I received a few questions about the Expiration Dates of coupons so I wanted to address them here.

  1. If a coupon says it expires on the 10th, can you still use it on the 10th?
    Answer – The expiration date is the last day that you can use that coupon so if it expires on the 10th, yes you can still use it until the end of the day on the 10th
  2. Can I use an expired coupon for even a few days after it expires?
    Answer – From my experiences, some stores will take coupons that have expired just a few days.  But this is rare and will differ from store to store.  Check with the store manager to find out.  I’ve found a lot of stores will except Store Coupons that have expired but again each store is different.
  3. What can I do with my expired coupons?
    Answer – Recycling is one thing but overseas on military bases, expired coupons can be used up to 3 months (I believe that’s the number) after they have expired. There are lots of places that you can hook up with to send them to a family or group of families. This is especially great when the FREE item coupons expire before you get a chance to use them.

Do you have a question or comment about expired coupons? I’d love to hear them.
