F. E. WARREN AIR FORCE BASE, Wyo. -- F. E. Warren Commissary has rolled out the Commissary Rewards Card that will allow customers to access and redeem digital coupons. Cards can only be used at commissaries where the card has been deployed.
The commissary has actively starting passing them out as of Sept. 19, 2012 to authorized patrons and also have signs displayed promoting the program. As an introductory offer, customers who pick up their cards by Oct. 24 will receive preloaded digital coupons on their cards that they can use in the commissary immediately.
"We are very excited about this new initiative," said Store Director Kathy Beatty. "These cards will allow our customers to reduce the number of paper coupons they have to clip and carry," she added. "That saves our customers time, effort and money."
The cards, which will only be available at commissaries, are easy to use. Once customers get their cards in the store, they will need to visit DeCA'S website to register it and load digital coupons to their account. Once the card is scanned at the register, the coupons will be matched to their purchases and the savings automatically deducted. It's that simple.
Customers will have the option of printing off a list of their coupons before making the trip to the commissary to help them keep track of their savings. New offers will typically be posted online every two to three weeks.
As an incentive, customers who register their card by Oct. 24 can enter the 2012 Commissary Rewards Card "Home for the Holidays Sweepstakes" sponsored by Dr. Pepper-Snapple for a chance to win round-trip airline tickets for four to anywhere in the states, lodging in a hotel room that accommodates four for six days and five nights, and $1,000 spending money. The sweepstakes entry form will appear at the end of the registration process online.
Digital coupons, just like their paper counterparts, have expiration dates and other terms and conditions that must be followed for redemption. Once a coupon expires, it will disappear from the customer's account.
Also, DeCA's coupon policy limits coupons to one per purchase, so these digital coupons cannot be combined with manufacturer coupons, including paper coupons and military or commissary coupons.
Future enhancements to the card are expected to enable DeCA'S industry partners to target savings based on the customer's specific usage, alert patrons to available sales promotions at their local stores and reward consistent shoppers with specific incentives.
Digital couponing is the first of many innovative programs that are part of our Commissary 2020 vision to deliver a 21st century benefit. We are always working with our industry partners to negotiate the lowest possible prices and identify new way for our customers to save even more.
