I belong to another social networking group that has been posting several discussions about buying coupons on ebay. I've never tried it myself. I'm curious how many people in this Frugal Living group on mylot also buy coupons on eBay. So - do you buy coupons on eBay?

No I don't, most of the time it's a waste of time because you can find them in the newspaper. Sometimes it may be a good idea because you can get free coupons on ebay. It's probably better to buy a gift card on ebay than coupons. Pablo

I've never bought coupons off of there, but I have listed them. Mostly baby item coupons..formula, diapers, cereals things like that. It's crazy sometimes the money you can get for them. It is a violation to SELL coupons--- but if you list it "as buying your time to list the coupons", then that is okay and not a violation. i'm not sure WHO it violates-- I just know it's some kind of violation, and you don't get in trouble if you put the disclaimer in there.

I wouldn't buy coupons on eBay, it seems a bit pointless somehow.

If it's illegal I don't think so. But otherwise if its an honest income earning program why not?

I've never bought coupons on eBay, as it's something that I've only recently realised there was a large market in. I don't buy a great deal on eBay at all right now, but I think if I had a specific item or event in mind I'd check on eBay for any coupons or discount codes before I purchased. My worry with coupons etc on eBay is the risk that they're forgeries or not quite what they seem. I suppose that's the same with anything that you purchase sight unseen though, and I don't think it would stop me.

I won't buy coupons on ebay. I find it kinda silly. The only coupons I get are the ones that given to me from my aunt who gets them in her Sunday newspaper.
