Well, the Home Depot coupons that I bought on eBay last week just arrived a few days back. As it turns out, I’m a dolt…
I didn’t read the listing as carefully as I should have, and the coupons turned out to be good for 10% off your total purchase when you use your Home Depot credit card. Doh! I don’t have a Home Depot credit card.
The other thing that I noticed as soon as I opened the envelope was that the coupons were fake… They had obviously produced by a color printer or copier. So now I at least have an out — I’ve contacted the seller and he agreed to refund my money as soon as I send the coupons back. To be honest, I halfway expected this, but I only risked about eight bucks, and now my curiosity has been satisfied.
There’s still one thing that I don’t get though… If you were going to forge Home Depot coupons, why would you choose to copy a crappy coupon that’s only good for purchases with the store credit card when you could’ve made copies of the far more useful 10% coupons that don’t restrict the mode of payment?
