    Before you start spewing hatred on me for being ridiculous let me just say that i have made ?440 the past weeks doing this. While it wont make you rich it will put cash in your pocket and can be upscaled. If this has already been posted then please forgive me for pulluting the forum :)

    How?
    I have a smartphone and a few months back i downloaded the Groupon app to see what it was about. What struck me is that they really often have these insanely cheap offers for all kinds of useful gadgets/items. So i thought lets see if it was re-sellable and ordered some of this stuff, smaller items initially like multi functional remote control etc but it sold for profit so i decided to go bigger and this is what i did:

    * A set of winter tires (?85) - Re-sold for: ?185
    * An electric guitar (?75) - Re-sold for: ?125
    * Easy Slim weight loss package (?30) - Re-sold for: ?70
    * Teeth whitening package (?40) - Re-sold for ?90

    On these 4 items alone i made a net profit of ?240 together with the smaller stuff and a branded watch i bought and re-sold minus shipping the net profit so far turns out to be ?440ish.

    It might work for you, it might not but it sure is worth the try since it sells like hot cookies!

    haha lol I didn't know anybody else knew about this. Can't get more simple than this. I used to do this to have some kind of an offline job.. You get to meet some people and make a little money on the side. Nice share bro

    I have not heard of this before but it makes perfect sense, thanks for sharing. Do you sell the stuff locally or through ebay?

    What I did was just sell it locally.. Use craigslist or something similar. Just ty to keep it as simple as possible. That's what I did anyway but maybe op knows something better :)

    Not ebay because with the USD conversion rate being so low i could only see myself lose from it or not gain enough profit. Instead i sold it through a local marketplace and believe it or not people actually got a good deal despite me making profit off of them. Groupon is the sh*t. One thing i forgot to mention is that i ordered this robotic vacum cleaner for like €85 and sold it for €210 the other day. There is definitley a big profit to be made here with relatively minor effort. I have some ideas as to how to upscale this but that will be shared at a later date :)

    Oh yeah, groupon is big in Europe if thats what you mean. Heck i can even select offers on my local level just by switching on the GPS on my smartphone.
