Customer hungry manufacturers and online retailers are offering Internet
coupons to consumers free for printing. There are several websites that
amass these coupons into clearing houses where the Internet user can
browse through categories and print up savings for him on nearly all
brands and all types of consumer goods. Just a quick search on any
browser will bring scores of coupon offers. Some websites have mini
search engines that allow the user to enter exactly what brand or type of
item he is seeking and then perform a search. The website will direct him
to a source for coupons on exactly this product and some websites will
bring a printable coupon directly to the screen for immediate use.

With all user-friendly atmosphere Internet coupons, why are they listed
on EBAY of resale by auction? Coupons are designed to be given away for
free, why bid on them?

It doesn’t make sense at first glance to go to all the trouble to
register, log in search and bid on a free item like an Internet coupon
when it is so easy to get them in the first place. Nevertheless, there
are multiple auctions for Internet coupons under the heading of
“certificates”. Why bother? Is it that people are just so taken with EBAY
and other auction sites and really enjoy the thrill and competition of an
online auction? At this level, probably, not. It isn’t much of an auction
and the competition can’t be too much of a thrill when most coupons sell
for around a dollar. More likely, it is the selection of Internet coupons
that is being offered on EBAY that is the cause of the appeal. These are
not “cents off” manufacturers’ coupons on grocery items.

The coupons listed on EBAY are more upscale or for more expensive
purchases such as computers and related products, electronics and for
retailers like Gymboree. The coupons are offered for price you must haves
items and they are for significant price reductions. The average coupon
for sale on EBAY is for $50 of a purchase or it may be a collection of
$10 off coupons at a single retailer. Other Internet coupons offered at
auction are for 25 to 30% of purchases at online retailers like Office
Max and Circuit City. But by far the largest category on Internet coupons
on sale at EBAY is for high-end children’s products like Gymboree and
Jack n Jill where devoted Internet savvy Grannies are shopping for the
perfect gift. (Let’s face it, most parents settle for Target for kid’s
clothes and Toys R US for playthings).

It is fairly obvious that it is worth it to the buying to take the time
to bid on and purchase an Internet coupon for $50 off purchase of an item
he is planning to buy. Even after paying $1 purchase price and up to $4
shipping, the consumer is going to save nearly $59. But how can such
small transactions as a dollar plus fees to EBAY result in much of an
income for the seller? The answer, as in most sales related things is
volume. Internet coupons are offered by sellers who have lots of hundreds
of these coupons.
