2nd chance for coupon recipients

March 25, 2009|TIMES WIRE REPORTS

People who received digital TV converter box coupons but let them expire can now apply for new ones.

The recent stimulus package put more money into the coupon program, letting the National Telecommunications and Information Administration give households with expired coupons another chance.

Each household can apply for two $40 coupons that cover most of the cost of converter boxes. Although 26 million coupons have been redeemed, 17 million have gone unused and expired after three months.
