My issue is, why would you have so much stuff you need to donate or sell?! Sure I cringe a little when I see a great coup, check my stock and realize I dont need it. But I do know that it will happen again.
Its the families with bottles of Gillette body wash at home that are the ones wiping shelves clean week after week. Instead of selling it, donating it or whatever just dont take it!!
Donate if you have a surplus… I have a hard time getting what I need at the stores in our area as it is.
Our shelves are always wiped clean of product. So I would not love to see people making money on the stockpiles…. I say who cares what other people do!!!! They put the time into getting the items, they can do what they want with it. Everyone needs to just mind their own business!!! Brooke S June 21, at I just started couponing a few months ago and I already have a stockpile.
Sorry to anyone that gets offended. How is that hurting the manufacture? The only way that the manufactire will get hurt is if you figure out a way to produce the item and sell it without them having any profit. Like copying CDs and selling them. Or downloading music without paying for it. Other then that the manufacture is not getting hurt. You purchased the item and you paid for it. Just be reasonable with your selling price since that manufarure was with you buy providing you with a coupon to start with.
But worse is the people that go into the store and steal the coupons. Or go to the newstand machine and steal the coupons out of all the newspaper and only pay for one. All that does is in the long run hurt all of us. If you are buying to resell that means you are trying to conduct a business and therefore need to have a valid re-sale permit and claim on your taxes. So I believe that reselling items to make money is wrong! If you got too much-donate! I mean at least she is not throwing the stuff aways or wasting it!
I find nothing wrong with it! I personally think that it is wrong to coupon for the purpose of resale. If you have that much of any item, donate it, gift it out or simply do not buy it. It is inconsiderate to make everyone else who wants the deal suffer just so you can make a buck or two.
There was a lady here that was banned from Walgreens. One of the shoppers at her Garage sale had seen her in Walgreens prior to her garage sale and then she seen all the items on a table.
She took pictures, went to Walgreens, and they banned her! Can Walgreens do that??? We reserve the right to refuse to sell products to you if it reasonably appears to us that you intend to resell said products. Verification of information may be required prior to our acceptance of any order.
We further reserve the right to limit quantities of items purchased by each customer. How is selling items from your stockpile any different from selliing items you recieved as gifts and never used? We see very clearly those who embrace capitalism vs.
The capitalists would say that if consumers have taken the time to clip their coupons and find the deals, which were absolutely attained ethically and legally, they should certainly be allowed to sell them if they choose. Others those who may have socialistic tendencies?
AND, I might add, it seems that some are harshly judging those who do sell their stock. They are ethically bankrupt! Okay, so maybe my views are becoming evident. Shelf-clearing, we can all agree, is rude. But beware of letting others decide for us when we have attained too much and must redistribute it. That scares me- a lot. Very well said Laurie!! I donate a lot, but I do keep a lot for my own use. Nothing wrong with that. I do sell items to my brothers though. So I make sure I put a little post it on most items to remind me what I paid for it.
They stop it and while the person is mad at me, more people get in on the deal. We are in a tricky financial situation with just the two of us, so I understand why someone would sell their stockpile. However I think it comes down to various morals. My personal morals would keep me from doing it because if I got something for cheap or free, I would rather donate it.
Not to mention the Red Cross takes personal item donations as well. While my personal morals would cause me to feel terrible for selling something I got from couponing, if you can do it and not feel bad about it, more power to you. However, do not clear shelves and ruin things for the rest of us. I live in a small town. I do my shopping at my local Walgreens.
Every week when I shop most of the items the shelves are all cleared. I usally get the last item or two on the shelves. Most stores have limited stock on hand. Always empty shelves where the sale items should be. There are SO many homeless and disabled veterans who are struggling to take care of themselves and their families.
And what better way to share than to those who have fought for our rights? I love this idea! She can use them at the PX and shares them with the other military families in her area. I love to coupon. Sometimes I buy more than I need.
I have a job with a flexible schedule so I can go out almost every day. I resell some of my things at our yard sales. I also make baskets for people who need it. I made one for a lady from church who lost her job. Another for a family who is struggling to pay bills with one income. Someone else might need it. I give out laundry soap to my family instead of them having to buy it. I may see a story shared on facebook about a family struggling. I take lots to them.
I agree that you should not clear the shelf. I also believe that once you buy that item it is yours, whether you used a coupon or cash to purchase it. If you purchase it with a coupon that you got in your news paper how is that any different than cash. That item is now yours bought and payed for in a legal manner. Why would a store be mad at this practice if they are still getting their money, be it a coupon or cash.
I see many Avon, Tastefully Simple, and the like products sold at garage sales that the people were obviously reps and selling inventory. How is it any different. Its their product, they were cut a deal on it, and they are selling it, and I am sure most are making something still on them or they would be giving them as gifts at their parties.
When I get something with a coupon for free, I still see it as I paid for it, I did the work to buy the paper, cut the coupon and organize it and take it to the store to use it. It is now my product and I can use it, gift it, donate it, or sell it like anything else I paid for with cash.
It is the reason I am in the business is to make money. And with couponing, I do it to save my family money and if I have too many of something, why not sell it to someone for a good deal and make a little for all my time and work. As you said it is no different than paying cash for a product then selling it. I am definitly not a shelf clearer but I do accumulate alot of stuff and my extras I give to friends and family and also sale some at my annual yard sale at alot cheaper than you would pay at the store and people are happy to pay that price it helps my family and also theirs!
I even tell people if they ask how I got all the new stuff that im a couponer and need to get rid of some of it noone seems to mind! Now that ive read the comments my opinion is….. I just dont get it lol.
This is a great topic! The items that I did sell, I got for free, or nearly free, and l did sell them to make me a profit, but the people that bought them still got a great deal. If she paid for them, or got them free with coupons, they are her items.
How can they prove that those items were from their store? He works hard for our money, I work hard to save our money. I am very torn on it. I fully agree with someone selling off their extras in that kind of situation and think they are showing initiative and working hard cause couponing is work to help themselves rather than expecting others to do it for them, but, I do not agree with the shelf clearers who stock up leaving nothing for others just so they can sell the stuff, especially if they are financially stable and just want play money or the thrill.
I would rather give it to someone or charity that would use it instead of selling it in a garage sale….. I believe if you have too much donate please. I get that you paid little or none for it but paying it forward is so much better.
If you can afford to have too much then give. Thats why the rich get richer and the poor get poorer. I went to a garage sale a few weeks ago and this lady was obviously a great coupon person.
The issue I had with this was that the items were the same price as new. I would have gladly purchased the Dawn for slightly less, but when it was the highest price that the soap ever is, well, I will wait for a sale at the store.
I am one of those people that believe that if you have it and want to sell it, fine sell it. It was yours, you paid for it, in time, in effort and money invested. I worked at a shelter here and they eat better and have plenty of donations from large corporations to fill their coffers. I am so glad that this was re-posted! My family has been struggling to stay afloat through a layoff and my going back to school. Thankfully I found couponing and it has been the ONLY thing keeping us from defaulting on every bill we have!
I do not clear shelves when I coupon, but I do order the amount that I need. What I do not use I give to my family, donate, and recently have decided that it is time to have a garage sale. With the fall semester looming close I need to figure out how to get school supplies, books, and gas to and from school, and if selling part of my stock pile ables me to purchase these needs then I will do so.
Their purpose are to get rid of items you no longer need or use. Clearing shelves is a good thing but price it at garage sale prices — not store prices. Then use the donation receipt on your taxes. I do it because my family needs the financial help that these help provide.
It was almost a cart full of deoderent! I get the stockpile thing. Then it has to be either donated to a shelter that feeds or thrown away. I agree with you about all of the perishable items. It is almost wastefull with freezers full of food that will undoubtedly go bad before they are used. That is why I am THE couponer of my family. When it is time for anyone in my family to go grocery shopping they stop buy my home first.
If I can get food for free then those I love will too, and my frozen stock pile never goes bad. I am also so glad to have caught this article.
I have a newborn in the hospital born 10 weeks early and to help with the stress i discovered couponing. Not only does it save us money on things we need, it keeps my mind occupied when things get stressed. Needless to say, I have started quite a little stockpile for my standards anyway and was wondering if it is ethical to sell them on ebay.
I was going to create a dollar store of sorts and whatever money i made would go back into the couponing. This is a touchy topic for me. As I believe you should donate if you have extra. However due to tough times and neither my husband or I having a job I have thought about having a garage sale to sell what little extra I have acquired just to put food on the table. Providing for your family comes first! Wow, it is a tough delimma.
Like many others, I am continuely frustrated by empty shelves. Luckily our Walgreens is not a 24 hour store so I was able to get there when the doors opened on Sunday and got every item I had on my list, mostly thanks to a woman who was gracious enough to let me have the 2 Cottenelle tp packs I wanted before she cleared the shelvles.
She was part of a tag-team that split their lists ahead of time so they would be sure they each got what they wanted. The question I had to myself was, were they buying up all the good deals for their own use, or for resale?
I guess if they were only buying all of that just to put it in a garage sale to make a profit, well, then my impression would have changed a bit. In my eyes they may have been taking away the opportunity for someone else, probably worse off than I am financially, to get in on the good deals. Early bird catches the worm? Maybe, but not everyone has the opportunity to get there early.
Maybe the stores should take some of the blame, they should know by now which items are going to fly off the shelves and be able to restock appropriately? I do agree that once someone makes a purchase they should be free to do with it as they please. Last I checked, it is still a free country. I just wish those people would be considerate of others before they clear the shelf. I think its BS to sell it at a garage sale. Thats a no-brainer for me, I think its ridiculous that people do that.
Thank you so much Chelsea! Save it at the store for people who will use it. Not only is it in caps on products but its there for a reason. Now, my favorite cashier informed me that not only did one lady buy them all, but she came back and recieved a raincheck for more.
Not saying that all people that pull things like this are reselling, but highly doubt they will be donating a bunch of razors and probably other things. Using donation as an excuse to buy more items is a cop out. I have similar problems at cvs, but considering cvs DOES have limits and you only get the perks for the number allowed its an easier place to shop. We have a local lady that does the same every week here…. Many people are unemployed and not making it now. I either have to decide if I can scrounge around to see if I can afford full retail or I have to do without.
I started couponing as a way to survive. I usually do my shopping early sunday mornings before the stock trickles out, so I know shelf clearing is going on hardcore in my area. Its definitely a very grey area.
I can provide my customers with cheaper items then they would normally pay and it helps support my family so I am ok with this. I was discussing this with my husband, he brought up a really good point…..
The manufacturers and stores that are producing and accepting the coupons are not being philanthropic in letting us use the coupons. Their ultimate goal is to make money and gain customers. They may have not paid for it, but they did the work, and all us couponers know, couponing is work! Live and let live….
There is nothing wrong with it, if people are getting the items for less than the store sells it, and you are still making a profit…who cares? My mom said there would probably be a lot of Nivea body wash at the flea market when that coupon was out.
If that is the case, then you should all quit being hypocrites and relinquish every single one of your luxuries to help everyone less fortunate than yourselves. For the shelf-clearers, I have this to say: The bottom line is this: I just wish people would MTOB!!!! I quality for government assistance, but am unwilling to actually sign up for it.
I work a full-time job and do what I can. If someone I know needs something, I give it to them. And one day I hope to be at the point that I can afford to buy extra items and donate them to my local food pantry that has helped me in my time of need. I have mixed feelings about it also but I think it is not the right thing to do. I try not to get stuff that I do no need with coupons others who need it can get them. The thing is that we spend money on newspapers and gas to drive to stores and printer paper and ink so why should we not get some money back.
I do not think I would sell the stuff at a garage sale I would perfer to donate but others might need the money and it is there stuff to sell if they want to.
How is it ethically ok to get something for FREE and get a tax write off on it by donating it? We held a garage sale this past summer. At the garage sale, we sold all kinds of items that we cleaned out. And yes, some of the items in our garage sale were from our stockpile!
Our family originally want to send a large portion of our stockpile to Joplin, Missouri to assist tornado victims. However, that was not a need for the victims seeing as most in need no longer had a home!
Instead, we sold these items so that we could send them money. Every penny that we made from the garage sale went to a church in Joplin, Missouri to assist tornado victims. Be careful before you judge. People may just be trying to help others out. I think it is a great way to help ppl get a good price on stuff.
Not everyone has the time or patience to coupon and it gives them a chance to save also. I find that if you wait until a week or even a few days before the coupon expires you are more likely to get the item. Since a lot of coupons only allow 4 items per transaction, I have just made it a habit to only add 4 of each item to my stock pile. The world of buying selling all works on the same principal.
Buy low sell high. I also resale items online that I buy at yard sales, thrift stores and Goodwill. It is how the world works. In the end, the companies and the stores that sell these products make tens of millions of dollars. If it hurting them if you resell the items for pennies compared to what they are making? Yep I do, it goes into my business fund. There are a lot of people that use ebay like a yard sale. I see nothing wrong with selling anything you own for money.
There are those that sell wine corks on ebay. These days you can sell anything. No it shouldnt matter. Couponing is very time consuming, and if people want to sell their goods then go for it!! Like you said, it is no different than the vendors you see at fairs and carnivals.
Do you really think they paid the same price for that can of pepsi that you are buying it for? Everyone is struggling to make a buck these days. I personally am over all the bs that goes with couponing and have not done it for several months now. I live in a small town and the shelves are ALWAYS cleared, and most usually by the very people heading our local coupon groups.
Walgreens had no business banning that customer either. I am a couponer and I do it to save my family money…but this idea of buying extra and reselling it to make ends meet is ludicrous. There are jobs out…maybe not your ideal ones but there are jobs. The politics behind couponing has become ridiculous. I guess I have a different theory behind my couponing…I do it in small doses to help stretch our budget.
I start again in January. Any couponer that has a stockpile has earned it. Many times over in fact. Couponers clear shelves because they may have gone to the store 4 or 5 times and the items were gone.
When they finally find some ,their coupons are near the expiration date ,so they take whats there. Real couponers know that people that have a lot of coupons to fill either have bought multiple papers, have multiple computers ,or have purchased coupons. Couponing is a blast ,but when non couponers or alleged moderate couponers are sleeping or having fun ,we extremes are scanning the sites ,clipping or making trips to the stores.
People that cry about mt shelves should direct their attention to the maufacturers and the stores for their inability to meet customer demand. People are suffering and couponing is a survival technique. Sorry us newbies have inconvenienced you. See you in the mt isles.
Most manufacturers clearly state at the bottom of their coupons items purchased with coupon are not for resale. A lot of our extreme couponers are defrauding both manufacturers and retailers. Costing people their jobs and raising the costs on everyone else.
Also, many companys are now starting to partner with manufacturers and IRS to put an end to this and to track down the big defrauders. If you are making money and not reporting the income on your IRS statement — lookout! Well, our company is working with the police, manufacturer and District attorneys to prosecute these people for fraud. Be productive and stop trying to scam!!!!
Teaming with the IRS? What misinformed no it all told you this? Please, next time you see a stockpile sale hurry and call the IRS and tell on them. Then listen as the agents laugh at you behind their hands. Taxes are based on profit, and because coupons are considered legal tender there is very rarely any profit.
