Coupon Trading

I have had lots of requests for a place to trade coupons so after much research I have found the cheapest option for me, and best option for our server.  We now have a “Southern Savers Traders” google group!

Go and check it out.  You can post coupons you want, coupons to trade, or coupons to giveaway.

Please no selling of coupons or using this group to market your own business or website.  This is just a friendly place to swap.

You will have to join the group to be able to post a trade, and any first time posts will be held for moderation (I’ll try to be quick).

This is great for:

  • areas that don’t get the full inserts
  • areas that don’t get Red Plum inserts at all
  • folks with no babies but lots of cats
  • folks with lots of babies and no cats
  • folks who just need 10 of some strange coupon
  • anyone that just can’t ever seem to find a coupon booklet

      One suggestion – for those of us that don’t cut the inserts up, if you will write which insert and the date that contains the coupon you need, I’ll know where to find them! Case in point – someone has already posted that they need Similac q’s and I know I saw one a while back in an insert but I don’t have time to hunt through the last 3 month’s worth of inserts to find it! Just a thought!

      Jenny…. girl you rock! Thanks for this… I have already replied to someone looking for Similac c’s! I don’t need them… Coupon Karma…. will come back to me!

      How do you have time for all of this! You can never quit your couponing job! Hahahha!
      Thanks for all you do!

      Thanks so much. I am still trying to get the hang of this. I cut all coupons (knowing that I don’t own a pet but if I can get cheep food why not give it away.) This is the same concept….just helping other fellow coupon junkies! It really is addictive.

    • If anyone has the $3.50 off printoff for the Purina one cat food (doesnt specify on the coupon) PLEASE email me.
      I need a bunch with my 3 cats.
      They love that food and its pretty healthy considering it can be bought at a grocery store.
      Email me and let me know what you need, I have tons I dont need.

      Hooray! What a great idea! Now I will never sleep!!!

    • Sheri

      This website has it ALL!! I have lots of baby care coupons that I wont be using. I would like to exchange for Science Diet Dog food coupons or Gain Detergent coupons. Let me know.

    • Laura

      Awesome! I just got started trading on a large forum and it is a little overwhelming…maybe a slightly smaller venue would be a good place to start.

      Do you have any tips or resources we could use to help direct people to the inserts that contain the coupons we’re looking for? For instance, I am in need of some Goodlife Recipe dog food coupons. I know I used one a few months ago, but have no clue where it was, or where to look for any that may have been reprinted (I don’t clip until the items make my shopping list). I think having access to something like this would also make other more willing/able to clip and send coupons for trade.

      I love the idea and have joined. But after one day, there are a lot of emails. Would it be possible to set it up similar to how freecycle does? The original Offer, Wanted, Taken goes to the whole group, but the responses go directly back to the person who originally posted. That way it’s not so confusing as to what is a current open offer or request, and what is people setting up individual trades. Just a thought.

    • JenS

      OK, so I must be doing something wrong. My posts don’t seem to show up on the new trading group? I’m signed in. I get a message that says, “Your post was successful.” But I can’t see it. When I “Reply to Author” am I supposed to be leaving a post or sending a private message?

      I have the Science Diet Dog food coupons actually any pet coupons cause we dont have pets but i have a baby and a teenager so hit me up if you need anything about baby and lots of food or just let me know what you have.
      By the way i have the one $2.50/1 Finish/Electrasol so you can get the free dish detergent at cvs this week 8/2- 8/9 write me asap so i can send it soon.
