Commissary coupon policy changes February 2014

If you're a military couponer, fair warning that your coupon experience at the commissary is about to change.

The Defense Commissary Agency released changes to the commissary coupon policy via their Facebook page on Wednesday, February 26, 2014.

The new policy states:

In order to further protect your commissary benefit, we have changed our policy for limits on quantities of goods that can be purchased in our commissaries. Please note that this is to discourage purchasing items for resale or excessive monetary refunds.

Among the notable changes: for the first time, DeCa is actually specifying what constitutes unreasonable quantities to purchase.

Going forward, shoppers who purchase more than 3 cases or 36 items or the same product may be denied either the sale or the opportunity to use coupons on part or all of that sale.

In addition, the revised commissary coupon policy goes on to state that multiple transactions in an effort to stay below the 3 case/36-item threshold will also be monitored.

Commissary locations will also halt special orders or returns of bulk purchases.

Some military shoppers are already on edge following Monday's leak of possible cuts to the commissary budget, which could result in future price hikes.

Read the updated commissary coupon policy changes on the DeCa Facebook page.
