DeCA announce gift card program

By Kevin L. Robinson: Defense Commissary Agency Public Affairs

FORT LEE, Va. — Extending the gift of groceries to authorized commissary patrons soon will be a lot easier thanks to the new Commissary Gift Card.

The gift cards, available in denominations of $25 and $50, will be available June 30 for purchase in stateside stores or online through http://www.commissaries.com. Commissary customers overseas can expect to see Commissary Gift Cards in their stores by early July. Customers there should check with their local store manager for card availability.

Anyone will be able to purchase the gift cards for commissary shoppers, said Defense Commissary Agency director and CEO Joseph H. Jeu.

The cards will be available at all commissaries worldwide — on a rack at full service, front-end registers — as well as through the DeCA website, http://www.commissaries.com.

Gift Cards can be shipped anywhere in the United States. Outside the United States, gift cards can be shipped to APO, FPO or DPO addresses.
