Don't Throw Away Your Expired Coupons - Send Them To Military Families!

I support Troopons: Coupons for Troops

Coupons can be used on overseas military bases for up to six months past their expiration date.

Coupons they can use:
  • Save 'em whether they're active or expired! We’ll send both.
  • Only manufacturer’s coupons can be used.
  • They can be from the newspaper, dispensers in grocery stores, tear-pads, and elsewhere, as long as they state "Manufacturer's Coupon" on them.
  • The most important coupons our troops need are for food supplies.
  • Baby supplies are 2nd priority, though common household goods help troops, too.

Coupons we unfortunately can't use:

  • No assistance vouchers.
  • No food stamps or the like.
  • No store coupons. For example, we can’t use store coupons like Walmart, Kroger, Safeway, Walgreens, etc.
  • No restaurant coupons.
  • No coupons that have been printed from the Internet.
I did not receive any form of compensation for sharing this information.


    1. I never knew this, I'm glad this is available to military families and I will start saving my past due coupons. Thanks for sharing.

    2. I'm a little confused considering that you have included the same information under both what you CAN send and what you CANNOT send. However, this is great to know. A couple of my friends from school have gone to join the Marines and the US Army, so I'm glad I know this now so I can help them! Thanks for the post.

    3. Thanks for letting me know about this. My step-son is in the Navy and stationed in Japan. So as a proud parent of a US soldier Im happy to hear there is this program to help military families! Thanks!

    4. This is very interesting. I plan on sharing it with some military moms I share a coupon chat with. They have never mentioned this so I'm wondering if they even know!

    5. I had heard that military could use expired coupons but I never understood the rules and regs on it so this is helpful to know. How great that you can send off your old coupons and have them be put to good use!
