    Just had a look at e-Bay. Amazing how many are 'selling' coupon codes available anywhere on the net. One guy is charging $7.50 shipping! LOL
    Looking under 'completed auctions' dont see a of lot suckers who bit though....
    I'm also seeing listings for items that aren't being 'sold' by the lister. Just have an affiliate banner. Cheap way to adv....35c a week.
    Thought this was against ebay TOS.

    I'll get Charlie to work on a coupon bot to troll the PPCSE Ads for coupons with direct links to merchants. Design a script with a PPCSE click cheat and 1x1 pixel popunder to display the Adword Ads and drain some PPCSE budgets into my pocket.

    Ah but I wonder how many saw the auction and clicked a tagged link through to Dell, you don't need to make the coupon sale to get a person tagged up for commission...

    Cheers

    eBay frowns on this as well.
