DECA Commissary Rewards Card


Using and redeeming coupons will soon be hassle-free with the new Commissary Rewards Card.



Testing for the new rewards card will begin in early August at the Fort Lee store, kicking off the first of three pilot phases that will culminate in 30 stores testing the new cards.

The cards, which will only be available at commissaries, are easy to use:
  • Once you get your card in a store, you will need to visit DeCA's website to register the card and load digital coupons to your account. You can register your card HERE. As an introductory offer, customers who pick up their cards by Oct. 24 will receive preloaded digital coupons on their cards for use in the commissary that day.
  • You can print your saved offers from the "My Coupons" tab on your account if you'd like a list to carry with you when you go shopping.
  • Once the card is scanned at the register, the coupons will be matched to purchases and the savings automatically deducted. 
  • New offers will typically be posted online every two to three weeks. 
  • It is up to the manufacturers that issue the coupons, but in most cases, they will only allow one coupon per customer.
Rules of using digital coupons at the Commissary:
  • Digital coupons, just like their paper counterparts, have expiration dates and other terms and conditions that must be followed for redemption. However, digital coupons will not be accepted for up to six months after expiration overseas as paper coupons are.
  • Once a coupon expires, it will disappear from the customer's account.
  • DeCA's coupon policy limits coupons to one per purchase requirement, so these digital coupons cannot be combined with manufacturer coupons, including paper coupons and military or commissary coupons.
  • There will be no overage allowed on digital coupons. None of the coupons available through the Commissary Rewards Card will be valid for more than the price of the item you are purchasing.
  • If you purchase an item and end up returning item, you cannot reuse coupon.  Coupon will no longer be available on your account.


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.

GSK and DECA are allowing OVERAGE on Nicorette Gum Coupon

A few days ago, GSK told DECA they would not allow usage of this coupon on this item:

Nicorette Gum 20ct $7.14
use Save $15 on any ONE (1) Nicorette or NicoDerm CQ product from January Coupon Connection booklet= $7.86 OVERAGE

Even if you don't smoke this is a good donation item plus you get all that overage to spend on the rest of your groceries.

They have reversed their decision as of today:

From deca facebook page:

https://www.facebook.com/YourCommissary

NICORETTE GUM COUPON UPDATE: GlaxcoSmithKline has now formally, in writing, reversed their stance on the $15.00 Nicorette coupon. GSK no longer stands by their decision made previously in a letter dated Jan. 20 that prevented DeCA from accepting the $15.00 Nicorette coupon at our commissaries. Their letter states that they will honor the coupon if it is used for the current stock that is in the store until the coupon expires Feb. 5, 2012. DeCA spoke with the Military Accounts Sales Representative from GSK and verified that it is indeed their intent to only allow the coupon to be used for the product that is currently on-hand, "in stock," in the stores.

Multitude Monday



Thank you Lord for all you do for me and my family. You are always so good to us.  Thank you for always being there.  Thank you for answering prayer.

1. KNOWLEDGE.  Thank you Lord.  I prayed for knowledge for Shawn last week.  You came through for us.  I happened to run across a paper about amantadine.  It said every so often you will need a break from taking this.  I remembered back to when he was in the hospital and they had given him a 2 day break.  This paper said to go 48 hours without medicine (amantadine).  We did that this weekend and boy was it tough but we made it through.  Shawn came home from school today a different child!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  Lord you are AMAZING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2. KNOWLEDGE.  Thank you Lord.  I have been praying for some answers to healing for fibromyalgia symptoms.  I came across "clean eating".  Also known as cutting all processed foods,  sugars, and white flours from your diet. Eating clean is the practice of eating whole, natural foods such as fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and complex carbohydrates. I have been Type 1 diabetic my whole life and never realized how processed foods were and how much sugar was in EVERYTHING you put in your mouth.  Cleaning up a diet is hard to do.  It is one of the hardest challenges that someone is faced with when it comes to improving health.


















3. Not eating ANY candy on Halloween!!!!!  NONE!!!

4. Heating Pads.

5. Oatmeal for breakfast.  I have been eating this for the past week and I can say I love my oatmeal!!!

6. .10¢ Summer clearance sale at Dollar General.  Spent $10 and got 100 items!!  NICE stuff too.  Wish I had pictures to share.  Got citronella candles, patio chairs, flower pots (the huge nice ones), kite string, july 4th decor (flag bows, flags, flag frames), small glass flower vases, bird feeders, bird houses, gardening tools, pink and dark pink plastic table covers, grill brushes.  ALL 10¢ each!!! Yes this was an advertised special in their weekly ad.

7.  Chris and Shawn going on a "man" date Saturday.  It was so nice to see them go out by themselves and bond.

8. Devin and his Air Force Coins. LOL.  He is so into those things.

9. My children's love for Christ.

10.  Your WORD.  If I ever question anything in life or anything that someone says or thinks I can always look in the word and see if it is real or not.  If it is not in your word Father, then it is FALSE and FAKE.  It is all laid out there for us.

How does the program work?


  • Participating dentists "buy" back kids' Halloween candy at a scheduled event
  • "Buy" with cash, coupons, toothbrushes, creative exchanges - They can partner with local businesses to give away coupons for food, services, goods, etc. They can give away the Hygiene Kits, they can set up an Opportunity Prize--each kid gets a ticket per pound of candy for an opportunity drawing to win special prizes, etc.
  • Dentists send the candy to Operation Gratitude or other Military support groups
  • Operation Gratitude sends the candy to U.S. Military deployed in harm's way

Multitude Monday



Thank you Lord.  Thank you Lord.  Thank you Lord. YOu are amazing.  You are beautiful.  You are wonderful.  You give me everything I need.  You are my backbone.  You are always there for me.  You know me inside and out and know whats best for me.  You believe in me.  You are my master!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


1. Pastor Ron and his Sunday Message.  That man can preach.  He never bores anyone.  He preached yesterday about how some people do not let go of sin after accepting Jesus.  John 8:36 and Romans 6.  He said when you are in "trouble" say Jesus Christ out loud a few times and the scene will change. I tried this a couple of times this week and boy did it work. 

2. Church bake sale.  I have never stood at the front of church to say hello to everyone as they enter. This past Sunday, we had a Girlfriends In God Bake Sale to Raise money for Womens Missions.  I got there early to help sale those cakes.  It was neat to be able to say hello and smile at everyone as they entered church.  (Wish I would have taken a picture of my cake I made.  it was pretty!!!!!!)

3. Ability to talk about you Lord anytime anywhere to anyone who will listen.

4. Shawn's friend Christopher that lives a few doors down from us!!!!!!!!  Devin tags along as well.

5. Fire Safety Day at Sheppard AFB.  We really LOVED the parade in base housing and all the celebration at the BX from our local firefighters and rescue people!!!  They always go above and beyond for the military members and their families.

6.  My imagination and craftiness/artistic nature.  I love creating things.

I have found myself lately not spending as much time with him as I would like so yesterday we went and hung out. It was a wonderful refresher. That boy always holds a sweet spot in my heart.

2. Third Day and Newsboys in concert Friday. It was so neat to be in a building full of screaming christian fans all praising JESUS!!!!!!!!!!!My type of place to go.


3. Being able to give bags of food to those in need.

4. Rescheduling of the doctors appointment I had Friday at 11am. I did NOT want to go because I was saving my energy for the concert Friday night (Third Day). I prayed for it to go well at the doctor. At 9am Friday, the secretary called and said we had to reschedule for Monday because the Doctor had an emergency surgery. How cool is that??? That is God answering a small but very important to me prayer.

5. Shawn finding a VERY good friend. Shawn has often struggled with finding and keeping friends. He finally has a good friend named Chris whom lives a couple of streets down from us. Chris is the type of person I would want any of my children to be friends with. Thank you LORD!!!!!!!!!!!

6. NEW sewing machine!!!!! I do not know how to sew but I am learning. I am very confident in anything and I know I can conquer sewing. The first thing I sewed was some curtains for the kitchen. Now I am working on the childrens costumes for Trunk or Treat at church on the 31st.

7. Thank you for changing me Lord. I am giving it all to you. Holding nothing back. Hiding nothing. So many people pick and choose what they give to Father but I am trying my hardest to give him it ALL. He is the only one who can move those mountains.

8. Thank you for allowing me to see potential in everyone. Even those people who look like garbage or worthless to most. God sees us as wonderful so we should look at everyone that way. God can change them and restore them.

9. Thank you for allowing me to fill my head with positive thoughts and get rid of all the negative self talk. Most people do talk to theirselves in a negative manner but I am trying to break that. Satan will not condemn me with negative thoughts anymore. Even on my worst days Father sees me as a jewel.

10. Thank you for putting the hunger to live in your word and worship 24/7. I am hungry Lord. Thank you.
