That said, there are usually a few times a month when I come across a coupon that is worthy of stocking up on. If it will get me a desirable product for free or nearly free, I have no problem paying a couple dollars for 10-20 extras!
When they come along, I’ve found the best place to get them is on Ebay. Compared to the other coupon clipping sites, Ebays coupon prices usually can’t be beat.
Here are a few tips for getting a good deal:
~if a coupon is popular, I scroll through the listings and look for a BUY IT NOW option. That means, you can choose to pay the asking price and avoid the bidding process. Sometimes folks go crazy for the popular coupons at auction – especially in the last 6-12 hours.
~if you prefer to bid and find you’re not the only one interested in the item, I suggest using the WATCH THIS ITEM option and waiting until the last 3-5 minutes before the item listing ends to place your bid. That way, you don’t need to worry about a bidding tug-o-war, and you won’t get caught up in the competition of it all. Just decide ahead of time the maximum you’re willing to pay, and place that as your bid as near to the item end as possible. Then walk away!
~Be sure to consider shipping costs. Some sellers offer coupons shipped for free, and many others offer a discounted shipping rate if you purchase more than one listing from them. This should be spelled out in the product details.
~Most coupons are available for sale the Saturday before they come out in the newspaper. The sooner you go looking for them, the better price you’ll get. Any good BUY IT NOW deals will be snagged up right away!
HOW TO FIND THEM:
Just stop over HERE and type in the name of the product and the word “coupon”. For example: “Nutri Grain coupon” will bring up results for all the sellers listing these. You can see a list of all coupons available on Ebay by stopping over HERE.
I choose my sellers based on their feedback rating. If it’s 99% positive or better and they’ve had at least 50 transactions under their belt, I feel confident purchasing from them.
