It appears that bartering is alive and well in the United States! We had a friend tip someone with energy drinks he had in his car…a female friend traded relations for a term paper!
Even Craigslist has a bartering page. A guy in California was trying to sell his car. A buyer showed up interested in the car and instead of cash, if offered to give him a quarter pound of weed! The California guy worked for the police station and the drug team met him for the exchange!

What have you bartered for?

Barter is bigger than your think
I ran one of the most successful business to business barter/trading companies in Denver in the 1980's and we had nearly 1000 business that would sell to one and buy from another using a central accounting feature in the middle. It's virtually everything Visa/MasterCard do with out the government issued currency - it's a digital currency. Today we run a global marketplace for barter/trading online (since 1999). Check out and for consumers and business.

I have bartered for over 30 years
I have traded for hotel rooms, restaurants, dental care, eye care, maple syrup, jewelry, gasoline, gold, beef, literally everything you can imagine. I make a great radio interview also.

I use barter all the time, I trade with ITEX Barter in Toronto. They always have great purchase opportunities and I sell what I want, when I want, it’s such a great tool for me. You can check them out at and you’ll see what a great organization they are. I’ve sold so much and purchased vacations, business equipment, things for my home, appliances, residential and office furniture and more. I really recommend them!
