I haven't read previous posts so don't know if this has been addressed.

How in the world does somebody get over 400 coupons for one item? Buy that many newspapers? Print them out on the computer? Photocopy one?

I buy many, many coupons from coupon clipping services. My kids go through a ton of dairy-free yogurt, so I'll pay the service to clip 100-150 coupons, wait until it goes on sale, and buy multiple cases.

Technically you can't buy or sell coupons, so you're paying the service to clip them for you, not for the coupon itself.

Many of the coupons featured on TLC's show were actually counterfeit.

There's a blogger local to me that has been following the saga of fake coupons, and illustrates why it is hardly ever a good idea to purchase coupons off the internet, especially not "free" or "BOGO" coupons:

and here's a coupon selling site that got involved, by accident:

However, there have been some instances when I have purchased high dollar coupons on ebay. When I do it, I am able to compare the purchased coupons to coupons I have already clipped from the weekly inserts, so that I know that they are not counterfeit.
