Your Commissary – It's Worth the Trip!
FORT LEE, Va. (Jan. 12, 2017) – When it comes to saving money on the menus for their football playoffs viewing party, service members and their families can score big if they remember their commissary, said Tracie Russ, the Defense Commissary Agency's director of sales.
"We are ready to provide what you need – chicken wings, veggie and fruit trays, pizzas, sodas, water, snacks and the ingredients for that special dip and more – for whatever big game party you're hosting," Russ said. "With the money you'll save, you might even think about getting a larger TV screen at your local exchange."
With the football playoffs in full swing, commissary patrons will see displays in their stores highlighting the promotions and sales for those big game football parties.
Before visiting their store, Russ encourages commissary patrons to use this site to help them maximize their big game savings before they shop. Website visitors can access Commissary Rewards Card digital coupons, the Sales and Events page, the sales flyer and the Savings Aisle for promotional prices and more.
Customers should check their local commissary for details on dates and times of the following promotions:
"Your commissary benefit can save you a bunch on your party 'eats,'" Russ said. "With more money in your wallet, you can relax, enjoy the game and munch on those tasty snacks."
