According to the Federal Trade Commission, there is only one way to legally use grocery or other manufacturer's coupons: clip the coupon and use it at the grocery store or other business toward the purchase of its designated product or service. While some people get around this legality by selling their time for finding, clipping, and mailing grocery and other manufacturer's coupons, it is frowned upon by the manufacturers who distribute these coupons. Most are marked "non-transferable", meaning that even if they are given away they should be considered void.
