So, I missed out on one of the really great coupon insert weekends (1/8)...it's been a few weeks now, but I'm still thinking about it. It had Sunny D coupons, and Boca product coupons...plus I'm sure many more that I could have used. So, I decided that I was going to chance this sale with Kroger and hope they had it again next week...and I bought Sunny D coupons on eBay. I paid $2.00 for 20 coupons, and that includes the shipping.
So the question is, is it moral and ethical to buy coupons online?
I decided it was okay, because you're paying for the service of someone to clip the coupons for you and the shipping of them to your house. If you cut a lot of coupons each week, or are like me and have a coupon binder that you clip coupons for, then you know it takes a long time to clip coupons. So, I've decided that it was okay. The people you see on the Extreme Couponing show do this, the use coupon clipping services. I mean how many bottles of mustard do you need? I've decided that I will probably not use all of the coupons because it's 20 coupons but it's for $0.55/2...so that means 40 bottles. I don't exactly have room for 40 bottles of Sunny D. I would drink it, that's for sure, but where would I store it?! So, my plan is to give the coupons I don't use to others.
Okay, so that was my ranting about clipping services and whether it's okay to use these services. Let me know what you think!
