New thread: http://www.paperbackswap.com/Coupon-Train/topic/254659/ 

 

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.

Hello. Sorry I haven't been around. I see I've been removed from the train. I've really been struggling to get coupons- have no printer and no transporation.  Let me know where this envelope is supposed to go and I'll send it on.

Sorry again!

Rebecca

Ahhhhhhhhhh--- forgot to tell you all I leave Sunday for week in DC as my oldest daughter gets married there on 26th.  Maybe I'm not halting anything cause I just mailed an envy out about a week ago.  Sorry, if someone is due to mail to me while I'm gone, just skip over me this time, and I'll catch the next round!

Ok-- my excuse is "I'm on drugs".   No, really.   I had back surgery last Friday.  I'm not loopy anymore, just forgetful. And you wouldn't believe the wedding problems I've been working out all week---yeah, WHILE I'm on drugs!!!!  OK, enough already, but sometimes I get manic on these meds (according to 15 year old.........of course, I think it's just cause I haven't had any horrible menopause symptoms in a while so finally not feeling ike a depressed insomniac whale! )

Hi Everyone!  Sorry, I didnt get a chance to mail out the envy yesterday because my son was sick.  Our post office wasnt open today so I used the machine to print the postage and put it in the night box so it should go out Monday.

Okay Yvonne. Thanks for heads up. Forgot about that, LOL! It shows the envelope left Dallas, TX on 24th so chances are it is there and Monica will be mailing out soon.

And I definitely understand their was a delay with the holiday, so no worries there. :) Just want to find where we are at.
