FORT LEE, Virginia — It’s a new year and commissary shoppers can resolve to eat healthier and save more simply by taking advantage of special in-store promotions and coupons, according to the Defense Commissary Agency’s director of sales.
“Low commissary prices are always good for the wallet, while our variety of products gives you choices to match your healthy lifestyle needs,” said Tracie Russ, DeCA’s director of sales.

Russ said customers are finding it very helpful to check out for the commissary’s sales flyer. There’s also an Exclusive Savings link and additional resources for more coupons and healthy recipes.

From Jan. 8 to Feb. 4, DeCA’s industry partners — vendors, suppliers and brokers — are collaborating with commissaries to offer discounts beyond everyday savings. Overseas stores may have substituted events for certain promotional programs, as follows.

Kraft Foods Group. Its “Super Bowl: Score Big with Kraft” features 2 million coupons worth $1.3 million. Kraft is giving away 92 televisions and three $50 Commissary gift cards to stateside patrons and 14 televisions to patrons overseas.
With a Commissary Rewards Card coupon special, Jan. 25-Feb. 1, customers can save $1.50 off fresh produce (or produce tray) or ground meat (or chicken) when they buy two participating Kraft items.
There’s also a $5-off coupon effective during a Feb. 8-22 shopping trip. Look for tear pads at your commissary to enter.

“Inspire My Morning.” Through Quaker & Tropicana’s 8th annual promotion, customers will find flyers featuring recipes, coupons and details on how to share their inspirational breakfast photos through Instagram. Shoppers can enter a contest via Instagram that will award Commissary gift cards for the most creative “Inspire My Morning” images.
Contest winners will be invited to their Commissary where they can demonstrate how to prepare their inspirational breakfast.

American Country Music Awards. Dr. Pepper and Mott’s brands offer a chance to meet today’s most popular country music stars. Four winners plus one guest will win trips to the 2015 ACM Awards at AT&T Stadium in Dallas. Trip package includes roundtrip airfare and ground transportation to the Dr. Pepper events, two nights with deluxe hotel accommodations and meal vouchers, a private concert starring Darius Rucker and the Dr. Pepper welcome reception.
Shoppers overseas can register to win a 46-inch color television. Contest information, including how to enter, can be found in Commissaries in January.
