Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted November 1, 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!  See below for details on how to host a swap and what to do if you are planning to attend a swap.

Southeast Regional Library

November swaps: Monday, November 7th at 7 pm & Saturday, November 19th at 3 pm

For more information, call 662-2258. The address of the library is 908 7th Avenue, Garner, NC 27529

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.

    Nancy, do you plan to bring the donations from the swap to Clayton Area Ministries. My husband said he could meet you after the swap and bring them back to CAM if you would like him to. I have an appointment and cannot attend. I'll miss you guys - had so much fun last month.

    bparrish004 - Yes we do coupons for troops at the Knightdale swap.

  • Nancy Nov 1, 2011

    The Clayton and Fuquay Varina swaps have found places to provide donations to of items for a food bank! So if you plan to attend either of those, please bring one item (more if you so desire!!) to collect so our designated person can donate them for us.

    This will be an ongoing venture. With super doubles this week, I'm sure we'll have something we can donate and feel good about :)


  • bparrish004 Nov 1, 2011

    Oops - Sorry computer trainer - just saw your post as I posted mine. See you there!
