DON'T THROW THOSE EXPIRED COUPONS OUT!
In fact don't toss out any coupon you don't want to use....
Did you know that overseas military members can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date? Military families stationed overseas are often living on one income and money can be scarce.
Coupons To Troops is run by the American Legion Auxiliary Unit 171
And it services all Branches of the Military.
The Krazy Coupon Lady:
• Send only Manufacturer Coupons; Do NOT send store coupons.
• Coupons must be Clipped and Sorted into Food and Non-food (explained below).
• Do NOT send coupons that are over 30 days expired.
How do I sort the coupons?
Separate your clipped coupons into two categories: Food and Non-Food
Most military bases have 2 stores. One is called the “Commissary” which is a grocery store and the other is the PX or BX which is a department store. We therefore ask you to sort the coupons into “food” and “non-food” bundles so that they can more easily be placed in the correct venue once they arrive at the base.
Label the Bundles
Try to use a baggie to separate your coupons instead of paper clips or rubber bands.
What’s Food & Non-Food?
Here’s the rule of thumb: It’s food if it can be eaten by humans, is usually eaten by humans, and is normally eaten to provide calories. For example, dog & cat food would be “Non-Food,” but Ensure or Slim-Fast would be “Food.” Vitamins would be non-food. Chewing Gum and Mints are food.
Is there a minimum donation?
No! Please send any coupons you may have. We only ask that you mail them only once a month. It will just be easier business this way!
May my family or community organization adopt our own base?
Yes! If you prefer to send your coupons directly to the overseas military base of your choice, you can read all the details on how to do this at OCPnet.org.
Send them to:
KCL Overseas Coupon Program

Port Charlotte, FL 33981
You can also send coupons to any oversea’s ACS (Army Community Services) they accept and distribute all coupons. Deployed Military are able to use coupons up to 6 months expired.
