This is very strange - It downloaded an application to my computer which I have to install to progress.

I'm not saying this is spam or a virus, but there is no way in hell I'm installing something unverified like this. It shouldn't be required for a voucher either - Thus my security head is saying "Stay clear".

Bearing in mind your identity can be stolen in 5 mins if someone has access to your email, it's worth being a bit safer.

Quite normal for coupons. Use a disposable email and run the app in a sandbox.

this is normal for coupon printer, that's how they make sure you only print the limit they set normally it's one or two.

You say it's normal - I don't do it *that* much but whenever I have done it, I have never once been asked to install something!

Either way, DRM (digital rights management) is a huge security no-no. Gaming companies were ripped apart for using DRM due to the security and performance problems it can incur.

For the sake of a free smoothy, I'm not going to install random apps on my computer. It also isn't clear anyway what the downloadable is which makes it even worse. In their case, I would put a huge "You must download and install an application to print the voucher and this is the reason why...." rather than have a "click here to print" which then downloads an app...

The way this works isn't good or secure.

Just install sandboxie and stop whinging

You miss the point, obviously...

Also dislike the idea, voting cold for that pure reason.

I think it's fair enough to be wary of downloadable apps - better safe than sorry. More people should be like that.
As it is though, I've used these for a while - read the privacy statements, checked whether it stays resident and whether there's any comms when not in use and have satisfied myself that it's OK.

for anyone that wants more info, it uses the CPBRKPIE control and Mcafee have more details on its use (mcafee.com/thr…314 ) and threat level. It is defined as a Potentially Unwanted Program, as it's often installed with toolbars, but in this case it's installed because you want it. There are no overheads, apart from it being initialised whenever you launch the browser - but do what I do and disable it after first use until needed again.

Also, remember you can print more than one copy - they do come out with individual barcodes.

Great - Thanks for that

It still confused me why they don't have a web app that does the same thing - It feels like the 1990's!

It allows them to keep track and allow you to print multiple coupons but with a limit. A web app with cookies is easily open to abuse, this way the plugin generates the coupon with unique ids. In this example you can print two unique coupons. It also allows them to keep track across companies (as they supply innocent, pizza companies and so on) so it builds up a profile on who uses what sort of coupon for future marketing - I'm happy with that as it does serve a purpose and not a blanket approach like google tracking. Without the app you'd probably have to register on each site that offered a coupon and keep track of the marketing settings for each, so both me and the company are happy

No good for us Linux users.

Can anyone share the coupon?

Cheers

Coupons are unique & valid for one use only... they can't be shared I am afraid.

Exactly! .. thats been the same 'process' for that of the Danone Yoghurts, & the Shreddies Cereals + 'Others' besides? (annoying as it is?, but ..... )

What can I say? lol.

Just tried using this coupon In asda. But they apparently don't accept coupons printed from the Internet

Won't print!! Always have issues with software delivered codes!!

Me too

Thanks, got one!

Cheers OP, got 2 vouchers. Redeemed at Sainsbury's and each voucher was for £2.35. Smoothies were only £2 each.

Note you can only use one voucher per shop at Sainsbury's.

Thank you got coupon. Nice one.

I'll print mine later. Thanks

just been to ASDA with coupon and bought one (normal price £1.75) but coupon was worth £2.35 and £2.35 did come off total ..8)

printed for me thanks

printed for me too - thanks. Also thanks to the poster who mentioned Sandboxie - this way you can download all the software required to print this voucher and then magically it all vanishes off your computer without leaving any horrible traces. Great! Also, if you use multiple computers you can get a fresh voucher on each computer Now off to Tesco to see if I can get some five-a-day goodness

Original Poster
