*FREEBIES* For Military Families including Phone Calls! Send *Expired* Coupons To Help!


Most restaurants and companies require some kind of identification showing that your in the military. Some might even ask for you to show up in your uniform or to just show your military ID. Other proof-of-service accepted by most outlets include a Veterans Organization Card (VFW, American Legion, etc.) DD214 discharge papers, Current Leave and Earnings Statement (LES) or a photo of you in uniform.

You will only be offered a discount at participating outlets because many of these companies are franchises, not all participate (yeah kind of crazy I know!) Call ahead to verify the following deals and make sure you find out what time they’ll be offering the discount.

Did you know that overseas military members can use expired coupons up to six months past their expiration date? Military families can get great use out of our expired coupons. Afterall, military families are usually only living on one income. Let’s give back to the ones who protect our family every day. Support one of these branches below!

Eligible Coupons:

  • Send only Manufacturer Coupons; Do NOT send store or restaurant 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.

If you would like to donate your coupons to one our adopted bases, please send your coupons to our volunteer, Amanda Brumbaugh, currently heading up our donations! Amanda packages many boxes each month for shipment overseas and takes care of the customs forms so you don’t have to!

Unfortunately, due to the mass number of packages received each month, those sent with insufficient postage must be returned to sender.

Thanks, The Krazy Coupon Lady!
