In 2008, Congress passed a law which gave all customers one additional year to use up any remaining paper coupons that they might still have, As of June 17, 2009 clients were no longer allowed to use coupons. Retail stores had until July 17, 2009 to redeem them at their banks.[/FONT] [FONT="] [/FONT] [FONT="]As of those dates, paper coupons were de-obligated, which means that the Federal government no longer funds them. They are no longer accepted as payment for food at retail stores. Any issues you may have with E-Bay regarding the sale of your de-obligated paper coupons should be resolved directly with E-Bay.[/FONT] [FONT="] [/FONT] [FONT="]We hope this information is helpful to you.[/FONT] [FONT="] [/FONT] [FONT="]Sincerely,[/FONT] [FONT="]BRD-HQ - Webmaster[/FONT][FONT="][/FONT] "BRDHQ-WEB" <BRDHQ-WEB@fns.usda.gov" but here too so many dont care or just don't want to take the time to check things out and they say know what they are talking about but do they ???? or is it too much info ???
