Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted September 20, 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!

    Nancy -- are you in Fuquay? I have a ton of coupons that I would love to give to someone to take to the swap. I can't swap since I am a single parent during the week but would love to share these coupons with someone that could use them.

    Yea Rayne :) swmbo, not a problem at all, I'm loving that there are so many swaps starting up and people will be able to 'roost' at one close to them, it's a wonderful thing!!!!

    Nancy, I just used your link to post a message about starting a Durham swap. I however can't find the group you told me about at the last swap. Can you post a link to the group for me please? Thank you so much.

    Thanks, Nancy! I appreciate all you do!!

  • Nancy Sep 20, 2011

    Anyone in the Durham area, there are some people interested in getting together to form a regular swap, please check it out and let them know you're interested too!

    You can post back and forth on this thread and work out location/details. Pretty soon there will be nearby swaps ALL over the area!
