    I got my newest coupons today from save.ca and I was surprised to see they both expire on May 31st. That leaves one week to find a sale to use them. It was for .75 off selected products (inc hamburger helper) and $1.00 off old el Paso kits. I was so happy to get both of these. Does the manufacturer decide the expiry or does save.ca decide? Either way, it is going to be tough to have these coupons on my WL since they will expire before I receive them. Did anyone get a later expiry for these coupons?

    I am looking for quick trades for my pre-surgery stock up!

    I would guess manufacturer decides when the expiry date is since they reimburse the store and pay a handling fee to the stores taking these coupons.

    I got a few this week that are expiring in less than 2 weeks. A shame.

    Mine came with a really short expiry too, and instead of the $1 old el paso, I received a .75 on any. (not complaining, but was looking forward to using it)

    Mine were May 31 too! Although what I used them on was Hamburger Helper, on for 2/$4 at WM. I also had 2-$3 Hamburger coupons from past boxes so i got 2 HH and 2 meat for $3 And these boxes also had more $3 meat coupons on them!

    I guess I am not the only one! At first I thought it was a mistake. I used my $0.75 one on Nature Valley bars at NF that were $1.99. I am hoping to use the Old El Paso one this wknd at Food Basics if they still have the kits for $3.00.

    I received my Gen Mills coupon on May 30 with a May 31 expiry. Shame, I didn't have the time that night to use it.
