Talking Coupon Train ~~ New Riders Welcome!

Thank you for your interest in hopping aboard our coupon train. Please be sure to read the next paragraph because sometimes new riders don't quite understand what the procedure involves. Make sure it's something that you really want to do and have ample time for and commitment to because it does take some time and effort on your part.

If you're interested in joining our coupon train, please PM me with your name, mailing address, month and day of birth, and your e-mail address. It's open to anyone interested in sending and receiving manufacturers' coupons. You will need to buy a newspaper every weekend. We send our envies on Mondays after clipping coupons from Sunday's newspaper inserts. By the middle to end of the week you will receive an envelope from your sender with coupons in it. You just remove what you want, add the new coupons from Sunday's newspaper that you don't want to the coupons that were sent to you that you don't want, and send them on to your other train buddy the following Monday.

So glad to learn the link is working! My instructor on how to post the new thread in a link was MyDizneyBoyz way back when and she did an obviously awesome job with her instruction.

As for your kind words, thank you! I love being our train conductor and glad I can contribute in some small way to helping us all save more money for our next trip to Disney.

I'm here!

I priority mailed a box of coupons to LindaB73 today since I didn't get home from WDW until late Monday night and had to work yesterday. Of course as soon as I got home from the post office I found another HUGE envie in my mailbox.

Linda, you should have them by Friday.
