The List

As I mentioned in my last post…

I'm going to post as comprehensive of a trading list as I can muster at this time.

On countless occasions I’ve been asked, “how does this work?”, so I’m going to give you a brief rundown of the trading process. If you think you’ve got it down, feel free to skip the instructions or just ask me whatever in your email.

Whether you’d just like to help me make it to the finish line or are hoping to get your hands on that Groupon that you missed…here’s how it works (no, I can’t get you anything that isn’t on this list…if other things popup, I’ll post a list of additions.):

1) Send me an email at [email protected]

2) Please include your name, city and which Groupons you are interested in taking off my hands

3) If you have any questions about a specific deal, I recommend that you Google the name of the business followed by the word “Groupon”. Sometimes multiple deals pop up, but it will give you info about the company and explain more about what is included.

4) Let me know if you have any additional questions.

5) Tell me approximately how much you are wanting to contribute in exchange for those Groupons you would like.

6) While I can’t touch money, if I have a dollar amount in mind, I can come up with some trading options in that ballpark or you could send funds to another helper who is waiting on contributions for the purchase of a larger item (like a plane ticket home!). If Paypal is an option for you…let me know that too.

I’ll be adding other Groupons soon…I have a number set aside for active trades and for survival purposes, of course.

The List:

(sorry for the formatting, any shorthand, typos and/or lack of description. Dates often mean when the voucher expires but some have been extended. You are welcome to call the business to find out if that is a hard deadline. I apologize if by the time I get your email, the deal you wanted is no longer available or already traded. Dollar amounts are the full retail value):

  1. Josh, When do you return home, and what do you usual trade for help with Airfare, I would like to help out if you need/want any.

  2. Richard Wilkes says:

    Josh, Congrtz on your year..2 weeks to go..I had fun watching u do it..enjoy the money

  3. Hi Josh,

    I am new to this site but with prices on everything going up I became really interested in the “Cincy Keeping It Green $60 ” above. I am not sure what is going on here, or how this whole thing works. Send me a personal E-mail if you can and I can send you back my number. I’d rather talk over the phone unless you have a few pages of a small site that tells more details about the works of everything. You have my E-mail please Subject it Josh Stevens Reply. Mainly becasue I have been on line all night with so many different coupon sites. As I mentioned this is my first time getting envolved in anyhting like this.
    I really would like to learn what to do to get coupons at prices for free. :)

  4. @Vince - I’m heading home this week…there is no usual trade. Typically, you would tell me which of my Groupons interest you and about how much you think you can contribute in exchange for them and I’ll take it from there. Usually I can find something in that ballpark that I need or you can contribute to a larger fund like for airfare via paypal. Thanks! Send me an email with which Groupons you’d like.

    Thanks Richard! I have lots more stories…stay tuned!

  5. Oh Josh, you have so few Seattle Groupons! Is that because we are greedy for your delicious deals or because we are being slighted? *sniff* How does it feel to be in the home stretch?
