Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted August 23, 2011

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons every month and now you have an official place to post your swap details each week!


If you are attending a coupon swap for the first time, here are some swap basics:

  • Bring your coupons already cut out in an envelope.
  • You don't need to sort them by product type unless you really want to
  • The group usually site in a circle and passes around the envelopes to the person to the right. Take the coupons you want out and put the rest back in to pass on to the next person.
  • Once you get your envelope back, you know you have been through all the coupons.
  • In really large groups, usually folks sit in groups of 5 to 8 people to swap

If you are hosting a swap and wish to include the info here, please include the following details:

  • Date of swap
  • Time of swap
  • Location of swap including address
  • Host contact info to rsvp or ask questions. An e-mail address is fine - I don't suggest including your phone number on a public board. You may want to create a new free e-mail just for swapping from somewhere like Yahoo or Gmail.

I know of the following swaps in the next month. I have been to a swap twice with Nancy's coupon swap group and had a great time with some fabulous ladies! I will probably be at the Sept 13th swap in the 40/42 area as well.

    Thanks to all the nice ladies at Moe's on Saturday. My wife enjoyed the swap, the chatting and how nice everyone was! She came back with LOTS of coupons, too! Thanks so much for sharing. We are already starting on our share stack for next time! I hope I can join next time.

    Will you have any night time swaps at 40/42? I work during the day so I cannot do the swap during the day.

    Go here for expired coupons info:

    Basically, our troops overseas can use expired coupons for up to 6 months after expiration on the base commissaries. Through the site above you can adopt a base and send coupons every month. If you know military folks who are overseas, see if they can use your expired q's and send directly to them.

    Our stateside military cannot use the expired coupons here in the US.

  • Bklyn2Raleigh Aug 24, 2011

    I have a very nice surprise for all the folks who attend the Clayon and FV swaps :) Not just free inserts I gather (hoping to score this week on the Red Plums at the apartment waste bin at the mail kiosk) but something really sweet you'll all enjoy (it's a rebate form)

    Love sharing!!!!
