    While I'm only an occasional trader, IMO, this coupon isn't conducive to setting a trading guideline because the value can vary significantly depending on how an individual is or isn't able to use them.

    In my case, they'd have minimal or no value for me to take them in a trade. I have some, but even if I didn't, I've only been able to use one coupon, and the store would only treat it as an FPC (no overage). And since I seldom use any sauce mixes, even if I could easily use the coupons like FPCs, I'd basically be trading in order to give the packets to family, friends and the food bank. I do those things, but the idea of trading for things I know I'm going to give and donate isn't particularly appealing.

    If I did or would use the sauces, the value I'd put on each coupon would depend on the amount I'd save compared to how much I'd normally pay, plus overage if any. This would apply to as many coupons as I'd use to reach the point where I'd be fully stocked up. So for those coupons I'd use to get packets for personal use, each coupon's value would be the full $5. Beyond that though, the value would drop because I'd be giving or donating the additional products. So, if my maximum stock-up is 20, I'd put a value of $5 each on the first 10 coupons, but a lower value on any additional ones.

    If I were able to get say $2 overage per coupon, their value to me would be $2 each even if I valued the packets at $0 because they would be for giving or donating. So, while I would expect to come out ahead by enough to justify trading in the first place, I'd have no qualms offering a decent portion of the $2, including out of pocket via gift cards or stamps as long as I'd still come out reasonably ahead.

    So in summary, it doesn't look very feasible to look for a trading guideline when, depending on a person's specific situation, the value per coupon can be anywhere from $0 to $5, and every coupon won't necessarily carry the same value even to the same person.

    They are a regular tearpad IMO and should be traded as such.

    I see your question was answered, and I know what the "official" trade rate is, but it still seems to me the value of the FPC isn't a fixed amount for everyone. In my area for example, the regular price for Proplan is about $18, not the stated max. of $22, so the full face value of the FPC is the former, not the latter.

    The 'value' of HV and FPC would be what SCers would pay for the product considering cents off coupons they would usually use and sale prices NOT max value on coupon or how expensive you can find it for to prove value.
    What constitutes a Free Product Coupon (FPC)
    : FPCs should be only those coupons that are completely free. HV coupons which allow you to get something free on the occasions it goes on sale that low are not FPCs (the sale may not come up before expiry, it includes tax etc)
    What constitutes a High Value coupon (HV)
    : HV coupons are those where you can get the product free on a great sale or 75% off the regular price. Users may also consider very rare/hard to get coupons as HV (like the $1 valid on Heinz Ketchup for example).

    Then you shouldve said you value the olymel at 6.99 because thats what you value them at. Its up to yourself to stick up for your end of the trade.

    Well you cant change that thats their choice . Theres a guideline which is fair but doesnt mean everyone will follow it. If someone starts making a unfair trade i just dont trade with them.

    Not sure about the Olymel coupons but the Chapman $4 is worth $4. And a FPC for a product you can buy for $2.99 is worth $2.99. I think they are 2 different type of coupons.
