Part of the ABC’s of Couponing Guide

Guest Post by Lea from Coupon Train

Hello Coupon Friends,

My name is Lea. I do a coupon train. 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, supermarket, 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. Add in a few more people, and you may just have a savings Dream Team!

Coupon Trains – The Basics

Every train is different, depending on who needs what, when, why, and where! Whoever starts up a train usually defines the specific goals and rules for that group. There are a few key fundamentals to consider before you decide which train is right for you.

Basics of the Coupon Trains – The basic coupon train begins with a group of 3 – 6 members at different mailing addresses. An envelope of coupons (typically 40 – 200) is mailed from the “conductor” to the first person on the “train route” (mailing list). That person takes out the coupons they want and replace them with other coupons at least equal to the number they took out. They then mail the envelope (“envie”) to the next person on the route, who does the same.

Ideally each person keeps the envelope for no longer than 1 – 3 days, and pulls out any expired coupons. The train needs to keep moving along, since the idea is to send and receive those much-needed coupons before the next sale, or the expiration date. Coupons expire quickly, so the train is only worthwhile if the coupons can be received, matched up with sales, and redeemed before they expire.

We host all the state but Hawaii and Alaska, Sorry!

Most of all, remember that the coupon train is a team effort! It should be enjoyable, rewarding, and bring SAVINGS to all the members. If you have any questions about the train, just ask!


On Facebook Freecoupontrain-Personal Blog

Thanks so Much,


Note from Deidre:

If that coupon train fills up, and there are more people who want to be involved, please leave a comment for other readers and a way to contact you below!  Maybe Hawaii or Alaska people who want to start one locally??

I’ve added a great new freebie to the Birthday Freebies list!

I just read the Amy from Savvy Shopper Deals signed up for the build-A-Bear Club, and every year on her anniversary of the day she signed up she gets a coupon for a free bear – up to $12 value! It appears you also get a $5 coupon for bear clothes purchases on your child’s birthday too!

Sign up for Build A Bear emails for special offers via email and I hope they keep this promo around for a year so we can score some free Build-A-Bears next year!

*There are some free build-a-bear coupons floating around online, but these are intended for the people they were emailed to and won’t scan at the store.  You need to sign up for their email list and wait to get your coupon.

I was just at Kmart for a reason you won’t believe.   My daughter got invited to a boys birthday party.  I always stock up on “girls” toys for my kids and parties they are invited to, but never thought to buy “boy” presents for my stockpile!  Well, I was lucky to find they had some toys on clearance and I ended up getting a good deal.

But onto the most important part of this post… when the cashier stuck the toy I bought in a bag, she also stuck in a single sheet of paper with 5 $20 coupons when you transfer your prescription to Kmart!  So, if you have a prescription that needs filled, go in to Kmart and ask for the sheet of paper they are stuffing in people’s bags at checkout!  Also, this coupon is for a specific amount, $20, so it is possible Walmart will take it as per Walmart’s new coupon policy.  If anyone tries it at Walmart, let us know if it works!

Read my post on and how it works if you don’t know how exciting prescription transfer coupons are!

CVS prescription transfer coupon: Some CVS Pharmacies WILL accept this Kmart coupon as a competitor’s coupon! Call yours and see if they will take it!

I love swagbucks! Basically, how Swag Bucks works is you use them for your search engine. They are powered by Google and Sometimes when you search, you randomly will get a message “You’ve Won 7 Swagbucks” or some other amount. Sign up for Swagbucks here.  Right now, use code “JoinIn2010” to get 60 Swagbucks just for signing up!

Don’t forget you can get a Swagbuck every day at online polls.

Other ways to get Swagbucks:  watching videos, Special Offers, Surveys, Games, Trade-Ins, Shopping, getting any of the daily deals.

It takes 450 swags to get a $5 gift card – my brother is a typical guy doing searches for college, and gets 1 $5 gift card per month.  I get much more than that, since you can refer people and get points for referring people.  So refer your friends too!
