** We would like to welcome HawiianDawn as the new OP **.

Please thank
thelahaiesfamil for all of her hard work in this thread.**

Being a military spouse has its many challenges. One of the challenges is trying to feed your family on a limited income. I thought it would be helpful to the many of us SD'rs out there that are military or military spouses to have an official Deca/ Commissary thread. There are so many great deals and YMMV by store, but at least here you may be able to look for a deal that you might not have known about before. I HTH someone save a little for thier family!! Enjoy!

Subject = ScotchBrite Coupon

I accessed your website and found a $1 off any one product coupon that
expires June 30, 2010. I tried to use the coupon today and was told the coupon is
"fraudulent." However, I found it on your website.
Are you not honoring the coupon you posted?
It certainly is embarrassing to have someone tell me the coupon I got from
a manufacturer's website is fraudulent.

Dear xxxx,

Thank you for contacting 3M regarding our Scotch-Brite(TM) internet printed

It is up to the retailers as to which coupons they will accept. This is
still an active coupon. We suggest you try another retailer.

If we can be of further assistance, please feel free to contact us.

Best Regards,

Patron Comments: I was told I could not use my Scotch-Brite coupons at the
XXXX AFB commissary because the coupons are fraudulent. The coupons were
obtained from:
The current coupon is: The
coupon available when I printed my coupons was the same coupon, except it
was for $1 off one product. Can you tell me what is fraudulent about these
coupons? Is 3m not honoring them? It certainly is embarrassing to be accused
of trying to use fraudulent coupons when I got the coupons from the
manufacturer's website. Thank you

Dear Ms. XXX

Thank you for accessing the Defense Commissary Agency's web site with your
concern. I apologize for any inconvenience you experienced at the XXX

I cannot tell you why the commissary did not accept your coupon; when a
commissary informs you a coupon is counterfeit, we expect them to be able to
show you the notice. I researched the counterfeit coupon alerts we have
provided to the commissaries and did not find one for Scotch-Brite brand

I am copying Ms. xxxx, Scott Store Director, on this e-mail. I
suggest you contact her at xxx-xxx-xxxx to set up an appointment to meet
with her on your next visit to discuss the specifics of your coupon and the
items presented for purchase.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity to address this issue. I encourage
you to continue to take advantage of your commissary benefit and the 30
percent plus overall savings. If you need assistance in the future, please
do not hesitate to contact Ms. xxxx or any member of her management

Walgreens RR CAN be used at the Commissary, see below:

Ms. Lxxxxx,

I don't see anything in the fine print limiting redemption to Walgreen's,
although naturally they want you to use it there since the promotional money
is being provided for their company! So, yes, the commissary can accept

So if you feel the same I am sure she would appreciate to know what a great customer service agent she is.

The Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) faced a tough operating environment in the fiscal year that ended Sept. 30 as sales fell by 4.3 percent.


Is it a coincidence that their sales dropped right about the time they scared many of the couponers off....
Coupled with the ID scanning...

I live about 20 miles from the Commissary, and if I don't time it right, I hit I-5 traffic.
I've been buying more unprocessed foods, and more organic etc, so I was already shopping those items off-base.
I also have a pretty decent stockpile for our small family, and drug store deals took a bite out of what I used to spend at the Comm.

I was shopping about once a month, and still spending a pretty good chunk of money, buying pet supplies and some random stuff with coupons that was a lot less there than in town.

Last fall, they closed the Commissary, and Costco welcomed us to shop for those few days. I have 2 Costco stores 5-10 miles from here (depends which direction I'm going).

Then they started the ID scanning, which I don't care for one bit.

Then Costco had the Living Social deal in the spring, and I finally joined.

This past year, I've probably been to the Commissary 4 or 5 times, and spent less than I used to on my monthly trip. Now, I'm upgrading cat food, so that won't even draw me back for a stockup. I'm about to the point where driving there is going to cost more than what I'd save by making the drive.

I think I've always had a little bit of a love/hate relationship with the Commissary. I've never really found it to be a pleasant place to shop (it has an atmosphere of unfriendliness to me) but back when we needed it especially, the prices were good. After 22 years, it was sort of a go-to habit. Not so much now.

Wow! Nobody has posted in here for a long time!

If you like PowerAde a WYB 10 get 5 free coupon has been found on base. One thing I find annoying is a local military spouse has been selling those TP coupons on her Facebook page. Looks like she took the whole pad-I was able to find some at the commissary that is further away. I just think making money off of TPs found in the commissary is bold, but I suppose if she was trading I would be ok.

Also in the June coupon connection they have $1 off wyb any one Fresh Express Blend or kit plus this is Mfq coupon.

I do agree that the deals are not as good and if I did not work on base I would not shop at the commissary. Really what I do is go by and pick up some stuff that I know is cheaper like paper plates as an ex.
$1 off Weber mfq is a good deal-the seasoning bottles are $1.39
.75 off Wishbone mfq is pretty good since they are on sale for $1.49

It's good to see someone posting here again! I still hit the commissary for meat and the items that are cheaper but only once a month or so.

7/15- 8/16 Cascadian Farms cereal will be 1.99. I don't know if there are any coupons out or not, There were long-dated peelies out once upon a time, but I'm not sure if any of those are still good or not.
