Please Note: Due to the Coronavirus Pandemic we have made the difficult decision to put our Military Family Coupon Project on hold until we receive the go ahead from the bases we serve. To all of our wonderful volunteers, THANK YOU for your continued participation and support!!!

Military Family Coupon Project - U.S. Air Force

Base Lists Updated Monthly @ GrocerySavingTips.com
Note: "CC" stands for Coupon Coordinator

Please do not overwhelm any one particular base with mass amounts of coupons. They will be unable to process and distribute them and if too many coupons are received on a regular basis they will drop out of all coupon programs completely. When we started our project in 2007 there was only one other website sending expired coupons to military families overseas, now there are potentially hundreds or even thousands. As always, we recommend rotating the bases you send coupons to on a regular basis. 

Please do NOT form new coupon groups. Our mailing lists will continue to be maintained for current volunteers.

Our Current Base Address Lists:

*  U.S. Army  *  U.S. Air Force  *  U.S. Navy & Marines  *

"Greetings from Iwakuni! On behalf of our military community, I would like to thank you for your generous donation of coupons. Your coupons help our military families save thousands of dollars a month. We are truly grateful. We would be extremely grateful if you would continue to send coupons to Iwakuni. If possible, we would like to be part of a rotation with one of our sister offices. NMCRS Guam (address listed above) is currently experiencing a shortage in coupon donations and has requested that we help support their need. If you could alternate between our two offices, we would greatly appreciate it. Thank you, again, for your support." CC

"Thanks so much for sending coupons. Life can be very expensive here in Guam. Without your support, we would be hard pressed to get coupons here." CC

"Just wanted to take a moment and let you know how grateful we all are over here in Guam. Thanks so very much for all you do, it is most appreciated." CC

"We are still accepting grocery coupons that are sent to us. Thank you so much for your support of military families. The time and effort you've put into sending coupons out is greatly appreciated." CC

"Thank you so much for sending coupons to those of us who live overseas. It is very much appreciated and your coupons will reach multiple families. I hope the new year is treating you well. Thanks again!" CC

"Thank you so much for your generous coupon donations. I was lucky enough to get them. I helped go through the coupons and put them together to give out to our families! Every little bit helps around here. Thank you so much!!" CC

"I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the coupons that you send to us at Marine and Family Programs here at Camp Courtney in Okinawa, Japan. The military service members and their families really appreciate your efforts in helping them to save some money, especially since Japan can be expensive and our shopping options are limited.  We have volunteers at our center who receive and sort the coupons for others to pick up at the center and then use.  I also take coupons with me when I give presentations on our services to incoming military families so they know where they can find some coupons. Everyone really loves being able to receive some coupons. Thank you again for supporting our service members and their families!" CC

"This is (CC) from the Airman and Family Readiness Center at Kadena. I wanted to send this email to tell you thank you for taking the time to send your coupons to us here at Kadena. I can tell you they are being put to very good use and we appreciate everything you have done and continue to do for us. Thank you again for your continued support of the troops and their families at Kadena AB." CC

"Thank you so much for all the wonderful coupons that you have sent us!!! The military men and women who serve at Kadena Air Base Japan and their families are so grateful!!!...Your efforts in cutting and sorting the coupons provides a great service to our military families. We have many families each day who come in to receive free coupons for their shopping provided by your organization...Our base has over 5,000 service members assigned as well as their families. It means so much that people back home take the time to care and help out our soldiers, sailors, airmen and marines!!! Thank you again for all that you do." CC

"Hello Michelle! My name is Roxanne, my family and I are stationed here in Okinawa, Japan. I went to the family readiness center on Kadena Air base and they gave me the envelope you sent. I wanted to thank you for taking the time out to send them. I went through the envelope and those I would not be using I passed along to another fellow couponer :) Thank you again!" CC

Yokota Coupons
C/O Airman & Family Readiness Center
374th FSS/FSFR Unit 5119
APO, AP 96326-5123

We have received many thank you letters from this base! Here's a sample, condensed to remove repeated information.

"... If you’d like, in the future you could separate the coupons by food and non-food.  We’ve even received coupons from groups where they’ve been sorted even further (within) the food and non-food categories.  We’re appreciate of your efforts and ask you continue in whatever manner works best for all of you."

"On behalf of the service men and women and their families stationed at Yokota Air Base in Japan, thank you very much AGAIN for the coupons... You do not know the blessings the coupons bring to base families, especially the families with younger children.  It is always a pleasure seeing their smiling faces when they leave with a bag of coupons.  Please keep remembering us! Again, thank you for remembering all of us who serve and have served, and may you continue with your kind efforts. May you be blessed because of your service." 

"Your coupons found their way to me and my wife at the Yokota Food Pantry.  We’re going through them and looking for coupons we could use to purchase items for our base food pantry, which is open to all ranks and civilians regardless of rank or need.  The remaining coupons will be placed in an area of the Pantry for patrons to sort through before shopping at the base commissary.  Your separation by expiration month was most helpful.  Please continue sending coupons to us for they are a wonderful, money saving resource for all base families."

"Our Food Pantry is now the central depository of coupons and we continually separate them in to various categories.  Because of our limited staff, we send about a quarter of all coupons received to the commissary for their use and placement. Again, thank you for remember all of us who serve and have served, and may you continue with your kind efforts."

"We received a package of coupons from your contributors today... Your coupons make a wonderful difference at the commissary cash register in a place where the yen to dollar rate makes shopping off base cost prohibitive. I wanted to take a moment to thank you for hosting this program. The fact that your contributors pay the postage to send their coupons to us does not go unnoticed, to say nothing of the time/effort... Thank you very much, on behalf of our family and many others!"

We are happy to report Alconbury has been added back to our coupon program. Please note, coupons for this base must be placed in bags so they are easy to distribute. Thank you!

"We recently received some coupons from you. I wanted to let you know that I have added them to our coupon bins in the building; the community certainly LOVES them. As long as the coupons are placed into bags (just as they were), we will gladly accept coupons any time." CC

"We wanted to extend our gratitude to you sending valued coupons to our military families stationed at our base. Your coupons are appreciated and will be used frequently at the base commissary. These coupons save us thousands of dollars each year when used frequently and truly make life living overseas more affordable. We truly can’t thank you enough for your support. At this time, our base gives out coupons as fast as they come in. We do not need to have them sorted at all because we like to give each person a variety of coupons. When we receive the coupons in our office, we put an assortment into a gallon sized plastic bag and distribute them that way. Although we appreciate and respect the countless hours you could potentially spend sorting the coupons, we ask that you do not sort the coupons—unless you would like to. Most people return the coupons that they don’t personally need and we recycle them back out into the base community. Again, many thanks for all you do in making a difference at our base. Thanks a million!" - CC  (Whew! Thanks for letting us know that you can still use the coupons we send even when we are not able to presort them into food and non-food stacks. That's a huge relief, especially for the packages we just sent out this month! :o)

PLEASE HELP US KEEP THIS LIST UP TO DATE:

If you have an address that we need to add, update or remove please contact the editor at michelle@grocerysavingtips.com -- with the country and address as we have listed above. Although we do not post all the letters we receive we do try to include recent messages that would be helpful.

SHARING:

You can also help us by linking to our web site but PLEASE do not try to copy our list of addresses as this information is updated on a MONTHLY  basis.  If you copy and post the list somewhere else it will be incorrect within a very short time and that will not help our families overseas.  Trust us, this is a lot harder to maintain than it may look.  Our staff has been working on this Military Family Coupon Project for many years and we do our best to make sure our list is up to date every month.  Helping families save money on groceries is what we do! :o)
