Coupon trains are simply a way of exchanging coupons by postal mail. While this is not a new concept and predates the Internet, the Internet has opened up opportunities to better connect savers. This means those “Great Coupons” that aren’t available in your local paper, grocery store, or even mail just may be in someone else’s. That pile of “free” products or coupons you were going to discard may be exactly what someone else is looking for.
Each Train has its specific rules but here are the basics for all the trains. Each train will consist of a conductor/sponsor and two passengers. The Conductor/sponsor will send 40 coupons in an envelope including the mailing list for the coupon train. The conductor/sponsor will mail to the first passenger on the “train route” (mailing list). That person/passenger will take out coupons they want and replace them with other coupons at least 10 or more with an expiration date of 30 days or more. That person/passenger will check off their name and send to the next person/passenger on the route who will do the same. The last person/passenger will send to the conductor/sponsor. Ideally each person/passenger keeps the envelope for no longer than 1-3 days and pull out any expired coupons or soon to expire within 5 days. We want the train to move quickly so we can get new coupons we may need and bless someone else with coupons we don’t need.
You will provide your First and Last Initial and mailing address. You will also be able to check mark whether you are interested in Sponsoring a Coupon Train. To do so you will need 20 – 50 coupons. I will collect information for participants on your sponsored train. You will be listed as Sponsor/Conductor and will receive an email with attached document with mailing list for the coupon train.
