Shelly brings up a great point regarding commissary shopping.

I have become a HUGE fan of the tear-off coupons that are often hanging on the shelf in the commissary. Very frequently they will show up WHILE the item is on sale, producing an awesome deal – and of course you can get multiples that way without having to buy multiple newspapers. I always watch for them now. Our commissary had tear-offs for the sale Pop-Tarts and for the sale BigG cereals. Don’t forget the coupon table near the entrance to your commissary too. Again the best part is if you find a good coupon, you can have multiples! It often seems the coupons are released during or near the sale window for an item.

Currently there is a tear-off coupon at the Ft. Meade commissary for a free gallon of milk if you buy 3 Kelloggs cereals. Some Kelloggs cereal is on sale for $1.99 a box. This could be a great deal if combined with cereal coupons.

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.
