Every few months I go through all of my coupon inserts and pull out all of the expired coupons. It’s quite a stack. Rather than throwing them into the trash I do put them into the recycling bin which makes me feel a little bit better about the situation. I’ve heard for a while that I can donate my expired coupons and I just need to take the time to do this.
The Overseas Coupon Program serves military families by assisting you to forward manufacturer’s coupons to overseas military bases. The bundles of coupons are placed on tables, at the PX and Commissary, or handed out for use by military members and families on base. Military famlies can use them for up to six months after they expire.
To sign up to send coupons just visit the website, and click on Base Adoptions to browse the list of bases that you can mail your coupons to. After you choose a base, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org to let them know you will be participating. You can find more details and information.
The coupon packages are sent to APO/AFO addresses so you don’t have to worry about the cost of overseas shipping.
