I have a group of people who pass coupons around. once we've all gone through them and taken what we want, I end up with the rest. I've used them as packing material when sending packages to college students. But I don't send so many packages now that they are all graduating and heading into better paying fields than my own.... So - does anyone want envelopes of coupons? I pull the expires ones, but that is the only claim I can make. I don't have time to sort or track them, or list them out. There tends to be an average of 3 or 4 a month, but no regular schedule... Anyone interested? I'd be willing to mail an envelope on my own stamp, and if, after getting it and going through it, you thought it was helpful, and wanted to do it again we could work something out. But, fair warning, my handwriting is horrible, so address labels would be appreciated. By all means, post questions here, or PM me...

send me a PM with name and address. I will send out an envelope when I get one. (sent the 1st one out this morning) it will be a first come first serve thing.

I will handle the 1st stamp. If it is helpful, useful, etc, then you could send labels (preadressed envelopes would work too) or whatever you like.

Just a thought, to help you save on postage. How about a coupon chain? We sign up. The order we sign up is the order the chain runs 1st time through as a trial. First person sends out an envelope. The 2nd person take/adds to the envelope and mails it to the next person and so on. Also, due to location being a factor only MFG. coupons would be used. Any thoughts?

Thats what we do here - minus the postage (we pass them, or in-office mail) and we've found that adding to the envelope already going makes people not open it... This way we are positive we haven't seen that particular coupon before.

We've been doing this for about 6 years and worked out the kinks. there are about 3 of us who tend to cut coupons. everyone else on the list just takes... those who cut get first dibs, and then it gets passed to the next person depending on when you joined the list.

The ones I am sending have already made the rounds here. So, I wouldn't want them to head back as a chain. If you take mine and start a chain, I am fine with that. I'd like them to be used. no need for the manufacturers to keep that money.

Yes, send a SASE if you want more. I am about out of stamps for this. I have been *way* busy at work (and with my 5 day Pogo pass) and have not done coupon stuff lately. I will try to catch up soon. Glad they were useful
