** 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!

IMPORTANT COUPONING INFO:
Subject = ScotchBrite Coupon

Message
Hi.
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.
Thanks,
XXXX XXXX

Dear xxxx,

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

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,

Colleen

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: http://www.3m.com/us/home_leisure...nailsaver/
The current coupon is:
http://www.3m.com/us/home_leisure...coupon.pdf 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
Commissary.

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
products.

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
staff.

Sincerely,

xxxxxxxxx

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
this.

Keesler Air Force Base Commissary

and this is her email
Danna.Eldridge@deca.mil

She has been super about answering our questions (we have been working on clarifying this since mid April(2010)) and because of her fantastic customer service we want to commend her to her supervisor! So if you feel the same I am sure she would appreciate to know what a great customer service agent she is.

It's 25 cents per copy. They get most inserts- P&G, short versions of RP and SS. Never get the Unilever or Huggies mq but I can get those elsewhere.
there are newspapers with inserts that only charge 25 cents!! EEK!Faint

I wonder if they are still holding a case for me. Of course, with them, I wonder about a lot of things.
Do you happen to know how many KY are in a case? I got lucky with the coupon (and have a ton of people printing it for me) so I'm going to order a case once we move so I can buy some groceries.

I'll admit I pay for toilet paper. DH will only allow Charmin in the bathroom and since we only have a couple stores, it is hard to find deals on Charmin. Hubby is pretty brand picky.

Nutro didn't reset for me Frown I finally picked up my first two bags of it today.

I brought my $78 order down to $1.98 thanks to the earlier print of KY (from like last month) Picked up some Butterball ground turkey for $1.23-$1.29 lb after the 50 cent peelie on it. I love buying stuff we actually need with coupons and showing the people behind me in line you can buy fresh meat and dairy items with coupons and not just mustard.

Have you read any of the drama on another forum where a store manager told a patron she was "profiting" from using overage - and thus "abusing her commissary privileges.."

EEK!

No I missed that one. The only way I can see someone "profiting" is by getting cash back but even that is a tricky line because they get reimbursed for the coupons. I feel like DECA created this great coupon policy but the store managers aren't too fond of it (kind of like Walmart)

Edited to add: Just found it. I don't agree with how that store manager treated her but looking at some of the trips on there, I can somewhat see how managers are feeling now. Ordering 200 + rolls of tape just seems absolutely crazy to me (My own personal opinion...don't flame me for it) But I'm also a fly under the radar as much as possible coupon shopper.

200 rolls of tape equals $156.00 - 200 in coupons equals $44 for Charmin toilet paper. I'm just sayin'. Dontknow Then you donate the tape. Stick Out Tongue

Yea but I'm the type of person that would rather just spend the money on the TP than throw the spotlights on myself. The most of any overage coupons I have ever used was around 20 of the Pert Plus coupons because I like to stay under the radar. That is my style of couponing. 200 + of those IPs definately would not fly here (no matter what the policy says)

Not to mention I'd lose some of that overage having to buy new ink from printing out those IPs.

On to another subject, the Weber coupon that everyone is using for the marinades has in the fine print "Limit one per purchase/household." Do we interpret that as one per transaction then? That is the first time I have seen that wording on a coupon.

I didn't get it in my inserts so I bought some and then saw it in the fine print. They took two totally different ideas and put them together into one statement. Can I buy multiples and say I'm buying them for different households? Wink

Lol...today I kept it in my green bag until checkout. My cashier is a couponer herself so she knows why I was buying it. If I ever get one that asks I'm going to tell them I hold KY jelly wrestling matches on the weekends to help support my couponing habit. Free admission with one recent insert Wink That should keep them quiet.

One per purchase/household. Scratchchin Hey wait! Maybe it means you can't have BBQ's and share your marinade with others. Only for your one household! Whee That's gonna suck for the people with multiple wives. laugh out loud

Since I was the only one couponing at one of the stores when I got here and they had no idea what the policy was, flying under the radar didn't last through two trips. *sigh*

Hey guys - I am so out of touch and flustered and NOT caught up at all.....but in case it hasn't been posted - I just got some lunchables at the comm for free and for 50¢....the ones with fruit were 50¢ after q and didn't beep, the little subs were free but beeped...I didn't think they should have bc the q said sub along with several other kinds....and the cashier agreed and pushed it through....but anyhoo - just a heads up.

On another note - anyone have anything GOOD to say about FT Leonard Wood? Hubby has been there several times for schools, I have been there to visit him while he was there....and now if nothing changes....we have orders to go there in April. Yippee. lol

Hope you are all well....would love if I was here wayyyyy more often, just doesn't seem to happen. Many hugs to all!
