Have you chanced upon TLC’s new show, “Extreme Couponing?” In keeping with the television ethic of promoting the most radical and extreme aspects of life and culture, Extreme Couponing shows people purchasing and hoarding tremendous amounts of stuff they bought at ridiculously low prices.
You may say to yourself “How is this even possible?” Well, there are allegations from a couponing website that at least one extreme couponer isn’t on the up and up.
At Jill Cataldo’s blog there posts that contain allegations of fraud and evidence supporting their argument. “TLC’s Extreme Couponing raising controversy as new season approaches” and “Was coupon fraud shown on TLC’s Extreme Couponing?” are the posts you’ll want to check out for yourself.
While I want to save money at the store like everyone else, I draw the line at unethical behavior. If a couponing technique requires that I violate the terms of a coupon, I won’t do it. Did an extreme couponer misbehave? Go, check the evidence, and see for yourself.
