New Commissaries Rewards Card



The registration page is located here:

Do you still have room in your wallet or on your keychain?  You're in luck - the Defense Commissary Agency (DeCA) has just rolled out their new Commissary Rewards card program.  In my local commissary today, I was handed a brochure that includes a Commissary Rewards card and instructions for online program registration.

The idea is fairly simple:  you can go online and put electronic coupons on your Commissary Rewards card, and instead of handing paper coupons to the cashier, you'll just hand the cashier your commissary rewards card.  The cashier will scan the card and the coupons will automatically be deducted from your shopping total.  Sounds great, doesn't it?

I admit that I have some reservations about how great this program is going to be, but I'm willing to give it a try.  I went to the website and clicked through to the external company who is handling the program.  I registered my card and tried to load some coupons onto it.  There weren't any coupons that interested me at this time.  However, I understand that this is a new program and that the number of available coupons will increase as the program expands.

One upside is that you can load every coupon on there, do your regular shopping, and scan the card and see if you have any coupons that match the items that you are buying.  Easy-peasy.

Anyone had any savings from the new Commissary Rewards card yet?  Share your frustrations and successes in the comments!
