WAIT! Don’t throw those expired coupons away!
When Stephanie, just your average SAHM, attended a coupon class, she learned that military families could use expired coupons overseas. Because coupons are not readily available to those military families serving overseas, commissaries accept expired manufacturer coupons up to 6 months past expiration.
Stephanie decided she wanted to get involved. She searched for a group to send her own expired coupons to, but found that the groups asked you to sort and tally your coupons or required a monetary donation. Stephanie started Coups For Troops to make donating your expired coupons easy and to get the word out about this effortless way to support our troops.
As of this summer (2011), Coupons for Troops sends coupons to close to 450 families spread out over ten countries.
