Seattle Based Trade Company Announces Grand Opening Party – Open to Business Owners


August 16, 2017 – Austin, Texas – Saturn Barter, a Seattle based trade Company for business owners, is pleased to announce it has expanded to the Austin, Texas market.


“Expanding into Austin means a great deal to us. The city has such a thriving business economy, and we look forward to supporting business owners with growth and operational cost savings. Our growing community includes some of the top entrepreneurs, creatives, dreamers and startups in the country; people who are growing their businesses through trading,” stated Kent Johnson, Owner and President of Saturn Barter Company.


Saturn Barter Company was founded in May of 2009 in the Greater Seattle, Washington area. Since then it has grown its community to over 2,000 unique members. The Austin market already has close to 125 members. The company specializes in providing a way for businesses to leverage trade deals for any and all services instead of paying in full cash. For example, a lawn care service business owner can charge and earn trade dollars for providing commercial lawn services to a realtor, and the lawn care service provider can spend those trade dollars at a restaurant that accepts Saturn currency. This system of trade transactions exists to be mutually beneficial for all parties involved. Further, businesses don’t have to trade directly in order to yield the value of saving on cash expenses.


“Members tell me how amazed they are at operational cost savings realized through collaborating with other Saturn members. I think one reason we have been so successful is we ask members for feedback on what products or services they need, and we make it our mission to find them and get them added as providers,” Johnson added.


Saturn is celebrating its Austin expansion with a grand opening launch party this Thursday, August 17th at Mercury Hall (615 Cardinal Lane) from 6:00 – 8:00 pm. The event is complimentary and open to business owners. Food and drinks as well as a Saturn Barter Company overview and networking will be provided.

Saturn is offering $1,000 in a trade line of credit to all existing Saturn members who attend the launch event, as well as any who join between now and the event. Saturn also provides its members referral incentives.
