Gift of groceries

Giving the gift of groceries takes on a new meaning during the holidays when service members receive Commissary Gift Cards from their families and friends.
It's a time-honored tradition for military members to take care of their own,  said Air Force Command Chief Master Sgt. Stuart M. Allison, the Defense Commissary Agencys senior enlisted advisor to the agency director. However, Commissary Gift Cards make it possible for individuals and organizations everywhere - inside or outside of the military community - to also help their favorite soldier, sailor, airman, Marine and their families by extending their commissary benefit.
Commissary Gift Cards come in denominations of $25 and $50. Anyone can purchase a card for an authorized patron either online through DeCA's website,, or at a commissary.

The gift card can be used to pay for all in-store purchases or customers can use multiple forms of payments and coupons along with the gift card. Gift cards cannot be redeemed for cash, and customers will not be able to receive change for any unused amount left on the card. With its declining balance, the gift card is used until it is zeroed out.
Since DeCA began the gift card program in June 2011, commissaries have sold nearly 600,000 cards worth almost $20 million through Sept. 30, said Bob Bunch, gift card program manager. Also, nearly 90 percent of the cards purchased since the program started have been redeemed.
I'm an Army veteran, and I can tell you it adds something extra during the holidays for service members to receive Commissary Gift Cards, Bunch said. They're a quick and easy way to extend their commissary benefit.

Here are some Commissary Gift Card quick facts:
*Gift cards are available at all commissaries worldwide-on a rack at full service, front-end registers as well as through the DeCA website, Click on the Shoppingtab at the top of the page, then Gift Cards and then the Place your order box.
*The cards expire five years from the date of purchase.
*Commissary Gift Cards purchased online incur a shipping and handling fee. These fees are not assessed, however, when the card is purchased in a store.
*There is no limit to the number of gifts cards that a purchaser can buy. However, DeCA officials recommend organizations and activities consider purchasing their gift cards online if they plan to purchase more than 50 cards at a time.
*Commissary Gift Cards can be shipped anywhere in the United States. When shipping outside the United States, an APO, FPO or DPO address must be used.

*For customer service questions, please call 877-988-4438, which is also found on the back of the gift card. Customers can also use this number to check the balance on their card.
Customers who still have unused gift vouchers, the precursor to the gift card, may still redeem them through Aug. 31, 2016, regardless of the expiration date printed on it. After this date, DeCA will no longer accept gift vouchers as a form of payment.
