Can I appeal expiration date on DTV Coupons?


I just went to purchase a converter box for my 88 1/2 year old mother. She lives on $400 per month and we were waiting to purchase the boxes until finances permitted. At the store I was told the coupons had expired. It shocked me as I only had the coupons for a couple of months.

I have tried calling to re-order but based on what I heard I probably won’ get replacement coupons. I am checking for consumer support to see if I can appeal. Do you have any suggestions?
