State Fair of Texas coupons don't expire. Really!
So, yep, you can take last year's coupons, or the coupons from long before that, and they will be valid anytime you visit the State Fair of Texas, now or in the future.
These coupons are like the forever stamps of the State Fair of Texas.
The fine print: It's OK if your coupons aren't all the same color, confirms State Fair of Texas spokeswoman Karissa Condoianis. And it's OK if your coupons clearly say "2017" on the front, like they did last year. This year's coupons will continue to be worth 50 cents each in the future.
So next time you're ambling out of the State Fair of Texas on closing weekend, with just seven coupons in hand, you don't have to waste them on a game at the Midway or buy a random bottle of water for the drive home. Stash 'em in a drawer, try not to forget they're there, and pull out those coupons in the fall of next year. They're worth something!
While we're talking about saving money at the State Fair of Texas ...
