I would love it if those who are new to our trains could check this out before they sign up for the coupon trains. It may be run differently than others you have boarded.

Thanks!

First envelope will be mailed to your partner (hopefully) by the first Tuesday of the month. Each week you will send another envelope to that person.

1. Please only sign up if you can commit to an envelope each week.

2. Send between 30-40 coupons each week

3. Try to give coupons dated at least two weeks out, to allow your partner time to use them

4. Try to work as best you can off your partner's wish list (I will try to pair opposites) (wish lists will be posted in the sign up thread)

5. PM me with your address

6. Post your wish list in this thread. Include whether or not Internet printables are ok, stores you shop at can be helpful as well. Also, you can post what you absolutely have no use for.

7. If your coupon needs change, I'm sure your partner wouldn't mind a PM to let them know!



I generally will post a sign up about a week before the next mmonth starts! Just keep an eye out for it!

:grwave:

Thanks everyone!

Ok some coupon newbie questions please :)

Do we just mail to one person, our partner?
Or do the coupons keep going to more people as well?

If I want to base coupons off each weeks sales,
then the coupon train wont arrive in time for that right?
( For example....I used last Sundays coupons mixed with this weeks sales etc..?)

What if the coupons we have are not on their wish list?
Do we mail anyways because I would mail a lot and pay extra postage?

If the train doesnt work for my needs, do you all know of a place I can dontate my extra coupons in a town?
My kids schools dont have parents that need them?

Do libraries have coupon boxes?
Thanks!!!!!!!!

Do we just mail to one person, our partner? Yes, this is how I personally set it up. I just think it's easier this way.

You can always PM your partner with requests. This is what I do.
( For example....I used last Sundays coupons mixed with this weeks sales etc..?)

The wish lists are a guideline. I know I for one am always open to a variety.

If the train doesnt work for my needs, do you all know of a place I can dontate my extra coupons in a town?

I can certainly find somewhere for you to donate. Or you can mail them to overseas military families. They can even use expireds for 6 months!

Do libraries have coupon boxes? Some do. If your's doesn't just ask the librarian if they would be open to the idea!
Thanks!!!!!!!!
I hope that answered some of your questions!

I am ready to start another! I don't want to make the train(s) too large or it feels like you're waiting for-EVER for them to get to you! I just loved the coupon trains.
