Durham Coupon Swap

Time: 7:00-8:00 p.m.

Location: Durham County Library - Southwest Regional (3605 Shannon Road, Durham, North Carolina 27707, 919-560-8590)

We have a study room reserved for our group. Inquire at the Information Desk when you arrive and they will let you know which room we are in.

Please bring non-expired coupons you do not want or need in an envelope or baggie; preferably already clipped, but still OK if not clipped.

You may also bring coupons that have already expired in a separate bag or envelope so they may be donated to the military.

 

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.

    We just had a coupon class and learned and have started practicing this. We are from Durham. I want to do a monthly swap. Going to attend the North Raleigh swap this weekend and definitely the Durham Swap. I have a group of folks in a private group on FB; May want to combine with the Durham Swap...this is GREAT

    Thanks for the info on the Wilson swap. Unfortunatley, I am one of those that works during the day. I would need a evening or weekend one.

  • cassandrastr Feb 21, 2012

    The Wilson Mall just started doing a coupon swap. The next one is tomorrow, Wednesday Feb. 22 from 11-1. I haven't been but one of these days I'll make it! :)

  • couponkim01 Feb 21, 2012

    Does anyone know of any coupon swaps that are held in the Wilson/Rocky Mount area?

  • Oxymoron02 Feb 21, 2012

    This list gets longer and longer every time you post it. *does a happy dance*

    Now what I need is for the March Coupocalypse (my sister has been mailing me large boxes of Qs monthly) to arrive BEFORE the swap, not 2 days after.
