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?

Due to trying to keep this thread consistent with the "official trading thread" up in Freebies -- the following rules have been imposed for now:

Temporary rules for now (until we can get more permanent ones in place):

Please note these rules are from the Official Treading Thread up in Freebies. Credit goes to kel_be for these rules. Also see Rule #16

These rules were put into effect so that there is consistency (for at least the time being) between this thread and the Official Trading Thread up in the Freebies area.


You are welcome to trade anything you please, as long as it is $5 or under (retail value, not perceived value) excluding coupons. Please be aware that you are trading at your own risk! If something happens, the Moderators will not get involved. You need to work out the problems/issues with the other party on your own. You cannot negatively bash a "bad trader" in your signature, or anywhere else on Slickdeals.net It is a Personal Attack, and is not allowed here.
You may contact a moderator after you have made every effort possible to resolve the issue(s).

Remember, you are trading at your own risk! We are unable to enforce any sanctions or force a user to act since we do not monitor nor endorse this activity. Further, we cannot guarantee that administrative sanctions will occur as a result of abuse without positive proof.

Do NOT offer money of any kind! It's a self promotion for personal gain (monetary gain), and it's not allowed! Money cannot exchange hands between SD member. This is includes PMs, posts, or any other forms of communication on SD! You cannot ask for money/Pay Pal in "exchange". That is selling, and is not allowed here. Same for referrals! You cannot have people take part in referrals as part of your "trade".

1. Must be $5 or under (retail value, perceived value). Anything more will be removed (moderators reserve the right to remove your entire post if necessary). Repeat offenders will be warned.
2. Don't like the $5 rule? Don't participate here
3. You may only trade for something for $5 and under and only offer something $5 and under.
4. If there is a problem with your trade, or the person you are trading with you need to work it out on your own and in PRIVATE. Moderators will no longer be getting involved in disputes. Alert the Moderators of any dishonest or bad traders after resolution attempts have been made.
5. What number rule is this? That's the MAXIMUM retail value your trade must be.
6. Have fun, be fair and honest.
7. $5 or under ONLY.
8. Post only what you would like and what you have. All replies and dealing should be done via PM.
9. F?nf, cinq, cinco, ????, cinque, vijf, fem, five. Got it? Good!
10. You must list he amounts of the items you are trading. Don't say "GC", say "$3 GC". Be honest & specific.
11. Coupons carry a value of only 1/20 of 1 cent. Therefore, they are OK if the OFF amount exceeds $5.
12. Gift Cards exchanges may not exceed the amount of $5. This applies to both sides of the deal. If you're generous enough to offer a gift card over $5 in exchange for a gift card $5 and under, you are still breaking the rules, no matter how nice it may seem.
13. Keep the chit chat to a very low minimum, so it does not clutter the board!
14. PLEASE edit your original post when what you were offering for trade is gone (just GONE is fine!)
15. You can only "bump" your trade list once in a 24hr period.
16. NO asking for shipping or postage at all (unless you send a SASE, IF your item is small enough) -- this is because shipping and/or postage would require the exchange of $$$ or a paypal transaction, which is not allowed.

If you do not follow these rules, this thread will be closed by a mod and ruin it for all the Slick Dealers who enjoy it. YOU WILL FOREVER BE IN THE SLICK DEALS DOG POUND IF YOU IGNORE RULES! Please, do not ruin it for those who love this thread!

Thank you javaFlower for rules #8 & #14. Thank you javaFlower & DawnMarie for rule #10 and thank you mamajayjay for rules #11 & #12.

Although there haven't been any problems in this thread -- the trading of items greater than $5 in value is a concern.

The rules will be modified in the near future as to how things will be handled here.

Thank You.

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)
