What to Do with Expired Coupons

It’s the end of the month and this is a great time to go through your coupon holder and pick out those expired coupons.  If you have been wondering what to do with them, besides putting them in the trash, I have some information to share.

Did you know that members of the military stationed overseas can use expired coupons up to 6 months passed their expiration date at their local Commissaries?  If you have a lot of coupons that you hate to see go to waste, you can put them all into an envelope or box and mail to them.  There are a couple of ways you can do that:

  • You can visit the Overseas Coupon Program and select a base from their base list and “adopt” it.  Follow their instructions as to the steps you need to take to get your coupons to the adopted base of your choice.
  • You can also send your coupons to Coups for Troops a group based in NC that is dedicating their time to this noble cause.

Take time to check these resources and consider gifting military members with coupons you no longer can use.
