Commissary scraps paper coupons for “Rewards Card”

10/22/2012 - FAIRCHILD AIR FORCE BASE, Wash. -- The Fairchild Commissary has now adopted the newly released "Rewards Card" that 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 Eric Quantock, the Fairchild Commissary store director. "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."

Patrons must register their card after picking one up at the commissary on the Defense Commissary Agency's website at 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.

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 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 officials said.

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," Mr. Quantock 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."
