Couponning on eBay is about to get a whole lot harder!

I'm a big proponent of buying coupons and rebate forms on eBay. Some are printed regionally but sometimes its just easier to buy a crapton of candle coupons instead of buying a crapton of newspapers for one coupon.

Well eBay has been annoyed into drastically changing their coupon selling policy - effective September 1st:
  • Sellers can only sell up to a maximum of $100 value in coupons or 25 valid, unexpired, original coupons per month, whichever limit is reached first. (The 25 coupons limit includes multiple coupons purchased from a multi-quantity listing.)
  • Coupons for "free" products—including coupons where the coupon holder buys some quantity of items at one price and gets some number of items for free, for example, "buy-get-one-free" offers, or offers for free shipping—may no longer be sold on eBay.
25 coupons is nothing. If I am bothering to eBay a coupon I want at least 10 of those suckers.
