NEW MEMBERS ARE ALWAYS WELCOME!!

RULES

 

For those who don't know what a coupon train is, let me explain.

  • When starting an envelope put in at least 20-30 coupons, then mail them according to list order, 4th post below.
  • The person who receives them takes out what they want, then replaces with the # of coupons they took out. (For example, if you take out 10, then replace with 10 more).
  • Then the process is repeated.

 

NEW RULE: ALL EXPIRED OR COUPONS THAT EXPIRE BEFORE MONTH'S END MUST BE REMOVED ON WHEN EACH PERSON RECEIVES ENVELOPE.

You can toss or send expired/close to expired coupons to Jessica (she collects them to send to an army base.); your choice. Envys are becoming way too cluttered with expireds.

 

  • PLEASE post here when you get envelope AND when you mail it.
  • PLEASE do not keep envelope over 2 days. Only exceptions are weekends and holidays. Let's try to keep the train moving quickly!
  • IF YOU CANNOT GET AN ADDRESS BY THE END OF THE DAY, JUST PM ME. I HAVE THEM ALL ON FILE!!

 

If you fail to abide by rules, you can be kicked off the train.

I understand that some of us may not find what we need, etc... and you are welcome to leave at any time if so, just please let us know in advance. Thanks!!

NEW RULE: You can skip a round if you don't have enough coupons, don't want to mail out, etc... Just please pm me and let me know in advance so I can remove your name from the train order.

HI Everyone!  Everything is the same as in Pamela's post I just moved it over here.  One member will be moved from group 3 to group 1 to even it up since Pamela is no longer going to participate and Heather asked us to skip her until further notice.  I will move them as soon as Yvonne gets Pamela's coupons so that there is no confusion.

Took me a while to find the coupon train discussion, think it was easier when it was under the ROAK section. Had to really search for it.

 

Anyway, I received the coupons from Jessica today (1/17) and will mail out to Stephanie tomorrow (1/18).

I was curious if my group was moving along. I dont want to complain, but its going on 3 months since I have received an envelope. Im pretty sure its due to all the group changes, and I kept getting moved to the end of each new list. But as I said, just curious where things were at. :)

I am just wondering and hoping maybe to make a suggestion on making the group a bit better. Only because I'm having coupons I would love to share, but they sit around for a month, while we wait for the packages to cycle through and then they are almost expired or expired by the time I get my turn in the group.


Is it possible to make the groups smaller, so as to maybe make the mailing faster and make sure everyone is in a a closer proximity to each other.


Just a suggestion as I hate to see these coupons always going to waste. Its good money that someone could be saving.

 

Thanks!

And Monica, I think that may help. No more than 4 people to a group. And we need to start enforcing the 2-3 day rule for mailing.
