"Redeemable At" v. "Redeemable Only At"

In my search for a difinitive answer to the "Redeemable ONLY" and "Redeemable at" question, I found an interesting YouTube video.  Just click here, it's a little long but interesting, and it didn't answer my question about these coupons at all! 

I did find a forum on A Full Cup with several responses.  A majority of couponers say it's ok to use those manufactuer's coupons anywhere regardless of the "only".  I'm not in 100% agreement on this one.  Take the two coupons above.  The Sambazon says "redeemable ONLY at Publix" and the Pepsi says "redeemable at Publix".  I wouldn't want to use the Sambazon coupon anywhere but at Publix because that ONLY is pretty clear, and strait forward.  The similar wording on the Pepsi coupon feels more like a recommendation to use it at Publix rather than a direct order.  So, I'd be ok using the Pepsi coupon here in Hopkins County. 

I really wish the manufacturer's would come out with a "couponing 101" to make this easier for us, don't you?

Be sure to check out this post by Tiffany at My Litter titled A Word About Fraudulent Coupons.  It's very informative if you've wondered about the validity of printable coupons.  If you're printing your coupons from legitimate websites, you should never have to worry that your coupon is a fraud.  And, if you're just not sure about a coupon or you can't get a verification on it, just don't use it.
