Commissary Rewards Card

Have you picked up a commissary rewards card yet?

Many off-base grocery store chains have a rewards card but did you know the commissary has one as well? With the cost of food on the rise, almost everyone is looking for ways to save money. Digital coupons can help with that. If you aren’t familiar with digital coupons they are just like paper but in electronic form. They offer discounts, offers, and promotions. They can be manufacturers and store-specific coupons.

The commissary publishes a weekly sales flyer that features deals and specials. This is the best place to see the instant savings you can retrieve by using your card. The sales flyer is found on the commissaries website: shop.commissaries.com. (Keep in mind, that the weekly specials run from Monday to Sunday).

Obtaining a card is as easy as 1-2-3.

Step 1: Pickup a card at your local commissary. The cashiers can help you with this.

Step 2: Register your card through the shop.commissaries.com site.

Step 3: Log into your account to load new coupons onto your card. (To load coupons click on the savings icon and then select coupons from the dropdown. From this window, you can search or browse for your desired coupons. You can even browse by category. When you find the coupons you want simply click “Clip and Save” below the coupon to claim them. You can view all your clipped coupons by clicking the “My Digital Coupons” button at the top of the page.

Step 4: Redeem your digital coupons by entering your Rewards ID at the checkout.

The process is so simple! I was pleasantly surprised to see coupons for many everyday items such as cereal, frozen meals, snacks, beverages, dairy, health and beauty, and even household items such as laundry detergent and tissue.

There are many advantages to using digital coupons such as:

  • Saving money on must-have items. If you are going to buy certain items any way you might as well save money!
  • Help manage food costs. Coupons manage the cost of canned, frozen, and packaged goods which leave room in the budget for fresh foods and meats.
  • Saves you time. It’s painless and hassle-free

I remember when I started couponing years ago I really had no clue what I was doing. I found it somewhat time-consuming. I had to buy newspapers which could sometimes be hard to find, and depending on the amount I wanted it could get expensive. Not to mention keeping up with all the paper and having to spend lots of time going through them all to discard the expired coupons I didn’t get a chance to use. Well fast forward a few years and everything has changed. The great thing about clipping coupons online now is that they remain on your account until they are redeemed and once they expire they disappear from your account automatically. Saving money sure has gotten so much easier.

If you are looking to save money with minimal effort then grab a commissary rewards card today! Happy Clipping! Happy Saving!!
