Q: Expired coupons - Trash or Treasure?
A: For U.S. Military families who are stationed on overseas military bases, the answer is undoubtedly Treasure!!
Anyone that knows me will tell you that I'm a huge advocate for sending expired and unwanted manufacturer's coupons overseas to U.S. military families, where they can use those coupons for up to 6 months past their expiration date.
www.CouponsToTroops.com, I am always receiving emails from families and groups around the country asking for my help in putting them in contact with an overseas military family that they can send their coupons to, and I'm more than happy to help.
I do have quite a few military contacts on my contact list, so it hasn't been a problem for me to put people in touch with an overseas family until now. As of right now, I've got 12 military families who have either recently moved back to the States or will be moving back soon, so they no longer are in need of coupons. And because of these families moving back, I've also have the 50+ people back here who have been mailing to them, who are now going to be needing new names to mail their coupons to.
I am waiting to hear back from the others on my list to see how much more they can each handle receiving, but I know that it will be best to add some new names to my list, so I hopefully won't find myself in this predicament again in a few months.
So I'm asking for you help - if you have any family members or friends who are currently stationed on an overseas military base who would be interested in receiving coupons from families back here in the U.S. please have them contact me.
Just so you know how I do this, when I receive an email from someone looking for someone to mail their coupons to, I pick a name off my contact list and forward the email to the the military family and then they reply, providing their mailing information. For privacy and security reasons, I do no give out anyone''s address unless I have been given permission to do so on their behalf.
I cannot even begin to tell you how much I would appreciate your help with this!!!
