Does anyone else prefer "hard copy" coupons?

I definitely prefer them in hard print, like from a mailing or the newspaper. Personally I don't like having to use the paper and ink. It seems silly to me to spend money on those things just to save some. I guess if you only print a few it wouldn't matter. Anyway... anyone else?

I prefer them, because printed ones are easy to counterfeit and they give us HELL!

Yes because some stores give a  hard time with the at home printed ones. :(

I have a hard time printing out some of the coupons.  For example, On Friday I received an email for 15% off any purchase at Barnes & Noble. My dad's b-day is next week and I plan on getting him a few audio books so I woudl love to use this coupon.  No go. I can't get the coupon to load in my browser.

My favorite coupons are the email coupons that they can scan from your phone, or the coupons that come as an app on my phone like Michaels and Hobby Lobby.  I used to always leave my coupons at home so it's nice to always have one on me.  Plus they reset in an hour so I can buy something, go to Target next door, and then come back and use it again.

 I don't like wasting my ink either - however- IF it's a really really good deal on something I do buy, then I will.

 I prefer them just because they are easier for me to keep track of.  I do try to compare ads to the printable coupon list at crazy coupon lady and generally wind up printing out quite a few though so I can't count them out.  They save me lots of money

 Ditto ... I feel like I'm not really saving much if I'm paying to print out coupons a lot

I prefer the ones that I can download digitally- don't have to pay money for anything extra then. The app is already on my phone.
