Dolphins... Paying It Forward RAOK Contest Train


Taking Sign Ups Until +.
Mail out day is +. Early mail out is fine and is highly encouraged.
No coupons to expire before +.
All RAOK Giveaways must be posted after sign ups end and before the end of day on +.
Winner envie mail out day to be announced.

Please make sure that you can commit to the train before signing up. Remember, failure to mail out on time, excessive resends, and not following the rules can result in you being denied to ride my trains in the future.

This train is going to be a one week mailer with a twist. Each rider will mail out and receive one 25 coupon potluck from their assigned match up.


Sometime between the day match ups are posted, and the day mail outs begin, you MUST post at least one new RAOK Giveaway thread in the RAOK forum (please do not post to the non-stop RAOKs). However, the more RAOKs you post, the more points you will receive. The RAOK Giveaways must be posted by the end of the day on +. You can give away anything you want as long as it is allowed on HCW.

To get points, you must post to the train thread that your RAOK is posted. And, yes of course, you can all sign up for each other's RAOKs, that would be so much fun!! The link for the RAOKS Forum is here.


500 points for any RAOK that must be mailed, such as coupons, stickers, address labels, tea bags, samples, etc. (more points because of postage required).
250 points for any RAOK that can be emailed. Please Note: You must give at least 10 coke codes, 10 BTFEs, 5 of Kelloggs-Pampers-Huggies codes, 1 Redbox code...anything less will not earn points.
Each giveaway must be included in its own post in the RAOKS Forum. If you have more than one winner in a giveaway, you will only get the points for the one giveaway...Thus, it pays for you to post separate giveaways to earn the most points.

must post a link for all of your giveaways in the train thread when you post them. No link, no points. Sorry, I do not have time to go hunting.

Any questions, please ask!!!

The rider with the most points from posting giveaways will be the winner. Then everyone will mail the winner a 25 coupon potluck and either $1cc or 2 stamps (Forever or 50 cents).


Still with me???


Who can join, and what are the train rules?

Anyone who is a member of the trader group and has an itrader rating of 5 or higher with no negatives or neutrals may join. I will not accept riders with any negative feedbacks.

You may ride up to 5 trains at a time @ HCW, so if you are already on 5, hope to catch you next time!

You must post when you mail and when you receive. This is a requirement to ride this train. All envies should be posted as mailed by the end of mail out day! You also must post when you post your RAOK Giveaway.

You do not need a wish list posted in the wish list forum to ride, just remember, if you don't have a list, you will receive a potluck from your buddies, so if that's okay with you, it's okay with me! If your list is very short and specific, other train riders will have a harder time matching your list and you will probably receive a lot of potluck Qs.

This train is potluck which means you may not get 25 coupons from your WL in each envie. You may not even get one coupon from your wishlist. However, we should use our buddy's wishlist as a starting point and then add potluck after we have matched the best we could to their list. In this way, people get more of what they need.

Of course the forum rules apply to all trains conducted on HCW, so please be sure you know the rules before you sign up.

Feedback is never required, but is always appreciated.


Rules/guidelines for envies: 25 coupons minimum. Extras are great, Please remember to check your postage. Some coupons are heavier than others. All coupons must have at least 2 weeks until exp from mail date unless they are extra or you OK'd it with the person you are sending to.

No baby, pet, meds, or oddball products that very few members use like depends unless you have an exact wl match. Example: If someone says they can use cat food frees, do not include regular cat food, unless it is an extra.

A junk envie will require an immediate remail.

You must write the train name and your user name somewhere on the envie.

Some other things that you can include IF your buddy says they can use them:

Printables, store specific, BTFE, CLFE, Pampers Points, Coke codes, Pepsi codes, MIR and TMF forms (check the state restrictions), stickers, other items that your buddy collects. When sending Printables or Store Specific Coupons it does not count towards the 25 coupon potluck unless it is an exact match to the person's wishlist.

If you happen to mail out late for any reason, please PM me and post to the thread so that your buddy knows to watch for the envie. Communication is very helpful in the event of a late mail.

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. Any envie that is not reported as “not received†by at the two week mark will be marked received and you will be forfitting your right to a resend.


To Join:
1. Post to the thread to reserve your seat.

2. Please PM me with your mailing addy and wishlist link. Make sure you send me your mailing addy even if you have sent me your addy before in the past. I will send out one address list after I have them all, and we can get started!
