Original msg. Okay, I am going to take the lead here..or should that be leap? I have been peeking at the fridge swap for quite some time and I have yet to be LUCKY enough to get in on one. For one thing there are 10 times more POP fridge swaps than All-Stars. Does anyone know why? ..(off the point) Anyway, when I do find an All-Star Swap the fridge is either missing or my dates or taken.. or both.

Now, to the point. I will be staying at All Star Sports beginning a few days before the beginning of the FREE DINING. To be precise August 20-September 1st.

Honestly, in the past when staying at a Moderate we had a fridge included, but barely needed it. When in a Value, we have just used the cooler (but had to fill it with ice daily - a bit of a pain, but it worked).

I have been considering buying a fridge and shipping it to the resort and then shipping it home again. Ughhhhhhhh! Why have I been considering this? Probably because it is CHEAPER than renting from Disney.


Now, I am considering purchasing the fridge and starting a swap of my own. I am inspired by another poster who will be staying at an All-Star nearly the same days as I am. DRATS, I wish I could have just gotten in on that one!!!

So my swap would continue on September 1st, when I leave...IF I can get enough people to commit to it. I would ask for a $10-12 donation from the first dozen or so participants as they make their commitments. And I would have to say no refunds due to changing of plans (or heaven forbid, a LOST fridge). That would be too complicated, I think. Those of us that use it first will "donate" it to those who come after.

I think we can make this work, especially since we would begin at the beginning of FREE DINING. I mean all of those budget minded people, surely are looking for a way to get a practically FREE fridge to go with their FREE DINING. I know I do not want to pay the $100 extra just to rent a fridge.

Anyway, if I can fill up the first few months, without a gap (which is how I think fridges get lost!!!) then I think we can make this work. Please PM me if you are interested.

Below is the current list!!! (updated daily)

oooohhhhh... :worship: :worship: I am sooo in if you start one!!! I have been searching :surfweb: :badpc: for one and asked to be included in one but they only had some dates available for my trip.:worried:

I would be happy to pay whatever is needed to start up the swap.:thumbsup2

My dates are Sept 20-28!!!

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help!!

P.S. I also wondered why there were so many Pop swaps??!:confused3 Theres so many they have their own football team!!

Oh I am at ASMo!

Not usually a problem.

My swap includes all 3 of the All Star resorts. We made one resort the HOME resort as it helps us keep better track of where our fridge is...knock on wood, our little fridge just had it's 1 year anniversary and has only gone MIA once which of course was during MY week to use it!!!!!

OP: I will send folks your way that can't get into my swap.

Hello, is it worth it to start a new swap..
I can get on because I was thinking about buying one, because there isn't any for me in June..
So if there is enough people thinking it will work I will go out and buy it and then there will be another one available.

All Star Fridge Swap sounds very blahhh, boring. :worried:
Now we need a new name for this thread to grab others attention. :duck:
Also, I want to keep it on the front page as much as possible - any ideas on that? I guess everytime someone chimes in we will get tossed back up to the top.
I really want to keep this going so we can save a little more money!:earsboy:

We need to be added to the "Fridge Swap" Sticky!!

At least that way when people go to that, they will see our name up there.

I'm on here several times a day so I can "bump" us whenever I get on!

As for a name :confused3 popcorn::

Maybe something will just pop in my head!!

CarolinaMomOf3boys, no problem! I hope you find one! It seems that pople always want the same dates on these swaps. Do frugal people like us vacation in packs. :confused3 (must have something to do with codes, promotions, and free dining!)

If we get enough overlap I am certainly willing to add a second fridge to our swap. Hey if we did that, we could call our swap "Thing One and Thing Two" If that wouldn't be too Universal Studios of us! :lmao:

Also, I want everyone to remember that I am willing to begin in June or July (We are currently beginning at the end of August because that is when I will be there.) :cool1:

I am picking the fridge up on Sept 20 from TinkFan625. :cool1:

She is at ASMu and I am at ASMo, how do I "get" the fridge? Is it sent over from one hotel to the next? Does she deliver it to my hotel? Do I go pick it up? We won't have any transportation (we are only using ME) so I am wondering how this works:confused3 . Also to know for the next person after me!!

Thanks!!

pakhowe,
It looks like we have almost as many requests for unavailable dates as we have for open dates. Again, I will say that we budget minded people must travel in packs! :lmao: I have talked before about making this a 2 fridge swap. Our beginning date is Aug 20 (because that is my arrival date). Would you be willing to begin Fridge 2 on Aug 12? If so I think we can accomodate almost everyone.

I went out of town for a few days on coaching business. Now that I am back I have added the latest interested parties. I think that we do have enough interest for the 2 fridge swap. Also, there are some dates with more than two interested swappers so I have included them (first come, first serve order) so that other fridge swap organizers know what is out there and also in case someone drops out. We will now be called All-Star Fridge Swap (Fridge One and Fridge Two) For lack of a better name. :thumbsup2

So my swap would continue on September 1st, when I leave...IF I can get enough people to commit to it. I would ask for a $10-12 donation from the first dozen or so participants as they make their commitments.

Jennipooh and pakhowe will be the leader for the 2 groups and will collect money and order the fridges when we have enough people. Is it correct? Now I guess that we need to bump the thread up more often so that more people can join us to fill the available dates in Oct and Nov.

Jennipooh: I hope you don't mind me joining. If you could update the list on the 1st post to reflect the new changes to the list and highlight the AVAILABLE SPOTS for both FRIDGES, it would help to fill the gap sooner. Thank you very much for organizing the swap.

I know & I'm sorry. Jennipooh is the only one able to edit the first page because she began the thread. She has been unavailable for a while but I am keeping up with it as I am the first one on the list 2 fridge. I have a PM in to her and am waiting to hear back, I hope everything is okay and she is just away. Hopefully we will all know how this is going to proceed soon but I am trying to keep list 2 updated in the meantime. Be assured list 2 will happen no matter what.:)

Original msg. Okay, I am going to take the lead here..or should that be leap? I have been peeking at the fridge swap for quite some time and I have yet to be LUCKY enough to get in on one. For one thing there are 10 times more POP fridge swaps than All-Stars. Does anyone know why? ..(off the point) Anyway, when I do find an All-Star Swap the fridge is either missing or my dates or taken.. or both.

Now, to the point. I will be staying at All Star Sports beginning a few days before the beginning of the FREE DINING. To be precise August 20-September 1st.

Honestly, in the past when staying at a Moderate we had a fridge included, but barely needed it. When in a Value, we have just used the cooler (but had to fill it with ice daily - a bit of a pain, but it worked).

I have been considering buying a fridge and shipping it to the resort and then shipping it home again. Ughhhhhhhh! Why have I been considering this? Probably because it is CHEAPER than renting from Disney.


Now, I am considering purchasing the fridge and starting a swap of my own. I am inspired by another poster who will be staying at an All-Star nearly the same days as I am. DRATS, I wish I could have just gotten in on that one!!!

So my swap would continue on September 1st, when I leave...IF I can get enough people to commit to it. I would ask for a $10-12 donation from the first dozen or so participants as they make their commitments. And I would have to say no refunds due to changing of plans (or heaven forbid, a LOST fridge). That would be too complicated, I think. Those of us that use it first will "donate" it to those who come after.

I think we can make this work, especially since we would begin at the beginning of FREE DINING. I mean all of those budget minded people, surely are looking for a way to get a practically FREE fridge to go with their FREE DINING. I know I do not want to pay the $100 extra just to rent a fridge.

Anyway, if I can fill up the first few months, without a gap (which is how I think fridges get lost!!!) then I think we can make this work. Please PM me if you are interested.

Below is the current list!!! (updated daily)

Fridge One
Aug 20 - Sep 1, 2008 ...... Jennipooh (All-Star Sports)

Since our 2nd Fridge Swap List is constantly growing and there's a need for pakhowe (our leader) to update/change the list date and title in order to avoid confusion since OP didn't update the first post for a long time, I would vote to post our 2nd Fridge Swap List on a separate thread so that it can be managed as needed. I hope jennipooh doesn't mind because pakhowe and other people had tried to contacted her but didn't hear back. I guess if everyone on list 2 agreed with this option, please post your opinion. The new thread can always be linked back to this thread.


I Agree also !!:thumbsup2

I'm glad to see you branched off. I will send folks your way!

I feel bad for the folks that are signed up for fridge #1 :sad2: . I hope they hadn't paid any $ yet. Perhaps they need to branch off as well and regroup into their own swap. Let me know if there is anything I can do to help.

Hi all.

I have just sent a pm to Jennipooh, but I wanted to post it here as well, in the event someone else is updating List 1, and wants to take me off the list.

clajgray - Dec 6-13 - ASMusic

I just wanted to make sure I let someone know.

TIA.

Just trying to check in on this: is this still active, or are people trying to look for other swaps. I think it is so great that this was at ASSP, but I am hoping that it doesn't get away from us that are on list 1. If anyone has any ideas about this swap, let us know.

Thanks

I would still like to be on this list as we are traveling with another family and would love to have a fridge for each room. Is this fridge still a go? I'm a wee bit confused - thanks for any help!

Dawn-Marie is still interested in this swap for fridge #1 August 14-21.

Ok, swappers for fridge #1 it appears that the original leader has jumped ship and that unless someone else wants to take over, organize it and order a fridge for the folks on list #1, this swap is dead.

ANYONE :confused3 ? It's really quite simple to do. I have been running one for over a year.

Circuitcity.com has good prices and free shipping to the resort.

What do you all think???

Original msg. Okay, I am going to take the lead here..or should that be leap? I have been peeking at the fridge swap for quite some time and I have yet to be LUCKY enough to get in on one. For one thing there are 10 times more POP fridge swaps than All-Stars. Does anyone know why? ..(off the point) Anyway, when I do find an All-Star Swap the fridge is either missing or my dates or taken.. or both.

Now, to the point. I will be staying at All Star Sports beginning a few days before the beginning of the FREE DINING. To be precise August 20-September 1st.

Honestly, in the past when staying at a Moderate we had a fridge included, but barely needed it. When in a Value, we have just used the cooler (but had to fill it with ice daily - a bit of a pain, but it worked).

I have been considering buying a fridge and shipping it to the resort and then shipping it home again. Ughhhhhhhh! Why have I been considering this? Probably because it is CHEAPER than renting from Disney.


Now, I am considering purchasing the fridge and starting a swap of my own. I am inspired by another poster who will be staying at an All-Star nearly the same days as I am. DRATS, I wish I could have just gotten in on that one!!!

So my swap would continue on September 1st, when I leave...IF I can get enough people to commit to it. I would ask for a $10-12 donation from the first dozen or so participants as they make their commitments. And I would have to say no refunds due to changing of plans (or heaven forbid, a LOST fridge). That would be too complicated, I think. Those of us that use it first will "donate" it to those who come after.

I think we can make this work, especially since we would begin at the beginning of FREE DINING. I mean all of those budget minded people, surely are looking for a way to get a practically FREE fridge to go with their FREE DINING. I know I do not want to pay the $100 extra just to rent a fridge.

Anyway, if I can fill up the first few months, without a gap (which is how I think fridges get lost!!!) then I think we can make this work. Please PM me if you are interested.

Below is the current list!!! (updated daily)

if a refridge becomes available for 9/16 to 9/24, I would love to be included. It doesn't have to be those exact dates but anytime during that time period.

TIA

This fridge swap is dead! The original poster "jennypooh" left everyone high and dry. If you need a fridge check out "saved a sinking ship". Eeyoregeon graciously stepped up and took over, check on her new swap! Good luck

Dear Mods: Can we please close this thread? Everyone from fridge one and two have branched off and this swap is no longer. Thanks!
