Counterfeit/Fraudulent Coupon Resources

NGA has recently had a number of retailers and wholesalers contact the organization regarding an increase in counterfeit coupons and has developed a number of contacts and resources to assist your store personnel in recognizing counterfeit internet coupons, including making available a poster created by the Association of Coupon Professionals. 
 
This poster provides tips for cashiers to look for certain elements within the coupons such as no free/high-value offers, obvious alternations, unusually long expiration periods, and other features and design elements. Click here or go to www.nationalgrocers.org to download the poster.
 
Need Help/Questions: Please contact communications@nationalgrocers.org or call 703-516-0700.

 

The National Grocers Association (NGA) is the national trade association representing the retail and wholesale grocers that comprise the independent sector of the food distribution industry. An independent retailer is a privately owned or controlled food retail company operating a variety of formats. The independent grocery sector is accountable for close to 1% of the nation's overall economy and is responsible for generating $131 billion in sales, 944,000 jobs, $30 billion in wages, and $27 billion in taxes. NGA members include retail and wholesale grocers, state grocers associations, as well as manufacturers and service suppliers. For more information about NGA and the independent sector of the industry, see the NGA website: www.nationalgrocers.org.
