Here is the sign up for the December coupon swap if you are interested. Please note that each member who takes part must have a minimum of 25 posts. Also, if you don’t keep your commitment once you have signed up for the coupon swap, then you will not be allowed to take part in future swaps until your commitment has been met. We want the swaps to be fun for everyone involved and for everyone to send and receive her swap.

We will be swapping an envelope of coupons (at least 25 coupons). If you have rebate forms and would like to include a few with your swap, that would be fine. I know some people have a lot of forms and some people don't have any access to forms, so forms are optional.

Also, please don't include internet coupons that you have printed from your computer unless your swap partner specifically asks for them as a lot of stores will not accept internet coupons.

As for expiration dates, let's try to send coupons with expiration dates of 30 days out or later. For example, December swap coupons should have an expiration date at the end of January or later. (If you have a really good coupon that you know your partner could use right away with a shorter expiration date, that would be an exception.) But, for the majority of coupons, let's aim for the 30 days. That will give us plenty of time to be able to use the coupons once we receive them.

When you sign up, please include info, such as if you have stores that double or triple. Also, provide a short list of specific items you may be looking for and anything you may not be able to use, (such as no pet, no baby). This will give your swap partner some ideas of what to send you. Remember as well that there are no guarantees that you will receive items from your wishlist as your partner may not have any coupons from your list to send to you.

Please sign up to this thread if interested. I'll keep sign up open until Friday, December 8th.

Please let me know if you have any questions.
