Yes, it would be great to have bulk editing functionality. We use Living Social and Groupon, which results in having many THOUSANDS of identical coupons in the system (identical except for the coupon code). If you need to do even a simple edit on those coupons (like changing the description so that you can see which set of coupons go with a single campaign, or changing the expiration date, or fixing a mistake where you accidentally import them as a product discount instead of a cart discount), it's impossible to do.
I use Smart Manager Pro to make these kinds of changes. Unfortunately, their coupon editor is buggy (I've "helped" them multiple bugs) and some fields are impossible to edit in bulk (like the expiration date field which has a datepicker attached, requiring you to use a mouse to pick the date on every individual record), and they don't have "batch edit" capability on coupons.
BUT even Smart Manager is better than editing coupons one by one. I'd LOVE to see batch edit capability in the Coupon Editor built into WooCommerce!
