why my topic was deleted?

I'm trying to send coupons over there because ya'll can use them, yet poof my post is gone.

anywho, if someone who runs a coupon swap can shoot me an email: kristimtownsend@yahoo.com i have some ladies from around camp pendleton collecting unwanted and expired coupons to send to you guys. I just want them to go to a group of people:)

After watching the coupon lady show, man i really don't get the big idea of coupons now. They buy crap they don't need to just spend money? So they can save? UGH people

people are mean 

**Ashley** --- 9 years ago -

MG, way to be a d!ck. I am amazed how some of you will sit here and say how rude and nasty americans are but you are the same exact fvcking way.

She is from Pendleton and was just trying to help out. Is there a need to be so rude? Ash logans Mommy, they probably deleted it because they considered it "spam". Everything is spam to them. They tell you to go post on OYS because that is the place for it. However, they will start threads about postings on OYS and how they should not be posted.

ME?
No i just don't get the big idea of buying 45 bottles of mustard just to save a few pennies.. There is one lady on that show thats paper towels tucked under her kids beds..
Plus the commissary's here have bags and bags of coupons, and so does the family housing....

I see OU hasn't changed. Nothing dies here. I say keep posting in this thread until it gets deleted, too! 

Casey --- 9 years ago -

i didn't see it as spam because she was giving something away for free... not trying to sell us some crap. I don't particularly care to do a coupon swap, so i just don't read the thread... 

ALEM --- 9 years ago -

anywho, I just sent 2 boxes over there. I've started collecting for the next round out here, and i'll probably mail those out beginning of July or Mid July depending on how many we have. They aren't all necessarily expired....some that i just know my family wont use and printables. occasionally there may be some target printables in there (sorry). Either way, its money you can save on your groceries!

Plus the commissary's here have bags and bags of coupons, and so does the family housing.... 
My husbands the only one who has been to oki, not me. I figured if someone else can use them why not send them! either way, i have 2 people who are going to be getting boxes in the next few days!

If it sat for 12 days, was there really a reason to delete it? Why not just let it die?

Because it wasn't going to just die. She kept bumping so that it wouldn't. 

so you'd rather me keep making new threads instead of bumping one?


so BUMP! for the next round! 

SinCityGRL --- 9 years ago -

She isn't sending them over so ya'll can be the next batch of crazy hoarding couponers!!! She isn't expecting you to buy "45 bottles of mustard".

Some of us stateside just knew ya'll could use the expired ones...if you aren't into couponing...good on ya..move along :) If you are...we are collecting them for ya!! :)

They buy crap they don't need to just spend money?


Oh but they aren't spending money. Many places have awesome sales on items and when they double or triple a coupon they get overages on each item which causes them to have a credit towards other purchases they don't have coupons for. That is how they can walk out of there with $1000 worth of food for nearly nothing.

My husband has become a couponer and I see the benefits. We really are saving a lot of money.

We have some coupons that expire soon if anyone would like those as well. Just message me.

That makes sense. Buying 346 boxes of pasta my husband and I will never eat doesn't. I watched one show where the lady bought like 1000 candy bars. WTF if you are eating all those. 

Becky --- 9 years ago -

ash logans mommy ~ I had emailed you but never heard back :0( 

Casey --- 9 years ago -

problem is, if you keep doing that... he'll probably ice bx you so you can't post at all.

this. does the commisary do double and triple coupons? 

Balls To The Wall --- 9 years ago -

No. You can use same coupons on multiple items, but you can not double them. 

Casey --- 9 years ago -

lame. 

Balls To The Wall --- 9 years ago -

They explain why on the commissary website. I am just too lazy to look it up. 

Balls To The Wall --- 9 years ago -

Okay. I did it for you because you're awesome. It is because they sell things at cost and do not make a profit.

Buying 346 boxes of pasta


Yeah, I don't think we would ever be that extreme but most people that do donate it. One couple had purchased over $1000 worth of stuff and didn't pay a dime and donated the entire purchase to a shelter.

The biggest purchase we have made is 20 boxes of pasta for a $1.80. Hubby just preordered 40 bottles of purex though because he has some amazing coupons and they are on sale. I like the idea of having stock of items we use most often but I am not for buying shit we don't use.

The worst that can happen, they ice box me and hit icebox user and remove recent comments & delete the thread. 3 days later, I can post a new thread! Lol. Shit happens!

Becky. My hubby was in the process of coming home from deployment so I just looked at my email and took the first 2 that gave me their address. Ill continue to rotate the addresses as well. Ill ask the gals as well if I can share their emails with people who have emailed me too :)

If you'd like to join our coupon swap you can. while this is at camp pendleton. we generally talk about everything coupon related:) plus you can put in requests for specific coupons:) 

ALEM --- 9 years ago -

I sent out 2 boxes. i'm getting together another box to send over. i'm just rotating addresses.

Where do you think all of those coupons come from? It's from people in the states sending them over.
