Cigarette Pricing

Why are cigarettes priced differently than other commissary products?

Commissaries sell cigarettes on a consignment basis from the Army & Air Force Exchange Service so they are not sold at cost like other commissary products.

In November, 2000, the Department of Defense (DoD) established a cigarette pricing policy that requires exchanges in the U.S. to survey and set prices not more than 5% below the lowest local competitor in their specific area. For this reason, prices will vary from commissary to commissary within the U.S.
