Commissary Rewards Card to offer mobile app

FORT LEE, Va. – The Commissary Rewards Card celebrated its one-year anniversary Aug. 8 by delivering a gift – to commissary customers.

“A mobile application [was] released and [is] available from the app store … for customers who use the iPhone or iPad,” said Marye Carr, Defense Commissary Agency’s Rewards Card program manager. “The app will allow you to access your account, select coupons and review clipped, redeemed and expired coupons – making it even easier to put your coupons to work for you.” An Android version of the app will become available in the future.

Carr said the app also allows shoppers to locate commissaries worldwide and access store information such as phone number and address. These added capabilities enhance the usefulness of the Commissary Rewards Card, which gives customers access to digital coupons redeemable at any commissary.

“The Commissary Rewards Card provides a great asset to our busy, budget-conscious customers,” said Director of Sales Randy Chandler. “Our shoppers want to save time, effort and money, plus reduce their reliance on paper coupons that have to be clipped and carried.”

More than 800,000 cards have been registered by shoppers, who have downloaded more than 8 million coupons so far. That means bigger savings for them, on top of the commissary’s routine savings of 30 percent or more.

“It’s not unusual for the Commissary Rewards Card to offer more than 120 coupons at any given time,” said Carr. “Check in daily for new coupons. Honestly, if you’re not using your card, you’re throwing money away.”

Carr said many customers find it handy to print a list of their coupons to help them keep track of their savings. “The card provides another way to save, in addition to your paper coupons,” she said.

“Commissary shoppers love coupons, so this is another way to increase buying power.”

Using the card is simple: Pick up a card at the commissary, visit DeCA’s website to register it and then select and load digital coupons. Then, when the cashier scans the card, the coupons are matched to items purchased and savings are deducted from the bill automatically.

Rewards Card digital coupons disappear from your account when they expire or are redeemed. Like paper coupons, they can’t be combined with other coupons on the same item, and they have expiration dates and other redemption terms and conditions. Overseas, digital coupons will not be accepted for up to six months after expiration, as paper coupons are, because the coupons are instantly available to all customers worldwide. That means overseas customers don’t need extra time to use the coupons.

To learn more about the card or sign up to be notified of updates, including new coupon alerts, go to http://www.commissaries.com/rewards_subscribe.cfm. A customer service hotline can be reached at 1.855.829.6219 or via email at commissarysupport@inmar.com.
