About the exchange

  • $35 minimum before shipping cost, but feel free to give as much as you'd like ( Look at what they gave last year).
  • New rubs and sauces only please.
  • Try to think outside of the box and pick local or unique products.
  • To ensure you don't receive a local product, you will not be paired with anyone within your state.  In addition Canadians will not be paired up with fellow Canucks.  
  • ********250 post minimum to participate in the main exchange.  If you're under 250, but participated in a previous exchange, you can participate in the main exchange.
  • ***Participants are required to post a picture of the Care Package contents that they received from their draw in the Show Off thread (will be created a few days after June 20th).  Peeps really put a lot of thought into their care packages, and love when you show off what they sent you!!
  • ****Read the FAQ before you ask questions!!!

Elfster Site 
  • Include your forum handle in the Nickname Field (mandatory).  **If you do not get this done, you will be removed from the Exchange.
  • Include your current shipping address.
  • Complete the Wish List.  Include any allergies, dislikes or preferences.
  • ^^^^ Please READ your draw's Wish List

FAQ

Where is the Nickname field?
  • After registering, click on your profile icon at the top right and select "My Settings

  • Next, click on your name at the top left

  • Click "edit" to add your forum handle to the "Nickname" field.  This is also where you can add to your wish list.  Please do that!


What if I have a question for my draw?
  • If you have a question for your draw, Elfster has a anonymous messaging system.
When can I ship my package?
  • Care packages can be shipped anytime after you receive your draw.  Please try to have everything shipped by June 25, 2018.  If you're unable to, please notify me and message your draw.
When will I find out who my draw is?
  • You will receive your draw from Elfster on the morning of June 19, 2018
Does everyone see my address?
  • Only your draw and the exchange admin (me) has access to your information.
Is my draw my Elfster?
  • Probably not!  This is not a 1:1 exchange, so everyone is matched up with different eggheads across the country!
Can I tell my draw that I'm their Elfster?
  • To keep it fun, please keep it a secret and DO NOT disclose your identity.  
How do I tell my draw I'm their Elfster?
  • In your package, include a note letting your draw know that you're their Elfster.  Feel free to tell your draw about the product and what you like it best on.
What if I don't like my care package?
  • If you're not completely happy with your product, please don't embarrass someone and just be grateful for what you have received. 

***Please make sure to package everything well, especially breakables!  Use lots of peanuts and insure your product, especially if you're sending something to Canada (experienced this 1st hand).

Thanks in advance for participating folks!!

    Well I’ll be glad to do it. That really sucks. Ive done the exchange the past 4 years and its a lot of fun. I hate that happened to you. Hell one year the post office busted one of my boxes I sent and they trashed it. I had to rush to get another one together and get sent out.

    @lkapigian hate that this happened to you.  I hope you signed up for the main exchange.  Please say you did.  If you didn't, we'll remove you and you sign up for the main one.

    BTW, unless he makes it right, @motsol is not allowed to participate in any exchange going forward.
    Just a hack that makes some $hitty BBQ....

    I know your comment was meant to be tongue in cheek, but I really enjoyed the box you sent me a couple years ago, especially that mustard sauce.  Thanks again!

    I still have stuff from 2 years ago.  I'm gonna have to sit this one out.  If you come up with an odd number, I can send a package out to even it up though.
