Special deals for holiday cheers at your commissary

The winter holidays are right around the corner, and special in-store promotions and coupons make the commissary the place to go to save on holiday groceries, according to the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales.

“We’ve got some great promotions lined up for the holiday season,” said Chris Burns, DeCA sales director. “Customers will be able to save quite a bit of money for their winter holiday entertainment and meal needs, thanks to our industry partners.”

Throughout December, DeCA’s industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs.

Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for the following promotions:

 

  • Acosta and participating brands present “The Great Home for the Holidays Sale” and “Celebrate Santa Sale.” Both sales will be supported by 300,000 full-color coupon flyers distributed to commissaries worldwide. Most participating brands will donate 25 cents per case sold in the commissaries to the Wounded Warrior Project organization, which supports the rehabilitation of our wounded soldiers. This promotion runs Nov. 29 to Jan. 2.
  • ConAgra Foods’ “Holiday Helpings Event Benefiting USO” promotion will feature displays of the “Holiday Helping Recipe and Coupon Booklet” offering over $10 in coupons savings. This booklet provides commissary shoppers helpful ideas and recipes for their holiday gatherings along with savings on seasonal brands. In addition, they will donate 20 cents to the USO for each coupon redeemed up to a total of $5,000. The www.conagracommissarydeals.com website will also promote these commissary sales promotions. The site will display all the promotion items, provide additional coupons and help shoppers make a shopping list. The promotion runs Nov. 29 to Jan. 2.
  • General Mills’ has created Betty 911, a social media site where they can get answers to their questions concerning cooking and baking directly from the Betty Crocker Kitchens. This is available Nov. 29 through December.

 

“The Defense Commissary Agency wishes you and your family, here and abroad, a very happy, healthy and safe holiday season,” Burns said. “Your commissary is worth the trip for all your holiday baking and cooking needs!”
