Join Us in Operation Expiration!

Overseas military bases will accept expired grocery coupons up to six months from their expiration date as well as non-expired coupons.  We just recently learned of an overseas military base that needs coupons, and they  have given us permission to share their information with you.  For the cost of postage, you can help our military families save big every month!

PLEASE NOTE: Don't do this!!!  Some people have been sending coupons that are expired PAST the 6 month limit, and the military base personnel are spending hours sorting through huge boxes of unsorted coupons to find usable coupons.

Thank you for posting this! I've been asking and asking on the boards about military families using expired coupons but my last source seems to have left the club.  I'll be putting my coupons aside and sending them out when I have a good sized pile :)

Thank you for the information.  I just sent Donna 1 pound of clipped coupons today.  Filled a small Priority Mail box to the brim.  :)

Hi all,

Just want to add that there are a couple people in the RAOK forum who always take expired coupons to send to miltary bases. It's a wonderful way to help out and have them  used when we no longer can. A big thanks to all who do this!

Here's the RAOK post-

These members collect expired coupons to send to military bases. Coupons should be no more than 3 months past date, please. Just PM them for their address and send a bunch when you can. Much easier than posting here and waiting for someone to request them. This is a great help to our military families.

Thanks for posting this, being a military spouse I love helping out our troops! This is great for all those coupons that I would otherwise recycle!
