Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted February 7, 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 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.

    Steph - I hope you are feeling better soon!

  • stephkenner Feb 7, 2012

    Thanks, Faye! Jess, I won't be there tonight either. I've been sick since Fri.

  • Trickat Feb 7, 2012

    I'm going to miss the Fuquay swap tonight - have fun without me!

  • carelesswhisper Feb 7, 2012

    I hope to make it to a swap one of these days...

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 7, 2012

    Please excuse the double posts - the comment system was running slow so I thought the first comment did not go through so I posted it again.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 7, 2012

    blstalin - I am sorry you missed the posts from the previous 4 weeks with the info about the swap this morning. I post the upcoming swaps every week and the one in the 40/42 area today has been on that list for weeks now. Hopefully you can make it to the swap next month. The 40/42 and Fuquay swaps are every month (as are most of the swaps). Next Tuesday, I will post the info for the March swap in the 40/42 area.

    You can also check the link in the box above for the Triangle Area swaps. Most are listed here, but it give you another resource for swaps. Hope that helps.

    blstalin - Actually I have been posting the info about the swap this morning for the last 4 weeks every Tuesday when I post upcoming swaps. :-) Sorry you missed all the previous posts. Hopefully you can make it to the swap next month. The 40/42 and Fuquay swaps are every month (as are most of the swaps). Next Tuesday, I will post the info for the March swap in the 40/42 area.

    Faye posted these dates of upcoming swaps back on January 31st here on SmartShopper, so today was not the first time she posted about these.
