Commissaries feature May specials

From Cinco de Mayo to Memorial Day, commissary shoppers will find great deals on top-quality, low-priced food to fit their lifestyle and outdoor activities this May. “Spring is a great time of year to clean off the grill and take advantage of great commissary prices on fresh choice grade-A beef, pork and chicken,” said Randy Chandler, DeCA’s sales director.  “We’ve even got great deals on our fresh fish.”

DeCA’s industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with commissaries in May to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Patrons are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times.

Commissary Rewards Card now offers Android app

Commissary Rewards Card users can now download an Android app to access and clip digital coupons.

Available free from the Google Play Store, the Commissary Rewards Android app joins the previously released iPhone/iPad app, giving commissary shoppers access to their rewards card accounts through a vast array of smart phones and tablets. “Now with apps for both operating systems, our patrons have more flexibility on when and where they can clip coupons, review their lists of downloaded coupons and track which ones have been redeemed or expired,”  said Marye Carr, the Defense Commissary Agency’s rewards card manager. The apps also let customers connect to the nearest commissary via phone numbers and addresses. And, just like accessing their accounts from a desktop computer, Commissary Rewards Card users can always be plugged into new promotions and contests customized for them.
