    WHAT I can't understand is having no shame to take the whole thing, I mean it's hard enough to rip off 5 coupons from a tare pad without looking like your wrestling the darn thing. I hope that maybe it's more than 1 person unless I see it with my own eyes but ya never know now a days what extremes people will do the earn some cash....Tare pads in my neck of the woods are hard to come by.

    I just don't UNDERSTAND how someone can tear a whole tear pad off! Ok...the ones that you just slide and rip off...I get it. But then there are the ones hanging from this stupid white plastic thingy (like the coupon zone ones) and I have to wrestle with it to get even ONE coupon off. I would be there ALL DAY huffing and puffing (as well as attracting attention to myself ) trying to get the entire tearpad off.

    Pliers??? WTF....how do that do that? Snap the plastic thing off? And isn't that vandalism or something. Good grief!

    Yes, I have seen the plastic hook type things broken or bent up because someone has tried to take too many at once.

    I agree with everyone else, I have a hard enough time trying to take 5 at once. Couldn't imagine the effort needed to take the whole darn pad!

    BUT someone did steal them all...and making us do trades to get them... ...I never find the coupons at the stores ...so must be people out there with the insight and knowing when the coupons come out....
    Hope you have much success in your couponing.. Have a great year...

    this is sorta why i am hesitant to teach anyone to coupon.. because it puts another couponer out there,and not all new couponers are good couponers.. i've taught some and i hear later that they take entire pads that they argue with cashiers, and i'll admit.. it does add competition to get the coupons with only 5 stores that put up smart source tear pads (food wise..) the pads are going in rapid speed (under 12hrs) already

    Last year, I probably got over 50+ or more oasis coupons from buying apple juice and from trains.

    A few times I acquired like 100+++ Campbells back when you could use the $1 WUB2 on any soup from tearpads, and close to that when they were in the inserts. I just did lots of trades because it's something myself and a lot of people in my family used so I traded like crazy.

    But.. Some could take a whole tear pad, others could have traded. But if I traded for 100 I would not be offing 100 because whenever theres a high valued tearpad or insert it usually comes with a highly inflated price tag to trade, so coupon inflation has lead me to fend for myself and using my gift cards to put towards groceries lol

    I think the frustration here is against people who DO take the whole tear pad, not against people who happen to have many of the same coupon.

    LOL! That brings me back to the campbells soup coupon... Thru local trading groups (place I used to live), all the stores having multiple containers holding them etc; and friends stopping by to give me a coupon they thought I would like...
    I had 50 coupons in the end. I used them all. I was expecting them to last for years.. But we gave a bunch to a friend who had lost their job and couldn't afford to buy food for a while - (about 50 cans), and we also kept about 50 because we found recipe after recipe that you could use a can of tomato soup or mushroom soup in it.. We used them all up in about 1 year!
    I never expected it to happen but it did!
    I've set up 3 trains.Still loading. If you are interested,links are on my userpage.
    No, this isn't your coffee, I had a two for one coupon!

    Does someone taking whole tear pads want to trade with me? I have a trade rating of 2 & no coupons to trade beside P&G, Smart Source & Red Plum inserts.
    Yeah I didn't think so

    Exactly!! No one is beefing about someone taking coupons here and there from various stores and at different times. If I took whole tear pads, I would consider that stealing and wouldn't be able to sleep at night!!! Wherever we go, we run into individualism - every man for himself - and it's sad that this has spilled over into the couponing world as well.

    today I went to SDM to get the free hair dye and low & behold a whole coupon pad of the $3.00 Zantac. One side was completely gone and it was just put out today. I took 8 in total cause I use them but not for the overage ones for the big packages cause of ulcers. I would feel bad for taking more than that but it was so tempting,

    I am actually finding the opposite. I have $2 Old Dutch coupons and they are very high value. They become FPC when on sale. I have been trading dollar for dollar, quite a few times even more generously. Some people are not even giving thank yous. A few people have come to expect generosity, it seems
