Hey you want to get all those coupons without giving up your privacy! I totally understand that. There is a simple way you can block profile access by Facebook apps.

Go to Account – Privacy Settings.

    I set up a separate facebook profile with a fake name and no information except my spam email account address, to use for coupon stuff. That way it doesn’t clutter my personal facebook account and I don’t mind giving the companies access to my profile since there’s nothing on there!

      I did the same thing! I still get a chance at all the goodies but with absolute privacy.
