MODERATOR GUIDEPOST: If you have access to The Coupon Connection, this link will take you there; if you do not, it will not work.

Q. What is The Coupon Connection?

A. The Coupon Connection
The exchange forum for legally transferable coupons issued by various frequent traveler programs. This is N-O-T a forum for anything related to the buying, selling or barter of awards.


Q. What are the requirements for admittance?

A. The current requirements for admission privileges to The Coupon Connection Forum are: a member must have 180 days of tenure on FlyerTalk and 180 (constructive) posts on FlyerTalk.

The Coupon Connection is intended for active participants and contributors to the airline/hotel/miles/points boards, granted as a privilege and for personal use - it is not an automatic right or perquisite of membership.


Q. How can I find The Coupon Connection?

A. If you qualify for admission, when you are signed in and look at the FlyerTalk Forums listing, toward the end of the listings you will find the Community group of fora listed, including CommunityBuzz! FlyerTalk Cares! and second from the end in this section, The Coupon Connection. (Or see the link above.)


Q. I do not / no longer see The Coupon Connection on my Forum listing!

A. If you do not see The Coupon Connection as a Forum display in your lists, you have not been granted admission, or admission may have been withdrawn (the most common reasons might include post padding - rapid or contentless posting - spending much of your time / posting in Coupon Connection attempting to trade, offering to sell or buy, etc.


Q. How can I learn more about The Coupon Connection?

A. When you are granted access, familiarize yourself with The Coupon Connection TOS in the "Welcome" message and in the stickies. Until then, enjoy and benefit from the amazing knowledge of FlyerTalk members.

The following is a note updated in March, 2005 by Randy Petersen regarding access to the forum:

"What we value most on FlyerTalk is dialog about the topic of miles and points. It's in our history and in our souls. The Coupon Connection grows out of the familiarity of Community, which is actually a good thing. However lately we've found that new members have become members of FlyerTalk to take advantage of the generosity of The Coupon Connection. I have strong feelings that this is not the best direction for FlyerTalk. As a result, we've instituted a feature of FlyerTalk that will limit access to The Coupon Connection to those members we feel have contributed enough to FlyerTalk to enjoy the benefits of posting on this forum. The idea that by posting in the miles, points and travel forums, members will better familiarize themselves with the other members they may exchange with later and have developed a sense of respect for the Community we call FlyerTalk. We feel that it's better to give first into the Community of FlyerTalk by way of content, advice and information than it is to be lined up at the goodie wagon. I feel that becoming part of the Community of FlyerTalk will go a long way toward enjoying the other benefits of this wonderful group of people. "

Cheers,
Randy.

The Coupon Connection should be viewed as a 'small secret’ for those who have contributed over time to the content that helps our many members. Coupon Connection access requires 180 days of FlyerTalk membership and 180 posts. Attempting to obtain access through post-padding or rapid-posting will result in the loss of Coupon Connection privileges, regardless of the content of such posts.

Coupon Connection was moved to the Community section recently. Have you been looking for it there, or in its long time location higher in the forum order?

Yes, Randy instituted a change so that 90 days membership on FlyerTalk is required, along with 90 posts.

Did some of your posts go missing? History shows your first post was only 5 days ago.

Why the hurry?

If you've only just passed the threshold it may take a while for the FT servers to recognise that.

This is correct access is not given immediately upon filling the requirements, but they are updated once per hour, so you may have to wait a little while for the forum to show up upon meeting the requirements. Thanks,

Had made the 90 days and 90 posts but could not access as well.

Guess I'll wait the hours or so for the servers to catch up. Already did the log out and log in again.

thanks!
