You print out your coupons and take them into Wal-mart, Target or your grocery store, where you do your shopping. The next thing you know, a cashier is telling you that your coupons can’t be used. What do you do?

Most stores today have policies saying that they will accept coupons printed on a home computer. Still, many shoppers run into problems trying to redeem their printable coupons at some stores. Here is some advice about what you can do if your store won’t accept printable coupons.

When shopping at a new location, it is helpful to first find out what the official policy of the store is, regarding printable coupons. You can usually find this information on the store’s website. Print out a copy of the policy and take it with you. This way, if your coupons are challenged, you can whip out the policy and show it to the cashier.

You can also go over to the customer service desk in the store and ask to see the company policy regarding printable coupons.

If you still can’t get a hold of the coupon policy, e-mail the customer service contact for the store and ask for a written statement of the store policy regarding printable coupons.

Using legitimate coupons from trusted sources, such as FreeCoupons.com will make it less likely that your coupons will be rejected. Legitimate coupons usually have a scan-able bar code and information on how the store can remit the coupon.

Good Tip: Saving money is important – especially if you have a lot of expenses like bills to pay, loans to pay off, and all the other things that drain your bank account. Figuring out a way to save money can feel tedious to some, and like a punishment to others. U.S. News suggests that you try one of these money saving challenges. The “No Eating Out for a Month” Challenge This one is self-explanatory. The goal is to avoid eating out for an entire month. This might be super easy for people who enjoy making meals at home. People who really enjoy dining out, or ordering food to be sent to their home, may struggle with this one. It’s worth a try because spending money on take-out is more expensive than buying groceries. The Pantry Challenge This one is a variation of the “No Eating Out for a Month” challenge. The goal is to use up all of your groceries before you buy more. It forces you to try and remember why you bought a food or beverage that you don’t know what to do with, and gives you the opportunity to find a way to use it. The one exemption to this challenge is the foods that have expired. Don’t eat them! Throw them in the trash. The “No Spend” Challenge Make a goal to avoid spending money during an entire weekend. The only exemption in this challenge is that you are allowed to pay bills. This challenge is interesting because it requires creativity. You must be creative and find workarounds for problems that you would typically solve by spending money. You may have a different outlook on spending after finishing this challenge.
