How We Work

10 years ago, Virgin Airlines' Voyeur magazine said, "Trade to Travel (TTT) is a trend that will change the way people travel, it is an up-market 'you wish' kind of experience. Swaps with TTT are on everyone's wish list."  Now we not only want to change the way people travel, we also want to change the way people trade!

For 30 years, we've arranged excellent exchanges for owners of luxury vacation properties and exceptional vacation rentals for celebrities like Tommy Lee Jones and Robert Downey Jr.  Now we're delighted to make it possible for everyone everywhere to trade everything using points or cash.


Our secure messaging application puts you directly in touch with your fellow members, business owners and entrepreneurs, providers of all sorts of products and services.   You can ask questions, make offers and purchases, arrange deals and partnerships amongst yourselves, etc.

Direct and Indirect Trades:  Members may swap with each other directly (for example, trade apples for oranges) or use points or cash.


Points = Dollars.  Each point represents one dollar of trade value.  Points never expire.

We charge no fee or commission.  The only time you pay us anything is if you would like to purchase points to increase your trade account balance.  

When you purchase points, we double your money by giving you double points.  For example, the cost to purchase 2000 points would be $1000.  

In other words, you save 50% when using purchased points to buy goods and services!


Members may pay for purchases on our website using points or PayPal.  Or members may contact Sellers directly to pay with cash, check, wire transfer, Bitcoin, Venmo, Google Pay, Apple Pay, etc.

FreeTrades is a vetted Exchange Club.  Members agree to deal honestly and do nothing illegal using our website or our name.  If a member does anything dishonest or illegal using our site, their membership will be terminated and their points will all be forfeited.  This helps assure members that you are safe when using our exchange.

Our Promise:  We will donate all income from FreeTrades to charities and causes which help save and protect our precious planet and people.
