Garner Coupon Swap hosted by BJ's

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.

    Thanks vlynn - maybe I will get it right for September since I put when it occurs each month in the post above. LOL...maybe... You'll have to make sure I get the dates and times right each month though. :-)

    Hey Faye, there has been some calendar problems in the yahoo coupon group. I think it is some type of display problem with the time. Yahoo is aware of the problem and is working on a fix. However, until they get a permanent fix in place, the calendar time's may display incorrectly. I actually think the correct time is stored, but some kind of calculation error causes the wrong time to be displayed periodically.

    Thanks i heart coupons - I will post it now! :-)

    Thanks vlynn - I left it out because the calendar on the yahoo group has it listed as starting at 8 pm I think and I knew it wasn't right. I had planned to call the library today to confirm. Thanks for saving me the time! :-)

    Hey Faye, you left out the Garner coupon swap at the Southeastern Regional Library in Garner. It is always on the 2nd Wednesday of each month. The August one is on August 8th at 1pm
