First of the Month: Send Your Expired Coupons to US Military

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

It is the first of June.  That means it is time to clear out those coupons that expired May 31st (and earlier).  However, don’t throw them into the trash or your recycling bin.  You have the perfect opportunity to pay it forward to overseas military families. 

Military families who live across our oceans can use these coupons for up to 3 or more months AFTER the expire here in the states.   This is certainly a great way to support the members of our armed forces by helping their families save money just like we do.

I previously shared a site called Overseas Coupon Program.  This is a great program and a way to help, but I know many of you would rather have a connection and personally help a family.  For you there is another option. 

Coupons To Troops is another great initiative that was started to help get these coupons to those who need them.  It is so simple to do this program.  Simply send an email to and ask them to provide you with a family’s name.  They will in turn send this to you.   Place your coupons into a flat envelope or mailer and mail them as you have them ready to ship out!    You can stay connected with Coupons To Troopsthrough their Facebook page.  It is a great way to ask questions or even leave a comment to share that you mailed a package out to help another family.

    This is Lesley from CouponsToTroops and I have to say that I am just blown away by the amount of emails I’ve been getting from PennyPinchinMom’s readers, looking for help in getting in touch with a military family who is stationed overseas.

    So while I’m taking a short break from working my way through the emails, I just wanted to say that the generosity of you all is amazing and I’m honored to be able to help you with this and I know that the military wives we work with are also honored to be on the receiving end of your generosity!
