This time of year we start to see coupons that are NOT produced by us and therefore are not honored. You’ll find real Bronco’s Coupons in our monthly newsletters, on “OUR” social media pages or in a local fundraiser coupon book. We NEVER place a paper coupon in any of the free newspapers. If you find a coupon your questions, send us a photo and we’ll be happy to verify it for you asap.
Fake coupons can be a serious problem, as they can lead to financial losses for both businesses and consumers. Here are a few tips for protecting yourself against fake coupons:
Only use coupons from trusted sources: Be wary of coupons that come from unfamiliar websites or that are shared on social media. Instead, stick to coupons that are directly from the manufacturer or retailer, or that are distributed through reputable coupon websites.
Look for security features: Many legitimate coupons will have security features like holograms, watermarks, and special printing techniques to prevent counterfeiting.
Check the expiration date: Fake coupons will often have unrealistic expiration dates or no expiration date at all. Make sure to check the expiration date on any coupon you plan to use to ensure it is still valid.
Pay attention to the fine print: Legitimate coupons will often have specific terms and conditions that must be met in order to redeem them. Be sure to read the fine print to ensure you are eligible to use the coupon.
Be cautious of too-good-to-be-true deals: If a coupon seems too good to be true, it probably is. Be wary of coupons that offer discounts that are much higher than what you would normally expect.
Use caution when entering personal information: Some fake coupons will ask for personal information in order to redeem them. Be cautious about sharing your personal information, as this can potentially lead to identity theft.
By following these tips, you can help protect yourself against fake coupons and avoid falling victim to scams. Remember to always use caution when using coupons and only use them from trusted sources.
