Did you know that you can send your expired coupons to the military bases? They can use them at the Commissary or Base Exchange. So, you can clean out your coupon stash and support out troops by sending your coupons that are expired, or even that you don’t use, overseas to U.S. Military Bases. They can use coupons up to 6 months past the expiration date.
It’s very easy to get started sending your expired coupons….
- Sort your coupons into boxes or envelopes by food and non food (make sure they are properly labeled). Please make sure that they expired within the past 2 months. Military can use coupons expired up to 6 months, but they will need time to process, distribute and use those coupons
- Visit the Overseas Coupon Program Base List and pick which base you would like to adopt (make sure you pick one that says Please Adopt Us!)
- Read through the Adoption Page’s frequently asked questions
- Fill out the form to adopt the base. It is instant and you will not be contacted to confirm your adoption.
- Mail your coupons to the base.
You can also send your coupons to individuals if you happen to know someone who is stationed overseas.
