Have you noticed that the UPC code that you’re used to seeing on Manufacturers Coupons is not always printing with Coupons.com? I’ve gotten several questions recently about this because people are worried that their coupons aren’t printing correctly. These coupons are fine. This is actually a change coming to coupons to make them scan more accurately it also gives companies the ability to code a coupon with more accuracy to help avoid coupons being used on incorrect products.
The standard 12 bar UPC bar code on the backs of coupons has been replaced by the more advanced barcode system called then DataBar. The DataBar is longer than the UPC and contains expiration dates within the code which will make checkout a breeze!
DataBar is more cashier friendly; it has a better scan rate and also eliminates manual expiration date-checking. Have no fear! Cash registers at major retailers are prepared for the DataBar and smaller locations will be ready soon!
Thanks, Frugal Finders!
