    * To avoid reverse auctions once a WTB ad has been posted no further ads for the same item will be allowed until the first ad has been removed.
    * Additionally, if you are interested in an item, please contact the buyer via PM with your offer.

    No Commercial Posts in
    * Forum Posts
    * Signatures
    * Commercial Websites in Member Profiles
    * Business Names for login

    CoffeeSnobs has a policy of no commercial postings unless authorised by the admin team. *Plugging your business (however subtle) will result in your account being blocked or removed without warning or notification.

    Links to ebay and gumtree ads or other similar off-site promotion to any sales related material are not welcome on CoffeeSnobs. If you would like to be included in the “Official Site Sponsor” list please use the "Contact Us" at the bottom of any page.

    If the item posted is priced substantially over RRP and we think you are just trying to profit from the CoffeeSnobs community we'll lock the post and lock your account, no questions asked. Facebook, Gumtree, Ebay exist to sell stuff to strangers at whatever price you choose, CoffeeSnobs For Sale is for our community to offer items to each other at a fair and reasonable price.

    As always on the CoffeeSnobs forums we will exercise our right to delete first and maybe ask questions later.

    We have had these rules in place for more than 14 years now and they have kept the free "for sale" area pretty good with near no spammers, scammers and people pimping their auction site sales.

    This is a trusted resource for the members of the CoffeeSnobs community.

    If you can't post a for sale add in this section, please read the rules again.
