Overseas Military Coupon Program ~ May 2017 ~ #MayIsMilitaryAppreciationMonth

If you have ever wanted to show your appreciation for the military, here is something you can do…send them your expired manufacturer’s coupons.

On May 10, 2017 a package containing $5,447.10 in expired coupons was sent to our adopted military base in Yokosuka, Japan.

This makes a total of $12,868.75 so far for the year 2017.  Since July 2015 our total is now 31,759.90.  THANK YOU to all who donated.

If you are interested in adopting your own military base or if you’d like to donate coupons via this blog please go to Overseas Military Coupon Program for information.

If you have any questions about the program you can email me at pluckingofmyheartstrings@gmail.com


Don’t have any coupons to send but would like to help? Please consider making a small donation. Donations will be used for the cost of mailing coupons overseas. Thank you.

      • Well, since I don’t use the coupons, but I GET them – I am already making stacks in baggies. Plus, I did post this on FB because it is a GREAT idea, but I had never heard of it. So . . . sure . . . I tried to let people know. Plus, I will do it. I will send all my coupons. After I read this I was so excited to get my stack of coupons that I usually just put in the recycle bin. But then when I went through them most of them are store coupons. But I did keep the ones that were not.

        Thanks, again for posting this!!!

        • Thank you for posting about this on your Facebook and for deciding to participate. I think many people would be willing to do this if they knew about it.

  1. Wow, I think this is a kind and amazing offer if gesture to support our troops! I love it!
    I’ll definitely have to keep this in mind for my husbands own military base in Hawaii, US!

    • Since Hawaii is in the US I am not sure if the commissary there would take the expired coupons, but it doesn’t hurt to find out. Thank your husband for me for his service.
