Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted January 10, 2012

 

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.

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.

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, February 8, 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.
