Selling Coupons

Coupons are an amazing business on eBay and extremely profitable! In fact they are one of the best listed/sold ratio on eBay. I’ve seen everything from free soda coupons to discounts on dog food, baby formula, food products, make-up, and of course just about everything else.

Coupon come in a variety of shapes, colors, sizes and discounts. There’s a coupon available for just about every product or service that can be imagined. I’m sure that you’vecome across a coupon recently that would have been a great seller on eBay!

Cabela’s $20 dollars off $100 dollar purchase! (below)

There are several people that sell coupons that they find in the Sunday and Wednesday newspaper. They create an entire business just from that source. I recommend that use as many sources as possible.

I’ve personally sold  Lowe’s coupons, Subway coupons, Fashion Bug coupons and many more. I’ve made a profit on each one and received nice feedback as well. This is a great item to add to your arsenal of eBay auction items!

Let me show you a few example “$20 dollars off any $100 dollar purchase” It’s from a national chain store. I picked it up this afternoon!

It’s Free Cash! Sell one a day and at the end of the month pay a bill or two. Sell 5 or 6 a day and make a car payment at the end of the month! Once you realize that this is money you will start seeing coupons everywhere.

The Coupon received 3 bids and ended at $2.25 This coupon was free.  It’s basically a piece of what many people refer to as “junk mail”. When you see these items laying around you are looking at carelessly tossed out free money. Everyone’s heard the term one mans junk is another mans treasure, but did you know that applied to junk mail as well?

Next is a typical and pretty common Lowe’s coupon that comes in the mail (I’ve sold them). When Lowes does this promotion they are usually all around. Most people just toss them away.

This is a lot of 6 Lowe’s coupons offered on eBay at 11.99


But the big question, did they sell? The answer, YES they sold over and over!lowescoupon_sold

Thats 30 coupons for $60.00 dollars! That’s big money and that’s an entire business if you do it full time. Or do what I do and add it to your collection of income streams!

Let me just say that coupons are certainly not the hardest thing to come across. In fact generally speaking it’s much more difficult to avoid them then to get a hold of them.

When I checked out at the grocery store today I received 5 coupons along with my receipt.

There are many different ways to get coupons. You can pick them up in the local papers, but be sure to search the entire paper not just the coupon section, try the entertainment section as well. Many local newspapers offer coupons on both Sunday as well as an additional coupon day, generally Wednesday or Thursday.

Get on mailing lists, it’s easy to you can sign up on the Internet. Get on the major distributors mailing lists such as Johnson & Johnson, Proctor & Gamble, Purina , Lowe’s, Home Depot, Enfamil, etc. I guarantee they are everywhere. It’s basically free money, pick it up.

    FYI. Selling coupons taken from the post office may be illegal. If you are caught, it may mean PRISON due to mail fraud. Making a profit from items printed and to be used solely by the post office is highly illegal. You may want to do some research before instructing people to steal and sell government property.

    I’m not sure that you fully understood. At our local post office there are two large bins where people toss their junk mail and a table where people leave coupons and offerings that others may be interested in using.

    It’s up for grabs and does not belong to the post office if anything it belongs to the trash company.

  7. Thank you for your post post.Really thank you! Great.

    HI, I am a small time seller ( and also buyer) on Ebay. My problem is , how to price a coupon, say I have a set of coupons from Camel cigarette;s. total discount $3.50. what should be my margin? I always thought that roughly 25 to 30% of total discount should be my asking price , for free coupons. what IS the profit mark up on coupons anyway? LOL

    Hey so I tried to post coupons on eBay last week. And they deleted them sayin u were only allowed to sell either 20 coupons or $100 worth? Can u tell me how to get around that?

  11. Robert says:

    Ebay won’t let me sell coupons unless I have an established seller’s account and limit to $100 a month. There are better options out there.
