This Sunday’s 10/22 Smart Source contained multiple coupon barcode errors. The worst example is the Excedrin coupon errors.

This error could have easily been prevented by using a tool like CHEQR. CHEQR is a coupon quality control app for iPad that enables manufacturers and printers to scan their coupon barcodes before going to press.
