|Tips for Members
Did you know....AFC's Trading forums are a great place to meet new friends, jump on a coupon train, and find new homes for those extra coupons that you can't use! Don't know where to start? Begin by creating a wishlist of coupons that you can use. Once your wishlist is created, you can find directions here that will help you link your wishlist to your username. Having a wishlist is very helpful to other members that wish to trade with you! You can also create ISO and FSOT lists by using AFC's Coupon Database to search for coupons and then selecting those coupons and adding them to your lists! Once you start trading, please remember to leave trader feedback for the members that you trade with. Feedback is the best way to let other members know about your trading experiences and to keep our trading forums safe for everyone! You can leave feedback by clicking on the trader rating under someone's username or visiting their profile page and clicking on the feedback tab. It is also important to include your AFC username with any trades that you send, so that others can leave feedback more easily for you! We hope you'll stop by, and start building your coupon supply today!
Many members often ask why their thread does not show up in New Posts or Today's Posts. When you post something, it will not show up as a new post for you until someone replies. Without a reply, the post is not actually a new post for you, because you have already viewed it. Hope that helps, and thanks to everyone for sharing their great deals and participating in the AFC Community!
