Ebay Coupons

 Usually around this time of year you will see lots of sales on baking and cooking ingredients.  So I like to look for extra coupons so I can stock up when the right sale comes along.  Here are some of my favorites that I found on ebay.

Idaho did not get this coupon…$1/2 Nestle Tollhouse Morsels.  There are also some for $1.25 off of 3 Nestle Tollhouse Morsels.  This would go nicely with the sale at Fred Meyer right now:

Nestlé Toll House Morsels, 10-12oz, $1.88
Use in-ad coupon, limit 4
Use $1/2 Nestle Toll House Morsels from 11/06 SS (from ebay)
Or use $.50/1 Nestle Toll House Morsels
Or use $1/2 Nestle Toll House Morsels
Final Price: $1.39 each WYB2

More Coupons:

 

C&H Sugar Coupons  There are many $$$ amounts to choose from.  Great to have around for all the baking sales and doubles.


Crisco Coupons  Most of these are $.50/1 or $1/2 but with doubles you might be able to score some cheap Crisco spray

.
$1/1 Mission Tortilla Coupons  I love this coupon because it usually means FREE Tortillas with doubles!

    I thought it was illegal to buy coupons? Isn’t that fraud?

  • I noticed you didn’t think $1.32 was a good stock up price for the baking chocolate chips but a few other sites, also for the northwest area, thinks it is…. In your experience do they normally go lower in price before Christmas?

    I’ve asked a similar question before and it ranged from ” yeah 1.32 is a pretty good price” to “wait until they are at least 65% of the normal cost”….I would just like more input.

      You know last year the lowest price I found them for was $.99 for Hershey chips. Prices have drastically increased since then so I have a hard time reconfiguring my stock up prices because I suffer a bit from sticker shock! But in all reality it probably is a stock up price.

        I think a lot of us are having a hard time with that. Food prices just seem to be through the roof lately. I’ve started to figure that if I haven’t seen it at my “stock-up” price in 6 months to a year, depending on the product, it might be time to just accept that the stock-up price has increased. I’m just so glad I’m well stocked on peanut butter!

  • Safeway a couple of weeks ago did a BOGO with the second one free and I used a $1.00 of each one on top of that. The only problem was that it was for the dark chocolate morsels.

    The CIC (Coupon Information Corporation) has stated the following on their website regarding the buying/selling of coupons or “your time of clipping” :
    Can I sell my extra coupons?

    No, there is no legitimate way to sell your unwanted coupons.

    The sale or transfer of coupons is a violation of virtually all manufacturers’ coupon redemption policies. These policies are generally printed on the coupons or are available from the manufacturer upon request. Any sale or transfer voids the coupon.

    Persons purchasing coupons have often been associated with organized criminal activities. They often purchase the coupons as one aspect of a scheme to defraud the coupon issuers/manufacturers, usually by seeking to redeem coupons without purchasing any products. Individuals selling coupons to such crime rings have been charged with and convicted of criminal violations.

    What about selling “the service of clipping coupons” or an envelope that “just happens to contain coupons”?

    Individuals selling or auctioning coupons often know that such sales and auctions are in violation of the terms and conditions of the coupons. As such, they may include an invalid disclaimer, such as, “I’m selling my time to clip the coupons, not the coupons themselves. Such disclaimers are invalid and do not provide any legal protection to either party. Such obviously invalid disclaimers merely serve to prove that the seller/auctioneer knows that their illicit coupon sales are inappropriate, wrong, and subject to civil and/or criminal penalties, depending on the situation.

    Can I buy coupons?

    No, there are good reasons not to purchase coupons. In addition to being in violation of the manufacturers’ policies, it simply does not make sense to pay for something that is given away for free.

    Coupons being sold on the Internet or by other means may be stolen property or counterfeit. Individuals attempting to use these coupons may be subject to prosecution.

    • Mandy, is there a law that prohibits the sale of coupons?

      Here is a great quote from Michelle Easter of Refund Cents: “It is a crime to defraud manufacturers. If you are cheating manufacturers by counterfeiting coupons, by altering coupons, or are trying to bilk money from manufacturers for coupons never used to purchase products, you are in legal trouble. On the other hand, no matter where you got a legitimate coupon (from your newspaper, from your mom’s newspaper, from a coupon clipping service, from the trash, from a manufacturer’s website, from a blinkie machine, etc), as long as you redeem it properly in the store, you are fine.” taken from this website: http://www.couponallies.com/coupon-allies/buying-selling-trading-coupons.html

      I buy my coupons every week because I have a newspaper subscription I pay for. When needed, I’ll buy extras off of eBay. I use the coupons ethically and legitimately.

        Still seems unethical since most coupons state on them void if purchased, it also seems like there would be a lot less of people taking 20-100 of each items because they were able to “buy” their coupons from Ebay or a clipping service. If the mfg. wanted you to be able to have access to as many of their coupons as you wanted it seems like they would offer them or make them available. I don’t think they intended for people to be able to buy such a large amount at a time. I know a lot of stores have also complained about being able to keep items in stock and having their warehouses out of product because so many people are able to purchase large of amounts of coupons online.

        • IMO, if this was a huge issue, eBay would shut it down. If this was a huge issue, manufacturers would work on shutting it down.

          What is happening: verbiage on coupons similar to “no more than 4 like items”. And stores are placing limits. Which is great! The product isn’t gone on the first day of the sale… more people get a chance to purchase a day or two after the sale start date.

          In regards to the verbiage, “void if…”, this gives the manufacturer the option to not reimburse the store if they feel like there was coupon abuse. Although, if coupons are used correctly, there is no loss. Manufacturers are able to choose what restrictions they want on the coupon as well as where/how much as far as distribution goes. They choose how many to publish and certainly there is a large % of coupons that are never redeemed.

          Do I buy coupons and 100’s of items every week? No. In fact, there is only a handful of items that cause me to buy coupons on eBay. In the past 4 months the only coupons I have personally bought have been for Prego. I went on the last night of the sale and purchased about 60 jars of Prego for $.50 each. Now I’ve got my 1 year supply of Prego… something my large family consumes on a weekly basis. I didn’t clear the shelves or hoard. My store will be reimbursed, and I know I don’t have to run out and pay full price for Prego for quite a while!

    The Mission Tortilla coupons have been around for quite awhile, those are my favorite but since they are perforated I’m guessing they came from sheets originally.

    Selling coupons on Ebay has had some new regulations, they pop up when you list within the coupon category. I purchase 3 Sunday papers, keep the coupons I can use and sell the remaining ones in lots of 100 on Ebay. After the listing fee/final value fees and Paypal fee you really make nothing on it but I use that $ to purchase coupons I cannot find locally. If I knew someone in real life to trade with I would, but I do not and I figure someone out there is still getting some use out of the ones I could not use.

    If I need more of something quick I use the clipping service of a gal 20 minutes from me.
