DECA Coupon Policy:

You may find DECA’s coupon Policy Here
-Coupons are redeemed at face value.
-DECA allows overage (overage is when a coupon is more than the price of the product you can then use that extra money off of the rest of your grocery order).
For Example: A bottle of shampoo is $2.50 and you have a $3.00 off coupon, you then get the shampoo free and $.50 towards the rest of your order.
-Using Catalina’s (coupons that print out at other stores like Walgreens RR and ShopRite are a couple of examples). As long as the coupon say Redeemable at ____ and does not say ONLY redeemable at_____ the commissary will accept it.
-You can use both manufacturer coupons and military store coupons at the commissary, however you may not combine the two. You can only use one coupon per item. There are times that the military coupons you find in the commissary are better than the ones in the Sunday paper inserts and it goes the other way too, sometimes the Sunday paper coupons are better than the ones you will find in the Commissary.
-If you are stationed overseas, you have the benefit of being able to use expired coupons. Coupons can be up to 6 months expired and still useable when you are in overseas locations.
-Printable coupons can be used at the commissary, Printable coupons for FREE products cannot be redeemed at the Commissary, but Buy One Get One Free printable coupons can be used. Printable coupons must have a bar code and a product identification number.

-From my experience the best time to shop at the commissary is a few days after a payday or a few days before a payday. The prices seem to be a bit lower and there tend to be more coupons available in the store.
