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 on June 30th (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 hcwsbp@gmail.com 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 Troops through 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.

    Tracie,
    Thanks again for sending your readers in CouponsToTroops’ direction again this month. Last month your mention brought in over 100 of your generous readers requesting help in getting in touch with a military family to mail their coupons to!!! In the past week, we’ve had A LOT of new military families signing on with us to receive coupons, and from what I’ve already seen coming into my email box, I know we’ll be able to help a lot of the families!!!

    I’ll be handling the requests as quickly as I can, so keep them coming everyone!!!
