Q: Are all Internet coupons safe?

A: Most Internet coupons are issued by the manufacturer and are perfectly safe. There are strategic identifying elements on Internet coupons to track them and prevent fraud. With that said, there are fraudulent coupons out there that shoppers should stay away from. These are mainly found and distributed through e-mail or unusual websites. Also, most of these coupons read that an item is absolutely free. In thinking that through, manufacturers want to sell their products, not give them away. Stick to printing from reputable sites and manufacturer sites, and you’ll be fine.
