Top definition
n. A "can't miss" sale or exchange of goods often taken advantage of by the most frugal, cheapest person you know. A real shopportunity envolves multiple exchanges, layers, relationships, and coupons. This is sometimes mistaken for a scam, and borders on white collar crime.
Cam: "Dude, did you hear about the shopportunity that Goldenstein just scored?"

Mark: "No, what did it entail?"

Cam: "He went and bought 3 Sunday newspapers for the $60 off a glucose monitor coupon..."

Mark: "But, he's not even diabetic."

Cam: "Right, but the Walgreens in Wyoming had the glucose monitor advertized for $30, so he bought 3 of them, gaining $90 in store credit, which he used to buy 9 copies of a video game. He took those 9 copies to Game Stop, where he got $30 in store credit for each copy. He used that to get a PS3, essentially he got it for free."
