Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted September 6, 2011
Updated September 13, 2011

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons every month and here is the 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 information here, please post 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.

Here are the swaps that are currently scheduled. I have been to a few swaps with Nancy's coupon swap group and had a great time with some fabulous ladies! I will also be at the Sept 13th swap in the 40/42 area as well.

    Nancy- Tonight's a no go- The dog had some unexpected surgery yesterday and I can't risk leaving him b/c of his stitches and upset tummy :(
    Have fun and I'll hope to make the next one!

    There is definitely not a limit on how many coupons you can share! I have a huge envelope of coupons from Linda to share as well! See you later this morning.

    I am looking forward to my first ever coupon swap. I am planning on the 40/42 location.

    I was wondering if there is a limit to how many coupons we can bring? I have a large manila envelope, & will be getting more coupons this weekend.
