Garner Swap hosted by Chick-fil-A!

The Chick-fil-A in Garner at The White Oak Shopping Center has offered to host a coupon swap in December! They are going to provide some samples of their breakfast foods as well as a couple giveaways including the 2012 Chick-fil-A calendar filled with lots of FREE product coupons! I'll be there with Nancy and we plan to have a ton of fun (and share a ton of coupons)!

Date: Thursday, December 8

Time: 9:30 - 10:30ish

Location: Chick-fil-A, White Oak Shopping Center on Hwy 70 and I-40, Garner

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.

I also recommend the local swap group, Triangle Area Coupon Swap  with addition coupon swap information.

    So bummed that there is finally a swap a couple miles from me (Cary) and we will be at the fair! Knew we should have gone last weekend...darn soccer!

  • Nancy Oct 18, 2011

    steph!!!! Would love to see you there! It's always fun when you're surrounded by like minds, where talking about deals doesn't get that 'glazed over eyes' look in return LOL

  • stephlw Oct 18, 2011

    I may be making the trek for that Garner swap! How fun does that sound! :)

  • Nancy Oct 18, 2011

    Good, then she's had her fair warning LOL At Wendy's the managers (General Mgr and assistants) have told me repeatedly that they love us being there, even though I expressed GREAT concern we were taking over their dining area with so many people. He explained it to me "It generates interest in what's happening at Wendy's and we love having you all here".

    How great is that!

    I warned Kim, the Marketing Director, that it could get a little crazy and she was really excited about it! What a hoot!

  • Nancy Oct 18, 2011

    I can't help but think Chick Fil A won't be ready for the crowd that will show up Faye :) Our Clayton group is planning on shifting to that location in December and the activity level will be high and fun! Hopefully new faces will join us?! The more the merrier!

    Time to put on our Faye's Brigade name tags :)
