Counterfeit Coupon Alert – Johnson & Johnson Products
Update: Tammy asked a very good question and you can read the info in the comments below but I wanted to clarify. You can always type in the coupon veri-fi code here to verify the validity of a printable coupon. I just entered the numbers on my Johnson & Johnson coupons and they are valid, however since the CIC has deemed them counterfeit because of excessive copying and redeeming by and individual or group, they should no longer be used. Hope that helps to clarify.
The Coupon Information Corporation (CIC) just listed a new counterfeit coupon that is circulating. It is for $2/2 Johnson & Johnson products. Now I actually printed this coupon and just pulled it out of my binder. The one printed from coupons.com or the bricks coupon is not counterfeit, BUT it appears someone had turned it into a PDF. If you see the PDF circulating, DO NOT print and make sure you pass along the information. The bad news is that if you have a legitimate coupon in your organizer, you will need to go ahead and destroy it. There is no need to risk $2 on trying to prove YOURS is not the counterfeit version. Just shred them and forget it.
If you have already used the coupon, there is nothing you can do. Chances are it was the legitimate one from the bricks software anyway. It’s very sad that there are people out there ruining a perfectly good coupon for the rest of us.
