Do You Barter? -- Tell Us and Enter to win $10!
It’s time for our weekly trivia question: Do you Barter? Have you ever traded services or goods without cash? What has been your experience?
Our own Philip Brewer mentioned bartering, among other options, in his recent "Opting out of the Money Economy". In fact, it is very likely that many of use will use barter sometime in our lifetime. Whether you do a straight trade with someone you know, or choose to use an official Barter currency (like trade credits, points, etc.) it's becoming more and more the "cool" thing to do. RecessionWire even gives you some basic tips in their Barter 101 tutorial, if you've no idea where to begin.
So, what do you think? Is bartering something you've tried and been successful at? Are you new to the game, or have you been doing it for years? What would you recommend to others just getting into the barter game? Your comment could win you a $10 prize!
