We have a regional chain of grocery stores here that won't accept coupons printed from the Internet.

Anyone else had this problem and what did you do about it?

I just heard about Cellfire http://www.cellfire.com which is supposed to store coupons on your grocery savings card or on your cellphone. They do offer a savings card, so I'll see what the possibilities  might be there.

If it was the cashier who told you that...talk to a manager.  That happend to me at the local Shop-Rite. After using the coupons several times without issue, this cashier told me I could not.  Oh manager...  5 minutes later they told my coupons and I havent' had a problem since.

There are some stores that flat out don't accept coupons printed from the internet, ask the manager or not.

Still, it's not a bad idea to check with the manager the first time you get your coupon turned down.
