Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted December 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!  See below for details on how to host a swap and what to do if you are planning to attend a swap. Thanks to all the folks who came out for the Garner swap last week!

If you have any other swaps scheduled in January, feel free to post them in the comments section below and I will add them to the main list.

Knightdale Coupon Swap

North Raleigh Coupon Swap

Southeast Regional Library in Garner

The 2012 coupon swaps at the Southeast Regional Library in Garner will be held on the 2nd Wednesday of each month at 1pm. The first swap is scheduled for January 11th.

Date: Wednesday January 11, 2012

Time: 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Location: 908 7th Ave, Garner

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

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.

    Hello, just wanted to see if anyone wanted to do a coupon swap who missed the past coupon swap. Just wanted to see if there's an interest out there and anyone willing for one in Durham, North Raleigh, Cary or even in Chapel Hill

    oops, ,make that the 18th and 24th of December, no coupon inserts - except the possibility of P&G on the 25th.

    But on Jan 1 there should be a Red Plum, none other listed for that date though either :(

  • heremeaj Dec 14, 2011

    Nancy, you are right AS USUAL, did not even think of that

  • Nancy Dec 14, 2011

    heremeaj - there won't be any inserts the last two Sundays of this month though, so another swap may not be as worthwhile as normal :(

  • heremeaj Dec 14, 2011

    cfradeburn, I would love another swap before Christmas as well, or at least before SD (still perhaps coming the first week of Jan.?) Would travel to any of the areas you listed if several people are interested

  • cfradeburn Dec 14, 2011

    Is there another coupon swap before January 14th. i ASKED THIS QUESTION BEFORE AND DID NOT SEE LAST NIGHT'S SWAP I Knightdale. I couldn't make it to this weekend's swap and I was hoping for another one before Xmas. Any takers? Durham? North Raleigh? Cary? Chapel Hill?

  • quemaster Dec 13, 2011

    Faye, one of the basics I'd add is that you bring scissors with you to the swap! Sometimes people bring the flyers un-cut and they have to be cut. Bringing your coupon book is always a good idea, too. But then, we aren't supposed to leave home without it!

    Thanks, swmbo - just added the swap for tonight. Have fun!
