We have a new Elmer’s Coupon error, this time from the 7/30 SmartSource. This coupon says save $1/1, but the barcode is encoded as $1/3. If you purchase just one qualifying item and attempt to redeem this coupon, the checkout computers will say that the purchase requirements were not met.
Our goal is for brands to create accurate coupons, and clearly Newell Brands needs some help. We understand that the GS1 databars are very complicated even for couponing professionals, so we created the CHEQR family of apps. CHEQR enables brands to scan their coupon barcodes before going to press as a verification tool, while CHEQR Pro also contains a user-friendly wizard to help marketers build accurate barcodes. Both apps are available for iPad on the app store.
