Send Expired Coupons to Military Overseas

Send Expired Coupons to Military Overseas

I’ve been getting this question a lot lately, so I thought I’d go ahead and do a little post on the subject. A few readers have asked me about sending expired coupons overseas to military families to use.  Yes, those stationed overseas can use coupons up to 6 months past the expiration date at the Commissary and Exchanges, how cool is that!?!  So, don’t toss out your old coupons – “recycle” them and ship them to troops and/or family members instead.

A couple of overseas coupon programs that I like are Coups For Troops, Support Our Troops and The Overseas Coupon Project (OCP).   Both allow you to mail your coupons (expired and not expired) to them and they will do the rest.  But they do ask that you have your coupons clipped and sorted, to save time and energy, since they are volunteers and get tons of piles of coupons every day.

Quick Tips

  • clip and separate your coupons from food and non-food
  • label your bags/envelopes
  • food coupons are preferred the most, while baby coupons are second (diapers, wipes, formula etc.)

    Thank you for the info. I go through my coupons and end up with lots of expired ones. Is there other ways to save at the commissary. Do they double coupons or price match?

    I have a friend in Germany that I save all my expired coupons for. I mail them to her once every couple months and the ones she doesn’t use she shares with her friends.
