    where did you purchase your free items?? I tried to use the coupons for the juicy jumbos, bread, maple leaf, and pasta but was denied the coupons, because the grocer thought they were a scam.

  2. I bought most of them from Loblaws, SuperStore and Walmart. At that time, I didn't have any trouble using my coupons.

    But I've heard that as of yesterday, most stores are no longer accepting computer printed coupons.
