What to do with expired coupons? Coupons for Troops!

1 Jun

This is so neat and I’m glad I came across it at The Coupon Centsation.

Did you know that you can donate your expired coupons to the troops? Overseas military families can use expired manufacturer coupons for up to 6 months past the original expiration date! What a great way to help out another family with something that you are only going to throw in the trash anyways.

After doing a little more research, I also found a cool resource called Overseas Coupon Program that goes into detail just how you can donate your coupons.

More information here or where to actually send the expired coupons.

Lastly, for a complete list of other organizations that have coupon projects in place refer to Coupons To Troops.

The last week of the month, I always go through my coupon binder to make sure and use the coupons that I need before they expire, but I inevitably have a handful that just go in the trash and it always bums me out.  For all that our US military is doing for us, this seems like something small in return that we can do for them!

    Thanks for including a link to CouponsToTroops in your post. I did just want to add something that is not really clear on the website. We will happily help anyone that is looking for a military family to send their coupons to. We have an ever-growing list of families stationed on overseas bases that would love to receive coupons in their mail.

    Just send an email to admin@couponstotroops.com and let them know that you’d like to be put in touch with a military family and we’ll forward your email on, asking the family to reply to you, providing their mailing information.

    Thanks, Lesley
