limitless.

I too have a social anxiety problem. And I will say that these coupons has actually boosted my ability to talk to people I don't know (at least the cashiers and managers).

Yes. As, limitless said, you shouldn't have your coupons saved on an unencrypted drive. The likelihood that your drives will get seized is very low, but it's always good to play it safe.

Having a coupon for the Sandisk would be nice. (:P PL and GL have turned me into a cheap bastard)
I think there was something for a drive in the HC possibly? I'm not sure 100% on that. Might have been NM's coupon pack (Yes I was dumb and bought his pack).

FYI, Safeway does not accept manufacturer coupons.  Although my first attempt at utilizing the coupon collection was at Safeway, and the cashier decided to type them in anyway, I wouldn't count on that happening.  Most every other store you can think of does accept them though.  As limitless mentioned, I would suggest starting with a few and working your way up to build confidence, but it's not completely necessary.

@limitlesshorizon420, is the hard drive encryption solely a preemptive measure in case law enforcement confiscated your technology?  Thanks for the USB suggestion as well.

It is always advised to know your stores coupon policy ahead of time. Check online, or call and ask. Finding out at the register is never the way to go.

All great answers. Wanted to emphasize start small, profile cashiers and research coupon policies so no one tries to BS you.
You've been sitting on the OC and haven't even tried it? just print 1 and try it. what's the worst that could happen? you get rejected and you build character :) I'm sure you read enough success stories to know what good can come of it

p.s protection is important but a precedent has been set where a judge can order defendant to give access to encrypted area.

Ya'll are making me want to go HC! The rush from the OC is diminishing. Although I had some trouble at Walmart last week. Threw a bitch fit and left with everything I had coupons for. Probably won't be back to that Walmart though.
Didn't even feel bad about taking their money that day. effers. ;)

Elaborate on what happened please. What was the trouble? How did it turn out?

My own fault for loosing patience with the long lines and opting for self checkout. Apparently it takes a manager and 3 employees to determine whether or not coupons are valid.  ::) I went up to customer service, told them I didn't have time for them to reach a decision because my children were missing their nap and demanded the coupons back so I could take my business elsewhere.
At that point they checked me out immediately and accepted all the coupons.

It's been said 100 times here, but don't use self checkout!

I know I keep returning with this question, but places would you guys reccommend using the HC Visa GC coupon at?

Working at Walgreens
Comes up Invalid at Target but they are willing to scan then!
Haven't tried WalMart
Rejected at CVS. (Lady Gave me the sketchiest look, almost as if she too owned the collections)

I am planning on trying to make 3 or 4 work sometime soon.

All my luck came from CVS. My buddy and me got 5 of the $100.00 gift cards in one day. We printed on glossy paper on a deskjet printer. What we noticed is that most of them look on the back. I will try to print some visa logo on the back see what happens. We even thought about putting a 800 number for verification  and have that forward to a burner phone. That way if they call, I can be in the car and answer hahaha.

Good Idea! Dude the lady at CVS stated firstly that they don't accept coupons for GiftCards. Which it does say in the policy. You think you just got some dumb cashiers?

Also, are they having to manually override yours? It's like my coupon scans but doesn't match correctly so they manually deduct.

This is at WG btw.

They scan fine, but need a manager to approve. Then we pay the activation fee and that's it.

Just hit up publix for some ice cream and had a friendly chat with the manager after the cashier marveled at how large the coupon I gave her was. Eventually the manager said that they weren't getting reimbursed from the manufacturer. The manager also told me that the manufacturer gave out a notice specifying exactly not to accept these coupons. I wasn't sure if she was pulling this out of her ass or if this publix is on their game. But worth noting. 2nd day in a row I've been denied using the OC. I was then told by the cashier that its not my fault, just sometimes when a coupon is too good to be true its a scam. The problem I'm having is how BIG some of these coupons are. 50% time a cashier says "wow these things are huge" then a manager comes over to check it out.

I'm going to try another publix soon that I've never used coupons at to see if the notice is widespread.

Target and superwalmart is stilll good though.

I thought he was referring to how large in $$ value....I've had a couple small issues w/the coupon being something like $8 off something that's $7.29 and the cashier not believing that they would make one that big.  Never kept it from working for me though, just some hiccups.

I THINK he meant how large the discount was. anyway I've heard publix does a good job training so it is possible.
Most cashiers that have been around for few years would see these as odd, you will most likely still pass them but a quick scan of the available cashiers and picking a youngster or a don't give a fuckster could save you time and hassle

The first time I used T4B's McDonalds coupon, I printed three to a page. They were HUGE, but they worked!

Unfortunately, even now that I fixed that (I found 6/page to be a good size), I think the first couple managers that approved it had a talk with someone in charge of the entire area, and not only do they know it's fake but the last manager gave me reason to believe that they might have specifically warned managers about me....

Hahahahaha i haven't rescaled the McyDees coupons either. Good god.

Part of the reason why I didn't resize some of these coops is because I saw a post a whlle back explaining that some ads are full page for a reason, as to not give away that a single source is making these. Now that I think about it maybe this was a comment about the HC made by PL or GL,  I have a hard time remembering.

Ah, rescaling. An important step I missed. Any specific size work best?

I only re-scale the ones that are single coupons on one page from the OC. I usually just open them up in MS paint, click "zoom out" twice, then stretch the page (with the white dot at the bottom of the image) to about 3 times the size of a coupon. I then use the snipping tool to snip the coupon then I copy and paste 2 more of the same coupon directly under the original image. The exact size is not real important imo. In fact, I feel it gives the cashier an idea of "this guy got these coupons from ALL over the web" when I have coupons in a few different sizes. I know there are other ways to r-esize images but this is the quick and simple way that I use. Feel free to PM if you want anymore clarification.

Hey guys, a little bad news on my end I suppose.

Well I was turned down for the 100$ GC at about 3 different walgreens & two local chains. A lot of the stores were going to do it but just simply were scared.

I got hungry & wanted steak so I went in a neighborhood walmart with a $25 Outback coupon.

Brought it to the guy, he scanned it visually, passed it off to another, he took it away for a while, couldn't find CSM, they let me have it barely.. Just cause no one was there to address it.

On a shitty note,neighborhood Walmart busted out their binder of "fake" coupons they have been told not to accept. They had a bunch of shit listed.

It was weird, it was like they all had the same format & looked just like ours, but they had different product pics & slight little differences.

This just worried me a bit.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

What can I say to an employee if they says the store can take my $100 visa GC, but are just to scared to personally.

Holograms are definitely a must with these, I have somehow been passing these on plain paper lmao w/o a holo.

So I hope I can snag a couple more $100 pops!

My story has normally been.

Is there a manager here?

Yeah I was hoping you could help me?

I won this voucher for a weekly grand prize on site I do surveys for.

They told me to bring it anywhere that VISA giftcards are sold & redeemable one time only.

I wish I knew a store that would for sure without hesitation take these!

Very cool, although I think I have a way that will resize you a little quicker.  Protip-It isn't Cialis (  :o )
If you right click any coupon file, it will open up a menu.  Click print and it will open up your printer's sub-menu to allow you to select paper size, type, quality, # of copies, etc...  On both my laser and inkjet there is a scaling option on the right side of this menu(I have HP printers), for full size, 4x6, 5x7, wallet etc..
Choose your scaling and make sure the whole coupon fits according to the scale you've chosen; there is a button on the bottom to "snap to frame" that you may need to un-check so that the image retains its original crisp resolution.  I can resize any coop image for printing in under 15 seconds.  ??? (I timed it)  Enjoy!

I saw a similar binder at Wall-drug they pulled out when I first did a forty off fifty visa(they go through way easier than the free ones IMO).  The manager laid it right on the counter and flipped through it looking for a coupon with a specific UPC, but the one he found was for a free visa that I'm pretty sure(90-95%) was a 4chan ripoff of NM's.  I cannot ascertain the validity 100% as I never bought anything from him because of what I read in the forums before I ordered.

(Protip-IMO(I'm not speaking for anyone but myself), that guys an assclown who ripped off a legend)

I have a friend who is now an assistant manager there(no thanks to me  :D ), and I'm pretty sure I might be able to get my eyes on it again to see what else is in there.  My daughter wanted candy so I was dealing with her at the same time.  I will work on it, as information can sometimes be more valuable than gold.

Holograms are definitely a must with these, I have somehow been passing these on plain paper lmao w/o a holo.

I'm only good at social engineering in certain situations and this isn't one.  I'm just not good enough to pass the higher $$ HC ones without holos.  Ditto on ones like vacuum sealer and xbox.  Can't even find the juicer around here.  I can't get any of the Wallgreens around me to accept any cards over $50 for the same reason a lot of others have.

If you PM me, I'll point you to some of the ones I've used and where I get them (about $25 for 200 of various types).  I found some small holos with a serial # that work 90% of the time for me without having to alter the coupon to make room for the slightly bigger ones.

I've never printed HC on anything but regular paper and black toner only. Now I'm not saying thats optimal, I'm just saying it's all I had. I did really well with just that method.

Check Bed Bath and Beyond for the juicer, this is where the idea came from and the first place it was ever passed.

Also, does anyone think I should sell the VISA dove Holos I have been stock piling? I've posted pics of them before. I had ideas for them, but have been too busy to launch them, so it might be best to just sell them off.

I have a friend who is 6 months pregnant, and very strapped for cash. I'm giving her copies of the baby related coupons in the pack so she can stock up on stuff.

I also know several college students with barely enough money for groceries who could make good use of some food coupons.

A lot of these people helped me out when I was in need, and now I have a way to really return the favor.

Ah, rescaling. An important step I missed. Any specific size work best?

Coupons come in a variety of sizes but the most common one is 2.5 x 6, the size of a dollar bill!!! Any smaller and the rate of processing errors increase, any larger and cashiers start looking at you weird. Remember, you want to blend in as good as possible and using anything close to a dollar bill size is going to go a long way in accomplishing that. It's also a subconscious trick, they're used to handling thousands of bills every day. They've been conditioned to accept this "size", use this subliminal conditioning to your advantage.

For those of you using Windows XP, Vista, 7, or 8: The built-in "windows photo viewer" works great. I just double click on a coupon and then click "4x6" or "5x7"or "3.5x5" in the print dialogue. Be sure to uncheck "fit picture to frame'. If you want to print multiple per page then increase the "copies of each picture" until no more will fit.

On the Swanson Chicken Broth Coupon we get:

"3.5x5" = 2.25" x 5in (near perfect)

"4x6" =  2.6" x 6in (perfect)

Takes less than 5 seconds to print this way. Also it lets you do a slideshow which makes picking your coupons out a little easier.

Went on more runs both for OC and HC. All was good with the OC, except the red bull was invalid at target, but the checkout lady overwrote. As for the HC coupons, we tried Target again. Before it would always say invalid for the free gift card coupons, but we noticed they were scanning the old UPC bar code. We asked to scan the new longer one and it worked. So now we always tell them to scan the new bar code. Maybe the old style needs to be removed from the gift cards, because it is the same number on all of them? Anyways, we got 4 Red Lobsters, 1 applebees, 2 more express, and the super wallmart my friends used two HC xbox coupons at the same time LOL got a joystick and another headset, and the manager approved. As well as approving the OC purchase there with saving of $80. This was at likr 1am when it was dead.

So you are getting everything you mentioned above at Target?

I have been turned down at multiple CVS's, Walgreens, Target & both WM's for the 100$ Visa GC...

It's getting me down, I think I may go try some of the full page ones or some American Express's.

Do you guys know if I can make any of the HC GC's work at the self checkouts? I assume they would since they scan.

The problem I keep having is the cashier calls the manager, manager calls loss prevention, cannot accept...

Tips anyone?

The $100 gift cards only worked at CVS for us. The express gift cards at Wallgreens, rideaid. The Red Lobster, applebees, subway, all work at Target electronic section. They need to scan the long bar code.

Just wanted to post my most recent OC experience to help some new people out regarding how to handle yourself during shopping.  I've had the coups for about 4 months now and have it down pretty good for the OC but there are some things I do to ensure it goes down super smooth.  Take note of the most recent trip:

Every time we go out I make it a point to go clean shaven, product in hair, looking nice and smelling nice too (there is enough psychology research to indicate that smelling nice is a good distraction for people and we want our cashiers to be distracted from their usual role).  I always mix in a few real coupons from the local paper and also a couple of regular products as well so that it looks completely legit.  This comes in super handy when the following situation occurs:

Walked into a bigbox store maybe a red one?  Anyway I took my daughter with me and right away checked out the cashier lanes in passing - plenty of young cashiers which is what I go for every time.  I load up the cart with a nice selection of goods and always keep under $50 in coupons total no exception.  I walk up to the cashier lane and find the cutest girl I can.  Let's go. 

First and foremost start immediately making small talk and or involve your child if you have one.  Be overly cute and try to chat up the cashier.  Being young they will think it is the greatest/saddest thing ever but most importantly they will be distracted from their normal job.  This time around I bring my coupons out and she SHRIEKS in excitement.  She starts shouting that she has an extreme couponer here and SHE LOVES IT!  She loves it so much she calls the manager over to watch.

Now at this point one of two things could have happened: 1). I'd be fucked. 2). I'd be legen-wait for it-dary.
I chose #2.  Because I had been chatting her up already I went with it hook line and sinker.  The first coupon, egglands best I think, didn't scan properly.  Great.  They start inspecting EVERY coupon individually but I also get involved too!  We have a great time and I give her a fake phone number to call me at too.

I know this is long and drawn out but I think it is important to know that YOU are part of the scam/deal and you need to start acting like it.  I won't be going back to that store for quite a while due to the scene that happened but it works out ok because in the end it went waaay better than it could.  I'm a psychology major/instructor and I know the importance of psychological distraction and how important it is to take someone out of their comfort zone. (p.s. my wife can't pull this trick off she doesn't have the social engineering skills to do so but don't underestimate the power of self-esteem).

Good luck out there and have fun!

Golden I know you're planning to re-release the HC collection, possibly with new additions. I was wondering if you could relist the original PL collection at the original price ($60). I really want to get my feet wet with the hardcore collection. I've been using the OC for a little over a month.

At any point you could add the new additions to the original collection as I imagine you've been quite busy lately. I want in on all the gift card fun!

What are your thoughts GL?

Just PM me, truth been told, I have been selling the HC this entire time and at a discounted price. I have my reasons it hasn't been relisted quite yet, so just ask me. When it is relisted, it will carry the original $60 price tag.

Ok so enough banging folks here!  LOL - decided to start banging the stores - graduated from the OC to the HC ended up trying Rite Aid - girlfriend scored a 50 Macy's - tried another Rite Aid and was turned down pronto!  Went to Walgreens and scored a second 50 Macy's - Tried CVS and some rather large round man denied out request and seemed irritated at us!  Went to another CVS and rolled in and out with a third 50 macys!!! Yeahhhhh... 

Anyone know if I slip out a few cards starting with (99366) and bring them into other stores that may not have the matching numbers?????  Also is anyone doing more than one card at one register?  Still a HC virgin so be gentle!!!

Lastly we decided to go back to our our comfort zone with the OC and banged like champions..... 140 in coupons - 90.00 at target in and out the cashier even tried to find us another store coupon that he was sure he had.  lol   Walmart self check out worked like a breeze as well..... no issue .... Oil, TP, Snuggle, Laundry Detergent, Water, Yougurt, Razors, Kleenex, Dove, Eggland and dish soap.... all total cost a little under 40.00 for about 200.00 in OC... Plus HC $150 on Macy's gift cards..

Walked into a bigbox store maybe a red one?  Anyway I took my daughter with me and right away checked out the cashier lanes in passing - plenty of young cashiers which is what I go for every time.  I load up the cart with a nice selection of goods and always keep under $50 in coupons total no exception.  I walk up to the cashier lane and find the cutest girl I can.  Let's go. 

First and foremost start immediately making small talk and or involve your child if you have one.  Be overly cute and try to chat up the cashier.  Being young they will think it is the greatest/saddest thing ever but most importantly they will be distracted from their normal job.  This time around I bring my coupons out and she SHRIEKS in excitement.  She starts shouting that she has an extreme couponer here and SHE LOVES IT!  She loves it so much she calls the manager over to watch.

Now at this point one of two things could have happened: 1). I'd be fucked. 2). I'd be legen-wait for it-dary.
I chose #2.  Because I had been chatting her up already I went with it hook line and sinker.  The first coupon, egglands best I think, didn't scan properly.  Great.  They start inspecting EVERY coupon individually but I also get involved too!  We have a great time and I give her a fake phone number to call me at too.

I know this is long and drawn out but I think it is important to know that YOU are part of the scam/deal and you need to start acting like it.  I won't be going back to that store for quite a while due to the scene that happened but it works out ok because in the end it went waaay better than it could.  I'm a psychology major/instructor and I know the importance of psychological distraction and how important it is to take someone out of their comfort zone. (p.s. my wife can't pull this trick off she doesn't have the social engineering skills to do so but don't underestimate the power of self-esteem).

Good luck out there and have fun!

This is important. 99% of the success in using the OC or the HC coupons comes down to psychology.

I no longer care what cashier I get. What store I'm at. How many coupons I have. As soon as I approach I begin talking. I smile. They ask where do i get them? Did I print them? I never let them ask "are they real". I beat them to the punch and start being their "life coach". I tell them to take surveys, write manufacturers, etc etc. I apologize tot he people behind me. etc etc. Never for one second do I project my insecurities on to those around me. When I'm checking out I've already convinced myself that I bought newspapers and clipped each one of these coupons out. No other reality exists.

When a manager is not on my side, it doesn't matter. I've already got a loyal soldier fighting for me, the cashier. Like I've said before, I had a manger tell me they had gotten fake coupons for video games, sony headsets, and food savers.....and STILL got them to give me the Beats headphones. People want to cheer you on, they want to be part of something great, LET THEM!!!!!

Don't get me wrong, this is some great info and tips. However, profiling cashiers is still my #1 goto tool. I picked this one girl today because I could hear her telling a customer what high school she went to. Ok I'll take you, you are in high school. I get to the front and we great each other. She begins singing while she rings up the loot, and I say "Hey, that ain't bad!" and then after a few more scans I say "Well, now you have me singing in my head". I let her ring up everything before I pull out a stack of coupons from my back pocket, and say "I'm glad no one is behind me, I have all these coupons" and then after awhile someone does get behind me. This chick was obviously very new and therefor very slow with the coupons. I said things like "I'm glad you take your time, some cashiers will just scan blindly and I am never sure if I get all my savings" and then the lady behind me, who is older starts to chime in, the cashier engages her too, and the lady asks me if I got those from the internet. I said yes, and then she asks me what sites, (I find the ladies behind me are even more prone to ask questions than the cashier is.) so I tell her, swagbucks, and purple lotus coupon club.The only reason I say this is because it was on my list of achievements and so I score it!  I then say, "With all the time it toko me to collect these, and clip them, I might have saved more just by going to work." and everyone laughs. The cashier then announces to the people behind me how much I saved, and then I walk out of there looking awesome.  Saved $180 and now my shit is stocked. This was not my only hit for the day, then I went to another local store and hit them up for all my favorite products.

Just for S&G, I looked up Purple Lotus Coupons on the clearnet to see what it would say & see if there's any semblance of an actual site out there.  First couple of results were variations of the "We have your [insert search term] coupons here!" which was pretty funny in itself.  There were a couple for the Purple Lotus Kava Bar.  But #4 was the PL Review Thread for SR with the title showing - Seller of USA Coupons.  At least it would provide me some entertainment knowing there might be someone out there trying to get to the link to print off the wonderful coupons but has no clue what's going on & why it's so difficult to get to.

Another funny note though, most of the rest of the next dozen results were for the PL dispensaries.  Think you can do some coupons to them?  ;D

edit: fixed some typos that were driving me nuts

Ha, yes I occasionally google that shit too. Go search the /SilkRoad/ subreddit for "PurpleLotus" and you will find some pretty funny stuff there too. One guy said, "His coupons work great, but PurpleLotus is an asshole."

I thought that was pretty hilarious. Am I really an asshole? (It's driving me crazy having to constantly talk about myself in the third person, I think by now it's safe just to knock that off.) Surprised? I doubt it. Regardless, a complete personality change was for the best. I was wrong to be enticed into anger, when I easily could have just kept my mouth shut and continued to dominate. Lesson learned.

@thelorax: we simply used 99366 because it was the most common manufacturer of those giftcards. We have a plan in place to expand those to cover other common formats, but by far we got the most popular one. Try CVS, Walgreens, etc, etc. K-Mart is different and you will find local/regional stores to be a mixed bag but often use 99366 too. When you go into a Walgreens, CVS, Riteaid, Target... you will see exactly why they are use the same UPC. The VISA giftcards they purposely get tricky with, but 99366 is still the most common one found. We simply try to cater to the most common UPCs found in the country. I get a bunch of requests to make high dollar ones for UPCs that I have never heard of before from anyone, but I can't focus on a UPC if it isn't going to benifit the majority of us. Then the complaints will really get out of hand.

Committing a crime or not. (Is this stealing) by slipping out a few cards starting with (99366) and bring them into other stores that may not have the matching numbers????? They are FREE right?

Ok so enough banging folks here!  LOL - decided to start banging the stores - graduated from the OC to the HC ended up trying Rite Aid - girlfriend scored a 50 Macy's - tried another Rite Aid and was turned down pronto!  Went to Walgreens and scored a second 50 Macy's - Tried CVS and some rather large round man denied out request and seemed irritated at us!  Went to another CVS and rolled in and out with a third 50 macys!!! Yeahhhhh... 

Anyone know if I slip out a few cards starting with (99366) and bring them into other stores that may not have the matching numbers?????  Also is anyone doing more than one card at one register?  Still a HC virgin so be gentle!!!

Lastly we decided to go back to our our comfort zone with the OC and banged like champions..... 140 in coupons - 90.00 at target in and out the cashier even tried to find us another store coupon that he was sure he had.  lol   Walmart self check out worked like a breeze as well..... no issue .... Oil, TP, Snuggle, Laundry Detergent, Water, Yougurt, Razors, Kleenex, Dove, Eggland and dish soap.... all total cost a little under 40.00 for about 200.00 in OC... Plus HC $150 on Macy's gift cards..

Personally when I'm feeling full of myself, I only talk in the third person. Its even more fun when I'm around people I don't know.

Contact your manager or loss prevention/security department.

Do not confront the individual! Your safety is more important.

If possible (and safe), get a copy of the person’s identification. Note that counterfeiters have been known to use store discount cards with false or stolen information.

If possible, have a security guard note the person’s license plate.

After the transaction, take a break and write down the date and the exact time of the transaction. Include a physical description of the individual(s) and be sure to save the suspected counterfeits. Do your best to handle the “coupons” on the edges to preserve the suspect’s fingerprints. Be sure to alert the person monitoring your security cameras to save the appropriate footage.

Never accuse anyone of anything! It could be embarrassing (and expensive) if you make a mistake. Instead, have your loss prevention/security department or local law enforcement agency handle it.

With the HC, used the $40.00 for the GoPhone. The manager at wallmart took the coupon and put it under the UV light they use to spot fake money and said it looks good LOL.
Also got 4 $25.00 phone refill cards, from target, wall-mart, wallgreens. 1 express card, 1 Starbucks card. So not too bad. Oh, and my Mom used the Honeywell $40.00 coupon from the lottery and it worked at Target.

We are in a Big City. You need to make a night out of it, we start at 9 AM and finish past midnight. Dress really nice and you need to be a good talker. Funny story about that GoPhone. On Friday my friend used the full page coupon to get the Xbox controller at wall-mart. Yesterday we went to a different wall-mart and he returned it for store credit, they gave him more then it was at the other wall mart LOL. Then he used that credit to get the GoPhone with the $40 coupon and ended up paying like $2.00 total for it haha. He is a good talker, he has this sob story how he lost his job and does online surveys all day long to support him self and just keeps talking and talking and the sales person/ manager get so tired of listening that they just give in.

Also got 4 $25.00 phone refill cards, from target, wall-mart, wallgreens. 1 express card, 1 Starbucks card. So not too bad. Oh, and my Mom used the Honeywell $40.00 coupon from the lottery and it worked at Target.

what area are u located ? in a small town?

seems like everywhere i go they are already on to it and wont take em.. SUCKS!!

i would be happy to get that phone one.. lol shit ..

drive 120miles away and see if that helps. make a night of it get a hotel etc.  only thing i can think of is u look very shady and they see right thru it

yeah.. i live in the hood.. im pretty sure i everyone has seen fake coupons.. and plus im not white..

i am bout to drive with a white friend out to a small town this weekend and go on a shopping spree

Sadly, the whole "not being white" thing likely works against you. I went to a ghetto ass CVS yesterday with a $25 Outback Steakhouse giftcard coupon from the HC. The lady in-front of me (black) had some coupons clipped from the newspaper and the checkout lady (also black) inspected them like a mofo. I handed the lady my Free $25 Outback coupon and she didn't even read the fine print before scanning, lol.

No employee handbook says "Could be embarrassing (and expensive)" and also there are tons of people who use fake coupons everyday without knowing they are fake, just like cashiers accept them not knowing. No one is going after people for using these. What is funny is the part about "Do not confront the individual, your safety is more important!"

HAHAHA like one of us would straight pistol whip a cashier because she questioned the validity of our coupons! Good stuff, very funny. Complete BS.

ANNOUNCEMENT:

By tomorrow (possibly tonight, but SR is down) we will release a brand new collection with over 200+ NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN COUPONS! This listing will sell for $30 and will only be available to purchase by previous Lotus customers. This means no one can buy this new listing until they first have purchased and used the Original Collection and this is for good reason!

For all of you who love when brand new content drops so you can be one of the firsts to take advantage of it, this listing is for you! A lot of things people have been asking for have been incorporated in this new collection and we have even bigger plans for it's future as we continue to expand on the next chapter in this thread.

This new listing is worth every penny x10 and will not disappoint, but some of you may ask... Why do we have to buy a new collection again? Well one answer is that GoldenLotus so far has not come close to the income PurpleLotus was bringing in. The amount of funds coming in and time being spent is easily less than minimum wage on some days. I simply can't continue working if I don't make some kind of change in order to keep myself in business.

In order to return myself to previous form, I will have to get myself back up on the front pages of my respective categories and establish my vending stats to "over 300". In the mean time, this new listing has many things which have been asked for over and over again, and the fee will keep things moving while we rebuild the business model of PurpleLotus which worked so well. That business model is failing in these conditions.

This is really exciting stuff and I'm 100% confident no one could ever make the claim, "Yeah, this wasn't worth the $30!"

200+ New and Exclusive, never before seen, made for SR only... COUPONS!

To be released early tomorrow. So be ready.

+ 1 for a true FLESHLight. I've been using the OC coupons to pick up a pack of Bounty Towels and taking one, soaking it in water, and microwaving on medium (she can't be too hot) for 30 seconds. Then, as I dream of lost MILFs in the diaper section of Walmart, as I appear with handfuls of LOTUS 99%-Off-Everything-In-The-Store Coupons, I whisper in their ear, "I'm happy to see you, and that other bulge in my pants is from all the gift cards we're going to use as we plunder the fuck outta every god-damn store possible."

One step closer to the milf achievement. i had some milf bait (pampers and huggies and pampers wipes coups) in my pocket and went the the diaper aisle (while i was with another girl, told her i was going to look at video games). i found one mom and handed her a small stack and she jumped up and down and kissed me on the cheek. now granted, she wasn't attractive in the least bit but i'm much closer to my goal than i was before. the concept has been proven.

This may not be a popular suggestion but I'll make it anyway....

GoldenPurbleLotus: The only way to secure your income from this long term is going to be a subscription service. Think about it. People are using these every single week to save hundreds of dollars. What you are providing here isn't a one time tangible item. What you are offering is a "service". Services have fees. This business model is as old as the hills and it works well. And what "service" out their actually MAKE you money? As far as I'm concerned GPL has directly put thousands of dollars in my families pocket....

Do what you will, I may be 100% wrong, just a suggestion. :)




P.S. I love how my opinions keep getting me negative karma...lol.
Title: Re: Vendor: GoldenLotus Review Thread - Seller of USA Coupons
Post by: wraithe on April 24, 2013, 02:30 pm
subscription base means paying for new expiration dates, also means exp dates would be hardcoded to prevent fraud.

i guess as a community youd have to decide what you want. if you make lotus enough money thru new listings then subscription wont be necessary
that means u get more coupons and worryfree updates

i say worryfree because anyone with paint can change a 6 to a 9 but when that shit is hardcoded yea not so easy

atleast thats how i would see it.  I wouldnt have an issue with a sub, i mean i use it every week, a cut for what i save is reasonable in my eyes.  now on the oc i save 50-100 weekly so a $10 monthly fee isnt absurd thats $10 for 200-400 of savings 217-433 to be exact. so thats a 2.3-4.7% commission. 

just seems like more hassle on lotus end having to do all that if he can make similar thru new listings.

All this maintenance and DDoS none sense is getting in the way of new coupons.

As far is the debate on my business plan, I'm certainly open to everyone's opinions for sure. The day I stop listening to the customers, this is certain to fail. The way I see it, future updates on the collections should remain free. It would be going against one of my main principles if I did otherwise, but let's visit the subject again in late July. If things are going well, I have no excuse to try to make people pay for updates. I simply need to get this back on track and back to the level that PurpleLotus was on. How do I do that? Easy, drop a new collection. Got some other really exciting projects in the works. We aren't just making coupons and new collections, we are trying to change the game.

Remember that by supporting the new collection, we can assure updates will always be free on all collections. Let's support each other.

Post by: GoldenLotus on April 24, 2013, 03:55 pm
Just a sneak peak at what we are in store for while we wait on SR to come back:

The new collection will contain a mix of coupons that are all brand new.

This time, all new gift cards are done with both 99366 and 76750 UPCs. This is the first time 76750 UPCs have been introduced on a large scale on coupons so it will give us twice as many options on where we can use gift cards and also it opens us up to new store options that have NEVER seen any gift card coupons previously, like K-Mart who exclusively uses 76750 UPCs and many others.

If you buy the listing in the next few weeks, it will be smoking hot if you use the 76750 UPC because no one is going to say "Yeah, we were told not to accept these." because certainly they have not been told that... yet.

Let's get ready, about to be some fireworks!

As for the new UPC Gift Cards.... Not sure where I can use these. I haven't been anywhere that uses this UPC system. I've noticed that many people say KMart, but I thought they went out of business years ago. I went on maps and the nearest Kmart to me is a good 250miles away.

Any other stores people know about that have the 767 UPCs?

I have seen the 767 gift cards at Staples and Khols. All the supermarkets have them here, but it's impossible to use them there. Staples will be easy.

Ok. I will look into Staples.

Anybody used the gift card coupons at Best Buy? I haven't been able to find a clear Mfc coupon policy.

I have used the Xbox Point Coupons 2 times at best buy, so they do take them.

+1 KARMA for you. I will be trying iTunes and XBOX at Best Buy today. Will report in a few hours.

ITUNES has their own upc, ive never seen a 76750 one

It was a pretty nice transition. I felt like I accomplished my goal. Thanks for your continued support scout.

I still don't like authority figures, but you ain't half bad bud!  :P

Glad to see GL has finally admitted to being PL.  :P 



I asked you about this directly when GL first appeared and you insisted it wasn't you.  lol.  Anyway, it has been well known from the beginning and not a problem - vendors who are banned are always allowed to create a new account and start fresh.

LOL I do believe my exact words were, "Are you serious right now?!" which was my way of saying that your a smart kid and I know you know exactly what the deal is. PurpleLotus needed to let the heat die down and GoldenLotus needed to introduce a new attitude and show that there was in fact a better way to handle trolls and scamming competition than by arguing with them on the forum. I've learned a lot of lessons on this journey. Like how to thrive in a free market. All this time I had forgotten that if I just stayed focused on what I do best, then there was no way anyone was going to hold a flame to me. It seemed like a good idea just to go ahead and be someone different for awhile, while making it boldly obvious it was still the same man behind the curtain.

So now the plan is to just do what I have always done and provide excellent customer service while busting my ass, and try to show more maturity when anything takes away from that.

Anyways, if I had a bitcoin for everytime I could be quoted saying "We love you, scout!" on this thread or the forums in general, I'd have like 6-7 bitcoins right now, which would be sweet. So with that being said, even though I'm not a big fan of authority still, We love you scout, and you are always welcome here on this thread!

This next coupon is for +1 to scout!

Went out to make a run. Went to Walmart (initially looking for a Sonic GC) and got a $25 iTunes card, no problem.
Second stop, Best Buy. Full page XBOX 12 Month Gold worked fine. He had to call a manager up. Then the cashier had to manually input (I'm guessing with all Mfc. Coupons because the manager asked "How do you input manufacturers coupons?") the prize of the coupon.
Third stop, another Walmart. Still no luck on a Sonic GC, so I went with another $25 iTunes. Went to the cashier, she scanned the GC, scanned the coupon, typed the amount off. Total = $0.00. And the dumbass bitch couldn't figure out how to finish the transaction. Called some old bitch over and she was like "let me check on this coupon." 10 minutes later another bitch came out and said "we can't accept this coupon" and showed me a highlighted part of their coupon policy that stated they do not accept internet coupons for free products (which I knew about). I asked her if I were to get a copy from the manufacturer would they accept it since it wouldn't be an internet coupon and she said "i'm not sure." So time to make a page of iTunes GCs that look like they came from the manufacturer.

After this encounter I started getting a pretty bad headache, so I decided to call it a day (my days usually consist of ~$150-$300 worth of GCs).

Also, while I was at Best Buy I did some looking around.
I found these GCs for EA's Origin. They come in $20 and $60 forms. They are "powered by FastCard" so they have the UPC is 99366.

A pretty surprising and dissapointing experience today. Been here for awhile and I have been consistent in obtaining anything from any collection in the last month or two 90% of the time in my "area". Haven't took a stab @ the kindle yet so decided to go to the ONLY place who had them and my "buddy" worked there so figured it'd b no problem. To my surprise, not only was I denied by the manager, but he told me that he had seen the EXACT coupon 5 times TODAY. Hmm that's odd...moved onto my main gc headquarters where I have never failed bc I don't abuse the place and only use one at a time. This is where things got strange. Not only was I denied for the first time after obtaining about 20 gcs but was told by the woman she was sorry but someone had come in the last two days and threw down multiple gcs at a time. WAY TO RAISE RED FLAGS DUMB***. I really hope whoever here that decided to come into my turf and mess sht up for me and any possible fellow hc/ocers leaves what was my 'pot of gold' area. Seriously...if I see anyone wit these collections around my area throwin down multiple gcs/hcs...I'm gonna shove the hard ones up ur ass after a chat. Sorry for venting but the chances of this happening are so slim that I'm still in shock that someone here would first of all, ever go to the same place as me (I'm not gonna explain why...not that hard to figure out)...but the BAD part is that you could have seriously screwed me and possibly others. These aren't something you abuse! I guess all good things do have to come to end, just wish it didn't have to be this way. Thanks GL/PL for alll you've done for me and the community that have used your knowledge wisely and amounted to so much over the last 6 months. Gonna lay low for awhile.

Thanks for the tip on the SC a few pages back.  8) Last weekend, I was in and out of each of about 10 Big Blue Bitches in under five minutes, from the time I rolled into and out of the parking lot even, nabbing a free $25 food card each time.

Going to be a tad bolder next time and get two consecutive transactions. $25 more for about 15 seconds more time inside. More than that sounds like an invitation to unwanted scrutiny, and I really get off on the omnipotent power trip of walzing in and out unnoticed.

And it just dawned on me that I should try the $25 VISA's...

So I have come full circle, having begun this transformation of supply procurement with SC, to gain confidence, soon eschewing it for the benefits of the live cashier, and now returning to it for the amazingly easy $25 + $25 gc (and maybe VISA).

As I haven't posted for a while until today and I haven't even made a token tip to him lately, I have to say once again that Golden/Purple Lotus is the best vendor on SR - or anywhere else for that matter - and that his products will improve your life in ways beyond 'just' saving $500-$1,000/month on food for your family. Among them, boosted self-confidence and a Zen-like appreciation for the other denizens of the retail circle of life: the apathetic cashiers & clueless managers that do half the work for me, the LP goons to whom I am now invisible & the methhead shoplifters that they're geared to deal with.

I can't wait for the new collection. $30 for 200 NEW coupons (w/ free updates!) sounds like a steal! ;D I've been meaning to pass at least a token tip to GPL, too, so I hope that SR gets stable again before I get caught up in this weekend's pillaging.

You do not have to pay Hospital Bills, there not supposed hurt you in any way.

Just look, smile, crumble in to a wad, and do the slam dunk on the trash bin.

Oh they will call you, their people, and the collectors will call you.
You say... "Hello, Me no Speak English, and hang up."

Then back to the good ol hospital care of USA!!!

Yeah bud, I'm doing well. I started to wonder what was up with you after messaging you Monday with some great news, you should find it when you check your SR messages. I'll look into the hospitals barcode system and see if I can make you up an ObamaCare full page ad or something :-) LOL, but for now I think you will be pretty thrilled with the gifts you missed out on a couple days ago. I spent Christmas eve in the ER once, it was nice to come home and get to open gifts... and you sir, have gifts to go open from the Lotus family from a couple days ago.

Hope to hear from you soon, and I'm about to go stuff a copy of the new collection on top of your other surprises. I haven't even been able to check SR to see if it's back up, but at this point the new listing won't go live until several hours from now, even if SR is up. I gotta take off here in a minute.  8)

I've used my hospital's "Charity Care" for an ER visit a few years ago--it knocked off 5k off a $5400 bill, the only thing I had to pay for was for the specialist to look at x-rays for 10 minutes. You have to be making a modest wage to qualify, then it goes on a sliding scale most places.

GL,

I went through some of the old posts I missed and I can understand your dilemma regarding a lack of recurring and sustainable income. I know that we all very much appreciate the work you have done and definitely would like to see you stick around.

I believe that one way to guarantee your longevity here would be to not only be more systematized, but also ensure 'recurring income'.

As you have noted, many of the people on SR who are going to buy your product already have and new sales have declined. As more and more people become active on SR, sales might pick up again but you will find that over the long term, you can expect  X number of coupon packs sold per month. The longer your history on SR, the more reliable and accurate that number will become. Such is the business of sales... you can forecast future income...

I speak for myself here but I believe if we could count on you to release a new pack of lets say 10-20 new coupons every 1st of the month, that we would gladly pay a 'subscription fee' of idk what would be fair but maybe $5 to $10 dollars per month. You could take set up and issue forum surveys on what products would be the most sought after. Exclusive, highly anticipated coupon updates could fetch a higher premium than simple, less advantageous coupon packs. Every month, your loyal followers who are interested in the new packs and have helped create them with the surveys will pay the subscription fee. Some months I might decide not to buy only because I dont want the coupons included. The biggest benefit herer is that as you sell more and more packs, the 'recurring income'  from the coupon updates will become greater and greater.

I know this goes against your own principals in that you said you wont charge for new updates but lets face it GL and all others, this is NOT an appropriate business model for the long-term. Some people will bitch about it, but if it has to be done, it has to be done. As long as you are fair in your pricing, honest in your dealings, and reliable with your updates, we all win. Don't feel bad about it. We need you stay motivated and active on SR so that we continue to get great service and great coupons and if this is the way to do it, then let it happen...

What does everyone else think?

Also the current price is just a grand opening introductory price. I think everyone who has owned the previous collections can see that the value of this collection is higher than the price is currently set to (even by PL standards where a small amount of coin is worth thousands in savings). Just making that it's clear this offer is for those willing to be the first adopters and reviewers of this new collection before setting it to a more realistic price that is still an amazing value to everyone. All previous customers are welcome to purchase it immediately, and today would be the best logical choice to buy if you are 100% confident in the listing and don't need to see others opinions first.

Yup, I too took the plunge.  I went hard with the Visas right when they came out and haven't had much fun with the HC since, thinking to play it safe do to the growing popularity.  So, what does PGL do?  Gives us a clean slate!  I plan on having a shopping spree tomorrow or Saturday  ;D  I'll be sure to report back with results.

Now, for things like Amazon cards where the purchase is registered to an individual, what's the worst case scenario?  I know that people have been loving the iTunes and xbox coupons from the beginning.  Have there been ANY negative ramifications?  I feel like that's just such a simple paper trail back to you, but it doesn't seem to have caused a single issue that I've read about here.  Did I miss them?  Can anyone explain to me how my view of this is skewed?

Anyway Long live Lotus!  He's like those ol' Buddy Lee jeans commercials, "Can't Bust 'Em!"

No one has had any issues by using gift cards to do things with iTunes, Xbox live, etc... Microsoft is not going to knock on your door for the illegal copy of Windows 7 you downloaded and they won't do it for the Xbox live pass either. As far as consequences, I would say it is as likely that you face punishment for pirating software as it is for using these cards. There are simply too many loop holes and ways you could have gotten the card, such as a gift, or buying it off craigslist or from one of those GC resellers and so on... Ultimately no one will bother, because there is nothing to say you did anything wrong.

Amazon isn't going to spend all day with a task force calling loss prevention at each store and demanding to see the video of some random dude paying in cash. Why would LE even waste the time? Anyways, I'm being alittle extreme with my example hopefully to put you at ease with your concern.

If it really makes you nervous, then just skip the Amazon card, or hell, buy an SR vendor account and offer "Purchase any item you want from Amazon with Bitcoin!" then all you do is take their address and place the order they request with the GCs. Now you turned GC to BTC!

Post by: GoldenLotus on April 25, 2013, 06:52 pm
Well, that's certainly an interesting way to ask for help... I could show you how to get word for free, but to answer your question, assuming you use Windows, just open them in Windows default picture viewer and when you go to print you will have the option to choose multiple layouts for multiple pictures to one page. By playing with that a little you will find the perfect size for you and be able to easily print 3-4 per page. Get a smart phone UPC and GS1 barcode scanner to check for a successful if you arent sure if it's too small

@backthatassup: Try new stores. I would highly recommend using the 76750 option if you can, because these stores will have never seen any of these before today. There is no reason they should have any issue with manufacturer coupons, and the idea that it happens at every store you go to, assuming you've tried multiple locations, is out of the ordinary. This release has no Full Page ads in it yet, but there are several in the works to be added in a very quick set of additions. We came prepared this time. Gotta get back what we lost, and in record time.  8)

Any general tips for using the new coupon release. I've been roughing the OC at a steady pace, only black and white...RESIZED ;) I've gotten those old stores that have denied me to gladly accept these coupons again. I just needed to adjust my tactics.

I just think that black and white coupons for gift cards have a high chance of getting turned down in my area. GL/PL you say you use the good ole fashioned B+W for the gift cards. How do you make it work? I may have to send you a PM on SR.\

Can anyone recommend a good card stock and proper hologram?
Please PM me a couple pointers to get myself going with the gift cards.

To me this is MY HC and I want to treat it like I did with the OC...baby steps...then improved confidence...and finally boss man junior.


Waiting to convert my paycheck into some bitcoin and whilst I wait I need to prepare for what I'm about to dive into.

Good Day!

As has been stated many times before, the main thing is to gain confidence from using the OC. You will gain a high amount of self confidence and some abilities in social engineering. Another big thing is to profile the cashiers. If they look like they don't wanna be there, that's awesome, just don't get somebody that might be a total dumbass and not know how to work with coupons. What I like to do is find a cashier I think is a good match, and stand there looking through candy bars or the gift cards and listen to how the cashier works with customers. If they seem like COMPLETE newbies I try to steer clear of them. Stay away from old ladies, and people that look like they have worked in the business for a while.
Walmart is best for GCs that don't require manager approval (those $50 and over) because as per their coupon policy they are not allowed to accept internet coupons for free products. That being said I've only been turned down twice on GC's $50 and over there. It just shows the stupidity of the CSMs on their own policies.
I personally have yet to pass a GC coupon at CVS or Walgreens, but I know some people on the forum have, so it might be worth trying.

As I said the biggest thing is to just have the mentality that these coupons are real. Have the confidence built of from using the OC, and just work work work. It's trial and error. Never be too scared because the worst that can happen is you get told no.

Nah, we don't make coupons for firearms for felons. BC has been convicted of more crimes than Hitler would have been had he not offed himself. Making a coupon to arm BC would be about equal to breaking every rule SR ever made, and we would instantly be banned for it. Our survival depends on keeping BruceCampbell away from firearms.

Just got out of the ER a few hours ago and the first thing I do is log on here to read what I've missed....Sick huh? lol!
Blindman,I've been better but thanks for asking....and PL I hope you are doing well man.Can't wait to see what's in the new 200+ collection.
I have a semi-chubber just thinking about it.PEACE guys I will be back on tomorrow I hope.
Do you have a coupon for a shitty 18hr hospital stay that's gonna prob be 5k??? LMAO!

Yeah bud, I'm doing well. I started to wonder what was up with you after messaging you Monday with some great news, you should find it when you check your SR messages. I'll look into the hospitals barcode system and see if I can make you up an ObamaCare full page ad or something :-) LOL, but for now I think you will be pretty thrilled with the gifts you missed out on a couple days ago. I spent Christmas eve in the ER once, it was nice to come home and get to open gifts... and you sir, have gifts to go open from the Lotus family from a couple days ago.

Hope to hear from you soon, and I'm about to go stuff a copy of the new collection on top of your other surprises. I haven't even been able to check SR to see if it's back up, but at this point the new listing won't go live until several hours from now, even if SR is up. I gotta take off here in a minute.  8)

Hey guys, could someone give me some help. I downloaded all 7 files I believe it was but one did not download correctly. It must be the one with most of the food items because I'm missing Tostitos, Naked Juice etc.. Which set were these coupons in? I don't want to re download all of them

no my friend you got a little mixed up,$50.00 and OVER requires a CSM to come and approve/turn the key.Try and do multiple transactions at different times to avoid the red flag of being noticed too much,with me it is hard because I am fucking gigantic and a social magnet,but I still do very well when I play my cards right.
Once in awhile I want to get greedy and I go to target where there IS NO limit on the amount of savings,just a caution though not to use any 1 coupon worth more than 40.00 there.....I learned the hard way,lol
Good luck.

Hey guys, complete coupon noob here. I bought the adv coupon, and I'm confused. I looked at the back of the mobil gas cards, amazon cards, AmEx cards at CVS and none of the barcodes match up. Do you guys know which one of the two works at CVS? And what is a "safe" amount that will work?

I've had a lot of success with the grocery stuff at target, lol. Yay free dijorno.

No self checkouts at the Walmarts in your area? That's been what's working for me, although some have signs saying that gift cards can not be loaded at that register. I just use the one next to it.

No CSM is required at Walmart if you keep the savings under $50.01. The GC's work at the self checkout.  And you can check your coupon with an app (not sure the name of it) to make sure it will scan before using it.

so if i grab a 50 gc lets say for the gap....take it to the self check at wally i will not need a csm? or is it any UNDER 50?
also what are you all printing on for the gc? anything special? im just using the normal paper.sorry for the repeat question im sure thats been covered...id assume that normal paper would be best, if its on special paper it would lead me to believe that your telling the cashier it was sent to you in the mail?

great idea on the mobile hotspot! it had me thinking about security, i was wondering if there was anyone out there that had info on mobile security for idevices? pm me if you have looked into this id love to get more info...ill even throw a tip your way for your troubles

The wally's in my area seem to have conflicting coupon practices.  I had one cashier who wasn't allowed to scan coupons over $4 without approval from her supervisor.  The super didn't even look at it, just shouted from 4 lanes away to send it through.  That particular trip, that was the only coupon I was using.  Other times I've had no issues or even second glances with the GC coups.

I hope I find some stores with the self checkout soon.  So far, I'm 0-7 for the ones around me.  I know a couple used to have them but converted them to express lanes w/ cashiers.

Here's the inside dope on how the Blindman scores at Walfart...I grab 2 $25 gift cards, make sure numbers match(doesn't matter what the card is, meaning I grab a Red Robin card with a Starbucks coupon), and head to self checkout. Run the transaction like normal, load the cards, scan the coupons and drop 'em into the slot. Done.

I make sure the cashier is busy and not watching their screen or me. You can have a pal create a distraction, then run 2 transactions and walk with $100 in gift cards. Same thing if it's busy, or the cashier is fucking stupid.

Most of the time the 'NO GIFT CARDS' signs don't prevent the coupons from scanning. Plus, I just knock 'em over with my gimp stick, fuck 'em!!

Everyone saying the numbers match up: What numbers are you guys matching up? I don't see any GC's with 76750 or 99366 on the back. They all have huge numbers on the back.

Post by: shrektastic on April 27, 2013, 07:46 pm
I've got to see how to load the cards,that seems like it is the only roadblock between me and GC freedom town.
Thanks for the rundown buddy...maybe I will get an insider that works the self checkout area and slide her a giftcard every once in awhile in exchange for her complacency/looking the other way with the reasoning that "It takes too damn long in a regular line and I've got hoes to bang and donkeys to beat" lol

Everyone saying the numbers match up: What numbers are you guys matching up? I don't see any GC's with 76750 or 99366 on the back. They all have huge numbers on the back.

They are talking about the first series of 5 numbers found on the UPC of the giftcard. In some situations you will actually find no UPC on the giftcard, and rather a long series of numbers, sometimes hidden behind a tab on VISA giftcards etc, although this is rare, it does happen that you find these unique cards, all you do is read that long ass series of numbers until you find 76750 or 99366 somewhere within that string. If you see those numbers, then you have the right card for that coupon. It should be easier 90% of the time since you will find the actual UPC mostly on Giftcards.

Lot's of questions here, which is good, and we all have our own methods we use and there really isn't one universal correct practice, there is just good practices and bad practices. Things vary in every area and so for that reason, I develop my own methods situationally and realize what works for me is not always going to be the best strategy for others. Personally what I do is use a live cashier and approach with only the GC and the coupon. I never use more than one GC at a time. Other people will go with a GC coupon and other items, while other people will go with items and multiple giftcard coupons. It really comes down to what works for you.

Some people use color, some people use black and white (like myself), some regular paper, some nice glossy stock paper, some people even use holograms. People ask me black and white questions like what is the best, and I don't always have black and white answers, but I will say this, my coupons look amazing in color and if you have that as an option then you should be printing all Giftcard coupons in color as they become more legit looking. Hell other people even use more elaborate methods than described here.

I have been trying with the 50 free Visa GC at wally world and target have not been able to get either of the the UPC numbers to scan. I tried the coupon with  76750 and one with 99366, at wally world the gift card had the strip that the cashier pulls off got the stores to scan em and said if they scan they will take em but no luck with the scan. The CVS in the area have the same GC with the pull strip is there certain GC for visa that will work?

Would you say the GCs are more effective at self checkout or cashier? Also, when you guys go on GC runs, do you come up with some items, or just go straight for the GC?

i normally have a few items with me soda or condoms or something.  that way i didnt invest a lot of time if for some reason i got rejected but at the same time it wasnt the only reason for my trip

Dude, if you don't know exactly which one you are suppose to be using, then you are using them wrong. In your case (and I have only seen this with VISA and MC, not normal giftcards) You have to take one of those VISAs and peel the tab back just a little and identify either 99366 or 76750 in that line of numbers. If you do not find those exact 5 digits in the series, then you have the wrong type of card. Don't check the same type of card more than once, you'll get your answer the first time.

Again, if you do not know how to know if the coupon is going to match the gift card you have, then you don't need to be using these yet. You should know exactly how to identify which coupon goes with which giftcard. Usually this only requires matching the first series of five digits in the UPC on the coupon and the item, but in thise case you have to take an extra step cause VISA is tricky. If you find a match by using the strip method, then put that card back on the rack and grab another one, or atleast that's how I do it.

I have been matching the Visa GC Upc under the strip with the proper coupon What I am saying is that even with the right number the Visa GC coupon wont work for me. I was wondering what I was doing wrong I have not had any problems with any of the other GC. I know how to match the coupon to the item by the UPC codes. Anyway these are awsome coupons your the best GL ;D

ANNOUNCEMENT:

By tomorrow (possibly tonight, but SR is down) we will release a brand new collection with over 200+ NEW, NEVER BEFORE SEEN COUPONS! This listing will sell for $30 and will only be available to purchase by previous Lotus customers. This means no one can buy this new listing until they first have purchased and used the Original Collection and this is for good reason!

For all of you who love when brand new content drops so you can be one of the firsts to take advantage of it, this listing is for you! A lot of things people have been asking for have been incorporated in this new collection and we have even bigger plans for it's future as we continue to expand on the next chapter in this thread.

This new listing is worth every penny x10 and will not disappoint, but some of you may ask... Why do we have to buy a new collection again? Well one answer is that GoldenLotus so far has not come close to the income PurpleLotus was bringing in. The amount of funds coming in and time being spent is easily less than minimum wage on some days. I simply can't continue working if I don't make some kind of change in order to keep myself in business.

In order to return myself to previous form, I will have to get myself back up on the front pages of my respective categories and establish my vending stats to "over 300". In the mean time, this new listing has many things which have been asked for over and over again, and the fee will keep things moving while we rebuild the business model of PurpleLotus which worked so well. That business model is failing in these conditions.

This is really exciting stuff and I'm 100% confident no one could ever make the claim, "Yeah, this wasn't worth the $30!"

200+ New and Exclusive, never before seen, made for SR only... COUPONS!

To be released early tomorrow. So be ready.

 8) 8) 8)

GoldenLotus

Here is what you missed HEATFan.

and @pipedude100, sorry I jumped to conclusions. I actually never saw one at Walmart here, and I know most Targets won't take a $50 coupon. Try a KMart, that's ripe for the pick'ns now.

theres your problem, you tried "A CVS" this is a numbers game.

think of your scummy friend thats always getting laid.  how does he do it?  he goes up to every check that he sees and says lets fuck. hes gonna get turned down 95 times but that 96th time hes inside, literally.  Point is its a numbers game ive had runs where i had 7 or more turn me down then went on a 12+ spree .  1 is not enough, ad a zero then report back lol

+1. This is some true advice. I probably bat a 90% acceptance rate and I consider myself to be one smooth fuck. If I get rejected 10% of the time I would imagine "most people" get rejected 50%+ of the time.

GL since SR might be down for at least a few more days, is it possible to gain access to the AC privately? Perhaps I can transfer some coin to another wallet of yours. Thankfully I kept my BTC in my own personal wallet before SR went down.

Let us all know what our short-term payment options are.

Thanks for being awesome!

Went out yesterday and got a FoodSaver, a $50 Visa and a $50 Amazon card.  I tried a couple of the American Express ones (Walmart and Kmart) and got turned down both times.  I don't seem to have much luck with 3-4 to a page credit card coupons.  But I got the Amazon one at Walgreens and the Visa (one of the full pagers) from CVS.  The foodsaver was from Kmart.  3/5 for a quick run last night, so nothing to complain about.  Does anyone have any tricks for the little cards?  Oh, and I wasn't about to find any BP or Mobile gift cards, where have other people seen these?

Went to Office Depot yesterday and got the free logitech mouse (up to a $75.00 value) from the Hardcore Collection. I have never tried any of the coupons at Office Depot but this transaction went so flawlessly I will be adding Office Depot to my list of routine stores I hit up when I make a couponing trip.

I would even go as far as recommending beginners to use this coupon at Office Depot to see how easy the HC can be to pass. I walked in to Office Depot with my full page Logitech mouse coup, went straight to the mice, felt everyone of them to ensure the perfect grip for all my computing needs, grabbed the one I wanted (Logitech® Marathon Mouse M705, Gray/Black) and went straight to the cashier. She was pleased to help me, scanned the mouse, scanned the coupon, I paid, she smiled and said have a nice day. There was no manager approval needed, no questions, no funky looks, all went well. Results may vary but I was extremely comfortable and was never given the sketch eye at this Office Depot. Just my report.

so it's my understanding there are 3 coupon packs to buy now?  I bought the original for groceries and the advanced for the gift cards, charcoal, and popsicles lol.  I thought the advanced was $30 and I just realized I payed $50 for it.  Is the hardcore still for sale with different gift cards and how much is that?

There are 4 packs to my knowledge.

1. The Original Collection (OC)
2. The Hardcore Collection (HC)
3. The Lottery Collection (LC)
4. The Advanced Collection (AC)

You can check GL's signature for prices when SilkRoad goes back up. He also sells coupon making lessons if you're interested in learning to make your own coupons for any item you want. Vets, feel free to correct me if my information is inaccurate.

P.S. GoldenLotus, I don't think it would be a bad idea to update the original post in this thread with links to all 4 coupon packs and the list of coupons that are in each pack. I know people can click on your signature and view your seller page on SilkRoad, but SilkRoad has been down a lot lately and people are often too careless/lazy to do that. Updating the original post with this information would probably answer a lot of noobie questions for those looking to buy some of these packs. Just a suggestion. One love.

So I learned from Blindman420 and GL/PL about how to "work" the people at the self-checkouts and I gotta say.....WOW.
I learned from the girl at the station how to scan my own cards and that if it has a stripe that needs to be swiped and activated,that a rep must come over and scan their badge and key in some BS,BUT.....if it's just a barcode(there are many) all you do is scan it,choose the coupon for payment method and fucking WALK with that bad boy.
God DAMN I love you little fuckers on here.It's like I have a renewed sense of worth....To pillage and RAPE all of the walmarts and fuck them just like they have fucked US for decades.

Have to say that Tarjey really is one of my favorite places to be on a Tuesday afternoon.  Not only is it filled with dozens of MILFS but every freakin coupon that I used scanned with no issue.  Its really hard for me to contain my smile at the end of each transaction with these guys and it seems to be part of their training that they now highlight or circle how much you saved on your receipt and say thank you!  You save $110 today!   I'm like shhhhhhhhhh!  LOL

So total today was all from the OC or Lottery and included Cliff Bars, Horizon, Condoms, Water, TP, Dove, Oatmeal, Peanut Butter, Flour, Olive Oil, Zone Bars, Atkins Drinks, Sunscreen, Dish Detergent and so on and so on.......... total in one store was $110 Second store was $80 and third store was $58 in savings!  Total spent was just about $50 oh and did I mention the MILFS?  LOL

Only issue had was for the One a Day!  Not sure if anyone else is having an issue but this did not scan and thankfully my girl had already sweet talked the young man and he simply typed in MFG Coupon and $7.00.

All in all a good day!

ironically you turn your diaper pack into a trojan horse with the trojan coupon.  theres nothing wrong with fucking an ugly or fattie every once in a while.  everyone needs a fallback chick.  I could see you stalking the diaper aisle nonstop.

without testing the program these things come to mind.

No one doubts the validity of the OC collection, so why rock the boat.  Coupons on the phone is sketchy. from a retail point of view.
for the AC/HC I dont see anyone taking it from your phone, if they dont have anything to back.

I will download it but I almost would say snipsnap would forward the coupon to someone or something. an upload or something to account for the coupon otherwise you would just use the same coupon over and over.  Ill look into it but I dont see it being anything too good.  IMO it lowers authenticity of the coupon

Anyone have any changes in their WM's self checkouts in the past week or two?  2 of my areas 3 stores have changed to needing someone to manually enter any coupon $5 or more, and any coupon over 20 needs a manager approval...annoying as fuck!  They have to manually enter them in regular checkout for $5+ too I noticed this morning...it says something like "Is coupon amount of $5 off correct?  Manually enter coupon amount." for both their cash register screens and when they have to come help me at self checkout.  I only use self check-out when I only had a few things because it used to be speedy, not so much anymore though.

I never use that many coupons there since I'm usually swinging by on my way home and I prefer Target for bigger trips, so I gotta figure that they were getting raped by someone else w/these or similar coupons.  Curious if these changes are only happening here though.

I'm seeing the same thing here. Not that the cashiers and CSM's are any tougher, though. The human element is always the weakest link. :)

I'd already decided to shift to Target and try Publix and Whole Foods, Fresh Market, etc. Bummer though about losing the easy gc option. Oh well, now I'll only snag 9/10 WM gc's, instead of 10/10 and it may take 30-45 seconds longer.  ::) Ninety+ % of WM managers are still ignorant of their no-free-gc policy, anyway. There's a new WM cashier/sucker born every minute.

No they didn't pull it yet...the tooth has been cracked in 3 for months now and I knew it was in bad shape but not THAT bad,I do a 14 day course of antibiotics and then get the thing yanked.I actually have a full mouth of healthy teeth for the most part,The last dentist ruined me for life and so I didn't go to him for 2 years until my insurance changed and I picked someone else.

Actually, 420blindman, the toothbrush idea is a good one. I'll have to get on that, and the damn refills, those are expensive as hell! We can't make coupons for the dentist so we might as well do what we can while we can. I will tell you this much, I'm brushing, flossing, using the mouth wash from the coupon... all twice tonight. Fuck having a heart attack because I skipped flossing.

Lotus,

I was just thinking of the tooth brushes, and we need coupons.

But..
We should try to get coupons for expansive...... Electric Toothbrushes instead, like the Oral B company.

That way, everyone will be avoiding those dentists.

Just checking in again on more results.  Only did a tiny run today, but got another full page $50 Visa from Walgreens.  I was at a Target and had another one on me, so I thought I'd give it a whirl, knowing that they don't accept anything over $40.  They were all keen to go ahead and process it, except that they have target specific Visas, not the Vanilla ones.  So maybe that nothing over $40 isn't so strict.  Or maybe I just got an uninformed cashier.  Either way, I'm going to go try with some other $50 GC and see what happens.

Hope your tooth feels better Shrek!  I had a friend need 3 emergency root canals this week and might have to have one of the teeth pulled.  He's been all foggy from the pain pills but still in pain  :-\.  Hope your situation isn't as rough.  1 bad tooth has gotta be "better" than 3, right?

Great idea about the toothbrush, by the way!  I'd love to grab one of those.  Then I can start my mornings off Jettsons style!

I have a problem with the ac pack.  I dont know what to do with all these 100 dollar amex's I'm getting.  they won't let you take the cash out of an atm and I don't really trust selling them online because I dont know how long they will stay active.  I'm also a little hesitant paying my bills directly with them for obvious reasons.

this is a serious problem I demand satisfaction or a full refund plus compensation for lost time and suffering for all that time we spent today bsing cashiers talking their ears off about all the surveys we took to earn them.

I already suggested to the wife that escorts are starting to take credit cards but she didn't seem very impressed with the idea.  On another note I tried to buy a pretzel with a $50 one today and GOT TURNED DOWN. they said they only took visa and MasterCard.  I can't even buy a fucking dollar pretzel what good are these things might as well just throw them away.

Win7, TAILS.  There is no unzipping a file that isn't zipped.  Anyways, Wraith "captain save a pc illiterate hoe" got me some zip files.  Now TAILS is malfunctioning.  Man do I suck at computers.  I always tell people that I am a living testiment to how easy it is to use SR.  I'm even using PGP, now.  If anyone wants my key you can email me at legalcounsel@tormail.com

Had a fun shopping weekend. The OC went fine, except one Target the manager would not take most of the coupons. No big deal, went to a different one down the street. We got 3 Macy's cards, 1 shell gas card, 1 Gamestop $25 card from the AC collection. All at CVS's. Used the new $40.00 Turtle Beach coupon at target with no issue. Fun Times.

First few runs were awesome. All of them were at Walmart, only issue was when I had a coupon larger than the price, but the cashier would just put it in manually same as the price. Small loads, 2 coupons at a time, but tonight probably going to do a slightly larger run....maybe 5 coupons. Or, if I feel particularly dangerous....6 coupons!

Self check out works fine in my area still, can't wait to grab the AC at some point and try those gas cards. Those are the ones I am looking forward to the most, as I am perfectly capable of expending 70+ dollars of gas a week.

Damn, I don't check in for a few days and the most recent thread I see when I popped in last night was "Also....DO NOT fuck teenage pregnant chicks raw."  I NOPED out pretty quick fearing I'd accidentally clicked onto some hidden CP part of these forums, or that wraite and PL had found their way to Thailand.  Checking back now I'm glad to see things haven't devolved quite that far.

Anyway, just wanted to say I just got the lessons.  I was a little concerned that the instructions would be complicated, or that the process would be incredibly drawn out, especially after glancing at those instructions that coachella420 posted freely on a thread somewhere.  But that's not the case at all.  I could have done this shit in middle school.  PGL wrote out the guide to the point where I'm pretty certain I'm not going to have a single question.  I'll probably overlook something, but this seems pretty straight forward.  If you've got the mental capacity to set up a modem, I'm pretty certain you can follow his instructions. 

Thanks again Lotus!

I'm back.  I needed a break from captchas.  I couldn't communicate at all because of them during our technical difficulties, so I went on vacation.(i.e.-shopping)

I am pleased to announce I have some interesting news.  I noticed several people on here saying to use the Visa GC's right away or they get killed(the GC's not the people using them, lol).  I have had a free one killed within 48 hours(cause I wanted to see for myself, it was only a $25) that I got on a Saturday and was no longer working on Monday.  HOWEVER, I have had another $50 visa now for thirty one days and it hasn't been canceled. 

Why? 
(The following is my opinion)
I think because when you use a 20 off 25 or a 40 off 50 visa coup, they are unable to cancel them BECAUSE YOUR MONEY IS ON THEM!!!!(you put on 5 for a $25, 10 for a $50) 

***DISCLAIMER***  (I may be wrong,  I have been wrong before.)

If they are unable to cancel them because we put our own funds on, I'd personally rather pay so I can use it anytime and not worry about it getting canceled.(I'd also like a $90 off $100 coup  ;D ) I've done this with both the $25 and $50 and they're both at full available balances on the website.  Any questions, thoughts or suggestions are welcomed and appreciated. 

@GLPL but not on the DL- What ever happened to the HC?  Right after I got it a few expired, and I was gunning for food savers to pass out to family members.  Is it going to be resurrected/updated, or has the AC taken it's place and I'm sol?  :(

Post by: GoldenLotus on May 07, 2013, 12:11 am
Nope, you're fucked and I have decided just to sit back and collect money and stop caring exactly what it is I stand for and what I'm doing here...


HAHA j/k, that will never happen, but the HC has been set aside as I figure out a couple things. Honestly I have become procrastinate with it because of other projects, but I plan to have it fully up to date soon and at that moment I will relist it. I refuse to sell it as long as it needs work, so I'll complete that work first and then relist it. I'm not about to make some money until I do right by things. It is what it is, but it certainly is NOT retired and will make a strong return soon. I have no intent on having just an OC and an AC. There needs to be a resurrection of the HC and it is coming soon. It just has taken the back seat to a long ass list of priorities lately.

One thing is for sure, I will never sell out. The money keeps me going, but I'll never been in this for just the money. I would fail miserably if I was.

Hold up.  You just released the AC with 200+ new ones in it, run the coupon lottery, and work your @ss off keeping us little folk happy and you're calling yourself a procrastinator?  Nah.  If anything you're just clearing your head of stale ideas in favor of fresh ones.

I've never had a VISA go blank on me and I've used more than one a month+ after I got it.  I always get the free cards and always $50, too.  So I'm not so sure about your reasoning.  I think it might just be the luck of the draw.

Also, I just got a food saver last week.  There's a full page coupon in one of the packs that doesn't have an expiration date.  Not sure which one it's in though.  But if you have them all, dig through 'em and you'll find it.

Anyone have any experience with the amazon GCs? Still a little hesitant to use em under my name.. I figure spreading em over multiple accounts would be ideal. Also, when you guys make runs, is your preferred currency cash?

 Also, when you guys make runs, is your preferred currency cash?

this is why I said you needed to go back to kindergarten and work on the OC.

your seriously asking if you should be using cash? WTF have you been using? food stamps?  your other alternative is a debit/credit card that links to you which has been stated in this forum 100s of times as being stupid

for the record YES ONLY USE CASH

I prefer to do all my shopping in BTC if possible. Actually I should open up a shop on SilkRoad where I resell everything I make a coupon for. I could purchase everything from all of you at 50% of retail and then resell it on here for 75% of retail. Now we could do all of our shopping not only by mail but exclusively in BTC. There is one thing I won't do though... accept coupons!

wraithe might be a little rough around the edges at times, but he generally speaks the truth. He tends to talk down to people and think extremely highly of himself. This a product of people always telling him how awesome he is. We should possibly back off of the wraithe praise for awhile to allow his ego to deflate. I'm not the one to be talking about other people and their big egos, but wraithe is like a monster if you are willing to feed him. I find a nice blend of insults and praise goes a long way with him.

you didnt defraud amazon. so your giftcards in their eyes are legit.
you defrauded CVS(etc) so using a debitcard at cvs poses a risk, using one for amazon doesnt because cvs would have to bring in a loss prevention specialist and then he would have to make a claim to amazon that this card was fraudulently received and to release any info involving the use.  in the meanwhile you posted on craigslist buying gift cards so theres no proof you didnt buy from a dude and theres no way to prove u were aware it was fraud. not to mention cvs isnt gonna bring in Columbo for $100 in gift cards, their financial structure is set up in a way where they already factored the loss in and raised prices to accommodate.  If anyone worked retail and had to go over shrink/loss reports you would understand they have a certain percentage of theft that is allowed.  It went as far as if we knew we were gonna be under but not so under it would get us an award, we would allow employees to take soda and candy bars etc because we already paid into the system.

tl;dr
Amazon doesnt give 2 shits about you, they got their money
cvs is pissed u fucked them but aint gonna do shit as long as u dont make it easy for them

you defrauded CVS(etc) so using a debitcard at cvs poses a risk, using one for amazon doesnt because cvs would have to bring in a loss prevention specialist and then he would have to make a claim to amazon that this card was fraudulently received and to release any info involving the use.  in the meanwhile you posted on craigslist buying gift cards so theres no proof you didnt buy from a dude and theres no way to prove u were aware it was fraud. not to mention cvs isnt gonna bring in Columbo for $100 in gift cards, their financial structure is set up in a way where they already factored the loss in and raised prices to accommodate.  If anyone worked retail and had to go over shrink/loss reports you would understand they have a certain percentage of theft that is allowed.  It went as far as if we knew we were gonna be under but not so under it would get us an award, we would allow employees to take soda and candy bars etc because we already paid into the system.

tl;dr
Amazon doesnt give 2 shits about you, they got their money
cvs is pissed u fucked them but aint gonna do shit as long as u dont make it easy for them

+1 -1 for you Wraithe, you stand up jerk! ;)

its called tough love.  when backthatassup is backing that ass up for Bubba the 350lb cellmate of his he is gonna say damn I wish wraithe was more of a dick to me maybe then I would of listened and wouldnt be getting passed around like the trojan condoms from lotus' coupon pack

its similar to seeing a dude with a hot ass bitch when hes a virgin, then she ditches his loser ass and dude is all like wtf am i gonna do.  so he starts fucking fat chicks and everyone is like wtf dude had that smoking hot lil spinner and now hes dating a krispy kreme model.  dude could of kept and tapped that hottie had he got his feet wet properly with whores,escorts, and the occasional pity/shame/drug addicted fuck. but he didnt do that and now hes going in reverse.

u gotta crawl before u walk
u gotta grab the peanut butter condoms and cigarettes before u go for the sex swing and lifesize dirk diggler doll, ya feel me?

Wraithe those are terrible comparisons. It's like black and white (no pun intended). Yes you're right..DON'T USE ANYTHING THAT TIES TO YOU or OUR COMMUNITY for that matter. I hope those idiots who came thru my turf didn't screw it up for the ACs I'm about to go to pound town on.
Wraithe you admitted to needing xxsmall condoms...if you haven't found them yet, buy a box of small latex gloves and cut the pinky finger off. That should do it.

the analogy makes sense.  When you have something great but do not know how to use it, you end up ruining it.  you need to gain experience with lesser things to truly appreciate and utilize the greater ones.

makes perfect sense..now go fuck off, i dont use condoms anymore after I got snipped no reason to

On a serious note what you said: "When you have something great but do not know how to use it, you end up ruining it.  you need to gain experience with lesser things to truly appreciate and utilize the greater ones." This is gold. Exactly what I'm talking about.

Why'd you request for the xsmall condoms and plan b a week or so ago if you got snipped? Was this recent? Good thing we got that advil one now...

A few months ago in the old thread there were a few people saying they used credit cards with these coupons all the time. :)

I've only made the mistake 4 times (out of hundreds of transactions). I don't think it will ever come back to bite me, since it was just a few dollars worth. Class B misdemeanor if you just take the monetary value of it all, although I'm not sure if that's how the law really works in the case. Anyone know?

fade back to the past lets say somewhere around the 70s or 80s era big hair big bush.  Dude is at a bar and meets a chick, chick and guy hit it off go back to dudes place. chick says shes on the pill and he blows inside her JUST ONCE.  out of hundreds of loads in his life.  Turned out chick was never on birth control and lied to dude.

hey guys, I was just curious about these coupons in the original and advanced packages....when I open up the files the coupons are pretty big with only one on a page.  It looks like I can resize and/or photoshop more than one to a page, a lot of them look like I can fit 3 or 4 per page.  Would this be ok to do?  I just wanted to save paper.  My main concern was that the quality of the coupons would probably go down with the smaller size and also if the gift card coupons can/should be resized to fit more per page?  I want to maximize my success rates with these.

Hey guys, just coming on here to talk about my recent events with the AC.

So I have a Walmart and Walgreens that's about 15 minutes away from here, I show up at the Walmart with some 2 $25, one for Applees, one for Buffalo Wild Wings, and a $100 visa, the Applebees goes through, so does the Wild Wings then the store manager came over for the last one and wouldn't except it.

We went to Walgreens next and sadly the lady said she 'heard about these' and they're a scam.

We then made our way to Econto Foods, tried out the $50 gas card and they wouldn't except it.

A few days later we head back to the same Walmart, score 2 more of the Applebees and Buffalo's.

The next weekend (last weekend) I decide to go for a long hall, I marked a bunch of K-Marts, Walmarts, Walgreens in the area and headed out.
-My first stop was K-Mart where I tried to get through with a $100 American Express and $100 Mastercard, sadly the manager came over and they wouldn't take it.
-Then headed to Walgreens, the numbers didn't match on the American Express Cards so I used got a $50 Amazon and $50 Best Buy, they both worked fine.
-Stopped at another Walgreens and the lady said that she knew about these and they're a scam. Two more people came up and were like yeah we've been warned about these. (I'm guessing an e-mail went out to some Walgreens stores? I read about that earlier in the forum and found it out first hand.)
-After that I show up at another Walmart with one American Express $100 card. They wouldn't except it.

My GF got tired and we decided to go home, but what I learned so far is that the $25 Gift cards go through fine. I had success with a couple of the $50s but they're a bit more sketchy about them. I haven't had success with a $100 one yet but I'm hoping soon.

I think Walgreens had a e-mail or something go out so I'd be careful when you go there.

If anyone has any hints for me to get by with the $100 ones lemme know. Also haven't tried out any CVS yet.

Thanks GL, already up a good $250 on the AC pack.

Post by: jeromebaker on May 08, 2013, 09:56 pm
ok, so I had a decent first run today with the AC....I scored overall 6 different $50 amex cards!!! I spent a good 3 or 4 hours riding around town stopping at kmarts, walmarts, cvs, and office max.

I scored 2 amex from kmarts, 1 from walmarts, and 3 from office max.  I only tried to use one coupon at each store to not raise any suspicion and it worked with some perseverance.

There were definitely some places out there that spotted them right away and said "oh no we don't accept coupons for giftcards, etc".  I tried a couple of rite aids and they immediately said no, mumbling something about we got a warning about these....other people at the office max were like "wow this is a nice coupon!".  I think office max was my sweet spot today with 3 out of 4 stores accepting the card.

I ended up going and filling up my gas tank, got lunch at panera and also bought some fresh kicks!! all from the cards, thanks golden lotus!!!  I still have some leftover I will sit on until when I need them.  I might head back out either tonight or tomorrow morning to see what else I can try.  All in all it was about a 60% or more success rate at the different stores I stopped by.  Some just didnt have the correct serial numbers on them so I would move on.

I need to start trying some of the food coupons next and also check out some walgreens...I hadnt tried them yet.


EDIT:  I also wanted to mention that the office max made me pay the $4.95 activation fees at each store, which was fine with me...what was weird was that at one kmart they waived the activation fee but at the other place they made me pay it like at office max.  any ideas why?

So I just bought the OC and decided to try it out at a nearby CVS. I pulled out the Cottonelle coupon that indicated $8 off any 12+ pack of toilet paper. CVS was also having one of their sales, with the Cottonelle 18-pack marked down to $9. However, when I went to the self-checkout, the machine rejected the coupon multiple times. I'm not sure what's going on, as I thought the OC was supposed to be pretty safe and reliable.

I don't really know what to look for regarding the UPC codes either, so my apologies if that was the reason it didn't work.

Additionally, I've noticed that GL sometimes provides updates to the coupons (since most of them expire in July or thereabout). Do I just access the same link that I was provided and download whatever seems new on there? Does he notify us, or should I just check randomly?

GL is usually really good about notifying us about updates, and will let us know usually a couple days ahead of time to get us really excited.  ;D   I also had an issue with the cottonelle coupon before, and what I was told to do is scan the GS1 Databar instead of the UPC.(If I am wrong feel free to correct me, as this is what has worked for me in the past)(I just got TP a few days ago)  Hope this helps.  Good shopping to all!!!

*** If your looking through this forum trying to decide whether or not to buy, just follow your instincts.  They led you here, and you trusted them enough to believe that this is possible.  It is possible, and by ordering you too can share in the savings of not paying out the ass for everything anymore.  I personally can attest to over $2000+ in savings since I joined two months ago.  And that's just on groceries!!!!  This is the best decision I ever made! ***

Just got the AC collection and took 2 $25 gift card coupons to a local big chain grocery store(not walmart). Took the gift cards and coupons to the register and asked if I could use these here. The checkout person said hold on leme check. She went to the front and came back 2 mins later and said  sorry we cant take them, the manager is comming she can tell you why. about 30 seconds later the manager came up to me , gave me that look, and said "I dont know where your getting these from, but we cant take them. I can have loss prevention call you and tell you why. dont take these to any other (name of store)" and gave the coupons back to me. I saw she had a photo copy of the coupons too.I was like no thats ok they dont have to call me, acted confused, and walked out. I parked far enough towards the back of the lot so cameras cant get my plate. As i was pulling out I saw the manager  by the door trying to write down a plate/vehicle discription. Got a lil parinoid and went home incase she called the cops, didnt want to try any other places. I live in a large city, dont think i will have much luck with the AC collection. Dont wanna try these at walmart cuz my OC works there fine and i dont want to be on the look-out there too.

Anyone else have any bad experiences like this?

So is that why the HC got taken down and hasn't come back?

Not really certain what was in the HC, as I'm new here too, which is why I'm asking.

ahhhh shit. You gotta try your best and not let them take the coupons anywhere. Tell them "it's not a problem..I'll contact the manufacture, company,etc." ANYTHING to keep them from taking that coup out of your site! How many of them did he photocopy and how do you know they did this?

nothing i could do without seeming suspicios. the casheir wasnt sure and just went 30ft away  to get approval she wasnt sure. The manager was holding the photocopy when he came up to me. thankk god LP wasnt in the building i suppose. i dont wanna say what coupons.....less details less chance it can be traced back to me (considering just ANYONE can read the forums) but  they were the ones ive seen pass at other stores according to the forums.

when they(cashier) do ask at walmart (i always do under $50 to avoid csm) i just say I do a shit load of surveys, aquireing credits and buy the coupons with the credits.

I had my first problem @ wallyworld this last week. Was just using the OC. I'm in a major city, downtown. Went to the burbs, kinda ghetto area. Had about 6 items, 5 were coupon and was denied by the checker for each. She stated the coups were fakes and that she wouldn't accept them. Pulled out a binder at first with similar looking coups but from what I could see for the 15 secs she had it open it was pages of photo copied coups and a page of a long list probably from the watchdog website. I did not see my coups in the photocopy and I did not see mine on her list. However she didn't have it open long enough for me to really see which tells me it wasn't open long enough for her to see. Probably just being a bitch. She was young too. She also tried to keep them stating I didn't need them back because they were fake. I denied this, said the survey thing and insisted she was just pulling this crap to steal from me and use them herself! She handed them back real quick after that! I went the next day to my local target and all was well. Passed off about a dozen coups.

+1 limitless, pretty much covers it. only thing is, I'm not sure cvs machines can read GS1, correct me if I'm wrong :)

@skrillyskrill Since that chain is "burnt" you might as well share the name so we can avoid it ;0 and do you remember which coupon they had a copy of?

+1 to you and to visahate because he is who he is lol

Sadly, I have no CVS in my area, lest I would have already raped and pillaged their village.  I'm not sure if their machines read the GS1 or not.

***Would anyone care to expand on this topic?  Or does anyone know for sure which stores are able to scan data bars instead of having a csr manually punch them in? I know wal-marts in the midwest scan GS1 databars from personal experience.***

Good for you. I've only had to get belligerent once out of dozens of transactions. All it takes is a little social engineering and some swagger. Remember that you are the customer and you are always right!

Lotus, gimme a push-up bra coupon and you've got some receipt "porn" headed your way.

This is totally true Water. I don't dress nice when I go, I rock my tan in a mini dress or like you said the push up bra - with some tight jeans, and hit the male clerks every time. If I can't find a dumb guy, its younger girls who don't give a shit. Apparently this one did. oh well.

Haha +1 LunaLove. I hit up women everytime (below 40 and especially late 30s-they are pissed they are turning 40 soon) but below that I get dressed up clean and fresh. No hat, usually manscape, put on my nice necklace and a baller watch. It's the cologne that really makes them hot. LOL. Wear a nice perfume...guys like that and avoid the cocky lookin tools.

That's awesome you though about a coupon for paintballs as I was thinking the same thing! I can get the upcs to PL for Marbalizers, Valken Grafitti, and some other stuff that dicks sells, like RPS Advantage. The good shit. Go Pro cam is also a great idear. Maybe like ninety nine off?

@skrillyskrill- wasn't trying to give you any crap man...just wanted to make the community aware. I understand now and I wasn't asking which ones (I'm not new to this game) I said "how many" bc it would suck if there were a good amount. Comprende? Good call Wraithe on sending him pl's way.

HAHA I love this post so fucking much! He said "Joey... glitch and justbob" I miss the fuck out of Glitch and Justbob too. I do stay in contact with Joey and consider him a top adviser to the coupon movement. He just hasn't been active on our forum, but he very much is still involved and still a contributing factor in our cause. I'll try to see if I can get him to make an appearance soon. Bob and Glitch though... I miss those dudes. They came out of nowhere and made a profound impact on all of us at the time. I hope they are both doing great!

And fucking shrek... I love this dude too. He spends a few nights in the hospital and suddenly we are all willing to do whatever it takes to make him feel better. Then what happens next time we hear from him? He is having another medical issue? I would be sick too if I was shrek. Everytime I have an issue, my people look out for me. I would from that point on be constantly sick and in need of help. HAHA JK I'm extremely happy for the ones we do have left in the absence of others. Without guys like JustBob and Glitch, we still have some of the greats of all time. Like PurpleLotus, shrek, 420blindman, wraithe, and many more of us. And then there is me... GoldenLotus. Know this... I'm not sitting here idle and enjoying this wonderful thing. I'm grinding as hard as anyone in multiple areas. Some of the things I have in the works are going to change the way we do business here on SR. I'm always pushing and always moving on to the next chapter... sometimes to a fault, because I'm willing to risk it all just to be sure no one else has to risk anything.

I haven't let anyone down yet, after more than a year I still produce great content and I still am spending much of my time in new areas that we have yet to explore. Right now I have my hands deep in a new area and while everything I do proves to be a risk, I'm getting better and better at making sure we all reap the rewards. Everything I do is with the intent of making this entire operation better. One of these days, I'm going to take a risk and have a very large payout to us all. Until then, I'll keep taking risks for as long as they let me.

ok so im sitting here with every single coupon u have made.. they work fine..

but the gift card ones.. .. why the hell is it that u have made ALMOST EVERY SINGLE COUPON FREE!!!
AS IN FREE GIFT CARD!!! WHY?

I HAVE SEARCHED SOOOO MANY COMPANY'S COUPON POLICIES AND THEY ALL SAY THE SAME THING.. THEY TAKE MANUFACTURERS AS LONG AS THEY ARE NOT FOR A FREE ITEM.. AS IN YOU PAY 5 DOLLARS FOR SOMETHING WORTH 50.. OR 5 DOLLARS FOR A 25 DOLLAR GIFT CARD..

so all the coupons i bought are from the start void.. if they were to look in there hand books they would see they are not allowed to take those gift card coupons.. .


so why did i write this? cuz i would like u to make a new set that is nothing but 5 dollars off or 10 dollars off or whatever...

i know u have made them before i have some but i mean damn u should really think about that.. EVERY COMPANY I LOOKED FOR HAD THAT IN THERE POLICY.. SO.. HAVE FUN GUYS.. I SITLL LOVE THESE BUT IT WOULD MAKE SENCE TO MAKE THEM LIKE 5 DOLLARS OFF AND SHIT..

You knew what you were buying... since it's clearly printed in the listing, so my question is... why the fuck you buy it if you felt this way? I appreciate your concern, and your input, but what you should know is that we got this shit over here. We got this shit. The day someone buys one of my listings and doesn't make their money back ten fold, well then let those be the people who come on my thread talking in caps and shit. We are listening, and working hard, but don't come at me like that when you knew exactly what you were buying, and you got every fucking cent you paid for it. I don't plan to start letting you down in the future either.

Thanks! I'm having a ton of fun, and always prefer FREE anything over paying for it. Use the fucking brain in your head, and come up with a story line that will have the cashier on your side, and feel like they want to give to card to you. I say shit like I received the coupon as a birthday gift, and if it doesn't scan, which is hardly never, I get really dejected and act like I can't believe that my Grandma would give me a fake coupon. Mothers Day is a great excuse. Just say you're out running errands for your pregnant wife, and she asked you to use the GC coupons that she received from all the Mothers Day cards her friends and family gave her. Say some shit like how you use to get lottery tickets as gifts, but kept losing, so your friends thought that giving you some coupons would be a better.

Or just keep whining, and maybe you can get someone to wipe your ass as well.

p.s. And now that you've read everyone's policies, it shouldn't be hard figuring out what to use where. Trust me, by just glancing at the stores policy, you probably know more about it then the cashiers.

I gotta say, the only company in my area that actually sticks to their no free gift card policy all the time is Wallgreens.  I've been turned down individually at all of the others but not consistently.  I rarely do the $100 anymore and stick mainly with the $50s & $25s.  I'm actually at the point where I get almost 100% acceptance because I'm not pushing high dollar cards.  You just have to find what denominations and purchasing style work for you.  On the occasion I go after the $100s, I slap on a hologram and make up a story about I do web advertising for the site and they gave me the option of $50 cash or $100 card.  I know enough about the subject I can answer any question they throw at me.

For purchasing style, I go in after work in business casual, looking like an upstanding citizen, sometimes chat with the cashier but always looking & acting happy.   For giftcard transactions I always buy one or two things in the same transaction w/out a coupon.  I spread out who I hit & don't hit the same place more than once per month.

The whole point is experiment with how you buy & find what works for you.

On a side note, anybody else notice self-checkouts at Target?  I found a couple in my area with them.  They still needed a cashier override for the gift card but she didn't even pay attention to why she was overriding.

Dude/ette, something you need to also keep in mind is that 95% of employees have never read there companies policy.  I was at three places yesterday and one even had a sign(wal-greens), and they still ran it anyway.  It's all about how you handle people.  Get a cashier on your side, and they'll even fight the manager for you!

idk why the fuck ur cussing at me lotus wtf is wrong with u?

im simply stating a fact.. thats A FACT.. thats in there policies.. say what u want but its true..
all of them being 100% free is just simply another reason for a manger to say we dont take those..

thats really all i was trying to say.. of course i didnt know that when i bought the coupons.. but even soo i wouldve still bought them..
i like ur coupons.. no need to get hard on the darkweb..

ur coupons are tight.. i HAVE BOUGHT ALL OF THEM.. wtf u talking crazy to me for? i paid u money for ur product and was just really.. saying something to help everyone.. so all u guys get mad if u want idc.. i like lotus and his products and i was only trying to help maybe the way i wrote it came off dfferent but whatever... cocaine is a hell of a drug...


b e z dude  ill delete that last post but still i think it would be cool to have some more that cost money just to see if it works better..

Yeah I suggested that a while back (paying $5-10 for a $50 or something) hoping the idea gets traction. thelorax just has a special way of communicating, I watched the movie, I still don't get it :)

Anyway, while this will easily fool the machines, I now think it will be harder to pass the scrutinizing cashier since in most back stories you're more likely to have gotten a free one than a "subsidized one".

I donated like 50 cans of food to the local women's clinic. Do as you please with these but if you're getting even 1...you should be thankful. More than that...give back to others that don't have an opportunity we do.

That's what I'm talking about! not sure what the clinic would do with canned food but giving is as good as getting!
I hit up a soup kitchen last weekend with extras I've been saving for a month.

Well at the time they were actually doing a "canned food drive" for the women's shelter which comprises of a lot of poor single mothers who have been abused by their partners or have had drug issues, etc. I brought a bunch of those little baby food cans...and I also picked up a few things of folic acid bottles for the pregnant women (they need their folic acid!) Other than that various cans for the poverty stricken groups. +1 Karma to you too handsoap and yes, I believe real karma is indeed amongst us IRL.

lol @ thelorax: I was simply responding to you the same way you were talking to me. I had no hard feelings over it. I wasn't even mad and knew you were trying to help, but I decided to respond in the same way to you. You were yelling and cursing, so that's why I did. it's no big deal, we all get drunk and post shit... I'm a shining example of that and also had a few drinks last night. It's no problem. As far as your idea is concerned, we very much are listening and I'd expect you will see it more and more from now on. the problem is as soon as I make that shift, I get people complaining and whining that there are no more FREE coupons... it's a lose/lose for me, but no matter what I'll be putting out what I feel is the best bet for us all.

lol @ shrek, no worries, all is well. We have actually been planning to do exactly what Lorax is asking for, it's the way he asked that I objected to, but none the less we are now working on addressing this immediately since we already had it planned and already knew what people wanted.

I finally found a way to never have to print out coupons again.
A way to use these coupons with no evidence and no paper trail.
A way that requires almost no interaction from cashiers. No more profiling.

Go to the self checkout lane and after you scan your coupon.................DON'T put it in! Just keep it! I have done this dozens of times now.

If you want to be really hardcore import the entire coupon collection to your phone (preferably a 2nd phone with no service) and just use it to scan.

I have now reformatted the coupons so that its just the barcode with a picture of the product above it. Perfect size for an ipod/phone/tablet/whatever....

P.S. YMMV. Different scanners have different strengths. Different devices have varying screen intensities. Not all scanners will scan from a phone screen. Worst case scenario you have to use a paper coupon......but you KEEP it. lol.

i rather put the coupon in and keep print it at home with free paper and ink, you don't know if someone watching self checkout lane from distance or upstair.

I've had no problem with getting ten to twenty gcs (the best ones-use your imagination, I dont get into detail here) and this has been a god send from lotus. thank you so much man...I've been able to help struggling family members, friends, even homeless people with these and/or what I purchase. I donated like 50 cans of food to the local women's clinic. Do as you please with these but if you're getting even 1...you should be thankful. More than that...give back to others that don't have an opportunity we do.
Preach! lol

-Bio

Agreed.

Anyone on Torchat right now? I'm bored as fuck right now, but I never spend any time making coupons once I start drinking. Msg me.

I never get a reply from you, GL!  I eventually stopped saying hi lol

Just to double check...are you guys still able to download the .rar files?  I stopped being able to download coupons when the old zip file format ceased being used.

Also, the stores in my area have completely stopped taking free gift card coupons.  Will this last?  I'm not sure.  Perhaps when new employees turn over, that policy won't be enforced.  In the mean time, has anyone else experienced this?
