    Exclamation Need Help With Coupon Swap Site....

    Why do I do these things to myself....

    Why do I constantly open my big yap & get myself in over my head....

    I'm a FreeCycle member for El Paso/Las Cruces....the other day, someone said, "hey - how about if we swap coupons," and of course being the oh-but-no-let's-stick-to-the-rules type ( ) said, "well, this isn't the forum for it, we'd need another group for local coupon swaps...."

    And now I'm the "leader"

    And here I am begging for help!!

    We're swapping local grocer's coupons, local restaurants, etc....

    I know there should be some type of rules established up front to make for nicer trades, etc....

    So - what are these rules?!

    Surely someone must know of them!!

    I can't believe I've opend my mouth yet again & gotten myself into this!!

    Any ideas will be greatly appreciated....

    Like I said, it's all local stuff, but I'm sure guidelines would help keep things on track!

    Thanks All!

    To swap via the Refund Express magazine, they have you send all your coupons in one category (ie: health, pets, frozen, etc) to a coordinator, who in turn sends you back the same number of coupons. You provide a wish list and they try to match it. That might be wwwwaaaayyyy too much work, though, IMHO!

    I'm sure you know how Karen has our coupon swap set-up here at the Village-- each person gets a name to send to, and there are just guidelines on what to send: 20 or so coupons plus a bonus "freebie" such as a pack of popcorn or other little surprise.

    Good luck!

    I belong to a coupon group on Yahoo, http://finance.groups.yahoo.com/grou...coupon_group/. You can post your ISOs and everyone has to send out 4 required coupon envies a month. All the wishlists are posted on the group site. It might be easier to coordinate a get together once a month where everyone can bring their coupons to swap, of course that would be more difficult for mothers of small children. We have a local coupon group that does this, and I just don't have enough energy to take a 1 and a 2 year old. Lmk if I can help.
