While this isn’t travel related perse, it will very much be a deal related post and might help you snag those deal-a-day purchases you missed out on or get rid of the ones you purchased on a whim and have no usage for!
My mom called me two days ago letting me know that she purchased 4 roundtrip ferry tickets to Nantucket. She buys these Groupon and LivingSocial purchases ALL THE TIME, maybe too many times. She sees the word deal and goes full forth. She is their prime target. Those who just buy without a real purpose. I guess the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree! While she uses 99% of the deals purchased, these ferry vouchers will most likely not be used. She asked me to re-sell on Craigslist. I am personally not the biggest Craigslist fan as you can get a ton of scam.
After a quick Google search, I found a website called CoupRecoup. It is a resale place for Groupon-like purchases. It is super easy to use and for a 3% fee, you’ll get paid via payal (or you can do it for free, but it requires some work on your end). You can also purchase past Groupon-like vouchers that you missed out on. Some even sell their voucher for less than what they paid just to recoup some of the loss.
Since I speak about these deal-a-day sites often, I wanted to let you all know about this 2nd hand market site. Oh and if anyone has a trip to Nantucket and wants to purchase ferry tickets, let me know. Yes, shameless plug for helping out my mom.
Note to Readers: Those who subscribed to my “Act Now” text message alerts might have received this LivingSocial re-sale post this past Saturday via text message. This was supposed to be sent out via my normal Deals We Like Twitter account NOT my DWL_Alert Twitter account. This was a mistake on my side as I am not used to managing two Twitter accounts, so I sincerely apologize. Please accept my apology and I will not be abusing this service I put in place. I hope you understand (and forgive me!!!). Thanks!
