Go to this micro-site for Dave & Buster's to play a "Spin the Wheel" game. Each spin will result in 1 of 3 possible coupons: 20% off your total purchase, $10 free game play or a free entree with the purchase of an entree. The best part is that you can keep spinning until you get the one you want. You can also print out multiple coupons if you use different email addresses.

It was just a matter of time before businesses began to push back against some of the worst behaviors of extreme couponers. Some retailers and manufacturers have revised their policies lately, restricting the number of coupons consumers can use to prevent them from stripping shelves bare or from paying little or nothing for baskets of groceries. Rite Aid, for example, changed its policy in May so savvy shoppers can no longer double up on buy-one-get-one-free coupons and not pay anything.

SEVERAL DECADES ago, our newspaper's advertising director suggested to me that we run a streamer across the top of the front page advising readers that there were coupons in that edition worth $200. A hidebound traditionalist, I rejected his idea and put something of news value across the top -- or at least what I believed to be news value. That my newspaper -- the Miami News -- eventually went out of business speaks volumes about my reader judgment. While we in the newspaper game believe news is what sells -- that's what our detractors also claim: "They're just doing that to sell newspapers" -- it may not be the case.

Not too long ago if the checkout clerk was busy or inattentive, a grocery shopper could redeem a manufacturer's cents-off coupon without buying the size or quantity required.But these days computer technology is making it impossible to fool even the most harried checker. The same scanners that automatically read the bar code on products for prices are now reading the bar codes on coupons -- instantly telling the cashier if the shopper bought the right size, variety and brand required.Innocent fooling of checkers combined with outright redemption fraud by con artists has cost the food industry and ultimately the consumer between $300 and $400 million a year.

Retailers have known for years that coupons bring in customers, but you would be hard-pressed to find farmers issuing "20 percent off" vouchers. Until now. Every public school kindergartner in Howard County -- all 2,875 -- received a booklet of coupons in recent weeks, redeemable at nine local farms and one cafe that buys its ingredients from farmers. The county's Economic Development Authority coordinated the effort to target families most likely to want hands-on time with animals, crops and corn mazes.

Glen Burnie's Dana Zadia Hardy certainly has a way with a buck. The 37-year-old project manager, whose penny-pinching ways earned her a spot recently on "Extreme Couponing," appeared Wednesday on another money show, "The Price Is Right. "  A longtime fan of the game show, Hardy and some blogging friends who work with her at MsCouponista.com, made a point to drive from Las Vegas to California earlier this year see if they could get on. Hardy did -- and she didn't have to wait ... at all. She was called to "come on down" right as the show opened, bouncing happily into the first contestant spot in front.

On her episode, which was filmed over two days at Saubel's Market in Whiteford, Hardy finds a way to buy frozen vegetables, which usually cost about $3 a bag, for just 17 cents. She got about 90 of them. She also gets seasoning mixes for free and brings home more than 100 of those.

More than 100 years ago, Asa Candler introduced the first coupon in an effort to get people to try a new drink called Coca-Cola. Today, consumers still love their coupons although they're using fewer of them. Coupons remain a powerful way to find bargains, and some retailers that scaled them back have paid a price. And coupons still target a core group of customers for retailers and manufacturers. "Any way you can save money, I'm there," said Lorie Lawson, a 22-year-old cashier from Baltimore who uses coupons for a variety of products, including clothing from the Gap or Old Navy.

Coupons in hand, Natalie Janc races her grocery cart past the bananas and broccoli, slowing down once she reaches the health and beauty aids. She has no grocery list and she's not interested in buying that particular, often elusive, combination of food that will satisfy the quirks, cravings and nutritional requirements of her family of four.

If The Sun wants to encourage better nutrition ("Maryland's evolving harvest," April 19), I would suggest creating a weekly coupon to help with fresh produce and meats. The Sun carries many grocery coupons but seldom for fresh produce or meats. I think coupons - perhaps $5-to-$10 off depending on the size of one's purchase - would help encourage families to buy more vegetables and to eat more healthy. My family spends roughly between $60 and $70 each week on fresh produce.
