Donate your expired coupons to be used by military families overseas

Overseas Expired Coupon Program

Don’t throw out those expired coupons!  Manufactuer’s coupons can be used up to 6 months past their expiration date by military personnel overseas.  Visit the Overseas Coupon Program website to select a base and fill out the adoption form and you’ll be contacted with the mailing information for that base.  They ask that you sort the coupons into “food” and “non-food” and try to keep the coupons to no older than a couple of months to allow time for the coupons to arrive at the base, go through sorting and allow the families time to use them.  I cleared out my coupon folder and had $900 worth of coupons to send!  This is an easy way to help others and only costs you the postage to mail it.  Military bases are considered US territory so you pay the same postage as you would to mail something with the United States.
