QR Codes Reduce Coupon Fraud

SmartSource.com is putting a QR Code on all its printable online coupons (image below) so that store personnel can validate them at checkout and detect fraudulent couponing activity. The unique QR Code is scanned and resolves to a security page (image below) that enables the coupon to be verified as genuine. SmartSource.com have said that from today any branded coupon that does not have a QR code should be considered fraudulent.
