Learn how to avoid falling for very convincing retailer coupon scams spreading throughout social media. Watch this NBC Nightly News segment to learn more.
Key points to avoid falling for a coupon scam from Stephanie Nelson, CouponMom.com:
–if a coupon offer looks too good to be true (like $75 off a $80 order at a national retailer), stop and question the offer
–if you click through and a survey is required in order to get the coupon, look at the website address. If it doesn’t match the retailer’s name exactly, close the window.
–if the survey asks for any personal information like credit card, bank account details or even phone number, close the window. Legitimate retailers would not require that to give you a real coupon.
–still confused? Go to Google and enter the retailer name followed by “coupon scam” and you’ll probably find details.
–you can always call the retailer’s 800 number to verify if the coupon is authentic.
–FINALLY, there are many great legitimate coupons that can save you hundreds or thousands of dollars a year. Take advantage of those!
