Donate Expired Coupons to Our Military Troops Overseas

What do you do with your expired coupons? Do you just toss them? Or put them in the recycle bin? Have you ever thought to donate expired coupons to our Military Troops overseas? Most people don’t know it, but at the overseas commissaries, our troops can use manufacturer coupons up to six months after they have expired. Prices are higher overseas and the military families don’t get coupons in newspapers like we do over here in the United States. So they really appreciate getting our expired coupons to help them save some money.

Tips to Donate Expired Coupons:
  1. Coupons need to be clipped and sorted into food/non-food. (Pet food/medicine would be non-food. Gum, candy, Ensure shakes would be food items) Clipping them allows more to be shipped in the package without having to pay postage on all the ads and extra paper that are in the inserts.
  2. Avoid paper clips/rubber bands- zippered baggies work great.
  3. Please only send Manufacturer coupons, not store coupons.
  4. Try to keep what you are sending to about 30 days expired, as it can take a long time for them to get to the families that need them.
  5. If you are shipping directly overseas, and your envelope is over 16 oz, or you are sending a box, you will need to fill out customs form 2976-A.
Places to send your expired coupons:

coups for troops This is my favorite of the sites I found to donate expired coupons. There is a form that you can fill out and they will send you the name and address of a family to can send your coupons to directly. There is also a list of addresses in the States that you can send you coupons to and they will get them overseas for you.

Overseas coupon program At this site you are able to “adopt” a particular base that is in need of coupons.

Remember our military because we will have many coupons expiring at the end of the year. If you file, like I do, it may take you a little while to clip the coupons to ship them. Our soldiers are fighting for our freedom. I can give them a few hours of my time every couple of months and so can you! Let’s all show our support to our military and their families.
