Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted July 3, 2012

 

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons here in the Triangle area and here is the official place to post your swap dates and locations 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 through August, feel free to post them in the comments section below and I will add them to the main list.

You may also bring expired coupons, in another envelope or baggie, already clipped, which will be donated to the military.

 

North Raleigh Swap

Date: Saturday, July 28

Time: 3:00 PM - 4:00 PM

Location: Moe's at Triangle Towne Center, Raleigh, NC (Moes is near Barnes & Noble & Charming Charlie.)

 

Garner Coupon Swap hosted by BJ's

Date: Monday August 27th

Time: 1:00 pm

Location: BJ's in Garner at White Oak Shopping Center

They will be held the 4th Monday of every month at 1pm. BJ's will provide light refreshments.
 

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 if at all possible. It really helps to move the swap along if folks are not waiting for you to go through your coupons and cut them out at the table.
* You don't need to sort them by product type unless you really want to
* The group usually sits 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, couponers often 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.
