Couponing Ethics in Action!

Thank you for sharing!

This coupon, $5/2 Clairol Product, exp. 7/31/13 (P&G 07/07/13), is creating some controversy and I would like to express Pixie Dust Saving’s attitude regarding this coupon.

clairol hair color coupon

When I first started this website I wrote a post on Couponing Ethics. My number one rule was do not misuse a coupon. Eventually companies will figure this out and withdrawal their coupons for that item. A lot of people are reporting using this coupon and getting free Herbal Essences Shampoo and Conditioner. Yes, Clairol and Herbal Essences are the same company. Yes, the Clairol Facebook page said they are repaying retailers that are accepting those coupons for Herbal Essences. Here is Clairol’s response: This coupon is good on only Clairol hair color. [We] totally understand the question, as Herbal Essences is Clairol, however Herbal Essences hair care products run their own coupons. With that said, it is ultimately up to the retailer if they will honor it the way you’d like to use it. My best advice is to give it a try. Hope that helps! Happy Weekend! Pixie Dust Savings suggests using it for its’ original intention or they will lower the coupon value in the future. People are shelf clearing and everything else with these coupons. PLEASE DON’T DO THAT! 

So many coupons have been lowered in value or are completely gone because of greedy couponers. Please help the couponing community and use the coupon only for its’ intended purpose.
