Coming Soon - Commissary Rewards Card
Do you need another great reason to shop at the commissary? In addition to saving an average of 30% or more, the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) is introducing a commissary rewards card!
Commissary shoppers at Fort Lee, Virginia are the first to test the new Commissary Rewards Card. This test is the DeCA's first step toward introducing the world of digital couponing to its commissaries worldwide. If all goes well at Fort Lee, additional stores will initiate testing in the weeks that follow. Customers participating in the tests can only use their cards at these locations until the card is released for worldwide use, which is currently scheduled for the fall time frame.
The cards, which will only be available at commissaries, are easy to use. Once customers get their cards in a store, they will need to visit DeCA's website to register the card and load digital coupons to their account. They will also be able to print a list of their coupons before making the trip to the commissary. Once the card is scanned at the register, the coupons will be matched to their purchases and the savings automatically deducted. New offers will typically be posted online every two to three weeks.
As an incentive, customers who register their card by October 24, 2012 can enter the 2012 Commissary Rewards Card "Home for the Holidays Sweepstakes" sponsored by Dr Pepper/Snapple for a chance to win round-trip airline tickets for four to anywhere in the states, lodging in a hotel room that accommodates four for six days and five nights, and $1,000 spending money. The sweepstakes entry form will appear at the end of the registration process online.
Digital coupons, just like their paper counterparts, have expiration dates and other terms and conditions that must be followed for redemption. However, digital coupons will not be accepted for up to six months after expiration overseas as paper coupons are. That's because the coupons are distributed digitally and are instantly available to all customers worldwide, so overseas customers won't need extra time to use the coupons. Once a coupon expires, it will disappear from the customer's account.
