Upcoming coupon swaps

Posted February 19, 2013

Coupon swap in December 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 March, 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 details more than a week before the swap date. Happy swapping!

FEBRUARY 2013 SWAPS

Cary McDonalds Coupon Swap hosted by McDonald's

Date: February 21, 2013 (occurs on the third Thursday of every month)

Time: 9:30 am

Location: 1830 Walnut Street in Cary (the March swap will take place at 1299 Kildaire Farm Road. See below for more details)

Durham Coupon Swap

Date: Thursday, February 21, 2013 (3rd Thursday of each month)

Time: 7:00-8:45 p.m.

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

We have a large meeting room reserved for our group, so feel free to invite your friends, family, neighbors, co-workers, or anyone interested in exchanging coupons! If there is no notice posted in the library entrance area, inquire at the Information Desk when you arrive and they will let you know which meeting room we are in for the evening.

Please bring non-expired coupons you do not want or need in an envelope or baggie; it's best if they are already clipped.

You may also bring coupons that have already expired, again preferably already cut out of the inserts, in a separate bag or envelope so they may be donated to the military.

Update for Durham group: For the first 3 months of 2013, the Durham group will be meeting in a smaller room but still at the same library, due to other programs requiring the larger room on our regularly scheduled third Thursday evening of each month:

January - the children’s programming room

February - Study room #2

March – Study room #2

April- back to the large meeting room

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. Thanks!

    Hey Faye, you left out the March swap at the Southeast Regional Library in Garner. It's always the 2nd Wednesday of the month at 1pm. It's March 13th.

  • Blue Devil Woman Feb 19, 2013

    The coupon swap at the Benson Pentecostal church is tonight at 6:30.

  • Blue Devil Woman Feb 19, 2013

    Thanks Faye. I have sent and email and will let you and mispuddin know what he says.

  • Faye Prosser - Smart Shopper Feb 19, 2013

    Blue Devil, I haven't heard from the folks at the Benson church recently but here is the contact info if you want to call Ash and ask him about the next swap. He has posted his e-mail on the blog before for any questions so I don't think he will mind my sharing it again.

    Benson Pentecostal Holiness Church at 407 E Church St. Benson NC 27504

    For more information people can contact Ashley at awjones12001@yahoo.com

    Does anyone know if there is a coupon swap at the church in Benson? I was thinking they were having one tonight but I am not sure as I forgot to write down the date last month.
