Hi DrMarc, hope you don't mind, but I moved your post to this section: Government Coupon Program Questions - DTV USA Forum

This sounds like a "bug/glitch" with the converter coupon system, and actually, it's the first reported possible cause of why some people are having problems using their coupons on the last day before expiration. (Reference:

I'll do a little digging into what can be done. It's doubtful there will be any course of action that can re-validate your coupons, but atleast your thread can "alert" others who are planning to purchase a converter box on the last day of the expiration date.


Yeah I agree, where you live and where they are sent from should not make a difference. I think that some stores make up things to get you to make the purchase without the coupon. They are hoping to make a few more dollars on their end.

I am rather surprised at this. I thought that they were good all over. I have never heard of anything like this before. What do you think you will do about it.
