Question ID: 785483
I received a coupon in the mail that is worth 15% off from my next
purchase at a store. The coupon encourages me to give it to a friend
or family member. Is it legal for me to sell this coupon on Ebay? The
coupon only says that it has no cash value.

Hello mark27708-ga,

Yes, it is legal for you to sell the coupon. 

There are currently thousands and thousands of coupons for sale on eBay.

The problem you will probably run into is finding a buyer. Coupons
generally sell for less than they are worth. A 15% off coupon's value
would depend on how rare coupons for that store are, and connecting
with a buyer who is planning on making a large purchase.

eBay is the quickest and best place to sell your coupon. After listing
it on eBay, you might want to find some online forums that deal with
the store and advertise the coupon there (make sure that it is ok to
do so, some forums will not allow this).

I hope that this answers the question to your satisfaction. Please let
me know if you require further information and I will do my best to
further assist you.

All the best,
