Interesting post.

The only possible advantage I can see to these is getting yourself known but the entire concept doesn't look like it benefits the artist, just the coupon company.

more discussion here

people are asking for discounts on what is already underpriced.
This is on any artisan product, value and worth are words much mis-used.
I wouldn't go near any discount vouchers on etsy, buying or selling

We need to re-educate but how can we do this without patronising?

finding we artisans need to do much more educating. The other thing that folks need to know, for every dollar spent on a local craftsmen that dollar will likely be spent in the same community. We must do more to educate the public............ on top of making work, doing the accounting, advertising and selling of the wares. Not a career for lightweights!
