FORT LEE, Va. — Commissary shoppers have ample ways to stretch their normal 30 percent or more savings this holiday season, thanks to special store promotions, giveaways, coupon offers and other opportunities for discounts.

“Our industry partners are offering greater savings through the use of high-value coupon booklets and special turkey offers,” said Chris Burns, Defense Commissary Agency sales director. “They’re also offering theme promotions recognizing our military veterans that save our customers and their fellow veterans even more when it’s needed most.”

Throughout November, DeCA’s industry partners – vendors, suppliers and brokers – are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers are asked to check their local commissary for details on dates and times for promotions.

Second Annual “Turkey Perfection” Promotion. Through Nov. 28, stateside customers, including Alaska and Hawaii, will receive a 32-page coupon booklet valued at more than $40. When customers purchase an item using a coupon from the booklet, they receive cash off the purchase of any whole fresh or frozen turkey.

A limit of one coupon booklet per customer is placed on this special offer, and patrons must purchase the quantities stated on the coupon. Shoppers in the Pacific will receive a special eight-page coupon flyer valued at more than $32. Supplies of both the booklets and fliers are limited.

“The Family Unit.” Through Nov. 28, this fundraiser couples with the USO to raise funds for “The Family Unit,” a place where wounded warriors can recover, spend quality time with their families and prepare for their transition back into the community.

Proctor and Gamble offers commissaries more than $70 in coupon booklets in support of this November promotion. In addition, patrons can sign up at for more coupons to use on future trips to the commissary.

For each coupon redeemed in commissaries, P&G donates 50 cents for USO’s “Operation Enduring Care.”

“Good Food, Good Life” Program. Through Nov. 28, the “Good Food, Good Life” program provides shoppers with the Nestle “Big Book of Commissary Savings” coupon booklet, which includes a wide array of holiday-related coupon offers, meal ideas, recipes and cooking tips.

“Holiday Heroes.” Through Nov. 28, Quaker and Tropicana offer holiday-bundling coupons focusing on family meals. This promotion supports the “For the Troops Foundation,” an all-volunteer nonprofit organization that provides care packages to U.S. troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Commissaries that participate could have up to $7,500 donated in their name.

“Believe in Heroes!” During November, commissaries worldwide will receive 500,000 coupon flyers, containing high-value coupons for commissary shoppers. During the promotional period, most participating brands will provide donations to the “Wounded Warrior Project” foundation.

“Special Wounded Warriors Donation Program.” Starting the first week in November, commissary shoppers in stateside commissaries, including Alaska and Hawaii, will see military-only coupons and a national wounded warrior ad/flyer from Sun Products directing shoppers to a website for more coupons.
