Every Thursday, we’d like to spotlight a way that you can give back and help others, as well as have you share how to “think about others” and make a difference!
In honor of Veterans Day on Friday, we are sharing Coups For Troops with you today. If you ever wondered what to do with your expired coupons, now you have somewhere you can send them to AND helps others in the process! Coups For Troops was created by a stay-at-home mom that was using coupons to save money on her family. She wanted to support families by making it easier for them to save money by shipping coupons directly to their doors. Since commissaries overseas accept manufacturer’s coupons up to six months their past expiration date, your “old” coupons can help those military families.
It’s easy to get involved with Coups For Troops. You can visit their website and read their FAQ’s to find out the answers to the most popular questions. The best part is that you don’t have to sort or tally them before sending them (just make sure it only includes the acceptable coupons in the FAQ’s).
Here are the different ways of getting your expired coupons to the troops:
- Send it directly to a military family overseas by using their “Direct Mail” program – get matched to a specific family.
- Send it to a satellite location and they will take care of the rest.
- Drop off your coupons at a drop-off site and they will ship your coupons to recipients overseas.
To save money on shipping, you can also organize a get-together with your family and friends who coupon and consolidate your coupons into one package. This is also a great way to get your kids involved by having them help you cut out the expired coupons and explaining to them how it well help other families.
