As I’ve previously posted, I’m a BIG fan of the ‘daily deal’ sites that are cropping up everywhere. But I’d be lying if I didn’t admit that I’ve either allowed a deadline to sneak past me (was I really going to start Pilates) or stressed myself out / spent more than necessary making sure I used it no matter what!
Deals Go Round is a new site that allows those of us suffering from buyer’s remorse a chance to unload that coupon that you’re never going to use. USA Today reports that if a coupon is popular enough, sellers may even be able to fetch a small profit. Because daily deal sites offer such steep discounts, sellers can list their coupons for more than they paid and still offer a bargain. For buyers, resale sites offer access to deals that are no longer available.
In other cases, sellers may have to ask for less than they paid. This usually happens when a coupon’s expiration date is fast approaching or if the retailer or service is too obscure.
The worst case scenario is that sellers never find a buyer; DealsGoRound says that happens with about a third of its listings.
