Holidays Shine Brighter

Help the holidays shine brighter
Families, friends help military with commissary gift cards
By Kathy Milley,
DeCA Corporate Communications

FORT LEE, Va.  Thanks to Hurricane Matthew, electricity was out for six days at the Allenhurst, Georgia, home Angie Felton shares with her husband, a retired Army staff sergeant, and their daughter. All of our food was ruined, and with the holidays around the corner, this was an expense that we just didnt need, said Felton.
That was when they received $100 in commissary gift cards from a friend who wanted to show her appreciation to this retired military family. This wonderful gift helped to ease our minds a bit. We were so grateful to our friend for thinking of us in this way, said Felton.
Whether its helping military families like the Feltons in their time of need or giving the gift of groceries to single service members in the barracks, commissary gift cards are a perfect and thoughtful way to show your holiday gratitude, said Air Force Command Chief Master Sgt. Stuart M. Allison, the Defense Commissary Agencys senior enlisted advisor to the agency director.
In the military, we place great importance on taking care of our own,  said Allison. Commissary gift cards are a wonderful way for anyone to show appreciation and concern for a military member  whether its the holidays or any other time of year.
And it couldnt be easier. Anyone may purchase a $25 or $50 commissary gift card for an authorized patron online at or at all commissaries worldwide.
Since the program began in 2011, nearly 700,000 gift cards valued at $24 million have been sold, said Bob Bunch, DeCAs gift card program manager. With a redemption rate of 90 percent, its a good bet that this gift of groceries to deserving military service members and families is one that will be used and appreciated.
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 Shopping tab at the top of the page, then Gift Cards and then the Place your order box.
" Cards are good for five years from the date of purchase.
" Commissary Gift Cards purchased online incur a shipping and handling fee. There are no fees 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.
" To check the gift card balance, visit, click on Shopping, then Gift Cards and then the Check your balance box.
" 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.
Commissary gift cards make it easy to show your holiday spirit to a local military family or one that is serving on the other side of the world, said Allison. And food is always a welcomed and appreciated gift that will make their holidays a bit brighter.

Dont be a Grinch and miss out on holiday commissary savings
Throughout December, the commissarys industry partners  vendors, suppliers and brokers  are collaborating with stores to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Our commissaries are full of great promotions for the holidays, said Tracie Russ, DeCA sales director. Customers will be able to save quite a bit of money for their holiday entertainment and meal needs, thanks to our industry partners. Throughout the holiday season stateside commissaries will feature Deals of the Week, while overseas commissaries may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers should check with their local commissary for details on dates and times for their promotions. Although Thanksgiving has come and gone, one of the commissarys largest worldwide promotions, the Free Turkey Coupon Booklet, continues through Dec. 31 allowing patrons to save on their holiday turkey dinners. Patrons are reminded to check out the online Sales Flyer at or get a copy at the store entrance. Go to for more details.

Use your Commissary Gift Cards to support troops over the holidays
The military has a longstanding tradition of taking care of our own. During the holidays, installation units and organizations can use the commissary benefit to extend the gift of groceries to service members in need or military families overseas. The Commissary Gift Card program allows families at home, friends, our industry partners and charitable organizations to quickly and easily show support or even introduce the commissary benefit to a junior soldier. Units or family support agencies purchasing these cards can ensure that every member of their team gets a chance at a home-cooked meal during the holidays. Read more at
