    "August Express"
    *Rider's Choice! Since we have so few trains boarding in the train forum these days, I am now going to include the option to ride for 1, 2, 3 or all 4 weeks! Please let me know if you'd prefer to ride fewer than 4 weeks and which week(s) you'd like to mail! Hoping to get some folks aboard who like the one time mail outs and/or might be out of town for a week, but able to mail the other weeks!


    Newbies with a itrader of at least 5 with plenty of coupons to share are welcome! please read all requirements. I know the list is long, but its to help ensure you know what is expected so all passengers have a great ride!!

    Please make sure to read ALL info and requirements before joining.

    You can only ride up to 5 trains at a time at HCW. If you are already on 5, you can catch the next one!

    After reading this WHOLE thread, post below to ride and then PM me with your full name and addy!

    How it works:
    This train will run for the month of August!!

    You will mail out 1 envie to a different rider and 1 rider will mail to you.

    We will repeat this up to 4 times (you choose!) on each Thursday of the month in August. In each envie there will be a minimum of 25 coupons.
    The mail outs will be August 10, 17, 24, 31

    Early mail outs are fine!


    Each envie must have a minimum of 25 coupons following the guidelines below. Each of those coupons must have an expiration date of at least 2 weeks from the mail date. So that means:

    MAIL OUT:
    August 10th....NO q's expire before August 24

    August 17th....NO q's expire before August 31
    August 24th...NO q's expire before September 7th
    August 31st...NO q's expire before September 14th



    If you want to include extras with shorter dates that is fine as long as it is over the 25.

    I will send out a rider list to each rider with the riders mailing info you will need to do your envie each week.

    To Join:
    You must be able to mail 1 envie for each week that you signup for with at least 25 q's in each one.

    You must post when you mail and when you receive.

    Please leave feedback for your match ups!!
    You need a wish list posted to ride. If your list is very short and specific, other train riders will have a harder time matching your list. If there's something you don't need multi's of, note it.


    This train is potluck which means you may not get 25 coupons from your WL in each envie. Although please try to match wish lists.

    No baby, no pet, no meds, no oddball products that very few members use like depends unless you have an exact wl match. If someone says they can use cat food frees, do not include regular cat food, unless it is an extra.
    Examples of junk q's if you are unsure......Depends, Resturant q's, Poise, Diapers, if q's like these are not on the wish list it would be considered junk. So please send what you would want to receive..do unto others

    Limit of 1 of each coupon unless it is an exact match to a wish list. If you have and exact wish list match, then duplicates are encouraged!!! again, more than 1 of something is OK if its "extra"

    printables are great to send if the member can use them.

    store specific coupons are only OK if they are on the WL.

    BTFE's Coke Codes, Pepsi Codes are all great to include if they are wish list items.

    Rebates and TMF forms are GREAT to include. Watch state restrictions.

    If for any reason, any of your envies are not received, you will be asked to re mail at the 2 week point. Joining this train is your agreement to this rule.
    Also an envie not posted as received at the 2 week point will be marked as received.


    Looking forward to a great month of August!!


    If you rode this train in July, I will do my best to NOT match to the same riders you mailed to in July!

    Thanks to dominicsmommy for this train idea!

    Sorry guys! I had a last minute chance to get out of town for a few days and jumped on it! Got a few days on the beach (Lake Michigan, but still there was sand and waves and beautiful sunsets!) I will get matchups posted and address list out ASAP! I will adjust mail dates for week one! My apologies!

    Okay. Guess today is just not my day. ;)

    I realized (a bit late) that Week 2 match-ups had been posted for a day or more and tomorrow was the mail date. Immediately sat down and put together a nice envie. I was pleased I had so many matches after being out of trading for a while.

    I was just about to seal the envelope when I noticed the name @catara at the top of the list for @quenice0717. Went to the train list and followed the link again with the same result. It seems the above link for quenice leads to catara's wish list.

    Did get quenice's list from her siggy, so I started over. Unfortunately, I didn't have nearly as many matches the second time around. Found a few, but I'm hoping quenice can make use of some nice non-inserts for trading. I'll get it mailed tomorrow.

    @mydogalex2000 might want to fix the link before quenice thinks no one reads her wish list any longer. :p
