Coupon clubs: Save a buck at a coupon swap

Love your location

Choose an accessible location, whether in a library meeting room or at a favorite neighborhood eatery. At the Bella Vista coupon club, members meet twice a month for one hour to clip, chat and swap. The library also hosts a container for regular patrons to drop off unclipped coupons.

Alternately, consider local businesses that might want to host a coupon swap club. One Michigan coupon swap club meets in a hair salon on Sundays after closing hours, says Carla Hurd, a coordinator with the Michigan Coupon Club in Bridgeport, Mich., which meets throughout the state. Swaps hosted by local businesses benefit everyone, Hurd says.

"Members have a place with big tables to swap coupons, and the business owner gets people in her door," Hurd says.
