Nabisco Coupon Money Maker at Commissary

The commissary has Nabisco 1.4 oz to 3.0 oz snacks for .25-.35 each!!! 

There was a coupon in the 8/7 Smart Source insert for .75¢/2 and $1.00/2!!!!  These coupons had no size restrictions.

So it is a .05¢ MM - .50¢ MM per coupon used depending on which coupon you have and which size item you order. 

The commissary allows you to special order items if you would like to buy in bulk.  All you need to do is call the store with the UPC # and case count of each item.

Here is the UPC for these items:
Chips Ahoy: 044000037437
Nutter Butter: 044000037451
Oreo: 044000037420
All the case counts are 48 items per case.   These are the 1.4oz bags as well that are .25¢ each.

These are also a great donation item for CDC (child day care) or AFRC (family readiness center) or for local deployment packages.

Commissary Flyers/Advertising Handouts

Do you ever see those ads in the commissary and forget to pick one up only later to realize you wish you had? 

I did this with the Feds Feed Families Campaign handout.  I was trying very hard to remember the dates for this campaign but couldn't.  I searched everywhere in the commissary on my last trip and could not figure out the end date. Then I found this link: COMMISSARY HANDOUTS/ADVERTISEMENTS. 

It is a very good resource for current promotions the commissary is having.  Like right now it is back to school time.  Or when they were having the farmers market from july 1-3.
