Did you know that military families that are overseas can use expired manufacturer coupons for up to six months after the expiration date?
Sometimes it is easy for all of us to complain that we don’t have a coupon for this deal or a coupon for that deal becuase we didn’t get enough newspapers. Have you ever stopped to think that many overseas military families do not have the luxury of even getting the newspaper? The good news about this is that there is something we can do to help them!
The Overseas Coupon Program serves military families by assisting all of us to forward manufacturer coupons to overseas military bases. The bundles of coupons that are sent over are then placed on tables, at the PX and Commissary, or handed out for use by military members and families on base. This in turn helps the family save valuable dollars and stretch their budget!
How can I participate?
Head on over to the OCP webstie and read the Base Adoption Informaiton Page. After you have done that you will be able to select an overseas military base to adopt and fill out the Adoption Form. Once you have that done you can start sending your coupons to the address provided next to your adopted base! It is that simple!
Please note that they will not contact you after you fill out the adoption form. After you have completed that step, you are good to go! Make sure to check-out their tips page too…it has a lot of great informaiton on how they would like the coupons shipped.
(Thanks for the heads up on this Carrie!)
