FORT LEE, Va. – October represents the unofficial start to the holiday season for commissary customers who want to save more than their usual 30 percent or more.

“We’re offering daily specials throughout our stores and seasonal club packs at great savings for the upcoming holidays,” said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales. “Don’t forget to check out our fresh produce section for coupon bundles, and, if you don’t have your Commissary Rewards Card, yet, get one now. You could be missing out on some really great deals and giveaways.”

During October, 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 the following promotions:
Home for the Holidays Giveaway. From Oct. 9-22, the Dr. Pepper Snapple Group is offering 20 military families — 16 families of four stationed stateside and four families of four stationed overseas — a free trip home anywhere in the U.S., to include airfare, lodging and $1,000 spending money.
Oktoberfest. Continuing through mid-October, commissary customers will find in-store displays and coupons for imported items from Germany and other European countries. Commissaries have German products ranging from chocolates, cookies, sauerkraut, mustard, red cabbage, rich German coffee and more.
Thanksgiving Holiday Meal. Beginning Nov. 1, customers worldwide will be able to purchase their complete Thanksgiving meal with the Free Turkey Coupon booklet. The following industry partners will provide shoppers with the booklet — Kraft Foods, General Mills, Heinz, P&G, Wesson, PAM, Nabisco, Kellogg’s, and Hefty and Reynolds Wrap, Johnsonville, Presto, Pepperidge Farm and Pfizer. Supplies of these booklets worldwide will be limited.
Hungry for Football Every Day Event. Watch for the ConAgra Foods Hungry for Football store displays throughout October that have recipe books and coupon savings.
