FORT LEE, Va. –
The Commissary Rewards Card is now available in the Langley Air Force Base and Fort Eustis Commissaries. The card allows customers to access digital coupons online and redeem them in any commissary by scanning the card at checkout.
"We're very excited about this new initiative," said Defense Commissary Agency Director and CEO Joseph H. Jeu. "These cards allow our customers to reduce the number of paper coupons they have to clip and carry. That saves our customers time, effort and money."
The cards, available only from a commissary, are easy to use. As an introductory offer, customers who pick up their card by Oct. 24 receive preloaded digital coupons that can be used immediately in the commissary, even before the card is registered. To register their card and add more digital coupons, customers visit the commissary website at http://www.commissaries.com/rewards/index.cfm
Once a card is registered, customers can print a list of their digital coupons to carry with them to the commissary and help keep track of their savings. New digital coupon offers are typically posted online every two to three weeks.
Customers who register their card by Oct. 24 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 appears at the end of the registration process online.
Just like their paper counterparts, digital coupons have expiration dates and other terms and conditions that must be followed for redemption. However, Commissary Rewards Card digital coupons will not be accepted in commissaries overseas for up to six months after expiration, as paper coupons are. This is because the coupons are distributed digitally and instantly available to all customers worldwide. Once a coupon expires, it will disappear from the customer's account.
DeCA's coupon policy limits coupons to one per purchase, so these digital coupons cannot be combined with manufacturer coupons, including paper coupons and military or commissary coupons.
Future enhancements to the card are expected to enable DeCA's industry partners to target savings based on the customer's specific usage, alert patrons to available sales promotions at their local stores and reward consistent shoppers with specific incentives.
"Digital couponing is the first of many innovative programs that are part of our Commissary 2020 vision to deliver a 21st century benefit,"
Jeu said. "We are always working with our industry partners to negotiate the lowest possible prices and identify new ways for our customers to save even more."
