In 2016, 307 billion coupons were distributed throughout the United States. Of these, around two billion were redeemed by consumers.
The couponing trend continues, but with technology at our fingertips, more and more shoppers receive and redeem promo codes digitally.
If you’re thinking about making money with coupons, there are a few strategies you can implement. Though reselling and transferring coupons can be illegal, you can still make money finding, clipping, and printing them for other people as a service or use share-a-sale affiliate marketing methods online.
Here are 5 easy ways to sell coupons the legal way and make some money on the side.
In This Post:
1. Clip Coupons
Selling coupons for a profit online or offline may be illegal, but finding and clipping coupons for other people as a service isn’t and can help you make money.
Your main customers are people who love bargains but don’t have the time to sit down and clip and organize their coupons. You can charge an hourly fee if the customer needs a lot of coupons or a weekly fee based on their shopping habits.
2. Print Coupons
One of the best and easiest ways to make money couponing is to print them using specialized websites. All you need is a good printer and a few minutes of your day.
Websites like Sunshine Rewards offer money for each day you print their coupons, and the website Coupons.com offers coupons with cash back. On some websites, you can collect points by printing and redeeming them with your next purchase.
3. Hunt For The Best Coupons
Do you know someone who loves shopping sales, but doesn’t have time to hunt for deals and coupons? Offer to scour the internet and newspapers to find the best discounts for them.
This is a great side gig if you know where to look and once you learn where the best coupons are, you can snag some pretty sweet deals for yourself as well.
4. Try Affiliate Marketing
Since selling coupons may get you into legal trouble, the next best (legal) thing is affiliate marketing.
If you have a website or a blog, you can join a few affiliate programs and make a commission each time someone buys something through your links. Companies often give bloggers special promo codes for their audience to use.
5. Start A Couponing Website
Another legitimate way to make money with coupons is to start a couponing website. Your job will be finding the best deals online and publishing them on your website as they come up.
There are websites that will pay to share their coupons with your audience and offer commissions for each sale you’ve generated from those coupons. This way, you can share and earn money off your website for years to come.
