Coupon Dumpster - On how to request a Coupon
By SmittenPie and 1 collaborators
This is a guide to walk you through the process of requesting a coupon with Coupon Dumpster.
Rules and Guidelines
  • DO NOT request coupons if you have no intentions and means to purchase and activate the corresponding game to your account within the next seven days.
  • DO NOT DO NOT request more than one coupon per game for yourself, and ONLY request one if you do not own a copy of the game on any of your accounts already.
    Requests for the following will always be denied:
    • your multi/alt accounts
    • friends, family and any other associates
  • DO NOT request coupons for trading purposes or other personal profits.
  • DO NOT abuse or exploit official Steam services (e.g. Steam Refund Policy) to gain personal profits from this group.
  • DO NOT use this group for trades or to sell items.
  • DO NOT use this group to advertise any other groups or personal interests.

  • The CD Staff reserves the right to ask for proof of purchase, and any details supporting the case if necessary.
  • The CD Staff reserves the right to deny any requests, but will always provide an appropriate explanation.
  1. Set your profile and inventory settings to public until your purchase has been verified.
  2. Leave your trade url in the thread. (The trade url can be found here.)
Check the Coupon List (<Click me)
1. Type the name of the game which you are looking for. (Our example here is 'Spooky Cats')
2. Good news! Coupons for this game are in our inventory! Select "View Coupon".

(If we don't have the coupon you currently want, you'll have to check back later and be patient!)

3. Select the coupon that you would like to request for.

4. Selecting the desired coupon will direct you to this page.

On this page, the links will give you all the information needed to set up your request in our Coupon Dumpster's "Coupon Requests" Forum. A template for your request topic title and text are also given for you to fill in your Steam username and Steam trade URL.

Setting up your Request!
  • NOTE:
  • If you would like to request for multiple coupons, please only open one request per moderator. Please limit your requests to a reasonable number as there are many other members in this community.
  • Coupon Dumpster moderators can and will take action against users who are found to be abusing the system.


    Transfer the information from Nyan's Coupon List.
  • Topic Title: [Your Profile Name]-[Requested Coupon]-[Name of Coupon Holder]
  • Topic Text: Your request comment and your trade URL. (Your trade URL can be found here.)
  • After filling in all of the above, select 'Post Discussion' to post your Coupon Request to the forum.
  • DO NOT edit your Topic or Headline Text once your Coupon Request was posted. ANY additional info or updates must be posted in comment section.
Wait for it...

Lastly, select "Subscribe" next to your Request.
By subscribing, you will receive a Steam notification when a moderator leaves a comment in your thread.

...Aaand done!

If everything is in order, the corresponding Mod will send the coupon and leave a note on the thread. If there should be any problem, the Mod will leave infos as to what went wrong.

As mentioned in the rules, please make sure to purchase and activate your game within 7 days after receiving the coupon.

Thank you for reading
& happy dumpster diving!
