Spring Case Lot Sales offer Maximum Savings

FORFT LEE, Va.  Military members and their families in the U.S. wanting to load up on savings only need to venture as far as their local store during the Defense Commissary Agencys spring National Case Lot Sale event.
You cannot find a better deal than our case lot events to save up to 50 percent on some items, said Tracie Russ, DeCAs director of Sales. Many of our savvy shoppers circle their calendars for these events  they never miss the chance to stock up.
Each stateside store hosts an individual two- or three-day case lot sale. Sale dates begin in some locations as early as the first week in May and in others as late as the end of June. Patrons are encouraged to check for case lot schedules. Commissaries in Alaska, Hawaii and Puerto Rico are also participating.
Commissaries in Europe and the Pacific, while not officially participating, may have substitute events such as sidewalk sales.
Case lot sales traditionally offer extraordinary discounts in case formats similar to commercial club stores. However, commissary case lot events also offer additional mix and match packages of similar items in bulk-size cases. These include grocery items such as barbecue sauces, canned tomatoes, beans, certain pasta meals, cereals, snacks, water, tea and juices.
Customers have a variety of options to choose from. Sale items include products in the following categories:
" Fruit snacks, crackers, cereals, pastries, popcorn and potato chips
" Water and flavored water, juices, juice mixes, sodas, sports drinks and milk

Our case lot events are perfect for the shoppers who want to get the most of their commissary benefit through extra savings on bulk items, Russ said. Its definitely worth the trip!

Commissary Gift Cards offer Unique Value for Patrons.
By Mike Perron,
DeCA Public Affairs Specialist

FORT LEE, Va.  Gift cards are a great idea. They solve the problem of trying to figure out what to give someone with a simple answer: give them a choice. But then youre faced with a different question  which card to give? Sure, you could give them one for an online retailer, but then much of the cards value would probably go toward paying shipping costs and handling fees.
What to do?
Heres an idea: get them a commissary gift card! Authorized shoppers can then pick out what they want, knowing theyre getting the biggest bang for every dollar spent by shopping at the commissary and taking advantage of the best prices in town. And from meat and potatoes to hanging plants, commissaries sell a surprising variety of everyday needs.
The cards can be used to purchase anything sold in the commissary, said Bob Bunch, the Defense Commissary Agencys gift card program manager. And we do about $5 million a year in gift card sales. The program, which enters its 6th year in June, has seen just shy of 660-thousand cards worth more than $22.5 million snapped up by givers. And unlike most gift cards, shoppers actually use the commissary gift cards they receive. Our redemption rate is really phenomenal, said Bunch, adding that almost 90 percent of all cards sold have been fully redeemed. The industry average redemption rate for a gift card is about 75 percent.
The cards are available to anyone online at and in-store for authorized commissary shoppers.
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 the website. Just use the Place your order button on the Gift Cards page.
" Cards are good for five years from the date of purchase.
" Only 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 cards online if they plan to purchase more than 50 at a time.
" The cards can be sent anywhere in the United States. However, cards can only be shipped to APO, FPO or DPO addresses outside the United States.
" To check card balances, use the Check Your Balance button on the Gift Cards page.
Customers who still have unused gift vouchers, the precursor to the gift card, may still redeem them through Aug. 31, regardless of the expiration date printed on it. After that date, DeCA will no longer accept the vouchers as a form of payment.
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.

Commissaries have sizzling savings on meat!!
By Kevin L. Robinson,
DeCA Public Affairs Specialist

FORT LEE, Va.  Memorial Day is fast approaching, and authorized patrons who double as backyard grill masters can save big if they buy the meats for their barbecue at the commissary.
We have tremendous savings on meat items versus the civilian retail market, said Charlie Dowlen, the Defense Commissary Agencys category manager for meat. We have the best deal in town.
With May being National Barbecue Month, the official grilling season is on. For most military members and their families, the savings draw them to their commissary for meat and other grilling accessories  sauces, condiments, side dishes, aluminum foil, charcoal briquettes and more, Dowlen said.
We definitely see surges of barbecue-related sales during traditional grilling season, he said. Sales for meat in particular can go up 30 or 40 percent.
For specific promotions related to the grilling season, patrons can go to, click on the Sales Flyer at the bottom and see discounted prices through May 22. Patrons will also see their stores promoting local sales on top of everyday meat savings, Dowlen added.
Another barbecue-related deal is the 2016 Memorial Day Holiday Coupon booklet, offering savings of more than $17 on in-store processed fresh beef or pork with qualifying purchases. The booklets were developed through a partnership with Kraft, Heinz, Kelloggs, Frito Lay, Johnsonville and Rice-A-Roni/Pasta Roni. Nearly 180 stateside stores are scheduled to have coupons on hand May 14, 21 and 28. The coupons are good through June 30. Supplies are limited. Check your local commissary for details.
Dowlen said some of the most popular items sold during grilling season are ground beef and hamburger patties, steaks (T-bones, rib eyes, sirloin), baby back and spareribs, and brisket. Patrons looking to save even more on their grill meats should look for forequarter meat such as chuck meat, as well as pork and chicken  chicken legs and thighs are cheaper than breast meat and wings.
Overall, the commissary benefit provides patrons significant savings versus commercial stores, Dowlen said. However, meat savings are off the charts  making it well worth the trip, especially during grilling season.
