    Just read this on another site and thought it important to share

    FYI... Something AMAZING all you couponers will love this!~ If you send us your expired Canadian coupons we can send them to a military group in the United States that then sends them to military families ....love THIS!

    operationexpiration.net

    So just to be double sure someone sent an email about it to the address on the website.
    ...
    email reply back and here it is :

    Thanks for posting this! I also wonder if we have any Canadian military folks on SC who can tell us if this is a possibility for Canadian military families on bases here and overseas.

    Nope. The coupons are sent to families to be used at the PX. The PX and Canex are too very different animals when it comes to shopping selection

    Canada just doesn't have as many families posted overseas these days. The German bases closed in the 1990s. There are a few families in the UK, Belgium, and Germany. The vast majority of overseas postings are unaccompanied.

    In Canada, we live in your neighbourhoods. I can honestly say I haven't set foot in a Canex this century.

    To support your Canadian troops and their families, check into MFRCs to see what is needed or useful.

    Canadian troops do not accept coupons like this. I know because I personally looked into it.

    The offer in this thread is American troops only.

    Military Family Resource Centres. Every base has one. Edmonton's is huge. The base church's used to operate food banks.

    The military tends to look after it's own when it knows families are having problems.

    I see, unfortunately Canada does not have a coupon exhange program like in the USA because we would want the Canadians to have this advantage but if the US can use the coupons I think thats just fine instead
