Coupons for Troops

Feel free to blog about this program, link to this post, and use the button on your sidebar.

Coupons for Troops is a program I started in 2008. My goal is to provide expired and non-expired coupons to military families stationed overseas. The prices in overseas commissaries are significantly higher than those in the States and military families do not always have access to coupons in newspapers and inserts. Military commissaries overseas accept coupons up to six months past the expiration date.

Military Commissaries accept manufacturer coupons as well as internet printed coupons. The Commissary is a grocery store so only “grocery” coupons are needed. Families cannot use store specific coupons (ie Target, Walgreens, Kroger).

Those who participate in Coupons for Troops are assigned an overseas military family. Coupons, which do not need to be sorted, are then sent directly to the assigned family. All overseas military families have FPO or APO addresses so mailing coupons costs the same as if you were sending them stateside. You can send as many or as few coupons as you have available. Please only send coupons that have been expired 3 months of less in order to give the families time to sort and use the coupons.

If you are a military family stationed overseas and would like to receive coupons we would love to add you to the mailing list.

If you would like to participate in the program you can find specific details and a sign up here.

Locks of Love

If you are looking for a different way spread some love on Valentine’s Day how about getting a haircut? There are many organizations that accept donated hair and use it to make wigs for people with cancer or other diseases that cause hair loss. It is also a great way to teach our young ladies about giving to those who are in need. Some salons will give you the haircut for free if you are donating the hair. Don’t forget to check with the organization in order to meet their requirements for hair donation.
