Thread Details

I was wondering if anyone had ever considered starting up a thread for donating stuff that you got free or cheap to another SDer?

I remember reading recently, but can't remember where, of someone who was looking for the soyjoy bars for a cancer patient. I, for one, have several boxes that I won't eat, and wouldn't mind donating to someone who could use it on here. Also, back when WAGS had their brand of claritin on special, I recall someone looking for extra boxes, which I might have as well.

I thought maybe folks would be willing to donate to another SD person if they needed a product. Kinda like the RAOK coupon thread, but with actual items. Of course, it would be up to you if you wanted to ship for free, .

Anyone interested?

I respectfully disagree with this. Maybe we should change the title of the thread, but I don't mind people asking for things to be donated to them or traded. There are times that we don't know what to do with items that we get that someone can use.
And I respectfully disagree with you. Begging has never been allowed on SD. If what you are suggesting is allowed, all that will show up in this thread are begs. People need to learn to share and contribute, and not just expect to take.

I have no problem with someone asking for stuff in their signature line, or posting in the trading thread what they want and something they have to trade for it, with a 'or let me know what you are in search of'.

Do we have a trading thread for stuff other than coupons? This one is pretty much "I have this/want that or want nothing".

I kind of like the idea of an "In Search Of...." Thread. Smilie

If you happen to find such a thread, please email me privately. I'd like to get a few Neuragen - don't mind if it's a trade or whatever. Heard this stuff is great for arthritis - which lots of us have as we get older.

Oh yeah, I remember seeing that thread a long time ago. I never knew what happened to it. It's in the FREEBIES forum. Smilie

I wonder if we could get something like that over here in the DS forum. Scratchchin

yikes, i was mod alerted to come in to this thread for another reason and i saw this.

sorry, s/h is not allowed. this thread falls goes by the same rules as the trading thread rules where you're not allowed to ask for s/h only because that involves paypal or money exchange...which we strictly prohibit. kindly edit your post if you don't wanna trade anymore. Stick Out Tongue

Sorry Serra, I didn't realize you couldn't ask for S&H. The first post of this thread conflicts with the rules in the wiki:

First post: "Of course, it would be up to you if you wanted to ship for free, or ask the receiver to cover shipping expenses."

I'll edit. Smilie

It sure is gonna make it harder to get rid of stuff that others may use if you have quite a bit but it costs more than $5 to ship. Frown

so sorry about this Frown

we've never had to come look at this thread because there haven't been a problem till now. and wot??? you mean you DSers clear the shelves, leave nothing for me and are not doing this out of the kindness of your hearts???? EEK! Stick Out Tongue

now that i took a look, it's really not okay to ask for s/h. s/h requires paypal or money exchange.

Or maybe start an ISO (In search of) Thread. SD'ers could choose to read the thread or skip it like any other thread. Probably need to ask a mod if it would be allowed. Just a thought.

Hi! I was referred to this thread. I get horrible migraines, and Excedrine migraine was recalled from broken capsules. I have been to at least 10 stores looking for it, and I took my past pill last week. CVS told me it could be months before they get more because it has been pulled everywhere. Does anyone have any laying around? If so, please contact me. I would love to work something out.

Good news! I just got an email from CVS saying it would be back in stores on 10/19 (and you can place a preorder online)
