    I print smartsources coupons I think I will use,or coupons that can become inavailaible because of the rules fast persons catch them and seems in limited number(still bitting my fingers for cereals coupons when they are great like BOGO) But If I will use them I make sure to verify the date before.Glad you are contacting Clear weird how the date on the coupon is made..must be a design error.

    UPDATE 3:

    Woohooo received a great response from the Clear team. Not only are they going to examine the coupon and do something about it for the rest of the couponing community, they will send me a coupon too!

    Below is their email to me

    Great response from Clear.

    I've seen this happen a few times.. Smartsource and a couple times with websaver.... I've noticed when the company puts the expiry in the 'fine print' and then contract a company to distribute coupons, they clearly didn't read (or catch) the expiry in the wording.

    Terrible response from Smartsource though!! I agree that I hate when companies just give you a generic response like that. It's almost like saying "Thanks for contacting us, but we didn't bother to read your email, nor do we care about what you think"

    awesome that you got a response about it!
    I have had this kind of thing happen before. I've had manufactures coupons sent out direct from the company with two different dates before! I was able to use them though, as neither date was expired.

    I wouldn't feel bad about this. The company made an error and you didn't do it on purpose. I would've made the same mistake. That big bold expiry date bar is what would catch my eye
