Today’s post may seem short, but could definitely save you some money if you have the patience to jump through some hoops. First off, there used to be a way to simply go to the local post office and get some really good coupons like 10% off at Lowes/Home Depot, or safe 25% on an appliance at Sears. To curb people taking and selling these coupons that were easily available you now need to pay $1 though the USPS and actually fill out a moving form.
If you aren’t moving, don’t know someone who is, or plan don’t want to commit mail fraud, good news! There is an alternative to finding nearly any coupon in the world. Ebay! Yep that’s right, people are selling all sorts of ridiculous coupons, such as employee only coupons and others that you probably wouldn’t have access to. Another added bonus is that Ebay doesn’t allow them to “sell” coupons so you are technically bidding on their time looking for and mailing the coupon, which seems to keep a coupon that could save you $100 under 2 dollars.
A few things I have bought coupons for:
Birthday Gaming Coupons (25% off for EA Games)
Staples $25 off $100 (Handy for buying hard drives!) I wouldn’t shop here otherwise, but the coupon makes them very competitive.
Sears 25% off any Kenmore Appliance (Awesome if you are looking!)
Have you considered buying coupons off Ebay or elsewhere off the internet? There are virtually coupons available for everything and sneaky sellers allow you to find ones you wouldn’t have access to otherwise.
