FORT LEE, Va. – December has its own special charm that brings back cherished memories of holiday celebrations and traditions, and shopping the commissary provides savings and value that make today’s celebrations just as memorable.

“Family, food and friends are the perfect ingredients for making new memories that you’ll cherish over the years,” said Army Command Sgt. Maj. Tomeka N. O’Neal, the Defense Commissary Agency’s senior enlisted advisor to the DeCA director. “Save your time and money by shopping at the commissary. It has everything you need for your holiday meals, allowing you to spend more with those who matter most to you.”

Save even more time and money by visiting the online customer portal, MyCommissary. The portal makes it easy to access your Commissary Rewards Card account and see the current sales flyer.

Patrons are reminded to check the ends of aisles in their store for themed items with extra low pricing.  Overseas stores may have substitute events for certain promotional programs. Customers should check with their store for details or visit their store page to verify what’s available. Here are a few areas to consider for commissary savings:

  • Super Soda Savings. Special holiday price of four 12 packs of soda for $11. Promotion only available in states, including Alaska and Hawaii, from Dec. 23 to 27. 
  • Exclusive savings on select frozen turkeys. Commissaries worldwide will offer limited weekly quantities of frozen turkeys at 48¢ per pound. Plan ahead for your holiday meals and take advantage of these special seasonal savings while supplies last. Check your commissary for brand availability. Promotion runs through Dec. 31. 
  • Turkey booklet. The commissary and its industry partners are teaming up to offer a coupon booklet offering savings of more than $21 off a turkey with qualifying holiday meal purchases. A limited number of these booklets were distributed only to stateside stores (including Alaska and Hawaii) at the end of October. They can be redeemed at any commissary worldwide through December.
