Upcoming coupon swaps: share and save!

Posted November 6, 2012

 

There are a number of blog members who swap coupons here in the Triangle area. This is the 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 swaps scheduled through December, feel free to post them in the comments section below and I will add them to the main list.  It helps if you can post your swap more than a week before the swap date. Happy swapping!

 We have a new swap in Middlesex. Welcome to the list Middlesex couponers!

North Raleigh Coupon Swap

Date: Saturday, December 3rd

Time: 3 pm

Location: Moes at Triangle Towne Center


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.

If your swap is less than a week away and you would like it to appear on this swap post, please send me an e-mail to saving@smartspendingresources.com with the information to make sure I see it in time to post your swap.

    I cannot attend the swaps, but I do have a fair bit of coupons left over from Sunday's paper. If you'd like them, email me at craigslist_cary@earthlink.net. First person to include their address gets them; I'll send tomorrow.

    irishgirlsarepretty:Why are so many of the swaps during the day?
    Lots of places are too busy in the evenings to let swappers take up space that could be used by paying customers or they have other activities going on. Lots of family and church activities take place in the evenings and so far not many people have been able to get an evening one going.

    You're right Libby. It is the 1st. I wasn't thinking when I sent the info to Faye. Faye, can you please fix it for me? Thanks!

    Should the North Raleigh swap be December 1? December 3 is a Monday.
