Manufacturers coupons will be banned effective 5/1!!!!



I just woke up with an email from the FTC saying manufacturer coupons will be phased out and banned effective May 1, 2011 due to fraudulent missuse. 

Here's an excerpt taken from their website:
Due to fraudulent misuse of manufacturer coupons the use of said item will be phased out and effective May 1st, 2011 manufacturer coupons will no longer be available to the public or redeemed.

I guess people are making copies and the stores do not have the manpower to police such efforts.  Wow there goes our way of saving!  Everyone needs to write to them and complain...... 

Or we can laugh because...
