    That is one fantastic coupon. It's really like carrying $5 cash when you pick up animated toys, I'm just astounded it works so well.

    Have a couple left. But I can tell you It was a lot of work to even get the correct bags half the time instead of the generic bags (for me at least) rarrrgh.

    Not going to condone these internet copies though. That's how we lost our "$5 off all toys" target coupons last month, some people printed a bunch, and then they could no longer accept them.

    Note also that these coupons go into a bag to be checked later by the store claims department. Once they find a duplicate fake they can report it and you'll have messed up those with legitimate coupons. :(

    They're great to have, but I'm for the "Don't spoil it for everyone else" side of things. It's kinda your own fault you lost the coupons.

    I thought that coupon was expired already?


    In any case, yeah, I'd say just don't do it. I've worked at retail for five years or so, and I've seen a lot of good deals get nixed because of customers "abusing" discount privelages.

    You're right though, they probably won't care, mostly because they don't want to start something. Chances are if they've seen one or more of the coupons though it'll be pretty obvious that it's a scanned print=off.

    guys, i'm not gonna go and print 100 of these or anything...it'd just be nice to use on on powerglide like i did on onslaught...maybe one for animated megatron, and another voyager, but nothing completely ridiculous

    however, i do see where you are coming from...

    and that link doesnt seem to work either...

    I think it would probably work, but printer paper and the paper used for the Happy Meal bags are completely different. I think the claims department going through them like Grimwing said would spot it, and it would ruin it for everyone. I'd say don't do it, dude.

    The Target coupons were nixxed not because of wide usage, but because of digital alternations that some people made to be $5 off anything, not just toys. Rather then watchdog for the altered coupon, they ceased the entire offer.

    As to the other issue, that is a concern, though it's ultimately up to Hasbro, not the retailer on whether or not to accept them. If Hasbro is fine with it, then there wouldn't be a problem, it's just that if the retailer accepts the coupon, and Hasbro doesn't, does it constitute a problem.

    Self-checkout, no need to bother with employees at all, no worrying about the claims department going through them and finding a printed coupon, etc.
