End of the Year Expiration Dates

Sharing is caring!

We only have a day and a half left of 2010 – it seems like this year just flew by! The end of the year means that a number of coupons & deals are expiring, so make sure you’ve checked to see if there are any deals you want to take advantage of at the last minute!

Coupons & Rebates:

  • Many of the longer-lasting coupons will be expiring at the end of the year, so make sure to go thru your coupon binder now to see if there are any that you’re wanting to take advantage of before they expire.
  • You’ll want to clean out all your expired coupons now as there are going to be 5 coupon inserts this coming Sunday! Woo-hoo! You’ll need lots of room & I’d definitely encourage you to buy multiple papers this coming Sunday to take advantage of all those coupons!
  • Rebates – There are also a number of rebates expiring here on December 31st – make sure to go thru & see if you’ve bought all the items needed to qualify for your rebate. I also recommend sending your rebate as soon as you’ve finished acquiring the items so you don’t forget. Make copies of your rebate info before you send it, too, & keep it in a separate file so you can check on any you haven’t received in awhile.

Use for Expired Coupons:

Did you know that if your coupons are expired, military members stationed overseas can still use your coupons.  They can use the coupons at overseas military bases for up to 6 months past their expiration date. Wouldn’t this be a great time to package up all your expired coupons & send them to the Overseas Coupon Program?!

Group Buying Site Deals:

I just realized that I had several deals that I’ve bought thru the various group buying sites that are expiring on December 31, 2010.  So, I encourage you to go thru all the Group Buying sites that you’ve used & see if you have any deals that you can still take advantage of before they expire tomorrow.  My goal for the new year is to create an excel spreadsheet where I list all of the Group Buying sites & the deals I’ve bought along with the expiration dates.  This way none of those deals will be wasted {I’m embarrassed to admit that I had 3 deals I bought this year that I missed the expiration dates on. So sad. :( }

Here are a few of the deals that I found that are expiring on December 31st, 2010:

  • Rue La La $20 Credit (no longer available) – this new member credit will expire on 12/31/10 so make sure to check out what they have available right now to see if you want to use your credit.
  • Nordstrom Rack Groupon – you still have time to go spend those Nordstrom Rack Groupons. I have 1 left so we’ll be heading to the Supermall either tonight (if I can shake this migraine I’ve got) or tomorrow! Definitely not one I’m going to let go to waste!
  • Build-A-Bear Groupon– There were 2 different groupons available for Build-A-Bear a few months ago. One of them expires 12/31/10 & the other expires in March 2011. So, make sure to log into your account & see if yours is expiring. I had bought one for each of my girls for Christmas, so we had fun going earlier this week to create their special bears! We gave them their choice of a bear $15 or under.  Then they were also allowed to pick one outfit or other accessory. My older daughter picked a $15 bear & a rainbow/fairy dress.  And my younger daughter picked a $10 bear & a special chair for the bear. We ended up only having to pay an extra $5 for each of them by using the Groupon. And it was a fun adventure for them!
  • Personalized Story Book from Plum District
  • Room of Fashion (Shoes, Jewelry) from Tippr
  • CSN Lighting from Eversave (this one expires on 1/13/11)

Here is a list of some of the group buying sites that will have expirations on their deals:

  1. Mobba is a group buying deal, and a bunch of mine expire tomorrow. I’ve already gotten take-out sushi today for lunch just to use one of them up. :-)

  2. Thanks for the reminder!!! I totally forgot I had the nordstroms groupon :) guess I’m going shopping tonight lol…

  3. This is pretty random, but if you did the Hormel lunchmeat rebate-the one where you got a 5 dollar “credit,” card in the mail-those expire on 12/31.
