Commissary Rewards Card now offers Android app

FORT LEE, Va. -- Commissary Rewards Card users can now download an Android application to access and clip digital coupons.

Available free from the Google Play Store, the Commissary Rewards Android app joins the previously released iPhone/iPad app, giving commissary shoppers access to their rewards card accounts through a vast array of smart phones and tablets.

"We've tested the Android app and received good reviews on its ability to connect rewards card users with available coupons," said Marye Carr, the Defense Commissary Agency's rewards card manager. "Now with apps for both operating systems, our patrons have more flexibility on when and where they can clip coupons, review their lists of downloaded coupons and track which ones have been redeemed or expired."

The apps also let customers connect to the nearest commissary via phone numbers and addresses. And, just like accessing their accounts from a desktop computer, Commissary Rewards Card users can always be plugged into new promotions and contests customized for them.

Kellogg's is offering one such contest, "Win a Family 4th of July in Washington DC," from May 1-31 for patrons with Commissary Rewards Cards. The grand prize is a trip to Washington, D.C., with three guests to attend a Nationals' baseball game scheduled for July 2. For more details and additional prizes, visit https://deca.couponselectionpage.com/offers/all on or after May 1.

Since it was unveiled in September 2012, the Commissary Rewards Card has become a game-changer for commissary patrons, opening up access to digital coupons redeemable in commissaries, said DeCA Sales Director Randy Chandler.

"As the military changes, so is DeCA, and the Commissary Rewards Card is a way the commissary benefit is evolving to remain relevant to our service members and their families," Chandler said. "It's amazing how card users can get to these electronic savings - now more than 150 coupons at a time - from either the click of a mouse or now from their own smart phones and tablets."

From the program's start through April 4, Commissary Rewards Card users have downloaded more than 26 million digital coupons, and commissaries have redeemed over 3 million for a savings of $3.6 million to patrons.

Using the rewards card has become as simple as 1-2-3, Carr said:
· Get a rewards card at a commissary.
· Register the card at http://www.commissaries.com/rewards/index.cfm .
· "Clip" or download coupons to your account (they are automatically loaded to your card).
· Print a list of your coupons and bring it and your card with you on your next shopping trip.
· Present your card at checkout so the cashier can scan it for coupons that match your purchased items.
· Digital coupons are automatically erased from the account as they are redeemed or if they expire.

"The savings from using coupons helps our patrons extend their savings even more," Carr said. "And, with the mobile apps, they have even more options to access their Commissary Rewards Card accounts for digital savings."
