Planner Squad Swap – Sign Up for May 2016

Do you like to get planner related goodies in your mail box? If so, the Planner Squad Swap is for you! Each month our Squadettes like to participate in a monthly swap that brings the happiness of planner related goodies straight to your mailbox! Want to know how you can participate in the next swap? Keep reading for more information!

How does the Planner Squad Swap work?

Basically, you fill out the form at the bottom of this page to send an email to our Swap leader (the infamous Sarita!) and she will pair you with your swap buddy. Then you and your swap buddy will each shop for and/or create planner related goodies to be packaged up and shipped to your partner! Swap partners are paired together – so whoever you are sending to, will be sending something to you in return.

Who can participate in the swaps?

Our swaps are only open to our awesome Squadettes! Want to be a Squadette too? Come join us in our awesome facebook group! [Yes – we will check if you are a member or not! If you’re not, then your email will go to the virtual trash can and you will not be allowed to participate. So make sure you join our fb group!]

What is the monthly limit we should spend on our swap partner?

The limit is $15 max. That may or may not including shipping, that is up to you. You are more than welcome to spend more on your swap partner if you would like, however that does not guarantee you will get the same amount in return. You must spend a MINIMUM of $15 on your swap partner (again, that can include shipping if you would like).

When is the deadline to sign up?

The swap signup deadline for the May 2016 swap is April 30th.

Okay, I signed up! When will I be assigned a swap partner?

Emails are generally sent out with your swap partners information around the 1st of every month. Check the facebook group for updates from Sarita. If you did not get an email, check your spam folder. If you still can’t find your email, contact Sarita to let her know.

Is there a shipping deadline?

Yes. All swap packages MUST be shipped by May 15th. That gives everyone about two weeks to shop for their partner and put together a package, which is plenty of time. If for some reason you cannot get to the post office in time to ship your partners package, you MUST let Sarita and your swap partner know.

Other things you should know as a Swap Participant

If you flake out on your partner and do not send a swap gift – you will be forever banned from the Planner Squad facebook group and no longer be allowed to participate in future swaps. Also, since partners are paired in groups of two – your swapper will know who their flaky swap partner was, which could ultimately end up in a bad reputation for yourself.

If you sign up – follow through. Zero tolerance for flaky swappers!

Also, do not wait to receive a package before sending yours. That’s not how it works! If everyone waited to receive a package before sending one in return – no one would ever get any packages! If you sign up – follow through!


**Disclaimer: Planner Squad and Facebook is not responsible for any wrong doings that may happen during a swap. When you sign up – keep in mind that you are taking a risk. We have no way to force anyone to send packages. That means, if someone doesn’t follow through on their end of the deal – you may not end up with a package that month. While that really stinks and we try to avoid that as much as possible, we’re ultimately not responsible if you do not get a gift in return. By signing up you are telling us that you understand there is a possibility that you may not receive anything in return. If you do not receive a package by the end of the month – contact Sarita immediately to report it.


Thank you to everyone who has signed up for the swap! This month’s sign ups are closed! Make sure you subscribe to our email list to be notified of next month’s swap!

Happy Swapping!

Planner Squad Hop Recap: Show us Your Happy Mail!

 

Hey Squadettes!  Thank you all so much for another great Planner Squad Hop on Periscope this week! To those of you who are just joining us, every week we put together what we call a “Planner Squad Hop”, where a few members of our group scope about whatever the topic for that week may be.

What is Periscope? Basically, Periscope is a fabulous social media app with live broadcasts.

Follow us to catch all our #plannersquad scopes!

Planner Squad Hop Happy Mail

What is a Periscope Hop?

First, we start off with a host who organizes the hop.  The host will introduce the theme of the hop and give a shout out to plannersquad.com. When the host is finished, we all hop right over to the next scoper who signed up, then the next, and so on.

Want to see what hops we’ve done in the past? Every week after the hop we gather together these awesome replays so anyone who missed out can watch whenever it’s convenient for them. Last week we talked about our favorite planner.


 

Want to Join the Hop?

Interested scopers may sign up under the related graphic on Planner Squad Facebook group.  Each scoper will share for about 10 minutes about the topic of the week.  It’s a fun way to get a closer look at how other people plan and have fun chatting about our favorite topic-planners!

Not able to watch live-or just want to relive all the fun?  No worries!


Watch Planner Squad Replays here:

This week we talked about the Happy Mail we’ve recently received. Happy Mail is when you get fun planner related stuff in the mail – either gifts from friends, planner swaps, or things you’ve ordered.

(If no katch.me replay is available, that scoper does not have a katch.me account.  Please follow on Periscope to watch their live broadcasts!)
