A question from a reader:
Hi, I am a fellow military wife and heard from a friend of mine that the commissary accepts a military ONLY coupon and a regular
manufacturer’s coupon with 1 item… So, basically like stacking.. I always thought this was a no-no, do you know the answer, by chance?
Great question! I’ve had several people tell me that they can save big at the commissary by stacking coupons. According to the official commissary coupon policy you cannot stack coupons.
The policy states:
Customers may only use one coupon per purchase in DeCA commissaries. (A “purchase” is the item or set of items a customer must buy to meet the purchase requirements listed on the coupon.)
I have heard of cashiers allowing customers to stack coupons, but they are not following official policy.
Commissary cashiers have become much more vigilant about checking coupons before you check out so it is best to follow the commissary coupon policy and not try to break the rules by stacking. If the cashier is familiar with the policy they will not allow you to stack.
You can read more about commissary and coupons in my Extreme Couponing at the Commissary article. Don’t forget all the greatest deals and coupons for the commissary are shared twice a month in my commissary coupon match ups.
