Overseas Commissary Couponing

Military Commissary Couponing - combining discount coupons with smart purchasing at your military commissary - is a savvy and popular move that stretches your military budget even further, especially if you are stationed overseas.

USING COMMISSARY COUPONS OVERSEAS

While the Stars and Stripes newspaper serving military communities overseas does not carry coupons, military families are finding other ways to get coupons from the states.

Ann Marie Detavernier, an Army wife stationed in Germany, runs a military-spouse group dedicated to thrifty grocery shopping at her Army Community Services.

Anne Marie finds coupon-buddies on Facebook, American families that agree to send coupons overseas. Collecting and clipping coupons are a major strategy for the thrifty shoppers - and with coupons, Ann Marie estimates saving as much as $30 on her weekly commissary bill.

According to Danna S. Eldridge, a commissary management specialist at Defense Commissary Agency's headquarters in Fort Lee, VA, coupons at overseas commissary installations can be used six months after their expiration date, giving overseas military families extra time to collect and redeem coupons.

USE COUPONS TO BOOST COMMISSARY BENEFITS

Ann Marie's group represents a trend: according to a 2010 marketing survey, DECA ranked eighth among American grocery retailers for volume of coupon redemption.

Many commissaries keep a bin of coupons near the entrance, and military family centers at some overseas installations stock coupons sent from supporters in the states.

COMMISSARY COUPON RULES

Your commissary accepts all manufacturers coupons.

Only one coupon may be used for each item (either manufacturer or store coupon).

Coupons printed from online sources must meet the same requirements as a newspaper-cut clipping: they must say "coupon," include manufacturers terms and conditions, redemption instructions, and a valid bar code.
