How do I trade or sell my coupons?

Hi,
I'm new to afc, and I always seem to have extra coupons that I don't need. Can someone tell me how to put them up for sale or trade? It seems like a good idea, way better than throwing them away..Thanks so much for your help! I love this site!

I don't have a answer for you, but I'm a newbie and I'd like to know the answer to this question as well. I am single, vegetarian, and I live alone, but I've just started clipping coupons and I have no use for pet, child, meat, etc products. I would love to trade any of these for Morningstar Farms, Boca or St. Ives products!

Hey thanks! But you could either tell us what fsot and raok means, or point us to where the glossary is?

Please be very careful and make sure you check trader feedback and do NOT send any high amounts or GC's. I have done about 20 trades, of which 4 have gone bad for all different reasons, none on my part. That is a 20% rate. We do have many great traders here, but not all. If you want more details PM me, also there is a good thread about what is a red flag for when you are trading.

I am a bit confused about how to get a list started in FSOT. When I click on the link under "tools" I see terms such as value, expires, coupon type, etc across the top & a "process" key to the left. But I see no way to add names/amounts in. Are there directions for how to use the FSOT feature? I'd loved to share coupons I won't use with others, just need to learn how :-)

Thanks to all the replies, I think you all are just awesome. I may have to invite you to my University to give a seminar -- I'm not joking.

islareina - I think a university seminar would be a great idea .. I wish I would have began this whole couponing thing while in college; I can only dream of the money I would have saved!!!!

Remember if you have Qs that are expired or are going to expire without enough time to trade, you can adopt a military base and send them via the Overseas Coupon Program. I finally decided to adopt a base since I have way too many expired Qs. I'll be sending them off this week!
