change coupon rules
LEE, Va. – Commissaries will start enforcing new policy
revisions June 1 that limit coupon use to only one per item
unless otherwise specified on a coupon.
still gladly welcome the use of coupons. We’re only limiting
the number of coupons a customer can use per item to what is
specifically stated on the coupons. If the coupons state more
than one per item can be used, then we’ll accept them. If it
doesn’t, then we’ll accept only one per item,” said Bob
Vitikacs, the Defense Commissary Agency’s executive director
for operations and product support.
revised DeCA policy more accurately reflects manufacturers’
intent for coupon use, which has always been one coupon per
item unless otherwise stated, Vitikacs said. DeCA policy had
allowed commissaries to accept multiple coupons unless
specifically stated as only “one per item.”
the new policy, customers can still take advantage of multiple
couponing, but only through sales specifically allowing the
practice. Customers can watch for advertising and in-store
flyers to learn about these sales, and manufacturers will
continue to provide coupons in the stores.
