I know a good amount of us use coupons to maintain our frugal lifestyle. I also know that most of us are aware that military families overseas are able to use expired coupons, up to 6 months, at the base exchange. There are so many programs out there that offer to take your coupons for you and send them to bases all around the world to help out these families. I have to admit, as much as I love the idea of sending my expireds to my fellow military brethren, I get leery that they will have enough time to use the coupons once they are mailed, sorted and picked through by the sorting offices. That’s why I was so glad that Lesley from CouponsToTroops contacted me. Here is some information on their program:
It is our goal to spread awareness about overseas military families being able to use coupons that are expired, up to 6 months past the expiration. But it is also our goal to get coupons right into the hands of those military families as quickly as possible. We have a growing list of military families on our contact list who are interested in receiving coupons and we will match up anyone requesting a military family to send their coupons to. To request a family, all anyone has to do is send an email to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will put them in touch with a military family.
