Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted April 17, 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 April or May, feel free to post them in the comments section below and I will add them to the main list.

2) Your expired coupons for military overseas (preferably clipped but if not, no problem!)
3) Your Boxtops for Education and Labels for Education - if you don't already have someone to donate these too, we'll gladly take them for our schools. Any donated at the swap will be divided among those at the swap who would like them.

Durham Coupon Swap

Date: Thursday May 24, 2012

Location: Durham County Library, Southwest Regional location,  3605 Shannon Road,  Durham, NC 27707

Phone: 919- 560-8590

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.

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 meeting in for the evening.


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 additional coupon swap information.

    Thanks vlynn!

    I've set the dates in the calendar in the Triangle coupon swap group for the May and June swaps at the Bojangles I-40 Exit 312. They are Tuesday, May 15th, at 10:30am and Tuesday, June 12th at 10:30am. Maybe someone else can handle the evening FV ones?

  • Nanee Lion Apr 17, 2012

    What happened to the 40-42 swap we have been having at Bogangles?

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Apr 17, 2012

    Have fun on your adventures Nancy! We look forward to getting you back in July! :-)

  • Nancy Apr 17, 2012

    hhhmmm, post didn't post .... I'll try again.

    For the May and June FV swap dates and the Clayton Bojangles May swaps, I have not set the calendar on the yahoo group site since I won't be here for either. My daughter is moving to Houston in early May and I'm headed for the annual trip to northern NY in June!

    If someone who attends would like to set the calendar dates for those swaps on the group site, that would be good :)

    Same goes for June swaps at those locations, I will be out of town.

    Daughter is moving to Houston in May and my annual trip to NY is in June!
