You might want to go back and read the terms and conditions that you signed up for when joining AFF. This question has also been asked in the last week or so - assuming a loophole or method of trading/selling has been closed so those doing it are looking for other avenues.

Flyertalk does not even currently have a coupon connection, a good example of why maybe its more work that its worth.

What happened? Too much abuse?
It's being review,but basically what began a swap meet for minor things like hotel drink vouchers became a forum for brokers trying to profit from others and high value items being for effective sale - some offering their 8 AA SWU's for example for significant compensations.

I saw post implying some had multiple ID's and were very good at gaining items of value for little and on trading them under different identities to other for much more. That is not the philosophy that was envisaged.

Shortly before it's removal AA had began to actively cancelling the AAdvantage accounts of members it traced to coupon connection trading. Several had been pinged.

There is come comment here: Account audit / fraud issues - Busted selling miles / SWU / VIP, etc (consolidated) - Page 32 - FlyerTalk Forums

That's not good at all.

From memory that has also happened on AFF where someone was given something for free and then sold it for profit.
