DES MOINES, Iowa — Hy-Vee is warning shoppers about a fake coupon that’s popping up on social media.
It claims to offer $80 dollars off groceries at Hy-Vee stores and claims it is valid for all items in the store. The offer has been shared widely on Facebook.
However, as many customers are discovering, Hy-Vee is not able to honor the fake coupon.
Hy-Vee says there are ways to tell if an offer like this is fake.
“One of the best ways that you can find out that this is indeed a scam is the domain name says ‘.win.’ Also, when you go to a Hy-Vee site all the materials will be coming from Hy-Vee sites, they won’t be coming from a third party. This one is coming from a third party,” says Hy-Vee spokesperson Tina Potthoff.
Hy-Vee officials are asking shoppers looking for deals to check out their weekly ad or download the Hy-Vee Deals app.
