I have several coupons for Herbal Essences shampoo/hair color that all expire on the 31st. But I don't know of any sales! I really really want to use the coupons but I hate buying those things without a sale. Argh!

I ended up with tons of extra coupies too with the dumpster diving. I hate when good coupons go bad. They deserve a wonderful burial...

We'll build them a tiny funeral pyre. And sing dirges while they burn.

You can send expired coupons to military bases, they let some commissary's use them, and the people stationed overseas can use them too.

Well... if my mom can take them in (she's an employee at the post office on the base), then you can send them to me, and I'll give them to her... if you want. But I need to find out, first, if she can do that...

I would totally send you some...I didn't post my 8/31 expiring coupons bc I wasn't sure if people would get them in time to use, but I'll make a post later in the coupon trading subforum.

Do you want all expired ones? I'll definately send you the 8/31 ones I know I'm not going to use.

For the Herbal Essence ones, they are $2.48 each at Walmart and Target so if you use the coupons it makes the bottles $1 a piece which is pretty good. I bought a bunch like that.

I *believe* my commissary takes expired. They used to anyway. I need to ask them if they still do. If not I know the Airmens Attic takes them to send overseas.

Thanks for the info. I haven't gotten shampoo at Walmart for so long that I didn't know how much it is. I think I'll do that.

There is an address somewhere for the overseas coupon program. I don't remember it off the top of my head. Just Google expired coupons+military bases and you should get the right page. I'll find it later if I remember.
