I was given the boot!

unceremoniously and without notice booted from a Facebook couponing group! Yup, they did not approve my one and only post. I blatantly, without pulling punches told them the a practice they promoted was theft. They promoted using multiple email accounts to get multiple Kroger accounts as much as or more than 20! to receive multiple free items every Friday. Made me feel dirty every time I scrolled through the group's postings. Finally said so and why I felt it was wrong. Took less than 5 minutes for my post to disappear from the scroll and the group to disappear from my feed and my Facebook groups list.

Re: I was given the boot!

They gave me a strong distaste for couponing even though I know not all couponers behave in such a fashion.

Good for you for standing up and having morals! It seems like so many people don't these days.

Why is this in craft show & tell?

Ugg it's stuff like this that really iritates me with couponing. I don't coupon much anymore because it doesn't seem worth my time. But any type of fraud hurts those who follow the system. It's no wonder that coupons have been horrible since TLC came out with their extreme couponing

Re: I was given the boot!

I keep trying and thought I could get some useful tips. Only I kept running across practices I thought shady and others, like the above mentioned one, that are truly fraudulent. Makes me feel dirty.

That's one reason why I stopped couponing. The people can do very shady stuff that's just not right.

Re: I was given the boot!

I can never remember my password to log on my Kroger app when I'm at the store. I hate their digital coupon savings. I wish they'd just reduce the price of the item without making me jump through stupid hoops. And never succeeded in getting anything free from Kroger.
