Hi everyone! I just began volunteering for Coups for Troops. If you'd like to get your unwanted or expired coupons to the men and women serving our country I'd love to have them. PM me if you'd like to send. Thanks in advance!! smiley

Ashley, here are some questions that people may wonder about before sending you coupons, so you might want to post answers here:

- how far past the expiration date can you accept coupons?
- do coupons need to be clipped to be sent to you, or will you accept the entire coupon supplement, should people prefer to send them that way?

Troops overseas can use the coupons up to 6 months after expiration, but in past we have been told to send them no more than 60-90 days past expiration to be sure the organization can get them to their destination in plenty of time for the military and family members to use them.

Can they use internet coupons -such as the ones that you print from coupons.com?  Sometimes I print some that I don't end up using.

I can accept clipped coupons or entire supplements. Any help is appreciated. :)
